22 weeks

22 week bump!! 

We let Hubby's mom open our gender reveal envelope when we celebrated Christmas.  It's a BOY!! 

Cameron got his first haircut yesterday!  (And mommy got hers chopped off a few days ago!!)

Charley Harper Quilt

I finally finished a project!  I've been working on this quilt since July so it felt great to finally finish it.  I had to take a big break from it when my morning sickness was at its peak.  

I loved sewing with the Charley Harper fabrics.  The pattern is the Kitchen Window Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman, modified to be queen sized instead of throw sized.  I struggled deciding how to quilt this one.  I have never done anything other than a basic meander, so I really branched out and I did organic line quilting!  

I love how it turned out!  It was a hard one to give away!

Week 19

I made Hubby take a 19 week photo of me.  I'm a little late as I hit the 20 week mark on Monday, but hopefully I'll get that picture taken this weekend.  Here's a fun little comparison for you of my current 19 week belly and my 19 week belly with Cameron.

I didn't make a shirt to track my weeks for this poor little babe.  I'll have to figure out some kind of system so I can remember which week it was.  

I still wear my sea bands.  I'm worried to take them off because I don't want to be nauseous.  I'm starting to have hints of heartburn, too.  With Cameron I had to take heartburn medicine every day, so I hope I don't have to do that again.  I still have aversions to chicken, although I can eat soup with chicken if someone else makes it.  Eggs are hard for me to eat, too.  I mostly have a hard time with the way cooked eggs smell.  It's so weird.  I think I could eat a hardboiled egg without problems, but scrambled are a different story.  Cameron and I eat a lot of black bean quesadillas because salsa has been a constant good tasting thing for me.  As far as cravings go, they don't hit me very often.  Right now I can't stop thinking about apple crisp.  I even debated making a pan this afternoon, but I don't trust myself to save any for Hubby.  Fruit in general tastes really good to me, so I guess that's at least a healthy craving!     

My friend and I have decided to get more into our photography and do a 52 week challenge.  The only successful 52 week challenge I have ever completed was Cameron's!  That was hard and it was just a photo of a baby.  We are going to have themes to keep us motivated.  I'm excited to get started!

18 weeks

Just a quick bump shot.  I've been really bad at weekly photos this time around.  Maybe next week I'll wear real clothes.  ;) 

I've been starting to feel little flutters of baby movement!  I don't remember when I was first able to feel cameron moving around, but it was probably around the 18-19 week mark.  We have our ultrasound next week but still can't decide if we should find out the gender or wait until baby is born.  It's such a hard decision this time!!
