3 weeks too late.

it has been almost a full month since my last post. bad bad bad. & besides spending a week away in chicago, i don't even have an excuse.

week 13: we had our NT scan & found out baby G to be is a he! our results came back incredibly well :)

^^ husbands tshirt.

^^ my cousins wedding

week 14:  we were off to the windy city for husbands central regional work conference. i only had to stop ONE TIME in the 7 hour drive to go potty. definitely chalking that up as a success. i spent the days lounging in the hotel room, wandering to various cafe's and swimming in the pool. we also went shopping at Zara and bought our little man his first outfit! love Zara. we also shopped for daddy. we left the store with some stylish things and i left a bit sad that there isnt one here in the cities. However, we'll return to Chicago every January for the conference, so next year little man and i can shop galore :)

week 15: i have no idea what happened this week... we came home from chicago?! i didnt make the 7 hour trip home with only one bathroom break though. 

week 16: we booked our baby moon for florida! were leaving on monday, feb 18th when i'll be 18w! & i realized just how big my boobs were already getting. we took our honeymoon in september in which i bought new suits for, and suddenly those suits dont have the best fit anymore. we also had our 16w check up! our original doctor had just left to do an emergency delivery for twins so we ended up seeing another, but thankfully all turned out well. found the heartbeat with the doppler right away at 168bpm! doctor told us he could hear baby kicking in there. just a few days later though, i was having horrible cramping that kept me up all night so i went back in and saw my original doctor. we found the heartbeat again at 155bpm and Dr. W told me that baby is moving around an awful lot. i cant wait until i can feel him!!

week 17: still not feeling baby, but i know thats to be expected for first time mama's. i'm also pretty sure that my placenta is still in the front, so its cushioning between the babe and my belly. we went to a gala for husbands work, i wore a flowy maternity gown that made me feel everything but cute. we're starting to pack for florida, and i discovered some awesome things : husbands side of the closet. ive worn one of his tshirts before, but im starting to really venture into anything thats his is now mine. & we celebrated our 3rd valentines day together!

^^ husbands shirt, again.

happy valentines day my love!

& last night, we went to the Book of Mormon that was playing at the Orpheum Theater here downtown. it was good, i wouldnt say i'd go again. i surely didnt love it as much as Hairspray or some other, but the performance was outstanding and they had the crowd laughing on multiple occasions. were spending the rest of our weekend cleaning the house, getting the dogs ready to be babysat by my dad for a week and packing. 

i promise to be a better blogger when we return! xxo - here we come florida!!
