Weird craving #1

Today I woke up and just instantly wanted butter. I wanted a nice hot cup of melted butter. Mmmmm... Doesn't that sound soo good? Ha. So James and I decided, well, I decided what I want our nursery to be if we have a boy, MONKEYS!!! I registered for the set I want if anyone would like to look. I think it's so stinkin' cute! I love it :) We have 4 days until we go to VEGAS!! Yay! And then 8 days till our ultrasound!! Yay!!!! We get to know if its a boy or girl on that day :) Ok, I think that's all I have to say.. Lol. I will have James take a belly pic tomorrow.. hopefully.. Gotta find some batteries :)

Weight gain

I'm really not shy about my weight, even if I was huge! So at my last appointment (last week) my doc told me to gain 1 pound a week until my next appointment so that almost 5 pounds i need to gain. So far... in one week, I've gained 2 pounds! And I haven't even been TRYING to! So I weigh 126 now and I started at 120. I love 3-4 pounds when my morning sickness was bad. So I think I'm doing well for being 18 weeks :) I may even have to slow down.. But I cant see myself gaining much weight throughout the pregnancy :)

I had to show off my nails :D I LOVE THEM!

10/6 appointment

My appointment went well. We asked if we could possibly have an ultrasound that day, but I have to wait till I'm 20 weeks, just like everyone else, sadly. Lol. So my ultrasound is on Oct. 30th. We will be going to Vegas Oct. 26th - 29th, just for a vacation. We haven't ever had a real vacation, so we want to take one before we have the baby :) Anyways, So the doc kept us waiting 40 mins again.. she did on our first appointment with her... Ugh. Annoying!! I told her I am pretty much set on no for an epidural and that I will not take narcotics. So at least she knows I would rather go without.. For now. Lol. I don't think I have much else to say about it! I will keep thinking about it through the day and update later. My next Dr appointment is on 11/6 :)

Hello all you blog readers.. which there probably isn't many! Any who :P So lets update.. My belly button it starting to not be as deep. I should take a picture of it. Lol. My feet are swollen once in a while. I think that depends on how much cleaning I've been doing.. If I'm not cleaning, I'm sitting on my rump watching tv :D I LOVE fruit lately. My day will be ruined if I don't eat any fruit. My fav lately is oranges. That's probably because that the only fruit I have. I'm sure my fav fruits would be what ever I can get my mits on to! Mmm.. And I've been craving squash. I've been craving it for a while now but I always forget to buy one.. Silly, I know. Mmm... and pot roast..... I'm going to make my self drool! James made a roast a few weeks back with carrots and potatoes.. Sooooo good! Yum. Oh! Sherridan bought me a pregnancy organizer! I love it! I've been so afraid to write in it because its so cute! And then I assigned a pen for it so all the writing would be the same.. But I forgot and then since I was so paranoid about my writing being perfect, I messed up so many times! Ugh. And now I just don't care so I can be like a normal person and just write! Its very handy though. It has places where you write all the numbers you need and use everyday and numbers you need to call during labor and things you need to do before hand. It tells you what you should prepare during what times. Its pretty much 'The' pregnancy organizer! Helps me out with a lot of things :) So on Monday we have our second appointment with my doctor. And on that day we will be able to schedule our ultrasound to find out the gender! Yay! Last appointment I had I forgot to make a list of things to ask my doc, so we just kind of talked abut general things. I felt kind of dumb.. But I swear! Everyone forgets everything they want to ask as soon as they are in the office! .... At least I always do.. So I've been making a list (The organizer has a list of things to ask the doc too!) and I will hopefully be well prepared for this next appointment! :) I've also figured out that the more trips you make to the bathroom (the more water you drink) the better you feel. I tend to drink a lot more water then the daily recommended amount. Oh! And I eat straight, non-flavored vitamin c just as a treat :) Pop one in, chew it up and enjoy! (DO NOT TRY THIS IS YOU CANNOT STAND SOUR THINGS!!!) I love it. Alright, I could go on forever, but this is a long enough blog! I will update about my appointment so check in Monday after 5! 16 weeks today! 24 weeks to go!
