35 weeks and hoping for at least 2 more






SO AS OF TODAY WE ARE 35+2 . IT HAS BEEN A MIXED BAG RECENTLY. THE CONTRACTIONS WERE GETTING REALLY BAD AND AT OUR NSTs LIL MISS WAS NOT BEING VERY COOPERATIVE. I GOT PRETTY SICK LAST MONDAY AND WOUND UP IN THE HOSPITAL ON TUESDAY. I WAS DEHYDRATED AND CONTRACTING SO THEY GAVE ME FLUIDS AND A LOVELY SHOT TO STOP THE CONTRACTIONS. THE SHOT HURT LIKE HELL AND DIDN'T DO MUCH FOR THE CONTRACTIONS. BACK TO THE DOCTOR THURSDAY AND STILL CONTRACTING BUT AT LEAST THE BABY WAS BEING MORE COOPERATIVE FOR THE NST. LEFT THERE WITH PERMISSION TO GO BACK TO WORK BUT NO PROMISE HOW LONG I COULD STAY AND A PRESCRIPTION FOR PROCARDIA TO STOP THE CONTRACTIONS.  NOW I AM ON THE PROCARDIA 4X A DAY FOR THE CONTRACTIONS AND THE DIABETES MEDS 1X A DAY.TOP IT ALL OFF WITH NOW THE CARPAL TUNNEL HAS MOVED TO BOTH HANDS AND I CAN BARELY BATHE MYSELF OR GET DRESSED WITHOUT WANTING TO SCREAM, EVEN WITH BOTH HANDS BRACED UP. I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THIS BABY AND SO IN LOVE WITH HER ALREADY AND I KNOW IT COULD BE SO MUCH WORSE...BUT IT IS NO PARTY. I AM UP A TOTAL OF 8lbs BUT FEEL LIKE I AM CARRYING 80. THIS HEAT IS UNBEARABLE AND THE 1hr COMMUTE HAS ALMOST DOUBLED ON SOME DAYS BECAUSE OF SUMMER TRAFFIC. SO... I AM THROWING IN THE TOWEL. MY DOCTOR IS PUTTING ME OUT ON DISABILITY AND MY LAST DAY OF WORK IS THIS FRIDAY. RIGHT NOW OUR GOAL IS TO GET THIS LIL GIRL TO AT LEAST 37 WEEKS AFTER THAT THEY WON'T STOP LABOR BUT I WILL STILL HAVE THE C-SECTION. SHE IS STILL BREECH AND SITING UP NICE AND COMFORTABLE ON MY RIGHT SIDE WITH HER LEGS STRETCHED OUT AND CURVED AROUND MY LEFT SIDE. FOR SOMEONE IN A RUSH TO GET OUT OF THERE SHE IS MAKING A LOT OF NOISE BUT MAKING NO MOVES.THIS LITTLE LEO GIRL IS GONNA GIVE HER MOMMAS AND BIG BROTHERS A RUN FOR THEIR MONEY. WE HAVEN'T SEEN HER FACE IN A FEW WEEKS AND AREN'T SCHEDULED FOR A SONO UNTIL 2 WEEKS FROM NOW. I NEED A CUTE BABY FIX ASAP. ON THE NURSERY FRONT MY WIFE AND HER DAD STARTED THIS PAST WEEKEND AND HAVE MADE HUGE HEADWAY. I AM FINALLY NOT STRESSING HER ROOM BEING READY. WHICH, BY THE WAY, IS FRIGGIN AWESOME CONSIDERING MY OLD BUDDY ANXIETY HAS STARTED CREEPING INTO MY LIFE IN NOT SO SUBTLE WAYS AND IS STARTING TO KICK MY ASS REGARDING EVERYTHING ELSE. ANYWAY I WILL LEAVE YOU WITH SOME PICS FROM OUR SHOWER ON 6/29. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND I LOVED IT SO MUCH.

How far along? 35+2

How big is baby? NO IDEA SINCE THE LAST MEASUREMENTS WE GOT WERE A WHILE AGO BUT WE ARE ESTIMATING SHE IS PROBABLY OVER 6 1/2 BY NOW ( WE GET ANOTHER SONO NEXT WEEK)

Total weight gain/loss: 8LB 4OZ

Maternity Clothes: THE SHIRTS I BOUGHT ALL SEEM TO HAVE MADE IT ALONG WITH ME AND THE PANTS ARE TOO BIG NOW - GO FIGURE.

Have you started to show yet? YOU CAN SEE ME FROM THE MOON

Sleep: I AM BACK TO UP EVERY HOUR TO PEE SO UNLESS I PASS OUT FROM EXHAUSTION I ONLY GET AN HOUR HERE OR THERE

Best moment this week: HANDING OUT MY MATERNITY LEAVE NOTICE TO WORK - TOMORROW IS MY LAST DAY

Miss Anything? SLEEP. BEING ABLE TO DO THINGS BY MYSELF. 

Movement: SHE MOVES LESS BUT WHEN SHE DOES SHE SHOWS NO MERCY

Food Cravings: NONE

Anything make you queasy or sick? NOT REALLY

Major purchases this week? PAINT SUPPLIES FOR HER ROOM

Looking forward to: SEEING HER FACE IN PERSON  AND HOLDING HER IN MY ARMS...BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING MY WIFE HOLD HER IN HERS.
