Welcome to my blog! Me and DH are 27. We met at the end of our senior year in High School and married three years later on June 25 2005. We have been TTC for over 3 years. Now we are expecting twins in June. I hope to encourage and be encouraged through our journey.

My little June Bugs @ 11 weeks

How far along? 11 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Babies are now the size of a lime!
Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through it. But fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds, and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future.

Weight Gain? I'm still thinking 2 lbs

Maternity Clothes? Just the bella band

Stretch marks? none.

Belly button in or out? In

Sleep? I get up to use the bathroom around 1:00 each morning and have such a hard time falling back to sleep. Other than that I wanna go to bed at like 8:00, I feel so exhausted after working 10hrs. I feel like the further along I get the sleepier I get.

Foods I am loving? I'm still not loving food but if its salty its my best friend. The smell of hot sauce...oh how I wanna eat it but I know it wont set well once I do.

Foods I am hating? Chocolate...normally I LOVE it. I have noticed that things with a tomato base isn't appealing....lasagna, enchiladas, spaghetti....even though I love these things, normally.

Best moment this week? I know this sounds terrible but it was uneventful. At my doctor appt they only drew blood and took a urine sample.

Movement? none

Symptoms? Morning, Day and Night sickness, fatigue, dizziness and the dreaded constipation.

Genders? No clue

What I miss? eating

What I'm looking forward to? Feeling movement, my baby books says maybe only 1 more month! Being in the second trimester...getting so close!

Weekly Wisdom: Even though you feel guilty about taking meds its the best thing for you.

Milestone: Getting Pregnant

Emotions: I'm starting to feel more myself. Still a little weepy at times.


  1. I also hated things with a tomato base. Like my husband's Nonna's lasagna? I used to love it but when I was pregnant, EW, made me gag. Right up until the very end! I still don't love it now, and I'm 8 1/2 months post partum!

  2. You are almost done with your first trimester...So Crazy:)

    Just a little comment on constipation...I had this in the first trimester and then again now in the third trimester...I was told Magnesium would fix it...So per my Dr. I bought a product called Mama Calm online and its a powder that you mix with any liquid and let me tell you that will fix the issue

    This might be to much info but my hubs for the first time ever was constipated and I told him I can fix that and made him the magic potion as I call it...He then insisted on a double dose and even though I told him he would regret it later he still wanted it so I gave it to him....and my last words will be ready to run to the bathroom...His reply its not like a laxative...I said its worse....Of course I was right and he was up often throughout the night but said man that stuff works great...

    So if you do get it only take what it say:)

    Im so happy things are going so well for you and I cant wait to see that skinny minnie waste of yours get a belly bump going:)

  3. Hi There..I did have the NT test done but our bloodwork portion and US portion came back perfect:) They never found anything wrong with the heart but at I think it was a 18 or 20wk US they saw the two cysts on the brain this was at the anatomy scan and his little kidneys had some extra fluid but both things have resolved themselves:)

    Its better and more accurate to have the NT test done than the Quad screening test....You can sometimes get false positives with the Quad Marker but at that point its to late to get the NT test done so if insurance covers it I would do the NT test now and then if you want extra assurance then you could do the Quad marker to or skip it altogether:)

  4. Oh my so I have terrible pregnancy brain:) Nope the Mama Calm did not upset my stomach...Once I got rid of the constipation instead of taking it daily I would go to every 3 days or if I noticed it coming back would increase it again but it is safe to take on a daily basis but it was just to much for me to take everyday:)
