Home sweet home...

Even if its only for 12 hours!

With New Years Just around the corner, I wanted to wish everyone a healthy prosperous 2012, filled with Love, Joy and comfort. For all my single friends looking for love, give the kind of love you want to receive! For all my friends who are in limbo and lost, god will light the way once you open your heart and forgive!

Thank you to my husband, he has given me the best gift in 2011, a new house, a new car, a little baby!! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect life!

Week 11..

I know I'm a little late, but I wanted to post updates of my week 11. This photo was taken the day before my week 11.. So technically it's a photo @ 10 week 6 days.

The photo was taken at a baby shower/going away party I threw for my friend. my brother came by and set up a photo booth and my sister made all the desserts and provided props! I love my family!!! They've been such a huge support since I got preggos and their excitement means the world to me! Oh little McNugget.. You are so loved by your family!

What a hectic week it was! My mom was not well and neither was my grandmother, I spent most of my week spending time with my mom and helping her out.

Anyway, I wish you all a Merry Christmas! We r in PA with my husbands family and it's nice to get some r&r!

10 weeks, 1 day!

Heres a bump picture!!

Well.. 10 weeks and I'm pretty round!

I can't believe its 10 weeks already!!!

Gained 6 lbs total. Not bad!

Yesterday we had a double date at Katsuya! My favorite place! Ate mostly cooked stuff, 5 baked crab rolls. Bring on the seafood!!!

I'm not really craving anything, I'm trying really hard to eat healthy but I ate two cheeseburgers at in&out last week and literally went into food coma!! Now I'll try to eat in moderation. The problem about eating is, I'm not full so I keep having to snack!!

That's it for now!

The pants no longer button

So I stopped buttoning my pants, and I'm ok with that.

Is it shameless?

I did buy a pair of $10 stretch jeans at forever and It fits.. It zips.. It even buttons, but I can't sit down...

So luckily my cousin Linda sent me these awesome tummy sleeves and told me to use a hair tie as an extension. Viola, instant comfort.

Skinny stretch jeans are def better than regular. They're softer and more comfy.

Also, this is depressing.. But I'm no longer a size 0.. Actually, I should say,
I'm no longer able to zip my size 0 work skirts. I can wear the work pants unbuttoned with a tummy sleeve but no more skirts.

Fyi, It's very traumatizing.

Week 9.. Christmas time is here!

We are getting very excited for Christmas!!!

On Wednesday, my husband came home with a little gift for the baby!

Here is a little video of him surprising me.. you can see my little gut.. not quite a bump.. more like a GUT.

What kind of changes?? Well, foods... I'm trying really hard to eat healthy- but the little McNugget doesn't seem to get full off of fruits, veggies and stuff. it wants cheeseburgers. Last week I ate Cheeseburgers 5 days in a row.

I feel like that commercial where the kids paying soccer dressed like a burger. weight gain.. 6lbs Total. I'm a whale, But I love every minute of being pregnant

Gobble Gobble my little fat turkey is Happy TODAY!

So we went in to get some blood worked up, and while we were sitting there... Freddy our amazing Dr's Assistant said, "you guys have time to have an ultrasound?"

silly little question. so here we are... poking around and the doctor says, "lets see if we can hear the heart beat.. " Last week we only saw its little heart fluttering.. but this time, we heard it and it made everything seem so REAL. And when I started asking questions about the baby.. the heartbeat went faster and stronger!! it was cute when the doc said, "look.. baby can hear you. its all excited when you talk".

such a happy time for us!

happy early thanksgiving!

Highlight of my weekend...

Happy One week of finding out we're expecting!!!

SInce we found out that we're expecting, we've been slowly telling people. Most people are SUPER excited for us which makes me happy!

This weekend, I ventured out for the first time, we celebrated Vrey's Big 28!! Here are some photos of the girls out!

Lets see.. Some noticeable changes...

I had my first baby dream... I dreamt that I had a baby and after a few days, I realized that the hospital sent me home with the wrong baby... So i removed the baby (with the car-seat), left Him (yes, in my dream it was a boy) on the trunk of my car and went shopping. I do remember calling my husband to tell him that we had the wrong baby and I didn't want it anymore. when I returned from Nordstrom with tons of Shopping bags... the baby was gone. Someone had taken the baby and left their 2-3 year old sitting on my trunk. He called me Mama and tried to hold my hand. I believe I left it sitting at the bus stop and went home.

I woke up feeling like a terrible person. I do believe that I had this dream because I've been helping my girlfriend date online. I spent a good hour letting people down and I think because of it, I rejected my baby. oops. I will now answer emails in the morning.

cravings: rice, sauteed spinach, salted olives.. mexican candy.. tamarind.. salty plums and water (I'm thirsty ALL Day long). I do prefer ice water with a straw instead of cold water bottles.

How do our dogs react??? ummm just look at this photo:

yes, theres a slight bump. I can't figure out if it's a "baby bump" or if I'm just getting chubby. Today at the Salty plum store, the baby wished that my baby is "healthy, strong, and that he will do well in school and become successful in life" It made me very happy to hear it!!

Our baby will look like WHAT??

Last night, my husband and I made an attempt to see what our future peanut will look like!

I can't decide if these baby pictures are creepy or cute. either way..

Baby Gender Predictor

According to the Chinese Gender Pregnancy Calendar, We'll be expecting a boy. lol.

We calculated my Age and the Month of conception, the site says they're 90% accurate so lets see what happens in the next few months! Whatever God decides to bless us with, we'll be happy!!

Currently, I've gained about 2 lbs since my first visit in October... On average, I'm about 110 lbs. We will start a walking around the lake for exercise but all I want to do is sleep. I get excited when 9 pm rolls around so I can get to bed and I'm up around 7am.

Looks Like My +1 is now a +2.

Well.. Looks like we did it!

We were not expecting this. At all!! Actually, we made the effort to Prepare us to Concieve. On Oct. 20th we went to interview an OBGYN. She suggested we start "Enjoying" the process and told me not to come back until January. Little did I know, we were already pregnant.

SoooOOoo last friday, at Katsuya we enjoyed about $300 worth of sushi and a cocktail. I'm pretty sure I've already poisoned the little jelly bean growing in my belly.. but I was starving and almost dying for sushi. luckily its the last Sushi I'll have for the next 8 months... luckily it was the best meal ever!!

Now we should've known I was pregnant when I ordered 4 appetizers, 2 rolls, a couple of Robatas and dessert.. all for myself.

following dinner, on saturday at BJ's I ate a salad, a mini pizza, a plate of chicken wings and a pazookie.. starved. The waitress even asked if I was eating for 2...

On sunday i woke up and felt queasy. Josh went to get breakfast and came home with a pregnancy test...

Test 1. pregnant.
Test 2. Pregnant

so looks like we're having a baby!!

If you're wondering.. My husband is SOooOoo Excited he tried to buy a crib on sunday morning.. instead I let him call everyone to announce that he's a daddy to be. we spent the entire day telling immediate family!

During our first ultrasound I met my new doctor (He requested to be my OBGYN because he's an experts for mommies like me!) How can I pass on a doctor who's begging me to be his patient! After one meeting with him, we both agreed that he is the best doctor for our little baby!

Our little Jelly bean is 5 weeks 4 days old!
