38 weeks!

We are soo close to meeting baby M! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy went by! 

I'm 38 weeks! And feeling pretty good! Minus the normal aches and pains and swelling ha! I'm doing alright!

Today little k and I had a busy day! 

It began with a starbucks date! 

Latte for me and cake pop for the little! 

We had a nice coffee date before heading to the OB!

We heard the baby's heartbeat and doctor is happy with the growth, but still decided to do an ultrasound just to check up since I was a little concerned about movement. 

We then headed home for lunch.

We are practicing with the yumbox as much as we can! School begins in Sept! 

Little man has no problem getting to his lunch! He doesn't need any help at all. Now im just trying different foods and making a list of options! What to put in the yumbox is the fun part haha! 

After lunch we played a bit then headed to the ultrasound appointment! 

Little k fell asleep in the car. Good thing I had the stroller! I put him in the stroller and had the ultrasound done as he slept! Ha! 

The tech said littleM looks about 6lbs, fluid is good, movement good. All looks good! So we patiently wait until he is ready to meet us!!!! 

When little k woke he was asking to see baby m on the tv. Haha little did he know that he slept through the whole thing! 

We then waited for daddy to get home from work to have a family night out. Dinner and icecream!!! These days before baby M!!!

Feeling some Braxton hicks tonight!!! Any day now baby M!!!

38 weeks pregnant

This week!
How Far Along: 38 weeks!
Size of baby: 6.8 pounds (as per iphone app)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gain 38lbs
Maternity Clothes: Maternity tights have been my favorite!
Cravings: chocolate anything thanks ;)
Symptoms: joint pain, pressure as baby's head gets in position, back pain, fatigue, emotional, over thinking things. Feeling a little bit nervous about being a mom. Nervous about the things in life I can't control....
What I'm looking forward to? meeting my little boy for the first time.

The OB keeps saying that the baby will be early... let's just wait and see. Many
friends and family members are betting on this weekend... watch this little
one take us by surprise and arrive late ha!

I do feel my body changing,  like its preparing... but no real contractions yet
but then again I don't know what that feels like... I'm assuming
I will know when it happens because it with equal "pain" right?


I choose to get the epidural for delivery...

Now I know to be prepared for anything and everything that
can possibly happen during delivery. I've heard enough stories ha!

Mama's any delivery advice for this first time mom?

The weeks and years just fly by

Today 9 years ago my dad passed away. I can't remember if I ever went into detail about his passing here on my blog. But it's one of those things, that some days I can talk openly about it and other days I just rather not get too deep into it because I don't want to feel so sad bringing up the past. My sister said it perfectly on her Facebook status today...
You know your an amazing father when after 9yrs your kids still look to you for advice, and even though you can't answer.. They know exactly what you would say. You were an amazing man, and you taught us a ton of life lessons that most don't ever learn. We are strong because of you. Missing you always.. R.I.P Daddy. 9yrs today.

So today as I do every year I went to the cemetery. It's always so calming there and it's the one place I can be so honest and true in expressing my feelings without any judgement. And my dad was just that person, he never judged people.

I can hardly believe that it's been 9 years already! (I bought that chair for us to sit on when we visit, 9 years ago!)

This week I'm almost 38 weeks pregnant. We decided to put a middle name for baby K that is similar to my dad's name, we went back and forth on it and every time I went to the cemetery this year I felt that it was the perfect thing to do.

Today I also had an OB appt. OB said my cervix was soft and baby's head is in position which are all great signs for my first baby. She thinks he will be early. So let's see!!

It's a beautiful fall day here. Hope you all are having a great day.

Ok, so I wrote the above this morning and saved it.  The rest of the afternoon went by and I started to feel pain in my pelvic area and a sick feeling like weak and a big headache.

So I came straight home to lay down.  Right now I can barely walk!
