27 Weeks

All right all I finally got more pictures taken. I actually had Ege take some last week..but I hated the pictures..haha. As you women know that have been pregnant don't feel to cute in any feel special that you get to see these! 

What changed since my last update:

-My left foot isn't swollen too bad anymore. THANK GOODNESS. I sleep on a magnetic mattress..that really helps with the circulation and it helps me sleep better too.
-Baby is def moving a lot more. Sometimes it just feels like I'm hungry when she's moving and other times it feels like she is doing flips in my belly.
-Ege felt her move for the first time this week. 
-Still don't have any weird cravings or really much cravings at all besides usual! haha
-I can't wait to see what my baby girl looks like, I find myself daydreaming about it a lot.
-I eat atleast 2 bowls of cereal every day. One for breakfast..and then for sure one before I go to bed. Lately when I get home I will eat a bowl of cereal for a snack. 
-I'm working out more...and that's giving me a lot more energy during the day.
-Went swimming for the first time since I got pregnant, the weirdest thing is the feeling that you're not pregnant. That's how I felt..kind of trippy.
-I had blood pressure long before I was pregnant..and it's been quite the battle to get it under control during this pregnancy. For now it's an "alright" reading taking meds 3 times a day to help control it. One thing that's a plus is that I have ultrasounds once a month from hear on out. It's always comforting when we go and she is growing on schedule and everything looks good. 
-I'm experiencing a little bit of heartburn that I've never experienced before I got pregnant. It sucks!
-Slowly have been getting things for the baby. Just ordered the stroller and swing for the babe today.
-I have the most random dreams with random people in it...people I grew up with...went to High School with..etc.
-I have random songs pop in my head. The other morning I had "Up on the Housetop"..I think that's the name of know..a CHRISTMAS song..haha random.
-I know that pregnancy does things to your taste buds..and it's been frustrating because something will sound good to make for dinner..I make it..and then I'm disappointed because it doesn't have as much flavor as it usually does. wahhhh...haha
-All in all, this pregnancy isn't bad at all and feel very blessed that I'm feeling good.

That's all I can think of for now...I'll add more if I can think of anything.

21 Weeks

Here I am at 21 weeks, growing by the day in more areas than just my belly..:( haha..Sacrifice right?  Here is how things are going:

1. Every once in a while I'll get sick to my stomach. It only lasts maybe ten minutes, so that's good.
2. I eat a bowl of cereal every night before I go to bed.
3. I've had a little bit of swelling. Meaning in my left freaking foot. I know, it's weird. The top of my swollen foot it feels like there is a huge bruise all the way up to my mid shin. I went to the doctor this last week, he thought was weird and said to just watch it to see if it gets if anyone has had this...let me know! 
4. I don't crave much right now that I HAVE to have. It seems like I was more like that in the first trimester. I'm not as picky with eating as I was in the first trimester either.
5. I'm starting to feel her move. I don't feel it too consistently yet, but I know it will happen soon.
6. I get irritated very easily, and people will know it when I'm pissed. No hiding it for me! haha..

I haven't done really anything yet to get ready for the baby. I've looked at cribs and such online just to check them out, but want to ask all you mom's out there what you baby products you have liked. What you haven't liked. What you use a lot and what is a waste of money to buy. Also, wondering if you all read books with your first pregnancy? If so, what books did you find helpfu? Please help this first time momma out!

Weekend in Wyoming

This last weekend we went to Rock Springs, Wyoming for my cousins High School graduation. Rock Springs is where I was born, but we moved when I was 2, so I don't remember anything about this place. It was fun to be with family. There was quite the bunch of Wilkinson clan. I don't see them very often so it was fun to hang out for the weekend.  Wish the weekend lasted longer than it did!

Here is "Pa" (my dad) and Xander jumpin' on the tramp.
Xander is a miniature Kevin (my dad). Such a cute personality this boy has! 

Colt and EJ being goofy.

This is Sophie-licious...haha...I just love this baby! My first neice on my families side!

This is my favorite picture!! 
This is where we lived in Rock Springs. Don't remember a thing.

Ege helping Sophie get wrinkles. Love it!

Uncle Todd on electric guitar, Cody my cousin on drums. They are both amazing at this!
My cute cousin Kelsey!
Jacob and Ty being goofs...waiting for everyone to go over to my Uncle Mike's for breakfast.

We had a great time over the weekend. It felt good to get away! Oh, in other news...haha...We are having a GIRL if ya'll haven't heard yet. :) Sorry I'm a slacker on posting...

16 Weeks

So here is my "16 weeks" photo. I know I'm at 18 weeks now, but I took this a few weeks ago and never got around to posting the pic then...yes I'm lazy. I'll put up another picture at 20 weeks. We find out what we are having this tuesday!!! Any guesses on a boy or girl??

For all you smart that is not deodorant...lets just say this shirt is a little stretched in that region! haha.. It's about time. :) I feel bigger than I look in this picture. I guess the view is different for me than others...since I'm looking down and see my belly stickin' out.

Things that are happening so far in the pregnancy:

1. I had "morning sickness" up to 3 months...seriously right when 3 months hit...the nausea was gone!! Freak ya. 
2. I get hot hands seem to get the hottest on my body. Weird.
3. I have random dreams every night. Sometimes more than one a night. If I see someone, think about someone, look at a picture of someone..I have random dreams about that person that night.
4. I seem to have random songs in my head ALL THE TIME. Some I haven't listened to in so long. I especially go to bed with a song in my head..and wake up with a different song in my head.
5. I haven't had any weird cravings so far. The first three months, I was more prone to feel sick at the thought of certain foods. Right now I feel somewhat more back to normal and I'm not as picky with what to eat.
6. If I'm on my feet for too feet start to ache so well as my back..yeah I know that's gonna just get worse...needless to say..I'm very excited for the pool to open!

And that's all I can think of for now. Peace.

Happy Mother's Day Mom

Happy Mother's day to a beautiful, amazing and most caring person I know. Words cannot describe the gratitude I have for my mother.  She is always willing to help, doing everything possible she can to serve others. She is truly my best friend. I can tell her everything, even if it is embarrassing or shameful on my part. She doesn't judge, just loves her kids for who they are will do anything for them.

Mom, thank you for all you do. Whether it's calling and check up on me everyday to see how I'm doing to buying me a diet coke when you're visiting and I've had a hard day. :) Thank you for being an amazing mother not only to me but to EJ who hasn't had a mother in his life for 14 years. I can't imagine how it would feel to not have a Mother in my life, especially one like you. What an amazing blessing you are in my life. I love you Mom.

Isn't my mom Gorgeous?!!!

Big Gulps Huh?

Welp...I'm pregnant! Yep, I peed on one of those sticks a few months ago and yes indeed we have a baby on the way! We are so dang excited!

Was it planned you ask? Yes, yes it was. We had been feeling the spirit strongly before we got pregnant, knowing that it was time for us to start a family. Heavenly Father works in mysterious ways, and since we got pregnant, things have been falling into place. How very blessed we are. Our precious baby will be joining us in mid October!

We Made It!

We made it to our 1 year anniversary! I really can't believe that it's already been a year. It has seriously FLOWN by! 

We celebrated the day before since our anniversary was actually last sunday. We just relaxed during the day, worked out together, had us some Jimmy Johns for lunch got ready and went on got pedicures. (Yeah that was my idea) EJ was a great sport in going! haha... I think it takes a real man to get a pedicure. :) The night was in Ege's  court where we went to dinner. He surprised me and took me to The Roof in downtown SLC. We had an AMAZING view of the temple. I'd never been to their before and it was so fun to dress up and go out. We don't do that very often! It was a great day and I look forward to and eternity more anniversaries! haha..cheesy I know...but it's true.

There have been several ups and downs in this one year. Not in our relationship, but in other areas of our lives. It's been quite a growing and spiritual experience for both of us. I wanted to share the things that I have learned in this first year of being married:

-Going to the Temple together REGULARLY is important. 
-Praying and reading scriptures together daily is a MUST. 
-Having FHE even before having kids is an amazing experience and I can really tell when we do have FHE together how much stronger the spirit is in our home.
-Going on dates is important. Even though we don't have a ton of money at the moment, just going to dinner is amazing to me.
-If you don't speak up about what bothers you, the problem will NEVER get fixed and will cause problems later.
-Let down your pride and apologize...
-I think it's healthy to speak your mind to each other. It lets you both know where you stand. It's good...

That's all I can think of for now. Yes most of them were spiritual things, but you know what people...The foundation of your marriage and what keeps you together is The Gospel of Jesus Christ. Plain and simple. I'm grateful for EJ and all that he does for me. He makes me laugh all the time which I love. He has such drive and motivation to reach his goals. I love you Ege.

Nuttin much goin on hurrrrr (here)

So I've had people mention to me that I NEED to update my blog. I know I know...I guess I have lost motivation for the time being and apologize for the neglect of my blog. I know you all are just dying to hear what is going on in my life...that you are waiting by your computer 24/7 to see if I have update my blog......haha..right...

Umm...What's going on here? Work...stress..and more work. That be about it. But we are happy that's all that matters right? :)

To catch you all up..we had a great Christmas! We spent it with in Tremonton. For those of you who don't know where that is, my brother-in-law made my mom, sis-in-law, and me a t-shirt to wear for you all it says "Where the Hell is Tremonton? It's in Box Elder, County, Utah...Dumbass" haha. I love it! 

The parentals and my brother Nate and his family came up to Tremonton as well. We had a partay!! We played tons of games my personal favorite was playing the "Not So Newlywed Game". Talk about being scarred for life. Hearing stuff about my parents was scarring but hilarious at the same time! You had to be there to get the details! haha

New Years was really quiet. Ege and I were both not feeling so good so we ordered cafe rio...then relaxed and later went to the movie "Yes Man". It was hilarious..but a very inappropriate part in the movie that could have been left out. We made it home just in time to see the ball drop. 

Welp..I think you are all caught up in our exciting lives!! haha...I'll think of something better to post soon...if you're lucky. :)
