36 Weeks

Let me just start off by saying this is my least favorite picture (of myself) so far in this pregnancy......however thanks to special appearances by Rocky and Lorin it is also one of my favorites!

Welp, 4 weeks to go!  I found out I was pregnant when I was a little over 4 weeks along.....I can't believe how fast the time has gone.  Last November when I found out I was pregnant, it felt like July would never get here and now it's knocking on the door.

I had an appt. today and I am starting to thin out but not dialating yet. I told Lorin I would be sad if I wasn't dialating and I would be scared if I was so it was kind of a lose lose situation today.  But everything else looks great.  We had a little scare when the Dr thought she turned breech, he thought her little bum, that likes to stick out all the time, was her head.  But after an ultrasound she was right where she should be, her head was just far back and deep in my pelvis.

I am officially feeling "big" but that doesn't mean I'm ok with people telling me I look like I'm going to pop.  That is not ok to say to a pregnant woman!  To me that is a coded way of saying "man your huge".  It's also not ok to ask me how far along I am, and when I say 36 weeks you say, "well you don't look that bad....." Excuse me?  What the H does that mean?  How am I supposed to look??

Sorry, had to throw my two cents in about what is and isn't ok to say to a pregnant woman.....EVER.... Can you tell people are getting on my nerves?  I blame it on the heat!  =D

Anyway...... here are just a few of the many things I am experiencing right now. I feel great and have energy but am super tired by the end of the day, I sleep good at night, which is nice, I've had a few bouts of heartburn but not too bad, I pee 24/7, snack all day because I have no room for large meals, hate clothes and live in Lorin's workout shorts and shirts, and I love to chew on ice (weird I know).

I'll try to update as I progress or the next post could be about a baby.....you will have to stay tuned to find out!

3 sad days

Tues after memorial day Rocky got really sick.  Thank heavens Lorin was home with him at the time and was able to get him to the Vet.  

Let me take a min to give you a little background on Rocky's health.  He has had numerous dental problems, an episode of Giardia (Giardiasis refers to an intestinal infection that is caused by the protozan parasite giardia.) which could have killed him, and last year he had an allergic reaction to his food and he was literally puking all of the time.  Just so happens he has bad luck when it comes to his health.  I'm officially labeling him a special needs dog.

So Tues we got him to the Vet, she did an x-ray and blood work on him, long story short he had Pancreatitis, which if not treated in time can kill dogs.  Luckily we got him there and were able to get an IV in him (he was dehydrated), start some pain meds because pancreatitis causes major abdominal pain, and he had to stay at least 2 days so he could be monitored and cared for constantly.  Lorin called me at work to let me know what was happening and I fell apart.  It doesn't help that I am 8 months preggo but this dog is like our child.  I know some people don't understand but he is part of our family.  So I was a wreck all day and I didn't get to see him that night.  On Wed he was doing better but still needed to stay there.  Lorin and I were able to go visit him that night.  That was hard for me.....he wanted to come home with us so bad and he was not happy when we left him.  Thurs our vet did more blood work and things looked a lot better.  I was able to go get him after work and bring him home.  He has to go back in 2 weeks for a check up but so far he is doing good.  And we are happy to have him home!!

We spent Memorial Day Weekend with Lorin's    family in Benson and had a blast!
