4 weeks left!

So I have been kinda slacking on keeping you all updated on here but lets just say a lot has been going on and there is equally good and bad things. Im just trying to stay positive and not over stress myself. So to stay postive here is my latest ultrasound pic at 35 weeks! Just check out those pouty lips! She is going look so much like Colt I can already tell. You can even see the famous sunken in eyes that he and his brothers and sister have (from his dad's side) and his nose. Poor thing has no more room in there and her face is all squishy. " I shall call her my squishy" haha love Finding Nemo. She is estimating at 6 lbs but I am told that those estimates can be off by as much as a pound. Lol I am just not wanting a jumbo baby; no bigger than 8 lbs please ha ha. She has gone head down and as of todays visit her head is really far down and my cervix is starting to thin out. As much as I want her out soon I am now crossing my legs (litterally) hoping that Colton can be there! Some of you know the story and it will just be so unfair if he cannot be there to watch his baby girl be born!

So I am just taking things day by day and will see where lifes events take us into the new year! Speaking of, I hope everyone has a fabulous New Years!

Oh and I am getting pics done by Rachel tomorrow and I'm so excited! As soon as I get them, I will put them on here.

34 weeks

Had my 34 week Dr.'s visit today... I've been having contractions the last couple of days, nothing major just lil ones here and there but my Dr. wanted to check my cervix to see if I have dialated. Sadly nothing, cervix is closed still and baby hasn't really descended too far down to really think any action will happen soon. Oh well only 6 weeks to go hopefully its more like four haha I am just so ready to see my baby girl and take on the mommy role! Next week is the ultrasound where we will see her and check on if she has gone head down yet and how big she is. Im so excited. Sorry there isn't much to report this week.

Oh go and see the movie Four Christmases, its freakin hilarious I was laughing so hard and it hurt my tummy.

Week 33 OMG!!!

So here we are in the middle of my 33rd week of Pregnancy and all I have to say is holy crap!!! I could have my little girl like anytime really and that makes me an instant mommy! Don't take that wrong, I am so excited I could pee my pants ( no litterally she is right on my bladder using it like a punching bag). But its just like wow this is really happening. Soon all those baby clothes will have a little person to cover and keep warm. I will have a constant car companion to take around and show off all over town of the little miracle I created. It will be cries instead of kicks that keep me up all night and honestly I know she will be worth every little bit! I wanted to have some cool artsy looking photos and so I took these and then tweaked them a little bit to make a more dramatic look.

Only 8 weeks to go!

This week you can compare baby's weight to a Jicama, whatever the hell that is... Baby wieghs 4 pounds and is around 17 inches long. This week baby's finger and toe nails are growing quite long and she could scratch herself in the womb. Ahh scary who knows what else she's scratching up in there lol.

So today I had a doctors visit and everything went well. We also pre-registered at the hospital so when I go into labor I will already be all checked in and I can get into that cute little buttless gown and into my room lol. Im getting so anxious I could pee my pants, no really it happens pretty much everytime I sneeze.

Oh another fun fact of my pregnancy; I developed a Salivary gland infection on Friday and my jaw, cheek and back of my ear swelled into this huge really painful lump. That is why you are not getting a pic this week lol but I will put one up soon. Im on antibiotics and tylenol for the pain and today it has felt a lot better.

So ya that is whats been going on this week so I'll keep ya posted.

Much love from Lacey and baby Stok!

30 Weeks Preggers

This week baby weighs about 3 pounds and is around 16 inches long. You can compare her in size to a Yorkie Terrier. Of course my baby is way cuter and has less hair ha ha. This week most of her development will be on her brain as it starts to wrinkle and fold. Her fingernails and toenails are fully grown in and she is shedding her lanugo (the hair that covered her body).

All this is just getting me more excited and anticipated for things to progress and her to finally get here.

Today I had a Dr.'s Appt and things went well. My blood pressure and sugar were all good and the gave me a kick chart so I can track her movements to make sure she stays active. When I talked to Dr. Young and told him about my constant hicks(mini contractions) he told me to watch them and chart them like I would the kicks and if I have more than 5 in one hour I need to lay down and see if I have more than 5 in an hour while laying and if I do than I need to go to the hospital because I could be going into preterm labor. So maybe Stok is trying to tell me she wants to meet me sooner just like I want to meet her. As long as she is healthy and fully grown of course. As much as I want her to be here soon I want a safe and healthy baby.

Ta ta for now!

Baby Shower!

This is my invitation for my baby shower on Saturday the 15th! Me, Mom, and Aunt Traci cut out, folded and put a sticker on each and every invitation. It was fun to be creative and I love how they turned out! I especially loved that we found the custom diaper pin stickers that we put her name on. Im getting so excited for things to move along and for her to get here. Hope to see you all at my shower!

Happy Halloween and Birthday!

Happy Halloween to all! This is probably my favorite holiday but once again this year I am lame and doing nothing exciting. While my whole family goes Trick or Treating tonight I choose to stay and hand out candy with Aunt Traci and watch Halloween movies. I dont really feel like walking my preggo ass around the neighborhood this year, just too tired and walking long distances cramps up my back.

So I hope whatever you do this Halloween you enjoy it and make the most of this spooky fun holiday!

Also yesterday was my Aunt Laurie's birthday, she would have been 47 years old. Rest in Peace Aunt Laurie, we miss you! And to all those families being caused suffering by cancer I know your pain and just make the best of the times you have together. My Aunt Laurie did more in her last years than most of us do in our life time. So live your life to the fullest with no limits and no regrets!

We're 2/3's There!

So here I am in the middle of my 27th week and as much as I love being pregnant I want to hold my baby girl in my arms. Yes I did say I love being pregnant however the last little while has become pretty uncomfortable. The movements are neat and cool to feel but once they get in your ribs and do it constantly especially when you are trying to sleep its not the funnest part. Haha sleep ya that doesnt really happen. I wake up to her hiccupps and movements probably at least 6 times a night. On average I am getting maybe 5 hours if that. I guess its all part of the prepping for when she comes and I am being awakened by cries all night long lol. But it is cool now not to only feel her move but to watch my belly and have it look like shes doing the worm in there or something. And to feel her move and react to hearing certain ppls voices... She defineltly knows who her daddy is cuz she goes bonkers when he rubs my belly and talks to her.
Also a thing I am constantly feeling is Braxton freaking Hicks! They dont hurt but are really uncomfortable and tight. I am hoping since I am feeling them so much that she is coming sooner! My doctor did say that I am showing two weeks ahead so either she is coming sooner than my due sate or I am just going to have a gigantor baby.

But ya me and Colt have been doing great and he is so cute about our baby. Before introducing ppl to me he rubs my belly and says thats my baby girl in there. Of course him being a guy and just the way he is he still has his boundaries with things. Mom is going with me to my birthing classes which is just fine. Colts laid back and its not like he cant support me properly if he doesnt know all the hoopla of labor. He will be the best labor partner and I cant wait for us to be in that room together and welcome our daughter together and be a family!

Cute as an Ear of Corn!

This week baby is the size of an ear of corn. She is about 12 inches long and weighs a pound to a pound and a half. No wonder I have noticed me not being able to bend over or sit comfortably lol. She is taking up all the sweet room she can in there and stretching herself out good.

I love to sit and talk to her and feel her responses to my voice. She even starts moving when I am with Colt and she can hear him talking!

She may cause me some discomfort but I wouldn't change it for the world. I can't wait to see her when she is born but I know I will miss feeling her like crazy inside me knowing that she was all mine for those nine months and that I could protect her and keep her to myself!

6 Months Along!

In this picture I have to say that I make pregnant look SEXY lol! I am truly loving my pregnant body right now I think it is just so cute and its a way to be kinda fat and ok with it.

Naked belly here. I am constantly laying in bed with my shirt up just watching my belly. I love to watch the little twitches and movements. You can littlerally see her kick, hiccup and even roll around across your belly!
Oh and I found this device at Babiesrus that I reccomend to all pregnant women... Its a prenatal heart listener. You put the device on your tummy and through the headphones you can hear her little heartbeat and kicks and movements. Stokley gets really active when I put the device on and she kicks and punches at the microphone lol.

More baby stuff of course!!!

So far I have had four ultrasounds with zero successful dvd's! It upsets this mommy very much that I can't share her cute little movements with you all! So I will tell you a little from memory... On my 19 week visit where we found out we were having a little girl the offices dvd machine was broken so that one we could not even attempt to record. She was very active during that session. We litterally watched her kicking mommy's blatter on the screen. She also rubbed her eyes and tried to hide her face which she has done on every ultrasound since. We were able to get a pic of her with her hand on her hip tho which we found very amusing and diva-ish.

This week on Sept. 29 I went in for my 23 week checkup where we did another ultrasound with the hopes of getting it recorded. This time she was sleeping but still did a few cute things. We saw her yawn and stick out her tongue and once again hide her face with her arms. We got the dvd out of the machine and brought it home only to find that it didnt work :(

So we called the tech and she told me to come back on thurs and she would redo it and that she was very sorry. So today I went in and we did two ultrasounds! The first one once again did not work. So she tried again and we got to see her have the hiccupps and suck her thumb. She used one of her own dvds to hopefully ensure that it would work and I took it home and it didnt :(

So I dont know what to do but below I was able to get a profile picture of her to show you all.
Here you have my beautiful baby girl Stokley! She is so adorable and I love her so much already I dont know how much more I could love her when I finally hold her in my arms! So can you tell who she looks more like? I can tell you she has Colts long legs cuz we all know I am a midget. As for facial features its still a bit hard to tell but so far I think she looks a lot like colt. Her eyes are still forming and coming in but they kinda look like Colts too. Everyone knows the sunken-in eyes that his whole dads side has including all his brothers and sister. As for me I think she has my nose and hands.

Here is my tribute to halloween... Marley's first costume! I guess since I dont have my baby to dress up, Marley got to be my dummy lol. She doesnt really like it but I think she looks adorable!

And here is the magnificent diaper cake that I designed all by myself. It was a fun little craft to take my mind off things. And yes, I individually rolled up each diaper and set them in place and wrapped the ribbons and stuck in the flowers lol. Sitting with the cake is Stokleys first stuffed animal! Its green which matches all her crib stuff and me and mom have a big love for frogs so she will take on the tradition and pass it on to her future kids!

Got the furniture!!!

I just love all the browsing and shopping that comes with having a baby! And can I say that without my dear mother and all her support and help my little girl would not have a lot of things. With me still out of work she has really made sure that she helped in any way that she can to make sure her grandchild had all that she needed! I really appreciate everything my mother has done for me my whole life and now! This is an example of the crib and bed set that we got for Baby Stokley. I just love these colors and everything!

This is the changing table we got which is awesome cuz it has the top part of course to hold the baby and then the open shelf which I found these green box like things that you can find in my regisrty lol and then the cupboard part where you can keep all the diapering needs out of the way so things look pretty haha.

I'm sick of this "Bilingual" Bullshit!!!!!

Here I am trying my hardest to get a descent job to help support my family and I keep getting turned down and they hire someone who is bilingual; who can speak fucking mexican! Since obviously in the country of America where the official language should be English and anyone who doesnt speak english should learn it but NO!!!! We accustom to them! We have to learn the language and know it to have a job. It doesnt matter what job either, offices, banks, and even fast food. I was in Wendy's the other day and someone went up to the front and needed someone who spoke spanish to help them! Who cant know enough of our language to freakin order a hamburger??? Its just such bull that it has to be this way! Sorry I have to vent over this. I do have friends who are of a spanish race but they at least took the time to learn the language and dont abuse their being in this country. They have enough respect to at least do that much. So if anyone knows of any jobs out there that wont turn me down just because I cant speak another language in the country of English, please let me know!!!!

Just a Friday!

Right now is a little tough on me. I still havent found a job and im not supposed to stress my body out. Im determined to get a good job and work my butt off and make some money so I can spoil my little girl like she deserves and take care of her and give her the best life ever!!! Got some interviews going so just wish me luck and we'll see where things go.

I just got to keep my head up and not give up!

So I havent really kept up on here with belly pics. I mostly just had them on my myspace but for those who dont have myspace here is how you can see me and hear my updates.

This is one of the first pics I took of my belly as it was growing! Here I am fourteen weeks. This is about the time that my "Morning Sickness" was dying down and I noticed my tummy getting a little roundness.
Here in this pic I am seventeen weeks. "Morning Sickness" completely gone and I have started to feel what they call butterflies/movement. To me tho it felt more like Colt's favorite type of fighting called "Ong Buck" which you fight the person with your elbows and knees. Lol.
Here at nineteen weeks we have discovered that we are having a little girl who will be named Stokley Cienna Davis! The ultrasound was quite entertaining to watch as she kicked and turned and posed her cute lil self all over the screen for us to see. We also discovered that mommy aka me, is suffering from what they call "Round ligament pain" which is just my muscles stretching and because I am a smaller girl I just feel it more than say someone with more meat on their bones. Its not horrible its just a stretching sensation along my bikini line.
At twenty weeks nothing really new to report. Been having some "Braxton hicks" but pretty much everything going smoothly.
And here we are tonight at 22 weeks and four days I guess you would say. I feel her all the time but especially at night; she must be a night owl like her momma lol. My friend Amber who just had her adorable lil boy Jayden in July (who will be Stok's future boy toy lol) she told me that if you drink Orange juice in the morning than it wakes them up so they will be more active in the day and rest at night like mommy wants her to. I wonder if this routine will stick when she comes out; so that she is more active in the daytime and more tired at night. Most likely not, but hey a mom can have hope!
