So come visit us there!

Week 20--HALF WAY THERE!!!

I have 136 days left!

Baby girl is the size of a banana!
How far along?  20 Weeks
Total weight gain? About 11 pounds (I don't have a scale, so I'm actually not
positive on this.)
Maternity clothes? I haven't purchased any, but I love the ones that were loaned to me. So comfy!
Stretch Marks? No.
Best moment this week? Finding our apartment that we'll be living in when the baby comes!
Miss anything? I miss not being able to eat a lot in one sitting. I have to eat lots of tiny meals.
Movement? Yes! So much kicking and moving! I love it! I can't wait
for Chris to be able to feel it.
Food Cravings: I'm starting to want sweets more now, namely zebra cakes. But I still
want anything spicy. Buffalo wings, spicy chicken nuggets, etc.
Anything making you sick or queasy? Not really.
Worst symptom: Indigestion! It sucks so bad.
Labor signs: Not yet.
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time? "Moody." says my husband.
Looking forward to: Registering for baby stuff.

Little girl is the size of a banana this week and about 10.5 oz! She is just growing and growing! I have loved feeling her move more and more. I can't even describe the feeling. It's almost like little bubbles but I can totally tell that it's baby and not normal tummy bubbles.

We toured the birthing center today and I love it! The birthing suite is so cozy. It looks like a home and not like a hospital at all. The bed is big enough for mommy, daddy and baby to snuggle and they never take baby away from you.

My biggest concern was complications that would cause me to be transfered to the hospital in an emergency situation. They said that there are two main reasons that women transfer to the hospital, 1) They want an epidural 2) They are getting too tired pushing and won't progress. Both of these situation aren't emergency and there is no rush to get to the hospital. The midwife assured me that two of the biggest complications (mom hemorrhaging or baby not breathing) they have the equipment to take care of it at the birthing center.

We've been praying a lot about it and I feel really good about our decision to birth there. Our next step is to find out whether our insurance will cover any of it. (If not, it's pretty inexpensive).

I've been researching doulas  and trying to decide whether I want one or not. So I'll keep you updated on that one.

The next step in baby preparations is registering for baby gifts. I'm so excited to be a mom!!!

Week 19

Courtesy Kensie M Photography

How far along?  19 Weeks
Total weight gain? About 11 pounds
Maternity clothes? In the picture I'm wearing maternity jeans that my Sister-in-law loaned me. I haven't bought any yet though.
Stretch Marks? No.
Best moment this week? My family oohing and ahhing over my teeny baby bump.
Miss anything? I miss not feeling so big when I try on clothes.
Movement? Yes! I am positive that I have felt some sort of flutterings. 
Food Cravings: Still hot wings. Send some my way!
Anything making you sick or queasy? Mostly just oranges.
Worst symptom: My back has been especially sore lately and I don't
love the round ligament pains.
Labor signs: Still a ways off.
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time? "Mostly happy," says my husband.
Looking forward to: Touring BellaNatal birthing center to see if it's the right place for us!

This was by far my most favorite week of being pregnant (besides the day we found out the gender)! Christopher and I were in Oklahoma all week visiting family and it was so fun to see everyone. It was the perfect trip right after we got back from Hawaii. The newest addition to our family, my niece Grace Anna, was getting blessed. I loved getting to play with her and imagine playing with our own baby girl.

I also got my first outfits for baby girl!

The first is from my sister, Jessica and the other two were in baby girl's easter basket from my sister-in-law, Kensie.

Then Kensie gave me a ton of maternity clothes that I am so excited to wear. I just need to be a little bigger and I'll basically have a brand new wardrobe. I'm so grateful for her! I probably won't have to buy any new clothes. Now whether I buy any or not is another story.

Kensie was also kind enough to take a few maternity photos for me since she's an awesome photographer, even though my baby bump isn't so big yet. You can see her incredible newborn and senior photography here.

We're headed back to Utah tomorrow and I'm so excited to find where we'll be living for the next while.

Week 18

How far along?  18 Weeks
Total weight gain? About 8 pounds
Maternity clothes? Nope.
Stretch Marks? No.
Best moment this week? Finding out the gender and getting to see cute
pictures on the ultra sound.
Miss anything? You know, not really.
Movement? Yes! I am positive that I have felt some sort of flutterings. 
Food Cravings: Spicy buffalo wings. I want them 24 hours a day,
for any meal of the day. Always.
Anything making you sick or queasy? Mostly just oranges.
Worst symptom: The awkwardness of not being able to lay on my belly.
Labor signs: Still a ways off.
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time? "More so happy probably," says my husband.
Looking forward to: Seeing my family and my cute new niece soon.

Sorry, this post is a little belated. It's been a hectic week. We moved from Hawaii on Monday night, got to Utah Tuesday morning and then left for Oklahoma this morning (Wednesday). This chilly weather is not being nice with my Hawaii wardrobe and Hawaiian adjusted temperatures.

On a side note, I have been feeling especially fat lately and that I just look large and not pregnant at all. But today a man in the airport congratulated me on my pregnancy! I look pregnant for legit!! I feel much better about life now.

My belly appears to have popped out just in time for our last Sunday at church before we moved. Everyone was coming up and congratulating me as they said goodbye. 

I still haven't bought any baby clothes since finding out that we're having a little baby girl. (With all the travelling and tight packing and whatnot). But I'm really excited to do so. I don't want to buy a ton of stuff until after our baby shower (when/if we have one) but I think it's a right of passage and makes the whole baby thing seem that much more real. As if all the vomiting, indigestion, food aversion and gaining weight weren't real enough. 

I guess it makes more sense to buy more baby stuff when we actually have an apartment. We're sort of homeless right now. But all in good time. I've got family to visit!

It's a....

We had our ultra sound early this morning and had the technician seal the gender in an envelope. It was SO hard not to look. The ultra sound was incredible! Our sweet baby actually looks like a baby now and not a blob. We saw it's little fist and little toes. I'm so grateful for technology that we could check for any problems and have some cute pictures of our little growing baby.

This evening, Chris' cousin and his photographer wife took our gender envelope and bought balloons for our awesome gender reveal photo shoot.

Since most of you have already scrolled down to the pictures, I'll just stop writing now and get to the good stuff.

and then I started crying...big alligator tears

I knew it was a girl! Chris was convinced it was a boy but he's still happy to have a little princess.

I have to give a huge thank you and shout out to our amazing photographer, Amanda from Campbell Photography (visit her website here). She did such a fantastic job. We're so thankful that she could be there to capture this special moment for us.

Alright humans, the gender knowledge is fast approaching which means if you haven't already voted on what the gender will it now!!! (Left side of the page at the top.) If you want me to know your vote so you can do a victory dance when you're right, gimme some comment love and let me know what you think it will be.

Little babylang is 6 inches this week, about the length of a grapefruit, and weighs about 5 oz. I'm so excited to see my little baby on the ultra sound again. If my research serves me right, it will actually look like a baby now (but the blob was cute).

So stay tuned because in just a few days I'll post an exciting gender reveal!

BONUS!!! This is what happens when my husband takes pictures and I'm not ready for them...

Pregnancy Yoga

Photo courtesy North End Yoga
I've never really had a good body image. My best friends during those awkward stages of puberty and unfortunate weight gain were wonderfully, beautifully, jealousy-inducingly thin (you know who you are). So as vain as it is for me to admit this, one of my biggest concerns with getting pregnant has been the impending weight gain and subsequent weight loss.

Now I realize that I will gain weight. And by weight I mean there is another human inside me gaining it's own weight and becoming more humanly everyday. I have no problem with that. The fear and anxiety comes in gaining too much weight and not being able to lose it and forever being the person who just never went back to her normal self after pregnancy.

In order to overcome this, I am trying to make a strong effort to exercise (safely and moderately) and now that my morning sickness is basically gone (Hallelujah!) I am trying to do a little exercise. This usually consists of short walks/jogs through our neighborhood with my husband. I like to do 5 minutes walking, 5 minutes jogging, 5 walk, and 5 jog. It's short and I take the jog at a mind numbingly slow pace but it gets my blood flowing and I feel good about it. I find that after spending a month and half almost entirely in bed, I'm a little out of shape. The key to this pregnancy exercise stuff is to never work so hard that you can't carry on a conversation while exercising.

SO today we just took a 20 minute walk and I thought I'd try out some pregnancy yoga. I have the most amazing pregnancy app EVER called Pregnancy Companion. I paid to get the full version and it's got a ton of great features like a weight tracker, a way to make sure you're getting the right number of calories, a forum to ask doctors questions, a way to look and keep track of your favorite names, your status in pregnancy, a way to keep track of contractions (when that time comes) and a wellness section that shows pregnancy yoga as shown in the photo below.

So if you are in the market for a GREAT pregnancy app, I highly recommend this one. Anyway, these are the pregnancy yoga poses that I tried out today. It doesn't tell you how long to hold the poses which is kind of nice because I can just hold it however long feels good. I've done a little yoga before, so thankfully I already knew how these poses were supposed to work since there was no video to follow or anything. And I was able to choose my own music.

Some of the poses were a little more difficult than I remember, what with the being out of shape and all. But I feel really good. And it feels so good to be exercising again. My body is just so happy. I'm going to try really hard to keep up with this throughout my pregnancy and hopefully it will help me to A. not gain too much weight, B. get back into exercise easily after I have the baby, and C. make it through labor and delivery a little easier.

But in case you're into following a video with an instructor, just go ahead and search pregnancy yoga on youtube. There will be so many results that you won't know what to do with yourself. I'll try some of those out at some point.

So I don't feel anything yet but we heard the kicking at the Dr. appt today!! She used one of those machines that they use for the heartbeat. But all we heard was a 'thump' every time it kicked. And boy was it kicking!

 Omg it was the coolest thing. The baby was like training for the World Cup or martial arts or something! Ahh! I can't even handle how excited I am to feel it move. THERE'S A BABY IN MY BELLY!!

And more excitement...we get to find out the gender in 2 weeks!!! BAHH!!!

Week 15

On our hike at the Pali Lookout

How far along? 15 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: About 4 pounds
Maternity clothes? Not yet!
Stretch marks? Nope.
Best moment this week: We'll talk to the doctor tomorrow about 
when we can see the gender!
Miss anything: Going an hour without having to pee.
Movement: Not that I can feel.
Food cravings: I don't know that I'm really craving anything, but I 
want cheese a lot (pretty normal)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Anything that looks dirty
Worst symptom: Frequent urination
Have you started to show yet: Just a little.

  Gender: I don't know yet.
Labor Signs: Thankfully no.
  Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I'm pretty moody.
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender.

People keep commenting on how small I look which makes me sad because I want to start looking pregnant and not like I really like cake (which I do but people shouldn't be able to tell that easily).

Little baby is growing and growing though. It is the size of an apple, about 4 inches and 2.5 ounces. It can sense light (even though it's little eyelids are fused shut) and it's growing little tastebuds.

According to my pregnancy app I might start to feel movement within the next week!!! So excited to meet my little human!

Week 14

There's a little bump!!

How far along? 14 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: About 4 pounds

Maternity clothes? Not yet!
Stretch marks? Thankfully no.
Best moment this week: Baby is coming with us on our very belated honeymoon!
Miss anything: At this point I miss my appetite.
Movement: Not that I can feel.
Food cravings: Pizza!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Oranges, also the fridge...
Worst symptom: Peeing every 5 minutes or so is getting a little old.
Have you started to show yet: Just a little.

  Gender: I don't know yet!
Labor Signs: Thankfully no.

  Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: A mix. (See below).
Looking forward to: Actually looking pregnant!

That's a pic of me at work when I was feeling extra huge (so please excuse the 
traffic cone orange shirt). BabyLang is the size of a large lemon this week, head 
to bottom it's 3 and a half inches! It's getting all kinds of facial developments: it 
can squint, frown, and grimace and may be sucking it's thumb. (So cute!)

In other news, jeans are no longer comfortable at all. I can still button the button,
 but I hate wearing anything so restricting. I've done the "rubberband in the button 
hole" thing but I'm not quite big enough for that, so basically if I wear jeans, they're
 unbuttoned and I wear a long shirt so (hopefully) no one can tell.

Also I basically live in the bathroom which sucks. My daily exercise is walking 
back and forth to the bathroom approximately 85 times a day.
I still get queasy but I haven't thrown up in about a week!! (That's a lie, I threw 
up yesterday. But other than that it was like a week which was HUGE!) 

As far as mood goes, Chris says that he can't wait for the baby to come so 
'nice Jocelyn' can come back. I sort of hate people a little right now. But I can
 be happy too (*Sheepish grin).

I'm in my second trimester so according to all the pregnancy literature I've
 seen, I should start feeling awesome any second now...

Now I need to go pack because Chris and I are FINALLY going on our 
honeymoon. (After 2 years and  10 months of marriage, it's about time!) 
I guess living in Hawaii just gave us the perfect opportunity.

Christmas Baby Surprise!

Chris and I told our parents on Christmas about our big, exciting news. You can read the story here.

Well I finally edited the videos of them opening their special gift so you can take a look. You'll have to excuse the poor video quality. We had siblings record them (on phones I think) and so the files aren't great. But you'll get the drift.

On an unrelated note, I'll be into my second trimester on Wednesday and I'm starting to feel loads better! I even went for a jog/walk this morning. And also I'm at that weird pregnancy stage where my belly is poking out just enough that I look fat and not actually pregnant.

Hopefully that won't last long.

Stay tuned for more pregnancy updates and baby bump pictures!!!

A rose by any other name...

When I was little, I got anxiety over naming my Barbies and baby dolls. Naming an actual human being that you can't change the name of when you get tired of it is WAY harder.

The thing that makes it easier is that I already know what I want the name to be if it's a girl. It's a family name, and a name I decided on when I was like 16 years old. I had a list of boy's names but suddenly when I pictured calling my child that, I didn't like them anymore.

Names on my boy list (none of which I think I like anymore):

  • Ryder
  • Desmond
  • Jude 
  • Titus
  • Declan
  • Theodore
  • Nolan
  • Chandler
  • Donovan
So instead of continually googling 'boy names' I went to the library and got the most recent baby name book I could find:

(Circa 2006)

So far it still hasn't helped me find more names that I like, but it has some rather amusing lists that I thought you might enjoy.

For instance, if I wanted my future daughter or son to be a fashionista, I might choose from the " Future Fashionistas" list which has names like:

  • Ant (B)
  • Barkan (B)
  • Blevin (B)
  • Calum (B)
  • Kenji (B)
  • Anoushka (G)
  • Chiara (G)
  • Elkie (G)
  • Joonypur (G)
  • Tirsa (G)
Or maybe I want my child to be a vegetarian. Well wouldn't you know, there's a list for that too:
  • A'Dhron (B)
  • Bonita (G)
  • Biondi (B)
  • Detra (G)
  • Kemper (B)
  • Fara Lynn (G)
The book is complete with other lists such as
  • Future Models
  • Future Doctors
  • Future Republicans
  • High Spirited Kids
  • Bad-to-the Bone, Death Row Names (obviously choosing from this one, the first name is Adolph.)
  • Scary Creepy Names
  • Names that make kids feel weird (why???)
Anyway, I've obviously got a bit more research to do. The good news is that I have roughly 6 more months in which to do it.

Welcome! (FAQs)

Well now that the cat's out of the bag, I guess I can welcome the world (i.e. Facebook community) to my baby blog!!!

If you haven't seen the announcement video yet, watch and enjoy!
Now, so that I can answer these questions once here are some frequently asked questions when people have found out that we're pregnant!!

When are you due?
August 22

When are you moving from Hawaii?
Chris and I are planning to move back to Provo, Utah sometime in late March/early April. We haven't set a specific date yet.

Are you going to find out the gender?
Absolutely! I think we will find out when we get back to Utah so that we have an excuse to throw a party with all our friends! Oh also, make sure you vote on the left sidebar for what you think the gender will be.

How far along are you?
I will be 13 weeks on Wednesday, which means I'm almost done with my first trimester and hopefully almost done with morning sickness.

Have you thought of any baby names yet??
Why yes, yes we have. In fact watch out for the next blog post which will be all about our baby name adventures.

Have you been sick?
Why yes, yes I have. Take a little look see at some of my previous blog posts (like this one or this one) and you can get detailed descriptions of just how sick I have been.

Have you had any ultra sounds?
Yep! Check here for ultra sound 1 and a picture and here for the deets on ultra sound 2.

When did you find out?
We found out on the last day of my internship in December. You can read all about it here.

Are you showing yet?
No, I wish that I was, but I'm not. But you better believe that as soon as I do I will post pictures weekly.

Will you still update your other blog?
Yes I will. I'll reserve this blog for baby updates and that one for everything else. In fact, there will be a link on that blog that will take you directly to this one. Go and see for yourself. Go to and on the left side where all the other pages are, it says baby at the bottom. It will take you right back here.

If you have any other questions, read around my other posts and feel free to ask me anything! Chris and I are absolutely ecstatic and we can't wait to meet our little baby! We're so excited to be parents!!

Thank you!

I get bored pretty easily and I love doing something with my hands. Since I've been in bed so much lately, I've been pretty bored. So to help with this boredom I made a little card for Chris (in bed of course).

He liked it.

Fighting food

I can't believe how much my outlook on food has changed since becoming great with child. Eating has become the biggest ordeal.

What will I eat? What can I eat? What sounds good? What have I not thrown up recently? (Something about seeing food come back up makes it really difficult to swallow that same food down later. I.e. yogurt, tomato soup, babybell cheese, Taco Bell, mashed potatoes.)

Before getting pregnant I was always struggling with dieting. Not any no carb thing or really specific plan. I was just working really hard to eat the right amount of the right foods and count my calories to ensure I wasn't eating too much. However, my 'diet' often diminished into "I'm watching TV and I'm bored I'm going to get a snack...and another snack....and another snack" until all of a sudden I've eaten so much food that I'm incredibly full and don't even want to figure out how many calories that was.

Now it's more like:
Chris- what do you want to eat?
Jocelyn- I don't know...
Chris- do you want A, B, or C?
Jocelyn- no. None of that sounds good.
Chris- how about you try and eat some D.
Jocelyn- ok, I guess I can try that

Then I get whatever food D is and I stare at it. I move it around with my fork. I take a tiny nibble. I gag. And then I tell Chris I'm done and feel miserable.

Eating is such a chore. I don't enjoy any aspect of it. I wish I could just get all my nutrients through some sort of feeding tube inserted directly into my stomach so I don't actually have to eat. That would be nice.

Maybe by the time I get to month four I'll actually want to eat. But the way things are going I won't have to worry about gaining too much extra weight.

What have your food experiences been like in pregnancy?

It's ALIVE!!!

We had another doctor's appointment yesterday. Can I just say how much I hate getting up on those little beds and trying not to rip the paper? I hate it a lot. Chris made fun of me cause I sort of hopped onto the bed so I wouldn't slide the paper up. I don't know. Just agitating.

In other news, we got to hear the heartbeat! It was difficult to make out at first, but once I heard it in the background I couldn't help but start beaming. That's my little baby in there with the most beautiful rhythmic heartbeat I've ever heard. I wish I had a recording of it that I could listen to all the time. I've never heard such a pleasing sound. That little thump -thump- thump, thump- thump- thump... there's really a little baby in there.

I have to be honest, despite all my MANY pregnancy symptoms, sometimes I forget that I'm growing a child. It certainly explains why I'm so tired all the time, but usually I just feel sick. I haven't been able to successfully associate the two things in my brain. Maybe it's because I don't want to associate my precious baby with such a wretched feeling.

Speaking of pregnancy symptoms, I'm not nauseous all the time anymore! YAY! However, I do throw up a whole lot more. In fact I lost two pounds since my last doctor visit. The doctor didn't seem concerned but the only thing she seems concerned about is me going to a genetics testing information meeting. I've done some research and already decided that I don't want to get genetics testing. But she's pushing this meeting on me like my baby's life depends on it. I wonder if she gets some kind of bonus for each patient she sends. I really don't like my doctor. I'm looking forward to moving to Utah and finding a midwife.

Unfortunately the doctor pushed my due date back from August 19 to August 22. The closer this gets to the start of Fall semester, the more worried I get. The good news is that I get to spend the end of my pregnancy relaxing and eating bon bons (if I so desire) out of school. The bad news is that school starts like a week after the baby will be born. I wonder if my teachers will help me work out some kind of maternity leave. I mean this is BYU after all, girls are having babies left and right. I'm sure it will all work out.

Now I'm going to relax, read my baby name book, and replay that little thump-thump-thump over and over again in my head.

Seeing spots

Had a little bit of a scare last week.

On Thursday, late afternoon, I noticed some spotting. To any normal not pregnant woman this means that time of the month is coming to an end, usually a good sign. To a pregnant person, it could be nothing, or it could also be:

  • Early signs of a miscarriage
  • An ectopic pregnancy- when the embryo implants outside of the uterus
  • And infection
  • Placenta Previa- a condition where the placenta grows too close to the cervix
Needless to say, I was worried. And with all the research I did, the first thing recommended on each website was to contact your doctor. Well by that point on Thursday the office was already closed, so one agonizingly worriful night later, I got a hold of a nurse who sent me to get another ultra sound. 

Well no surprise, it really was nothing and I'm growing a healthy little human in my belly. In fact, that human has grown so much in two weeks that we could easily see it on the ultra sound machine through my belly (no probing necessary).

It's little heart was just beating away and it has little buds where it's starting to grow arms and legs. Such a clever little baby growing arms and legs all on its own (can you do that?).

In other news, I have been in this bed for so long that I am finally sick of staring at these four walls all day. Yesterday was probably my worst morning sickness day yet and hopefully it will start to get better from here (oh please oh please oh please).

Oh and get this, I totally have a super power! Smell! No really, it's totally legit. All super powers are, are heightened senses right? Seeing through walls, jumping super high, uhh...flying...those are all senses right? Anyway, I can smell anything and everything. What the neighbors are making for dinner, how recently a dish has been washed (based on how strong the scent of dish soap is), the scent of your shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, cologne, and aftershave, approximately the last time you brushed your teeth, or the last thing you had to eat. 

If I had the choice, I'd choose a different super power.

Well here's to another day laying in bed. At least yesterday I finally got to watch the Lorax. Way cute movie btw. 

Someone please call me, email me, SOMETHING!

Friday, January 4, 2013


Chris just contracted some sort of terrible cold. He has a fever and chills, coughing and sneezing, achey body, the works. I still have such horrible nausea and can't make it into the kitchen without gagging and running back into the bathroom.

Now that we're both sick, it's the most pathetic display of affection. We both feel bad but we still have to take care of each other. Him making me food in the kitchen, wrapped in a blanket and whimpering every so often. Me...well let's be honest the most I can do is rub his back and say, "Oh honey..." in an empathetic voice.

Maybe this is getting us ready for having a baby, because even when you're sick, the baby still has to be taken care of.

We're just so pitiful.
