Ultra Sound Pictures!

Here are a couple of Ultasound pictures of Lily. She was hiding so they couldn't get one of her face. The good news is that her heart is looking really good. The bad news is they think she might have a Club foot. The doctor told me it could have been the way she was laying because I am so far along. (Clubfoot is a birth defect that causes a newborn baby's feet to point down and inward. While clubfoot does not cause pain, it can cause long-term problems, affecting the child's ability to walk. However, if clubfoot is properly treated, the clubfoot deformity can often be cured in early childhood.) The only way to tell for sure is when I deliver her. I just hope all is well.

Oh my Trochanteric Bursitis

Well it's been something different with every pregnancy right. Well this time it's my hip. It started a couple of months ago. As many of you know my health as not been super fantastic this pregnancy. And I have spent a lot of time in bed. What do you sleep on when you are pregnant? You ask. My hips. And the damage oh the damage.

I don't really think that the fact that I've been busting my butt to try and get my house cleaning done has helped in the least. Last night was agonizing to say the least. I could barley walk. I felt like a 90 year old women trying to get up and make it to the bathroom before my bladder exploded.

I just keep thinking that a couple of more weeks and maybe this pain will subside. Giving birth I know for me is such and amazing thing. I get my body back. I'm really looking forward to that this time.

I shouldn't complain I feel so blessed that we have been able to have our four beautiful babies. They are all so special to both Camron and I in their own little ways. So I guess I will stop complaining and try and look and the upside of this situation. Only a couple of more weeks to go. Then I will be begging to put her back in so I can sleep through the night again. Oh the vicious cycle we weave.

A little Reminder...

I wanted to post this again. It was one of my first posts when I starting Blogging. But since #4 is almost here. I thought I would remind myself.

Before I was a Mom
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom
I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep. Before I was a Mom
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't Stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom -
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.
Before I was a Mom -
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the
satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.

This week hasn't gone according to plan!!


Hello all. My last post I was talking about how excited I was to attack my house cleaning this week. SOOOO EXCITED!! hehe:) Anyway as many of you know Reese came home sick last Wednesday with a sore throat and stomach ache.

My OB appointment was last Thursday and my doctor told me to make sure to get Reese tested for the Flu. So off to the Doctor we went. The test was negative. But all the symptoms matched the flu. The doctor told me to keep him home till he could keep his temp down below 100 degrees without medication for 24 hours. So he didn't go back to school till Monday.

Sunday Camron and Daylen came down with it. My sweet husband who has no immune system at all. Catches everything the kids bring home. He was soooo sick. I felt sooo bad for him. He stayed home from work Monday and Tuesday. Daylen didn't get it as bad and stayed home only one day on Monday.

Luckily I have the most wonderful In-Laws in the whole world and they have taken Mason so he doesn't come down with it. I think I have had a light case of it but not to bad. But the point is that I haven't done anymore house cleaning. I'm getting really stressed about it. Because before I know it. Lily will be here. Hopefully things will start to get better and we can get everything done in time.

We bought Mason a mattress to go on the bunk bed in Reese's room. We are going to get him a dresser and move him in with Reese so we can get started on Lily's room. I'm so excited to get her room going. Here is a preview of what it will look like.

We are so excited. We are painting her walls pink and I was able to get the wall hangings and curtains that go with it. Camron is repainting the crib and changing table to a dark brown. He is already starting to spoil her. She isn't even here and he's already wrapped around her finger. It's so cute!! Hopefully Mason can come home tomorrow and I can get some cleaning and disinfecting done so I can start back on my house cleaning next week. I'm so grateful for all of the people in my life that care about us so much. Thank you Rob and Trudy for helping us with Mason. We miss him soooo much but we are so glad he doesn't have to get this yucky stuff we have all had. I pray that Camron can get over this without his Chrone's interfering. So far he hasn't had any problems with his chrone's from this. Daylen has been the least sick and I'm also thankful for that. I hate to see my kids so miserable. It breaks my heart.

Update: While I was writing this Trudy called me and told me that Mason has diarrhea really bad. She wants to keep him but is really stressed he might get dehydrated. I'm not sure if they will have him come home yet because we are all still sick. Hopefully he's not getting what we've all had. I'm hoping it's just from not being home that is causing it. They are going to the store to get some Imodium AD and Destine for his bum. I just hope he feels better soon. I'm not sure how I feel about him not being with me when he's sick. But with me also being sick it might be for the best. I miss him so much. I don't like being away from him especially this long. But I'm still very grateful for Rob and Trudy. They are the best and are so good with him.

It's official nesting has started. I've spent 7 hours today in my kitchen house cleaning. I took all the decorations off my kitchen cabinets and cleaned them. Wiped every nick and cranny. Pulled the fridge out and cleaned underneath that. Pulled everything out of my cupboards and wiped everything down. I'm done but now I have to start on the rest of the house. It's going to be a long week. I just hope I can get everything done before I kill myself in the process.
