99 days! Plus an award!

Look at my little floating baby! 99 days left! Wow!


Wow that's like 3 months. 3 months and I'll have a KID.

Thanks to everyone for their cloth diapering advice. I have gotten tons of comments and Tweets. It has been GREAT! It's still a little mind boggling, but I think I have narrowed it down to a cover with an insert. All-In-2 I think?

Currently I am listening to Britney Spears' new single "3" over and over. If you are new, I am a die hard Britney fan. I love her. Always have, always will! I went to her concert in March and it was AMAZING! Her new song is... um... about a threesome... But whatever. I love her and it's so dang catchy. I hope Bumble B appreciates it now, in the womb, cause I probably won't let him listen to this one when he comes out.

Listening, that brings me to my next concern. My current FREAK OUT is this kid's hearing. He never jumps at loud noises. I have had two+ hands worth of ultrasounds and had a doppler, and oh yeah, went shooting a few weeks not even THINKING about his poor little ears. So now I am absolutely paranoid that he can't hear. Anyone else not have an easy startler in the womb????

I'm also looking for a job. I have THREE SHIFTS next month. We have NO MONEY and can't pay our house payment/rent for September. And yeah, October is tomorrow. So IDK what we're going to do. So I'm making a resume, and it's HARD!!! My husband is seeing if there are any admin jobs at his work for me. No one is going to hire a 7 month pregnant girl, so I don't know what I'm thinking. But I'm applying to a Vet Receptionist position, bank position, and hopefully something at his work. Worth a try. Can't say I didn't try when we're living on the street, right? For the record we got in this awful hole we are in right now because we overpaid a dang bill and now I think every single check of ours covers negative fees. We can't get out of the hole. I am going to go to a SouthernSavers.com workshop next month. Hopefully that'll help our wallets. I cut up the hubster's debit card and gave him an allowance hehe. I'm just going to stay home as much as possible. We live pretty far away from everything, so gas is a B. My work is 27 miles away... It's just really obnoxious because I get paid $25 dollars an hour, but there are no positions anywhere in my field. So ridiculous. Money is hard, and it's gotten ridiculously unmanageable these last 2-3 months, and I'm about to have a baby to feed and clothe... Thankfully I have tons of clothes, boobies, a pump, and hopefully some cloth diapers that I can wash with my well water and not have to worry about a water bill. We don't have car payments or cable or internet, so there isn't anything to cut out. Christopher may be getting a major pay raise (where they are changing his job title) and it can triple his salary. That would OBVIOUSLY be ideal! Then I wouldn't have to worry about working period ;) But I don't want to put my hopes into that. It's like hoping for the lottery. Too good to be true... What I would love it to get my computer fixed and get my Photoshop back and do website design (i used to have one, I miss it sometimes...), make blog templates, make custom graphics, siggies, for a little money. Then I could manage an Etsy shop for my mom (who is AMAZING and can make all that stuff people sell for $30 on Etsy) and try to take my blog to a new and different level. Just work at home!

I saw this yesterday on spearmint baby. I'm definitely getting a lime green A for my little Bumble B's nursery! It'll go PERFECTLY! It's only $12 on Etsy!


Here is a silly picture of my little one. He has his mommy's badonkadonk I think! (PLEASE excuse the panties! Sorry!)

I love that photo...it reminds me of when my tummy used to go into weird shapes.

As for hearing, the twins never reacted to loud noises in the womb...ever. I was terrified they'd both be deaf, but both passed their hearing tests w/ flying colors after birth. (And now that they're 6 months, I think they already know their names). So I don't think you really need to stress about it. :-)

yay for double digits! I haven't heard Brit's new song yet, but I hear it's really good. I love her, too.... not ashamed to admit it. I got so sad for her when her life started to fall apart- I think I actually cried for her a few times.

Hey my little guy likes to do contortionist moves in my tummy too. He favors the upper right side though. We're in a similar positio regarding our house payments due to my hubby's decrease in pay. I've been looking into home loan modifications. Check this site out: http://loanmodificationfoundation.com/2009/08/hamp-guide-to-offer-relief-to-homeowners/

Thanks for the award! I can't believe you are only three months away now! It's going by so fast.
