I so badly want this!

Ok so aside from all of the normal baby furniture and stuff I want, this is something that I'm absolutely in love with. The Go Crib.

During one of my first doctors visits they gave me a pregnancy magazine, which I have now subscribed to, and as I was flipping through it I came across an ad for the Go Crib, I went on their site and I've been obsessed with it since. At first Derek thought it was just a waste of money, it's pretty expensive, pretty much the cost of a regular crib. However, after I've reminded him of how many great uses it has I think he's warmed up to the idea. It's amazing for trips to the beach, picnics in the park, and for visiting grandma and grandpa since they won't have a crib for the baby at either of our parents homes, the Go Crib is perfect for that.

I was just on their website, I haven't been on it for a while and their price went down, it was at $300 and now it's at $250 and it's free shipping. How I wish so badly I had the money for it now.

I know I haven't bought this yet but I'm just gushing over it imagining how great it will be when I finally have it; 'cause I'm pretty sure I can convince Derek that it is a necessary purchase ;)


It has so much space.

It comes in a cute little backpack :)

Nursery Ideas

My first semester of Law School is finally over! My last final was on Thursday and I've been pretty much doing nothing for the past day and a half, it's felt pretty wonderful. Aside from not doing much of anything, I have been on The Bump a lot, during school I hardly ever had time to go on and do my thing but now I have all the time in the world.

I've been trying to get inspiration for the nursery and I'm loving everything I see. I wish we had our own home so that I could do so much more. I really want a tree mural in the nursery, our apartments let us paint as long as we paint it back to the original color, but painting a mural and putting that much time and detail into something that we'll just have to paint back when we move just doesn't seem worth it. Since we are thinking of moving out at the end of August I'm thinking we can put up one of the sticker art murals instead, they actually look pretty good for being stickers.

I thought I would share some of my inspirations. Since we don't know if we're having a girl or a boy I found girl and boy inspired nurseries, here are some pictures:

I really really want a zoo themed room If we have a boy :)

This room has so much going on it's so cute and I love the cute glider they have.

This is such a classic look and I love how elegant everything looks. I love the neutral colors.

The only thing I really liked about this room was the pretty purple color and the pink on the mural.

This is my ultimate favorite, this is the nursery for Tiffany Thiessen's baby. I love love love the lavender color and the tree wall art is exactly what I want. I also really want that Glider. I don't like rockers so Instead I'm going to get a cute little upholstered glider like the one in this picture. Love!

I'm so in love with the thought of decorating and putting my nursery together :)

Just Some Thoughts

I've been meaning to write a post and just got a chance. I had my last day of classes on Wednesday and now it's all studying and reviewing for the finals coming up the next 2 weeks. My last final is on the 16th and after that I get a whole month off; I'm so looking forward to just sleeping. There are a couple of things that have been on my mind lately so I'm just going to rant.

Our baby is now at 13 weeks which means I'm officially into the 2nd Trimester. The 2nd trimester is supposed to be the best part of the pregnancy, when the fatigue, morning sickness, and all of the hormones calm down, so I'm hoping it'll kick in asap. We got the chance to do an ultrasound last week and we got to see the baby again, this time it looked like a baby and "little noodle" was moving around like crazy, moving its arms around like crazy and bouncing up and down on its back, I had to keep myself from crying, I was just so happy to finally see the baby looking like a baby.

Well technically I got to see the baby 2 weeks before at my last appointment and it already pretty much looked like a baby and I got to see the baby kick, but this time it was even better especially since Derek was at this one.

So, one of the things that I was looking forward to ridiculously was having some crazy cravings during my pregnancy. I know it's only been 13 weeks but I don't really feel like I've had any legit cravings; and it's kind of bummed me out. I do seem to have one very strong craving for Gatorade Fierce Grape, it's my drink of choice aside from water. When it comes to food though I haven't gotten any out of the ordinary cravings. I hope they start kicking in.

I do however seem to have "cravings" for other things that aren't food. I am really wanting to go out dancing, I love dancing and I haven't danced since my wedding, so over a year ago. I find myself having mini-dance parties in my room or in the shower lol, yes my shower is big enough for a single person dance party. So I'm trying to get all my girls together to go out dancing in the next couple of weeks so I can get that out of my system before I get too big to even think about going out to a dance club.

Some Pregnancy Complaints:
I love being pregnant, don't get me wrong, however there are a few things that are pretty annoying. I've never had heartburn before and having it all the time now is so annoying and weird, it makes my chest hurt :(

Also TMI, but having lots of gas sucks. I'm not use to having hardly any gas but now it's like times a million. Gross and uncomfortable.

In terms of weight gain, I didn't gain any weight for the first 12 weeks and over the last 4 days I gained 4 pounds and then lost 2 so I've gained 2 pounds so far. I'm a little bummed out because I was trying to not gain any weight till the third trimester, but the fact that during the 2nd trimester the digestive system slows down, I'm going to have to really watch what I'm eating even more. Aside from all that my weight has all shifted to my stomach and it's really uncomfortable and I feel so fat, I just want to look obviously pregnant already.

I've been feeling really restless lately. All I ever do is go to class and come home and do homework/study. Derek and I sometimes go out, definitely not as much as we use to but It feels like we never have anything going on.

I haven't taken a vacation in forever it feels like. I love airports. I love flying. I haven't been on a plane in just over a year, since our honeymoon and I miss it very much.

I really want to take a babymoon in March during Spring Break but with everything going on I don't know if we'll be able to. Either way I really want to take a vacation after the baby is born, in June for my birthday or sometime during the summer. I've been wanting to go back to Hawaii, but this time Maui or to New York, I haven't been back there since my 20th birthday. I would also love to go back to Europe or Puerto Rico, but what I really want is to go on a cruise, i haven't done that yet and it would be fun to go on a caribbean cruise or maybe one down to Mexico. I just want to take a much needed vacation.

That's all I have to rant about for now :)

12 Week Ultrasound of Lil Noodle

Brain Dead

Today has been the longest day ever, well just about.

I had a doctor's appointment at 2:45. After not having slept much the night before, I got up at 7 and had class till 12:15, the whole time I was fighting to stay awake. I got home after class with enough time to have some lunch, I was starving all morning! Then I head to the doctors and i'm there till almost 6!

At my appointment I was supposed to just give some blood for some genetic test but the doctor wanted to check just to make sure everything was ok. My Doctor was trying to hear the heartbeat but he couldn't find it :( so he decided we should do an ultrasound to make sure everything was ok, so after waiting for like 30 minutes he finally did the ultrasound and everything looked great, apparently the baby was just sleeping we saw the heartbeat and I saw the baby kick! It was soooo awesome to see the little leg moving :) Too bad Derek couldn't be there. After the ultrasound I made another appointment and finally got my blood drawn. I finally headed home at around 6.

I got home, had some dinner, and worked on my memo some more. I am sooooooo over this memo. I know that sounds bad because I should be taking it by the horns, but I have no energy anymore. I am literally brain dead. This holiday break is going to hopefully give me time to sleep, something that has been illuding me for days.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving week :)

Baby Baby Baby!

It's been a while since I last updated.

School has been hectic. Midterms were crazy and I need to get myself ready for finals so I can end the semester well.

Derek and I have a new chapter to start! We're pregnant! I'm a little over 11 weeks along, we found out during week 3 but we kept it a secret, told our families at week 6 and than waited to tell our friends and everyone else at week 10. My awesome organizing-planning skills worked wonders and just like I planned, i'm due in June! School will be over at the end of May so thankfully I won't need to battle with school and giving birth :)

We're are so excited! I want to buy everything I see that's baby related but I've had to control myself. I bought a pregnancy recipe book, a belly journal(which I love!!!), and I had two other baby books that I bought before we started trying ;) I also just subscribed to Pregnancy Magazine. I need some outside reading aside from law school stuff to keep me sane!

We just had a Christmas photo session with our wedding photographers and it was a blast. I love thinking that we official have a family now, so technically that was our first family picture session :p

I love love love Christmas!

I've been in Law School for about 6 weeks and it's been extremely crazy. I really enjoy school but it's so demanding! I'm pressing forward, I know it will be worth it when it's all over :) Derek wasn't able to go to school this semester because everything was filled up, but he's going to be starting in January.

We got settled into our new apartment right around the time I started Law School. We've tried to decorate and make it our own and I love coming home and relaxing at the end of a long day at school. I finally bought my beautiful upholstered headboard and frame and it's beautiful! I also bought my dream washer and dryer: Samsung VRT Steam. I love washing close and using all the different settings. I feel like such a house wife talking about a washer and dryer lol.

We have some more news coming up and I will be sure to come back and update some more.

First Post

Hi everybody! I set up this blog a couple of weeks ago but never got around to writing anything. I start Law School in the next 2 weeks and Derek starts school in the next 2 weeks. I'm really excited to start law school and get use to living back in Southern California with my hubby. Not much has been happening lately I'm still looking for a part time job, since I will only be able to work 20 hours while I'm a full time student. I'm exciting to be doing some back to school shopping for a new laptop and other little goodies I need for school. Hopefully I will have more exciting things to say in the next coming weeks :)
