It’s A Boy!

22 Jul


WOOO! We are having a BABY BOY! As you can guess my HUSBO is a very excited guy! We found out Thursday the 18th one day before 20 weeks, half way done! The ultrasound tech said he was very cooperative, she saw everything she needed to see.  Then she said “It’s definitely a boy!” and HUSBO whispered quite loudly “YES!” then as she continued she said “and what a boy!” lol geeze…  He was also very very VERY active! He was kicking, waving his arms, and being wild! She asked if I felt any of it and I couldn’t which was crazy, he looked as if he was fighting his way out. I have felt baby move since 17 weeks, and I was shocked I wasn’t feeling anything as crazy as he was moving. Oh well! Anyways, he was perfect and it was a great visit! Healthy Mama & Baby!

So my HUSBO and I have been back and forward on boy names… He wanted at first to name him after his father. But because his Dad’s name is Patrick, HUSBO’s name is Patrick and my brothers name is Patrick, I said enough Patrick’s! So then we decided on naming a baby boy after both our fathers, my Dad’s first name and HUSBO’s Dad’s middle name. He is still not very thrilled but dealt with the compromise, because he hated every other name I threw at him. THEN he told me a few days ago he instead would love the baby to be named after him, Patrick John. I asked him if I considered the name, could we just call him John since we have so many Pat’s in our family, he said cool. But so far, I have been turning the name down left and right, and keeping the baby named after our fathers to screw with him. While HUSBO is out of town with work, I have decided to surprise him. I have decided to give him his wish, and name our son Patrick John! Today I ordered a onesie 49ers “jersey” and on it with the number 16 (his fav football players number) with PATRICK across the back. When he comes home I will have the jersey for him to see his son’s real name. I am very excited!

That’s about it… What a blessing! Just wanted to share the news!

Happy July 3rd! Again, long time no post, but I have a decent excuse this time around.

We have been spending our time moving out of our apartment into a house! YAY! We are so excited to finally be in a house and to not hear our annoying neighbors below us screaming and yelling at each other or their poor children 24/7. We have our own space, a backyard, a room for the baby plus a room for a playroom, and a basement. We couldn’t be happier. A special thank you goes out to my wonderful family for helping us clear out this house and move in. I LOVE THIS HOUSE!  It’s a start, but its perfect for us, especially  for the next few years. My cat seems to enjoy this place too. I have never seen him so well behaved, lol its weird. It’s weird, but you can definitely feel the love in  this house, so many wonderful people have lived and grown up in this house, it’s comforting.

I am now 17 weeks and 5 days  pregnant, so far pregnancy has been good to me. (knock on wood) Also when in the hell did this bump show up!? The second night in our house HUSBO and I noticed my belly was noticeably bigger. It popped up out of nowhere, it was amazing! It is obvious now that I am pregnant instead of chunky, lol YAY! It is also hard to get comfortable at night when it’s bedtime… yikes! It’ll only get worse from here on out. Everything will get worse I know but damn…! I am trying to keep the complaints to a minimum because like I said, pregnancy has been so good to me so far. My last doctor appointment was good, even though I lost 2lbs… :\ they said it was ok and that baby and I are perfectly healthy.

IMAG0562My cat Amos has noticed too… lol Hopefully I can take a better picture to show it off, it is crazy! I love my little bump!

Speaking of moving, I am 95% positive that I have finally felt my baby move for the very first time! I was laying on the couch watching tv, nothing going on, the tv wasn’t super loud, I was half trying to nap when all of a sudden I felt a little something in my lower belly. It was almost like a fluttering but more like a jiggly feeling on the inside. I even kept a tally of how many times I felt something (17 times from 2:31pm-3:26pm). I am almost positive it was baby movement, it was a feeling I have never experienced before, my Ma says that is the feeling too. So I’m hoping so! I am just waiting for the feeling to happen again so I can be positive it was baby! YAY! I have been asking (ok, demanding lol) that baby move for the last two weeks! I love it, so keep on happening! I am trying to schedule an ultrasound at my next doctor visit to find out the gender. HUSBO will be out of town for 3 weeks and a few days after he comes home I will be in Florida, we want to be together when we find out so I am doing everything I can to figure this out. I called the office and they said they like to do ultrasounds at 20 weeks, which I understand but my next visit I will be 19 weeks and a few days, close enough right? They said they will call me back to let me know if it’s do-able or not. SO fingers crossed!

We celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary June 22nd. Our first wedding anniversary together (he was overseas last year), so that was extra special. We went out to a little festival at a church in town that always has awesome food, a beer garden (we didn’t do that obviously lol), games, and music. This year they had an amazing band there and we played BINGO, HUSBO won a whopping $13 haha. The band played so many oldies and funky music, it was SO great! They played The Temptations “Just My Imagination” and HUSBO danced with me 😉 super sweet, made me so happy! Afterwards we went to my HUSBO’s (other) work and hung out for a bit, I got to see some friends that I wouldn’t see normally, so it was fun! The next day HUSBO took me to the Zoo and we had a blast, got a little sun too! It was a great weekend, I love my guy!

In other news, I am going to Walt Disney World in August with my parents! HUSBO cannot go because of work (booo!) but he is more than happy to send me on my way and have the house to himself for the week. This will be my last hurrah before the baby is born, I could not be more excited! I will be 6 months pregnant when we go, so this will be interesting and baby’s “first trip to WDW” haha, fun! I cannot wait to buy baby stuff from there along with a few items for my baby shower. This will be an unforgettable trip!

Nothing more to report at the moment. Hopefully there will not be too much time in between this and the next post. Everyone have a safe and fun 4th of July!

Hiya Hey!

23 May

Hello! Nothing exciting to report… still busy being pregnant, haha. Tomorrow I will be 12 weeks, that is pretty exciting! Next month will be a busy one that is for sure, my HUSBO will be on Orders from the Army for a few months, which is pretty cool. We are also moving out of this apartment and into a house! We are so happy and cannot wait, this is going to be a great summer!

Last night I ordered my first baby book, “The Belly Book.” It is like a journal for the nine months you are with baby, you can write moments and post pictures inside, it even has questions all ready for answering! I cannot wait to get this book! My HUSBO also picked out two humorous and informative “Dad-To-Be” books. So this should be an exciting purchase! Lately I have been reading the books my Dr. has given me and my phone apps on what’s happening with Baby George, how he’s growing and what’s happening inside my body. I am almost in my second trimester, they say the morning sickness should die down. I sure hope so! I was golden the first part of the first trimester, now that its coming to an end the last two weeks I have been getting sick every night… So yay… 😐  I have tried Preggie Pop Drops, I am not a fan of the sour raspberry or green apple (lol). I think they help? I’m not sure how they work or if it is just a mind trick kind of deal, but I enjoy the hard candies. Also sometimes just a hard peppermint candy or a sucker works too. Monday (May 20th) I had another Dr. appointment, took a urine test, she told me my lab results came back good, and put a trans abdominal ultrasound on my belly so we could hear the heartbeat again. Exciting stuff! Even though it took her a bit ti find it, we were freaking a little, it was amazing.

Also it is very rough trying to not drink so much pop! I don’t drink a lot of pop anyways, one a day, two at the most. I drink a lot of water, but I have been loving my Barq’s Root Beer so far in this pregnancy. Like more than usual… I haven’t had one in three days, which I was pretty proud of. Then HUSBO reminded me when we went out to lunch yesterday I had a pop… Poop… Oh well! I have been drinking Fruit Punch (Crystal Light) and water. I explained this problem to my Dr. and she suggested I try Sassafras Tea? She says it tastes just like root beer and its good for me. I am not a fan of tea, but I’ll try it. Anyone else ever try Sassafras tea?

Quick Random: I love looking at my phone apps and seeing how big the baby is that week, based on a fruit or vegetable! Super cool!

Recently I got rid of my Twitter account, on account of a few girls I dislike who pretend like they don’t read my things or that they don’t make rude or horrible comments about or “not exactly” to me. Ridiculous business that I just do not want to deal with anymore. Especially when I say something about someone and they think I am talking to or about them, and it isn’t. It especially stinks when I stopped reading their things myself and their own family members show me the mean things they say about me. Haha, nice family, I especially like when they tell me “oh you know how she is… miserable.” Whoa. Also how one says things about me being pregnant and how I know nothing about what’s happening with my body. Uh… NO. Don’t act like you know how I go about my pregnancy or business. An example: I say how my belly is almost perfectly round and that my HUSBO said one day I looked pregnant. No where did I state I was showing already. Obviously, as this is my first child I won’t be showing for a few more weeks now. I know this info because I do my research. But they had a lot of mean things to say about how I am dumb, I won’t be showing until my second trimester (I know it takes time, duh. BUT it also is very noticeable I do not fit in my old clothes, my belly sticks out and that my boobs have already grown a cup size!), I’m going to be the worlds dumbest Mom or that I act like I’m the first women in history to give birth. Again… NO. ANYWAYS… needless drama that doesn’t need to be around me. I am striving for a happy, positive, stress free life. I am working on such things and have been for over a year. I feel like they keep sucking me in and bringing me down. I am not friends with these girls, so why keep being interested in the things they say about my? Which I hadn’t been for over a year until recently. Knock it off Jessica! Stay positive, move on, and do not be brought down to their level! Ugh… that whole rant was horrible and contradicting myself, huh? Ugh… I am and always will be a work in progress! It’s just been annoying and upsetting, sorry.

This week I have had pretty much every day off. My Grandmother had to go to the hospital as she wasn’t feeling well. My Tia has been calling off every day to be with her and we believe she is going home tomorrow. She had a bleeding ulcer, had a blood transfusion but is doing well. She has also been pretty mean  to my Tia and my Ma, lol, expected. So at least they got a few laughs in I suppose. I worked Monday, and I guess I might be back with Gma Friday afternoon, we’ll see! Then there is a three day weekend, WOOO! Happy Pre-Memorial Day! How will you celebrate? This is my HUSBO’s first Memorial Day since he’s been home, he should be ok, but I am always there to help him through whatever he needs. I hope the weather is at least nice… It’s been 80’s all week, then it storms and it’s almost 50 degrees today. It’s almost June COME ON! I am in need of some sunshine! Or a trip to Disney World… haha. (What’s new?)

Well… I think that is all the update I have for now. If I feel the need to complain some more I will. Enjoy!
