Why am I doing this?

Friday, June 27, 2008

I don't even know where to begin. Most of you know, the boy is here. Brodie arrived June 11th and had a rough start. He was in the NICU at Boone b/c of lung issues and then they transferred him to Children's Mercy. He was a sick little boy, but no more!!!!!! He is doing good. We are happy to be home even though big brother is having some issues adjusting. I hope that changes soon. He is really bad at times!

I gotta go for now. Brodie is waking up! Thank you to everyone for the thoughts and prayers!

This going into labor thing is new for me - at least going into labor on my ownwill be new for me! Last time I was induced. So I often wonder if I will know. I am sure I will know - I do remember how much real contractions hurt! That is why I got all excited last night. I woke up about 2:30 am and had contractions for 2 hours straight. I got up and drank some OJ and they went away! Bummer. So what did I get from that - nothing except no sleep and after I went back to bed I laid there and thought about how I should have drank OJ and went to bed with that on my teeth. So on with the waiting game.

I have my weekly Doctor appointment this afternoon. Yippie!

I am still here. Still hanging on! I guess I should not put it that way since I am 37 weeks today. Hey, I am now full term, so I am ready to rock-n-roll!

I have been having a little issue with my feet swelling when I am out in the heat, but once I get inside and put them up, the swelling goes down. That is ok. As long as the swelling goes away, I am in good shape.

Jason is having eye surgery this week. He had eye surgery when he was a kid and they over corrected one eye, so he is getting it fixed. I guess if Brodie does not come today, he needs to wait till the weekend.

I hate to be a sissy or be selfish, but I am done. I really am in need of a few things. 1. I need this kid out of me - especially on days like today when the heat index is 100! 2. I need a break from work. Not that it is a true break since I will be dealing with a newborn, but hey, I take what I can get. 3. I need people to stop telling me how miserable I look! Lie to me people. What happened to you are glowing?!?

I am tired, uncomfortable, hot, irritated, emotional and in pain.

On a roll...

I had another good doctor's appointment today. My blood pressure was good and I am dilated 2 cm. I was excited! Not that it means much, but she assured me my body was getting ready! I am 36 weeks today, so he does need to wait at least one more week to be considered some what full-term. Dillon was born at 37 weeks and he was fine.

We'll see. I think it is getting close, but not too close. I am thinking 2 more weeks.

Place your bets now!! Split the money with me if you make any. I can try and fill full any good, reasonable requests too!
