That, my friends, is a picture of a tiny human going in my belly! I’m pregnant! He or she is pretty cute, huh? I’m pretty sure she/he’s waving at us in that sonogram picture! That was at my 12 week appointment, and the little peach was 3 inches long. I’ve done a little foreshadowing on the blog, I posted 22 gender reveal ideas as I was searching for some clever ways to make that announcement when the time comes!
I’m trying to be a good documenter over here. Well, honestly I’m trying to be a good pregnant girl. You know not eating raw eggs (no cookie dough?!), sushi, adult beverages, the list goes on and on. I’ve been pretty lucky as far as the whole “How am I feeling?” thing goes. No morning sickness. Well, those vitamins didn’t make me feel very good, but I finally figured out that if I take one right before I go to bed, then it doesn’t bother me. Oh and I’m sleepy, super sleepy. My eyes start to close everyday at 3-ish and I have to lay down for 30 minutes! I guess my first trimester is over, so they tell me I’m supposed to get a lot of energy back! We’ll see about that! I don’t exactly have a baby bump to share yet, I’ve gained a few pounds but really only noticeable to me (and my jeans!), see:
So, let’s talk about finding out your pregnant, the initial test. Were you overwhelmed with excitement or scared to death? I’m just super curious because I was 100% in the scared/ shocked to death category. We always knew we wanted to have a kid or 2, but it was certainly not in the next oh 9 month plan. (Little one, if you ever read this, you are a very loved surprise!) Not that we really have a plan, so yea. We feel very lucky/ blessed/ fortunate that we are having a baby! I just feel so… hmm… nervous? I mean I’m going to be in charge of caring for a human?! Eek. I can barely keep plants alive and feeding Andy and I actual meals proves to be tricky most nights. Here’s the fun picture I shared last week on my personal facebook page:
So, expect lots of baby things happening here on C.R.A.F.T.! And the baby fest is starting tomorrow! I’ll be sharing an awesome round up of pregnant Halloween costumes! I so wish I was going to have a bump for Halloween… maybe I will? Oh and I’ve got a secret pinterest board all about the little bambino’s nursery that I can’t wait to share with y’all too! Oh baby, this is gonna be fun (pun intended)! Anyone else pregnant? Due at the end of March 2014? Pregnant tips? I’d love to hear!
UPDATE: Here’s more on the baby front: The black and white nursery plan, painting the igloo, bambino gets a crib, the great rug hunt, the big bad mirror, and the gender reveal party.

I was, of course, worried about getting through the first trimester, and once I got there, I think I was finally on board with the “I’m gonna be a Mommy thing”, LOL, and just took it one day at a time from there. I had awful morning sickness up until week 12. Well, not really, morning… more like, 3 pm — evening sickness.
My official due date is next Tuesday and I’m ready! We were technically trying, but it definitely happened really fast at the same time. Whew. And it’s very exciting! Scary, nerve-wracking, worrisome, etc. but also very exciting!!! I can’t believe we are going to have a baby!!
I’m due in March too! Mid to late March. I just saw your nursery post, oh my gosh, you’re WAY ahead of me! I have a room, that’s it. Good job on the room, it looks great and congrats!

Megan McQuade says
Congratulations! I’m due on the 21st of March 2014, what date have you been given? Not long came across this page but I love it!
Congratulations Jamie! I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well. You’ll be such a fun mom. I’m eager to see all of the crafty things you make for baby. Will you be finding out the sex of the baby?
Bonnie Ferguson says
Congratulations, Jamie! I’m a few days behind reading your newsletter and had to pop over and see all the details. I’m due a few weeks after you in mid-April with our seventh! I kill plants, too, by the way, and I’ve managed to raise two healthy, happy children to adulthood. I’m still working on the two teenagers, one 1st grader, one preschooler and our little bonus baby. It’s a crazy, busy life, but I couldn’t imagine it any other way! I am so very blessed. My oldest is almost 24, so it’s been a long time since I was expecting my first. I think my best advice is to try to slow down, even if it’s just for a few minutes each day, take a deep breath and soak in the moment that you’re in. (Adding, too, that I’m really jealous of your lack of morning sickness. Bleh. I’m still so sick all day long.)
Jamie Dorobek says
Congrats, Bonnie!! I love how you call him/her a bonus baby 🙂
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! This is going to be such and exciting and scary time for both you and your wonderful honey. My best advice…. buy the book “What to Expect When You Are Expecting” and use it as a guide, not as the final truth. You will know what is right for you. I think the thing that was the most memorable was feeling the two of them moving about in my belly. Yes, I have twin daughters that are now 20 years old. Take lots of pictures as someone else posted and do rest. But most of all, enjoy this time, it is a gift from God.

Congratulations! I was so happy the last time I was pregnant 43 years ago. This was before sonograms and all the new stuff and before you were even born. Enjoy every moment. Blessings
Congratulations!! So very happy for you both. I remember when I found out, I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to tell everyone. Good luck!
Cindy Eikenberg says
Congratulations, Jamie!!! Very excited for you!
Amy M says
Congrats Jamie! You’re going to be the cutest pregnant lady ever!
Congratulations! I’m due in March as well. 🙂 I am so envious that you’re feeling well, that’s pretty awesome! (I can barely make it from bed to couch and back again . . . being upright makes me throw up.) Can’t wait to hear more about the little one!
Jamie Dorobek says
Fun! Congrats to you too, Rachel! And I’m so sorry you don’t feel well… that can’t be fun.
Congratulations. This is so exciting!!!
Kaitlin Jenkins says
Aww! Congrats Jamie! Can’t wait to see what cute posts you come up with 😉
Congratulations! When I took my test it was 4:00 am and I was stunned to see the lines come up so fast. I immediately woke up my husband and told him. He asked me to take another test and when I told him I only had the one, he asked me to rinse it off and try again! I went to work that morning walking on air, he stayed home in bed with a migraine! Haha! Now he is the full time stay at home Dad, the shock finally wore off I guess.
Jamie Dorobek says
Rinse it off, hahha 🙂 Silly boys!
Congratulations!!! Happy to hear you’re feeling good. Of course, looking forward to the craft projects to come.
