4 months pregnant!!!

The OBGYN appointment went well today. No ultrasound, but we went over birthing options and such. They did find some blood in my urine and I have been having some sharp pains on my lower right side, and back when I pee or have to pee. I told her about my kidney stones last time. She said kidney stone are common for pregnancy and if it gets bad go to the GP and let them take a sample too see if there is any kidney stone dust in it. If so I can go to the hospital and get and ultrasound to see if I have stones. It's not as bad as last time, but it just started the past two days. So drinking loads of water. I will keep an eye on it. Don't want to go into pre-mature labor like I did last time at 27 weeks. So pray I can stage off stones. My 20 week Ultrasound is April-3rd!!!! We get to find out the sex!!! Fingers crossed we find out then!! 
Here are some photos of today. My 4 month baby bump is growing fast, but the rest of my is still normal for now, so that is good :) Trying to get out and walk more and eating small meals here and there. Trying to stage off any unhealthy weight. I got way too heavy last time. So just eating salads, sandwiches and just normal food but not large portions, like I did last time. Staying away from salts as well. I still have some chips, but I limit myself so I don't get water weight. It was painful last time. But all is well and baby is kicking, growing and I love just waiting to feel those tiny kicks on my lower belly. It's the best and normally after I eat. So I love my snacks because I know it won't be long before I feel the baby tapping away in there with it's tiny feet. This baby already has my heart!! So excited to meet it!!!

New Haircut and our precious little boy...

Treated myself to a haircut today. Feels great and so much easier to keep. 

 My sweet Tallis... I love hanging out with this little guy all day. I am so very blessed with this sweet little boy. 

14 Weeks Pregnant.

Well here I am in all my glory!! Sorry for the PJ's pic, but I have been living in them lately, haha! 
Yes, I really am already poking out this much, and yes, only one in there, and I have also lost 10 pounds since being pregnant. So all baby. Morning sickness has kicked my booty this pregnancy. I am  happy to say it is no longer a problem. Now that I will be 15 weeks tomorrow, I am eating like a champ again!! Yay! I have missed food so much and now I am craving chicken caesar salads,  clementine oranges, mexican food and sandwiches. Much better than the tomato sandwiches I have been only able to eat. 
I just keep growing and I'v been feeling the baby move since 12 weeks and on, but more and more everyday. I know what to look for the 2nd time around and I know what it feels like. So really cool and reassuring every time I lay flat in bed and feel the tiny kicks and flutters. Normally at night before bed, just like I did with Tallis. Can't wait to meet this baby. I honestly can't tell you how excited I am over this sweet baby. I think more so 2nd time around since I know how amazing it is to meet your child for the first time. Tallis has paved the way and is going to be such a wonderful big brother. He is so excited, we are telling him what a big help he is going to be to mommy and daddy. He loves it! 
I will post a 15 week belly shot when I can. Thank you for reading and praying!! It helps me to look back and remember all I am going though and the how far our family has come... 
God Bless, Laura
