Pregnancy Weeks 13, 14, 15

I'm so sorry its been so long, but the good news is, we finally moved!!! What a crazy few weeks it has been! We moved about two weeks ago, and I have been busy cleaning, organizing, baking christmas cookies, decorating, etc. We still arent finished. (the darn holidays really messed up our organizing schedules...heehee) anyways, Im not sure I will be able to remember all of the details from the last few weeks, but I will surely try.

How far *currently: 15 weeks 6 days

Total weight gain: I havent weighed myself recently but Im sure will all the holiday goodies I gain a few.

Maternity clothes: work pants, and stretchy pj or yoga pants

Sleep: getting restless, I did receive a maternity pillow from my in-laws. It's by Sealy. It's called the Sweet Pea 2 in 1 maternity/nursing pillow. I didnt want the snoogle because it has the head pillow part, and I have many neck issues so this one works pretty well so far! its from Amazon

 Best moment the past few weeks: moving, the holidays with friends and family.

Miss anything? cocktails, coffee

Food cravings: Yellow or honey mustard, and pickles--not together.

Anything make you queasy or sick? not really, just stinky people...

Gender prediction: BOY! We'll find out on wednesday!

Movement: Nothing yet

Wedding ring: On

Symptoms: headaches here and there, I've been fighting a sinus cold, so that could be the reason for the headaches. Other than that, just super duper emotional. My mom bought me a baby bottle started kit, and I cried my eyes just seemed so surreal that I will be using them on my baby!! I found them on amazon.

The First Years Breastflow Starter Set

Mood: Emotional, but good.

Looking forward to: My ultrasound on wednesday jan 2!! I cant wait to find out if my predictions are right!!! I also have a midwife appointment that day as well.

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a wonderful New year!!!!
Much love,

Pregnancy Week 12

Today marks the end of my 12th week, and I feel like I actually have a little bump! I never would have known if it wasnt for a holiday dress up day at work. We were able to wear festive attire, and I tried on everything I could think of...Nothing fit very nice. I just felt fat. My normal clothes don't fit, and my maternity clothes are too big yet. I know most women go through this, but I guess I was just was surprised. Anyways, I settled on a red polo and green undershirt, and sure enough, my belly was more round than normal! :)

I had my midwife appointment on Wednesday. I had to turn in a 3day food diary and she basically told me I need to eat more! I laughed, first time I've ever thought about that!! She added that it should definitely be more protein and more veggies, but more food in general! Ha! We also heard little one's heart beat. It was just for a quick second, but it was most definitely there! I laughed because my friend Billie was crying, and then LO moved and we couldn't find it again. Oh well, that was definitely proof enough for me! Heart rate was at 130. Even more evidence that LO is a boy! :) My midwife also pulled out the Baby-Egg calendar. It was so neat to see the real size of my baby! Also the egg of your current week is the approx. size of your uterus! 

How far along? 12 weeks

Total weight gain: +2 pounds from PPweight

Maternity clothes: Just pants, but apparently I need to find something more... 

Stretch marks: nope

Sleep: pretty normal, only wake up once to pee, some random dreams, but mostly just normal

Best moment this week: Hearing baby's heartbeat!!!

Miss anything? coffee

Food cravings: nothing in particular

Anything make you queasy/sick? taking my vitamins. I've tried taking them at night, but then it keeps me up. I've added echinacea, zinc and vitamin C since I've been fighting a cold. And I always take them after I eat breakfast and before I leave for was the closest I've come to throwing up my entire pregnancy.

Gender prediction: Boy!

Fetal movement: I thought maybe the other morning, but I doubt it.

Wedding ring: On

Symptoms: pretty light this week again. My breasts are sore again, but more so on the nipple and surrounding area than the sides.

Mood: Good

Looking forward to: moving in downstairs and finally decorating for the holidays!! Holiday baking! Wrapping gifts!

My next midwife appointment is Jan 2, and I'm trying to schedule a gender ultrasound the same day! Gosh I can't wait!!

Pregnancy Week 11

We put up our Christmas Light outside of our house. Looks so nice! Old fashioned multicolored C9 lights! Now if only we could get inspected so we could start moving and decorating downstairs! This week I did get my fluff mail! And I love all the covers I bought. I can't wait to buy the prefolds and prep it all.

Took the intelligender test Sunday morning, swirled and waited...prediction was a BOY! :) Scott was happy, now we'll have to wait a few weeks til we can really find out. 


How far along? 11 Weeks

Total weight gain: the same--between 0-5lbs fluctuating.

Maternity Clothes: Just pants.

Stretch Marks: nope

Sleep: Getting better and better!

Best moment this week: getting my fluff mail!

Miss anything? coffee

Food cravings: Orange Juice! Peach and blueberry smoothies (made with oj, of course)

Anything make you queasy/sick? nothing in particular.

Gender prediction: if the Intelligender test was right, that would mean I have been right all along! :)

Wedding ring: On

Symptoms: pretty sparse, dizzy spells but I think it was from fighting off an illness.

Mood: Great!

Looking forward to: My midwife appointment next Wednesday when I'll hear the heartbeat! :)

Have a wonderfully festive day!!!
