{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….


{June 7, 2012}   Obgyn Visit Today

I went to the Ob today cause ive been feeling a little bit of stabbing pains down there This is been going off and on for a while know and I went before to the ob to get it checked out and like today , they say nothing is wrong. So curious what can be causing this. But besides that I got to hear the babys heartbeat on the doppler today and they found it right away, ohhh it felt so good knowning that the baby was doing good, cause i need to buy A new dopple cause mine at home is so old I think its useless know lol. Well anyways the babys heartbeat is higher than it was the last visit its know 159 BMP and I recorded it on my recorder but I cant post the sound on hear kinda suck, (((Oh never mind I got a idea come back to this post tomarrow and you can hear it, I got what I can do hehehhe….Baby and I are doing okay just for the usually pain the morning sickness has finally gone away yippy000)))…… Talk about happy. Well till tomarrow Goodnight everyone.

I was looking on all my groups I go on for pregnancy on facebook and there was this test a gender predicator test. And theres lots of women that this actually came out right and some not so its 50-50 chance right here, But with all the good reads on it, I decided to do it and get it. But omg hope this test is right that would be awesome shows im having a girl…its not 100 percent though so keep ur fingers crossed, LOL. We also have done the Chinese Calender to predict If im having a girl or boy and with from when I conceived to how old I will be when I have the baby which thats how that one works, that came out showing a girl also. Plus with my obgyn she promised me I would be pregnant within a year, and she was completly right. And this last ttime I went to see her, she had the doppler listening to the heartbeat and she said Christina I think your having a girl, Plus theres lots that thinks that its a girl, but only 4 people that thinks its a boy, my Husband of course and my mother in law, and sister in law and bro in law. And my mom did also. When we were talking who knows what she thinks or cares anymore, but Im hoping its a little girl than we have a boy next, but only god can tell, Even if it is a boy first I will fall in love, but all moms wish for that little girl first so you can dress up go do girl things with, and be close and share things with. We Are going to go do a 4D ultrasound in town in 2 weeks to find out cause I cant wait as long as the High risk doctor wants, and you can find out at 16 weeks, so We are going to pay to go get a 30 min 4D ultrasound plus and video of the baby and Pictures so we can see what the baby looks like right know, We are also going to go back closer to delivery to do it again so we can see how close the faces match when he /she is born. I keep waiting for that one kick but it hasnt happened yet, I did feel something a month ago that almost seemed like the baby moving But I cant be for sure, plus I was half way asleep and it woke me up from a dead sleep. Other than that Ive been eating healthy and sometimes a little not with my chinese and mexican cravings, but Im in love with fruit and been eating it like crasy and actually am down almost 3 bottles of water a day know way better than before. Im still having a hard time finding the heartbeat at home, hopefully I can soon…..How long did it take you all to hear the heartbeat at home, and how low where you looking for it????? Hope you all enjoy the blog sorry I havent been writing all the time, but I really want them to be nice when I have something to talk about…..Love you yall…

Found this and thought I would share it with all of you all, I Have finally hit my second trimister, what the best feeling in the world that my baby is doing well, as of right know im 13 weeks 2 days… Keep trying to find the baby’s heartbeat on my doppler I have at home but its still so faint its hard to pick up, my last appointment my doctor had found it in like 10 mins, but the nurse before her couldnt find it lol.Just hope the baby is loving it home for right know. Been through alot lately and just want this one thing to go right in my life, before I feel complete.. This opened my eyes and let me know to look past the drama in my life and love the baby I carry inside me and worry more about her than anything else right know….

It went pretty well, first got my blood pressure and weight taken and than went into the room, the nurse that had taken me in there was like pull down your pants a little so she can put the doppler on me and find the baby’s heartbeat, I guess the baby couldn’t stand her because she was being hard as hell putting presure on my stomach so she gave up and my hubby and me are waiting for the doctor to come in took a little time, guess they were really buzy today well, she came in saying congrats and was shaking both of our hands, she is such a sweet doctor she promised me I would get pregnant by this year and she was completly right…Well she tries with the doppler also and after 10 mins she finnally found it, it was really faded cause its still a little too soon to hear it one those dopplers, But I have reached 12 wks today One more week and I hit my Second Trimister, she told me im bypass the alarm rate of having a misscarriage those are always good words to hear.  Also we showed her a video of our last ultrasound so she can see the baby moving and she said she thinks its a girl, I was so excited, cause she was already right about one thing, and she has been doing this for years. But carlos is like your going to keep saying it and its going to be a boy lol…We will see soon Enough…And we were talking to her about some of my back problems in all, got to go to my neuro doctor and have him call her so they can figure out what I can be given and what I cant be given. Also last week we had gone to the High Risk doctor and they had done some tests For Down Syndrome, one was the measurements of the baby’s spine, nose canel, ect and also a needle prick on my finger to test for the gene in my blood. GOOD RESULTS TODAY !!!!!!!!!!! Im 1 in 10,000 of giving that to my child so most likely The baby will not have Down Syndrome at all, which is awesome, Nobody likes to hear that there might be something wrong with your child after birth. Well that and the baby’s heart rate is 143 its going down to its normal rate it will finally be at, so all we got to do is wait one more week and than I get to sign into the hospital System as a soon to be mom delivering in there unit, they have everyone sign up when they hit there 2nd trimister. As how im doing is so so, im having really bad back pain and leg pains to the point where its hard to bare sometimes, the nausea let up a little so thats good so every once in a while that happens, I have low blood presure so I have to eat alot of salt, thats why ive been so dizzy. And I still have endo pains,so that hasnt gone away at all yet. But other than that the baby is doing great, and im really happy about that my angel is still doing good.  Thank you all for your support through this all, without you Im not sure I could handle Going through this, Your upbeat comments are the best and always keep my mood happy.
