We decided to go to Nana's house to go swimming to relieve some of the pressure of carrying a fat belly haha. Stella loves the water (even when it's pretty chilly). So we didn't expect the reaction of her crying when we slowly put her in the pool feet first. We were sitting there and trying to figure it out and then Curtis leaned her forward and she had a red patch on her back. I saw a stinger sticking out of her skin. I took it out right away and then she seemed fine after that. We swam for a while and the cool water on the sting seemed to help it. She is one tough girl! I'm proud of her. I don't know if I would have handled it as good as her haha.

Well so far this pregnancy has been pretty good. All of my lab work and stuff has been coming up stable and normal. I had to do a 24hr urine sample during my first trimester to get baseline readings of everything, so the doctors would know if anything was up later. I just had to do another one for my 3rd trimester baseline readings, which came back ok, but I did have protein show up. So at my dr's appointment today, she said that considering my preeclampsia history, she wants me to do yet another 24hr urine sample just to be safe. Yuck!!! I hate having to keep track of my pee! It's lame! I'm pretty much confined to my home for 24hrs. Hopefully everything comes back normal. But on a happy note, the doctor did say that my blood pressure and everything else was looking good. So keep your fingers crossed that everything stays well :0) 3 1/2 more weeks to go yippee! Can't wait to see this little boy.

For Mother's day, Curtis bought me 3 books, which I'm pretty excited about. And he wanted to take me out to see a movie. So we called Ben up and had him come over to watch Stella. We headed out, bought some Coldstone because I was craving it and bought our tickets to Clash of the Titans. Now I'm a fan of the old school movie, so when I saw this one I thought it was ok; but it is totally unrelated to the old one. I was a bit sad about that. It was still good though, plenty of cool graphics and action. Anyway towards the end of the movie I get a call from Ben (on Curtis's cell). I turn to Curtis and ask if I should take it and he just nods (obviously sucked up in the movie lol). So I text him and ask if anything is wrong. He calls again, I miss it. So I decide to get up and call him in the hall, since it must be something important; because he usually never calls. He answers and says: "Um Stella doesn't want to go to bed." Me: "Oh well usually Curtis and I just rock her a little bit and put in the crib and let her cry." Ben: "Well she climbed out of her crib." Me: "What!?? Oh did you put her in the toddler bed, because she would get out of that." Ben: "No the crib crib, she climbed out." Me: "Are you sure? How did she do that?" Ben: "I don't know." Me: "Ok well the movie is almost over, so we'll be headed home in a bit." I basically miss the end of the movie except for a little chunk, but Curtis has the courtesy of telling me about it on the drive home. We get there and Stella is just happy as can be playing halo with her uncle Ben on the couch. He explained how she lifted herself up and out of the crib and somehow maneuvered herself to hang on the railing and fall backward. Crazy! I still can't get over how she did it, but I'm considering putting her in gymnastics now hahah.
