Hello friends! Please don’t disown me for being a bad blogger! The past week has been nuts! I’m pretty sure I put in close to 60 hours at work last week. I know that is the norm for some people, but man it sure did take a toll on this momma-to-be! I’m proud to say even with the busy-ness and the fact that I didn’t blog my eats each day, I was still smart about my choices!

Obviously I ate more than just those things, but I was conscious about my choices, making sure they were nutritious & not just empty calories.

Luckily today we had an early out because of a snow storm! Btw, we are supposed to have 10 inches of snow by the time it’s over! Sheesh, but hey I’ll take the extra time off! My fingers are now crossed for a late start tomorrow!

I thought I would take some time to answer the multitude of questions I’ve been getting about my pregnancy!

  • Are you going to find out the sex? YES!!! January 25th is our ultrasound!
    • The next question we get is “Don’t you want it to be a surprise?” My response is that we’re going to be surprised 4 months early! ;) Come on people, I’m a planner!!
  • Have you had morning sickness? None, which I am SSSOOO thankful for! :)
  • Any weird food cravings yet? Nothing really. I eat a lot of Mexican, but I think that’s pretty normal! ;)
  • When is your due date? June 16, 2011
  • Do you have any names picked out? Nothing set in stone yet. We have a few favorites, but will probably narrow those down once we find out what we’re having!
  • Are you working out while pregnant? To be honest, I haven’t very much lately. And cancelling our gym membership to save $$ doesn’t help with that! I plan to do things at home, for example, I’ve found a few different specific pregnancy work out videos on You Tube that I want to try and I have a plethora of work out videos to do.
  • Nursery plans? Oh yes!! Kyle & I got a great start when we were off over Christmas break, but I’ll save that for another post!

So far I really enjoy being pregnant & I hope that feeling continues! It’s hard to believe I’m almost half way, Thursday I will be 18 weeks!

16 weeks, 1.3.201116 weeks - 1.3.11

Usually Monday nights I spend solo, but because of the weather Kyle’s classes were cancelled! So I’m off to enjoy some extra time with my main man! Later peeps!

You are way too adorable pregnant. I cannot wait to find out what you are having. Going to be a gorgeous baby!

I'm sad that I don't live closer so I can go to the baby shower and later hold the little critter when he/she is born.

So very happy that you don't have morning sickness. Not fun!

We did not find out the sex of the first baby but did find out for the second. Both were just as exciting. :)

Lovin' my favorite friend's little baby bump!!! You look great hun!

I'm with you about finding out the sex of the baby. I did too with my two children, every time. I'm a planner myself

Casey said...

Oh my goodness, I COMPLETELY get where you're coming from! Working that much is almost impossible to blog through. I hope you get a break- even if it is due to snow- soon!

You're doing so well taking care of yourself and your baby! Such a good mommy already! I'm so glad I get to read about you doing all of this before I go through it! :)

Hey, I'm doing my first giveaway ever on my blog. I'd love it if you checked it out since- pretty much reading your blog a year ago inspired me to start mine!
