23 Weeks


How Far Along? 23 Weeks
Total Measurements/Weight Gain? I’m not getting any smaller…
Maternity Clothes? Absolutely
Sleep Schedule? Not as crazy as it has been. Elsie, my little jumping bean, is very active when I lay down for bed and early in the morning. She has been much more active lately, but I love every second of it. Her jumping around is starting to make me jump around. It can be pretty intense! Steven is back on his normal work schedule which means he is now home during the night. He is able to feel her and see her moving around more since she is very active at night.
Best Moment This Week? Being able to see movement just looking at my belly. It is the craziest, yet coolest thing ever. I can’t believe how in love I am with this baby girl already. If she only knew.
Movement? Very much so!
Food Cravings? This week I would have to say it has been Hot & Sour Soup!
Queasy or Sick? Nope
Gender? Girl, Girl, Girl
Labor Signs? No, just growing pains.
Symptoms? Heartburn. It’s apparently not going away anytime soon! Still tired, but not like I have been. Achy feet that are killing me by the end of the day!
Belly Button In or Out? Surprisingly, still an innie!
Wedding Rings On or Off? Still on, but slightly snug.
Happy or Moody? A bit more moody this past week than I have been…Sorry Hubby! :)
Looking Forward To? Putting together a registry for the baby shower & planning the nursery. I’m very indecisive, so this is going to be tough!

22 Weeks

22 weeks and growing!

22 weeks and growing!

How Far Along? 22 Weeks
Total Measurements/Weight Gain? Weight Gain 😉
Maternity Clothes? Yes, some of the smaller ones that I purchased are now getting a little snug.
Sleep Schedule? I am ready for bed pretty early in the evening. Anyone that knows me knows that this is so unlike me. I am such a night owl! Then, I usually wake up between 2-3am and am awake for a few hours before snoozing a bit more before my alarm goes off for work.
Best Moment This Week? Enjoying Christmas with family and receiving sweet little baby items. So exciting to think that this time next year Elsie will be running, no, actually crawling around!
Movement? Lots. Seemed like there wasn’t as much for a bit, but now she has her own little schedule.
Food Cravings? Not really any crazy cravings. Still enjoying my juices and maybe craving sweeter things a bit more.
Queasy or Sick? Nope. Not at all.
Gender? Still a girl :) My Nanny says it’s going to be a boy though… :/
Labor Signs? No, but I woke up yesterday feeling as if I grew overnight. I have the sensation that a bowling ball is just resting in my pelvis. Just some pressure, but from what I have been told it is pretty normal around this time.
Symptoms? Still some heartburn, strange sleep schedulule, achy feet. Whoever said you have more energy in the second trimester was wrong! I have been so tired lately. I swear, if I sit down, I am falling asleep!
Belly Button In or Out? Still an innie, but Steven says it is getting ready to pop out any day now!
Wedding Rings On or Off? Still on, but slightly snug.
Happy or Moody? Happy Happy Happy
Looking Forward To? Starting some birthing classes and somewhat preparing things for the nursery. Steven and I are house hunting and think we have found “the one”, so fingers crossed for us! Hopefully it works out as we hope it will! 2014 is going to be a great year! So many things going on for our little family and many changes happening in the next few months, but those are things I will write about in abother post! I hate “New Years Resolutions”, but I am hoping to write more on our blog. I have lots I want to write about, it’s just that I gotta stay awake to do it! :) Cheers to the new year!

19 Weeks

17 week bump

I absolutely can’t believe I am in week 19 already! In some ways it has flown by, but at the same time, I am so ready to meet our little Elsie! From the very beginning I had a feeling that our little love nugget would be a girl. I feel terrible that I have not posted weekly updates like I originally intended to, but it’s never too late to begin. So, to answer a few questions…

How Far Along? 19 weeks
Total Measurements/Weight Gain? Let’s just say that I am measuring where I should be at 19 weeks. Doc said so! My boobs have grown tremendously… I swear that’s where at least half the weight has gone.
Maternity Clothes? Yes. Maternity pants are (by far) much more comfy than any sweatpants or yoga pants I have worn!
Sleep Schedule? Waking up every few hours to go to the bathroom and I get very tired during the day

It’s official, Baby Wojo coming soon!

Well, after nearly six years of marriage, we decided our dog, Olive, needed a playmate. She doesn’t exactly get along well with other animals, so a baby it is!  Here is the first sneak peek of Baby Wojo. We created this blog as a way to keep family and friends updated that aren’t as close to us as we would like.  We are so excited! Baby Wojo should make an appearance around May 3, 2014. This is the start of our journey into Parenthood. Thank you for being a part of it!
