14 Weeks

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
HOW FAR: 14 Weeks 2 days
BABY IS THE SIZE OF A: Lemon
MATERNITY CLOTHES: No. Long story! :(
SLEEP: Sleeping good for the most part. 
MOVEMENT: Again, I feel like I've been feeling flutters, but it could just be my stomach growling.
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Visiting Baby Gap with my mom. I didn't buy anything, but it was fun to look around. The Christmas onesies got me soooo excited for future holidays with the babe!!!! I'll have to stock up on some for next year.
WORST MOMENT THIS WEEK: Just being worried all the dang time. I know I need to STOP, but maybe someone who has been through miscarriages can relate. It sucks the excitement right outta me!  
GENDER PREDICTION: Still predicting boy!
MISS ANYTHING: Being able to take some Ibuprofen. Tylenol doesn't do crap for my headaches. And when will I get my appetite back? I sure hope it comes back before THANKSGIVING!! :p
FOOD CRAVINGS: Fresh food.. I could totally go for a salad, a fruit tray and a veggie platter with ranch dip every night. On a non-healthy note: I've been loving me some Kool-Aid!! My cousin's daughter has me addicted to the Black Cherry flavor. Thanks Madi! ;)
ANYTHING MAKE YOU QUEASY: Meat! 
AM I SHOWING: I think so. I can't wait to get bigger though. Right now it looks like I've had one too many fun size snickers. 
SYMPTOMS: DRY SKIN!!!! I normally have very oily skin, so I have NO idea how to deal with dry skin. I took a trip to Ulta and they recommended a 3-Step exfoliator. It's been working so far, but I'm not sure if I love it just yet. I have also been getting a headache every. single. night! Last night it got so bad I threw up my dinner and then went straight to bed because the lights were too much. Also, I'm still cramping and spotting every time I walk around or take trips in the car, my lower back has been hurting and I still get sick. Loving every minute of it though!!
STRETCH MARKS: Not yet.
HAPPY OR MOODY: Happy. So excited to see Robby this upcoming week.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Our next appointment. She MIGHT be able to tell us the sex :)

13 Weeks


HOW FAR: 13 Weeks! HELLOOOO SECOND TRIMESTER!!!!!
BABY IS THE SIZE OF A: Peach (yum!)
MATERNITY CLOTHES: No, not yet! I'm planning on getting some maternity leggings this week though. Finally, right?
SLEEP: Good for the most part. So far I've had a dream every single night. So vivid and they have nothing to do with babies or pregnancy. More like centipedes trying to attack my bunny and waiting in line at the bank. The teller told me I needed to deposit the money, withdraw it, and then deposit it again. WHAT!! Crazy dreams I tell ya!
MOVEMENT: I'm pretty sure I've been feeling flutters. Kind of hard to tell though. 
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Going to my ultrasound today!! The heartbeat was 154 :)
WORST MOMENT THIS WEEK: Probably the bleeding and cramping. I drive.. I cramp! I walk around a store.. I cramp! The doctor said the placenta is kind of close to the cervix, so that's probably why I'm still bleeding, but they are going to keep an eye on it.
GENDER PREDICTION: Boy!
MISS ANYTHING: Deli meat and beef! I'm a meat lover. And so far I've been analyzing and dissecting it. Can't stand the texture in my mouth! :( 
FOOD CRAVINGS: Fruit (I've been wanting pineapple this week), cereal, and pina colada yogurt. Anything sweet!
ANYTHING MAKE YOU QUEASY: Meat! 
AM I SHOWING: Yea! The belly is growing that's for sure. 
SYMPTOMS: Same as before.. Out of breath, nausea (three times a day at the most), some back pain, cramping, bleeding, headaches, weird dreams.
STRETCH MARKS: Nope! I got to buy some cream. I've been slacking because of the cramping.
HAPPY OR MOODY: Happy. Moody when I cramp or when I'm hungry.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Finding out the sex!!!!

12 Weeks


HOW FAR: 12 weeks. Almost done with the first trimester! Yay!
BABY IS THE SIZE OF A: Plum
MATERNITY CLOTHES: No! I need to get some maternity leggings. I also need some cute/comfortable maternity bras. Any suggestions?
SLEEP: I'm tossing and turning. I woke up at 2:30 in the morning the other night because I was sooo thirsty and ended up hugging the toilet a minute later :/
MOVEMENT: I'm pretty sure I felt some flutters, but I might be confusing it with gas..?? haha.
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Feeling flutters. If that even was flutters!
WORST MOMENT THIS WEEK: I'm constantly worried about the baby. My past pregnancy experiences have kind of ruined things for me.
GENDER PREDICTION: Robby and I are both thinking boy.
MISS ANYTHING: Having an appetite. Out of ALL the symptoms, I would have to say that one is by far the worst. Being starving but never knowing what you want to eat because NOTHING really sounds good. Doesn't make sense at all.. I know! I don't get it either!
FOOD CRAVINGS: Fruit, Salads with Italian dressing, chocolate chip cookies.
ANYTHING MAKE YOU QUEASY: Water! And meat. 
AM I SHOWING: Just a little. 
SYMPTOMS: Out of breath, nausea when I have an empty stomach, some back pain, cramping from SCH, headaches, weird dreams.
STRETCH MARKS: Nope! And I hope it stays that way ;)
HAPPY OR MOODY: Kind of moody.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: My appointment next week!!!!!!

COMING IN APRIL


Robby and I feel so extremely blessed. I thank my Heavenly Father each and every day for this little miracle growing inside of me.
Baby Magee is due April 29th 2015!! :)

It has taken us 4 years and 7 months to get here!! I've had two miscarriages, 4 IUI's, a cyst removed off my left ovary and have had so many other procedures and testing done. I would really love to post a video of what helped us get pregnant this time because I know many suffer with infertility. I want to help!
 
HOW FAR: 11 weeks! I'm still a little scared to be sharing the big news due to my past experiences, but I figured if something were to happen, I would get tons of love and support from family and friends. Enough of that though. I'm staying positive and putting my trust in God. 
BABY IS THE SIZE OF: A lime.
MATERNITY CLOTHES: Nope! Not yet. I may have to stop at the Gap to get a couple maternity leggings. 
SLEEP: Sleeping well minus the crazy dreams and several trips to the bathroom. 
MOVEMENT: I can't feel anything yet but I went in today for an ultrasound and the baby was moving around like crazy (baby was probably hungry) and had a heartbeat of 164. 
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Seeing the heartbeat and the baby moving after Monday's scare. See below. 
WORST MOMENT THIS WEEK: Monday morning I started to spot and didn't have much time to think about it because I had to take Robby to the airport. When I got home from dropping him off, I started to bleed a TON!!!!! I've never seen so much blood before in my life. The toilet was full of blood and I had some blood clots coming out. I started crying and was extremely depressed because I thought I was miscarrying again. I also didn't have my husband there with me so that didn't help the situation either. I called the doctor and went in with my mom and dad to check things out. As I was sitting in the waiting room a couple came out to look at their sonogram pictures which broke my heart. I had to look away. They called me in and I basically told the ultrasound tech that it was going to be bad news. She started the ultrasound process and I immediately saw a little heart beating and then the baby started moving around like crazy (again, baby was probably hungry). We were ALL IN SHOCK!!!! I had a subchorionic hemorrhage. Scariest. Thing. Ever. I'm still bleeding just a little bit, but today's ultrasound showed the hemorrhage is getting smaller. Phew!
GENDER PREDICTION: Wish I had some motherly intuition as to what the sex may be.. but I don't. I'm guessing boy?
MISS ANYTHING: Besides my husband haha.. Deli meat! I can so go for a Jersey Mike's sub right about now. I also can't wait to get my appetite back.
FOOD CRAVINGS: Strawberry and Banana Orange Julius, Slurpees from 7/11, Fruit.. Mostly Watermelon and strawberries. I also crave sides. Just think of all the Thanksgiving dinner sides.. Yup!! I crave all that. Oh.. and french fries.
ANYTHING MAKE YOU QUEASY: Meat! I can eat chicken sometimes though. 
AM I SHOWING: A little? There's fluff on top of baby so it's hard to tell haha. 
SYMPTOMS: No energy, nausea, some back pain, light cramping from SCH, heighten sense of smell, headaches and I don't care if this isn't a legit symptom (I say it is) but I've been having some major pregnancy brain. 
STRETCH MARKS: Nope! I need to buy some stretch mark cream asap though. 
HAPPY OR MOODY: Happy! Moody when I'm hungry. But that's how I am when I'm not pregnant.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: My next appointment in two weeks to check on the hemorrhage and to see baby of course. I also can't wait to get a bigger bump and finding out the gender!!! 
Baby Magee on Monday 10/6/14
10w5d
I love that the baby is crossing his/her feet. Can you see the little fingers? And brain?
