Same Pants Everyday.

Between fighting a cold and pregnancy I have been drained of all my energy. So this weekend i spent most of my days on Pinterest and of course re fell in love with it and found yummy food I might actually eat and ideas for the baby's room and what I want my house to look like and organizational ideas that look good in theory but not actually getting off the couch or bed to do them at this point! I did however get up and get dressed a few times this past week. Hurray me!!! But our church prayer groups and Bible Studies start back up and I actually get to go to them for the first time in my adult life so I will be getting in actual picture taking quality outfits soon...!

 My friend gave these to me on "Borrow" status. They are one size bigger and they are so comfortable and stretchy and actually super cute, I wear them almost everyday!!

And can any one help a girl out with Blogger, did they change a few come I cant enlarge all my uploaded will either let me do the first one and that's it or none! Starting to make me frustrated.

Happy Monday!

Awesome & Awkward

What do you get when you mix a bright orange shirt and a pregnant girl.....

Orangesicle. :)

We hit 10 weeks today, well okay actually it was yesterday and the baby is the size of a kumquat ,embarrassing enough I had not a clue what that was, so google came in handy.  Apparently it is a fruit and i hear its good! Next step going and finding one!!!!

Here is a Kumquat in case you have never seen one like me! 

-how easily I can cry at a drop of a hat, and literally if a hat drops I might cry.
-Gagging in bi mart today when I walked passed the canned chili isle....
-Gagging while I read about foods I should be eating while prego
-Dry heaving every time I open my fridge.GROSS
-ordering an all meet omelet and still needing and wanting more sausage after! Its really weird and I feel like a giant T-Rex yelling "wheres my meat??"
-falling asleep on the couch, the bed, actually anywhere and sleeping for multiple hours at a time and still needing to go to bed at 9pm.
-run through Isles because I HAVE TO GET OUT OF THERE while grocery shopping.....ugg so gross!!!

-The Office, although I have seen every episode I still laugh out loud every time.
-my new decorated living room that is now cozy, warm and inviting!
-knowing that in 8 short weeks I get to find out if its a boy or a girl.
-Watching The Husband learn and read books about the baby with me and laugh together at my reaction to what is going to happen in 6 short months.(im a little freaked)
-Maternity pants....they are truly an amazing invention, I have only worn them once because I feel a little ashamed to have them on, but it is so nice not squeezing into jeans that are snug and uncomfortable!!!!
-Wearing my boots and scarf the the other day, hello FALL!!!!

Happy Thursday, may your days be a little less awkward then mine !!!

Love Nicole and the baby!

Toe injury of 2012

Fruit Make Up My Weeks.

Its a fun little tradition we have of taking pictures of how big the baby is compared to fruit. As stated in previous blogs I cant visually see 2 1/2 cm big or half an inch but I can tell you how big a raspberry and Grapes are.

I had to look up (google is my best friend most days)for how big other pregnant people are at 8 weeks, because i feel like I am showing already and popping out and its awkward and I don't like showing it off yet. I feel like I am trying to be that "pregnant woman" so i don't fit my clothes much anymore, pants are all getting a little tighter and my shirts...well those look terrible on me. I luckily have an amazing mom who keeps getting me bigger shirts to wear and bring them over on a daily basis and friends that loan me the next size up in jeans, and this amazing invention of a belly band to keep my unbuttoned pants up... yes some days I am that girl with my zipper down and button undone on purpose! My yoga pants and socks have never felt soooo good i actually dream about wearing them all day and to all events. My "I have had for  7 years skinny jeans"....gone, I wore those for the last time probably in my life as my hips are expanding a little body here i come.

you may notice my big bandage on my toe in the next picture, I like to refer to it as the toe injury of 2012. Long story short, I got onto the escalator at work, someone called my name I spun around and went to just walk back off the escalator (the wrong way) caught my toe in the next coming step, and boy those things are sharp and painful, I was in instant pain, my toe was cut open in multiple places, blood all over the sales floor, I had an er trip and stitches, along with a tetanus shot that hurt like a hole in the head, they starved me for 6 1.2 hours and i had no water or couldn't go to the bathroom, i was the pregnant crying woman in the back of the er where they forgot about me and finally when a nurse came in I broke down and asked for them to just let me go home I didn't care I was bleeding everywhere but I was starving. He grabbed me some food from a party there were having and water and fixed me up, at this point my numbing meds wore off and i could feel everything he was doing but I didn't care i wanted to go home, I ended up slightly fracturing the inside of my foot and limped around for weeks!!! Lame I know! Brutal to be a gimp and in pain for weeks and walk around with a giant toe! I was a big hit with the little kids and dogs, they just wanted my bandage!

 The Baby at 8 weeks, its looking (facing) left and if you look real close you can see little ears and cheeks and facial features. Husband swears its a boy and says he can tell from the picture, we went in thinking i was almost at 9 weeks and found out I was only really 8weeks and 1 day, so not really but kind of had to redo week 9 and that was a big bummer. But the baby is healthy with a strong heartbeat and this mamma cant wait to see more picture of him/her. As soon as they turned the speakers up laying there on the bed watching the screen not sure what to really expect since the only time I see this scenario is on TV or movies, and that heartbeat that sounds like a washing machine came on it took my breath away....tears pooled out of my eyes and my heart felt like a mom for the first time in my life. I feel in love with this baby and I know I have so much more to experience and hear and see and a new love but if its anything like what I felt hearing my baby's heart I am in for the time of my life. I got to watch my husband see his first child on that screen and it was just this amazing overwhelming experience and i am so honored to get to do this with him.

                                                   My baby hound dog! Love this girl.

We are headed into week 10 I will try to take more outfit pictures that is if I get out of my yoga pants!! NO promises!
