Its Official I am NUTS !!

Thought I would give you an update on me and the baby.

Baby is great!       I am officially CRAZY!        Call in the strait jackets and come and get me!

Because this is what I do lately…..

·         I forget things.
·         I remember things I should forget.
·         I tell my husband to slice up all the computers for dinner, instead of saying eggplants… (Yeah... because those two words are soooo similar)!! NOT
·         I tip over and sway for no reason at all.
·         I drop and break things…often.
·         I panic and cry over many really weird things.
·         I worry and have bad dreams about hail, tornados and the world coming to an end.
·         I think about getting more unattractive every day.
·         I spend at least 15-30 mins a day investigating the blotchy discoloration brown spots, my resent chest/face acne, and strange new hairs all over my body.
·         I accuse my husband of plotting against me.
·         I worry that I will never be myself again.
·         I start something and don’t finish it….at least 4 times a day.
·         I ignore my household chores, and then complain I am too busy.
·         I feel insecure and overwhelmed by all the things I have ignored.
·         I weigh myself every day, and freak out with each new pound.
·         I think my husband’s laugh at times sounds slightly like Satan’s, and yes, I would know what Satan’s laugh sounds like!
·         I cry about being completely dependent on my husband and needing him too much.
·         I worry he will leave me once I am huge and vulnerable.
·         I think I have become the most intolerable person ever, and would understand if he did leave me, then I cry harder.

So ladies….tell me. Am I certifiably crazy…and yes, I already know that I was crazy, but I am bringing this sh*t to a whole new level.

Grammy,Grampy and Jess visit us in Puerto Rico !!

Posted by Picasa

My inlaws came to visit us this past week and it was soooo nice to have them here. They are amazing people and we all have a lot of fun together. My father in law has to have dialysis and he had enough courage to come to Puerto Rico and have it done here. It was so very cool that he would do that for us. When they came they brought the baby a ton of new cute outfits....we loved them all . here are some of our favorites :)

Thanks Grammy and Grampy !!

To Thine Own Self Be True

this is me floating on happiness for you babygirl.

Today I kissed the universe; no actually I think I made out with it a little.

I have a healthy baby girl, we have, we created, we made, wee wee wee all the way home.  Yes, I get to say we, it’s still amazes me that I am married. Sometimes I look at Mike and say to him “We are Married! “It’s still crazy to me that we made this happen and that we are completely and utterly still in love. Cheesy, yes a little, but so real. Now, the new thing that I look at him in disbelief and say ..."We are having a baby!” yes this baby has been pined for and planned for several years. But, sometimes it’s still like I am having an out of body experience when i look down at my belly and think, OMG, I am really pregnant and married. Wait...reverse that order  :) LOL ....we are married then pregnant.

We have a daughter on the way. Let me say that again because its sounds so weird to not only write but saying out loud, Mike and I have a daughter on the way. This little miracle, this little hope in my belly is absolutely perfect. Yes, it’s true, we got the second CVS test back and we are “normal”. It’s the first time ever I was happy with being called normal. I will take normal any day. I cried for normal, prayed actually. When I got the dreaded but anticipated phone call on Thursday, I was nervous. I wanted to know and hear what ever women wants to hear, that my baby doesn’t have Trisomy 18 , and that I did beat the odds they gave me 3 weeks ago which was my baby had a 1 in 14 chance of having Trisomy 18.  After, waiting 23 minutes on hold, the longest hold we ever had, the doctor gave us the good news. Along with that good news, we also got to find out that our little wonder was in fact a SHE!!

I saw my baby in the ultra sounds, I saw her moving, sticking her cute little tongue out, sucking her thumb, kicking and moving around. I wanted to say with confidence that I knew. In my heart of hearts, I knew that my baby was okay. But, the test said otherwise, and I didn’t want to have the arrogance of faith. But, I know my baby is perfect and FINE! But, numbers don’t lie, right? Doctor knows best? Right?

That is daddy on the left me on the right. We love you so much babygirl!

It was a tough 10 days but we made it, and we are fine. Our fingers were crossed and baby is completely fine. ~~~whew.
Now I can breathe. Now I can relax and enjoy the rest of my pregnancy and this baby girl inside me.

    14 Week Update

    How Far Along Week : 14 weeks

    Maternity Clothes: Yeah, i am still in my regular clothes
    Symptoms: Morning sickness is gone but I have heartburn, headaches, juicy slobbery mouth and insomnia....Saaaweeet! 

    Sleep: Because of the stressful week I had , I am now going to bed early and getting up early. But, I have to force myself to bed, or shall I say Papa forces me to bed. We turn off the TV, no computer, light a relaxation candle and both hit the sack. We talk of life, baby issues, family and friends....I love these moments with him. I adore them.
    Best Moment of the Week: Only going to one Dr. apt this week…and of course seeing that Baby Montgomery is still doing great.

    Movement: Mover and a shaker, I do feel flutters in my belly...

    Food cravings: fresh fruit, campbells soup, ravoli and all things that are very plain. plain chicken, plain potatoes (no butter or cream) plain steamed veggies....I went from beign the queen of spice to the a wallflower in the kitchen.
    What I Miss: sushi, deli sandwichs, hotdogs and martini's

    What I'm Looking Forward To: getting our CVS results back.

    Weekly Wisdom: Enjoy every moment of your pregnancy even if at times it makes you completely miserable…Be thankful that you are luck enough to have this miracle inside of you.

    Milestones: Making it one week further along

    Emotions: I am in worry mode, worrying about every little thing that I cant control. I am also super sentimental, hugging and loving all over my husband, family and friends.

    Sympathy Pregnancy....and the Boppy Pillow Story.

    When we were home for Christmas my cousin Chris bought his wife Melissa  who is also pregnant this Boppy body pillow, she wasnt that happy over it but now she swears that its one of the best gifts she has gotten from Chris, in regard to the baby. He is a great husband like mine , thinking ahead when we cant and getting us girls the neccessities for our pregnancy.

    Mike of course, followed in Chris's footsteps and had to get me one also.  I love it and when I am able to use it  ...I truely do sleep so well with it.

    Here is a picture of what it looks like Boppy Body Pillow

    I thought I would show you how much I have gotten to use it since he bought it for me a couple weeks ago.

    So Happy that I got the famous Boppy Pillow , one day I will get to use it ! LOL....

    Countdown clock

    Lately I feel like I am in a countdown, my little house thats been on the market finally sold, and as much as I needed it too and wanted it to. I still mourn it. Its a change and change that I may or may not want to make but need to make. sigh.

    lately, thats what I do lately, I make room for changes. Changes in me, changes in my body, changes in my relationships, changes in my thinking. changes changes changes.

    I wonder how when I watch the news and here about parents leaving their children in the dumpster or when I see the actions of some parents, I think "how"? . I am so already in love with this baby inside me that I could never imagine treating her badly. Ignoring her.

    You begin to see the difference between people who are mothers and those who are not. If you are a mother there are things you would just never do to a child, especially your own. I know this sounds judgemental, its not meant to be its just that I have changed inside forever.
