Mini D's 1st Trimester (Weeks 4-8)

November 8, 2015
(Test 1 at 3 weeks, 5 days )

We just got done with a full family day at a Joe Mauer bowling event and I just decided to take a test. I wouldn't have said we were trying, we just weren't preventing anything.

It was positive.

November 11, 2015
(4 weeks, 1 day)

We celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary with a couples massage and dinner at Wildfire!

November 15, 2015
(4 weeks, 5 days)

We had our family Christmas today on my Dad's side like we do every year. Usually it's a drinking event, but when my Mom asked me if I was bringing any wine, I said "No, I didn't think so, but I could." She immediately got suspicious. We ended up telling her that day, but swore her to secrecy because we were going to wait until Christmas to share the news with everyone. I did get to snuggle up my Cousin, Nicole's little boy, Brantley.

November 16, 2015
(Test 2 at 4 weeks, 6 days)

I waited a week after the first one I took and then took another test and that one was positive, too!

Thursday, November 27, 2014
(6 weeks, 3 days)

We celebrated Thanksgiving with our families and I ate so much. It was a great day with family. That's another day that we usually have some wine. My Aunt and Uncle brought some with to my parents house from their local winery and of course I couldn't have any. I don't think anyone thought anything of it though.

(Week 8)

Today is Jingleball day! Such a fun night, but I was so exhausted by the end of the night. I was definitely struggling the next day and it took me pretty much all week to catch up on sleep and rest. One of my favorite pics of the night is us with Iggy Azalea.


Maternity Clothes: Not yet.

Sleep: I am so tired these weeks 4 through 8. I am exhausted when I come home from work and take 3+ hour naps on both Saturdays and Sundays. I remember being tired with Hailey, but not THIS tired.

Best Moment: Taking the first test and surprising Wayne with it and then taking the second test and confirming it. Also, as much as pregnancy symptoms suck sometimes, I am thankful for them because they let me know something is going on.

Movement: None yet.

Food Craving: None yet, except I can't get enough cheese and I need to eat all the time.

Food Aversions: None yet.

Morning Sickness: None. With Hailey I couldn't take my prenatal in the morning without food, otherwise I would feel nauseous. This time I can take it anytime and feel o

Gender: Don't know yet, but we will be finding out.

Symptoms: Tired (see above) and HUNGRY! Again, I remember having to eat more often with Hailey, but seriously I HAVE to eat every two hours or so. It's ridiculous. I feel like that's all I'm doing.

Also, my boobs hurt SO bad. It's painful. They are OK during the day when I am wearing a bra, but the transition at night when I take it off is excruciating, so sometimes I have been even sleeping with my bra on. I know that may be TMI, but it's the truth.

I feel like I am more achy and sore this time around. Like my body is gearing up and getting ready for this baby. I was pretty miserable those first weeks.

What I miss: Not being tired. I am just tired ALL THE TIME.

What I'm looking forward to: Our first Dr. appointment at 9 weeks on 12/17/14.

I'm lumping weeks 4-8 together, because basically those 4 weeks I had the same type of symptoms. I was so tired and hungry and it took everything in me to keep going. I tried to take it day by day.

Stay tuned for more Mini D updates.

Friday Faves

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! Here are some of my favorites from this week.

My Husband and how sexy he looks working out. 

I've been obsessed with Strawberry Julius this week. I've gotten one almost every day this week.

I am loving this show. My Husband started watching this show for Fox for his job when it first came out and he was hooked from the start. He had been hounding me to watch it, so last week while home with a sick Hailey I binged watched it. Now I am hooked, too. Not only to the show, but the music. Love it and the music and I can't wait to get my hands and ears on this album in a few weeks! Also, I just happen to have an iTunes gift card from Valentines Day from the Hubs as well! Woohoo!

I love my Happy Mommy shirt from Happy Mommy Box. It's super comfy and says exactly what I am...a HAPPY MOMMY!

This pretty much sums up itself.

Have a great weekend!

January 2015 Goal Update

January Goal update!

 photo One_zps82e90047.jpg

Work out at home.
Start an at home yoga DVD. I am not much of a work out at home type person or a yoga person, but I'm hoping to change both in 2015 and be more OPEN.

FAIL...BIG FAT FAIL. I cannot find, nor have I really looked for the yoga DVD. My goal is to try and find it first and then actually start it. One of the problems is that we need to get our carpets cleaned in our basement BAD, and so right now I dislike being down there.

Organize Photos.

I recently took over 1,000+ photos off my phone and organized them into the appropriate folders, which was a huge anxiety lifter, but now I have to get updated with blogging them, etc. I know I will not get the ole blog here updated with ALL the pictures/updates, but I would like to get started at least. Fingers crossed.

I am organizing pictures and posts for baby updates, so it's not 100% fail, but I didn't get anything actually posted, so it's mostly a FAIL.

 photo Three_zpsa0c16959.jpg

30 minutes a day.

Set a goal of at least 30 minutes when I get home each day to get Hailey and I settled, dinner started and other little miscellaneous chores around the house, before I get totally distracted by TV and social media.

This has been accomplished for the most part, but is one thing I want to continue in the future.

Upstairs loft area/crawl space.

Our upstairs is in desperate need of organizing. It's our catch all space and has gotten WAY out of hand. Another space that needs organizing is our crawl space downstairs.

FAIL. I didn't get to this one at all.

Hailey's old clothing.

This goes along with the upstairs area. I've been putting Hailey's old clothes up there for quite sometime and need to get them into bins. I bought the bins, but I just haven't had the time or energy to get this done.

Another FAIL. I didn't get to this one at all.

Put Christmas away.

I always dread this part. Partly because it's tedious and partly because I hate that Christmas is over and would love to just keep my tree up all year long. There's nothing like the twinkly lights on the tree at night. I'm hoping to get this done and all put away this coming weekend.

More fruits and veggies.

I have been such a slacker lately on eating my good foods (especially veggies) but, I want and NEED to change that.

Fruits have been successful, but veggies have still been lacking.

One of my goals in January is to just blog more. I've been such a slacker since about last June. I was going through several emotional personal issues over the summer, which made me not want to blog at all. I thought I would be back in September and even did THIS post. I was pretty good in October, but then fell off the wagon again. But with the new year, comes new goals right?

Mostly a fail, but still a goal.

Stay tuned for February Goals!

I'm excited for the Superbowl. I'm actually more excited for the food, but I'm pregnant, so that's nothing new.


I finally upgraded to the iPhone 6 and I LOVE IT!!!


I have been using my 2015 planner and am so happy with it.


I have been loving this artist and his music lately.


This is my favorite quote/saying lately and something I have been working on, too!

Hope y'all have a great weekend!
