13 Weeks



Baby is officially the size of shrimp..huh? Last week it was supposed to be the size of a lime? Lime vs shrimp - I think lime is bigger. Anyway...this lil' shrimp sure has quite the attitude in there making this momma not feel very well. Hopefully next week SHE (just guessing here) shapes up.

How far along? 13 Weeks
Total weight gain: a few pounds...enough to make my pants uncomfortable...but not enough for my belly to look pregnant yet, just chubby!
Maternity clothes? no yet! need to convince my hubby to take me shopping
Stretch marks? none yet 
Sleep: I can sleep just fine - fall asleep and wake up with nausea
Best moment this week: our appointment on 2/16. Heard the heartbeat again, love the sound!

Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? Missing feeling well! I'm suppose to be over that by about 3 ago, but just haven't been able to kick the terrible nausea and extreme, extreme tiredness.
Movement: none

Food cravings: Not really, still can eat pizza anytime!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still cannot stand the look of raw chicken (who likes looking at that anyway?).
Gender prediction: Debatable! Grace really, really thinks it's going to be a boy. Cody's just hoping.

Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: feeling really yucky all the time, pukey, tired, and easily out of breath.
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: Good mood, unless it's after 6:00 p.m....then I get really sick feeling and exhausted.
Looking forward to: Our next appointment, looking more pregnant, and feeling better!



Terrible of me...I still haven't had my camera out in about a month to take pictures of our little miss. And I still need to get photos uploaded from San Diego. I actually have a good excuse, I'm waiting to share pictures with my Momma so that I can post all at once.

12 weeks

If this baby is a little lime right now, I don't want to know what I'll feel like when they are the size of a lemon - will probably act sour too! EEEkkk...let's hope I get better soon.

How far along? 12 Weeks
Total weight gain: a few pounds - probably 4 already, could have been the not-so-great habits I was in before finding out I was prego
Maternity clothes? no yet...put on a cotton skirt today and it was heaven though. Love no binding pants!
Stretch marks? none yet 
Sleep: I can sleep just fine - fall asleep and wake up with nausea
Best moment this week: telling Grace that she was going to be a big sister. It was the sweetest thing EVER. Wish I had it on video. She was so absolutely thrilled and happy and excited for our family. Best quote..."Mommy, how did that baby get in your tummy." "God put it there." "Mommy, why didn't God want it to just be me?" Ekkkkk!!! "Well, because God knew that you'd be a great big sister and wanted our family to be a little bit bigger." And she was satisfied with that answer - thank goodness!

Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? feeling good...not having to stand in front of my closet for 15 minutes in the a.m. - Okay, I might have done that before too, now it's just even more aggravating.
Movement: none

Food cravings: No cravings really, but I could eat pizza anytime I feel like nothing sounds good.
Anything making you queasy or sick: lots of queasy anyway, raw chicken...apparently mustard and relish on hot dogs sent me over the edge at a basketball game. There was no out either!
Gender prediction: Debatable - I'm still going for girl...but with how yucky I've been feeling, might be a boy this time!

Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: feeling really yucky all the time, pukey, tired, and easily out of breath.
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly in a good mood.
Looking forward to: actually feeling like my belly looks like a bump, rather than just thick and chubby.

Surprise!!!

Well guess what??





Our family is growing!! :) In August, our sweet little girl Grace will become a big sister. Our due date is August 26th, and we're anxiously awaiting for April to come around so we can tell Grace if she's having a sister or a brother. I'm almost to 13 weeks already, and am totally ready for the second trimester! Ready to get out of this yucky feeling phase.

Grace has been so excited to hear the news that she's going to be a sibling, she has already been taking care of baby and I. She's doesn't miss a lick, and never lets anything just slip by, so it could be an interesting 6 months with her watchful eye!

I always envisioned just one child for us, but Cody and Grace broke me! They eventually had me convinced it wouldn't be so bad! So we decided since we're young and healthy we'll give it a shot. Well, it was in the cards for us to have another and we couldn't be more excited. Even me! It will be such a joy to watch Grace and her sibling together, I cannot wait. 

I love the posts that another blogger did throughout her pregnancy, and I will be doing something similar with her same set of questions she asks. I might not post weekly, but I'll sure keep you all updated on Baby #2's progress. 

Thanks for all of your love and support!
