14 Weeks

Yesterday was our doctor's appointment! We heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time, and let me tell you, it was amazing. I believe it was somewhere between 150 and 160. We recorded it on our iPhones so we could listen to it over and over again! Our next appointment is on December 29th (5 weeks from now), we get to find out the sex of the baby! I can't wait to put a name with our sweet boy or girl. :) Here is my 14 week picture. The baby is the size of a navel orange.

My tummy is still not showing very much, but I am sure that is coming. I will take a picture every week with a new fruit or vegetable. :)

Overall I am feeling pretty good! I am loving the holiday season and making plans to start working on the nursery. Randy of course is being wonderful! We are having a blast with this baby! :)

I was going to put some nursery ideas on here, but I can't get the pictures from other websites to load. Perhaps when this computer doesn't out smart me, I can fill you all in! :) We are thinking about starting on it over Christmas!

New Loves

Kiwi is a new love of mine. :)

I am not sure why, but I love it so. I bought a bag of six of them about a week ago, and needless to say...they did not last long. However, I think I just really like sour things. I don't buy kiwi's that are "ready." I buy the ones that are a little sour. A lady at work tried one the other day and said it tasted like a lime. :) Oops. hehe. I also love pickles, lemons, etc...yikes. But don't worry I am into other fruits and veggies too, I just find myself leaning towards these foods more.

I also believe it will soon be time for maternity pants. I am using the old "rubberband" trick on my pants right now...but this does not always do the trick. It gets especially complicated on dress pants. So...I am on the search for decent maternity clothes in the East Texas area. Any ideas? If not, I will pay my brother a visit in Lewisville and hit up the Dallas stores. If you have any fabulous stores I need to hit, let me know! I am up for any suggestions!

And on a last happy note...it is the count down to Thankgiving break...I am thankful for that!

Good-Bye First Trimester!

Well, gladly the first trimester is pulling to a close! Although being pregnant is fabulous, being sick was not! :) About a week ago I started feeling more normal and since then, it has been smooth sailing. It is so nice to be able to cook again and not worry about getting sick. :) I know it won't be all fun and games the whole time, but I am loving feeling good! 

My next doctor's appointment is over Thanksgiving break and I should be able to hear the heartbeat then! I am just looking forward to the holidays and getting sometime off with family!

Below I posted my first belly picture. :) It isn't much at all, I am not showing very much yet but I have a little bump! My kiddos at school were starting to notice that my belly was showing a little bit. One of them actually said, "Mrs. Kiser I guess your baby is starting to grow because your tummy looks fat." haha, kids...so good for the self-esteem. Anyway, thought you might enjoy my "fat" picture. :)
