15 Weeks!

First off, Merry (late) Christmas and Happy New Year!! What a great Christmas we had in the Avey household! I will for sure be posting soon about our busy Christmas weekend but right now, its time for a baby Avey update!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along: 15 weeks

Size of baby Avey: Avacado (4 to 5 inches, 3 to 5 oz.)

Gender: We had a HUGE surprise last weekend and got to find out early what our little baby Avey is...it's a GIRL!!! Kinley Mae! I'll share the reveal story below!

Maternity Clothes: My mom bought me a pair of maternity jeans for Christmas and I LOVE them! I am still wearing normal tops though.

Movement: None yet but we do have an active little girl on our hands according to the ultrasound last week! She was ALL over the place.

Sleep: I slept like a rock all this week! Sarah over at Nearly Newlyweds recommended I get the Snoogle prenancy pillow and I will be ordering that VERY soon!

Symptoms: Im not sure I'd classify this as a symptom but my face is breaking out terribly! I have never had too much of a problem with breakouts but I sure do now! Also, if you know me you know I like some poof in the hair...well it WILL NOT poof right now! There is zero volume in this girls hair right now! BUT, this is all A-OK with me if it means this little squirt is healthy!

Cravings: Still cutie oranges

Best moment this week: Finding out we are having a precious baby GIRL!! Still hard for me to wrap my mind around!

We had a big reveal party Monday night after we found out we were having a girl!! It was SO fun and I highly recommend doing one! I am going to save pictures, the video and details of the party for another post all of its own but it was better than I even imagined!

I hope everyone has a safe New Year's weekend with family and friends! I know we are looking forward to our annual trip to Tulsa to spend Christmas / New Year's with my Dad's side of the family!

14 Weeks!!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along: 14 weeks!!

Size of baby Avey: Navel Orange (4.5 in., 2 to 3 oz.)

Gender: ?? - 1.5 weeks until we HOPEFULLY find out! (as long as baby cooperates)

Maternity clothes: None yet! Dresses are my best friend right now.

Movement: None yet...I can't wait for this

Sleep: Still sleeping great! Getting up to go to the bathroom about once a night but other than that I am sleeping really well.

Symptoms: Nothing too bad...a few growing pains but nothing to complain about!

Cravings: Still oranges and orange juice

Best moment this week: Just getting to see my belly grow! It seems to be growing so quickly!

This is Nathan and I's last Christmas as just us....I will admit I was a little teary eyed the other day thinking about this. I wasn't sad by any means but I had never really thought about next year and the new traditions we will be making with our little family of 3! Nathan and I are making this Christmas a very special one together since they will never be the same! (I hear they will be better!!)

I know I have been promising to catch up on some posts and I will hopefully get to do that this weekend! Its been crazy with the holidays! This Sunday is Christmas so please take some time this weekend to spend with your loved ones and celebrate the REAL meaning of Christmas! We tend to forget about the real meaning and get so focused on gifts and parties. If it weren't for Jesus, we woudn't get to celebrate the way we do!

I hope you all have a very blessed Christmas season!!

The Avey's!


13 Weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights!

How far along: 13 weeks

Size of baby Avey: Lemon (3 in, 1.5 oz)

Gender: ?? 2.5 weeks until we get to find out!!

Maternity clothes: I bought new pants and lose tops last week on our girls trip to Branson...mine were not fitting great anymore but I am too small for maternity. I have a feeling maternity is just around the corner though!

Movement: None yet...so ready for this!

Sleep: Still sleeping great! I was told this week that I need to invest in an pregnancy pillow. I have been told they are amazing! I might be doing that really soon. Still getting up to go to the bathroom often.

Symptoms: NONE! This is a HUGE blessing. I have felt great and I'm not as sleepy. I can't imagine not feeling good and having to sit at work all day.

Cravings: Still nothing in particular. I am still drinking TONS of OJ. I also have started drinking more milk as well.

Best moment this week: Finding out that we will hopefully know what baby Avey is in 2.5 weeks!!

I'll try to post this week about our girls trip to Big Cedar last weekend as well as our "Meeting with Santa" night on Tuesday at my Aunts! We have a Christmas party every night this weekend so we are busy busy but I am so excited to get to see some great friends! We have been blessed with the BEST friends and I'm so thankful we can get together with them and celebrate the real meaning of the Christmas season! Hope you are all having a GREAT week!

What do you think baby Avey is?? A sweet little boy or a precious baby girl?

12 Weeks

Well here we are again! I am 12 weeks pregnant with Baby Avey as of yesterday and I'm feeling great!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along: 12 weeks

Size of Baby Avey: Peach (3 in. long!)

Gender: ??

Maternity Clothes: Nope...not yet!

Movement: None yet but my books, websites, etc. have all said around 15-16 weeks is when I could possibly feel the baby move for the first time!

Sleep: Still sleeping great....usually one bathroom break a night and I notice I am waking up so thirsty so I am usually drinking at least 1 if not 2 bottles of water during the night.

Symptoms: Feeling GREAT this week! I have more energy and am not as sleepy in the afternoons. I don't think Baby Avey loves mexican food. We ate at Jose's for a birthday party Saturday night and it did not settle well. I have noticed the 2 other times I have eaten it since I found out I was pregnant, I didn't feel well either.

Cravings: Still none. Loving orange juice still but my Dr. said that is a good thing to crave because of the folic acid and vitamins it provides.

Best moment this week: I went to the doctor last Thursday and it went great! I got to listen to the precious heartbeat again and it was 174 bpm! Crazy! It is the neatest sound ever.

I am leaving after work today with MIL and SIL to go to Big Cedar in Branson for a couple of days and can't wait! It is a much needed few days away. We plan to shop until we drop, eat whatever we want, girl talk, watch girl movies, you get my point :) I am so excited to also get to finish up some Christmas shopping. Nathan is leaving today for Alabama today with his Dad and brother to deer hunt so it will be nice to have a couple of days to take my mind off the fact that he is gone for 5 days! Hope you all have a great weekend! Stay safe and stay warm! Its COLD outside!

Maternity Clothes: None yet but I am going to invest in a belly band this week! My britches are getting too tight too fast! Im also having trouble wearing a few of my tops without just looking like i ate too much.

Hope you all have a great week!
