Bed Time

Well I should be going to bed, but I really don't want the task of trying to get comfy....
So I'm sitting on the floor, which actually doesn't feel bad. I will soon go to the futon couch that's downstairs and sleep..oh how I am not looking forward to sleeping!
However I am looking forward to that doctors appointment tomorrow at ten!
Keep you all posted!


I still have my belly button and I'm excited about that!
I really can't wait until I can sleep on my stomach!
I HATE when dogs lick.
I watch Law & Order ALL day long! No JOKE!

That's it.

Who do you bank with and do you like them, or are you thinking of changing?
We currently have WaMu, which I have used since 2003. Since they have been bought out by Chase, I think I'm starting to NOT like them. I used to love them, and now I'm just annoyed. I really would like to switch banks.
I talked to Michelle about Coast Hills Credit Union, which so far online I like what they have to offer.
I was wondering what other banks people use. (I REFUSE to use Bank of America).

Thank you!

Matt is in LA with Dennis & Michelle for I.A.'s last show. I am just chillin, doing work actually. I worked about 4 hours this evening, which is good! I am also watching Law & Order and sitting in the worst chair for my back! I am in so much pain in my back and stomach that I seriously think I became numb and it doesn't hurt anymore!
Anyway, I don't want to go to bed yet cause I want to stay up as late as possible and I know Matt will be calling I don't want to go to bed and then get awaken by his call.

Danielle and I hung out today. It was fun. We went and got pedi/mani's. Then we went to the mall (if you can even call it that!) and had Hot Dog on a Stick (Yum). Danielle did some shopping, I did some people watching.

Anyway.. nothing much has changed in the past few days. My next doctors appointment is Thursday at 10:15.

I will be 37 weeks tomorrow. CRAZY.

What is yours?!?

Can't sleep.

So I've been up since 4:45, really not cool. I am really tired but I CAN'T fall asleep!

Here are some pictures yesterday!
(Pretty much if you read Danielle's blog, they will be the same!)
My feet are dirty because we took Gibby, Lucy, Bentley, and Daisy to the dog park and it was pretty much a MUD hole. Gibby decided to LAY in it! She was really bad and not listening and I had to chase her with flip flops mud! It smelt like poop, it was pretty much gross, but I know the dogs had a really good time, as did me, Danielle, and Lori.
Yesterday was good.
Went to bfast with Wiss and got my oil changed and brakes replaced (that sucked...170 bucks later) then went to lunch with Matt (I didn't eat, I just sat there) then we sat in his truck on the bed watching people go in and out of BIG K. Then Lori met up with me and we went to the dog park and met with Danielle. Then we went to Taco Bell and talked about funny things. Then we went to motherhood (pictures) and that was fun. Got 2 bras for when I'm nursing (YIKES). Then me and Lori went to AG and met back up with Danielle at Wal Mart and returned some expaaaansive light bulbs and got some 5 dollar deals on their clothes. Then we met Andy, Matt and Wiss at Starbucks and decided to go BACK to slo and eat at Firestone. Did so and had a lot of fun. Then went to the candy shoppe that was fun. Some hippie asked Lori if she wanted his spaghetti same lady gave to him.. it was weird. Then we went back to AG and I drove Gibby home and gave her a bath at 9:45 at night, she wasn't very happy. But now she's nice and clean!
Overall had a really good day!
Now in about 3 1/2 hours I'll be at the doctors!
More to come later today.
Hope everyone has a good one.

So last night I decided I was going to put together the pack n play, which was really easy after I figured out how to get it locked and sitting up! I had to have Matt do it, but I put everything else together.
Then I put together this infant seat that we got from the Santiagos.
I also put the monitor together and put batteries in the other swing.
I got all the laundry that still needs to be washed, got my hospital bag somewhat together.
Just a bunch of random things in the room.
We got these decals that are robots to put on the walls! We will do that today. And then Matt wanted to get this IRON MAN figure it is really cool, so we bought it at Target and will look good in the room!
I just need to get this baby out so he/I can enjoy all the cool things/clothes in his room!!

I am hoping for 16 more days! Haha.

Alright well I need to shower, I smell really bad.
We are going to put together the car seat and stroller today and then put the other TV upstairs in our room and clean out more of the closet in the babies room.
I am just in a total nesting phase right now, the house has never been so clean haha.

My Appointment.

So at work today I wasn't feeling good. Probably the worst I have felt since I've been pregnant. I was having ALOT of pressure down there and I got light headed and really dizzy and I started shaking. I waited until 1:45 to call the doctors office, and they asked me to come in at 2:30. So I went in and they had me pee in a different cup, so they could test it, which usually I do myself. I asked why, and they said to make sure it's not my bladder...? So I waited for awhile and then finally they called my name. Oh and also my weight was less 3 pounds than last time, however I am wearing leggings and NOT jeans!
So I went in and they drew blood and then the doctor came in and I told him how I was feeling. He thought this was a normal visit, but I actually wasn't scheduled to come in until next Thursday, which he was kind of mad about because I'm suppose to be going in every week now, so he was glad I came in. He did the Group B test or whatever it is, and then checked my cervix. I am NOT dilated and everything is normal. He said he's dropping so I'm going to be feeling more and more pressure down there.
It is so hard for me to walk, it HURTS when I walk. He said I am having contractions, but that I can't really feel (whatever that means).
Anyway, so I am okay.. OH wait the best part about going in today.. he told me since I've been feeling that way at work, he put me on disability! I couldn't be more excited, only because it is really hard for me to focus at work. He asked me what I did when I was feeling light headed and told him just sat there and drank water, cause I couldn't lay down. That's what made him make the choice of putting me on disability!
So today was my official last day of work, except I will be working from home (on the side) so I can still get a paycheck (on the side) and disability pay!

I feel A LOT better now and I am glad everything is ok. The baby's heart rate was 150, last time it was 160 but he said when he gets bigger, it gets slower.
So I go in next Thursday for another routine check up, and then maybe the following week another ultrasound.

That's all!

Don't look down...whatever you do.


Last night I was really interested in seeing what I looked like "down there." So I went pee and stood on the toilet and asked Matt to see what it was like. He said AH it's probably just real we looked. HOLY CRAP. It was like a monster or something. What the hell was it. It sure wasn't a normal looking vajayjay. It was like an inverted something or another.
Pregnancy does some crazy things to you. But I think I had nightmares of it.
I asked Lori if shes seen hers lately.. and her responce was "It's like a double vagina!"

HAHAHA. I thought you guys MIGHT get a laugh out of this.
And it's like POURING again. The streets are starting to flood... I LOVE IT!

Well have a good day, and try not to think about this post too much! HAHA!

Ew little bratty boys

So I love kids..I mean of course, I'm pregnant and have always wanted kids. But there is a certain age group of kids that DRIVE ME CRAZY. It usually starts around the age of 7-8 and last until 15-16. I really can't stand the 9-12 year olds. No offense to anyone, I just really have always had a hard time dealing with how immature they are and it's such a weird stage in life. You aren't a toddler anymore so you shouldn't have your pout session, however you are still young and you sometimes don't know better.. then you get to where you think you know everything!
Well I bring this up because I was in the babys room and Gibby was barking like crazy so I look outside and there is a kid close to our front door with a GUN! I assumed it was a BB gun, or an air gun, BUT STILL! He's out running around the neighbor with a huge ass gun, that from a distance looks like a rifle!
SO I ran downstairs, cause he was looking through our window, but without getting too close to the window.. you know what I mean..
Anyway I ran downstairs yelling at Matt. I opened the door and he was gone. THEN i turned around and saw I left my keys in the door!!! I was like so scared for a moment, what if he took them!? So I got the keys and went inside and locked the door and told Matt.
Then just now Gibby started barking again and I heard kids outside yelling..
I look and they are loading the gun.. with whatever it takes for ammo. I was like REALLY pissed because there are a lot of little kids and pets around here and people drive like crazy people and these kids just ran in and out of the street all the time!
Anyway.. my mom NEVER let me or my brother have a gun, she even hated water guns! Finally my brother was allowed to get a BB gun at a mature age where he freaking knew better. These kids are probably like 9-12 at the oldest. It really bothers me that their parents let them run around this neighborhood with a gun that COULD hurt someone.
It's one thing if you live out on some property where you don't really have neighbors... but to live this close.. what if I walked outside as they were shooting it?!
AHH. It just drives me crazy.
I am totally not ANTI GUNS.. I mean look at my parents and their house!!!
But I am against little kids that don't know better with a BB gun that could really hurt you.. ask Danielle and Lori! We have all been shot at with one and it's not really THAT funny to get hit with a BB!

Anyway that's my crazy rant of the day. I sometimes wish my crazy neighbor would yell at the kids hahaha. But then I would have some respect for him, and we don't want that!!

Well off to putting things away in the babys room again!

Diaper Bag

What was/is in your newborns diaper bag.

Thank you.


Yes, we had Lamaze last night.
I thought it was good, but funny. I know next week I'll probably laugh way to much. The teacher is amazing and I really like her and I think she really likes me and Matt. She also noticed that Matt really knows how to do massages (that was part of our breathing 1 technique) and said something about a full body massage and all I could think of was Body Massage Go.
She also liked to ask us a lot of questions along with 2 other couples there that she liked to "pick" on. But I think it's only because she liked us!
I'm excited for next week though. And then the 3rd week is the tour of the hospital.
ALSO, did you know that Marian gives birth to 200-300 babies a MONTH! How insane is that. The largest in the state maybe even country! It's like really insane and I could say something really bad but I won't.
OH and also, last night 2 girls walked in and one said kinda under her breath but I totally heard her.. "We are lesbians" and I laughed SO hard. They were sisters, really funny sisters from Nipomo and they were freaking so funny I swear. I couldn't believe she said that.

Anyway, I really am glad we are taking these classes. It opened my eyes to alot of things.
Your body can do anything, and yes I would rather have a C-Section with a huge ass baby, but if I don't I am ok with it. I am also ok with not getting drugs. Watching the video just made me realize... YOU CAN DO IT.

That's all.

Life Ahead

So today I was thinking about after August is born.
How are we going to cope with me not working?
What are we going to do once my disability insurance runs out and we have little income?
I have to make the choice to go back to work full time and find day care....
I know these are things we should have thought about before we got pregnant, but we sorta didn't know we were gonna get pregnant when we did!
We don't have family out here that can watch August.
I really don't know what we are going to do. I don't want to go back to work, I don't want to put my child in day care with a stranger. I don't want to pay the day care person the same amount I'm making!
This is going to be a big challenge and a big decision that we are going to have to make.
If we lived outside of California, it wouldn't be a big deal. I probably wouldn't work, or work part time. But the fact that it's expensive to live here and we have bills bills will be impossible for me to not work.
But how do I go back to work!?
I guess the next 4 months, will be the best four months until I have to face reality.

Baby Shower

Yesterday was the baby shower. I had a lot of fun. I didn't stress out as much as I thought I would and the only point I stressed out was when my mom started stressing out when everyone started showing up and she was still at the house getting sick. (for some reason she thought it started at 2....)
We got a lot of stuff we needed, a lot of really cute thoughtful gifts, and different gifts..haha.

Lori did an amazing job, not only with the whole shower, but those cookies were amazing. And Krista did an amazing job on that owl cake! I couldn't believe it! That family is so crafty!

Anyway, I had a really good time and got to see all my family and friends together and it was great. Saw a lot of family I haven't seen in awhile and miss and wish I could see more.

Thank you everyone for making yesterday wonderful!

When we got home my mom and I put together the thing from Ikea that we got and set up Augusts' room and it just felt so real..there's a baby that will be in our life in the next few weeks and it's just crazy!
I can't wait to put him in all those clothes or wrap him in those amazing hand made blankets..
Use those diapers and wipes and hopefully not get peed on!!

34 weeks today.....
Doctors on Wednesday...
Let's see what he says!

Love everyone,
