I was at work one day at the daycare I worked at, and I was looking at the kids and just thought about how this time 2 or 3 years ago they were nothing but a dream for their parents. And now here they were as little actual living people playing with toys and looking at books. So I got this really weird urge that I wanted to write a letter to our future child.

I sat down that night and wrote out a letter just explaining how we were in the crazy process of planning our wedding that was just 5 months away and that after we got married we would be trying for them and where we were right now in our lives job wise and ages and just little things like that. That we dreamed about them already and hoped to be pregnant by the same time next year. And that was that- I put the letter away in a safe spot.

Then I was a day or two late but thats happened before and it was always nothing. But I had a cheapie test so I decided to take it (because you know AF will show up right after you test lol!) Well I got this…

life changing..

I couldnt believe it!! Never seen THAT line before!! HUGE surprise!!

A few weeks later I got the letter out to put with the other baby papers and looked at the date on it- 3 DAYS before I took the test!! The paper was dated 4-20-10 and I took the test 4-23-2010 a year from tomorrow!! So in one year we went from that to this.. And we couldnt be happier.

 

2 months February 10, 2011

My little Rj is 2 months old now. I searched the internet to come up with a survey like thing to answer each month but alas there was none…so I came up with my own..

Weight: 11lbs 13oz he’s filling out soo much! Its adorable! wearing size 1 diapers finally 😀 Still has all his dark hair!

Height: 23 inches no more newborn clothes all 0-3 month clothes

Eating: Formula fed- 5 ozs every 4 hours

Sleep: Sleeps during the night from about 10pm-3, takes his last feeding around 8:30PM/9 then is awake for awhile then sleeps until 3…sometimes wakes around 12:30 to be comforted then he goes back to sleep. Then awake every 4 hours after that to be fed. Goes right back down after each feeding until about 8/9 oclock AM.  During the day he eats, plays/is content for a while then about a hour and a half to an hour before the next feeding he goes to sleep for a little while.

Activity: He rolls from his tummy to his back, can lift and steadly hold his head up, likes his swing sometimes but doesnt ever sleep in it. Has been doing the “mini push ups” since month one! Doesnt show any intrest in rattles or anything like that yet. He only uses the binky when we’re trying to get him asleep and when he’s in the car seat. He’s starting to like the bouncy chair more, even though it doesnt vibrate anymore(batteries died, must replace soon)

He is just growing so much and changing everyday, and when other people are holding him I just get over whelmed with this “my baby is soooo cute” feeling. LOL he really is adorable and could be a model…I should put a pic up just to show him off and then take it down after a day or something…i’ll think about it. 😀

 

30 Weeks Tomorrow! October 19, 2010

Well tomorrow our countdown will be down to just 10 weeks otherwise known as 7o DAYS!!!

I remember looking at the wedding count down when it was at 70 days…now we just passed the 3 months of marriage mark…and still going strong 😀

Things have been good. Finally getting things done around the house, its starting to hit me that we don’t have much time left and the nesting is finally beginning.

I figured out what the pain is ive been having, I do have round ligament pain but also pain from my pelvis splitting, apparently its suppose to stretch and mine hurts a lot when it’s doing that. Some days are worse than others but the last couple days have been ok. It just makes it difficult to walk comfortably.

Also when I sit down and try to bend over to pick anything up I get a weird cramp like thing and I know its his body getting in the way. I’ve been feeling him up top more and more and I know with in the next couple weeks is when they are supposed to turn head down for delivery. Mr. Blur felt an actual body part last night rather than just kicks and movements, he said “that was creepy” lol I think it is too 🙂

Well thats about it for new things…I have my next appt November 1st when im 32 weeks and then its every two weeks for appts! That will make time go quick too. Then we have 2 birth classes the first two Wednesdays in december. Time should continue to move pretty quickly.

*******Also almost forgot but Mr Blur got a new job today!! He starts monday and we are very excited for this opportunity he’s never done full-time before and with the money he’ll be bringing in we wont have to scrape by nearly as bad as we are this month (he had disability income but since we got married and my income was “too much” they cut it at the beginning of this month (with no warning I might add, they told us originally that my 2 part time jobs wouldnt effect his disability income “much” psf!!)and we used that money solely for rent and utilities so it really was hurting us right now not having it) but now the stress can melt away :D…at least I hope lol

 

25 weeks 2 days September 17, 2010

Its been a couple of weeks since my last update. Things are going well. I feel this little boy all the time, mostly down low but every once in a while I’ll get kicks up at the top of my belly, which are most fun because those are the kicks that other people can feel and  that make my belly jump and I often get distracted just watching my belly move.

I’m still sick every once in a while, Tuesday was an especially bad day for me. I was puking all day! I’ve felt better since then though. I had my 6th month check up on monday and everything looked great, all they did was measure my belly (for the first time, said it measured right on target) and listened to the baby’s heart beat (150/160s). The worst part about the appt was the wait, my appt was at 2:30 and I didn’t see the doctor until 4!! For a 2 min appt! Never again will I have a monday appt, apparently Mondays are usually pretty crazy around there.

Next appt is in October, the 11th I think. It’s the one where I have to do the glucose diabetes test…oh joy. lol By that appt I will be in my 28th week and officially in the 3rd trimester! How in the world did that happen?!? 😀

We’ve gotten a few clothes and things as gifts and then I’ve also been garage saleing and found lots of cute clothes, and everyday im getting less sacred and more excited to have him here. I can’t wait for baby snuggles…and this time from a baby that’s mine-how crazy is that!!

We also got an infant carrier/stroller/2 car seat bases for 60 bucks. The infant seat will expire Dec 2011 so we will get one years use out of it, although I’ve been told they don’t use the same car seat for THAT long…but I really don’t know anything about car seats so I need to do some reasearch on how long he’ll be using this one. We’ve also received some bottles and a few toys and such. Other then the baby nessceties like diapers and wipes and the million other things babies need lol we just need a crib to be able to bring this baby home. There is a crib that I want to buy that’s about 170 dollars and its a “mini” crib the same size as a pack and play and I think it will be just perfect for his half of his room. Since we don’t have a second bedroom yet he’ll be bunking up with us (which I hate but we don’t have any other options right now, I’ve put my foot down on starting a huge renovation project until spring, when we could then possibly move in with relatives till it gets done, our house is just too small and old to have a baby in it while doing major remodeling)

Well that’s about everything that’s going on these days. Little by little we’re getting things in the house cleared out so there is some room for this baby and eventually it will all come together. We’ve only got 14ish weeks left!!(CRAZY!)

PS We have a name officially picked out- just cant share it yet cause its a secret 😀 Unless Mr. Blur spills first then I can 😀

 

16 Weeks 2 Days July 15, 2010

Also known as TWO days before the wedding!!

We head out in the morning with our caravan of bridal party to our destination. We then spend all day setting up, cooking, spotting picture areas and just getting all the nitty things worked out.

Im very excited and I hope everything goes well. The weather seems to be holding up as far as rain on saturday, its suppose to be hot- 91 degrees but the humity isnt suppose to be to bad. Rain on sunday- and sunday is the day Im looking forward to most, just relaxing together as husband and wife, we’ll be in our hotel then so rain wont be a bother 😀

The baby is doing great, I think I may be feeling it somewhat these last couple days but I try not to get my hopes up since it could still be a couple weeks before I know for sure if that what it is.

We find out the gender in 4 weeks at our anatomy scan on August 13th. I try not to think about that too much or its going to make for a long wait.

Well I gotta get going and finish gathering up all my bathroom nessecities, its so difficult getting ready for something as big as your own wedding in a hotel room 2 hours away! I hope I dont forget anything.

And next time you hear from me I will be MRS. BLUR 😀

 

6 weeks 1 days …again or 6 weeks 2 days May 7, 2010

I went to my follow-up OB appointment and they did another ultrasound. We saw the heart beat! That was pretty amazing 🙂 Beating at 121 beats per minute. I measured at 6 weeks 1 day so the growth has slowed down some but nothing to be worried about. If you still go from my last period I’d be 6 weeks 2 days today and by the first ultrasound that was 2 days ahead I would be at 6 weeks 4 days. I’m just going to go by my last period since the growth can vary so much for each week or which ultrasound tech you have can make it vary too. And really how much can just one or two days throw it off in the long run ya know? Not much im sure.  But everything looked good they said, and the tech also said the pain I could be feeling could be because I ovulated from that side also.  So who knows! lol As long as the baby is healthy.

As far as wedding things go its been hectic, we had dinner with all the rents and stuff the other night and went over everything. I really REALLY appreciate every thing they’ve done and are doing for us…

.. BUT I just really would like it that if when they say something like this for example: “I called SO and SO and we can get 150 napkins with your names on it for 55 dollars-which color do you want?” and I say “We REALLY don’t need those, you just throw them away anyways and lots of people I talk to said don’t waste the money on them”  that they would just say OK she doesn’t want them, move onto the next topic.

Instead I hear this over and over “but its your special day and we want to make it special for you and you’ll want one of these for your scrapbook”…and on and on Or that I don’t want to wear my big hot ball gown and would rather wear a summer dress, im still hearing that “you should wear the dress you bought already, to make it a special day”……….UGH

It will be a special day because I am marrying my best friend!!!

NOT because I have napkins with my name on it or because im sweating my A** off in a huge dress cause that’s what YOU want. Or because the invitations are cute and because ONE whole person MIGHT save one of the invites…(seriously don’t we all just throw them away after a while anyways?)

Irritating and Mr Blur says im being selfish for not letting them do what they want for us. Because “they just want to make it a special day for us”  They arent understanding that I don’t need all that fancy stuff to make it special for me.  It’s already going to one of the most special days of my life.

 

Its my BIRTHDAY!! September 1, 2009

I am finally hitting the big 20!!

I am finally no longer a “teenager”

I had a wonderful meal with friends that are in town at Buffalo Wild Wings, I had a great meal with Mr. Blurs family and I am getting taken out to a “FANCY” restaurant with my family to celebrate my birthday and the sale of their other house.

It feels good to be in the 20s.

The 20s is where everything starts happening.

I’m getting married

we’re going to start a family (and probably finish one too) in my 20s

We’ll be redoing our house (or moving to another one as this one has no room for said family) in my 20s.

So many exciting things to look forward too. 🙂
