Month Six

So I've made it to my sixth month of pregnancy! Less than 30 days and I'll be in my third trimester...yikes! By request I'm put up a couple of pictures of my baby bump. I finally think that I look pregnant and not just fat and I think that it helps that complete strangers having started asking me when I'm due. Sorry they're just cell phone pictures taken in mirrors. When I actually remember to take pictures of my bump it's when I'm home alone.
So far in this pregnancy...
  • I get dandruff and acne on my shoulders (yeah I'm attractive!)
  • I crave chocolate but not plain chocolate. Just chocolatey things like brownies!
  • I'm obsessed with mayonaise. I don't eat spoonfuls of it or anything but I like it a lot!
  • I also went through a tomato phase.
  • My weight gain is right on track but believe me when I say the numbers on the scale are starting to stress me out.
  • She kicks like crazy!
  • I wake up every morning at 6am needing to pee.
  • Working even a 4 hour shift on my feet exhausts me and my feet have started swelling.
  • I have crazy dreams
  • During the first trimester I threw up while brushing my teeth at least 50% of the time. I gagged 100% of the time.
  • I haven't gotten to experience the "fuller, thicker" hair everyone raves about during pregnancy. I lose just as much hair in the shower now as I did before I was pregnant.
  • However, hair has grown around my belly button...yet even more evidence of my attractiveness.
and we're pretty set on a name....
Isabel Susann Jackson
We plan on calling her Izzie. If you know me pretty well then you know I may or may not have taken the name Isabel from Grey's Anatomy... (I know, I know I'm obsessed but it's such a pretty name). And Susann is a combination of our mom's names. Susie + RaeAnn = Susann


  1. LOVE the name! You know you remind me of Izzy, so it fits. So cute! And I totally have belly button hair too, its gross!! Ryan made fun of me for it.

  2. Yeah pictures! I'm excited to see you and Lisa in November and see your bellies! And I LOVE the name. I could never combine our mother's names, Kathy and Marlys, that would just be an odd combination. But I like the family name as middle names. Hence, James after Dustin's middle name. I'm so so excited for you!
