Well..nothing new has happened since the last time I wrote in my journal. I just felt like writing a little something because I felt like I was neglecting my journal. I have finals this week, but I don't have any official tests, I just have to show up to class and pick up my grades.
I guess one exiciting event will happen this week. We'll be moving back to Ripon, and in two weeks I have an appointment where I hope to find out what the sex of the baby is. Everything has been going well, I've started to feel the baby move more, but I'm still looking as normal as can be. I am not showing or just can't tell. I'm still wearing my regular clothing and I haven't felt uncomfortable. I am dreaming like every single night. One dream that I thought was so weird, was one about Regis but he was being mean, and Laura my sister went into labor and didn't tell anyone, and she arrived looking normal and mentioned her water broke and they did an emergency c section.
I'm looking forward to Christmas although it doesn't seem like it's on Sat. The weather here doesn't feel like winter at all maybe that's why I feel like it's not Christmas time.
Well that's all for now, Merry Christmas if I don't come back to my journal before then.

Dr Appt Update
My appointment yesterday went very well, well almost...The Dr wasn't able to determine the sex of the baby But that's ok since everything else is perfect. I forgot to ask the doctor a lot of questions, once I saw the baby on the monitor everything in my head went blank, I forgot to ask about the hematoma. Dr Palitz did mention I have a cyst on my ovary but it should go away. The baby is growing at a normal rate and is the size of what it's expected to be. I also got my results from my last blood test and everything came back normal, which means so did my blood sugar which was an issue before I got pregnant and I was on medication, I also found out my blood type which is suspected to be what it was. Dr Palitz also informed me I did not have any STD's what a surprise jk jk. Of course I wouldn't but he likes to make jokes. I also lost another 5lbs which is ok I guess, I really didn't think I was going to go into this appointment with weight lost. I t hought if anything I had gained weight because my pants are not fitting on my waist anymore, and I've been eating more and more frequently. So I'm assuming (again) this weight loss has to do with my aerobics class, we did change our routine and the instructor is kicking my butt, I try to take it easy, but even if I do take it easy I break a sweat. Exercising is going to be beneficial to both the baby and me in the long run.
My only disappointment about this appointment was that I wasn't able to find out the sex of the baby. I was kind of bummbed because I was really looking forward to this appointment hoping I could find out. I guess I'll have to wait until my next appointment which is next year Jan 6th, and this time we won't run late because we'll be back in Ripon living with my parents for the time being.
That's all the news for now.

Excited for tomorrow's appointment
I have an appointment tomorrow at 2:30pm. I hope to find out what the sex is so I can finish registering. My mom asked me what I needed to get for Christmas I told her clothes, and then took it back I told more not to buy me anything because I dont need anything, just to buy the baby stuff. This is the reason I want to find out the sex so I can finish registering. I've only registered for the basic unisex stuff like play pen, high chair and such, but I want to register for bedding, onesies and blankets. Bedding is the number one item on my list because I have my crib already I just don't want to set anything up until I have more stuff.
Earlier this week I kept feeling the baby move, which is great. Jun started getting jealous because every time I had him feel the baby he couldn't feel it. Well I dont think it's that noticeable to other people, but I feel like commotion going on in my belly that makes me feel like it's the baby moving. I also felt another sudden jitter on my side when I was laying down. My sister Rosa told me that's the baby so now I have been paying attention more to see if I can feel the baby move. Also the other night I was laying propped up in bed and I felt my stomache hard on one side and I layed still while Jun was in the shower hoping he would make it out in time to feel the hard stop. He took forever! in the shower and I had to use the bathroom but he made it in time to feel the hard stop on my belly and he was excited because Finally he felt the baby, well I'm assuming it's the baby because the other side of my belly wasn't hard like that.
Well that's about all thats been going on in my life besides school which of course I'm doing well in all subjects. I'll have more news after tomorrow.

Call me Mrs. Brightside
This pregnancy has been quite an experience for me. I never knew it would be true, but I have felt my mood swings. Seriously one minute I'm totally fine and content, the next minute I'm down, and if someone bugs me I get irritated. I don't like to be bothered sometimes, so I'll give a warning that I'm not in a good mood, then it's up to the person not to continue annoying me. I know it sounds mean but I can't help but feel that way sometimes. I do feel guilty though for feeling the way I feel, I'm not heartless.
I've also cried for the smallest things, and the most annoying, and mostly I'm crying because I'm so bothered by whatever is bothering me and it just makes me unhappy. But not to worry there is a bright side, leave me alone for a minute or two and I'll come back out of my shell and feel good and happy all over again.
