Bump Date - 28 weeks



I am finally graduated! I also worked my first day as a dental hygienist yesterday! I'll be temping here in Utah till our little girl comes. After that we will probably stay here for a couple months till Joseph finds a job flying. We have been asked by a ton people where we think we will be moving and, to be honest, we give a different answer every time. We really have no clue! So if we give you an answer, it is probably because that was the state or country we were dreaming of that week. I would not take us too seriously haha. There is no way of knowing until he finishes his schooling, hours, and tests. I am excited for the unknown adventures ahead!

HOW FAR ALONG? 
28 weeks.. 3rd Trimester!!

WEIGHT GAIN
I don't know if I want to answer this one... but I will anyways. I have gained around 25 to 30 pounds haha it changes a little throughout the day.

SLEEP?
Ok I don't know if it is just third trimester or if I am doing something wrong but I try to sleep on our memory foam or with my big pregancy pillow and just cannot seam to feel comfortable! Plus I wake up to pee probably 3-6 times in the night. I try so hard not to have water before bed or drink it through the night, but if I go without water I feel like I've been in the Las Vegas desert without water for 72 hours slowly dying! So needless to say I always give in. 

BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK?
During my first day of work my little girl was attacking my patient! Ok maybe she wasn't attacking him, but she was definitely kicking and rolling around enough that my patient could feel her against his shoulder as I cleaned his teeth haha.

MOVEMENT:
This little girl is crazy! She moves so much that she wakes up Joseph in the middle of the night if I sleep close to him, my patient could feel her, and she moves so much that my belly is rarely a circle when sitting or lying down. My entire belly is usually shifting left, right, up, and down. We are starting to be able to tell what is her foot or hand or head and so on. 

FOOD CRAVINGS:
Sweets, fruit, and spicy anything

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QUEASY? 
I wouldn't say anything makes me queasy but I feel like I have gotten more and more picky again. I also have pretty bad acid reflex so I can't eat fast or too much at once.

WHAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO: 
Seeing her for the first time. Lately we have been thinking about what color eyes and hair she will have. Joseph was a blonde when he was young and then it went super dark. I am thinking she will come out dirty blonde and then it will go darker but probably not as dark as his hair. He thinks maybe bright blonde or dirty blonde.

Maternity Shoot at the Utah State Capitol

 My cute husband spent the day with me in Salt Lake City taking maturity and graduation photos for me. He is an amazing Instagram husband, turning into a legit photographer haha. I can barely wait to meet this little girl! I cherish every moment with her. Every little body change in me and every little kick I get so excited I sometimes forget that it isn't as exciting to others. Being a momma is a dream come true.

Bump Date - 23 weeks



I just took my written boards yesterday! I have been kinda MIA to the rest of the world because I have been studying so hard for the past 2 months. Hopefully now that that is finished I can start doing fun stuff again! I graduate in literally less than 2 weeks and I am so excited :)

HOW FAR ALONG? 
23 weeks

WEIGHT GAIN
15 pounds. I am still too stubborn to buy maternity pants because I feel like none of them are cute so if anyone has any suggestions! let me know!

SLEEP?
Apparently I am sleep talking like crazy. Joseph is even able to talk back and forth with me. I guess I have been saying some pretty funny things.
Over thanksgiving weekend we stayed the night at my parent's house and they have a memory foam top to the mattress and it helped me sleep so much better. It helped so much that we stole it and took it back with us to Utah haha. It barely even fit in the back seat! It is great because my hip will sink into the mattress when I sleep on my side and then my belly is supported. 

BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK?
The funniest moment this week was Joseph and the baby tapping back and forth at each other. She wasn't moving so Joseph poked her and she immediately punched back. So Joseph poked her again and she punched back. They did this back and forth over and over and then Joseph stopped for 5 minutes and there was nothing. They then went at it again. She is definitely a character.

MOVEMENT:
She loves to move at night when I am laying down and every time I eat as well.. she goes crazy!

FOOD CRAVINGS:
Taco Bell... still 

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QUEASY? 
Not really anymore! 

WHAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO: 
Mostly just meeting her. She is so fun already!

Bump Date - 19 weeks







GENDER!!
We are soooo excited to have a little girl! By the end we both felt super strong that it was a girl but I still had the ultrasound lady keep checking for like 15 minutes straight just to make sure haha.

HOW FAR ALONG? 
19 weeks

WEIGHT GAIN
5 pounds so far and I have a little bump.. not big enough to get maternity pants but big enough that literally none of my pants fit.

SLEEP?
I keep waking up multiply times in the night and I have some pretty crazy dreams. This daylight savings thing is something I used to look forward to but now I'm waking up at 5am and not able to go back to sleep haha.

BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK?
The best moment this week would have to be rather when we had the ultrasound or when Joseph felt the baby for the first time. I'd maybe say the ultrasound. I thought the highlight would be finding out the gender but to be honest I was just so overwhelmed with joy that she is healthy. They look at and measure literally everything. It was really calming to have everything normal. We both cried when we found out it was a girl. I cannot wait to meet her!

MOVEMENT:
I started feeling distinct movements at 17 weeks and joseph could feel her at 18! She really loves her barrel rolls at night time haha.. which makes it really easy to feel her. She also looooves kicking my pant line. I think she thinks my scrubs are a little too tight.. 

FOOD CRAVINGS:
Taco Bell.. it's actually rediculous haha. I can never think what to eat other than Taco Bell. I'm trying really hard to eat healthy but I give into Taco Bell probably every other day hahah. Whoops! 

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QUEASY? 
Pretty much everything that I don't feel like eating makes me feel sick honking about.. nothing all that specific.

WHAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO: 
I am trying sooo hard not to buy things. I'm just so excited to have a girl and get a ton of cute stuff. I want to start her nursery sooo bad! So I look forward to all the bite outfits and a cute nursery.

Bump Date - 15 weeks

HOW FAR ALONG? 
15 weeks 

WEIGHT GAIN:
 Definitely a bump is starting but it is very small. My pants all do not fit but in most of my dresses you still cannot tell I am pregnant. 

SLEEP?
I am literally always tired! And I have the most intense dreams. The other day I was so confused because I swore up and down that I had finished my class project, but in reality I hadn't even started it. I realized while searching through my computer for the material that it was in my dream that I worked so hard on my project. It felt so real that I honestly thought I had done it already!

BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK?
The best moment this week actually did not have much to do with being pregnant but it was our Canadian Thanksgiving! We have started a little tradition of where we invite a bunch of our friends over for Canadian thanksgiving. No one ever knows that Canadians have a different thanksgiving than Americans so our friends get very excited for their additional thanksgiving in October. We make a turkey and ham and make a couple other sides, but mostly everyone else brings the sides. This year we had 15 people! We had to borrow the church's tables to fit everyone. It was pretty funny looking having 3 people moving tables and chairs back and forth from the chapel at 10 pm haha. 

MOVEMENT:
I am determined to feel the baby! You might catch me holding onto my belly trying to feel SOMETHING. I feel a lot of movement but I cannot tell if it is just digestion or the baby or what!  

FOOD CRAVINGS:
Milk and spicy things! 

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QUEASY? 
Pretty much everything I feel like haha but definitely raw meat and fatty things.

GENDER:
We will find out in about a month! I am still thinking girl and Joseph doesn't know this week he says haha. He goes back and forth a little more than I do but I think he is still leaning towards boy.  

WHAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO: 
Oddly enough I am looking forward to the baby bump. I feel like I am in that awkward stage that people can tell I have a belly but they wouldn't dare ask me if I am pregnant. Im also at where things don't quite fit me but maternity things do not fit me either. I am so excited to be obviously pregnant!

BumpDate - 13 Weeks

HOW FAR ALONG? 
13 weeks as of Sunday! 

WEIGHT GAIN:
 A little already! I have heard that the first pregnancy that you aren't supposed to show early but I definitely feel like I am. 

SLEEP?
I feel like I literally could sleep for days! I go to bed early and wake up as late as I possibly can before being late for school. 

BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK?
Definitely when we got to see the baby! We went down to Vegas this weekend to see my sister before she leaves on her mission and my mom got me a groupon so that I could go get an ultrasound done! (apparently insurance only covers one and they are very expensive getting them done from a regular OB) Anyways we got to see the baby and it was moving like crazy! I am talking barrel rolls and leaping! 

MOVEMENT:
I cannot feel anything yet but the baby is definitely moving! Just still too little I guess 

FOOD CRAVINGS:
 I have been obsessing over caramel apples! I have to have one everywhere we go. Like at the mall the other day I bought a ridiculously expensive caramel apple because I just had to have it. And that is so not me! Other than that I feel like I have to eat what I feel like or else I will throw up.. but I don't crave a specific thing for a long time.. other than caramel apples haha. 

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QUEASY? 
Raw meat and lunch meat! I cannot look at or smell or touch it.

GENDER:
We won't be finding out till about 20 weeks we have decided. We have both been back and forth but right now Joseph has a feeling it is a boy and I have a feeling that it is a girl. But Joseph only said that after I said I thought it was a girl and he loves being on the other side of me just to make things fun I swear! He does that with sports all the time.. so I am not convinced on what Joseph really thinks it is. 

WHAT I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO: 
Not to throw up anymore haha. I am tired of always feeling sick and I have heard that around now it should start to calm down so I am crossing my fingers!

Puppy Love

My best friend and her husband just got the cutest puppy in the whole world! I couldn't pass up the opportunity of taking a couple pictures of the new family. He's a Aussie with the most beautiful/ softest fur, already super obedient, and full of love. Oh and don't forget about the chickens! haha hopefully one day this cute pup and those fun chickens will get along. They will be best of friends, they just don't know it yet. haha.
