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.

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.
What I love about this “new pool” is that it keeps the kids entertained. There is a scorpion that dumps and sprays water that is off to one...
