Baby Sunshine

As you may have noticed, I stopped blogging for a good month or two.
I have been busy....growing a baby in my belly. I'm PREGNANT!

Hubby and I are VERY EXCITED and for the past three months I have been on cloud 9 dreaming about this little nugget in my belly. Words cannot even explain this joy.

Baby Sunshine at 10 weeks and 4 days
Do you see our Baby Sunshine? Baby is sleeping on it's left side facing us. You can see the head, a bit of the torso, and the little legs all the way to the left. We were able to see the little flicker of the heartbeating and we saw our baby wiggle around a lot.  I can't stop staring at my beautiful baby.


How far along? 11 weeks
Total weight gain: 3 pounds since the start. Not to shabby for someone eating all this junk.
Maternity clothes? I have already worn the heck out of my Belly Bands. This bloat is no joke. I've also purchased two pairs of maternity jeans because my old jeans don't like to cooperate with me. Buttons are impossible. Plus, I wanted to get the most wear out of them. They are AMAZING! I may never go back to regular jeans again.
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: It varies but I'm sleeping pretty well on most days.
Best moment this week: Seeing our baby on the ultrasound and FINALLY getting to tell everyone.
Miss Anything? COFFEE and Sushi! I also missed out on Coachella this year. Boo.
Movement: We got to see our baby move but I don't feel anything yet.
Food cravings: Everything that's bad for me. Burgers, fries, red meat, and cake. I also enjoy fruit.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Noddle soup, veggies, and certain smells. Disgusting.
Gender predictions: I've had dreams about having a boy.
Labor Signs: Nope
Symptoms: Nausea in the morning and evening. Tender Ta-Ta's.
Belly Button in or out? In but belly button ring is out.
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm pretty happy but I am a slave to moodiness a lot of the time.
Looking forward to: EVERYTHING! I am very excited for my nausea to go away and my belly to start showing!
