11 weeks!

11 weeks and counting!

I just had my checkup this morning and baby looks great! The heart rate is 178.... so you know what that means..... it must be a GIRL!

 Or at least that's what the old wives tales say, and honestly I found it to be true with my first two.
Mallie's heart rate was in the 170's and Brett's was in the 140's



Here is me and my baby bump...


 Kathy and I love to have fashion shows at work :0)


Ok so I thought I would share some self portraits since I hardly ever take pictures of myself.

I have a little pregnancy glow starting to show I think......

 uhhhh well that could be my camera app enhancing it :0)


And for those that keep up:


How far along: 11 weeks
Baby Size: Fig
Maternity clothes: Yes
Sleep: Let see I have around 3 potty breaks throughout the night, so I take long naps
Anything that makes you queasy or sick: Brett's poo poo diapers & all gum except Juicy Fruit
Best moment of the week: Finding out my new insurance pays 100% Maternity Benefits, free baby? Movement: Nothing yet
Food Cravings: Peaches and fruit in general
Gender: Unknown but I feel like it could be a girl
Symptoms: Sickness usually hits me after dinner
Mood: I cried during a funny show
Looking forward to: Feeling good all day

Keep it real peeps

Tidbits and Kumquats

So I hope everyone has a fun 4th of July!

Here is a recap of my week via iPhone


Yes I have to wear a mask when I file at work... or I could succumb to dust cancer... so I pick mask.


I bought Mallie some new shades from Tarjay no less... And she is adorable I must say :0)

I was debating on this top, but for $78 dollars... I don't think so.
Am I the only one who immediately gravitates towards the non-sale items?
 I seriously always find the most expensive/non-sale/coupon doesn't apply too stuff.

Sooooo frustrating!!


Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has got to be the most ridiculous movie EVER.
Don't you touch my Edward yo! 

Look at that belly!

10 weeks!

It's the size of a Kumquat! What in the heck is a Kumquat?
Where do they come up with this stuff, I mean seriously they couldn't find something
more normal around that size?!? Like I dunno maybe a walnut?
If you are an avid Kumquat eater then kudos to you.

How far along: 10 weeks
Baby Size: Kumquat
Maternity clothes: Yes but some are a little to large still
Sleep: I sleep like a baby
Anything that makes you queasy or sick: Brett's poo poo diapers (Jordan is in charge of those)
Best moment of the week: Remembering that maternity clothes are so comfortable, ahhh :0)
Movement: Maybe a flutter? 
Food Cravings: Sushi & Watermelon
Gender: Unknown
Symptoms: Sickness has eased up, thankfully!
Mood: I cried over chips on Saturday (we didn't have any)
Looking forward to: Finding out what the gender is!
