It's been a lil' while....

Ok, so I know it's been a lil while since I've last posted but I'm not gonna lie, I've been SLEEPING, and ALOT during the day! Not so much @ night which is honestly driving me crazy! So now to the updating........
Im now 32weeks!! woohooo!! I feel so much closer now & I'm so happy b/c stick a fork in me b/c I am DONE!! (Keep in mind that it's 12:05 am here, so I dont have my 32 wk pic yet) I will post my 32wk pic once daylight comes! ;) I also have my next OB appt. this Thursday....... Speaking of which....... Our last appt. was 2wks ago so we are now going by monthly until 35wks!! So 2wks ago @ our 30wk appt. my Dr. measured my belly & said that I was measuring GREAT, then followed that with....."He's measuring 2wks AHEAD"!!! WHOA! We weren't expecting that but hey we'll take it! She didn't change our due date though.
She also said that IF she can get me to 36wks then we'll be "golden" & that LO really wouldnt have to be in the NICU for long at all. Hmmmmm, um ok...... I guess!! She said that she thought that I only had about 4-6wks left (2wks ago), so we'll see what she has to say Thurs!! My personal guess is that he'll be about 41/2 wks early, & being born on Sept. 24th, weighing in between 7'2 - 7'6 & about 20inches tall! JMO!! lol
On a completely different note, my parents got 2 new puppies, who I like to call my Fursters!! 2girls: Merle & Harley!! They are both full blooded Great Danes & are so freaking cute, I cant stand it!!
We also had our co-ed baby shower, which was pretty good, minus the drama but I just wont go there! For the most part, we had a pretty good time & had a great turn out & also got lots of GREAT gifts!! So THANK YOU to everyone who came & got us a gift! It really means alot to us!! I haven't uploaded the pix just yet but I will & I'll add some soon!
Aussi has his very 1st soccer game this Sat!! I am so excited for him & he too is super excited!! Now if only Saxon didnt have to work EVERY sat, then he'd be able to go too!!
I also went ahead and ordered Kingston's "Halloween outfit", he's going to be a Skeleton & Aussi said he want's to be a werewolf again this year! He wants his brother to come some what early so I'm healed enough & Kingston is kind of old enough to get out of the house so we can all 4 go "Trick or Treating"!! Aussi is now asking me almost every day when his baby brother is coming!! He's just so excited!! He is going to be the most AMAZING Big Bro EVER!!
Saxon also surprised me today by telling me that he ordered the travel system I have wanted the most, which is the Chico Keyfit 30-Romantic!! I am inlove with it!! It's everything I've wanted in a travel system!! I believe I posted a pic of it down below a while back!! He also ordered a custom made Boppy Cover in my fave blue & white skull pattern on one side & Kingston's name on the other! We cant wait to see it! For the most part I believe we have just about everything we need so far!!

And yet, another L&D visit.... UGH! Tuesday Aug. 10th I called my OB just to ease my mind b/c I had a decrease in fetal movement, thinking I could just go see my OB the next day. Noooo, when I had called, they told me to get to L&D to get monitored..... WAH??? I had absolutely NO intention of going when I had called. To make a long monitoring experience short, all is good but I am on bed rest until my OB tells me any different, I guess!

Aus & I in L&D, he takes great care of his Momma!!

Wed. Aug. 11th I turned 29wks & I feel as though I look HUGE!!


Aug. 12, was Aussi's 1st day of the 2nd grade!! I feel like he is just growing up WAY too fast for my liking!! Wether he likes it or not, he will ALWAYS be my Boo(Baby)!! I happen to know his teacher which made it a bit easier for me & I think it did for him aswell b/c she told his class that we grew up together, so I think that made him feel special. He has hated both Kindergarden & 1st grade but he said that he LOVES the 2nd grade!! Thank you GOD!!! He's so cute I cant even see straight!

Me & my Boo on his 1st day of the 2nd grade!!

Crazy weekend!! More so Crazy Saturday!!

Ok, so my wkend (more like Sat.) was CRAZY!! 1st my Boo (Aussi) has decided he wants to play soccer this season for the very 1st time so I signed him up & he had his "evaluation" Sat. morning & OMG his did AMAZING!! Im so proud of my Boo!! I'm praying he gets on his Uncles team!! He absolutely LOVES soccer, he's truly a "Jack of all trades"!! Evaluations were @9am & lasted to about 10:30am but my goodness it was PAINFULLY hot that early!! I seriously was scared I was going to go into pre-labor! If you didnt know already, when I was 19wks prego, I had gotten "overheated" & started contracting so my OB told me I wasnt aloud to go outside until AFTER 5pm!! WAH?? It's been a rough summer only b/c I feel so sorry for Boo, b/c I couldnt take him swimming or anything! Made it home after evaluations, laid down for about 30min then got up & cleaned my butt off!! I was in so much pain just after cleaning the 1st bathroom, Saxon got upset & told me to stop & that he'd clean when he got home from work, BUT I couldnt, so I paid for it later!
That night, we had to perform at a concert. My Dad had called me a few days prior & told me he wasnt going to let me perform, which was honestly FINE BY ME!! lol! 2 of my nephews stayed the night @ our house with Aussi, so when Saxon got home he & the boys watched the UFC fights & I went to the concert just to "get out" for a lil while!! I get there right b4 my Dad goes on, so I didnt miss anything! I was chatting up w/my twin sisters bf who both are firefighters & he is also a paramedic, anyway, out of no where, a couple ppl shot off a cannon!! YES a REAL cannon, it was above & beyond LOUD!! It scared the crap outta me! I looked @ my twinky's BF & asked if he was ready to deliver Bubby (Kingston) at that moment!! Bubby didnt move for a while after that & I was starting to worry, then my Dad called me on stage to sing the last half of a song (didnt dance or move, just sang). Bubby then started JAMMIN', I think he's going to follow in the families footsteps! lol!
Well I left right after that b/c I honestly dont know how I was still standing. Got home, got in bed, propped my feet up & BAM..... contractions started!! UGH! They were fluctuating between 6 1/2 min to 3 1/2 min & were extremely intense! They lasted for several hrs. I had about 10 or more in an hr. but I knew that if my OB sent me home after having them 1 min apart last sunday then she would deff send me home if I had gone in. Fortunately, they went away & I was able to fall asleep around 4am!! So basically THAT was my Sat.!! Oh so crazy, for me anyway!!
Our Baby Shower is coming up, & we are SOOOOOO excited, we cant even see straight (that includes Boo)! I cant even express how excited he is to become a BIG Brother!! He's going to be amazing & has been very involved in the pregnancy & will be after Bubby is born!! My Boo is so awesome! God seriously blessed me when he made me his Mommy!!!

My Dad Doing what he does best.....Rockin out! w/my 2sisters!

Wow!! it's been almost a yr!!

Ok So i started this blog almost a yr ago & as you can tell i have NOT kept up BUT sooooo much has happened this past year!! So lets get started!!

*Well on the morning of Feb. 15th 2010, I found out we were expecting a BABY!!! I found out right after Sax had gone to work & it killed me to keep my mouth shut ALLLLL DAY!! I went out and got a onesie & card & put in the card that he was going to be a great "Daddy"!! I put the card, onesie & pregnancy test in a bag as a "late" Valentines day gift that i told him i forgot to give him!! He opened the card 1st & didnt catch on to the "Daddy" part then saw the onesie & test & his jaw dropped & asked if i was serious (in a good way)!!! We were both ecstatic!! We told Aussi about 2wks later b/c i unfort have a history of miscarriages, so i didnt want to m/c after telling him, that would have broken his heart!! Everyone is very happy & supportive, we both have great families!!

* @ 9wks I found myself in the E.R. due to bleeding, i was absolutely terrified, seeing as though I have a history of miscarriages. I was in there forever & got an U/S (ultra sound) & come to find out, all was fine!! The E.R. Dr. was absolutely HORRIBLE!! Lets just say he had/has NO bed side manner what so ever! I was to take it easy for the next couple of days!

* Aussi Finally got baptized Catholic!! Took 7 yrs. but we got it done!! WooooHoooo!!

* @ 20wks we found out we were having a BOY!! We are Team BLUE!!! I swore it was a girl but I was deff wrong! I'm so happy that God has blessed me with 2 beautiful sons!!

* @ around 22wks I had another OB apt where she then told me I had a "hemorrhage" in my Uterus!! She told me absolutely nothing else about it! So of course Saxon goes to freak out mode & put me on his own bed & pelvic rest until we had our other U/S 4wks later.

* In the mean time while waiting for the U/S we took a family Vaca with my family which was great, other than my Boo (Aussi) getting very sick!! :( Luckily it was only for 24hrs!!! My older sis got married on the beach to the love of her life, who I am so proud to call my Brother in Law!! Can i just add that she is an AMAZING singer & my bro in law is hands down the most AMAZING artist I have ever met or seen!! NO JOKE!!

* @ around 26wks we finally had another U/S to check on the "hemorrhage", but the tech said it hadn't grown but it hadn't shrunk either and that it was probably just left over from when i was bleeding @ 9wks! THANK GOD!! She then asked if my OB told me that I also had a "placenta sheet"?! Which she didnt but the u/s tech said that both the sheet & hemorrhage were completely FINE!!! again THANK YOU GOD!!!

@ 27wks we had our Maternity Pictures done by AnneJordanPhotography.blogspot.com & can we say AH-Ma-ZING!!!! She will also be at the birth of our son to capture all the 1st moments & also be our photographer from here on out!! We had a BLAST!! I constantly look @ our pix that she had posted the same night & next day (which is EXTREMELY FAST)!!!

* @ 27 1/2 wks I started having what ppl call "Braxton Hicks", ok no problem right?!.......... WRONG!!!! Mine actually turned into real labor contractions! I was personally timing them about 2:30 apart for about 30-1:00 long but once I got to the hospital they were actually 1-2min apart. The nurse checked me & said I was dilated to 1, my OB sent me home anyway & the contractions finally tapered off, though I still get "Braxton Hicks" which SUCK!! My OB did put me on Pelvic Rest for now!!

* I am now currently 28wks & still having those Braxton Hicks several times a day & they can get pretty bad, I also have SEVERE back pain that just wont go away!!!

* Meaning behind Baby Reynolds Wrap name, Kingston James: Kingston is after my G-Daddy (My Dads dad, whom I was VERY close to) b/c he sang with the Legendary Country Music Artist Marty Robbins for 23years & My G-Daddy was known as "The Yodeling King", hence the KING part & also b/c he wrote a song for Marty called "Kingston Girl" that Marty recorded!! I am more than proud of that man & miss him every single day. I tell ppl he was the center of my oreo!! James: is after my other G-Daddy (Big Dad) & Saxon's G-Daddy!!!

* My Baby Shower is set for Aug. 15th @ my parents house, which my dad will be out of town b/c he is going to sing with Bret Michaels....... LUCKY!!! Anyway, I'm super super excited b/c I get to see alot of friends I havent seen in a while but bummed b/c Saxon's family cant make it b/c they all live in South Fla!! YES, I did my own invitations!! I am so very proud of myself too! It took me several days to complete them but they turned out AWESOME!! My older sis helped me with the design but I detailed every last detail!! They fit our family to a "T"!!!

* On another note, Aussi played TBall this summer & fell in love with it!!! My lil Motocrosser loves Baseball!! Well unfort. the season is over, so now he is doing the whole Soccer thing!! He's really excited & Saxon went off & bought him alllllll kinds of soccer equipment!! My Boo ALSO starts school in 1wk!! OMG my Boo is going to the 2nd grade!! He is growing up way too fast for my liking!!! He's already talking about which car he wants when he's 16!!! WHAT??!!! AND he's talking about GIRLS!! He wants a Girl Friend!!! NO BUENO!!! I'm not letting him date till hes' 30!!!! Aus is my heart!! He will always be my "Baby"!! God blessed me with one AMAZING child, I'll tell you that! I love him!!

* Saxon......... WOW, he works his BUTT off!!!! He works atleast 70 hrs a wk & I miss him like crazy, though I do wish he had a GREAT paying job that he didnt have to work as many hrs!!! Im fortunate that I dont have to work right now (all b/c of him)!!! Dont get me wrong, it's deff NOT easy when it comes to money but I guess thats the way it is for just about everyone which really blows!! He's SOOOOO excited to become a "Daddy" even though he's already one AMAZING "Step Dad" to Aussi!! Aus absolutely ADORES him & really looks up to him!! The thing about Saxon is that he is absolutely BRILLIANT!!! Thats not to be taken lightly!! He's a math wiz & can learn anything the 2nd you tell him how to do it!! He's also one of the best BaseBall players I have ever seen!! I LOVE him with all of my heart!! He is truly the love of my life!!

* I have been making onesies for Bubby (Kingston) & shirt for Boo (Aussi)!! I made Boo a Tshirt that says "Big Bro" on it with a skull on it & made Bubby a "matching" one that says "LiL Bro" on it that also has a skull on it!! I also make pacifier clips which seem to be quite a hit!! Though i've only made them for Bubby so far!!
