15 Weeks

Not much new going on in the Teddy bump watch. This picture is again taken in the morning. I have started gaining weight so stand by. I'm sure it will pop pretty soon!

Since there isn't much exciting to see, here is a cute picture of Boudreaux.

Sara this one's for you!

My friend Sara has been giving me grief for the nonexistent belly pictures. I have been taking them in the morning, before eating, so that I can tell what is just from Teddy. I've also been flashing her my new super weird maternity pants that she thinks I shouldn't wear yet! So this is for her! My old pants fit but aren't comfortable anymore and the maternity ones are too big but I don't have to remember to button them back up when I see people so that's my pick! I may not have a big belly yet but there is just no where for things to spread out anymore. It all sticks out. By the way, I tried the belly band things and didn't like it. Too tight for me.

So here ya go. Here is an almost 14 week middle of the day photo. My Bou Bear kept pushing the door open since he saw me grab the camera so he got to be in the picture.

Sara, you get to be with me all weekend in a bathing suit! Be ready for more belly flashing!

12 weeks - July 6th

Here is my 12 week belly picture. I can actually see a little bump now! Please excuse the disgusting mirror. It's been a home improvement weekend and not a cleaning one.

5 Year Anniversary and Baby's First Concert

For our five year anniversary we celebrated with 48,000 of our closest friends, and a couple of sweet friends we actually chose to go with, at the Dave Matthews Concert in Noblesville. We LOVE his concerts and luckily got to attend both nights (he does a different concert every night so ya gotta go to both). Robert Earl Keen opened for him as well so it was a little taste of Texas too. The first night we had seats under the pavilion which was super lucky since a squall blew through. The next night we were on the lawn but still had a great time!

9 weeks - June 17th

I don't know if you can tell much of a difference but here is 9 weeks.

First Doctor's Visit - June 16th

This may be long. I am writing this down to help me remember. If you are uninterested just scroll down for the cute picture.

After having the miscarriage last year my doctor had a different plan for monitoring this pregnancy. Since my body never recognized the first baby's loss we can't trust that my body will do what it's supposed to should something go wrong. So as soon as we found out we were pregnant my doctor had me do what felt like a ton of blood draws (and I love needles and blood) to check progesterone and hcg levels for the first few weeks of the pregnancy then do an earlier ultrasound than we did last time. We were supposed to do the ultrasound at 8 weeks but our doctor was going to be out of town so we opted for 9 weeks over having a technician do it. That extra week was torture but we both really love my doctor and knew if it was bad news, or good news, we wanted her to be there.

Almost as soon as my doctor started the ultrasound we could see the baby! Everything looked perfect and we even saw it moving around and wiggling. That was really cool. The baby's heart beat was 184 beats a minute. It has two legs, two arms, a big head, a round belly, a placenta, a yoke sack, and an umbilical cord.

We were both so nervous and really preparing for the worst so we were pretty quiet for the appointment. At the end of the ultrasound the doctor spun around on her chair and yelled "YEA!!!!!!!!!!" then told us to relax and stop worrying. I think we have! Now we have to actually start planning for this kid cause it looks like it's going to show up! So far this baby has some books, a blanket my grandmother crocheted for my first child when I was 16 (yup...great present for a 16 year old), and a cat stuffed animal. We've got some work to do!

Mark said that the baby looks like a Teddy Graham so that's what we've been calling it! Meet little Teddy!

6 weeks - May 26th

We will see how long I post belly shots with the shirt lifted but here ya go for now. This is the first picture I took at 6 weeks. I'm really bloated so other than the poochiness from that there really isn't anything to see. But my people spoke and I answered!

WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!! After getting the very faint second line on the pregnancy test we sent this picture out to our families announcing the good news! Boudreaux LOVES having his picture taken so he was a glad to pose. Get used to seeing lots of him because he loves photo shoots and Mark and I are happy to oblige. We are pretty sure he is the cutest dog on the planet and that deserves lots of photographic proof.
