  • 18 Week Pregnancy Update, Gender Prediction and Beautiful Nursery Goodies from Honey and the Hive!!

    How far along? 18 weeks!

    Total weight gain/measurements: Now at 108 lbs!! 

    Maternity clothes: I haven't bought anything maternity specific this week. Still rocking my maternity leggings and basic tees. Even though i'm not in love with jeans, I was thinking about getting a pair so I don't look the exact same ever single day. lol

    Stretch marks? No. 

    Sleep: I have had good days and bad days this week. Some nights I fit perfectly in my maternity noodle and sleep like a baby, other nights are somewhat nightmarish. No matter what I do, I can't get comfortable. 

    Best moment this week:  First kick! It was so cute! Having a tattoo on my tummy makes it a  little easier to see movement too. But this baby is kicking away in there! Phil got to feel it for the first time this week, it was pretty special <3

    Miss anything? Not really. 

    Movement: Kicks!

    Food cravings: chipotle cilantro lime rice!!! And Ice water forever! 

    Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)

    Gender: Wed, Nov. 19th is THE day!! But I won't be revealing anything until Thanksgiving!!  

    Symptoms: Peeing all of the time. I have been getting light headed more often. I had what felt like a mini panic attack last weekend while waiting to be seated for lunch. I got hot, cold and sweaty all at the same time. I needed a seat and a huge glass of ice water. 

    Belly button in or out? In!

    Wedding rings on or off? On!

    Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and excited all week! 

    Looking forward to: Finding out if this little baby is a boy or girl!! Phil and I have opposite predications which is pretty fun! One of us WILL BE RIGHT!! What do you think it is? Leave your guess in the comment box below!! <3

  • The First Trimester | 13 Week update

    We saw baby today during a sonogram appointment! The last time we saw him/her they were the size of a little bean and did not resemble a baby at all.

    As soon as the ultrasound began, baby was bouncing all over the place. PARTY TIME!  I couldn't believe how much they had grown over the past 6 weeks! It melted my heart to see these little tiny hands flailing all over place and its little body squirming around. Thats our baby!!! I am in absolute love! 

    We even got a hint as to what the gender might be! Nothing confirmed so I wont be revealing that yet! ;)

    Here a couple photos from the sonogram.

    The first trimester wasn't a walk in the park, but it wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. I was basically nauseous all day, especially at night. I didn't throw up, not even once. But there were times I felt like it.

    I developed a love/hate relationship with food. Foods that I once loved (Old Bay, popcorn, tomatoes) made me feel like death. I turned into such a picky eater. Ginger Ale and Tummydrops helped a lot, as well as a TON of water. Recently, the nausea has died down tremendously and I feel somewhat normal again.

    Sleeping went from not being an issue to being super uncomfortable. I got a sleep pillow and all was right in sleep world!

    My clothes are starting to get uncomfortable so I am living in yoga pants, oversized tshirts and hoodies. I bought my first pair of maternity leggings last week and there is no going back. These things are a life saver and I will be able to wear them as I grow.

    We are very eager to get the nursery going so rug, crib and dresser are already in place! Now to find the perfect glider! I plan on sitting in my glider A LOT so it has to be comfy!

    That is pretty much it! BYE first trimester! Thanks for not killing me!
