Weeks 13-17

It has been a while since I posted a pregnancy update, so I thought I would play a little catch-up and just do one update for weeks 13-17.  I just entered my 17th week, and time is going by so fast!  The picture above was taken at 15 weeks.  If I wasn't still in my pj's then I would take a current pic, but I seriously doubt you want to see me like this!  Not much has changed really.

I went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and she said everything looked great.  The heart rate was 155.  I'm still losing weight instead of gaining, but she said that was fine.  I'm not getting my hopes up that I won't put on any extra lb's.  I'm sure it will catch up with me at some point!  We find out in two weeks what we are having and I seriously can't wait!  This pregancy is so much different than Addi, so I'm thinking it might be a boy?!?  I secretly hope so :)

How far along?  13-17 Weeks

Baby is the size of...  currently, an apple

Best moment this week?  Feeling lots of little flutters for the first time.

Miss anything?  I still miss being able to sleep through the night.  

Movement?  Definitely feeling some flutters and I love it!

Sleep?  Still sleeping with the Snoogle and getting up once or twice to use the restroom.

Food cravings?  I'm craving salads a lot lately.   

What makes you queasy/sick?  Certain smells make me gag and then the gagging turns into throwing up.  I have gotten sick more these past few weeks than I did the first trimester.  I'm not nauseous, but I just can't help but gag when I smell something nasty. 

Morning sickness?  Nope.

Other symptoms?  I'm just tired all of the time.  We all were in the bed by 8:00 every day last week.  We weren't asleep by then, but it was nice just relaxing and watching tv cuddled up in the bed!

Gender?   We find out March 14th and I can't wait!

Looking forward to...  This isn't baby related, but I'm looking forward to Addi's birthday party Saturday - I know she is going to have so much fun!

It's Been A While

Addi was sent home from daycare yesterday b/c she was having some symptoms of a horrible stomach bug that's making it's way through her class.  Brad even had it this past weekend and it was BAD.  However, since I picked her up yesterday, she hasn't had any more symptoms.  I decided to keep her home today just in case, but so far so good!

We have had a lot going on these past few weeks.  I thought I would show you what we have been up to in pictures.  I haven't gotten my nice camera out in I don't know how long, so iPhone pics will have to do...

We have had SO much rain lately, but there were a few weekends when the weather was perfect for playing outside.  My bff Janna and her hubby just happened to be in town during one of those beautiful weekends, so we had a date at the park and then we went for ice cream.  It's always great hanging out with them and I miss Janna SO much!

A couple of Friday's ago, the weather was just too perfect to be stuck inside at work, so I left early, went to pick up my Addi bug and we headed to the park again.  She had the best time (until it was time to leave of course)  I'm so ready for spring weather and many more play days at the park!

We let our sweet neighbor and new mommy borrow a baby swing we had.  When she returned it, Addi claimed it as her own and this is how I found her one day.  She was rocking her baby :)  Such a good little mommy!

Miss priss is full of personality and this is the look I get most days.  Brad said she is acting just like me when she gives these looks.  Haha, he may be right!

Our little girl turns 3 on Monday.  I still can't comprehend this!  I was going through some old pictures and came across this one.  Addi would always sleep with her little legs up like that and Brad and I would always say she looks like a little froggy.  I think this one was taken when she was 7 days old - It's hard to believe she was ever this small.  

I really am going to try to update this thing more often!
