Coming from a person that has always been able to sleep to now that I wake up constantly I actually realize how the other half live and I hate to say it but how do you do it. I had an emotional couple of days and think that hurt my sleep schedule even more so yesterday my body and I had words and I spent most of the day sleeping and it was amazing! I guess it is true that when you are tired enough, you will sleep no matter what and that was the case yesterday and last night. I even had a dream last night which means I was in a deep enough sleep to have it and remember it. Don't get me wrong, still did the waking up thing but for the most part, I was able to get back to sleep, here's to having a sleep full day!

circle of life

So, I know someone that is during 100 this weekend and my own grandpa who is 99 is about to say goodbye to the world soon. He is choosing his fate and I believe in the circle of life and him exiting this world so my new baby girl can enter. People think I am too alturistic when I think like this, but how can you be sad for someone that has lived his life, and is choosing to say goodbye. Goodbye grandpa, I love you and know that you will be happy to pave the way for my own little girl's entrance into this world.

bladder dance

Okay, so we are approaching 6 weeks and our little girl is really showing her personality. Who knew you could have so much fun in one's belly. She has taken to dancing on my bladder at nights, isn't that fun? I guess it is for her, not for me, but she is teaching me a valuable lesson on how to survive on lack of sleep. Going to try to forgo the nap today so maybe we can both sleep tonight, one can only hope!

So, why does religion become so important when you have kids? Well, maybe it doesn't for most people but for some reason it has for me. I am more spiritual than religious but want our kids to grow up knowing that they have a place in this world, can that happen without organized religion i'm not sure because i grew up with religion, close family and friends and it taught me a lot about life in general. We had Friday night dinners and my grandparents would come over every Friday night. We would say a blessing and it was a good time. Maybe the family part has more to do with it not sure but i want our kids to experience that warmth and love that I experienced as a child.

Loosing it

Okay, so I think pregnancy brain has completly set in. I have always prided myself on my memory capablilities but at this stage of the game (7 weeks to go) I am a mush of brain. Not to say that I cannot function but still, do I need to misplace clothes and shoes and everything else. Well, the little girl is growing and kicking up a storm so she does not mind so I guess I hope for the best that after she is born it will all come back.

Visit with the Dad

Okay, so my dad moved to a place that he does not like too much, but it has worked out greatly because he comes to visit more often. The cool thing about this visit is that it will be the last one before the baby comes. Wow, yes that might not be cool to everyone but to me it is because I can finally say, I will see you when the baby comes. One can only hope that by the time the baby comes, the weather will be cooler as well!

The heat

Okay dokie, it is October already and it is so hot outside. I have lived in Florida my whole life and never really have had problems with my heat index before, but wholly pregnancy!! Not sure when it will cool down but will have probably given birth by then which is december. Until then I will just have to stay indoors as much as possible!

Okay, we are 9 weeks out and the finally count down in my opinion has started. Hubby was all worried about the 3rd trimester but so far so good. This saturday we will be 2 months to our due date and things are going strong. Trying to stay calm, not over do it and relax as much as I can, yeah right doesn't that sound grand. Also trying to be a good wife and be supportive to my hubby when he needs it. Everyone that I know keeps on saying to hurry up and cook little girl, but i'm okay with having this time to enjoy her and to enjoy being pregnant!
