Kona - is becoming a big sister

 Hello, my non furry friends! As you all probably know, my mom is having a baby! Blah Blah Blah, yada, yada, yada! That thing is all I hear about!! The baby did this, the baby did that. What will we call it? Where will it sleep? It is getting old! I just wish they would focus on my needs more, again. What do I want to eat? Where do I sleep?

Speaking of sleep, this human child is already getting in the way of my happiness. I love sleeping by my mom's stomach. OK, fine, I will admit it, I like to sleep there because I feel protective over the little thing. However, lately, mom has been using a pillow on her stomach. The pillow blocks me from my position as Guardian Of The Bump! Sometimes I take matters into my own paws and burrow my way between the disgraceful pillow and my human.

Mom has been really tired lately. We used to play for hours. Now I have to bark at her to get her to notice I am even in the room. 

 My favorite times with my mom are when she comes home from lunch. I climb up on her lap and we just chill for about 15 minutes. I really love these times. Even though my mom's lap is slowly disappearing. I've been trying to come up with a nice way to tell my mom that she is really packing on the pounds. Everything is going right to get gut, and that is my space!

 Mom promises me, and sometimes almost cries when we talk about it, that she will still love me. She said love is meant to be multiplied not divided. I told her she needs to stop watching Sister Wives and take me for a D A M N walk!!
 The best part is, Mom goes to bed at 8:30 or 9:00 and dad and I stay up late together! Some Daddy-Daughter bonding time. We play tug of war, PS4, and I clean out his ears sometimes. I'll admit, Mom growing me a person isn't all that bad! As long as they remember their first love and priority, me. No matter how cute that naked alien thing ends up being. And they such better teach it who is the real boss in this house and how to play catch!!!

Thanks for reading! I am working on being more consistent. BUT lets be honest my life is boring!

Baby P// Week 14 & 15

We're just skipping over week 13. I couldn't get a good picture. Here is week 14's picture:

Here is week 15's update. 
Week: F I F T E E N 
Baby is as big as an: Avocado 
What is going on in the womb: Baby P is squirming around, all of his/her joints can move, and s/he might even be doing cute wittle hiccups! 
How is Mom? I am doing so much better! The second trimester is where it is at, man! I have more energy, I am not nauseous at all. I am, however, weepy. I sometimes cry and I don't know why. My bump is growing at a fast pace, I am pretty much only in maternity clothes now. 
Cravings or food aversions? Mmm I just have not had an appetite at all. For anything. ever. except ice cream. 
Philip: He is very excited, he has been working hard on finishing the basement so that we can move all of the stuff in the office down there to make room for the baby. He is also so supportive, and so handsome. 
Total Weight Gain: I am up to 7 lbs now!! Makin' gains! (It feels like it's in my belly and face though)
Sleep: Pretty terrible. Sleeping on my side is the worst. My hips are achey and sore. 
Best Moment of the Week: I FELT THE BABY MOVE!! It seems way too early but, at the same time, it was the weirdest gas bubble/flutter/move on a weird diagonal sensation that I have never, ever, ever, ever felt before. I choose to believe it was Baby P!!

Nursery Inspiration

I am getting suuuper excited to start getting the nursery ready. The current office is where the baby will reside. It is currently a super cool teal-y color. If you look at my bump pics you can sometimes catch a glimpse.

I want the room theme to be Michigan. NOT as in the University of, I am more of a State girl myself. But as in the state of Michigan. Flint, Detroit, maybe some Tigers in there.

As far as colors if it is girl I want to add gold and coral to the teal. Or if it is a boy I would like to add navy and maybe a light green. I am unsure. I would like a dresser/changing table that is a pop of color.... so much to think about

We really need to finish the basement and move the piano out and then it is game on, nursery! 

Here as some visuals of what I am thinking for the nursery I am thinking: 




This is the last week of my 1st trimester!! I am looking really forward to finding out the gender of the baby and having the energy to clean my house again!

Baby P// 6 Weeks

Week: S I X
Baby is as big as a: Sweetpea
What is going on in the womb: Baby P is developing his/her cute wittle face! There is also a little bump but I am 90% sure that is from the mac and cheese and cheeseburgers haha!
How is Mom? This was a surprisingly good week for me. I had a ton of nausea for a few days but it got better toward the weekend. Had some other ehem, digestive issues. I had my first doctor appointment, that was so surreal. Sitting there, alone, with just a sheet over me, it all started to become very real. very, very real. 
Cravings or food aversions? This week I could not get enough mac and cheese. I also really wanted guac and I opened a new package and it was soupy - I dry heaved.
Prayer for baby: Dear Jesus, please let me be a good mom to this baby. Continue to keep baby safe and growing healthy. And please, let his/her entrance into this world be quick and easy :) Amen
Anything else? So I had my first appointment with my doctor this week. But I really do not think I want to have a doctor at my birth. Just a midwife and a doula. Philip and I are meeting with MidMichigan Midwifery in a few weeks. I asked my doctor about working out and as he slammed his fist into his palm he said "I would avoid jet-skiing and horseback riding" Point taken.

Baby P // Week 5

There was a bit of confusion last week: I am now 12 weeks along but I had these posts written along the way so I wouldn't forget everything :) 

Week: F I V E
Baby is as big as an: Appleseed
What is going on in the womb: Baby P is forming all the building blocks for the major organs. 
How is Mom? I feel like puking a lot. But it goes away fairly quickly. I got really nauseous at church and had to run and get a bottle of water. My boobs HURT and are all kinds of heavy. Like sometimes I find myself carrying them when no one else is around. Other than that I am basically just exhausted all of the time and I have to pee out of no where really bad. I am so glamourous. 
Cravings or food aversions? I cannot get enough cheeseburgers!!!! Philip had mayo the other day and I started dry heaving, so that's cool. 
Prayer for baby: Praying everything is going great in there, praying s/he makes it full term. 

My Dearest Appleseed,
I love you so much. You are so tiny but you are having a large effect on me already. You appear to really, really enjoy cheeseburgers. Turns out you hate when Philip (you shall refer to him as father) eats mayo...I hope and pray I am a good mom for you. Keep growing strong and I will do my best to eat good stuff for ya and keep you safe.
Mary. But you can call me Mother Mary.

Baby P // week 4

So, this is weird. I have been dreaming, planning, and wishing for these posts for all long as I can remember. It's super weird to actually be doing one. 
Week: F O U R
Baby is as big as a: poppy seed, aka TEENSY TINY
What is going on in the womb: The primitive placenta is also made up of two layers at this point. Its cells are tunneling into the lining of my uterus, creating spaces for your blood to flow so that the developed placenta will be able to provide nutrients and oxygen to my growing baby when it starts to function at the end of this week. (source)
How is Mom? Little bit of nausea in the morning and my boobs are getting heavier and more sensitive every day, if Kona jumps on them one more time... Also I am a little more weepy than usual. I sobbed when Philip left for camp. Sobbed. Lastly, I am tired most of the time.
