16 Weeks!

Time is flying! This will be a short post because I have bronchitis and pink eye. Fun stuff! I have my 16w appt on Monday and will update after that as well. The big u/s is only a week away!!!! I am so excited! The baby is moving around all over the place these days. A lot more frequent too. It's really cool. Allan and I have been trying real hard to see if he can feel the baby moving on the outside, but so far no luck. No biggie.... I'm sure the time will come. ;-)

Nursery Pics!!

So what do you think?! I just need a changing table and side table next to the chair and I'll be set for furniture!! I will be adding more wall decor, but until we find out the sex, this is it for now.

15 Weeks!!

I am so excited that we hit 15 weeks! Only 2 more weeks until the big u/s! I am very antsy to find out if it's a boy or girl. I honestly think it's a girl. :-) I've been playing around with the nursery, but haven't settled on a layout yet. I'll be sure to post pics once it's all set up.

14 Weeks!

Yay for hitting 14 weeks! I feel wonderful! Baby is moving around more these days. I won't be putting belly pictures in my posts anymore, but you can see weekly updated ones off to the right. :-) I am so excited that only 3 weeks from now we get to find out if this is a boy or girl. I'm thinking pink! :-P

We haven't completely unpacked yet, which is to say we haven't unpacked most of the boxes. *hehe* Today however, I plan to finish both the kid's rooms. I definitely need to get the school house set up before Monday, so that may not get done until tomorrow. We'll have to see how helpful the children are. ;-) I will be putting before and after pictures up when it's completed.

Welcome to 13 Weeks AND the 2nd Trimester!!

YAY for 13w and 2nd tri!!! I am so grateful to have made it this far! This past week I have been feeling great. Occasional headaches, but it seems that caffeine keeps them away. Tough decision huh? Migraines or caffeine..... which would you take? The baby's movements have gotten stronger and more frequent. There also seems to be a pattern. Mid-morning about 10-11am and in the evenings between 6-8pm seem to be the most active times. It's pretty cool!

Tomorrow is moving day and I am so excited! I can't wait to get the nursery set up. We bought the crib yesterday. Too big of a deal on Craigs List to pass up. I'll post pictures after we get settled in this week. Allan has been FANTASTIC and doing just about all the packing....and not a single complaint. :-) Isn't he such a great hubby? Pray for him this weekend as all this packing and moving will catch up to him. Poor guy.

12 Week Appointment

Everything went great!! I am down 2 more lbs. No complaining from me for that! The baby's head was right behind my pelvic bone lying vertical face up. According to the head, I'd say he/she is taking after daddy. LOL He/she measured a day ahead. It was a bit difficult to get a good shot because of the position, so no u/s pic this time. The heart was beating away. It was very nice to see. Allan was there too, so that was a bonus! Next appt is scheduled for Dec 1st at 16w. Hopefully we'll be able to get a good u/s pic next time!! :-)

12 Weeks!

Welcome to 12 weeks! Only one more week to the 2nd trimester! I am feeling great. I haven't had a headache/migraine in 3 days!! Some rather exciting news..... I felt the baby moving around ever since Thursday!!!! It seems to happen the most in the mid-morning and evenings, but only lasting about 5min and in the same place every time. I can only seem to feel it when I'm sitting up. It's nice though because it's like clockwork. Maybe that's the baby's awake schedule, I don't know. Monday is my 12w appointment. I'll be sure to post an ultrasound picture when I return home. :-)

This morning I went to see a free private viewing of Fireproof with Kirk Cameron. It's definitely not a movie for emotional pregnant women to go see! :-P It was however, a fantastic movie that I recommend everyone go see.

Afterward, I went to our new house (we're moving on Sat the 8th for those who don't know) with my father and painted the master bedroom. The only room that needed to be painted. I love the color! I'll be sure to post some pictures after we get settled in. Here's a picture of the house. I honestly don't think these pictures give any justice to how pretty the house is. The neighborhood is BEAUTIFUL and neighbors friendly. I am so excited about the move. I am most excited about getting the nursery set up!! I am definitely going to wait until the gender scan on Dec 6th before purchasing any furniture. We did however buy the crib bedding set last week and I absolutely LOVE it! I got such a HUGE deal on it. It's a 13pcs set.
