17 Mile House Farm Park









My mom was so sweet to take time out of her busy Saturday to snap some pictures of Robby and I over at 17 Mile House Farm Park for our Christmas pictures. I ordered our Christmas pictures last night, but didn't end up using any of the pictures we took. Robby's eyes were watering a lot from the sun and my hair........ my hair is in need of some dye. When is it okay for pregnant women to dye their hair?! Even though we didn't end up using any of these for Christmas cards, I still wanted to post them more for my memory. This is the only journal I have after all.
Thanks a bunch mom for taking them. 
You're the best!

18 Weeks


HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVE!!!
HOW FAR: 18 Weeks
BABY IS THE SIZE OF A: Sweet Potato 
MATERNITY CLOTHES: Still wearing regular clothes and my maternity leggings.
SLEEP: Sleeping good. I have had pillows surrounding me which helps, but I should be getting my bump nest pillow today. The things pregnant women get excited for.. ;)
MOVEMENT: Feeling movement more each day. 
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: I had a dream the other night we went to another 3D ultrasound. Baby girl was bigger and had more baby fat on her. She had the most kissable, fullest lips I have ever seen. My brother said in the dream, "looks like she won't ever need lip injections!" haha.. Don't ask! My dreams are out there, but I LOVED it!
WORST MOMENT THIS WEEK: Still missing my dog. We got her paw print yesterday and my brother found a couple pieces of her hair baked into the clay :(
GENDER: Girl!!!
MISS ANYTHING: Still Pepsi.
FOOD CRAVINGS: Haven't really been craving anything specific. I just love food in general right now.
ANYTHING MAKE YOU QUEASY: No. 
AM I SHOWING: Yes, and I love it! 
SYMPTOMS: I got sick 7 TIMES the other day. I was ready to grab my blanket and pillow and lay on the bathroom floor. Also, my boobs have been hurting again and my lower back has been killing me.  
STRETCH MARKS: No! Robby did scare me a couple weeks ago because he said "oh you have a stretch mark already." I was like "noooo... it's from my clothes. Right? Oh gosh, Robby it better not be." Yesterday I was dressing and he saw my stomach and said, "I guess that wasn't a stretch mark!" Maybe I should add salt to his pecan pie instead of sugar.. ;) hahaha jk. 
HAPPY OR MOODY: My emotions have been all over. Happy, sad, worried, moody, happy again, sad again, worried again.. I'm sure you get it!
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Stuffing my face tomorrow!!! Being pregnant around this time is SO much fun. I am also looking forward to decorating the nursery. I have some ideas and items saved on my iPad.. :)

17 Weeks


HOW FAR: 17 Weeks 2 Days
BABY IS THE SIZE OF A: Turnip (whatever that is!)
MATERNITY CLOTHES: Just leggings 
SLEEP: Haven't been sleeping well this week. I did purchase this pregnancy pillow with the Dottie pillow case. Can't wait to get it!
MOVEMENT: Feeling more movement in the morning when my stomach is empty.
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Finding out baby Magee is a GIRL!!! That appointment was so fun and he checked the sex twice for us just to make sure.
WORST MOMENT THIS WEEK: Our family dog of 13 years passed away the day we found out the gender (11/18/14). We went to my parents with a bag full of baby gap clothes so they could open it to find out the gender that way. My mom opened the bag and they all found out the babes was a girl, but afterwards my dad informed us about Kiddie and how she couldn't get up. Long story short, we took her to the vet and the doc said she had a tumor which she was 70% sure was cancer and also said she was bleeding internally. I freaking miss my dog so much! We've had her since I was in my teens. Wish I could give her one more hug and kiss :(
GENDER: GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MISS ANYTHING: Pepsi!
FOOD CRAVINGS: Haven't really been craving much. I have been eating a lot of Italian food and could eat a salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
ANYTHING MAKE YOU QUEASY: Nope!  
AM I SHOWING: Yea. 
SYMPTOMS: I've been feeling pretty good. I have been getting tired during the day again and my back has been hurting a lot more. I'm also feeling a little crampy as I type this.. probably the uterus stretching..? 
STRETCH MARKS: Nope! I did buy some Burt's Bees belly butter and Mama Bee Nourishing Body Oil.
HAPPY OR MOODY: Happy but have moments when I cry like a baby. I miss my dog.. :(
LOOKING FORWARD TO: My cousin coming out to visit with her little family and THANKSGIVING!!!!!! I can't wait to get my grub on.. :p

16 Weeks

We are finding out the sex next week, so I thought it would be fun to add the good ol' gender predictions to the blog. I don't believe any of this but thought it would be fun.
 Baby's heartbeat: ABOVE or BELOW 140? 
Headaches: MORE or LESS
Mood: MOODY or HAPPY
Cravings: SWEET or SALTY
Sleeping on: LEFT or RIGHT
Skin: SOFT or DRY
Morning Sickness: YES or NO
Cravings: FRUIT or MEAT/CHEESE
Feet temperature: COLD or SAME
Heartburn: YES or NO?
Spoon & Fork test: SPOON or FORK?
Chinese Calendar: GIRL
Baking soda test: GIRL
Clumsy: MORE or LESS?
Wedding Ring: BOY
 Mayan Calendar: Two ways online..

1.) Add your age at conception and the year you conceived. 
Odd numbers are boys, even numbers are girls.
3+1+2+0+1+4= 11= BOY

2.) Take the mother's age at conception and the year of conception. If both are even or both are odd, it's a girl. If one is even and one is odd it's a boy. 
31/2014= BOY (one odd, one even)
My doctor leaning towards: BOY
Ultrasound tech leaning towards: GIRL
Mommy thinks: BOY
Daddy thinks: BOY
GIRL: 9
BOY: 12

HOW FAR: 16 Weeks
BABY IS THE SIZE OF A: Avocado (YUMMY!)
MATERNITY CLOTHES: Bought some leggings at Target, but I'm going to get a couple more from the gap. 
SLEEP: Sleeping great! 
MOVEMENT: Feeling a little movement. Especially when I'm hungry!
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Seeing the baby at our last ultrasound. She was trying to figure out the gender for us, but the babes was being stubborn. Already giving us attitude ;) We were going to wait to find out the sex until our 20 week appointment, but Robby won't be here.. so I made an appointment to get a 3D/4D ultrasound on Tuesday November 18th. I CAN'T WAIT to find out the sex! We will reveal the sex to our family on Thanksgiving day. Hopefully I can keep my mouth zipped.
WORST MOMENT THIS WEEK: Again, has nothing to do with the baby, but we had to drop off our Rubicon to get the hail damage fixed. I'm really missing our Jeep. Especially in this snow!
GENDER PREDICTION: I'm still saying boy but I really don't have a clue guys. I feel horrible for not having a feeling like some moms do, but this babe has been tricking us. I really don't care either way! I've been waiting way too long for this baby to come to be picky about the sex.
MISS ANYTHING: I miss bacon, deli meat and hot dogs.
FOOD CRAVINGS: I could go for a Chipotle burrito and some chips and queso dip right about now.. and a Pepsi! :p 
ANYTHING MAKE YOU QUEASY: Not really. I still get sick in the morning when my stomach is empty. It's kind of hard because I have to wait 30 minutes or so to eat because of my thyroid medicine.    
AM I SHOWING: YES!! 
SYMPTOMS: Still getting a little nauseous. I also get headaches and my lower back has been hurting.
STRETCH MARKS: No! I bought some cream but I'm going to research others online because I can't stand the smell of the one I bought.
HAPPY OR MOODY: HAPPY.. and still emotional! I cried watching Sadie Robertson perform during Monday's DWTS. 
LOOKING FORWARD TO: FINDING OUT THE SEX!!! I'm also excited to start decorating the nursery and buying clothes. If we have a boy, I know exactly how I want to decorate the nursery, but I'm still a little clueless how I would decorate a girl nursery. You would think a girl nursery would be easier!

15 Weeks


HOW FAR: 15 Weeks 2 days
BABY IS THE SIZE OF A: Navel Orange
MATERNITY CLOTHES: No! I went looking for some leggings today, but the store was out of my size. Go figure! I'm just going to order some online.
SLEEP: Sleeping good minus the trips to the bathroom and being extremely thirsty. Which then equals to me having to pee some more! 
MOVEMENT: Feeling a little movement here and there, but then freak when I don't feel anything. 
BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: Picking up Robby from the airport!! :)
WORST MOMENT THIS WEEK: Has nothing to do with baby Magee, but I've been giving Radd (my bunny) medicine twice a day and he HATES IT! He kicks his feet at me afterwards which makes me want to cry. I feel so bad but it's for his own good.. little booger! 
GENDER PREDICTION: I'm still guessing boy. We MIGHT find out Monday! :)
MISS ANYTHING: Having energy. Or the little bit of energy I DID have at least.
FOOD CRAVINGS: This week it has been frosted flakes with sliced bananas & cuties.
ANYTHING MAKE YOU QUEASY: I still don't care for beef. 
AM I SHOWING: Yes! And I LOVE it.
SYMPTOMS: I thought I was over being nauseous (I didn't get sick for two days), but got sick three times yesterday. I also get headaches almost every single day.
STRETCH MARKS: Nope!
HAPPY OR MOODY: Happy. I am starting to get emotional again. I cried yesterday leaving my parents house, I cried tonight because I was hungry and I cried because I was missing Radd. 
LOOKING FORWARD TO: MONDAY!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE BABES.
