2 months old!!!

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!

Here is what Carson has been up to!

Weight - 12lbs 4oz - 50th percentile
Height - 23 inches - 40th percentile
FOC - 41cm

*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 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 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!

Date Night

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!

2 days past...

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 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.

What's going on????

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.

39 Week Picture

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!

Carson's Nursery!

Carson's room has been completed for about 3 weeks now, so I am sorry for just now posting pictures. His room is call "Jungle Friends" and I hope y'all enjoy the pictures!

Dresser and Hutch - I love it because it lights up!

My art project for his room!

Jungle theme! And the "C" plaque in the center was a gift that my friend Hayley made for me! She sells them if anyone is interested!

37 week doctors appointment!!!

Well, I went to the doctor yesterday for my 37 week check up, and once again, just like last week Dr. Klein called me a...."GREEN BANANA"....and for those who don't know what that is....well, I am not "ripe", not dilated, nor has Carson started his journey down, so that Kyle and I can meet him. I guess he just likes being close to his Momma! And I thought that I would have made a little progress, because last weekend was our 5th wedding anniversary, and we walk all weekend on the San Antonio Riverwalk and in Fredsrickburg. We had the best time and I got a BEAUTIFUL right handed ring from my sweet and wonderful hubby!!! I also started swimming....and still no progress!!!

So I am hoping next week Carson might show us a little sign that he might want to meet us! I will be saying my prayers for some progress!!! I will keep y'all updated and pictures to come of the nursery and my belly!

32 week ultrasound!

Here are a few picture of our little angels face taken about 3 weeks ago. Dr. Klein says Carson is in the 81%. I was a little nervous about how big Carson is but Dr. Klein told me the ultrasound tech tends to measure on the larger side. Therefore, I am keeping my finger crossed on his size. His room is almost ready!!! All we need to do is finish the window treatments! It is coming together so well! I cannot wait.

Check out this Belly

About 3 weeks ago my wonderful friend Ashley took maternity photos for me and Kyle. I think Ashley should quit her job and do photography full time. She always has so many wonderful ideas and is so much fun! In these pictures I am 32 weeks 3 days pregnant!

15 weeks to GO!!!!

Well, today I am 25 weeks...I cannot believe how fast my pregnancy is going. Last week we went for other ultrasound, because on our 18 week ultrasound the placenta was not visualized well. So we got the see CARSON again!!! It is so much fun seeing him on the flat screen! We got some of his stat and I am still in SHOCK!!!

Carson's head is already 6 cm, he weights 1 lb 12 oz and is measuring 9 days early! What a BIG BOY!!! I am still due on June 3rd and everything is progressing very well. I was a little worried about how big he already is but Dr. Klein said some women are on the 6 pound baby track and some are on the 10 pound track...well guess which one I am are right, the 10 POUND TRACK!!!! I think I am getting nervous about how big he is because of gestational diabetes. But I was 9lb 4oz at birth and my momma did not have we will see! I am keeping my fingers crossed that do not have gestational diabetes. In 3 weeks I will be doing my glucose tolerance testing... oh what fun....drinking pure sugar!!!

More pictures of the belly bump and room construction coming soon!!

You wanted it you got it!!!

The Belly Bump!
17 weeks, Christmas Eve

17 weeks and 1 day, Christmas Day! Kyle is playing with our new camera.

About 19 weeks and 2 days. I look awful in this picture!

21 weeks and 5 days

I love this necklace I have on, but it photographs terrible. It is really pretty gold metalic balls, but they glow when the flash hits it.

Today I am 24 weeks and I am going to see Dr. Klein for another ultrasound and check up. Yes, I feel like a cow, but I have started working out again!! I know you might think that I am crazy but, my energy has finally returned and it makes me feel sooooo much better! After working 12 hours shift, I get a little swollen and exercise is helping to promote circulation and decrease the swelling! Thank goodness! I really do not have any food cravings but if I am in the mood for something I want to right then and there.

Quick story....Last night I came home and my WONDERFUL hubby had done 2 loads of laundry and took the sheet off our bed, washed and dryed them! It was sooooo nice, I love sleeping on clean sheet. I wish I had someone who could wash them everyday! And it is 3 less things I have to do today, and it was such a great help! I am so very thankful to have such a nice husband!

FYI - Carson's room is about to be under construction and I am getting very excited about everything coming together. I am still up in the air if I am going to decorate with animals or fish. The bedding has no theme, it is striped, so I can put anything in the room to decorate! I love it! We ordered the furniture this weekend and it should be here in about 3-4 weeks. So I will post pictures soon of construction and the furniture!!

More to come soon!
