Bun in the Oven

That's right, as of today I am 12 weeks pregnant! It's pretty crazy to think that soon Jacob and I will be parents. As far as how I'm doing, blah! the name morning sickness is so deceiving. It should be all-day sickness. It's kinda kicking my butt, however Jacob is being great and helping me out. He's driven several times to taco bell when that is all that sounded good to me. I love him so much. I also am a bit emotional. An example, Jacob and I were marathon watching Lord of the Rings extended edition and Jacob turns to look at me and I'm bawling! It wasn't even that sad of a part, it was a fight scene lol. Will I ever feel normal?

As for how we found out I was pregnant, it's an interesting story. Some of you could probably care less so no worries if you stop reading now. I just want to record it mostly for me anyways. A little more than a year ago I went off birth control because I had heard it takes a while to get out of your system and with my family's history I figured I should start now and just use other contraceptives. Well during the time I stopped taking the pill my periods were few and far between. Those first couple months of missing my period had me buying a pregnancy test frequently. After so many negatives I figured I just wasn't having my cycle. I read online that this can be normal and take about a year to get back on schedule. Well a year rolls by and still missing my monthly friend. This is when I start to worry. We had started talking more seriously about trying to have a baby but I was freaked that I wouldn't be able to. So I called my doctor and made an appointment. Well they took my weight, height, blood pressure, and had me pee in a cup. I didn't think anything of it because, to be honest I had ruled out the idea of becoming pregnant until my period came back. I sit down and start telling the doctor my story and she says, surprise you ARE pregnant!!! First shock, then excitement, then a little fear. Was I almost one of those girls on the I Didn't know I was Pregnant show (if you haven't seen an episode it's pretty crazy). Because of my missing friend my doctor couldn't tell me how far along I was. She made an appointment for an ultra sound where I found out I was only 6 weeks along. So this little baby is already sneaky and giving me a hard time lol but we are loving it.

I want

How cute is this pillow?
San Francisco Pillow - Handmade City of San Francisco Throw Pillow
With the end of 2nd year approaching, i'm realizing how little time we have left here in San Francisco. While I may have hated (maybe not hated, but strongly disliked) it here a good portion of 1st year I've come to love the city. With all it's diversity, great shopping, sight seeing, and temperate weather San Francisco will always hold a special place in my heart. I know, I know I still have a little more than a year left which is why I'm going to make a list of everything we need to do before we move.

  • Visit Big Sur
  • Visit Point Bonita Lighthouse
  • Hike the Marin Headlands trails
  • go camping again
  • Kayak near Sausalito
  • Go to the park more often
  • Revisit Alcatraz- the tour is surprisingly fun
I'll add more as they come to me.
