Running out of time...

There are not enough hours in the day, and definitely NOT enough hours in the night for more hours in the day...

I am hoping to start blogging more often again, and not just about baby, but my journey back to my weight loss.  I need to really start eating healthy again, to make sure baby is getting enough nutrients from me.  I am hoping for some warmer weather so I can get baby in the Chicco carrier we just purchased and get out of the house for some fresh air =)

My weight loss goal was 135lbs.  My new weight loss goal is my last low weight, 160lbs.  I gained a shit load of weight with my pregnancy!  and I'm okay with that =)  Now it's time to start getting back on track.  So I figure I'll use this time to get my eating habits healthy, and once cleared at my OB postpartum check up in 4 weeks, I'll start working out again.  Oh and having sex!  What's sex?

I'll probably start doing McFatty Mondays again...Not sure if I'll start before or after my postpartum checkup.  Do I get to claim 10lbs per breast for breast feeding?  If not, than I'm totally scared!

Here is me and munchkin yesterday before his doctors appt.!\

Baby News

Baby Isaac is doing great! His levels didn't go up as much as we were afraid of, and he seems less yellow today =) We went in for an appointment and were happy to hear that Isaac has gained almost 6 oz over the weekend!

Sleep is going good... I guess! Or maybe it's the excitement of having him, but lack of sleep isn't effecting me yet. He's such a lovely baby, I love him so much already!

He's been belly laughing in his sleep and smiling, which I thought was gas...But his Pediatrician said it's smiles and laughs from the little memories he has formed already. Who knows, I'll take it!

My breast milk came in Thursday night, which was a relief! This baby acted like I was starving him! He eats every 2 hours, and at every feed my breasts are so swollen full of milk, that he falls into a milk coma by time he gets the other breast.

Feeding time again! Hoping to get more time to post and catch up on everyone elses blog soon

Might be a few days before I get to update again....

We got released yesterday, and it's been tough. Baby is sick =( He has lost 1 lb so far and has high level of jaundice. We will be back in the hospital.

My c-section didn't go as well as I hoped, I reacted badly to the spinal, and my blood pressure dropped...and that's when everything went blurry and I was in and out of concionious.

It's almost time!

I finally packed my bag yesterday, and the baby's, too.  I *think* I have all that I'll need =)  OHMYGOSH It's almost time!!!!

AS of right now (ask me later) my only anxiety is how to check myself in lol!  I was so excited at my surgery consult last week, that I had forgotten to ask.  Do I just go up to L&D tomorrow at my check in time?  Do I bring all my stuff with me, or should I leave it in the car and have the husband fetch it after?  Can I wear makeup?  I better be able to!  I look like I have no eyelashes or eyebrows without it! (blond hairs!)

Hrmm.. Should I wear new panties? :P  Or will I be pantiless? lol!  Seriously, this is what's going through my mind.  16 years ago when I had my daughter, I wore the net panties at the hospital, and they supplied the pads...Do you bring your own to the hospital in the States?

More anxiety!

I made the mistake of leaving the camera situation till the last minute.  What I mean is, I didn't let my husband touch my camera till last night.  Lord help him.  He cannot take pictures!  I am hoping/praying for atleast 5 semi good ones right after birth.  I'll do the rest after I recover!

Oh! and please pray that he does NOT drop the camera on the baby...I had him put the camera's neck strap on last night!  During my transfer for my IVF cycle, he managed to drop a mini portable video player on my head...

I'm hoping to update some more, to catch any more thoughts as I get closer to tomorrow!

Baby Hats - nomnomnom!

I am so behind the cool kids!  I just recently found and fell in love with Etsy.  They have all sorts of neat stuff!  and some weird stuff (glass dildos)

I've been on the hunt for a cute warm hat for Isaac.  I got him a few, and one nice thick on at Motherhood...But I couldn't find any newborn sizes that had ear flaps.  Till I found this seller on Etsy.  It was too cute to pass up.  Bonus? She lives 45 minutes away.  So I ordered his hat at lunch time yesterday, and it just arrived now!  YAY!

I just had to share!

My view at 38 weeks

My Appointment

I had my very last OB appt and surgery consult!  Cervix was checked and it was closed.  again.  Baby is still super high with no signs of wanting to come down.

I voiced my concern about the baby's size, and explained that I just can't picture a baby that's ready in there.  He reassured me he was ready, and he also voiced his concern over me trying a VBAC.  Which I am not doing.  He thinks baby is over 8lbs.  We'll see!

I check in to the hospital next Tuesday at 10am, and baby should be out by 12:15!  I'm so excited!

I'm also guessing the baby's weight.  Ignoring the Dr's prediction.  My daughter was 4 days late and weighed only 7.7, this guy will be born a week early, so I am guessing between 7.3 and 7.10 at the most =)
