Rainy weather makes me exhausted.
It's really pretty out though.
I can't believe it's Friday already though. But that's a good thing I guess. Everyday is the same for me, lol. Considering I don't work or go to school. It's a seven-day weekend every week. The baby dropped lower and tomorrow is the baby shower so that's good. :-) I'm just really worried about having baby while dad is out in South Dakota w/grandpa. So things either have to happen before Oct. 11 or after Oct. 20. I'm still talking it over with baby. We're still hashing details...haha.
I love my family. Last night my mom and aunt came over and we soaked our feet and did pedicures/manicures and ordered Q'doba. And watched Peggy Sue Got Married. And stuff. And it was a lot of fun. Tonight I'm going to Home Depot to check out some grills. Then making Snickerdoodles for my daddio. Then going to my parents house . Then Charlie and I are going to have a scrabble battle. haha.
That's about it.

Ughhhhhh. I hurt soooo bad! So we did end up going to the hospital. Everything turned out to be fine. But this baby is ready to come out!!! I'm measuring 37 weeks and just ready. I am exhausted, nesting, sick, uncomfortable. Blahhhh. Hear my complaints! lol. :-) I've started going to some natural childbirth-type classes and a really cool chiropractic office. Tomorrow is another class and we get free massages! Yay! My baby shower is this saturday! Double-yay!

Had a doctors appt. last friday. I am now measuring 36 weeks. Who knows what's going to happen :-) I'm totally nesting now, too. We finally got everything moved in and around and put away and it feels great. It looks like a home now. And this weekend we're going to get more stuff for the nursery and I am planning on cleaning/washing everything. I had the intention of doing it but I've been soooooo exhausted.
Anyway, it feels weird school is starting up again already. I feel kind of sad because I miss all my cooking classes, but it would be way too stressful right now.

Saw baby today :-) He/She has dark hair, a lot of it, and a cuuuuute face. We had a 3-d ultrasound done as well, and got some adorable pics of the face. Baby was smiling again in these ultrasounds, at least it really really looks like it, even the nurse said so.
My aunt and I had a ton of fun at dinner. Seriously, who spends $140 at an Outback? hahaha. :-) Everything has been going pretty well.

Yay :-) My aunt is coming over tonight and we're going to dinner. That is going to be fun :-) Tomorrow is the ultrasound so we're really excited. We have to finally sign up for birth classes too, we're a little late. Oh, and next spring or around there Charlie, Baby, and I are going to Connecticut to visit my friend! I'm so excited!

So on Friday morning I started having contractions. Went to our doctors appt. and took some tests.
I am measuring 32 weeks!

Crazy stuff. So we get another ultrasound on Friday. If I go into labor in the next 4 weeks they won't try to stop it.

64 days till baby!
~
Pretty interesting weekend. Charlie worked Saturday morning. I had intentions of getting up but those soon fell through. Sleep was nice. Found out some awful things on Sunday. Now I feel more alone. Cuddling is nice but it'd be nicer to be able to still trust you with my thoughts and feelings.

Second bridal shower (ha it's over two months after the wedding) was a lot of fun and I love Charlie's family. His cousin's baby Gracie was there and she's adorable. I can't wait to use our new waffle maker. :-)

I'm reading a pretty good book right now. It's called "To Feel Stuff" and now I'm almost done with it.

I'd write more, but my feelings kind of shut off. ha.

I quit Applause today. It's sad cause I like the people I worked with but it was getting too hard.
I think the baby's eyes are open now because there's a LOT more action going on in there! Wow.
I'm getting sick in the morning again. :-(
I'm kind of excited about going back to school but I know once I do I will be upset. I'm not going back until next year, probably winter. Just taking a couple night classes. I know it'll be hard to leave baby!
Nothing else is really happening at the moment, just sick a lot.

So. I'm at my parents now cause it's 98 degrees and they have wonderful a/c. And we do not. :-) Last week I went to Labor & Delivery Triage cause Thursday I was running for the phone and the doorknob caught my belly and Friday I had a huge bruise. When I called they said we'd probably be there for 4 hours for monitoring. But it wasn't that long and everything is okay. Saturday I had to work (my last day! Hooooooray!) And Sunday was really nice :-) Today I had my 1-hour Glucola test where you drink the nasty sugar stuff (which didn't end up being all that bad) and then wait an hour in a noisy waiting room then they stab you in the arm and steal your blood. Okay, I may have been exaggerating a little. It's not really that bad. After drinking all that sugar the baby was going crazy in the waiting room and I couldn't stop laughing! He/she kept kicking my ribs and kicking sooooo hard I was moving around a little. After the test Charlie and I went to Panera :-D Yummy. Then I have to go back to the doc in a couple weeks. The date may be Oct. 28. That's what we're thinking. Anyway, our house is finally coming around we're getting stuff put away and everything. Yay! And it feels good to not have to work anymore.

Worked today. I am officially tired. But only 2 more days and I am on leave. Charlie said I could probably be off work until the baby went to preschool, but I'll probably want to go back at least part-time. I still have to finish school next year. And then 2 more years after that probably. But it's okay. Everything will get done in due time. I can feel where the baby is and how he/she is laying. Like I can feel where his/her back is. And you can see kicks really well now. Everyone keeps feeling my tummy. OH OH OH, we bought a crib last weekend and it came in so we're getting it on Saturday. It's awesome, it's antique walnut and it converts to a toddler bed then to an adult bed. We thought it'd be worth the 300 bones. So baby's nursery is almost done. Probably should have a baby shower soon. Another HUGE purchase we made this week: washer/dryer. After the whole situation with those (long story) we went to sears and picked out a couple Kenmore High Efficiency ones. They're coming today between 4:45-6:45 so that's awesome! They were way expensive ($1700) but they'll pay for themselves and using them won't hurt our energy/gas bills. So yeah, lots of purchases this week. This is a long entry really not about much.

I love my husband!
He just got a very large raise so I can now leave work! And once the baby comes there won't be a hurry for me to go back! :-)
He's really wonderful.

I just didn't think it was possible. But it's happened again. Goodbye.

In other news, I am now the proud owner of a pretty vaccuum! Whoo. hahaha. (I was actually excited about getting it. jeez) To complete my new look I will soon purchase an apron. You can actually see baby move now. Crazy! Like an alien!

Who am I supposed to depend on when I am scared?
It's a lot harder than you think.
~
Went to Labor/Delivery yesterday and got hooked up to a bunch of machines. It's scary when you're normally active baby isn't so active for the weekend. So the nurse comes in and says "So you're expecting a little girl, huh?" Hmm... She says she thought she overheard "her" but... I still think it's a girl! Everything is okay. We went to the doctor today and got everything situated and now it's time to sign up for birth classes. Haha. Not signing up for classes at college. Nope, birth classes. Crazy how that works. Anyway, that's it for now.

Hm. Sad sad day.
I'm really upset that I didn't get in touch with her earlier. I didn't know. :-( My friend and I had the same due dates, but she gave birth to her twin girls. And it's heartbreaking. But I can't talk more about it because I will start crying again.

Okay.
Reception is tomorrow. I know who is working it! YAY! Abbi and Jon :-) That should be fun!

Baby is kicking really hard and I can actually feel where the baby is and what is kicking/punching. haha. I'm going to be having a diaper party sometime real soon, I will get on the details later.

Anyway, gotta go.

Holy crap. I can't believe we're almost in the the 3rd trimester already. This is going so fast, which isn't hard to say anymore since I'm not getting so sick anymore. We painted the nursery and soon things will be set up. We have Charlie's old cradle and everything. Charlie can feel the baby now, so that's really wonderful. And I can all the time. It's really neat to know when my baby is awake and when he/she's not.
That was fun having everyone over yesterday! :-) I miss that.
And having this baby makes me miss the good in the world. I miss the pure, true, good that used to be around (like when you were younger). I only want that for our baby. Which is hard, because the bad things are how you learn.
Anyway, I'm kind of rambling. This weekend will be sooooooo great! My parents are at this house on Lk. MI in Muskegon right now and I've seriously wanted to go swimming for a looooooooooong time. YAY for RELAXING!

Almost vacation time!!! :-D
Today Charlie and I watched Chicken Run and ate breakfast in bed (he made us yummy eggs). It was really really nice. My car actually quit while I was in the process of driving it...on the expressway. So that was scary. It was the battery connection and now it's fixed but yikes. I called the doctor this week, I think Tuesday, because I keep getting sick when I try to eat in the morning/afternoon. They told me to come in cause I kept losing weight. I'm still 2 pounds under my original weight and I'm supposed to have gained more. Well, everything is fine, but they prescribed pills and I am not for taking them. Especially because if I didn't have insurance, to get 20 would be about $800 they said. So next week will be the big vacation! Then Friday the 14th is the reception!

Ready to see my cute little smiley baby?!?!
We got our 3-D ultrasounds yesterday and it was very wonderful. It's way too early for baby to smile but it does look like it. Baby is wayyy cute already! haha :-) We're so excited! Over half way there...

I'll post more pics later.

(Oh, and for those who can't see it well, baby has her/his left hand over that side of her/his face) The other hand is up kind of too.

I LOOOOOVE HIM!
I love being married. The wedding was beautiful. We were all so afraid it would rain because it was raining everywhere else, but it was beautiful out! The park was beautiful with a fountain and flowers and everything. We had a carriage ride afterwards. Our honeymoon was a wonderful time. We stayed at Grand Beach Resort and it was soooo pretty. Everything is going great. This past weekend we had to get an ultrasound, and then this Thursday is our BIG ultrasound. :-) We're so excited. I get lonely cause he gets out of work late but other than that everything is great. :-) We don't have the internet so I may not be online for a while.

I still have a pretty bad cold.
Tried on my dress again today. Finished vows. Am going to finish packing. Yikes. :-)

I lost a couple more pounds too. Crazy how that works.

Ahhh I have a cold!?
Nooooooo
Not cool. I haven't been on here in a while. Bridal shower was fun. Moving is, well, moving. Baby is getting much bigger. Wedding is this FRIDAY!!! Honeymoon to who-knows-where! (Surprises!) Exciting. Work could be going a little smoother but ya know. I felt the baby last week and then we went to our appt. and found out the feet are by my belly button so it was definitely the bambino. That was exciting! And the heart rate went from 150s to 150s-160s. Girl! That's what I think at least. Alexis Evelyn Shick. Or for a boy, Caleb James Shick. Anyway, I have to go to bed for I am sick. And tired.

Bachelorette party was Saturday. Tons of fun! I won money too :-) Thanks Becca! ! !
Ahhh I don't feel so well today.
Lots of stuff to do. Charlie and I still have to finish registering at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. Got my hair done last night. Friday is another doctors appt. :) And Saturday Charlie's mommy and sister want to take me out for corset shopping! :-) Lots of fun. Sunday morning Char and I have to finish registering and then the Bridal Shower is in the afternoon. Then I have to pack. Monday we're going to the flea market and then I have to start moving more stuff. I can't BELIEVE next Friday I will be living in a new house and married. Then next weekend is our honeymoon which I have to pack for.
Oh man there is so much stuff to do! I bought Charlie's ring yesterday but they have to special order it. So it's supposed to come in time.
I'm just babbling so that's about it...
Oh and I'm pretty proud of myself, I actually lost weight, not gained, lost! Crazy.

So my internet hasn't really been working.
But I've been working. A lot. Tiredness.
I got this really neat baby-bath thingy. It's a shower/spa bathtub and it looks really nice. I wish I could fit in it. haha.
I almost peed my pants driving home from work Sunday. You know what's the worst? Sneezing while you're driving. You know what's worse than that? Being pregnant and sneezing while you're driving. hahaha.
I just feel like sleeping. Yesterday I was sooooooooooooo excited about watching the Grey's Anatomy finale. Ahhh I even put a reminder in my phone. haha. I love that show! It was so sad :(
Well other than that nothing really is happening. Still getting stuff around at the new house. I can't believe I'm going to be moving out and married in about 2 1/2 weeks. AND WE HAVEN'T EVEN GOTTEN OUR MARRIAGE LICSENSE YET! That could be a problem...

Schools over! Finals are over! Yay! I won't be going back until next year and it's kind of a relief.
Lately I've been busy moving and working. Workin' workin' workin'. It feels like a dream, it just doesn't feel real to be moving. I mean, right now, I know where everything is. Now I'm going to be in a relatively new place where I have no idea where things are besides Meijer and the mall and work. What the heck.
We have a really nice deck and backyard. And rosebushes! I'm fricken nesting already! hahaha. I want everything clean and I'm planning on planting so much and getting things painted and... ah. Crazy. I just want to stay at home and clean and plant and cook. Is that bad? oh my gosh.
By next week I'm 'supposed' to have gained about 5 pounds and i weighed myself today and I've actually lost weight. But that's okay. Everything's healthy.
Anyway, that's about it for now.

Charlie and I went to the Culinary Picnic today! Lots of fun. Egg tosses and water balloons, and waiter races. And I won a raffle. It was at John Ball and it was so nice out, besides the pond smelling like dead fish.
Then we went to the doctor and heard the baby's heartbeat! YAYYYYY. It was amazing. We were both grinning. Dr. Leary said the babies heart rate was in the 150s...so maybe a girl?!? :D YAY
So excited. My ultrasound is coming up quickly too. But now I have to work...
