The most joyous sound you ever did hear

I will let the video do the talking.
Isn't that just the most beautiful thing you've ever heard? I cried tears of joy! This is has been such a long road and God's wonderful blessing was beating right back at us. I have been super emotional lately and knew I'd be emotional when I heard our baby's heart beat. His heart was beating 184 bpm. Nice and strong! I'm starting to think that he may be a she with that strong heart beat. I've heard the higher the heart beat, the more likely it's a girl? We will see in 10 weeks! :)
Our baby now has a visible head, arms, and legs. Looks like a gummy bear. The cutest gummy bear I ever did see?

The morning sickness is all worth it for our miracle!

week 8- Bump Update and Letters For Baby


Bump Update
How far along? 8 weeks
Total weight gain: -2 lbs. Welcome to the world of morning sickness!
Maternity clothes?  I can still fit in my regular pants, but maternity clothes are so much more comfortable!
Stretch marks? nope!
    Sleep: I've been sleeping great besides getting up to pee 1-2 times a night.
Best moment this week: being stuck in our house for 4 days. Honestly, there was no way I could function with this morning sickness. It's ALL day sickness. So I had 4 days to just stay in my pajamas and sleep!
Miss anything? Sushi. I know I've said this before, but sushi has always been a comfort food for me, and I can't have it!!
Food cravings: It seems that whenever I see or smell something I immediately want it!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Oh yes, this has begun! I cannot eat eggs. Even writing the word makes me nauseous. Nothing else really turns me off, but I can smell everything! Kyle has a glass of whiskey the other night, and it was as if he had the glass right under my nose! Yuck.
Gender: Way to soon to tell, but lately I've been having feelings it's a girl. And next week I'm sure I'll feel like it's a boy :)
Labor signs: I sure hope not! He just got in there :)
Symptoms: headaches, cramping, constantly peeing, nausea, can smell everything, acne. It's all beginning!
Belly button in or out?  In! And I don't think it will ever pop. It's the deepest inney ever!
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: I am happy! Our baby is doing amazing and I couldn't be happier!
Looking forward to: our first OB appointment tomorrow! Can't wait to see and hopefully hear the baby!

WIWW: Pinspired

I have been loving being able to wear falls clothes, but of course, weather in Texas is unreliable and we've been in the high 70's for the past 3 days and will have ice and COLD for the next week. What?! Whatever. High 70's or not I brought out my puffy vest! I couldn't wait to wear it. I found this adorable outfit on pinterest and started searching high and low to find where I could get all the pieces!

 vest// jcrew // sweater // old navy // button down // jcrew // jeans // anthropologie // shoes // audrey brooke


I'm lucky I got these pictures too. Because not 30 minutes after this I was having a date with the toilet. This morning sickness is killing me ALL DAY LONG! I sure can put on a smiling face though can't I? But I can say I feel pretty with my pregnancy glow, even with the puking :)

week 7- Bump Update and Letter For Baby

How far along? 7 weeks
Total weight gain: 1 pound. It's starting early! My tummy is already starting to pooch!
Maternity clothes?  My tummy has started to pooch and I can't suck it in anymore. Maternity pants are just so much more comfortable. Since the pooch doesn't look like a baby bump (just like I had too many donuts), wearing maternity shirts gives me a little extra material to cover the fat. 
Stretch marks? nope!
    Sleep: I've been sleeping great besides getting up to pee 1-2 times a night.
Best moment this week: seeing our baby's heartbeat!
Miss anything?  I miss cold medicine. I have a cold and can't take anything. Ugh!
Food cravings: It seems that whenever I see or smell something I immediately want it!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope and I hope it stays that way!
Gender: No clue, but we are hoping for a boy!
Labor signs: I sure hope not! He just got in there :)
Symptoms: headaches, cramping, constantly peeing, occasional nausea. Nothing too bad yet!
Belly button in or out?  In! And I don't think it will ever pop. It's the deepest inney ever!
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: I am happy! Our baby is doing amazing and I couldn't be happier!
Looking forward to: our first OB appointment next week.
