18 week bump-date

18 weeks and 3 days.
So many exciting things are happening within the next 5 months or if you want to be technical with my dates its 4 months and 31 days...

Our anatomy scan has been scheduled for 20 weeks, nothing really special other than we get to see our sweet baby again, I guess that's special enough ;)

Hubby turns 25 next week!!!
December 2nd marks 7 years we've been together (how has he been able to deal with me that long? Let alone create another possible mini ME) I turn 25 in the same month, baby shower fun has begun. Our marriage anniversary is exactly 1 month until baby arrives (if he/she waits the full 40 weeks) Okay enough fun facts.

How far along? 18 weeks!
Stretch marks? None yet (Thank Goodness)
Best moment this week: Feeling our baby moving around. It's starting to get more consistent. Every evening laying on the couch I try to concentrate to feel those sweet little nudges.
Worst moment this week: Acne (which has been the case for awhile) Getting dizzy and feeling like I'm going to vomit at the most inconvenient times (such as while doing appointments at work)
Miss anything: Wine
Food cravings: Earlier this week it was sloppy joes, right now I really want an Italian sandwich from Fire House Subs.
Anything make you queasy or sick: Not anymore
Have you started to show? Oh yes!
Gender prediction: Still getting a lot of guesses from people and Girl seems to be the winner.
Looking forward to: Hubby's Birthday next week and Thanksgiving dinner!

Nursery update:
The closet is finished and slowly starting to fill up, daddy-to-be installed a ceiling fan over the weekend, and now to get our butts in gear to finish the rocking chair and hopefully get a crib.

Belated 15 week post

15 weeks or if you want to get technical today would make 15 weeks 6 days. Yay for week 16 starting tomorrow when baby will finally hear!!! Those little ears will surely be used to mommy's voice after about 10 minutes. You can bet your bottom dollar I will be one of those pregnant ladies who does a lot of talking to her growing belly ;) and proud of it!

How far along? 15 weeks 6 days
Stretch marks? No
Best moment this week: Testing out my pinterest skills and making a pumpkin t-shirt to show off the bump
Worst moment this week:  Bloat has begun along with heartburn.... forget enjoying a meal anymore now that I feel like my stomach could explode open and the burning sensation in my chest after every meal. Oh the joys of pregnancy!
Miss anything: Friday evening I really missed moscato as we enjoyed dinner at Olive Garden :(
Food cravings: Very random and changing about every 5 minutes. Right now it's chicken wings drenched in Sweet Baby Rays ;)

Anything make you queasy or sick: So far nothing this week, I'm back to being able to eat like a normal person.
Have you started to show yet? Yes!!!

Gender prediction: Girl
Looking forward to: Another sonogram in a few weeks to see our baby's face!

Flash back to the past weeks of chalkboard bump dates. I'm such a slacker when it comes to keeping the blog up to date.

11 weeks

11 weeks down. 28 to go!
I am so happy that I'll be entering the 2nd trimester soon! I probably won't be saying that come trimester #3 ;)

But, I'm VERY excited that I can now finally start these fun weekly updates with food to show baby G growing! Hard to believe that about 2 weeks ago he/she was only the size of a grape!

How far along? 11 weeks
Stretch marks? No
Best moment this week: Can't recall a best moment this week
Worst moment this week:  Being sick with a head cold for 1 week straight and not being able to take anything to get some relief
Miss anything: Still coffee
Food cravings: Nothing

Anything make you queasy or sick: So far nothing this week, I'm back to being able to eat like a normal person.
Have you started to show yet? Still sporting a mini baby bump right now

Gender prediction: Girl
Looking forward to: Our first trimester screening which is next week. The good of it; I'll get to see baby G again, the bad of it; it test for down's :(
