What's Cookin'?

Today we are 13 weeks along!! 27 weeks to go...seems like forever, but I'm sure it will fly by. Robbie and I had another appointment today. We thought I was getting an ultrasound but no, no, no, apparently they only do a few of those (3-4 total). But, we did get to hear the heartbeat again!!! That little sucker was clocking in around the upper 130 beats per minute. And, we heard a loud WHOOSH. The doctor said it kicked!!! I can't wait until I'm holding that baby in my arms.....sigh.

So, what do y'all think it is? I think it's fun to speculate about it. Casey did the gold ring test on my belly and it came out to be a boy. Angela checked the Chinese lunar calendar for me and it came out boy. At our first ultrasound, the heartbeat was quite fast, which could mean a girl. At the last ultrasound, the heartbeat wasn't too fast anymore, sooo....?!?! Hmm... I can't wait to find out!! And we certainly will be finding out. There's NO WAY that we could wait. Not even so much for buying clothes or decorating the nursery, I just can't wait to KNOW and pick out a NAME!!! :)

Few randoms going on:

-I love being pregnant.
-I've totally decided to give the belly what it wants. There's no holding back.
-No matter how much I love being pregnant, or that we've seen our baby, or that we've heard its heartbeat twice, I never stop worrying. Worrying sucks.
-I feel like I have small little bump and I can't wait until it's huge!!! I don't like this in-between stage. People who don't know me probably just think I eat too much, haha!
-I've been craving carbs like crazy. Pizza! Pasta! Bread! Yumm!! And tostitos chips!
-I can't let myself get even the slighest bit of hungry or else I'm on my deathbed.
-No morning sickness yet. Ahhh! I can't believe I wrote that. I hope I don't jinx it...
-We think Laker knows I'm pregnant. He keeps laying IN MY LAP!! Or beside me with head on my belly. He's always been an affectionate dog, but has never fully cuddled IN MY LAP!! He's 50 lbs! Ha!
-I love reading pregnancy books!!!! I have 5 of them!! (Some were lent to me)
-Giving birth scares me to death. Holy cow. I refuse to even think about it until the date gets closer.

That's all for now... ;)


  1. I am just so happy for you! I loved being pregnant, too! It is just such an amazing time. I am happy you have not had morning sickeness!!! I love that you have a blog now, too! Keep writing! I love reading it and hearing how you are doing! xoxoxo

  2. I think it's a boy!!!! Robbie needs a little buddy!! & then #2 can be a girl, so she can have a big brother lol!! Pregnancy is so exciting! I'm glad you're enjoying it and it is AMAZING that you have had no morning sickness! Around 12 weeks is when mine ENDED, so you're probably in the clear! Your little bump is adorable! It's hard to believe there is a tiny human growing in there... In just a few weeks you'll be feeling him or her kicking you! :) The worrying part DOES suck! I was so happy when I reached 24 weeks; knowing the pregnancy was more viable then. I bet Laker does know that you're pregnant. Animals and little kids can usually sense those things. ;) As far as giving birth, I didn't worry too much with Christopher until the end, and then he was so big that the recovery wasn't pleasant. The giving birth part goes by fast and then it's over. Kiley was much smaller and I had hardly any pain at all. It was a wonderful and amazing experience! Watch the sugar and carbs so you don't have a 9 pounder, lol. I can't wait to follow your blog and your pregnancy journey! Keep on posting belly pics!
