Week 19 😍❀️

What a great milestone! We are finishing up week 19 and Sunday it will be our half way mark. Talk about encouraging and exciting. I couldn't be happier.  

This week was busier than normal. I had a full day of jobs Monday and Tuesday had an activity with the women from my church and it was so fun to get to know new friends and keep myself busy! That night we went to a little dinner for our friend Ashley, who is sadly moving to Houston. Somehow we didn't take one photo, but that was for sure a downer this week having her move. 

The next day was just as crazy and ended with a night at home with the husband which was so needed. I feel like I got so good at having a mellow schedule and then this week was insane.Thursday  we had my favorite night which is bunco! It's seriously the highlight to my week.  

Friday we left town for a wedding for our friend Steve and Carol Ann from law school and got in town, slammed busy the entire weekend and we are leaving early tomorrow morning to head home.  

My belly didn't love the driving and also I am sure was confused about all of the dancing ha. But overall it was a great week and I'm so excited to finally hit the half way mark. Feels like a dream. She kicks a ton, and I love it so much! She really is the best. πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“

MARAE floral

I love love a good project! I have been feeling so burnt out and so I took a few month break on just fun shoots, and now I get to have the best time bringing back some fun ideas!

New York fashion week really inspired me to implement some type of collage. So I went and bought a lot of floral magazines and cut out all of the pieces of flowers that I could find, and then group them all onto a posterboard making a collage! We use that as our backdrop and I thought it turned out so fun and so creative, mostly for me just allowing myself to do something different! I'm so grateful for such a good friend to jump on projects like this with me! It makes it that much more fun! Β

Week 18 πŸŒΈπŸŽ€πŸ’•

This week was pretty amazing with little lady. I had so many fun milestones that it's just making me so excited.  

We started the week with our big 18 week ultrasound and it was perfect. She doesn't have a cleft lip, no club feet, and they saw all of her heart and blood vessels! That night I thought I had felt her but I wasn't sure. I woke up Wednesday morning and totally knew it was her. She gave me a solid 30 minutes of kicking me and it was glorious. I felt so happy and felt like we had made it to a whole new level with our pregnancy. 

I have been pretty calm this pregnancy but there is always fear in my mind, so having these reassurances all week has truly been amazing!   

I met with my doctor Wednesday and all is well, and I won't go back for another 3 weeks, right before I go to Ireland.  

We love little girl so much. I think I truly underestimated the love I'd end up feeling for her. I can't wait for her to grow more and feel her more regularly.  

baby size: green bell pepper πŸ’š

weight gain: 114 so far! Almost back to my weight I began pregnancy at! It was so much easier to eat this week.

Sleep: Okay! Dreams are getting nuts. Some nights I sleep so well and some are awful. Starting to get super tight belly at night and it's so uncomfortable to lay down, but that's okay! 

Cravings: strawberry lemonade, Taco Bell nachos, chips and queso, ice cream Β 

feeling : really happy. Felt her kick so many times, and knowing she is healthy and strong is an amazing feeling. 

Gender: πŸ’•πŸŽ€πŸŒΈπŸ’•πŸŽ€πŸŒΈ baby girl! Been buying her a few things for when she comes! 

Peak moment: feeling her kick. What a feeling. Every time I still get so excited. I miss her every second she doesn't kick!
