so after my last post... i woke up the next day to having 'real' contractions. i always thought i wouldn't know the difference. there is definitely a difference. i started counting them at about 8:30am. by about 10am my husband kept telling me we should go to the hospital. I was like "no way jose, i'm not going in until i feel like i'm dying. i don't want to get sent home" so every 20 minutes when he'd ask I'd say 'lets just wait a little longer" finally noon rolls around and he says 'i really think we should go'... so i agreed. i told him that if they sent us home we were gonna go do laps and go back, i was not coming back without a baby!!
anyways we got to labor and delivery around 1pm, and usually the doctor takes a while to get there. not this time, she was there right after we got there to check me. i was so hesitant because i wanted to wait longer (if you are 4cm they keep you) so she checked and was like '5cm, ready to go' and i said 'uhm...does that mean i get to have the baby today?" and she laughed and was like 'the way it looks, its gonna happen soon!" so anyways i called before 6pm. when 5pm rolled around i was like, i'm ready!! and minutes later out came the most beautiful baby!!!
i am so blessed... she was so worth the wait. so beautiful and sweet. my older daughter and son are so in love with her... and are all up in her space 24/7. i am so overwhelmed with the love i have for my family. such a wonderful husband and 3 beautiful, perfect kids.... life is good! (even with no sleep!)

its so hard when you are so anxious, have hope each day and feel let down. it is so weird, never had any false alarms, painful contractions or discouragament like this with the first two kids. so i feel like its the first time for me!
anyways today is Nov. 1. beautiful day out, i woke up feeling like today would be a good day... Thanked God for keeping her in while we were all sick.... and then pleaded with Him. haha!!!!
so anyways, i am feeling hopeful again today. every day is just one day closer right? i think inside every mom, you just want to see that the baby is healthy and everything is okay.
thought i'd share this song with you to help remind you that God is in control and things aren't so bad!!

Whenever it gets late in the evening I kind of dread the night. Everyone falls asleep and I am WIDE AWAKE. The odd time I fall asleep, its like full on drooling snoring, scratching unaware sleep...but it only lasts like an hour. Then I start tossing and turning, getting up to go pee, thinking, watching the clock until its morning. I am so uncomfortable!!!
A couple of weeks ago my doctor gave me a muscle relaxant/sleep aid to help with my back spasms and to help me sleep. I took it ONCE and will never take it again! I was like in zombie mode for 3 days. couldn't snap out of it... so while I had a good nights rest, I missed half of the week!
Anyways, When I started this blog I thought I would be more diligent and do more stuff on it daily.. but then I lost motivation. So maybe I'll try doing a better job. Mine as well try to do something while everyone is asleep right? Last night was bad, I pulled all my store credits, and gift cards out of my wallet and went bonkers online shopping. Bought a mass amount of lipgloss from ULTA.com (there were good deals!) and a bunch of accessories from forever21...oh, and some other makeup goodies using my swagbucks giftcards on Amazon. So after everything, I think I spent a total of $1.27 of my money and have all this stuff coming. I love packages!! Then I decided to dye my hair ( I hate roots!) and do a facemask. I think I scared my husband half to death. When he opened his eyes and saw me in a shirt covered in red hair dye and my mask on. Oh the joys of marriage.

I have been so emotional. Watching A Baby Story on TLC doesn't help either...but I feel like I've been so anxious, irritated.. and well, a major B.
I feel like God gives me dreams, not always.. but once in a while I'll have a dream that I knew was from Him. Or I wake up in the middle of the night with a sense of enlightenment. (even though I'm half asleep. Maybe He needs to talk to me then, because in my half sleepy state I won't try to justify or control things). Anyways, I woke up in the middle of the night and felt like I had a switch in my brain go off. I have been so whiny and frustrated. When I woke up I just had the thought "any time I want to whine, complain, ASK for something, barter...I'll just say thank you. I'll start thanking Him for anything and everything that comes to mind". So I woke up a couple more times to go to the bathroom or b/c I was uncomfortable and every time I just simply thanked Him for something. Woke up and said thank you again. I realized how negative I am, b/c every time a negative thought comes in.. I replace it. Needless to say I've probably said thank you a gabillion times already and its not even 10am. haha!!!
anyways, gonna give the kids a warm bath and put some snuggly clothes on them.
have a good day everyone!! and THANK YOU if you read this... I know its always senseless babble!

anyways BB creams usually consist of uv protection/sunscreen, skincare, treatment, calming, makeup primer and foundation all in one. You will rarely find a line with a lot of different colors... as its suppose to just even your skin tone. more like a tinted moisturizer rather than a heavy duty foundation. There are many different brands, but here is my quick review on the one I got the other day. My skin feels great and my pores look strangely smaller! enjoy!

on another note, the other day me and my pregnant friend went shopping (I know, but I needed a break from bedrest!). We were at Target we decided to get the scooters since it hurt so much to walk. I was taking down all the displays and could not stop laughing, my sides still hurt! anyways, we were at Marshall's and when we were in line to pay she discovered this little perfume that is AMAZING!!!!! We ended up searching the store for more, I found one more.. but if I see them again I am going to buy them all!!!

So I am 34 weeks now. Or atleast that's what I'm saying. Originally (according to my period tracking) My due date was Nov. 5th, but when they did all the measurements and stuff at 4 months, they said that I was due Oct. 28th. Now each time I go they go back and forth. why?! lets just go with the measurements people!!! I am feeling in some ways better... she is dropping lower and lower (which I don't understand, because I swear I was walking around with a head between my legs) so I feel less pushing and pressure in my ribs.
I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday and I'm hoping we can set up an induction date because of all the pain. They said to try to keep her in until 37 weeks. Been on bedrest since 31... so 3 more weeks to go and then I'm going on a looooooooooooong walk, doing lunges and possibly jumping jacks! hahaha...
My husband and I are so excited. Can't wait to smell new baby and see what she looks like. My daughter is going to be such a helpful big sister. She was with her brother at just 2 years old, but she just has such a natural nuturing and caring side. It is helpful to me that she is like that! My son.. I think he understands a baby is coming, but then he tells me there's a baby in his belly button too. haha!! he still is a baby to me and I don't want him to grow up. He's just so cuddly.
Oooh, and my sister gets induced this Thursday. I'm so excited!!!!

so the other day I got a coupon in the mail for a free sample size at Bath & Body works and I'm so glad I went in. Found some stuff that makes me even more excited for fall. I've been burning this magnificent candle my husband got me called "cupcake" and it makes the house smell so yummy. Anyways, when I walked into Bath & Body Works they had these little samples of their fall candles coming out (and I got a 20% off coupon! woohoo)
they come in: marshmallow fireside, cinnamon sugar donut, hot chocolate, pumpkin caramel latte, apple crumble.... this is why i LOVE fall and winter!!!!
I'm usually not into buying such expensive candles, so I left the coupon by my husbands side of the bed and went on and on about how good they smelled ;)
I also splurged and got a body butter, this belly ain't getting any smaller!
I am so glad I did, I only wish I discovered it sooner. I so don't like cocoa butter so I have just been using eucerin on my belly. this seriously gives you the softest skin, isn't stuffy and sticky... its like whipped awesomeness. keeps you supple for 24 hours! LOVES IT~!
anyways, I'm soft, smooth and smell good now.. and you can too!! :)

So we decided to go to the beach the other day, I haven't gone in like a year! which is suprprising as we love the beach and its not that far. Initially I was horrified at the thought of exposing my belly.. but then I realized nothing fit... so ce la vie!
I feel like my body has doubled in size. I waddle when I walk, grunt when I try to get up... and occasionally my butt and legs go numb. oh joy!
watching my kids play in the water was so nice. they are good kids...and so beautiful. they really light up my life. Love them so much.
been feeling kind of down lately, so i am trying to focus on the things that are good and that matter. people that matter. life is too good to spend it being in a bad mood!
on another note, i got my first real sunburn...now i feel for my husband so much more and am gonna do a better job with his sunscreen next time!
