I was on the fence about taking pregnancy photos.  Most pregnancy photos I've seen look like a mix of bad senior glamour photos and awkward pregnancy nakedness.  But part of me knew I might me mad at myself for not documenting this special time in our lives.  So a couple of weeks ago my friends Katie Kester and Nikki Ballard took our pregnancy photos and I'm so glad that they did. Here are a couple of my favorites:

So lately I have gotten a lot of good news.  I haven't had any more blood pressure issues and my doctor thinks I only have about a week or so until Liam is born.  I am 60% effaced and 1 cm dilated.  Also my doctor thinks that once my labor starts, it will go fast.  I couldn't be more excited.  Now I am just waiting. I still need to put some final touches on the nursery, make my playlist for the hospital and finish packing my hospital bag,...

Two weeks ago, I had to go to the doctor's office because my blood pressure was higher than it should be and my ankles were really swollen.  Since both of these are symptoms of pre-eclampsia, my doctor wanted to check and see if my urine contained protein (another sign of pre-eclampsia) which it did not, thank GOD!  Last Wednesday, I had a follow up appointment and once again my blood pressure was higher than it should be.  My doctor calmly told me that he wanted me to go...

I am officially in my 3rd trimester!  A lot has happened since my last baby post.  We have two baby showers planned for March, we registered, we completed our Stork Support class at the hospital, we bought our crib and we have started on the nursery! We decided to go with the Davinci Jenny Lind crib and ordered it from Amazon.  We decided on this crib because it will match the the changing table we were gifted  and the rocking chair my mom found for...

  A couple Saturdays ago, Ben and I were lounging around watching Raiders of the Last Ark when our baby boy started kicking.  Ben got to feel him kick for the first time and it was a really special moment for the three of us.  Ben thinks it is pretty bad ass that it happened during Raiders of the Last Ark.  Since then, he has been kicking and moving non-stop and we love it. Lately I have been feeling great and really enjoying this part of my pregnancy.  Feeling my baby move inside...

Skip ahead a couple of weeks and I'm actually at the half way point!  Oh and we had our ultrasound on the 18th of this month and guess what?  It's a boy!  We are very excited but just to be honest, I was shocked.  I had such strong feelings that it was a girl but he surprised us all.  Since we thought it was a girl, we don't even have a boy name picked out yet.  We have a few that we like, so hopefully we...

I am officially in my 2nd Trimester!  We had a doctor's appointment on Friday and got to hear our little lemon's heartbeat again, which was 148.  Although my doctor said that is doesn't really mean anything, according to old wives tales 148 falls into the girl range.  That is kind of exciting but even more exciting is that on Friday we made our appointment for our sonogram which is next month!  I can't wait to find out what we are having.

Pregnancy Stats Weeks Pregnant:  12 weeks and 6 days Size of my tiny baby:  A Peach  ( Length:  3  in. ) My Weight:  122 lbs.  Total Gain:  7 lbs.  Starting next week, I am going to start weighing myself at the same time of the day which I feel will be more accurate. How am I feeling? Emotionally:  No change really.  I have felt really guilty lately for not getting things done because I would rather be sleeping.  I feel guilty that our Halloween decorations are not up yet and I know that seems silly.  I also feel really guilty that I haven't been posting...

I officially have a baby bump.  Its more noticeable in the evening for whatever reason.  Other than the growing bump, this week hasn't been too exciting.  I have mostly just been tired as usual.

Size of my tiny baby:  A Large Plum  ( Length:  2.5  in.  Weight:  .5 oz.) My Weight:  120 lbs.  Total Gain:  5 lbs.
