Even though we are coping with a very difficult pregnancy we got the chance to celebrate my firstborn´s 2nd birthday. He is big boy now!!

My husband and I worked on a nice fondant cake... our first one. We did quite good but I will let you judge!

Yes one of the most pleasent gifts from pregnancy ;) Nausea.
I´m feeling really dizzy all day long, smells just make me want to through up... How is it be possible to be hungry and sick all the time!

I´ve been looking all over for good advice about the subject and here´s what I´ve got. Check for full article.

How can I avoid nausea?

In the morning

Take your time getting out of bed.
If you tend to feel really sick in the morning, eat a little as soon as you wake up and before getting out of bed.
Ask your partner to bring the food to you, or prepare a snack the night before and leave it beside your bed.

Throughout the day

Eat little and often, every two or three hours - even if you're not hungry.
Drink a lot of liquid, preferably 10 to 12 glasses of water, fruit juice or herbal tea each day.
Avoid food containing a lot of fat or spices.
Avoid alcohol and caffeine.
Eat dry crackers, toasted bread or rusks.
Rest several times a day. Lie down with a pillow under your head and legs.
Move slowly and avoid sudden movements.
After eating, sit down so that gravity helps to keep the food in your stomach.
Avoid smells that make you feel sick or throw up.
Don't brush your teeth immediately after eating because this can cause vomiting. 
No smoking
At night

Before going to bed, it may help to eat a snack such as a yoghurt, bread, milk, cereal or a sandwich.
If you wake up during the night, eating a small snack may stop you feeling sick in the morning.
Sleep with the windows open to get some fresh air, if possible.

WEEK 9_Good news & bad news

Went to the doctor´s yesterday and received some good news and some bad....

Bad news first the hematoma is still there and is slighlty bigger. Besides the origin of it had a technical explanation ( I will get to that later) Long story short I will probably have to be in bed rest for the duration of all the pregnancy, if I´m lucky. It is a high risk pregnancy and that means first and third trimester will be very risky.

Good news is that the baby is growing just fine his heart beat was perfect and we even saw him move. He already has his little legs and arms and tiny little face...He or she is beautiful, and luckily doesn´t even know how worried we are for him. The bonus we had during this US was we were able to see our baby in 3d cause the doctors were looking at the hematoma to see its evolution and gave us a picture of our baby in 3d, we were able to see his face and tiny little eyes. I will add the pictures later.

Even after what doctors said I´m very optimistic and have a feeling we will be able to raise this baby just fine, of course with a very intriging pregnancy but I´m sure we will bring Nacho´s brother or sister to this family.

I will do everything I can to protect our baby and with God´s help he will join our family in some months!

Bed Rest Sucks!!

It makes my mind go wild, I honestly can stop thinking at all. Thanks to you mommy blogger I can distract myself a bit.

Really if I have to be in bed for the rest of my pregnancy I don´t know what I´m going to do...

My back and neck is killing me for being in bed all day with my laptop...Thank god for WI-FI internet!!!

Besides I´m putting so much weight that whenever I get a green light to start having "some" activity I´ll have to go with a greek style (just wraping some sheets around me, cause that´s the only thing that will fit) :)

Truly the only thing I care is for my baby to be ok and growing, however I cannot stop my crazy head... My concerns arn´t really what I mentioned it´s just being able to have this baby_ THAT´S ALL.

Back pain_NO PAIN NO GAIN right?

Weight_Well I will fight that battle when the time comes.

1-Watching the TV has really changed it´s concept, I find myself (and my husband) watching my 18 months baby´s reactions watching his face makes is way more entretaining that the actual TV program.
2-Your baby´s gases make you smile!
3-The smell of sweat, yeap I love to smell his hair after a long round playing. Smells... well I love his smelly feet after a long day, I just want to eat them
4-Watching him play and talk with his teddy bear melts my heart.
5-I never thought that someone´s poop would make sooo happy but it does.
6-My baby is quite a singer that really makes my day.
7-Watching him grow every inch and every pound.
8-His kisses and hugs fills my heart with love and joy, the best gift anyone can get.
9- Deep conversations only he understands!!
10- Last but not least watching and feeling him breath deeply when he falls asleep after a long day!!!!


Thinking through everything I decided to have a more positive aproach... after all being positive will only help and apart from that I have to be greatfull for the family I have my wondefull baby and husband that are bieng so very comprehensive.
Yes my little one too has being extremely patient with mom!!

Recomended books!
