Baby Bella Rosa is here!

Aug 04, 2010

I havent updated in a very long time, obviously, since my baby girl is here! lol
She is just shy of 3 weeks old now and doing great! i love her so much and i truly owe my little miracle baby, in large part, to having had gastric bypass!!
She was born 7/16/10 @ 10:21pm weighing 6 lbs. 2 oz. & 18 inches long. Labor was induced and INTENSE, i had two failed epidurals and labored for 49 hours AND pushed for 3 hours w/out any meds OUCH, despite being as tiny as she was she still tore me pretty badly and we needed help from the vacuum to get her out of the birth canal. She may just end up being an only child after all of that LOL

well here she is!

yes found out today we are having a little girl! 
her name will be Bella Rosa, NO im not a twilight fan, lol ive never seen/read any of the twilight movies/books! I fell in love with the name Bella about 6 years ago when i met the most beautiful little girl named bella at a birthday party, and Rosa is a family name (grandmas, moms and my middle name)  I LOVE it!!!


baby is growing!

Jan 05, 2010

had my scheduled ultrasound yesterday and it was AWESOME! baby is measuring just right and still had a strong heartbeat of 176! I have to admit that it still doesnt feel real, i felt like i was watching someone elses baby up on the screen, i dont think it will feel real until i can actually feel all of the kicking and punching ( baby was doing tons of that on the screen yesterday)
I also found a cute little townhouse for rent not too far from home and on the same street as the hospital where i will deliver the baby later this year. I dont like that its only 2 bedroom (was really hoping for 3) BUT it has a two car attached garage AND in unit laundry (big plus with baby on the way) Its about the same size as my apartment as far as square footage is concerned but having the garage and laundry make it seem sooo much bigger, i think it will be a good place. Tomorrow im going to look at ONE more place and then if it doesnt blow me away ill be heading over to the townhome to place a deposit to hold the place until feb 1st!

IM FLIPPIN KNOCKED UP!!!!  yes ladies and gentlemen I AM PREGGERS!!! i am just 5lbs from goal and a lil over 9 months post op and now im preggers! some might be upset by this but im completely terrified LOL but not very happy. I have PCOS and was told early on in life that i would have a hard time getting pregnant if at all. Im super scared because im pretty sure im at super high risk for problems, BUT I WONT SPEAK IT! Im trusting God to get me through this, safe and healthy. OMG OMG seriously hasnt set in at all!!!
