{March 20, 2014}   My Daughter is One Year Old

Hello everyone, haven’t posting in a while so this blog entry will be about, My Daughter’s 1st year old birthday !!!!!!!!!..Very Belated Post, just cause she keeps me on my toes, as all of you moms can understand.. Well for my Ladybugs B-day, I have got to say Ariella’s theme went well. At first I was stressing so bad because I wanted everything to go perfect but she helped me pick it out Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme. Since that is one of her all time favorite cartoons. I was holding that one and a hello kitty Party Plates up in the air, and asked her to point at which one she wanted the most and she picked Mickey =p ..

I went on Pinterest for the cutest ideas and saved a lot of money with that web sight. I made a Minnie mouse centerpiece, also made her a Chalk Board Sign about her First year. It looks nicer than I thought it would come out..Than I ordered her a Hot Pink and Black Romper for her very First smash cake, i got that at http://www.etsy.com/ and than looked around for a cute bow to match. The smash cake looked so cute when I was done with it. It looked like a cupcake Cake, at first she was confused what she was suppose to do lol. So I put her hands down and smashed them in and she started crying when she looked at her hands and saw cake all over them. But boy did she love the taste when she got into it.She had a couple bites of her Smash cake and than also a slice of her cake which we got done from the Fort Belvoir Commissary. I love how cute it turned out. I had some boarders changed and some colors changed to match.That is also the first day we changed her from Formula to Vitamin D Milk. she took to the change really good Than I got her Minnie Mouse Dress for her to open up all of her presents in. I’m pretty sure you can order it online if you go on http://www.Toysrus.com. Well for her Birthday !!!!!! It was Me, her Dad her Uncle Tito, And her Sissy Puppy Dog !! I had the decorations up so nice that it looked like i hired someone to do it..Also had made some finger foods that she would be able to eat. So for the first time I gave her a good size toddler plate, I had made real chicken strips that aren’t processed, and Tater tots and for a snack she had her favorite Chedder Baby Goldfish, and some of her Toddler juice.She loved the food that momma made, and also she did a great job opening all her gifts. Once I made a little tear on the gift wrap, she dived into it ripping the paper off like a pro .Which was so cute because it made it even more fun for her and us to all enjoy. She got quite a lot of toys I will post pics for you all to see. We did some opening her toys so she could peek at em. after that we all went to our favorite park, where they have ariella’s swing and playarea and they have a great dog park over there also…

so both Candy and Ariella had a fun day. I cant believe my baby is 1 already seemed like time went by so fast….. MOMMY LOVES YOU FOR ETERNITY DONT EVER FORGET THAT.



We have almost made it to 5 months on the 4th of next month Last time we took her to the doctor for her 4 month old shots she was already 14 in a half lbs, so she should for sure already be 15 plus lbs know.She has been doing really good, feeding, sleeping and also she has been baby talking up a storm,I’m interested to see if that translates to a talkative Litlle Ariella lol, I cant wait to hear her talk up a storm to me. =) . She has also  improve things like her strength and hand-eye coordination,  she grabs toys and my hair of course lol, she been doing that since she has notice I had it since she was born, also she has started petting Candy my pup, they both seem to love each other. laughs quite a bit, and she is sitting up by herself know, she rolls to her side from her back too. Im so proud of her learning process.  I love Motherhood its such a adventure watching your baby Newborn turn into a Infant and do all new things. Since I didn’t get to Breastfeed or Pump that long due to Two Seizures I Had after I had my baby the best thing I thought I could do for her is make sure she would have at least Healthy Food, so I know started on Puree’s know with the Baby Bullet. She has tried Rice Cereal, to Carrots Mangos, Sweet Potatoes, Butternut Squash, Pears which all she loves. And know to the Two she cannot stand are Green Beans, and Banana’s. I follow the 4 day to a week Rule which you do to make sure your baby does not have a allergy Reaction. I make all of her Baby food Homemade boil or Bake them first and use the Baby Bullet, my husband and I try them all to see how they taste. And I have to admit they are really good way better than the nasty stuff they sell in the cans that are overcooked and processed. In other words, stripped of a lot of its nutrients. And much of it also has fillers, thickening agents and preservatives, which are never a good idea. . Before embarking on this project . I played a game with my husband we both got 5 cans of baby food from the store, without even seeing each others cans. And went to the register to play and took them home blind folded each other and had to guess what each can was just so we could get a taste of what people feed there kids. It was so Horrible and of course my hubs got the most nastiest ones ever with meat in them, Gross lol. Well I suggest all mom’s do that so you can see what you are trying to give your child. As for that I have been reading a lot to her lately and she loves it so much she looks at me reading and back at the pages and by the time im done with one or two books matters how sleepy she is will knock out. Its rather adorable if I say so myself lol. Just cause I put the book down and get to stare at such a beautiful baby Carlos and I brought into this world…

Till next time everyone Thanks so much for stoping by, Love always Christina Cruzpagan

{March 19, 2013}   Ariella’s New Milestones

So much has been happening, my Sweetie is going to be turning 4 Months old on the 4th of April and she is doing so much  new things, I love watching her grow cause I get to be there to see her do everything first.Its a beautiful moment to experience it all with my husband.

She is know Grabbing and holding her toys and standing with assistance but she loves to stand on her feet so she goes in her exersaucer all the time know that helps her Balance & develop core strength and coordination. It Spins around as she moves and jump actions also provide her with plenty of exercise to strengthen gross motor skills. So she has hit a Milestone already using her feet. She also is making new noices when she trys to talk or chew us out in baby talk lol. Also she knows her name know because when you call her name she looks at you right away. Its truly amazing to see her no her mommy and daddy, anytime we look at her and talk to her she looks at us and gives us the most Brightest smile you can ever see from your daughter. The 9 months of carrying her inside of me was truly worth every once of it. She is going to be starting Solids as her 4th month starts, its going to be so weird just cause I remember just like it was the other day having her and know so much is changing. She also has a sleep pattern even though some days she wakes up and is fuzzy but she is learning to be a Big Girl. I cant even think of how it will be the more she grows up cause its just you think they will be small in your arms forever. And you know that one day she will start walking which for her, I believe will be before she starts crawling just because How she is with her feet. Im so glad she is my Daughter God brought me the Perfect angel from Above….

Hey everyone I know its been a while since I last posted something but Ive had way so much going on. But today I thought was better than never to post, my daughter turned 3 Months today, I can not believe 3 months ago I was in the Hospital laying in that hospital bed waiting so much for this day to come to finally see her face, and with all the pain came out the most beautiful baby in the world. I never thought I was going to ever become a mom and know that I’m one today, I will not ever take another day for granted again. She has been doing a lot of new stuff lately. She is teething a lot know, she chews on her hand loves, when we put our finger on her gums and she chows down on our fingers as if she really had teeth that hard, plus she slobbers a lot. The other day we went to Babies R Us and I had found this mesh grape that you put Ice cubes in and its like as if u were to put ice in a rag for them but a fun little shape to get there attention. Also she can hold her head up, and her legs are getting so strong that when I hold her she stretches out her legs and stands up, but with assistance though. She is also out of Newborn clothes I had to pack them all away for our next baby girl, she is know wearing 3 month old clothes.And Size 1 Diapers.. She is just so cute to watch. Carlos gave her a little bit of a lollypop a couple weeks ago and it was so funny because I told her no more after the couple licks she got of it and she kept looking at me and him trying to figure us out to try to get that lollypop back. I would shake my head no than she looked at him and he was playing showing her it and since she saw me say no she would look back at me. We were laughing so hard in the mall when it happened she did it for a good 10 mins till she figured out if dad gives this back to me mom is going to pop him in front of everyone lol, She has also started giggling and she tries so hard to talk to us in baby talk as if she is really talking, its priceless. But I talk to her as if I know everything she is saying..Hehe. I started video taping her during her second month into her 3rd and will be for the rest of the time she is growing up,it sucks I didn’t get to do the 1st month but I have so many pictures it actually makes up for it..Ugh man I got to actually see the video my husband taped when I was in labor and oh gosh, was I screaming and boy did it all come back. I felt as if I was in there watching another woman give birth watching my own video lol. Boy I didn’t no I could scream so loud…

As for my pup Candy, she just loves her sister so much, ive never seen a dog so close to a baby before, but candy will curl up right beside her when im holding her on the couch and when she cries she goes and sees what is wrong. She even try’s to share her dog treats as well as bring her toys near her and lay them beside her hoping one day she will be able to through them for her. I love it cause I was so scared that my dog wasn’t going to take well to her because she was use to being the only baby. Never think when you have a baby for the first time that a your dog will not like your child because you can be 100 percent wrong like I was. =)

Well as for me im doing okay still getting all my testing done, all I have left is blood work and I should be done for this part of trying to see what started the seizures, hopefully they have a answer or the test says something other than that, also went 11 whole months without a period, and I finally got one, it wasn’t as bad as everyone told me it was going to be though, after going that long without having one. YAY!!!!!!! And know we are starting one baby 2 know. So everyone wish us luck and send all the baby dust that you can my way……We are hoping for a boy this time around if it doesn’t happen and we have another girl im still going to be excited. But we will keep trying for one either way.

Last week my husband took me out for the first time to a restaurant since we had Ariella and she came with us, she did pretty good in there .What turned out to be a romantic lunch ended both my husband and I in a ambulance with food poisoning we spent from 7pm  to 8am on Feb 23rd 2013  in there throwing up so much and ect .And my Bro in Law watched Ariel while we were in the hospital I thank god he was able to make it in time. Don’t anyone in Alexandria, Virginia eat at Ruby Tuesday’s..I got Lobster and Steak and had the salad bar and my hubby had a seafood platter and shared the salad bar and we both were eating off of each others plates. So we dont no what got us sick but it was something. I’m just happy we are done with that, it makes me question alot when I go out anywhere to eat know even though the food looked completely fine and tasted good.

Yup my dog has alot of energy for being 5 years old, but she sure can wear out a 29 and 32 year old lol..



{January 25, 2013}   Watching my Sweet Lady Bug Grow.

Here I am up at 2:41am trying to catch up on my blog..HeHe! Well everything over here is going a little better Im trying to get on that better schedule even though how hard it is, cause its the good ole 3-4 hours wake up cycle to get feed Ariella. Which like a day like this when its a good day and I wake up easy out of bed in the morning and make my hubby his lunch and start off her fresh set of bottles and get a good chance to type some stuff up.=) Which I love, but dont get me wrong im still dead sleepy. Lack of zzzzzz’z and staying asleep gets to ya, but at the end of each day I look at it as a leap to the next day of seeing her grow up.Lately she has been growning and I mean growing, she smiles more and more each day, Yesterday was her first time going out to take a picture in the snow, she didnt even act bothered by it, she looked like a little snow baby in her Winter jacket and Pink winter boots. Sooo Cuteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Our whole family Me, her daddy, Her and our pup candy got to take pics, it was a nice moment before my husband had to head off to work. Also feeding her when I go to burp her she use to be so light to turn around to burp, know she feels like she has gained a couple more lbs cause it takes one good push to get her on her other side. She tries so much to Communicate with you, like say your taling to her she will try to move her mouth like she is talking back to ya, and the little goo”s and gaa’s ❤ I’m savoring every moment and not taking this time for granted, for I know how quickly this will all pass by. When you all see the videos I post later today you will see how much of a enjoyment it is to see her look at considerate on ya its just beautiful. Just the other night also she was having some trouble falling asleep so I put her in bed with us, as I cradled her in my arms to sleep right in the middle of me and the hubs, she dossed off in her dreamland, and as she was sleeping she kept rubbing my chin and face with her hand it felt so sweet and soft, everytime I moved my head just a mere bit away she would get her hand in touch it to the side of my face as of to tell me to move back and lay my head against hers again because when I did. She would just have her hand placed on my cheek. Almost immediately, tears gush out of my eyes, but I tried so hard to keep them in so I wouldnt wake anyone up.They were not tears of sorrow, but tears of joy and love. I didn’t want that moment to end, it was such a magical moment. Also my love had got one of her baby books we sat down on the couch and the pup joined us, lol as if she wanted to hear what it was about also. But my he started reading and she was sitting on his lap right after having her baba =) And as he read this Sesame street book she sat and listened and looked at all the pages and was so quite. It was a shocker for the both of us just to see how calm it made her, and how much she loved her daddy explaining the characters and what each one was doing, lol .That was another moment which we will never forget. We are trying to say momma and daddy alot to see which one will be the first one she says. Im so curious which one it will be as well as how cute her voice is going to be, and how nice it will to have another girl as much as he being my daughter to have to talk to.

As for the other things I have stopped Breastfeeding had to stop after my seizures, it has put a scar on my heart because I wanted to breastfeed and Breastpump for a entire year, But When I had gone into the hospital my obgyn said I had ended up getting Mastitis, which is a inflammation usually caused by infection. The Doctor had said there was a Baseball size Red spot on the side of my right breast, so After the seizure I got put on meds to help it and for that reason I had to stop, because I didnt want the baby to get any meds transferred through the breast milk. I’m really heartbroken about it, I’m glad she got the first part of my milk which had the most benefits towards her health and well being. So im just hoping the don’t do no recall on any formula which was my concern about doing it this way in the first place. Ekkkkkkkkkk. Oh also on a better note My Little Girls hair is starting to grow more and more now, Her front is starting to catch up which how long the back of her head is, and she has curls like mommy has before she blow dries and flattens out it lol. It has filled in also, cant wait to start putting bows and doing cute little hair styles on it. tehehe.. When you came out lil one you had black hair like daddy’s but it has turned my color yay =) I think you look like your dada so much though its like your my little girl version of him all wrapped up in one cute lil body. You have some things that looks like me, and ways you act also. I think you came out so perfect. You have no Idea how much I dearly Love you. As for know im going to bring this to a end and add some more cute photos….Stay tune for the next Update…



Hello My fellow Followers =) Ive been real busy lately that I haven’t got around to Blogging Lately. So here is what is going on as of know, I went to the Obgyn on November 21st 2012 and went to see how everything has been going check the heart beat which was 138 BPM, and than Got my weight checked I gain the 2 lbs back lol. And went in the room with my husband and waited for the doctor to come in, as I sweating, cause of how nervous I was to find out if any progress has happened. Well she comes in and as she says each time, we are getting so closer. And than asked me if anything new like cramping ect has happened lately. Well we went on to the exam, Im know for sure 1 cm Dilated, thought I would be more but the doctor said im progressing pretty quick being this is my First Long Term Pregnancy.

Well other than that we talked to the doctor about getting induced, and she said on my 39th week she can, reason Behind me wanting to get induced is because knowing my luck she wont be on call doctor that will be on shift the day I naturally go into labor. So since she knows my birth plan and we have a understanding if I do get a c-section she will be able to remove some of my Endometriosis, plus she knows all my medical history as well as me, I am choosing this and she said it will be safe because the baby is already full term. So how I naturally have my appointments on Wednesday this coming week will be Thursday because she will be in surgery’s all day on wed. So Thursday we will have a for sure answer since she will have a new schedule up so we can plan. I’m nervous as can be but with knowing a for sure day I can get last minute things set up and do some baking and get my doc a present in all, for helping us all through this all the way. But that’s if she doesn’t come in between know and Thursday , let hope she does that would be even better.

As for the all mighty Turkey Day A.K.A Thanksgiving =) The night before I did the Pumpkin Pie, some recipe I found on pinterest Called Browned Butter Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispie Treats, well they did not come out like normal ones, so my husband nicknamed them Pumpkin Rice Krispie Crunch. Lmao They were so hard At the end of the night I just tossed them.Totally do not recommend  that ever make them..They smelled good so unless your house smells like someone died in it I wouldn’t make them lol. I give that recipe 10 Thumbs down. Lmfao… Also made Chocolate chip cookies and a Peach Cherry Pie. And the Onion Dip we had for our Doritos and Corn Chips, also did the Devil Eggs. That all came out good. I woke up at 4am to put the turkey on, and got things prepped like the Sweet Potato Casserole, and put the Potatoes in water with seasoning just to put aside till I was ready, got the corn ready,and went back to sleep set my alarm for 7 woke up to base the turkey. And went to the DVR set the Macy’s Day Parade to record at 9am just in case I would to forget about it and than about 11am I pulled out the turkey. And than put the Sweet Potato casserole in, and got together another recipe for Pineapple Casserole I also found a new recipe for wanted to try some new things. That was a weird recipe how you make it but it smelled good at the end, but never got to eat any cause there was way to much food, but my hubs liked it. Than as we were waiting for that we made Bacon Mac n Cheese, and the stuffing and finished with the mashed potatoes. I think its so funny cause my hubs didn’t think I would be able to make thanksgiving cause of how pregnant I am, but I showed him hehe. He helped out to, it was real fun, always love cooking with him cause we take really cute pictures in the process. Well that is our Thanksgiving dinner completed and we had it all done by 12pm which was pretty good timing. It was funny also that my bro in law brought a huge box of hostess snacks cause you all no about them going out of business, so man I’m good for months and months.. There is actually people on E-BAY selling Twinkies for 60 dollars a box, which I thought was nuts. The day I heard that I went to the store got my all time favorite Swiss Rolls, which are made by Little Debbie which Hostess owns also and my Nutty Butty Treats. But that’s the story with that, like you all wanted to know that huh.. Funny funny thing though is when i went to get them I had got those had grabbed a fit Pregnancy Mag and had Sour Cream and Bacon Bits with me, and I told the cashier I know this don’t go together and she looked and started laughing cause she didn’t even notice it at all. Bad huh, oh well cant a pregnant woman have munchies while being fit hehehhehehehehehehhehe

Well enjoy the picture, I think I talked your heads off for know…

Also something that touched my heart one of my friends on facebook sent me this message she had put it in one of the Endometriosis Groups I belong too. Wanted to share how Heartfelt it was with you….

( Me & all the 176 million Endo suffers, would like to wish Christina all the luck in the world for the coming days as she begins the truly amazing journey into motherhood, she defied the medial world and proved to many that miracles do happen, your a truly amazing woman and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your little princess Ariella xxxx the long 9 months is nearly over baby. X)



{November 16, 2012}   37 Weeks 2 weeks 6 Days left

Well here is our Update for our doctor’s Appointment the other day sorry I didn’t post it the day of, but got busy doing things. Well here is how it went, I lost 2 lbs, the nurse said that towards the end my weight will go up and down, so that was good news lol, than got stumped with not so good news after, I tested Positive for Group B Strep. But than the nurse says today you get to sign the form to go into the hospital, My jaw dropped. I almost cried just to hear the nurse say that, She told me the reason I’m filing out this is so they can send my chart to the labor and delivery unit so that when I go there if I go into labor early they will have it all there already so they can take care of me right away. Signing that paper meant the world to me, it was the next step of my child being so close to me.So I went into the room after visiting with all my favorite nurses and favorite Phlebotomy Tech. As I walked into the room my husband was already in there waiting for me I walked in a told him about the test, and he said it will be okay honey. And got undressed from the waste down first the nurse came in there and Took The baby’s heart beat its was at 143 as my honey stood by my side smiling trying to cheer me up. But I was really worried, just dont want nothing to go wrong at all. And a couple things has I just thought it would finally stop, But after the nurse left my OBGYN walked in and I she told me the test came back that way also, but not to worry about it they can treat it so the baby wont be harmed during delivery, but as soon as my water breaks or contractions start I need to call her ASAP, and go straight to the hospital don’t wait for the every 5 min contraction stage. Cause they Need to start me on Antibiotics before I even deliver her so she don’t come out sick, as long as I go when I suppose to go I shouldn’t have no problems with her after delivery. Well I was just hoping the test would come out okay you know, but as long as she is healthy that’s all that matters to me. Well she started on my exam to see if im dilated and know im actually half a cm dilated, and her head has dropped down even more than last time, she said im progressing very fast, so by next week I should be more lets hope. She said I am know Full Term so she told me ways of going about to get labor started. I couldn’t believe it lol. Yup so know she went down the list. (Spicy Foods, Sex, and of all she said lemon cupcakes) Yup that was new for me too, I said what lol, she said they actually do. I never knew that at all And I was a nurse. hehehe.So she gave us the flag if she comes out know she is fully developed. She wont be in the NICU at all, that’s unless something happens of course. But she said your almost close and said I will see you next Wednesday, But before I left had to do some blood work just to keep track of me.So I went there chatted with Alexia, She is so awesome. But I asked her if she would be there when I have her and she said to call her at the office and she will try to get out to go. Yay I hope she does, she has been there through the beginning with me also. But than after we left and went to 711 and home, watched some tv and than I started thinking should we go get the stuff to start progressing this labor, I asked my husband and he was was like sure, I was in complete shock cause it was 11pm so we did a late night trip to the store lol. I looked on some web sights also to get some more ideas of what helps so I could get also. So we went to get Fresh Pineapple cause it helps bring on contractions, Spicy Cheetos,Spicy Doritos, Spicy Thai noodles, And salsa, And so far I ate one whole Pineapple a small pack of Spicy Doritos  and been Snacking on the Black Licorice, found out she hate Spicy Doritos cause she was kicking up a storm in there when I was eating them and when I stopped she stopped too funny. Thought for sure that would trigger it,but still hasnt Bohoooo. Well Enjoy the pictures once again hehehe, You never no when they will be the last pregnancy pictures I have…Goodnight everyone….



{November 13, 2012}   Installing Car Seat at 36 weeks

We put in the car seat to the base the other day, what a Amazing feeling. I had like I always say a billion in 1 things running through my mind, As I walk outside with my husband to put the car seat in it’s in my hands and it feels so right to hold it. It was Just as amazing putting it in, at first I wanted to try to see how good I would be at putting it in. But I had a cover as you can see in the picture before we had took it out and tried it, it was nearly impossible to click it in the base with that on there. Which I had planned to keep that on it to keep the dust and other stuff from going in it till the time I go into labor. Well since that didn’t work out as planned we took it off and it was entirely way easier installing it without it, So once it was in, I just put the cover on backwards so Its still covering it. HA ! HA! , I out beat The cover !!!!!!!!!!! We took turns putting the stuff together it almost had me in tears to see a actual Car seat sitting there in our car, knowing in just three weeks she would be sitting in there for the ride home, to her new place with her new Mommy and Daddy and Pup Candy. There was a lot of times I just wanted to break down in tears so every time my husband went in for battery’s for the Mirror we got so we can see her while we are driving that has 3 different tunes and lights up.She is going to love it, well when he went to get them I let out a couple tears and tried so hard to mask it up by the time he got out. He knows when there is something wrong, and when he asks, I just get worse. So it was better off that way. Well we had after we were done putting it all together went to the fire department, cause I remember in Vegas they checked if the car seats were put in right. Well we walked up and knocked at the door a gentleman opened the door but was on the phone so a lady asked what we needed help with I asked if they did Car seat Inspections and she said the Police department did, so we took off to there. Took us a while to find the place but when we did, we went in and asked if someone could do it for us and of course the person that does it wasn’t there, so we have to wait till the 18th to have it done, that’s the next time they do it. So if she comes before than we have to hope we have it installed good which its pretty good in there. We just wanted to make sure. I’m so curious how sweet the first time driving home in the back seat with her is going to feel like, plus I’m so wanting to know what my little girl looks like. I cant believe we have 3 Prenatal Appointments with my Obgyn for this Pregnancy left. i cant believe that is it, it has seriously been a long time waiting. And know that it is around the corner I’m getting more and more nervous.But at the same time I want to just hold her and tell her I love her so much.I cant wait to show you all pictures when she is born…I cant promise how good I will look in them after pushing out a baby but im sure you all will understand lol..

So we have that and one more class to take Baby 101 This three-hour class prepares parents to understand their new infant’s needs. The class includes bathing, diapering, understanding normal newborn characteristics and procedures, infant safety, nursery equipment, and when to call your pediatrician. A list of essential items or products to purchase for baby’s care will be provided. Pretty Neat huh? Oh and I forgot to add we picked out our Second turkey together, from the same place as last year, And guess who get to cook it yuppers me, woohooooo. I get to show my skills off to my love and my bro. lol

As for today, im just getting very uncomfortable with my belly growing, it hurts a lot so, ive been trying so hard to relax and not over do it in any kind of way, also my ribs and lower back hurts, we think it could be the braxton hicks but im not quite sure. I’m pretty sure I will feel the real thing when it happens, Everyday and night I have all this Caution that this can be the day or night it can be happening, so Ive been getting more and more ready for this. You can never be to ready. I got mostly a lot packed cause we should be in there for 3 days if everything goes right, or more if there is a problem. So at the last moment I’m going to grab all our daily stuff. I have moved around her clothes so much and have so many so Im putting the older ones 6-12 months aside in a bag so they can stay fresh and clean at the same time give me room to put all her stuff she will be using for her first 4-5 months. And matching outfits, Im having a blast doing that. Cause I keep thinking how awesome its going to be to have my own child and raise her..Its a beautiful feeling…Well tomarrow I will update you all again since im turning 37 weeks tomarrow yay



Wow I seriously cant believe I have made it this far in my pregnancy,Cant believe today I have 5 weeks left till I get to finally hold my daughter. I have finally started getting rounded out in my stomach know so it really looks like im pregnant 100 percent lol, Know people are coming up to me know asking when am I due or going to pop, Ive had a total of 3 people ask to touch my stomach. And had other pregnant women in elevators talk to me about my pregnancy as well as there’s,as well as others asking im I scared? The answer to that is very much (YES!), How could you not be afraid of a human coming out of your body, the pain during and after delivery, the adjustments, if the baby is going to be safe upon arrival, is she going to have her moms crappy Immune system or is she going to be completely 100 percent healthy. The list for me can go on and on. But I do love having her inside of me, the fact that im going to be giving life to my own flesh in blood, that im going to be her mom forever, ect. I’m going to miss a lot of things about this pregnancy once she comes, like feeling her move around, her kicks, hiccups which she has a lot. I just love it, to watch my belly move and no that’s my little girl in there makes the world so different to me than before. I’m also going to miss all the ultrasounds and see her grow inside of me, as you can see from the last ultrasound pictures she is going to be a 8lbs or over when she is born. =) But when she does come as 36 wks come up which she is concerted full term and It would be safe if I had labor from that point on. Its a big turning point from where we first started, Cant believe how long a pregnancy lasts until your the one behind the seat, lol. Ive been doing good lately, just the regular pains and some extras which I rather not talk about on here lol. But what I could say is heartburn is no joke, and with all this heartburn im sure she is going to come out with a lot of hair.. Also My ribs have been hurting cause of her growing outward more. Also Eczema But what can you say I’m pregnant and that is what comes with the Territory. My recent checkup which was last week her heartbeat was 143 BMP, and she is measuring good, My next visit I will be doing the Strep B test to see if I have it so that if I do I can be given Antibiotics to keep her safe at delivery, as well as me, and checking to see if I’m dilated any, that check will be at 36 weeks. Really nervous about that appointment cause it tells me a lot of what to come. I know Ive been slacking on posting for a bit, but my husband and I have been doing so much lately, that Ive been taking pictures to keep it all update but this has been the first chance I could write all my thoughts down.We have gone to The Plains in Virginia a hr in a half away to go pick out our pumpkins for this year did a corn mase, which Thank god my husband can Navigate cause my legs were killing me as well as me being hot. Didnt mix. But we had a blast there,  We have had Birthdays, First was my Bro in laws Birthday, Than my doggie my lil sweetheart turning 6 years old, which I made her a cookie bone cake for her Birthday got her gifts decorated and took tons of pics, Than came my birthday my husband surprised me and decorated for me Decked the kitchen area all in Little mermaid, I got a awesome yummy Ariel Cake and he gave me Roses, a cute funny card, and made me a framed print out of our Vows with our wedding pictures on it, came out so nice, and made tears come down my eyes, also took me to have lunch at Red Lobster and got me two gift cards One for Starbucks my Fav, and the other was to go shopping for baby stuff for our little girl. We pumpkin Craved for a good 3 hours all together, and watched scary movies and ghost story’s. Lmfao. Also I made her a little Card thing to put on her bed when she is born, I glammed out so it looks super cute, where they put the Name,Time she was born,Weight and length on, wanted it to be extra special for her to hold on to forever that I made. We have been spending a lot of good times together, its amazing, how much im in love with my husband, It really is. I’m so glad we are building a family and a good foundation together in life. So I bet your all thinking where are all these fun pictures lol, well give me a min to stop typing hehe and you all shall see how much fun we have been having. It has been hard not having my family there as much as they could of but Ive been trying to cope with that on my own but its just making me more stronger than weak anymore. I do have my moments were I sit and cry but Its not going to change anything, and I know that. =( But on a happier note. The next project we have in store is doing a Belly cast, which We should be doing this weekend, not showing pictures of the whole process since its kinda not for others eyes lol, But towards the end and the end results I will show ya all. Kinda wondering how I should decorate it, so im probley going to look for some ideas online, that’s my best bet. I got the belly cast for real cheap which was awesome and its brand new still in the box in all, The girl that gave it too me, had her baby early and by that time couldn’t use it, so I got it for 5 bucks, which is normally a good 30-40 bucks alone. I know my belly has grown a lot so wanted to do it right know, before she is born just to have all the memories from my first born as possible. Also we will be taking a new Class, Breastfeeding Basics and most probley Baby care basics still in the air with that one though, but we got to pick another class that added up to our other one we took that didn’t go as we thought it would, cause it was suppose to be geared towards a medicated birth and the instructor almost the whole time talked about not using drugs until the end for a short min, and everyone in the class wanted to go medicated.So accept getting a refund I decide to take another class I could get some basic knowledge on, since I will be breastfeeding for a year.

Also before I forgot I was going to tell you all that Hurricane Sandy, is in our path so its been raining really hard and windy, today it is suppose to get really bad, We are suppose to be having some bad flooding but I love this weather, plus good thing my husband has had some extra days off cause of it. Yay. Lmfao. My dog has been taking good to this storm which im glad of. She did shake a bit but only lasted 5 minutes guess she is getting use to the weather here =) Well enjoy the pictures everyone, and please leave comments if you like, you dont have to be a member to leave a comment it will just ask for your email and you can enter your name, Your name will pop up only not your email in the comment.
