Being a parent is exhausting work. Seriously.
So wgat is the most glorious thing for a parent? A child who sleeps! I havent been shy about the fact that Nolan is a vampire in training, often keeping us up all night. However, once we arrived in Japan a funny thing happened… He slept! At night! It was glorious!
So I pushed it further. I put him in his crib. And he slept. And so did we. I didnt realize how much better i sleep without him in bed with us.
So I pushed it even further. We put him in his room. And he slept. But i didnt. I kept waking up to check the baby monitor, then to go into his room to make sure the monitor was working. Then I would lay there waiting for him to cry. Im hoping tonight goes better.
I never thought that transitioning him to his room would be so hard on ME. But its ridiculous. First there are the SIDS fears, then the bonding remorse, and then…gasp…he’s not such a tiny baby anymore. Im not ready for him to grow up. And this feels like such a big milestone.
Next thing I know he will be 5 and starting school, 16 and driving, 18 and off to college, or older and getting married….Im not ready!!! Time needs to slow down.
In the meantime, with the baby sleeping before us, we are enjoying a little adult time (aka time for Tiffany tk freak out).
What was the hardest milestone for you?
How far along? 30 weeks And 1 day
Bedrest so far: 10 weeks ( But now on Modified bedrest, with a little bit of a longer leash!)
Total weight gain/loss: 11 lbs so far…..
Maternity clothes?: All maternity all the time. And now nursing bra’s pretty much exclusively. Lets not mention the ENORMOUS size. (The cup may be capable of being worn as a swim cap)
Stretch marks? No change from last week. Im gonna look like a deflated baloon when NoNo is born.
Labor signs: BHC are still pretty much happening hourly. Some of them are way more painful then others.
Medications?: Prenatals and zantac and lots and lots of tums!!
Sleep: Need more sleep every day. Still needing a nap every afternoon just to be able to stay awake to through dinner. Its sad.
Best moment this week: 3D/4D ultrasound! And passing my gestational diabetes test!
Worst Moment this week: Feeling overwhelmed, and more weepy than usual.
Movement: He has slowed down his movement. I will be talking to the doctor about this.
Food cravings/aversions: I was really into this Itallian deli this week. I ate there like 4 times in one week!
Belly Button in or out?: Still an innie…with a hole as big as the moon!
Gender: All boy and I have 3D images to prove it!
What I miss: My husband, being able to bend over, sleeping through the night, feeling sane, and being able to only use the bathroom every couple of hours!
What I am looking forward to: Achieving week 32! The next big milestone!
Weekly Wisdom: You can NEVER drink too much water. And if you are trying to think of something to do…drink some more water!
Milestones: Uh….nearly full lung development? Over 90% viability. Less than 7 weeks until “Term”.
Symptoms: No appetite, feeling very very overheated all the time, grumpy and lots of heart burn.
And I know he loves me, but I think that in this picture he is clearly telling me to stop clicking pictures of him.
It seems to be the standard operating procedure that when he is home, I shoot WAAAAAAY too many pictures of him. And I know it starts to make him crazy, but gosh he’s cute!!
Happy Father’s Day Honey! (Its a day ahead where he is) Thank you for being such an awesome Daddy to your boys!
I love you!
Yes, pairing adorable maternity shirt with green monkey pajama bottoms is acceptable while on bedrest. And since I can no longer see over my ginormo-boobs and definitly cant see my legs or feet, so the fact it doesnt match doesnt bother me.
What you cant see is that my socks are also two different colors. Again, since I cant see them it doesnt matter.
And just because I am all about true and fair documentation, I felt the need to show everyone the amazing style that occurs when you have no where to go.
Face it, this is bedrest in the Tiffany Household.
But atleast I showered!
20 weeks and beautiful….oh my little baby you have stolen my heart!
Sometimes the first morning pictures are far from flattering, but they capture the love in our eyes! I miss him so much!!
Only a couple more days till he comes home!
Today my baby sister turns 19! I can barely believe it. I remember 19 years ago coming to the hospital to visit her for the first time, and I knew then that my life would be changed forever.
It has been so interesting watching her grow and change. And I have to say that I love the relationship that we have right now.
TO my Little Bratty Sister,
Happy Birthday! I love you and I am so glad that your survived all those little attempts I made to send you back! I couldnt imagine my life without you in it. THank you for being my first kiddo, and letting me screw you up (it saves my kids!) I cant wait to see all the big changes you are going to make this year!
Happy 19th! I hope it is the best year yet and that all your wishes come true!
Your Big Evil Sister
Dont be embarassed if you cant see it, I had to be educated and now I see a bubble.
Last night I had some unusual bleed and cramping and was worried that something was wrong, so off to the ER we went. I am fully aware that there would be nothing that they could do if there was something wrong, but I needed to know one way or the other.
I got to the ER and was fully prepared for a long wait, but things went smoothly. After blood work and an ultrasound they sent me home as “Threatened Miscarriage”. My Hcg was 11,451. The ultrasound did show a little blood in my uterus, so I am hoping that it is nothing to be worried about.
The tech was phenomenal! She was able to visualize the gestational sac and a yolk sac. She did not see a fetal pole or heartbeat but said that it may just be a couple days early.
All in all, its just a wait and see game. Grow baby Grow. I have a follow up ultrasound (my original ultrasound) is on Wednesday. So hopefully we will have a heart beat then and my chances of this babies survival will go from 50-50 to 70-90% chance.
When was your first ultrasound? And what did you see?
After spending 11 days at sea and loving the waves rolling back and forth, I am having some difficulty re-integrating into the regular land.
The Hubby swears that I will get my land legs back soon, I cant wait!
The cruise was so much fun, and if it werent for the BIG MOVE coming up then we would have booked another one. I strongly suggest a cruise, strongly!
This was on the beach at Cabo San Lucas….I miss it already!
With as often as I whip out my Nikkon D40, the kids are starting to think I am a photographer! Some of them have even gotten quicker than me! I think that this little guy was done posing for my pictures and was tired of the camera snapping pictures of every adorable thing that he did!
Kids are so much fun to take pictures of. If I stand really quietly with the camera, I get some of the sweetest pictures of them! I am hoping to be able to get some of the pictures printed for the parents of these munchkins!
I am so thankful for my camera! I have thousands of pictures that I have taken and they all look so darn beautiful!
What type of camera do you use?
