I AM STILL PREGNANT!!!! Laaaawd ah mercy.

I walk as if my vagina is filled with rocks, no joke, it is HEAVY. I think i can come up with a remix to Fayann's heavy T Bumpa. For the past week i've been power walking with Kwame's mom, dancing up a storm to Merengue, cha-cha, Samba and Mambo. It is this Latin cardio dance video, it is gooood. You should see the belly moving from side to side. I must say though, at this point, it is so easy to fall into a depression and be miserable because my body just cannot take it anymore. My belly is so sore and with each movement the baby makes it hurt.

Well, i get the strongest feeling we will be parents by the end of the weekend. Things happen during full moon. I AM READY to turn a new page.

AH FED UP BEING PREGNANT!!!!*Bangs head*. I still have a gut people and it is the size of a watermelon, not a little one you know, a BIG one. Sigh. I must say i loved being pregnant up until 2 weeks ago. The days are going so slow and i am feeling more pain. I was telling Amanda and Faj that my vangina feels as if it is holding a ton of bricks and each time i get up from sitting down or when i walk i just feel like i have to hold it cause it is so heavy or it feels as if it is falling out. I can't find a better way to explain it just feels heavy man.

Emotionally? i am a mess, just about everything makes me cry and i am absolutely bored out of my mind. Last Sunday, we went on the street, forgetting it was Easter Sunday. All the stores were closed, that means i had to go back inside the house. Can you believe when Kwame pulled up to the garage i started crying, shameful right? i know, what can i say "call me the Canadian psycho". I felt so cooped up in the house i really didn't want to go back in there. I wanted to get out so badly i offered to treat him to red lobster, since they were just about the only place that was open.

All in all this whole thing is getting on my nerves. I still pee as if i am supplying a reservoir, my belly is still stretching and it frigging itches. Doesn't matter how much i moisturize it. Sleeping is getting ridiculous. Sleeping on my sides for too long is becoming a problem and i cannot sleep on my back for too long because of that major artery so i think i need to sleep sitting up. Sometimes this child decides to sleep on the surface and it doesn't matter how much i provoke her, she will never MOVE, IT HURTS BAAAAD. It's hard and uncomfortable. PLEASE GOD, PLEASE LET THIS BE OVER SOON. OK, enough of my complaining.

I must tell you that i am well prepared for my big day. Not only is my little pulley packed, but i also shaved my legs and got a pedicure. I cleaned up my yard; weed out all the dandelions, mowed the lawn and cleaned up the side walk real good and of course i didn't do it all by myself, i enlisted the help of a very kind gentleman. I'm ready for the Lights, Camera, ACTION....uhmmm, not quiet sure about the action part lol.

My doctor is impressed with how my cervix is progressing and he hopes he'll see me before my next appointment, which is on Tuesday. Now i sit and wait ANXIOUSLY.

WHOOOP, WHOOOP. It is almost time and i must say i am HEXCITED!!!

Everything is ready. My bag is packed and sitting in a corner. The room is is all painted and the furniture has been assembled, clothes packed away. I am only waiting for the bedding to show up in the mail. Oh, i can also sleep better at nights because the search for a stroller and car seat is over and i only paid $188 for it. Thank God for sales and gift cards hehehe.

My weekly appointments are going well, the baby is still in the correct position and the cervix is thinning like it should. MAAAAN, can i tell ya'll how much it hurts? IT HURTS. I am definately getting more miserable as the days go by and i am riding on an emotional roller coaster. It is not a pretty ride at all lol. Sometimes i feel like a sociopath.

P.S: I took some hot gyal pics, you guys can have a glimpse next week when i get them.

All in all i am good and blessed and happy and, and, and i cannot wait to see my lil Blessing lol.

It's Just JAH WORKS!!!

Last week i was on and realized that the crib and dresser/change table was on sale but online ONLY. We were excited and wanted to order right away, but you that couldn't go down without a glitch right?. The cribs and dressers were all sold out. I wasn't pleased at all. On Monday we went to the Toys r us ( the people know us well lol)and we saw another crib that was just as strong but cost less. I told Kwame i didn't care anymore lol i just wanted to have the room set up and ready for when the baby comes. We took the stickers from the crib and the change table but when we got to the Counter, Kwame realized he didn't have his cards with him, he took them out when he went away for the weekend. We considered the incident as an inconvenience cause we were tired of going to the peoples store, not realizing that it was a sign, a beautiful one too.

Today, we agreed that we would quit procrastinating and just go back and buy he crib today. We walked into the store and Kwame headed towards the crib that we've been drooling over. He noticed that the dresser/change table was sold out and the one we were looking at was the LAST one. So being Kwame he went to the counter and asked the woman about it and checked her computer and confirmed the one on the floor was the last one and that we would get $100 off should we buy it. HOWEVER, it would be delivered AS IS. LOl i wobbled my penguin self back to the change table to look for scratches and stuff, and it was Scartch free. We agreed to get it. We also told her we would take the crib...Again Kwame being Kwame asked about a deal lol. The lady said she'd see what she can do, when she checked her computer again...she noticed it was the LAST CRIB....hahaha. Guess what? we got a $130 off the crib and the change table was actually $150 off. Even if they did have a lil scratch on them? it wouldn't even be a big deal, cause it's nothing that a lil sand paper and varnish cannot fix. So at the end of the day, we got the whole set for way less than the crib set we were going to settle for. The set will be here on Saturday afternoon, OMG, I AM SOOO EXCITED. The room will be completed by tomorrow, Kwame is just doing the touch ups.

I was also going to buy a matress..But Kwame said a coworker asked about the things we didn't get and he mentioned it and she said she would get them. Can you beleive that? See little things like these bring tears to my eyes because i didn't know people could be so nice. I've always been the giver and the doer, i've never been on the receiving end so this is all new to me. Everyday i'm grateful and i thank God for all the beautiful people that surrounds us.

Now to buy the stroller and car seat, THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL. We see something we like though but i suggested we wait till after the baby show, which is on Sunday to check out other strollers and ask the professionals some questions.

Hello Orica, you are 37 Weeks Pregnant TODAY!!!!!

Is it almost time or what?!!!!, My gaaaawd. I am so excited!!. You have no idea how high my level of excitement is. I feel like i'm waiting to see a long lost family member and as the time gets closer the more anxious i get.

It's funny how my cell phone hasn't been ringing, partly because everybody thinks it's disconnected (i love it that way, i can save money) but as we entered April, people be ringing down my cell phone wondering if i had the baby lol. People, i know you are as excited as i am but stop stress mi out lol. I have all your numbers and Kwame will have my cell phone so as she pops out, 5 minutes or maybe half an hour later he will text ALL ah unuh and mek unuh know. SCENE? ( well Mandy we gonna have to work something out since we can't text to Japan, we have to buy a phone card just for you). Oh, and if you guys notice that i am MIA on MSN, i'm not really in a talky talky mood nowdays, plus as i said before it gets annoying and frustrating when everyone keep asking if i make baby yet and most of u know how i get when i'm agitated.

Whats new?
My last Lamaze class was on Tuesday. It was alright. It was a very small class, not sure what happened to everybody. One couple had their baby. Her due date was 2 days before mine. Poor Kwame had a panic attack when the husband came down to tell us. This was the first time he actually got scared because it could be us, any day now. He had his head down, and he kept saying, oh gooosh, oh my gaawd, maaan, lol, and everyone was laughing at him. He kept going on, mommy aint here yet, i wouldn't know what to do...hahahaa, you guys should have been there it was hilarious. We didn't really do anything but watch some videos and talked about our experience and give each other tips and stuff like that. Shhhhh...doh tell anybody but Kwame and i are allowed to be in her class next week although we didn't pay for it, some taking care of baby class. I say we go cause i think then and only then will i feel as if my $90 was well spent lol.

This week i also had my appointment, which was long over due but my dr. was on vacation so i had to have it 3 weeks later. We did the Group B Streptococcus (GBS) test. Same idea as a pap smear except i got my butt swabbed too. Read all about it.

The appointment was the usual, i told him about all the new and exciting things; the pelvic and cervix pain and so on. He assured me that i am normal and if i see blood i should get myself to the emergency. He measured my belly and felt for the baby's head and sure enough she did turn. My belly also dropped a little bit, which is great because i was having a hard time breathing. He says everything is going well and my next visit is next Monday. I will see him every week untill i have the baby.

P.S. Will i give birth before my due date? April 24th or will i go over my 40 weeks? How early or late do you think i'll be?

Poll number 2: This lady thinks the baby will weigh 6lbs 7 ounces? What do you guys think?

LETS MAKE THIS FUN PEOPLE. Allyuh can bet money if yuh want lol ( in no way shape or form do 1 condone online gambling :D)
