Pregnancy Update: 17-18 weeks

How far along are you? 18 weeks on June 5. How big is baby? An artichoke! About 5 1/2 inches and 6 3/4 ounces (if you’re like me and can’t picture the size of an artichoke off the top of your head!). I pretty much always look like I just ate four plates of food at a buffet now, so if you didn’t know that I’m pregnant it just looks like chub (although it’s a little more hard than flabby), but I’ve had...

Pregnancy Update: 15-16 weeks

How far along are you? 16 weeks on May 22. How big is baby? An avocado! 🥑 My boss asked me how I was doing a couple weeks ago and I happened to be looking at my pregnancy app, so I told him that it was the size of a peach and he said, “Awe, it’ll be an avocado before you know it!” He was joking, but here we are. Haha! How are you feeling? I’m still sleepy most of the time, but not as...

Pregnancy Update: 13-14 weeks

How far along are you? 14 weeks on May 8. How big is baby? A peach! 🍑 Peaches are actually my fave, so this made me happy. Still fitting into my pre-pregnancy clothes comfortably. My jeans button easily. Someone asked me the other day if I had to start shopping for new clothes yet, but it isn’t even a blip on my radar! Which is good because I actually don’t like clothes shopping very much. How are you feeling? Much better! After I hit the...

Pregnancy Update: 11-12 weeks

How far along are you? 12 weeks on April 24. How big is baby? At 12 weeks, a plum. My body still hasn’t changed much visually. Still wearing all my pre-pregnancy clothes comfortably. The only teeny bump that I have is my regular lower belly pooch, the only difference now is that I can’t suck it in. 😉 How are you feeling? Still tired a lot, but it’s bearable. My “morning” sickness at this point has basically been about three days of feeling good...

Guess what? I’m pregnant!

Yep, you read that correctly! Tyler and I are super excited to announce that Baby Van Ert will be making his or her appearance around early November. Now that the initial shock has worn off and it’s not a secret anymore, I’m even more excited. We weren’t planning on saying something this week (I’m 11 weeks now and we were planning on waiting ’til the 12 week mark), but Tyler is to antsy to keep a secret anymore, so I gave in....

Pregnancy Update: 9-10 weeks

Time for another update! Time isn’t really flying by yet, mostly because I still feel nauseous and tired most of the time, but we’re still so excited. We still haven’t told the whole world yet, so this will be going live after the news has been shared. Here’s what’s happening lately! How far along are you? 10 weeks on April 10, 2017! Estimated due date is November 6. How big is baby? A strawberry! 🍓 Again, my body really hasn’t visually changed much other...
