8 Months In!

Ocho. Yup, that's right 8. I'm eight months today and pretty soon my bubby will be here. Wowzers! Seems like it went by fast, then it feels like it goes by really slow. But every Sunday gets just a little more exciting to count down the days :)

I have nothing interesting to add this month except that I'm pretty close to the big day. I'm glad Summer's coming to an end, it really sucked this year. Especially since I broke my foot and all. I'm not really a Summer as much as I used to be, weird.

I can't believe I made it this far though, pretty crazy still. I think these last two months are just going to come so fast, I'm scared! Well nervous mostly, but I'm also anxious for her to get here. I want to meet her so bad! I have no idea when she plans on arriving, before or after her due date, but we shall see. If I make it all the way to 40, I'll die. Just kidding.

I'm finding out these last minute "preparations" are a bit crazy to handle. Like birth plan and getting the overnight bag ready. Despite all the madness, it still doesn't take away how ecstatic I am about the whole thing and constantly recapping the journey it was to make it this far!

It might be weird to think that sometimes I don't want her to actually leave my belly. I feel like she's protected from any danger from the outside world, and I know where's she at at all times. As much as I want her to stay, I also want her to get out :P just so I can hold her already! But I'm not going to wish for it, I don't want her coming too soon. I know she'll come out when she's good and ready, so I have to keep playing this darn waiting game a couple months more.

Ehh, it's all worth it :D

Can't wait till October!

I love you Sariah <3

P.S has anyone seen the commercials for The Baby Wait show? I just watched the first episode a couple days ago, stuff is depressing as crap man. Especially when the series actually starts two days after my due date -_- yeah, that's really depressing to me. But I know for sure I'm not giving my girl up! No way :)

7 Months In!

Which mean 'tis the beginning of third trimester! 7 months in, only two to go! Holy Batman, this would now be the time where I feel like it's going by very quickly. Of course, I don't have everything set up, so here goes the pressure!

On the surface everything still feels the same. I'm just more sluggish and so cannot wait for this stupid cast to come off next Monday. The heat hasn't been helping and I could just imagine how sweaty and gross it's getting inside it :/ I think that's my biggest complaint so far.

And then the loverly glucose test tomorrow -_- what fun that will be, hopefully I pass it.

On the bright side my baby shower is coming up soon, on my birthday which is the 13th! I have mostly everything done, except the decorations I'm going to make fresh before the shower. I'm actually really excited to have one, kind of surreal that this time the shower is actually for me.

Last but not least, Little Miss Sariah is doing fine from what I can tell. She sure loves wedging her little butt into my ribs, hopefully she'll start to move down like they're supposed to. She's definitely mastered the art of kicking, and I just happen to be her punching bag. But in a way I don't mind, least I know she's alive in there.

I cheated a bit and helped myself to a cup of decaf coffee and it was delish! Haven't had coffee in like 5 months, which is a world record! Well for me at least :P

Also now know what it's like to have an outie belly button...huh.

6 Months In!

6 months in and a smile for you :)

My my my. 22 weeks finally. Only three left to go, sheesh. It's going by fast, yet it's not going by fast.

I was a bit worried that I hadn't felt Sariah kick as much she usually does, but then I remembered now is where babies enter a sleep cycle, so she's probably snoozing in right now. She definitely makes up for it when I'm going to sleep! I probably spend an hour just laying there trying to get used to those thumps.

Also think I'm not really friends with milk just suddenly decided it didn't like me -_-

I actually had my scan last week but didn't get a chance to post it yet. I went in for the anatomy scan and of course Riah charmed the UT...again. She's so crazy, that's why I love her :D

To the people where I live, who think I shouldn't have my daughter this one's for you :


She seems pretty happy don't you think?

5 Months In!

5 months in! She said hello this morning :)


18 weeks, 1 day today. Almost half way there! Still feels like a light year though :/

Anyways came back from another scan and everything still seems to be in tip top shape. Darling daughter of mine seems to have been keeping herself busy as I still feel her thumping my stomach a couple times a day. I think she likes her new found skill :P

Under the surface, everything else is just peachy. I can sleep again, I'm not craving so many things at once, but I am seriously obsessed with cherries and cereal at the moment.

We also have settled on a name!!!! But we're not going to tell it just yet...(;

Here's now where things start getting serious. I have the shower to plan, as I am making my own candy decorations. I also found a nursery that I just love so I'm trying to save up for that.

Oh, and well I can't keep it a secret anymore.


4 months in!

4 months in - second trimester today!- flutters :)

14 weeks today eek! Which means I'm into my second trimester officially. Jeez, it seems now it's going by pretty fast :S never the less, it's a moment to celebrate! I'm just honestly glad I'm not sick anymore and able to enjoy my favorite foods...for now...knock on wood.

I think I'm getting huge! Well it just seems like at times I grow an inch or so, but I think it's in my head o_O ehh, we'll see how huge I get in the next couples months :P

I also thought I felt a flutter! It wasn't a kick obviously, but it felt as if someone just swiped their hand across my stomach. I was discussing this with a couple other people and even though it varies, it's possible to feel small flutters here and there, but maybe it's just gas (; I don't know, but it feels a bit strange sometimes.

All in all I'm feeling pretty snazzy so far and I'm hoping I can remain this peaceful for just a bit longer before I start really showing and what not. I haven't felt this good in a while, I won't lie.

This may be a TMI, but my "girls" are also looking good still :P you may or may not know what it's like to be head council of the itty bitty titty committee, just saying.

Well, I guess that's all that's happening at the moment. On the bright side, my bf took me out to lunch to celebrate today, it was fun, even thought I almost had a heart attack because he almost hit a cat :( but luckily the cat made it across the street safely and we didn't crash :S damn cats always dashing in the middle of road I'll tell you what.

Okay, I think that's enough. Friday is the big day I find out what the gender is! I'm not going to say what I'm hoping for, because every time I express my expectations, I always get something different :P but we'll see if I'm team blue or team pink.

Watch me balloon :

3 Months In!

3 Months In - Peanut makes its debut! I miss my coffee

Warning : some TMI's taking place.

Hey look my fetus can do a magic trick, like appear! I swear I woke up one morning and it was like BAM! BELLY! Well not exactly, but still. I guess it's official this baby is here to stay and thriving at that :)

On a bad note : my cravings are killing me :/ I seriously don't know what else I'll find tasty when in actuality, it's disgusting. I mean, do you find pickles and peanut butter delicious? CAUSE I DO. Like for reals, it's good >.<

Oh yeah, I also pee constantly! This isn't very fun when it happens at work, nor the fact that I work at Starbucks, and I MISS MY COFFEE! I feel like a crack head being tempted all the dang time cause it's smell is just so intoxicating.

And last but not least : night time sickness! Not only do I get sick in the morning, but I deal with it at night too :/ I'm almost afraid of the night now. Sheesh kid, take it easy on me will ya?

On a good note : I'm finding out the gender in more or less 3 weeks! I'm just an incredibly impatient person, nor do I want to wait until the very end to figure out if it's a ding dong or a hoo hoo inside me.

I have a feeling it may be a boy though (;

2 Months In!

I'm late on this, but I've been pretty busy with such stuff. However, I still wanted to keep this as a little momento for later on :)

Well I'm officially two months in, soon to be three. So far, things have been good with junior slowly growing. Had another appointment and looks like he/she's developing pretty well so I'm pretty happy about that. The only real thing that sucks at this point is that I've been really sick and spend most of my days after work snuggling in my blanket. Although walking every day seems to help. Also the fact, that the cravings have commenced! Like seriously, this might be a tad bit difficult to control. The other day I craved peanut butter and jelly with cream cheese on crackers, and then the next day I craved pickles and peanut butter &gt;.&lt; I mean this is ironic since I'm kind of a weird eater anyways, but still eww. More than anything, I hope they don't get too bad, I've already pickles and ice cream. Twice. So err yeah...gotta love cravings.

Anyways, this was in my inbox today :

Hello, Gia!

Your baby is now 5/8 of an inch long, about the size of a kidney bean. New this week: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his "tail" is just about gone. His arms have lengthened, too, and his hands are now flexed at the wrist and meet over his heart. His knee joints have formed, and his feet may be long enough to meet in front of his body. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways.

Yes, I'm one of THOSE moms that just finds every little detail fascinating. But I mean once you're in my position, you'd understand why :)

Well I guess nothing else has happened that's amazing enough to blab about, but on the plus side, my boyfriend joined Mibba! Well I forced him, but he seems to be having a lot more fun than me o_O So add him, bug him, or whatever.

So yeah, this sums up this little entry for month two. I really hope this sickness goes away :/ but oh well, c'est la vie :') I also know most people don't really 'come out' with this until 9 weeks, but I like to be fashionably early, sue me.

Until next time.
