A sleeping baby means finally a chance to blog. Yes a baby. I finally had him.
Kaiden Eric Born May 25th 2010 at 6AM after about 15 hours of labor and a last minute emergency C-Section at 9lbs and 7oz.
It has been a crazy week and a half and it's so surreal to finally meet my little boy. He is the cutest baby I have EVER seen and I have never been so in love. My favorite moments with him is in the morning when I wake up and see his cute little face everyday.

This morning I went to the annual mother's day brunch with my mom and my sister and all the other woman in my immediate family. It's always fun every year (granted I have never been more uncomfortable in my life1) and it's just a great way to bond. Afterwards me and my mom and my sister and my brother all went to the holmdel commons. We had some last minute things we had to pick up from ulta and bestbuy. I still have to straighten up my room and pack my bag, but everyone else is ready. John has a bag packed, the baby has his take home outfit ready, and we have a name picked out (even just in case it is a girl) but I am not prepared, mentally or physically. I am procrastinating even though I really shouldn't because guess what? I feel like crap, and I have since last night. I can't stand up for more then a few minutes, and its unbearable to walk, and my mom seems to be under the impression that this is beginning of labor (like she's done this before or something!?) So maybe no would be the best time to get all of these things out of the way. Well that's all for now, and I am can almost guarantee the next time I post I will be a MOM. See ya then!!

This past weekend (with help from John, Mom and Scott) I got my room organized, laundry somewhat done, and carpet shampooed all for little ******. Oh sorry we picked a name but I just can't tell anyone :) You can try and guess though, who-ever guesses right wins a prize! They get to spend the entire day with the baby when he gets here! Ahahha.

This weekend is my baby shower and I am soooooo excited!

He was also talking about how much he wanted to live with baby, which I completely understand and I typed up a budget to show him to see that we could probably move in by September with money saved up and that I could start work part time (15-20hrs) in October and take a few classes! I hope if I show him the numbers it'll show him that it's possible. Oh the stress of babies and money and only being 20. God only gives you what you can handle, right?
I'm 34 Weeks tomorrow. HOLY COW!? Where did the time go? Baby is running out of room for sure. My ribs on the left side are actually sore. I bet he's going to be tall like his Daddy. Mom got a crib (no mattress) and a changing table that is beautiful for a AMAZING price. It's used and looks like it's in MINT condition.
My attention span is to short. I'm done for now. GOODBYE!

Today I'm at the real estate office working with my mom, bored as heck. I haven't really had the motivation or time to update my blog. I'm always to tired or busy. I'm 33 weeks as of today (7 weeks to go) and let me tell you, BOY am I over it! My sister-in-law (for all intense purposes) Jenn finally had HER little girl and it's making me itch to have this baby even sooner. I got to go play mommy all day yesterday and I loved every minute of it (even the crying and screaming and poopy diapers). I know it'll be different with my son, i'll be ten times more exhausted and i wont get to give him back and go home at the end of the day, but I'm still very excited. I love babies. And I KNOW I'm going to be infatuated with mine. :) John on the other hand is starting to worry me a little. His mom MADE him hold little Mckenna. It's like he's scared of her or something. Hardly goes near her or me for that matter when I'm holding her. Will that be different when it's his own son? He told me he had a dream that he picked up our baby and broke his back. I told him that he probably will have a hundred more dreams just like that until the baby comes and even worse ones when the baby is here, that he's just nervous. I have NO idea what to do.

Yesterday, after a bit of snow in the morning I escaped the house to go hang out with Chelsea and John at Chelsea's house. We all sat around in our PJs all day (everyone's work was canceled) and had a snow day together. And then for dinner we all went to the diner and got a ton of food(I'm pretty sure my waiter thought we were nuts). Afterwards we went back to the house and hung out. The boys played video games and me and Chelsea were doing everything we could think of to try and annoy them (that's what girls are for). It was a fun relaxing day. I hope everyone else had a fun snow day too.
Today I will be hanging out with Chelsea in the morning, for some desperately needed girl time. Then I hope to come home, work on my room some more and then around 4 John and all his roommates and I are going to a show that his roommate RJ is performing at. Hope it's not too loud for baby.

Anemia is never fun — it takes away your lovely pregnancy glow, making you pale, extremely weak, easily tired or breathless, and can sometimes even lead to fainting. Don't want to go there? Here's a simple four-step plan you can follow to keep your iron pumped up:
Four Steps to Avoiding Anemia
Step 1: Take an iron supplement.
Although there are plenty of ways to get iron from the foods you eat, it's always good to have extra insurance when it comes to this vital nutrient. Taking a 30 to 50 mg iron supplement during the crucial second half of your pregnancy will ensure that you're getting what you and your baby need. (If your practitioner notes that your iron stores are particularly low, he or she may recommend a higher dosage supplement.) Remember that this supplement should be taken in addition to your prenatal vitamins. Be certain to talk to your practitioner about the best time of day to take your vitamin so it's not hard on your tummy; there are also different kinds of iron supplements to try (some are slow release) if they're giving you digestive unrest.
Step 2: Eat yer spinach!
Popeye said a mouthful — a mouthful you should consider, too. If spinach isn't appealing (though think out of the can here — you can also serve spinach up fresh in a salad with sliced strawberries, wilted under seared fish or grilled meat, or sautéed with pasta and cheese), there are lots of other iron-rich foods you can pump your diet up with, including lean beef or buffalo, duck, sardines, cooked clams, oysters, mussels, and shrimp, cooked dried beans, edamame and other soy products, oat bran, barley, dried fruit, Jerusalem artichokes, and seaweed.
Step 3. Keep your caffeine down.
Caffeine may perk you up, but it dashes the effects of iron. If you wash down that iron-rich steak with a cola (or that bag of trail mix with a coffee), you're reducing the amount of iron that gets absorbed into your system.
Step 4. Let vitamin C work in your favor.
Vitamin C is iron's best bud (apart from Popeye), since it's well known to improve iron absorption. So take a glass of OJ with that iron supplement, a side of red pepper with those shrimp, or some fresh strawberries in your oat bran cereal.
Maybe I'll start glowing now! I'll sure save on electricity, Haha. How corny am I?
I had alot of tests this week in school and I hope I did well on all of them. I also went and played with the puppies on Sunday at my sisters, which I might end up doing again tomorrow while Mom is in her class. (I really love those puppies) I better go do some homework.

- I'm 25 weeks and one day
- I'm tired and cranky from a long day of school (which i am still at)
- My back has been killllllling me lately, but I took a nice bath the other day and that seemed to help, not only my aches and pains but i used this sesame oil and my dry skin stopped itching for a couple days. My mother however was concerned she was going to have to come help me out. She didn't, but the though of that kinda made me laugh.
- The baby's kicks have been getting harder and harder and harder day by day. He kicks after i eat chocolate or when i have been sitting or laying down for a while (like when i'm trying to go to bed, or when he wants me to wake up in the morning) When am i supposed to start counting kicks?
- Next thursday I have to get more blood work to test for gestational diabetes? I supposedly have to drink a sugary substance and then wait an hour and have them take my blood. Why are all these dumb pregnancy test include some sort of special instructions? (ie. Level 2 ultrasound included me drink 40oz of water and then not peeing for 4 hours!!!) I shouldn't say dumb, they're just trying to make sure me and baby are healthy, but really!
that's all for now!
