{TS.A.H.M} Our First Look at Peanut | 12 wks, 6 days

12 wks, 6 days
Due: January 2, 2018

We finally got to see our little peanut on Monday. S(he) was squirming and lifting it's arms. Even the tech said "My goodness child, stop moving so I can get a heart beat!" Haha The girls never had that issue, they moved a lot but never gave the tech a hard time! 

From the look of the ultrasound I say it looks like a boy, but who knows. 

6 weeks roughly and we finally know what we're having! Please wants to put it in an envelope and have a gender reveal this time. I wanted to find out and have a gender reveal. I just hate that now he says it when it's so close.

I just want to know right away. I want to have that private moment with P that we had with the other two before everyone else knows. I guess we'll see.

I'm just on a high now that I got to see s(he). I teared up finally being able to see them.

The girls are just super happy and even though She still isn't happy with the possibility of having a little brother, the more cuteness she sees, she won't be able to help herself.

I spent all day looking up gender reveal ideas and I'm so over trying to be creative. It's just the same old stuff. I just know I want the girls to be the ones to kind of announce it. Whether it be shooting paint at us or will string...I don't know.

We'll figure it out. 

{TS.A.H.M} Doctor's Visit + Gender Talk + A Play

I went to see the doctor Monday morning. I asked him about my appointment that was supposed to be rescheduled for my ultrasound and he said it most likely got misplaced. So, he filled out another form and I MAY get one before I leave on vacation, but chances are when I get back I'll have something.

I have no pictures. I've been fairly patient but I would love to have an image just so I know everything is okay. 

The doctor said everything is looking good and he gave the okay to fly if everything is normal. 

I've been feeling much better these days. I still don't have much of an appetite but I eat when I'm hungry.

I'm not feeling as nauseous as I have been but lightheaded is still pretty big at the moment. Going into my secpnd trimester has been pretty exciting though. I feel lile everythingnis flying by this time around. I'm too busy with the girls to think about it too much. At night I'm trying to take it all in and enjoy it.

S keeps rubbing my belly and thinking she feels the baby's fingers. Boy, does she not know what she's in for! Haha

Once I get my actual ultrasound done finally, I'll only have to wait a few more before we find out what we're having. From now, it's only 8 weeks away! By August we will know what thos little peanut is going to be! I'm so excited!

Praying for a boy, but so happy no matter what it is. E wants a brother and S wants another sister. And P and I are hoping for a boy so that we have less drama in the house. The girls are great but they're always whinning or complaining about something.

"She looked at me the wrong way!", "she won't give my toy back!"...etc.

I love them and would do anything for them but man do they need to get over the fights. AND they aren't even teens yet! S wears E's dresses now and she freaks out how much more when she's in high school?

S loves having that sisterly bond with E and sharing interests so I think having another sister would make her feel comfortable. E knows what it's like to have a sister so she wants to experience things from a different angle.

S said specifically she won't like her brother if she has one. I get it, she will, but she is very set on a sister at this point, haha. E would be happy either way in the end.

We're a little more calm this time around seeing as we know this whole process. Yes, every pregnancy is different but I think I've been trying to embrace it a little more than I did the first two times. Now that I'm pretty much over the sickness, I'm now enjoying my days more and able to get out and do some things.

I found a baby swing on a buy and sale here for $40 so I got it early. We borrowed one for both girls and I didn't want to buy one now seeing as this is our last. The only things I'm willing to invest in, is a 4 in 1 crib, stroller + carseat, bottle maker, clothes, and blankets. Other than that, I'd rather borrow or get secondhand.

A friend brought a garbage bag full of maternity clothing (so thankful!) I'm good for the pregnancy as long as I don't grow bigger than them all.

Today, I'm going to E's school play. She's in "A Mid Summer Nights Dream" by Shakespere and she's got a main part as Helena!

Tomorrow is her last day of school as we are going on vacation Friday! Eee, can't wait!

{TS.A.H.M} Announcememt Shoot

The secret is finally out! We got our images a few hours after I wrote my last post, so I waited until Pat got home from work and we got to announce it on our 9th anniversary! 

{TS.A.H.M} Dragging Weeks + The Flu from HELL

Aside from feeling sick 90% of the time, I've been doing pretty well consodering.

E got the flu and then it literally hit me overnight and this past Friday I had the worst of everything. My head was in a bucket, my head felt like it was going to explode (or implode) and my back ached and my mouth ached. Everything that could hurt did.

I had E massage my back while I was face first in the couxh crying for most of the day. And then I had fighting kids most of the day. I was just a mess!

The weeks feel super long to me right now and when you're feeling crappy, the last thing you want is days to drag on.

Today, I'm 10 weeks, 2 days. I say 'only' but when we think about it, I'm already in my third month! The baby the size of a plum already.

I'm still waiting for the hospital to call me for an ultrasound. I'm not impressed. I'm hoping I can get one soon because I'm going on vacation with the girls in less than 2 weeks. I'd like to see/know something.

We got the girls photo shoot done the end of May and we're just waiting until we get the images back to announce this baby. 

Today is also our 9th wedding anniversary! 10 years I've been stuck with him...can't seem to get rid of him no matter what I do! ;)

P has been working a lot and even had to stay overnight a few nights here and there. It's been tough but we're managing. 

In a few days I'm going to start packing for our own trip. The girls and I are going on our own and P is going to stay back this time to work.

The girls are very exciting and I've got a bit of anxiety flying with the girls on my own while I'm 2.5 months pregnant. It's only because I've been so sick and tired all the time, I just want this trip to go as smoothly as it can.

Did I mention we're on a 530 am flight? Yeeeeaaahhh. 

I'm crossing all fingers and toes.
