28 weeks and counting!

We have 12 weeks to go!! Seems so close yet so far away! We have so much to do! We haven't even started the nursery! I think I just need to go to Lowe's and buy some primer so Gil can just start painting the room! We basically know everything we want for the nursery and what it ideally should look like, but we just need to put that plan in to action.

I also have some updated pictures! These holidays have been really crazy and really busy, so I haven't been posting pics! I have been taking them, so here they are!

25 weeks 2 days
26 weeks

27 Weeks

For the holidays we all had a great day! Sadie got some cute outfits and she bought a cute outfit to wear just for her daddy! See......

For Christmas day we went over to Ft. Lauderdale and saw my Step-dad and Step bro and his family. We had breakfast and Sadie REALLY liked french toast. Then we went to a family friend's house, the Conforti's. They knew me when my mom was pregnant with me about the same as Sadie now! Amazing how time flies! 25 years and still doing Christmas together! We had a really fun and tiresome day, but it was awesome!

I am happy the holidays are almost over. I will have much more time to get everything together and really prepare for Sadie's arrival! Can't wait to actually meet our little girl!

Dr appt on Wednesday

We went to the Doctor on Tuesday and Sadie must have been soooo excited, or just finished a work out or something because her heart was POUNDING SOO LOUD! The Doctor was very impressed with her as was I and Gil! The Dr even turned the volume down on his little machine thing and it was still so loud!

I also had to do my gestational diabetes test. Drank some REALLY sweet orange sugar water on the way and then they took 2 things of blood at the end of the appointment. We shall see what the results are soon!

We go back to the doctor in a couple of weeks and either this next time or the time after we will see our little girl again. Doctor wants to measure her and make sure she is still perfect!!

Everything else is going good! We gotta get working on the nursery...I keep telling Gil I want to have a garage sale to get rid of our old bed and some other stuff that we have, and he keeps saying I'm not gonna do it...I gotta get it together and just prove him wrong! Sooner rather than later I'm gonna do it and make some $$ to spend on Sadie!! YAY!!

A game...

So my friend Jenn created a game on and I copied her! Make a guess about Sadie's weight, length, time of arrival, and date of arrival! The link is on the right in the blog!

It's soo fun and there are quite a few guesses...I am guessing a small baby before my due date! LOL...typical for an expectant mom! Who would want a HUGE baby after their due date in all honesty?

Really, I just want her to be healthy! Can't wait to see all of guesses and to meet our little girl!

Sadie's nursery

Gil and I went to babies R Us last weekend and I think after much debate we have decided on the Delta Soho set in white. Here are the pics:

We have decided to pain the walls in the Nursery a light purple and we are looking for a bedding set and decor for the room. We like beachy stuff, but we want her to have a girly beachy room, so we shall see how it ends up!

After we were at Babies R Us I decided to go online and start a registry...I think I put like 5 things on there, but nothing major or anything that will DEFINITELY stick. I know I am getting quite a few things from my best friend Bevy...she's giving me a stroller and car seat set AKA a travel system, as well as a bassinet, clothes, a diaper disposal, bath tub, boppy, and some other stuff. I feel SOOO blessed! AND I have already received a vibrating swing from one of my mom's friends. I can't believe how much stuff is coming, but how much more there is to get for our little girl!

On another note... My belly is getting big. More and more everyday Sadie is moving around in there and growing and everyone keeps telling me I'm getting big...If I'm getting big now how the heck am I gonna look in 3 more months? I will post belly pics soon!

It's been a while!

WOW!! I just realized I haven't updated since our anniversary! November was a very busy month! I worked a lot, went to Ft. lauderdale to see Legally Blonde...Sadie LOVED the show, and then before I knew it, we had family coming in to town for thanksgiving and now it is December 1st!

So, some updates...Sadie's been growing like a mad woman, dancing up a storm inside of me! Some days she is MUCH more active than others...but she is ALWAYS wide awake when I'm ready to go to bed. She must know what time it is. One time I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and before I was to the toilet and back to the bed she was squirming around!

Below are pictures from 21 weeks, 23 weeks, 23.5 weeks, and 24 weeks. My belly REALLY popped after week 22! It is soo crazy! Gil is really in to taking lots and lots of pictures of me now. It's wonderful! I am glad you can finally tell I'm preggo and not just having a fat day! I can no longer zipper or button my pants, so thank god for belly bands! It will soon be time to invest in some maternity pants!

I like when people ask when I'm due and how I'm feeling, but sometimes some people get a little TOO personal...I usually try not to let it bother me, but sometimes it just erks me!
Tomorrow is my next Doctor's appointment. I am figuring we won't have an ultrasound, but I now have a ton more questions to ask the doc like...what do hiccups feel like, what do braxton hicks feel like, and some other things I can't think of now!
Ok, enough chitter are the goods...

Our 1st Anniversary!

Today was a wonderful day of 1st's!

Our first anniversary was very relaxing and a wonderful look back at our first year of marriage together! Last night we went on a sunset dinner cruise on the Sanibel Harbour Princess...coincidentally, we both figured out we loved each other on one in the Keys almost 4 years ago. Anyways, it was very nice to spend time together and enjoy a beautiful sunset from a boat...just like we did at our wedding! Today we relaxed by the pool at the hotel we stayed at last night. Then we headed out making a few stops along the way and just doing whatever we wanted! We stopped at Publix on the way home and picked up some dinner. We cooked together and then enjoyed the top tier of our wedding cake. BTW my mom REALLY knows how to keep something from getting freezer burned! That thing had about 74 layers of clear wrap around it inside a ziploc bag! It still tasted yummy though! It was so wonderful to just enjoy each other and not have anything to worry about.

Another 1st for today was that Gilbert felt Sadie move! He was so excited! He was talking to her and then she started moving and I told him to put his hand on, and everytime he started talking to her she would move. Very weird, but so exciting for him!

The final first is I FINALLY can see a bump! A picture says a thousand here you go!

I think it's pretty awesome! My husband and I are so happy with our first year of marriage, and can't wait for the many more years to come...and of course our baby girl Sadie!!!

Preparing the house!

We are growing a family, so that means we need to go big...they say bigger is better and in this furniture situation I HAVE to agree!!!

Last week we went to Rooms to Go and got our Dining room set and a new bed! Halle-Freakin-Luyah for a king size bed is all I have to say!!

Here are pics of the furniture!

Half Baked...

So Sadie is half way here! I think it's funny that she is half baked! Gil likes to say we have a bagel in the oven instead of a bun! He's silly...even more he insists that she is Jewban flavor...Jewish and Cuban! :)

Everything is moving along the way it should be. She measured perfectly at the ultrasound, everything is normal normal normal! My belly is starting to grow! When Gil went to take the pictures he asked me if I was pushing my tummy out and I said "no" and he got SOO excited!

I took my first Prenatal Yoga class today and Sadie LOVED it...well she was squirming around in there while I was supposed to be meditating...very difficult to meditate with a little one having a party inside of you!

So here are the half way pictures! The first is a super close up...really shows the roundness of my belly! The other 2 are the regular weekly ones, but the side view definitely shows some growth! YAY!

The answer...received!


Her name is Sadie James Suarez! We are in love with her even more so now that we know she is a her/she than before! We are so excited!

We found out on 10/27/09...our ultrasound appointment was so fun! Below are some pics from the ultrasound! There aren't any pictures showing that Sadie's a girl...because since she's a girl there isn't anything to see! LOL

You can see her Spine and side Profile

She's looking at her mommy and daddy and waving at us!!

I was 19 1/2 weeks along in this ultrasound. My due date is still right around March 18-22, 2010! Sadie weighed in at 10.5 oz! She is just soo precious! Coming soon are my middle of the road pics! Sadie is half-baked...YIKES!!!

A doctor's appointment about answers...

Today was soo exciting! I got some answers to questions I've been wondering about and some things I really wasn't wondering about, but now know!

Q: Do I have a lot of gas or is the baby moving around and that's what I feel?
A: My baby is punching me! All 5 1/2 inches and 7 or so ounces of it!

Q: What is my blood type?
A: O+

Q: Do I have any STDs?
A: No

Q: Have I been drinking alcohol or taking drugs?
A: Nope

Q: Do I have the cystic fibrosis gene?
A: No

Q: Should I get the Flu and Swine Flu Vaccines
A: Yes...ASAP!

Probably there were a bunch more answered, but the one that I've decided I want to know is AM I HAVING A BOY OR A GIRL?!?! Well, that answer was not given today, even though we were greatly teased by being put in the room with the ultrasound machine. The doctor did have me schedule an appointment for this coming Tuesday with the U/S tech and we will find out the sex! I am soo excited! I know I have quite a few people waiting to know, one especially being my hubby! SOON MY FRIENDS...I may even have a video of the baby...the Dr. told me to bring a CD-R to the next appointment.

We did hear the heartbeat, it was about 140, and Gil got so very excited...he later decides to tell me he will probably pass out at the next appt when we find out the sex...GREAT! I know he'll be fine, but he is so emotional sometimes. I love it! I can't wait to have our own little one!

I think that's all for now. If I think of something I'll let you know! I am happy for my answers and look forward to the answer to the BIG question!!

Time for a group update!

So, Work has TOTALLY been kicking my booty...I am there pretty long hours and when I come home, well it's just time to go to bed! I have the opportunity now, as I sit in an empty house on this beautiful Sunday...My windows are open and there is a BEAUTIFUL breeze update you about the last couple of weeks.

As the weeks pass, I slowly but surely am leaning towards finding out if we are having a boy or a girl. As the 18 week mark arrives tomorrow, and I have an appointment on Wednesday, and I HAVEN'T had an ultrasound in 13 weeks...I think it's time to whip my Ob into shape and get an ultrasound. I will DEFINITELY keep you posted about the outcome.
Nothing's really changed, still have headaches every so often, but no other sickness or over exhaustion or anything of that sort...I think I have been really blessed without illnesses or symptoms for the first 18 weeks!
We have been taking pictures, but my belly doesn't seem to be growing!!!! DANG! I want something to show for these last 18 weeks. I know it has to be, and it is, but not noticeably. I had to buy a belly band yesterday cause jeans are just too tight now! I know I am crazy for wanting my belly to grow so much, because everyone I talk to who is REALLY preggo or just had a baby is like, you are definitely going to want it to shrink at the end. Anyways, enough's the pics:

13 weeks

14 weeks

17 weeks
Is there a difference? I don't see it! I think I just look fat! Well, until next time...hopefully after the Dr. appt WITH an ultrasound and gender determination! We shall see!!!

Catching up

Well...I've been away for a while, but now it is time to get back on track! I have been feeling great, most of the time. I have headaches every so often. Nothin too exciting to mention. I wish when I went to the Dr's they would do a freakin ultrasound! I have friends that are a few weeks behind and have seen their babies 3 or 4 times....I saw mine when it was a peanut, at 5 1/2 weeks! I am now almost 17...WTF?!?!

I gotta talk to my Dr. He's a great Dr, and obviously not worried about it, but I just wanna see squirmy arms and legs and our baby in general...We should be able to find out the sex soon...originally I didn't want to know, but I think I may be moving in the direction to find out...we shall see!

I will start doing my regular postings on Monday...I will also update my tummy pics. I don't think there is a difference, I just think I look like a fatty! Can't wait for your opinions!!

11 Weeks...a little delayed!

I am at 11 weeks and feeling good...still not sleeping so great, but hopefully soon it will get better! We finally took pictures...I don't look preggo, just Fat LOL

I am working a lot more which I think may have caused a little spotting today! Kinda scary, but hopefully that's all it was was a little and we just keep moving along! I have to call the Dr on Tuesday to hopefully make an appointment for really soon! Hopefully some time this week or Monday morning! I want to hear our baby's HB and make sure everything is OK!

Insomnia is probably the worst thing EVER!!!

I have been waking up about 4:30 or 5 and I HAVE to I go, then when I get back in bed I can NOT fall back asleep...I go into a daze, and kinda fall asleep, but it's not good sleep! I hate it! I was always a great sleeper, boy is this baby changing me!! YIKES!!

My very eventful unborn child...

We took a trip to Key West from Satuday, August 15-Tuesday, August 18. We had a great time!

Sunday we went out on the boat and then jumped off a dock...the baby did a back flip (well I did, and the baby just came along!), then one of the other people there said to their friends that I had a more adventurous unborn child then they were! LOL We didn't do any snorkeling :( because the storm on Saturday kicked up too much sand to see anything.

Monday we got our first prenatal massage and facial, a nice birthday surprise from my hubby! Then we took the Conch tour train around Key West and finished the day at the shipwreck museum! We also used the mopeds and road all around Key West! The mopeds were SOO fun!

Tuesday we went snorkeling about 6 miles off of Key West, we saw a baracuda, some HUGE parrot fish and some other fun little fish! After snorkeling we snuck in to the Westin Hotel and hung by the pool and then we went to the Hemingway house...we saw 6-toed cats and the house...the cats were cool...the house was just OK. After that it was time to head home. We stopped a few times on the way back and just enjoyed a relaxing ride home!

What a fun extended weekend we had!! Our little one is just being so adventurous already!!

So, NOTHING sounds good to eat? Why is that? I think of things and just think immediately after...YUCK!

HELP! I need to nurture this baby!!!

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

Dr Appt numero dos!!

So, this appointment was not as eventful as the first one... They sucked A LOT of blood, I peed in a cup again, and I will every time I go, and they took some (TMI) vaginal cultures to make sure there aren't any infections!

The Dr and I talked about different tests to do, we decided to do a Tay-sachs due to my ancestry, and cystic Fibrosis too...he didn't recommend anything else, so we should be good to go!

We go back in 4 weeks for another ultrasound and heartbeat listening to on a little thing that looks like a microphone and speaker! Awesome and sooo exciting!

The First Doctor's Appt


I know I am a little delayed, but it's been crazy around here...still unpacking from the move and getting situated!

I went, peed in a cup, they took some blood, confirmed we were having a baby, and I asked the nurse...very non-chalantly (sp) if we were gonna do an U/S...she said let me ask the Dr.

The Dr came in the room and said since you did such a great job getting pregnant so fast and you are nice people we will do an U/S...YAY!!

It was transvaginal (not as bad as I thought). We saw the heartbeat and everything. If you look at the pic below, the left side of it the doctor pointed at it and was see that there, that will eventually be a big're having a boy! I can't tell that yet! The Dr. said, I know, I'm just kidding! Gil was disappointed LOL, he really got excited then!

All in all wasn't bad and we have another appointment tomorrow. Then we will be going every 4 weeks!

Let's get started with a recap...

So, It's July 8th and AF is due the next day...I am SOOO impatient so I had to test. Hoping for a +, I got one!!!! I showed Gil and he was like what does that mean (it was one with the 2 lines)... I pretended like I didn't know so he was looking around for the box to read the instructions. He found it and was like...UUUUHH, does this mean what I think it means, and I, of course, couldn't stop smiling. So he says, We're gonna have a baby...YES!!!

At that point, I wanted to take another test, but there was only 1 left in the box, and I had just used it! Well, we had to go and "sleep" on it...boy was that a rough night! Got up the next morning and went to the store to get some more. Came home...Still +!

I haven't had any symptoms, except for some acne and a little fatigue! In a way I wish I could report more, but in a way I don't! I was getting a little worried about not having any signs, so on August 4th, I took another test just to make sure! And OMG was that one definitely positive! I don't think my pee even reached the circle before the line showed up! That's the bluest line I've ever seen!!

The first Dr's Appointment is set for Friday. I shall have more to report then! I am hoping for confirmation and an ultrasound since I will be about 8 weeks along!
