I haven't posted in a while so here is an update. Miss Jasmyn is doing well. I did go in on last week though because I was having menstrual like pains as well as shooting pains on my right side. I also had been experiencing 2-3 braxton hicks every hour since around 4 months or so, so I let the doctor know about this as well. The doctor said that the braxton hicks were due to an over active uterus because of having so many kids, of course. And the other pains were nothing she would worry about. Eventually they went away (Thank God). My blood platelets are still dropping during this pregnancy (Ugh). The first time my blood was drawn it was down to 139,000. The normal is at least 150,000. But the doctors were not really worried. Then the next time they dropped down to 130,000. Now they are at 99,000. The critical stage is when they get under 50,000. So, the doctor referred me to a hematologist specialist in order to get these platelets back up. Appointment is for next week so hopefully things will turn around for me...........

We had our monthly prenatal visit on yesterday and the cutest thing happened. When the nurse tried to hear Jasmyn's heart beat she wasn't having it. Each time the nurse put the doppler on my stomach you heard a huge thump against it. So the nurse said Jasmyn is actually starting to feel now so she felt the doppler pressing down and was kicking at it each time. This moment was priceless. Eventually Jasmyn stopped kicking and the nurse was able to document her heart rate. I love this little girl so much already. On another note I gained 3 extra pounds from last week and was not happy at all about it but the doctor said that I was right on target (Do they say this to everyone just to make you feel ok about your weight gain?) 16 weeks and 1 day to go before my little princess is due. I can't wait!!!

I am finally in week 21 and I am oh so happy. My little princess is doing well and I couldn't be more thankful for her. She is still a wiggle body and either sleeps very little or knows how to flip very well while sleeping. I think I am going to try the flashlight on the belly little trick today and see if she responds too it. It should definitely be cool for the boys to see if she does. Well a new week has started for me to get my school work done so I am off................................. Oh yeah. I only have this week and next week and I am getting my Degree in Computer Information Science. Oh Yeah!!!!!!!!!

The family and I had a wonderful Christmas this year back home. I enjoyed every minute of it. But now Christmas is over and a new year is about to begin. You guys know I am so looking forward to the new year so that I can finally finish my degree and Jasmyn can finally get here already. I hope everyone else had an awesome Christmas and got everything you wanted.
