9 weeks today!

So today I am 9 weeks, and I am starting to feel better from this cold that just won't go away!  I've had this cough for over a week now, and it really stinks!  Other than that, I got what I wished for and morning sickness started about a week before I got sick.  I get nauseous if I don't eat, and then if I try to eat anything other than fruits and vegetables, I just feel sick.  Oh the joys!  I haven't posted any more pictures, 1) because I've not been feeling well and that probably would have translated in the pictures lol and 2) because I don't feel like I've changed all that much from the picture I posted earlier. 

With this cold, and nausea, it's been hard to eat properly...I force myself because I know it is not good for baby, but there's only so much you can force yourself :(  So I haven't really gained any weight yet, and my pants all fit pretty much the same.  I know that I am going to regret saying this later (like I did with the morning sickness), but I wish I was showing more by now!  I don't want a big baby, but I have looked at pictures people have posted on babycenter.com and they look huge!  I don't want to be that big, bu showing a little would be nice :)  Anyway, that day will come soon enough I'm sure :)

One more thing, I found this neat website where you all can participate in it...it's a guessing game on when you think baby will be born, weight, length, & sex.  It's just a fun little game to see what everyone thinks  :)  Here's the link below, and feel free to join in the poll.  Once the baby arrives, I'll post on here who the winner is :)


Love you all!

7 Weeks, 1 Day - Due Sept 27th

Or what ever day baby decides to come :)  It was so magical seeing the little heartbeat on the screen for the first time.  I couldn't help but cry :)  It was amazing to both of us and made it that much more real.  I just pray that the baby continues to grow and be healthy, and I can't wait to meet him or her in September (or October if I go late) lol  Anyway, here's introducing baby Pena!  or as Karla is calling it, Fergie lol

5 Weeks

So here's where the story begins...I took a test on Jan 15th because I was just not feeling like myself...I was hungry every couple of hours and extremely irritable.  Little things would make me so mad, and I just couldn't let it go.  So I decided to take a dollar store test just to see, and it was positive!  I took another test the next morning to make sure, then went out and bought a digital just to see the actual words hehe

So here are my "pre-baby" body pics I took...I was actually 5 weeks here on Jan 19th.  I thought that taking scale pics would be fun just so that I could record that as well and have motivation once the baby comes to get back to that original weight LOL

My First Blog

This is just a test! lol I wanted to start a blog in order to share pictures of the up-coming months of my pregnancy and then family pics beyond birth. I think it will be a neat way to showcase the important things happening, and keep you (my close friends and family) up to date on the happenings of our lives.

So there you have it...I hope you enjoy my blog, and bare with me while I learn the ins and outs of blogging!

Love you!
