24w2d Belly Pic

I took a couple of belly shots last night. Now, does my belly really look like a basketball? I have noticed that my belly is starting to shape more round and a little pointy at the bottom. Last night hubby was tripping out because baby Cee was moving and you could see my belly bounce side to side. It was fun to watch. :)

Here's also the pic of the onesie I bought for baby Cee over the weekend. Isn't it cute? I love it! It says Party in my crib B.Y.O.B.

24 Weeks

I turned 24w on Sat. I can't believe that this pregnancy is going so fast. This is what baby Cee looks like in my womb. I'm not sure if this is the exact position the baby is in, but if it is, then this explains why I get kicked so much on my cervix. This baby is having a ball doing it. Baby Cee has been moving so much these last few days. Hubby finally got to feel the baby kick and punch a few times. It was quite funny seeing his face expression. His eyes almost popped out of his sockets, but it was cute to see that.
This past weekend I did my first baby purchase. I bought a really cute and funny onesie and an outfit. Everyone loved the onesie. (I will post a pic of it tomorrow or later this week) It was a really nice feeling to browse around and picking out somethings. Daughter was with me and she just kept telling me to just buy blue. She really thinks that baby Cee is a boy. Last night she had me stand up and she felt my belly and stared at it and said "Yup, your belly is starting to look like a basketball, so that means you're having a boy mommy". How cute was that? She's my little miss know it all.

P.S. How do you like the new look? The colors of the dots are similar colors to our wedding scheme.

I Passed!!

Yes! I passed my glucose fasting last Friday. I'm so happy! I have to take another test in March to make sure my levels are low. The standard range is 70-99 and I got 75. I'm also gaining weight, finally. I had lost 4 lbs at the beginning and now I'm up + 1. My midwife said I should only be gaining 1 1/2 -2 lbs a month.
As for baby, he/she has a good strong heartbeat and sounds good and my blood pressure is looking good too. Since I had preeclampsia with daughter she's keeping a close eye on me. Other than that I'm feeling pretty good, except for my sciatica. This has been hurting so bad that sometimes it's getting a little hard to deal with. My midwife offered some acupuncture treatments as part of my prenatal care, but I don't know. I've heard good things, but I'm scared. If it gets too bad then I might have to consider some treatments. Anyways, we'll see how it goes.

As for our move, we're finished. Moving sucks ass and to think that we will be doing this again at the end of the year. It's weird. I hear so much more at my in-law's house than I did at my old place. I was away from the busy streets and here I'm above a major busy street. Everything echos up and then I hear the shots from the police academy that's a little further up where I'm at. I think once I get use to the area I'll be o.k. and I'll get to sleep a little better.

Moving & Almost 22 Weeks.

I cant' believe that I'm almost 22 weeks this Sat. Time as really flown by so quickly! Before I know it I will be holding our baby boy or girl. Hubby is getting really excited because now he can say that his baby is almost here. He's so super happy. I love watching him talk to my belly and sing the ABCs to the baby. Daughter is starting to talk to my belly and kissing it galore. She tells the baby that she loves him or her. She is really hoping for another brother.

As far as baby stuff we haven't even consider what theme we want for the baby. I'm on the safari theme bandwagon. I just love how it looks. I think we will determine all that once we move. We are in the process of moving into my in-laws until Oct or Nov. There's nobody living there because the in-laws went back to Italy for a long while. They been gone since May and won't (maybe) be returning sometime until the end of this year. Since we really don't have room for the baby where we are now, we thought this would be good for us to move in and stash some money away. The siblings and the in-laws agreed and they're all good with it. So, we are suppose to be completely moved out by next Thurs. I'm taking Thurs. & Fri off to do last minute stuff and do my final walk through. I'm kind of sad to leave because this place was our first apt. together also the place where hubby proposed to me. Aside of the good memories we had there and the good times we had with our neighbors who became really good friends, I really won't be missing anything. Daughter will miss the pool. She learned how to swim in the pool and always looks forward to the summer. Son is looking forward to the move. Only because there is a pro skater who is well known living in the apt complex that the in-laws own next to the house.

I'm hoping with this opportunity we will buy our first house soon after the baby is born. I'm really hoping. So here's to a new year and a fresh start.
