14 weeks

How far along? 14 weeks 5 days

Baby's size? a lemon

Weight Gain? None so far I am actually down 1 lb from pre-pregnancy weight

Maternity clothes? I don't foresee needing this for quite a while as I am still fitting into my XS regular clothes with no problems

Stretch marks? not a single one :)

Belly button in or out? Very much in

Sleep? Oh how I love sleep!! I can literally sleep 15-17 hours on some days if I want to, usually I'll wake up for about 30 min to an hour in there to get something to eat

Foods I am loving? Pasta, Papa Johns Pizza, Mac and Cheese, sprite, ramen, Coke with cherry from Sonic

Foods I am hating? Not a fan of eggs or red meat and definitely no onions 

Best moment this week? getting to see family at thanksgiving

Movement? none yet

Symptoms?  If I don't eat for long periods of time I feel very sick, but the waves of nausea have greatly subsided and I have some energy but still get tired very easily...the acne is the worst symptom of all though I would take all the morning sickness and exhaustion in the world over this 16 year old boy type acne... its just awful

Gender? dont know yet...really really hoping for a girl but would be thrilled with a boy too

What I miss? the occasional glass of beer or wine

What I'm looking forward to? finding out what this little human is... we have 37 more days

Weekly Wisdom: nada

Milestone: not needing to take a Zofran every day

Emotions: I worry a lot, but due to my job and the crazy stuff I see on a daily basis I don't think that will ever go away until this baby is born and is at home and healthy

I will start putting up pics with the 15 week post, I was going to put one with this post but my battery is dead on the camera and to be quite honest it doesn't even look like I'm pregnant, just looks like I ate a big meal or haven't taken a poo in several days LOL just sayin', I mean really if it weren't for the doppler and the few ultrasounds I've had I would wonder if something is really growing in there!

Its really a baby in there!

We had our second appointment today, It was an exciting one because at the last appointment the baby looked more like a blob on the ultrasound than anything else and I knew today it would look like a real baby!

We had the ultrasound first and the lil thing was so cute! It was kicking its legs so it would bounce off the side of uterus it was neat to see it moving in there.

Everything went perfect at the appointment and I am 12 weeks tomorrow, which I am thrilled about since that means one more week of the first trimester and hopefully some relief from the yucky feeling and non-appetite I have been having, although I truly cannot complain because things have honestly been pretty easy this first trimester.

Spillin the beans

sorry I have been a bit MIA lately I have been hibernating...thats what I call it at least.  I literally have been sleeping like 16 hours on my days off...really unproductive, but I am taking advantage of my uninterrupted sleep time as I know soon it will be a thing of the past.

Telling Hubby 
So I really found out on Sept 15, 2010 a Thursday, I went to work as usual and it was so hard not texting Mark or something. This particular week was a bad one for our schedules as I was going to go 4 days without seeing him, So at work on Thursday I asked my manager if He could possibly take me off the schedule on Friday since our census was low and it was an overtime day for me anyways, I was so tired, and I really wanted to tell Mark the big news!! He was able to take me off the schedule so I surprised Mark later that I was off work that night.  

So I went out and bought a daddy to be book and I found a magazine called “I’m Pregnant” So I tied up with a ribbon the two books and the positive test.  
(sorry I couldn't get it to

He got home and I gave him a hug as usual especially since I had not seen him in 3 days and told him I had got him something.  We came into the bedroom and I gave him his gift…He looked at it a second and was all “what is this?” He tossed the ribbon and HPT (Home pregnancy tests) to the side and was looking at the book and I was like “UMMMM Hello!! what do you think this is?!?” and I put the test that said “pregnant” in front of his face and it took a second and he goes “Oh your joking!! NO way!!” I was like nope you can’t lie on that test its real!! Several minutes of disbelief and happiness ensued and then he says, “I thought you got me a book about how to increase your sperm count or something” Um no most certainly  not! He was so excited and I think He was ina bit of shock for a few minutes, but it was so cute to see him so excited about it!
It was such a sweet moment and one I had looked foreword to for so long

Telling The Parents
We had decided we would wait to tell the parents until after our first appointment for a few reasons.  We wanted to have an ultrasound picture, we wanted to make sure everything was going ok in there, and I really wanted to wait to tell my family in person and it just so happened that the weekend we could get to San Antonio was the weekend after our first appointment.

The week before, we had gone to Chicago for a me and hubby vacation just because.  A friend at work had given me the idea to take a picture of ourselves holding a sign that says "Were Pregnant".  So thats what we did.  When We got home from Chicago I busted my but to finish a scrapbook of all our pictures from the trip with that being the last one followed by a picture of the Ultrasound.  It was a lot of work, but so worth it.

We got to San Antonio around 730 that thursday night and the parents were getting dinner ready and whatever.  As soon as we walked in the door I was like ok I want y'all to see our pictures from the trip and they couldn't figure out why the rush but agreed anyways, I guess they thought I was just excited about our trip.  They were flipping through the pages and probably only half paying attention as my dad was totally already ranting about politics (good job Mark getting him going!) My mom came to the page and glanced at it and did a double take to read our signs...She started to cry and was trying to get my dads attention who then finally realized what the deal was!! It was a really sweet moment and Im glad I got to tell them in person!

I told my other dad and my brother the same way but at dinner the next night and they were both over the moon excited as well!!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
