#RickerPartyof3: First Trimester Chat

Hi lovies! Today, I thought it would be fun for this watermelon seed of mine and I to check in with you for a bumpdate/ trimester recap! 

How Many Weeks? 
I am 14 weeks today! 

How Big is Baby?
The baby is the size of a plum weighing in at .49oz and 2.09 inches long.

Boy or Girl?
Still unknown to us! Hopefully we will be finding out in 2-3 weeks! We have decided to go for a 4D ultrasound and the place we are going has a 90% rate of being able to tell at 16 weeks! 

How many people know?
Now, our whole families and everyone that follows me on social media! We decided to announce it to the world on New Years Eve! 

How is Momma Feeling?
Honestly, I have felt really great. I have definitely been way more exhausted that pre-watermelon seed but I am not complaining about the extra naps and rest-brownie points to hubby for encouraging it too! As far as symptoms go, earlier on around 6-7 weeks I had a few bad nausea spells but they dissipated quickly.  

How is Dad Feeling?
You guys...John has been amazing. since I have been sleeping more, he has really helped make sure all the housework gets done from laundry and dishes to deep cleaning. He is also SO sweet and makes sure that I have everything I need and if theres something I want, he doesn't hesitate to run and grab it. He's definitely excited and I am loving it! 

oh boy. I have really only had one outrageous craving...deviled eggs. I don't know what made me even think about them but, the other day I was sitting on the couch and suddenly got the worst craving for deviled eggs. After I got my fix of those, I then wanted the Honey BBQ fritos twists. Once both of those were consumed, all was right in my world. 

meat. we normally eat a lot of chicken dishes in our house. I will still make them for John and that doesn't bother me but, I typically won't eat it with him. I will eat all the sides or snack on something else in the house but for some reason, meat is just not appealing to me right now. 

Excited! Now that we are past the dreaded 12 week mark, excitement is over shadowing fear and uncertainty! I am so anxious to find out the gender and to start shopping for this little peanut! I am also feeling so showered with love from my family and John's. Both of our momma's have been so sweet and text me frequently for updates! I think it is safe to say they are excited about their first grandchild! 


  1. Your cravings!! I can't wait to see what I will crave! Aww first grandchild how exciting!!

  2. Congratulations on your new little watermelon seed!! <3
    ps. Your cravings are hilarious!! :)

  3. This is such a cute update! I'm on my third pregnancy and was just thinking I need to do a blog update...this is inspiring and so simple! It's fun to remember these things down the road. I documented a lot with my first, less with my second, and now with my third I'm just asking myself when I'm going to get Monday's dinner dishes done (it's Wednesday). Lol!
