Last working week!!

This must be one of the few mondays in my life when I'm not hating the fact it's monday..LOL, that's because this is my last working monday before my maternity leave! I'm so happy, I am REALLY tired, I'm not sleeping well at all, I keep waking up in the middle of the night, not only to go peeing, but also because I'm having a hard time finding a comfortable position. It seems when I sleep to my right side, I press something because then I wake up with a huge the left side, I feel a little uncomfortable, my left arm can't seem to find a correct way to be ....and lying on my back, it's impossible, I feel all my weight over my back and it's really painful....So well, this maternity leave really comes in at a good time...

Officially in my country, working women have maternity leave from week 34 on (42 days before birth) and then 84 days after the baby is doctor will give me the permission from week 32 on (because it's allowed to start the maternity leave up to 2 weeks before the official date, assuming the baby will be born earlier), because I'm really tired and my baby is big and all....

Also I'm happy because the nursery is taking form!! We had the room painted on saturday, a wonderful light blue, pretty light! This week the crib and changer will be ready (hopefully), so then I can start to wash the clothes and put them in the drawers and all. Quilt and protectors are ready, curtains are ready....this is getting pretty exciting!!!

Hope everyone has a nice week!!!

30 weeks!!

I finally reached the 30 week milestone....I feel like now I'm really on the final stretch!!

I've been feeling pretty tired, I have huge backache and strange pains all over my body LOL!!

I don't remember if I already told you, but I went to the nutritionist, who was very nice, and she gave me a "diet" that's pretty manageable, it's more than anything to control the sugar in my blood, but I can eat almost anything (except sugar, of course), so I've been behaving like a good girl and hopefully, I won't develop diabetes! I have to take a blood exam next week to see how I'm doing!

I can't wait for my maternity leave to start (june 4th!) but I have a lot of work to do!!

What else? we've been doing a lot of stuff for the baby, crib and changing table are being made, clothes he has lots! We also bought the stroller (Graco Travel System Mosaic), and next week we'll have the room painted! I'm getting very anxious and excited at the same time!!

Baby M is moving like an acrobat! I get a little worried sometimes because there are some times when I feel like he's coming out! Have anyone felt that? it's like a kick WAAAY down....curious!!

And well, peeing is getting really an issue, last night I went 4 times! I mean come on! and by 11 o'clock I had gone 3 more times! It's really annoying....!!!

Well, that's my news for now, it's getting really cold down here, which I find very convenient for my swelling!!

Next OB/GYN appt: june 1st

Happy Birthday to Myself!!

Today I'm turning last year of my twenties!!!

I'm very happy! I love my birthdays!! Everybody congratulating me, remembering me, I love it!!! I'm really enjoying every minute of it...

And well, this comes as a special birthday, with my baby inside of's my last birthday without a son!I mean, he's already with me, but you know what I mean!!!!

Oh and by the way, I had a nice appt with my OB/GYN last friday, I barely gained more weight, but I still have to go to the nutritionist so she can give me some diet....but in general terms, I'm really fine, the baby is growing healthy and he's still "standing" (not in position yet), kicking like hell!!!

Today I went to the diabetologist, he told me I'm ok, although my glucose is a little high, so to avoid any complications such us pregnancy diabetes, I have to go to a nutritionist so she can give me some diet....this of course, because I've gained too much weight!

But at least I'm healthy, I was a little worried to have something more serious, but no, it's only too much junk food!! LOL...

Tomorrow I have to go to the OB/GYN, and well, I haven't written because there's not much going on with my life...I'm very tired, my belly is really HUGE! But in general terms, I feel ok! LOL

Well, the baby has a LOT of clothes that we've been buying and also presents! I find baby clothes so cute I could spend my whole income buying stuff LOL so I have to contain a bit...E too!! We also bought some fabrics to make the quilt, bumbers and curtains (my mom has this lady that makes all that stuff) everything's going very well!!

The baby is kicking harder everyday, and lower I think! it makes me want to pee every hour!! I'm already 27.5 weeks, so 12.5 more weeks to go!
