10 weeks Pregnant!!

Hi Lovelies!!! 

This week I am 10 weeks pregnant! We had our first ultrasound this past Wednesday and baby was measuring 11 weeks 1 day with a heart rate of 160bmp. Our official due date is now August 18th, but since I will be having a repeat c-section I will have the baby the week before.

Everything looked great on the ultrasound. Baby V 2.0 was wiggling around and moving his/hand hand. It was just so cute.

Later on I will be adding bump photos and I will be adding information from babycenter.com.

How far along:  

I'm 10 weeks 5 days

Total weight gain:

I think I have gained about 5 pounds so far.

Maternity clothes:

No right now, but I imagine that I will be in them soon!
 
Stretch marks:

None

Sleep:

Sleep seems to be improving. I just need to get to bed much earlier.

Best moment of the week:

Seeing the baby on the ultrasound and seeing how excited The little is to become a big sister.



Miss anything:

Absolutely nothing.

Movement:

None yet and I cannot wait to feel this Little One moving around. 

Food cravings:

Popcorn, which I finally had yesterday.

Anything making you queasy:

Every morning I wake queasy and I go to bed feeling queasy.

Have you started to show yet:

Yes, definitely starting to show more this week.

 Gender:

Unknown and we will be finding out.

Labor signs:

None

Belly button (in or out):

In
Weddings rings on or off:

Happy or moody:

Some day I am happy and then some days I am very moody. It just depends on the day.

Eating: Nothing right now. I did eat some cheese and crackers earlier.

Thinking: Right now I am thinking about my To Do list that seems to grow and grow every day. And, I'm also thinking about my first ultrasound which is on Wednesday. I'm excited and nervous all at the same time!!

Listening to: I'm actually listening to the show that I am watching on Netflix.

Watching: I'm watching Parenthood on Netflix. I actually just discovered this show a few days ago and so far I am loving every episode.

Ways to Better Your Marriage in 2015

Hi Lovelies!

Paul and I have been married for 5 years (although we have been together for 21 years). so we aren't newlyweds anymore. We have a great marriage, that is full laughter, happiness, and love. However, I know there are ways to make it better than it already is. So, I have decided that I would share ways in which Paul and I can better are marriage and actually follow through because we all want a better marriage.

Five Ways to Better Your Marriage

1. Date your husband.

It's so easy to get up with our daily lives, being parents, taking classes, eat dinner, and go to bed. Find a reliable babysitter and go to dinner and movie. Spend time with each other, talk about current events, and just spend time together, even if it's an at home date night. Just be together!!!

2. Eat dinner together at the dinner table.

This is something that we need to work on (even as a family). Lately we have been eating in the living room in front of the TV, and this is not good at all. Sit at the table, talk about your day and just be together. 

3. Go to church together.

We really need to work on this, especially as a family. Going to church strengthens your relationship. This is the time to worship with each other and with God. 

4. Pray together.

I believe prayer is incredibly powerful  and has so much value on marriage. This can be challengeing at first but it is well worth it!!

5. Go on an adventure together.

This is something that we can do together and as a family. Just takes a trip to the mountains, or find a babysitter and stay in a local hotel, something that you can do just the two of you. 

"Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace."
 Ephesians 4:2-3
 
Hugs and Kisses,

January Goals

Hi Lovelies! 

Well, here we are on the 3rd day of 2015 and I thought it was time to make some goals for January. I just realized that I never made any goals for December (hangs head in shame), so I had better make some good ones for January, huh?

Here are my goals for January:

Goal #1

Drink more water. This is one thing that I need to be better at. I plan on making some hydrate stickers to put in my planner to track my water intake. Hopefully this will help with the water consumption.

Goal #2

Eat more fruits and veggies. I really need to work on this, since I know I don't eat enough of either one. I did make a fruit and veggie track to use in my planner. I figure if I check it off every day then I should be able to stick to this goal better. 

Goal #3

Read at least three new books this month. 

Goal #4

Blog once  a day this month. I really need to work on this as well. I really want to increase my readership, so I need some interesting posts. Does anyone have any suggestions?

So, what are your goals for January?

Five on Friday

Hi Lovelies!

Happy Friday!! I'm glad to be back to a blogging schedule. I apologize for not being around the last couple of weeks, but I promise I have a very good and exciting excuse for my absence. So, today I wanted to share my Five on Friday. 

Shall we get started?

One

My planners. I love my planners and I am currently using my Plum Paper Planner. Although I do plan on ordering an Erin Condren Life Planner sometime in the next two weeks. 







Two

My Esty shop: Sweet Pea Designs Too. I have had so many orders in the last week. I am excited and plan to get all of the orders processed and shipped this coming Monday. 

Three

Friend streaming on Netflix. I love this show and I plan on binge watching in the evenings for the next couple of days. 



Four

Spending time with my family. I love them with all of my heart and I don't know where I would be without them. They are my world and I would not trade them for anything. 

Five

Christmas break. I am still on break from my class and I am enjoying it. My class does start back up next Thursday.

Have a wonderful Friday!!!
