14 weeks... and growing!!

Well, so much for updating every week ;)

I have to say it's hard for me to believe that I am already over 14 weeks along now!!  I just know the holiday season will fly by, and we will be well into the new year before I know it!!  At 14 weeks, I feel as if I am finally over the hump of nausea and having to have crackers on stand by at all time!!  I hoping all my energy comes soon as well!!  My only complaint recently is just lots of drainage and sinus pressure..  I really can't complain too much though, I have heard many worse horror stories from other women about their pregnancy experiences!!

And, in case you were wondering...

Baby P--about the size of a lemon... on everything I've read the baby's size is always compared to a fruit- some of which I've never heard of!
Movement--haven't felt any yet!
Weight gain--is about 2 lbs. (I think ;) I go to Dr this Thursday)
Maternity clothes--Haven't worn any official maternity clothes yet, but I do have a 'belly band' and have used a rubber-band to 'button' my jeans.. They will button, it's just not comfortable all day!  I feel like this past week I've just started poking out!
Food cravings--nothing crazy that I've noticed.. The only thing I've really wanted is McDonald's french fries- which I resist the urge :) and I guess along with cravings, I have NOT desired any sweets- now that's weird for me!!
             Sleep--I've been sleeping well except for the 4-6 potty breaks ;)

As I said earlier, I go back to the Dr Thursday, she told me it would be a 'boring' visit because I won't have a sonogram, and I've had one at every other visit!!  But hearing that precious heart beat will make it totally worthwhile and NOT boring!!  It's a humbling thought knowing there is something with a beating heart inside of me-- GOD IS SO GOOD!!!
We should find out the baby's gender December 8, less than 4 weeks!!!  As always I am so thankful to God for this amazing blessing he placed upon Brett and I to start this family!  He is definitely taking care of us every step of the way!

Here's what's been going on with us recently...

For Halloween Brett and I were "Shrek and Fiona"

At the gym everyone calls Brett "Shrek", this started years ago when Drew first called him and ogre, and then well, Shrek just stuck!!  It could be worse... I guess!

Tailgating.. our favorite thing to do in Tuscaloosa on gameday! 

Fam Jam!  This was before the LSU game.. although the game didn't turn out as we had hoped, it was a great day!

On Veteran's day, Eileen and I decided to use our day off to take a road trip to Florence to visit Katie.. Katie we miss you!!!

And 3 years ago today, November 13, 2008, my best friend asked me a very important question..,

and I, gladly said YES!!!!
