Second Trimester: Bump Update Via TikToK ♡

 


Time is flying by, I feel like I still haven't had too long with my growing baby bump. But the symptoms did get better during the second trimester. I finally got off the morning sickness medicine and began to eat more normal. Also started to cook without a mask (I was using one because cooking smells made me throw up). I had more energy. Did try to eat with the small amounts of food six times a day method, I think that help me ease back being hungry again. 

Now entering the third trimester I started to feel lack of energy at the end of the day. I feel like I am super sleepy by the night time or I need naps during the day which I can't do since I still work full time. Which by the way I feel it's a blessing to experience this first pregnancy while working from home. I could only imagine how much more difficult it is to work in the office feeling so sickly and adjusting to your new energy and changing body (like the constant going to the bathroom). 

Overall, FEEL so grateful for this time to see my baby girl grow and feel here move and kick even more now. To me it is so special to just know I made her with my husband and continue to carry her literally in me with the help of God. 


Here are some tiktoks where I document the growing bump:

BABY OGILVIE IS A...? #genderreveal #wecanbearlywait ♡



Where has time gone?? I mean I am already in my 2nd trimester and feeling so much better.  We had the opportunity to go to Florida in MARCH when I was 13/14 weeks to do a combined party for our gender reveal and arrival of baby Hoffmann my sister's third baby girl--- we are so excited. The theme was "We can BEARLY Wait," so we had cute teddy bear themed centerpieces and cookies. We had a light lunch served and our fav Nothing Bundt Cake. Our local friends and family joined us. 

We faced timed my sister and her family in CA and my aunt in Miami and my cousin and her family in another part of CA. My sister Kim is the one who knew the results. I did the DNA test in AL but sent her the results  until the party she didn't find out until two days before. 

We had a big black balloon with blue and pink tassles strings tied to the top and inside had confetti of the gender of our baby.

NOW for the moment!!! I was so nervous don't know why?? I guess this really meant baby is really coming, I will be able to picture the future more and start planning and buying baby everything. Mark held the ballon since he is tall and I had to pop the balloon. I tried and couldn't and then everyone was encouraging me to and I started to cry...maybe hormones but I just felt an intense feeling of gratitude that I WAS ACTUALLY HAVING THIS MOMENT WITH MY HUSBAND AND MY FAMILY THAT IT WAS REALLY MY TURN TO BE A MOM not sure why that felt more real in that moment but it did. I had no idea what our baby gender would be but I knew the baby growing inside of me already picked us to be parents. So I FINALLY POPPED it and...

IT'S A GIRL!!!! PINK confetti filled the air as I had tears of joy and shocked at the fact I get to be a girl mom of my own (I have always felt a deep connection to my sister's children). 

I also thought if my grandmam's who have passed away especially one who got the news I was pregnant but didn't make it to know she's a girl. I like to think they meet already. 

My mom literally jumped for joy she guessed baby would be a girl, my dad guessed boy and the winning votes were for boy but we having a girl!

Here the video of the party, some guest who guessed and the actual balloon popping. 








Pregnancy Symptoms: Aversions vs. Cravings ♡

                                 14 week bump 

I barely had #pregnancysymptoms the first weeks of pregnancy but towards the mid 1st trimester. Read my #aversions and #cravings below….๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคค


Aversions:
-smell of popcorn (๐Ÿฟso bad I threw up when at the movie theaters, so we haven’t gone back ๐Ÿ˜…)
-garlic taste and smell
-Cauliflower
-cooking red meat ๐Ÿฅฉ
-cologne
-too sweet or sugary treat (AND I usually love sweets) ๐Ÿญ
-oiliness/greasiness in food (like fired chicken or ๐ŸŸMcDonald’s fries taste like drinking oil)
-bleach/ cleaning supplies /fridge smell
-dirty dishes (like if I see food on it)

Cravings:
-fruits ๐Ÿ‰๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ“๐ŸŠ(ORANGE OR CITRUS anything is king hahahA)
-smoothies
-cheesiness (but I am lactose and tolerant)
-plain rice ๐Ÿš
-bread (I rarely ate carbs before)
-eggs (normally less fav breakfast item)
-cold water (I usually liked room temp)
-veggies in weird combos (like cucumber and Mayo)
-pan pizza (hard one since I am lactose and tolerant)๐Ÿ•

I also bought the book "Real Food for Pregnancy: The science and wisdom of optimal prenatal nutrition," by Lily Nichols RDN, CDE and have been learning what type of foods work best and what combos. I also loved what she said about what I am eating now is of the first of foods that I am introducing to my baby that will effect her once she starts eating solids in the future. 

I still can't feel shocked with this all and how I am literally creating a human inside me, what a blessing!

Baby Ogilvie Coming 2022!! ♡

 

 


Roses are red

Love is sweet
Our family is growing by
two tiny feet ๐Ÿ‘ฃ❤️

We have BIG NEWS...our first baby coming 2022! The video below is how we found out and then some footage of our family and friends who we told early. We don't live in the same states as our family or most close friends so most of our new was shared long distance via phone but it was still special to celebrate this happiness.  

Biggest reason I was so surprised was because I had really bad cramps which I get during my period so I thought it would come just a little late (:....





Mark and Kris Honeymoon 2021 ♡

 Our honeymoon was so great! We had our wedding of our dreams and headed to the airport hotel haha yes you read that right we thought it would be practical to just head to our international flight straight from our suite. We had a late wedding reception since we had a DJ and dancing plus we got lost haha leaving our car in the park and spot so in the end it we only had like 5 hours before we had to be up for our early morning flight. Of course we had fun treats waiting for us in our suite (strawberries and non-alcoholic drinks) which we ate and had fun with. 

The next morning we were up very early and took our connecting flight to Miami and then the next flight to SAINT MARTIN (even though it was during COVID we got lucky to find a cruise line that was sailing. At this point cruises were not sailing out of the US yet so that's why we flew to Saint Martin). 

We had the best experience with the cruise since it was barley the start of cruises sailing again worldwide so that meant people still did not trust traveling again and there were NO LINES, NO WAITING, and it was a huge ship that was not even half booked. We just showed up for the shows and got the best seats, the movie on the top deck sometimes we were just us two watching alone it was amazing. 

The countries were visited had all different rules but in order to get on the cruise and enter back to the US without having quatining we had to get vaccinated and have COVID negative test so we were green light to go tour. Each beach we went to was just magical and spending 24/7 together adventuring was so sweet. We went to Saint Martin, Barbados, Curacao and Aruba. My favorite was Aruba it was just stunning. See our day to day vlog below on video.

Orlando Florida Temple Wedding Photos ♡

 




Getting married in the Orlando Florida Temple, was a beautiful experience. All my sisters got married there and it is also the first one I went when I was a kid. It is also the first temple built in Florida now there are two more. I also actually thought I would get married in Utah which is where I had been living for the last almost 7 years. However my sweet husband thought it would be meaningful to have our special day in Orlando and it truly was.

Our Wedding Aesthetic ♡

 One of my favorite memories of the wedding will always be how the venue and decorations came together for the dreamiest evening ever that made for a romantic aesthetic! I didn't really want color so everything was nude tones from whites, ivory, blush, tones of tan and accents of gold (metal brass). Our floral design where all about those nudes colors too and textures from the flowers and contrast in the greenery. The tablescape had the same tone in colors and florals but we added half low arrangements and the other half were high--all setup with low and high candles for a candle-lite dinner experience--which I loved so much against the waterfront views. We also had handmade table numbers, our LED light Ogilvie, our wedding hashtag sign for our photobooth and another for our cake topper. One more thing I think added to our romantic feel was having live musicians for cocktail hour on the pier, for our ring ceremony and for our dinner after that we had a DJ. Overall I will treasure what our wedding day looked liked, no regrets!
