I celebrated my 29th birthday last weekend! All of my side of the family came to my house and we had a great time. I think we had about 15 people over. I had a wonderful time and enjoy the day, especially because I had the greatest gift of all...CARSON and my wonderful HUBBY!!! My birthday wish that I asked for over and over the past few years finally came true. I can remember wishing so hard that everything would work out and it did... I could not be happier! I am truly blessed by so my things!
Goal for my 30th birthday...get back to my wedding skinny body!!!!! And I have a long way to go but I am going to do it!!!
Well, I think I am going to start from 2 months old and continue to blog from here. I am sooo impressed that all of you new moms that are able to blog with newborns!!!!
Yesterday Carson turn 2 months old and had to get his shots. He did so good. And yes it was hard to watch and I give children and babies shots at work all the time. Below is the picture of him before the shots, waiting for Dr. Sastry to come see him!
*He is still nursing 6-8 a day and does take bottles of breast milk as needed when we are out and about. *He was just started on prevacid for his reflux, last night was the first night to take the medication and I am still waiting for see if it works for him...(it better because it cost $143 with insurance!!!) *He eats about 4-5 oz from the bottle and at about 10pm he has a bottle with rice to help with the reflux...and that is helping alot! Whenever he has a bottle we put a little rice in it to thicken the milk! *He takes a morning nap anytime in between 8 or 9 for usually about 2-3 hours, an afternoon nap for about 2 hours and cat naps off and on in the early evening! Currently he is going to bed in between 8 -11. Sometimes sleeping starting at 8 then wakes up around 11 eats well and sleeps anywhere from 3-6am. If he does wake up he eats on goes right back to sleep. * He is the swaddle KING!!! The only way he will sleep is swaddled if in his crib. In the swing, he will sleep without it. * He moved from the bassinet to the crib last week because he kept moving to the end of the bassinet and waking himself up. He is sleeping much better in his crib!! And I feel comfortable with him in the crib because his room is next door to mine! *Wearing size 2 diapers * Wearing 0-3 months and 3 month clothes!! * Is a MORNING BOY! He is in the Best mood in the morning! * Is finding his voice!! Cooing and caaing.... so happy, and I just want to eat him up! * Loves bath time! * Loves playing under his playplace for a while...like 20-40 minutes and does tummy time for about 5 minutes due to spitting up. * Took a road trip to Corpus Cristi to get visit the place were Majek boats are built...so Daddy could get stuff for his boat! You did really well!!
Happy 2 month Birthday to you!!!!
Your Daddy and I cannot wait to see what you do this month!
Carson Deen Sunday arrived into the world on June 11, 2010 at 6:25 pm. Weighting 9 lbs exactly and 21 inches long! He is a big boy and is doing great!!!
Sorry it has taken this long to post picture and start blogging, but I am learning how to take care of a newborn beautiful baby, keep a house somewhat clean...and on top of that BLOG!!! I am impressed about all of you Mommy's out there...and blogging. I did try about 3 times to post but the picture would not upload. And it still will only let me upload this one picture...IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!
Carson is wonderful today he is already 3 1/2 weeks old. And I will definitely post more pictures for the past holidays and doctors stats!!
Tonight was our last date as a family of 2. Tomorrow Dr. Klein is inducing me at 7:30 in the morning. We went to one of our favorite restaurants...PAPPASITO'S!!! I love it and I got my Mexican food fix! So we will be getting up bright and early to head to the hospital. I hope my induction goes well... I am very nervous that it could lead to a c-section, but I am continuing to pray that all goes well for Carson and me. Kyle and I will keep everyone up to date! We are sooooo excited to meet our little miracle baby. Cannot believe after 2 1/2 years of trying, the day has finally come. I thank God everyday!
Well, I am 2 days past my due date and really nothing is happening. Yes, I do feel contractions, but they are only about 4-6 an hour, yes-I have been walking like crazy, yes -I have eaten spicy food and fresh pineapple, and yes-I have done the "deed"..hehe.
On Wednesday, when Kyle and I went to the Dr. Klein, he said that I was 1cm dilated and 70-80% effaced. He said that if I was not in labor by June 10th he would induce me. So, that same day my friend who is an L & D nurse at the hospital where I will deliver ask Dr. Klein, "So, are you going to induce Andrea soon" and his response was..."Not with that cervix." hehe Dr. Klein....So I am nesting...I guess you could say. I have organized my laundry room and 4 cabinets in my kitchen....I made room for all of Carons's bottles, spoons, forks, knives, bowls and anything else kitchen related. Now I am going to attack the hall closet, I started last night but have not finished. I am also going to bake cookies for the nurse at the hospital...because I am sure I am going to be a bad patient...(nurse make the worse patients) and also make snacks for Kyle and our family while they are waiting for Carson to make his grand entrance.
We are going to look at cars tonight with my mother-in-law. She is here also waiting for Carson to come (she lives 5 hours away). She is in the market....so what a better way to walk!! I will keep you up-to date on "Has she gone into labor yet!" process. Enjoy your Saturday, I am going to go finish nesting.
Well, today I am 39 days and 5 days. At about 5am this morning I woke up needing to peep like always and then when I went to lay back down... I think I had a contraction. Well, then they started to continue, about every 20-30 minutes lasting about 10-20 seconds and then increased to 9-20 minutes and lasting anywhere from 10-30 seconds. This continues until 10:13 this morning. I was getting sick to my stomach and everything. I thought here we go!!! I was a little excited and getting extremely nervous. But everything has stopped, but I still feel sick to my stomach. So that is my progress for the day. I go to Dr. Klein in the morning....I am hoping for some progress....I am sooooo tired of being pregnant, and Kyle and I are just dying to meet Carson.
Well, I think I am HUGE!!! But I went shopping this weekend and people kept saying, you are so small....WHATEVER is all I can say to that.
I went to the doctor last Wednesday and I was only dilated a "finger tip." Then Dr. Klein informed me I was his "Most Pregnant Patient" and that he was going out of town for the holiday weekend. Thank goodness it is Monday and he is back, just in case I go into labor. If nothing happens tonight or tomorrow, I will see Dr. Klein on Wednesday! I am due in Thursday so we will see what happens. I will keep you updated!
I am 28 and married to my best friend and wonderful man, Kyle. We have been married for 4 years. We have been wanting a family for quite sometime, but for 2 1/2 years the stars were not alined perfectly. After 2 1/2 years of trying on our own and infertility treatments, IVF worked on the 1st time! We are going to welcome our wonderful bundle of joy to the world around June 3rd! So I originally started the blog to help with my frustrations of not being able to get pregnant and now it is going to be one of the ways I document our child's life!
