Bedding and movement

Welp today I got our bedding for the nursery!! Whoo hoo! I have been looking for months now and felt like there wasn't anything I was crazy about. I had this color scheme of grey and yellow in my mind and so there was nothing I could find that was good enough. SOOOO I broadened my search and found this....

What do you guys think?! Our crib, changing table, and dresser are all white as well! I put everything on our crib and hung the mobile and quite like it!

Also another question to throw out to y'all... When did you first feel baby move?! I feel like maybe I have felt it move, but can't be for sure.
Hope everyone is having a peachy Monday!

Baby Moon

Remember a few posts back when I said I had a week of time off coming up?! Well we booked our trip! We are heading to HAWAII for 5 nights 6 days!!! Whoo hoo! We are so excited to get away, just the two of us, before baby comes. We are staying in Oahu, off Waikiki beach. We have both been before, but never together. I'm excited for some relaxation, beautiful scenery, and some fun in the sun!

We also had an appt with our NP on Friday. It was suppose to be a teaching visit...but there wasn't much teaching that went on. She pretty much asked how I was feeling, listened to fetal heart tones, an asked if we had questions! Hmm... ok. It was great getting to hear baby though. We also got to make our appt for our gender ultrasound! It will be the day before we leave for our trip!

What do you guys think?? Boy or Girl?!

14 week belly

I need to post a pic that Ang takes of me, but it seems like whenever I'm ready to take a pic we don't have our camera! So the cell phone will work for now! Little baby is trucking along!

Random things..!

* When we moved into our house it was a foreclosure and the person who lived here last took all the ceiling fans and most light fixtures in the house! This July will mark two years of living here but we have been sooooo slow in getting all those things replaced. Especially in the rooms that we aren't in very often. So I'm proud to say we bought a new fan with lights and all from Lowes for the baby room! Oh the little things that excite me! I get to excited thinking about getting the nursery all ready.

* My little pooch/baby bump is still slowly growing! I still haven't gained any weight yet! I have days where I have no nausea and eat every two hours or so. Then have a day like yesterday when anything I put in my mouth makes me want to puke!

* On the upside.. I feel like I'm back to being myself. I feel for the most part I have more energy and my face is clearing up!

* I'm looking forward to having almost a week off work this time next month! I think we decided we are going to do some kind of mini vacation. It will prob be a last minute thing b/c we still haven't planned anything.

* The show Intervention of A&E is so addicting (haha) to watch. I can get stuck watching two or three episodes in a row

* Our next time we get to see the doctor is this coming Thursday. The receptionist that scheduled it called it our teaching visit and that it would be with the nurse practitioner. We keep wondering what they will be teaching?! I hope when we are there the set up our ultrasound for 19-20 weeks! We are excited to know for sure what this little baby is.

That's the latest and greatest folks!

Seems like 14 weeks is time for my uterus to really start stretching! It's killing me. This off and on cramps hurt so bad and make me feel so uncomfortable. It seems like they are worse when I'm laying down and trying to go to sleep!

I looked up and googled a lot about this last night to make sure I'm normal! Round ligament pain starts at 14 weeks and that has got to be what these pains and cramps are!

Anyone else experience these?!

Happy One Year

So this past Saturday January 8th marked Ang and I's one year anniversary of marriage!! This year also marks four years that we have been together! Wow, it has all gone by so quick. We have been through so much together and our lives are about to get so much more crazy when this lil one arrives!
Here are some pics from last year in Whistler, Canada where we got married. (We also got engaged there the year prior!) If you haven't been there...GO!

Well well well

We had our NT scan yesterday and everything went great! Baby was with-in defined limits for the measurements. We still have to wait for the blood work to come back but the lady that did our ultrasound said usually if the baby looks ok the blood work will come back ok.

Thanks Robbie for mentioning we should ask about gender because the tech felt pretty confident in guessing the sex! She said not to go out and buy clothes or paint the nursery but if she had to guess it was a BOY!!!! Little baby wasn't cooperating very much and didn't turn the exact way we wanted him to. This scan was also different b/c the baby is big enough to see its bladder and stomach and where the umbilical cord inserts into the stomach. It was so cool! Baby didn't move as much as it normally does which kind of worried me but the tech said that was ok b/c baby sleeps a ton. I think also b.c I didn't eat anything before I went.

I have taken a few belly pics so far but this 13 week one is the only one that resembles a little belly!

Some random thoughts bullet points

* I keep thinking back to the day we got our BFP and still can't believe it. I actually can't believe everyday that we are going to be moms!

* I think I officially have a pooch! Ang said new years eve she could totally tell there was something, but I didn't believe her. These last few days there is def a little tummy that I can't suck in!

* I go in for my NT scan tomorrow... has anyone else had this done? The doc made it seem like a routine thing that everyone gets done. I think it is just an ultrasound. The plus is my little sister P is in town and she is going to come with so she can see her little nephew or niece!

* We did one of those inteligenders this morning. I know it's silly and probably not very accurate but it said we are having a boy! I guess we will find out soon enough...6 more weeks! Anyone else do this?
