The "real" bump and the 7 dwarfs

 I read this blog and this girl compared pregnant women to the Snow White's 7 dwarfs, which is funny and kind of true for me! The first few weeks I was pregnant I would have called myself "SNEEZY," because I stopped taking my allergy meds and that's all I was doing. The next few weeks I became "SLEEPY" I literally fell asleep in my chair at work! Then who decides to grace me next...."GRUMPY" lol with these hormones going crazy my emotions have been up and down. Since this pregnancy is all new to me I have become "DOC" trying to diagnose any new symptoms that come on! Then comes "DOPEY," I can't lie I have had my moments of being forgetful and a  little out of it! As far as being "BASHFUL" hmmm I tend to be shy anyways and actually I feel kind of the opposite these days, so maybe that one doesn't completely apply yet. And now being in my 2nd Trimester, I guess you could say I'm "HAPPY" I love feeling like I'm alive! So there you have it me as all 7 dwarfs!
Anyways I have had a good couple weeks but it seems that in the last week and a half I have had a growth spurt! I cannot tell you how much hungrier I am now, it's insane! I want to eat all the time! I'm usually going to bed hungry thinking about what I am going to eat for breakfast the next day...yeah it's pretty sad! I took some pics this week but I really feel the camera is not doing justice to how big Im starting to get! But seriously there is a bumpy there!!! I wore my first pair of maternity jeans, and I love them! They are so comfortable I can tell I will be wearing these quite often!
Then to top off the week, my best friend Kara came to visit me which was so much fun! We literally just picked back up from where we left off! Nothing like Timeless conversations! We also made the World's best Chocolate Chip cookies! I must say they were pretty good!


FOOD CRAVINGS: These days my cravings are influenced by commercials and people, if I see someone eating Taco Bell all of the sudden that sounds good to me and I want Taco not a good thing for me!
WHAT'S NEW: I'm having weird side pains, belly button pains (Everything is stretching and growing making room for the baby :) my veins are becoming a lil more noticeable...kinda grosses me out

2nd Trimester

Im in my 2nd Trimester and boy do I feel great! I love that I feel like myself again, for a minute there I didn't think I was ever going to feel normal, which is understandable but I just felt miserable most days and completely drained. Don't get me wrong, I'm still more tired than usual but I find myself wanting to cook again and actually clean and do laundry (yes I really did miss doing those things) I heard you regain your energy back but after the last few weeks that beacon of hope was a lil small! This is probably the first week I haven't had nausea everyday. Last week we had our annual Master's Commission Conference, which messed me up a little. As much as I tried to rest, there was still the stress of getting everything done which caused me to be nauseous and give me an eye twitching problem for about a week. Which is why I didn't post week 13! But here we are now in week 14
After conference we took our team away on a retreat out in the middle of nowhere and it was amazing! 

When my husband and I got married it was out in the country and this place kinda reminded me of that. So peaceful, relaxing, and nothing but gorgeous views. Really we didn't do much but reflect on what God had done and is doing in our lives, it was absolutely what we needed!

On Tuesday we went to the Dr. and heard the heartbeat, I wanted to cry but surprisingly I held it in. (These days you never know when those tears might come.) I couldn't believe how loud and fast it was beating, so surreal! I'm getting more excited every week! In 6 weeks we will find out if it's a boy or girl but until then I will be that lil girl who is so excited to go to Disneyland she can't sleep!

14 Weeks and 3 days
Weight: 108
Food Cravings: hmm... nothing extreme except everytime Im at a gas station or grocery store a bag of cheetos seems to come home with me :) (which is funny cuz I never ate cheetos before)
Morning Sickness: None
What's New: Clothes not fitting, almost can't hide the bump anymore (I'll post pics next time!)
