I will post more specifics, details and pics tomorrow... right now, I'm hungry and exhausted!
Just to reiterate my heading... this is what I found last saturday on my camera when I went to download pics from the night before!
I've been up since about 5am with "contractions" (I will apologize now if anything I say will be gross)- tightening of my uterus with menstrual like cramps every 20 minutes or so since a little before 5am; and now with every "contraction" I get a small "gush" of "urine" that is slightly blood tinged... I'm thinking my water may be broken.
Now before I get all excited and run to the hospital... I haven't called my midwife yet for two reasons. First I know that anything longer than 5-8 minutes apart will not get me admitted to the hospital it will just make me drive to and from the hospital. and secondly I have an appointment with the midwife in a little under 2 hours... so I'll give her a pleasant surprise if I am in labor and I will allow her the pleasure of confirming if baby Castano will make his grand appearance today!!!!
Cross your fingers for me and I will let you know shortly after 9am if it was a false alarm or if its the real deal!
Sooooo as of right now.... I'm gonna post my Wordless Wednesday just in case I can't do it later!

As you can see... the kids are enjoying the summer heat too!
So there you have it... that pretty much sums up my life over the last few weeks... thus the reason I haven't posted! I've been soaking up the sun and water and come home exhausted!
I have more to show you, I just haven't gotten my pics organized yet, but I'll post them tomorrow... promise!!!!

I have a lot of catching up to do, so I'm gonna start with the belly update.
I am 37 weeks as of tomorrow! I can't beleive I am done to 3 weeks left and my baby will here! Ths pregnancy has flown.... seriously.
So here is a pic from last friday, at 36 weeks..... with each family member that loves to hug and rub my belly every chance they get!
I love how proud Carlos looks... he is definitely excited about meeting his lil'man!
Tomorrow I will post a pic of my 37 week belly... humor me, I've only got a few more weeks of showing off my belly before I do everything I can to hide it until it shrinks back to pre-pregnancy size.
I do have to say that I have enjoyed every moment of this pregnancy, I have been blessed with no morning sickness (other than a few days in the beginning) and the baby has been growing strong and healthy so far with out complications. My biggest complaints have to be I am sooo tired/sans energy most of the time, a lot of heart burn the last month or two (which is finally subsiding!) and now my stupid ankles are fat and swollen. But all in all, it could be worse so I won't complain too much.
