The Birth Story

If you can recall, my day on March 9, 2011 started with posting a blog about going in to the hospital to be induced. Well, we went in bright and early at 6AM and waited. After maybe like 2 hours or so one of the midwives finally came in to check and see if I was dilated at all. Guess what? Completely closed. Fun. It was then that I knew this labor was going to take forever and I probably wouldn’t have him today. First they started by placing some type of pill (I think it’s called Cervidal or Cervitec […]

Time to Have a Baby!

Yep that’s right! I am about half and hour away from heading to the hospital for my induction! :D It was kind of crazy, because yesterday I had my last NST and little Easton was fine, they didn’t have to wake him up or anything. I’ve been having irregular Braxton Hicks contraction for days now, if not weeks. They’ve just been more prominent and easier to feel this last week. I am hoping they’ve done SOMETHING because I still have no idea if I’m dialated or not. At my appointment last Thursday my doctor asked if I wanted her to […]

The Date Has Been Set!

Welcome to the new domain! Nothing really has changed besides there’s no more hyphen in the URL, however I did have to go through almost every single one of my pages on WordPress to change headers in the HTML. I ordered this awesome theme from Catherine (to celebrate Easton’s birth!) and I didn’t really want to add a bunch of headers as my themes had 5 of them! That’s just too many I think, so I had to go through and change them all. But, now that I’m done with that, I feel so relieved that I can sit back […]

Still Pregnant

Yep. I tried walking around Wal Mart and a few other stores a lot while the hubs and I did a bunch of shopping. Last night we went to Chili’s for some spicy food as that is another thing “said” to bring on labor. Well, I don’t like a lot of spicy food, so what I had wasn’t really that spicy but it made my mouth burn a little bit. But it was GOOD. lol Then when we got home I ate some pineapple, which also is “said” to help. This next part might be TMI, but to top it […]

Update on Life!

Hey all. Sorry I haven’t been around much. The last few days I’ve been super busy setting up my new collective! The wonderful Georgina is hosting it on her hosting domain. You should definitely check it out if you’re looking for hosting! She’s super helpful and quick in setting you up :D Update on the whole vet situation from last week… They did NOT give us free medications!! I talked to the lady at the front desk after she gave me the meds and said it would be $46 or something like that. I was like, “Um… hello? Our dog […]

We’re Getting Closer!

Hey all. Sorry I feel like I’ve been MIA lately and I don’t really have a good excuse. Unless pregnancy is a good enough excuse because that’s my only reason for being so lazy lately! I had a big burst of energy the other day and I wanted to clean the house with the hubby, but instead we were watching TV for most of the night and then I got in a bad mood cuz I really wanted to get things done and instead we just sat there. I was a little upset with him, cuz I at least did […]

Countdown: 5 Weeks 4 Days!

Hey all! Welcome to February! Okay, I’m a little late but I’ve been kinda busy! Still having 3 appointments a week at the hospital… 2 NSTs plus a regular prenatal appointment. I feel like I’m bad luck! During my NSTs I’ve met a few other ladies and both of them have been sent to L&D for “small” things… however, the first lady that this happened to while I was there found out her baby has a heart murmur… not good! The second lady got sent up there to be monitored longer the last time I went in, so I don’t […]
