We also decorated our house with lights for the first time as well! I would have to say that I think Shawn did a great job! I also have a picture posted of me and Shawn. It is hard to see pictures of me as I am growing so fast. I have been getting bigger by the day and have major pains really low at times. The doctor says it is due to my ligaments and pelvis stretching...OUCH...is all I can say! Sleeping is becoming more difficult as my hips hurt because I don't normally sleep on my side. So I am adjusting to all the changes that are occurring. But I know it is all worth it and I have a wonderful husband that is helping make it even easier.
Here are a few of the gifts that Wake got this Christmas! Shawn's Aunt Sandy and Uncle Bennett sent these gifts and my mom bought him all the gifs in the second pictures. I would have to say that he did very well considering he isn't even born yet! But we thoroughly enjoyed getting the gifts as it made everything so much more exciting! He is being spoiled already!
We hope everyone had as Merry of a Christmas as we did and we miss and love you all!!! Hope you have a wonderful New Year!!!

I have also been dealing with another issue. I have always wanted to be pregnant and have a child. So to me, this is one of the most exciting times in my life, aside from marrying the man of my dreams! However, I have struggled a little. It is mind boggling at how RUDE people can be. I have heard more negative things than positive (moreso at work). I hear how "fat" or "chubby" I have gotten, been asked how much I ate over the weekend b/c I look "huge", been told I look "really pregnant and big" (in the beginning of the pregnancy) and then now get odd looks and comments on days I have have a tighter shirt on. (even if it is a pregnancy shirt) I have to remind people that I am growing a human being inside of me with all these comments. I know a lot of it is in jest, but really. I get negative comments about the name we have picked and they always voice their true opinions no matter how rude they are. I have even had people say that they are not as excited b/c it is a boy...I mean, are you really that picky. I am having a baby and didn't know that it mattered whether or not it is a boy or girl. Overall, I am struggling enough with gaining weight and having my body change, so all these comments make it even harder. I just feel I need to share this with others as I would have never imagined that I would have to experience this. I think it is sad how others can make such a wonderful experience seem so bad at times. But I am doing my best to not listen to these comments and not let my mood swings kick in and over react.

Here is a small video of our 19 week sonogram. It was taken on November 26th and that is when we found out we were having a baby boy! I took a small part of the video with my camera so I hope it comes out okay. Isn't he just precious!
Here is also a picture of my 20 week belly. (Half way there!!!! Yeah!!!) It was taken a week ago. I have noticed that some days I look bigger than other days. It also depends on what I am wearing that day.

As you can see I look very prego in the picture above. I have started to pop out and it is really weird. I am officially out of my clothes and in maternity clothes. Although, some are still a little big at times. I am ready to look pregnant rather than fat!!! I heard the heart beat again and we are scheduled to find out the sex at the end of November. We can NOT wait! I am doing better as I have more energy and don't get as sick as often.

Here is a picture of me and Shawn at my brother's wedding. It was this past weekend and we all had a great time. I don't have any other pictures to post at this point b/c I uploaded them all to my mom's computer and forgot to send any to mine. We got to see a lot of family members and it all went by so quickly. Can't wait to see everyone again.
Me and Shawn will be going to Hickory, NC to visit his aunt and uncle and some of my old friends. I will also get to see a very special little girl in my life, Cami. We are excited b/c his brother and Amber will be coming to visit for a night as well. I will post pictures after we get back!

As for me...my clothes are getting much tighter. I have started wearing the smaller maternity clothes to finally get some comfort. Some of my clothes still fit fine, but others make me miserable all day. I have put off the maternity clothes as much as I can as I know I will have plenty of time to where them. But thanks to a few friends, I have gotten a bunch of clothes that fit me now and will grow with me. I am still very tired but have more energy throughout the day than I have been having. We are finishing up our 11 weeks today and only a few more weeks until I hit the 2nd trimester. And I hear I should start feeling much better. So lets cross our fingers!

As for me I feel very very FAT!!! I still fit in my clothes but barely. I think I am eating too much because it is not baby at this point. So needless to say my self confidence stinks because I just feel and look miserable. Shawn is being a great support though. Its tough to feel so big when your not even showing yet. I eat a lot but more little things throughout the day as I can't really eat really big meals anymore. (depends on the day) ha ha! But I have noticed that I have more energy when I workout...the problem is getting myself to work out :). I have been doing good though. As for nausea...its better but still comes and goes. But definitely better. I think I have a hang on how to eat throughout the day to not let myself feel so yucky! As for now things are good!

As for me turning 30, Thank You to everyone that had called to wish me a happy birthday! It was a crazy day with work and then going out to dinnner. Shawn was awesome. He sent me flowers, took me to a nice dinner, and bought me an awesome new stereo system for my car. I can't wait to get it installed. It was a great day and we are going to dinner with all the aunts and uncles tonight for dinner. I can't say that turning 30 was great, but my friends and family did all the could to make it an awesome day! Thank You!!!

As of now we are going onto our 7 weeks with Baby McKendrick! Week 6 was good with some major times of nausea. I am ready for the crappy feelings to end and start enjoying the pregnancy. I wake up feeling yucky and go to bed feeling yucky. I am also ready to have energy to do things. Work has been tough due to being so tired and the emotions are all out of control at times. We go to the doctor this coming thursday so I will make sure to let you know how it all goes! Cross your fingers as I hope all is going well!!!!

We have also had the pleasure to ride out Tropical Storm Faye this week. We had lots of wind and rain and leaks in our roof...ugh! Time to get a new roof I guess! It has been an eventful week but everything is fine on the homefront. We are leaving town for a mini vacation with our best friends next week. We are going to Fort Lauderdale and can NOT wait. I will hopefully post some pictures for everyone to see when we get back!
