11 weeks!

Wow I cant believe I am almost done with the 1st Trimester! It has gone so fast and its scary to think that in just 6 months we will have a little baby! We moved this weekend (more on that and pictures later) and I did not get a chance to take a belly pic. I dont think it has really changed much though. Here is what has happend this week!

*How far along?: 11 weeks 5 days
*Total weight gain?: 8 lbs! Yikes! But it really is all in my belly...well and boobs...
*How big is baby?: The size of a lime
*Sex:  not sure yet but Im hoping to get a little idea at our u/s tomorrow :)
*Maternity clothes: I really love my maternity pants for work! They feel like yoga pants! I have not gotten any jeans yet and really need to! I just cant seem to make my old jeans comfortable- even with the bella band
*Stretch marks: NO! I woke up the other morning and thought I had one on my boob....well after a panic I realized it was just a mark from the sheets! Silly me!
*Sleep:Really good now that we moved...I was a little anxious the few days  before but sleeping great now!
*Movement:Not yet, but Im always waiting for it.
*Food cravings: Chef Boyardee Ravioli Love it for lunch!
*Labor signs: N/A
*Belly button in or out: Still in.
*What I miss: Shopping for bathing suits...all the new ones seem extra cute this year since I know I won't be sporting a teeny bikini..well at least not until my bump is cuter!
*What I'm looking forward to: Our next ultrasound tomorrow! cant wait to see what Baby B looks like now!
Best moment of the week: The janitor at work asked if I was pregnant. Lucky for him I am!

We pretty much got all moved in this past weekend and now I am just skowly getting organized and finding neat ways to decorate! I will post some pics soon of where we are so far. Our rug will be here today and the couch not for 3 weeks. The house still seems empty but I will fill it up!

10 weeks and House Update!

10 Weeks!

Wow, the bump really shows up well in pictures haha! This was taken at the end of the day when the bump is more out... and Im looking a little tired! :)

Close up! Please excuse the unmade bed in the background :)

Here is this weeks baby update!

*How far along?: 10 weeks 4 days
*Total weight gain?: 5-6 lbs
*How big is baby?: The size of a prune....about 1- 1/2 inch
*Sex:  not sure yet
*Maternity clothes: Im wearing all maternity pants and lots of loose shirts. Dresses are good too, but its still a little cool outside. Bella band is not as great pants wont stay up in the back with the band.
*Stretch marks: Nope and Im basting myself like a Thanksgiving turkey1-2 tines a day! (Thats what the directions say )
*Sleep: Good this week! Only waking up once to go potty and sleeping great otherwise! 
*Movement: Just my indigestion haha!
*Food cravings: Fruit is still good...but a lot of things just dont sound good. Eating meals is a challenge cause Im so picky right now! 
*Labor signs: N/A
*Belly button in or out: Still in.
*What I miss: Being able to throw on just any outfit. Getting dressed takes a little more planning since so many things do not fit anymore!
*What I'm looking forward to: Our next ultrasound on the 25th! Im hoping to see a little money shot :) I know it will still be early (12weeks) but there is a chance to see it!
Best moment of the week: Getting a little bump!

And now for the house update! We are moving in this weekend and I could not be more excited! I took these pics over the weekend and we now have carpet but not much else is left to do! I will be sure to take some pics of our move!

This is the den...we will have doors on the cabinets this week

Below is the rug I orderd from Crate and Barrel that will go in the den.
I have had my eye on this rug for 6 months and finally going to get it!

This is the granite in out kitchen. Its called Santa Cecilia.

The dining room with coffered ceiling

View from front door

Close up of my chandelier! This was quite a bargain! It is a $1600 light that I got for $500! I got it from Lux Lighting in Duluth....they are awesome!!
My wonderful husband in the loft. I told him we could play Romeo and Juliet haha!

The nursery!! We went ahead and did the trim but will not paint until we know the sex.

Bonus room...this will be a great playroom :) For us and the baby!

Thats all for now! Ill post more when we get moved!!

Well, only 3 more weeks until I'm finished with the first trimester!! I have actually been feeling really good with the exception of getting tired at 7 every night! I managed to make it until 9:30 last night and actually saw 10:00 2 times last week! My poor husband....he is left alone to watch TV everynight since his wife can't stay awake! Thankfully he is beyond supportive and completely understands :)

We are moving into our house on March 20!!! My husband and I spent the weekend watching our driveway be poured, purchasing the lighting for our house, hanging mirrors and putting knobs on all 78 of the cabinet doors and drawers! ( Ok so I was more of a spectator for the last part) Needless to say all of this wore my little pregnant self out! But we got a lot done and we are SO close! Only 12 more days!!!

Here's whats happening with me and the baby!

*How far along?: 9 weeks 3 days

*Total weight gain?: 5-6 lbs

*How big is baby?: Small

*Sex: No clue

*Maternity clothes: All of my work pant will no longer button so I did get some pants this weekend, but they are still kind of loose. Bella band is still working nicely! :)

*Stretch marks: Nope and my Mamma Mio tummy butter is on its way!

*Sleep: OK, having some weird dreams and being wide awake from 430-530. But other than that pretty good.

*Best moment this week: Buying a good bra haha!

*Movement: Nope

*Food cravings: Still pasta...and fruit, specifically strawberries and pineapple!

*Labor signs: N/A

*Belly button in or out: Still in...and its VERY in so Im interested to see what happens!

*What I miss: Nothing yet, too excited about being pregnant!

*What I'm looking forward to: Looking pregnant, right now I just feel fat :(
