15 weeks!

Stephen's 26th Birthday was on Wednesday and his wonderful boss, my brother in-law, gave him half the day off. So of course, hubby wanted to go to his favorite place in the world, Dardenelle's to go fishing! We got up there about 2:30 and wore a sweatshirt the whole time! The weather was beautiful! He caught 11 fish!! And I caught 2...go us!! I didn't eat for about 5 hours and ended up getting sick at some restaurant in Sonora...first time I ever threw up away from home! Yuck!

But as long as I am eating every 2 hours, I am feeling great!!

I am feeling more and more flutters in my tummy!

Only 1 more week now till we find out the sex of our beautiful baby!!!
I am beginning to think it's a boy because I am always saying "him" or "he" and looking at baby boy clothes..hmmmm.... We will see!!!

We get to keep my sweet nephew Wyatt tomorrow evening..what fun that will be!!!

Cravings:
-Lemon water
-Nachos from Taco Bell(still!!)
-Dr. Pepper..mmm!!

Starting to feel movement...

The last couple of days I've been feeling lots of little flutters and bubbles in my belly...especially when I am laying down! It's soooo amazing! I can't wait for Stephen to actually feel the kicks, I know he wishes he could now!

SO EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Week 14

The nausea still lingers. Somedays are good and some not so good.

My sister in-law Malissa had a little boy on Monday evening, Colton James! It was fun because it was a surprise even though I always thought it was a boy!

Got to visit my good friend Ashlie and meet baby Jackson for the first time on Tuesday afternoon! Beulah and I drove to Sacramento and visited for a while! Jackson is such a doll and Reagan seems to be enjoying being a big sister! :)

Week 13 mama :)




I am so stinkin' happy!!!!!!! :)

2nd Trimester Begins....

Woo hoo!!! I can finally take a deep breath!! Even though, I know I won't fully relax until baby is in my arms all safe & sound but it's definitely wonderful to make it to the 2nd trimester! Thank you Jesus! Yesterday, we got to hear baby's heartbeat and boy oh boy was that a BEAUTIFUL sound. I just loved looking at Stephen and seeing him smile from ear to ear. This was such a wonderful and beautiful thing :) Baby's heart was beating so fast! After throwing up 6 times before NOON yesterday, it was definitely ALL mommy wanted to hear! I am not complaining, I feel blessed to have this miracle growing inside of me! God is so GOOD!

I haven't gained any weight yet! Actually lost a couple pounds which is totally fine cuz I needed to ;)

October 1st can't come fast enough! We have no clue whether it's PORTER STEPHEN or TINLEY ANNE cuz we have heard both, "Oh that's a girl's heartbeat" and "Wow, sounds like a boy to me"! We will see! I just can't wait to find out! It will be such a happy day!!!!! :)

Morning sickness or should I say all day sickness hasn't left me yet and I still haven't gotten my energy back yet but that's okay, I JUST started the 2nd trimester so hopefully in a few weeks to come, I will be feeling GREAT!

CRAVINGS:

*Taco Bell nachos, almost everyday..yikes!!
*DILL pickles..guess the pickles craving is true!
*Crushed ice :)

I have felt some little bubbles in my tummy but who knows if it's the baby or just my tummy! But I'd like to think it's precious baby!

Much Love :)

Fall...get here fast :)





Decorating my house for beautiful fall :) I love this time of year and looking so much forward to it!! I think my pregnancy will start FLYING by because of the holidays! yay!!! I am burning up today so the fall weather will be so nice!!







I think sometimes I am feeling completely better but then, I jinx myself and throw up so I'm just going to say, I am thankful for the feel good times and the nauseaus times because it makes me realize baby is healthy and doing good! :) She/he is so worth it!! I know I still have 6 more months but I am sooooo excited and so ready to meet you!!! Stephen and I were talking last night that after October 1st(when we find out the sex), the decorating the room, the registering for baby shower, the deeeeeep cleaning and organizing will begin and I am so looking forward to it!!! This week, I have been really craving milk...but when I drink it, I feel pretty nasty. I also have been craving anything cheesy, I guess that's good since I don't get my calcium from the milk! And also, APPLES!! yummmmmy!! We just found out a few days ago that my brother Michael and sister in-law Bryana are having ANOTHER girl!! Yippee!!! The girls may be catching up in our family!! That makes 2 girls and 5 boys for my parents! mmmm....I wonder what catagory our sweet pea will fall- adding more to dad's basketball team or growing the CHEERLEADING squad!! ALSO, me & Stephen's friends, Corey & Alyssa are expecting a baby girl as well, in January!! Yes!!! Sadie Grace :) Makes me even more anxious to find out!! Also, my beautiful friend Ashlie's due date for little Jackson "Jax" was yesterday...Pray he comes soon and safe :) Also, got to keep my sweet niece Payslie last night, she is such a joy! I just love her to death!!!


Toodles...decorating time!!!
