1st Update

So, its been a couple of weeks... but waiting for something to progress so I would have something to really talk about. Instead, I'm talking about lack of progression which is very frustrating. I don't remember having this problem with Jeremy, but that was 15 years ago and how well did I really pay attention at 19?? So I went in for my 36 week appointment last week, and she couldn't find my cervix. HUH? Well, as much as my stomach has dropped, I guess he hasn't dropped into the "right" place for her to feel how dilated I am or if I am thinning or not. She took me into another room where she has her small sonogram machine(I think its from the 80's). She wanted to make sure he was head down, he was and she was satisfied with that. So, I left that appointment a little disappointed that I had no new news and nothing was happening.

I had my 37 week appointment yesterday and still, her petite, small hands couldn't reach my cervix. Nice. This time though, she seems a little more concerned and has them schedule me for an ultrasound to determine lil Brennan's weight and presentation. And no Keeley, its not animated nor is it powerpoint. For those who don't know, presentation in baby terms means is his head down and where he is supposed to be. Now me, I know he is head down! Hiccups in my pelvis and foot in my right ribs. But, the weight.... now that is what has me concerned!! Once he hits the 9 pound mark, they are knockin me out and slicin me open!
So anyway, my next appointment is March 4th at 11:30 cst and he had better be in position and not over 8 pounds otherwise he will have a very unhappy mother when he arrives!

Something New

Well, this will be a new experience. Everyone knows I like to talk.. well A LOT. So, how better to communicate with everyone scattered around the USA but to put it all in print. I know we all have Facebook and Myspace, but really, how much can you write on there?? I am sure I can write a bunch there too.. but do I really want people that I haven't seen or spoken to since High School to see EVERYTHING? Not really. This will be a learning experience.. as I want to learn how to post pictures and all that in these blogs. With the new addition to our little family unit coming within weeks, I will be posting the fun experiences here. Pictures will still be posted on Facebook and Myspace of course.. but the fun stuff will be here, the little things.

So far, I have 5 weeks until my due date.. which I'm really not liking right now. My mother laughs at me when I say I will be going early. She swears its just my mind and body hoping for an early release of my poor stomach. I've been dreaming lately of my little one.. and in my dreams he is so cute! Maybe that's why.. but I know why, because I was on time with my first.. so logically I should be early with my second right? Hmmm only time will tell. My right wrist is now hurting.. as most of you know, my left one has been hurting for sometime. The doctor says the swelling inside is causing carpel tunnel syndrome type symptoms. So now, I need a brace for the right one too.

Jeremy is settled. Didn't really take him long. He knew what he was in for when he asked to come live with me again. I do random backpack checks, we talk about school everyday when I get home. I'm hoping that his attitude about school and the importance of it have changed some since coming here. He seems to like his school.. I think he is starting to talk to other kids at school.

Well, I think i will let this be it for the first blog.. I am sure I will have more to blog about in the next couple of weeks as my time gets closer and doctor appointments are more frequent.
