Family Baby Shower

We had a wonderful family baby shower at John Chestnut SR Park in Palm Harbor. It was a little warm out, but we had a nice breeze off the water. The kids seemed to have a blast on the play ground and it was so amazing to catch up with long lost friends. If I could have extended the day, I would have. I wish it could have lasted longer so that I could have spent more time with everyone. I miss everyone so much. It's amazing how fast time flies and how months can turn into years...Thank you everyone for attending. It meant the world to Bobby and I.

34 Week OB Appt

Well I have come down with my first cold :( I did so well this whole 8 months combatting colds, but this one got me. I met Dr. Marks today (the only male dr) and he was very quirky...I thought he had a great sense of humor and said that since I'm this far along, it's ok for me to take a few recommended medicines to fight the symptoms. I'm going to take Actifed and Robitussin and hopefully that will work.

Everything seems to be going pretty well though. Baby seems healthy and so is my blood pressure. They took more blood from me for another iron screening. Bobby was wonderful, he skipped school today, just to hold my hand and make sure I don't pass out. I did have some bacteria in my urine which could be the beginning of an I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's not. They are sending it out to the lab to verify. I've been drinking lots of water, cranberry juice and eating yogurt (hoping to avoid any infections). I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the remainder of my pregnancy stays healthy. Hopefully a good iron count and no infections. We have 6 weeks left until our due date and realistically can be having a baby anytime between 3-7 weeks! So things are getting pretty exciting. Tomorrow we are taking our New Born Care Class and on Wed. we are meeting Mya's pediatrician: Dr. Pham with Pediatric Specialists. I will keep you posted as we move through the week.

Happy Mother's Day

Baby Mya

Looking round....32 Weeks preggo

Baby Belle...
I had a relaxing pre-mother's day. Bobby made me breakfast on Saturday and bought me flowers. On Sunday, we went to Honeymoon Island and enjoyed the beautiful Florida weather. We are having dinner with mom shortly. Bobby is working the nursery closet and he just finished putting the cradle together, so that should be a great ending of a perfect day!

7 Months-8months Preggo Photo

Here I am at the Relay for Life in New Port Richey on April 30th sporting my 7/8 month pregnant belly. Things seem to be going well. I had my regular Dr. visit on May 3rd and she had no complaints. The baby's heart rate was at 140bpm, my blood pressure is low and I look great. So all good news! Sadly, I am getting more and more tired. That weekend I spent most of my time napping and I even had my first Pre-Natal massage. It was so wonderful! Ci Ci took excellent care of me and I felt so relaxed when I was done. Thanks to Pam Reimer for giving me this massage as a baby shower present, It was one of the best gifts a friend could give (especially when you are getting this BIG and the temp. keeps rising uncomfortable).
