Introducing...Baby Pancakes


Happy almost Thursday Friends...one and a half more days 'til Friday and i am just excited!
I have NOTHING going on this weekend but relaxation....yaaaah!!

I wanted to share some details about Baby Pancakes!  
I am not sure how often i will discuss my pregnancy on a weekly/monthly basis, 
although i LOVE reading other mommy-to-be's updates but honestly it's just not me.  
Plus i am not sure if i can keep up with the picutres and dates and all that comes with it! 
 Too much pressure!!!
Therefore i will probably blog more about some of the issues and topics 
that has come up as a result of being pregnant, being a new Mom and a Mrs! 
 I will of course share important details as my pregnancy progresses.

The reason i waited to share our baby news during our one anniversary was
 because Baby Pancakes is such a celebration of love in our lives...
i had to share the news on one of the biggest days of our lives!  

I do want to share some details on Baby Pancakes.

The doctors said NOT to get pregnant within the first year after 
my Thyroid Surgery so that my thyroid levels could get back to normal 
but i guess GOD had other plans!

How Many Pregnacy Tests: 3 home tests and blood work

Reaction to Pregnancy: Shock and Amazingly Elated although the whole idea of pregnancy scared me and i am definitely a paranoid person...i have been doing well being positive and remembering that God is in contol over this precious baby growing inside of me!

How Far Along: 22 weeks and 4 days!


Total Weight Gain: Between fifteen and eighteen (it's all me and NOT Baby Pancakes!)

Size of Baby Pancakes: According to thebabycenter.com Baby Pancakes is the length of spaghetti squash --how awesome is that..he is almost one pound--WOOHOO!!!


Belly Button In or Out: In...but it looks like it wants to come out and play!


Stretch Marks: Not yet but i have been using cocoa butter before 
i found out i was having a baby and since so maybe that's helping!

Maternity Clothes: I've been trying to to fit into my own clothes 
but i've purchased a few maternity tops.

Gender: It’s a boyl!!! The first boy in Mr. Pancakes' family 
in almost twenty-years so we are pretty excited.

Names: Baby Pancakes of course/we have a few names in mind.

Movement: Team Pancakes has been moving up a storm...
he likes music and was moving to Adele today.
 He hiccuped last week and i thought he was suffering...it was scary!!

Funny Story: Baby Pancakes was apparently eating during the last ultrasound...it was too cute!

Sleep: I have been sleeping alright for a pregnant woman--
getting up three or twice during the night to use the bathroom...
that's the most disturbing part of my sleep
 but i am assuming that's getting me ready for waking up because of the baby.

What I miss: Working out to my full capacity. 
 I did run my half-marathon when i was like 14 weeks---
i ran and walked and it took me 3hours, 52 minutes...
one of the most challenging and best times of my life!


What I'm looking forward to: being 6 months pregnant and moving next week!

Cravings: I won't eat it unless i have a taste for it...
so my cravings varies day to day.  Today was popcorn!!

Symptoms: Overall i've been feeling really well.  
No morning sickness...it's been a smooth pregnancy.

Best Moment this week:  Of course our one year anniversary 
and sharing Team Pancakes with you, my blog friends!

Your baby bump is so cute! Congratulations.

I've been pretty paranoid about my pregnancy too, especially in the early weeks but as you say it's all up to God. I need to remember his promises; whatever happens he is in control and his plan is best!

How long has he been moving around for? It's such a lovely feeling isn't it? Has your husband felt it too?
