24 Weeks And A New Home!

Well a lot has happened lately! We found out our offer was accepted on a house and also found out what we are having! So keep reading :) Exciting times!

How far along? 24 weeks 
Weight gain so far? 14 lbs.
Still wearing regular clothes? Mostly, at least the ones that are stretchy :)
Have you heard the heartbeat?: YES! It is wonderful when you first get to hear their little heart beat! It really makes this new little life I'm carrying much more of a reality!
Gender: Another GIRL!
Stretch Marks? No, and hopefully we won't get any thanks to Arbonne's firming body cream! I love their products because as their motto states their products are "pure, safe, and beneficial"! I started my own buisness as an independent consultant and one of the perks is getting to use their amazing products! If you are interested let me know and I will be glad to get you more info!

Who do you think baby will look like? Don't know. Most people say Atalisa looks more like her daddy so hopefully the next one will look more like me :) But I love seeing how God combines two people and makes them into one new individual with a little from each!

What is your favorite thing about being pregnant? I love feeling the little life inside do their little gymnastics to let you know they are there!

Have you and dad felt baby move? Oh yes! All the time!

When did you start to show? Around 14 weeks I'd say.

Happy or moody most of the time? Happy!

Do you have any cravings? Nope.

Any complications? Thankfully not.

Labor signs?: None

Symptoms: Starting to get the the uncomfortable stage, over halfway through though!

Wedding rings on or off? On

Best moment this week? The offer on our house has been accepted! It definitely has been a long process, but I think God wanted us to realize it was going to be all him! We are very thankful for the miracle that He's doing on our behalf!

The last house I told you all about ended up not working out which we are thankful for now! They ended up changing their mind about fixing the electrical, and so for the second time we pulled our offer. 

We looked at several more houses the following weekend, and we saw the house! In a very nice neighborhood, a big back yard that backs up to trees, deck, two car garage, 3 bedroom and 3 baths, on a quiet cul-de-sac. 

They were asking more than what was our price range so we weren't sure if they'd accept our lower offer. Our Realtor called to see if there were any other offers and there was only one more other than ours.

We prayed that if God wanted us to have it He would work out all the details! It was definitely a miracle because the other Realtor pulled it off the website so the bank couldn't wait for anymore offers to come in. He told them that he thought our offer was the best and he thought they should accept it. They countered, but we kept our price and they ended up accepting!
It's so much better than the several other houses we put offers on and didn't get, and has room for us to grow! God is so good!! Now for the fun of closing and making it our home! 

Who will help with baby after their born? Probably my wonderful mother or sisters will come to help out for a little bit. 

Have you bought anything for baby yet? Not yet. Since it's a girl thankfully I'll already have a lot of stuff!

Any days you wish you weren't pregnant?: For the most part I do really enjoy being prego. Starting to get a little uncomfortable tho, but that's probably God's way of getting us ready for labor.
Sleep? Been sleeping pretty well for the most part.

Looking forward to: Getting settled into our new house! 

Wanting to pose for a picture too!

24 weeks!
