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.

Tiniest little baby bump at 11 weeks!
Plus my little cinco man couldn't be left out of the picture . ;)
This last week was rough!
Started off with cinco getting the flu and puking every twenty minutes all night long. :( (so sad!) then cinco was FINALLY diagnosed with restrictive airway disease (asthma pretty much). It's the same thing Kaina had at this age. After two months of him wheezing and sick we finally got him on medicine to help clear it up. Although he finished his meds yesterday and he's still not better :-/
Saturday our whole family was hit with the flu. It was awful!! It's Wednesday and were all starting to feel a little better.
I bought a fetal heart monitor! It's really cool! Now I can hear the heartbeat whenever I want :)
At 10 weeks I got the Counsyl test done to check for genetic abnormalities and gender. Got the results back yesterday!! Baby is totally healthy and cleared of any abnormalities!
And it's a....
You have to wait to find out ;-)
We know, but we're not telling....yet!
I've been feeling pretty good aside from having the flu.
Some days I think my energy is coming back and then, nope! I'm still feeling super tired. That could also be from the flu though.
I've gained 4 pounds in under two months. :/ that has a lot to do with being on 21 day fix and then eating whatever the heck I want for the last 2 months. Lol
It's been rough ;-)
Ps I'm so excited for thanksgiving tomorrow!!!!
(&& that moment you realize that orange is the new black will have a new season released right at the same time you have a newborn! So excited for nonstop nursing + late night tv watching) :D
I'm craving banana Popsicles and meat. It's a weird combo for sure.....
Nothing else exciting happening now.....
Oh! I am starting to have spider veins pop up again. Yay.
Until next time!

Last week was...eventful.
More cramping and contraction type feelings. I looked it up and both are totally normal. I'm thinking it's because this is my third pregnancy? So far nothing has been like the other two. I have zero symptoms the majority of the time and then out of nowhere I'll get hit with a wave of emotions. Or my boobs will randomly hurt. I keep getting dizzy and that is actually making me excited! I was so dizzy the entire time I was pregnant with Kaina, so I'm thinking its a good sign. I'm also pretty tired the majority of the time.
Probably tmi but I can't stay too far away from toilet. This scares me because that's how I felt when I miscarried last month.
I have to keep telling myself: different baby, different pregnancy & different outcome.
We just want this little bean SOO bad!!
I keep feeling like everything will be ok. I just hope those feelings are right.
My dr said I can come get an early ultrasound. I declined it earlier, but I think that I'm going to take him up on it now.
I also might switch doctors. I felt so dismissed by my Drs nurses and I hate that I'm afraid to call if I have a concern. I really do like my doctor but I also want someone who's more proactive.... I don't know. I'll figure it out later :)
I'm waiting outside work right now. I start in 11 minutes. All I want to do is recline my seat and take a nap. Lol
Do you think they'd notice if I didn't show up? ;-)
We went out to breakfast this morning and I got so full that now I feel like I could sleep FOREVER! Zzz....
Alright. Have a great week!
(I'll edit this if I do go on for an ultrasound)
10 weeks today!
This week I'm going in for free cell DNA testing. It's a super cool blood test! Basically the babies skin cells flake off into my bloodstream so the dr is able to test for genetic abnormalities (& gender!) in a very noninvasive way. How cool is that?!
I'm feeling super normal. I'm just tired and craving crap food (oh joy).
Every time I talk about this baby I want to say she, or her. I'm thinking its a girl, but we'll see soon enough 😋
I've also gained 4 pounds since I found out I was pregnant 6 weeks ago. Agh! I need to calm down on the junk food. It's hard when I haven't been able to stop thinking about donuts since I woke up at 6. :-/
Oh yeah! I also have insomnia again. Awesome.
It's all worth it for this little love!
Feeling so overjoyed <3
