Magazines & Books

24 May

12 weeks pregnant today! Today Baby George is the size of a lime or tangerine!

Purchased some magazines and books today, doing some more research.


Fit Pregnancy, Pregnancy & Newborn, “Oh, Baby!” by Tia Mowry (needed a funny book, already read Jenny McCarthey’s book years ago just because I liked her, might reread it again.), and a non-baby book “The Thinking Fan’s Guide T Walt Disney World: Magic Kingdom” by Aaron Wallace.

I read those two magazines in 3 hours… 3 HOURS FOR TWO MAGAZINES!? I am so full of (limited) knowledge right now it’s crazy… and reminds me that I need to still do tons more. Oooh well… Anyone a fan of these mags or have read Tia Mowry’s book? Or if your a Disney fanatic like me, read Aaron Wallace’s book?

I needed some new reading. I have some books on my Nook, three to be exact, that I am currently reading that I keep switching between. I have temporarily lostinterest and needed something different. I did find an old book I never finished yesterday and finished it within a half hour. It was a book I bought July 2012 on my trip to Disney World and I read majority of it. Then I found another book I have had for a few years, wanted to start it again but I felt like I can save that for something to read this summer.

It’s Hard Out Here For A Shrimp” by Pepe the King Prawn and “The Tao of Pooh” by Benjamin Hoff.

What books or mags are you reading? (especially Disney books, my fav!) You can only buy so much on the Nook! Enjoy!

First Ultrasound

29 Apr

Today I had my first ultrasound! My HUSBO went with me and it was just an awesome experience.

Today I am 8 weeks and 3 days pregnant.


We were surprised how loud and strong the heartbeat was, it was shocking! The heartbeat was 167 bpm and baby is almost an inch,  so exciting! Baby (baby George as I like to call it, until we find out the sex, hehe) is doing well! My next appointment is next month, not sure what that visit will bring but I cannot wait! It’s super awesome to finally see that there is an actual baby growing  in my belly, haha. It’s just extra real feeling… 😉 We got six pictures and I placed them on our fridge until I can find a suitable frame or baby book to start out with.

I am currently trying to get on track with some early research about… well, anything! I want to start getting info now and decide what I will or will not be doing when baby George does arrive! There is a lot to think about, all very interesting and again, exciting. I have a while to do this research but it doesn’t hurt getting it done now! Also I’m gonna take this opportunity to complain about my boobs… TMI, sorry. Friday I asked HUSBO, “Do my boobs look bigger?” he says no. Saturday (his birthday) I asked again and he says “HELL YEAH!” and they were noticeably bigger… like HUGE. Pain in the ass, haha. Uncomfortableness is just apart of the territory. I haven’t been bad off though. Just bloating, a little nausea, sore breasts, back ache, head ache, cramps, leg cramps, and just kind of all around uncomfortableness.  Oh and cravings, I am constantly hungry! Whew… I know it will get worse, so I’m trying to keep the complaining to a minimum haha.

Last week, April 22nd, was my very first prenatal visit, got checked out, got to meet my doctor, nothing exciting. We celebrated my HUSBO’s birthday this weekend, his golden birthday. We went out and he invited some friends, I was the designated driver, obviously. Nothing else really exciting as of now… boo! Maybe next time!
