2013 Resolutions




Every year I make certain goals and resolutions that I seem to never keep working at past February. This year with me being pregnant I can’t do my usual lose 100 pounds goal and I think it could be for the best. I want to make sure that I don’t gain another 60 pounds with this pregnancy and really try and keep my weight gain to the suggested 15-20 pounds. So in order to make this a lasting effort I am not necessarily making goals, but doing a more and less kind of thing.

More Walking

More Fruits and Veggies

Less salty foods

Less Soda

More Water

Less TV

More reading

Less stress

More Scrapbooking and Crafting

Less Worrying

More Praying

These are just a few of the many things I will be working on this year. Feel free to link up and tell me what you will be working on. I would love to have some accountability partners!

Your Baby in Week 12 of Pregnancy

By now, your baby weighs a full half-ounce and is about the size of a large plum. Most of his systems are in place, though there’s still plenty of maturing to do. For one thing, his fetal digestive system is beginning to practice contraction movements necessary for eating, and his bone marrow is busy making white blood cells — weapons against germs once he’s out of your safe haven. The pituitary gland (at the base of the brain) has started producing the hormones that’ll enable him (or her) to make babies of his (or her) own in a couple of decades or so.


Yes folks, that’s right…I am finally pregnant. We couldn’t be more thrilled to know we have a little pumpkin growing in the oven. 🙂 Little Jason wants a baby sister, but daddy is pretty sure we are having another boy. We will just have to wait and see. I am fairly sure we will find out the sex of the baby sometime in February. It would be nice to buy some ruffles and bows, but I will be happy with a happy healthy baby no mater what the sex.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is gearing up for a fun new year! Here is our card we sent out this year. Happy Holidays from our house to yours!

Dropping 20 Before Baby

Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the web. Today’s post has gotten me very excited. I just got back from visiting with my doctor. I went in to ask several questions about the possibility of getting pregnant and what all I need to do to make a successful pregnancy happen. Read the rest of this entry
