That ice cream cake tasted great... until it came...
My new prenatals came today and they are freaking huge and I tried to take one and succeeded in throwing up everything I’ve eaten in the past few hours. Lovely.
On a brighter note, we may have found our baby boy...
Thoughts? I was unsure at first, but it’s growing on me. And it certainly seems to fit, with hiding from the doppler and then kicking the table during sex.. he’s mischievous already (or she, but I’m starting to think it’s a little Loki in there). :)
What I don't get is,
When I was pregnant with Sophia, everyone was very encouraging - you can do it, you can finish school, you’ll be a great mom. Now I’m engaged, living on our own, and THRILLED about baby #2, but my own family isn’t even encouraging anymore. I mean, they can clearly see that Sophie is happy and well taken care of, if nothing else. So why can’t they just accept that I’m...
102 degrees outside
With humidity it’s supposed to feel like 105. Noo thank you, just walking to the car was torture.. I’ll be hiding in the air conditioning until the sun goes down.
My rings are ready to be picked up!
I finally got my engagement and wedding rings sized (not that I can wear the marriage one yet. But they’re a set). I’ve been wearing my engagement ring for two years and it’s always been too big, lol! So I took them in last week and they called saying they’re ready. Yay! I miss my ring, I keep feeling for it on my finger and then freaking out momentarily when it’s not...
We *might* get a house!
My grandpa buys houses and rents them to people. He knows we want a house so that we can have a yard for the kids to play in; as they get older we’re going to need a yard so we can get a swing set, sand box, kiddie pool, etc. for them. Our apartment is nice but it sucks having to drive to the park every time we want to spend time outside. Well I had my eye on this one house in particular...
I'm getting a mesh water ring sling!!
My mom’s friend saw me talking about it on my status and totally just ordered me one! She asked which one I wanted and then she managed to snatch the very last one for me! How freaking nice of her!! This is the one I’m getting: http://www.etsy.com/listing/95174429/mesh-water-ring-sling-pastel-disco-dot?ga_search_query=mesh+water Cute right?! I love her! :D
Took Sophie to the pool today!
And for the first time all summer, she actually got in the water! LOL! She usually just stands at the edge and splashes or sits down and puts her feet in the water, but is too scared to actually get in. Today she did! And she loved it! It just took some time to let her get comfortable with going in the water. :) But we had to leave for nap time because she was rubbing her eyes and getting sleepy,...
My Mei Tai shipped!
It should be here by Monday at the very latest! Heck yeah!
That moment when you realize there's poop on your...
Yeah, it’s been one of those days. -.-
Oh yeah and I'm measuring 14 cm. :)
At least I’m consistent, LOL! All throughout my pregnancy with Sophia, I measured a week behind with my fundal height, and now I’m doing the same thing with this pregnancy! Last appointment, at 11 weeks, I measured 10 cm. :P
Baby's heart rate was 156! :)
It took FOREVER to get though. My placenta has developed a lot more since my last appointment, and is apparently right in the front of my uterus - no worries about placenta previa! But my midwife had to manipulate the doppler around the strong whooshes of the placenta to hear baby’s heart beat. Every time she found it, baby would move to a new position and we’d have to start all over!...
Headed to my 15 week appointment with my midwife!
And not only is my mom coming, my brother’s coming along for the ride! Haha:)
My back hurts
So bad. I need to call a chiro. Or just get a massage. I don’t even want to stand up it hurts so bad. :(
My mom might come with me!
She sent me a text saying “I don’t want you going alone though.” Which I think means she’s going to come meet my midwife tonight! I’m so excited haha. I know she doesn’t think she’ll like her, but come on. My midwife is so sweet and awesome, how could she not like her? Me and my mom are more alike than we like to acknowledge, LOL. Usually if one of us...
Bret has to work tomorrow and Andi (my best friend/doula) doesn’t have a babysitter. So it looks like I’m stuck going to my midwife appointment alone! I’m trying to talk my mom into going with me but she’s very against the home birth thing and doesn’t even want to meet them. :(
My poor girl.
She’s got a fever, fussiness, sleepiness, the works. This tooth #7 is really taking it out of her. I’m thinking maybe there’s more than one coming in, but she won’t let me near her mouth to check. She’s just laying on daddy’s chest right now and chewing on a frozen teether.
That reminds me...
I HAVE A SIXTEEN MONTH OLD. And an almost 15 week old fetus in my belly. Well, uterus, to be exact. How is that even possible?!
I miss Bret.
I just want him to come home and hug me. The thought that I won’t see him until Sunday night is killing me. And then he works a 15 hour day on Monday so it’s not like I’ll be seeing him then either. He’s even going to miss our midwife appointment. Our midwife loves him though, so that’s a good thing. It’s the thought of sleeping without him that sucks the...
I can't wait to offend people by whipping out my...
Hello dark circles.
I only got about 3 hours of sleep last night, between saying goodbye to Bret (lol) and then having to be up at 6 AM to drop him off. It’s showing too. Under my eyes looks awful. I need some concealer. :/
Reading Fifty Shades of Grey on my Kindle while Soph naps. I’ve heard it’s awful, but I have to see for myself. :P
So my daughter was being a butt.
And I couldn’t figure out why at first. She’s been trying to bite me the past few days, and she never bites. Then today she wouldn’t eat breakfast and she was just being cranky and kinda mean. So I went poking around in her mouth and discovered tooth #7 about to break through the gums! :D That explains everything. I’d be a butt too if my teeth hurt.
I think I'm addicted to finding good deals on...
Like yard sales and thrift stores. I’m going yard sale-ing again this weekend. But finding brand new clothes/books/whatever for extremely cheap feels great. :)
Our house smells yummy :)
Pork chops, rolls, green beans, and whatever else Bret decides to make with it for supper. Yum! This is the last meal he’ll cook for me for the next like 5 days, between work and his camping trip. How will I ever survive?! Must. Learn. To. Cook. >.< Plus his sister will be here so I’ll have to feed her for four days too. I foresee lots of pizza and Taco Bell in our future. His...
Just ordered my Mei Tai!
Ah I’m so excited! Hopefully it doesn’t take very long to ship. :D
Bret’s leaving me for the weekend to go on a camping trip with the scouts (he’s an assistant scoutmaster). And we have a meeting with our midwife on Monday but since he’s taking off all weekend, he has to work all day Monday and won’t be able to come unless I get it rescheduled to Tuesday. But his little sister will be here all weekend to keep me company, and I think my...
The past few days..
Sophie’s schedule has been way out of whack. Remember how I said she’d been waking up at 9 in the morning-ish and taking a nap around 1 every day? Well forget that. Ever since I said that, she’s been waking up at 7-7:30 and napping at 10:30-11. Which I kind of like because it forces me to get up and get the day started, and by 2ish she’s up for the entire rest of the day...
The cutest thing ever
Is when Sophie runs down the hallway after the kitty yelling “Kittykittykittykitty!” :)
I finally sit down for almost the first time...
It’s like (s)he’s saying: “You’re finally being still, mommy! Now I can play!” :D
