13 Weeks

I thought i'd document a few pregnancy milestones as we approach them. For me, 13 weeks is a big milestone. The sickness has gone away, getting energy back, and kind of officially feeling pregnant. Its the last official week of my first trimester, so i thought i'd document a few moments that either were signs of me getting pregnant or major OMG i'm pregnant moments:

- Well, i think we all figured out my "Out-Yoga-ed" post might have been foreshadowing. That was the day before i found out i was pregnant. I didn't think anything of it, just that i was seriously out of shape. Nope, let's thank Jellybean for embarrasing me in Yoga Class

- First day of morning sickness was in Palm Springs with my family. I told my parents that i felt seasick and dizzy and starving all at the same time. My mom and dad smiled and said, thats morning sickness and made me a bagel. ha.

- Over Easter, the "Easter Bunny" brought me two baskets, one for me and one for Jellybean. Tear!

- One morning, i woke up at 4:30am to do the usual potty break... I'm usually up 2-3 times a night for this. Anyway, i couldnt go back to sleep and realized why... I was absolutely STARVING at 4:30am. How could this be possible? So my sweet husband got up and made me a large bowl of cereal. He's just the best!

- Ben and I were on the way to a nice work event. I was excited bc it was a buffet. How sad is that. Anyway, we got in traffic on the way there and was so hungry I got a case of the "Dry Heaves". Yes, the Dumb and Dumber moment in real life. Poor Ben just turned down the music and drove faster. Disgusting!

- Ben and I spent about an hour in "Buy Buy Baby"... a Bed Bath and Beyond for all Baby stuff. After the woman showed him the Bugaboo stroller that has adjustable shocks, he looked at me and said, It's time to go. Ha!

- No real weird cravings yet, but Chinese food, Pickles, and Beans and Rice from Mexican restaurants have all been top of the list these days. I have even asked for a second serving of beans and rice at Mi Cocina. I have not been able to look at asparagus, the thought and smell of them creeps me out.

- Last week, i started getting on the workout schedule in the mornings with Ben again. I ate a little cereal before i went bc i knew i'd get hungry. After the eliptical machine and some arm weights, i got back to my car and started the heaves again bc i was so hungry. I quickly drove myself to the bagel shop and devoured it in literally 3 minutes flat. There goes the point of that workout.

- My Favorite "Mocktail". Equal Parts Cranberry Juice, Pineapple Juice, Orange Juice, and a splash of Sprite. Its absolutely fabulous!

- The Bump. I think in the past 3 weeks i've finally seen a substantial bump. It no longer looks like i've eaten a cheese burger, it now looks like the beginnigs of the bump. Jeans dont fit, shorts can fit with a rubber band around the button, shirts arent long enough anymore. So you can imagine how fun it is getting dressed these days!!

13 weeks and Counting. More milestones to come.

We're ready for our Close Up

Here's our most recent Sonogram Picture of my darling Jellybean. By the way, Jellybean derives from my dad saying my first sonogram looked like a little Jellybean and somehow the its become our loving reference for our baby. So, as you hear me speak and write about Jellybean as if its a normal thing, just go with it. We promise it wont end up in the given name somewhere, like Benjamin Jellybean etc.

This is 12 Weeks. No Gender sightings yet. We're very anxious to find out if Jellybean is Blue Rasberry or Cotton Candy flavored! ha. Terrible mom joke.

I know it looks just like a blob, but work with me people, i'm already a biased mommy. Tell me its cute!

So, really... where have we been

I've been here for the past 3 months. No literally. between here and the ladies room.

Ben's been here, while i've been there. He decided to rip up the yard and replant everything while i was stuck inside for the majority of our spring. He's done a fabulous job and am thankkful for my beautiful plants this spring.

Spreading mulch and takin names.

So its official, the reason for our strange destinations for the past 3 months is bc The Brewers are Having a Baby! Its True... Our little Jellybean Brewer is Due November 29th. Yes, the Monday after Thanksgiving. We sure know how to pick an inconvenient date. But nonetheless, we're absolutely thrilled. Here's our first Mommy/ Baby Picture together. This was after our first Dr. Appt that we got the thumbs up and i think you can see i cant control the smile.

So enjoy this blog as it takes on a new life as we adjust to the thrills and drills of becoming parents. I apologize for the 3 month hiatus, but truly, i was lucky enough to get a meal on the table no less blog. But, i promise to keep this up to date as our family grows.
