finally gotcha!!

Caught some major acrobatics this morning! Baby was up all night last night and had the hiccups for the first time, it was pretty neat. Enjoy!

Tuesday, May 25, 2010


It's nice enough to be outside without the sun beating down on me. So baby and I decided to sit outside for a little bit and enjoy nature.

day one

It's my first day of summer vacation from work and I've managed to accomplish eating breakfast, taking a 2 hour nap, taking a shower, and eating lunch. I'm so bored already! I know poor me, boo hoo!

Monday, May 24, 2010


My doc apt. was canceled today and rescheduled for Thursday. I'm so bummed! And this hot weather really sucks. I can't be out in it without having a hard time breathing.

28 weeks-hello third trimester!

I am so excited that today is the first day of my 3rd and final trimester. I feel like a cow at times and can't imagine getting any bigger. I now have to roll off the couch to get up, and before I know it, I'll be doing the waddle walk. Nonetheless it's a celebration and I am very excited to be here. I have my doc apt on Monday, so I will post stats after that apt.

It started...

Nesting that is. B started to clean out the baby's room after my constant nagging (hallelujah). So what else is left to do in this big empty space but lay out the baby stuff we have received and look at it all tenderly. We still have some things in the garage to be brought up, but that can wait. Next it hanging the curtains, putting together the crib, finding a dresser that will also function as a changing table, and decorating the space (hello IKEA!)

5 years

Today B and I celebrate 5 years together. I know it may be cheesy to celebrate this when it's not a wedding anniversary, but I love to recognize all special moments and this is one of them. We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Sopra in Lake Geneva tonight and I got some rubbies for my body parts that are ready to fall off.

This picture hangs at my work and it is the first picture that was taken of B and I, so it is very special to us. Happy 5 years my sweetheart, I love you DUZO!


I passed the dreaded 3 hour glucose test!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't be more happier, yay for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mother's Day

So my sweetie surprised me with beautiful pink roses for my first Mother's Day. The best thing that B got me, was a Mother's Day card from the baby. He even wrote "momie" on the envelope because you know the baby doesn't know how to spell yet. On the inside was written the most heartfelt and funny message I have ever read. I cried for a few minutes and will cherish those words forever!


I have been having the darnedest time trying to catch baby on camera doing acrobatics. While I was doing my glucose test this weekend, I caught a little action on video. Of course Baby was going bonkers in my belly before hand and it only calmed down when I tried to video it. You can see a quick jab on the right side after a few seconds. I am on a mission to get the big stuff on camera one of these days.

glucose blah!

This morning I went in for my 3 hour glucose test, it was pretty awful. They drew my blood as a baseline, then gave me 100 grams to glucose to drink BARF! I sat there for an hour almost in an unconscious state from the sugar. They drew my blood again and I mentioned that I wasn't feeling great, so the sweet nurse gave me a private room to lay down in for the next 2 hours. That was heaven, I had a bed, TV, and ice-chips. I had my blood drawn 2 more times over the next two hours, and finally was released to go home and eat. I had not eaten or had anything to drink since 8pm the night before and left the hospital at 12:15 the next afternoon.

My whole day was thrown off and I felt like poop. I will get the results on Monday so hopefully I passed this time. Wish me luck.

Friday, May 7, 2010


My favorite part of the day is when I just start to wake up and I'm just lying in bed feeling my precious baby moving inside me. I just lay there hugging my buddah and envision holding my little one.

Thursday, May 6, 2010


So I failed my 1 hour glucose test. My number was 154. Now I have to go torture myself without food and water after midnight Friday night to do the 3 hour glucose test on Saturday. BOOO!

nursery inspiration

I have fallen in love with the colors of this nursery from wow, a baby!. I am going to use it as my inspiration for mine. My furniture is not white, but rather oak colored but it will still look super cute. I will be doing white, turquoise, and yellow with vintage details. I can't wait to get started. We are going to begin clearing out the baby's room Thursday night.


I got this brand new unopened breast pump from a friend at work that bought 2 of them for a friend of hers that decided she didn't want them. The girl I got it from, knows someone that works at Medela so she got it for a steal herself. This normally runs for $265 and I got it for $125, I am sooooo excited. I had to open it all and look at it like a kid at Christmas, except now I get excited about breast pumps!

Lazy Day

B and I decided to go up to Lake Geneva for a nice Sunday stroll through some shops and along the streets. It was the perfect relaxing Sunday!
