Image and video hosting by TinyPic

*How far along?: 16 Weeks

*Total weight gain: 4 lbs

*How big is baby?: The size of an avacado.

*Sleep?: Still waking up for the restroom, but I'm finally getting comfortable again

*How are you feeling physically?: Feeling really good. I've started getting heartburn the last few days, but other than that I'm feeling back to normal

*How are you feeling emotionally?: This week I had to deal with the idea of how much weight I will end up at. It was a little difficult to swallow, especially since I've NEVER been this heavy to begin with. BUT, bring me a healthy baby and I'll gain whatever I need to!

*Best moment this week?: Hearing the heartbeat at the doctor's office. It sounds a lot different than on my home doppler

*Movement?: Nope.

*Food cravings?: Mexican food!

*Labor signs?: Nope

*What I miss: A glass or three of my Pinot Noir

*What I'm looking forward to: Our anatomy scan!

*Random Thoughts: I wonder what color eye's the bebeh will have?

Pretty good site- you gotta take it as is, but it can be pretty informative! I liked this college article since I went to college and actually did come out with debt (surprise, surprise)

13 1/2 weeks vs. 15 weeks

I will start off stating that all of my pictures so far have been after dinner so I'm not technically this large yet.... it's some food belly too :o) Still, I'm thinking this is pretty big for 15 weeks.... lets just hope this isn't insight for what's to come!!!!

Our walls won't be this color, but these are pretty much the colors I want:

14 Weeks

*How far along?: 14 Weeks

*Total weight gain: Still on strike. The scale and myself are not in agreement currently

*How big is baby?: The size of a lemon.

*Sleep?: I wake up often to use the bathroom or re-situate but otherwise sleeping good

*How are you feeling physically?: Feeling great! Fatigue is slowly easing up :) I think my abdomen is stretching a bit lately since I've had this aching feeling going on

*How are you feeling emotionally?: Feeling pretty dang good! Mr. Papps says my emotions are on red alert though... poor guy

*Best moment this week?: Hearing the heartbeat on my home doppler

*Movement?: Nope.

*Food cravings?: No real cravings, though ice cream has sounded good (not usually an ice cream fan)

*Labor signs?: I hope not :/

*What I miss: Sleeping comfortably

*What I'm looking forward to: Having another day off tomorrow :)

*Random Thoughts: I can't help but wonder how this pregnancy would have made me feel had I not dealt with infertility.

Bought my first real baby item :)

As nervous as I am about buying something more expensive (for me anyway), I am thrilled and cannot wait to get it in the mail!! I bought the diaper bag... LINK I got the charcoal black :)

I first saw someone talking about it on a board, but then I did a lot of my own research and decided that this is hopefully just what I'm looking for :)

Porn boobs

So, someone posted on my bmb about how their breasts are becoming like those of which you would see on pornstars, which got me thinking..... so I looked down at my once 34D boobs and noticed I have a third one growing in there. WTF!!!! When did this happen?

Apparently when I put my bra on in the morning it's ok, but as the boobies shift, the third one sprouts haha Ok so maybe it's not that bad, but it is without a doubt time to go bra shopping! I've heard it gets the worst towards the end, and even more so once the baby is born... I have a feeling I will be shopping in the mid alphabet section for sizes :/

At least the hubs is excited :)

Blood test results are in!!

I'm beyond happy! I know I'm not old, but still older enough to have more concern (per my doctor)- I'm 32.

So my results for Down Syndrome are 1 in 2,941, and Trisomy 18/13 is 1 in >10,000!! I go back 4/24 for another blood screen and regular OB appointment where I guess they will test for more possible defects.

Added bonus for today... I just realized I'm almost out of the 1st Trimester! Holy shit!

I am out at work!!!

So, today I decided to out my pregnancy at work. I had a meeting with my team, and told them I would be taking some time off so the hubs and I can spend time with LO. It was a great feeling. So my plan is to deliver sometime in October, and stay home until after the New Year- hopefully :)

I can't tell you how good it feels to not have this secret! It's funny because a few of the ladies on my team said they had a feeling. I was like "Say wha? How?" lol

****For those of you who I'm FB friends with, I'm not coming clean just yet, so please don't post anything for at least a week or two if you would! I'm not ready to take the plunge all together just yet!****
