Feeling just Swell

I'm 22 weeks pregnant this week. Things that are changing:

1.) My feet are starting to swell. Just a little but when I take my shoes off at night I have shoe impressions on my feet. The shoes I wore on Sunday were too tight on Thursday. I'm not really sure why this is happening so soon.

2.) Bye, bye wedding ring. I can force my wedding ring on but its really uncomfortable so this week I just bid goodbye. I am thinking about going and getting a fake ring somewhere so I can keep all the men away. ha!

3.) My hair is a crazy thick. I had it cut last week and thinned out. I'm thinking I'm going to need to get it thinned again in about a month

4.) This little baby isn't a mover and shaker. She is very still and only gives me a couple of bumps a day. The bumps are very low, down way past my bellybutton. Cami was always under my ribs. Strange.

5.) I can't sleep at night. It's not because I'm uncomfortable, its because I can't sleep. This has been going on since the start. Now, I can sleep from 5:30am -9am without a problem. It's the 2-5:30am that is my witching hour.

6.) I'm having "Want" issues. I feel like I need to get all this "stuff" for me or the house or for Cami before the baby gets here because afterwords there wont be any time or money. I don't know if this is normal or not but I'm pretty sure I bought myself all sorts of crap right before Cami came along.

7.) Pregnancy brain. Scott told me his is afraid that I'll leave Cami at the store because I have become so forgetful.

8.) Is it just me or do I look 7 months pregnant instead of 5 months pregnant? I HAVE to stop telling myself that this is the last time I'll be pregnant so indulge because I have the rest of my life to diet!

9.) Motivation. I'm having a hard time getting motivated to do much of anything besides relaxing. Cleaning, Laundry,Working etc. are all starting to take a backseat to relaxing. I need the "nesting" to kick in before we are called to star in a episode of Hoarders.

10.) Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke... I want Coke all the time. I have limited myself to 1 a day. But if my one Coke comes in a 36oz cup it still counts as 1 right?

Birthday Party


We had a great Birthday party at the park. Big thanks to Lindsay and Mom for helping take care of everything (and Mary Hall for helping set up... FYI never get to a birthday party early!) Cami had a great time and really loved having friends around to play. Although, she loved her gifts I think a cake with her friends would have been enough for my little girl.

One of the little girls in her class at daycare came to her party. When we walked in today Little Ava said, "Hey Camille, I went to your party! I got a ring and chocolates!" Cami walked right over to her and said, "Thanks for coming to my party Ava." And then gave her a big kiss on the check. It was very sweet.

We talked the whole way into school about her party and she asked who got her what gifts again. She wanted to call my mom this morning and thank her again for her new Princess movie.

Tuesday, March 27th, is her actual birthday. I think having the party on Sunday is confusing her some. We are taking cupcakes to school tomorrow and plan to do something fun, just the three of us. I feel like over the next 3 months I'm really going to need to spoil my Cami and make as much one-on-one time with her as possible. It's hard to believe that she is 3 but I really don't ever remember life without her either.

Its a new day, a new dawn...

I'm sure all are expecting a post about my dad. I'm not going to do that here. I love him and will always miss him but how I feel belongs between us.

So, it's a new day and new dawn. I'm happy to report that I am pregnant with baby #2 and it is a girl. She is healthy and right on track. Cami and Scott are over the moon. I'm happy that I can recycle clothes etc. and that having a girl in the end will save me money. :0) Although, a friend pointed out two weddings! Please make them elope!

We currently STILL have our home on the market. We do have an offer that we have accepted but the people have to sell their home. We are going to continue to keep it on the market in case we find another buyer that can purchase right a way but we do have a back up.

Scott and I are very busy with work. I'll work until the day before I deliver. If all goes according to plan I will have another C-section on July 27th. The babies due date is 8/2/12 (my birthday) but Dr. Steele takes C-section babies a week early. She did this with Camille and I was thankful for that or I would of had a 10 pound baby. I have a feeling that this baby will be smaller than Cami but I also had a VERY strong feeling it was a boy. So, its all a mystery.

No girl names picked out. I knew before I even found out with Cami what I would name a daughter. With this one, I don't even have clue. The second one is already getting the shaft. I know all to well about this myself. :)

So, as the sun shines in my window and the trees and flowers are blooming outside I sign off happy and excited!
