18 WEEKS… and a New Year!


Weeks pregnant?: 18 WEEKS! (missed my 17 weeker! The past month has been CRAZY!) 

Total weight gain: 10.5 pounds
Maternity clothes?: Still just jeans and a couple of shirts, the belly band helps with a lot but moving into some dresses and what not to feel a little more girlie since sweatpants and stretchy pants have become my favorite article off clothing… I swear there has to be one GIANT baby in there. 
Stretch marks?: Negative, and I am lotioning it up to make sure it stays that way

Sleep: I still toss and turn like crazy and wake up sometimes in an absolute terror from these nightmares… this baby likes some scary dreams! 
Best moment this week?: I would say waking up one morning and seeing that my belly button was starting to pop out! Haha, I know it sounds a little dumb, but it means my munchkin is growing! 
Miss Anything?: SLEEP, oh how I miss a good nights sleep! 
Movement?: DEFINITELY!!!! I can feel movement all the time, I cannot wait till Michael can feel it too! 
Food cravings: Popsicles, oh how I want popsicles..

Symptoms?: Bathroom every five seconds and TONS of water… the non fun symptoms. I am starting to feel like Elizabeth Banks in What to Expect When Your Expecting and all I want is to be the cute skinny one in high heels with twins… I am hoping this means I have an angel baby… let a girl dream! lol 

Belly Button in or out?: In
Wedding rings on or off?: On :)  
Happy or Moody most of the time?:  EXTREMELY HAPPY AND EXCITED
Looking forward to?: Celebrating the New Year and the amazingness that will come with 2013! It is just crazy exciting! 


  Contrary to the fact I cannot read my little one weighs almost 7 ounces. He or she busy flexing his/her arms and legs — movements that I will start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. The baby’s blood vessels are visible through the thin skin, and ears are now in their final position, although they’re still standing out from his/her head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around the nerves, a process that will continue for a year after the baby’s born




I still cannot believe that this time last year I wasnt even engaged, I would be the next day, but good gracious I had no clue!!!! I am so grateful to God for the man I have been so richly blessed with! I am blown away by the man of my dreams daily! A year ago, he was nervous knowing that January 1, he would be proposing to me….CRAZY!!! In the past year, we have gotten engaged, walked down the isle and said “I Do”, moved to Tallahassee because God blessed us with a wonderful new job… in the midst of that move found out we were expecting after years of knowing it would be “impossible” all the while a man who stood by my side not caring because he knew God would provide, and good gracious did he ever! I am blown away by the gifts of this past year and I will ever be grateful to my wonderful Savior for all of the love and mercy He has shown me, especially through the man He brought into my life to show me exactly what I put in my wedding vows…. Michael, you are a testimony of Gods love and redemption and grace in life and I will forever be in awe of my savior for the sweet gift that you are, remembering that our marriage is a sweet testimony of Christ’s love for his church. Happy New Year Everyone and I hope 2013 is a blessed year!!
