18 weeks

How far along? 18 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +4 or so, Now that I'm getting into the postive numbers I'm weighing myself less and less...
Maternity clothes? I wear one pair of maternity pants, and I wear all my fat pants and shirts. I bought a couple of maternity shirts from some thrift stores so i'll probably start wearing those. It's not completely needed but I think it looks cuter.  
Best moment this week: Feeling the baby move! I felt the first real thumps and I knew for sure it was the baby. I have felt it 4-5 times a day since then (Thursday I think). 
Movement: Yes! little thumps whenever i'm sitting down or laying on my stomach.  
Food cravings: Still very hungry. I usually wake up starving in the night. I still crave whatever I see on TV or on an ad or anything. 
Labor Signs: None :)
Belly Button in or out? Totally still in. 
What I miss: Nothing really, things are going pretty good right now.. 
What I am looking forward to: Finding out the gender on Oct. 2nd!
Milestones: I'm showing a lot more, it depends on what I wear though, and my belly is always bigger at night.  
Realization of the week: I never know what to put here haha. 

This past week was good. Just more school and work for me and school for Leland. We went to the BYU v Utah game on Saturday. It was a lot of fun even though we lost. Also time seems to be passing much quicker now. Soon the semester will be over and them baby will almost be here :)

17 Weeks

How far along? 17 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +3 or so, It fluctuates every day but at the doctors last week I had gained 2. 
Maternity clothes? I wear one pair of maternity pants, and I wear all my fat pants and shirts. I bought a couple of maternity shirts from some thrift stores so i'll probably start wearing those. It's not completely needed but I think it looks cuter.  
Best moment this week: Hearing the baby's heartbeat at our doctor's appointment. And making an appointment for our ultrasound :)
Movement: Possibly, I'm not sure what exactly to look out for. But I have felt some weird twinges down there sometimes. 
Food cravings: Still very hungry. I've been craving steak after having it at Leland;s sister's house. 
Labor Signs: None :)
Belly Button in or out? Totally still in. 
What I miss: Not being sick. I am still pretty sick any day that I don't take the Zofran. When I take it I am fine, but I wish I didn't have to take it. 
What I am looking forward to: Finding out the gender on Oct. 2nd!
Milestones: 2nd trimester! and I actually look pregnant, not just fat. . 
Realization of the week: I never know what to put here haha. 

This has been a good week. I am in the full swing of school now and it doesn't seem too bad. I don't know if my classes are easier or if I'm more motivated now than I was before I was single, but either way things seem pretty manageable this semester. I have been pretty happy lately. I am so grateful for Leland. He helps out around the house so much, more than I do a lot of times. And he is so willing to help me with whatever I ask. He is great and he is going to be such an amazing dad :).

Pictures and 16 weeks

I finally took some pictures now that I've started showing. Sorry that I skipped a couple of weeks, I just never got around to updating the blog. But here are the pictures. I feel like I look super huge for being only 3 months still. 

(14 weeks)

(15 weeks 5 days)


How far along? 16 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 0, I think I am back to my starting weight now. 
Maternity clothes? I wear one pair of maternity pants, and I wear all my fat pants and shirts, the dress in the picture above is a maternity dress, I have very few options on church clothes so I wore that to stake conference yesterday. It definitely made me look very pregnant. 
Best moment this week: Getting the baby center updates. The baby is now the size of an apple!
Movement: Possibly, I'm not sure what exactly to look out for. But I have felt some weird twinges down there sometimes. 
Food cravings: Still very hungry. One day last week I was craving BBQ chips. I guess this baby must take after Leland who loves all things BBQ haha. 
Labor Signs: None :)
Belly Button in or out? Totally still in. 
What I miss: Not being sick. I am still pretty sick any day that I don't take the Zofran. When I take it I am fine, but I wish I didn't have to take it. 
What I am looking forward to: Our dr,'s appointment on Friday, and finding out the gender at 20 weeks.  
Milestones: 2nd trimester! and I actually look pregnant, not just fat. . 
Realization of the week: Soon we will finally know what we are having.

These past few weeks have been pretty busy. Leland's brother came to Utah to visit his fiancee, so he stayed with us for a few days. Also my great grandma passed away, so all of my family came up for her funeral, and we got to spend some time with them. It was a lot of fun. Also this past Tuesday I started school again at BYU. I like my classes a lot. I will have a lot of time consuming homework, but I am glad to be finishing more school before the baby comes.
