So I've been feeling little swishy movements and a few definite 'that's baby' feelings since week 11. However the last few days alone, I've been feeling lots of distinct baby movements.

Right now, I'm in school, and this child is moving like crazy!

16 Weeks

I'm officially 4 months pregnant! :)

This morning I woke up on my back. And I noticed that there's a little bit of a visible bump when I'm laying down! :)

Also, I noticed that baby was laying on my right side. My little bump was lopsided. HAHA. Plus I was feeling my bump, and it was soft on the left side and hard on the other.

I'm been fighting a migraine for about 2 days now. I think it has to do with the weather constantly changing. I'll post a belly pic later this week. 

This weekend, we have a wedding to go to. Chris's cousin is getting married, so we're going to that Saturday night. SO I'll be getting all dolled up so to speak. LOL!

Hopefully I can get either my mother or my friend to cut my hair this week, before the wedding. It'll look MUCH better, since it's at the annoying length where it looks stringy. :(

Have a good week. I'll post a pic later, and probably a few from the wedding as well.

15 Weeks 3 Days

Sorry this update is late. I've been on spring Break and this is the first time I've touched my computer all week. It's been refreshing that i've been able to sit and do nothing!

So the last week, I've had lots of energy. We finished, aside from gender specifics, our registry for our baby shower. I've had days where I've almost gotten sick, mainly because smells that wouldn't normally get to me ARE getting to me. BIG TIME.

Other than that, I've been craving chocolate, which I normally don't tends to upset my stomach when I do, lol.

That and my hormones have gone wonky. BIG TIME. I almost started crying the other day because the kitchen was trashed...thankfully Chris cleaned most of it up the following afternoon, but still.

Oh..and my dog has been on my nerves. Normally he's an angel. I never have had to watch what I eave within his reach, as he never goes near a plate or otherwise. But for some reason the other day, I was ready to kill him! He took something off a plate I left while I ran to the bathroom. I punished him by making sure he knew why he was going to his room, and locking him in there. Well when i let the stinker out, he did the same thing AGAIN!

And driving is interesting, because people get on my nerves so easily, I think Chris is scared to let me drive at times. LOL!

As for the baby, according to my app on my phone, it's the size on an Avocado this week!! It's getting bigger by the minute. 

I have been feeling some sort of random movements already as well. I can usually tell the difference between gas and baby. It feels different to me. But I've had a few DISTINCT kicks or punches, but so far it just feels like butterflies.

More update next week. :-)

Gender prediction

So I've always heard the wives tale about the baby's heart rate and the gender. 

WELL...Our child has decided to not allow that to be a good method. The HR was in the 170s the first doctors appointment. And the 150s the second. So that's OUT!

Well today, Chris and I went to see his dad and step mom. She decided she was pulling out her pendulum and doing that gender test on me. That one said it was a little girl.

The doctor can't do an ultrasound because of insurance until May 2 to find out the gender. So we have 7 more weeks until we'll know if his step mom was right!

DIY Update

I know I posted one pregnancy related DIY earlier on here, so I thought I would update on that. I really love how that turned out! To the point, that as soon as I can, I'm going to take another pair of jeans and turn them into maternity jeans as well...besides...I've lost enough weight so far that my one pair of jeans that fit pre pregnancy don't fit anymore...They fall right off! My doctor said I was fine though, since I DO love me some food!

But as soon as I can, I also plan to make myself a couple summer dresses, since I can't seem to find any maternity dresses that aren't ridiculously priced.

That being said, as I go about going through things in what will be the nursery, I will post before, during, and after posts, perhaps I'll even get Fiancee involved, and let him have access to my blog for a few days!

I will also post during photos of my next maternity jeans DIY experience. :)

14 Weeks!!! (And a Question)

I have mad it a third of the way!!! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going right now! I feel as if I just put my pee on that stick and seen those 2 lines! WOW!

So..for some odd reason, I have no idea why, but I didn't take a photo last week! (GASP!) 
I will try to take one this week, hopefully I actually do this time, haha.

So I've been getting some of my energy back, not sleeping half the day away...

So my main craving right now is Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream potato chips.

I've wanted them for over 3 days now, and couldn't go get them, but I have school at 9am, so I got here early and found some at the little convenience store the school has! SCORE!!!

But..If I don't post again this week, I will post another little update in a week!

What suggestions do you have? As far as the second trimester goes? Like things I need to do, or even just a heads up for later on in the pregnancy?

13 Weeks Checkup

So I had a doctor's appointment friday. The doctor said everything looked great, and that I was officially in the second trimester, at 13 weeks 3 days. :-)

The baby's heartbeat was 154 this time.

We didn't get to have an ultrasound because the insurance only covers certain things. But we did get to hear the heart!

We will find out what it is on May 4, at our 21 week checkup. :-)

13 Weeks

One more week, and I'm officially in the second trimester!

This week has been a lil rough. It started out fine, but the other night my stomach was so upset that no sooner did I take my vitamins, did they come right back up! And today, I woke up with a sore throat. So prayers that it's just a side effect of my horrible allergies, and that I'm not getting sick!

This week, I have HATED staying at home. It finally warmed up some, then it got so cold, yet again, and we got more snow, yet again. This is getting ridiculous!!

My main craving this week has been Chocolate Milk, which I've been craving since the beginning, and Strawberry-Banana yogurt. it's YUMMY!

I haven't been able to take a belly pic yet this week, but I definitely will when I get home, as I'm currently at school.

Friday is my second Doctor's appointment. I'm hoping we can get to see our little bean again! Also, I'm hoping that at my next one, in four weeks when I'll be 17 weeks, the doctor will have an ultrasound done to see if the baby is playing nice. I wanna know what I'm having!! Plus, I think my sister would like being able to see them do the ultrasound, and she'll be on her spring break that week. So fingers crossed!

Well I will post a pic later on!
