A little about me:
I'm 32 & married to the most amazing man, Eddie who is 30. I have a 14 year old daughter from a previous relationship (although Eddie has been her Dad since she was 6). I was 17 when I had her. Eddie and I were married in November 2012 and are now expecting a son in October 2014! We had a bit of a journey for one year trying to conceive our son - I'm sure that someday I will share all of our trials, but for now I'm just going to bask in the joy that we are able to have a child!
It has been 14 years since I have experienced pregnancy and raising a baby so it kind of feels like the first time all over again.

22 weeks: 6 months!
ahhhh!!! 22 weeks! I'm SO excited! Cinco will be here before we know it. I can't wait!
I realized tonight that I'm kind of anxious to have a boy... if this were a girl I would feel confident. It's a good thing I have Eddie! He knows more about boy stuff then I do, lol ;-)
Eddie measured and I am 10.5 inches from back to front of stomach (side).
will report next week after my DR appt.
I'm a little nervous to see where I'm at...
No new ones. The weirdest thing has been happening: I don't want sugar! Whhhhhaaattt?!?? Yep. It's true. I buy sugary foods and then I don't eat them.
Going good. I feel so tired that I don't have the energy for crazy right now.
I'm back to feeling really tired all of the time.
Dizzy/lightheaded feelings have been happening but not too much. Saturday at work I had to go sit down because I felt so dizzy. :(
Loose joints have been making my right knee act up.
My right ankle was swollen today. So gross/weird.
Still walking lots + squats + diamond wall push-ups. Also, waiting tables 5 days a week has to be helping with me staying active. ;)
I am going to start taping off Cinco's room so that we can paint it. I am also going to buy fabric to make curtains for the closet and window. :)
Lots more! Right now Cinco is moving a lot at night and first thing in the morning. I'm hoping that he doesn't follow this "up all night" schedule once he is born.
I had the weirdest dream last night that Cinco was born with full on teeth and breast feeding was a nightmare! He was also talking to me and kind of walk/scooting around... this dream also involved a really nasty maternity room full of clutter, old food, garbage, dirt and cats. I hate cats, clutter, garbage and mess, so this was more of a nightmare than a dream. I started crying in my dream because I wanted to go home and the cats wouldn't stop climbing up my skirt. Eddie was my hero and stepped on the cats tail. :)
I have been having so many weird dreams... maybe I should start a weird dreams section? ;-)
That's all for this week!
I hope you all have a great week! :)
