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.
