This is the story of my journey to motherhood. My hubby, Hal and I found out we were pregnant May 17th, 2011. Life hasnt been the same since (in a great way). I can't wait to meet little Pop Kern on January 22, 2012.

12 Weeks! We Made It!!
I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for the 12 week mark. I guess I have been waiting about 12 weeks now..and it's FINALLY here! I had this day all built up in my mind that I would instantly sprout a baby bump, have tons of energy, no morning sickness and a big neon sign that said "Pop Kern is now safe!" Well, there were no fireworks, no baby bump and no off the chart energy to note. In fact, I woke up this morning a bit nauseous and hungry..just like every other morning. I guess this huge milestone is more something we pregnant women build up in our mind but you know what..I'm still stoked to be here!! Even if I don't feel or look different- I know that my baby is now past the fragile stage and that in one week I will be in the second trimester. Now, hopefully when I have a morning in which I don't feel like crap, I wont be thinking "Oh no something is wrong" I can just be excited that I feel good. So go ahead ladies..celebrate that 12 week mark..We deserve it! Even if no one else knows why you're so excited.
