So, I've been MIA. (obviously)
Remember how I said I wanted the fact that I wasn't on here to be because I was at work and not home sick? (or something to that effect, anyway).
Yeah. This pregnancy took its toll on me almost identically to the way my pregnancy with Landon went! So, I ended up quitting my job back in February to stay home (and be sick). I only had to go to the ER once this time around, and was admitted a few days later just for an overnight stay. I ended up losing 46 lbs with this kiddo -- trying to compete with the 47 I lost with Landon. NOT FUN.
Thankfully, I have been feeling much better for a while. I'm able to eat again, I'm gaining weight again (though trying not to overdo it like last time!!!), and I am really excited about this baby coming in September. I'll admit, those first few months, it was hard to be very excited. I despise being sick! But, back to being excited. I'm super ecstatic, though a little terrified at the same time. I'll be having a C-section with this baby, and the thought of a very competent doctor coming at me to cut me open and remove my baby scares the you-know-what out of me. Is that irrational? I'd say Yes. C-sections are so common now; routine procedures that doctors perform all the time. But I'm human. I don't even like getting shots or having blood drawn, because it involves someone sticking me with something sharp. But... I'll survive. :)
Oh, so, for those of you not privy to all the posts I make on FaceBook - this baby (drumroll please.....) another BOY! His name will be Jacob Aaron. And he is due to arrive sometime around Sept. 19th. Since it is a C-section, we will have some control over his birthday - but haven't scheduled anything with the doctor or the hospital yet.
In other news, we just bought a house! We moved in this past weekend, and I have been alternating unloading boxes and resting. I still get tired pretty easy, so I feel like this process is going sooooo sloooow! Once the house is in "order" I'll have to post some pictures of it. Landon is getting used to his new room, and it only took him a few days to understand that this is now "home." The first few days, he would keep asking to go home at bedtime. I made it my priority to put his room together first (minus his wall décor, cause we haven't decided what will go in his room and what will go in Jacob's yet). He is now okay with going to the "new house" when we leave daycare.
He also likes (most days) to get home and see "Reese Puppy!" Reese is the chocolate lab puppy that we got a few weeks ago. I've never had a dog really, so she is taking some getting used to for me...but we love her! She is a really good puppy, for the most part. She does wake up earlier than I'd like, but she's getting better about whining during the night. She is very playful, and the cutest little thing. She's funny though, cause her favorite place to be is right under your feet while you are walking. I've stepped on the poor thing more times than I can count because she runs right under me. As Landon says: "Silly Reese Puppy!"
Anywho, there are still gobs of boxes to be unpacked, so I better get back to it. This place is really starting to look like home!
