Such a long time ago

Alright I know its been a long time but I this pregnancy really took it out of me. I am proud to say Sailor Elizabeth Estelle was born on Grandpa Ralph's birthday and our 9th wedding anniverssairy. I even spent Mothers day in the hospital due to the c-section. She weighed in at 7.4 and was 18 1/2 inches, she did lose a pound due to lung issues which had her in special nursery for 2 days, she has now gained it back and she loves to nurse.

I was lucky and had my own room or I really should say God Blessed me with my own room and I am very thankful for that. We were given a knit blanket that was knit by one of the nurses as a mothers day gift, I also received a bag full of hair and body goodies too. The kids and my sister came and I got the usual cards. I did remeber to give my sister a card since she was here helping me with the kids and was not with her girls this year.

My OB appointment

I had my OB appointment. My gosh the weigh in is always stressful. You see I started out FAT, I could put it in more friendly terms "Fluffy" but the real truth is I am FAT..

I have lost weight so I am once again UNDER my pre pregnancy weight. Since I have GD its not easy to gain weight since everything I eat is monitored any fun carbs are not allowed. Well they are but if you can only eat a baby size I don't think its worth it.

I had a NASTY migraine so they gave me med's for that and then wanted me to go to L&D to be checked out for Pre E since I have had it with all the other kid's. I asked the doctor could they just draw the blood and call me if anything is up. I told her I didn't want to "Waste" all day in L&D and then they say is fine go home. She called me later yesterday and the first words out of my mouth was, this can't be good your calling me at home!! She laughed and said no it's ok, Good thing is you have a migraine bad thing is you have a migraine LOL

So all in all it was a good appointment. I have an ultra sound so we will see if this navy bean is a girl or not God willing.

God Bless

She's leaving on a jet plane.

I am finally getting to use my free round trip plane ticket. Well my sister is. I gave up my seat on an very over booked flight in Texas. I didn't mind the weather was super nasty. The ticket runs out next month, I told them I was pregnant and couldnt fly so they said I could transfer it to anyone I wanted.

I am so excited on many levels. I get my older sister to come and visit, we get to go to the movies and out to eat and just catch up. The best part is I know she will take Josiah to the bus stop and pick him up and I get to be even more lazy then I am now!!!

I am blessed that my sister has been here for the births of my last 2 children which is a huge since I have c-sections (4) I will have my 5th the end of April early May and she will be here so dear hubby and stay with me in the hospital and play defence for me.

If I am lucky I may even be able to get hubby to take some leave while my sister is here so we can go out and do more. I will just have to wait and see.

Well dinner is ready, southern breaded chicken breast, garlic roasted baby taters. I am thinking the kids have been good so its the all time Evil Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie ice cream....

I think I can. I think I can!

I think I can pull this blog thing off, note the words I think I can. First let me be the one to say my punaction is well that of a 5th grader. Am I proud of that nope, my sentance and paragraph structure leaves MUCH to be desired. I can blame it on my ADD and that my mind and fingers don't always work at the same warp speed that my random thoughts do.

I have well intentions of posting funny and maybe thought provoking blurbs if they happen to cross my radar. I do plan on posting the daily funny things that happen here at home with 3 kids and one on the way and lest us not forget the male fodder my dear husband gives me.

Now I am off to figure out how to make this little budding blog look intresting so someone other then me knows about it.
