20 weeks


Total Weight Gain: Not so sure but I'm sure it's not good! Everything has grown this week.

Maternity Clothes: YES!

Gender: It's a girl. I want another ultrasound just to confirm this though!

Movements: Yes, and I actually felt it with my hand yesterday!

Sleep: NOT GOOD! I've had lots of WEIRD dreams lately.

Cravings: They are different everyday. One thing I am really surprised I haven't craved consistently is ice cream. I wanted it everyday with Aiden- only once or twice this time.

Stretch Marks: I'm hoping it's my imagination but I do see them. I didn't notice them with Aiden because I didn't really gain until the last few months.

Belly Button: My belly button never stuck out with Aiden so unless that changes I'm taking this off the weekly post.

Best Moment: Feeling her kick my hand and getting her first outfit I bought/ordered in the mail.

Cars 2 was a disappointment for us all. Unfortunately to me it was not near as good as Cars. If Aiden had watched it would have been way over his head. However 20 minutes into the movie he was so ready to go he couldn't stand it. An hour into the movie he was switching seats, ready to go to Chick Fil A, taking his shoes off, talking loud, begging to play games on my phone, having to go potty (100 times it felt like), sleepy, and anything else you can think a 3 year old would say to have a change of scenery. He is just like his momma and sitting still is not our thing. Lesson learned!

I'm pretty pumped that we are taken Aiden to see Cars 2 tonight. This will be his first time to go to the movie theater. Let's just hope he can sit through a 2 hour movie since he can't sit for 5 minutes anywhere.

19 weeks

19 Week Update
Nothing, except Best Moment, has changed this week from 18 weeks so no need to post all the categories.

Best Moment: Shopping for girls clothes (I haven't bought much, I promise), picking out her bedding (I'm having someone make part of it and I'm making the rest- I LOVE IT), getting her crib together, hearing Aiden talk about his sister he loves so much, and of course feeling her moveMy boys putting her crib together. We have A LOT to clean out of this room before it's any where close to ready. It's now the home of my maternity clothes (which is 5 huge tubes thanks to all my sweet friends and family that let me borrow clothes), garage sale items, eliptical machine, the remainder of Aiden's clothes, and other junk! :)

IT'S A.......

Here are some pictures of my home before the party. Sorry the first one is so dark.
I didn't want guest to have to wear a color even though some did anyway. So I just had them wear these clips.



I can't believe I captured my mom's excitement so well!! As you can tell she wants another grand-daughter!

IT'S A GIRL!!!As you can tell from this picture, Aiden was excited- much to my surprise!

Excited/Nervous wrapped into one!

I'm so exciting and nervous. In 10 minutes, I will be leaving work and heading to the doctor (posting was my way of passing that time). I will post pictures of the party tonight. When I couldn't sleep last night I thought about my blog and how the name of my blog will be changing if we have a girl. So my blog name could possibility change to Bullfrogs and Butterflies, instead of Butterfly. Which by the way in case you ever wondered the name came because Bullfrogs and Butterflies was one of my most favorite songs as a child, I remember dancing around singing that song, if you haven't heard it- look it up! :)

Boy or Girl??

Because everything with this baby was so hush hush at the beginning due to the high risk we didn't really get to do anything exciting for an annoucement. I told my husband from the very beginning if everything is ok I want to do a gender reveal party. I have seen so many people do them and I love any reason to have a party so next Thursday thats exactly what we will do. We decided to make the announcement to our families all together. Stay tuned next week for more party decor pictures. I only went "a little" overboard!! :)

16, well almost 17, weeks with Baby 2 16 weeks with Aiden

Please excuse the huge arm in my picture. I hope my arms not really that big, that stance did me no justice! :)

Total Weight Gain: Again I have no idea, I dont weigh myself

Gender: Find out in one week (pray baby cooperates)

Movements: still don't think I have felt anything (very nervous)

Sleep: NOT GOOD still, but Tylenol PM has helped.

Cravings: Sweet Tea, I am not someone that drinks my calories so this is a big deal for me.

Stretch Mark/Belly Button: same

Best Moment this week/weeks: Getting Aiden moved into his new room so the baby can have Aiden's room (which is closer to ours).
