Progress..Slowly but Surely..

27 09 2010

I went to the doctor today and everything is doing just fine, so that is very good. I found out that I am now 1cm dilated and 75% effaced, so that is definitely progress from last week. I am so ready to be back to normal and I am excited to see my little boy. I’m 37 weeks and 2 days today, so as of this past Saturday, I am now technically what they call “term,” so that is exciting as well. Is is becoming almost impossible to stand or walk around for too long and I am constantly running to the bathroom, but I guess this is all part of the journey. In some ways it’s sad that it’s almost over and then other ways it will be great to be done.


I have less than a month

20 09 2010

My due date is only 26 days away. I honestly can’t believe it! I’ve been thinking about the lovely day when I found out that I was pregnant. It seems like such a long time ago and now there’s only a little time left! I’m getting pretty excited, even though I am also a little nervous and scared. And the whole thought of labor is really starting to freak me out! I know it’s not going to be as bad as I think it’s going to be, but I can’t help but think that it is. Not exactly something I planned to do at the age of 19. Thank goodness my mom is going to be with me during my labor and delivery or else I’d be all alone and I don’t know what I would do.

I’m still trying to fix things and make things work out. I don’t know if everything will work out in the end, but I really hope it will. I hate being/feeling all alone. I would rather not be a single mom for the rest of my life and little Junior needs his daddy in the picture. So I am trying my best to get everything in order. However, I do know that I can’t fix everything, so I’m not going to stress over it. I’m just going to try my best.

Since I haven’t really updated about my life in a while, I’m going to explain what’s been going on in our lives. I’ve been working on my school work as best as I can. Online classes are kicking my butt. They’re a pain and in my opinion, harder than regular in-class classes because you have to make sure you click everything and get things sent in at the right time. If you don’t click all of the links, you could miss part of the assignment and not get points for something just because you didn’t see it. I also hate staying home all the time. Not that I like going into campus to go to classes any better, but it’s hard to get any motivation when you are staying at home working all the time. I only like one of my classes so that could be part of my problem as well. The other three classes get on my nerves and they are not fun at all. I hardly understand what’s going on in them. But oh well, I guess I’ll get over it and get all of my classes done. Sometimes I wish it were still summer, even though I have been enjoying this nice weather.

I have a doctor appointment tomorrow and since I’m so close to my due date, I go every week now. At my appointment last week I wasn’t dilated any but I was just about 50% effaced, which means that I am making progress so that little Junior can enter the world very soon! Tomorrow I’ll see if I’ve made any more progress. I am so ready to have this baby it’s not even funny. I feel like I’m about to burst at the seams. I’ve given the little guy permission to come 2 weeks early (coming at 38 weeks), since 37 weeks is technically full term. But of course he will come when he is done and ready and completely “baked,” as they like to call it, haha.

I am also getting my hair cut tomorrow. I’m not sure what I’m going to do exactly probably just a trim on the ends and then major work to my bangs because they are getting so long, it’s getting really ridiculous. I kind of miss my short hair because it was so much easier to do something with, but I was growing it long because Jon and I were looking at some old pictures and I started missing my long hair too. So he told me to grow it out again and that’s what I’m doing. And once all of the old nasty black color grows out of my hair, I’m planning on putting my beautiful red tints back into my hair, because I miss them.

The other day, I had my little neighborhood baby shower, that my neighbor Stephanie put on for me. I got some more things that I needed and now my little boy is officially spoiled and he’s not even here yet. I am getting jealous of all of his cool new things, haha.

Basketball belly..

14 09 2010

So it now looks like I went to Wal-mart and bought a basketball and stuck it in my shirt. I am very “round” and it is very hard to do a ton of things now. Examples are seeing my feet, shaving my legs, finding things to wear, and picking things up off the ground. I am so ready to get my body back, but for now I am stuck with this very active and kicking “basketball.”

Yes I had just woken up, so I am sporting the no make-up look! haha. But this is an example of how clothes don’t fit me anymore.

Picture time.

So I was feeling creative and I felt like adding stuff to a picture. This is me at around 33 1/2 weeks!
