Long time no post…

Yeah, it’s been a little while but things were crazy lately, between the baby shower (which I’ll post photos later on), weather, my daddy getting sick and also having to take him to the hospital… This weeks have been upside-down…

The good thing is that my dad is actually getting better!! Thank God!, we had to take him to the hospital last Friday, and it looks he’ll be there for at least three more weeks but it’s ok, he’s gonna have a colonoscopy and then an abdominal surgery… Hopefully no complications and he’ll be out and about in no time!… So far he’s responding to medications extremely good!.

Long story though… he has diverticulitis… and two years ago a terrible malpractice of a Gastroenterologist lead my Dad to a severe malnutrition, a lack of certain proteins thad cause him the terrible Fournier’s Gangrene (generated by the malnutrition and the presence of a “normal” bacteria in our bodies but not where is supposed to be normally, this bacteria is E.Coli… please don’t even google Fournier’s Gangrene as image… is horrible…) the curious thing was that… this Fournier’s Gangrene normally develops from the testicular area up to the stomach… but with my dad was the other way around… it started in his stomach going down the way… ANYWAYS… he responded well to the treatment… and although he was still with medical care on a daily basis he could go to work and do stuff as normally after being in bed for about two months… then in the hospital for about 30 days and another month or so at home again… (that was two years ago…) but now… this is still and issue not because of the E.Coli… or stress or the same stupid doctor that didn’t even give him a true treatment… but because now the problem (because of the diverticulosis) is a fistula… so far it’s showing that maybe what caused the Fournier’s Gangrene two years ago was actually the fistula itself… they are trying to check if the fistula wasn’t in fact a result of the malpractice the first doctor did to my dad during a Colonoscopy before everything went downhill!.

So… lets just hope that everything will be ok… so far so good… they are doing ANOTHER colonoscopy ( a good one now) to my dad tomorrow… to see how much of his intestine will have to be sewed or removed… so that he would definitely get well now; but at least he will have to stay at the hospital for another 2 or 3 more weeks…

And now I hear you say… 

AND THE BABY???

I know … I know… but the Baby is still in my womb!! haha!! yesterday we went to our weekly appointment and dear God… we ended up so tired!… apparently now I have 2Cm dilated, baby is in position, but not ready yet; like… he’s upside down but not in the hips yet… and my Gynecologist said that the baby still needs a week or so…

He recommended only 20-30 min of low profile activity -like walking or something- ,  drinking loads of water -as I normally do- , and be overall careful… he really wants this baby to be one more week in the womb… and I don’t mind actually… as for yesterday we had 39.3 weeks I’m still not in the 40th week so… it’s ok; although I feel a little anxious… I want to hold him in my arms soooooooooo bad!!!! but he needs a little more time… and it’s ok…

Wow, I really needed to free m mind with all this, and posting it in here is sooo great!… haha… well…

see ya!!

THE Day

20140127-040728-p.m..jpg

My Shadow Silhouette…

October 19th, 2013…Mexico…a Warm, sunny day…

I woke up… 8:00am… nervous? Not at all… funny enough everyone though I was like super nervous or something of that matter… the truth is… I wasn’t; is not like I didn’t felt anything at all… is just that I was really relaxed, of course I was excited!!!, I mean c’mon is my wedding day!!! but the thing is that… I didn’t get Cold feet, nor nervous, or anxious… I was extremely happy, imagining how my Hubby would look like waiting down the aisle, the look on his face, was he nervous?, or like me really happy?… I started to feel my baby too that day so… it was a load of emotions all over the place but even so I didn’t feel overwhelmed at all.

My dress’ motif

The day went by kinda funny though…  as everyone was bombarding me with the typical questions like “are you nervous? I can’t believe you’re not!” Ugh!!! haha, so I decided to check with time what I was supposed to do… like my make up and stuff… I never checked what I was supposed to do for my make up!!! but I didn’t felt like breaking into a Bridezilla mood just yet haha!..

IMG_6433

yes… I did my make up… cause everytime everyone else does it… is just not right… call me a b$%&$ if you want… 

I swear… never in my life I’ve done my make up with such a calm, slow, almost not-even-doing-it mood!!! ,  I took my time with everything!!!, as I didn’t want any mess up, or crying like- I did a bunch of stuff and ended up looking like a clown!!, so I took al the time in the world… and I don’t regret it at all…

After being sure I had everything the way I wanted (make up-wise), I put on a wide top so I could go to my hair appointment, I went for an Updo… I know myself very well to know that if I intended to dance even for just a bit… (as I was planning to… because even though my baby bump wasn’t big enough to notice I started to feel kinda funny that day… I don’t know why, maybe it was all the excitement…) I will ended up like a big sweaty blob! Not-pretty!!!.

I decided for a “rose” updo… were the hair is crafted and knitted to look like a rose…

Well after that… I still have so much time… so I kinda eat a little… don’t remember really what I had hahaha; anyways… I put on my gown… thinking a lot of stuff at the same time… and my baby squirming inside my belly for the firs time… it was awesome!!!…

4:00pm… my -now- hubby’s brother was at the door… to pick me up so we can go to Church… he actually took a little video of it… – mind note I have to ask for it – my mom was crying so much!… like OMG… so on we went to church… we got there… and OH SURPRISE!!! the groom wasn’t there yet!!! hahahaha. So I stayed in the car for a little while, taking some selfies haha!

Once the groom was there, (he was kinda upset ’cause he wanted to be there before me, but his sisters kinda delayed him haha) the wedding was on, most of our relatives were there; I was so excited… I could see him from the car and kinda notice a glimpse of nervousness in him… so handsome!!!

Everything went as it should, hundreds of photos taken, and most of our relatives crying haha!, but a beautiful wedding… OUR WEDDING…

Our Wedding… Church…

During the Ceremony… I swear I felt the Baby… (I was 21 weeks at the time); it was so weird!! I mean… I thought it was… I don’t know… -pardon my french- passing gas or something… But then I definitely felt him… it was my baby… on one of the most important days of my life… it was AWESOME…

Then, After … the reception… we had some time to freshen up a bit and we had a room in the Hotel were we hosted the reception… oh surprise!!! we got there and this was what we found!: a wide Bed with a drawn heart with rose petals and a bottle of…. apple juice!!! hahaha as I can’t drink…    this was the same kind we used to make a toast during the wedding reception…

It was awesome… incredible… not the way I imagined it… cause it was so much better!!!, We had  a great day… a great wedding, and by the time we were dancing… the baby started moving so much… OMG it was incredible… and because he moved so much… by the end of the night.. I had a bigger baby bump!!! hahaha I think the baby really wanted to be in the party!

Well, a huge post but I really wanted to share this as my baby is about to be born… so many things in my mind but this I cannot pass… so I leave you with another gallery with some pics from the wedding reception… I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed my night…

What happened in October!?

So, October… Lots and lots of things happened!!
As the wedding day was getting around the corner, and the baby bump was getting a bit bigger.. We had to work on the finishing touches of our wedding… Like delivering invitations… Buying stuff and more…

20140122-123925 p.m..jpg

So, we went to Matamoros, to visit my hubby’s aunt and uncle… OMG I felt so sick on the way… The morning sickness was kicking me so hard!! ( stupid the one that called them “morning” sickness… As it can give you a pain in the arse all day!!! At anytime!!! :-/ )

I got to know them, and some of my hubby’s cousins, they’re so warming and welcoming!!!, it was like we know each other for some time!
Some time after that, with almost everything set up already for the wedding… The Religious wedding… ( we are Catholics); we went to get our marriage license at the civil registry…

20140122-043811 p.m..jpg
officially a married couple by law!!!

It was really weird, if I may say… Haha one without even thinking it, expects the typical ambient like in the movies… But in reality is less than romantic… Among documents, witnesses, parents and a hundred other people and babies crying while they were trying to get birth/death certificates and so on and so forth… We were trying to get married xD

Well, in life we imagine and plan a lot of things, but at the end everything gets messed up… Although if you’re lucky and blessed enough… You might just get what you dreamed for… Maybe not the way you dreamed for but still… What your heart deserves 😊

Oh my!

This is the baby bump! Sept 25th 2013

So… OMG… Since the day we got the news about the baby, we were thinking about the wedding… Gee, I’ve never imagine what a pain in the butt it could be!!!

Don’t get me wrong, is amazing y’a know… I mean we wanted to get married before the baby arrived… Otherwise with the baby taking up all of our attention and energy… We wouldn’t do it… So we wanted to do it before the baby is born… And not wanting to be a “chubby” bride in mind (you know baby bump haha) we had to do it fast!… I didn’t want to have the baby bump because I always dreamed of having the perfect dress, being beautiful for that amazing day with my soon-to-be groom… I don’t know, it’s every girl dream doesn’t it?
And besides later on in life I don’t want my baby to think we got married because of we got pregnant… ‘Cause that’s not what happened!; we were going to marry… A year later xD haha! But the baby got earlier than what we planned it to be… So… Yeah…
Anyways… During September… My in-laws throw me a bridal shower!!!

So yeah, as a start… my sisters-in-law and my mother -in-law, read a few words they wrote for me… they almost made me cry!!!, but… they were so thoughtful of everything that I felt so overwhelmed the whole time!!! extremely excited to be welcomed to the family like this… they are all so wonderful I cannot stress it enough!!!

Anyways… it was wonderful!

How was your bridal shower?…

Just a couple of weeks more…

And I’m just doing this???, the thing is that planning a wedding, trying to work and the morning sickness didn’t help at all… I had a couple of journal entries exclusively for the baby, that I will share later on the week; but for now I’ll try to get them here on time before Junior arrives.

baby’s first sonogram, 7 weeks

We were so excited to finally see this beautiful surprise… Yes… Having a baby wasn’t on our “soon to do” list, but we did want to after we got married… A thing we were planning to do by the end of 2014…. BUT the exact day after our first anniversary as boyfriend-girlfriend we found out… We’re pregnant!!! So yeah… What happened afterwards I posted it on my last entry xD.

20140119-034426 p.m..jpg
This was on August 26, 2013… Already showing a little baby bump!!!

News!

20140118-025405 a.m..jpg

So this is the face of a couple who just got the news!!! Expecting a baby!!! Haha totally freaked out!
We’ll this was last June… To be precise… June 24th 2013.
I had a lot of work during that time and though all the blue-mood I had was because of the stress… Turned out to be a positive pregnancy test haha!
I freaked out!, being totally drown with work I just thought everything was bedside of the sleep deprived, almost not eating, stress surrounded weeks I had… Beside that my hubby and I were taken care of that area if you know what I mean lol .
Funnily enough… My hubby was so calmed and not freaked out at all that I was like:
wth!! Didn’t you heard? We’re pregnant!!?
To what he calmly said to me:
yes I heard… Is ok, I was already thinking we might be pregnant…
Obviously I said so?, why are you so calmed???
He said: sweetheart you’re freaking out 😮
I was all: join me, won’t you!?
Then… He did the one thing I need it the most… Looked me in the eye, smile and hugged me so hard, so strong, so great, that my body stopped shaking and I started to cry…
Then he told me:
it’s ok, everything will be ok, will be great!, we are gonna be parents!
And give me a huge smile… As we entered the car…

I swear I don’t know what I would do without this man!..

This is what I looked like the day after we find out we were expecting!!!

I have so much to post… But right now need to sleep…
Bye!
