Its a boy!!!!!!!!!

Welp ppl heres are lil one!!!He definatley is a boy he would not show his face but he gave us a great shot of his winkey and his bicep!! jay was ecstatic!! he kept saying look at his bicep look at it, every time she took a new shot it was all about how buff his lil body is it was really cute! we had a feeling it was a boy and i guess mother instincts are right!! we are sooo sooo sooo excited for this lil one to come into our family! The ultra sound definatley made this a whole lot more real than ever! he's perfectly healthy he doesn't weigh a pound yet but im sure he will soon....he's a very active lil booger he"s always doing twists and turns and punches its the coolest thing ever feeling him all day long! he's very alive at night which i hope he doesn't make to routine!! We picked a name already were gonna name him russel lee merrifield and call him rusty for short its fun finally giving him a name we talk to him and its cool to put a name to this lil thing growing inside me! were going to california in a month to have a baby shower jay is gonna make him a crib with his grandpa so that will be cool and of course i wanted it to be a pirate ship but it will probably just have to be a normal crib for now we really don't have room fror a pirate ship to fit in are closet seeing as how thats the only place we have to store him hhahah but im sure we will still try to make it as piraty as possible his lil corner in the closet! My belly is finally getting bigger i have gained around ten pounds so far and boy can i feel the weight when im working! i get really tired on my really long days at work doing praying that i wont get to big...not only cause gaining weight is not fun but because i need to work till the very end of my pregnancy! i have a pretty bad sphyatic pintch on my left side and that doesn't feel to good i can only imagine how it will feel as my belly starts growing rapidly.The lil guy only weighs not even a pound yet so i have 19 weeks left and he will be around 7-8 pounds yikes !!! But i love being pregnant its such a miracle and were stoked for are lil guy!!

he was head down and would not change positions...stubborn lil guy ...hmmmmm just like someone i know;)

I love his lil footsie!!!
well thats it for now maybe soon i will get a picture of my belly i havnt taken one soon ...hopefully

Sleepless nights. ..and stuffing my face ..and california

                                                           This is what sea monkey looks like at 19 1/2 weeks like a real baby!!!!

ok ppl.....this is supposed to happen in the third trimester i thought! no sleep every night i wake up any where from 2:48- 3:00 in the morning and for any one who knows me i need atleast 10 hours so this has become a lil annoying obviously nothing i cant deal with. Its either i don't have enough pillows, or to many ,im too cold then im too hot, then im having those stretching growing pains in my side down my leg, no matter how long my work day is or how exhausted I am i still cant get a full nights rest not to mention the 6 or 7 times i get up to go peee ahhhhh!  the "sea monkey as we have been calling the he/she is definatley getting bigger!!! its exciting to finally see my belly grow as im HALF WAY THERE.... this has gone by sooo fast! i love to feel sea monkey do summer saults or try to do mma moves on me as jay likes to call it! i know later im sure it will hurt its just not quite big enough yet!  Me and jays new past time is to watch this show called' one born every minute'.. its about women who give birth its soooo entertaining jay laughs at all the women who scream and just are completely out of control!!! i keep telling him he better watch out cause i just might be one of them!! Although he try's to act like Mr. tuff guy i have caught him crying at least twice during the show!!! jays really a big softy and cant wait to become a DAD! The baby can hear us talk and feel our touches so at night to fall asleep i love holding my little belly!!.......Since i finally have a bump and im blonde and feel cute again we will post a picture of me....Im the worst picture taker ever i wish i was like my friend shira who is more like a chinese tourist...she takes pictures of everything!!!
Now that the baby is growing I want to eat EVERYTHING!!!! im just hungery all the time my new favorite craving is Hot cheetos with lime (which i have never liked) besides my craving hot cheetos and the picture of really bad food i still eat healthy too.. i don't want you thinking all i eat is junk! although a good juicy burger sounds good  hahaha!! i have been feeling great while getting regular exercise and pretty much being able to do everything i was before i was pregnant! I've been really lucky!

BOY                             OR                        GIRL ........what will it be???    11 more days and we will have the answers!

Are trip to CALIFORNIA was a success like i said i was gonna take tons of pictures....umm i lied i just forget! but we had a blast catching up with friends feeling the sunshine in san diego before the rain. Bethany's wedding was amazing and i loved seeing my boo and all my roomates from hawaii we had a sleep over and jay was a trooper! he sat in the corner while me and my girlfriends laughed and had girl talk which we all know as girls can be ridiculous!! we saw my parents and were able to hang out with them!! But the only thing was we were soooo sick it just so happened we caught the bug three days earlier we were sleep deprived seeing as how we got in at 3 0 clock thursday night got three hours of sleep and went to san diego for the wedding that next morning.Then the next night i got maybe 5 cuz of the slumber party and to say the least i lost it the next day i had like an emotional crying break down cuz i just couldn't keep up i wanted so badly to hang out with some of our closets friends but i needed to recover so we spent the rest of the time at jays aunt house where i was fed like i was a queen:)and slept and probably my favorite part was reading in the sun by the pool!! ahhhh my skin just needs the sun and moisture !! then it was the 10 hours back home the next day...hopefully we will be able to go one more time in may for a baby shower and some real relaxation with our friends and family!!
