5 on Friday *Pregnancy Edition*

Happy Friday! Haven't done a 5 on Friday in a while, so I thought I would do a pregnancy edition since I'm just a little TOTALLY obsessed with baby always on the brain. I feel like time is already flying by and I am really enjoying my pregnancy so far. If a song could describe how I have been feeling on a daily bases it would probably be "Happy" by Pharrell :)

1. *Weekly Bumpdate*

How for along? 10 weeks & 5 days

Baby Size: 1.5 inches, my little cherry

Total weight gain: None yet! Doing my Brazil Butt Lift workouts :)

Maternity Clothes? Just some maxi shirts that are soo comfy! I will live in Maxi's this summer

Sleep: Rolling around a lot and waking up in the night to go to the bathroom.

Best moment this week: Having our doctor appointment and seeing our little baby in 3D!! He/She moved around for us and waving arms. I began to tear up a little bit because it was so amazing.

Miss Anything? A glass of wine or ice cold beer sounds nice :)

Food Cravings: Candy and pizza (pretty much the usual haha)

Symptoms: I am feeling pretty good. Just had a couple days of nausea and that's it.
Labor Signs: No

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time? Just really excited! I have been pinning ideas on my boards and researching all things baby :)

Looking forward to: Next appointment in a few weeks!

Note to baby: Dear baby Neisslie, as we begin this thing, I need you to know that you were prayed for, longed for, and wanted more than anything in the world! I already love you so much and get very excited knowing that you are growing inside my belly. Your dad and I can't wait to find out if you will be a boy or girl. With all our love XOXO, mom & dad.

2. *Good Reads*
So I hit up Barnes & Noble right away to get some good baby reading materials. It was hard to decide but I took some advice from a fellow blog friend, Hello Happiness, and bought some of her suggestions. My favorite would have to be The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy by Vicki Iovin! So funny and just tells it like it is. I also really like the pregnancy journal called From Pea to Pumpkin. It has cute little prompts and spots to put in pictures. Others include: Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy & The Baby Names Almanac 2014 by Emily Larson.
3. *Pregnancy Apps*
Yes, I know 6 apps might seem excessive but they all give different facts, information, and FREE!! I check them daily and enjoying learning from all the different ones. Here they are listed from most favorite to least...
What to Expect
Pregnancy +
Ovia Pregnancy
Baby Center
WebMD Pregnancy 
4. *Maternity Clothes*
I'm starting to get a little bit of a bump and I'm all about feeling comfortable. I have already invested in some awesome maxi skirts and a couple pairs of shorts from Motherhood Maternity. My thought is why don't women wear maternity clothes all the time?! haha I love that they just slip right on with no buttons/zipper or love handle to hang over the sides! Another awesome site to order super cute maternity clothes for reasonable prices is Pink Blush Maternity! I told myself, no matter how big I might get, I will look stylish head to toe :) Here are a few items I ordered...
5.  *Bump Pics*
Tracking the "bump" from week 6 to week 10 (forgot to take one week 9). Can't wait to start doing my chalkboard weekly posts coming each week :)

  3. I'm so glad you shared that maternity clothes site! Super cute stuff! I know I will be placing an order soon. And the books.... LOL, The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy is one of my all time favorites!!! Totally tells it like it is. She is downright honest. I'm so glad I read that book with my first.... I knew what was going to happen truthfully without someone sugarcoating that stuff!

    Your little bump is looking adorable!! You are still so stinking tiny and cute!! Love!!
