Goodbye first tri! belly pics and surveys

Well, I think its official. I feel huge! And its just going to get bigger! Oh well, I had my first belly pat from MIL so I guess it is starting to resemble a bump...Cute thing was is that she hesitated at first like, am I supposed to do this. I said it was fine and she patted away. Its only accepted from family members though :)

How far along? 13 weeks 4 days

Total weight gain/loss: I think I am now up 4 lbs. The scale fluctuates

Maternity clothes? I am pretty much in full maternity now. We went out and bough a few thing to hold me over.

Stretch marks? well, not from baby

Sleep: I get up multiple times to use the restroom and can never get back to sleep! I am just uncomfortable!

Best moment this week: Hands down, making it into the second trimester!

Movement: Call me crazy, and that I may very well be, but I think I felt some "tap, tap, taps" It was a feeling I have never felt before, and it kinda made my heart stop. I felt it while trying to go to bed. If this is some movement, I am in love!

Food cravings: Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries :) I had a hankering for a cheeseburger last night really bad, and I got it!

Gender: FIL, Sister and nephew all say boy, everyone else thinks girl. I will be scheduling my big U/S this next Wednesday!

Labor Signs: I sure hope not anytime soon!

Belly Button in or out? in

What I miss: my sleep

What I am looking forward to: Actual movement that I know is movement, my next appointment next Wednesday, my energy back and the end of the semester!

Weekly Wisdom: have lots of faith in your body and God...those things will pull you through.

Milestones: made it to the 2nd tri and announced it to the world (via Facebook and Myspace of course :)

I am a bit slow this week...

How far along? 12 weeks 4 days

Total weight gain/loss: still up 3 lbs total

Maternity clothes? well, I am in full maternity pants now, thanks to my sister who gave me 2 pairs of Gap Mat jeans, which brings my grand total of pants up to 4 which I interchange ;)

I did clean out my closet last night and only put the clothes that I can actually wear back in...I now have a bag full of "skinnier" clothes in the baby's closet....see you in about 7 months!

Stretch marks? well, not from baby

Sleep: I still get up 3 x or so to pee so its always interrupted

Best moment this week: I am finally off the progesterone suppositories!! I called my doc at 12 weeks and she said no more! I feel accomplished, albeit a bit scared...

Movement: S/He is moving in there, but I cant feel it yet!

Food cravings: Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries. Oh an hot dogs!

Gender: My sister dropped a bomb on me and said she thinks its now a boy. My 4 year old nephew thinks so too. Everyone else, including me, thinks girl

Labor Signs: I sure hope not anytime soon!

Belly Button in or out? in

What I miss: not much...I now love being pregnant and knowing I have a beautiful baby cooking in there :)

What I am looking forward to: the end of the semester in 2 weeks, Travis' cousin finally mowing grass this week! Travis says I absolutely cannot mow now that I am pregnant, and he hates it with a passion, so we "hired" his cousin. I hope he doesn't hate us by the end of the summer...most of the backyard is a hill and we only have a push mower :)

Weekly Wisdom: have lots of faith in your body and God...those things will pull you through.

Milestones: less than 1 week until the 2nd trimester and 2 weeks until the next appt!

Friday, April 17, 2009 it is getting bigger! and Easter pics!

These are my adorable nieces and nephew. Makayla is 9(oldest sister's daughter), Bailey is 2 and Hayden is 4 (almost 5) (they are brother and sister). They are growing up so fast! We spent Easter weekend in Nashville, TN at my oldest sister's home, and we had a blast!

Now on to the bloat/bump!
Excuse the messy room and my pocket coming out of my jeans...I took like 20 pics until I got one I liked, and didnt feel like doing it again :)

Its like the energizer keeps growing and growing! I feel like a whale but in a good way. The bump/bloat whatever is visible at work, but I still have my secret. I think they must think I am getting fat! I am telling my boss this weekend, so wish me luck! He will be happy for me, but its still kind of nerve racking! Then, I will probably wait another week (if I can) to tell the rest of the hotel staff.

I can finally see it getting bigger and thats exciting, even if its not completely baby yet!

What I miss: Crazy enough, strong symptoms. Mine have dwindled and my mind goes to the worst spot. Then, God thinks its funny, and I run to the toilet to puke.

What I am looking forward to: getting some sleep! Between work and school, I have been losing a lot of it.

Weekly Wisdom: enjoy the days you feel great, they don't always last long.

Milestones: 2 weeks until 2nd trimester!!

**bump/bloat pic to come tomorrow or so. Travis did look at me the other day smiling and said "I cannot believe how big your stomach is getting!" Of course, being pregnant, I took it the wrong way, but I feel like there may be a change, so we shall see in the pic!

Say hello to...

Our beautiful, developing, adorable, heart beating little baby!

My appt went great, and I would not have gotten this u/s today had I not mentioned the teensiest bit of spotting I had a few weeks ago. It was barely anything, but I like to tell the doc everything, so I told her. She told me, "Well, I was gonna try the doppler, but since insurance pays for your u/s if your have spotting, no matter how big or small, lets go see your baby!"

I was so nervous and excited! Everything has been going pretty awesome so far, but I still had a nervousness at the pit of my stomach. I get ready for the u/s ( fun! :) and I hold my breath. The tech doesnt say anything for a bit and then all of a sudden she says, "oh boy, this is a cute baby!" I started laughing and tearing up, and then when she turned on the sound to hear the heart, I lost it. I was crying and telling her how I have never made it this far before, and she was too sweet. She showed me the babies long arms (which you cannot see in the u/s) and both legs, and even little ribs! I am over the moon! She also asked me what they thought my due date was, and I told her 11-1-09 and she said "Well, this doesnt happen too often, but you are exactly right, the due date is 11-01-09!" Pays to know your cycles I guess :)

Travis didnt go with me this time, but he will be there at the 20 week appt. I go back in 1 month on May 7th, and that time we will just do the doppler. I am just so happy that this has been one uneventful pregnancy, and I just hope it stays that way!

YAY!! (sorry, I am just way tooo excited!)

I am officially....

The MOST pregnant I have ever been...and I must say, it feels ggggrrrreeeaaattt! (said in a Tony the Tiger voice of course ;)

My doctor's app't is on Thursday at 8 am, and I am scared out of my mind. I go back and forth from thinking everything will be perfect, to thinking everything will go terribly wrong. I am a basket case! I feel totally pregnant, m/s has kicked my ass to the fullest, the exhaustion is ridiculous, and my hormones are whack, but I still have these fears. I know they wont go away until I am about to be due, with my past and all, and I just wish that I could be naive about it all. Once upon a time, pregnancy was exciting. Now, it just scares the shit out of me. I still say my prayers about 20 times a day and constantly give the little one some "pep talks", so I hope this does the trick! :)

Heres my survey....

How far along? 10 w 1 d

Total weight gain/loss: not so sure, I refuse to be weighed until my appt :)

Maternity clothes? jeans mostly

Stretch marks? well, not from baby

Sleep: pretty good until I wake up to pee 3xs a night

Best moment this week: being the most pregnant I have ever been!

Movement: S/He is moving in there, but I cant feel it yet!

Food cravings: Strawberries, lays potato chips, water

Gender: I am leaning toward girl, along with everyone else that knows. Who knows though.

Labor Signs: I sure hope not anytime soon!

Belly Button in or out? in

What I miss: nothing, I wouldnt trade my baby for anything in the world!

What I am looking forward to: My appointment 04-09...T minus 3 days and counting!

Weekly Wisdom: Everything is fine until given a reason to think it is not (by a dr.)

Milestones: 10w 1d....'nuf said.

9 weeks and 4 days

This is what I look like sucking in even. It is more round when I let it all hang out. I feel fat, but what else do you expect from a plus size girl like myself...I wish it was baby and not bloat! :)

I decided to take these pics to show my plus size pregnancy. I wanted to make sure I actually look pregnant and not just fat. DH told me that I should only post these on weeks I actually look like I got more of a bump, but I'm not listening (nana nana boo boo ::sticks out tongue::) I like seeing my body change, if its only by a slight bit. Oh well!

I had a scare last night. I woke up around 3:30 for one of many nightly pee sessions, and I was crampy. I know this is normal, but it felt weird so I got up, made sure no spotting (none thankfully!) and drank a bottle of water. They miraculously went away! I realized that I had barely drank any water yesterday because I had gone out to eat and been at school, so my body needed it. So word to the wise...drink your H2O! Its not a necessity for no reason! :)
