18 Weeks

Yes... I know I'm a few days behind... but then again I know at least one of my readers was in the hospital because she just had a baby and probably hasn't had time to get on here anyway.. yay and Congrats Krista! She is so beautiful! And to those other 4 (that may be a stretch) readers I apologize if you were anxiously awaiting an update on my pregnancy, though I highly doubt you were :).

There really wasn't anything too exciting going on, I was hungry a lot last week, it came to a screeching halt on Saturday evening when I felt like my stomach was about to explode from eating too much. I felt so bad that I actually called Jeremy and asked him to come home early from Carrabba's because I didn't want to be alone. But then I was fine on Sunday and able to enjoy my dad's spectacularly amazing Fried Rice (I've tried to duplicate it, but even my husband enjoys my dad's more).

3 more days until we find out the gender of Baby Montz. I'm still waiting for that first kick, punch, or somersault which I possibly could have felt already and I'm just not aware of it. Oh well! I'm sure I'll get my confirmation that he or she is moving around when we get to see him or her again on Thursday!

17 Weeks

I often times feel like I have skipped a couple weeks of pregnancy... Probably because I want to be farther along than I actually am! Yes i know people say it goes by so quickly and I should enjoy, well I am not a patient person... When I know something is happening in the future it's all I can think about! But nevertheless I am at 17 weeks...

I had a great conversation this week with a friend who is pregnant, we were talking about the insecurities of pregnancy that people really just don't tell you about. For example, my friend is still in her first trimester which is the part where you worry about miscarriages and you pay careful attention to every new feeling in belly area, every movement can make your mind wonder what's happening down there and there is the waiting for that first appointment to see your baby and hear the heartbeat! For me I am at the point where I know the first movement is coming so I am anticipating it and probably thinking too much about it! Then when I feel that first movement I fear that I will be trying to feel every single movement after that and stressing myself out when I don't feel it! I am also at the point of starting to really show, but the insecurity there is that people that don't know I'm pregnant may just thing I'm overweight!! I feel that way sometimes too! I know i need to enjoy these changes because this should be a very enjoyable part of life, I just didn't expect to feel this way!

Our next appoint is 12 days away and we get to start calling baby Montz him or her!! I'm so excited to see my baby again and hear the heart beat... It just calms me down!

Through all the insecurities though I have to remember that God is charge, He knows every detail about this little baby and he is watching over it!!

16 weeks...

I'm not good at blogging... I've tried many times and failed many times... so I'm not sure if this will stick, but let's give it a whirl!!

I am now 16 weeks preggo!! 4 months down, it's crazy to think! There are still many days when I do not 'feel' pregnant, I wish I could hear the heart beat every week! My regular pants are definitely in their last stages, I may be able to get another week or so out of them... mom and I are going outlet shopping on the 26th, but I may have to figure out something before then!

Only 20 more days until we find out the gender of baby Montz!! We do already have names picked out... if it's a boy his name will be Vincent Edmond. Jeremy has said ever since we got married that he likes names that start with 'V' and Vincent was the only boys name that I liked so that's where Vincent came from and Edmond was my grandfathers name. He passed away in 2005 a month before my college graduation. We want his name to live on through our little one if the Lord blesses us with a boy!
If it's a girl, right now we are settled on the name Makayla Paige. No really rhyme or reason behind that one! Just something we both liked... although it took a few days for Jeremy to get on board with the name Paige! The girls name has actually changed about 3 times... so we'll see what happens!

Tomorrow Jeremy and I are going to our first board gaming convention called Indycon. It's just a local one, but we are both excited to go play games with friends all day!

That's all I've got for now... like I said, we'll see how this goes for the next 5 months!
