The Not So Pleasant Moments

Here are some of the silly things I have done while pregnant.. now we all know that pregnancy can bring on a LOT of blonde moments even if your hair is dark as can be {no offense}, you do things you would never be caught doing if not pregnant & quite a few embarrassing moments as well. I swear I have had my moments of crazy throughout this pregnancy & I thought it would be fun to share & see who has had similar if not the same things happen.
  • Washed clothes put them in the dryer & have forgotten to start the dryer
  • Started the wash put the clothes in but forgot to clothes the door
  • Stopped at Green lights during rush hour
  • Have gotten up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night & run in to things because you are so completely exhausted you can't keep your eye's open
  • Couldn't remember why you ran to the store.. then bought a ton of stuff only to get home & realize you didn't get the one thing you went for.
  • Started crying during a commercial or TV show that isn't even sad.. but you can't stop crying
  • Looked everywhere for your keys only to find they are in your hand or you left them in the ignition
  • Had desert for breakfast.. while hiding in the pantry so your very curious two year old doesn't see you.
  • Sneezed & peed your pants LOL {too many times}
  • Bathed only to realize you forgot to rinse your hair of the shampoo..
  • Shaved one leg & left the other hairy or one armpit & forgotten the other
  • Felt like complete pooh so you ran to the store in your jammies {yeah I know BAD}
  • Couldn't handle changing your child's poopy diaper so you waited for your hubby to get home to do it HA!
  • Stayed in bed ALL morning while your child played in the upstairs because you are just too tired to do a thing
  • Showered only twice that week? {I know gross}
  • Forgotten how to cook.. LOL well not really just didn't feel like it so you made quick easy meals or ate out all week.. yeah we have spent a lot of money eating out this pregnancy!!
  • Felt like EVERYONE was mad at your or against you so you get upset or pissed & don't even know why?
  • Thought that those non maternity jeans still fit so you get them on without zipping or buttoning them & while out you realize the shirt you are wearing was not as long as you thought & everyone could see that they DO NOT FIT LOL
  • Become so dizzy you have to take your toddler out of there stroller so you can sit in so you don't pass out.
  • While at Target had to use there restroom 2 or 3 times because of course this is the one time you are able to have a bowl movement & of course each time the bathroom is full of people. {So embarrassing}
  • Walked up & down the isle at the store looking for something only for it to be right in front of you!
 Well this all I can remember for now.. I know I have many other moments but I can't remember them right now HA! What are your not so pleasant pregnancy moments?? I would love to hear them :)

Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree..

So tonight we set up our tree. We decided with the little ones have a fake tree would be best & also less hassle to maintain :) We got an awesome deal on it at Target & I am so happy with it. It fits perfect!! I was going to buy some more ornaments to hang but I kind of like the less clutter look & plus since its in the corner I don't have a lot of branches to hang things from since I do still need them out of arms reach of Shiloh fast hands! So here is our Tree..

{Shiloh & Daddy} She was upset because she wanted to help put the tree together!
Hanging the Ornaments

What a good Helper

Oh WOW

I can't reach it


All Done
Our Tree & Our Monkey

Facebook Scares

So more & more I am finding reason's not to have a Facebook. From the hackers, to clickjackers, to phishing on your account.. it's just ridiculous!! I recently canceled my old account because I read that if you have applications on your account those developers have access to all your information & can track you down & find out how to hack into your IP address & access all your information & to delete my applications that I had downloaded over the years would have taken me FOREVER!! Then I read about how having the app on your phone if it is not the real app like instead of using Twitter & instead using Tweet Deck for example or using the all in one applications instead of having different ones for each social site that those App's are gateways for hackers/phishing onto your account.

So I opened a new Facebook because I have a TON of family & friends out of state to keep in touch with & its the most convenient way.. & not even having my account open even 24 hours someone from Dallas was logging into my account from their mobile device. I mean serious.. how ridiculous! So with this account I made sure to take all the necessary step's in protecting my family & privacy. I have it to were they notify me when someone has logged in from a location that I have not set up.. I also no longer am posting photo's on there except a few & I am not putting my location or any vital information on there for someone to steal my identity.

The internet world has always been said to not be safe.. it just sucks that almost everyone uses it to communicate & to keep in touch anymore.. it's sad that we can't do so without things being compromised. So I just want everyone to be careful with Facebook & even Twitter in not allowing too much info out about yourself or family & to not be so click happy with the Likes cause it could get you into trouble.

I have been really parinoid lately after having some random guy come to my house twice in a day and bang on my door repeatedly & even try opening it. I NEVER answer my door when Stephen is not home but this guy was not giving up so I called the police.. the guy never returned.. who is to say he didn't locate me from the internet some way from my Facebook?? I mean I had a lot of information on there that could lead someone right to me. I have sent my address to friends through messages.. at one point I had my address & phone number on my account.. so who is to say he didn't get it from that?? It's a scary world out there anymore & as a parent I want to keep family safe & if that means no Facebook, Twitter or Blog then so be it.. but I haven't heard anything too bad about blogging that cause a concern just yet :)

30 Day's Of Truth Day 21 & 22

Day 21: (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Well I pray this never happens first of all!! Second I rarely EVER fight with my friends, I can't even remember the last time I had an argument with a friend. Anyways if this scenario did happen I would jump in my car & get to where ever they are. I would make sure they were okay & stay by their side until they were. I don't hold anger for long or stay mad at people for long either so regardless of what the fight was about or the situation I would be there for them. 
Day 22: Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Humm I can't say I have any regrets because life is what it is & every choice I have made in life was for a reason & happened so I could be the person I am today & I have no regrets on who I am as a person or how I live my life. But if I could take back one thing it would be my experimenting days of parting & smoking! I hate that I have put harmful things into my body & have been through some of the things that I have but like I said all of that happened for a reason & I am the person I am today because of it & I can't live on regret :)

Here is the list of Questions I am to answer honestly for the next 30 days..

Day 1: Something you hate about yourself.
Day 2: Something you love about yourself.
Day 3: Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 4: Something you have to forgive someone for.

Snow Fun On Thanksgiving

So this year we were able to travel up north to my in laws for Thanksgiving. We were not sure if I would get the okay but I did. We had so much fun hanging out with the family as usual & stuffing our faces full of yummy food thanks to my Mother in Law & Stephen's Aunt who are both awesome cook's!!
When we woke up this morning it was snowing out.. we had already had a good dump the last few days but there was some fresh fluffy white snow for Shiloh to be able to get out in play in with everyone {except me I stayed in doors} she loved it & was heart broken when it was time to come inside.
Here are some pictures from the fun she had out in the snow all bundled up:
I have so much to be thankful for in life & this year has brought a LOT of great blessings to my life. I am thankful for such a wonderful supportive family & extended family. I am thankful that after a year & half we finally were able to get pregnant again. I am thankful that my husbands store is doing so amazing after all his hard work & dedication. I am thankful for good health thus far in my pregnancy & that baby is staying in for now. I am also thankful for my amazing friends new, old, & ones who I have reunited with this year.

32 Week Check Up

So I had my 32 week check up today. As I was waiting I of course became so dizzy & nauseous that no matter where I sat or laid it did not help. My doctor thinks I have a virus.. boo!! She said my iron is not that bad anymore so she is not sure why I am so dizzy & feeling so sick. She said to rest as much as a I can to help with it. I also finally got my Flu Shot!! I was hesitant because I had never had one but I knew it was best & the doctor agreed since I am not only pregnant but high risk as well. The baby is measuring on track now too she said I was measuring big before.. so that is odd! But I lost a pound LOL so I am no longer at 200 I am now at 199 LOL. She also advised me to not go anywhere from here on out without someone to help me if a dizzy spell kicks in. Which is what I have been doing but at the same time it kind of stinks because I don't have someone to bring me to run errands all the time :( But only 8 more weeks right!

Well I go back in two weeks for another check up.. so hopefully I will start to feel better soon!

30 Day's Of Truth Day 19 & 20

Day 19: What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
I believe & I don't talk Politics!!! I think that these two topic's are ones you only discuss with certain people & that with the wrong person can ruin a relationship as sad as that sounds.. some people are just too involved & have too strong of an opinion for anyone else to unfortunately.

Day 20: Your views on drugs and alcohol?
Well I had my day's of partying & experimenting I won't lie but now as a wife & mother I couldn't imagine drugs in my life or being around others who do.

I have other things to focus my time & energy on besides a hangover :)

Top 2 Tuesday


Top 2 Things on Your Christmas Wish List 
1. This is something I have wanted for ever now & I am sure you have see it on my blog many times before.. I know it's not a realistic gift right now because we are saving for a house & to me that takes priority but it is my Top Christmas Gift & maybe there is really a Santa to bring it to me HA!

I make sure daily it's still in active status on MLS & I pray it will continue to be until we are able to buy it hopefully next year.. or unless again there is really a Santa to gift for me ;)

Now for a more realistic list of what I would like:
1. I would love a full on spa day.. massage, hair, mani, pedi, facial.. now that would be awesome to be able to do after I have this baby cause man do I need it & I think I am deserving of it as well!!

2. Man I guess my second top gift choice would either this watch {which I don't know if I would wear it a lot because of the babies}

Riley White Silicone Multifunction Boyfriend Watch by: Fossil

or 
A Visa gift card wold be nice to since I don't really know what I want & as far as clothes I have not a clue as to what size I will be after having Bean. So gift cards are PERFECT!!

Ooh WOW Snow

Shiloh is very excited about the snow.. she loves to watch it fall from the sky!

Oh The Joy's Of Pregnancy {2}


So today was a real challenge. While at the mall Shiloh had her worst tantrum's ever! Stephen was in Gap & I was feeling super dizzy having to sit every few minutes so we went to the mall park to wait. I thought I could sit while she played in hopes to feel better only to find I felt worse.. I never knew you could be dizzy while sitting? Then I felt like puking & the sweats came on & I had this urge to lay down but I couldn't..
then while all this is taking place Shiloh decided to take off out of the park to the rides so I had to run after her & I swear it felt like the baby was falling out.. she did this twice mind you. Everyone was staring at me & I am sure it was because I was pale white with the look of death on my face.. then when she took off again she was kicking & screaming so we left to find daddy!! It was bad very bad & scary because I had to force myself to walk which killed & to not pass out at the same time :(
Let's just say Shiloh is really starting to throw some massive attitude & tantrums that I am not sure if it's because of the baby coming or because she knows I don't feel well? But I honestly can say that I will not be doing anything outside our house without someone else with me because these dizzy spells are getting worse & more & more frequent & it is just not a good situation to be in with a toddler who wants to make things hard.
On a positive note: Tomorrow I am 32 Weeks YAY Almost to the finish line ;-) 

First Snow Fall 2010

Well this morning when we woke up the house tops & trees were covered in snow.. YAY!! Shiloh loved it!

 Plus I feel bad for Shiloh because I have zero energy to do anything fun with her :( we mostly cuddle, read, color, she plays with her toys or watch TV how sad is that!
 These are my last days just Shiloh & I & I didn't intend to spend them this way at all.

30 Day's Of Truth Day 18

Day 18: Your views on gay marriage
Love is love who are we to judge weather it's between same sex or not.. I think if you feel a deep enough love for someone that it is your right to celebrate it & to share it with God & no one else should be able to say you can't. I think it's wrong that people are so judging & I feel so passionate about this subject that it's hard for me to write about it cause I just get angry LOL because I know that there are people who would jump on here & state why it's wrong.. but I am sorry love is love no matter what anyone says!

Some of my favorite same sex couples:
Ellen & Portia
Bill & Scout
I admire their love for one another & I think it's funny that most same sex relationships seem to be stronger & last longer then most non same sex relationships but yet its considered wrong!

Day 17: A book you’ve read that changed your views on something
When I was younger my social worker had me read Go Ask Alice. At first I was like ugh I hate reading & I hate reading books I am told to read.

It's a sad books about a girl who faces many challenges in her life.. it really is a depressing book but so well written & one that really does change you once you are done reading it.

Top 2 Tuesday



Top 2 Favorite Jobs you've had

1.  I too think being SAHM is the best job in the world & so rewarding!! Growing up this was exactly what I dreamed of doing.. being a mom.. caring for my family.. there wasn't anything I wanted more. I do admit I miss having an escape from the daily mommy duties & the adult interaction but I wouldn't trade it for the world & when I am away from her.. I don't feel whole & I get really depressed cause she is my bestie.. my girl & my buddy. Being a mom is the most amazing gift I have ever received & the most amazing job to have the ability to watch you baby grow & learn.

2. My second favorite job was working in cosmetic's. I worked for Dillard's as a cosmetic's manager in 2004 & I loved it. There is something so rewarding about making others feel beautiful. Also I love make up so that was a plus too! I can't wait to one day go to cosmetology school & work in the field. Of course this will not be until my babies are in school!!


 

My Baby

According to TheBump.com this is what our precious Gabriella will look like..

Thanks Mandy @ She Breathes Deeply for the fun idea :)

30 Weeks

My Belly @ 30 Weeks 

Size of baby: 3.2 lbs, 18 inches and as big as a head of lettuce
Weight Gain: I want to say at least 21 lbs.
What I Can Wear: Comfy Clothes!! My maternity pants are getting a little snug.. but I feel better in yoga pants for sure & I still have a few pairs of reg pants that fit. Also I had to buy a new zip up sweater for this cold weather since I don't have any that zip up anymore.
Gender: GIRL!! {Gabriella a.k.a. Ella for short}
Movement: All the time & a lot sharper with her kicks now too & I can feel if it's an elbow or foot which is weird.
What I wish I had: Normal sleep pattern. I am not able to sleep at night which stinks. The unisom & the benadryl do nothing for me :(
Cravings: Water!!!
Sleep: bahahaha what is that
Complaints: I have learned what hemorrhoids are & its horrible! Dizzy spells have left me staying home now unless Stephen or someone else can drive me because I had a horrible scare at the mall a few weeks back that I don't want to have repeated.

Doctor Visit Update: My Glucose came back fine which is a relief. But my iron is super low so I have to double up on my iron now which has caused the awful constipation! We had the ultra sound today & my cervix measured at 2.4 but the doctor said it is fine for how far a long I am & better then she thought. She has also put me on a new medicine for my contractions so we will see how that works out. But we are thinking this little girl is not going to stay put until 40 weeks. I just hope its not before 37 weeks :) Not too much longer now!

30 Week Ultra Sound Precaution

So tomorrow I am going in to have another ultra sound. If you have been following my Baby #2 post then you may know what it has taken for me to get pregnant due to my PCOS or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome & that there was other things in my medical history that was never opened up. I haven't shared & I wasn't sure if I should or if I was even ready but I think its something worth talking about for women who are unaware who may have the same condition or conditions as I do.

In 2006 I was diagnosed with HPV or Human Papilomavirus {the cervical cancer form}. When first told I had this it was a scary time. Not only was I told that I had it but I was also told it was so sever that it had formed to cancer on my cervix's. Being unaware of what this was I was scared out of my mind. All I heard was CANCER & sexually transmitted, so I was so freaked out.. it was a very bad day. So I was referred to see a regular OBGYN because I had had my annual at Planned Parenthood. So I found a doctor & was seen right way. I was told they would have to do a Colposcopy & then a Leep. When this is done they have to take some of my cervix's out. {To explain it would take a long time so just click on the links if you want to know more} Anyways its a simple fast procedure but one that is not fun. Then in 2009 I was told it had returned full force at the cancer lever once again & I would have to have the procedure all over again. I was told after having two of these there is a chance that carrying a baby full term may be hard because the less cervix's I have well the less cervix's I have to hold the baby in. So of course this scared me to death.

I started seeing a specialist in March of this year who is well educated & has handled many cases like mine so she is the one who helped us get pregnant & she is the one who has been very good about keep up with my pregnancy & taking zero chances which is so nice to have peace of mind.

We knew when we were pregnant with Shiloh & even only having the procedure done once at this point that my cervix's may not hold & well she was 2 weeks early. So this time around we have known that I may not carry full term. So since I have been having contractions since 16 weeks & pelvic pain that is some days unbearable my doctor is having me come in tomorrow to measure my cervix's & see where we are at. We don't think she will stay put until January 17th 2011 but we want to see how much longer we may have & if I can make it even to 37 weeks. I pray we can & I know by 32 weeks her lungs are developed & she should be good to go but I want her to stay put for as long as possible. 

I know that if my cervix's measures less the 3.5 cm then my body is preparing for baby to make her way into the world. So I pray we are at or above 3.5 cm. If not there is a chance I will have to be on bed rest or admitted to the hospital to be monitored if it's really low for the remainder of my pregnancy. Most would love to be waited on 24/7 but me well this means I will not see Shiloh as often.. my in laws will have to take her because I won't be able to care for her.. & they live over an hour away & that makes me sad because I know these are the last few weeks of just Shiloh & mommy time. Then if I am in the hospital well lets just say I will probably become super depressed because I will be so lonely in there :(

But I guess I just need to think of the positive's & know that whatever is going on & whatever is decided its all for the best & that God has a plan.. I just hope that there is no cause for concern & that the precaution is just that a precaution. So pray for me & for Gabriella that she is going to stay in my warm belly to at least 37 weeks!!

30 weeks Nov. 8th to Nov. 14th 2010

Day 13: A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days

Well it says to write a letter. Not sure why & how I would write a letter out of this answer LOL so I am not going to. 

Sarah Mclachlan & Dido have gotten me through some tough days being away from my family in Florida. Mary J. Blige & Alicia Keys have helped me with a lot of heart ache & relationships. Dixie Chicks have helped me clear my head & see the bright side on most days, Miranda Lambert helps me with love & warms my heart, Taylor Swift makes me feel like a little girl again in love with her songs & Rihanna & Beyonce well I just love them & the tough girl mood they puts me in :)

30 Day's of Truth Day 11

**Sorry I have been slacking on this.. just haven't had the energy to blog lately.. this baby is taken a lot out of me**


Day 11: Something people seem to compliment you the most on

Something I have been complimented a lot on lately is my daughter & how well behaved she is for only being two. I am not trying to brag either. I just don't let her get away with anything & I make sure she has manners & that she knows her limits. I can't stand when kids are rude & can't say please & thank you. Also she knows the mommy scary voice & that I mean business.. mama don't play around LOL. No I honestly haven't had too many discipline problems with her & think its because I know how to talk to her on her level not on mine & get her to understand. We don't spank in our house either unless it's a must {which is rare} & have only had to use time out a few times.

She is a pretty well behaved child.. but don't get me wrong.. there is a monster behind every sweet face that likes to appear at of course the worst of moments LOL but I feel fortunate that is far & few.

But I can honestly say that is a compliment to be proud of I think.. to have well behaved & mannered children.. so yeah I am one proud mama!
