Part 2

I broke it into 2 parts... this is my survey...

How far along? 31 weeks, 1 day...moving along quickly =)

Total weight gain/loss: Last Thursday, I had an appointment, and if the scale is right, I have gained, yet another pound. Still not worried, it's just hitting me that I am. I mean I am not too worried because the doctor isn't. I have a growing baby in me <3

Maternity clothes? I cannot stress enough how much I love the shorts. Thankfully, I still fit in my shirts [that's still the same response]. In regards to the bra situation, I went to Wal*Mart and bought 3 spaghetti strap sports bras and man have they done wonders on me, especially at work!

Stretch marks? Sadly, I have notcied some new ones coming in... I had some before so I am not too disappointed, but omg eeeeek! LOL they're small and low and worth it!

Sleep: It's been good. Thankfully, like I said before, he doesn't wake me up with his kicking [such a considerate baby boy]. I have been waking up to pee more and more.

Best moment this week: Going to give you 2... Last week I asked Will to put his head on my belly and tell me if he can hear the heartbeat. He put his head above my belly button and I told him he needed to go near my belly button [because that's where I can usually feel the little beats]...he moves and BAM! Gets kicked/punched! It was too cute and funny! On Sunday, I don't know if I was awake or not, but I turned and felt him moving and started laughing. It was 6 in the morning and I thought I was going to be up early ON MY DAY OFF! I felt bad, but woke Will up [because it was funny] and told him his son was moving... He turned, put his arm around me and was moving his fingers, every time he moved, Jaedyn moved...Will couldn't help but giggle. It was funny. I am loving more and more that Will can feel him move. Makes me light up inside. Ok Ok, Three! I had my 3d/4d ultrasound on Thursday and seeing him was great too...no it was AMAZING!

Movement: He's kicking now. LOL. I have a little mover in me, I shutter to think what he will be like outside of me!

Food cravings: Still not craving craving anything, but I must say I want meat loaf!

Gender: Boy! <3

Labor Signs: Not quite yet. I did have a scare today [part 1] is well...Hopefully, the next time I visit Labor and Delivery, it will be when I am IN labor.

Belly Button in or out? In [same]

Wedding rings on or off? No wedding ring, but my Promise Ring still fits. [same...I hope it stays!]

What I miss: My legs. They've been hurting me so bad. I am keeping them up as much as I can to avoid swelling. So far so good. But being on my feet 8 hours takes a toll...

What I am looking forward to: My baby shower on the 5th of November <3

Milestones: Hitting 31 weeks. I cannot believe next week I will be 32 weeks [8 months!] <3

Part 1

Geez, looking back I see I haven't posted in almost 3 weeks. Sorry. I would say I was busy, but I wasn't, ok I was busy being tired I guess. I would've posted with excitement the following week of the last post, but I guess you could say I caught a case of "pregnancy brain" because I confused the dates of the appointment and reschedule to last Tuesday [the 11th], but even that got messed up [not my fault this time, it was their's]...It was moved to Thursday [the 13th]. Trust me I wanted to post then because I became even more excited that I was having a baby, but then Friday came and I hung out with Krischna and Kaylyn, who surprised me with a bag of loot for Jaedyn <3

Here's some pics from the ultrasound:

I am so in LOVE! We say he has Will's nose and Candice thinks he has my lips. We shall see when the big day comes.

Like I mentioned, Friday after work, I hung out with Krishna and Kaylyn. We had lunch/dinner at Panda <3 Went back to her place and just hung out. She gave me a bag full of goodies! I was thinking the bag was stuff from her sis in law, who had a baby boy in July. It wasn't. There were new born onesies, 2 sets of new born outfits, 3 month white onesies, hangers, burp cloths, receiving blankets, mittens, socks, and wash cloths! Jaedyn came up! My favorite was this one:

Seriously, THE cutest!

After hanging up these clothes, I felt everything would be ok. No matter how bad our situation is, which I feel isn't, we are going to be fine because people love him!

I feel like I was being tested after that because yesterday my car crapped out on me. It starts, just won't move. Everyone is saying it's the transmission, and if it is, well I am screwed. Sort of, there's options but those don't come into play until later. But after yesterday I kept beating myself up over it because I just told myself no matter what happens, until he gets here, everything is going to be alright. IT IS, IT IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT!

Today proved it to me too... I had a scare at work. I was carrying a tray and ran into the wall! I jerked back and a pain went straight through me. Best believe I panicked! I hurried to the bathroom to see if I was bleeding. I wasn't but I was sure hurting! I called the hospital, they said come in ASAP. Will came and got me and took me and they hooked me to a monitor. Monitored him for a little over an hour. No contractions! He was moving around A LOT, you should've seen Will's face as we were listening. I have been reassured, EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK! I was taken off the rest of the work day and can return tomorrow. I gave myself a good jolt. Baby has plenty of support, mommy didn't. I am a little sore, but I'm fine <3
