Any day now.....

Sunday, October 21, 2012

It's hard to believe that tomorrow I'll be 37 weeks. Seems like yesterday I p.o.a.s. lol

We finished our childbirth classes yesterday. I feel ready for my baby's arrival. Mike put together all of her furniture, some of which we won't need right away, but her room is almost done. We had an awesome shower and received all of the things we needed plus plenty of extras. We are truly blessed to have family and friends that support us and are excited for our little family.

This is my last week of work and I have an interview tomorrow for a promotion! I'm nervous but more so about how my maternity leave will affect the promotion. I don't plan to return to work until mid April!

Anyway, everything in our lives is going well...I couldn't ask for a better pregnancy and a better husband/best friend to share it all with.

Soon we'll be 2+1 (and our first fur baby, Leo), so 4 lol

Last trimester already!?

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Wow, how the time flies. It seems like yesterday that I peed on a stick and got two double lines LOL Now, I'm 7 months along and in the home stretch. In less than 3 months I will meet my sweet little girl. I'm so excited!

So much has gone on in the 2 months that I wrote my last blog....

We put our house on the market.
Found another place to live that is much closer to work; cutting my commute from 1 1/2 hours to 30 mins! Can't wait!
We're moving in two weeks.
We've started our childbirth classes which are taught by a husband/wife team under the Bradley method. (we love these classes so far!)
I chopped all my hair off (well almost) for a short, chic sexy style. (hubby keeps telling me how sexy I look!)
I finally registered at Babies R Us....took me 4 hours but I got it done LOL

and last but not least.....

I am seriously tracking everything I eat and exercising regularly again. Prenatal Yoga and I found a 4 disc workout for each trimester and even post natal with Lindsay Brin. Love it!

There's still more to do but I'm taking it one day at a time. I feel great, everyone comments how great I look and am progressing through this pregnancy. I have a wonderful husband by my side.

I am truly blessed for all that I have...Thank you xoxo

7 months and counting....

It's a girl!

Yay! I'm so excited! So far my pregnancy has been great? Obviously it's a huge adjustment physically and mentally but it's going well.

The ultrasound today was good. Down syndrome risk extremely low, heart rate is 150, and the overall anatomy scan looked good. Thank God, so far so good.

We already have a name too! My late mother in law Kay, is the inspiration. Kayla Janae. Janae means God has answered. It's perfect and I love it.

I've been exploring birth options and I'm really leaning towards a water birth. I'm doing tons of research now on hospitals and OBs/midwives that will support my options.

More on that later emoticon

2 years smoke free!

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Today is my 2 year anniversary of quitting smoking! emoticon
Can't believe how time flies but I'm thankful I had the strength to make it this far.

I do proceed with caution because in 2006 I had quit for 2 years and went back after a stressful situation. I don't foresee that happening this time; this quit has been different.

According to my quit net gadget, I saved $5400 by quitting.....sheesh! The money spent on those killers was crazy!

Here's to more smoke free years! Cheers emoticon

Sick of being sick :-(

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Would you believe I'm now 12 weeks pregnant and morning sickness has been very minimal? A tad bit of nausea but no vomiting, how lucky am I? My biggest issues so far have been fatigue and frequent urination.

However, I have a stinking cold that's kicking my butt! I went to the Virgin Islands (St. Thomas) last week for vacation (whoo hoo!) during Carnival. I had a great time but unbeknownst to me, my friend I visited was sick and got us sick! The last day there, which was Monday 4/30, we woke up with sore throats. As the week progressed it turned to a horrible cough. I've been out of work all week!

Of course I've been to the Dr. But they cant prescribe me anything to help! I'm so annoyed I cried yesterday because I can't do anything but wait it out. Argh......

So I've been resting, gargling with warm salt water, taking Tylenol and throat lozenges (of course dr. Approved), and drinking plenty of fluids and eating well.

All I can do is wait....sigh.........

On another note, baby is doing well! I had another ultrasound the other day which was for the NT scan so I'll be sure to post a pic with updates.
