21 wks....

I am a slacker at doing this every week, but but better to do it sometimes then never I guess.
This week, Baby is the size of: the length of a carrot
How far along? 21 wks 6 days
Due date: August 17th
Total weight gain/loss: 8lbs do I have to tell?
Maternity clothes? I could fit, but don't like the look of them so I just wear my jeans with the elastic trick and then baggy shirts. Haha.
Sleep: It has been ok. Not the greatest, but I'll take what I can.
Best moment this week: Hearing her heartbeat at the Dr. office.
Movement: She loves to move at bedtime and all through out the day. I don't think she likes the seat belt. I always get kicked in the car.
Food cravings: I have been eating alot of strawberries with cool whip.
Symptoms: Belly muscles ache, back aches. Low energy. But doing pretty good.
Gender: GIRL
Labor Signs: No thank goodness
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
Feeling toward Pregnancy: Excited, but feels like time is flying by now.
What I miss: Sharing my pregnancy with my mom. This has been the hardest thing ever! I was with and around my mom the whole time while I was pregnant with Haize and so I'm having a hard time even going shopping for this baby. I hope I can get a grip and get some stuff made for her though.
What I am looking forward to: Getting her room started, but it's far from that yet. We are working on our basement and that has to be done first. I need to get Jared to kick it in gear faster. Haha.
Milestones: My Grandma DeLowa got Baby Haylie's first quilt made. It is from fabric my mom had saved for me for if I ever had a baby girl. It will be a special quilt.

Im sorry I still don't have any pictures to post. Ugh I haven't wanted to take any, but I know if I dont I will be so mad at myself later. That will be my goal this week is to take a picture of this growing belly.

Wow! It has been way too long since I posted, but I wanted to share that I am pregnant and that I felt right from the moment I found out that this was a baby being sent to me not just from Heavenly Father, but from my Mom. I miss her so much and I have this huge feeling that this is from her to help me get through this hard time in my life. At first I wasn't even excited. I had feelings of how am I going to deal with being pregnant on top of just losing my Mom and still trying to get over it. It took up until I found out what this baby was to make it more "real". Now I feel like I'm finally really pregnant. I know this sounds weird, but now I'm all excited. The whole day I found out, which was yesterday, I just felt so much at peace and so happy inside. I know my mom spend the day with me close by. :)
Anyways so I am now in my 16th week in pregnancy and found out it's a Baby Girl. We are so excited and couldn't be happier. I saw some girls do this little questioinaire each week and though it looked fun. I know I'm a little late starting to do it each week, but I figure better late than never.
This week, Baby is the size of: an avocado
How far along? 16wk 2days
Due date: August 20th (ish)
Total weight gain/loss: at 14wks 0lbs gained
Maternity clothes? Yes, I have bought some, but NO they do not fit yet. Thank goodness. I love wearing my sweat pants though instead of Jeans. They are getting a little too tight.
Sleep: It's ok, but not great. I already have to wake up 2 times a night to pee.
Best moment this week: Finding out my baby is going to be a girl.
Movement: Pretty sure I have felt the baby move a few times now. I love it when you can feel them move.
Food cravings: I have craved Mexican food quite a bit.
Symptoms: My back already has issues or my hip, proably both. Tired.
Gender: GIRL
Labor Signs: No thank goodness
Belly Button in or out? In
Feeling toward Pregnancy: Getting more excited about it.
What I miss: My all through the night sleeping and not having back pain.
What I am looking forward to: Going to buy something girly this weekend in St. George
Milestones: First feeling of the baby moving. Name is picked.

I will start working on taking a weekly picture.
