Baby is the length of a Banana!
 
Baby is 20 weeks and 1 day!! We went in for our 20 week appointment yesterday and got to see her again, and got some amazing pictures!! It's my favorite when I get to see her little face, feet, and hands. She's just so lovely. 

She's moving like crazy in my tummy these days. I love to feel her wiggling around in there! And I love that Jacob can feel it now too! I love how his eyes light up when I tell him baby is kicking, and he just drops whatever he is doing so he can put his hand on my tummy. It's the cutest. 

So, we have her name. And I'm ready to share it with you all! I told my 3 year old nephew, Kharter, her name and he calls her Baby Bear. It's kind of the cutest thing ever. He brings me his old baby toys and says, "Baby Bear can have this.", "Baby Bear needs this, it was mine when I was a baby.", "Is that for Baby Bear?" Haha. I love it! So have you guessed her name yet?

Our Baby girl's name is....

Everyday I am more and more thankful to have such an amazing man in my life. I'm so blessed to be married to my best friend and the love of my life. I wish there were more ways for me to let him know how much I appreciate him and everything he does for me and our growing family. Here are a few things I am eternally grateful for....

-Thank you for the extra 10 minutes of snuggling every morning.
-Thank you for always reaching out to hold my hand.
-Thank you for texting me all throughout the day.

-Thank you for rubbing my back when you are the one that has worked all day, and deserve it way more.
-Thank you for always getting me candy at the store.
-Thank you for always driving.

-Thank you for our afternoon walks.
-Thank you for always opening the car door for me.
-Thank you for flirting with me like we are teenagers.
-Thank you for always being there for me.
-Thank you for making all my dreams come true.
-Thank you for sticking it out and watching horrible movies with me (even though I think they are awesome).
-Thank you for loving my family like you do.
-Thank you for being my best friend.
-Thank you for being so sexy. :)

I could go on forever in thanking you for every single thing you do that makes my life complete. You are the one I was meant for. And just like you said the other night. "I'm pretty sure God made me and you just so we could be best friends." You are my best friend, you are my love, you are my everything.

Boy or Girl?

Our little baby is a girl! We couldn't be more excited!!! 

We went and had an ultrasound done, and the technician confirmed that Baby is indeed a girl! It's such a wonderful feeling to know for sure what our little munchkin is! 

We are at 18 Weeks and she is the size of a sweet potato! 

At first Baby was rolled up in a little ball sleeping but soon she was moving around like crazy (like she always is when she's awake!) I love to watch her move on the screen just as much as I love feeling her move in my tummy. We got to do a 4D and see her face, and let me tell you....that girl has some cheekbones! Just like her mom, hehe! They are very noticeable now since she has practically no fat on her little face! We also got to see each arm, hand, leg, and foot. And see her heart up close and personal. It was amazing. And her heart beat continues to be a strong 150! I love it!

I'm so blessed to have this little family of mine, and I'm so impatient for December to get here so I can hold her in my arms! I love you so much my little baby girl!

We love the USA! So blessed to live here! 

This 4th of July is probably one of my favorites because it's the day I finally felt our little wiggle worm kick. Now I'm addicted to that feeling!!! It's like air bubbles popping in my stomach. I love it so much. Our little baby has stolen my heart and I'm just filled with love and excitement about everything!

We spent the 4th just running around town, and then when night fell Jacob took me out into the field behind our apartment and we watched fireworks on a quilt and did sparklers. It was great until the bugs attacked! Then we headed to the grass in front of our apartment and laid there and star gazed for awhile, well I did, Jacob was trying to figure out how to write with sparklers and catch it on camera. (As you probably know he wasn't able to figure it out this time!)

We had to cancel our appointment to see Baby this Saturday because Jacob has drill. But it's okay because now we have an appointment here in Bentonville tonight!!! We will officially know if Baby is a he or she tonight!! Meep! (the reason I scheduled it in Tulsa is so I could visit my bestie while there, but Jacob said he'd take me another weekend so it's all good!)

17 Weeks.


17 Weeks! Baby is the size of my open hand!

We had our 16 week appointment last week, and we found out what the gender "might" be! Eeep! I hope the Nurse Practitioner was right and that it doesn't change because I've already got it embedded in my mind! Our little baby was squirming and wiggling around like nobody's business. It brings tears of happiness to my eyes every time I see Baby moving around, it's pretty much the cutest thing ever. 

Now when it comes to symptoms, in my last post I was bragging about being "normal" again. Not so much anymore. When I have heart-burn it's the worst thing ever. Not even Tums will help me out, oh it's miserable. But it only comes around every once in awhile which is a good thing. 2nd, My hair is falling out like crazy. Jacob saw my huge hair wad (sorry TMI!) after I got out of the shower the other night and he almost fell out. He's pretty sure I will have no hair soon. And 3rd, yesterday morning I woke up with one of the worst Charlie Horses I've ever had. OHH I hate those things, some of the worst pain I've ever experienced! I hope there are no more! And don't even get me started on my tore up gums and sensitive teeth.....wah!

After a week and a half of trying I finally have an appointment up in Northwest Arkansas. But I'm not liking them too much right now. They refused to schedule me an ultrasound for my 20 week appointment (Hello, have you ever heard of being kind and letting a couple find out the gender of their baby at the time that everyone else does?) They said that I couldn't do that because it's my "first" appointment. (No it's my 4th thank you very little). UGH!  I'm so glad that I'm not going to have to switch doctors anymore! 

On a positive note, I got an appointment at an ultrasound place in Tulsa, and should know Baby's gender (for sure) next Saturday!!! Meep!

14 weeks, Baby is the size of a lemon!

 Can I just say that the 2nd Trimester is Heaven on Earth compared to the 1st Trimester. When I discovered I was pregnant, I thought man this is easy, no sickness, no aches, nothing! That lasted 2 weeks and then bring on the "ALL DAY" nausea. One of the worst things I've ever experienced. Everyday I made the vow that I would never get pregnant again if this is what I have to go through everyday for the rest of pregnancy. Awful, just plain awful! 

Okay, well fast-forward 4 weeks from the first day of sickness and I have felt pretty good, goodbye nausea! (So there is still a chance for Baby #2, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here). Now days I feel just like my normal old self, just hungry all the time and the worst thing is that none of my clothes fit (which they haven't fit for awhile now, ahem bloating....). Seriously though, I don't know how I fit in them before, so tiny.

OKAY! I'm done with whining for now! I'm so thrilled to be pregnant, and it's driving me crazy to know the gender so I can start preparing for this little munchkin! What gender do you think Baby is?

If we are friends in real life, on Facebook, or Instagram.....you already know, but if not....we are having a baby! I'm so excited!

Baby Allen will be here in December 2014.

We had our first doctor's appointment on April 30th, when I was at 8 weeks in Virginia. We got to see and hear our baby's heartbeat for the first time and it was magical. I couldn't believe that this was actually happening and that Jacob and I are going to be parents! 

We had our 2nd doctor's appointment on June 2nd, when I was at 13 weeks. We had to switch doctors of course because we are back in Arkansas (which is such an inconvenience, and we are going to have to switch again after the next appointment, blah!).....we move too much I've decided!

My mom was able to go to this appointment with us and we got to see our little baby again! Baby was sleeping but Jacob asked the doctor to push my tummy around to wake he/she up. The doctor happily obliged and I swear my heart almost stopped when I saw our tiny baby move his/her arms and then kick his/her legs.....I saw the tiniest and cutest baby foot in that moment and I've been day dreaming about it ever since. I'm so glad Jacob asked the doctor to move Baby around, it was one of the best moments in my life. 

I look forward to blogging all about my pregnancy experience and I can't wait to continue once Baby gets here!
