Biggity Bump

17w 4 d bump. I know it will just get bigger, but some days I feel like its as big as it can get! I am going to assume I havent seen the end of the growing bump just yet.

Oh and I threw in a comparison shot. Crazy!

Oh Geez....its you again.

Hello Blog World! I have been super busy and super tired, I've neglected this thing. I think this week will actually maybe have a belly pic! I cannot wait to see my progress in pictures :)

How far along? 17 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: 6 lbs I think.

Maternity clothes? totally

Stretch marks? well, not from baby

Sleep: Its better. I found out that when I am a total lazy butt and lay around on the couch all day, it makes my back hurt worse. When my back hurts, I can't sleep. I guess my body enjoys working its ass off :)

Best moment this week: My nephew's birthday party. Everyone got together with a surprise visit from my sister from Nashville and I got a lot of ohhs and awws. I sometimes like to be the center of attention, what can I say :)

Movement: yep. On 17 weeks on the dot, I felt flutters and then they faded away. It has to be what it was.

Food cravings: beef. Sounds gross but oh so heavenly. I crave cheeseburgers all the time!

Gender: We find out in 3 weeks. Mother's intuition still says girl. Vote on the left to give your 2 cents! (Thanks to all who have voted!...looks like you think a girl too :)

Labor Signs: I sure hope not anytime soon!

Belly Button in or out? in, but my belly is flattening out. Not by any means close to flattening, but I barely have a chub roll anymore ;P

What I miss: sleeping on my back

What I am looking forward to: My drs appt next Thursday and the baby's heartbeat again!

Weekly Wisdom: Relish the days I feel great! I tend to worry about it but I am learning to love them!

Milestones: just making it this far. Who would have known!

Okay so my title...yeah, morning sickness decided to return around 16 weeks and has graced me with its presence every day or so. It sucks and I hope it goes away soon!

Happy anniversary to me!

Two blissful years later, I am still the happiest girl in the world.

We have been through so much and yet we are stronger than ever. I love him more now than I ever have. I cannot wait to make him a Daddy.

Tonight consists of our favorite Red Robin dinner, and probably some cuddles on the couch. I'll be getting pretty today so maybe I will post a belly pic...its getting a lot bigger and its pretty hard! My stomach has always been squishy so I feel like I have been working out :)

I love you Travis! Heres to eternity...

P.S. Take my poll to the left if you get a chance...I would love to see what everyone thinks! :)

I will try to...

Figure out the darn dog post. For some reason it won't let me copy and paste a Word doc. Oh well!

Happy Belated Mother's Day! (this is long!!)

I was planning on updating last week, but with finals, work, and a doctors appointment, I decided to wait until now. Mothers day was wonderful and Travis did not disappoint when it came to presents! Now, we are not the type to go out and get expensive things. We very rarely spend money on presents with the exception of Christmas and this holiday was no different. What I did get was a adorable Word document written from Baby and our boys, our Labs. Apparently, according to Travis, Baby really love some Fresh Prince of Bel-Air...and if you know our dogs...this is very true to them :) This may be long, but I wanted to share!

P.S. My husband is the most creative and smart person I know :)

"Baby's version of journey to Mommy's belly"

Now, this is a story all about how
My body is getting flipped-turned upside down
I'd like to take a minute
So don't be a dummy
I'll tell you, mommy, how I became the baby in your tummy.

In Southern Indiana, formed and raised
In daddy's testes is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin in an environment that was cool
Bouncing around everywhere when daddy shot B-Ball outside of school
When a few thousand sperm
Who were up to some good
Said, Let's break away from this neighborhood
I filled with fright and got a little scared
But I said, "Forget it, I'll go down this tunnel and see what's there!"

I whistled down the tube full of fear
The journey was fresh then it became clear
If anything, this opportunity was rare
So I thought, "I'll go where it takes me, I don't care!"

I arrived at the ovaries around February 7th or 8th
And I yelled to my fellow sperm, "Yo, homies catch you later"
First one to fertilize the egg, I was finally there
To settle my throne in mommy's tummy until i breathe air

Now, to the doggies... :)

Now without any more interruptions, here is the survey.

How far along? 15 weeks one day!

Total weight gain/loss: 5 lbs according to the doctor's scale

Maternity clothes? totally

Stretch marks? well, not from baby

Sleep: Travis has officially become the sleep nazi. I stupidly told him that the baby book told me to sleep on my left side, not on my back and if I can help it, to not sleep on my right side. Well, now Travis will seriously wake up in the middle of the night if I roll over and just say "Left". Like the baby I am, I huff and puff and roll over unwillingly to my left. Its quite comical.

Best moment this week: Mother's Day with my husband and my family. I will post a pic of the pretty figurine my sister got me on the sly. I was seriously shopping with her and she bought it! How did I not know!!

Movement: Not that I know of, I havent felt what I thought was movement 2 weeks ago again, so that may have been gas?

Food cravings: ground beef, thats about it.

Gender: I still think girl and so does Travis...we find out in 5 weeks!

Labor Signs: I sure hope not anytime soon!

Belly Button in or out? in

What I miss: sleeping on my back

What I am looking forward to: Movement!

Weekly Wisdom: Go with the flow...I dont have many symptoms any more and I relish in it instead of freaking out. Besides, I am really starting to feel and look pregnant!

Milestones: My first Mother's (to be) day ever pregnant!
