Hubby's booked!

YAY, it's official. Hubby has finally booked his flight and arrives on the 23rd of March, about a week before I should have my baby. My actual due date is the 9th of April, but due to some complications my Dr would like to deliver baby before the end of the month. I'm so excited.

As I mentioned in a previous post, we have decided to list our house in Canada. We put it on the market a week ago today. So far showings have been great. I have one today, and one already booked for tomorrow. Of course the clean freak in me is busy vacuuming daily, mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms. It's insane.... Have you tried vacuuming stairs 8 months pregnant? Not that easy with my heavy Dyson. Just want to sell this house quick. Wish us luck.

What else? We are busy looking for a car for me in Mexico. We will be buying brand new most likely as we want a 7 passenger.... I even said I'd drive a mini-van if I had to. I've never, ever wanted to drive one. I grew up in a family of 5 kids and we had one and remember it was rather practical. My thoughts are we have two dogs, a baby with a car seat, and will have family visiting. We need the extra space for added comfort, not our daily lives. Interest rates in Mexico are insane. I think it should be illegal. Haha. Por ejemplo, Toyota is 17.9% interest on a new vehicle. Ford was 13.5%. Can't remember all of them, but no one was .9 or 1.2% like my trusty Canadian dealerships. Can you say RIP OFF.

Well, that is sort of what I've been up to. Cleaning the house, taking care of my dog Kiara, Dr's appointments, ultrasounds, buying baby stuff, etc....

Next I"ll be sure to post some of the things we've bought in Cancun as well. So exciting!!!

Have a great weekend y'all!!!

Weekly Song is back!! This is a GREAT one :)

Lluvia (Rain) - thought it was fitting as Cancun has had quite a bit of rain lately. May not be about rain per say, but this is by FAR one of my most favourite songs. I really hope you like it....!!!

A little motivation

Again it's been forever since my last post. I just haven't felt motivated as to be honest I am allllll about baby right now. I highly doubt people want to read about all things baby on a living in Cancun blog!!!

Thought I'd post a quick update for you all. If you recall I was debating having the baby in Cancun, or Canada. Decision was made pretty easy for me when I was put on bed rest by my Dr in Canada. That meant no flying for this future mamacita!!

Well I am currently 8 months pregnant and set to deliver baby in about 4 weeks time. Oh how I hope baby doesn't decide to come earlier. Hubby is still working in Cancun and will fly up here at the last minute. Seriously hoping baby will hold on until then.... I am having my doubts, I have dropped big time.

In preparation for baby, Hubby and I recently made the decision to put our Canadian house up for sale. That means a LOT of work for me on my own. I have been busy getting the house "listing" ready. Officially should be put on the market today. Kinda hoping for a quick sale.... Once I pop this baby out it will be Cancun full time again for this familia.

I have gained about 25 pounds so far, and boy oh boy can I tell. I'm getting more and more uncomfortable, still overjoyed with happiness. All worth it for sure.... I seriously find it so funny how little I knew about pregnancy before. I have to say I either ignored, or people really don't tell you all the things that come with it. To all you first time moms out there - write me, I'll fill you in!! LOL!!

Okay, well I'll leave things at that....Share a little photo of myself, and my baby :)

I am much bigger than this now, just need a pic!! This was me 1 1/2 weeks ago.
