friends (and family) make the world go round!

Thank you baby Jeeesus it's fridaaaay!!! And super bowl weekend at that. Which means it's going to include my favorite F's ... Family, Friends and Food :)

Speaking of FRIENDS ;) I don't have many, I actually prefer it that way. I have about a handful of friends and they are the bestest ones evaaahhh!!! I just lalalalove them to pieces. Plus, who needs a lot of friends when you have a big family? With that said, two of them have recently gave me some wonderful gifts...

My bestie Roni, whom I just love and adore has been my bestie for about 14 years now. So she knows waaaaaayyyy too much about me...LOL... but I wouldn't have it any other way. She was the second to know of my pregnancy, and we cried together and she made me emotional when she gave me two pendants and a prayer card. The first pendant is of the Virgin Mary to always be with me during my pregnancy. The second pendant is of St. Christopher to guide and protect myself and baby of our whereabouts. I thank god for her and her wonderful gift... Thank you aunty Kat,  You're going to be the bestest baby sitter EVER!!!


The next gift is from one of my darling, wonderfullest, best friend, Beverly aka Bev aka Beth aka Betherly aka Boppi :) (I think she'll have something to say about all that lmao) and her crazy, humorous husband Mark! Oh, can't forget about the doggies, Marley and Moana. Beth and Mark sent me a fun Pregnancy Calendar  so I can track my journey throughout my pregnancy, which I just loooove cause I wanted to get one myself, but always forgot :/ And of course I have to mention the funny card that Mark picked out. The baby communication lingo scares, thanks for that Mark!!! Betherly is actually first cousins with Todd, and is how I met Todd. They're both heaven sent! Thank you Aunty Boppi and Uncle Mark, you're going to be great baby sitters as well!!! lol 

Thank you for the wonderful gifts and for being AH-MAZING friends/sisters! You guys rock my socks and I thank god for yous!

time flies

Where has the month gone? I can't believe it's already going to be February, the best month EVAAAHHHHH simply because it's my birthday month :)

I've been sick allll week. Well, it's kinda a hit and miss, mostly HIT :/ Like I'll be sick one day, and the next I'm fine, then I'm sick again the following day, than I'm fine the next. I can't figure it out. BUTTTT on a positive note, this week marks 16 weeks! I'm officially 4 months pregnant, which is when the morning sickness is suppose to subside. Crossing my fingers that every other day of feeling good turns into EVERYDAY, HEEEEYYYY!!!!

Thanks to the cool apps I downloaded, I get to keep up with baby's progress weekly. Here's what baby is up to at 4 months...

A growth spurt? Have I not grown enough? I feel like a house already. 

see!!!! a HOUSE :/ this baby is going to have me literally rolling around.

I lalalalove flats! As short as I am (5'4) I really should be wearing 4 inch heels, but come on, 4 inch heels are not nearly as comfortable as some cute flats. Plus there's sooooooo many to choose from these days. So today I'm linking up with The Vintage Apple for an Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday! to share some adorb flats...











Now if only I can purchase them all :))

Sick and Tired of being SICK and TIRED :/

Today marks 15 weeks and I'm STILL sick with morning sickness. Why do they call it morning sickness anyways? I'm sick all morning, noon and night.. I'm not exaggerating either. Since I've been pregnant, I've had horrible headaches that are accompanied with shoulder and neck pains, I'm nauseous all day, I throw up at least once a day, sometimes twice, I sneeze more than I've ever have, and my noses is always stuffy. My Dr. says it's safe to take Tylenol for my headaches and even suggested that I take a tylenol with Coca-Cola, the caffeine is suppose to help ease the tension. So best believe I take a tylenol daily with some Coke, it's a hit and miss, it doesn't work all the time, but it's always worth a shot, ANYTHING to get rid of my headaches. Then there's my nausea, I was given this tablet to help with nausea. You don't just swallow the tablet down with water, you have to let it dissolve under your tongue... well lemme teeeeellll you, the tablet tastes GROSS! I almost threw up as it was dissolving. Nonetheless, it helped a bit with the nausea.

People ask me 'How's your pregnancy going?' I'm always honest by telling them 'I hate it!, I hate being pregnant!' It definitely hasn't been fun whatsoever. My experience has been full of sickness. I hope and pray that I can enjoy AT LEAST a couple of months being pregnant without being sick. I do know how blessed I am and what we will have at the end of the tunnel, so that keeps my spirits high through all the madness.

14 weeks

This week marks 14 weeks, and being sick for 14 weeks makes it feel like 14 months :/ But nonetheless, baby is still doing it's thing in there. I downloaded 2 cool apps on my iPhone to follow baby's progress. So here's what I've learned about being 14 weeks...

Cute to know baby is making facial expressions, cause I make tons myself :) but peeing? That's a little weird to know baby is laying in it's own pee. However, I do hope to see some thumb sucking on my next ultrasound... That'll be fun!

two lines vs. one line

November 15th changed my life forever... 

A couple weeks prior to that day, I was having major bad cramps and my breast were super sore. I was also tired ALL.THE.TIME. which lead me to think one thing... I'm definitely starting my period (TMI) but true. I waited and waited as the days that turned in to weeks went by, NOTHING, no period, no sign of spotting, NOTHING! Except for of course the ongoing symptoms I was feeling, which by that time I started to feel all kinds of different symptoms in addition to the ones I was already feeling, nausea, headaches and no energy to do anything. So a light bulb went off, I have to be coming down with something... I immediately thought I was coming down with the stomach flu, BUT considering I didn't start my period yet, I had to rule out one thing ...  pregnancy :/

It was now November 15th, I got home from work, fed my dog, fed my own face and called Todd (my boyfriend) to let him know what I was up to. After asking if I were ok and if I needed anything he said 'Ok, call me the minute you take the test' No one knew but him and I, not even my bestie... So I took the test, it said to give it a few minutes before reading the results, so I waited, and waited, and waited,  it felt like FOREVER... of course while I'm pacing back and forth, I kept glancing down on the bathroom counter, I saw one line (one line is a negative, two lines is positive) I was relieved, but I gave it another second, YES, just one more second... I looked down, and saw TWO lines... IMMEDIATELY I picked up the stick and panicked, I kept saying 'OH MY GOSH, OH MY GOSH, OH MY GOSH' I said it about 100 times. I cried in between a few OH MY GOSHes.. but I had to gather myself to call Todd. Nope, I sure didn't listen to him when he said to call him the minute I take the test, instead I called him when I got the results. 

I called and said 'I took the test' he responds 'should I sit down for this?' I said 'YUP!' He automatically knew. We were both in shock and couldn't believe were having a BABY! 
Til this day we are still in shock, but extremely HAPPY! 

We will be 14 weeks tomorrow and baby is due July 16th.
