Happy New Year 2014!

31 December 2013

It's almost 5pm on New Years Eve. I'm looking forward to midnight because it will be the start of a new year. I plan to make 2014 a great year! My Husband has duty tonight but we will spend New Years Day together. We are also expecting our first baby boy to arrive any day now. It would be cool if he were to come on New Years Day but i'm sure that's not going to happen. lol

I'm not into making new years resolutions anymore. I strive to achieve my goals daily. There's always something new that I want to work on to make me a better woman, wife, mother, sister, daughter, neice, granddaughter and friend!


35 Weeks

29 December 2013

I had my prenatal check up this week. I will start going weekly now so the next appointment is next week. My appointment went good. I had a few questions about the delivery process and that was about it.

I've been feeling some pain and numbness in my leg, feet and hands these last few days. I will address this at my next appointment.

Week 35 is passing and I'm doing my count down!

34 Weeks

20 December 2013

As of now, sleeping is a thing of the past. I've been woke more then i'm sleep. I always hear most pregnant women say that they sleep a lot and are always tired. I'm the opposite. I'm wide awake at night and I'm not even tired. Maybe it's because I'm ready for the baby to get here and i'm so excited that I'm not able to sleep?? I hope this is the reason!

I had a craving for fried fish last night. I haven't really been into eating fried foods lately so this was something new for me. Once I had the plate in front of me I could only eat one piece. I guess my cravings aren't as intense as I thought they would be. I'm still eating sweets often. I shouldn't but they are my favorite thing to eat.

I'm still feeling pressure down below. It makes walking difficult and sometimes painful. Especially If I have to pee. Once I feel the urge and stand up to head to the bathroom, my legs go into over drive and start to hurt and I have to walk slow. It still feels like I've been saddled on a horse all day.

I have my next prenatal appointment next week.

33 Weeks

15 December 2013

I had my prenatal appointment this week. The baby is healthy and he weights 4lbs 3oz. My belly is measuring 33 inches. Which means I'm right on time.

I have been feeling pressure in the pelvic area. The doctor did an exam and said the baby is still high up. The pressure is just the weight of the baby and all the extra fluids in my body. It's very uncomfortable. Sometimes it hurts to walk.

I haven't been able to get much sleep this week. I've been in bed with the lights and the tv off for hours and my body just refuses to relax and fall asleep. I'm not able to take naps during the day either. One things for sure, I'm in bed resting most of the day, just can't get any sleep. The doctor said for me to drink lots of water and get lots of rest these next few weeks.

We took Maternity/Christmas pictures this yesterday. I wasn't able to wear my wedding ring because my hands swell a lot. I took the ring off about two weeks ago. I was taking it off while at home and wearing it when I leave the house but eventually it started to be too tight for me to wear at all.

Here are the pictures from our photo shoot this week!

32 Weeks

I went to the Doctor and had an ultrasound this week. When I got there I told them about my abscess from Last Thursday and they decided to check me out just to make sure I didn't have any infections or anything. I was cleared.

The baby is growing and he's healthy! He's weighing about 4 pounds 3 ounces. He's pretty much fully developed. His lungs will need a few more weeks before they are fully developed. My placenta is still in the same place so I'm still diagnosed with Placenta Previa. I will go back for my next ultrasound at 37 weeks.

I'm still feeling a lot of pressure and discomfort in my pelvic area. I've noticed that my stomach looks like it has already started to drop. His head is down there and that's what the pressure is that I'm feeling.

This week my throat has been burning a lot at night. I try not to eat anything after 9pm, but I will still start burping and my throat will start burning around midnight. One night this week, I was up till 5am because of this!

We went to my Husbands Command Christmas Party. It was hard to find a maternity dress so I just wore pants with a nice blouse. I made sure that we sat in the back so I could be as close as I could to the restroom. Even If I have nothing to drink, I still have to pee as if I've had a full glass of water. lol. Within three hours I think I went to the restroom about 4 times.

We also attended a car seat safety class this week. It was offered through the WIC program. It took about 15 minutes but we actually learned a lot. Especially with us being new parents and all. We didn't know much about how to install a car seat or how to make sure the baby using the right seat the right way.

I had a doctors appointment this week with my primary care doctor because I needed to get a referral to the dermatologist. Not sure If they will be able to really treat me while I'm pregnant but my face has been really itchy and dry lately. I'm hoping it's just pregnancy related. The doctor also gave me some stool softeners to help me have a "smooth" transition in the restroom. lol

I went to see my prenatal doctor this week. My belly registered a little over 32 inches. The doctor said it was normal as long as I register within two inches of where I'm suppose to be.

On Thanksgiving morning I had two bumps that were hard and painful so I decided to go to the E.R. just so they could give me some antibiotics for the bumps. Turns out they were Abscess and they needed to cut them open and drain them. They numbed the area and it took all of two minutes to cut and drain them. They gave me a prescription for antibiotics to clear up any infection that could have been caused by the Abscess. The pain was still there for a few days afterwards.

I've also been feeling some pressure in my pelvic area. It almost hurts to walk at times. It's not a constant pain. It comes and goes during the day. I've noticed that sometimes I get the dizzy effect without being dizzy. I will see small burst of light, like when you see stars then you faint. This has happen a few times this week. I will tell my doctor at my next appointment.

I received a few more gifts from my baby registry this week! Me and Baby Mills love gifts.
