Sorry, it has been while since I posted but I have been a bit busy. I would like to take this time Welcome My Daughter Alexis Olivia Frayna to this world...She was a wee bit tiny when she was born...4lbs 8oz...but healthy and that is all that matters. She was born by c-section because I would not dilate. She was born at 5:52pm Tuesday, January 17th, 2006. So welcome to our life, my baby girl!!!

Well its Monday and the day is finally here. I will be induced tonight at 7:30pm. How crazy is that!!! I'm not sure if I like it better that I know when I am going to deliver or if it just happened on its own...Kinda scary either way, but I am sure everything will work out. I suppose I need to double check my bags and make sure I have everything...I will keep you updated on all of the gorey details when I get home!!!

To Much At Once!!!!!

Just coming to my 36th week and way to many things are happening at once. We just moved into our new house this weekend which is great, although I'm not sure if Bishop is to comfortable yet because he will not leave our side...lol..and on top of that we went to the doctors and he said that we are going to have to deliver the baby early because her weight is low-Possibly Next Week!!!!!! She weighed in at a whopping 4 1/5 lbs! So the doctor wants to deliver her early so we can actually control and monitor the nutrients she gets. Other than that she seems to be healthy-her heart rate is good, her brain looks good, her little kidneys and bladder looks good, she was practicing breathing so she had the hiccups (and the doctor said that was really good) she's just small. I'm not sure if I am ready...well I guess your never really ready. Needless to say since we just moved in this weekend all of our stuff is everywhere, not to mention the baby's room is sooooo not done, but I figured if she is born weighing 5 lbs, she can sleep in the bassinet for awhile...lol. The funny thing is everyone kept telling me make sure you don't get alot of "newborn"clothes because she probably wont fit in them and if she does she wont fit in them long, so make sure you get some bigger clothes...well guess what 0-3 months is 8-12lbs...so I had to go and buy her the "newborn" clothes that everyone told me not to get (5-8lbs)...no biggie, hopefully she grows fast!!!

34 Weeks and Still Counting

I am now 34 weeks, which means technically I have 3 more weeks until "Full Term" and 6 more weeks until my due date of February 7, 2006. Part of me is so ready to not be pregnant anymore, I miss not being able to sleep on my belly, pains in my back ribs, not fitting in to my nice clothes or taking my wedding ring off an hoping to God I don't loose it because my fingers are swollen; but the other half of is so not ready for this because it really flew by, I have no idea where the time went...I know I keep saying that put it went by ridiculously fast. I guess it was because of the holidays and we were looking for a house and everything happened at once. Thank God it happened around this time because I don't think I can take being 7-9 months pregnant in the 120 degree summer of Las Vegas, NO WAY. So I think when I plan my next child I will make sure my due date comes before May. Anywho...a few weeks ago there was a scare where I did not feel her moving at all...well be careful what you wish for because it will happen moreso than what you expected! She is moving around like crazy! Alot of it is squirming because she is starting to run out of room, but you occasionally will get karate chopped in your spleen really hard or kicked in your stomach(which is not nice right after you eat considering you stomach is squashed as it is). That is not to mention when she decides to stretch...your stomach will feel like its stretching in ways it really shouldn't be stretching which feels really weird. But I really can't complain, I doesn't hurt and at least I know she is healthy because she moves around so much. I do have another ultrasound on January 6th to see if her weight has gone up any, my doctor said she just might be a small baby or a late bloomer and gain all of her wait at once. Who knows, we will find out in a week and a half. But I really do not mind if she is small as long as she is healthy-and from the way she kicks and punches I really think she's just dandy!!!

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas to everyone...I hope you had a very happy holiday, receiving all of the wonderful gifts you wanted and some you never expected. Like me...I love my Christmas gift, it was very unexpected...I got a parakeet!! We named him Larry...Larry Bird that is...Needless to say the other animals absolutely love him too. Unfortunately Larry is a bit shy and hasn't moved from his perch all day, but I'm sure he will be good and peppy in no time!!! So welcome to our family...Mr. Larry Bird!!!!!

My Hero!!

This has absolutely nothing to do with my pregnancy but I figured I write about the new obsession....Guitar Hero for Playstation 2....One of the most addictive games every created!!!! Guitar Hero is very similar to the Dance Revolution Game...(for all of you geeks that want to learn how to dance like Brittney Spears...lol...nah just kidding...I never played it but it does look like fun). The game comes with you very own Gibson guitar(not real by the way). You get to rock out to some of the oldies but goodies like Ozzy, Cream, Motorhead and Boston as well as some new songs by Queens of the Stone Age and Franz Ferdinand. This game is great!!! It really makes you want to play guitar...I have a guitar at home and never touch it because I am so impatient, but this game really makes you want to play. I give it 5 stars for great music and addiction factor!!!!
