19 weeks!

I seriously can't believe I'm almost HALF WAY!!! SO crazy! I feel like we just found out yesterday! This bump of mine is growing like crazy! I can honestly say I fall more in love with this little babe everyday! We had an amazing 4th of July weekend hanging by the pool, eating grilled food and hanging out with family! I can't wait for Liam's first 4th next year!

How far along: 19 weeks! Almost halfway there!!!
Gender: It's a BOY! Liam Justin! :)
Weight gain: 3-5 lbs! I go back Friday for my 20 week ultrasound so I'll find out for sure then!
Maternity clothes: A few! I've basically been living in maxi dresses! And I still use the rubber band trick for my pants!
Stretch marks: So far so good!!! I've been using my stretch mark oil like crazy!
Belly button in or out: Out! It sticks out so far lol!
Sleep: I still need lots of sleep but it's getting WAY more uncomfortable! Especially now that I'm not supposed to be sleeping on my back! Plus I always have the urge to pee 500 times a night!
Best moment this week: Having a few days off to be productive around the house and spending a wonderful 4th of July weekend with family! :)
Miss anything: Being skinny lol! He's so worth it though!
Movement: YES!!! Seriously the best thing I've ever experienced! Hoping Justin will be able to feel him soon!
Cravings: Hmm... lets see... EVERYTHING! I'm always, always hungry! But seriously- anything FRESH! Fresh garden tomatoes + mayo + toast = the best creation on the planet! 
Looking forward to: Our 20 week ultrasound on Friday and getting away for the weekend with my love!

Baby Lust

It's been awhile! But I'm back with a FRESH-new design, baby name and GENDER! We're so excited to say that baby is a BOY! We had our gender reveal party almost two weeks ago {more on that later} and we decided to name him Liam Justin! LJ for short after our initials!

I had myself convinced this baby was a girl but I honestly couldn't be happier about this wonderful surprise! Ever since I found out he was a boy I can't contain myself! I seriously LIVE on Etsy, Pinterest & babygap.com! I put together this little baby "wish list!" Baby Liam is going to be one stylish, little dude!

In other news- I'm happy to announce I will be a rep for Happy Baby Wrap
I can't wait to carry Liam in my little wrap! AHHHH, seriously I DIE!

PS- how fab is my new design?! I really wanted a simple/clean look and Kotryna was just the gal for the job! I will add an about me picture once I get my new maternity pictures done! I will also be hosting a giveaway for a FREE blog design later next week! Stay tuned!

Exciting Things + Review!

Soooo... it's been awhile! But I'm back with the most exciting news EVER! I'm so happy to announce that Justin and I are expecting our little miracle baby due November 28th! :) We're seriously OVER the moon!! I found out I was pregnant at the 3 week marker! I'm 9 weeks & 4 days today! I have been SOOOOO sick! I started Zofran as soon as I hit 6 weeks. I couldn't keep anything down! The medicine is helping but I'm still having severe food aversions and just not feeling myself. I've also been insanely tired. I literally could sleep for DAYS and still be tired. It will all be SO worth it though! :) As for the little babe- they're doing great! We had an ultrasound at week 7 and he/she was doing perfect! They had a heartbeat of 149 which they said was awesome! 

AHHHH I seriously can't express how happy I am to finally be pregnant again and start this journey to motherhood! God is SO good! I'm super excited to be back to blogging! I will be doing lots of bumpdates starting with my belated week 9! 
How far along: 9 weeks!
Gender: We find out between 18-20 weeks! & I can't wait! Daddy is predicting a boy & I think I'm leaning more towards a little girl! 
Weight gain: 1-2 lbs mostly from bloating! 
Maternity clothes: Not yet! But my jeans are getting tight!!
Stretch marks: No! & praying I cant make it through without any!
Belly button in or out: In
Sleep: I sleep like 12 hours a day if not more!
Best moment this week: Doctor's appointment today! I love making sure things are going OKAY!
Miss anything: Things sounding good. Seriously everything sounds SO gross all the time!
Movement: Not yet! I can't wait for that day!
Cravings: Ice cream/frozen yogurt that's about it...
Looking forward to: Our 13 week ultrasound & our Gender Reveal!!! :)
