    Default A Surprising Blessing coming in May 2005

    This is my first post, I'm going on 6 months pregnant. I guess better late than never...
    When I first found out I was pregnant again I was overwhelmed because of the timing wasn't right. However, after a few weeks I started to get excited about having another baby all over again. Since after all when I found out I was pregnant, Grace was 8 months old. I just got over having a baby and my body was just starting to get back to normal.
    This pregnancy has been very different than the other two pregnancies I've had in my life so I thought it would have to be a boy. I was sick only during the night for the most part of my pregnancy. Then after the first trimester my sickness went away. However I had really no cravings. However when I felt the need to snack, the only thing that was appealing to me was dil pickles and pizza. Everything else I didn't seem to feel like eating. Most of the time I had to force myself to eat something.
    Then in the middle of my second trimester I started loving cereal at first it was Honey Nut Cheerios and then it went from that to Captain Crunch Cereal. I was determined in my earlier months not to find out the sex of the baby since this pregnancy was a big surprise to me and Daddy. I stuck to that for 5 months or so.
    I had an ultra sound on my second appt. to make sure on the due date it was changed from May 23rd to May 20th. Then I had a regular ultra sound appt. back on Jan. 17th., shortly before that appt. I changed my mind about finding out because if the baby was a boy I wanted time to get clothes and such for it. Since I had nothing but baby girl clothes. I had a name picked out for a baby boy right away pretty much: Jacob Matthew and then on Jan. 17th, only 15 seconds into the ultra sound I found out I'm having a girl. I was very pleasantly surprised and so was my husband. We thought for sure it was a boy. Indeed it was a girl. I was very happy and very emotional, I cried silently as she continued to look over the baby and make sure everything was going good. After the appt. I was just very happy knowing that Grace will have a little sister to grow with and play with. Now, it's Jan. 24th and I still am not for certain on what your name is going to be. I have few names in mind. Over the weekend your Daddy and I came down to two names: Megan and Faith.
    Just not sure which one we will go with just yet. If it is Megan, it will be Megan Marie. If it is Faith, we are still undecided about a middle name that will go with the name Faith. We really like both names but we don't think they sound good together, meaning Megan Faith or Faith Megan. We have 115 days to make up our minds on your name.
    We still are trying to find a decent and yet reasonable priced crib for you and a double stroller. But other than we have a lot of clothes left over from Grace that you will be wearing. I will be getting some new outfits for you though.
    Ever since I was 21 weeks pregnant, I've been feeling you move around a lot. It is such a wonderful feeling, you are very active in there. I'm looking forward to feeling your hic-ups. I wonder a lot if you can hear your big sister when she is making a bunch of a noise. I guess only time will tell if you hear her or not. Your big sister Grace is pretty loud and a lot of fun, I won't be a bit surprised if you come out not being able to hear as well because of all of the noise your big sister Grace makes.
    I do know you will be very welcomed by your older brother and two older sisters though. I'm looking forward to the day we finally meet for the first time. I wonder what you will look like, if you will look like your sister Grace or will you have red hair like your Mommy. I'm really looking forward to seeing your face in real life for the first time. I love you very much and I'm so happy God has blessed me with another beautiful baby girl. I pray for you all the time and ask God to watch over you as you continue to grow inside of me every day. Only 115 days or less to go before you are here. I'm hoping and praying to have you on May 14th, but we will see.

    Today, I think but I'm not certain I felt hic-ups for awhile today. Which was really neat feeling. Still undecided about your name just yet.
    I'm leaning towards Megan Marie though. I think it might be either Megan or Faith. Still not sure what middle name I will chose with Faith.
    Last night I put my baby monitor on you and I can hear your heartbeat. It was so nice to hear your heartbeat at home, because usually I can just hear it when I go to the doctor's office.
    Only 112 days or less to go, I'm really looking forward to seeing your adorable face.

    I had a doctor's appt. today and your doing very well. Measuring about right on target. Your heart rate is in the 140's.
    Last night when I was watching TV in the rocking chair you were kicking or doing some kind of movement inside. That I let your brother AJ feel it and he thought it was cool. You've been very active the past couple of days. It could be because of the sugar I've been eating lately.. since it is Valentines Day.
    I'm getting very anxious and excited about seeing you. 94 days to go.

    I got your crib today along with bedding to go with it. I'm so excited. Daddy set it up in our room for the time being. You will be sharing a room with your big sister Grace, however for a little while you will be in Mommy and Daddy's room in your crib. I was so excited that I was able to get your crib today, it's georgous, it's a cherry oak crib that converts to a toddler bed and then later to a full size bed.
    You've been very active today as well.

    This morning I had a glucose test to check to make sure I don't have sugar diabeties. I think we passed, but we won't know for a little while.

    2/20/05

    Over the weekend I went shopping and got you some cute new outfits. I also purchased some extra crib sheets. I got you the cutest little pink booties. I also picked up two child gates to keep you and Grace safe. For now to keep Grace safe since she's running around wild these days and needs more room to get around the house. Sometimes I wonder if you can hear her making so much noise during the day. I've been trying to get her ready to let her know she has a little sister coming in 3 months or so. I tell her all the time there's a baby in the belly and it's her little sister.
    Now all I have left to get you is a double stroller for you and your big sister Grace, a new infant car seat, another diaper pail and a changing pad.
    As for your name, still been going back and forth on it. Thinking about Megan Marie however I keep leaning towards Faith Ann. When I finally see your face and look into your eyes I will know what your name is going to be for sure.
    You've been very active this weekend, like your doing some summer salts or something. May be your going to be a gymest or a dancer... or may be a soccer player.
    Daddy spent this afternoon re-arranging our room to make it nice for when you arrive. We have a rocking chair in the room and everything is just about ready
    The other night Daddy felt you move and he couldn't get over how strong and very active you are.
    I have this counter on my computer and every day it counts down the days, weeks, hours, minutes and seconds until you are here. Right now it says: 88 days, 12 weeks, 2 hours and 9 min. 20 sec to go. I put the counter to count down until May 14th, even though my due date is May 20th... because I really would love to have you on May 14th, but we will see what happens. When you are ready to come out, you will.

    I had a dream the other night, first one about what you would look like and all. How small and precious you are.. however I never saw what color hair you had, just that you are the most beautiful baby in the whole world and everyone kept coming up to me at church saying how beautiful and adorable you are. They just couldn't get over how much God blessed me with two beautiful girls as precious as you and Grace are to me.

    I love you very much and I look forward to seeing your little face, eyes, nose, lips, ears, hands, toes, feet, fingers and just seeing you for the first time... I'm so in love with you already and I haven't even met you yet.
    I know you love being inside of me.. I love feeling you every day and every night.. however I just long to see you and meet you face to face and to see this wonderful baby that was inside of me. This beautiful baby girl that God has blessed me with. You are truly a blessing from God and baby that God planned for me to have. I know God has a special plan for you in this world.

    I love you so much... your Mommy!!

    2-21-05 - 27 Weeks!! Almost 7 months pregnant!! 87 Days or less to go!!!

    Today I went to the dentist office and had a cleaning done and my mouth is really hurting me. Then we went to Babies R' Us and got a stroller, car seat and changing pad for you. Now we officially have everything all ready to go for when you arrive. Your brother AJ helped me unload everything into the house, he's a great helper. He really can't wait to meet you as well.
    Your Daddy is away for work in Buffalo for the whole week. So it's just me, you, Grace and AJ for the week until Friday when your Daddy comes home. Today was the first time we went into a baby store and didn't buy you an outfit. Mommy is trying to do a little better on not spending to much money so that Daddy won't get mad. Because I really want to stay home after you are born and not return back to work. I really want the best for you and I'm trying my best to get Daddy to agree to letting me stay home with you. I really don't want to take you to daycare or Grace for that matter. I want to spend every waking moment with you. I really feel watching you grow up and not missing out on a thing is a lot more rewarding then working part time or full time. I've been praying that God will some how soften up Daddy's heart towards it.
    I love you so much and I don't want to take another baby to daycare and let some stranger raise you and watch all of your firsts. I want to be there for everything. I'm going to try my best not to let that happen.
    I'm sorry if I was a little stressed out this evening.. I was hurting in pain from my mouth being sore from the teeth cleaning and then I went over to Grandma's house for dinner. Grace was all over the place since Grandma's house really isn't baby proof and it stressed me out a lot.
    Mommy loves you a lot and I just want you to know I'm trying my best to keep my emotions in check because I don't want anything to happen to you.
    I love you... sleep tight!!!

    2-23-05 - Almost 28 weeks... only two days to go!!

    Yesterday I spent a lot of time trying to clean up snow in the drive way so I can get in and out of the drive way. Wasn't to successful at it.
    With Daddy being away out of town this week, makes me have to a lot of things I normally don't do around the house. Even though your brother AJ helped me out a lot as well.

    You've been kicking around like crazy lately. Especially on my way to work when there is music playing. I think you like music. You defnitely like listening to U2 which is Mommy's favorite bands to listen too. However I do listen to Christian music and you love that as well. Especially when I'm at church you are very active moving around.
    I love you so much... I'm glad you seem to be pretty comfortable in there. Don't get to comfortable though, almost 2 months to go.
    I promise to keep you very comfortable when you come out and are in my arms. I picked up some lighter blankets the last time I went shopping just to make sure you are comfortable and nice warm and snug.

    2/25/05 - 28 WEEKS!!! Yes!! 7 Months Pregnant, third trimester!!!

    It won't be long now.. only 2 months or less to go!!! I'm sure you can't wait to finally come out and meet me and Daddy.. not to mention your brother and two sisters.
    You've been very active today, probably because Mom has been eating M&M candies. I love those!! Sorry!! I'm addicted to chocolate... just wait and until you taste it for the first time you'll know how I feel. Your Daddy is coming home today after being gone this whole week for work. So finally Mommy can rest and relax more and Daddy can help out around the house.

    I noticed the other night when I was putting a new crib sheet on your crib that all of your bedding smelt like cigarette smoke. Which is disgusting.
    so I have to air out your mattress and hope that the smell goes away. Else I will be buying a brand new mattress. I couldn't afford to buy a whole new crib so I got a used crib with mattress, if I smelt that smell when I was at the store I wouldn't even brought the mattress that came with the crib. Mommy really can't stand the smell of cigarette smoke. It's so bad that every time your older sister comes for the weekend I want her to take a shower that night and put clean clothes on because her Mommy smokes and you can smell it on her when she comes for the weekend.

    This weekend your older sister Shelby will be here. I'm really looking forward to you finally meeting her and your little sister Grace as well.
    It will be fun when you are finally here because there will be 4 girls and just 2 boys in the house!!! I can't wait until all of you are older and then we can go on shopping trips to Chicago and other places just to go shopping.

    I better get going and start doing some more house work since I want the house clean before Daddy gets home. I love you very much!! Only 83 days or less to go!!!

    3/4/05 - 29 Weeks Pregnant, only less than 76 days to go!!

    Hello my little one, guess what.. this week I finally decided on your name.. yep finally. Your name will be Megan Marie (Meg for short). I've been debating it long enough. I've always loved the name Megan even before I had your big sister Grace. However I was just on the fence because of a very silly reason.. our next door neighbor next to us, the Mom's name is Grace and her daughter's name is Megan. I just didn't want them to think we are naming you after them because we are not.
    I do like our neighbors very much, but I always wanted a little girl of my own named Megan. This week I ordered a hat, booties, blanket and some thing else with your name on it. I can't wait until your big day Birthday arrives and I can put a pink hat on your head that says your name on it. I'm really looking forward to it.
    Well today I felt a little strange like sick but it finally went away... I hope your ok in there. I felt you move a lot today. Last night I actually felt a foot or hand stick out of my belly, it was so neat to feel how small your hand or foot is.
    I wish I could say I've been dreaming about you and what you are going to look like but I haven't. I want to dream and picture what your little adorable face is going to look like and what color hair you will have if any hair at all, but nothing. I long for the day I see you face to face. I know it's almost here but I just wish it was tonight. I think I want you out sooner because I'm all ready to go, I have everything I need pretty much. Of course you can always use some more cute adorable pink outfits and dresses.. never enough pink clothes!!!
    I've been trying to tell your big sister Gracey that she has a little sister on the way but she really doesn't understand yet. I know she will be so thrilled once you are here and she has someone to play with other than me, Daddy, AJ and Shelby.

    Did I tell you, your Mommy will be turning 30 yrs. old before you are born next month. I've been kind of sad about it in a way, because I feel like I haven't accomplished as much as I wanted to and yet I will be 30 very soon. I know I have accomplished a lot though. Married to a wonderful christian husband, soon to have 3 girls and one boy. Let's not forget Ashley and Tux (our cats) and living in a nice neighborhood and safe city yet crowded. I'm really looking forward to teaching you all about Jesus and having a personal relationship with him, because it is the most important purpose of life is to have a loving relationship with God.
    Every night I pray over my belly and ask God to bless you and watch over and keep you in good health and to also have a vision or will for your life. I truly believe everyone has a calling from God and I really feel that way about you since you weren't planned, you were planned by God and not Mommy and Daddy. I know God has something special instore for you in this life and I plan to make sure I help raise you in the right direction to fullfill God's plan for you. I love you so much and I'm so happy to be having another baby girl of my very own.
    Even when I was at a very young age I often wondered what it would be like to have a girl of my own and now I'm so blessed to be able to have two of my very own. I feel so blessed from God that it brings tears to my eyes when I think he chose me to have this precious baby girl. You truly are a blessing in my life and you are not here by a mistake, you are here because God wanted you here and because you have a Mommy and Daddy who loves you very deeply.

    Ok now for some fun stuff you might like to read later down the road when you are older and able to read this journal...
    My cravings: Captan Crunch Cereal, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with ham, M&M's, Little Ceasers Pizza, Thai Food, Crab Legs and I think that is about it.
    Gas Prices are: $2.06 a gallon
    Milk is: $1.99 a gallon
    Bottled Pop from a vending machine is: $1.30

    Not sure what else to tell you at this point... If I think of other things, I will write them down as I go further along.
    I'm going to bed, I need some rest, I'm very tired today.

    3/11/05 - 30 Weeks Pregnant and 70 Days or less to GO!!

    I had a doctor's appt. on Monday and it went well. We heard your little heartbeat and everything is measuring good. I gained 5 lbs since my last appt., which is good.

    This week I went and got a new crib mattress for you. The one we got that came with the crib smelled of cigarette smoke and I don't want you breathing in fumes like that. I tried everything to get the smell out and nothing worked. So I bought a new one. I have everything all set up for you now... nothing else left to get really. Of course I love buying new outfits for you when I see one I like a lot.
    I even have your diapers already in the diaper stacker and ready to go.

    Your Daddy has been traveling for work this whole week so he wasn't around to help out. So if you felt some stress in there, it's because it is hard doing everything all week long without any help. I'm sorry if I made it uncomfortable for you.

    Your Uncle Shawn had major surgery on his lungs this week so I've been worried and stressed out on that as well. It's been a rough week altogether.

    I love you and not to much longer to go.. 9 weeks or less to go!!!! I can't wait to see you.. it's coming up fast. I wish it was faster though.
    Only 6 weeks left before I'm on my maternity leave from work.. I'm looking forward to resting a little more. At least I hope I get to rest a little more, I will have Grace though. So we will see how that goes.

    I love you very much!!!!! I really can't wait to meet you for the first time my little meg bug!! Hey a new nick name I thought of this week.
