Combined Threads - Formerly Officially A BOY!! + Water Broke!

I'm sure Mike's going to realllly appreciate this. So he and I are officially trying for our kiddo #2. We had unprotected sex last night, which marks the only other time we've EVER had unprotected sex. We grew up freaking out about unplanned pregnancies so we feel good about being able to plan our two. Don't get me wrong, surprises are good too - but I kinda don't like being surprised hehe. Especially since I'm diabetic so I have to come off a lot of medication. So I'm checking my blood pressure everyday and sugar. Anyway - if it's anything like Catherine, I'll be pregnant by next week O_o

Cross your fingers!

Almost week 26 and I am miserable =( Sleeping has become extremely difficult and I spend half the night on the couch downstairs since laying in our bed puts an enormous amount of pressure on my ribs - at least that's what it feels like. I'm going to order a body pillow online right after I post this =/ I'm barely 6 1/2 months and if I feel like shit now, it's going to be REAL fun when I'm close to popping.

The baby is kung fu fighting constantly, but if he's enjoying himself I suppose its ok. It's gotten very easy for Mike to feel him moving around now. In fact last night Mike felt a real strong kick and he said, 'Oh wow, I felt that.'

I said, 'YEAH ME TOO!' Ooof =x

Just wanted to post a message to say...I liked the bubble bean!

Also, let me know if the pregnancy pillow helps at all. I wanted to get one but I put off buying it so long that I was finally 8 months pregnant and figured since I only had another month or two that I might as well tough it out. I was so uncomfortable that I reckoned that it wouldn't make a bit of difference anyway.

Well, I'm up to about 4 pillows on my side of the bed alone and they only seem to work until about 2am in the morning. =/ After that I have to finish up my sleepiness downstairs on the recliner. It's ironic but the only way I can sleep is the one way I really can't, on my back. =(

I really...really...can't wait to have my baby. O_o

You have my sympathy hun. Sounds like my last few weeks with Alison. Hell, she is out of me and my hip is back is still giving me hell. Here is hoping for a few speedy weeks till they decide it's time.

Having to sleep on your back is the worst. I weighed a lot less with CeCe and slept on my tummy til about 7 months. Hopefully the baby will come a little early so you can get some semi-decent sleep.

LESSA, DEN, TAM, TEMP, ADIENE, EVE, VEX, and VERILEAH!!! Thank you SO SO much for the stroller! The only name that came on the stroller was who it was shipped from and Vex just told me.

Well ok you didn't hurt my feelings but AFK2CRY DAMNIT!!!!!! This thing is herkin huge and heavy and we have no space in the house for David's stuff right now so I can't put it together yet hehe. It came while I was in the hospital but I got to see it last night right when I walked in the door - Mike left it there for me to see it first thing.

You guys...honestly this means the world to Mike and I. Y'all are my dearest friends and I haven't met but one of ya! (veri over the summer =D ) This means more to us than y'all could ever know and thank you to everyone who's sent gifts for our son -- Snowdragon (/hug!)

So I had my 32 week appointment today and I found out that I am for sure not having the baby on base anymore. It's not so much because of my diabetes, which is doing well right now, but because of the blood antigen issues they found earlier. The thing with Mike's blood transmitting something to Catherine that mixed with my blood when I had her - it created antigens that they have to keep an eye on because they could cause anemia in the baby. So far, so good - however, the base cannot provide filtered blood for me should I need a transfusion while delivering. Now I'm being seen off base at the major hospital here in Anchorage. It's a nice place, a friend had her baby there so I'm comfortable with it - just kind of sucks they waited until 32 weeks to decide to transfer me =/

Ack. Sorry to hear that Roz. Even though it sux they waited that long to tell you that you had to move off base for delivery,at least they are doing it for the right reasons. I'm glad to hear all is well so far! I'm prayin' for you guys. I know everything will be fine.
