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.

The absolute worst part about pregnancy

I've been awake since 2:30 am because Porter barks until you let him out to get water.... Argh!! 
It's now 4:10 am.
Thanks to pregnancy insomnia I can't go back to sleep. I'm seriously considering pouring myself a bowl of Trix and watching X files. I don't think I'm going back to sleep anytime soon. :-/

Anyway. :-)

My weight gain is back under control! I've actually lost weight since that last doctor appointment. Thank God. 

I can feel Ricky move all the time now. :-) 
That's the best part of pregnancy!

I've been waking up to my hands being totally numb. It's so weird. I looked it up and I guess it's a totally common pregnancy symptom, but it could be a sign that you're developing pregnancy induced carpal tunnel syndrome.... Mmmhmmm.

Eddie finally caved and we're moving our bedroom upstairs! Right now our master is downstairs and all the kids' rooms are upstairs on the opposite side of the house. I can't wait! This way we can have Eddie and Ricky in their own rooms instead of in our closet and bed.

I registered at Target, Babies R Us and Amazon! My Mom is throwing me a baby shower end of April. I'm SO excited ;-)
At first I felt weird having one, but then I realized that every baby should be celebrated... & we can always use diapers, wipes & all the things on our registry ;-) 

Did I mention I'm 20 weeks now?! (Almost 21!)
Half way done!! 
This pregnancy is seriously flying by.
I'm starting to feel a little panic over getting things ready. I know I still have tons of time but I'm afraid I'm going to get so busy and just keep putting it off.
Then next thing you know Ricky will be here and I will never have finished his car seat canopy. ;-) 

I'll take pics later of his room that I'm slowly working on. (Thanks to my parents who bought his bedding and a few other things to make his room super cute!)

It's now 4:27 am. :-/ 
I'm going to pour that bowl of Trix.

Mr. Ricky David Raezer (19 weeks)

Meet Ricky David Raezer!!
Today we had our 1/2 way ultrasound. Everything looks great! Ricky is for sure a boy ;) he is also measuring almost one week ahead and his head size is measuring almost 2 weeks ahead.... :-/
Fun times ahead. Lol
I've been feeling him kick a lot more starting yesterday. I love it <3
My weight gain is back under control - yay! I'm feeling really good lately.
Sometimes I feel totally exhausted and other times I feel like I could run for miles. My skin is still SUPER dry. Yuck. 
Anyone have any tips?!
Nothing else really new! Just wanting to start getting everything ready now :)
Going paint shopping at Lowe's in a bit and registered at Target the other day. I'm not sure if I should have another baby shower, or not... Would you?! It would be fun! They're less than two years apart though and we literally have everything that we need (besides diapers!).
Now I'm just rambling....
Anyway :)
Obviously nothing too exciting happening here!

17 weeks :)

I've gained TEN pounds.... :-/ 
I feel awful about it because I know it's not pregnancy related. It's junk food & fast food related :-( wah!

I'm to the point now where none of my "fat" jeans are even fitting me.
It's ok.... I can always lose it again...? :-/


So far still feeling great (physically)!
Mentally is another story...
I have been forgetting EVERYTHING.
It's kind of ridiculous.
I'm having super weird dreams + insomnia + a 15 month old that is now refusing to sleep unless he is pressed up against me = me being a little bitchy. (Just ask Eddie). 

I felt baby move!! 
I know this is mt 3rd time experiencing this, but it's still super magical each time.

I have a dr appointment today and then my 1/2 way ultrasound on 1/17 (yay)!

I can't wait for June to get here! I'm so excited to see what he looks like :) I'm really hoping he's identical to Cinco. <3

Until next time ;-)
