Ryan turns 4

So belated.... bad Auntie.

Love this boy so much....

14 Weeks

We've arrived at the 2nd trimester, y'all! I think I popped this week. I should also add that I don't always look like hell, I just take these pictures at night when Mark is at home, and that's after I've worked with kids all day long. : ) 

Here we are at 14 weeks. I'm not standing up straight, belly bloated! Looking good, mama!

Mostly, I just feel chubby. Still in my regular jeans, I just sort of feel like I have a gut now. It's kind of like baby E is pushing everything upwards and it's now spilling over my waistband. : )

Things of note:
-My neighbor rubbed my belly the other day. It was really sweet, but I hate it when people touch my stomach. She's lucky that she's old and I love her. I've even brushed off my mom, Holly, and Marks mom from belly rubbing. It's probably not normal, but it gives me the willies!

-I'm peeing all the time. The weird part is, it's just a little at a time. I think baby E must be sitting on my bladder or something!

-People have started asking me really personal questions. Like, will I be breast feeding? or Am I constipated? And "Are you going to circumcise if it's a boy? Whoa. Serious personal questions, folks.

-Still really tired. Slept 12 hours last night and it felt so good, because sleeping has become an issue. My hips sort of hurt, and when I wake up anywhere besides my left side, I roll back to the left and it takes forever to sleep again because I AM NOT A LEFT SIDE SLEEPER.

-I have moved from salad cravings to sandwich cravings. Sandwiches are SO darn good. Turkey and provolone. Ahhhhh....

-I can't say I have any real aversions to food. I still like everything I did before and I still don't eat things I didn't before. I miss sushi, but I will survive. I also miss my glass of wine to chill out on the weekends, but I will survive that as well. I've been an excellent designated driver.

-Mark has been amazing. I had another little hormone related melt down a week or so ago and he just let me cry and cry it out. He's also been a trooper here at home, cooking dinner and what not. I love him... : )

OK, Well that's all I can think of for now... Hope everyone is well!

12 Weeks

Well, today we hit the 12 week mark! Pretty exciting stuff. Friday we head back to the doctor. : ) Mark took another picture today. I'm still in pre-pregnancy clothes, but my bras and underwear feel like they are cutting my circulation off. Ideas and suggestions welcome on what to do- that will last the longest. : )

Since I posted last, I have felt so extremely sleepy again that I have gone back to napping at least once a day. I'm looking forward to the little burst of energy that is supposed to come along with the second trimester. Still no puking, I will consider myself BLESSED!! Although I have been rather nauseated at night still, I found a wonderful helper in that arena. Edy's Fruit Pops. Pineapple and Mango. Go get one now. They are literal lifesavers.

In other food news, I have eaten salads for breakfast lunch and dinner. They are so tasty right now!

Mark and I have started thinking about names and such, though I don't plan on revealing that for some time yet. I can say that if we have a boy, that we will continue his family tradition and use the middle name Anderson- it goes back MANY generations, it's not weird but also not something you hear all the time. So, I love it. : ) The other thing I can say about names is that we really like old fashioned ones more than fruits or numbers. ;0)

I for sure look different than I did two weeks ago, but I can't really tell how...this may be denial. Anyway, I am also thinking I should try wearing the same shirt each time, that would help. : )

Send up prayers for the little dove this week. Mama wants a good report on Friday!

10 Weeks

Is that too early to start taking belly pictures? I'm not sure. I don't know if I have an actual belly yet or not, either. Well, anymore than I had before, anyway.

Right. Just shut up and post the damn picture..

3 more weeks and we are outta the first trimester!

Today we hit 11 weeks, so I think my posts are officially caught up. : )

First doctors appointment (post 7)

Well, we had our first doctor's appointment today. That ultrasound is something else, let me tell you. I'm 8 weeks, so I didn't get the belly ultrasound if you know what I'm saying. Odd. The thing is I barely noticed it after I heard that heartbeat.... ba-bum-ba-bum-ba-bum-ba-bum. It was fast and loud. Seemed strong to me. It was the craziest thing I have ever seen or done in my whole life. I totally get why people say it's unexplainable now. It is unexplainable. You'll see. Believe me, I know how frustrating that is, but it's totally true. : ) Here is a picture of our little dove. This is zoomed in super close. I love my OB.

Mark and I were really amazed watching the ultrasound. He was speechless with a big grin. (I did hazard a glance in his direction, too.) My reaction was to shout out "Oh My God!" That's a direct quote, people.

Due date: Christmas Eve/Christmas Day. One angle measures 8 weeks and 2 days, the other angle measures 8 weeks and 3 days. Whatever. Holiday baby here we come!

This is how we plan to announce on Facebook and email:

I totally made this. It's freaking adorable, if I do say so myself. : ) We're trying to let all the people we are close to know now.
