Boy or Girl?

The time has come! I couldn't wait a week to announce it to y'all! If you follow me on instagram or we are facebook friends, then you already know, but for everyone else, here you go!
It's a BOY!

I'm shocked. I was FOR SURE it was a girl. I even had bought newborn headbands I was THAT sure! Ha! Jokes on me!

Baby boy doesn't have a name yet. We thought for sure we'd name him Graham, but after the appointment, I just wasn't feeling a connection between Graham and the baby inside me. So we are working through some names and will announce as soon as we are sure we aren't going to change it.

The reveal was such a sweet little get together of our parents, my Nanny, and my sister and brother in law. Afterwards we went out for Mexican and everyone celebrated with Margaritas. Except me. Boo! I may have sneaked a few sips. Boy did it taste good!

Still can't believe we are having a son. A SON! This is going to take some time getting used to!

13 week bump update

Bump Update
How far along? 13 weeks

Total weight gain: Today's appointment showed I am up 4 pounds, but like the nurse said the scale really just reads "I'm growing a baby." LOVED that perspective!

Maternity clothes? Always and forever until this baby is born! And probably a little after too.

Stretch marks? not that I have found yet.

Sleep: comes and goes. I've been tossing and turning a lot lately.

Best moment this week: We got to see our adorable little baby today!

Miss anything? wine and sushi. ALL.THE.TIME. This probably won't change the whole pregnancy.

Food cravings: fruit. I craved this with Raegan too. Wonder if that means it's a girl again? Oh and double cheeseburgers from McDonald's.

Anything making you queasy or sick? chicken and anything with a strong smell.

Gender: They took a peak today and we have a....

Haha. Sorry. We haven't told our families yet. So we are keeping it a secret for one more week. Next week check my bump update picture. All of the pom poms will either be pink or blue!

Labor signs: nope

Symptoms: morning sickness is getting better, but now I'm breaking out like a hormonal teenager!

Belly button in or out? In! It never popped with Raegan. Doubt it will this time.

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Definitely on cloud 9 now that we know boy or girl :)

Looking forward to: telling everyone if we have a baby Harper or a baby Graham in mama's belly!

Hows Dad doing? No comment. Literally. That's what he said.

12 week bump update

Bump Update
How far along? 12 weeks

Total weight gain: According to my bathroom scale I'm up 2 pounds. I think that's pretty good!

Maternity clothes? Oh yes! This baby really popped this week! No more frumpy belly, this is a really baby belly now!

Stretch marks? not that I have found yet.

Sleep: I sleep great because I'm so exhausted all the time!

Best moment this week: looking pregnant and not like I've eaten too much.

Miss anything? wine and sushi. ALL.THE.TIME. This probably won't change the whole pregnancy.

Food cravings: fruit. I craved this with Raegan too. Wonder if that means it's a girl again?

Anything making you queasy or sick? chicken and anything with a strong smell.

Gender: hoping to find out soon!

Labor signs: nope

Symptoms: BAD morning sickness, acne (getting better), exhausted.

Belly button in or out? In! It never popped with Raegan. Doubt it will this time.

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Definitely moody. I'm sick all the time and that just makes me emotional.

Looking forward to: seeing baby at our sono next Friday for our 1st trimester screening appointment.

Hows Dad doing? He's excited to find out if he gets to add another boy to the family!
