26 weeks

* This week I won't be posting a picture. Just what my baby looks like in belly.

Josh left for New Orleans and it's just me so no picture. It's OK I feel really big anyway I'll spare you the ohhhh's and aaaaa's. So I think I'm back on track with weeks except that I just told my doctor I was 27 weeks and I had to look in my phone to see how far along I am.  I got a phone call from my doctor saying I passed the glucose test with great numbers. I almost cried. To not have to go to another doctor and check my blood every 4 hours and eat like a bird, heck yeah I'll take it. Then she said but the bad news is you have to re take 3 hour test. Well I went nuts!!! They said they gave me test early so they have to test at normal time. I believe normal time is 26 weeks and I was 25 weeks and 1 day. Will it really make a difference.   I called my regular doctor instead hopefully she will have some good news for me.  On Saturday I was so emotional I cried all day. I don't know why this is happening this time but they say that every pregnancy is different. I feel great but am getting tired and emotional. I'm actually not bull$&@()ing with anyone. Things I would keep to myself lately I just blurt it out. I don't think that's a bad thing but people probably  think I'm a little mean.

Items I can't live without part 2

I am so happy I bought this LeSportsac backpack to replace my old baby bag.  When I was becoming a new mom I was so excited to get my Kate Spade 2 handle baby bag at a sample sale.  Not thinking that it wasn't so pratical.  Now that I am all about convience I'm so happy to get this back pack.  This frees up both of my hands.  It's not a typical baby bag but has so many compartments it's perfect.  I love my new outlook on convience.  Kate Spade I do love your bag and it worked for us for 2 years.  Thanks!

25 weeks! Now back to adding correctly

** Yes I already brought you through the whole wrong week situation.  So this should say 25 weeks and the pictures just keep getting worse!

Whew rough weekend. Sunday was Londyn 2nd birthday. I can't believe how fast it goes. She's getting so big and talking up a storm. Of course I always say never again when I do these party's but the next year rolls around & here I am again. I was up till 2 am Saturday and up at 6 am finishing party stuff. I don't think I sat down until 3 on Sunday. Sorry little lady I probably should have relaxed so you relaxed.   We are also having issues with the new house we found. I'll be really bummed if he doesn't accept our offer. I've been picturing my new family of 4 plus Murphy in this house everyday. I really hope we get it & Josh fixes it up really nice.   Anyway like the book the secret says be positive and just keep telling the universe what you want. So this house is ours I can't wait to move in!!!  On another note I failed my diabetes test. I go back on Friday to retake the test. For the love of food I hope I don't have it again. I tried to diet yesterday & almost cried I was so hungry. Only plus is losing weight.

24 weeks. LOST verbiage

* So I can add huh  4 X 6 = 24 not 26

So I'm not sure what happened. Ever since I went back to make changes since I thought I was 27 weeks I lost my 6 month post. I can't even remember much of anything right now so all you will see is a picture.

Products I won't live without this time

Being that it is my second time around there are some products I will change.  The saying is right you live & you learn.  I'm very happy it's another girl I really don't need much this time around but the below is what I can think of so far that I am replacing with the older products.

* Born Free bottles
I have been washing Dr Brown bottles for 2 years!! Josh and I use to call them science projects.  Londyn started with Advent but she was getting air bubbles.  This time I hope baby #2 is ok with these bottles, less to clean.

* Swaddles
Josh was always the best at swaddling the baby like a little burrito that would stay throughout the night.  I was horrible & always worried about if she was too hot or too cold, not looking forward to that.  After my swaddling days I realized they sold ones that had Velcro & stayed put.  I already purchased one, zebra so not me but better then the stupid flowers or plain ones.  This one is a little different it has a zipper they look really uncomfortable.

* New baby bag - ERGObaby Organic backpack
Of course I'm in fashion & being my first baby I had to be stylish.  I purchased a Kate Spade - from sample sale - baby bag.  Don't get me wrong it was perfect but now up to 2 years it isn't practical especially when I have to lug around 2 kids. I need a backpack and believe it or not they don't really sell them.  I found this one that serves as a backpack and a baby holder.  You can also buy it just as a backpack baby bag.  I'm excited to save up some money & purchase it.  It's all about being convenient the second time around.

23 weeks

* Londyn now knows the drill, I say picture and she runs in.  This time she was more interested in having a piece of cheese so that's why she's so far away.  Wow my handwriting is horrible it says BYE BYE BACTERIA!  The camera does add some weight or is that TV camera.

This week has had it's up and downs. I'm happy to report that my results came back negative for my uriplasma. Which hopefully means that you baby won't be arriving early and hopefully won't be so tiny, even though my Londyn was still perfect. I had a bad stomach bug on Tuesday early morning I thought I was going into labor my stomach hurt so much.  So I stayed home from work today.   I broke down 2 times today. I have been very emotional so you will probably laugh as to why I was crying. I went to the $1 store, let's hope they are still around when you go shopping.   This women was yelling at her boy who was about 12. Over and over but about nothing important.  Now I don't disagree with yelling buy you can tell that it wasn't the first time this kid experienced this yelling and he looked so sad.   I just wondered how many times she treated the boy like this it was heartbreaking. Anyway other then that it's my last week to eat like a pig before I take my diabetes test. May e I won't get it!! Pray pray  Our house in under contract today. Bring on the stress!!! Hope not to be homeless for a long time.
