5 months today!
I have made it to a half way mark! So far our baby Ruiz is growing right on schedule! It’s definitely getting uncomfortable at night and it’s hard for me to be on my feet for a long period of time. But I am gaining weight about a a pound a week. I have never been this heavy so it takes some encouragement for me to accept the fact that it’s ok to be big and heavy….
anyways, for your eyes only….my belly growth.
@ 14 weeks (thanks to Miguel, my wonderful photographer)
I thought I was getting big then lol…now @20 weeks
Can you see the difference? Yep, I have said goodbye to my regular clothes and now I am in my maternity clothes. I have to admit, I love being able to eat when I want to all day long!!
First 20 weeks went by very fast. I am suer the next 20 weeks is going to fly by even quicker! Thanks to all the “moms” out there who have been telling to slow down, stop, sit and put my feet up! I feel so blessed to have so many of you who care about the well being of me and my baby. This baby is already so loved by so many people!
A couple of exciting things happening this summer. I am finding out our baby’s gender in 10 days, then I get to go register for my baby’s stuff. My best friend is coming to visit me in July and then Miguel’s brother, Daniel is coming in August. My baby shower will be in August (thanks to my wonderful friend from church :))
Before we know it, the baby is coming! Miguel and I are so excited to welcome our baby into this world…in 20 weeks!!
Have a great weekend!
Moving on to the 2nd Trimester!
We just came home from our 2 week vacation. What a refreshing time we had!! We had such a great time! We’ll be posting pics soon…
Ei has made it to the 2nd trimester! She is feeling much better now and starting to get used to “being pregnant”. She has gained some weight (or should we say…more than ever…ugh!) and her regular pants are starting to feel tight. It might be time for shopping! Our baby is doing well. We just had a check up with a doctor and everything seems to be moving along very well. Praise the Lord!
Our 13w5d baby :) Can you see the little fingers waving at you??
Next ultrasound will be in June. We will find out if it’s a boy or a girl. What is your guess??
Have a blessed day!
We have a cute bun in the oven!!
We would like to officially announce via the Internet… God has blessed us with a baby and Ei is 10 weeks pregnant!!! We have been praying and waiting for our little miracle for a while. We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement!!
Around 6 weeks, I started to feel nauseous and tired a lot (and hungry all the time!) I thought morning sickness would start in the morning, but for me it starts in the afternoon. Yikes!
Now we get to start showing off our little baby :) These pictures were taken at 9 weeks and 2days. At 9w2d, our baby was 24mm long and the heartbeat of 170 bpm. The baby should be a bit bigger by now. But even at 9 weeks, you can see the baby’s little head, hands and feet already!!
We will be updating periodically on our baby’s growth as well as our other exciting adventures that are coming up very soon :)
Holy week starts tomorrow on Palm Sunday. We are going to be quite busy with many church services, but we are praying that every person can prepare his/her heart to remember the suffering of our Savior for our sins and to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Have a blessed day!
