Wel, I wasn't sure if I would continue a blog!
It's certainly tiring having a baby, but I think now I have gotten into the swing of it...for now!
So let's see the last two months have been interesting! I have to say I was not prepared for going from 1 to 2 children. It quite an adjustment. You are so used to putting your attention on one child, that once the next comes, your older child has such a huge adjustment to make. And I don't care what anyone says no matter how much you include the older siblings, it is hard. So I had to get used to balancing being mommy to two & wife to one, and just a person in general. I also ran into some health issues-post partum hemorrhage-YUCK, and getting sick...it was rough. But I am outta the 6 week slump, Miya is growing wonderful. She is 12.8 lbs now. I know what a whopper!! She smiles non-stop...I love it! Her sleep schedule is pretty good, she goes down at 6pm-wakes up around 10 to feed & then 2 to feed & wakes up for 7:30 the next morning! Some days it's not exact, but she is relatively calm, as long as she is well fed & slept! The best thing I have learned it the"cry it out method" for sleeping, she actually goes to sleep on her own now with very little to no crying. So if u ever have kids-I suggest doing that! As for as getting in shape, I have yet to start, I have lost most of my visible weight-everything left is more toning, I am joining the GYM this week! So I look forward to getting in shape! I can't believe I waited this long to start, but life has kept me super busy! Anyhow with that, my eyelids are drooping! LOL
Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!

Well as you all know, my due date came and went 10/10/10-it was a very sad day for me!
On Monday of thanksgiving I saw my dad and said 'tomorrow you will have the baby!' I agreed with him, but mostly doubted and thought I would go over due. I told my family and friends next week-
Well Tuesday I went for a long vigorous walk, ate spicy food,co, and started to feel uneasy by about 4:00pm. I took a nap and by 6, I had some contractions but it wasn't anything to "get excited about"
At about 6:30 I got the revelation, these are real contractions, but was still in disbelief! Then I had my "bloody show". That's when I knew labor was coming, but in my mind it still could have been a couple days! The contractions got worse, so i timed them, they were coming every 2-4 min. I told Gary (who wasn't home at the time) it was time to go, he was like "Are you sure? I think your rushing this??"
Even when he got home, and by then I had to breathe through contractions he still seemed hesitant to leave for the hospital. Well it's a good thing we did-about 10 min after being in triage of labor & delivery-my water broke! But not just the regular -it had meconium in it-so if that had happened anywhere else, what a mess!!
They admitted me immediately! At 11:30- I was in my birthing room, bouncing on the ball breathing through contractions & chatting with the nurses. By 4;30-Hey there folks!
She was healthy & covered in poop!!
It was a wonderful experience, I cried to much-I was in such shock it all happened to quickly!!
Her first day-she got some visitors & now we are home her & her daddy are resting!
I am hopefully going to do the same!
Thanks all for following!

It's Sunday- One more week till my expected due date! Possibly 18 more days till I actually have the baby! Should I go over due, I am waiting 10 days past due date to see if i can deliver naturally! This is also b/c my last was overdue & I have had 3 different due dates given to me, so I don't want to induce to early unless i need too!
It's monday, I had a dr apt today with my dr. It was my last apt with him. Should I go overdue, I have an apt with another dr. I hope to see him again in my delivery room!! Hopefully he is on rotation when I go in for delivery!! This morning, I had a sharp but breif contraction lasting about 30 second maximum. I knew it was a contraction cause braxton hicks don't feel like that. However nothing followed. I don't mind though-i am enjoying my last couple days or possibly week of freedom!
It's Tuesday, last night I slept okay, not as good as past nights. I had a brisk walk this morning in the rain, I came home exhausted. Everything feels pretty much normal-I think i am having company tonight so that should be good! Take my mind off things!! Even though i have been more relaxed now than anxious, i guess cause its so close. I didn't feel the greatest today, had a very deep sleep nap this afternoon! May be the last i catch for quite sometime!
Wednesday-had a little bit of nesting istinncts today, cleaned alot & crashed alot! I am oddly tired this week.But imma enjoy those cry free naps!!
Thursday- woke up with usual energy, then by about 10 was readyf or a morning nap!! did some vaccuming and organizing, this evening I teach piano & then I went to do some shopping! My wonderful husband bought me another full size piano keyboard! The one I have already we are tired of taking back & forth to church! I ended up with something so nice! That made my evening!
Friday-this morning I am tired of pregnancy! Well more tired of everyone saying "ur still pregnant" "nothing happened yet" "the babies coming" Ahhhh I know!!!! I feel like i am on some sort of time clock ready to explode, and everyones just waiting! I am actually okay with going a bit overdue, Ikinda plan too-u know plan for the worst. But everyone asks me, so have u felt anything yet, if I had I would be in labor! Sorry if ur reading this and ur one of those people who are driving me crazy! I still love you though-and will make sure to do the same to you when ur 40 weeks pregnant! LOL
Will my 40 weeks is pretty much complete-hopefully there won't be a 41 week entry but a I hade the baby entry!!

So this week the nursery and everythign is officially finished!! If the baby came now i would be completly prepared! Well... at least prepared to take care of her, not prepared for labor,. This whole time I have been playing it cool, and haven't had much worry about labor. I figured i got through it once i certainly can do it again! Well I just realized tonight I am crazy for thinking this way! Although the statement is true, i find myself very concerened about labor all of a sudden? Will I be able to handle it? What if I am not as strong as i was 6 years ago?? All these crazy thoughts came flooding in at about 12:00 am, and now i can't sleep! So i thought i would vent via blog!! It also hit me that this time next month i will already have my baby, even if i go over due! Thats exciting! I feel pretty prepared for the sleepless nights, seems like I am already experiencing them. I do remember when i had tiana by the 3rd night i was so exhausted, well actually i felt so tired all the time. I would look forward to the weekends when her grandma would watch her for 5 hrs or so!!This week at the dr everything went well. My fundus(top of uterus to bottom) is measuring small & the dr said i don't look huge like i thought i was! That was encouraging, i also only gained 1 pound-cause the last time i gained 2 pounds extra for the week, and i had already gained a bit extra throughout earlier weeks. I have been doing lots of walking though, so i am pretty sure thats helping! I wasn't up for a photo this week, but i took one-ugghgh YUCK!! This will probably be my last! This pregnancy thing has lost its cuteness! LOL

Then I went shopping for some baby clothes cause I didn't have vey much & I found this adorable jumper that says "I love my mommmy",my eyes filled with water in the store. I was thinking to myself "Vic get it together, your in public". Next week I do the final shop for baby items and then I am done, so I am very happy about that! This week my carpel tunnel syndrome got worse, it get so painful at night . I hope it leaves immediately after pregnancy! It was a pretty good week this week. Its been very busy with the rally so I am so excited for next week to stay home and "Nest" LOL. My daughter is getting increasingly excited, which is making me more excited by the minute! Its going to be a wonderful time!! I know one thing though I will not miss being pregnant!! LOL It just not fun! In the picture I am sporting my new stroller & car seat! Very excited to use those!! Also this week my Dad gave me my breast pump & a portable travel diaper warmer, they are getting quite advanced now in the things available for babies. Even when I had my daughter 6 yrs ago there wasn't this huge a selection of things!

Things are winding down now, and as much as its gone by quickly, its starting to feel very very slow!!This week I had a lot of discomfort! Tons of Braxton Hicks conrtactions, back ache, leg cramps, allergies
and even some wierd heat rash bump thing! Oh and I forgot Insomnia! So for those who are tuning in at this point, this weeks entry will definitely keep you from wanting to get pregnant. I really am starting to miss feeling light! LOL
Also not being able to sleep on my stomach is so upseting!! I know, I know, this entry sounds so boo hoo!But its just a practical part of pregnancy! This week & my week travelling in Tucson have been the hardest two weeks since i have been pregnant. Thats not bat though 2/33! LOL My little one, has gotten quite big, she squrism and turns A LOT! And the kicking isn't quite as comfortable!On a brighter note, next week I am looking forard to all my nursery furnitue coming in! It should be interesting trying to set up the crib& glider! Oh and on the bright side of things MY BELLY DROPPED!! I just noticed this evening, it has taken some weight of my chest area, but that would explain the back ache for the week!

muscles, but we'll see. "I am not a Doctor" LOL. Baby is doing wonderfully, now we get to see little feet and elbows sticking out!! Thats been so wonderful, its really helped me bonding to the baby too! I have noticed alot of women are pregnant, and a lot are due around the same time as me! Everywhere I go I see at least 2 pregnant ladies, and usually if I have convo with them they are due anywhere from september -november! I think its a baby boom!! We had a dinner the other night & everyone was putting in their guess for what I am having! It funny cause its really been 50/50 of what I have heard. It has been quiet entertaining to listen to everyones reasons as to why I am having what I am having! I do look forward to sharing with my family & friends! It will be fun to hear some of the reactions.
Here are some of the old wives tale reasons people have told me I aam havign what I am having
1) Your carrying high so its a girl
2) Your carrying more out front than around the waste so its a boy
3) You like orange juice so its a girl
4) The heart beat is slow so its a boy
5) You didn't have morning sickness so its a boy
6)Haven't lost your beauty so its a boy
7)I held a boy baby & it didn't cry so its a girl
8)And the lady at the ultrasound said....lol you'll just have to wait till Aug!!LOL
Anyhow, I am off to bed, its quite late & I have a very busy weekend ahead of me! I get to look forward to 2 hours on a noisy non air conditioned bus with 50 people saturday! As we travel to Wasaga beach for a church picnic! That should be interesting! I was on a bus today with no Air COnditioning! OH my gosh I was so uncomfortable! So I pray its cool on saturday!

Well my visit to Dr. Gurland went well!! He turned out to be so nice!! It was nice seeing him again after 6 years, he even seemed happy to see my daughter Tiana, who he delivered when she was born!
This week I am starting to feel more "big". I have to rest more & take it easy when I walk. For those who know me I am a super fast walker and that I have even had to tone down a bit!! Actually a lot last night!!
We went to see fire works for Canada Day! I was so uncomfortable by the end of the evening!!
As far as baby is concerned! Fetal Movement has been intense!! We have our selves quite the little kicker!
Sleeping has become increasingly difficult!! It depressing that my good sleep has been thrown out the window for at least the next 10 months to a year! I have been praying though for a miracle baby that sleeps through the night from the get go!! Pray with me please! LOL

Well I have finally approached my sixth month of pregnancy!! YAY!!
Sometimes pregnancy can feel so long, but so far so good!!
My baby is very healthy and always kicking up a storm! I always get
excited when I feel the little kicks nudges and nodds! There really is
no greater joy than having a baby!! My daughter is super excited to be
a big sister!! And daily rubs my tummy & talks to her new sibling!
Now I am at the point I can tell when the baby is awake & asleep!
Thankfully the wake hours are during the day! Lets hope this continues!
I am starting to feel a bit big now, my hands had swollen a bit today-I went on a 3 hr walk though so no wonder!!
I will be taking it easy tomorrow though!!
I didn't realize how far the ice cream store was!! LOL
WHat a pregnant lady will do for some good ice-cream!! :D
Well thats all for today

The Kicking Game
So my lovely baby and I had a wonderful moment this morning. I would press in on my tummy with my hand & then the baby would kick back! I would proceed to press again and the baby would kick back!! It was really adorable to me! And was a very special moment. Also today my friend got to feel my baby kick, she was excited & other than my daughter she is the only other person who has felt the baby move. Usually when people put their hand on my tummy, nothing else happens!! Even my husband said today how he didn't feel the baby move yet!
Aah well, it was a nice day as for movement!! Every time I feel my baby move i am just so grateful to have a healthy baby!!

BABY KICKS SISTER
Well today I wasn't feeling the greatest, I guess I am still adjusting to the time zone and recovering from travelling! Anyhow I asked my daughter to rub my tummy for me and sing to the baby,
so she starts singing 'mary had a little lamb' with her cheek to my tummy. I was liIt'scwhat are you doing?' and she said she wanted to see what the baby was doing!! Well each time she put her cheek to my tummy the baby kicked! It was cute because Tiana got so excited, and said 'Mommy Mommy the baby kicked me', sure enough she puts her cheek back and the baby kicks her again...it happened three times, and they were hard kicks too! It was a special moment for both of us, more for her-cause she felt like 'wow mommy there is a baby in there your not just getting fat!' And I was happy to share the moment with her as well. Its always hard to time people catching the baby kick, like they will kick up a storm and the second I say okay feel... it stops!!
My husband Gary has only felt it kick once, and it was a light kick! How amazing how a little baby can be in your womb!! What a miracle
Felt my baby & Ultra S0und
Well I am a bit late, I had my ultra sound last week, on monday & wednesday!
I cried of course when i saw the baby! I just couldn't believe it was moving and okay!! I was so happy!! And on wednesday got to see the baby again with Tiana! It was very special, I was awwed!! The little guy/ gal just kept moving and twirling all over...so cute!!
Then today I felt the baby flutter a couple times, which was neat-i kind of don't believe i felt the baby! But at the same time i don't normally get these little fluttery feelings in my stomach!
Well that's all I wanted to share
Morning sickness is light
This morning i got up too fast-ate a yogurt and gulped down cold water! Well what a no no! Minutes later I was throwing it up in the sink & then in the toilet!!(sorry if that ruined your breakfast! I felt a bit queezy-and i know i am pregnant cause all i want to eat is kraft dinner! It's funny cause about a month ago i felt kraft dinner had lost its touch to me, but now i am right back on the band wagon!! LOL I don't really feel for healthy food-i do like fruits but full meals are just not appealing right now!I am sure once I am in my 2nd timester i will be alright
It's almost been a week since i have known!
This week has been interesting, a very low energy mild nasea week. The thing for me though is that I am already prone to nasea so I have to take it easy as my body could make it worse at any moment. I find i am most queezy when i don't eat in the morning...and then i am fine for about a 1/2 hr. Then i start to feel queezy again and this is usually when i eat a small snack and i feel better, then i lie down and when i get up it usually triggers so more nausea and then finally after i eat in the evening time, i feel a bit funny but it is so mild i can kind of ignore it!I know when I had my first daughter it was much worse than this so i really shouldn't complain
Last night I got my first craving for a "big mac"-when i ate it i wasn't completly satisfied though b/c it was kinda cold but yummy all the same, i really wanted turky & Havarti on fresh bread-but then i realized i can't eat turkey unless its heated so i had "toad in a whole" instead. Which i really enjoyed but now the idea has made me feel kinda sick cause the sausage wasn't very crispy! I don't really believe in food cravings though, it's all in the mind-and an excuse to eat! LOL So i try not to indulge in them often, but my pregnancy just started-so whats one food adversion!!
New Born Diapers
Today i bought my first pack of Newbie diapers! It was such a surreal feeling, i am feeling very full today, i feel this diet has way more food than i would usually eat, but before i would just fil up on lots of cards & sugars! So its interesting eating healthy!
I TOLD HIM
Well I just had to tell him, so when he came hom from biblestudy i had wrapped one of Tiana's first sleepers she wore home from the hospital & a little note saying conratz daddy & the positive pregnancy test in a little package. I said "i have something for you". And he said 'what' and i handed it to him. He was like "what's this" and i was like "read it". And then he said "ur pregnant" & i said "yes" & he had the biggest smile i have ever seen him have on. Then he looked like he had tears in his eyes and hugged me. He looked very happy and told me he was very excited! I felt glad that i told him!
Well today was church, it's interesting trying to hide something you are so excited about, even having to hide it from my daughter until i am ready to let everyone know. Yesterday i bought my first maternity dress, it's gonna be my "little black dress". I even put on the "baby bump" to see what it will look like with a tummy. So cute, i really hope i stay fit for this and in shape!! I look forward to tommorrow-cause i am gonna start my pregnancy diet & the excersise and that sort of stuff, i have felt pretty good, just tired-i went to bed at 8PM yesterday! I am trying to do my best not to complain about pregnancy sypmtons no matter how bad they are...Having a child is such a blessing & i want to enjoy every min of it. My body is tired though!
I had a hunch I was, I dreamt about it last night, and have been feeling a bit over weight for the last couple weeks. This last week i noticed my tummy looked pregnant and i just felt funny. So not to my surprise but at the same time to my surprise I am pregnant!! So excited though, i have not told my husband yet-i plan to tell him in this evening. I want to call him now and tell him, but yah i won't be doing that! I need to figure out a nice way to tell him! I cried when i found out-tears of joy though-this could not be a better time-tiana, will be in school full day by the time the baby is due. The baby is Due Oct 10-i always wanted to have a baby due early in the year-but that's okay-as long as they are healthy!!
I have been praying for twins so i wonder if i am going to get twins?
Well today i feel fine, nothing out of the ordinary-I am really praying for a miracle pregnancy, no morning sickness, no acne, no water retention, stay slim & fit, feel great and energetic, no swelling & fast delivery! We weren't planning on getting pregnant now...but i am glad we are!!
