Well...a lot has gone on since my last post :) ALL GREAT THINGS! Alex bought me a wonderful Valentine's Day gift, which was an early sonogram to find out the gender of our baby. The sonogram was wonderful and so relaxing. Her legs were crossed for about the first ten minutes of the sonogram and then her umbillcal cord was in the way, she was being a little stubborn. HAHA (well she is her mother's daughter) We had all of our friends and family take a guess at the gender, with an overwhelming guess of GIRL and some boy guesses as well. Alex and I also wrote down our guess on a piece of paper at home before we left the house we both wrote down "girl"! WE WERE RIGHT! IT'S A GIRL! Our 2 year old nephew Keegan also guessed "baby girl" several times, and never guessed baby boy. We are so excited about meeting our little girl in JULY!
She already has a quarter of a closet of clothes and we just found out 2 weeks ago! She is going to be a spoiled little one, but that's okay! :) We also ordered her crib on Saturday and we are excited to get her nursery together. We also get to see her again on Monday at my 20 week sonogram!
As far as names for her go we have 3 picked out that we reeeeaallly LOVE, so much that we have decided to take all 3 names to the hospital and decide when we meet her. We aren't giving up the names, because we don't want anyone to sway our decision in one way or the other. All 3 are very different from each other and all go very nicely with the middle name we have picked out. :)

I thought that I had been feeling her move at times when I am laying down, BUT I FOR SURE FELT HER TONIGHT while laying on my back, I felt her kick and/or punch a couple times though it was light and it felt like she did a flip once too! Which I would doubt, because we actually saw her completely roll over during our last sonogram though I could not feel it yet. She is definitely an active little thing ( I think we are going to have our hands full). IT was AMAZING to finally be able to feel her in there though! I love her so much and I haven't even met her yet :)

How far along? 19 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Surprisingly still have not gained, I'm sure I will soon enough. But, I think being so nauseous and eating better has actually balanced out with my baby weight causing me not to gain just yet. I also get full really easy and have to eat a lot of small meals.
Maternity clothes? As of recent YES! I don't have a huge belly, but my regular clothes don't fit!!
Stretch marks? Yes :( a couple small ones on my hips, and tatas :( Coco Buttering them up!
Sleep: Sleep is good, but I usually wake up 2 or 3 times to pee and change positions!!
Best moment this week: Buying a new car and her crib
Have you told family and friends: YES!
Movement: Yes, but not everyday and only when I am laying down.
Food cravings: Fruit, Sweets, Cookies, Milkshakes (funny coming from the person who didn't used to be much of a sweets or fruit person)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Soda (which I used to drink all the time before I was pregnant now I can hardly stand it) and Grilled Chicken really grosses me out right now as well.
Have you started to show yet: Just recently got the first pop out! Definitely pushed me right over the edge of some clothes that were still fitting, that are no longer fitting.
Leakage: No
Gender prediction: IT'S A GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Definitely happy, but I can definitely be moody too!
Milestones: This whole month has been HUGE! We found out IT'S A GIRL! We bought her crib, we bought a new car, and she got some new clothes :)

The New Year is here!

Well...not a whole lot has changed since my last update on here. Still feeling woozy at times and can't eat a whole lot (some days are better than others). But, this should be letting up very soon. (I hope)
We got to hear our little gummi bears heartbeat at our last appointment, but Alex could hear it better than I could since he was right down by my tummy. Hopefully I will be able to hear it better at our next doctor's visit...the visit after that we get to find out if it is a baby boy or girl! :) I don't have any feelings as to what our little munchkin is, which surprises me because I thought I would. But, I am soooo ready to find out if we get to buy pink or blue :)

•How far along?: 13 weeks
•Total weight gain: 2 lbs...I still haven't been able to eat much
•How big is baby?: About the size of a peach
•Maternity clothes?: Starting to need the maternity jeans...shirts are still way to big, but I'm sure I will grow into them.
•Stretch marks?: Not yet
•Sleep?: Sleeping is good...but I definitely have to get up to pee more often than before
•Best moment this week?: Possibly feeling the baby move :)
•Movement?: Well...I know it is supposed to be to early, but I drank a glass of orange juice and was laying on my side when I felt a little flutter, like a butterfly bouncing in my lower abdominal area. I told myself it wasn't the baby, and then realized I had the glass of juice and have read that can really make the baby very active. I looked this up some on the internet and have read that it is possible. Since this is my first pregnancy and I don't know what the movement feels like just yet. I guess I will know in a few more weeks when he or she does really start to move, I will let you know if it is the same feeling ;)
•Food cravings?: Fruit, especially pineapple and strawberries
•Belly button in or out?: in
•What I miss: Being able to eat whatever I wanted
•What I'm looking forward to: Finding out whether it is a boy or a girl in 7 weeks :)
