14 Weeks

I liked the first picture better, but my t-shirt was bunched up at the bottom so it makes me look a little bigger than I am, so I pulled my shirt down more in the second picture. Now that that's out of the way - haha...

I am: 14 weeks pregnant - my second trimester starts this week!
Size of Baby: Baby Ussery is the size of a lemon
Total Weight Gained: No weight gained yet
Maternity Clothes: I have a nice collection started. I also have several tops that aren't "maternity", but will work well when I get bigger. I'm wearing maternity jeans in this picture. My other jeans are just a tad tight. These are a little big right now, but very comfy!
Gender: We don't know yet, but will find out in early October - can't wait...only about 5-6 weeks.
Name: We have our names picked out, but waiting to reveal his or her name once we find out.
Movement: No movement yet
Sleep: Overall, I'm sleeping really good.
What I Miss: (I decided I would try to think of somethin…

If you know me at all, you won't ask me to profess my love for FOOTBALL. You already know the love and passion I have for the greatest sport ever! (Insert my husband's plea for baseball as the greatest sport ever, although he loves football almost as much as I do). Nevertheless, it's that glorious time of year and we ARE ready for some football.

High school football in Texas kicked off last night. There's nothing quite like the sight of stadium lights in the distance or the sound of marching bands and annoucers coming from the stadium. My Bronchos are playing in Odessa as I type, although it's not looking too good thus far - ouch. We have plans to go to a Royse City Bulldog game in a couple of weeks. It should be a fun Friday night. If all goes according to plan, we will make our way to Odessa at the end of October to watch the Bronchos battle the Panthers in the annual cross-town rival game. I can taste the cotton candy now.

College football will start next week.…

12 Weeks

I am 12 weeks pregnant!

Here's what's going on...
I am: 12 weeks pregnant
Size of Baby: Baby Ussery is the size of a lime
Total Weight Gained: I really haven't gained any weight yet. I actually lost a couple of pounds in the first few weeks, which is normal, plus I was walking daily and eating really well. I have put back on those 4 pounds, but still weigh about the same as I did before we got pregnant.
Maternity Clothes: My Mom a.k.a. "Mamaw" and I together have purchased a few pieces of clothing so I have a good collection started. There are a couple pairs of jeans that are a tad too tight, but I'm wearing them with a belly band. I also have several tops that aren't "maternity", but will work well when I get bigger.

11 weeks

As of yesterday, I am 11 weeks! I have added a pregnancy tracker to the side of our blog. Look for the pregnant lady in the green box in the right column.

Since we announced we were pregnant, we have received SO many sweet e-mails, cards and phone calls. It was a rush of well wishes and congratulations. AWESOME! I hope to keep up with my/our weekly progress through pictures and "stats". We'll see how it goes.

With that being said...
