Just 10 more weeks

Baby Galilea is almost here! I can't believe how fast this year went by (I found out SO early I was pregnant that it seems I've been pregnant all year!) and I can't wait for baby Galilea to be born.

Everything is going well and she's on the bigger size, but so far we're on track. We have everything we need for her to be with us, and not it's just time to wait... LOL

Hope you're all doing well and having a great September!

27 weeks

i really wanna be done with this pregnancy. 
i'm exhausted!
kids are not sleeping @ night and i'm having so much trouble staying sleep or sleeping for that matter.

i don't feel like doing anything for the baby, which sucks.
i should be so excited about having another baby.
i'm not.

i'm taking too many meds to keep baby healthy.
i'm doing ok w/ weight ...
but the diabetes is worse than before :( 

i don't have a ring on my ring finger not because it doesn't fit...
one day i got very upset and i threw it in the garbage.
never bought another one.
not intending to either.
that was about 2 1/2 years ago
(i've been married 7 years)

my laundry is calling me

Summer Update :)

On July 1st we found out we're expecting another girl... so the name picking began with really bad luck. Out of the 10 names we had, we couldn't agree on any.  We did find a name, though. It's super cute and we'll reveal it once she's born.

I'm getting pretty big and have only gained 5-8 lbs (depends on the day AND time of the day). She's starting to be more active and I can see her movements outside my belly :) It's so freaking cool!!!! :)

Everything is pretty busy and exhausting around here, but we're all doing great! Hope you're all having a great summer!

1st bday

Smash cake courtesy of Betty Crocker... LOL 

Leah turned one like 2 weeks ago (OMG! She's already ONE!) and there were many things I planned on doing for her special day; however, a sciatica attack ruined 98% of the plans so I had to find other things to do. We did the smash cake on her actual bday, and then we had a small party on Saturday.

Bday cake courtesy of Betty Crocker, as well :)

I didn't want to waste my time and $ on a cake, so I just made something very simple: went to the store, Betty Crocker vanilla cake mix, some frosting, peaches, and sprinkles... and tadaaaaaaaaa! We had a bday cake!

I decided she would wear a special dress for her party so I spent about 2-3 months working on this dress, which turn out SO beautiful!!! I seriously love how the dress came out and how gorgeous she looked in it!

On Sunday afternoon I got to see this on my Facebook feed. I loved how she worded her status and I really thought how few women say this on Mother's Day. 

I got a letter from a German pal today and she wrote:
It was great to get your letter! You're pregnant again - I envy you :) Yes - [...] as you can imagine I'm still not pregnant and I would, at once, trade positions with you.
It was heartbreaking b/c she's been trying to get pregnant for quite a while, and here I am... with baby #3 who came a little unexpected. Of course I can't trade places with her the same way I can't trade places with all my friends experiencing infertility. I can't feel any guilty every time this friend tells me: 'you're so lucky you can bear children'. With every pregnancy I had a friend experiencing miscarriages, problems getting pregnant, etc. 

Life is so unfair, sometimes. I just hope there's some type of hope for my German pal and her final IVF works for them and they're able to get pregnant and have a baby.

Why is everybody pregnant?

About a month ago we found out we'll be parents again! Just 2 days after we gave away EVERYTHING baby related. What a joke, right? 

There were more than 50 people who knew I was pregnant so I decided to make it public on Facebook to avoid my mother's trying so hard to keep it a secret, and also because we had been making plans/arrangements to go to Argentina in October. Now, with the arrival of baby Surprise at the end of November we had to change all our plans and get ready to the new addition.

Being pregnant for me is not fun. I don't find it cute, nice, sexy, glamorous, exciting, glowing. Nope. Pregnancy for me is a very lonely period, it's full of meds and prickling my fingers, and measuring food and carbs and taking extra care of myself. I don't eat for 2: I can barely eat for me! So... NO. I'm not happy I'm pregnant but I'm happy I'm not an elephant that has to carry the baby for 24 months, so in a way I'm happy :P

As for symptoms, this time around it feels like Mika's pregnancy all over again. Even the freaking birds!!! OMG I can't stand those damn birds chirping at 3am! I can't sleep, I'm in a lot of pain and I lack the energy to even get up and go take a shower. Add that to a 3 1/2 year old full of energy and a sweet baby girl who's starting to walk. 

Oh well... I miss my days as a single woman and having no responsabilities. I need a vacation! :)

Hello Sasha!

We picked up Sasha from the pound on Monday.
Hopefully, she'll grow up around Mika and have many adventure with him.

She's a German Shepherd mix and she's a very energetic puppy who pees and poops all over!  We're building her a nice house and we love her so much! She's a super cute puppy!

Welcome to our family, Sasha!
We love you!
