We're expecting!
Baby XO, Noelle is due September 2014
Surprise! We are so, so excited! I had the hardest time keeping it a secret for this long from all of you. It almost slipped like, 100 different times in my blog posts. We told my parents and close friends about a week after we found out but decided to wait a little to make it super public. 

Of course I want to share my pregnancy on the blog so I'll be doing weekly pictures and a filling out a little Q&A I found online that'll be fun to share and compare later on.

How far along? 12 weeks
Total weight gain: None. I actually lost weight. I just had food poisoning earlier this week so that might explain that.
Maternity clothes? I bought a few shirts just because I thought they were cute. I think I'm in love with the Liz Lange Maternity collection at Target.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: What is sleep? I get tired easily. I don't know why but sleep has seriously been alluding me. I can barely fall asleep and when I do, I can't stay asleep. Between waking up to pee at night and the dogs snoring, I'm getting about four hours of sleep lately. My doctor prescribed me a (pregnancy approved) sleeping aid but I've yet to take it.
Best moment this week: Not this week but last week we saw the baby's heart beat for the first time. Also, when she started the sonogram, you could see the baby moving which was the craziest thing ever. The heartbeat was 178 beats per minute.
Miss Anything? Sleeping a full night.
Movement: It's too early!
Food cravings: I've been OBSESSED with orange juice. I'd say that's my only craving lately.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Chicken.
Gender: We don't know yet. We find out April 21st. Everyone thinks it's a girl!

Labor Signs: -------
Symptoms: --------
Belly Button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Super cranky, to be honest. I get upset way more easily then I normally do. 
Looking forward to: Finding out the baby's gender. April seems SO far away!
