Happy Friday!

I'm so excited it is FINALLY Friday! It has been a long week! I feel like all I accomplished was catching up on sleep(even though I'm still tired) & on my favorite shows.  It was a lazy week BUT I needed it.  I had my 2nd doctors appointment on Wednesday and it was amazing to hear the baby's heartbeat.  Unlike the rest of the world, I slept away as the Prince married his Princess.  I did read up on the wedding and I loved her dress.  She was beautiful.  I also love the traditions-I just love all things wedding.  

My plans for the weekend:
Tonight: We have NO plans which is music to my ears.  I'm sure we will end up going to dinner and watching a movie.  Speaking of movies, have you seen Water for Elephants?  If not, go see it asap! It was amazing! It had nothing on the book, but they did a great job on keeping it similar as possible.  

Saturday: I am going somewhere in the middle of the nowhere to watch my husband mud race. Yes, mud race.  I have to say (in the most non-judgemental way) I do not fit it in these types of environments.  The people are well.....interesting to say the least.  Oh well, my husband loves the racing part so I go to support.  Thankfully, my parents are going with me to cheer him on.

Sunday: Like always, we will go to church, go to lunch, and then go to my parents and spend the evening with them. 

I never put up my Soul Steppers latest performance. The performed Easter Sunday with the older girls.  I was so proud to watch them.  They truly have my heart. I can't wait to see my baby up there one day dancing for our Savior.

I started my 12th week of pregnancy this Thursday. I cannot believe I'm almost out of the 1st trimester! I'm praying for an easier next couple of weeks! I made my appointment today to find out what we're having!! We are going May 23rd. I cannot wait. I think it's a boy and Phillip thinks its a girl, 
What do you think??

Today, was our 2nd doctors appointment. I asked my mom to come along with us so she could experience hearing the heartbeat.  Checkup went great, mommy is completely healthy.  I LOST 1 pound since my last visit-which was a complete surprise because I feel like I've gained 10!   They didn't do an ultrasound, but we all got to hear the heartbeat.  I have to say that throughout my pregnancy, I haven't thought of miscarriage too much.  I've been so sick that I've worried more about that.  Last night, I read on Facebook about a couple who went to there 11 week appointment and they couldn't find a heartbeat and they were afraid she was losing the baby.  My heart fell and I couldn't get that off my mind.  Needless to say, it was a relief when I finally heard that "bump, bump, bump" going strong at 166 bpm.   After our appointment, we ate lunch at Spanky's. The day ended up being longer than I thought so I ended up getting home late and missing a day of work.  I have been meaning to start a picture diary so I'll be posting pictures soon!

Catching Up....

How Many Weeks?
I am 10 weeks.

I am still very tired and extremely nauseated. I wish I had "Morning Sickness," mine is morning, noon, & night. Praying for an easier next couple of weeks

Weight Gain?
NONE! Whoo hoo! ;) I know this won't last long so I'm celebrating while I can. I do however feel like I've gained 10 lbs.

What I enjoy?
I enjoy a wonderful husband always looking out for me and conversations about the baby. I love to hear what everyone thinks we are having. Phillip thinks its a girl, I think its a boy, but most of my friends/family agree with Phillip. We will see May 28th!

What I miss?
I miss my energy, motivation, and my lack of appetite. I can't wait to be hungry and actually crave something!

Overall I am completely happy and blessed. My next appointment is next Wednesday!

First off, I must apologize for being so slack here lately! Even though I do catch up on all of my favorite ladies and their blogs, I have failed to have energy to write my own. I have been spending a lot of time concentrating on work. I think I've gone into somewhat of a panic since I know our lives are about to drastically change with our baby on the way! When the baby arrives, I want to give 100% to him/her and concentrate on being mommy.

➊Our Atlanta Mini Vacation!

My future brother-in-law Jareb had a WONDERFUL idea and planned a mini vacation for him, my sister, and Phillip & I. Its much needed and I plan to forget about everything with work and concentrate on relaxing while I'm there!

Our Plans:

Braves Game Friday Night!

Georgia Aquarium & Coke Building Saturday:


➋I'm loving SLEEP! I can't get enough of it!

➌I'm loving the new season of Housewives of Orange County. Who's your favorite? I LOVE Vickie-she's hilarious.

➍I'm loving that I'm having dinner with one of my best friends, Delynne tonight! She was my roommate before I got married and I sure do miss seeing her!

➎And as always I'm loving my Husband & our 2 baby girls
