Discovering Me

Me on having babies, losing babies, trying to have babies and hoping to bring this one home.

Ticker's Good

It's funny how I missed blogging so much when I was unable to, and now that the ISP is back in order, I'm having trouble with what to say. I mean, there's plenty, I suppose, but is any of it really interesting to anyone but me? I can't say.

Fetal Echo went well today. CC's ticker is in fine working order, far as we can tell at the moment. She was a good girl and didn't move too much while the doc tried to get his pictures. He was pushing SUPER hard on my belly in the general vacinity of my Lovenox injections. Man, ouch. So, now we go in next week for a regular appointment and then in a couple weeks we start fetal monitoring. These last few weeks have gone fast.

Last week I came down with some nasty crud that landed me in the hospital for a day. I was having trouble catching my breath because I was caughing so hard. OB was concerned about my O2 levels, so they kept me while they watched to make sure I was recovering quick enough. I have never had a cold like that. Initially they thought it was strep, but turns out it was just a nasty cold. I'm just today feeling a bit better. Of course, I passed it to Gracie, but she didn't seem to get hit as hard as I did. Thank God for small favors.

Mom & dad are packing their house as I write. They'll drive here with some stuff we're keeping for them and then fly to Malaysia in a couple of weeks. It's going to be sad when they're gone. It's still a plane ride away, and I know we'll still see them as much as we do now, but phone calls won't be as easy and hopping a plane at a moment's notice won't happen. Mom will be back in September to help with Carlie, but we won't see dad until Spring. Sniff, sniff.

Life's really pretty boring at the moment. I have some thoughts about having our third girl, but I don't really know how to put them into words. I'm happy and excited, but I certainly would have been happy with a boy as well. I need to come up with a post to get all that stuff down.

Miss you.

I feel like a piece of me is missing while I am out of the bloggy loop. My limited time at Panera a couple of times a week doesn't nearly get me caught up and feeling back in the loop with all of you guys. I think the issue is resolved now, unfortunately, it's going to be the 5th before the new company can get things installed and running. For the record, I hate a certain company with the first latter "V" and the last "Erizon". They suck. Well, maybe living in the country sucks for certain things, but they should really never have told me they could pull it off.


I talked the doc into another u/s next week to see if we can get a look between this kid's legs. It feels really frivolous to ask, but dammit, my mom will be here. And, she's moving. To freaking Malaysia. In two weeks. I need to know dammit. I need to know if we can go through what's in the basement for girlies as if we are bringing another home or as if we are sorting for those items to be given away. I need to shop. I need to sort out what's going to happen with the bedroom and whatnot. I NEED TO KNOW.

So there.

We have to buy a lot of stuff. I gave away everything baby related, except a few toys and all of the clothes we have stashed. I don't even have an infant seat or a crib. Did I mention we haven't sold the Vegas house? No? Well, yeah, that would be nice since we are going to have to spend a small fortune on this baby.

Having said that, Father's Day is coming. I did something really silly for Jim and spent way too much money doing it. It's a watch I know he wants but he's been too cheap to buy for himself. He totally deserves it. I want him to have it. I just feel really bad...see previous paragraph. Am I stupid? Wait, don't answer that. We cancelled our vacation, so we didn't have to spend that money. It'll be okay, right?

What else... Oh, I miss you guys. I feel like I have soooo much to catch up on with all of you.

Oh, hey...what do you all think of these names:

Jack James (would have the same initials as Jim)


Carlie Ann


Talk amongst yourselves....
