Pregnancy so far!


Thank you so much to everyone for your well wishes about our new, sweet baby coming soon.  I'm due January 7, (which happens to be Noel's first day of classes for the 2nd semester of law school),  so maybe...maybe...this baby will come at least a day early. The big brothers were both 4 days late, so we'll see!

I'm officially 14 weeks, and am feeling better than I have been.  This pregnancy has been like the boys, but much more intense (sickness wise), and that sickness has lasted for a lot longer. I've figured out what foods just don't work anymore (yogurt, milk....gag!!), and have realized what foods the baby really likes....(chicken minis and CFA Coke).  

I've made a trip everyday a few trips to Chick-Fil-A, so a big thanks to the people working there for not giving me crazy looks when I show up at the drive-thru...again, and an even bigger thanks for those few times when I've pulled up and decided, "nope, sorry, this isn't what baby wants right now", and just driven away.

What's been such a blessing, though, is that I received a calling (assignment) at church that has helped me stay busy and not think about myself, and has really been such a life saver in more ways than just a cure for my "morning" sickness (which was really afternoon/night sickness).

Charlie and Walker are SO excited.  Charlie has been asking for a baby for a long time now, and he ran and jumped and clapped when we told him.  The boys kiss the baby many times during the day and want to name the baby (girl or boy) either Santa Claus or Walker.  Both great name suggestions. 

And speaking of names....we have no ideas right now.  I like to have both the boy name and the girl name picked out before we find out the gender, so when we find out it's like "Oh there's Charlie!"...or "yayy, look at Walker!", so we have about 6 ish weeks to come up with something great. :)

I've never heard of the CFA Coke craving before! I'll have to file that away for a date much farther down the road and thank my lucky stars there's a CFA less than a mile from my house!

Well, you could name the baby Walker … it would cut down on monogramming costs and reduce the chances of your yelling out the wrong name when one of the Walkers is in trouble. Very George Foreman-esque.

I have a name suggestion and the reason why I have a name suggestion is that my sister and two cousins are all pregnant right now so I have been texting them names that I like.

West!

I love that name! Alas, my sister went with Ryan. Which is fine but her last name is Reynolds. Sigh.

I am just squealing with glee for you over here!! This is so exciting, Ashley. Praying the rest of the pregnancy goes smoothly. Any baby that loves some CFA is obviously one of the world's best babies ;)

Ashley said...

I'm so excited for you!! A million congrats :) Also, the baby has good taste in food already, so you're doing something right!

We have always had a boy & girl name picked out before the big ultra-sound with both of our girls. We won't be trying for another baby till at least next year, but we're already thinking of names, seems to get harder each time around!

Sarah said...

So excited for you!!

Brianne said...

Santa Claus might be entirely appropriate if he or she comes a day early - January 6th is Little Christmas, AKA the 12th Day of Christmas!

Mionna Henderson said...

Too, too cute!! I'm loving the name choices too! Hopefully your morning sickness will subside sooner rather than later! Good luck with your pregnancy! I'll be watching along.

Lauren {Fizz and Frosting} said...

I'm glad to hear that you're starting to feel better! That is so cute how excited the boys are!

Amanda English said...

I am going to vote for January 3rd. ;) So excited!

Sarah @ The Not Quite Military Wife said...

I can't believe we are pregnant at the same time!! I'm so excited for you and your family!

TheTinyHeart said...

Congrats Ashley!! I must've missed your announcement the other day. That is so funny that the boys suggested Santa Clause for the name!

My sister is due about a week before you, and she's had to basically give up dairy too because it makes her so sick. I wonder what that's all about? (Don't babies know that ice cream is the best thing ever?)

Over the moon happy for you guys. Also, I say go with Santa Claus.

Alisha @ The Alisha Nicole said...

CONGRATS Ashley!!!! Im thinking the boys could use a little sister!

Helene in Between said...

I'm so glad to hear everything is going so well!! and chik-fil-a is delicious whether you're pregnant or not!! crossing my fingers the baby will come a day early!

Lauren said...

Congrats!! Will there be maternity fashion posts? I'm sure you are the cutest pregnant lady!

Elisabeth McKnight said...

congratulations! i'm a little jealous you're feeling better - but i guess i'll be fourteen weeks in a week and a half and hopefully that means good things ahead :) can't wait to follow along on your pregnancy journey - thanks for sharing :)

First off, congrats! New babies are awesome and I am so, so happy for you and your family! I am the same way with baby names, I like to have them nailed down early, though naming my boy was the hardest thing ever. He actually went two days in the hospital nameless as he didn't "look like" the original name we had picked out;)

Head to Toe Chic said...

Sooo excited for you and the fam!! (I hope you got my email). I love how excited the boys are and the names they have come up with! I hope you start feeling better soon.

xo,
Angela

My mom's second pregnancy was very much like that. With me she was super careful and felt pretty good, but my sister was a totally different story. All she ate was wendy's!

beckyj @ A Lazy Crazy Life said...

Congrats, how exciting!! It's so awesome when the big brothers are excited about baby to be :)

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Santa Claus sounds perfect! ;) I hope the sickness eases up on you, lady!

Caroline said...

so, so thrilled for you still :) i'm sure you'll pick out a great name, what with charlie and walker being your record so far - both awesome names!

rooth said...

I think I must be gaining sympathy pregnancy weight with you. Either that or it's all the ice cream I've been eating. My vote is for Santa Claus

Alisa Marie said...

Now I'm craving Chick-Fil-A and I'm not even pregnant! I might have to get some Chicken Mini's for breakfast tomorrow!

Niki {Glossy Blonde} said...

Yay, I can't wait to read more of your updates! The ultrasound photo is too cute. I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well stomach-wise and I hope that passes soon!

Sam M said...

Congrats, congrats! I'm sure as the time comes closer you'll have the perfect name ready. Both of your boys have great names.

Amy Western said...

Girls sickness is much worse - just saying! ;) x

Kelly said...

I love Walker, what a great name!
