We ended up going for the 3D u/s! There's a 48hr cancellation policy, and we would've been charged $100 to cancel so late. So we went through with it and just stuck it on the credit card.
It was SO cool. He smiled at us a lot, he looks pretty squished already though!
He's breech right now, but has time to move. His legs and hands are both up by his face, and his butt is down on top of my cervix...probably hence all the pressure I'm feeling.
We also had it confirmed it's a boy!
Sucking his thumb
I'm stressed out. I seem to get stressed easier when I'm pg, with all these freakin hormones. And I'm extra emotional, I tend to cry so easily.
It's my baby girl's 3rd birthday party this weekend. As with anything else in our life, I've planned everything and prepped everything. DH does nothing. But god forbid if I do give him something to do...he forgets or it's a big deal. It's driving me nuts.
I'm missing a really good friend's birthday celebration tomorrow night because I have too much prep to do for Saturday. DH can't do it, he's freakin useless.
I asked him to go to the Dollare Store tonight for the couple last few things we need - loot bag toys and hats. "Maybe". Maybe??!?!?! What's to think about? It should be a simple yes. I rarely ask him to do anything, it's easier to do it myself. So when I DO ask, I'd really appreciate the help. But apparently it's too much to ask.
I need a freakin vacation away from life.
I'm also not sleeping well. Baby's waking me up TONS in the middle of the night. He's doing some dancing and jigs inside Mommy's tummy while she's trying to sleep. Therefore I'm moody, cranky and plain TIRED.
I don't need financial stress right now...it's the last thing someone needs when pg.
We just found out our car (2002!) needs a new engine...ugh. $2500. The piston blew up and there's metal all over the inside of the engine. Lovely, just freakin lovely.
It's Friday. TGIF. I'm ready for a weekend, and tomorrow morning I'm telling Dean I'm sleeping in. I'm exhausted and I think it's just the extra stress I've been through.
Dean and I didn't get along last night at all - we're both stressed out and taking it out on each other. I just ended up going to bed early and having a cry before falling asleep. All this crying is so odd for me, but it's actually nice to be able to let go of my emotions, I'm usually such a rock.
I just want our car fixed, and to have my car back again. I hate having my Mom come out of her way to pick up Mikayla and I every morning. I hate worrying about whether all these extra financial stuff will affect Christmas. I worry about if this stress is affecting my baby. I worry about sitting at my desk and just needing to cry. I worry about how this extra stress at home is affecting Mikayla. I worry too much when I'm stressed out. It stresses me out more.
I just want and crave a peachy life right now. Just til my pregnancy's over at least.
Things are SO much better. Our car situation worked out - we are now only paying $1500 ... much better than $2500!!
I also got our line of credit increased which was a big weight off our shoulders.
Stress is gone - Dean and I are getting along - I'm feeling less emotional - everyone's happy. Money creates such crazy stress in life.
29 weeks...wow. I went to the Dr's yesterday and I only gained 2 lbs this past month! I'm measuring on track, baby sounded great and is HEAD DOWN!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOO. I'm feeling his movements and seeing the waving motions across my tummy as he moves inside. Love it.
My new belly pic for 29 weeks...
Baby's running out of room in there. I can feel his every movement I think..and the ones that make me stop what I'm doing is when he's moving right behind my belly button. It must be a sensitive area or something.
I'm starting to get anxious to meet this little guy, and I'm really curious to know how big he's going to be.
10 weeks to go, I can hardly believe it. That's 28 work days left too!
Someone mentioned that the 3D u/s pic in my siggy looked as though there was a profile of another face looking at the baby. I had to check it out, since a gf already mentioned it by email, but I never looked into it.
It totally looks like there's another face in there. We know there's only one baby, so I look at it as though it's baby's guardian angel. Very cool. Then someone posted this on my bb... http://www.angelinthewaters.com/
I can't believe Christmas is almost here. This year's been so much fun already - just prepping Mikayla for it all. I can't imagine what it's going to be like to watch her open presents with all her excitement, and I REALLY can't wait to see her face when she walks downstairs on Christmas morning after Santa came. It's going to be soooo much fun this year.
My belly's been having the odd twitch here and there lately - I think it's my muscles stretching and expanding.
Lots of BH too, when I went grocery shopping the other night I had to keep stopping and breathing deeply. Maybe my Mom's right, and this baby will come early..I dunno.
Last day of work today and I can't wait for it to be over!! Ahhh, the holidays.
