2 Weeks Old Today

Hailey had her 2 week check up today and she's awesome as ever! She weighs 8lbs. 12oz. and I can't remember exactly how long she was but I'm pretty sure it wasn't quite different from when she was born. She had another heel stick for blood tests as well but this one went alot quicker than the one from when we were in the hospital because she actually cried this time (she slept through the last one) and apparently when they cry it gets the blood flowing quicker (ya learn something new every day!). My little piggy eats CONSTANTLY mostly at night but I'm pretty sure that's cuz she has her days and nights mixed up (mommy's fault from when she was pregnant). But it kinda works out because I'm a bit of a night owl already anyway.

We also went to a WIC appointment today where the nutritionist lectured me on how I shouldn't give her the bottle AT ALL while I'm breastfeeding because it'll cause "nipple confusion". Thing is that she done well on the bottle AND the boob (she gets formula around 2 AM so mommy can get a few hours of sleep when the sun is actually down) in the last 2 weeks so I'm not concerned about that at all. The way I see it she's probably thinking "I don't care what it comes out of as long as I get to eat."

In other news...I've lost 24lbs. I'm down to 178 from the 202 that I was right before I had her. And it still hurts like the bowels of hell to sit down, stand up, or do pretty much anything without being properly medicated (thank you darvocet). I think I sit on my Boppy Pillow more than I feed Hailey on it. I had a follow-up appoinment with my OB on Monday from when I had retained so much fluid that it was sitting on my chest and making it hard to beathe (got a shot that made me pee like Sea Biscuit for an entire day) and he told me to "hang in there" my tearing was rather nasty and it could take a while to heal...My vagina will never be the same again.

41 Weeks 1 Day-WTF?!

My due date was last Satuday. And instead of giving birth I went to the mall and got a pedicure *eye roll*. And here I sit a week late getting ready for Hailey's birthday on Wednesday because now I'm going to have my labor induced this Tuesday night. I've been doing some last minute organizing and cleaning because I now know when she's going to be born for sure. I was kinda hoping for it to be a surprise as to what day she's born but at this point I say "Screw the surprise I just don't want to be pregnant anymore!" I (and pretty much the rest of the world) am ready for this little girl to quit beating around the bush and come out already but like her mother (and grandmother from what I've been told) she just likes to take her sweet time.

I don't intend on posting here again until she is born....

38 Weeks 3 Days-Come out, come out, where ever you are

I wanna be done now. I feel like I weigh a million pounds (you should see me try to get out of a chair) and I'm back to sleeping on the couch downstairs because my bed is too soft and it kills my back. Then again it's not like I sleep much anymore anyway. My usual bed time has become about 6 AM...5 if I'm lucky. I do get a good amount of cleaning in though...But I personally wouldn't call it "nesting". Just boredom.

I've got a week and a half left (hopefully) and I will say that this is the longest week and a half of my life. I'd even go so far as to say that it's worse than the week before you go to Disney World. I've been going to doctor appointments weekly now and even though Hailey has "dropped" I'm not even dilating so I get the feeling that Disney World is more than likely going to be delayed about a week or so. *sigh* We'll see how my appointment goes later on.

UPDATE: Just home from appointment and I'm still closed up like Fort Knox....*grumble*

34 Weeks 2 Days-Shop till you drop

We went to the outlets in Round Rock yesterday and I couldn't help but to go into Carter's Clothes. I'm rather glad that I did because they were having a sale for up to 50% off on what felt like the entire freaking store! I got excited and told Will about it then he handed me $50 and left me to my own devices while he went to the food court.

Me being cheap I kept to the half off racks but that's not to say that there wasn't an ASS LOAD off stuff to pick from like what you normally get when you see a 50% off sign (i.e. nothing in the size you want, ugly, picked over, etc.). I was so excited I had to share it with the world! 

Everything purchased for $47.00!!!Collapse )

32 Weeks 4 Days-Almost Done

Went to the doctor today and all is well. So well in fact that my doctor didn't feel the need to do any 2 week appointments this month. I'll see him again at the end of this month and then I'll see him every week starting in April.

I finished the blanket I'd been crocheting for the last couple of weeks. I think I might do another one cuz I'm just that bored.

Baby's First BlanketCollapse )
I'm feeling particularly large lately...We went to Sea World this past Sunday and It was still kind of chilly out so we were still in coats. There was a "Guess Your Weight" game and I figured I'd try my luck since you can't really tell that I'm pregnant when you look at me dead on...The guy thought I weighed 140 lbs. HA!!! Try 180 pal! I haven't weighed 140 since last August!

30 Weeks 3 Days- New Storage Shelf

I was eating dinner on the couch last night (as sitting up straight has become completely out of the question) when I realized that I wasn't using my right hand...I thought to myself, "Wait a minute. If my left hand is holding the fork, and the right hand is just kinda hangin' out. WTF is holding the plate?!" I look down and it's sitting on my belly. Needless to say I felt like a total idiot for not putting 2 and 2 together in the first place.

26 Weeks 4 Days-Sweet (a little too sweet)

I had my glucose screening to test for gestational diabetes at my OB appointment yesterday. I had to drink this stuff that wouldn't have tasted that bad if it had been mixed with about a gallon of water. Kinda like the syrup that you use for soda only I'm sure that this crap had WAY more sugar in it. What sucked was the fact that I couldn't eat for 2 hours before the test and I was an idiot and set my appointment earlier in the morning so I hadn't eaten AT ALL and was dizzy and nauseated afterwards...Epic fail. I may have been hopped up on sugar but I took my butt to bed as soon as I got home. I hope the test comes back normal so I don't have to do that again. Otherwise everything is good. I see my doctor again in three weeks and after that I'm sure it will go down to 2 weeks. Or atleast I hope they will. That'll at least give me the indication that the end is drawing near. Everyday I grow just a little more tired of being pregnant. My third trimester starts in 4 days and I have already begun my countdown.

25 Weeks-A Shopping We Will Go!

So I went out with Cierra yesterday to do up my registries. We were originally intending on going to Target and Wal-mart but we were only able to finish the one for Target because we had to be at karaoke at a certain time and it had already taken us an hour and a half to do the one for Target. Will and I will more than likely go finish the one for Wal-mart tomorrow.

I found myself to be a scanning fool going nuts over anything and everything pink. I told myself that I wasn't going to go too crazy with the pink stuff but that totally didn't happen. Thanks to Diana, Hailey will actually have something that isn't violently pink. But a  nice yellow.  Target Registry <--Click to see what I'm talking about with the pink stuff.
 
Now keep in mind that I'm not done. I intend on putting the rest of my stuff on the Wal-mart one. Also note that I'm not expecting to get anything from anyone that is intended for personal use (i.e. breast pump, shields, etc.) I just have a thing for making lists and I figured I'd put everything on one list (or in my case 2) I can just go to my registry and pick up/order anything that hadn't been purchased before.
