We are over the moon excited to announce that we are having a baby boy!!! I'm still in shock (and a little scared, ha!) but we can't wait for this new adventure! We decided to find out at 14 weeks because I just couldn't wait any longer. So we went to the Fetal Studio in the mall and it was so fun to have our little family there to hear the big news. And the doctor said he was 300% certain it was a boy so he better be right!

Holden is very excited and Hattie is still warming up to the idea and said that she will miss all the clothes. Sean of course is beyond thrilled to add some testosterone to this crazy bunch of girls. I of course, am excited to be adding some blue to our sea of pink and have already started shopping for this little mister. Now if only we could decide on a name...

Merry Christmas and 12 Weeks

Merry Christmas!  We were spoiled rotten by Santa once again and had a magical white Christmas spent with family.  Hattie got the stuffed kitty cat she had asked for and Holden a stuffed doggy. They were also surprised with an Easy Bake Oven from Grandma Sue Sue.  It really has been a lovely day.


I am also 12 weeks today! And let's just ignore the fact that I already forgot to blog about week 11, ha! This pregnancy is going by painfully slow BUT I am allllllmost done with the first trimester so hopefully once that happens it will start to speed up.


Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 12 weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a lime
Maternity Clothes: Not yet.  But I sure do like my stretchy pants :)
Gender: We won't know until 16 weeks.  I feel like it's another girl but I guess we'll see :)
Movement: Not yet, but can't wait!
Sleep: Sleeping awful.  I wake up several times a night to use the bathroom and can never fall back asleep.
Weight Gain:  None.  I'll go off of my doctors appointments. So this will likely change in a few weeks, ha!
What I miss: A good nights sleep
Cravings:  Anything salty, carbs, and mexican food.  Sweets NEVER sound good which is SO not me.
Symptoms:  I am finally starting to feel a little better as far as nausea goes and am down to only 1 Zofran a day (started out with 2 Zofran during the day and a Phenergan at night) so yay! I am still feeling super tired though and love a good afternoon nap.
