Maternity Pictures

I decided I wanted some maternity pictures last minute, so my brother was nice enough to take some for us! I think this was when I was 32 weeks along. 

Finding Out

This is a horrible job of me playing catch up. Oh well. 
We found out we were having a girl when i was 15 weeks pregnant. A lot of my friends tell me they don't find out until much later, but my doctor will just tell you as soon as they can seen. The upside to having a higher risk pregnancy and having to go in every two weeks my entire pregnancy, was that they had plenty of opportunities to see if they could tell the gender! So this appointment was right before work early morning, as usual,  and Jeff couldn't be there since he works all the way across town. I think he went to one appointment my whole pregnancy. The tech said she knew what it was, so I had her write it down and put it in an envelope so Jeff and I could open it up and be surprised together. So I had the envelope sitting in my car my entire 10 hour shift at work and I then went straight to a Christmas dinner with the girls I work with right after, so I didn't get home until 9pm, so I was dying to know what we were having! It was so fun to be in our living room, just me and Jeff, and open it up together. I was pretty sure we were having a boy, but to our surprise it was a girl!! We were thrilled.

I'm baaack!

I know you have probably thought (or you haven't because no one reads this) that I have given up on the ole' blog. But I have not! I am determined to catch myself up, because this is our journal. Well, to say the least, A LOT has happened since I last posted, and I am hoping to slowly update to now. So I will just begin with posting some pregnancy pictures that we took.

That last one was in that hospital bathroom that I never want to see again! :) Can you tell I hated being there?

24 weeks.

How far along are you?: 24 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain: 13 lbs.  It's just so weird to me, because I've never gained weight at this pace!
Maternity clothes? Yes, and its soo much more comfortable. Why didn't I do this sooner?!
Sleep: Still great! Have to just sleep with more than one pillow now.
Best moment this week: Spending our anniversary together with Jeff! It's been a fun 3 years. And seems to be the year of threes from for us!
Miss anything? I currently miss going to theme parks (I would've forced Jeff to take me to Knott's for our anniversary if I could've gone!)
Movement: She's not as active as she was before; I think she's just becoming more lazy like her mom :)  I felt her for the first time at about 18 weeks and Jeff felt her kick for the first time at about 19 weeks.
Food cravings: I still haven't had any cravings, really. On Valentine's day all I wanted was a burger and donuts, so we went to Red Robin and Krispy Kreme :) That's about the extent of it.
Anything make you queasy or sick?  Still brushing my teeth, but it's getting better.
Gender:  Still a girl
Labor signs: I started getting what I think might be Braxton Hicks? I'm not really sure, but they came in 15 min intervals over the weekend and made me nervous! I'm sure it's all fine though. I just didn't think people usually get them this early.
Symptoms: Just tired usually.
Belly button in or out:  It's half and half. I think it's going to pop soon :/
Wedding ring: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Still happy usually! That might change though the bigger and more uncomfortable I get.

It's gone by really fast! We haven't bought a single item (not even a cute little outfit!) or done anything to the nursery, and we just started realizing we need to do that. So the next few weekends we're going to get to different projects we need to do.

17 weeks.

So I'm 17 weeks and considering how early we found out and how this pregnancy has been a long time coming, I feel like it's actually gone by fast so far! 

Yeah, I know I'm big! Everyone was like "Oh you're so tall, you won't start showing til at least 20 weeks. Most girls don't with their first one. Um, nope! 

I have not been keeping track of every minute like most girls do with their first. I think it's probably because I've been so sick and working full-time that I just haven't had the energy to do anything cute starting from the beginning and documenting everything little thing. Now I wish I had! 

I saw this on someone's blog and thought it's the closest thing I can easily do to remember different parts of my pregnancy...

How far along are you? 17 weeks 1 day
Total weight gain: 4 lbs  (I know, it doesn't seem right! but I was at the dr's a few days ago and that's what it said). My appetite is in full swing now and I can eat seriously so much, so cheers to probably gaining a 100 lbs by the end! I'm scared...
Maternity clothes?: I'm having a hard time dressing myself! None of my tops are fitting right. I think it's because of my long torso and tops were shorter as it is, so forget about it with this belly I'm already growing! I just ordered a couple maternity tops online. Boo. I was hoping I could hold out longer. 
Stretch marks: Not yet
Sleep: Heavenly! Jeff leaves before me and always texts me later in the morning and says how "dead" I was before he left. 
Best moment this week: Seeing our baby girl on Friday, and watching the Bachelor premier last night! 
Miss anything? I miss getting different facial treatments that I can't do anymore! BUT my skin has actually gotten really clear since I've been pregnant! Loving that part of it. 
Movement:  None yet. I thought I felt flutters, but I don't think so. 
Food cravings: I can eat pizza all day everyday. Even when I was super sick, pizza was the only thing that didn't send me running to the bathroom. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Brushing my teeth! I need to find a different flavor to see if that helps
Gender: a little lady :)  Jeff couldn't make it to the dr appt that day (I was 15 weeks and we also didn't know if we were going to be able to find out that day), so I had the tech write it in an envelope and I went straight to work and worked all day and then had a work dinner that night so I didn't get home til 9:30pm for us to open it! We were dying to know all day! I'm nervous about having a girl because I'm not really that girly, but we are so excited! 
Labor signs: none
Symptons: Still get sick in the mornings, usually exhausted (I seriously haven't cooked dinner in like 4 months. Sorry Jeffy) 
Belly button in our out?: In
Wedding rings on or off?: on
Happy or moody most of the time?: I would say happy. I rarely get moody. Always been pretty even-tempered my whole life and this pregnancy hasn't really changed me much in that way! Although I get grumpy when I'm hungry (but if you ask Jeff, it's been that way our whole marriage :)
