12 weeks and counting!

Hello Hello! I haven't posted in a while it seems so we have a bit to catch up on!

I guess I should start by showing my baby bump! Yes you can already see my baby bump! Trent tries to make me feel better and tell me that its because I was already so skinny that I had to start showing early haha he is the sweetest :) but I think it may be because I eat anything and everything around me ALL the time!

I have started to crave sour... for example lemons... At both Tobola Thanksgivings they had sliced lemons for the tea. Well I didn't drink any tea but I ate just about a whole lemon at each place! They were so delicious, but my lips were a little chapped after the fact, but way worth it! I am also definitely craving salty still and for the most part sweet just doesn't sound good at all. Mom made really tasty brownies "for Annelise's birthday" and I had one bite and decided meh not really worth it... I would rather have potato chips! Mom and Granny were laughing at me on Friday because I was eating potato chips and pickles together! I used to do this when I was younger and it is still yummy! So far that's how my cravings are going so far!

We also finally got to tell the Tobola side of the family on Thanksgiving Day with this cute shirt! Right after Trent and I found out we were pregnant he knew this was how he wanted to tell his family! So we found this shirt online and ordered it. Sadly, Trent had to work on Thanksgiving so he didn't get to tell his family, so we let his dad tell everyone after prayer and I lifted up my sweater to reveal this shirt underneath. The shirt ended up being too big but Sandy helped me pin it back and it makes me excited to be able to wear it when "I have a beach ball" as Trent says.

We also set up our very first Christmas tree together! I don't know if you can tell or not but we have Red, Black, and Silver ornaments on the tree. Trent didn't really want to set up the tree since nobody will see it but he ended up being really helpful! I am not a very good fluffer and he helped fluff the tree! Then he put the hooks on the ornaments while I put them on the tree. It was a great system! And for our first time I think it looks pretty good!
Well our next doctors appointment is just around the corner December 10th! And then it will be Christmas already! I will try to post again soon :) Just 28 weeks to go!

10 weeks and going strong!

We are 10 weeks along!!!

Here is my baby bump... I think I look bigger in this photo than in real life! but oh well!!

As I said in my past blog I want salty and spicy! Well I bought Flamming Hot Cheetos and that was a bad idea... I ate the whole bag in two sittings and Trent was very disappointed that he didn't get any! Haha I told him "Too bad.... I'm building a human here!"

Therefore... this is my new excuse for everything! :)

Also I have been going to bed before 9 pm everyday this week which Trent doesn't like very much. Monday (i blame on the time change) I went to bed before 8 o'clock! Well I woke up several times with the TV being so loud. One time Trent was laying next to me, the next he was walking out the bedroom door, and another time I couldn't find him but I heard crinkling and was super confused! (turns out he was eating oreos and milk on the floor because he didn't want crumbs in the bed, so sweet) and then I woke up again when he finally turned off the TV. Then the next couple of nights he was up late studying and I was dead to the world and he would come in and wake me up and say its too early to go to bed! lol It was about 9 o'clock :) Oh well I am enjoying all of this extra sleep... and I need it... I AM BUILDING A BABY HERE!!!

Well I officially joined the pregnancy club this week! Tuesday morning I woke up at 7:20 (my normal time for Tuesdays) and started getting ready but noticed I was feeling a little more nauseous than normal but kind of pushed it off. Well then I went to brush my teeth... and oops not a good idea! I started gagging! and ended up throwing up some stomach acid but because I hadn't eaten anything it didn't last long at all (maybe a minute) and I was good. So I rebrushed my teeth and headed to school. I think this was again because of the time change! Usually I am at school by 8 so I eat when I get to school and since it was already "8:30" with the time change my stomach really wanted to eat! Oh well it hasn't happened again so that's good!
Today was our first SONOGRAM!!! :)
Here is Pebble's first photo!

According to measurements Pebble is 9 weeks and 4 days which is right on par for our June 11th due date!
First the doctor told us about the fact that I have a negative blood type so I may have to get some extra shots later in the pregnancy and after the baby is born to make sure my body doesn't build up antibodies against my future babies! But she said since we aren't stuck in the 50's its no big deal these days!

Then she asked if I wanted to get a blood test to check for "CSV" which is actually just the Cold Virus. So we actually want a positive on this blood test because that way my body already has the antibodies for it. If it comes back "neutral or negative" we will have to keep a closer watch since I work around kids if I get sick. It could be super harmful if Pebble catches CSV! so let's hope I test positive!

Then she revealed all of my previous blood test results for all of the possible genetic traits I could pass to my baby that may cause birth defects. Luckily, I have very low risk for any of these traits! So we are in the clear so far! Yay!

Then of course we had the sonogram!!!! and it was so AMAZING!!! Pebble's head is definitely bigger than his body! but while we were watching he started kicking around and waving his arms around!!! it was the coolest thing getting to see how active Pebble already is!! (Trent then felt the need to call his sister and tell her that our baby could beat up her baby since ours is such a fighter! haha)

Our next appointment is December 10th for our 14 week appointment!

8 weeks along

Well the last time I posted I had just had my first doctor's appointment and now I am 8 1/2 weeks along and just 21 and 1/2 to go!

I decided I better post my cravings and turn-offs or I will forget by the end of the pregnancy!
Cravings: Anything that people talk about
"I am going to Buffalo Wild Wings tonight".... Bam I want wings!
Spicy foods, add jalapenos please!
Salty, Salty, Salty, Potato Chips or Pringles with every meal!

Food Turn-Offs: the smell of coffee! made me want to throw up!
Ranch dressing in large quantities (aka when Trent put WAY too much on my salad and i couldn't eat the rest of the night!!!)

So far I think that is it! Luckily I haven't gotten sick yet (knock on wood) and compared to Brandi throwing up every day I feel very fortunate waking up with an upset stomach and when I don't eat every couple of hours! and not actually getting sick!
I am also a pee queen! I pee so much more now!! and when I have to go... I HAVE TO GO!!! Luckily I have good students so when I disappear for two minutes they don't go bonkers and destroy my room or anything :)

Just 9 days till we get to hear Pebble's heartbeat!!! We are so excited!!!
