Its official! I just purchased the bedding!

I kind of got stuck on the under the sea theme, and I couldnt find anything else that I liked as much as this one. I love that it is so colorful and good for a boy or girl. I wanted to order it soon so that we could pick out the perfect color for the room (depending on finding out if its a boy or girl) as well as start searching for other little decor things.

While at Target today I picked up an ADORABLE whale piggy bank that was only 70 cents!

And if we are having a girl, I really want to get maybe more mermaid items... like these from Pottery Barn..... or for a boy, various fish stuff.

I have seen this on a few other pregnant lady blogs and I thought what the heck....

How far along? 16 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: last time I was at the doctor I had gained 4 lbs... I am only weighting at the doctor because I dont want to think about it too much... but from what I read, I am supposed to start gaining a pound a week.... Next doctors appointment is next Monday, so we will see.

How much does Baby weigh?: supposeably 3oz

Maternity clothes? I am wearing maternity pants all the time now... some regular shirts still fit.. most maternity shirts look too giant on.

Stretch marks? none... i thought I had one last week and I kind of freaked out... but it was really just a mark from having my book resting on my lap! ha!

Sleep: I am trying to get used to get used to only sleeping on my sides (I am a stomach sleeper)... I wake up in the middle of the night though and my hips hurt... ugg.

Best moment this week: Its not baby related... but seeing my Grandma! I am glad she made it home!

Movement: nothing... but it could be anyday now that I start to feel him/her

Food cravings: chocolate chocolate chip muffins and Jimmy Johns

Gender: I think its a boy! ... but 5 more weeks until we know for sure

Labor Signs: Most definitely not!

Belly Button in or out? Still in.. it has a while...

What I miss: cold beer

What I am looking forward to: Swimming!!! I can't wait to go swimming!! Hopefully within the next few weeks we can!

Here are some pictures like I promised!! ...

12 weeks

14 weeks

15 weeks

I look to be growing exponentially...... but if I were a math problem, I would be a Limit because I will stop when I reach week 40! hehe. I am a bit of a dork huh?

Time is just flying by lately! I can't believe we are near the end of May (Brians bday Tuesday!) and we will be finding out what we are having in 5 weeks!! Crazy huh!?!?!

coming soon...

I haven't updated in a while.... and there is a reason for it...

The kittens have bitten thru the powercord of the laptop and we have been unable to turn it on! Brian is supposed to buy a new cord today... so hopefully I can fight Brian for some computer time and update. I have some pictures to put up... I have definitely been growing! Stay tuned to see!!!

By the way... this is the furniture Brian and I both liked....


Alot seems to be going on lately....

Brian and I adopted two 8 week old kittens last week. I, along with everyone else, thought we were slightly crazy and I worried that we made the right decision... but they are completely adorable, entertaining, and making Brian and I very happy! That is what matters right? Plus, I am sure we are giving them a better life than others could have... we did get to keep a brother and sister together, and we give them lots of love!
Yesterday was Mother's day. We had my family and Brian's family over for a BBQ. It was nice to have everyone together and spend time with our mom's and Brian's grandma. I got two great gifts for my first Mommy-to-be day. My mom gave me a little sign to hang in the baby room that says "Poop Happens" Its cute and funny! And Brian gave me a Quesadilla maker!! It is what I asked for and I can't wait to make dinner tonight with it! yummy!
Today I took the second actuarial exam, FM.... and I passed!! I planned to study for 300 hrs for this exam, but since finding out I was pregnant my studying has been slacking, and I only made it to about 150. I was very confident on about 75% of the material... the other 25% I could skate by on, and I figured it was ok to miss those questions... well the exam was about 50% on that particular topic! I must have been a good guessing because I some how passed!! I am expecting a score of a 6 on this test, but that is A-OK! I never will have to take it again! Now on to the next exam... there is one possible problem though with this exam... there is only 1 testing date... Nov 4th! That is only a week and half before my due date! I am going to try and take it. I know it will be easier to study and take it now than when the baby is here and I will have to wait to take it in May. Hopefully this baby does not come early and I can get the exam in... if not, Oh well... I will still be a happy girl! :)
In more baby news... I am in the 2nd trimester and my 4th month! It is kind of crazy how fast it all is going! The baby will be here before we know! Only 7 more weeks and we will know what we are having!!! I also was thinking the other day... I will need to get all of my xmas shopping done before the baby comes! I doubt I will be able to do any good shopping with a new born to care for! ... or all gifts will be bought online! So those who I need to buy gifts for, let me know what you want!!
This weekend Brian and I are going to Cape for Craig and Beth's wedding! I am super excited! Its always nice to go back to Cape! This will be our first visit while staying in a hotel though! Brian will be staying with the groom Friday night, so I get the hotel room to myself! I can't wait!!! Saturday I plan to wake up early, go to breakfast at My Daddy's Cheesecake, attend Brian's cousin's graduation from Nursing school, attend the wedding, nap, and then watch Brian get drunk at the reception! I can't wait! :)

more pregnancy brain?

I decided to stop by Kohls to see what sort of sales were going on...

I found some super cute maternity jeans on clearnance that 1. fit, and 2. I actually like. I of course had to buy them...

When checking out, I could not find my kohl's card at all! If you dont have it with you, they will let you type in your SSN and still use it... well I could not remember my SSN for the life of me! I knew there was a 4, and a 9, and a 6 ... but I couldnt remember any more!!

I eventually just paid another way... I dont know what came over me! I think this baby is really beginning to suck my brain from me!

Hopefully I dont have any problems like this when I take my actuarial exam Monday!!!! eeks!!

Oh Energy!

I think I am slowly getting my energy back!!

A few weeks ago my bed time was 8:30. No matter how hard I fought it, I always fell asleep!

The past few nights I have been pushing 9:00!!!

Last night I even made it to 9:30!!!! I wasnt even tired when 8:30, 8:45, and 9:00 rolled around!

Today I am feeling much more energized too! I am not constantly yawning and wishing to put my head down.

Yeah for 2nd Trimester!!

According to What to Expect When Your Expecting during the 3rd month...."Continued ups and downs, which may include mood swings, irrability, irrationalbilty, and weepiness"

This is EXACTLY how I have been feeling in the last week!!!!

I feel like I have been continually crying. The slightest reason to be sad sets me off.... I end up bawling with tears streaming down my face. I admit, I have always been a cryer... it feels good to cry sometimes... but this is getting ridiculous.

I have cried multiple times a day for the last few days... if you will be seeing me or talk to me in the next few days be prepared for me to get teary eyed and shed a few tears during normal conversation. I just cannot help it! Its like something just comes over me!

Not only is my crying out of control lately... I also feel like my stress level is at a new high. But I wont go into the many reasons I am stressed out to the max right now.... I want to try and not to think about it all... or I will begin to cry... again.

On a happier note.... today was our second doctors visit. Our appointment was at 11:20... we did not get into the exam room until 11:50 and it was 12:05 before the nurse came in! This made Brian and I both VERY irritable... but once she came in and starting talking about the baby... it was all quickly forgotten. Not to much occured... Basically told me my blood work looked great, my blood pressure is back to 120 over 80, (... I am currently crying and telling Brian to leave me alone.... I am telling you I am moody!) and then we got to listen to the hear beat! It took her a few minutes to find it... which was scary! ... We definitely have an active little one! She said the baby was jumping all over the place and she couldn't keep track of him long enough to get more than 2-3 beats. We got to hear the heart beat once for about 5 seconds before she lost it again... It wasn't long enough for her to count, for sure but she said it was in the 160s. Although I can't feel any movement, we could definitely hear it. Before the nurse even found the heart beat she just started laughing and said "there was a kick!" Every now and then you would hear a big thud. Our little one was having fun! One of the thuds was super loud and it made me crack up laughing! I can't wait till I can feel the kicks!!

Brian and I also made a visit to Babies R Us this weekend. I wanted to look at the cribs and get an idea on the prices... I think I definitely want to go with a white crib and just a changing table/dresser. I can't wait to start on the room! Our plan is to have the room completly cleaned our by mid June so we can begin on painting and decorating by July once we know the gender (June 29th!!!)
