15 Weeks

Being pregnant is more than I ever expected or dreamed it would be!  I have been very blessed to have not dealt with any morning sickness, nausea or any of the other symptoms many face in their first trimester.  The only issue I have had thus far is the crazy back pain and the stretching of this growing bump.  But I beyond thrilled to be experiencing God's miracle.

The bump is getting bigger by the day and truthfully I am in shock of how fast I have grown.  Everyone is different and their bodies react differently to pregnancy.  Some grow bigger, some carry low, some carry high, etc...but honestly I was never expecting to show as much as I am at this point already.  However, there is no mistaking that there is a baby in there and there has not really been that in-between stage where you are pregnant and people can't tell.  In fact, people were asking before I was even ready to announce.

The other day my mom and I had a day of shopping and she could tell how uncomfortable I was in my clothing.  She said "I love you honey, but its time to start wearing only maternity clothes."  So we headed to the nearest maternity store and we tried on what felt like a million clothes.  Let me just say that this was no easy task and I couldn't have done it without my amazing mom!  She helped me grab sizes, different shirts and even put on those baby bumps they have in the dressing room to make sure it will fit with the growing belly.  We were both in awe of how these clothes stretch!  I am much more comfortable now in my maternity clothes and can finally breathe! Thanks a million mom for battling the dressing room with me!

Since so many others start a pregnant journal when they are pregnant or turn their blog into one, I have decided that I am just going to blog about it.  Plus it gives everyone a chance to see what's going on.  However, I promise this will not become just a baby blog! :) So without further ado, here we go...

How far along? 15 weeks.  The baby is the size of a naval orange!  (4.5in, 2 to 3oz)
Maternity clothes? It's all I am wearing.  Maternity shorts, shirts and dresses.  I am still able to wear some of my older maxi dresses but have to pray that my boobs don't pop out! lol
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Sleep: Sleeping is hard right now.  We got the pregnancy pillow to help relieve some of the pressure but I am still feeling growing pains and tossing and turning has become harder than I thought.  And thanks to the many bathroom breaks the hubby occasionally wakes up too to make sure I am ok.
Best moment this week:  I could have sworn I felt a flutter, but not 100% sure.
Miss Anything? Wine!  If any pregnant woman says that they don't miss alcohol because they are pregnant are full of it!  Especially at this time of year when patio drinking is the best!
Movement: Just a flutter, I think...
Food cravings: Cherry Tomatoes, Avocados and these amazing homemade fries my hubby makes!
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, been really blessed
Gender: we find out at the beginning of June
Labor Signs: Way too early.
Symptoms: crazy back pain and stretching pains in the belly 
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: I really couldn't be happier!
Looking forward to: oh so much!  Being able to fill the baby, our next appointment on May 10th, finding out the gender...the list goes on and on!

The Bump Is Out!

I was originally planning on telling the story of how we found out we were pregnant, how we told the parents and family and all the fun details that come with it all.  However, lets face it, the bump is out (definitely can't hide it anymore) and I am ready to show it off.  I will go ahead and forewarn you this bump came a lot sooner and larger than I was expecting!

Are you ready for this...and there it is!  I feel like it showed up overnight!

It became really hard to hide after week 10.  Instead of us telling others we were pregnant the bump did it for us!

The belly is still growing (my uterus is already at my belly button) and it's starting to get in the way of my sleep and some of my regular routines like applying my makeup, bending down and putting on my shoes.  The pregnancy pillow is going to be my next purchase!!!  I know, we still have a long ways to go and it's only going to get harder but I wouldn't trade it for the world!  This baby is already loved by so many especially by mommy & daddy!

I promise to share the story of how we found out and how we shared our amazing news (I have video and all)!  Stay tuned for more to come...
