11 Weeks

Okay, I'm ready to start with the weekly bump pictures and updates! My new weeks start on Tuesdays, so hopefully I can get in the routine of doing baby updates on that day.

11 Weeks

Weight Gain: Up 2 pounds so far. I've been really sick and I've still managed to gain weight... so you can just imagaine the quality of food that I've been stuffing my face with. Thank goodness I am starting this pregnancy exactly 30lbs lighter than I did with Hunter.

Stretch Marks: Just my ones from Hunter. Please Lord, do not give me any new ones!

Movement: Lol, not besides gas. ;/

Cravings: Anything spicy, lime popcicles, and fruit.

Sleep: SO SO SO good! Seriously, I haven't slept harder since before Hunter was born. Poor Jesse takes out the pup around 4am every morning and I am dead to the world.

Best Moment this Week: Last Thursday I actually had a good day, well until the evening. I had a burst of energy and spent the whole morning/afternoon making homemade cupcakes and deep cleaning the kitchen. Felt so good to be productive.

Gender: Not a clue. I go back and forth between desperately wanting another boy and thinking it would be so fun to have a little girl. Eh, so I'm pretty indifferent.

Labor signs: Nope

What I miss: Not throwing up almost everyday and being so extremly tired 99% of the time

What I'm looking forward to: Excited to hear the heart beat at my doctor appointment on Thursday! We saw the heartbeat in an early ultrasound, but I'm super excited to hear it! I hope I don't forget to record it.

Weekly wisdom: Morning sickness is a pretty sure sign that your baby is doing awesome.

Milestones: Ehhh, I'm at a loss for this one.

Baby bumps from week 8, 10 and 11. I think it may have shrunk a little this week.

Sometimes I get a kick out of seeing what people did a google search for the come across this blog of mine. Today was not exception.

"naked picture stephanie doyle" Really?! Come on. I guess I was a bit flattered and then realized that either one, they were looking for a different Stephanie Doyle or it was my husband being silly knowing it would pop up for me to see. I'll have to ask him about that!

"woman like hookah" This really made me giggle. I did post one picture of me in Turkey this summer with a hookah and I do enjoy it. But never would I think such a search would lead to me!

Well, that is all, a bit random, but I was rather amused.

Girl's Night

On Saturday, I went to my first PNW Blogger's get together. I have to admit, I was a little anxious to meet up with a bunch of ladies whom all but two of them, I had never met in real life. A handful of them, I felt like I already knew them from following their blogs, so that was a bit helpful.

But anyways, we met up for dinner at Z'tejas in Bellevue Square where we talked loudly and talked about inappropiate things. And then like a group of high school girls, we swarmed through the mall for some frozen yogurt. Unfortunately, while all the other ladies were getting dessert, I was in the bathroom sick, dang this first trimester! But I regrouped and joined up with them for some picture taking and some wandering around the mall.

It was so nice to meet such a great group of women who were so easy to relate to!! I hope we can do it again soon.

Amanda, Jill, Chelsey, Fiona, Chelsea, Melissa, Mandy, Amy, Ashley, Mandy, Emily, me, and Kiara.

Thank You!!!

I just wanted to say thank you for all the congrats and well wishes about being pregnant I have received! I really feel like this blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram has connected me with some amazing ladies and has grown into such a great community to connect with other moms in! So... THANK YOU!

Speaking of that great community, I am so super excited to be going to my first blogger's night out with about a dozen or so other local bloggers. It's tonight and I can't wait to meet so many of the faces that I've come to know through social networking! I'll be sure to share some pics and the details afterwards! :)

I know I still have a bit MIA in blogland. I promise you, I have a good reason. This pregnancy has made me so very sick. I feel extremely tired 90% of the time, nausous most of the day, and throwing up everyday as well. BUT... the good news about that is that means my body is doing what it needs to, to grow a healthy baby! Totally worth it, but in the meantime I have been pretty worthless. I've been neglecting housework, seeing friends and family, blogging, and lots more. What I have gotten really good at is playing Monopoly on the iPhone app. Hee-hee.

Big News!

I just can't hold it in any longer...we are going to be adding another addition to our family in September! We are beyond excited and can't wait to have a family of four... or six if you count the dogs. ;)

We got to see the heartbeat last week during an early ultrasound. Nothing like seeing that you are growing a little human! :)

Here is my first baby bump pic @ 8w4d. Beware, there will be weekly updates! :)

Beautiful Weather

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, than you already now how beautiful the weather has been here in the last several days. I'm loving the sunny mid 50's that February has brought to us!

It allowed Hunter to get some much needed outdoor time.

Here are a couple pictures from yesterday.

My Glamorous Life

Like seriously, it's a super fancy life I live these days. I don't like to leave the house. I'm going through one of those moods. I haven't been feeling too hot and dealing with the transition between super busy working mom with not enough hours in the day and being a stay at home momma to a two year old.

Having this puppy doesn't help much either. She's too little to leave in the back yard while we are gone and I feel bad putting her in her kennel for more than an hour or two. So that leaves me to stay at home.

Can I just tell you about how much poop and pee I'm dealing with in this house between Hunter potty training and a nine week old puppy?! I seriously am over it. If it's not puppy poop, or Hunter pee, than it's Hunter finding puppy poop before I do, picking it up and then trying to rub it off his hands onto his legs. Yes, true story, it's happened twice in the last two days. So yeah, I'm seriously up the my eyeballs in poop, really. Don't worry, I didn't take any pictures to share these precious moments with you all.

Oh yeah, wanna hear another funny-gross-sad story? Hunter was running around naked before bedtime the other night and playing with Lucy, the puppy. All of a sudden he is crying and running to me to be held. I asked him if Lucy bit him, he says "Yes, Lucy bite my penis!" And then proceeded to tell me that he needed mommy to kiss it. No, sir. Kids and puppies are quite the combo, let me tell ya!

Okay anyways, I don't like to write with out leaving you a picture, don't worry, some cute ones, not ones of poop or bitten toddler parts!

Jesse is active duty Air Force and is originally from southern Minnesota. He has also managed to become a follower of just about every hobby known to man (which drives his wife crazy!).

Henry was born on July 4, 2007. His hobbies include playing with his squeaker toys, barking a little girls, dock jumping, going to the dog park, and being spoiled rotten by his grandparents.
