It's been a pretty good week. Valentine's Day was wonderful!! Patrick got me this beautiful necklace!! I love it so much! Today is his birthday. I can't believe he's 28! Poor guy, he's almost over the hill! Tonight we're going with his family and friends to the Irish Club to watch John Whelan play. It's going to be so much fun, I can't wait! Well I better get going, sorry for the short post, but I need to take a nap before we go out for the evening.

My poor body...

As my body keeps changing more and more, I'm noticing odd things...

-As I mentioned before, I HAVE NO BELLY BUTTON!
-Hot Flashes! I never used to get hot, always cold!
-Swollen feets and even toes!
-More freakles poping up all over the place!
-Cravings for food I usually wouldn't eat... chicken wings, apples, celery, oreos (which I liked before, but now I go crazy for em), milk, ceral (apple jacks is awesome), tootsie rolls
-My emotions go crazy, like yesterday I got pissed off and usually I just let stuff blow over my head, but damn, I let something really get to me and I starting bawling (thanks Carrie for being there)
-Stiff joints all over the place! My poor hands!
-Some little dude's feet & butt pressing against my ribs on my left side and actully brusing them (ouchie)!!

Anyways, I went to the doctor on Wednesday and had an ultrasound done. They were concerned on how small Joey is. So they sent me out to Yale for a more "high tech" ultrasound to check his umbillical cord and placenta, I guess sometimes if there's a problem with either it can cause the baby to be small. Well, nothing is wrong with Joey besides the down syndrome, which the majority of DS babies are small to begin with. In addition, Patrick and I are both smaller people, so the two of those combined is making me have a small baby. Most babies by this time (33 weeks) are usually around 4 pounds so they were just concerned which about gave me a heart attack, but luckly everything is fine and like usual I'm just counting down the days until Joey is here! The good thing is, the doctor said my weight/ body is the picture perfect pregnancy, so that helped to make me feel better :)

On the same note with pregnancy, here's a cool article... you go girl!!!

Not much to update on. We had Pat's family over last night for the Super Bowl. I'm still working on Joey's nursery! I finally got a changing table/ dresser, and I put it together by myself!!!!! I was so proud. It even got my brother-in-laws approval! Speaking of which, he fixed our toliet!!! I was so happy (thank you Christopher!!!- Steph, he's the best!)!! For those of you who have been to our house... our toliet is a piece of crap (no pun intended) and our land lord said he fixed it BUT, to flush it, you had to hold the handle down until it was completly flushed then pull back up the handle... PAIN IN THE ASS, so Christopher fixed it. You have no clue how happy I am to have a toliet that works right!!! Ok, well I better get moving.
