Bumpdate || Eleven - Thirteen

How far along: 11 weeks

Due Date: December 17, 2015

Baby is the size of: A cute little lime.

Symptoms: Nauseous occasionally, after eating normally. Still mostly in the afternoons and evenings. Waking up at night to potty. I felt like I was getting overheated and got really light headed during our trip to Talladega for Cody to do the racing experience. Once I got cooled down and had a drink, I was fine.

Gender: Still thinking boy over here! Cody says girl!

Name: Still deciding and debating between a couple.

Movement: I know baby is wiggling around, but mama isn't feeling it yet.

Nursery: No progress yet and not many plans to start until we know the gender.

Maternity Clothes: Pants are snug. Feeling like my Nike shorts are what I'll be living in for the summer.

Sleep: Getting hot at night. Sleeping mostly good until I wake up to use the bathroom.

Best Moment This Week: Telling my friend Brittany about our little peanut! And telling my grandfather also! 

Missing Anything: Subs. Hair coloring. Subs. Hair coloring. 

Cravings/Aversions: Craving steak and baked potatoes - sour cream, bacon, cheese, the whole nine yards. Not crazy about chicken...

Health/Exercise: Walking on the treadmill during the week to fit in some exercise.

Mood: Relieved about summer vacation! Probably more moody than I realize sometimes.

Husband: Very sweet and loving. Still holding onto baby being girl despite most everybody thinking boy.

Looking Forward To: Our 12 week ultrasound next Friday! Can't wait to see how baby has grown in two weeks!

How far along: 12 weeks

Due Date: December 17, 2015

Baby is the size of: A plum - baby is actually measuring 5 days ahead!

Symptoms: I don't think this is really a symptom, but my stomach gets so much bigger after I eat - hence the picture above! Nausea seems to be winding down a bit, but a stuffy nose is taking it's place in the mornings and evenings.

Gender: I didn't have as strong of a gut feeling after our 12 week ultrasound, but I'm still leaning towards boy.

Name: Not decided completely. Narrowed down.

Movement: Our last ultrasound at 10 weeks, baby was such a wiggle worm! Baby was a lot more calm during the 12 weeks ultrasound.

Nursery: No progress yet!

Maternity Clothes: No maternity clothes yet, but I did buy linen stretchy shorts from Old Navy to make it through the summer. I don't know why anybody would want buttons and zippers after wearing these babies.

Sleep: Mostly good - potty breaks, of course.

Best Moment This Week: Once we had our ultrasound on Friday and everything still looks perfect, we decided it would be a great time to tell the world about our little secret! And we couldn't have thought of a more special day than our anniversary to do it!

Missing Anything: The same. Subs. Hair colored. 

Cravings/Aversions: Salads and pasta.

Health/Exercise: Walking on the treadmill as much as possible.

Mood: So relieved and happy to finally announce our secret to the world!

Husband: Sweet as can be! Made our anniversary very special with our mountain picnic and sweet baby announcement posts on Instagram.

Looking Forward To: Getting my hair colored next week! Yahoo!

How far along: 13 weeks

Due Date: December 17, 2015

Baby is the size of: A sweet Georgia peach!

Symptoms: A stuffy nose - especially in the morning and night. Sore chest still. Feeling more energized, but tired quickly in the evenings. 

Gender: We scheduled our gender determination ultrasound for July 3rd! So our gender reveal party is scheduled for the 5th! We're so excited to finally find out if we're having a little girl or a little boy!

Name: We've got it pretty much figured out, but waiting of course to find out what we're having to announce!

Movement: No movements yet!

Nursery: Dreaming of ideas, but no decisions yet!

Maternity Clothes: Not yet. Just rocking those stretchy linen shorts from Old Navy, Nike shorts and t-shirts. So fashionable.

Sleep: Pretty good - waking up early for potty breaks.

Best Moment This Week: Getting my hair colored finally!! 

Missing Anything: Sub sandwiches! 

Cravings/Aversions: Pasta & guacamole.

Health/Exercise: Treadmilling as much as I can.

Mood: Very moody here recently. Cody is sweet enough to stay calm with me.

Husband: Sweet, patient and understanding. Very helpful when needed!

Looking Forward To: Our vacation to Maryland/Delaware next week!

  1. I know you are ready to find out if the little one will be a boy or girl so you can get to planning. Did you experience any bad morning sickness during your first trimester?

  2. Oh my gosh I can't wait to find out so I can start shopping for my sweet nugget!!!!!!

  3. You look so cute!! The day finally came where my Nike shorts no longer fit. I could still wear them below the bump, but they just weren't comfortable anymore. Nike definitely needs to invest in some maternity shorts! haha Also, do you have a Jimmy Johns near you? The have a veggie sub that is delicious!! I definitely indulge in one of those when I get the craving for a sandwich.

  4. I had forgotten that pregnant women can't have deli sad!!!! I love eating Subway! Cute pictures!

I'm sitting here with my three week old daughter and becoming a mommy has been the best thing that's ever happened to me. Can't wait to keep up with the exciting months ahead

  7. How fun that you get to find out boy or girl in just about a week! :) Hope s/he cooperates for you!
