Girl Named 16 Weeks

We found out we're having a ...GIRL! Oh my gosh, 3 girls! Our house is going to be so full of drama. As a friend pointed out, at one point we'll have girls that are 18, 16 and 13. I will be heavily drinking at that point. We are very excited though, as long as she's healthy! We will go for the 20 week ultrasound in a few weeks (this one was an elective early gender ultrasound) but we did get to see her moving a lot, she waved at us, so that was cool! Here she is waving!

We had a good weekend; Friday we got to eat dinner at Nakato with a good friend that just had a baby, Saturday Pete and I went to KC for The Chive night at Kauffman and saw a Royals game, and it was nice to spend time together alone. Sunday he left for a conference in Virginia, so we are excited for him to get home! 

The Belly: It seems like it's about the same size as last week. Still bigger than normal, but not big enough for me to look pregnant - just fat. 

Food: I've been eating pretty normal, still love nachos and queso! Still not a fan of sweet things.

Baby: The size of an avocado! 

Feeling: This is a rough one. We all came down with colds Saturday, so I have been feeling really bad. Can't sleep much because of the congestion, and can't really take anything that works! I haven't been too nauseous though, so that's good! A good friend was very nice and took the girls to the park for 4 hours Sunday, so I got a good nap and some housework done!

Activity: Another rough one. I walked a lot at the game, but Sunday night Claire jumped on my (broken) foot and this morning I couldn't walk on it at all, and it was swollen again. I'm going back to the dr in the morning so he can look at it. Ugh. I'm starting to feel like I'll be in this boot forever, and I'll never be able to run again! I'm SO tired of it.

Girl Named 15 Weeks

This has been a better week - found out the culture on my UTI came back negative, so I got to stop taking the nasty antibiotics! We went to Steam-O-Rama Saturday, and it was beautiful outside! The girls had fun eating corn dogs and riding the little train around. It was a lot of walking though, and my foot was pretty sore that night! Then we went to a friends house for dinner and the girls played with their kids and we had a lot of fun!

We find out what we're having on Wednesday, we're having the 15 week 3D ultrasound (although I'm still skeptical they can give me an accurate reading this early), so I'm nervous and excited! I'll update you next week on what it is! Think boy thoughts...

The Belly: Getting bigger, I'm now having people I haven't told "wondering" but are afraid to ask, so that means it looks more pregnant and less fat. I pretty much have 3 dress shirts (that fit properly) to wear to work right now, so I'm going to have to go get a couple more! (Don't tell my husband)

Food: Still love love love Mexican food - queso, chips, burritos, nachos, etc. Still don't really want sweet things, everything sweet tastes exaggeratedly sweet right now, and I don't like it! I do love pickles too. 

Baby: Fittingly, baby is the size of an avocado, and I love guacamole! 

Feeling: I am feeling better every day I think, but I'm still tired and get tired easily. I still need my nap every Saturday and Sunday (and my husband will be out of town coming up, and I'm dreading not getting my nap in!) I haven't been nearly as nauseous, the feeling comes and goes sometimes, but I don't have to eat first thing in the morning anymore.

Activity: With the broken foot, walking around at Steam-O-Rama is about as much activity as I can handle right now, I didn't even have it in me to go to Walmart this weekend. 3 more weeks in the boot!

Girl Named 14 Weeks

Another week already?! This week was CRAZY, and I'm glad it's over. On Tuesday I went for a run, and I got off the road to let two cars pass, stepped on a rock, and fractured my foot. I had to go to Memphis Wednesday and Thursday for a meeting, so by the time I got back on Friday I had to go to the dr because I couldn't walk on it or sleep! Now I'm wearing a boot for 4-6 weeks, which is awesome. Being pregnant and having a broken foot is the best. On top of that, I went to my OB appointment Friday, and I have a UTI, so I'm on antibiotics for that, and I HATE antibiotics. I hate the side effects, and I don't want to take them. So this weekend I was a miserable person! 

The baby's heartbeat was still 180, which seems super fast to me! I don't remember the girls' heartbeats ever being that fast, so I don't know what to think! 10 days until we find out if it's a girl or a boy!

The Belly: I'd say it's roughly the same size this week, although I'm starting to feel less bloated, which is good!

Food: Still on a Mexican kick - nachos, chips, queso, tacos... anything salty!

Baby: The size of a lemon now!

Feeling: Well, up until I broke my foot and started antibiotics, I was actually feeling a lot better! I'm hoping once I finish the meds I will get back to "normal". 

Activity: Well...I tried to run once, and that didn't work out so well. So now, NO activity for at least 4 weeks, but once the dr clears me he said I can do swimming, water aerobics, and other low impact activities.

Girl Named 13 Weeks

I'm a couple days late, but I'm 13 weeks! Last week was crazy with Labor Day weekend, so I'm just now getting everything together. I'm pretty excited because I scheduled a 3D ultrasound, so we're finding out what we're having a whole 5 WEEKS earlier! September 18th is the day, and I can't wait! Please send me "boy" thoughts! ;) 

We didn't do a whole lot over the long weekend, I had 4 days off and it was spectacular. We hung out with the girls, went to the pool, ate at our favorite restaurants, etc. It was very relaxing, but went by way too fast!

The Belly: It's getting bigger, I'm hoping it will fill with baby soon. I ate lunch with a friend today and she said "You're finally starting to look pregnant!" which is awesome, since I've definitely felt pregnant!

Food: I LOVE mexican food. Taco pizza, queso, rotel dip, burritos, tacos, you name it. My husband laughed at me because we had queso for lunch yesterday at Mexican Villa, then I made rotel dip for dinner. 

Baby: Is the size of a pea pod! Which to me, seems smaller than a lemon, but who's comparing. 

Feeling: I've been feeling better every day, I've gone 3 whole days without taking the Zofran, so that's pretty exciting! I have a little more energy, although I took a nap every day this weekend. But...I may have done that even if I wasn't pregnant.

Activity: I've went for a couple walk/runs, but hurt my foot on the last one so I may take a few days off! I'm just happy to have the energy to walk or run again!
