Merry Christmas to MEEE!!!

Well Christmas 2009 sure came and went!!!I'm a bit sad how fast time is going by, pretty soon Ill have a baby and then it wont be a little baby anymore :(
I had a SUPER AWESOME Christmas surrounded by my close friends and family! I got my FLIP CAMERA! And Reebok Easy Tones to whip me back in shape POST BABY!
My best friends threw me a little Dinner party/baby shower
it was turned out nice! I received a lot of necessities to prepare for the baby!
they did well!

Im 34 weeks and 3 days prego today....I have 5.5 weeks to go, or 40 days!!!
so so close to being done! I feel huge. I get little feet stuck in my sides....and elbows in my pelvis
It takes me what seems like minutes to turn over while sleeping, which before I didnt even have to put thought or effort into turning over while sleeping. My bladder is being smooshed daily.
Ive discovered some nasty stretch marks on my thunder thighs......and thats ok...better there then on my stomach. For the most part I really dont have much discomfort or complaints...Im convinced most women are just NEEDY, AND LAZY...and make excuses to make everyone else do everything for them.

Close the book.

End of this what seemed to be a never ending chapter.
Im beginning a NEW STORY, a new dream, a new outlook, a new fairy tale.
Single Parenthood here I come... I think its time to start a separate blog with my new story...
hopefully I can help other women in my same shoes, shed some light, even get good advice and light for myself........

32 Weeks

32 weeks. 8 months.
7 weeks and 6 days to go and or 55 days!
Holy crap 8 months to me is a MILESTONE.
I feel Huge! I feel a big baby in there fighting for space!
I feel like my bladder is being smashed, and its becoming quite uncomfortable.
I had a little bonding experience in the tub tonight...
I was sitting there and and either its head or butt bulged out of my left side, I would put my hand over it and gently push, she/he would flip around and come back, repeatedly! I found my self laughing and borderline crying at the fact we were "playing" and it was so cute!

Heart touching blog...

A friend showed me the link to this blog
and I instantly became touched. Life can be so short, and taken away at any time!
Its a tragic, story about Gavin Owens. The blog is beautiful, and what a STRONG family full of nothing but love to have the strength to blog about the hardest days they've ever encountered.
I had to share with others this amazing story, and family! Never take the people you love for granted, and enjoy every moment in life!

I love her work, and to have a custom painting by her is so awesome! and touched my heart!

24 weeks...

Today I am 24 weeks which is 6 months! my little baby is 168 days old. Only 16 weeks remaining until my DD!

I feel him/her partying it up in my womb, all the time.. definitely beginning to notice the kicks and punches getting stronger.
My 3rd trimester is right around the corner!
