Engagement/ 12 Weeks!

Now that I’ve got this thing started I am so excited to post. So why not 2 in one day just so we’re all caught up!

The first big announcement I have is that Brad & I are finally engaged! He completely surprised me on the evening of Mother’s Day, I came home from work to the sweetest note on the mirror and the perfect ring! He is really the most wonderful man and I cannot wait to spend my life with him. 

Ignore the background. He picked the sweetest way, as we love to write each other notes on the mirror.


A week later but hey we have an official engagement photo!! Thanks Wendy!

Today is actually the start of week 12! Last week of the 1st Trimester Woo Hoo
So this means I finally get to put my sweet chalkboard to use! I have been purposely holding off on all of the crafty Pinterest ideas I have discovered. Now I couldn’t be more excited to do them all 🙂

How far along? 12 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: our scale is a little weird it says 1lb in the morning and 2-3lbs at night (start 144) guess we’ll find out for sure at the next appointment in 2 weeks.
Maternity clothes? only 1 maxi dress so far (yes it’s actually from the maternity section) Hoping for another month in my clothes but I’m definitely going to need some bras soon. And I’m excited for leggings all the time!
Stretch marks? Nope. Using a preventive oil every night. Here’s to hoping it works!
Sleep: Pretty much over the excessive sleepiness. I still like to take naps or just lay down & rest in the late afternoons though. Getting up 2-3 times a night but sleeping well in between that
Best moment this week: Getting Engaged!!! 
Have you told family and friends: Yes! Still have a few more to tell but we are trying to tell people personally. Miss Anything? Sushi, Wine & drinks with friends. Of course now that I can’t have ’em I want ’em!
Movement: Nothing yet
Food cravings: Fruit, Salad, Belgian Waffles
Anything making you queasy or sick: Too much food at once (I can’t eat near as much as I used to/want to). Riding in the car especially right after I’ve eaten.
Have you started to show yet: A little bump so far – basically looks like I ate a few too many cupcakes. It definitely is bigger in the evening.
Gender prediction: Had a girl dream last night. But still hoping for a boy.
Labor Signs: No. Thank goodness I might freak out this early!!
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On! Of course! 🙂
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Except when I get these crazy awful headaches in the evenings and then I just want to hurt someone!
Weekly Wisdom: Keep working out! It really does make you feel better. Even if it’s harder and you’d rather be lazy.
Looking forward to: Getting an actual baby bump & finding out the gender! Then we can start shopping! As of now I’m currently “banned” from baby’s r us. Which is probably smart cause we really should be saving 🙂 

Oh and I can’t wait to dye my hair, the grow out is terrible, I just need some highlights so it wont be so obvious!
