The past 2 weeks....

Well, I finally managed to find a few minutes to update the blog. The past 2 weeks being a Mom have been tough. I have been struggling with post pardom. Turns out from friends and family this is quite common, although I WAS NOT prepared to have it, or deal with it. I just fell apart it seemed. I would cry constantly over nothing really. I didn't really want to deal with her. It was almost like I was afraid of her. I didn't want to be alone with her. I really struggled whe David went back to work after the first week. I would get so wound up I would feel so sick and could not force myself to eat, hence my 36 pound weight loss. And I had only gained 1 1/2 lbs more than I was before I was pregnant with her. So, although I didn't loose it a good way, I would like to keep it off and even loose some more. I just felt so overwhelmed. I just felt like if David was just here I would feel better.
Friends and family once they realized what was happening really stepped up to help. I have been overwhelmed with love and support from everyone. People have been making us meals, stopping by and keeping me occupied or helping with Kaylynn. I JUST NOW am starting to feel ok. Like my sister in law Marianne said, we'll be ok, we just have to find our new "normal." And that is another thing that was and is hard, but getting better, is we have done whatever we wanted for the past 12 years. We've been married for 9 years and it is hard to find a new sense of how it's going to be from here on out. Not bad I guess, just different. It is starting to fall into place, probably will more so when I go back to work Sept 6th when we'll be back to more of a routine.
So, I would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and help over the past 2 weeks! We truly are Blessed!!

Tomorrow is be induced that is!

Looking less and less likely that I will go today or tonight, although you never know! But it's looking more like I'll be calling tomorrow morning at 6 am to get a time set to be induced. We are really hoping they say just come in right then! Praying for a quick and easy delivery! Please keep us in your prayers! Thank you! Hopefully next post will be pictures and an arrival notice!! ;)

The Verdict Is In...

Today was my last Doctor's appt. He said I am still at "A good 4 cm" dilated and 80% effaced. He also told me I have what they like to call a "favorable cervix" interesting, huh?! LOL!! So he'd really like to see if I would just go on my own. SO...he is letting me go this weekend yet to see if I will go into labor on my own, if not, then I will be calling the hospital Monday morning at 6am to schedule an induction. He said they may say at 6am, come right in now, or they may say maybe a little later on, but def Monday. So, won't be sure of the time yet if it does happen to be Monday. We will let people know, when we know. Keep praying, as I am still scared people!! :)

40 Weeks and Due Date Has Arrived!

Well. July 6th is here! And as you can see, I am still pregnant! Tomorrow is my Doctor's appt. so we'll see where I'm at and see what days we have picked that I can be induced. Although I am still scared, we are also ready for her to just be here already and I am ready for her to be out. I am getting really uncomfortable. Seems like with me still working full time that by the time I get to the end of the day I have so much pain and pressure in the pelvis area I can barely walk! Can't get comfortable to sleep either. So, PRAY for us as we are any day about to be first time parents. We are nervous, scared, excited and alot of other things!

Happy 4th of July!

This fourth of July weekend was sort of busy. David had to work Friday, then did some electrical work at a friend's house Fri. night. Sat. he worked all day again at his side job. Then Sat. evening we went to my parents for a picnic. I only took one picture of Brooke eating an ice pop. We hung out there quite awhile.

Yesterday we ate dinner at his parents then at 5 we were off for another picnic at Kevin and Dana's house. We stuffed ourselves again and then they did fireworks. And I got ate alive by mosquito's! Today we don't plan on doing to much. Just some things around the house.

Back to work tomorrow I guess, since a certain little girl still hasn't made an appearance yet. 2 days left until my actual due date. My Doctor's appt isn't until Thursday. It seems very far away to me! All I can do is keep taking it one day at a time. Easier said than done.

These couple are of her too. These are a couple from her 1 yr old pics they had taken.
Love this one! I bought her that tutu outfit! :)
