part 2....

Ok, so all summer long Ive been on public transportation which was soo hard in the beginning of my pregnancy, but its gotten better. I just got my car back up and running on wednesday from the mechanic and drove to work on thursday. On my way home, Im jamming, listening to New Kids on the Block (yeah this album is fire lol) and while cruising down the parkway, the effin car cuts off in the fast lane. Im tryin to keep cool and not panic so i throw the hazzard lights on and im stopped. I get out the car and walk a few feet away from the car and sit on the divider and call 911 for police assistance. Then good samaritan number 1 pulls over and gives me some flares so no one will come plowing into me. i thank him and hes like are u okay and i nod yeah as I was on the phone with the police. Then good samaritan number 2 pulls over and is like we gotta get u off the parkway, soon as he says that NYC cabs comes and rolls over 2 of my flares and in pure NY fashion we both yell "ASSHOLE" lol. anyway, this man literally stops traffic, backs his car up, stops traffic again and then pushes me off the highway. Once again, tryin to stay calm cuz its cold, im tired and yep gotta pee. So im in a more safer location as i call AAA. That was another 30min wait. So good samaritan #2 leaves his number (hes a livery cab driver) and says if i need anything his base is down the block. I thank him, go sit and play the waiting game. Im texting my sweetie since hes at work giving him updates and on the phone with my mom. around 2 AAA dude comes and i swear i must have been real tired but he looked just like Saddam, mustache and all lol. He turned the heat on and let me warm up while he put the car on the tow truck. Then he starts flyin down the parkway, and yeah i was nervous as hell lol. Hes like u have to use the bathroom right? I get u home to use bathroom lol im like dude its ok i can hold it lol. I get home, he takes the car down, mom pulls up to make sure everything is ok and then i fly in the house to go potty lol.

Im here now waiting on the mechanic to bring my part n fix the darn car smh. And i can honestly say, I didnt punk out and cry this week after all ive been through, but somehow ive been crying watching these baby stories on TLC lol..

What a week...

So, Monday I left work early cuz I was having some pains in my lower right side area. I went to the nurse at my job who encouraged me to go to the ER just to get things checked out. So I left work, met my mom at the train station and went to the hospital. We arrived there around 11:15pm and we were surprised at all of the new additions to the hospital. Then within about 15mins they called me and i went to the back. I changed into my gown and played the waiting game lol. Now I mind you, i had prob 3 doctors come in and ask me the same thing OVER AND OVER AND OVER again. I understand that the FNGs (freakin new guys) have to learn but i was just gettin aggravated of sounding like a broken record player. So they all take turns pokin me and prodding me like i was cattle. (aggravation increases). So they do the first ultrasound and i get to see my lil ones long arms and legs moving around on the screen. Saw the heartbeat and it was just a wonderful feeling. Soon as the tech was done, my mom comes in and just misses it, but im told I'll be getting another one done later. Fast forward to ultrasound two and mommy gets to witness it this time, all she says is "look at those arms n legs" lol. The tech said this ultrasound was inconclusive in regards to my pain so me and my mom is like sooooooooooo whats next? Then head of surgery comes in and is like we wanna make sure its NOT your appendix so they poke n prod some more. Then OBGYN comes down and says its most likely round ligament pain. I had one persistent doctor who felt strongly that I should stay and get a MRI done (safer than a CT scan) to make sure it isnt my appendix. So around 4am im told im going to be admitted. For a hot second, i was scared but knew it was for the best interests of me and the baby. 5:15am I get situated in my room and for some reason I knew that i wouldnt have this MRI anytime soon and I was right lol. 2pm was the time scheduled for my MRI and guess what? I havent eaten since around 7pm the night before when i left work, and COULDNT eat til I got the results of the MRI. Those results came like almost 6pm, and by this time im starving, ready to eat my arm and have the worst headache in the world lol. When I saw that tray of hospital food, I inhaled it, YES inhaled it lol, the salmon, mashed potatoes and corn tasted like it came from a 5 star restaurant lol.

In the end, everything turned out well, me and lil one are fine and as of today im 16 weeks 1 day. Ive been feeling more and more movements lately and it just feels sooooo amazing. Ima appreciate these lil taps n flutters now cuz i know the kicks are gonna be no joke lol

heres a sneak peek lol last week 15 weeks and 2 days
