So I really wanted to put up my intro tonight, but instead I've been dealing with a sick DD. Every time she swallows, she starts to wake up and cry...poor thing has a sore throat. I feel really bad because she kept mentioning it to me during the day, but so sporatically, that I though she was doing it to get attention. (I didn't believe her...I feel like such a bad parent, even though I know that isn't true.) Anyways, I moved her into our bed about an hour ago, and she seems to be sleeping a lot better. I hope that's the comfort of being next to mommy.
Tomorrow (Thursday) is 37 weeks, and I have a midwife appointment...will update when I get home. So much is going on, we are not ready for the newest addition to the family yet! We just had new flooring put into 2 bedrooms (ours and DD's big girl bedroom). The baseboards will be delivered tomorrow and we have to paint them before they are installed, and this weekend (fingers crossed) we will pick up DD's new twin bed from the store. (We painted her room last week too...)
Oh, as of last week I transfered from an OB to a midwife & birthing center....more on that later!
DH and I met at the end of our freshman year of college…which I guess makes us college sweethearts. We were set up on a blind date and I knew that night either it would be a very fast romance or I would marry the guy. I ended up marrying the guy! Anyways, after finishing college…I left sunny Florida for Duke for 2 years working on my graduate degree in environmental management while hubby entered law school. We went from being inseparable for 3 years to 3 years of long distance dating. Somehow we made it through, and we got married 6 and ½ year after we first started dating and have been married now for 5 years.
After getting married, we moved back to our hometown where all (and I mean ALL) our immediate family lives…this includes 7 parents & step-parents plus our brothers. (you can only imagine what this means…lots of good, the occasional bad, and sometimes it’s downright ugly.) Fast forward a couple years after getting married, we decided to start trying for a family. The first month we were going to ttc, I got cold feet. I’m not kidding you, I absolutely refused to let my husband near me. A week or so later, I got over it, but figured we missed any chance of conceiving that month. What I didn’t know was that I ovulated a week late, and who’d have thunk it…but we got pregnant! I guess the man upstairs knows what he is doing sometimes. My pregnancy with DD was pretty uneventful (basic morning sickness), but l&d more than made up for it. I’ll get around to writing her birth story for all of you sometime in the near future.
With our DD, we waited to find out her gender and to my happy surprise, my DH wanted to wait to find out the gender with #2.
Unlike getting preggo immediately with DD, this time around took a little longer. We started ttc around Feb. 2008, but didn’t get lucky until June (with funky cycle lengths...no 2 cycles were the same…). I doubt breastfeeding had anything do with it, but I got pregnant the first month I weaned DD to 1 feeding a day. We stopped bf last Aug. (we went on our anniversary trip, and when we got back, I just never offered my breast again…), but my DD is still totally into my “boobies.” I suspect she will try to bf again after the little one gets here. That should be an adventure.
So, that’s my story…for now. Thanks for indulging me.
Oh, as far as the midwife apt last Thursday…everything looks great. Hemoglobin was a 12 (not sure what the range is, just that they said 12 was really good) and I’m GBS -. I also had my lowest blood pressure 100/60…so I’m ecstatic about it. I didn’t have an internal last week, but at 36 weeks baby was at 0 station. I’m hoping that means labor comes sooner rather than later…but not too soon.
