Wedding Wednesday

Image
Happy Wedding Wednesday y'all!!! I seriously have been slacking on wedding planning but I plan (keyword "plan") to get a lot done in August, or at least kind of. I definitely did not get everything done I had planned to in July but let's get over what I actually did get done...


   Said Yes to the Dress- Ok, so technically this happened in June but it wasn't on my end of the month Wedding Wednesday post last month. Getting this one done is HUGE to me so I am definitely happy about getting that done. The only thing is, I think my dress will be ready for my first fitting like right before I'm about to give birth or like right after. So the fitting will have to be put on hold for sure."Booked" a ceremony & reception venue- I put this on last month's post but I'm putting it again since my mom officially closed on her new house and lives there now. So it is definite that the wedding will be on her property.Made another draft guest listOrdere…

17 Week Bumpdate

Image
Ugggh, can we all please just put our pajamas back on and crawl back into bed??? No? Ok, then we might as well get on with this bumpdate.


How Far Along: 17 weeks and 2 days

Due Date: 12/31/2016 New Year's Eve!

Baby is the Size of: A Turnip! Baby is measuring 5" from crown to rump- can you believe how long she is already?!

Weight Gain: Well it looks like so far I have gained 7 lbs total.

Symptoms: Nausea, headaches, sore sensitive boobs, bloating, moody, fatigue, lightening crotch, sciatic nerve pain, and as of yesterday I have officially started feeling round ligament pain. I can't say enough how thankful I am for Diclegis so that I'm not puking my brains out! The midwife I saw on Friday wants me to start weaning myself off but I'm so scared to. So I've decreased it from 3 pills a day to two.

Gender: Girl!

Name: Rory Brielle

Movement: None, it is still too early although I get these little electric shock feelings sometimes. Some people on my app say it is movement …

Pink Blush Maternity

Image
Since finding out I am pregnant, I have been kickin' my Pinterest game into high gear. Between all of the cute baby clothes, parenting advice, new mom tips, top new products, nursery items, registry items, etc., I have been going crazy but I love it! Another thing I've been pinning and saving is maternity clothing.

   I have only bought two belly bands and one maternity top so far. I'm tempted to go try on a pair of maternity jeans but I think I'm going to wait on that just a little bit longer. One shop that caught my eye for sure was Pink Blush Maternity. Their maternity clothes are so freakin' cute! I especially love the maternity dresses and was so excited when I got an instagram message asking if I wanted to do a collaboration! Um yes?!!! 
   There was one dress I for sure had my eye on and so obviously that is what I chose. It is a maxi dress, which I love, and it is 3/4 sleeved with a beautiful floral print. Even though it is a maxi dress, it is so lightwe…

16 Week Bumpdate

Image
Good Morning y'all! It is bumpdate time, ya know since I can't seem to get my bumpdates done on Saturdays with all the craziness of the weekend.


How Far Along: 16 weeks and 2 days

Due Date: 12/31/2016 New Year's Eve!

Baby is the Size of: An Avocado! Baby is measuring 4-5" from crown to rump.

Weight Gain: Not sure. When I went to see one of my other doctors, what popped up on the scale was waaay off. My mom says that in pregnancy, you weigh different at different times of the day, plus I had eaten snacks on the way to that doctor. I'm going to estimate that I've gained about 3 lbs total.

Symptoms: Nausea, headaches, sore sensitive boobs, bloating, moody, fatigue, lightening crotch and sciatic nerve pain. I can't say enough how thankful I am for Diclegis so that I'm not puking my brains out!

15 Week Bumpdate

Image
Ugh, Mondays... so freakin' tired but let's start this week off right on a positive note. I'm 15 weeks and 2 days pregnant, so it's time for a 15 week bumpdate.


How Far Along: 15 weeks (technically I'm 15 weeks and 2 days today).

Due Date: 12/31/2016 New Year's Eve!

Baby is the Size of: A naval orange! 4.50" from crown to rump.

Weight Gain: At my last appointment I had gained about a lb total. I'm thinking I've gained about 3 lbs total right now but not completely sure since my scale at home sometimes differs from doctors' scales (although I don't always trust their scales either). I have an appointment with my doctor who monitors my Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome this week and they usually weigh me every visit. So we'll see what that scale says.

Symptoms: Nausea, headaches, sore sensitive boobs, bloating, moody, fatigue, calf cramps, foot cramps, lightening crotch and sciatic nerve pain. I can't say enough how thankful I a…

Wedding Wednesday

So I'm thinking maybe I'll do 2 Wedding Wednesdays a month, or at least for now. 1 on the 1st Wednesday of the month reviewing what needs to get done this month and 1 on the last Wednesday of the month going over what I actually got accomplished. Sound good?

   Before I review what wedding related tasks need to be completed this month, I want to announce a big to-do I got checked off the list last month... I bought my wedding dress! Well, I found the dress and put the deposit down or whatever but still!!! That is like a huge thing for me on my list. Now that I've said yes to the dress and all, I feel like a lot has been done even though there is much more to do. Oh yea, and apparently we have decided to have the wedding in the evening again instead of the morning.

   In July we need to...

   Review the drafted guest list and rewrite it.   Order Save-the-Dates and labels.   Make sure we have all of the guests' addresses.   Address the envelopes and mail out the Save-t…

Birthday Weekend Recap

Image
Good Morning y'all! Coming back to work after a 3-day weekend is NEVER fun. You are usually extra tired and just do not feel like being there. But we have to earn a living, right?

   On Sunday I turned 25! Just 5 years away from 30 and I am officially the same age as Jesse (until the 17th when he turns 26). This year's birthday was definitely different than most. We kept the usual tradition of going out to lunch or dinner but I didn't do any shopping and of course I didn't do any drinking. It is so weird, you would think being pregnant that I would stuff my face at dinner. Nope. Jesse took me to Outback Steakhouse. I ate a little bit of bread and some of a bloomin' onion before our dinner came out but I barely could eat any of my dinner and definitely had no room for dessert. So far, being pregnant, I've had to eat small meals and then snack throughout the whole day. It's mainly to help my nausea but I also just tend to be hungry throughout the day and i…
