Guess what i bought :)

oh my heck. so for some LONG months i have been browsing around the blog world to enter into what seems like a BILLION give-a-ways to win the Silhouette Cutter that you can find HERE and i haven't won one yet... it sucks.. during black friday i am sure i went to at least 25 different blogs... poor me i know! AND i asked for it for christmas but it was way way way to much money... well my honey was sweet enough to let me get it now! It is on sale for $175....... the cheapest its been forever! so if you decide you want one, go to the checkout, and put in a code, i bet you could find different codes from different blogs but the one i used was TATER. and it will put the discount and everything for you.. i am SOOOOOOOO EXCITED to get started using it... from vinyl, to scrapbooking..... to heat transfer for my little guy's onsies! oh i am not going to be bored now!!!!

Brady is so sweet and knew i really really wanted it...... lets hope now i can figure out how to use the thing! haha! it shouldnt be too hard......... so be watching for my (want to be) craftiness to start coming out more often!!

29 weeks & getting ready (showers.ect)

So this weekend i realized i am only 11 weeks away from this little guy entering the world... I have known it was real, but for some reason it felt really REAL this weekend... as i lay there i was making a list in my head of things we needed, didnt need, had, didnt have... and i started getting kinda scared.. i know and realize that if i end up not having something its not the end of the world.... and i could do without.. but what if i dont make a good mom, or don't know why the baby is crying, or can't get him to stop crying... I know, i bet all first time mom's go through this.. but i'm just getting worried that i'm not going to be all that i can be.... But my cousin Emi said something to me one day and it has actually helped alot. She said to put all the WHAT IF'S in the closet and shut the door.. so thats what i'm trying to do.

We went to our family christmas party yesterday at my Aunts. we did the whole dinner, and santa. I got kinda emotional when Santa asked me and Brady what we wanted for christmas and he blurted out "a healthy baby" how cute is that, and it was him that thought of it.. not me. i was thinking a vacation, toys, and ya know.. normal christmas stuff.. i realize now that sometimes people dont get the husbands enough credit. they tell me it wont be real to him until he hold the little guy.. but all in all he is very involved and i know that he is just as excited (and probably scared) as i am..... that little comment made my whole season! My Brady has been wonderful through this all! he has helped out a lot, and made me comfortable and stable throughout the whole thing! he hasn't missed one dr. appointment, and compliments me on a daily basis.

but thinking about how close it is coming..... i am getting ready to have my baby shower, and didnt want to leave anyone out that was wanting to come.. my mind is kinda scattered so i thought i'd ask on here if you want to come if i can get your address :) thanks, and i know its not the most formal way to ask!

i hope everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS this week!!!! i can't wait to see what everyone gets.. i hope santa visits each of you!

week 25, 26, & 27

ok so i have been falling really behind in the picture world. we haven't been taking pictures of my belly... so i'm sorry for that! but below is our christmas pictures we took. I was 25 weeks.............. to see the pictures bigger click on them
this picture isn't the best, but i had promised a friend (TawnA) that i would post a belly pic.. and well i thought i had some on my camera.. its dead, and i can't find the charger... so this isn't the best picture but i took it with my computer...... but i guess you can see the belly (dont mind the messy house.. its christmas season) and this picture i actually took THIS morning so i'm 27 and a 1/2 weeks.... i am going to the dr. for glucose tests... wish me luck! 
thanks everyone for the support.... I really am going to try and post pictures more often

pregnancy ups and downs

Ok, so i am 27 weeks preg. today and i feel like i haven't been keeping track of everything that has been happening... so if you dont want to keep reading about my preg. stop here. this is kinda for me so i can remember things!

so my pregnancy hasn't been bad.. but there has been a few road bumps!

1st things first, i feel big.. brady says my belly doesnt look different than it did 2 or 3 weeks ago... but it is definately bigger to me. its more firm, and i notice it gets in the way now.... i sometimes forgot its there when i reach down to get something, or reach over the table or something and BAM i run into my belly. The other day me and my mom were walking around a store shopping and i usually am ok to walk right next to her... well i kept hitting my stomach on her purse.. silly me. i guess i need to watch out for those types of things! :)

my back aches..... to this day i haven't had many problems.. but lately the sciatica pain has started coming during the night and well i'm not looking forward to what its going to be like in a few months.

Heartburn.. well i have only had it once.. on thanksgiving night and i am pretty sure i ate WAY to much turkey!!! haha.. so i'm knocking on wood, and hoping that it stays away. :) i take two tums with my prenatal everynight just to PREVENT it during the night... so whether i'd get it or not, i wouldnt know.. i'm not willing to find out.

my hair is falling out, and i hate it! i heard that you are supposed to get beautiful hair when your preg.... well if thats the case my hair sucks cause its all falling out! haha...its not really growing either. crap!

i wake up at least once a night to pee... is that normal? i guess it could be worse.. but still! i hate having to get out of a warm bed to go pee. totally not cool. i have even tried to not drink liquids after a certain point at night to see if that will help and well.... it doesnt....

i feel like i lose sleep... from all the back aches, to peeing, to just being exhausted.... i was way tired in the first trimester and the second has been great until like the last 2 weeks.... i sleep in longer, am late to work... and i hate it.. any suggestions?

people say the darnest things! i will have to take a picture of my belly today and post it, but ok so i say i feel big.. but i'm probably not big enough people should have started saying stuff right? well wrong... they dont care how big you are, or aren't.. some people just DONT HAVE A FILTER! i was walking by a CNA at my work the other day and she's like, wow you sure got that pregnancy waddle.... ok so maybe its not so bad, but i dont know if she has kids or not... and if she does she should know not to say ANYTHING to a pregnant lady! haha.... i dont know if i was just having a bad day or what but it hit a nerve........ we aren't even friends.. it'd be different if we were close.. but saying something like that when you hardly know the person.... pshhh

but from all the little things that make me bad talk preg.. like mine has even been bad.. it hasn't so i shouldn't talk at all.... but from all those little things.. there are great things as well!!!

i feel him kick ALOT! and when he does i am reassured that he is in there and he's ok... he talks to me and i talk to him and there is communication......

I everytime i go to the dr. they say i am measuring just perfect, and i am happy for that....

me and brady can't decide on a name... nothing has stuck... its a hard thing because its such a big deal! we have thrown some out there, but we aren't sure... its funny how people are. we like some names and what to share, and you should hear the remarks we get back...... i'm like HELLO people, if i like it enough i'm going to name him that anyways despite what you say. :) haha but we are trying to eliminate the possiblities of him getting made fun of, having the same name as everyone else, and not being able to play the rhyming game with the name... so we'll see!

oh the joys of pregnancy... i might complain a little but in all reality i am SOOOO HAPPY, and nothing could take the joy feeling away from me. he is such a special little guy already and i am so excited that i only have 3 MORE MONTHS! i can't believe it.... sometimes i think i'm ready, other days i dont.....

we love you little guy! :) stay cozy in there until your ready!
