5 on Friday!

It's Friday y'all WHOOP WHOOP!!! 

I don't know about y'all but this girl is WAY excited that the weekend is almost here!

Here are my 5 Random thoughts for FRIDAYYY!! 

#1. I absolutely CANNOT wait until the 50 Shades of Grey movie comes out and EVERYONE falls in love with Charlie Hunnam and I can say.. I told you so! I am so tired of all these women complaining that Charlie won't make a good Christian! Newsflash- Honey, you're wrong! I have been a Charlie fan since SOA! The boy has charm like no other and I PROMISE you will fall madly in love with him. He has been my "Hollywood crush" for several years so excitement was an understatement when I heard he would be playing Christian in the 50 Shades movie! Get ready girls! 

#2 I am SO excited that my daddy (Papa C) and my sista (Aunt Gessa) have been working very hard on Bay Bay Powell's Gender Reveal Box! I just cannot wait to find out if there is a sweet baby girl or a sweet baby boy growing inside of me! 

#3 OK so I was totally addicted to these Strawberry Lemonade's from McDonalds when BAM I go through the drive-thru last week to satisfy my craving and they have "discontinued" this item?! I mean really?
Does anyone know where I can get something similar to this? This pregnant woman has needs! 

#4 I am refusing to purchase a bassinet for baby Powell.. I know, I know.. I'm a terrible person. I just DO NOT and mean really DO NOT want my child sleeping in the bed with us! I also don't want to have to go through pure heck when they are too big for the bassinet and have to be moved to their crib! But I have been thinking of purchasing one of these to use for the first few months?! Anyone have one? Like it? Hate it? It's a Rock N Play Sleeper... I have heard some Moms say that these are WAY better than bassinets and easier to transition from this to the crib?! Any thoughts??

Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper - Owl

#5 I am SO excited for all of this FALL weather coming our way! This weekend is Bama's first Home Game and the weather is just perfect for it! I have got my Fall candles burning and all of my Fall decor out! Absolutely LOVE this time of year!

14 Weeks!

I promise to have a better "bump" picture next week! This was from a wedding that B was in this past weekend! 

How far along? 14 weeks TODAY!
Size of Baby? The size of a NECTARINE/between 3.5 to 4 in! 
Total weight gain/loss: NONE- I was SO shocked when my Dr. said my weight was still the same! But I know I have plenty of time to gain! ;/
Maternity clothes: I have been wearing more "stretchy" stuff like my Fall dresses and LINEN pants from Jennaration! ;)
Stretch marks: NO! And I have been lathering up in cocoa butter day and night! 
Sleep: SUCKSSS!!!! I sleep good for a few hours and then toss and turn for the rest of the night! I finally got a pregnancy pillow and I plan to start trying it out VERY soon! 
Best moment this week: MASSAGE yesterday by my sweet friend Chancee! If you are local you should DEF go and see her at Skelton Chiropractor! 
Movement: I still think I feel "flutters" but other Mommies say it's too soon!  
Food cravings/aversions: Dill pickle chips, chips and salsa... but cannot stand the thought of ANY type of meat! Weird, I know! 
Gender: We find out October 11th AND we are having a gender reveal party! SO MUCH FUN! 
Labor signs: Nope.. hopefully not for a LONG while! 
Belly button in or out: INNNN!!!! :) 
What I miss: Sleeping through the night and not feeling tired ALL day! 
What I am looking forward to: finding out if bay bay Powell is a GIRL or a BOY?! 
Weekly wisdom: SLOW DOWN... I need to try and remember that I am TWO people now and I can't continue running around like a chicken with my head cut off all the time! 
Milestone: making it through the 1st trimester alive! ;)

A few weeks back me and my sister, sister N law and HER sister went to see the BACKSTREET BOYS annndddddd DJ Pauly D!!!! 

Can y'all believe that they are still together?! I am pretty sure that their "single" was the very first one that I ever had on cassette!! HA!

It was LOTS of fun but a bit TOO HOTT  and TOO much walking for this prego! BUT we had a great time! :)

Sista Sista

12 Weeks

12 weeks--I promise I will have a "baby bump" picture in the next post! 

How far along? 12 weeks and 5 Days! 
Size of Baby? The size of a LIME/between 2.5 to 2.8 in! 
Total weight gain/loss: NONE as of my last Dr. appt BUT I go back tomorrow and I am thinking I gained a few pounds...
Maternity clothes: NONE yet.. my stomach pokes out.. kind of like when you eat too much BUT I can still wear all of my regular clothes for now. 
Stretch marks: NO! And I have been lathering up in cocoa butter day and night! 
Sleep: It's OK.. I think it would be better if my back was better ( I have had lower back problems for almost a year and it is WAY worse since I got pregnant)
Best moment this week: Cleaning out the spare bedroom to turn into the NURSERY! 
Movement: I THINK I can feel SOMETHING sometimes at night before bed kind of like little butterflies in there.. but OBVI I am not 100% sure that it's baby Powell?! 
Food cravings/aversions: from week 8-10 I craved nothing but cheese fries with ranch.. but I am kind of over that now and today I have craved Dill pickle chips and gummie worms?! Random I know! 
Gender: Hopefully find out at next appointment... Still thinking BOY! 
Labor signs: Nope.. hopefully not for a LONG while! 
Belly button in or out: INNNN!!!! :) 
What I miss: Being able to sleep through the night without going to the bathroom and having a nice little cocktail once in a while! :) #sorrynotsorry 
What I am looking forward to: Dr. Appt. TOMORROW! 4 weeks is just too long to go without hearing that little heartbeat! 
Weekly wisdom: Don't have a yard-sale in 100 degree heat while your husband is out of town.. just about did this Mama in! 
Milestone: Being able to go a whole week without my nausea medicine and not getting sick! Oh the little things! ;)
