Twenty two has passed and hence forth the twenty third.

I feel like such a loser for not keeping up with my blog better. It's hard though... it seems like all my days run into eachother now. I am now into my 23rd week of pregnancy. And I can honestly say that I can not wait for it to be over with... I mean some parts are really cool, like feeling the baby move. That has to be one of the most amazing feelings on earth, but the mood swings, being constantly hungry, and getting stretch marks can gladly stop. Seriously... I didn't really think about the stretch mark part until I got a couple of little lines around my belly button. Boo... So now, I am consistently lathering on cocoa butter all around my belly and I smell like a giant cocoa bean. Hmm, not my favorite scent. But, if it will help, even just a little bit, I will bathe in it. Ha ha.

This week my little baby's hearing has become much better. He can actually react to outside noises instead of what's going on right infront of his belly home. So, if I'm quiet and still for awhile and then if I suddenly start moving and talking, it startles him and he starts kicking. His body is almost completely formed (bones and all) and his lungs are developing. He's even practicing taking breaths. :) Cool, yeah?

As for the 22nd week, that I mistakingly forgort to update about is basically everything that was preparing baby for the ventures of this week. I.E. his inner ear nerves were getting more developed and he has figured out how to explore his temporary home of the womb. Like, he was developing enough grip and coordination to feel around his face and gripping onto his umbilical cord. Neat, yeah?

So, I feel pretty good. I mean, I've been really trying to keep my temper under control and when I start to feel bad, I try to just remember that it's my hormones and that I need to stop being so damn paranoid about everything. Ha ha. The only down fall of this week is that my back, hips, and feet have truly started hurting if I'm up and about for too long without stopping. Like today, I had a very busy day. I first went to JC Penny where I purchased some very cute maternity wear, considering I am getting bigger than a freakin' whale and I can't wear my normal shirts without my belly poking out from the under neath... then we went and finished up my baby registery at Babies R Us, and we went to targert where I got a pregnancy yoga video and some shoes... and now, my body feels like it has been hit with a train. Ugh, ouch. But all in all, I feel like I got something done.

I really have to go and do my baby registery at wal-mart too, because my baby shower is in March. Oh! And that reminds me, if you would like to come to my baby shower, I need your mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address so my sister can get you the right information. :)

Okay, I'm going to wrap this up. :) Everyone have a great week and I'll see ya laterz!

End of 21 weeks!

I'm about finished with my twenty-oneth week of el pregnancy... which, feels pretty good. Except, I've been a raging bitch lately. Thank you hormones....

I came out to my supervisor at work today, and I feel absolutley fantastic about it. She was so awesome and supportive and I explained why I was so scared and stressed, because I need this job and I really enjoy where I am in the company. She told me that I was a great employee and for me not to stress, because she will take care of it. That made me feel really good that my company actually cares about their employees enough to make things happen, even though I've not been there a year. I feel awesome, I feel like the world was lifted off my shoulders. I can actually feel good about having time off to spend with me new baby and prepare my self to go back to work. Thank you, God.

I don't understand why my new compute will not let me paste from the website anymore... it will copy but not paste, which pisses me off. >_< Basically it stated that my baby is about the size of a large banana, his body has began a REM cycle, which is crucial to his sleep pattern, and his skin is kinda wrinkly because he'll be growing a lot soon and he'll need extra space to fill in.

The baby moves a lot these days, although the past two days I might feel him wiggle a little here and there, but he's not been moving as much as he was last week. But as long as I get a nudge here and there, that's enough to settle my nerves.

I'm getting excited, and I really wish we had a name picked out. Jack and I kinda argued bout it... (actually, it was more of me arguing because I can't help but get frustrated so easy) but I'm sure we'll settle eventually. I want a unique name, but nothing that he'll get really made fun for... but something where he won't have 5 other little boys in his class with the same name. It's the hardest thing ever... naming a baby, that is.

Anyways, thats about all I have for this week. I'll update again very soon, I go into 22 weeks tomorrow. :D Yay!

20 weeks.

Whew, it does not seem like I've been pregnant for this long. It still feels like I just found out. I still get waves of panic when I realize I'm pregnant, as odd as that sounds. Ha ha...

As of right now, I'm at the end of my first 20 weeks. I'm half way done! And although it hasn't really been noticeable, I'm starting to notice more and more everyday. My stomach is growing daily, which actually bothers me quite a bit... I just don't want to get bigger. -_- bummer. But, I know it's baby and that I'll eventually be able to be happy with the way I look again. It is getting harder and harder to hide at work, since they still do not know. I want to tell them, but I'm so terrified that they will fire me since I've not been there 90 days yet. I really hope they understand. Although, I will not qualify for maternity leave, I'll be able to take a short term disability leave, which keeps me out for at least 6 weeks. I'm going to need to buy some bigger sweaters because even through my hoody, I'm starting to notice the bump.

Last Friday (the 8th) I was very sick. I had to go to the hospital because I had a bad stomach virus.... luckily, it did not affect the baby at all.

Anyways, this is what's been going on with my wittle baby:
"This week you're carrying about 10.5 inches and 10.5 ounces of solid baby-miracle-goodness! Their little delicates bones continue to ossify and toughen while their itsy bitsy finger and toe pads are finishing up. Your little monkey now has teeth buds, although they’re hidden beneath the gum line. And finally! Their limbs have reached their relative proportions—no more alien baby! Their cute pink lips are more defined, and might be helping out in a bit of prenatal thumb-sucking. If you have a little boy, then their tiny testes are descending, though they have not yet passed the abdominal wall. What’s more, eyelashes and eyebrows are also visible. At this point, your little one really looks like a miniature baby—and we do mean miniature as your little swimmer currently weighs a mere eighth of their final birth weight. With half the pregnancy behind you, the most significant gains are yet to come!"

Awe, :3 cute cute cute.


K, that's all.

oh me, oh my.

There's a penis inside of my belly...teehee hee.

That's right, I had my gender ultra sound and it's a boy! Which, makes me a pretty happy girl. I'm having a son... that's.... crazy. ha ha.

Anyways, this past week (week 19) has been a little stressful, but not too bad. My headaches are less, but I am still randomly throwing up. (Thank you, egg sandwhich for making my morning suck) and now I'm hungry.... All the time. It's sucks.

My tummy is starting to pooch out more and more everyday, and that makes me certainly paranoid about work because I've not brought up that I was pregnant yet. It's hard... I really need the job.

Other wise, life is good and things are getting better everyday. I've been having some mood swings lately. Not to angry or anything, but more of a depressed feeling randomly. I can be happy then a couple hours later, I feel so paranoid and upset. Ugh. People.

It's not letting me paste what has happened this past week inside of the womb, but basically they're saying that legs included, the baby is about 10 inches long and that the baby has started swallowing amniotic fluid.

I saw on the ultra sound little bubbles in his belly that showed that he was swallowing the fluid, I saw his kidneys, brains, and little heart. I also saw his whatnots and his little nose. Even though in one of the pictures he looks like a money because he was stretching his neck back.

I feel him moving around all the time now. He loves when I laugh or when I'm around good company. He wakes up for awhile around 11:30 and dances, flips, or does whatever it is he's doing for about 15 minuets. It's a crazy feeling... it's getting stronger each day.

Anyways, that's about it.

Imma go and eat now. :)
