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.


  1. Congratulations! I have never been pregnant (not YET, at least....) but definitely have watched all of my friends hit that fantastic 12 week mark! Have a wonderful day!

  2. London have you tried sea bands for nausea if you are still feeling sick? They have worked for me for fishing in costa rica and then with the meds that I have been on. I learned that little trick from my pregnant friends. So excited for you and hal!

  3. I haven't but I will definitely test them out! Thanks so much Laura! I hope you're doing well.
