Random Pregnancy Thoughts

    Just a few things I've been pondering since I've been with child:

~ The only pants I could manage to find to fit me in Walmart when I started showing were hammer pants. Does that mean pregnant women should be rappers?

~ Can the baby read my thoughts?

~ Why can't your stomach turn blue for a boy or pink for a girl?

~ Why is Cook-out's pink lemonade soooo good?!

~ How many times can I throw-up after brushing my teeth? Apparently 5 times.

~ Why must I crave what I can't have. Like hotdogs and barbecue.

~ How many people does it take to locate a doctor's office? 4 people.

~ Do I need to take an infant massage class?

~ Isn't it weird that's it a good thing when people talk about your belly now.

~ How can Hollywood get away with acting like a woman who just found out she's pregnant and isn't even showing yet, could find out the gender a day later? I don't even know yet!!!

~ My biggest question at the moment. Where do all the pens go?!

It's Fall Y'all!

   Happy fall y'all! In case you couldn't tell by all the pumpkin spice lattes,  twitter and facebook updates, the first official day of fall was yesterday. Although I've been celebrating all September! Because it doesn't last long enough to truly enjoy it all!

  Of course it doesn't feel like fall until you bust out your fall decor. This is actually a new edition from Dollar Tree! Not only is it my favorite thing I've put up this year but it was only a $1.

  I'm starting to get into my fall baking mode. Above is the pumpkin cake I made for church last Sunday. It's a new recipe I found on pinterest. It was pretty easy, not a lot of mixing required, and was super delish! Now what do I make this coming Sunday?

     I love breaking out the fall scented candles. So cozy! This one we received as a wedding present. It has an amazing aroma! But mom and I have found that if you burn a few different scents at once it can make for a wonderful new scent! Definitely something fun to try.

   What I'm loving about fall is that I'm just a little closer to finding out what Baby H is! We should find out if we're having a boy or girl right before Halloween. Which is soon, but not nearly soon enough haha! Here's  how big the baby should be today at 15 weeks. It's getting bigger but still so small! 

    In other pregnancy news I've been experiencing some extremely unpleasant pain in the back of the top of my thigh. I've had it every once in a while for a week or two but yesterday it got so bad that I couldn't bend over, lean forward, move too suddenly, and even had difficulty walking. Fun stuff. I googled it and the two things that came up were Sciatica and Pelvis Girdle Pain. After talking to a doctor friend of mine I think I've ruled out Sciatica, leaving me to believe it's PGP. Some friends have shared a few methods to ease the pain which I'm hoping will help. From what I googled it either will subside once you've delivered or at the worst take 6 years to heal. I plan to talk to my doctor about this. In the meantime I'm praying it away!

    Otherwise I'm doing well, just anxiously awaiting the arrival of Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and of course our baby! Ta-ta for now!

First comes love, then comes marriage...

    Hey y'all! As you might have noticed I haven't blogged since June, but now I'm back. Our summer was great. Lots of family and friends, the occasional day trip here and there, we finally found a car, and one more memorable thing happened......we're expecting!!!

   Although I'm sure most of my readers already knew that. We're beyond thrilled! I'm 13 weeks tomorrow, as of right now our baby's due date is March 17th 2015. I'm a little nervous since I've heard we have a lot of snow headed our way until the end of March. But mostly we're super anxious to meet our first child. At first  I was very sure that it was a boy, but now I'm starting to think it could be a girl. Either way we have a 50/50 chance of being right haha!
  I've been so curious to know what we're having I started looking up ways to predict the gender. I tried the baking powder test with my urine and it foamed like crazy(which means it's a boy). Then I asked mom to take it to see if it was really accurate and it did the same thing. Probably not accurate haha. We should know what Baby H is in about 7 weeks(I hope!).
   My symptoms haven't been what I'd expect them to be. For instance I never had a lot of morning sickness(just a little nausea). I've mostly just been achy, fatigued, and having a lot of headaches and sinus pressure. My cravings have been lemonade, potato salad, and Taco Bell breakfast burritos.
   As for the body changes, they have happened fast! Thankfully the only trouble I've had so far with clothes is pants. I have like 2 pairs of pants that are working right now, but I mostly wear skirts and dresses. I do have some maternity pants I've ordered on the way though. Hopefully they fit right!

 That's our sweet Baby H at 12 weeks! The sonographer said our baby is right on target for it's age. The baby was moving a lot at this appointment, kicking it's legs, waving! Look at those little arms! It's getting more real every day.
  I'll be keeping everyone posted on Baby H's progress( as well as our's) on here. Thanks for reading :)
