100th post!

Well this is my 100th post on this blog wow. We had a great Christmas this year. The kids had a blast. I went to see my CNM today for a check up, I will be 34 weeks tommorow. She told me today that depending on how big the baby is,when they check her size in two weeks. They will either induce me at 37 weeks after an amnio to check lung maturaty or they will go ahead and wait until 38 weeks without an amnio. So unless for some reason she happens to be small at my next ultrasound I should have her at the most in 4 more weeks. Wow when I type that out it seems really soon. Hopefully it will go a little smoother this time around. Here are some Christmas pics:

Our week!

Well we've had an interesting week. Buster and Sweetpea were both sick on different days with a stomach bug not fun. I tweeked my back earlier this week and had to lay around for a few days :( I had an ultrasound on Thursday and the baby estimated weight was 4.5lbs wich puts her 1-2weeks ahead for average baby size, but I don't have average sized babies so were not too shocked. Everything looked good with her, and they will be checking her size again on January 10th. I haven't gotten any Christmas baking done hopefully next week I can. I will post some new pics soon.

New post finally!

Well I'm finally posting an update and some pics. I went in to see my CNM on Thursday, and I got the medication I needed for my itching. So far the itching has gotten better, but not totally gone. After my CNM and I were talking over what was going on I reminded her of the medicine I took last time. She went to check my records and figure out how much I needed. When she was on the computer she looked at my blood work from when I was pregnant with sweetpea. She called me over to see, and we both had forgotten it wasn't my bile salts that were elavated it was my LFT's. It turned out that they had not check my LFT's yet so I had to have my blood drawn again. They will probably let me know next week how that turned out. My next appt. is Dec. 13th and I will be having another ultrasound to check the babies size, and to check on the umbillical cyst. I will update on that later. Here are some pics from November you might enjoy.

Just a little update!

I hope you all had a fun Holiday weekend. As usual we enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal. I was up at 3:30am the next day to do some shopping. I got to WalMart a little after 4:00am, and found a great spot in line at my favorite location (the automotive entry). It was a mad house once I got inside, but I got some good deals there and at a few other stores. We got a tree up this weekend, and the kids were really excited. My hubby also put some lights up outside on Sunday.

Unfortunately I started having anoying itching again like I had when I was pregnant with Sweetpea. It is a nasty itch all over without a rash. Last time the dr. found out it was caused by my liver not functioning properly. I went to the Dr. last Tuesday to have my blood drawn, they wanted to check out my liver funstion again. I still haven't heard back from the CNM yet she is supposed to call me tommorow. Hopefully she will, and I can get on the right meds again before I itch myself to death :(

Anyways I will update you all futher and post some new pics later this week.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you will all have a blessed time with family and friends.

Here is Abraham Lincoln's Thanksgiving Day proclamation for you to enjoy:

Abraham Lincoln's Thanksgiving Day Proclamation
The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.
In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle, or the ship; the axe had enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years, with large increase of freedom.

No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.

A. Lincoln

Our dryer broke a couple of weeks ago, and we decided to get a new set becasue we are sick of old ones. In the 5 years we've been married we have gone through 3 dryers and 4 washers :( Anyways hopefully these ones will last awhile. Also they are supposd to use alot less water and energy so that's cool. Here is a picture for your enjoyment. I was also really excited that they can be stacked so they take up alot less space.

Links and other stuff!

Well I've had a really busy week and haven't had time to post anything. I had my glucose screening done on Thursday, and ended up being at the Dr.s office for 2.5 hrs. The Dr. and my CNM were both called to a birth. Luckily the kids were with my mom. Other than that we are all doing fine. Here are a few links you might find interesting:

Sweetpea is 2

Well our little girl turned 2 yesterday. She is getting so big ;( We gave her a play kitchen yesterday for her present and she loved it. I will have to get a pic of her with it. I took her to her 2 year check today she now weighs 34lbs and is 37in. The Dr. asked me a bunch of development questions, and said she was developmentally advanced for her age. He also confirmed that she is most likely left handed just like daddy. It was really neat today because she wasn't scared of the Dr. at all and co-operated with him.
