Well guys, this is getting real! The bump is getting bigger, our sweet baby is growing rapidly, and we’re starting to realize that the next 5-6 months are going to go VERY quickly!
In case you’re wondering WHY I’m taking side pictures with my iPad camera – I put together the below pictures for you.
It is nearly impossible for my husband to take a good picture of me and the bump! Seriously! He just laughs at me, I feel awkward, and then we just start laughing together and the whole thing deteriorates. It’s a sad situation. So for now, I will continue to take iPad side pictures of the bump to document this pregnancy!
I also have been told to journal through the pregnancy, and I’ll tell you a secret. I have probably started 823475 journals in my lifetime, and never stuck with them for more than a few days. It’s a problem. So I figured blogging is kind of like my new “journal”. That I can actually stick with!
So this will continue to be a decorating/DIY/creative living blog, but I will be posting weekly baby updates. If you’re not interested, I’m not offended. It’s more for my sake and for my memories later – like a journal that everyone can see

How far along? 14 weeks
Maternity clothes? Nope – but I’m using a Bella Band around my jeans because it’s uncomfortable to button the top button!
Sleep: Lots of hours awake in the middle of the night lately, which is frustrating for me because I never has issues sleeping.
Best moment of the week: Getting hand-me-down maternity clothes from my awesome S-I-L! Thanks Cherie – I’m excited to wear them!!
Miss anything? I really miss my morning coffee!
Movement: There was a potential “twitch” on & off for a few hours yesterday – can’t wait to feel it again to see if it’s really our baby!
Food cravings: No big cravings this week – still loving citrus though! (Pineapple, oranges, grapefruit…) Hubby is mad – he wants me to get a craving for pizza or “something good” so he can eat it too
Anything making you queasy or sick: When I let myself get too hungry between meals, I feel pretty nauseous. Certain strong smells will bring it on too.
Gender prediction: Boy? I keep calling it “he” and “him”
Labor signs: um, it would be a problem if I’d feel that this early!
Symptoms: At the end of every day, my back is pretty sore. My heating pad is a lifesaver!
Belly button in or out? In
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy! I have my emotional moments, but nothing out of the ordinary right now.
Looking forward to: Thinking about the nursery/registry! It’s a little overwhelming, but I’m trying to do my research!
