12 Weeks!! :)


12 WEEKS, 12 WEEKS, 12 WEEKS!! 

Now, I'm not sure if you will consider this second trimester or not. Like 3 of my Apps say I'm in the 2nd trimester and 2 others say I'm still in the first trimester. Either way, we are at 12 weeks pregnant!!


We decided to do a FALL theme with this picture! :) If you can't read everything, have no fear. I'll type it right here :)

12 Weeks [10.24.2012-10.30.2012]

Craved Donato's Italian Dressing this week. Yum! 

Still nauseous. Thought this had passed, but I was wrong LOL

No maternity clothes, but still loving the belly band.

You're popping out there this week.

17 days until we know WHO you are. Are you my little Parker or my little Sawyer?

There you have it!

But I have to tell you. I craved Donato's Italian Dressing alllll up until last night. It was a mistake to get jalapenos, mild peppers, onions, and olives on the same salad. I know. Is that just giving you heartburn reading about it?? ME TOO. And it made me SO sick. I don't think I'll ever touch the stuff again. UGH. haha! It was so good for awhile :)

Thought I'd post another picture real quick too!


It was 80 degrees today here in Ohio, so I wore my sun dress :) Cute wittle bump, right? I'm still in shock how quickly I showed with this one. Tayler... good Lord.. it was awhile, haha! But this bump is apparent :)

Lets see. What to say about week 12?

Still tired, but finding motivation to get things done which is good! 

Still lathering my body in cocoa butter. Hoping it REALLY helps this time around.

I'm getting extremely anxious to know the sex of the baby. I picked out a few 'nursery ideas' that I thought I'd share really quick too!


We love the above for a boy. I love the deep blues and greens and the brown. I think it will be perfect for Parker's room :)


And we love the above for a little girl (except for we'd do pink accents as opposed to blue.) I love the tree theme for either room. I think our little Sawyer would just love this ;)

Now--- I'm just ready to know!! :) 2 weeks from Sunday! 2 weeks from Sunday! Too exciting :) 2 more blog posts and we will finally know! I cannot wait :)

Our baby is the size of a peach this week. About 3 inches and I think it said like .7 ounces. He/she is a growing, that's for sure :) 

Okay. Now for the weekly questions. Are you getting tired of these?? haha! There should be some variety coming with time. Trust me!

How far along?  12 weeks, 1 day
Total Weight Gain?  I'm going to say maybe 2-3 pounds? I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow so I will know more!
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?  Pretty decent!
Best Moment of This Week: Seeing 12 weeks and we get to hear the baby's heartbeat tomorrow... FINALLY! :) We've seen it 2x on the ultrasound, but I cannot wait to actually hear it!
Miss Anything? Hmm! Not really :) Still really enjoying the fact that I'm actually pregnant! :)
Movement?  Nothing I can feel! I'm sure they are boogeying down there though ;)
Food Cravings? Wendys. I crave Wendys 24/7. It's ridiculous. 
Anything Make You Queasy/Sick? The smell of pee-pee in the morning. Odd huh?
Gender:  17 days we will know!
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? Somewhat moody, but happy!
Looking Forward To: Hearing the heartbeat tomorrow at our 12-week appointment!

Speaking of which.

It was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but they cancelled due to my doctor having to run to an emergency delivery. I'm glad they did reschedule though because we found a bite on Tayler! :( It had 2 red lines stemming from it, so we called her doctor and he said he wanted to see her immediately. He said he didn't think it was infected, but we got medicine for it and he told us to give her some tylenol if it seemed to be bothering her. I was relieved it wasn't anything serious! But today she woke up in a much happier mood and seems to be feeling much better from it! Thank God!!! :) So now we have our baby doctor appointment for tomorrow! YAY :)

Happy 12 Weeks!! On to 13!

11 Weeks

11 Weeks! Well, I'm a little late, but I am technically still 11 weeks pregnant, haha! Hard to believe huh?? I feel like we just announced the big news and we're getting ready to say, 'Happy 3 Months' to Bitty Bay #2!


As of right now, we only have 198 days til our due date! :) We're in the 100's.... holla, haha! 

It's been a pretty easy going week. Nausea comes and goes still. I thought I was feeling better.. turns out the little booger was just tricking me ;) I started out this pregnancy hating lettuce.... this week, I want salads. Donato's salads to be more specific. Their dressing is to DIE for. Okay, I probably really wouldn't die for it, but you know what I mean ;)

I thought I'd share a bare belly shot this week too!


That was taken earlier this morning. Starting to pop out there, huh?? So exciting! I LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing a growing belly. Especially since we haven't had an appointment to HEAR the heartbeat yet! I can't wait! :) We've seen it, but yet to hear that pitter-patter. I'm super excited :) We get to hear it Wednesday at our appointment! YAY :) 

My iron pills are agreeing with my body a little more. You all remember me asking that question a few weeks ago... well, I powered through it and kept taking them and I'm actually handling it a lot better. Those first few weeks were rough though! Almost through my first bottle of Prenatal vitamins. Pretty cool :)

We decided on the names this week too... FINALLY. We've been discussing them since we found out and we couldn't agree on anything haha! We went back and forth on so many, but we decided to stick with the ones we originally fell in love with. I got some good advice that told me not to overthink it.. which I thought I was! 

We decided on:

Parker Keith for a boy. (Ethan loves the name 'Keith' and it's my Dad's middle name. It fits perfectly!)
Sawyer Kellylynn for a girl. (Kelly is my mom's middle name, Lynn is Ethan's moms. We combined them instead of hyphenating. Just our preference! :)) 

So there you have it! We'll know November 11th which one we're going to start buying for ;) 19 days! WHOOHOOO! Seems so close, but so far away, haha! 

Also, on a side note. My little love bug Tayler had her 18 month check up last week. The little booger is 26lbs 1oz and 34" tall. She's really starting to thin out. He said she's ornery... we knew this, haha! But he said she's healthy and seems very happy! :) We love her more than she could ever possibly know, but I sure hope that's why she is so happy-- because she feels it from us! :)We also decided on her 2nd birthday theme. It's going to be LITTLE EINSTEINS. That's her 2nd favorite to 'Yo Gabba Gabba' and since we did 'Yo Gabba Gabba' for her 1st birthday, we thought we'd do Little Einsteins for her 2nd :) I know, it's a little early considering her birthday isn't until the end of March, but this Momma will be almost 36 weeks pregnant when she turns '1' and needless to say, probably huge, so I'm getting as much stuff done now as I can! :) One step ahead. 

Now, I thought I'd answer some questions to kind of fill you in on this week:

How far along? 11 weeks 5 days.
Total Weight Gain? As far as I can tell using our scale, NONE. We'll see at the doctor's office. I swear their scale adds 10 pounds to you, haha!
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! :)  Just having nightmares. I had them with Tayler too. Not like monster, evil dreams. Just scary. Ethan cheating on me, etc.
Best Moment of This Week: Seeing 11 weeks... almost out of our first trimester :)
Miss Anything? Hmm! Not really :) Still really enjoying the fact that I'm actually pregnant! :)
Movement?  Nothing I can feel! I'm sure they are boogeying down there though ;)
Food Cravings? Salads from Donatos!
Anything Make You Queasy/Sick? The smell of pee. Our kitchen for some reason makes me nauseous. It's really weird. 
Gender: We don't know yet! 19 days!
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 2 days at our 12-week appointment!

Happy 11 weeks.. on to 12!
