Week: 17

Monday, October 31, 2011


How far along? 17 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: gained 2 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Not yet!

Stretch marks? Luckily, no. I am hoping since I didn't get any with the last pregnancy that I won't with this one.

Sleep:
Still great!
Best moment this week: That I found out I am having a BABY GIRL!
Miss Anything? Not that I can think of.

Movement:
Pretty sure I felt her squirming around.
Food cravings: Still mash potatoes, anything home-baked or in other words "real food" ha!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Um sometimes doing dishes, I can smell VERY good. Which is not a good thing.
Have you started to show yet:  My sister came over this weekend and said she could see my belly getting bigger!
Gender: 95% GIRL!!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? My belly button is so odd right now, its like half in half out.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: SO HAPPY! I AM HAVING A BABY GIRL!! :)

Looking forward to: Feeling her move more and having Devan be able to feel her kick!


Also since we found out that we were having a girl, we decided to do a little shopping. I actually sold all of Titan's baby stuff right after he grew out of it so sadly we have to start from scratch on EVERYTHING! But I can't complain too much cause baby shopping is SO much fun! Devan and I went to baby's"r"us this weekend and got a new car seat and swing. We got them both in tan or black so that we can use them for future kids not matter which gender they are. Then we picked out a new crib! I was super disappointed when they told us the one we wanted was out of stock but since we have another 5 months to go I figured I can wait a few weeks until they get more in!

Oh and the best part! We went shopping for clothes!! We picked out 4 or 5 new little outfits for her! And since there is a chance I could have her the end of March I figured it might be a little cold the first month or two of her life so we decided to get her some little UGG boots! 

CUTEST THINGS EVER!!

IT'S A GIRL!!

Thursday, October 27, 2011

 IT'S A GIRL!!!


Devan and I both were guessing it was going to be a boy, but to our surprise she is a girl!! But I couldn't be more excited!! I literally can not wait to start shopping for clothes, bows and shoes AND to decorate the nursery!! I told Devan before we found out if it is a girl be prepared to go broke because everything is SO much cuter in pink!! :)

Sadly, Devan works WAY too much and couldn't make it to the appointment. Seriously, his work schedule is absolutely crazy right now. But that might be a good thing cause he can take off lots of time when the baby comes! Anyways, since he couldn't go to the appointment I went by myself then surprised him at work with balloons!


Yep, she is gonna be a daddy's girl!!

Baby bump

So I decided to take the weekly belly picture because I didn't with my last pregnancy, and kind of regret not doing it. It would have been nice to know exactly how big I was each week to compare it with this pregnancy, but sadly I didn't take any pictures till the end. 

So I am going to take them with this pregnancy so I can compare them to future pregnancies. Yes, I want even MORE kids one day!

I started off doing it the original way, taking the picture myself with a camera phone in the mirror.
Yes, I know LAME.

 Week 12

Week 13

Week 14

Well, then someone introduced me to Pinterest, AKA the coolest website ever that is filled with amazingly creative ideas. I came a cross a blog on the website and am in love with the idea she used. She had a chalk board and tracked the pregnancy by that. I think her pictures turned out way cuter, but this is better the the average mirror picture, right?

Week 15

Announcing the BIG announcement!

Monday, October 24, 2011

Since we found it a little difficult to get everyone together at the same time, we ended up announcing our new expected little one a few different ways! 


 1. My favorite way of announcing it was to my family. We decided to let Titan be the one to share the wonderful news that he was soon to be a big brother. Since he couldn't quite say it himself yet we put it on his shirt and had him wear it to my parents house. Once we got there he still had his jacket on and we asked Grandpa to help him take it off. He did so, and started reading Titan's shirt! It was fun to see the reactions of everyone as they read the bottom of the shirt. 

 "I'm not lion. I'm going to be a big brother."


2. Next we announced it to Devan's family. We had a big BBQ at our house and invited everyone over. Right before we were about to eat, Devan let everyone know he was going to bless the food first. At the end of his prayer he blessed my pregnancy and the baby growing in my belly, then quickly said amen. It totally took everyone by surprise!! 

3. Since there was a few late comers to the BBQ we also set out some custom M&M's that said "WE'RE EXPECTING" "DUE DATE: 04/06/21" "BOY OR GIRL??" then some had pictures of binky's and teddy bears. So when they were getting their food they noticed the strange pink and blue M&M's!

4. Then we decided to let our close friends know before announcing it to everyone else. So we invited everyone over for a Halloween Party. We went dressed as an Oven and The Bun Maker. It would take people a minute or so before actually putting 2 and 2 together but they all got it and were super excited for us!!

"Bun in the Oven & The Bun Maker"

5. Lastly, we of course posted it on Facebook for the rest of the world to see. But not just any way.. We did it with a professional photo shoot with a chalk board announcing the new arrival.



So the word is finally out and we are pretty sure that everyone knows that we are SUPER excited to be adding a new member to our family!
