Oh No

Well I had a bit of a scare but all is well. So I have been working at a day care as a sub and surprisingly getting more hours than I would have thought, but while I am enjoying working with the kids and being around all the ladies again Joseph is not liking it, he has decided to put pressure on my cervix. By pressure I mean not a little but a lot I couldn't even roll over in bed with out hurting, I called the doctor's nurse to see if there was something I could do it make it go away, she told me to just go home a lay down and relax. That was Wednesday, so Thursday I worked and the pressure was really bad and than at night I had some fake contractions, so of course I automatically called my mom who in return told me to call the doctor again, called she told me to come in the next morning. I go in and they listen to Joseph's heart beat and after about a minute he decides he has had enough of that and kicks the little machine right off my belly, which made me feel a little better knowing he didn't like them to do that either. Anyways the nurse told me that is common to feel the pressure with a second kid and that I needed to just relax and everything would be okay. I was happy and relieved to find out that nothing was wrong, but a little annoyed to think that there is nothing they can do about this pressure, and they told me I would not only be getting checked of diabetes (where you have to drink that nasty sugar water) next appointment I will also be getting a shot in my butt oh goodie I am really excited about my next appointment now. moral of my babble Joseph wants me to just sit on the couch and watch tv all day long :)

Getting your already jealous dog ready for a new baby. I wanted to make sure that the experience of a new baby coming would be good every one that includes Jerry dog, but he is not taking to it so well. Pugs are very people dogs meaning they would rather be around people than other dogs, so I looked up how to introduce your dog to a new baby and it all sound really easy. You just start setting things out that the baby will use, start with little stuff first like clothes, well Jerry loves clothes clean or dirty so I thought great he will love this part. Nope I was wrong he wouldn't go near the clothes I tries having him sniff them, no he just walked off. So next I put the stroller out and he completely avoided it, even when I pushed it around he ran off. And to make the situation worse Joseph kicks him every time he comes near my belly, Jerry was laying on my lap (which is half belly) and Joseph just gave him a good one two and let him know he was there. So now Jerry wont go any where near my belly he avoids it like it is the plague. And Jerry has begun to snuggle right up to me when he sleeps, like if I move a little bit away from him he will scoot right next to me, which he never did before. Jerry would snuggle with Brian but not with me, on the couch Brian, in the bed Brian, which wouldn't be bad but he sleeps like 90% of a day, I think he knows something is up. Now I am just waiting it out Brian said he will do just fine as soon as the baby comes but I know I am going to have to map out time in my day just for a snuggle with Jerry.

My new blog, okay here we go, I am pregnant with my second child a boy and it is way different than my first. So my first pregnancy allowed me to get out of the Air Force and leave Minot, ND behind for sunny Lompoc, CA where my husband was stationed. I gained the right amount of weight and felt the little flutter of a baby girl in my tummy. Now with my second pregnancy my husband has been tasked to deploy for nine months and I have gain the right amount of weight than some as allowing the little man room to jab, and kick me when ever he pleases. Though my first pregnancy was a breeze I had to have a C-section because she was breech, which at first I was not happy about but now I see a C-section is a blessing, and since we did not allow enough time in between the pregnancies I will have another C-section, which like I said I am so excited about because I do not have to go thru the whole wait till the you go in to labor and I do not have to have labor pains. Now preparing for the little man is a lot different, I have come to realize for ever three racks of little girls clothes there is one rack of little boys clothes, which in my option is poop. There is no clothes, and the cute clothes that there is Brian has bought in 6 month size so the baby can wear is when he gets back. But all complaints a side I am very happy that our little man is healthy and doing great.
