19 week update!

     So 19 weeks so far as been full of ups and downs, I still have really bad days but I am starting to have more good days then bad ones. 
     Yep little belly buddy is growing right along! I swear the fruit comparisons shock me every week, the little mango sized baby inside me love to move! I feel him/her moving inside me every single day. 

     I have to admit that feeling belly buddy move is a lot different than when I was pregnant with my own. When my girls were in my belly, I would get excited over every little kick. With belly buddy it is just a reassurance this little one is doing ok. 
     Yep I still only have a tiny little bump, and in the right outfit you can't even tell. I just can not wait for the bump to finally make its appearance! The big belly is one of my favorite things about pregnancy! 

     Tomorrow is the big 20 week ultrasound! (At 19w3d), it will be nice to get reassurance that belly buddy is growing how he/she should. And the parents are very excited to find out if their little one is a boy or girl! 

     What do you think belly buddy is going to be? A girl? A boy? 
     I would share what I think belly buddy is but to be honest I keep having dreams it is a fish... Yeah I know odd right?

18 weeks!

     So we are at 18 weeks! That is the beginning of the 5th month! Oh how time has flown! 
     Belly buddy is now the size of a sweet potato! It is just crazy to me how fast this little one is growing! 

     I am also already feeling movements! When I drink cold apple juice the little one just goes crazy kicking away! 

     I am still sick but slowly getting better! I the medications are working again for the most part and I haven't had to go in and get fluids in almost a week! I am still not feeling back to normal but it is just amazing to slowly be getting back to normal! 

     I still only have a tiny belly but belly buddy is starting to show that he/she is in there! 

     Next week I have the "big" ultrasound! S&J are so excited to find out if they will be having a little girl or boy! I still have no idea I have no feeling either way. As I have told many friends and family I keep dreaming belly buddy is a fish... 

      I went from maternity pants to regular jeans (med bloat was mean) to know my jeans are getting tight in the stomach but I am just swimming in my maternity jeans. 

      I have started making sure to use LOTS and lots of lotion in my tummy but wanted to know what lotion www best for you? I want something thicker than what I am using right now.

16 week "Bumpdate"

     So I don't have much of a "Bump" these days. I am still sick and having a hard time eating as much as I should but I really am working on it!

     I do have a doctors appointment today so I will try to update after the appointment with what their plan is now! But depending on what they decide it might take me a bit longer to update than I would like.


     The IPs baby (AKA Belly buddy) is now the size of an Avocado! I have actually been eating a lot of avocado when ever I find some good ones in the store I grab them all! Having to try to get down good fats has been a nice excuse to eat them as they are one of my favorite foods!

     Now for what you actually clicked on the page for! here is my "bump" or lack there of... 
     Yes I know I have lost a LOT of weight and I am working on trying to gain some back. Hopefully I will be feeling better sooner than later...

Lack of updates

I admit I have been a terrible blogger and I feel bad because there are so many of you amazing people following along with this pregnancy. 
As most of you know I have been pretty sick. I was actually diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum. So to say it has been a rough time has been a understatement. 
Even with my anti nausea medication it has been hard to find foods that I can keep down. And it seems as if as soon as I get a few my body completely changes and I get to start all over again. 

So while I have not been blogging I have been trying to take care of myself and little belly buddy (who is now actually the size of a orange...) 

I will also leave this post with my newest bumpdate! As you can tell in the picture yes I have lost a lot weight (28lbs now) but so far. But belly buddy has had a perfect heartbeat and all ultrasounds he/she has been on track for growth. I 

Thank you for reading my blog still I apologize for being a terrible blogger bit I am hoping once I feel better it will be easier!
