One Mother Rambling Through Life

Rantings, Ravings, Strange thoughts, a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a lot of ME!

So I guess my obsessive tracking of my time left has made some people think I am crazy but you know it makes me feel better as I see the numbers decreasing and increasing as they should since it helps me remember that this fatigue and HB will not last forever. Yay for the end and the new beginning. (Mahalia is currently kicking up a storm on one of my ribs which is good since maybe that means she has flipped out of breach.

Stephen is a champ at this potty training gig so far. Man he is the easiest little boy by far! He asks to go to the potty and he even goes into his room where his potty is takes off his dipe and then lets up know that he went potty every once and awhile. I mean we still have a little way to go on the whole bit and it won't be just this the whole time, but so far he is getting it. He knows that he needs to go and he asks to go. It is an adjustment for me to take him to the potty but it is a welcome adjustment because it means less dipes and eventually none. I am sooo proud of him. He is doing really well. He enjoys the praise and the M&M reward when he is successful. He is such a cutie.

Stephen had his first bigger boo boo on friday but he is fine. he fell at Daycare and hit his head on a cabinet. It looked terrible. He had a big goose egg, bruise, and red line that looked like a scrape but wasn't. I was afraid that he would fall and his his head all weekend because I knew if he hit the same spot he would bust it open and need stitches. I could feel where it almost busted anyway. Thankfully he did not fall again. It looks better daily and looks much better today. He had two blackish eyes on Saturday and a little left today. I was a little nervous about him being in the daycare at church because of it and that weird mommy guilt feeling that it happened. But all is good and we have moved past the bigger boo boo. He is actually getting tired of the attention to his boo boo if you belive that. But he has been a great sport all along and Daddy enjoyed their Friday night bonding time (while mommy was out for Girl's Night Out) when Stephen would ask for Daddy to kiss his "fworehead".

I had my OB apt on Wednesday last week and Mahalia was doing well. HB in the 150's. I went over my list of unhappy symptoms and got some feedback and a list of OTC's to try to help the current situation. later my OB called and told me that there were some issues in the Sono I did around 16 weeks that she thought I should know about and that she forgot to mention in the appointment. They did not get a good shot of her heart which this was at 16 weeks so most of the shots I rememeber were difficult because so far anytime anyone tries to get Mahalia to cooperate with scans has had to work at it. And there was also not a good shot of the spine. The OB is not worried about it at this point but they will do another sono soon to look at those things. Also my placenta was low and that worries them since up to this point had I called about spotting and bleeding they would have dismissed it a bit as long as it was not heavy and accompanied with cramping/pain but with a low placenta it could be a lot more serious. That is also something that will be looked at in the next sono. Soooo I will have another sono at some point soon which is either 2 - 4 wks. I have my next apt on the 10th which is 2 wks from my last so I am not sure if it will happen then or not. I know that my dreaded sugar test will be at my next apt. Drinking the yucky glucose stuff waiting for an hour and then testing the sugar levels. FYI to self no excessive sugar that morning at breakfast or lunch. I am hoping for another sono sooner rather than later to know all is well but I also hope that this sono does not take the place of the sono that is generally later in the pregnancy. Oh well.

Girl's Night Out AKA GNO is my one night out away from home with friends to relax watch a movie and not worry about responsibility as much. I get GNO every Friday night unless something happens and we arrange ahead of time for a different night. Which is rare. So this is the one night for Stephen and Brad to have bonding time together and they love it generally. There used to be a Boys Night Out on Thursday but some changes in social groups for Brad has changed it to not as standard of a night. It is okay by me. The rule of thumb is that we have to be respectful of one another and return at a decent time unless otherwise discussed. I try to be home at the latest by 11 pm unless we go out to a movie and then I will let Brad know that I will return as soon as the movie lets out. I just think it is nice to be able to show respect to one another when neither one of us sleeps as well when the other is out.
