Happy Friday my friends! I don't know about you but I'm completely exhausted and am so ready for the weekend - and most importantly, my sister's baby shower. Tomorrow afternoon, we'll host about 40 people to celebrate the upcoming arrival of my sweet niece, appropriately nicknamed "Pippa."
Tonight, in preparation, I'll finish baking and icing 60-some cupcakes, build and decorate a cupcake tower, finish other miscellaneous decorations including banners and centerpieces, then finally, I can relax with my cousins, Kristin, Nicole and her son Brody. So excited they're all coming and I can give that baby some kisses!
Speaking of babies, one of my best blogging pals Jennifer hounded me on twitter for some pregnancy pics. I figured I'd better post some because she's liable to stop being my friend and I just don't think I could handle that right now. (Dragon needs her night hawk!) Besides, it's been a while since I gave y'all an update so here goes.
14 weeks preggo and in desperate need of a haircut.
How far along? 14 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 0 pounds since my last doc appointment.
How big is baby? About 3 1/2 inches, the size of a big lemon.
Maternity clothes? Yup. Only because they're WAYYY more comfy. See picture above. Those pants have spandex from hip to boob. Sexay.
Stretch Marks? Only old ones, no new ones from baby T.
Best moment this week? Last week I heard the babies heartbeat, pretty freakin cool.
Movement? None from the baby anyway.
Food Cravings? Still pretty nauseous so I eat whatever sounds good. At the moment? Sierra mist and vegetable beef soup. Possibly followed by a cupcake. Maybe.
What I miss: My working bathroom... but that's not about the baby. Just personal preference.
What I am looking forward to: My sisters baby shower so I can take tips on what to do/not to do for my own!
Nausea/Vomiting?: Still nauseous almost every day but the vomiting seems to have subsided.
Labor signs? Nope
Gender? Jury is still out.
Belly Button in or out? Innie for life. I hope.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Sleep? All the time. I want to nap every day, all day.
Weekly Wisdom: Note to self: no matter how busy you get... eat! If you skip lunch, you're guaranteed to get sick.
And just because, here's a closer view of my bump. It's tiny, but it's definitely there. Can't suck in that thing any more!
Have a great weekend my loves! Hope Hurricane Irene passes through and doesn't harm the coast too much, praying for my daddy since he'll be in the thick of it.
