16 Weeks

We had an awesome time at home last week! Since Baby K didn't cooperate at our regular appointment, my sweet husband found a 4D Ultrasound clinic in Savannah for us to visit! We scheduled an appointment, and it was even better than we imagined. We were not only able to find out the gender of our sweet little one, but we got to watch her on the big screen for 20 minutes! It was just amazing! Our tech, Danielle, even showed us the 4D view of her several times! We got a DVD, so we can watch it as much as we want. :) My mom also went with me and Philip, so that was really special. 
Since we did find out on Saturday we put our Gender Reveal Party back on a few hours before! I want to give MAJOR PROPS to Gigi's Cupcakes in Savannah!! They normally need at least 1 day's notice to make gender reveal cupcakes, but when we walked in and explained our situation, they jumped right in and made it happen! They just had us pick from the flavors they had made already, and they filled them with pink filling and decorated the top with blue and pink pearls. They had them ready in 25 MINUTES!! It was truly awesome, and they were beautiful... and YUMMY!! Here are a few photos from our Gender Reveal Party:


Team Pink!

Team Blue!

 The pink filling!! IT'S A GIRL!!

Haha! ;)

Our invitations!

Our beautiful cupcakes from Gigi's!

And on to my normal weekly post....

Baby is about the size of an avocado.

Maternity Clothes:  I finally went to Motherhood Maternity because my sister, Melissa, gave me a gift card! I got a cute red tunic and some maternity tights. I also ordered a couple things online from Old Navy this week. I am so blessed... my friend Jennifer gave me a TON of maternity clothes, so I really didn't need to buy much at all! I have also rediscovered my gauchos!! LOVE THEM!!

Gender:  IT'S A GIRL!!! We are SO excited!!

Movement:  I sometimes think I can feel her move, but it might just be normal tummy rumblings. ;)

Cravings: On Monday I got my smoked sausage that I've been craving, then a little later I wanted Orange Juice, then later it was Doritos. LOL...

Symptoms: Emotional... as if I wasn't emotional enough before pregnancy.

Total Weight Gain: 10 lbs.

What I Miss: Being able to eat pork chops and ham. I haven't been able to handle those meats.

Best Moment of the Week: Seeing Baby K on the big screen with Philip and mom and finding out she was a girl! It was unbelievable!

What I'm Looking Forward To:  Staying at home!! I have put in my notice at work, and I can't wait to be finished!

15 Weeks

Well, we made it home! We were not able to find out the gender on Tuesday because our little one was hiding... I think it makes for a cute picture, though!


As we are impatient in nature, we have made an appointment with an elective ultrasound clinic on Saturday in Savannah. We are taking my mom with us, and hopefully they will be able to determine the gender! If not, we will still get a session where we (along with my mom!) get to see our baby again and get some photos out of it... so, we're really excited!!

Maternity Clothes:  Wearing mostly normal pants still... embracing the rubber band trick on the button, though. If you don't know what I mean, look it up. It is brilliant and simple. I have also dug my amazing gauchos out of the bottom of a drawer. LOVE them.

Gender:  Still a mystery... hopefully only for a few more days!!

Movement:  I'm beginning to think I feel little movements... but since it's my first pregnancy, I can't really distinguish it from other tummy rumblings.
Cravings:  I am obsessed with Ginger Ale now... never drank it before pregnancy... and still sausage!!

Symptoms: I get tongue tied like ALL the time, so my sentences don't make any sense. Also, I say a random word in place of what I really meant, so another reason my sentences still don't make sense. (It makes for a lot of laughter at work while I'm training new people.)

Total Weight Gain: 7 lbs.

What I Miss:  Being able to sleep on my stomach... it's totally uncomfortable now if I even try.

Best Moment of the Week: Seeing our little one on the ultrasound... even though he/she was hiding the goods!

What I'm Looking Forward To:  Still finding out the gender of our baby!!

14 Weeks

Well, it has officially been a year to the day since my last post. Oops! My sister is encouraging me to blog again now that I am pregnant, so that I can keep everyone updated with more than just facebook photos. I am currently 14 weeks along. (I'll be 15 weeks tomorrow!) Philip and I are thrilled and terrified. Haha!

Baby is about the size of a lemon.

Maternity Clothes:  Right now I am mainly wearing regular pants/shorts that were too big for me before pregnancy. I did buy a pair of maternity jeans that I've worn a couple times. I'm wearing a lot of loose fitting flowy shirts, because I'm at that stage where you can't really tell if I'm pregnant or just have a pot belly. :)

Gender:  Hope to find out next week!! We are dying to know!

Movement:  None yet.
Cravings:  I have this weird craving for sausage! LOL! It is something I hardly ever eat, but I saw it on the Food Network early on and have been wanting it ever since!

Symptoms: I am just really tired all the time... and also a little crazy. Sorry Philip! ;)

Total Weight Gain: 7 lbs.

What I Miss:  Sleeping comfortably through the night.

Best Moment of the Week: On Tuesday, Philip made my lunch and breakfast while I was running late (we had to leave at 5:30am for work). After work, he took me out for frozen yogurt, and then went with me for pizza and karaoke with some friends that night! It was a great day, and I'm lucky to have such a caring husband!

What I'm Looking Forward To:  Finding out the gender of our baby and going home to Georgia for our gender reveal party!! (Please pray we are able to find out!!)
