{September 20, 2012}   28-29 week Update, on my Pregnancy

Well  sorry Ive been MIA lately in my own little world counting the weeks down to the T. An have so many emotions running through my mind. I want her here so bad, and at the same time Im wanting her to stay in because feeling her inside of me moving around and looking at my tummy and seeing her, touching her with her having reaction to me and my husband hands on my belly she loves, When we have the doppler out listening to her She always makes herself known by kicking it lol, its so adorable. Im just going to have such a missing piece inside me when she is born but I no that when she is here all of that will be great memories as we are trying for our next one and taking care of her and watching her grow to be a beautiful woman.Well Im right now going to stick to a plan of having her natural with a epidural and any thing else I need for pain, if worse comes to worse than I will opt for a C-section. But Im going to try to do what a woman’s role is at least try my hardest too. Just so I can say That I tried with all my might. My Tears are going to be going as soon as we hit that last week and I don’t even no if im going to be able to sleep that week leading up to her birth. This is something I have dreamed about all my life and to have it come true, god has answered all my prayers as well as my grandfather up above and my husband. I love you 3 very much for making this happen. Also my Obgyn  for sure cant forget her she has lead us down a good patch and helped in alot of ways. I have started on our suitcase already packed all the baby’s clothes as well as all matching headbands and Beanies and socks, And her first coming home outfit. I still have so much to get ready to put in there but as time draws nearer than I can wash the clothes we are taking along ect. Well as for the 28 visit to my Obgyn went really good, prior to that I had to drink a Oral Glucose Tolerance Drink, Fruit punch a 10 ounce bottle, which I wasnt looking forward to that just cause drinks ive had to drink in the past for other tests that I could never hold down. Well this was actually good and I got it down within 10 mins. Do you all remember those Popsicles back in the day called outter pops with the bears on them, its taste just like the juice before you frezze them lol. Well a hour later my husband left work came home to get me and we went down to the doctors office, first off my fav doc came in and talked to us and couldnt believe how big I was her exact words were,(Christina I didnt even notice it was you I had to look twice because from the last time you were here you belly exploded lol) I was looking at here like really ,hehehe but knew she was just in shock how much progress ive made in so less of the time of getting pregnant, and than my husband goes well honey your belly is just going to get larger, I told him be quite in a joking way…But she measured me and to find out at 28 weeks im actually measuring at 29 weeks. So the baby is a week more than what she should be. Which probley means she is going to be a bigger baby. Im hoping not that big, I want all my stuff to go back normal again lol. And she told me after we got done talking about what things have been happening new symptoms in all. She told me as of today every 2 weeks I see you till you hit im 38 wks and than at 39 wks I see her every week till the baby is born…And than I said my goodbyes till next time and went to the lab to get my blood drawn by my favorite phlebotomy tech, she is always so gentle and has never messed up once on me..Well today its in my 29 week, and I called for the results and I dont have gestational diabetes at all, this baby is doing so good..Im so happy…Well on my husband and I first wedding anniversary I got surprised the 3 days before with being able to go see the baby on our last 4D ultrasound, it was extra special because know we have a closer image of what she is going too look like when she comes out, they say at this time its best to see what she will look like when she is born. And all I got to say is WOW. She couldn’t be as perfect as I ever thought in my life. The first Image we saw was her foot right on top of her head, lol. Theres a pic for you all to see. We had got 48 pics in all done. Which Im glad cause they have captured her smiling, yawning her feet, her girl parts, her profile, her daddy’s lips and nose lol. We also got a DVD and a bag of goodies lots of mags in some breastfeeding things. Im highly recommending Peek a BOO 3D in Fredericksburg there Websight is

The lady who does the ultrasounds actually is the one who owns the place and she is so sweet and takes the extra time out for you to make sure you get the best pictures and experience as possible.Well after that my husband and I went to go eat at Longhorn Steakhouse and to starbucks, was a really nice day we had together. As midnight stricks on the 17th we gave each other our anniversary gifts, For paper Gifts we he had made me real prudy origami  Red Roses and put some rose oil on them so they smelled real it was really romantic and they came out so fancy looking. As for my paper Gift for him I had made a Scrapbook that I have been saying I was going to make forever lol, but finally did to make it extra special when I did give it to him. Than we each had got each other one real nice gift, He got me a real expensive set of ear rings from zales which match a Heart Bracelet he had got for me on Valentines Day, it melted my heart, But at the same time I was thinking omg cause we had both got each other something from zales on the same holidays as before this would be the second time we did this. But I got him a really nice watch from zales to and he actually loved it, I was kinda nervous to give it to him, cause its hard to make sure you got the right thing for a man. But I did good YAY… And for our Anniversary which was September 17th, we went to the Baltimore Aquarium was really kool we looked through through the whole thing and took lots of pictures it was close to a pier which was beautiful. After spending a wonderful Day we ended it with a special dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, Was so good. And than we drove home and watched our baby’s dvd on TV And Unwrapped our top layer of our wedding cake. And how everyone says it taste horrible I found out a way to do it where it was in the freezer for a month and It came out tasting like the day that we had got it for our wedding..I will post step by step in a blog on its own…So you soon to be married couples have this to use, I cant believe how long this butter cream lasted. Plus there’s pictures of my cake also so you can see how perfect it was when my husband cut into it.Well as I bring this to a end wanted to update you with my side effects as of know. Just been having hot and cold flashes really bad, feeling like my stomach is stretching more than ever, which makes my stomach so sore, and Leg cramps real bad, and my normal back and leg related stuff from before the pregnancy. As of that Ariella has so close to being here so you all as well as us welcoming her into the world….

Hey Beautiful, We really did have a good Anniversary 🙂 was such a good weekend.
So happy our little one is growing nice and strong, she is getting big and moving like crazy! Can’t wait to have her in our arms and be able to see her for real. I was truly suprised that cake was preserved so nicely, especially after being frozen for a year! too crazy.
Love you lots babe. Muahz!

I love you too Papabear. Im glad we got to do all the stuff we did for our anniversary it was something truly special that I will never forget. Yup Ariella is full of energy, when I was laying on the bed last night holding my tummy I was like that for a good 30 mins feeling her move around, and everyday I wake up and go back to bed she wakes up and moves around.. Like this morning when she had 27 hicups in 3 mins.. It was so cute, Im going to miss that when she is here, but to see her do it will probley be much cuter. I also love how the cake was, but after we ate our goodluck slices lol, I didnt want us to keep eating it cause it was so old. At least we had a slice which is tradition. I love you so much baby I really do, you hold me together always. Even at my weakest points….

How long have you guys have had most of the big fish and sharks they must be old cause of how big they are? Well Have a goodmorning..
