        AH 11 weeks and 3 days until I will be holding a baby...not just any baby MY baby!!  AHHHH SO it really it hit me a few days ago how much life change I have had in the past year!  Well maybe the past 2 years!  Met my wonderful husband in May 2010, married him May 2011, and having a baby in  MAY 2012!!!  Is it just me or do me and Zach LOVE MAY!!! Of course there are a WHOLE lot of things in between that have happened that just make my life so wonderful and am so thankful for everything in it!
         So new things that are happening this week as far as pregnancy would my ever expanding belly, I swear that thing grows by the minute!  I feel the baby just squirming and moving all over the place and he just loves to remind me that he is in there!  One complaint of the week is I have started swelling just a little bit,  well mainly just my fingers, my wedding band is tight so I started wearing it around my neck and keep my engagement ring on!  It makes me sad cause I'm guzzling water to try to prevent the swelling cause I don't want to not be able to wear my rings!  So thats all in the pregnant world!  
        This weekend was pretty uneventful...Friday night we went to Olive Garden with Amanda and that was so fun cause she is so sweet and its just always night to go to dinner with friends!  Saturday Zach worked a side job so I finished up Baylors room as far as getting the crib skirt on the bed and pulled things that I need to wash for him and started freaking out on what to put in a bag for the hospital!  Sunday was just low key since I had to work 1 to 6! It was just a nice low key weekend!  :)  I know I am not very interesting, but hey this blog helps me just vent and talk out how I have been feeling!

A day in the life....of a pregnant woman!

So this is going to be a blog about pregnancy woes!  If you are pregnant or have ever been pregnant you have to admit it would be pretty easy to complain all day every day about each new pregnancy pain you have.... I feel like somedays all I want to do is complain about every weird new thing happening to me!  I have to admit I am pretty ready to have sweet Baylor in my arms and not in my tummy!  I love that he is growing, but I really can't like my growing belly that has recently developed a couple of stretch marks :(.  I have to admit before I got pregnant I had some self image issues and now being pregnant and not being able to stop gaining weight makes me feel just yucky!  I guess thats just another thing no one really tells you about before you become pregnant, yeah you know you are going to gain weight, but you don't really know what type of pregnancy weight you are going to gain...And then there are the hormones...I fully understand the comment in Knocked Up when he is going off on her in the doctors office and says "F-you hormones!"  Somedays I want to say that to myself because what the heck is going on with all these crazy emotions!!  One minute you are sooo happy and the next thing you know you are bawling your eyes out because your husband doesn't understand what you are going through and how your body feels! (Sorry Zach)  Husbands really should get some kind of award for putting up with the craziness!  I can't even count how many times I have just started randomly crying for sadness, but I will get so mad and maybe throw a box of mac and cheese at my husband for slapping my butt one too many times and then cry cause I feel so bad that I threw something and got mad!  I'm telling you I feel crazy sometimes!  Wow I really am just a complaining!  :)  I have to say though for the most part this pregnancy has been very tolerable compared to some people I know...  I do have to say I really do try most days not to complain and just bite my tongue and tolerate it because I know when I see my sweet son I will know it was all worth it!  I am very blessed to have the supportive husband that I do have and I just need to remember that!   
  I did have my first baby shower this weekend and wow it was soo fun!  I got so many wonderful things and loved seeing so many of my wonderful friends and family!!  I really appreciate every gift even if I don't exactly know how to use everything I got :)  I have some pictures to post from it!

My mom made that amazing baby bag!  She is awesome!

Well I think I have complained enough for today I promise I am trying to update this thing more since I dont see everyone as much!  Love all yall!

Time is flying...

I am absolutely the worst at remembering to blog!  Wow time is flying by so fast I feel like I just did announce I was having a baby, and now I am a little over 13 weeks away from delivery!  EEEK! Don't get me wrong I can't wait to hold Baylor in my arms, but  I'm not going to lie I am super nervous about labor and delivery, if you know me you know I HATE pain... I mean I know no one likes pain, but my pain tolerence is, well I don't really have one!  There are just sooo many things to worry about when becoming a new parent!  I feel like I will be a good mom, but I am still worried about the every day life of taking care of this little creature that totally relys on me! Will I remember to change his diaper? feed him on time?  will he like me? will I be able to breast feed?  will he latch on right? am I gonna freak out every time he poops? and what the heck am I suppose to do with that little pee pee?? These are just the worries that go through my head all the time!  Other than that I am excited to be a mom and I am just praying I will do a good job, and raise him to be a mighty man of God!  I really started thinking about that the other do I know my son will love God and accepting Him to be his Saviour?  I pray I teach him and be the best example for him and show him the love of God through me and Zach.  WOW I could literally go on and on and on about that....
   Other things that have been going on is I celebrated my 26th birthday on Saturday which is so crazy to me cause sometimes I swear I still feel like Im only 18!  I really do feel like that past couple of years have just slipped through my fingers!  Hmmm What else is going on in The Sapp House??? Oh Baylor's baby bed was delivered and Zach put it together on Sunday!  It turned out sooo cute... Not going to lie we ordered it online and I was super nervous about the color cause we ordered it in Cherry...I was sooo scared it was going to come in light wood and heavy undertones of cherry were it would look too red, but thankfully it is dard with just a hint of red undertones.!!  I know I am crazy!  Well I am all out of stuff and I really want to try to update this thing more!!  have a good week everyone!
