25 Weeks down!

Well, week 25 is almost up! Almost to the third trimester! Only a couple weeks to go! 
Very exciting! This pregnancy has flown by it seems! I have a feeling that the last few weeks will go by slow!
Here is a fun little survey I found! Enjoy!

How far along? 25 weeks and 5 days!
Total weight gain/loss: Last time I checked about 13 lbs!
Maternity clothes? Maternity pants and I love them! Well, the pair that I have
Stretch marks? Not from the baby! ha
Sleep: Starting to lose sleep! I have been tossing and turning all night!
Best moment this week: Just always feeling Lexi move!
Have you told family and friends: YES!
Movement: All the time!
Food cravings: A few weeks ago it was hotdogs, but nothing much lately..although I am always wanting chocolate!
Anything making you queasy or sick: nothing too much
Have you started to show yet: yep!
Leakage: Thats a little personal!
Gender prediction: It's a girl!
Labor Signs: Nothing really!- but I'm always worried!
Belly Button in or out? IN- and it better stay that way!
Wedding rings on or off? On, but they are starting to get tight!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Most of the time!
Weekly Wisdom: Who care about looking comfy!
Milestones: Almost out of the 2nd trimester!

I always try and take a picture on Sunday because I'm not in scrubs!
I wore black today which hides Lexi a bit but you can still see her!
Week 25!
 I moved my jacket out of the way and
BAM! there she is!
September seems like so far away, but when you think of it between 13-14 more weeks it seem that there isn't enough time left to do everything!

Mrs. Grump

I am being Mrs. Grump today! I'm not sure why. Maybe because its Friday and I am working all alone answering phones.
Sometimes, patients just annoy me. They are just rude- I try not to be rude back..but sometimes my buttons are pushed!
Is it 6:00 yet? I'm ready for my weekend of nothing! Sleeping in tomorrow, eating some food, swimming sounds fun, and of course relaxing with my two loves!

I had a dream of Lexi last night! I woke up ready to meet her! Only 15 more weeks. Last night I was a little worried because I didn't feel her move that much that day. I decided that at 10:00pm I would drink a MTN Dew to see if she would move...and about 1 hour later she was kicking up a storm! What a great feeling!
There are some funny things about pregnancy that I thought would never hit me.

1. I can no longer put my pants on by standing on one leg.
2. I can no longer bend over to pick something up with out groaning
3. I get winded walking up the stairs. Wait, I did that before. Nevermind. :)
Ms. Lexi has decided its time to hit a growth spurt and I can feel it! I love her, but wish pregnancy didn't take 9 months! :)
I think writing about little Lexi Mae has put me in a better mood :)
I always find pictures like this intresting! She is just getting so big! I haven't really developed any "new" stretch marks but my current plan is to blame the ones I do have on her..people would beleive me right? I have gained 4 lbs since April, so I'm not sure if thats normal or just seems like alot. Maybe I should lay of the chocolate donuts...

Week 24

Well, another week has come. 
Week 24. 
Lexi likes
1. Mountain Dew of the day:
Lexi doesn't like:
1. When I sit with my legs crossed. (I guess she gets smashed)
Everything is going well for us!
On Friday, we came home and started to enjoy our weekend! We went out to dinner came home, blew up the air mattress in the living room and watched some movies. We went to sleep and the next morning we headed to Vegas! Why you may ask?  HAPPY 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Thats why!
I can't believe it has been 2 years! It seems that so much has happened. Broc and I have a great 2 years! I feel like we have accomplished so much. By having great jobs, attending church and our callings, buying a home, and starting a family. He is my best friend. I thank heavenly father for him each day! What a wonderful man he is! We decided to stay the night in Vegas and enjoy our weekend. On Sunday we drove back and enjoyed a nice mothers day at Broc's parents house. I couldn't help but think that day about our first pregnancy. That Mother's Day was my due date. I couldn't help but wonder how different our life would be..besides me being 20 lbs heavier. Would I be a mom already? Would it be a boy or a girl? What would our life consist of? But then, a feeling of peace came. Lexi is here-well she is on her way. She is the baby that we are supposed to raise. I am so excited to meet her. I thank Heavenly Father each day for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy growing baby. On Monday, May 14th was our official anniversary! We started this day off by sleeping in. We both took the day off work! At 11:30 we had an ultrasound to see Lexi Mae! It sure was fun..although I wish she wasn't so stubborn. She wouldn't show us her face. As you can see in the picture below she is being camera shy. 

 She is starting to look like a baby! Gaining some weight!
She weighs over a pound!
  Some days, this is how I feel. 

 Of course, a picture of Tito!
And his girl friend Coco

I think I tend to ramble on in my blog. It is the heck did that happen! I need to go to sleep! Goodnight everyone!
Oh yea!

Pregnancy = less brain cells

Pregnancy. Obviously I'm pregnant. I have heard that pregnant ladies lose some brain cells and think a little slower or are just "dumb!" I didn't believe it.

I do now.

I made so many mistakes today! I blame it on pregnancy. Did anyone else feel like this?
Also, I had my first "crazy pregnant lady dream!"

I had a dream that I was 23 weeks pregnant (which I am)
Then..there was another baby inside of me that was 16 weeks pregnant! What!
Being crazy!
I love my little Lexi though!

Crafty Items

 Well, Broc has been gone since Sunday. I decided this week that I would work on some crafts I had in mind from Pintrest. Can I just say that I think very crafty in my mind...
When it comes to actually doing it...I'm not so great. 
But, I gave it a shot. Here are my wonderful-dealwith creations. 
Here is what I wanted to make for Lexi's room.  

So, I headed to the DI to pick out a frame. 
I removed the glass
Painted the frame white
Painted the frame pink  (a few layers)
 I then added 2 hooks in the bottom of the frame. I wanted to add more like in the picture..but those things were HARD to screw in! So, I settled with two! 
Then I added some pink ribbon. I tried my best to space them evenly! I think I did okay!
Plus, there will be tons of cute hair bows on them! :)
Hey, it will do! Now I just need to go buy a bunch of hair bows and hang it on the wall!
 Next project! I found this really great tutorial to make your own chalk board paint! Here is how it looks..
So, I added everything together like it says. 
I decided to do pink and turquoise.
The paint was very thick-mostly because you add un sanded grout to it.
 After it dried..I tried to write on it. 
Yea right. I did something wrong! Now I have a big chalk stain on it that wont come off.
I didn't want to throw it away so I figured I would add some numbers to it to make it a little puzzle for when she is older. 
 Besides the 2 chalk stains it turned out pretty cute I think.
Plus, I'm sure it will be torn up and lost in a year anyway :)
 I have one more project in mind! I will start on that one tomorrow-after I go shopping of course! Tomorrow is double stamp day at kid to kid...So I will be loading up on some good items for the baby! SPEAKING OF THE BABY! Broc and I were thinking that I was going to be a little pregnant lady because we were both small babies and I wasn't showing too much. Well, some women just pop. I haven't had my MAJOR pop out yet, but I think in the next 2 weeks it will come. This shirt fit pretty well last time I wore it..

Then to end this post, just a cute little photo of my Tito!

22 weeks-growing a human

22 weeks.
Not much as changed on my part. My baby is close to a pound...which is great! I only have about 16 weeks left! That mean I need to buy more than 1 outfit a week or she won't have anything to wear! Holy cow! It still seems that we have forever to do everything...but I know it will sneak up on us shortly!
Being pregnant is great...although there are a few things I miss.

1. Hot tub
2.Sleeping on my stomach
3.Skinny Jeans
That's about it. Other than that I can deal! Because my body isn't all stretched out yet I feel like I'm constantly dying for room in my body! Does that make sense? I hope so! All my muscles just seem so tight! I'm sure I will get over it! I have noticed that I eat a little more here and there..and pee more! Non stop! Goodness! Who knew! Lexi is doing well-she moves a lot and sits very low. My belly is starting to poke out and I'm not just looking fat! That's the best part! Yay!
Broc will be gone next week for work so I have a secret plan to go to shopping. Have you heard of Kid to Kid? Its a used clothing sore for kids. I love it. Everything I have gotten for her has been from there. Wednesday is double stamp day so I know what I will be doing next week! I hope that everyone has a great week! Maybe you will hear from me again on week 23!
