Pregnancy update & Gender reveal :)

Hey everyone!

I'm 16 weeks along now, & really starting to feel my energy & motivation come back!  Thank God.  There is NOTHING like first trimester nausea & exhaustion, especially while raising little ones & running a company at the same time.

At 14.5 weeks along, we went to get an ultrasound "sneak peak" to find out the gender... because I am quite possibly the most impatient pregnant woman alive.  I COULDN'T handle the anticipation any longer!

It's....... a....... BOY!!!

Lol & there he is.... looking like a baby alien still.  It almost looks like he's grinning for us! :)  

I know most people would think I freaked out that it was another boy.  Yes, I wanted a girl, but I wanted a boy also.  As long as my baby is HEALTHY... that's all I care about!  I think it's awesome that God wants me to be an all boy mom.  He knows I'm a tough girl that can handle the craziness & dirt.  Having 3 younger brothers prepared me for this, & I'm SO excited for the fun we're going to have  with our family of 5.  We are done after this!

We announced it to our friends & family with a gif made by the "Boomerang" app, but here's a pic from when we did the announcement:

And here are more belly pics continuing on from the last time I posted:

For fun, here's a pregnancy quiz I've done before on my blog during my last pregnancy, that I got from a friend:

Month/Week: 4 months, 16 weeks
Total Weight Gain: 5 lbs? Maybe? I don't know I go to my appointment this Thursday.
Feeling: Relieved to have some energy back & less nausea. 
Missing: My toned body, I haven't been to the gym in months! 
Cravings: Lemon water, mostly carbs & blander foods, ice cream!
Anything making you queasy: The smell of bacon or sausage cooking in the morning, the smell of coffee (but I still drink it), mostly any weird smells first thing in the morning. Rest of the day I'm pretty good.
I'm Loving: Knowing it's a BOY!  I've been on Pinterest & dreaming of how I'll decorate his nursery & what fun things I will buy & make for him.
Happy or Moody: I was very moody first trimester but it's really getting better now! So happy!
Symptoms: Mild nausea in the morning, ITCHY BOOBS, my left ankle gets swollen when I'm on it for too long...
Sleep: I'm doing pretty good because I take a unisom at night for nausea, & it helps me sleep. Between the frequent potty breaks of course.
Wedding Rings On Still?:  Yes never had the swollen fingers.
Looking forward to: Vacation this summer with my family!

Officially a boy mom forever & SO excited about it.  Can't wait for upcoming projects to blog about, soon!


  1. The body in the wake of doing hard workout or practice on rec center is constantly flawless, fit and appealing body for each ladies or men gets, take a gander at this excellent women remaining on a rec center with grinning appearances and fit body they are genuinely looking great.
