18 Weeks!!

So it's baby belly has definately popped :) haha and it seriously was over night. When people say it happens over night they seriously are not kidding haha! Anyways it is exciting. Last night I was awake all night because I was having crazy stomach pain that just would not stop. It was so tight and crampy and my lower back was killing me and I couldn't figure out why I was having such bad pain all of a sudden. But it kept me up all night because as soon as I would fall kinda asleep I would shift or move or something and it felt like the baby would move inside and it would just kill!! Than when I got up this morning is was still horrible. My stomach was so tight it was pulled flat and was seriously like a rock. It hurt to bend to get the shampoo in the shower or bend my legs to get dressed. It was crazy. But as the day went on it relaxed a little and around 10:30 I went to the bathroom at work and looked in the mirror and I couldn't believe it, my stomach was totally popped out. Bigger than it has ever been before. At lunch my mom was even shoked how much I had changed over night. So I am concluded that is what all the pain was about last night, my stomach was stretching and getting ready for the big showing I guess haha.

But the other exciting news is that I can feel my baby move :) I was laying in bed yesterday morning before church and all of a sudden I felt something. I told Kyle and he put his hand where I was feeling it but of course he couldn't feel anything. It was so light I didn't want to move because I didn't want it to stop. I wasn't sure if it was the baby forsure or not but as the day went on the feeling went from light gas bubble feelings to little flutter kick feelings! So I was pretty sure it was the baby! And than today when I was driving to work it all of a sudden felt like something poked me from the inside and than for the rest of today it did not stop. There was ever a minute around lunch time it went crazy for like a whole minute. It is very exciting but really weird at the same time. Just because it is a feeling that you cannot control and it just happens out of the blue. But I love it because I told Kyle it is just a daily confirmation that yes my baby is still alive and growing inside there!! I know I am only almost half way done and have a long way to go but I am just so excited to meet this new little person!! I can't wait to have my family grow! It is a life changing experience and I am so grateful to be able to have such a wonderful husband to share all the exciting moments with :) I love you Kyle!!

16 weeks

So here are my 16 week photos. This was on Monday so I am almost 17 weeks now (on Sunday) which doesn't make much of a difference in my size but I am assuming it will start to change more drasticly in the next few weeks! I am feeling really good lately. Other than bad crampy on some days and as for my head aches I havn't gotten one in about a week so things are looking good and hopefully they stay that way! I can't believe I am almost half way done this journey! When you talk about getting pregnant everyone tells you that there is 9 months to plan and prepare and get used to the idea which is true but time goes by so fast. You don't realize it until you have something to base it on! Especially working, it really makes your days and weeks go by fast because you are always looking for the weekend or spring break haha!

But as of last night Kyle and I made our first baby purchase. It is a chariot! It you don't know what that is it is a really nice stroller. We knew we wanted one but didn't feel rushed but when we found a website where they were on a big sale we just had to jump on it and now we are the proud owners of an "avocado" green cougar chariot :) Haha I just had to add that the color was called avocado green because apparently our baby is the size an avocado right now so it kinda made me laugh :) I know what a thing to get excited about but I think it is more of the fact that I will have a baby of my own to put in it is what makes me most excited!
