June 30, 2010


Well we had what could of been a scary and sad weekend turn into a relaxing and happy weekend. My grandmother had a heart attack or so we thought. It turns out she has some kind of thing where your heart quits pumping and just starts to quiver. I forget what it is called and even if I could remember I probably couldn't spell it, buy the end of the weekend she was back home and doing ok. Still a little weak but making it. I will get to see her again in a couple of weeks for the baby shower. We also went to Dallas to visit Eric's parents. It went great, it was wonderful to see them. We don't get to hang out with Eric's family very often so when we do it is great. We went to pick out flowers and other gardening things. I have a picture of the daylilys that I bought. I planted them and they are looking beautiful. I have a lot more landscaping that I would love to do. I hope I can do a little bit this weekend. Tomorrow marks week 29 of the pregnancy. Had a little trouble with going to the bathroom but called the doc and am taking some stuff that has fixed the problem, so far of course. I have my glucose testing next week, we meet our pediatrician, and we have our first baby shower. I am so excited for next week. This weekend we are going out to the lake for July 3rd it will be fun and I will get to see Amanda who I haven't talked to since Christmas. There really isn't anything else going on.

We had a great weekend celebrating fathers day with my wonderful husband who is going to be an amazing father and who has been an amazing husband, my moms family and then with my father. I really hope that all the fathers had a great father's day.

This has been the most amazing and stress free week. I officially think that letting go of the two tough children and their tough parents have given me the ability to breath and teach the other three students. I have had a great time with the triplets and they are learning so much. I am able to see improvement now that I am not side tracked with behavior problems or medical problems.

So excited that I am finally going into my third trimester. This is so exciting Owen will be here before we know it. From here on out we will be busy every weekend but two. I hope this will help the time go by very fast. We have two weeks till our next doctor appointment, meeting our pediatrician, and first baby shower. So very very excited.

This weekend we are excited to go visit Eric's parents in Dallas. While we are there we are going to watch the Rangers play. I am excited they have been kicking some serious ass. Neways, we haven't seen Eric's parents in a while and it will be nice to catch up with them.

Going to Babies R Us today to add some extra stuff to our registry and change some other things so that there is more stuff that is actually in the store. I find that Babies R Us really sucks when going to buy stuff off a registry. The registry is really hard to read you have to ask someone who works there.

Eric is on his way home and i am kind of in a funk mood. I am sure that once I see him I will perk up a bit.

Well today is week 27 of our pregnancy. I don't have much to say other than I am having a lot of weird feelings happening in my stomach. Some weird aches and pains. I am also feeling really tired. One more week and then we are officially in our third trimester. We have a busy weekend the next two weekends so I am guessing that as the summer goes on it will go really really fast.

Well Eric's promotion has been made public. I can now post it without getting in to much trouble. Eric doesn't really like me bragging on him. However, I am so very proud of my wonderful husband. He deserves this as he has been working his ass off. Owen feels like he is getting so much bigger as he is kicking less but moving more. I can feel parts of his body although I don't know what parts. He really seems to love to stomp on my bladder. Well we took or SIDS class last night and learned a lot. Some info was common sense and some was good to know. Don't sleep with your baby is a big one. Not worried about that already decided that little Owen will stay in his own bed and not in ours. The second big one has to do with smoking. Even if you smoke outside and then come in your clothes can transfer toxins to the baby that can cause SIDS. I have decided no smokers can hold the baby for the first year. SIDS is most common in the first 12 months. This weekend I have my last of my teaching classes for the preschool. I will have done all 21 hours in two weeks for the entire year. One thing out of the way before baby comes. We are also getting a shed put up to clean out our garage before baby comes. Today I bought the babies mattress I ended up getting a really firm one because that will also help with SIDS prevention. We are also going to make a trip to my mom's and grandparents on Sunday and then stopping to talk to my dad for Father's day. Eric got some new biking clothes for his fathers day gift. I told him that I know that he will make a wonderful father and I thanked him for how patient he has been with me throughout this pregnancy. I thanked him for taking care of me and doing everything he can to make me happy and comfortable. He really is the most wonderful man and I feel so lucky and so grateful.

Hello to all reading this. Today was a crazy day. I have still been having trouble sleeping lately. The kids were great today which made life much easier. I received a package today and when it was picked up there was an extra little treat laying behind it. A little Kitten had some how gotten on our porch and curled up behind the box. That little Kitty will be well taken care of. We took her to the vet. She was so cute. I had to give her up because I am so allergic. Eric said good thing or we would have added a pet cat to our already growing family. The package happened to be Owen's bedding set that Dina sent me. Thank you thank you. It is so cute and i love it. I Can't wait for little Owen to get here.

well today is the start of week 26. Two weeks to go and then into my third trimester. All is going well. I do have a doctor's appointment in about two hours. Owen is moving around like a crazy man again and I am loving every minute of it. Last night I had hands punching me on the lower left side and feet kicking out on the upper right hand side. I guess it could be switched but either way he was really stretching out. Go ahead baby stretch it out!!

So, I am getting my normal before doctor visit jitters. Owen wasn't kicking much the last two days so of course I started to freak out. However, last night Eric and I got him to kick. Today, and right now to be exact he is kicking like a crazy man. I can't tell you how much I love feeling him kick me. I love feeling him move in any way inside me. Much better week this week with the kids. Two more days till our next baby's doctor appointment. I hope that it is a good visit and not just going in and them saying all is well bye. I will get to hear the babies heart beat for the first time since like 10 weeks. Thursday will also be 26 weeks for little baby Owen. I am feeling a lot of pressure and a little pain in my lower back and around my ovary area. Going to ask the doctor about it on Thursday. Other than that all is well.

June 4, 2010


So, yesterday was the start of week 25. I haven't updated the blog in a while. I guess since last Thursday. Well we had a wonderful weekend on the farm with my Dad, Dina, grandmother, and the young man that is living with my dad. They are helping this high school student out that has a really bad home life. It is really nice of them and it is kind of crazy to listen to him talk. All I can say is that I guess I have grown up.

Eric's volleyball team lost their first game last night which was so hard to watch. He is really trying not to care but we are just both to competitive. Owen is going to be very competitive. I know that Eric doesn't like me posting stuff about him on the blog but I am so happy and proud of him. He got a promotion this week and he is really happy about his new job.

I am having some trouble with work. I feel like I am loosing it. I don't know how pregnant women watch children. I feel like my home is a mess and I can't keep it clean. Having all the kids at our home keeps it messy and I don't have the energy to keep up with the mess. My patience level is zero and my irritation level is 100. I am wondering how I am going to make it to D day without going crazy. Well at least it is Friday and the weekend is here.

Eric and I will be cleaning out the garage this weekend. Fun times with my husband. We must do it because I imagine that we will not want to do it once the baby is here.
