Baby, Baby!

By on February 26, 2011

I can’t believe tomorrow I will be 18 weeks along. I am so excited to meet Ace. Ever since finding out we are having a boy it has seemed more real that we are going to have a baby. I think because I haven’t had insane pregnancy symptoms and haven’t really felt the baby move (which is slightly worrying me) this was the first thing to really say, we are have a baby and his name is Adonis or Ace for short. Branden is so excited and I just can’t help but think of all the cute things he will do with him. He is such a good man, he is hard working, comes home and will clean if I am feeling to crappy to do anything, make dinner, yard work, all these things and doesn’t complain. He is awesome. I got very lucky in the husband department. When I hear about women who have these husbands that just don’t respect them or they can’t talk to I really count my blessings. I hope we never turn into one of those couples that hates each other or loses what we had because we have children and so much going on. That is probably one of my biggest fears. I hate when that happens to people.
Oh another note, now that we have announced we are having a baby boy, I can finally post his bedding set I bought when I had a dream he was a boy lol. I know terrible! You aren’t supposed to buy things gender specific till you know but honestly, I just knew with him. I never felt once that this baby was definitely a girl, I always thought this baby is a boy. So here is it! The picture makes it hard to see but it is little alligators on the blue. I wanted something not so baby-ish, since I don’t like really baby looking bedrooms, I want stuff he can grow into. This is from Target’s Banafish collection and the style is Nantucket.

Old Wives Tale game!

Is it tomorrow yet?!

By on February 19, 2011

Tomorrow is the day! The day we find out if we are having a little boy or girl. I can not wait to start calling this baby by name. I am so excited. I am shocked the last week went by so fast and I didn’t really stress or think about Sunday. I just realized yesterday that it was only 2 days away. Tomorrow is going to be so fun. I get to see some of my best girl friends who are coming into town too. It’s so nice to know you are loved by people and can depend on them to be there when something special is going on. I will try to update tomorrow night when I get home!! I also need to do a 17 week post tomorrow, I think I skipped 16 weeks since my weeks were all off and so now I am a new week on Sundays. Our new due date is July 31!

Ultrasound Video!

By on February 13, 2011

Today we got an ultrasound to find out what the baby is. The baby is getting so big and the ultrasound was amazing. Both my parents came as well as my sister and friend Maggie as well as Branden, of course. We didn’t actually find out the gender but the tech who is a friend told Ashley what the baby is. We will find out on the 20th with our family and close friends. My friend Kat will make a cake with pink or blue in the middle so we will see what the gender is that way. I am so unbelievably excited to find out.

So much going on!

By on February 6, 2011

This past week has been busy! I had 3 tests and still have one more next week. Then Saturday I spent at my parents with Bran, Ash and my friend Maggie and we just hung out by the pool which was really nice.

My Mom and I also took my dog Tyson to the vet and found out the lump on his nose is a tumor, so we has cancer. I am so devastated. I don’t want to watch him fade away and he said he only has about 6 to 12 months. So please say a prayer for him that he doesn’t suffer.

Tired, Hungry and stressed!

By on February 2, 2011

I am so busy with school this semester. I am so over it. I have four tests this week! I can’t even handle how much this sucks.
I also am officially hungry all the time. The other day for lunch I had beef stew, a ham sandwich like an hour later and crackers. Yeah, this baby is officially equivalent to a tape worm.
Sleeping also sucks. Usually the nights before I babysit I never sleep well because I stress about getting up at 7 AM. But when I have school I don’t usually get up till 9:30AM so I usually pass out. Well last night I got up twice to pee then once my nipple was on fire. Seriously, WTF is that about? Thankfully I have an awesome group of girls who reassured me this was normal and has happened to them. This is the third time it has happened and it is really frustrating because it really hurts and I can’t go back to sleep. I finally said screw it and took Tylenol. I couldn’t handle it.
On an exciting note our ultrasound was moved up to the 12th so we get to see the baby sooner!! The bad part is my sister will know a full 8 days before the Reveal Party and I am hoping she doesn’t give away the gender before the party. If she does I am going to strangle her. She is such a nut and gets so excited over things that she can hardly keep a secret. She did this with my first car, my 16th surprise birthday party and she has already told me a gift she got us for the baby lol. She has an issue with secrets, obviously.
I think I am going to start showing soon. One I eat like a maniac now and two because my lower stomach is definitely starting to pop out a bit. I laid by my parents pool with my sister on Sunday and she is like you are getting a little pouch. Uhg thanks, Ash. Gotta love her.
