Bumpdate // week 18

How far along? As of Christmas day I’m 18 weeks! Almost halfway to meeting baby Penny 🙂

Gender? Girl

Weight gain? 11 lbs

Maternity clothes? Not yet, just sticking to leggings.

Sleep? Weird dreams but other than that sleep has been wonderful.

Best moment lately? Getting cute baby clothes for Christmas 🙂

Food cravings? Fresh strawberries with angel food cake and whipped cream!

Movement? Tiny feelings that I’m guessing are baby girl but nothing too distinct.

Size? She’s now the size of a sweet potato. (My other app says she’s the size of a croissant!)

Symptoms? Just hungry haha

Looking forward to? My mid pregnancy scans to see how she’s measuring out!


Hope you have a wonderful weekend!



Bumpdate // week 15

Theres a tiny bump now! At our 14 week ultrasound we heard babys heart beat again and it was perfect and doc said she was moving all over the place 🙂

How far along? 15 weeks

Gender? Girl 🙂

Weight gain? 5lbs

Maternity clothes? Not yet

Sleep? Sleep has been great along with naps a couple times a week

Best moment lately? Jake picked out some stuff for her while he was out shopping and its the cutest thing to me 🙂

Food cravings? Peanut butter and Jelly with milk, kraft singles (haha) and fruit – strawberries, kiwis, apples, & mandarin oranges.

Movement? I think its still too early but I have felt little fluttering feelings when I’m laying in bed and I feel like its baby…? but could also just be everything stretching and moving in there.

Size? Baby is the size of an avocado 🙂

Symptoms? Back pain and feeling sick if I haven’t eaten in a while.

Looking forward to? Christmas 🙂

Have a great week!



Bumpdate // week 12


 There’s not much of a bump yet but I want to document everything to come back and read in the future 🙂 so here we go! 

How far along? 12 weeks

Weight gain? I haven’t checked but probably a couple pounds…

Maternity clothes? Not yet but leggings are a daily occurance because pants are SO uncomfortable.

Sleep? I sleep good on and off. Its been hard to get comfortable and I end up waking up multiple times a night. (And I know sleep is just going to get worse and worse ahhh!) Naps have been amazing though.

Best moment? So far my favorite moment was hearing the heart beat and seeing baby moving their arms and legs all around at our last ultrasound 🙂

Weirdest moment? Sometimes I just sit and think about actually having a real live baby that is ours and it just doesn’t seem real. It seems too good to be true. And then I cry about it because: hormones.

Food cravings? In weeks 4-10 I craved raw veggies with ranch, war wonton soup, turkey sandwiches, and cookies and milk. In the last 2 weeks I’ve just been craving apples, berries, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with a glass of milk.

Movement? None yet (too early) but I can’t wait to feel them move for the first time.

Gender? Not sure yet! I always thought i’d have a feeling of whether it was a boy or girl but I have no feeling whatsoever. Its so weird!

Size? Baby is the size of a plum 🙂

Symptoms? In the early weeks nausea hit in the morning and anytime I was in the car. Now nausea hits me at night so its easier to handle because I can just go to bed. Besides that I’m basically just starving 24/7 haha

Looking forward to? Thanksgiving! & seeing our baby at the next ultrasound!

Have a great week!



Baby Smith!


Jake and I are so extremely excited to announce that Baby Smith is finally on its way! We cannot wait to be parents and meet him or her in May! Its all I can think about everyday, and what I’m going to eat next. lol

I had a feeling I was pregnant the week before I tested because I had weird intense cramping that i’d never had before and I kept googling it and every website said it was implantation cramping. So I waited a few more days and then tested and sure enough! Jake was still asleep so I decided to try and plan some cute way to tell him. Well after a few hours of not really being able to come up with anything and getting way too impatiant I pulled up a picture of a shirt that said “Be nice to me, my wife is pregnant” and I showed it to him and asked if he wanted me to order it for him. This is how that went….

Jake – “Yeah but when you are pregnant”

Me – “Ok so should I order it now then?”

Jake – “No! When you are pregnant…”

Me – …..”Ok I guess I should order it then….”

Jake- “NO!! Wait till you are pregnant…….Wait……are you pregnant?!”

Ding ding ding! Cue all the happy tears, etc. 🙂 Love him and this little baby 🙂
