18 weeks






How far along? 18 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I haven't weighed myself recently.  
Maternity clothes? Starting to wear more maternity clothes, noticing all my stuff is getting too small. Jacob took me shopping and bought me some more maternity outfits that are so comfy! He's the best!  
Stretch Marks? I noticed a few small ones, bought  the Palmer's stuff last week and have been using that. - they are starting to go away!  
Sleep: This week has been the worst so far. Jacob was out of town so I didn't sleep good because of that, but I really just cannot get comfortable. It is either my back, hip, knee. Something hurts in every position. :/  
Best moment this week: Finally seeing a little belly and feeling LOTS of movement.  
Miss anything? Still missing turkey sandwiches.  
Movement: YES! he feels like he is rolling around in there. Have only felt a few small kicks. Jacob really wishes he could feel him move but it's mostly internal for now. 
Food Cravings: This week so far I am craving: Spiced Apple - chicken salad melt sandwich, ruffles and extra pickles. Mmmmm I could eat that every day!
Anything making you queasy or sick? pizza.    
Have you started to show yet? A little. Some people still say I don't look pregnant but some people are starting to really notice. I notice! ha!
Gender Prediction: It's a boy!
Labor signs? No
Belly Button in or out? In  
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: A little of both, mostly happy lately. :)  
Looking forward to: Feeling more and more movement and seeing our little guy again next week!

Total weight gain/loss: I haven't weighed myself recently.
Maternity clothes? I wear a couple of maternity jeans/pants for comfort but they are still way too big! Still rubberbanding my jeans and wearing leggings.
Stretch Marks? i noticed a few small ones, bought  the Palmer's stuff last week and have been using that.
Sleep: I'm still sleeping pretty good, still waking up many times in the night to pee. I have a hard time getting comfortable during the night here lately so I am not sleeping as well as I have been. I have been putting a pillow in between my legs laying on my side and it has helped a little. I have been getting little bursts of energy which is nice, hoping to get more of those. 
Best moment this week: Finally seeing a little belly and feeling some movement!
Miss anything? Still missing turkey sandwiches.
Movement: Still feeling flutters and I swear I felt a small, quick kick this week. It was awesome but too fast. 
Food Cravings: This week so far I am craving: Pickles! and vanilla ice cream sandwiches.

Nursery Inspiration

We want to do his nursery with inspiration from "Where The Wild Things Are" which is Jacob's favorite childhood book.

I don't want to overdo it. I like simple wall colors and simple bedding with small details from the book incorporated in the room. Examples: the adorable crown light fixture, mobile, pillow, artwork and peg dolls. I love the pops of green. I love this rug from anthro too. As soon as I saw it I thought of baby's room.

These are just a few of my inspirations. I can't wait to start on his room. :)


It's A BOY!


 Well, Momma was wrong. We are having a BOY! I could have sworn it was a girl but I am thrilled to be having a boy. Jacob is really excited as well.

We found out last Thursday. We were nervous that we weren't going to be able to keep our original appointment because it had snowed so bad the day before but luckily the roads were pretty clear when it was time to go to the appointment.

As soon as the ultrasound tech rubbed over my belly, I saw it...his little weenie! I told her, "I think I see something", she said "I think I do too, but let's look to make sure." She said there was no denying that he was a boy. At that moment so many emotions were running through me. I turned to look at Jacob and he had the biggest smile on his face. He looked at me and said, "I knew it, I told you." It was so awesome seeing him like that, with so much joy. I was feeling it too. We were having a little boy. It all became so real at that moment.


She then did the 3D ultrasound and we got to see his little face, so amazing! 


I know it is early, but I think he looks so much like Jacob. His little profile is perfect. I can't wait to meet this handsome little face. 

Now that we know we are having a boy. We went to register and do a little shopping this weekend. I thought that it wouldn't be as fun shopping for a boy but I was wrong. There are so many cute clothes. Here is some of what we got. I love it all!
