Bumpdate: Week 14

Dear Amelia -
Due Date: March 29, 2011 still. And I just found out its leap year, one more day to be pregnant. Yippie!

Weight Gain: .5 but somehow the doctor had the wrong pre-pregnancy weight (you know, 127 pounds) so it looked like I had gained 8 pounds already. I said "Uhhh...no." and made her change it to reflect that I actually weigh 134.5 ;) I gained 9 pounds with you so I hope to keep it right around there. 

Symptoms: I had a migraine that was killer yesterday. Threw up at work (that was fun, not) and in the middle of the night. Your daddy took good care of me tho. 

What's different this time: I honestly have no idea what I'm having this time. With you, I knew you were a girl the whole time. 

Cravings: The smell of lemons. I think I could squeeze lemon juice in my mouth.

Aversions: Beef and Chicken...still.

Sleep: I really love to sleep. I don't think the 9 hours I'm getting is enough. I could go take a nap RIGHT NOW!

I am loving: You singing to everything. I know this has nothing to do with "the bump" but its pretty funny. Happy Birthday is your fav right now.

I miss: Beer.

I'm spazzing about: A little cramping I had yesterday. 

Best thing about this week: I'm finally getting my facial on Saturday! 

I am looking forward to: See above

Milestones:   3.5" babe, the size of a lemon...coincidence?

Movement: zippo...too early! Maybe next week...I felt you kickin at 15 weeks.

It's a...: we will find out in 40 days. Then let the planning BEGIN!

Exercise: ha

Diet: Whatever sounds good at this point.

Exercise goal for the upcoming week: hahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Other goals: Squeeze lemon juice in my mouth. 

Belly Pic: TBD


Love,
Mom

Bumpdate: Week 13

Dear Amelia -
Due Date: March 29, 2011 but at my last appt...I think she told me to move that up a day but I can't really remember. So I'll just go with the 29th.

Weight Gain: .5. Probably from all of the delish food over the weekend. Daddy and I had really yummy steaks for our anniversary and the football party...there was WAY too much nummy food.

Symptoms: Really sick Monday and Tuesday. On Monday, I even had morning sickness at 9pm. 

What's different this time: It seems to be going faster this time. Probably because you have kept me so busy!!

Cravings: Nothing really this week. 

Aversions: Beef and Chicken

Sleep: Must. sleep. more

I am loving: Diet Coke...1 per day

I miss: Beer and Phyllis

I'm spazzing about: My doctors appointment today! Hearing the heartbeat  :) UPDATE: Heard the heartbeat - 150 bpm and there was lots of movin around while the doc was listening! YAY!

Best thing about this week: The bubble bath I just took!

I am looking forward to: Heartbeat!

Milestones:   Hmmm...the baby is 2" (the size of a Medium Shrimp)

Movement: zippo...too early!

It's a...: wittle tiny babyyyyy. I don't have a gut feeling of what it is at this point. 

Exercise: ha

Diet: Anything de-lish

Exercise goal for the upcoming week: hahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Other goals: Get a facial. My skin is all dry and stuff. Crap. I'll move this out to this week, I never did that last week!

Fun filled weekend!

Dear Amelia -
We had a busy weekend! Friday, we met Kiki, Aubby and Doodie at a park in Bloomington to celebrate Aubrey and Daddy's birthdays. You had so much fun...until you fell down the wooden stairs. Oops.
Saturday, we headed up to St Cloud for Owen and Coltons birthday party. It was at Bounce Depot. What a fun place! They have a bunch of blow up things to jump in and slides. Fun times! 



Sunday, we went over to Ashley's house to watch the Vikings lose. Again. Ugh.

You were so tired after the weekend...so were we!

Love,
Mom

Wisconsin Dells, WI

Dear Amelia -
On Saturday morning, you and I headed to the Wisconsin Dells to meet Mr Stephens and Lydia. Daddy had to meet us later because he had a longer than normal route. 
1st thing we did was go swimming. You slept almost the whole way there so you were ready to get out and play. They had a fun little kiddie pool there. You also went down a super fast slide and went under water. You weren't too sure what to think of that. 
You had fun swinging on the swings with both Mr Stephens & Lydia


Lydia got you a cute little lady bug that you can't go anywhere without. 

Once Daddy go to our hotel, we went out for nice dinner...then back to the hotel where we let you stay up late.

Sunday morning we went shopping around the Dells and were on the road so we could get home by the time of the start of the (disappointing) Vikings game. 

We can't wait to make the Dells a fun tradition!

Love,
Mom

Amelia + Finn

Dear Amelia -
I've said it before and I'll say it again - You and Finn are going to get married someday. Finally Glamma and Martha can really be related. Actually...uncle Billy really thought Wes and Brady were our cousins (story # 345.) We could make that come true. YOU could make that come true. 

We can play this video at your wedding. We are planning a Engagement party now. Nothing like an arranged marriage!

In 3 days, we will be at the Wisconsin Dells with Mr Stephens and Lydia! We are looking forward to it!

Love,
Mom
