Life is Good: Day 20 (ish)

I'm still here. I would blog more, but so much of my day is spent sitting at the computer writing I just can't sit here another minute. Okay, so that's not the most uplifting tone. Let's see...

I will have to dedicate this post to my good husband. I know I write about him a lot, but really, he is wonderful! Today, I was absolutely set on not doing my final paper in my Literature class. I just could NOT see my way to the first sentence. So the good man sat down with me and reminded me that if I missed this, I would fail the class. Then he proceeded to write me a thesis statement for the paper, just SOMETHING to get my brain functioning. I wouldn't have made it without his help today. Thank you, Love!

C--Section Update

I agree with all of you completely! The C-Section I had with the twins was a nightmare and I didn't have a baby to care for after. I read more about it last night and it only reminded me how much I DO NOT want a C-Section.

So Leif and I are praying a lot about it and doing all that we can to progress things along. But in the end, I'll have to leave it in the Lords hands.

Life is Good: Day 23 (Or Less)

Well, I just had a great hour with my boys. Leif was working on a deadline project and I asked the boys to help me clean things up. It was just one of those times that I didn't have to fight them much to help. And once we cleaned up, because they helped, I wasn't feeling like a grizzly bear. We gradually moved into reading books together. One for Caleb, one for Jakob, and so on. We sat together and enjoyed each other's company. Then we easily moved into the bedtime routine. It was a refreshing moment. So grateful for times like those! At the very end as we were getting ready to pray Caleb did upset Jakob. After chiding Jakob for being a bit dramatic I did ask Caleb to tell Jakob he was sorry and it was precious to see Caleb go over to Jakob and give him a sincere hug and a kiss. Like I said, priceless!!

So, we went to another Dr appointment today. No progression except that the baby has grown and he is measuring (through ultrasound) head 39+weeks along and legs 38+ weeks along. As you can see from my ticker, technically, this baby is only supposed to be 36+ weeks along. So, it looks like I might have to make some decisions soon. The Dr, along with Leif and I, are not so sure that my body is up to the challenge of delivering a very large baby. Jakob and Caleb were 7+ pounds. Caleb was wedged in there (or something) but after pushing for a long long time, they had the use the baby vacuum to help suction him out. So a possible 8-9 pounder is a concern.

Dr. says to come in on Monday, if I haven't progressed to a point where he can use pitocin to start labor, then we might consider a C-section for a few days later. It's a bitter-sweet thought. I REALLY REALLY didn't want a C-section! But the thought of holding this little guy sooner then later, sounds VERY VERY enticing! So we'll see what happens. Leading up to that, can you guess what I'll be doing? You got it, HOMEWORK! Blah. Tonight though, I'm just going to feel the good vibes from the mama time I had with my boys... Sounds Good!

Life is Good: Day 24

I'm still here. I'm just Very Tired, especially by the end of the day. I'm going to post now because I know I won't want to tonight.

I finally got the boys outside. Today is Leif's homework day. So it also means movie day for the boys. There is no entertaining or patience left in this mama. So thank you Netflix!! But, I did get them to go outside and I will take a minute to blog.

So life is a balancing act between baby prep, taking care of the house and kids, enduring pregnancy blah, and homework. I have never resented college homework so much. It would help if I liked my literature professor's way of doing things. Leif reminded me the other day that it's not her I don't like, it's her class. He got that from his current conflict management class;) Anyway, I have a lot of homework and All I want to do is waddle around and TRY to get things done. It's all coming along slowly. However, I'm really not sure how the dishes are going to get done before the baby. Leif' has just as much homework, and seriously, my belly doesn't allow me to reach the sink far enough or long enough to get them done. Luckily there's not too many and we'll work it out.

There really is a lot I could blog about. But I'm just too darn uncomfortable sitting here. So, let's just say that I wouldn't be too surprised if I actually went into real labor with this baby (I've been induced with all the others.) And if I don't give birth within the next two weeks, I might be surprised. Although I joke that it would just be my luck if I go to the due date. Good heavens my tummy will be huge!!! Seriously! Is there room in there for him?

That is the question... I need to go lay down.
