My baby bun in the oven..

Awww pregnancy, it's been quite the journey so far. I'm now into my 9th week, ALMOST through my first trimester! Morning sickness, fatigue, bloating, and some other non glamorous effects are just some of the small sacrifices of this beautiful little person growing inside of me. It is all worth it though, even though I have to remind myself on days that I'm laying over the toilet, lol. It is crazy how my body is starting to change ALREADY. My jeans are fitting a snug bit tighter BUT my sweet sweet husband keeps reminding me, its baby gain not fat gain. He makes me feel so beautiful everyday. The first trimester is awkward because no one can tell that your pregnant yet but you see the changes in your body and how your belly begins to expand and become a little more fuller looking to your eyes. I honestly can say that I can't wait to really begin showing so that I just don't look puffy.

I have started my job and let me tell you, three 12hr shifts in a row are killer. I'm exhausted by the end of those shifts and my feet are killing me. I think the worst thing is is that I have cut out caffeine so NO COFFEE. But I have been told that I will regain my energy soon so I'm looking forward to that.

I was so excited a few days ago. My mom sent me our first baby outfits and baby blanket! They were adorable! Little matching outfits that were themed with sweet little ducks. So cute. She bought neutral colors so that it could go either way. My first Doctor's app't is Nov 5th! I hope that I get to hear the heartbeat! It makes me cry just thinking about it. I love this child.

Accomplishment!

I passed my nursing NCLEX board exam! I'm officially a licensed registered nurse. I took my exam last thursday and found out at exactly 8:00 am this morning. It was the hardest and most intense exam I have ever taken and I literally buried myself on the couch doing nothing but watching movies and sleeping the last two days awaiting my results . I was so stressed out and was sure that I had failed BUT in some little place inside of me had hope. So when I saw that I had passed this morning I literally almost vomited while crying in happiness at the same time. It's a feeling I can't explain. It's an amazing accomplishment, my accomplishment.

There has been a huge weight lifted off my shoulder and now I can relax, be proud of myself, and begin to concentrate on bigger and more precious things in my future.
