Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

Once again... I am behind on this post. But we had a wonderful Thanksgiving that we got to share with my dad and grandparents as well as a visit to Steve's dad and family. The break went by way too fast but we had a lot of fun! Of course my mom and I went Black Friday shopping! It was awesome.

How far along? 12 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 0 lbs
Sleep: Sleeping wonderfully! And can't stop napping
Best moment this week: Got to spend time with family eating stuffing!! haha
Miss anything? Staying up late... I can't even keep my eyes open after 10 now.
Food cravings: This week, stuffing.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Grocery shopping. Don't ask why, but I look at all that food and I want to puke haha
Have you started to show yet? Maybe... but still nothing really.
Gender prediction: Everyone tells me its a boy
Happy or Moody most of the time: Can I choose sleepy?
Looking forward to: Second Trimester!

11 Weeks

I have been terrible about posting this past week. We moved for most of last week and I haven't had the motivation to find my laptop power cord. (haha terrible excuse)

Anyway, Here is last weeks post!
Excuse all the crazy bright colors and we had no nails to hang this on the wall...

How far along? 11 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 0 lbs
Sleep: I sleep amazingly in our new place!
Best moment this week: We moved into our new home with room for the baby now!
Miss anything? Cooking meat without wanting to puke.
Movement: My app I follow says it is fully moving now and if I poke my stomach it will squirm in response but I can't feel a thing
Food cravings: Mexican Food!! Love love love...
Anything make you queasy or sick? Uncooked meat
Have you started to show yet? This week it's more of an inny belly now.
Gender prediction: Want a girl!
Belly button in or out? In
Happy or Moody? Happy, but moody when it comes to moving :(
Weekly wisdom: Enjoy my husband while I can keep him all to myself. And keep busy! I don't feel as sick when I am busy.
Looking forward to: Thanksgiving! I am hungry just thinking about it...

10 Weeks

This week has been a little bit crazy. I should have posted this on Monday but I have been super sick all day so it comes on Saturday instead! Also this pic is kinda terrible, but we are moving out of our apartment this week so no more cinder block dark pictures! Yay!

How far along? 10 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: -2lbs
Maternity Clothes? Nope
Stretch Marks? Nope
Sleep: I toss and turn all night long now...
Best moment this week: Telling the people at my work. They were all so excited!
Miss anything? Eating normal meals
Food cravings: Well, it's happened... I just want a pickle! And I can't stop thinking about pumpkin. I just want pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies and pumpkin cheesecake! I blame the time of year.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Still pretty much anything. It's more terrible food odors than what I am actually eating.
Have you started to show yet? I think this pic shows some belly! It goes away thought. So it was probably just a food baby.
Gender Prediction: This week I think I'm having a boy
Belly button in or out? In
Happy or moody most of the time? This week definitely moody!
Weekly Wisdom: Sleep whenever you can!
Looking forward to: Moving in to our new place next week!

We Are Having A Baby!

It's official! The word is finally out!
We can hardly contain our excitement! I have promised myself that I will be such a great blogger while I am pregnant and especially once we have a baby.
So here it goes! I want to document everything! Each week I'll be posting a new pic and new stats on the little one.

This time around I am doing an update/review of all of the weeks leading up to now.

How far along? 9 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Well... just about two weeks ago I was down close to 10 pounds (it was the nausea) and now I'm back up to normal weight!
Maternity clothes? Haven't even thought about them yet.
Stretch marks? Once again, they better not be crossing my mind for a while!
Sleep: Who knew you wake up to pee in the middle of the night ALREADY?! So not loving this...
Best moment this week: We had our first doctors visit! Everything seems healthy and we saw the baby on an ultrasound machine. It was so tiny and perfect! We got a little misty eyed...
Have you told family and friends? This is our formal announcement for those of you who we haven't seen in person yet!
Miss anything? Having a normal relationship with food. Also sleeping through the night and not worrying about my stomach every five minutes.
Food cravings: Nothing even sounds good. I am still waiting to get those cravings.
Anything making you queasy or sick: EVERYTHING! No puking involved, but I can't get through a normal day without feeling like I am about to!
Have you started to show yet? I'd like to think so. At night my belly looks way bigger than it normally does. But during the day I just have a slight pooch.
Gender prediction: Typical... I'd love a Girl, Steve really wants a Boy.
Belly button in or out? In.
Happy or moody most of the time: I hate to say it, but I'm moody. I just get so mad about constantly being sick!
Looking forward to: Getting over this nausea! They say it usually goes away around 14 weeks. So I'm counting down the days!

As you can see I have been feeling miserable. I have been through such a roller coaster of ups and downs with my nausea. I still have yet to make it through one day of feeling like I am normal again. But that's what comes with bringing a life into this world! We are so thrilled and wouldn't change any of this for the world!
