19 Weeks...Good News and Bad News...

Good news!! I am halfway through the pregnancy!!! Bad news!!! I am only halfway through the pregnancy!

So I'm at the halfway point and feeling better and better, although fatter and fatter.  I know it is all for a good cause and I should enjoy pregnancy, I'm trying.  Just having some body image issues along with the joy of growing a baby!  It is amazing to me that so many people are so different when carrying a baby in their belly! How can I look ready to deliver when other 19 week pregnant mamas can still wear their regular jeans? I don't get it!!!

So what are the highlights of this week?...here goes.

SLEEP:  I am able to stay up until 9 now, not feeling quite as exhausted.  Still wake up 3-4 times a night to pee.

BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: I've loved watching the boys be protective of me.  Logan talks to the baby and rubs my belly.  He is so sweet!

FOOD CRAVINGS: Mexican and ceasar salad with pickled beets.


MOVEMENT:  was only feeling occasional flutters but today felt my first little thump! awesome!

WHAT I MISS: sleeping through the night and my size 8 jeans (just keeping it real!)

WHAT I LOOK FORWARD TO: meeting this little one!!

SYMPTOMS/NEW THINGS THIS WEEK: heartburn has already started, ugh...I go from nausea to heartburn.  Day 6 without Zofran though!!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

18 Weeks

Our Ultrasound went great! It is always so amazing to see 10 fingers and 10 toes, healthy baby moving all around! I was so nervous.  I hadn't felt any flutters of movement all week so it was so nice to finally see my baby on ultrasound.  Although I had that little bit of hope for a girl, I am thrilled that we will be having a third boy.  It's what I already know and I up for it!  The boys are excited that they will have a baby brother to teach baseball and video games.  I am feeling pretty good.  Tired a lot, still some headaches and nausea, but overall,  pretty good.  I've gained too much weight and just don't feel like doing anything about it right now.  That is discouraging. I am excited to start tackling the nursery!! We don't have to paint the office now that we know it's a boy.  We will leave it the cool orange that is already is and go with that.  Maybe a jungle theme or something!  Happy Wednesday!!

Yesterday was my birthday! I couldn't think of a better gift than shopping at the local Garden Spot and re-doing my yard for fall!!! Although, yesterday did consist of pedicures, lunch with mom, gramma, and sisters, and then out for dinner with my hubby and boys! I always find joy and peace in yardwork!! Call me crazy, it's my therapy.  Hope you are having a great week!!

16 weeks

Been crazy this week...migraines, throwing up, hormonal...I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow and will feel much better after hearing baby's heartbeat.  Trying to wean off Zofran so throw up every morning but doing ok during the day after I get food in me.  Spent an amazing day outside doing yard work but totally over did it...sore neck and crampy tonight.  Lunch date tomorrow with my twin and family for our birthday! Really looking forward to my favorite place, Copeland's!!!  Feeling little flutters this week and in awe of the miracle growing inside of me!
