12 Weeks Pregnant!

Well, we've made it to 12 weeks today! I am still in awe of how great God is and the miracle that is taking place right before my eyes. I was hoping the morning sickness would have slowed down by now...but in all reality it hasn't! I have been spending a good chunk of the morning, bowing to the porcelain god! UGH!! I am hoping this ends soon.


I started seeing a chiro to help alleviate some of this HORRIBLE back pain I've been having! I'm serious! It is not good. I am having trouble sleeping, back spasms, the whole works! Some, seriously exciting stuff!! haha!!


Tomorrow is our appointment to hear the heartbeat. I actually heard it by myself last Friday, because I was cramping so I went to the Dr., and she found the little bean's heartbeat! It was the most incredible sound I think I've ever heard. I can't wait until tomorrow though when Josh gets to hear it for the first time. It will be such a blessing.


Well, I actually lost a pound this week, I'm sure thanks to the morning sickness and vomiting, but I guess at least I'm not packing on the pounds yet. I'm sure that is to come!! haha!! Eventhough I haven't gained any weight yet, it sure doesn't feel that way! Nothing is fitting and I just feel fat, but I have to remember this little baby is growing by the day inside me!


Well, as always, here are some new pictures of me. 12 weeks and down 1 pound from pre-pregnancy weight! Enjoy!
And of course with some clothes on! :)

11 Weeks Today!

Well, today marks 11 weeks completed. It is amazing just how fast and yet how slow all this is going. Today when I stepped on the scale I was up 0.2 pounds from my prepregnancy weight. So I finally crept over the threshold. The bloat seems to be starting to go away and it looks like there may be the start of a "bump" taking place.


I am still pretty sick, dry heaving every morning and sometimes vomiting throughout the day, but I am always reminded the end result of this, and it seems to make it all the more worthwhile.


So as always, here are my belly pics from this week, one bare belly, and one covered for those of you sick of seeing my yucky belly!! :)

Am I getting an actual bump or is it just me?

It's our 3 year Wedding Anniversary!

Can you believe it? Today Josh and I have been married 3 years! That is so amazing to me. For those of you who don't know I thought I would share some insight into our marriage!
I had the BIGGEST crush on Josh before I ever knew his name. I worked at Gold's, he worked out there. So I saw him everyday, but was too scared to talk to him. I use to tell the girls that worked there though if I could marry anyone, I would marry him.
Fast forward, in August of 2002, his mom (who I knew very well) set us up. We went on our first date on August 13, 2002.
Josh proposed on September 13, 2003.
And we were married on October 16, 2004.
These last 3 years of marriage have been blessed beyond words. I have been blessed with a man who loves me despite my imperfections, who trusts me, encourages me, supports me, pushes me to better and loves me unconditionally. We have been blessed with trials and tribulations that in the end have made our marriage stronger than I ever could have imagined. God is the center of our marriage of because of that I am confident in the many years to come that we will share.
As we embark on the newest adventure in our marriage, preparing to become parents, I can't wait to see the way our marriage and love continues to grow.
Josh, thank you for being my support system, my inspiration and my best friend! I love you today, tomorrow and forever!
Happy Anniversary to Us!!

1/4 of the way done...10 weeks!!

Well, today is officially 10 weeks! 1/4 of the way done...Can you believe that this little baby is already a quarter of the way done! :) Crazy, huh? Well, things are going as well as can be expected. Still dry heaving...now accompanied by some vomiting! The joys of pregnancy, huh?

OH MY!! Well, here are the newest pictures of my expanding waistline...

And for your sake...here is one covered up!!! Two weeks from tomorrow we will get to hear our little bean's heartrate!! I can't wait! :) We are so EXCITED!!! :)
