Dorian is 5

On December 9th my little boy turned 5 years old. He is just growing up. We had his birthday party at pump it up (www.pumpitupparty.com). It was perfect. He played so hard. All of the kids enjoyed it.

Well along with 5 came a loose tooth. He came home yesterday and said mom I have bad news. I said what? He said my tooth can move LOL. But that's not better than what he told my mom. He got in her car earlier yesterday and told her "Grandma guess what?..My tooth came out and I put it back in" ROFL. What he really meant was he pushed it outward with his tongue and then moved it back in place. Kids are too funny.

Last week


Well last week Dorian, my oldest got sick. It started with a runny nose and then a cough. Monday night I heard him whinning in his sleep. When I checked on him he had a 99.9 fever and he was breathing fast. I woke him up and he said his chest was hurting. Tuesday morning I took him to the doctor. He was diagnosed with Acute Broncitis and childhood asthma. My poor baby has to travel with a nebulizer. Last week I stayed home with him and he had to have breathing treatments every 4 hours. At his recheck the doctor said he was doing great and so she's wheening him off the neb. He is now using it every 8 hours and then after 5 days he goes to every 12 hours and then off. I really hope he grows out of this.

It's Official!!!

Well last time I told you I had an ultrasound, they were not 100% sure of the sex of the baby. They said about 90% girl but the babies legs were crossed. Well last Monday I went for my 24 week check-up and I was able to get another ultrasound done. This time the babies legs were wide open lol. It's officially 100% A GIRL!!!!!

Now off to shopping. I've already done some baby registries. I'm trying to stay out of the store but I don't know how much longer I can wait lol.

3D Ultrasound

I've been thinking of getting a 3D ultrasound. I'm not sure if I really want to or not. Is it really worth it? Does it take away the surprise? Or does it make you more anxious? Just some thoughts going through my head today.

Got the ultrasound

Ultrasound was Monday. The baby decided to have it's legs crossed so the ultrasound tech couldn't see the babies gender. I ended up going along to complete the rest of my 20 week visit and then my midwife told me to stick around a little longer to get another quick ultrasound done incase the baby had moved around some. When I got in there and got on the table for the second ultrasound of the day, the baby was moving all around and wouldn't be still lol. this time it's legs were straight up in the air. Ankles were still crossed, but since the tech didn't see any boy parts hanging she was abot 90 percent sure that we are having a GIRL!!!!! I will get another scan done in 4 weeks just to confirm 100% but she's quite sure it's a girl.

Dorian's reaction to the ultrasound:
Well Kyle stayed home and went to the ultrasound with me. We picked Dorian up early to come with us. He was so excited! When we got in the room he was waiting to see if he was gonna have a baby sister or brother. He really wants a sister. When the screen started showing the baby he was looking like Whats That? LOL He backed up from the screen and then he sat down and he said "That's not a sister that's a dinosaur"! ROFL

What are we having?

It's almost time to find out what we are having? Is it a boy? Is it a girl? We don't know, but what we do know is it's a baby LOL. Ok that was lame but I had to say it. Anyway, Monday October 12th is the big day. Kyle and Dorian will join me in the ultrasound. I know that Kyle and I are excited and I know Dorian will be super excited. He always want to know what the baby is doing, so seeing the baby moving around on the monitor will amaze him.

Well, Stay tuned to find out the news!!! :)

Yep..I fell

Well, as you've probably heard, we had some pretty hard rain and bad flooding in GA. In my area, most of the streets were blocked off because of flood damage and our water main busted and we didn't have water for 2 days. Anyway, my family and I went to a friends house where they still had water and we took showers. We hung out there for a while, ate dinner and the guys played madden. Well, me and Dorian we walking down the stairs and we get to the last maybe 5 steps and I all of a sudden find myself falling. I slid down the steps and landed on my butt lol. It wasn't a bad fall or anything, but my butt was sore hahahaha. There are no worries since I didn't fall on my stomach.

busy baby

Yesterday I went to the doctor for my 16 week check up. Of course they did the blood work and also I got to hear the babies heartbeat again. This time it was funny. The baby kept moving. The midwife would find the heartbeat, we would listen for a few second and then hear the swishing sound. That was the baby moving to a new position. She'd find the heartbeat again and the baby would move again. lol. She said I have a very active baby in there which is a good thing. I can't wait to really feel the baby move. I've only felt it one time and that was last week.

Babies First Kicks

On yesterday, Thursday September 10th at around 6:50 pm, I felt the babies first kicks. I am 15 weeks pregnant. I thought I had felt kicks before but was unsure, but this time I am definately sure. It lasted for about 3 minutes. Later, I felt them again and then no more for the night. I don't remember how early it was when I felt Dorian kicking. I think it was around 16 weeks. I know one thing. That little boy kicked all the way up to delivery and on the delivery day he was kicking so much the moniters were coming off my belly lol.

When to tell

Ok..I've been holding out at work about telling people I'm pregnant. I have been wearing nice button down shirts that are a size too big in order to not show my belly. Well, I've run out of clothes that are loose fitting. Today I wore one of my regular shirts and it shows my belly. I'm 13 weeks today and I'm at the point where I don't care if they notice. I'm not going to go around telling people, but if they ask me I'll say yep I'm pregnant. Only 3 people actually know because I told them.

So when did you start to tell people? work/Family/Friends?

Crazy Dreams

Ok we all dream right? I for one am a dreamer. I don't think I sleep through the night without atleast dreaming about something even if I can't remember what it is.

Well you know when you are pregnant you have even more dreams..weird dreams. I had a dream last night that made absolutely no since at all. I was dreaming we were in some country town walking down the street. It was me, Kyle (hubby), and some more friends. We were looking at elementary schools. We went into several different schools and their classes were so small. To the point where some of the kids had to bring blankets to sit on in a corner. Like I said, this makes no since at all LOL. You know normally we don't remember the dumb dreams..but I guess when you're pregnant, you remember everything. Weird.

Dr. Appointment Today

Today I had my big Dr. appointment. I got to hear the heartbeat. It was a beautiful sound. It didn't take anytime for them to find it either. They have a theory in the dr. office that if it doesn't take a long time to find the heartbeat, it's a girl. Is that theory right? We shall see :).

My son

Ok, you know I have a 4 year old (Dorian)..we call him DJ. Yesterday it was raining and I stepped outside on the porch. He joined me and hugged me..really it was more of my belly than me LOL. Anyway, he asked was his baby sister afraid of the rain ROFL. He said.."is she scared?" He cracks me up. I'm like first of all we don't even know if it's a she hahahaha.

Back to work

Well I had been laid off, but my job called me back to work as a contractor until the end of the year. Pretty cool!!! I'm very excited.

Since at work I've done ok with the nausea. I eat a good breakfast and have an early lunch. By the end of the day though I'm hungry. Tuesday was my first day back and when I got home I was sick. I couldn't even eat dinner. Yesterday I did pretty good. We shall see how today goes.

Anyway, I'm 11 weeks and 1 day. My stomach looks like it too. I kind of look pregnant now depending on what I wear. Noone knows at work but 2 of my buddies. I'm sure people will be asking soon though cuz I can tell today..especially cuz I just ate lunch LOL.

I craved for 3 things today: Applebees, Copelands, and Swapna (Indian cuisine). I chose swapna cuz I wanted their buttered chicken. I had 2 plates of that and potatoes. I'm stuffed to the max.

Well that's all for today. More about my pregnant journey coming soon.

10 weeks and 2 days


Well Today is Friday..yay!!!! I am 10 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I've been ok mostly today, but I'm starting to feel a little nausea coming on. I hope it passes because I'm dancing at a youth event tonight. Yep, I'm still dancing, but not as much. Doctor said I can since it's something I was doing before I got pregnant. With my first child, I danced until I was 4 months pregnant. I don't know if I'll go that long with this one. We shall see. Anyway, I finally got a new picture up of my belly. Here ya go.

How I'm feeling

Well, I've been feeling ok the past couple of days. I did have some morning sickness, but not as bad as it had been before. Seems like things are calming down, but I don't want to speak too soon. My belly s growing too. Pants are getting a little tighter lol. Wednesday will be 10 weeks...WOW!!! I'll take a photo and post a pic of my belly.

Dorian is still excited. This morning when I was getting him ready for school he was having a conversation with my belly. He was like.."Hey baby...I like ya" ROFL. I just shook my head. Then he asked if my belly hurts. He's always concerned about if it hurts or not.

Anyway, that's all for now. More updates and photos to come.

Morning Sickness

Yesterday was a horrible day. I woke up to nausea and vomiting. I spent all day back and forth to the bathroom being sick. I couldn't keep any food down. It was so frustrating and I can't wait for this part of the pregnancy is over. They say it gets better after the first trimester. I really hope so. I'm 9 weeks tomorrow so I'm gettig close to the second trimester. From what I can remember with my first child I still had some morning sickness in the second trimester, but not as bad. We shall see.

Today is a little better. My breakfast stayed down..yayyy!!! I'm just chilling out taking things one step at a time.
