I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

35/35!

What does that mean? It means I am 35 weeks today, leaving me with only 35 days left until my due date. For pregnant people... this excites us very much.

So I guess it's time for a baby update.

Thursday was my regular appointment with my Dr. and I pretty much told you what he said.

Yesterday I had my appointment for my Non-stress Test, Ultrasound, and the monitoring. My Mother-in-law agreed to watch my kids for me since I knew it would be a while. My appointment was at 1:00pm. I arrived to my hospital and they checked me in. I never done this before so it was crazy to me. They had to admit me into the hospital and they put me in triage. So here I am sitting in between two ladies are are completely in labor. Their husbands look as confused as ever. And they are literally moaning and huffing and puffing in the seats next to me.

So anywho I get called back and they put me into my little room and hook me up to all the monitors. Atalie was not happy and kept kicking them off. The monitored me for about an hour. I had 2 contractions. For the first time I was finally able to feel when a contraction started and then ended so I can time them.

They gave me lots of water to drink and I even took a short nap.

Then it was time to do the ultrasound. I was transported to another part of the hospital via wheelchair. That was kinda cool getting pushed to all the different places in a wheelchair.

So the ultrasound looked good. Baby is doing perfectly fine. She is already very low and it was very hard for the tech to even get a picture of her face. She somewhat did. They are worried that since I am showing signs of possibly going into preterm labor that she won't be big enough to come home with us right away. She's small and with me losing weight it's not helping the situation. They're hoping with the changes in my diet again and a few extra weeks then she will gain some weight.

So the goal as of now is to continue to be monitored twice a week to hopefully keep her in as long as possible. It is importnant that she gains a little more weight. But other than that they don't see anything wrong with her.

Overall I was there for 3.5 hours before they discharged me. And sent me home with a paper with all the signs of preterm labor so I can be aware and go to the hospital if that happens. I am really dreading having to be there for 3.5 hours twice a week from now on. I have 3 other kids that I have to be worrying about but a lot of people have been offering to help me out... so I will be taking up the offers. There's no way I could do this all alone. And Jr really needs to continue working until the baby is born.
