13 Weeks

Baby is the size of a peach!!

How Far Along:  13 weeks today!

Total Weight Gain/ Loss: up 2 pounds pre-pregnancy.  I think that is pretty good so far. I am really trying to make healthier choices and eat about 5 to 6 small meals a day.  since I started out being over weight I would really like to just gain baby weight if possible.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, I had to start wearing them at about 10 weeks since I just didn't feel comfortable in any of my clothes anymore.  I can still wear most of my tops and dress pants with a belly band.  My step mom has been very generous in helping me expand my maternity wardrobe since I am so cheap and don't want to spend money on them.
I bought this one and this one

Stretch Marks: a little bit on my boob-age area I noticed, but those suckers I swear grew a size over night and I caught it a little late.  None around the baby belly area yet though.  I have started to use Mustella Cream at night though.  I  found some at Target for only $27.00 so I snapped it up.  My family is genetically prone to stretch marks though so I'm sure I'm doomed anyways but I'd like to prevent if possible.

Symptoms:  Finaallly I have some energy!  These last 10 weeks have been horrific for my energy levels.  Still get very queasy at the site of eggs and the smell of my fur-babies when they come in from outside.  I have my fabreeze plugs running in every corner of the house now to help combat the dogie smells.

Sleep: I've been sleeping pretty good.  I got a kick of insomnia a few nights ago and was up for about 2 hours straight just playing on pinterest.  And for the most part I wake up once or twice to pee and then I knock back out pretty easily.

Best Moment of the Week:  Nothing too exciting on the baby front.  We just have been anxiously waiting for our house to be done.  We finally have electric and running water... so that some great news!!  I also went dress shopping for my cousins wedding yesterday and found two great maternity dresses at Motherhood by Jessica Simpson I plan to wear.  I actually feel pretty and pregnant to fat and ugly so that's a start too.

Miss Anything: Nothing too terrible, but I did have a dream that I was in a bar about to take a shot and then I realized I was pregnant and didn't.  I wouldn't even dream of drinking while pregnant.  And I have been craving Starbucks like no body's business so hubby took me to get one Saturday morning. I got a decaf to nix my craving.  I think it worked because I didn't even finish it.

Movement:  Not yet, but today my stomach has been growling more than normal so I ate an early lunch!

Food Cravings: Water, Plums, Strawberries and Flautas

Anything Making you Queasy or Sick:  I went 13 weeks without getting sick until this past Saturday.  I don't know if it was pregnancy or the food.  We had Mexican food Saturday and I bit into something, not sure what it was and it was over for me.  didn't help that the bathroom was about a mile away from our table.  Eh I don't even wanna talk about it.  I'm just thankful Ive only been sick one time instead of daily like most pregnant ladies are.

Have you started to show yet: I think so.  I have gotten a few comments that my bump is showing.  So its kinda nice but weird too.  I don't like people staring at me.

Baby is a: We don't know yet!  Hopefully I can schedule my gender ultra sound this next Dr. apt.

Belly Button In or Out:  In

Wedding Rings On or Off:  On

Feeling Happy or Moody:  Happy! and overall just excited that I am finally pregnant after so many months of trying and I am going to be a mom. ;)

Looking Forward To: My Dr apt on Wednesday, starting to plan our gender reveal party and visiting my family in NY this weekend.

Goals this Week:  To Make dinner every night until I leave my hubby for 5 days for a wedding in NY.  To work out 2 nights this week- hopefully.

Surprise Up Our Sleeve's

Well, I know I told ya'll a couple weeks that Aaron and I had some exciting news to share and we do.  I am so excited I can finally spill the beans.

Aaron and I are pregnant!!! Well, I guess I am really the one pregnant but he helped!!  I still sometimes am in shock over the entire thing.  The day I found out I couldn't stop pinching myself.  We are over the moon and I can't wait to share our journey until Baby Evans decides to make his or her debut!

The Port-A-Potty Has Arrived!!!

Who knew that a port-a-potty could make this girl so excited.  We got out to our property late last Saturday evening to find not only a port-a-potty sitting on our lot but this.

Admiring Precision Homes work.

Yup, that is our frame to our house.  THE. FRAME!!! What?  I am so totally excited to see these small pieces of wood framing the outline of our dream home.  Our house is actually going to be standing here in just a few more short months.  I don't think I could wipe the grin off my face for the rest of the evening. We were so excited. 

This view is from the front door area looking towards our utility room.
Going out the property on Saturday we just expected to find the electric pole had been put up and decided to scope out where they wanted us to clear some brush.  What we were not expecting was our frame to be put up too.
Aaron showing me this will be the kitchen.... my DREAM kitchen!!

The rain here has really been a drag the last couple weeks.  Its so wishy washy.  Off and on, rains hard then just drizzles, then dries up completely for a day and then starts the viscous cycle all over again.  It really sucks!!  Rain just go away so they can pour our foundation and get the show on the road already.  Please....pretty please!  I would really love to be in my home by August... September 1st at latest.  So rain man, please work with me this summer so we can be in our forever home sooner than later.
