I can't believe how long it has been so I posted last. I feel ashamed. I also feel confused because I don't know what I want this place to be anymore. I'm figuring things out. I am toying with the idea of a parenting with RA (rheumatoid arthritis) blog. But I want to put other things here too. Maybe I just need to be done here and move on to a new. I will put a link to the new one once I get it up and going.
Delia is 8 1/2 months and absolutely perfect. Blaine will be 8 next month. I am addicted to the RHO anywhere. I have lost 83 pounds since I got pregnant. Life seems pretty wonderful right now.
Thanks so much to all of you who were so much support. I am constantly reading but my google account acts all wonky all the time when I try to comment.
First of all I am excited to have made it this far. I seem to be having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions. I talked to my OB about the whole scar tissue and breastfeeding deal and she said that I need to make an appointment with the Nurse Practiotioner who is also the laction consultant there. I am hoping things will work though. I seem to only leak from 1 breast and it is the one that doesn't have the big scar tissue on it so I am sort of freaked about that. We have an appointemnt on Monday for another ultrasound to check her heart and stuff out and make sure she's still a girl, lol. Starting next week I will be at the office every week for the rest of my pregnancy. Kind of scarey to think about.
I have a new background and I am super excited about it! I need to get back to blogging and be fun again, lol. There are a few bloggy ladies that I am just so excited for so I thought I'd tell you to go over and share in the joy they have going on. Sonja just brought home Liam a few days ago, the first of her quads to come home and that is huge. They will all be home before she knows it! Rachel just got the call last week that her family was growing by 1 and her story of those first days is just amazing.
The good: Still the movement. I love it. It makes everything so real. It helps me feel better about things when I get worried and it reassures me that she is in there and growing. my belly is growing and I love it. You can tell I'm pregnant more and more all the time.
The bad: I have so much trouble getting to sleep. I just can't get comfortable. Between my belly and my flare that won't quit I just can't seem to be comfortable enough to not toss and turn all night long.
I am turning into a bad blogger. I am not good at commenting these days and as you know just generally sucking at updates. Today I read quite a bit of good news on some of the blogs I read and want to just tell everyone that I am thinking of you and really, really hoping that things work out for you ladies and your families!
The good: D moves all the time. Like, all the time. She is going to be a partier, lol.
The bad: heartburn, not being comfortable when I try to sleep.
Things have gotten boring. I feel like there is nothing really to post. I have my very first completely routine (I hope) OB appointment this Thursday. No ultrasound, no freaking out, no pelvic (fingers crossed). Just measurements, weight, heartbeat, and questions. I have a few for them. My biggest concern is breastfeeding. I had nipple piercings and they are closed up but the scar tissue isn't so great so I am a little concerned as to whether it will work out or not. Also we have a mini-vacation planned for September but I start weekly progesterone injections in a few weeks and I will be around 32 weeks for that trip and I just need to be sure that we will be OK for a trip around 5 hours away. I will also start having weekly growth ultrasounds and non-stress tests at 32 weeks so it should be very busy!
The good: D moves alllllll the time! T even feels her sometimes. You can tell that I am pregnant, that is if you know me. We have been shopping and gotten her some really cute stuff. I will have to post pictures of some of it along with her bedding set.
The bad: heartburn. This girl better have a crapload of hair is all I can say.
The ugly: My emotions. I have banned myself from many things, like country music and lots of shows because I can't stop crying sometimes.
We had our anatomy ultrasound yesterday. It was a Level 2 which pretty much meant that the MFM OB did part of it. She got all the measurements she wanted and said things are looking great!!! We also found out that we are expecting a sweet little girl!
The good: we know what we're having, Shopping and BEGIN!!! I feel good. Hungry all the time, but good. She moves around quite a bit now, it feels super wierd.
