Well, Wednesday we headed to the specialist. I still have not gained one pound which isnt bothering me one bit, my belly is definitely growing and baby is growing, so as long as it isnt taking away from my butt or my legs lol im okay with any fat loss. Baby grew three weeks worth of growing in three weeks so that means the placenta is working still and they checked the pressure of the umbilical cord and it is good. Specialist will see me again in three weeks. Feels that I should be able to make it to 37-38 weeks so that is good.
Baby was very active, like he usually is. Which is a good thing.
So I'm back to being on rest but not like bed rest....
Braden is loving Pre-K, he is getting annoyed with some little boy in class that keeps getting in trouble for talking. Which cracks me up. He was so distraught over it yesterday he didnt want to go back to school today. Had Brant take him to school this morning and he REFUSED to let Brant walk him into school. He said he could do it himself. Seriously he is 4 going on 10. Oh well I guess the reverse would be unbearable. He definitely has the traits of an Oldest sibling.
We stopped in Bartlesville lastnight on our way home, we were tickled to find a home that seemed from the outside to have everything we wanted, and a few bonuses. But low and behold the inside was ODD and would need work; potential yes... but some of the structural issues we have no idea what kind of can of worms that might be to fix and leaving them alone would annoy brant alot. So, even though it was almost there, still not there. We know the right place with the right stuff will come along one of these days, just hopefully before lol June.
Braden woke up this morning and was so excited about going to Pre-K. I couldnt of been more pleased with how he behaved. Good attitude, silly attitude. He told me how proud he was of me lol for his lunch. (Which they didn't look for in his locker so he ate hot lunch - but is currently sitting at the table wanting to eat his lunch) I think Parker was happy for his Brother. Such handsome lil boys I have. Our car ride of course got interrupted by a policeman, daddy got a warning. Didnt slow down fast enough. DORK. I was trying to get him to smile but silly faces is what I got. I kinda felt like this though. He was so Happy. He went right to a place and sat down to play with Play dough, no tears, no whimpers, barely got a hug and kiss out of the child, he was happy as punch. How about that, my child that rarely will take a nap, laid down and took a short nap.
WOOOHOOO We all did it! One day of school down, how many to go?
Braden starts Pre-K this Thursday. We met Mrs Lively tonight, I'm positive Braden will just love her. I'm so excited for him. I'm not sure how excited he is, he was alittle over whelmed, but I'm pretty sure he will LOVE it.
Well, no photos, but an update. Went to the specialist on Friday, baby is behind again, about 3 oz's smaller then they would like to see. Placenta is rapidly aging. They are concerned. So they have put me on rest. Dont want me exerting alot of energy. Today I called to see what they are concerned about, placenta separating? preterm labor? None of the above. They feel that it is critical to get the baby everything as possible for him to grow properly and if I over do or dont eat enough or stress out my body will use it and the placenta that is already struggling will pass through less.
PLUS, I start twice a week non stress tests and one ultrasound watching the blood flow from the placenta to the baby, each week till they decide the baby needs to be born. So, we might have baby sooner then we thought.
If I get through this week I'll be golden. Braden hopefully will be starting Pre-K next week!!!! Baring no room at enrollment tomorrow. (Keep your fingers crossed). I think I can do this with one kid. But two when your not supposed to do much has been horrible.
Not to mention an unforeseen complication with my car on saturday on a road trip to Elk. GRRRR when it rains it pours!
