Here’s an update from this crazy week with very few pictures (sorry):
- Tuesday I took E to see the pediatrician to talk about his constipation. We had a very nice talk about diet and how to manage constipation. I learned things that I want to try too! The doctor recommended we eliminate all cheese and rice from E’s diet and do a “cleanse” (he told me to buy the smallest bottle of Miralax and add it to 32 ounces of Gatorade and have E drink it). We have yet to do this cleanse.
- Friday Joey stayed home from work because I had a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon. I saw the doctor at 2:30 and he said that everything was looking good. I was not dilating. We scheduled a c-section for Monday 3/25. On the way home I cried a little because I wasn’t sure I could be pregnant for 3 more weeks. I was also relieved knowing that if she didn’t come on her own, we had it all scheduled.
- Friday night we went and saw Grandfather play his guitar at one of his Mixed Nuts gigs and then we went to dinner at Outback Steakhouse to celebrate Grandfather’s new job. After dinner I started feeling funny. I thought it was just some Braxton Hicks.
- 5:00AM Saturday morning I was having more “Braxton Hicks”, by 7:00AM I woke Joey up and told him he needed to take me to the hospital, and at 8:35AM I was holding our daughter.
Stay tuned for more about her amazing arrival…
