A crazy two weeks

It has been an amazing and overwhelming few weeks since I have last written.  Baby A (aka Mudbug) made and early appearance into this world.  I was diagnosed with Pre-eclampsia and rushed to a different hospital.  4 days after going to the hospital for a headache and high BP, mudbug was born via cesarean.   Born at 33weeks, 6 days gestation he was a tiny 4 lbs at birth.  He spent 16 days in the nicu but I am happy to say he is finally home where he belongs.  I'll be taking some time to adjust to being a new mom.  I do want to write about all of this in more detail when I don't have a newborn needing a diaper change.  For now though here is a pic of the little one.

Bump Update #20 - 33 weeks

Bump Update

How far along: 33 weeks, 1 day

Due Date:  August 18, 2013

Baby’s Size:   The baby is somewhere between the size of a pineapple (19in, 4.9lbs) and the size of a Durian Fruit (17.2in, 4.2lbs)

Total weight gain:
   So far I am at a total of 7 pounds total weight gain from my pre pregnancy weight.    

Best Moment this week:  

Food Cravings:  I have been craving fresh fruit, mainly apricots and peaches.  I also have been eating a bunch of cheese.  Odd I know but hey what baby wants baby gets! lol

Food Aversion:  Spicy food.  I have been craving anything with a kick but when I do contractions start and that just isn't good 6 weeks from my due date.  

Labor Pains:  I wrote about this here.  Thankfully my Blood Pressure has gone down and I am trying my best to stay hydrated to keep the contractions from happening. 

Movement:  His movement has become more patterned.  I can just about pinpoint his routine.  He has clear wake and clear asleep patterns. 

Gender:  He's still a boy.

Belly Picture:  I am going to have to update this one but for now check out my instagram for a new pic.

Belly Button in or out:  My belly button in still in!  You have no idea how happy it makes me!

Baby / Parenting Book I am Currently Reading:  I am in the process of trying to figure out how to download library ebooks onto my nook.  If you know how please let me know!!!

Looking forward to: My next appointment is going to be next monday.  It's my final appointment that hubby will be going to.      

This week’s Baby Task:  I need to finish the baby laundry, Pack for the hospital, and find the last minute items I forgot about.  I need to pick up a new laundry rack, some Rockin Green Cloth diaper detergent, Bac out, and deodorizer for the diaper pail.  I also want to pick some eric carle stroller toys. 

Living the Good Life!

The weather has cooled off here and we are loving it!  This has given us time to relax and enjoy time outside without sweating to death.  T...
