We had our OB appt yesturday and the good news is that my cervix is still closed. My OB said that we can't do much more about the contractions. I guess we will just waite and see. I just pray that my little man stays in there for anothe 5 and a half week. Once I hit 35 weeks, I will feel so much better. I got some really great news this week. My SIL is pregnant. My DH and I are very close toher and her DH. This is there second also. She is due at the begining of November. It's really funny because her DD and her DH have there B-Days on the first and second. This baby will be due sometime in the first week of Nov. How funny is that? I just love the fact that her baby will be so close in age to Elijah and Gabriel. If they have a boy, I will just die. Now my little sister and her DH need to get on the ball and have a baby. Well thats that for now.
Well we had a sleepy weekend. Aaron and I were so tired we could hardley move. Aaron had to work for a good part of Saturday so when he got home he was done! I have been feeling kind of good for the last few days, till yesturday. I am still having contractions but when they get bad I take another pill and it makes them stop. I am just really sore after they stop. I am also going through that wonderful part of pregnancy when your hips start to spread. I fell like there a razors in there when I walk. I would trade any of this for the world though. I know that everything I have gone through is worth it. I am going to have a healthy and beautiful baby boy hwen this is over. I know one thing that has to get taken care of before I go into labor, or I will go nuts. I have to go to my cyropracter and have him take care of my back. I am in so much pain. btween my boobs and belly, I must have about 100 Lbs up front. I have only gained 16 and I am 30 weeks. My Dr said I am doing wonderful with my weight gain. I do have some really great news. I had no sugar in my pee the last time I went to the Dr. I still have to take my GTT before I go back next Tues. I am sure I will pass it. Well I guess thats that for now.
Dayna, I am going nuts, Your temps are wonderful. I am going to pray so hard for you until you test. I pray that this is your monthand that you can have a wonderful November baby (like me :D).
Jill, Where are you girl? How is that sweet little baby doing? How was your shower? Have you even had it yet? I really need to hear from you.
Well, we went and got most of the things that we needed for the baby. We really didn't need all that much but of what we did need, we got almost all of it. Then we came home and started Spring Cleaning, so to speak. I feel like I am going to die. My wonderful DH has done almost all of the work. He is really trying to help me take it easy. Well thats really that fro now. Back to cleaning. :shock: :?
Well I just don't know what to think. I have been contracting like crazy since Saturday. I haven't called my Dr because all they are going to tell me to do is go to the hospital. Then I get there and they only wind up stopping. I mean they aren't continual. I get them and they will sometimes last all day and then stop at night. I think they stopped last night. I actually got some slepp so I assume they stopped. I don't know what to do. I feel stupid clling the Dr every time. I really hate spending the night away from my family. Poor Aaron can't sleep when I am not here. He is tired enough as is. I told everyone that as of 35 weeks I am going off these pills. I figure they really aren't doing there job very well anyway. I had Elijah at 35 weeks and he was perfect. I also found out at my Appt yesturday that I failed my GD test. Normal is 130 or lower, I had 196. I just want to have this baby and have it all be done. My contractions from Sunday stopped for almost all of Monday and a good part of Yesturday, I had a Ob appt at 2pm yesturday and while I was there they started up again. They keep calling them BH but they hurt so bad. I had BH with Eli and they never hurt once, until I went into labor. I feel so stupid. I hate being one of thoes women that calls the Dr all the time but at the same time, I get scared that the contractions I am haveing are going to start to change my cervix. I just hate going to the hospital once a week. I have gone to the hospital so many times during this pregnancy, I might as well just pack my stuff and move in there. My Ob told me yesturday that the babies head is sitting right on my cervix and that is way I am in so much pain. But she also said that I was still thick and closed so that really shocked me after all the contactions I had this weekend. Aaron kept telling me to call the hospital last night but I didn't want to. I have to drive almost 45 minutes to get ther and I really didn't feeling like making that drive at 9 or 10 o'clock at night. I just wanted to stay in my own bed in my house with my family. I don't know what to do. I just want to have him and have this be over. I am just so tired.
Well we had a nice weekend. We are going at noon to look at a house that we may want to get. I don't want to get too excitedover that because I am really not looking forward to byeing a house. Not that I don't want to own my own house I just don't want to have to go throuhg all the crap you have to go throught to get it. I took a good part of Sat and cleaned out the car like you wouldn't believe. I washed it vacumed it and then used my Bissol Little Green and cleaned all the carpets and seats. The car looks almost new. All ready for baby. The house still needs a few things done but for the most part we are ready. I even packed my bags. Elijah seems like he is going to be just great when the baby comes. He is going throught this screaming faise though. He did get sicj=k at the end of last week to but it was weird. When he got sick last year, he would get it bad every time. Well on thurs we noticed he felt hot so I took his temp and it was 102. we gave him tylinol and off to bed. The next day I took him to his Dr and they did blood work at it showed influenza (spelling???) but he never got a smniffal or anything, just a small temp. That night his fever broke and he has bee great ever since. Now I have what he had Full Force. I haven't slept in 2 days, not that I really slepp at all. Now it's worse. I had to sleep on the couch last night. I have to tke my pill at 3am and I left them in the bedroom. I had fallen asleep for a bit and at 3am my sweet husabnd came walking out with water and my pill. I think that was very sweet. He coould have just turned over and went back to sleep. He works harder then any man his age. My father hated every guy we ever brought home. Aaron he LOVES. He is a bills fan and my father knows that he would kill himself to take care of us. My father respects that.
Well thats that for now.
Well it looks like we found our house. It was a HUDD home so we are getting it really cheep. It reall is nice. It does need some cosmetic work. We are going to try and get $5,00 to 10,000 over what we offer so that we can do some fixing up before we move in. The whole house needs new carpets and floors for the kitchen and three batheooms. We also have to get a fridge, stove, dishwasher, washer and dryer. We rent right now so we don't have any of that. We also need new cabnets in the kitchen. The other big thing we want to do is put privacy fence up. We have a nice big yard but we alos have a busy road out front and a house on either side. I want to be able to go outin the summer with the boys and let them run around and not have to worry about them going out front into the road. It was the funniest thing. Aaron and I can never agree on a house. We took one look at this one and both said yes right away. This is also the first house we looked at that needed work. How funny is that?
I really hope we get it. We know that we morethem qualify for it. The thing is, because it is a HUDD home we have to bid online for it. I just pray that our bid wins. I think we have a good chance. I am trying to not get too excited because I don't want to be let down. When it does go up I am going to be going nuts. I guess though that we should find out by the next day or so if we got it. The best part about this house is, it is in the school district we wanted and it is about a 2 minute walk down the road to the shop were Aaron works. I am going to pray like crazy that we can get this house. I have never wanted a house so bad.
Well thats that for now.
Dayna, Thank you hun for your sweet little notes that you put at the end of all your journal enties. I love that you still want to know wahts happening with me. (((((BIG HUGS)))))
Jill, I was happy to see that you are doing well. I am sorry that you aunt is not doing so well. I will keep praying for her and your mom. I am glad she is doing a bit better.
[color=blue][I just found out that I failed my 3 hour glucose test. I now have to go on a low carb diet and test my BS . I DON'T like needles. I don't know if I can do it myself. Aaron is being wonderful. He is so worried that I am scared and he doesn't want me to worry. I am really not worried, I am more mad then anything right now. I really just want this over with. I don't think I can handle anymore bad news. I am so done haveing kids after this baby. I don't think I would live through haveing another baby. I really can't even begin to explain how mad I am right now. I know I will be fine and I know the baby will. I just want to have a normal birth and thats it.
Well, I got my kit on Sat. I can't believe how easy it is to do. I HATE needles and I really thought that I wouldn't be able to test myself, but it doesn't hurt at all. I got the test so that I can test on my arm or leg. I think that makes a big difference. I have a bunch of little holes on my left arm now though. I am a bit nevous. I may have to got into the hospital on Weds. I talked to my OB yesturday and she asked what my levels have been, when I told her she wasn't happy. I may need insulen shots. I am going to see over the next three days, if I can get my levels to come down. If I can keep them under 130, I will be fine. I have to test 4 times a day so it is going to take some work. I am not worried at all. My husband on the other hand is very worried about me and the baby. I keep telling him that everything is going to be just fine. I hate seeing him stress so much. He is really worried about me having to got to the hospital. I think I can get my levels to come down before then. If not, I guess I am just one of thoes women who gets this and needs insulen to help it. I just pray that it goes away after Gabriel comes.
Well thats that for now.
I hope all my girls had a wondeful weekend,and a great week.
Well I had to go to the hospital. I am here for at least 3 days. I was addmited for my sugar levels but I am also dialating. I am 2 cm. I knew I was when I went to the Dr today. I had some spotting last night and I have had some very bad CTX for the last three days. I am fine but I really wish I could be home with my men. I am dealing with this very well I only cried when I was told that I was 2 cm. I am just hoping the little man will stay in for a few weeks. If he does come I will be praying hard that he is ok.
Well thats that for now, they want me back in bed.
I don't know were to start. I have had the worst weekend of my life. I was addmitted to the hospital on Weds, for my sugar levels. Friday night I guess Gabriel got sick of waiting, so I went into labor. The hospital I was at would not deliever him before 35 weeks so I was packed into and ambulance and shipped almost an hour away to another hospital. I am alone thorugh this whole thing. My poor sweet DH is trying so hard to get to me. We had a problem finding someone to take our son at first and then I told him to stay at my Inlaws until I call him, because I thought it would be a waste to drive that far if they were just going to stop my labor. I get to the new hospital and that is just what they planned on doing. I was given Mag sulfate. I was also given a Steroid shot before I left my other hospital and then anotherone 24 hours later. I was also put on antibiotics (spelling???). I hav had 7 IV's since friday. My arms are all brused and I look like a junky. I was in so much pain this weekend. Between labore and being poked a=every five seconds with something. I am just worn out. I have to try to hold my little man in until next monday and then all will b fine. They did 2 U/S's and they think he would have been just fine but they would rather be safe then sorry. I am scared to death about goinginto labor now. I remember VERY WELL, how bad it hurts and now I am scared. I think it will be better next time because I wont be alone. My little man is moving all over the place now. The Mag made him a bit sleepy most of the weekend so I didn't feel him move alot. I am just so Happy to be home. I missed my men SO MUCH!!!!!! I cried so much this weekend. I just hope that this baby waites one more week and then when ever he is ready is fine with me.
Well thats that for now. I really need to lie down.
I hope all my girls are doing well.
I can't believe that I am saying this, but all considering, I feel great today. I really feel like I will make it to monday. That is the first time all week that I have felt that way. I am also so much more in love with my DH then I was even a week ago. He has been my rock since all this stuff has happened. I sware he always surprises me. I think he wont be able to handle some thing and he always rises to the occation. He has taken such great care of me. I don't sleep much at night and when I am awake I find myself just watching him sleep and I think to myself how lucky I am to have him. It doesn't hurt that he is HOT!!!!!! I really don't have much else to talk about today. I am all set for this baby to come. I have everyting I could need for him. I am scared about delivery though. I just really wish things could go the way they did with Eli. Well thats that for now.
Dayna, How are you hun? I am praying that the hag will stay away for about 9 months. How are you feeling now? Any better?
Jill, How is the baby doing? How is your mom and Aunt? I hope all is well. Are you feeling any CTX?
WE MADE IT!!!!!! I am 35 weeks today. You can come when ever you want now Gabriel. I feel like a huge weight was taken off of me. I just can't waite to hold my little man now. I think he is takeing me very serious, because I am having some contractions now. I have had alot of pressure today to. I will see how I feel as the day goes on. I have a OB appt tomarrow so I will see if I have dialated anymore. I was 2 cm last week. I will bet I am at least a half cm more, if not more. I am getting really excited. I have the babies bed and all his little cloths ready. I can't waite. Now that I don't have to. I just hope he isn't too big. That is the only part about the GD that scares me.
Well thats that for now.
Dayna and Jill, I hope you have a great week.
Well He is here! This is going to be long.
It all started on Tuesday. My husband woke up at 4 am because he was in alot of pain. I called his Dr and he told me to bring him to the ER, but I was not allowed to drive so at 4 am I had to call my in laws and my FIL came and got him. My MIL came about an hour later to get Elijah and myself. When we got to the ER, Aaron was all sorts of drugged up. It was kind of funny to see him that way. It turned out he was passing a kidney stone. They said it was the closest thing to labor that a man could ever experience.
I had started contracting a bit more then I thought I should, while we were at the hospital. I had a OB appt that afternoon at 2:45pm, so I thought I would waite till then since I was seeing my Dr anyway.
I rested for the rest of the morning hoping they would settle down before my appt. My MIL stayed at our house to take care of us and our son so that Aaron and I could get some rest and then she was going to take care of Eli while I went to my appt.
At around 1pm, Aaron felt much better and he called one of his emploies to come get him so he could get some work done for a bit. I went with my MIL and son to my OB appt. I told them that I had been contracting for most of the morning and they were 4 minutes apart. Dr. Gungin checked me and told me I was 4 cm and that she wanted me to go to the hospital, that she thought I would have the baby that day. I get there and her partner was the one on call and she said she wanted to stop my labor. I told then NO!!!! I had 2 steroid shots and I have had just about every test they could do and everyone thought that he would be just fine to come out and that anymore labor and he might not handle it for much longer.
I was told to walk and thats what I did. that night they wanted me to get some sleep so I would have energy to push. I didn't argue. I took a sleeping pill they gave me and then the next day I started my walking again. I walked so much that day that that by the end of the day my legs and back were killing me. That night my OB thought one more night of sleep would do it and they said if I was 5 cm the next day that they would break my water.
The next morning my OB came in and checked me at about 8 am and I was 5 cm. She broke my water and I went from what I thought was a 10 on the pain scale to a 50. My contactions hurt so much more then I ever thought possable. I was beggng my nurse for my Epi. About an hour later I got it. I labored for about and hour and a half more and then I told them my epi was going away abit and I was wondering if they could give me another dose, they wanted to chack me first to see were I was. The Dr looked at me and asked if I was ready to push and I told her not without my Epi. They would not give me anymore. I was crying becasue the pain of the contractions was so bad.
I started to push at about 11:58am. I had a hard time pushing through the contractions at first because it hurt so bad. I felt myself loosing control and then after getting abit mad at myself I looked in my Dr's glasses and saw my angels head crowning. It really helped me to focus on pushing him out.
At 12:15 pm on March 25, 2004, our pefect littele Gabriel Aaron came into the world at 35 weeks 3 days at 7lbs 5.5oz and 21 anda half inches. His first APGAR was 8 and his next 5 minutes later was a 9. The Dr was very happy with his condition. I knew he would be just fine.
I can't tell you how blessed I am. I never knew that two little boys could make me so happy. I never knew that a single person could make my life fell so complete. My husband and my sons are the air I breath. They are my life and I thank God for them. I thank God for my wonderful little family. I thank God for the wonderful friends I have made here and for the honor of getting to know the wonderful women on the April 2004 board and for my beautiful friend Dayna.
I am very tired today and I need to feed the little man.
Lots of LUV!!!!!!!!!
I will post pictures very soon.
Well this will be my last post on this journal board. I am moving on to the Baby Journal board for anyone who wants to follow how the kids and I are doing. I haven't been able to get on because Gabriel has had a had time getting the jaundice out of his body. We have been to the Dr's everyday this week. We got some really great news today though. His bili count went down today so it is worj=king out of his body. I was so happy. It really wsan't something I was worried about as far as if it would hurt him. I just didn't want toihave to go back to the hospital. Well that isn't going to happen now. If anyone wants to see pictures of my wonderful new son, you can check him out in my gallery under Newmama1. Well thats that for now.
