Doctors Appointment and What was she thinking?

So yesterday was the glucose test and my 26 week check up. Everything measured great for baby. Up another 3lbs for 14lbs total. Might seem a lot for some but compared to with J.....I'm a saint this time around. I think I can gained like 30lbs by now with J. So doing much better in that area. Baby E was doing great. He was bouncing all over so it was hard to catch his heart beat on the monitor but since hew as kicking at it h ard enough to move my belly, she wasn't too concerned.

On the flip side since they did the glucose testing I got to be poked and have my blood taken too. I don't think the girl really knew what she was doing since less than 24hrs later this is what I ended up with.

Also, yesterday morning one of our realtors int he building caught me as I was walking in and the first thing she said was "OMG you have gotten huge!!" Quickly followed by "Are you sure there is only one?". Seriously.....who says that to a preggo woman? Especially one almost 7 months but not quite there? And really....I don't think I've gotten that you??

100 Days

Today marks the final day of our count down where I'm in the triple digits. It's all double digits for us from here on out. Can ya believe it. only 100 days left. Man I remember when that ticker used to say 180+. It seemed like such a long time. Now here it is almost June. And I've known for 6 months that baby was on the way. Can you hear me screaming now???

Another Blogger!

Well I don't know if she really is a blogger but I love how humerous her articles are. check out the Sarcastic journalist in my blog roll (bottom right) and see what I mean. This is geared towards pregnancy so my other preggo friends should enjoy! The rest...well if you have ever been preggo you'll probably find her funny but oh so true too.

Jalepenos = Love

Are you scratching your head at that title??? LOL I know I blogged on the old site about how things were so much more different going through a pregnancy with a partner compared to all alone. I mean, with J I had nobody to help with the house cleaning, rub my feet, get me a drink, just do random stuff, etc. It was all me and if i wasn't doing it....well it just wasn't getting done. This time I've had to adjust to having that other person there doing those things for me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, but it is certainly more of an adjustment than some might thing. Cause right there with doing everything myself also meant I made all the decisions and choices. I didn't have to ask if that other person agreed that it was right or have to take into consideration/compromise with their opinion. So i guess there is a give and take on both sides. Now I get those little surprises and the help. Like last night. Such a long day yesterday and having to go to the dealership to drop off my car so they could fix the antena they broke in the carwash I didn't ask for. I swear it's always a problem when we go there but thats another story. Anyways, by the time we got home it was nearing 7pm and lets face it, what almost 7 month preggo woman wants to cook a full meal at almost 7pm after a long day at work and an hour drive home. If you said you would then your a saint and I bow I was thinking pizza sounded good and would just hope the weight didn't add on until after my doctors appointment today. My surprise is when I got home X already had planned out dinner. Not only did he plan dinner but he cleaned the dining room completely and the kitchen too. yes, there were dishes in the sink from the night before. Bad me!!! But he did them all, cleaned it up and started dinner. Dinner turned out to be baked waffle fries, beans, and home made burgers. Well frozen ones that we cooked on the foreman grill so any grease ran out and made them just a bit healthier than those fried McDonalds ones. We had all the fixings too....lettuce, tomato, creamy southwestern ranch sauce, pickles....mmmmmmmm. And then the topper....he bought me a fresh jar of sliced jalepenos. I was in heaven!! They say craving spicy food means your kid will be born with a full head of hair.....I think thats it. Well if it's true this baby is going to come out looking like cousin IT b/c I could eat jalepenos every day. Course my stomach lining and throat probably wouldn't survive but at least I'd be content with my craving. LOL needless to say we stuffed ourselves and I promptly laid on the couch and passed out. And yes....the dishes are still in the sink. :O)~

My friends who had a loss

It seems like I'm seeing more and more where close friends are experiencing the loss of a child. It saddens me to the greatest extent and often times I have no idea what to say in the form of comfort. Especially when I'm expecting a child that was so unplanned and they have been trying so hard. I found this poem on another site though and thought it was really sweet.

To the Child of My Heart
O precious, tiny, sweet little one
You will always be to me
So perfect, pure, and innocent
Just as you were meant to be.
We dreamed of you and of your life
And all that it would be
We waited and longed for you to come
And join our family
We never had the chance to play
To laugh, to rock, to wiggle
We long to hold you, touch you now
And listen to you giggle.
I'll always be your mothers
He'll always be your dad
You will always be our child
The child that we had.
But now your gone...but yet your here
We'll sense you everwhere
You are our sorrow and our joy
there's love in every tear
Just know our love goes deep and strong
We'll forget you never-
The child we had, but never had
and yet will have forever.

Our 3D/4D photos of baby

Check these out!! the first one is a great profile shot. The 2nd one shows his front profile and you can even see the little wrinkles on one side below his eye. The last one shows he is DEFINETELY a boy!




Why God Made Mothers

1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2. Mostly to clean the house.
3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.

How did God make mothers?
1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
3. God made my Mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.

What ingredients are mothers made of?
1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.
2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly use string, I think.

Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?
1. We're related.
2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's moms like me.

What kind of little girl was your mom?
1. My Mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.
2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.
3. They say she used to be nice.

What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?
1. His last name.
2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?
3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?

Why did your mom marry your dad?
1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my Mom eats a lot.
2. She got too old to do anything else with him.
3. My grandma says that Mom didn't have her thinking cap on.

Who's the boss at your house?
1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.
2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.
3. I guess Mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

What's the difference between moms & dads?
1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.
2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller & stronger, but moms have all the real power cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.
4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.

What does your mom do in her spare time?
1. Mothers don't do spare time.
2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

What would it take to make your mom perfect?
1. On the inside, she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.
2. Dye it. You know, her hair. I'd dye it, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?
1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.
2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it and not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

Do you see them?

I'm wondering if it's just me or if everyone can see these things cause it's going to drive me batty. When you view my page do you see the little wrench symbol under each section?? I'm guessing it's there if I want to do a modification to that site but I see it even if I'm not logged in so I'm you see them to?

New beginnings

So I did have my blog on but it appears that this site has way more options to customize and all that so I finally made the decision to move everything over. I don't think I'll copy over any old posts, I'm not sure I see the point in that. If anyone wants to see an older post they can go HERE to view the old blog. I don't think I'll delete it or anything anytime soon. So what do you guys think of this one??? I think I really like the format of this one better anyways!!
