20 weeks preggers- Bump at the beach!

20 weeks- HALF WAY THROUGH!!!

Well it's safe to say that I officially got my bump on! I took these two pics while I was down enjoying some R&R at the beach. I think my tummy seriously poked out overnight! I actually am excited to say that I am really starting to look pregnant (now I might be slashing my wrists later for voicing that) but for least I just don't look like I've been drinking extra booze!
We were down in the Gulf and it's sad because we were not able to go in the water at all because of the oil spill. I did enjoy lots and I mean lots of Vitamin D for baby boy Miles laying at the pool!

I am really starting to feel him a lot more everyday. Sometimes it's that fluttering feeling like you hear and sometimes it just feels like a bubble popped in my tummy.

Nick and I have decided on a name but that will have to wait until we tell friends. We did tell the family and they all love the name! Who knew a name could be so difficult to do. I remember before we picked up Cody from the breeder we got in lots of fights on over what we were going to name him. I mean that's just a DOG!!! Now imagine that on a much bigger scale!!!!!!!!!!!! We surprised each other and did not get in any bickering fights over this and both came up with something that we loved.

Shaved dog...

So I was going absolutely crazy with Cody's hair being all over my house. I mean I was taking the dry mop to the house MULTIPLE times a day. We had been at the lake this past weekend with the whole family for father's day, and that is when I decided I was going to have my dog shaved the minute I got home. Well Nick took him to the vet today. It turns out that his hair was so long we didn't even notice that poor Cody was suffering hot spots all around his neck. Our vet called while he was supposed to be getting groomed and told us that she would need to shave off all of his hair around his neck (so not to freak out at the groomer when it didn't look "normal"). Let's just say I came in to pick him up after work and I had the feeling of getting a REALLY BAD HAIR CUT! Not only did I not recognize my dog's short haircut but he looked liked he got mauled around the neck! I was pretty much in tears on the way home because I felt like such a bad mommy for not knowing he was infected around his whole neck. I got home so upset and Nick tried to cheer me up telling me Cody looked cute with the short hair and that he loved the short cut because of the heat...but I just wanted my dog with all the matted hair back! He was in so much pain and I feel that he is mad at me for letting him get this ridiculous hair cut. I know many are saying "he's just a dog" but he's my doggy and I want him to look pretty and neat...I went to the vet expecting to pay $70 for grooming treatment and left paying $207 for grooming, shot, and meds! Poor Cody and poor hormonal mommy!

19 weeks preggers!

I can't believe I'm almost halfway through my pregnancy! I really do feel like it has already lasted FOREVER, but from what I hear it will start to fly before I know it! Ever since I have found out it was a boy, everyone has been asking me what the name is going to be. We honestly don't know yet! I mean we had a hard enough time coming up with Cody's name, and he is just our dog! Imagine naming a human!!!
In certain things I am starting to show more, but when I hold my tummy like in this picture you can definately see I got something there. The Baby Center website said today the baby was the size of a large tomatoe. When I went to the doctor last week, the baby was 7 inches long and weighed half a pound!
I have already started to think of what to do for the nursury! I know since all of the furniture is going to be an off-white, we are probably going to use blue and chocolate with the furniture. I think it will all nicely tie in together but I have to decide on what to do for the bedding. I have found a gorgeous fabric but I am still looking around. I'll let everyone in on my designing ideas once I decide on what to do.
So for now, I'm getting bigger by the day!

18 weeks preggers- Pink or Blue Party

So this is such a cute idea my friends had come up with to have a revealing for the sex of the baby. I had never heard of a pink or blue party, but it really was such a fun way to tell friends (family already knew...but they were there).

Italy 2010

17 weeks preggers

This is me posing in front of Ponte Vecchio I am at this awkward stage of pregnancy that I always hear about. I am not "really" showing but all my clothes are starting to get a little too tight for me! I am wearing as many loose fitting clothes as possible...AKA, DRESSES!
While I was gone on my extravagant trip to Italy...I ate, and ate, and ate...oh did I mentioned that I ate?!?!? I would eat a whole pizza to myself just for an afternoon snack! Oh, and don't get me started on the gelato! I can't even count how many times that I tried different flavors!!! But to me, it was TOTALLY worth it!
Italy was an amazing country! Rome was everything and then some of what I expected. Every step I took I would just look around and see these buildings that were so breathtaking! Florence was beautiful too. It was a lot lower key than Rome, not as much hustle and bustle! We then took a take trip to Venice for a day. Venice is one of those places that I can say "I've been there, done that! Check" It was really nice but the whole city was filled with tourists. That city is just one big maze! The whole fam took a gondola ride through the "streets" of Venice. It was so much fun!
Nick and I went and were in true awe over the monstrosity of Michelangelo's David! He stood 17 feet tall and you couldn't help but be in awe. Don't even get me started on one of my favorite parts of the trip, visiting The Vatican! It is something I will never forget!

One of my favorite parts of the trip is when we had rented a car and drove through the Tuscan region from Florence to Rome.

Anyway, I will post some pics later of Italy and of my pregger self later!
