1st Trimester

I am so glad the first trimester is over. It means a lot of things for me:
- Taylor is closer to coming home
- My belly will start looking a little cuter instead of blah
- I am officially out of the red zone for miscarriage
- My aversion to food will hopefully end soon

Two Quotes from my sisters I love:
"Get ready for Survival mode"
"The First Trimester should come with a Private Cook"

Photos from the beginning
Just found out, Four Weeks, and Nine Weeks

This is from today! Finally hitting my second trimester and starting to look more pregnant everyday :)

Just looking at the photo above I'm having one of those, this is actually for real... There is a baby is there! I have been so busy trying to survive each day I sometimes forget the reality of the little guy growing inside me.

How far along are you? 13 weeks

Maternity Clothes? Started wearing one pair of pants around 10 weeks for comfort, by 12 weeks I was miserable in regular pants. I LOVE Maternity Pants!

Sleep: Bathroom Break and Water breaks at least 2 times a night

Best moments: Hearing the heart beat at 6 weeks, Taylor seeing my belly for the first time when I visited him. He insist on talking to the baby whenever I'm in pain and sick!

Missing anything? Mountain Dew, feeling not sick!

Movement? No
I swear I have felt a couple of fluttery things but I am almost positive it's not from baby

Food Cravings: Each week is different
During 7/8 Weeks I loved Ramen
During 9 Weeks I loved Avacado
During 10/11 Weeks I loved Sushi (I ordered cooked of course)
Frosted Flakes has been a staple the whole trimester
I'm almost addicted to dairy it helps sooth my stomach when I feel sick

Queasy or Sick? It never ends! 

Gender Prediction: I want a Girl, Taylor wants a Boy!
I am feeling more and more like it is going to be a boy but Taylor always calls the babe a HE so that might be why too!
{ Cliche I know - We will both be thrilled either way }

Symptoms: My stomach is a pool of acid 24/7
Each week was always different, but I have a really hard time eating most veggies, and I can't cook meat for the life of me. Or really cook anything for that matter.
I had extremely bad pains for the first couple of weeks, they continue but not as bad as in the beginning.
And of course the extreme exhaustion
Sleepless tight just started last week, can't seam to get comfortable lately
And Acne!

Belly Button in or Out? In

Happy or Moody? I try to be Happy, but it has been very hard being sick and living alone

Looking Forward to: Finding out the Gender
Visiting my family in August

Pregnancy Brain

Hopefully most you will find this comical at my expense. 

Fact: Pregnancy Brain really does happen

You have all heard of this happening to women, your blood flow to your brain in literally slowed down due to the effort put into growing your new little peanut. I am living proof pregnancy brain is true, I seam to get flustered so easy and forget things at work all the time now but the worst part is my car keys.

Lost Car Keys #1 - Shopping at Walmart and somehow they fell out of the cart while shopping at 10pm at night. Also my car keys have our ONLY condo key on them. Exhausted, now my keys are gone, I'm holding 5 bags of groceries and I go looking through Walmart. After now luck I finally just sat and waited till someone returned them which they did thank goodness even made it home around 11pm.

Lost Car Keys #2 - I landed this huge interview with Gold's Gym in the Corporate Office which I had been waiting for over a month to get. I walk out the door in high heals and a pencil skirt (walking is obviously harder at this point) get to my car and can't find my keys. They are inside my now locked condo! I call everyone I can think of and everyone is at work, I literally need to leave in 4 minutes or I won't make my interview. I call a random personal in my church that I have never met, sobbing and tell me I need a ride to Orem asap. She loads her three kids in the car comes picks me up and gets me to my job interview only 8 minutes late. Then I paid a cab $45 to take me home afterwards! 
While I was gone my landlord came and unlocked the house which he wasn't able to do quickly enough for me to drive myself.

Needless to say - I am making multiple copies of some keys this week!

Texas + Vegas

Who needs to be home anyway? I have been going from place to place these past couple of weeks. And I have loved it, I cry everytime I have to fly back to Utah. I will feel much different once my husband is living here!

Picnic in the Park
A week ago I was in Texas visiting the Hubby again. I spent a whole 10 days there... a glorious 10 days! That man makes me so happy and there is just nothing that can replace that joy in my life.

We went to some pretty Gardens for a Sunday walk and that is what these two photos are from. I think I am a little over 10 weeks pregnant in the photo below and hiding it rather well :)

Then I went off on a Daddy Daughter trip to Las Vegas! Since I was little I would always have designated Daddy Daughter dates with him, and I felt like I needed one last one before this baby came. I also love spending time with him, he is so care free and he enjoyed ever second of our trip.

This was the view from out hotel! We stayed right on the strip which I haven't done before and it was great.

Below is us at the Celine Dion Show. First of all I used to play he CD on repeat when I was around 10 years old and I loved her! But her show was stunning, amazing, I was almost in tears. It was the one of the greatest show's I have ever seen. She is so down to earth, sexy, funny, brilliant, I just love her!

Not to mention the appearance of my bump this week! Below I am just over 12 weeks along. This dress didn't hide a thing it was fun trying to just rock this new addition.

I love the water show, it never gets old for me.

We went up the Eiffel Tower and got a good view of Las Vegas, not too much to see during the day other then building and desert.

Texas Lovin

Well, these photos aren't the greatest since I forgot the real camera. But let me tell you - Texas was amazing!! We had the best BBQ two nights in a row at different places luckily this was back when meat didn't gross me out. Not to mention how amazing it was to be with my Husband again, reminded me that we really are so great together (the reason we got married)! Were a little crazy for being apart when were so great together. I am going to visit him again very soon. Then in July I might just buy a one way ticket and stay...
