Just five weeks left!!!! So I think I'm probably one of the few pregnant women who doesn't feel like you normally would at this stage in pregnancy whom at this point are usually sick of being pregnant and feel like they have been pregnant for what I'm guessing feels like forever. Since I didn't find out until the end of October and 5 months into it I'm still feeling pretty good. Excited to meet our baby of course but not like I'm gonna die or anything, hahaha. I can say I am pretty thankful for that. The only complaints I have are my back aches but with the help from this awesome pregnancy pillow a friend lent me and some pain cream I just started using they haven't been as bad. I just recently had my first case of swollen feet which went down by the next morning but keeps happening in the evening. Oh and the restless legs! I feel like I want to run a marathon at midnight and it's super annoying cause I just want to relax. Today I went back to

Poe's Nursery...

Hello! Here is a peek inside of Poesy's little corner of our home. We only have two bedrooms in the house so her and I have to share since I work from home and still need a space for my work station. I think we have made her area work well for the amount of room we have. I love it, it's so bright yet cozy. So her "theme" is mostly based on vintage 80's characters that were my favorite as a kid. Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake, and Care Bears! With a cupcake thrown in here and there. Most of the decor I already had from when I was a little girl, have collected over the years, or made it! OK let's get started with the mini tour... Here is here crib that her Grandma & Grampa Cruz and Great Granny and Pops Gallegos bought for her. I made the crib bedding which is the Rainbow Brite blanket and cordinating pillows. I also made her mobile which is mostly just for pretty but I think later on I will add some multi-colored stars to it. On this

Showered with Love!...

Hello! So if you have been following the blog you know we had a baby shower a little over a week ago. Well let me began to tell you that it was AMAZING!!! Almost all my favorite people were there to celebrate with me and our families, that was the BEST part. Then of course there was the good food and treats, and GIFTS GALORE!!! I really still can not believe how much stuff this little girl got. She is loved that is for sure! This post is going to be mostly pictures to tell this story -- so I hope you enjoy :) Tha Aftermath! Trying to find a place for everything was quite the task! A million THANK YOU's to everyone who helped, everyone who came, and everyone who was there in spirit but could not make it. Jeremiah and myself are beyond grateful for the wonderful start you have already givin our little girl. We are truly blessed! xoxo, Renae & Poesy

We are ALMOST ready!...

So the little sweetie is the size of a squash this last week! She weighs 4 lbs 11 oz according to our ultrasound we had on Thursday. We had another ultrasound because of my diabetes so they need to monitor her size since the diabetes can sometimes cause big babies and the dr. doesn't want her getting too big too fast and neither do I. They checked her breathing, her motor skills (moving her hand), her weight, and a few other measurements. The best score for these little tests is an 8 and she was right on target 8 out of 8! I'm so grateful for that and know that all my praying and prayers in the reason why. My sister came with me because Jeremiah was working, I'm glad she got to be there with me. Our baby shower was today and I can't tell you how excited and grateful for our families do this for us. I have thrown and hosted many showers and never thought I would get to have one for my own baby. It's a miracle! Her nursery is just about complete! I just

Baby Mine...

Here is one of the songs we chose to have on the dvd of the ultrasound...I love it! My sweet baby turned 31 weeks as of Sunday January 6th! This week has been super busy for me and my family so I have not been able to get my photo of the week or a blog post in until now. But anyhow, Poesy Quinn is now the size of a pineapple and seems to like laying on my bladder! I'm ALWAYS going to the restroom these days (too much info? lol) Her movements are much stronger now and I can literally sit and watch her move in my tummy. It's really neat and I'm loving all the changes that this pregnancy has brought me thus far. Yesterday Jeremiah and I went to Colorado Springs and had a 3-D/4-D ultrasound done. It was the sweetest thing ever to see what our little girl is going to look like! It was actually Jeremiah's idea and he scheduled the appointment as a surprise for me. It make me happy that he is so involved and just as excited as I am to become a parent. The place w

Happy New Year Baby!...

Moving right along this pregnancy is! I am now 30 weeks and Baby Girl is the size of a cucumber and should be weighing around 3 lbs. Her grip is now strong enough to grasp a finger. She can now open and close her eyes and when they are open she can see some light shine through the womb. My dreams are starting to get weirder by the night and my back is hurting more than usual mostly at bedtime. We had our doctor appointment and the baby's heartbeat sounds good and I'm measuring a little bit big this week but nothing to worry about. I go in two weeks for another ultrasound. Jeremiah and I also went to the hospital for pre-registration this week and everything just got extremely real and I am even more excited. Our baby shower is in just a few short weeks and I have just a few more things I want to do in the nursery then it's time for nesting and relaxing for me!
