So I've been slacking on my updates lately!  I'm not sure if anyone out there in internet-land is even reading but I promise I'll try to be better! ;)

School is OUT for the kids- tomorrow is my last day of work!  Yay!  Then I'm spending the next couple days getting ready for the beach!  On Friday we are leaving and heading to the sand and sun of the Outer Banks with my husband's whole family. :)  Looking forward to an awesome vacation.

I'm 15 weeks and 2 days today!  Ever since I hit the second trimester I feel like things are going by faster!!!  I'll go ahead and do my pregnancy update then catch you up on pics and videos at the bottom!

How far along: 15 weeks 2 days
Size of Baby: Avocado (
Total Weight Gain: 5lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yep.  Pretty much everything.  I can wear a couple pre-preggo shirts and dresses but that's about it!
Gender: We will be finding out hopefully before June is over!  I originally thought boy, and intelligender said boy BUT lately I've been feeling girl...  I don't know nor do I care whether it's a boy or girl I just want to know!!!
Movement: Felt a few flutters that I THINK are baby this weekend, not 100% convinced yet though ;)
Best thing this week:  I'm loving this phase of pregnancy.  I feel great!
Sleep: Still good!  Not as comfortable on my back though.
What I miss: At this point- NOTHING!
Cravings: Cantaloupe, melons in general, strawberries, Chinese food, and pizza  (odd assortment lol)
Symptoms: Dizziness when I stand up from sitting/laying down, some hip/butt bone pain when on my feel all day, some round ligament pain
What I’m looking forward to: Beach trip (not pregnancy related lol), scheduling our first ultrasound and finding out if it's a boy or girl!!!

Catching you up on the pics...


And here are the vlogs, and also our intelligender test results, baby buys, and belly progression!

Happy Mother's Day!

My mom and I shortly after I was brought home from the hospital
Brew & me on our wedding day, along with my mom & my mother-in-law.

I am so blessed to have an awesome mom and an equally awesome mom-in-law! :) 

Today is also my "unofficial" first Mother's Day.  I'm 13 weeks exactly today! :)

12 weeks- Last week of the 1st trimester!

Size of Baby: Peach (3in long)
Total Weight Gain: 2lbs
Maternity Clothes: All pants, some shirts.  Def. have a baby bump now!
Gender: Too soon to know!  Taking the intelligender this weekend so I'm excited to see what it "thinks"...
Movement: None yet.  Have heard that heartbeat though!
Best thing this week:  Feeling great- getting energy back.  I'm starting to show and actually liking it ;)  Brew told me I really look pregnant now (as opposed to just like I have a gut lol).
Sleep: Sleeping great-- and not having to get up as much to go pee!
What I miss: Not the first trimester stuff that's for sure!  I'm looking forward to this second trimester & feeling great
Cravings: Nothing specific this week-- just sweet stuff still, and I craved Olive Garden the other day...

What I’m looking forward to: My Drs appointment next Monday (the 14th), and being *officially* in the 2nd trimester.

I'm uploading a baby buys video as we speak so I will embed it in a new post when I can! :)

Happy Birthday, hubby & 11 Weeks update

Hey everyone!!!  Well today is hubby's birthday (25th!).  Of course, he's working late today so we aren't doing much celebrating.  This weekend though we are having cake & ice cream with his parents and because he's seriously the hardest person to shop for, I did what he wanted this time, and we are going shopping for him to pick out a gift he wants.  (So not fun if you ask me but he's happy!)  Anyway, will take some pics from this weekend!

As for our little peanut, he/she is now past the 11 week mark!

How far along: 11 weeks 2 days
Size of Baby: Large Plum (2.5in, 0.5oz)
Total Weight Gain: 1lb
Maternity Clothes: All pants, some shirts
Gender: Too soon to know!  I won an intelligender test on youtube though so hopefully we can take that soon to see what it says...
Movement: None yet.  Have heard that heartbeat though!
Best thing this week:  Week 11 was the first week I felt like it actually went fast. 
Sleep: Sleeping good still-- just getting up 2 times or so to pee still.
What I miss: Nothing really.  Honestly I'm happy to be pregnant :)
Cravings: McHappy's doughnuts (if you don't live near me you don't know what you're missing!!!) and cereal (specifically cinnamon Life and Cocoa Krispies)
Symptoms: I've been more moody this past week, that's about it for new stuff.
What I’m looking forward to: SECOND TRIMESTER! (Less than 2 weeks left now!)
