Valeska's 1st grade graduation/SIL's B-day/37 weeks!!

Today I was a hormonal, over-emotional, crying mom today. My baby girl had her 1st grade award and graduation ceremony. Besides the fact that there were a ton of really annoying parents, I was in a ton of pain and hungry like a mofo and I couldn't stop being emotional, it was beautiful. She got her A/B honor roll trophy (should have been all A honor roll but one quarter she got a B in phys ed. Really Valeska? In phys ed?), certificate of completion for 1st grade and a creative writing certificate. Freddy and I are both extremely proud and beaming parents.

PPD

I came accross this site via a board on The Bump. I am so glad someone posted this as I think it is going to be a huge help for me and therefore I think I should share it with all of you.

Memorial Day Fun

Today I FINALLY got to spend some time with my BFF. She was having a bbq swimming party with her husband and another family from a church that they attend. Valeska is friends with their little girl so it was perfect timing since she has been a little bored at home.

7th Generation

I bought the all purpose cleaner from 7th Generation the other day. I love their dishsoap so I thought I would try it over the Method we have been using. My review is this...........it smells bad. I also did not find that it cleaned any better than the Method. I will not use this again. Even Freddy was wondering what the aweful smell was. *sigh*

My BFF told  me about this Malalueca stuff. I will purchase and then give my review.

Bad, bad, bad 7th Generation. Shame on you for being so stinky.

That is all I have to say about that. SO, full of win!

Time to complain

Obviously by what you may have read, I am not a happy go lucky preggo. I hate pregnancy and flame me all you like for this but I could give a hottananny less what you may think without feeling what I feel.

Here is my complaint list right now because I am soooooo over it.

Cankles. Seriously?

This has to be THE worst pregnancy symptom ever. SPD is painful and almot unbearable. Skin breakouts icky as they are can be managed. But cankles? Oh no sir!! I look like I broke my ankles (minus the bruising). Now this is after taking it "easy" today. Vanity is definately taking over on this one. I can't stand this. I have to face the world looking like this?

Trying to be lazy

It is so hard to keep yourself from doing things. I really should be taking it easy but, it is just so hard to do so. Yes the pain is bad. I have this overwhelming urge to keep cleaning and I feel like I need to prepare more.

I put together the baby bag for the hospital and started getting things together for my own hospital bag. Here is my checklist so far:

Supposed to be the strong one

So why am I breaking today? The shards of past pains are stabbing at my heart today. I haven't felt like this in soooo long.

I slept very well last night. I took a Zantac for the acid reflux and heartburn. It worked like a charm. I also took a Tylenol 3 so I could get some sort of relief from the pain of my SPD. I was even enjoying feeling Dacina moving around. 

To my angels far and near

Mommy misses you. I love you past the moon and more than the stars.

I know one day we will be together again. No matter how much time passes I only love you more with each passing minute. You are still my everything and my favorite.

Countdown Begins

Had my 35 week appt today. I was asked if I had any more questions (I bombarded the Doc last time with questions). I didn't have any. I had been constantly measuring a week ahead and now he is right on track. Disappointing in a way because now rather than thinking I will be early (around the 10th) I am thinking he is going to be a stubborn butt and be late (le sigh). I really don't want to go another 5 weeks.

35/35

Today is my 35/35. I am 35 weeks preggo and have 35 days left to go till my due date. I still say I am 2 weeks ahead of that but I will go by the doctors.

The stress is now setting in a bit about work. Not sure how all of this is going to work out but I know we will figure out something.

Hormonal me at the hospital

Today Freddy and I went to the hospital today to preregister and to take another tour of the Labor and Delivery ward. When we originally did the tour the lady had taken us a backdoor kind of way and it confused the heck out of us. Neither of us knew where we were or how to even get to L&D. lol. She had told us to preregister a month prior to my due date. So, today we went. We did find out that we are to register the day I am admitted. Um, ok. So Freddy and I are supposed to fill out paperwork while I am having contractions? If you say so.

Dove in Dacian's Room

I wasn't able to post this for a while due to Blogger having issues. So, sorry it is late but here it is.

Sitting on the couch after Freddy leaves. Aries and I see a white thing blow into the upstairs hallway. Thinking it might be a piece of paper blow from Valeska's room from the wind, I go upstairs to put it away and close the window. Aries finds it before i get up there and goes to Dacian's room. What did he find? A dove! All windows and door are closed in the house. We have NO CLUE how he got in there. He is so cute though.

33 weeks and Gorilla Head

Here I am at 33 weeks. And yes, I am sure I have 7 weeks until my due date.

Here we go again

I feel myself slipping again. I have been so happy but I knew it couldn't last long. I think my trigger this time is Freddy and my pain. This constant pain from SPD is draining. I can't seem to get any relief from it. I really don't see going 7 more weeks with this and then I think the only way to ensure that it isn't a full 7 weeks is to have a c-section and I DON'T want that if I don't absolutely have to. Horrible spiral it is.

Another Room to Tackle

I promised Valeska that we would redo her room to make it a "big girl" room. She gets to choose the theme or color scheme and I would help her. I was looking at Etsy yesterday and found a really cute Nightmare Before Christmas crib set. I would have gone with this if I didn't find the pirate theme for Dacian's room first. Oh well. Valeska said she wanted a NBC room (without Oogie Boogie). I posted this on FB and a sweet friend is giving Valeska a good amount of her old NBC stuff. So, we will be doing her room in a NBC and Monster High theme. Her favorite is Frankie Stein so I will run with that.

Osama Bin Laden is DEAD!

I hate to celebrate the death of another human being but, this is not the death of a human, this is the death of hate.

Last night America found out that the mastermind behind the on 9/11 attacks on the US was killed by the US military.

I was setting up Valeska's new shelves that we got at a garage sale and her new desk all the while cleaning out her room to redo it. I came downstairs to check my email one last time before heading to bed, Freddy turned on the TV and President Obama was making an emergency address to America. He announced about 3 minutes later that Osama Bin Laden  is dead. I nearly went into labor right then and there!!

I know this isn't the end of the war but hopefully the beginning of the end. Ironically this day in 1945 Adolf Hitler was pronounced dead. This was the best Beltane EVER!!
