Happy 10 Weeks!


10 Weeks pregnant today! :)
[10/10/2012-10/16/2012]

I love the way the picture looks. I think I'm going to start taking them there from now on! :) The pumpkin is the PERFECT accent-- lets you know it's FALL!! :)

So, what does the picture say?

Wearing regular pants... with a belly band of course ;)

Still nauseous. Thank God for medicine. This baby lets me know when I haven't taken it! 

Toast with butter is a breakfast MUST. I get super sick in the AM and it's the only thing that calms my tummy!

Addicted to subs, cranberry juice, and Raisin Bran cereal.

33 days until we know what YOU are!

Iron pills are not my friend. I'll discuss that in a second.

Feeling great besides being nauseous part of the time.

Little to no motivation, but we push through it because we need a clean house, clean dishes, and clean clothes!

So, about the iron pills.

I didn't have to take those with Tayler, so I'm curious-- all you Mommas out there that have taken them before, have they messed up your digestive system? I've had theeee WORST stomach aches for like a week.. hard to use the potty... just feel downright miserable. I take two pills a day and I just feel like they are really screwing with my digestive system. Has this happened with any of you? I want to call and talk to them about it, but I feel like he's going to keep telling me to take them because my iron is low. I have been trying to counteract with eating Raisin Bran and other high fiber foods. Did that help anyone else? Just curious. I've never had this struggle before.

Craved some meatball subs this week! Good stuff. It was hilarious. I went to Subway because I want meatballs on their Italian Herbs and Cheese bread. I get all the way there... tell the lady I've had a craving for one of their subs and she says, 'What kind?' and I said 'MEATBALL!' and she says, 'We're out. They had a recall on the sauce.' SERIOUSLY? What are the odds of that happening?? haha! I told her I could not eat there. I get to the point where nothing else sounds good but what I'm desiring, haha! So... Crenos it was ;) It was delicious! Thankful for that :)

We have Tayler's 18 month check-up today, so I'll post some stuff about that in a little bit! I feel like I rarely write about her anymore and I don't like that! :( So, I'll definitely be updating later on about my little munchkin! She's going to be such a good big sister.

I had a dream last night that I was pregnant for a 'boy.' Inside, I don't really care if it's a boy or girl. Honestly, a girl would be easier because I saved EVERYTHING of Tayler's, haha, but I would LOVE to have a little boy and have that mother/son bonding like Tayler and I have. I know it will be different and I'm looking forward to it :) I guess in my heart, I feel like it's a little girl, but that dream felt so real--- I kind of feel like it's a boy now, haha! I'm confused. I don't know if I believe in 'mother's intuition' haha! Although, with Tayler, I thought she was a girl at first... had a dream she was a boy.. changed my mind.. and she was a girl! So, maybe I should just stick with what my instinct was as soon as I saw a positive test ;) A girl!

Alright, now for those weekly questions!

How far along? 10 weeks
Total Weight Gain? None or maybe a pound? Last time I checked I was right around the weight I started with!
Maternity Clothes? Nah! Just a belly band. They say that happens quick with your 2nd one :)
Stretch Marks? As I said last time, I'm not really sure? I had some with Tayler, but I don't see any new ones. I lather my belly in cocoa butter in hopes it will help this time!
Sleep? Good this week so far! :) 
Best Moment of This Week: Seeing double digits! We're only 14 days away from the 2nd trimester :) 
Miss Anything? When I saw Ethan crack open a beer to watch the football game Sunday, I had a twinge of 'Ooo, ice cold beer' but just a twinge! I LOVE being pregnant and I'm enjoying every single bit of it :)
Movement?  Nothing I can feel! I'm sure they are boogeying down there though ;)
Food Cravings? Meatball subs!
Anything Make You Queasy/Sick? Poopy diapers! LOL
Gender: We don't know yet! 
Labor Signs? No way!
Symptoms: Nausea. Peeing constantly. Fatigue. Sore breasts!
Belly Button In or Out? She's an innie!
Weddings Rings On Or Off? On for now! :)
Happy or Moody this week? VERY happy! It's been a wonderful week :)
Looking Forward To: Hearing the heartbeat in a few weeks at our 12 week appointment! :)

Happy 10 Weeks! :) That means only 27-30 weeks until we meet our new bundle of joy! We cannot wait :)

9 Weeks with Bitty Bay!


I know, I'm a little late! I'm just getting on the computer for some 'personal use' as opposed to 'business use' hehe! :) 

I am currently 9 weeks, 4 days pregnant today! Crazy huh? I feel like time is going fast, but then at the same time, I feel like it's dragging as well. Maybe I'm just really excited to get out of the first trimester? I start my 12th week in 17 days. Not much longer!

I've been keeping track of my countdowns as of right now :)

17 days until I'm headed in to the 2nd trimester
35 days until we find out what we are having

Crazy to think it's THAT close!

Here's my 9 weeks belly shot.


My husband wasn't home, so I took this one with my cell phone which is why it's a bit blurry, haha! But oh well-- it's the memories right? :)

I don't feel like I'm looking as 'bloated' now. Finally. 

Also, I got a refill on my nausea medicine. It is the only thing allowing me to eat and hold down foods this time around and it is such a miracle worker. I definitely feel it if I forget to take one! 

I've been trying really hard to eat healthy. I'm trying to make a conscious effort. This week, I ate a lot of oatmeal, whole wheat toast, and Subway! Hey-- when I'm craving something NOT at home, I try and do my best to eat something partially healthy as opposed to completely not healthy, haha! :) I've been hooked on the Sweet Onion Chicken Teryaki subs. Mmmm! Just talking about it makes me want another one ;)

And now for the weekly questions:

How far along? 9 weeks, 4 days.
Total Weight Gain? I weighed myself at home yesterday and it appears I've lost 2 pounds since the doctor's office. 
Maternity Clothes? Nah! Just a belly band. They say that happens quick with your 2nd one :)
Stretch Marks? As I said last time, I'm not really sure? I had some with Tayler, but I don't see any new ones. I lather my belly in cocoa butter in hopes it will help this time!
Sleep? I'm always tired and sleeping good right now! Of course, I don't have a huge belly or anything, so sleep isn't too uncomfortable right now. It was a little rough this week because we all had terrible colds and Tayler ended up in bed with us a few times, but we made it through with some Vicks and a vaporizer!
Best Moment of This Week: Seeing a growing belly. I think I said that last week, but it's a true story. Just lets me know.. when I can't feel the baby... that he/she is still growing!
Miss Anything? Not really! I'm not  that far in to it probably, haha! :)
Movement?  Nothing I can feel! I'm sure they are boogeying down there though ;)
Food Cravings? Subway Sweet Onion Chicken Teryaki Sub and Green Beans with lots of garlic and pepper! 
Anything Make You Queasy/Sick? Certain smells. Like pee.. for some reason.. it just makes me nauseous. Talking about certain things that make me sick. Anything can trigger my nausea in all honesty, haha!
Gender: We don't know yet! 
Labor Signs? No way!
Symptoms: Nausea when I'm not taking my medicine. Peeing constantly through the night.. and EXTREMELY sore boobies! Sorry for the TMI, but youch! 
Belly Button In or Out? She's an innie!
Weddings Rings On Or Off? On for now! :)
Happy or Moody this week? VERY happy! It's been a wonderful week :)
Looking Forward To: Hearing the heartbeat in a few weeks at our 12 week appointment! :)

It's been a wonderful week! I'll be back sometime around Wednesday for our 10 week update, hehe! Finally in the double digits, right? :)

Happy 9 weeks!
