The truth about this pregnancy

Very little people know about what is actually going on with this pregnancy. This is where the truth comes out and this is my blog and I would like to remember exactly how this felt. It is not that I'm ungrateful for being able to get pregnant this fast but this has been the hardest pregnancy for me. I'm sure some other woman have it worse than me but damn I feel like I am dying.

Oh, and just FYI I may over share my life.

Since the beginning of this pregnancy I have been getting these terrible pains in my stomach. Almost every night I have had unbearable pains. Pains that make me stay up at night. This only happens from 3 in the morning to about 6 in the morning. After those hours I am o.k. It's the weirdest thing that it only happens between those hours. I have told my doctor about it, she has said that it's because of the amount of iron I am taking. I am taking 3 iron pills a day. Yes, 3!! On my first pregnancy I took my iron pills when I remembered and I was fine. This time around I NEED those damn iron pills. I swear those pains feel like Im dying.  So because I am taking so many iron pills that means I have to use the restroom more often.....but I am having a huge problem in that department, because I just can't go. Constipation at it's finest.
She gave me these stool softeners and they made the pain even worse so I have no clue what the heck is going on with my body.

Then I keep getting food poisoning. How the heck this keeps happening is beyond me. Now this food poisoning usually happens at 11pm- 1 am. This kid is very consistant, I have to give him that but god darn it. By the time this baby is close to due date, I wont have anywhere to eat out.

Also,going to sleep so early has put a strain on my life. Jaime and I were just not spending time as much as we wanted because of my sleep. This put a slight strain on our relationship but thank god that we found something for that, so all is well now.

Next, is that this baby pushes out of my stomach at time, and it feels like he is going to tear right out of me. Then blood is going to gush everywhere.



Last, and I'm pretty sure this is going to offend some people but I honestly don't care because I need to remember how I feel. Every time me and my husband get physical;), afterwards it feels like my hoo-ha has taken a pounding. Every.single.time. I mean he is really careful and gentle but for whatever reason my hoo-ha feels freakin' sore. I think that when this baby comes out, that is exactly how it is going to feel afterwards.

Since I've been pregnant, I think I have said I am dying about 5 times already.....and I have also talked to Andrew and said "kid, you better be worth it, you better go to college and become someone amazing. I am going to be pissed off you get someone knocked up at 15 or something."

That's all for now. If I remember more, I will let you know.

Baby boy's name

I can't remember if I have mentioned the name we will be using for the baby. First off I just wanted to point out that we went through  2 names for the girls name. First, I came up with the name Erin but after awhile we just were not feeling it.So the last one, that we were pretty sure we were going to use, was Mia. I really liked the name Mia and I liked it even more because it started with another "M". I'm a little happy that we didnt have to use a girl's name only because Megan Emma was always going to be my baby girl's name.

O.k so to tell ya'll the name of our little baby boy. The name we will be using is Andrew Eric.  We didn't come up with this name. This baby's name is in honor of my little brother that my mother miscarried. I can't remember when she miscarried him but I do know she knew it was a boy already. She had always said she wanted for us to name one of our kids after the baby and well since I love the name Andrew I decided to use it. Jaime likes the name too and well he does not really have a choice because he chose Megan for our daughter, so It's my turn and I like the name Andrew.

Something I want to remember is how weird it is to shop for a boy. I have always shopped for girl stuff and I can't tell ya how weird it was to shop for a boy. I mean there is not a lot of cute stuff like for boys. Just t-shirt and short/jeans for the boy and we are done. I have told Jaime that I want to dress him in converse and ties and he thinks that I am crazy and that his boy is not going to wear that.  Aww poor daddy-o he thinks he has a say in it..thats sweet (evil laugh).

So anyways I have to buy both girl and boys clothes from now on and oh boy it's not cheap when you combine both of them. Lord help us. I still need so much more clothes to buy AND, AND we need to buy diapers. We only have about 2 pack, not boxes, packs. We cannot find size 1 LUVS or newborn for that matter. I mean seriously what the heck is going on in the stores.

Our Valentine's day

I know it's pretty late but better late than never right?:)

So this Valentine's day we celebrated the night before. We exchanged gifts, he bought us chocolates, flowers, and some books. I have not read any books except for the fallen series. He bought me the beautiful creatures book which between you and me, I didn't really care for those books but since he bought them for me I am now going to read them. It's not too bad, I saw the movie so I guess I should have a head start right? Oh and he also bought me my very own fishing pole. I have never had my own fishing pole. We will be fishing on Spring break, and I cant wait!We havent gone fishing in a long time.


For the Mr. we bought him a memory foam pillow that he has been wanting and I also got him a gift certificate from Amazon. I love Amazon. Afterwards we went to the Longhorns restaurant. It was our first time ever at that restaurant. We had a gift card that we had received during Christmas and we had yet to use it. Our dinner was pretty much free except for the tip.


On the day of Valentine's day Megan and I received so much candy and valentine gift from daycare and my classroom. Seriously we have so much candy. We filled about two buckets full of candy. 

That day Jaime called me early in the morning while I was at work saying he needed my help. He needed for me to drop off an application at another city.Apparently, he had done the application but had done it wrong. He was at work and he could not take it in, plus it was the last day to turn it in. So I left from work at 3:45 and after picking up Megan we were finally home at 4:05. I still needed to find some documents that he still needed and they were in the attic. The attic! A huge pregnant lady going in the attic. Im surprise I did not fall. By the time I found all his documents It was 4:25. I still had to go to his work and pick up the rest of the document then I had to go to the next city and turn it in before 5:00. When I got there he was like "babe, I don't think your going to make it, it's o.k.


Now backstory: Jaime and I have had some heated discussion on moving to another city. He is from the next city and I am from this city that we currently live at. I have told him that I want to work at this district and I don't want to have a commute from his city to this city because the drive in the morning is terrible and there is traffic.  If he was to get hired in that city, which he will because he is damn good as his job, it would mean that we are all moving over there and I don't want that.

So when he told me that I probably could not make it in time and that I could just forget it. This thing came over me and I wanted to make sure that his application got sent. I put aside my feeling on the matter and made sure I turned in his application because I love the guy and I want him to be happy where he works at. All he wants is better pay and when he get hired, he will get just that so I thought that, if it's important to him, it's important to me. So Megan and I got there at 4:56, right before closing time. Turned in his application and he was all set to take his test.

I told him I had turned it in and he was just shocked that I actually did everything I could to make it on time. He told me that I actually surprised him because he knows I hate being under pressure to do something but I did it for him, because I love him.

Afterwards Megan and I rented some movies and picked up a large pizza and celebrated Valentine's day together.

Megan's birthday party

 We celebrated Megan's birthday last Monday on the day of her birthday. Jaime was pretty much in charge of the whole party, and I just had to show up and help out a little. Due to not being able to help out during the day, Mr. Jaime did most of the work. I wish I had more time to do stuff during the day. Being pregnant is hard, seriously. You get tired and dang this belly is now in the way!

Megan had a blast at her party. We were hoping to be at home by 7:00 but we ended up leaving close to 8:00. We got home at about 8:25. It was terrible on my feet. Ugh! The only thing that mattered was that Megan had fun and that she was loving being with her friends and family. After we got home she opened up some present and after she was done, she opened up the best present.

Valentine pictures...at home.




Im obviously not a professional but every year I take valentine's day pictures of my baby girl. How I will put the baby in there is beyond me. Lord, it's going to be so weird having a boy around. I'm so not used to it. It honestly feels weird just saying "Im having a boy" because it still feels surreal.

Celebrate

This past weekend we celebrated Megan's birthday with her aunt Dora. Her aunt Dora,which is my sister, lives in Corpus Christi so she wasn't going to be able to make it to Megan's birthday party the next day due to school and work. So we did a small little celebration at my parents house for her. She had spent the night before there with them. She likes to sleep over there for whatever reason. I don't see it, they are weird people(hi, mom!!)






We also had to get some candy and some other things at  Sam's club. It was the first time at Sam's club and it was pretty awesome seeing all the stuff that they had. I got a wireless keyboard, which is pretty cool, if I do say so myself. After we got home we played outside for awhile. The weather has been effin weird in Texas. One day it's hot, the next, it's freezing cold. I hope we are done with the cold already. It has been the coldest winter so far.So anyways, the sun was finally out so we took advantage of it..

We are having.....

Last week I had a sonogram, this was the sono that I have been waiting for, for a long time. I went with my mom to the sono because Jaime had to work. So when we went in to do the sono the lady began looking at the baby and after a couple of minutes she asked me if I wanted to know the sex of the baby. She was obviously able to see the parts. I told her I didn't want to because I wanted Megan and Jaime here. So I asked her if she can put the name of the gender in an envelope I had brought. She was happy to do it and put some extra photos of the baby.
It was so much fun seeing the baby. I cant wait to have this baby already.

So we had already agreed on opening that envelope on Megan's birthday. I still need to write a post on her birthday probably get to that till Friday or Saturday. So after Megan was done opening her presents we went ahead and opened the one we had all been waiting for.

We told her that if it starts with a G it's a girl, if the word started with a B it's a boy. Well, leave it to Megan to trick us and she told us it was a GIRL. I said "oh my god". The only things that flashed in my head were fights about clothes and all kinds of girl crap.

Then I read the post it, and It said Boy. We just stared at her and said "Megan, it says Boy". So that was fun. I still cant believe that we are having a boy. Megan was happy and we were both happy too. I told Megan, "so I guess the boys are going fishing and we are going shopping". I am really happy we have the pair. I guess we really are done. I'm even more happy that daddy will have his partner in crime.




So that's how we found out.
I think what I had planned for my parents was even better..

I had planned to tell my parents on Tuesday. My mother really wanted to know Monday night but I let her sweat it out till Tuesday. 

So after Ballet(Megan forgot her bag so she only did ballet and not gymnastics),  we came home early to tell the family. I had this whole thing planned with them. I made some cards that were blue and pink. So basically inside it had the gender. There were 4 people that were going to open up the slips. I had them each pick the color that they thought it was going to be. My mom and brother chose blue and my dad and little sister chose Pink.  When they opened it my mother yelled. There are only girls in our family so having another male is a pretty big thing. The only boys in our family is my brother, dad and Jaime, versus 5 girls. So it's good that they are gaining another male. 

We could not be more happy and feel more complete. In all honestly, I am so tired of feeling tired all the time. I'm ready to have this baby and move on with our lives with these babies of ours.

23 weeks!


How far along:23 Weeks

Size of baby: Large Mango
 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +9

Maternity Clothes: Is a must

Boy or Girl: We find out next Monday! Ahhhh!

Movement:Lots and lots of movement. This little one is constantly moving around. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I wish he/she would let me sleep in peace. I also have a feeling, he/she is getting closer to my ribs.

Anything making you feel queasy or sick:Nothing this week. Although I have been taking (tmi alert) constipation pills, and they ended up feeling like I was dying of pain, so I stopped taking them. Well on the last day I took them, I somehow threw up my banana. It was gross.
 
Sleep: I hate sleep. I end up falling asleep pretty much anywhere and at anytime. It is really cutting in on my family time. I will never forget this pregnant due to all the sleep I need.

What I miss: Just being normal.

How I'm feeling: Honestly, I'm ready for this baby to come out. I thought pregnancy was going to be as smooth and my first and it has pretty much been a nightmare. I am pretty sure I will go into preterm labor. Not kidding, that's just my predictions. Due to all the crap that's been going on in my life right now. FYI if you plan on getting pregnant, don't do it during student teaching.

Cravings: None this week

Looking forward to: My ultrasound on Wednesday. I have not seen my little baby since he/she was 13 weeks.

Best moment this week:The little baby making me smile when I was in tears. I was crying for, I dont remember why, and then he/she kicked me. Kind of like a "cheer up mom, it's going to be o.k."
