16 Weeks Pregnant!!

So today we are 16 weeks and 4 days pregnant. this week was quite a shock for me. I started to lactate!! It was so weird but cool! On top of that my breasts are killing me and have grown just in the past 3-4 days. I just got a new bra and I am already growing out of it! Another cool thing I am experiencing more every day is the baby kicking! I have lost track of how many times a day it is kicking. It is always in the same spot. I was riding in the car with my mom bringing back some wings from Beef O' Brady's for our husbands and smelling the hot wings made the baby kick me hard! As well as me singing in church then sitting down it started kicking up a storm! I am loving it. I know it is the Lords way of comforting me through this time of not seeing my little one. I finally get to see the baby Jan-3rd (Monday) and will hopefully get to find the sex out. We are so excited just to hopefully see it on my 17 week mark. Last time we saw the baby it was only 10 weeks old. We are over due for some one on one time with this sweet baby. Please pray the doctors get to let us have a ultrasound. I will post photos as soon as we get home, but will not reveal the sex of the baby till the family knows first :) Hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Christmas season.
Love, Laura

15 weeks old!

This is how big the baby is now. No this not our baby but just a example of the size of our little one. So cool!! I wish I could look inside of me and see this :) The baby is the size of a softball or navel orange.

15 weeks Pregnant!!

We finally got a appointment with an Ob-Gyn on Jan-3rd. I will be exactly 17 weeks pregnant then and we are hoping to find out the sex!! We are SUPER excited and can't wait till we get to see the baby. The last time we saw the wee one it was 10 weeks old. I have yet to have an examination so they are going to do blood work, ultrasound, an internal exam and hopefully I get to meet my midwife. I have heard from several people that this doctor is awesome, and will calm our nerves about this pregnancy. My belly has changed shape and is now more like a little basketball. You can see where the uterus is sticking out above the pubic bone. I am feeling the baby a lot now. Just little flutters and more so at night when I am laying down going to sleep. They are light but concentrated in the same spot every time. I am loving it!! I can't wait to post photos of the baby on Jan-3rd, but I wont tell everyone the sex till we have our baby gender reveling party :)

2nd Trimester!!!

My sister Elizabeth and me.
I can't wait to spend Christmas with my family this year!!

The house is decorated for Christmas!!

And last but not not least!!

Yeah!! We made it!! This is how big our baby is this week! I can't believe how fast our little one is growing. I had really bad growing pains this past week and I even finally felt the baby move, but only for a second. It was the coolest thing!! I was on my back watching T.V. and about 2 1/2 inches below my belly button I felt it rolling then it stopped. I wanted to cry I was so excited. I have never felt that before and I can't wait to feel the baby again and hopefully soon! Still looking for a OB & GYN but we can't get anyone to call us back.... Please pray we get in soon. It has been three weeks since we had our sonogram and have yet to be examined as well. I always get nervous when I don't see the baby in a while... I am always praying over this sweet baby and for the Lord to protect it. Hope to put a photo of the baby up soon for you :)

12 weeks Pregnant

Yes, this is me at only 12 weeks pregnant!! I am HUGE!! My ovaries have not gone down and the baby keeps growing so my tummy is quite compacted. I am in pain a lot due to my uterus pushing on my ovaries (size of tangerines) and my uterus is a little bigger than a grapefruit. So needless to say everyone thinks I am like 5 months pregnant. I say NOPE... I am due around June 13-16th. I am getting the hormonal headaches a lot this past week and having a lot of sharp pains in my ovaries/ Uterus and in turn makes it hard for me to sleep, walk, and go to the bathroom. I keep thinking maybe they are finally going down now, but I don't know because
I just moved back to the States and have yet to find a OB & GYN. It is hard trying to find one that will know what I am going through. I need an understanding doctor and one that will take there time with us. So please pray we find a good one and a good Hospital to deliver in. I will post photos of the baby as soon as I get another photo. I can't wait to see our sweet little jumping bean!!
