What are Kris and Jessica having…

September 19, 2009

So, I thought a baby poll would be fun and would help some friends and family voice their opinion. We won’t know the gender of the baby until he/she is born. A LOT of people have come up to me and asked numerous times if I’ve changed my mind and now want to know. The answer is always no. So, anywho, voice your opinion and let us know what you think: are we having a boy or a girl???

This will be fun. We’ll know who’s right in a few short months. 🙂


Top reasons why being pregnant is awesome …

September 15, 2009

baby_duck So, I’ve been asked alot lately about how I feel and how I like being pregnant. Usually, I say  I feel ALOT better than I did two months ago. 🙂 I’ve recently been thinking about what I enjoy most being pregnant, and wanted to share with you.

Here is a few things in random order:

  • After I’ve eaten a big meal, I no longer feel guilty that my stomach grows, and don’t feel the need to suck in my tummy. The stretchy pregnancy pants help too!
  • Sleeping in a little and taking naps is simply listening to what my body and baby needs.
  • I get to daydream more.
  • Midnight food cravings are okay.
  • I get complimented and noticed more, and accept compliments alot better.
  • I can sing and talk to my belly without  feeling and looking crazy.
  • My hubby helps me to do pregnancy exercise
  • I get to start a gift registry and scan away. We’re registered at Target.
  • Feeling life grow inside me is indescribable.
  • When I need to cry it’s no longer called  overreacting, but pregnant.
  • My hair and nails are better than ever.

What about you mom’s? What did you enjoy about being pregnant?

Growing baby….Growing belly!

growing belly

So, here I am 21 weeks going on 22. 🙂 Baby is moving quite frequently. 🙂 I think I just felt the baby kick. It’s alot more different than a flutter.

I am doing well. Eating alot more now. Good thing I crave things like apples and pears. 🙂 I’m retaining more water. My wedding rings are fitting quite snug. Clothes definitely fits different. Haven’t done maternity shopping, but I think I will go buy one of those maternity bands that you put over your regular pants.

I’m excited that fall is here! Yay! I love this time of year. Lots of good stuff happening. 🙂 I have this awesome opportunity to work with elementary school children, doing an after-school program through Salvation Army! I can’t wait to see how this will go.

Well, hope you’re all doing well.
