10 Weeks

We're in double digits!!!!! My belly is officially the "Itchy & Scratchy" show! What the hell is going on here? How is my midsection already expanding at this pace? It doesn't seem quite right! But I can tell a huge difference is my 8 and 10 week photos. Yes, I'm sure its not twins and no, I have not gained any weight. I know women experience this at different stages, yay for me it has already begun!

9 Weeks

If I wasn't pregnant I'd swear I do just about anything to make my stomach stop hurting!! UGH!!! Why do my insides hate me?!!!! I've had stomach problems since a child and finally decided to spend an insane amount of money to find out what it was a few months back. After an Upper GI, a swallow study and more than a grand, delayed gastric emptying.....seriously?! That's it? Not this gnarly GI bug that grows and gets worse with every bite I take, eating your insides?! Ok fine, I took a 2 week coarse of Reglan, while in Europe might I add, which was a serious commitment! The stomach pain was gone aaaaaannnnnnddddd a month later I'm pregnant, wiping out all the progress I had just made. This was the ONLY thing I didn't want!!! Bring on the nausea, vomiting and excessive salvation (seriously joking) but not the stomach aches!!! -__- This week has been the worst! Hoping it gets better soon, Lord please!!!!!

8 WEEKS!!!

Yay!!!!! Starting my baby bump pics this week! My best friend Blair met me at Joanne Fabrics to choose the background and number display for the pictures. I wanted something fun and I had to make my pics a little more unique with a patterned background that wasn't neutral. I've always loved the chalkboard but it's been done.

Here's the fabric we picked!

Maternity Shopping

= not gonna happen. These people have got to be out of their ever loving minds. It was my first time in the store and I took along my friend Joanne. Every article of clothing I picked up was immediately put back down due to the price tag. Is this a joke? I know the clothes have more material because they are larger but umm yeah not $120 for a par of shorts with a band around the waist. A large size at good ol' Forever 21 will have to do! But it was really fun going in and trying some stuff on, including the 7 month fake belly. Plus the free juice, water and fiber bars!! I know it's pretty soon to be shopping at the maternity stores but I had a reason! My husband got me a gift card to Destination Maternity for our anniversary, a week after we found out we were pregnant :) How sweet!! There was a promotional sale so I couldn't resist. Wondering what BM stands for, you guessed it "baby momma"!! LOL!

Eating Healthy?

This really isn't my thing per se....the whole eating healthy thing! I mean I don't eat horrible, fried food is not a regular part of my diet and I've never had alcohol on a regular basis. There's a big difference is what I avoid eating and making because I don't like grease popping on me and purposefully making healthier choices. I've always been known for refusing to eat ANYTHING fat free or reduced fat. Even claiming that the reduced sodium soy sauce tastes different than the original. So this was going to be a real challenge! But we went to the grocery store and I took my first real stab at it.

So That's It! My Little Nugget!

Our first appointment was upon us. Giddy as can be I patiently waited until 2:40pm! Tj met me there and things were underway. First the pee test then my Doctor surprised me with a ultrasound, which apparently isn't routine for the confirmation appointment. There it was, our little nugget!!! It seriously looked like a chicken nugget, it was the first thing that came to mind, and the way Tj and I are about a name, this baby might have a food name until the day of birth. I was 7.5 weeks. So excited!!! I still can't believe it :)) I take every moment to thank God for giving us this blessing!

There he/she is, Baby Hazley!!!!
