Update (33weeks)

Today I had my OB appt.  Due to the itching, nausea, bellyaches and just feeling plain rotten, I got myself a date with the blood lady, and am now waiting for my call from the hospital for an appt for an ultrasound of my liver.  We're hoping it's nothing but we can't ignore the signs of possible bile salts..

My next appt with the OB is in 2 weeks, and then after that it will be weekly!  I will probably get to see the baby again at my next appt, too!  Turns out I am STILL measuring perfectly 5 weeks ahead.  If we're still growing on target, and still 5+ weeks ahead, we will for sure need to check on his weight and my fluids.


On December 24th, I was 32 weeks pregnant as I turned 31!  I had a good day, the only thing I asked for was a guacamole burger...really!  But I was surprised that day...and confused! 

I woke up and my husband gave me my gift, which was a bottle of my favorite perfume, Givenchy - Hot Couture, and then we planned out the day and the dinner.  Imagine my surprise when a huge bouquet of flowers showed up at my door from my mommy!  Attached was a card "Happy Birthday Kelly!!  Love, Mom"  and a balloon.....


I called mom up to thank her, and wait to see if it was a joke.  It wasn't.  It was a mistake.  I had my husband call to make sure it was a mistake, and NOT a statement that 31 meant I was getting old and ill.  They apologised and sent a bunch of Birthday balloons in return and a gift card!

Then UPS showed up....With a box of my favorite chocolates from my mom! 

I was STARVING, so we ordered my Birthday dinner to go, and went to pick it up.  I could hardly wait to walk in the door and bite into that burger!  and I am sure you can imagine my face when I did bite into it, and blood dripped out!  >confused<  We had to call in, and ask for another one and then we had to drive 15 minutes back there, and 15 mins home till I was finally able to eat it!  Oh and they gave us a gift card, too =)

Other than the confusion, it was a great day!

The next morning was Christmas!

Nathaniel and I went to bed sorta late that night in hopes we would actually sleep in.  BUT nope!  I got up at 5:30 am, and saw Nat was just laying there too! So we got up =)  It was a bit before 7am that I decided that we HAD to wake Jayleen up!  I turned on the kids hallway light, and said SANTA CAME!  and she flew out of bed, just like she did when she was 5 =)

The rest of the day we all lounged around and had a great time =)

You'd think I had a cat....

If you saw me naked!

I'm not talking about stretch marks, I'm talking about SCRATCH marks!  I am seriously itchy.  It started a few weeks ago, a bit of itchiness on my legs, then belly, and now....NOW I can't stop scratching!  I've tried lotions, cool baths....

Yesterday to be honest was the WORST day for the itchiness.  I scratched and scratched, till I burned!  My belly is now worse than my legs, and when I scratch it, it feels like it's on fire.  Last night I developed a red blotchy rash all over my belly.  Thank goodness it was gone by 10 pm.  I was getting worried.

THEN I woke up looking half chipmunk!  The left lymph node on my neck is puffed out!  I really hope I'm not getting sick in time for my Birthday  =[  All I asked for this year was a real whipped cream cake, and a HUGE burger.  Serious.

Calling the OB this morning, to see if there is anything she can prescribe for the itch.  I really don't want to be sitting in a tub of oatmeal, praying that it helps.  I want something that WILL help!

Wish me luck!

Update:  Yep, update already!  Nevermind about the OB being any help.  I had my husband call for me, BECAUSE they always try to sucker me into going to L&D everytime I try to get an appt that same day.  EVERY time they send me to L&D it costs me $100..They have sent me there 4 times already instead of seeing me.  So I wanted my husband to be more assertive than I can be with them on the phone.  (I have a hard time with being assertive, and being mean)  But nope!  They make you talk to the nurse who will assess the situation, and make the final decision, and she chose NOT to even speak to my husband.  When I want to talk about the problem, I am to call back myself.  I'd rather go to the drugstore and get Aveeno Oatmeal stuff.  Thanks.

31 weeks pregnant

Yesterday I had my lovely OB appointment.  It went well, till she measured my tummy.  I am measuring at 36 weeks....woah!  She said a good chunk of it could be because baby was sticking his bottom out under my ribs, or big baby, or extra fluid. 

So 2 minutes later I had an ultrasound!  Fluid level was great, baby looked awesome and then they tried to take a look at my old c-section scar to see which sort of cut it was.  Baby HATED it.  He was kicking up a storm, and didn't seem to like the pressure, or Mommy on her back.

We did get to see he has a head full of hair!  LONG hair!  Who knew you could see that with ultrasound? lol  He is also weighing in at 4lbs so far.  The Ob lady said not to expect a small baby  =)

Other than that, and how small framed I am, I am carrying all in the belly, which is really making me pop out, everything looked perfect =)

Crazy Week!

Wooo! The crazy week is finally OVER!

It's been a busy week, with visitors, a Birthday, a Christmas party...and just lack of sleep.  On the 7th my mother and one of her brothers flew in and stayed with us for 3 days to celebrate Jayleens Birthday.  And the entire time they were here meant we were BUSY. 

The 1st day they arrived we hit the mall for 3 hours, then Jayleens Birthday I made everyone apple pancakes, then lunch, and we had an appt at the salon to get our hair done, and Jays eyebrows waxed for the 1st time!  Then we had to head home so I could make a bunch of Chicken Gyros, eat cake and make it to the 9pm show of Tangled 3D.

The last day they were here, we went to the mall...AGAIN.  Called my husband at work to meet us to have lunch.  Came home, sat down for a few hours, then headed to Walmart then the Airport.  I slept like a baby that night!

Here are some of the pictures of the crazy 3 days! 

 Here is mom with the dogs.  The best thing about this picture is the bone that Molly is holding.  She had lost the bone in the yard before the big snow fall, and had found it that morning since all the snow melted.  It was MAYBE 2 minutes after this picture was taken that we noticed it had poo on it!
 Mom and Jayleen.  It's hard to get a picture of the teenager.  She has the timing down perfect on cameras, and the moment you snap the picture, her tongue is out!  This time I was a bit faster than she was...But that tongue was on it's way out!
 Right before we left for the airport.  I got a picture of the gang.  My husband, mom and daughter =)
AND this picture was taken last night, at 30weeks 4 days.  Someone made a comment that I looked ready to pop, and then asked if I was having twins....I am thankful to be pregnant, just concerned at how large people are seeing me as!

Sweet Heaven!

I found Gummy PreNatals! 

We went to pick up some more prenatals last night, and my husband said "Too bad you can't get gummy ones" and then the angels sang...or something.  We saw the glorious pink bottle!

Been a busy couple of days.  I'll have an update soon =)

Feb 8th

That's the scheduled C-section!

Once we get my op notes to see what sort of scar I have on my uterus, I may try a vaginal birth...IF I go into labor on my own by Feb 8th!  Also depending on babies size...

And that brings me to the rest of today's appointment..We showed up for our appt right on time, but it seriously took them 30 minutes before they came and grabbed us!  I was starting to bite my lip when I saw other ladies coming in with appts for 15 and 20 minutes after mine.  Turns out they were suppose to reschedule mine!  But they had forgot. 

They ended up giving me a Starbucks Gift Card to say sorry =)

My blood pressure was perfect, like always.  The blood work for my glucose test came back perfect, 'cept that I had a high white blood count, and need to have another blood test at my next appointment.  Baby is still measuring on the large side (by more than 3 weeks!) and he's head down now!  Lord knows that this little acrobat could do another somersault just to show off at any time!

Next appt in 2 weeks!
