Holy Holidays!!

Man-Oh-Man did the holidays do a damper on the scale this past week! OMG! I weighed like last Sunday and weighed 1x0 pounds (not telling the exact number!) and then this morning I weighed again, b/c I was worried b/c I have to go to the doctor on Friday and don't want to be a complete fatty, and it was 1x4 pounds! That's 4 pounds in like a week! I better start watching my food intake better, but I can't help I'm totally addicted to CHEESE, every shape and form and flavor - I love it all!

But I have to admit I've been slacking on the whole exercise front; I did well at first with Pre-Natal Yoga and walking, but haven't really done much in the past 6-8 weeks (except enjoying FOOD obviously!). However, my New Year's Resolution is to start walking again at least every other day. I know I'm going to have to start slow though b/c my poor heart feels like it's beating a million miles a minute anyway-they say at this point my heart is having to work 40-50% more then usual just to support the pregnancy, but still the couple times I have walked in the past month or so I get so out of breath so quickly and my heart just pounds, so I know i have to be careful and take it slow, but hopefully that will help! I mean it has too-right? It's got to be better then sitting on my rear-end everynight watching TV and watching myself get bigger!

So there it is-my new plan, but I'm not starting until Thursday! Haha! Real motivated, huh...

That's right, Jenny and Michelle totally jinxed me last weekend. We had a holiday party in Chanute on Saturday night and the girls were like, "Oh let me see your belly!" So I go there isn't much to see - refer to the 16 week pictures - but I went ahead and showed them what I had. Then they proceeded to say, "Oh you can't even tell!" to which I agreed.

Sunday morning... I wake up and go to the bathroom and look in the mirror and there is this "thing" and this "thing" is definitely sticking out much farther then it was yesterday. I thought, "Oh, its just me." But then Chris was like, "Hey, you are starting to get a little baby belly!" Huh, he noticed maybe it's real?! I've been debating all week whether I'm just full or if it's really there?! - I think it's there, or at least starting to be there.

So THANKS Jenny and people are starting to be able to tell. You mean, mean girls! Haha!

16 Weeks!!

Here it is! 16 Weeks today! Yea! Nothing much has changed, I think I'm a little bigger?!? Everything I've been reading says that the next 3 weeks are HUGE growth weeks for the baby so hopefully 18 Weeks will be much different!! I've been feeling some stretching going on, but haven't really seen the results of that yet! It seems to be the worse at the end of the day; basically my belly button feels like it is being pulled apart?! I'm guessing/hoping that's normal! Haha!

Miss Addy Borjas!!

It's taken me awhile but here are some pictures of my brother, Derek and his wife, Adrianne's little girl! She is so cute!

Sorry the pictures are kind of zoomed out, but I couldn't do any editing on them? I guess b/c they were emailed to me? IDK!

I can say, Chris better get a lot more comfortable holding a baby - QUICK!! Haha!

Keep an eye out for out Baby Belly Picture #2 later this week!

To Find Out...Or Not To Find Out...

That is the Question!!

So last week, we probably had 5 + people tell us they couldn't believe we were going to find out the sex of the baby and that we totally shouldn't do it. My reaction was, "Yeah, right - I'm finding out!" Chris agreed, but then a day later he was like, " you think we shouldn't find out what the baby is and wait?"


No way, this was the plan all along, and we ARE finding out! I have a friend that didn't find out and I know it was exciting, but I just can't do it! It'll still be exciting...I've decided we aren't telling the name, whenever we decide on one that is, so that will be a surprise for everyone else!! I'm just too much of a planner/organizer and I have to know what is going on like way in advance - even for a lunch date!

Not a whole lot else is new...just waiting to not be SO tired and I'm sick of this cold weather already!!

14 Weeks!!

We are officially 14 weeks prego today! Yea, out of the first trimester finally! Whew!

We also had our monthly doctor's appointment today, the wait wasn't as bad as last time only about an hour (which is good compared to the hour and a half last time). The appointment was super quick: I got weighted - not happy, I gained 4 pounds in the last month making the grand total 8 pounds for the first trimester! I had my blood pressure taken 130 over 70, which I thought was a little on the high side, but they said it was still OK? Doctor listened to the heartbeat with the little doppler - it was 160 beats/minute, that is good! I had some blood drawn to test my thyroid levels again - they have totally tanked over the last 6 months so we are monitoring closely and probably increase my dosage of the hormone replacement...maybe that's why I've been SO tired!

So we go back on January 2nd and they will do the "Quad Screen" which is a blood test that looks for signs of Down's Syndrome, Spina Bifida (sp?), and Cerebral Palsy (sp?) I think?! Not sure on the last one...

Then after that we should get to find out what SEX the baby is! So I'm excited about step at a time!
