Old Wives Tales – Gender Predictions

Hello loves!

I didn’t do a 19 week pregnancy update because I haven’t had any changes. So I thought since in one week from today we will be finding out the sex of our little one, I would do a post about Old Wives Tales and what they predict our little one will be.

I created this picture and posted it on my Instagram so make sure you’re following me @myberriedtreasures

So by one point it says it will be a baby girl! I know there are more old wives tales then this but these are just the ones I chose as they had the most definitive answers.

Do you have any predictions? What do you think Baby Berrian will be? Stick around for next week to find out what the doc says!

Love from my heart to yours,
Katherine

18 Week Pregancy Update

Hello loves!

Not much has changed from last week so I decided since I didn’t include a picture in last week’s post I would just post a picture of my baby bump.

20140619-072821-26901343.jpg

I love love love my baby bump! It’s something I’ve longed for for a long time!

We find out the gender on July 1st so stayed tuned for that! Rocky and I are excited beyond belief. It’s all we talk about. These next few weeks can’t come soon enough!

Love from my heart to yours,

17 Week Pregnancy Update

Hello loves!

Holy belly! This was the week my belly popped! And I’m obsessed with it. I can’t stop touching it. I want to wear only dresses and shirts that make it pop out. I’m in love with my baby belly and the precious little one inside of it.

Also this week I haven’t had much trouble sleeping but I woke up one morning with my shoulder hurting like I had slept on it wrong and it didn’t go away for a couple days. And then I woke up another morning and it was back. I’m just hoping I’m somehow sleeping on it wrong and that it’s not injured. It’s my left shoulder and I have been trying to sleep on my left side more because I’ve heard it’s better for baby. Since my belly is getting bigger I thought it was a good time to start. Maybe that could be the cause. I just hope it goes away soon.

As far as stretch marks, I have a few. Right around my belly button. Honestly I’m not too worried about it. I did buy some coconut oil and I hope to get in a routine of moisturizing my belly.

I had a doctors appointment this week! I was so excited for it only because I knew I would be scheduling my 20 week ultrasound and gender reveal! Agh I’m so excited to finally have a specific date that I can look forward to! So my appointment is July 1st! Rocky and I are soo excited and I don’t know how I am going to make it through these next few weeks. I’m dying to know! Also at my appointment I got weighed and I weigh the same as I did at my last appointment so I am still down 7 pounds from my starting weight. The doctor didn’t mention anything about it so hopefully that’s okay since last time my doctor told me I needed to start gaining. But trust me I am fine with staying this weight. Even with this belly I keep getting told how skinny I look so that’s good right?!?

That’s it for this week! I will talk to you guys next week!!!

Love from my heart to yours,
Katherine

16 Week Pregnancy Update

Hello loves!

16 weeks! 4 months! I’m so excited! This pregnancy is going by so slow and so fast at the same time!

20140605-123110-45070599.jpg

The biggest thing I noticed this week was round ligament pain. Our 4 year old nephew is in town I have been running around with him all week and I think that caused most of it.

My second trimester energy has kicked in. I have been busy trying out new recipes for dinner. And the hubby definitely isn’t complaining about that! I hope I can keep it up.

Other than that I really don’t have much else to say about my 16th week. I will talk to you next week!

Love from my heart to yours,

15 Week Pregnancy Update

Hello loves!

I hope you all are enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend. Right now we visited Rocky’s family in Pensacola for the weekend.

20140528-142243-51763407.jpg

This week I have been waking up more and more in the middle of the night. Either to go to the bathroom or just for no reason at all. And for some reason I’ve been feeling like I’ve been getting more sleep than I actually am. I guess I’m getting ready for when baby is here.

And this week I was obsessed with Martinelli’s apple juice. It was all I wanted. It is so delicious and if you haven’t tried it, you need to!

Other than that, nothing really changed from last week. I will talk to you guys next week for week 16!

Love from my heart to yours,

Our Dinner Plate #5

Hello loves!

Tonight’s dinner is Crispy Cheddar Chicken with mac and cheese and oven roasted corn.

20140521-200424-72264941.jpg

This is the link for the recipe for the Crispy Cheddar Chicken. I’ve made it before and it always gets rave reviews.

The mac and cheese is Annie’s Rotini Pasta with Three Cheese Sauce. I haven’t made it before and I probably won’t make it again. It wasn’t very flavorful but I wanted to try something new. Next time I’ll stick to the normal.

For the corn, I just put some frozen corn on a cookie sheet, sprinkled some krazy salt and melted butter on top and then put it in the oven on 400 for about 10 minutes. It was good but I was heavy handed on the salt and it was way too salty. I recommend using less salt then you think you would need.

I hope you enjoyed this look into what we were having for dinner.

Love from my heart to yours,
Katherine

Pinterest Favorites: Maternity Photography

Hello loves!

I thought up a weekly blog idea where each Monday I show you some of my Pinterest finds. 

Each week will have a theme and this week is Maternity Photography. As I patiently await the arrival of my baby “bump”, I have been enviously looking at maternity photography and willing my belly to grow.

If you click the pictures it will take you to the websites that the pictures are from.

14 Week Pregnancy Update

Hello loves!

And hello second trimester! I’m so happy I’m here!

 

20140517-174121.jpg

 

This week has been kind of a rough one. I don’t think I can blame it on the pregnancy though. I’ve had some serious sinus headaches this week and although I know I can take Tylenol I would rather just tough it out unless it’s unbearable.

Other than that and falling asleep on my way home from work I haven’t any real symptoms. I have noticed my stomach has felt like it was tightening and now I can feel the tightness of it.

I got the cutest pair of baby leggings from zulily this week. Make sure you follow me on Instagram to see more baby finds! @myberriedtreasures

Hope you all have had a good week! I’ll talk to you next week for my 15 week update!

First Trimester: Weeks 1-13 Pregnancy Update

Hello my loves!

Today I wanted to start off with sharing my pregnancy experience thus far and then hopefully will continue on through the rest of my pregnancy with weekly updates.

20140512-071649.jpg

With this being my first child, I am in brand new territory and knowing that every woman and every pregnancy is different, I had no idea what to expect. I had visions of hovering over the toilet each morning as I emptied my stomach into it and throwing up at the smell of anything displeasing. Lucky for me, I experienced none of that. My smell was heightened but not to the point that it made me nauseous. Plus I have had a total of 3 mornings where I have gotten sick and all have been on empty stomachs so it was only the liquid I had just drank. I do consider myself lucky that I got through this without having to go through that.

So what symptoms have I experienced? None that I can really complain about. My boobs have increasingly become more and more tender. My back will ache when I lay or sit in certain positions. I have had a touch of round ligament pain. My appetite was pretty low for a while but I think as I near my second trimester it is slowly coming back.

And I am sure my lack of appetite has caused the seven pound deficit from my pre-pregnancy weight. While I know I could afford to lose the weight, my doctor hopes that by the next appointment I will have gained some of it back.

 

I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have. Leave them down below!

 

Love from my heart to yours,

Katherine

Happy Mother’s Day!

I would like to apologize for my absence. I had intended on keeping up with this blog but like all the other blogs I have started, I fell off the wagon. I really wish I could stay motivated for once. I hope that maybe I can get back on this wagon and stay on for a long ride now.

With that being said I have some exciting news to share with you!

 
20140511-073127.jpg

 

That’s right! My husband and I are expecting our first child in November of this year. I cannot describe to you how excited we both are. We both have wanted kids for as long as we have been together. It probably would have happened sooner but I thought we would enjoy sometime to ourselves before we became parents. We didn’t wait as long as I originally planned but I am not upset about that. I feel I am as ready as I could ever be to become a mother.

 

I felt it only fitting to share with you our wonderful news on Mother’s Day. All my life I have wanted to be a mother and now I am so happy that in a few short months I will be holding a sweet bundle of joy.

 

I also wanted to share with you how we told extended family and friends that we were expecting. Our anniversary was April 14th and I made a video to Rocky that revealed the news. I hope you enjoy.

 

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! Without you, we would be nothing!

 

Love from my heart to yours,

Katherine
