I didn't fall off the face of the earth

Things have just been a little crazy around here. Finally we are settled into our new apartment...again. We're upstairs this time so no flooding. :D Both Erick and I are still working FT and trying to keep up. If anyone knows the cleaning fairy please give her my address and send her this way. :D

Myelle's doing great. We finally weaned Myelle from her pacifier this weekend. Hey she's only 2 1/2. Tonight's been the best she's gone to sleep. I'm amazed and don't know why I'm still up because I should be sleeping since she is. We're also starting to potty train. She does really good if I remind her, but not so good on her own. Hopefully she'll be out of diapers by the time the baby comes though.

So back in December I had a request for some belly pics. Here it is finally. This is at 25 weeks. I'll have Erick take another one tomorrow (32 weeks) and I'll post it ASAP.



I sure am feeling rather large and it's hard to sleep, but here's crossing my fingers that everything will continue to go okay. I have a Dr. appointment on Wednesday. Last appointment my BP had spiked and they adjusted my meds. It seems to be working. We visited Mountain View hospital the other day and just loved it!! So I'll be delivering there instead of at EIRMC. We're also going to try for a VBAC. Although I'm getting a little nervous about it. Silly really mostly I don't want to get my hopes up and then have a Csection because I struggled so bad emotionally with that with Myelle. I know that a few of you were aiming for a VBAC and ended up with a Csection. Any words of comfort or advice would be much appreciated.
We had a great Valentine's day! Erick is super sweet and got me tulips and cooked me dinner. I absolutely love him.
I promise I won't wait so long to post next time. :D

You look so cute. I am glad things are going well. I hope that you are able to do a VBAC! You can do it!!! Just remember that the best outcome is a healthy Mommy and a healthy Baby!!

I so hope that you are able to get your VBAC. I really wanted to VBAC with my second one and in the end it didn't work out. I do know how disappointing it is to have a cesarean! I was depressed for quite a while after my first cesarean, but in the end I just had to tell myself that I needed to be thankful that both my baby and I were okay.

It's always great to hear from your bunch. I love to see up dates. Your new little one is getting so close to coming. How exciting!!!Kobe finally got rid of his binkie after christmas. I didn't think that day would ever come so i'm glad she is doing great. the potty things...another story, best of luck there. I had a feeling the first time that it would end up in a c-section so i was alittle mentally prepared, but i was more scared the second time and i had opt to go ahead with a repeat c-section. I get nervous either way. It seemed i was more sore in the recovery this time, but it could have been because i came home sooner. No matter what ends up happening, you will be blessed either way!ains

Audra,
Although all of my deliveries were vaginal, NONE of them went the way I wanted. I didn't get to cuddle the baby close right after birth. There was always something wrong with them, and usually with me. After Ethan, I quit hoping for any type of ideal, and went in praying that the complications wouldn't cost anyone their lives. ALL my babies went to the NICU for at least a short while. I know the emotional pain of things not going the way you wanted, or the resentment you might feel toward your own body for "betraying" you and your dreams.
It has helped me through my rougher patches to remember that the Lord loves me and won't give me more than I can bear. I admit that I have been in disagreement with Him on that, but with His help, I've survived. We will be hoping and praying for you. I am so amazed at all you are able to do! You inspire me!
