Yay! We finally know for sure. So far we know her name will be Kloey, but we are still unsure of the middle name. I was so excited to get to see my baby girl again! & Of course I knew the whole time ;P
I’m feeling super great! Halfway through this thing. It seems like time is just flying by!
Kloey is a perfect 11oz with a 160 heartbeat. The doc said everything looked normal. Great things to hear 🙂
I go back in a month to get my diabetes testing and all that fun stuff.

17-18 week update!!

Feb 20th we find out the gender of our bebe taco!! Im so excited 😀
When we went to the doctor the heartbeat was 149 so we’ve only had one heartbeat under 140. We also did the ring test, and the baking soda test to predict the gender. Both test results said girl. YAYY! We all pretty much know its going to be a girl, and her name will be Kloey. We haven’t been able to find a middle name yet. I think I like how Kloey Loretta sounds, but I haven’t run that past my boyfriend yet. So we will see what he says. Yesterday I felt the baby move for the first time. Like really I felt it move, and I know it was the baby. It was such an amazing experience. & it made me sooo happy at like 2 o’clock in the morning! Haha.
Im already losing a lot of sleep. Its hard to breath because im so congested right now and its also really hard to get comfortable already. Im starting to show a little bit but not much because im a bigger person. No weight gain so far. My pre-pregnancy weight was 177 and I have been staying at 176 this entire time. Which isn’t bad since like I said im already a bigger person. So that’s comforting.
Right now I am making some decorations for our new home. All thanks to Pintrest. I am a pintrest addict!
The two projects im working on now are:
Over sized letters- which is ALOT harder than it looks, but keeps me busy.

Wall décor made from toilet paper rolls which was fun and easy to do.

Once they are done ill post some pictures of them. For some reason I just feel so crafty and normally I am the farthest thing from a crafty person. So that’s why I always say I think my bebe taco is going to be an artist. ❤

Thanks for reading.

15 week update!

This has been one of the best weeks so far. Do I say this every week? I feel like I do. Ha! In all seriousness this week my life has come together so beautifully. Well at the moment nothings really changed to terribly much, but there’s so many plans for the very near future that are coming along quite nicely.

This week I started an online business called Happy Baths! Which is a business that makes homemade bath products at an affordable price. And yes if you know me you know I always have these wild dreams that I always give up on, BUT I’ve never had such great feedback on any of my ideas like I have on my business. Everyone I talk to about it just tells me what a great idea this is and how much they believe in me. Keep in mind these aren’t people who normally have faith in my crazy ideas. So that makes me feel great about everything. Especially when complete strangers start liking the Facebook page and people signing up for the free samples. 
Check it out here: http://happybaths.weebly.com/index.html

Also this week, we found out that me and my boyfriend are going to be able to move in right next door to my parents. See they have a garage apartment on the same property that they live on. They have been renting it out so I didn’t think we would be able to move in. But apparently the people they are renting to aren’t going to renew their lease so therefore in March we are going to be able to move in! YAYYY! So exciting. Of course we have to pay, but its still awesome being so close to home but ill also be able to be “on my own” with my family.

I have so much energy and have been feeling GREAT! No bad symptoms at all. Which is so nice! 🙂
I’m just steadily getting my life together.
 
Also, to all you mommies out there I have an gender ultrasound question: When where you able to get your gender ultrasound? Because my doctor wants me to wait until 24 weeks.. and that just doesn’t seem right to me. I feel like I’ve been seeing women find out around 18 weeks.

Well, thank you so much for reading!
Talk to y’all next week! 🙂

14 week update!!

So I’m officially in my second trimester to everyone who debates if its 12, 13, or 14 weeks. Anyway. I feel absolutely FANTASTIC! My energy (plus extra) is back. I don’t feel sick all the time anymore. I’m actually getting things done around the house again. That first trimester just really kicked my butt!

Its over and I have survived. I’m just glad to be feeling so great again. Also being able to eat again is GREAT! How I’ve missed my great relationship with food I thought that would never come back either. But it has.. and I’m seriously starving like every 5 minutes now. Its like I can never eat enough to get full. Which is crazy because just last week I could hardly get myself to eat every 4 hours… haha, I’m defiantly over that little phase.

Every night for my midnight snack (for the past week) has been chips & salsa. I seriously just obsess over it. Every morning for breakfast my mom makes me an amazing ham, cheese, and jalapeno omelet, and for a snack during the day its Nacho Dorito’s. So much so that we have no run out of all these things and I have to wait until they shop to get them again. So it feels like im withdrawing from salsa, omelets, and Dorito’s right now. I know I know, I’m just a kid and life is a nightmare.

Also, I’ve been thinking about throwing a gender reveal party. Well I’ve asked my mom to get the gender so she could throw it for me, and she seemed okay with it. But I was reading online that a lot of people put their nose’s up to it. My only question is, why? I mean the reason I want to have it is because how amazing is the idea of popping a balloon or cutting into a cake with your significant other and being surprised together. And before that having your family and closest friends pick sides over what your having? & just celebrating the baby. It doesn’t have to be a huge party, but a little something I see nothing wrong with that.

So anywho, enough babbling on and back to what I was saying at first. I do want to have the party… I’m just not sure if I want to wait or not, because I really want to know. Like now. But I feel like waiting a couple more weeks or so wont hurt and it would be a wonderful memory. I don’t know, I’m very indecisive about the whole thing right now. Any suggestions?

Thanks for reading!
See yah next week!

13 Week Update!!

Oops I did it again. These weeks are really sneaking up on me. So actually I’m 14 weeks today, but this is my update for week 13 :)!!

So this week I went to the doctor.. and low and behold.. IM NOT DYING! My doctor literally acted like I was stupid when I told him that I think I might be having migraines (even though I’ve never had them before) apparently the cause of these headaches was because I wasn’t eating right. So making myself eat every 4 hours has been really hard, even though its small things at a time, but it works!! So I don’t care how hard it is as long as I don’t get that terrible headache back again ill be good. Also at the doctors office when we first got there she took Edwin & I to our room and she told me to weigh myself and she’ll be right back… well the scale wasn’t doing anything. I tried the stepping on first thing.. I tried just getting on. Nothing. Nada. I felt so fat!! Seriously, I was thinking I had just broken the scale and all Edwin is doing is laughing the whole time. So eventually Edwin worked some kind of man magic and got it to work. & I actually lost a pound. Which the doctor didn’t seem to have any concerns that I’ve basically maintained the same weight this first trimester so I’m not worried about that.

I’m still looking for a job.. and that’s starting to scare me. I’m already getting stir crazy at the house. I’m just not the type of person that can be a stay at home mommy-to-be. Hopefully once the baby comes ill be able to stay home, but that will be an entire job in itself. But I do have a job interview this Thursday so fingers crossed that it goes WAY better than the State Farm interview went. Honestly, I’m scared (I absolutely hate interviews) but I keep reminding myself its not about me anymore its all about my prince/ss and this is something that I need to do for us. Plus, it starts off with really good pay (for me, anyway) so im really praying for this to work out.

Oh yeah, before I forget the heartbeat was a 120 this time!! Edwin was so cute when he heard is was 120 because I told him about the heartbeat wives tale. So he was like “ooooh, 120, I told you it was going to be a boy”. Hahah, but the first ones were way over 140 so he’s just going to have to admit defeat on this one 🙂

Symptoms this week: The only thing that’s been noticeable this week is the breast tenderness, and I hear that goes away soon so that’s super exciting! My energy is back, and I feel great! Especially with that headache FINALLY being gone.

So sorry for such a long post this time, but thanks for reading! 🙂
Have a wonderful week!

12 Week Update!!

So actually today I just hit 13 weeks, FINALLY in the 2nd trimester (according to the app “Im expecting”) but I completely forgot to write the 12 week update for my blog.

Nothings really changed too much. The back pain is still terrible and I have this constant throbbing headache. Last night I got super sick, but sleeping it off I guess made it go away. It was bad though. I couldn’t walk without my head hurting, my cough came back, my back pains were like 10 times worse then they have been. But with the help of a electric back massager and my boyfriends cuddles, I think that’s probably what made me feel a lot better. I’m extremely moody and its really weird, because Ill get really angry and not even realize that I’m being a total bitch until Edwin is like “Gosh Kayla, what’s wrong with you?” and then I feel bad for being a sour puss. But I’m not crying like a mad woman or anything. I just get very angry for no reason at all. My boobs are like in EXREME amounts of pain. Even the slightest touch or anything just hurts so bad. And ive been getting sharp pains throughout my body. Its usually like my knees or my ribs or my boobs, but it hurts. I don’t really like that too much.

My nausea is completely gone. I THINK! Every time I say its not that bad, or its gone. Its like my baby knows and has to make me throw up a couple times I guess prove to me that I’m not one of the lucky ones. This might be a bit nasty so if you cant stomach poop story’s I suggest you not read this next part. But the last time I had morning sickness was technically Christmas morning. Literally at 12am. Apparently my grandma had been using the potty for quite sometime and I just didn’t realize it. I must have ran into the bathroom as soon as she escaped because as soon as I got into the bathroom the puke was coming. I couldn’t stomach the smell of my grandmothers bowl movements. It was probably the most horrific things that could ever happen to someone. I was trying to spray the febreze at the same time of throwing up and I was throwing up so much that it actually came back up at me. Ugh. It was seriously AWFUL! I told my sister that story and after she could talk again from laughing so hard she then told me “Oh yeah, its always good to flush while throwing up so that doesn’t happen”. Oh thanks for that advice now! Oh well. Its over, and hopefully I never have to experience anything like that ever again.

Its hard to eat anything right now for some reason. Everything is either super nasty to me, or I’m just simply not hungry at all. This kind of worry’s me because I know that your supposed to eat through out the day… but its hard to even eat once a day sometimes. Then at like midnight is when I get super hungry but even then I can only eat little bits at a time. Its really weird.

My next appointment is on the January 2nd, and I’m so excited!! Just because I can hopefully see the baby again, and because I really need to talk to my doctor. Im scared I might actually be sick. And browsing the internet of symptoms doesn’t really help my hypochondriac self. Also, apparently women don’t always get to see their baby every visit. I do know that my doctor has his own equipment so maybe he does an ultrasound every time or maybe its because I found out so early. I’m not exactly sure, but like I’ve said before I hope I get to see the baby every time because I just absolutely love to see her (*fingers crossed!*)

So hopefully in a few days ill be posting some pictures of my little prince/ss 🙂
I hope everyone has a happy & safe new year!!

11 week update

I feel 10,000 times better after days of sleeping away my sickness. Whatever that awfulness was I have no idea but thankfully it wasn’t the flu. Now, I have so much more energy and I never want to see a bed again!! Seriously, one can only be in bed for so long after it physically hurts. Defiantly time to go out and get a good walk in… well maybe not right now because its 12am, but tomorrow sounds good. Also, I need to get a good clean done on my room. Its really gone to hell since I’ve gotten sick. I hate when that happens, but oh well. Cleaning always feels great.. after its done.

4 days until Christmas and I already have my gifts wrapped. With the exception of my moms last gift that’s still in the mail, and my boyfriends gift that I still need to go buy… That’s going to be the hardest part this year, because he’s so hard to buy for. But im so proud of myself that I’ve actually got practically everything done already! I usually wait until last last minute which is never fun. But now im super excited for Christmas this year.

Besides being sick this week there’s no signs in any different symptoms. Other than my high emotions I had the other night. Poor Edwin he was sick as a dog and I was sitting there crying my heart out over a song that was on and then I got mad at him because he had no idea why I was crying!! 10 minutes after my crying session was over I just hugged him and told him how much I loved him and his response to that is “What is wrong with you?”.

Honestly, week 11 wasn’t one of my favorites. That sickness really sucked, BUT now that its gone I feel great, and if week 12 is just like this and without the sickness I think im gonna be one happy momma 🙂

Thanks everyone for reading.
Have a Merry Christmas!!
