36 weeks 3 days

So, this week I turned 36 weeks and the downhill spiral starts!! I always have the worst last month of my pregnancy. With Gabriel i just had swollen feet, but with Brooke I put myself on bed rest, I couldn't take the pain of it all. With Aeneas it's just worse! I've had so much pressure and on top of that, he moves non stop (which I love but add the pressure, it's not fun) These past few days my hemorrhoids have been acting up.....and man, do they HURT. I can't move without hurting, and then on top of that my sides are hurting for some unknown reason....ugh! I hate the last month of pregnancies, I really hope that I have an easy labor.
Today I have a doctors appt. and hopefully I can get to the bottom of this. I also am getting checked to see if I have strep b...a virus that needs to be treated with an IV during labor cause if not, the baby could get very sick. I know I'll fail the test and I'll have to get the IV because it happened with Brooke. I HATE HATE HATE IV's....they NEVER do it right on me and I ALWAYS end up with 10 thousand bruises after I'm done because they don't listen to me when I tell them....look, I need the anaesthesiologist to give me the IV.....after about umpteen tries they finally listen to me.....NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT!!
Anyway....i know labor isn't going to be fun, i don't think it's meant to be fun, but boy, afterwards when you hold that tiny baby in your arms, it's so worth it all!

I'll keep you all updated on how things are progressing.

35 weeks 3 days





So I had my doctor appointment yesterday and everything is going great. Aeneas' heartbeat was at 150-160 and he's finally in the head down position!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!! So he should start to drop anytime now :)
I'm now to the point where I have appointments every week until he is here :) I'm so excited to meet this little guy. Matthew gave me a blessing a few nights ago because I was having such a hard time, but the Lord assured me that everything was going to be just fine, and I trust the Lord, so I just have to have faith that he will take care of me.

Well today I had an emotional breakdown....over something COMPLETELY stupid!!!! I went to Wal Mart to buy food to last us through the rest of the month and I also picked up my WIC stuff....well, I had 3 bottles of juice and 1 bottle of fruit/veggie juice. Well, I always get my fruit/veggie juice as a veggie juice, and I never had anyone stop me until today.....the lady said that it has to be pure veggie juice to count and she explained it...I completely understood (it would basically rob Wal Mart of money if I got it because it's counted as a juice instead of a veggie juice), well, I didn't get it. So I was about to leave and the lady behind me said "stay here, I'll buy the other juice for you, you and your baby need it" it completely blew me off guard and I started crying!!!!! I thanked her so many times....so now I'm balling my eyes out over something stupid and everyone at Wal Mart is looking at me thinking I'm an emotional basket case. I cried all the way home until I told Matthew what happened. I was so greatful for what she did for me....although I would have been fine without it, she bought it for me. I don't think I thanked her enough,
i was in the middle of crying and looking away....but I think crying helped her understand that I was very greatful! I just felt like a blubbering idiot!!! I wish I could to that to people....I can't wait until we are completely financially stable so I can!I love giving.
So anyway....things have been going great, other then my emotional breakdown...haha!

35 weeks 1 day

I can't believe this pregnancy has gone by so fast! I have 5 weeks or less left to go and it's a scary yet very exciting thought!
This past week has been an ok week, nothing really exciting, just regular pregnancy stuff. I failed my one hour glucose test and had to go in for a three hour one! UGH! I didn't know how horrible it was going to be. They took blood from me every hour....so 4 times total, they took my blood and my poor veins hurt after the 3rd and 4th poke. I don't know what my results are, but I have a doctors appt tomorrow and they should tell me then.
I've been having a lot of pressure in my stomach...no big surprise really. This baby hasn't dropped yet because I still can't breathe.

It's crazy to think that I could really deliver in 2 weeks. I was 2 1/2 weeks early with Gabriel and I think since him I've been on my toes waiting for the 37th week to come. My mother in law comes a week before my due date and I'm praying Aeneas comes then because I will have someone to help out PLUS have someone here to watch the kids while I deliver.
Anyway...I'll keep you posted as to what happens when. I haven't had Braxton Hicks Contractions a lot this pregnancy...I've had a little here and there, but nothing really big.

Name chage!

So0o0o...we have decided to change this baby's name from Elijah to Aeneas (a-nay-us). I wasn't settled on Elijah, and decided to look for other names. Last night Matthew and I were looking on line and the name Aeneas came up...and we both fell in love right away. It's Latin spelling and comes from a lot of origins, Greek, Scottish, Latin, Irish...and means praiseworthy. Aeneas was a Roman warrior...very powerful.
We are still thinking of David for the middle name, but haven't completely settled on it yet. We were also thinking Matthew for the middle name....but we want to come up the with perfect middle name that doesn't over power his fist name, nor make his whole name extremely over bearing. Aeneas David or Aeneas Matthew works....we also this Aeneas Micheal works, but I don't like the name Micheal very much.....who knows. All we know is that his name will go over well with the girls when he gets older, since it's a very unique name....and it kind of sounds like Royalty to me :)

Anyway....I can't wait to meet this little guy.

Gestational Diabetes!?

So this morning I got a call from the Doctors telling me that my 1 hour glucose test came back a little high and that I need to go back to do a stupid 3 hour test! NOT looking forward to it.
I'm SO scared that they will tell me that it's still high. I don't want a HUGE baby and I DONT want to go through what women go through when they have GD.
I'm just not too happy about all this......ugh!
FRUSTRATING! I hate being fat!

33 weeks 1 day





33 weeks have gone by so fast...yet so slow! I can't believe that in about 7 weeks I will be holding my baby boy in my arms :)

This past weeks has been going ok. Matthew came home from OIC Thursday the 30th of May....and Thank Goodness!! I really felt like I was going to go insane!! I don't have any friends around here, so I couldn't just call anyone up and be like...Hey, can I come over for the day. We went to McDonald's every monday night for FHE and to just let the kids get some energy off....and we stayed there for a good hour to 2 hours when we did go. We also watched a LOT of Sesame Street!! 3-5 times a day for 2 weeks, so lets just say, they were a little hooked! haha. We have cut it off completely, but they only watch it maybe once a day.

My stomach has been having a LOT of pressure in it, and this baby NEEDS to drop!! I can't breathe! I think he's still head up, because I feel kicks down there...unless they are hiccups, but who knows. These past weeks weeks my inner thighs and uhhh...down there REALLY hurts, like I just did 10 million lunges! It's crazy. In the middle of the night I can barely turn over because it's a struggle to do so. And Elijah still loves the right side of my stomach, haha. He hangs over there a lot lately.
Other then that, everything is going great. I'm making an appt to see the Doc sometime this week or next, so we will see what position this child of mine is in.

P.S. The pics are of a cook out we went to with some friends who came down to visit. Matthew has been friends with them for a long time, and our kids are around the same age, so they get along great :)
