I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

OK, so I really have no excuse as to why I've been MIA for so long. I guess I have been somewhat busy but I read other people's blogs about 100 times a day. I probably could have updated my own! Blogging is soooo hard for me!!
Anyway, onto the good stuff! Matt and I found out what we are EXPECTING a little baby girl due June 8. 2012. We found out on Monday, October 4th to be exact!! Wahooooooo!! Our dream come true! We are absolutely elated to become parents for the first time! Tomorrow, I will be 18 weeks, time is flying! The next time I update, I will post some ultrasound pictures and pictures of the nursery thus far.  I am going to the doctor tomorrow so hopefully I will have some current pictures to share!
How far along? 18 weeks (tomorrow)
Total weight gain: I stepped on the scale this morning and found out that I'm up one more pound than I thought...a total for 4 now! I will find out for sure tomorrow at the doctor though!
Maternity clothes? Not yet...I have some super cute ones that I can't wait to wear! I bought two belly bands today. I might start wearing them soon because it seems super comfortable!
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: Sleeping okay...I randomly wake up and start thinking of all things baby....then it's hard to fall back to sleep. I get up to pee 2-3 times a night now too.
Best moment this week: Best moment this week was feeling Hallie kick for the first time on New Years Eve!!!!!
Miss Anything? Occasionally miss hacving a glass of wine...or a mimosa (although I never regularly drank them except in Jamaica)
Movement: See above! I also think that I was feeling something going on in there the other night. It almost felt like a pulse/heartbeat right by my ribs. It may've been something else...but the though that it might be my sweet baby girl made me smile.
Food cravings: Totally random stuff! The cravings have officially set in! Mostly fruit, gummy worms, waffles and donuts. Healthy, healthy!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, the things that grossed me out early on no longer do!
Gender: Girl :))))))))
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Peeing nonstop, increased appetite, pimply/oily face (grrrrr), baby shopping addiction ;)
Belly Button in or out? innie
Wedding rings on or off? on...and very loose
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY as can be! How could life get any better?!
Looking forward to: my doctor appointment tomorrow! It is always nice to hear the baby's heartbeat and to get confirmation that the baby is healthy and growing as she should!!
I promise I will try to be better about blogging. Again, tomorrow I should have a belly picture, ultrasound pictures and nursery progress!
