Well It’s been a while since I posted. A few things to update on……
Baby # 7 is another boy!!! So that makes it 6 boys and only 1 girl for us!
I am waiting to get a new van…..a 12-15 passenger van! I was in a car accident on Sept 10th and the insurance company deemed my minivan as a “total loss” – This was not how in envisioned us getting a new van but this is how it’s happening 🙂
School has started and I am enjoying my quiet days with just Jo-Jo and Gus at home. I decided to hold off on kindergarten for Jo-Jo. He just isn’t ready and honestly neither am I lol!
So now I’m just trying to relax and take it easy before our new bundle of joy arrives
Yesterday was my OB appointment! Hubby and I heard the heartbeat on the doppler. It was so awesome! It took a little bit to find the baby but once we did we had a nice strong heartbeat! 166 😀 Hope this means GIRL!!!
So Hubby finally told my MIL I was pregnant. Guess what she said??? “Tell her to take it easy because I can’t come up and help out this time” What???? Like I did anything to make my own water break!!!! Seriously?!?! As if I put myself in that situation. Gosh the nerve of that woman. pPROM happens for many reasons. They never did figure out what caused my water to break at 28 weeks. It just did. But believe you me if there was something I could do that would cause it I would not do it!!! Actually I was taking it easy when it happened. Just the week before I was in the hospital with contractions. So nothing could have stopped it….not even “taking it easy”!!!!!
In 13 days I have my next OB visit. If all is well we will be able to hear the heartbeat!!!! ❤
Looks like we will be adding to our family!!! Lucky # 7 is due November 21, 2012!!!
I figured since I already told all my friends and family I’d share here in the blog world 🙂
Hubby and I are SO excited. At 9 weeks I already have a belly and I’m in maternity bottoms full time.
I’ve been feeling pretty good, no morning sickness. Just feeling tired and run down at times.
I cannot believe this year is almost over. It just flew by!!! I started the year pregnant and I am ending the year with a very busy 9 month old!!!
Highlights from the year – both good & bad:
Tons of snow
My water breaking @ 28 weeks during one of the bad snowfalls
6 weeks of hospital bed rest
Baby Gus is born March 24, 2010 at 9:30 pm – 5lbs. 17 3/4″
7 days in the NICU for Gus 😦
Baby Firsts: smile, rolling over, solid food, creeping/crawling & pulling up
A quiet summer spent mostly at home (rare for me)
Busy Bee started kindergarten……sniff……
Maggie May joined our family
My oldest Goober broke his leg/ankle November 12th
And finally Christmas!!!!
It was a good year. One of the best yet. Gus has truly changed me. I am no longer a ball of stress and self-doubt. I cherish every moment I have with my children. I thank God every day for my family and friends!
My wishes for 2011?
Hmmmm……I can’t think of anything!!! Just more good times with my family ❤
My life is either extremely quiet and boring or busy and crazy. No in-between. Example…..last January I am pregnant with nothing going on….Febuary my water breaks and I am in the hospital on bed rest. Two weeks ago life was quiet (as quiet as can be with 6 kiddos) and all was well…….Last week started an endless trip to doctors!! Thursday I took JoJo in for an ear infection, Friday I took Gus in for a cold, Monday I had my 6 week postpartum check up, Wednesday I was at the doctors for a tender spot on my ankle that was swollen, Wednesday afternoon I was at the hospital for a sonogram of my leg (my doc thought I may have a blood clot [which I do not have PTL]) and Thursday morning I was getting an x-ray of my ankle!
I guess I should be thankful that I do not have too many super busy times (or at least I haven’t had too many in the past other then the whole water breaking early thing! ) Hopefully this isn’t the start of a new trend for my family………..
