Aches and Pains

I know that all pregnant women have them but mine have just started to roll in. My back is starting to hurt from carrying around this belly but thats alright. Sleep has been okay but not as great as it use to be. Along with getting up numerous times I also cant fall back asleep because i feel like i have mini earthquakes in my stomach which is the greatest feeling ever, even if it is at 4 am!

I am now able to see my shirt move when hes kicking which is odd but im sure the start of what i will see to come in the future. I definately dont walk fast by any means but then again I never really did. Im enjoying getting ready for the holidays and our very fast approaching trip back home for Thanksgiving.

As everything approaches so quickly it makes me extremely nervous about labor & his birth. Ive had some physical problems along the way which have been discussed with my doctor. My chances of having a c-section are back to normal so I am unsure of what will happen. Since everything that has occurred so far and Im still considered high risk, i would rather opt for the c-section because i still have underlying problems that my doctor cannot figure out until after he is born. As each day gets closer, i get more anxious then before and I know others feel this anxiety but up that by 100% and that is mine. I hope and pray everyday that i just go about the day without worrying about it but no matter what its in the back of my mind. Im hoping for the best for both of us!

Things are coming along!

First of all, on saturday we hit double digits until my due date. I had a panic attack at first because i feel very disorganized and like i want to clean and redo everything. I think this is the beginning of nesting for me. I can't truly fix up or rearrange the guest room into his nursery because its possible that we may move either way whether it be an upgrade at our current place or moving into a house. Im pulling for a house but we will see what happens.

So with that in mind we ordered our crib and dresser weeks ago. Each one was a gift from my parents and Hubbys mom. We purchased a glider rocker off of craigslist and it needs to be recovered because I dont think pink will work for him or I. Which is perfectly fine because we assumed this either way. So now im on the hunt for some fabric. Our crib and dresser is from Baby Dream Serenity line. We ordered it in cherry and it will take 8-12 weeks to come in.

I just scored an amazing deal on our bedding which is Lambs & Ivy Classic Sage. We purchased it brand new for half price off of Ebay which you have to love. I cannot wait for it to come in. When we were out over the weekend we went to Tj Maxx and Home goods and found a lamp for his nursery. However we cannot find a picture online at all. Its extremely similar to the picture above except that the base and trim on the shade is chocolate brown. Otherwise, its identical. So this purchase saved us $40 off his matching lamp.

Once we know if were staying or going we can work around the room to put in some other items and even look for wall art and decals. If you have any ideas or suggestions feel free to leave them below.

No news is good news

Nothing new to report really. Im exhausted constantly! That isnt news i have felt this way pretty much the whole pregnancy. I got the H1N1 shot today. Im glad i no longer have to be irritated to get it or etc. I felt pretty unsure of the whole thing but felt pushed into it so I got it. If i never hear about it again i will be so grateful. Our little boy is more active these days. He definately moves more after I eat but i am starting to feel him at other times too. He especially likes to kick my bladder! LOL. He thinks hes a comedian i guess.

I had a great birthday other than throwing up that morning! I cant believe we will be home in a few weeks and its going to go by so fast cause we will only be home for like 3 or 4 days. Ive started Christmas shopping and im glad since some things i need to take home in a few weeks. My next appointment isnt until the 23rd so I have quite a bit to go yet before any more news. At that appointment i will be tested for GD so well see how that goes. Ive heard that it tastes awful but well see i guess. Ive drank worse things for other tests. Thats it for now!!
