The Third Trimester

My Third Trimester was AMAZING! I had pretty good energy most of the time and other than heartburn at night, I felt pretty good! I have been able to stay active throughout my whole pregnancy which I think has helped with my energy and over all well being! We can't wait to meet our sweet little nugget!!

I'm so thankful I've been able to stay active throughout this pregnancy! I have felt so much better when I exercise and I truly believe it's helped me keep off the unnecessary weight gain!

Polo loves to lay his head on my belly. He knows something is going on!

A Letter to Our Baby Girl

Beautiful Baby Girl,

Happy birth month, sweetheart! Words cannot describe how excited I am to meet you. I cannot believe I have had you in my belly for 38 weeks and you are now considered "full term". I have absolutely LOVED being pregnant with you (even when I was sick as a dog for 16 weeks) and feeling your sweet little (and big) movements in my belly. This is selfish but in just a couple short weeks I will have to share you with the outside world. It will no longer just be you and me: me feeling your kicks and you hearing my heartbeat.  I know there are many people anxiously awaiting your arrival and I am so excited to introduce you to the world! I cannot wait to see what you look like and hear you cry for the first time. Daddy and I dream of what your personality will be like. Will you be easy going and laid back like daddy or will you be a little spitfire and always on the go like mommy? However God made you, you will be so perfect!  My heart might explode the first time I lay eyes on you.  I can't wait for you to meet your daddy and watch you all interact! You will absolutely adore him and he will adore you! He is the most loving, kind, hard working man and will do everything in his power to make his little girl happy! I cannot wait to see the bond that you two form and see you two together. You are so very loved and there are so many people anxiously awaiting your arrival. You will constantly be surrounded by love and support by your family. 
We cannot wait to meet you baby girl!!

The Second Trimester

This picture is a great way to describe the majority of my first trimester. Polo has been such  a great supporter during my pregnancy, it's like he knows something is going on! So happy for the much needed energy boost during the 2nd trimester! 

Ashley and I have known each other since I was born. Our dads grew up together! And now, our babies are due just two weeks apart! Such a special time!

At our 16 week appointment our doctor "predicted" that she was a girl but we didn't tell a SOUL.   Our Dr. wasn't 100% sure because she was upside down and super squirmy the whole time. We wanted to wait for the official confirmation at our 19 week ultrasound.

At 16.5 weeks we made a MAJOR move across the country from Tennessee to Arkansas 

at 17 weeks we took an all expenses paid Advocare trip for an exclusive training.  Looked down to see my sweet little bump!

Polo isn't too sure what to think about the baby clothes! 

"is this bed for me mom?"

At 21 weeks I went to Advocare Success School in Arlington, TX! The Forbes', some team members, and I were invited to the "exclusive" President's Party at the Fort Worth Zoo and it was so incredible!! 

Daddy first felt baby kick at 19 weeks but by 21 weeks he could feel her kick full force! 

Finally starting to see a more noticeable bump!

Maternity Photos 2014

My husband and I kept going back and forth on whether or not we wanted maternity photos taken. I am SO glad we decided to go ahead and have them done. We are so in love with these photos from Three Bee's Photography. We are so thankful that Amber was able to capture these beautiful, precious moments!
