For those of you who dont already know, Im pregnant! This may be old news but I dont always share the details. We had been trying to get pregnant for about 9 months...so frustrating. But with a little test of faith, it happened. I knew that was normal for most but I was still hoping for it more and more every month. We found out just a week before Christmas and waited almost a week to tell our families. That was soo hard and the longest week of all! Of coarse we couldnt keep our mouths shut and told some friends in the mean time.
Only 14 weeks in, we found out we are having a little boy! Go blue team! Secretly I was hoping for a little girl but I was actually very relieved. I had 2 older brothers myself and I would want my little girl to have an older brother too. This way, if one comes along later, that will happen. With nursery colors all picked out, and shower plans being made, now its just waiting time.
Im now 18 weeks along and there is soo much more waiting to be done! Im not even half way through yet but I must say, time does fly. It just seems like a long way away until August. I actually repeated weeks 12-14 because my due date was set back. I had a feeling about this anyways ( a mother always knows), but sure doesnt make the time go by faster.
We keep changing our minds on names..It feels like every week is different. But actually right now, we like Reid Riley Boyer. It has stuck the longest out of anything else. About 3 weeks, which is amazing! So it might be that! Daddy even started calling him by his name! He will be an amazing father. We are both so excited!
Thats all the update for now. All tests and ultrasounds have come back positive, and Im feeling great (now finally). knock on wood! Till next time

So I was doing pretty good and then Memorial weekend hit and I have no idea what ive eaten since. Im not doing so good now. This is probably what people feel like when their investigating the gospel...on the right track, feeling good, and then all of a sudden, its a little too hard at times, they loose track, and then getting back on board is even harder. Thats how I feel right now. Mexico is in about 5 days. Im going to keep working hard and hopfully feel a difference by the time I go..if not, oh well. Maybe i will try again when I get back. But not record it and keep track so tightly. On an ok note, I was able to record my weight as 133 to my health insurance instead of 136..woohoo

Today I ate 1,222 calories, burnt 765, making my balance at 1,543. YAY! a better day! I went for a long walk, up those hills, danced around the house while i cleaned. I always burn a bit more on launrdy day cux im carring all those loads of clothes up and downt he stairs. The only thing is, I didnt have much of a breakfast. An apple...thats it. BUT I went and got some prenatal vitamins and whey protien powder ( I carried my basket instead of pushing one at the store). Every little bit helps. So that should help my breakfasts be a little more complete, along with a yogart and my 5g sugar granola. Im feelin good!

Today I ate 1,155 calories, burnt 227, making my balance at 1,072. I remember my first few days feeling very hallow. I notice I dont feel that anymore. My body now feels normal eating so little. I say "little" but really its more like what I should be eating, just better and smaller portions. I ate a much better breakfast today; 1 egg inside 1/2 pita bread, and activia light yogart. It was a perfect breakfast. Also, usually I go way over on my sugars for the day, and today I was 11 grams under where I was supposed to be. Went for a quick walk with the dog...I feel like today was a good day. A day that I should model the rest of my days after.

Today I ate 1,370 calories, burnt 128, making my balance at 758. Even though my numbers are mostly ok, Im really not feeling like im doing any of this right. My breakfasts are almost nothing, I eat too much for dinner, and I dont excersize. Im not seeing a change. On some days I feel a change but I still havn't changed a bit based on the fit of my "goal jeans". They still fit just as tight. I'm not pregnant...as far as I know.
