Next doctor's appointment, I'm asking about what I can do with my restless legs. I'm really sick and tired of either not falling asleep or not being able to be in bed with Jordan while he's trying to fall asleep. So here I am, online, at midnight, waiting for my legs to calm down or Jordan to fall asleep. Whichever is faster. It's really been messing with my sleep schedule and making me more grouchy. Not such a good thing right now. Oh, the joys of pregnancy.
On another note, starting to pick out dates for baby showers. Seriously, 11 weeks away (til my due date). That's CRAZY! I can't believe how close it is. Wow.
Yeah, definitely ran outa things to say... So I figured that I would borrow a survery that my fello preggo got from one of her friends. Looked cute, so enjoy ;-)
How far along? 28 weeks and 6 days
Total weight gain/loss: Gained 24 lbs
Maternity clothes? I'd rather wear my lounge pants (that I made) with a sports bra and an oversized t-shirt... Ahhhh, sounds so much better than tight clothes!
Stretch marks? None (so far...)
Sleep: Sleep? What's that?! Definitely tossing and turning or up and peeing... Take your pick!
Best moment this week: Actually being woken up by her moving. I know it sounds crazy, but I kinda enjoyed it :-)
Movement: Everyday, several times a day. She's a very active baby!
Food cravings: Pickles and Culver's Icecream (but not together... Ewww)
Gender: It's a girl :-D
Labor Signs: None (yet...)
Belly Button in or out? Neither. It's more of an even-ny... LOL... I guess it depends on how I am sitting. But definitely more out than in sometimes.
What I miss: SLEEPING ON MY STOMACH!!!!!! :-(
What I am looking forward to: Being able to hold her in my arms, kiss her little cheeks and see that beautiful face that Jordan and I created. Miracle of life is such a beautiful thing!
Weekly Wisdom: Make sure you don't sneeze on a full bladder....... :-/
Milestones: I think just being less than 3 months away from my due date is a milestone.
Realization of the week: I'm gonna have a baby in 3 months!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Tomorrow is going to be a very exciting day for me!!!!!!!! My mom and I are going to register for baby stuff. AHHH!!! I can't wait :-D Jordan's super happy that he doesn't have to do it. I had to drag him to do our wedding stuff. Oh well, I'll have tons of fun with my mom! Starting to pick out dates for baby showers. I can't believe I'm due in less than 12 weeks. Wow has time flown by! Three months seems like a long time, but I feel like I just found out I was pregnant. And that was 6 months ago...
Definitely not enjoying this humidity. I think I've taken off my wedding ring for the last time. I never wear them (I have another ring that Jordan gave me while we were dating) at night, because of bad circulation in my hands. They swell up too much and makes my fingers go numb. But with the heat and me being pregnant, I've decided that I shouldn't risk forcing them back on anymore. I'll just get a cheap band and wear that instead. Sigh. Oh the joys of pregnancy ;-)

Did my glucose testing last week. And I'm assuming since I didn't get a phone call that nothing abnormal, but I'll find out for sure tomorrow at my regular check up. A lot of my other preggo friends made a big deal about the sugary drink you had to drink before hand. Made it seem like it was huge and you could barely drink it in the 5 min they allowed you too. I actually really liked it. It honestly just tasted like a kool-aid drink that my brother would make (with extra sugar). So thanks Bryan, for preparing me for the glucose test. HAHA! Definitely didn't like the needle poking they had to do. Sigh... Will this ever get easier?!?!? First time I ever bruised too from it. Looks worse today than it did last Thursday. I guess that's what I get for an overly chatty nurse poking my arm. LOL.
Definitely looking forward to house sitting for my best friend's parents this coming July (first full week of July). Out in the country, taking care of their farm animals, laying in the pool ALL DAY LONG! I might actually be able to tan my back for once. SOOOO excited. Nothing relaxing me more than just being out there in the quietness of life. Enjoying the farms noises and smells (yes, I love the smell of farms) and the cool breeze of the country air. SIGH. I'm getting relaxed just thinking about it! I would love to live in the country. But not sure if my clients would want to drive down to Caledonia to get their hair done (that's where they live and they found a house for sale that they want me to move into, teehee). Someday...
Oh yes, something exciting did happen to me this past week. My car brakes failed on me. NICE. I knew they were pretty bad. Every now and then I would touch the brake pedal and it would slowly go to the floor, but I would still stop. So until we could afford to fix it, I would just pump my brakes everytime I got into the car and I wouldn't have any problems. Until this day... I believe it was Monday. Just driving home from a client's house. Through construction (so I'm going super slow and keeping my distance) and everyone stopped cuz someone wanted to turn. Touched the brakes and went STRAIGHT to the floor. Started slowing down, but not fast enough. There was no way I was swerving, too many cars and other people around. So I just went straight into the Jeep's tailgate in front of me. SIGH. Pulled over and there was no damage to his car, a little to mine (very, very minor) and he just said "Get home safely" and took off. Fine by me! Super scary though. AHHHHH! However, my super awesome and talented husband fixed them for me and it's all better now :-) I love how handy my hubby is!!!
Offically in my third trimester today. WOO HOO! I'll make sure to post a picture of my belly up soon. I know, I'm WAY overdue...

Since we're staying at my parents right now, Jordan and I pretty much have the basement to ourselves. But since we moved in with a dog, my parent's dog has been getting territorial and started peeing on our chairs down here. So now that we have the crib and dresser set up, we put up a gate to the basement (so Rudy, my parents dog, doesn't come down here). Tonight, I went to put up the gate. Stretched around the flatform (in front of the garage door) to get it, took a step back, but missed the platform entirely. So started falling backwards, FREAKED OUT and grabbed anything and everything I could. Which meant back of the thigh into the guard rail, head/arm/palm into the textured ceiling and ribs into the door handle. None of that really hurt (at the time), I think I was more scared about falling backwards, down the stairs, and hurting our baby. So yeah, definitely started sobbing. Jordan ran upstairs to check on me and put his hands on my belly, Autumn kicked for him :-) Letting him know she's ok or startled that I woke her up. LOL. But yes, now I'm in a lot of pain. Sigh, just another bruise to add to my list...
On a better note. Jordan and I had a date night tonight. Went to the Whitecaps baseball game. Since I work there now, I don't really have time to sit and watch the whole game. So it was fun to sick back and relax for once. For dinner, we had french toast.... Not sure about you pregnant (or were pregnant) women but syrup most definitely wakes the baby up! She was moving constantly. Kicking like crazy. During the game you could see her kicking on my belly. So I showed Jordan and he thought it was really cool. Then he put his hand on my belly and she "moved" and then he had enough. HAHA. It just cracks me up how much it grosses him out when she moves around. I think it's the coolest thing ever :-) Men, they just don't understand!

My brother did this pretty much free hand with wax face painting crayons.
Pretty darn good if you ask me!!!

So here I am, writing a blog at 1:40 AM because my restless legs are bothering Jordan. He can't fall asleep when I'm moving around so much. And I can't sit still because it's so incredibly painful!!! Forgot to drink my glass of milk at dinner and this is what I get. Stuck on the computer until I know he's fallen asleep. Poor hubby. Has to put up with me throughout this pregnancy. He just read the other day that my mood swings will get worse in my third trimester... Scared him, just a little. LOL. I'm not all that bad, just more emotional and more tears. Not so much up and down.
Most definitely not looking forward to the next 2 weeks. Sigh, lovely glocouse testing (blood work an all) along with test for antibodies and the rhogam shot at 28 weeks. Can't stand needles! My aunt told me that my fear of needles would get better as the pregnancy progresses.... LIES!!! It's been getting worse for me because there's so many!!! LOL. And there's more to come.
Ok, definitely the drowziness talking now. I wish there was more exciting things to write about. Besides the fact that Autumn is fully aware of where my bladder is and is successful at making me jump at the worse times (like kicking me so hard when I have fries in my hand). Good times Autumn!

Let's give you all a current update about what's going on in my life. I've been married for over 2 1/2 years now to my best friend, Jordan. We are currently expecting our first child this September (16th) and that's part of the reason why I wanted to start a blog. I tried the whole journal thing, but that lastest a whole 2 weeks. I like telling other people my story rather than just writing it down for me to see.
My favorite ultra sound picture with her hand under her chin. Jordan says she's flexing. I say she's gonna be a smart one cuz she's thinking ;-)
She's sucking her thumb with the rest of her fingering sticking straight up. So cute!
In this picture, she just pulled her fist out of her mouth. Don't ask Jordan to do that for you!
Long legs and feet, just like mommy and daddy!!
