    Wow Kaseye, you have been through a lot! Thanks for sharing your birthing stories, and I'm sorry this pregnancy has been so rough for you. Hopefully the last few weeks will be smooth sailing. Wonderful belly pic too!

    Thanks for all the well wishes everyone!

    I can't find the question, but I think someone asked if I had the same doc as last time- the answer is I do! I have a wonderful family practitioner that has actually delivered all my babies. (Barely made it for the last two, lol!)

    having the same problem again this time (16 lbs lost since I found out I was pregnant 4 weeks ago).
    Elizabeth, I am so sorry that you are dealing with this again I hope that you can find what works for you, to be able to enjoy your pgcy!

    I think the insertion would send me right over the edge - did they sedate you at all for that?
    No, they don't sedate. You can't see them do it, you have sterile drapes all over the place (which was kind of disappointing, I would have liked to watch!) They give you a couple of numbing shots in your arm so you don't feel much pain but lots of pulling and pressure. My arm was SO bruised after I had it done.
    I just prayed a lot and tried to detatch myself from it, so it would be more of a clinical interest type thing, than a "this is what is happening to me right now!"

    OK, now's when you post pics of your brood!

    Thanks for sharing Kasey. I don't know how I missed that you were so young when Alison was born. I'm such a dork. I just never thought to calculate back

    And I'm dying here - that pic of Noah is the best! You have to save that for when he gets married, or first date or some other important event. It is awesome.

    Hoping the rest of your pregnancy goes much smoother than the beginning did. And that your confidence comes back in full force. You can do it momma!

    lol, I know, I LOVE that pic- he is such a ham! He loves the potty...

    Okay, here is one more pic, dh and I together! I had to go back WAY too far to find one of us together This was two and a half years ago...

    What a LONG weekend this has been! I am SO happy that I only have two more weekends left to work before I start my mat leave. I REALLY hope that the baby comes quickly after I start it!

    Our HRD department has approved of my request to request paid time off donations. Thankfully, they deemed my situation a little different than most requests for mat leave time (you are not allowed to ask for pto requests for mat leave usually) I used up over half of my time when I was sick- so now I will have just under what I need to cover my first two weeks of time off- then I get 60% pay for up to 6 wks after baby is born. Origianally, pre-sickness, I was going to have enough pto to have 6 wks 100% covered, and we were going to use the stimulus pymt to cover some extra time. Now we had to use that just to get my 6 wks covered! So hopefully some kind people with too much vacation time will want to throw a few hours my way!

    I feel like I am in a bit of a haze for parts of the day since starting my zofran regularly again. I am hoping that initial zombi-ness wears off soon... It is lame that as soon as my head starts feeling nice and clear, I start getting nauseated again, and have to take another pill to get that under control, then the tired haze comes back. Oh well- Baby is healthy, still inside the womb, and I am not vomiting, so I guess I can't complain too much!

    And I am feeling somewhat more confident. Knowing that we have a plan in place for if I do get too nauseated during labor, and reading lots of good birth stories, and reminding myself that I have the ability to relax my body and not fight it when the pain comes has helped. I need to just stay positive, and eat and drink, and have faith that no matter how everythign works out, it is God's perfect will. I think when I was pregnant with Noah, and awaiting labor, I had a blinkie that said "Let go and let God." I think that needs to become a part of my mantra...

    Love the pictures! You're so pretty, Kasey and your kids are cute (ROFL at Noah on the potty!). They all look like hams!

    Good for you! This is the conclusion that I finally came to in the last few weeks of my pregnancy with Sarah Cate. I'm such a control freak and Brian pointed out to me that I couldn't control every aspect of my L&D no matter how hard I tried. Then I realized that I truly had *no* control over *any* of it, but that God did. That was my moment to "let go and let God".

    Love the pics! What a beautiful family you have! I can't believe how big they're all getting. And your belly is simply perfect.

    I'm glad they approved your PTO donation plan! I hope you get it all worked out for minimal loss of pay and maximum time off. It's a pain to have to deal with it.

    I can't imagine having to take zofran for so long. Yikes! Well, you're almost done, it must be a relief to have an end in sight.

    I can't imagine having to take zofran for so long.
    I have actually had a nice long break from it (about 10 wks) and just started taking it again- trying to head off a full relapse. I am hoping that if I catch it at the nausea point that I am at and get it under control now, and make it so I can eat and drink the way I need to, I won't get to the vomiting part. wishful thinking???
    The bad part about starting it again is dealing with the side effects. Sooo tired, and constipation. Yay, fun. But so much better than the alternative!

    Today was a good day! I met a girlfriend and her kids at the park, and we had lunch there, and played. We stayed for 3 hours! I don't think we would have lasted even 1/3 of that if it weren't for my friend, and the other moms there! Lots of moms and a few dads to help with swing pushing for my 4yo, and my gf to chase Noah if he went too far.
    My poor kids- mom forgot the sunscreen- it didn't even occur to me until we got home! But I actually got the worst of it. Thankfully it was only faces, and on the kids only a bit of red cheeks. My whole forehead is bright pink, lol!

    My poor pelvis! I don't know how baby moves when I sit, but as soon as I stand it feels like my pelvis is coming apart. ow! I tried out my mat support belt again, but that seems to impede my digestion, it doesn't really hold baby up, but pushes my belly in, since it is small and low... Then I get (tmi) horribly gassy and uncomfortable. So I pick the lesser of two evils and just move slowly!

    It sounds like you've had a very long 36 weeks! Thanks so much for sharing your story. I hope these last few weeks go by quickly and you have the birth you are hoping for.
