A little about me:
I'm 32 & married to the most amazing man, Eddie who is 30. I have a 14 year old daughter from a previous relationship (although Eddie has been her Dad since she was 6). I was 17 when I had her. Eddie and I were married in November 2012 and are now expecting a son in October 2014! We had a bit of a journey for one year trying to conceive our son - I'm sure that someday I will share all of our trials, but for now I'm just going to bask in the joy that we are able to have a child!
It has been 14 years since I have experienced pregnancy and raising a baby so it kind of feels like the first time all over again.

21 weeks: 19 to go!
I really started showing this week - I think that other people can finally see it too and Eddie said that he noticed when I got out of the car yesterday at Boston's Pizza.
Also, last week sometime Eddie was able to feel a kick from Cinco while I was laying in bed.
I think the reality of this pregnancy is really setting in for both of us. I am feeling the need to start buying stuff now; like this past week I haven't been able to stop thinking about buying a diaper bag and filling it with stuff for the hospital.
Here I am yesterday at 21 weeks + 2 days:
I was feeling really fat yesterday, so no close ups this week. ;-)
Not weighing myself until my next Dr appt on 6/16.
I haven't been that consistent with anything except for walking. Something is better than nothing :)
Great! My emotions have been pretty good except that I feel SUPER fat. The hardest part is noticing so many super skinny pregnant women. I have to work on not comparing myself to other pregnant women. Everyone is different :o)
Yesterday I was feeling so fat I almost went and bought a whole new wardrobe. I also ate some ice cream....
Today I woke up and feel great. I'm blaming this on hormones :)
Still the usual plus anything full of flavor. My heart burn is out of control - I feel like I get it from everything, even water. Tums are my new BFF :)
I have never liked BBQ sauce in my life but today I am making BBQ pulled pork sandwiches because it sounds SO good.
Becoming more frequent and stronger. Every night around 8:30 - 9:00 he usually kicks a lot, and first thing in the morning.
