Just a quick note to say hi! Sorry I haven't been on here in awhile! How are you??? I will have to update pics tomorrow so you can see how big my kiddos are now! Jeremiah just turned 4 and Lydie is 10 months. They are so big! Hope you are well! I've been busy trying to get my pre-pregnancy body back! :)
Sorry we are driving you crazy! Cruz is doing great! He just turned 2 on August 11th and boy does he have the terrible part down! :)
Chloe will be here in 5 wks and I am so excited!!! All in all we are doing super!!!
How are you???
haha I know!! I am uploading some pics now!! :)
Thanks so much. Crazy how big he is getting isn't it. Now, didn't you have another grandchild, or am I not remembering correctly? How is little Zac doing?
Hey!! I am going to get pics up tonight! I don't go on my laptop often but I just uploaded all the pics and will post some very very soon!! I'm slacking lately! lol But Lydia is sleeping so well at night! I'm a happy momma!! :)
Haha just when I went to bed she woke up!! I knew it was too good to be true lol. She kept me up until daylight! Lil stinker! Then fell back to sleep when I had to get up with my son. Ah at least she is cute. Haha ;)
Thanks for your note. We are doing better now. Just trying to get a routine down. Right now she doesn't go to bed until midnight but sometimes sleeps for 3-4 hours and hoping she sleeps that long again tonight. So I should probably try to get some sleep while I can! This week will be a somewhat normal week and hoping to get back to the way things used to be. On a good note, I've already lost 21 pounds since giving birth 9 days ago! I'm very happy about that. still have a good ways to go to get to my ultimate goal, but this is a big motivator! :) How are you doing?
He really is just THE happiest baby ever!! We spend hours babbling nonsense to each other. Had to laugh . . . Giraffe my fave animal too!! His Dad is majorly in love with him and spendsa reasonable amount of time with him but we are very much still on thin ice. However focus is on Archie now. Thanks for your comments :-)
Back out of my latest hibernation!! 3 new pics :-)
Hope you are well!
Still hanging in there! I think she is sunnyside up now...bad little girl!! I keep getting these weird kicks in the front middle portion of my belly, which would indicate she rotated to facing up. haha And when I get contractions, I feel them in my back as well. =/ Babyshower tomorrow, rest on sunday, then back to my midwife on monday to be checked!! :) So excited now!
Still here and waiting! :) Looking forward to the babyshower on sat and then she is pretty much free to come whenever!! :)
so close now!! eeeek! I am just so excited to see what she will look like, if she will have tons of hair or not, what color it is. It's just exciting. And I can't wait to buy her clothes and go crazy! lol I'm thinking sleep is officially something of the past. haha I can't sleep more than a few hours a night now. It stinks, but it's probably my body's way of preparing for baby and lots of sleepless nights. ;) I'm hoping she will be a good nurser and sleep really good like her big brother. :)
Thank you!! I actually slept very well last night surprisingly! I didn't go to sleep until really late, but once I was out, I didn't wake up until hubby got up to go to work. It felt great!! haha
Hey! I am doing okay today. Had more contractions today and weird pains in my cervix. But I am resting and counting down these 28 days left on bedrest. My countdown is to my babyshower on June 11th then I will stay on modified bedrest until I am 37 weeks which is 4 days after the shower (if i make it that far!!!) :)
Hey! I love that you check up on me! hehe ;) I am doing okay. Dealing with acid reflux, headaches, and some sensitivity with my tooth all at once! Ahhh! Trying to find remedies for all of these things. BUT only 4 weeks left on bedrest...I am counting down the days now!
haha you got it!! :) All is well thus far! Getting more contractions, but no more spotting or cramping. Trying to hang in there!! Hubby wants me to get to 38weeks...I'm like let's get to 36 first and count from there because anything after that is a major blessing!! haha :)
It's just like one thing after the next! haha It makes me feel better knowing that last pregnancy I was 4cm for almost a month...so it's possible to hang on another month!! :) I'm just so stressed, haven't bought anything for the baby yet, not even diapers or wipes, I want to clean every corner of my house...haha. All these instincts are kicking in and I have to push them away! 36 more days of this...I can do this...I KNOW I can!! Keep those prayers coming. :)
Thanks. It's crazy to think it's been 9 months without him. :( I feel like I was just preggo with him and I still remember very vividly the day he was born. What a precious memory to hold onto forever. <3
AWw! Thanks for the birthday wishes for Jeremiah!! Your grandson is not far behind him!! :) He had so much fun at his party on saturday! He has TONS of tractors and tools now. lol This poor girl is going to be stuck playing with tractors and tools, which is fine by me, I find myself into more boyish things, so if she is anything like me, she will survive without loads of dolls and super girly things. haha ;)
I will let you know how tomorrow and thursday go, but more importantly tomorrow. Just hoping my cervix is holding up okay. I've been getting more contractions today. :( UGH really hoping they calm down. I have a feeling I will be on meds again, but anything to keep this baby in as long as possible!
Apologies I have been somewhat "missing in action" the last few months. Been some trying times and some just plain no time times!! I have put a few photos up of my little man - still no name (yes that is in dispute too!!)
Aw Thank you! Sometimes, all we can do is pray and lean on God and wait. Today was a good day. Didn't do too much, but getting anxious about wednesday's scan. Just hoping all looks okay. I was trying to avoid bedrest this time and just exercise and stay in shape, but I have to do what is good for baby. :) Staying positive!! <3
Thank you! I am really trying to take it easy. I am nervous because this is happening earlier than last time. Here I just thought pre-term labor would be a one time thing since my second son had so many issues, ya know? Now I worry there could something wrong with this baby. We will see what they say on Wed. Hoping for good news! I will keep you posted. <3
I know! I can't believe it. I'm glad time is moving along right now and then when the baby gets here I would appreciate if it would slow down. hehe
This morning my husband was rubbing my lower back and I guess woke the baby up because she was moving all over the place. I told him he woke the baby up and then he said "oops, I guess I woke him up, or uhhh, her up I guess. You have me convinced it's a girl now!" haha he knows...but is still in denial. I guess it's no secret to him but he doesn't want to hear the confirmation in April. :P
I want to keep it hush hush though to surprise the family. Half of them say girl, and the others say boy. So I keep them guessing. :)
Awww! Thank you!! I'm just so glad the vomiting seems to be done! I can deal with nausea for now, but hopefully that will go away soon too. :D yay!!
Eating is still kinda iffy, most days. I am just trying to keep as much fluids down as possible at this point. So far today all I have had is 2 waffles. Not so good with drinking! ugh Ramen Noodles are always a good choice, because there is broth and some carbs and it's actually appetizing. Living off of soup until I feel better. lol I have an appt. tomorrow, and I have a feeling I will have protein in my urine again. My midwife isn't happy about it, but knows I am having a hard time eating. Down 16 pounds, but I don't feel like I have lost THAT much. But clothes are getting tighter, which means baby must be growing through it all. :)
Yes, the Braxton hicks! I do not like them! I always feel them at night when I am laying in bed. I have never felt them this early before. The earliest was at 21 weeks. But I have felt this lil bugger 3x today! Very light taps, but I know it's the baby now! haha :) I am going to the doctor's tomorrow to make sure I don't have an ear or sinus infection. Hopefully I don't and this stupid cold will go away. I will let you know! I need some relief!! :P
haha oh my goodness, this is crazy. Was flu-like for 3 days, still vomiting and not able to eat much, and now pink eye!! LOL I told my husband, I don't know how much more I can take. I am about to go insane. =P BUT I know it won't last forever, so I must press on! I have eye drops now to help get rid of the pink eye faster, but I have to take them every 3 hours for 5-7 days...hopefully I don't forget! lol How have you been lately?
Have just posted a new journal - Monday is the day!! 3 weeks early but better out than in right now.
Thank you! :) I am getting excited now. We are starting to think of names and not agreeing just yet, haha, but soon enough, I know we will. I am just getting anxious to see what I am having. So far, this baby's heartbeat has been higher than my boys' at this stage, so we will see! I am still thinking boy, but I have some doubt now. lol The vomiting is sometimes everyday, and then sometimes every other day which is nice, but the nausea is still here full force. Not feeling many flutters, because baby stays behind the placenta at the moment. Lil bugger! :P
Stupid question, but realized I don't know your name!!! haha I've known you for so long!
