This week in bullet points

Friday, February 15, 2013

It's been an eventful week.

- I am now 28 weeks along in my pregnancy

- That means that I'm officially in my 3rd trimester.

- Baby kicks so hard, I think he might be trying to escape.

- I am still under 9 lbs gained.

- Baby definitely has his own personality, even before he's born. I can't believe how close we are now.

- An extended family gathering reminded me how much body image issues can permeate healthy relationships. No matter how healthy your body is, someone's gonna have a problem with it!

- I ate too much ice cream.

- Doctors found abnormalities in hubby's blood signifying something incredibly life threatening on Tuesday.

- He stayed three days in hospital.

- Stress had me- the thought of losing him was more than I can bear.

- Family stepped up and supported and loved me 100%. I have never felt more blessed.

- I was able to work comp to be able to stay by his side during daylight hours- even ignored visiting hours.

- Life threatening fears absolved by test results. Hubby's got something wrong, but it's not life threatening.

- The pursuit of a diagnosis continues- but with the hope that we are closer than before.

- The hospital he was booked in at is the same one I changed my delivery from. BEST CHOICE OF MY LIFE. We had a TERRIBLE experience from the administration to the "policies" and especially getting information from the staff. For 30 hours, we sat in fear that he was in life threatening danger. The doctor came in and said "the trouble's not in your lungs/heart" and explained in less than 30 seconds that the test results came back clear that morning. He refused to answer our questions and was completely rude to me for being there with my husband.

- Hubby was home on Valentine's day morning.

- The evening was spent making pizza, cuddling and being grateful.

- Hubby is ready to lose a bit of weight. It's my turn to be supportive - he always supported my loss, so now it's my turn.

- Today I ate the best soup of my year. It's time to start cooking soups again!

- Tomorrow I am seeing my midwife again. So excited to hear baby's heartbeat. Because things were so stressful this week, I'm terrified I've hurt the little guy. It will put my mind at ease to know that he's healthy and growing.

- I have finally completed my stash of cloth diapers. This brings me endless amounts of joy. I have always wanted to cloth diaper. I grew up in Oregon so I had the whole "green washing" before it was cool to be eco friendly. And I love that cloth diapers keep chemicals out of my home and off my little one. Plus, um, they are ADORABLE! *sigh*.

- Life is good. Life is precious. Life is so very fragile.

    Thank you so much for the update. I loved seeing your profile picture change to show your view of your feet, with the little one "photo bombing" your picture, so to speak! (LOL!)

So glad to hear hubby is back home, and I certainly hope you two get some definitive answers soon.

    I am so glad that your hubby is doing better. Blessing for your family and family-to-be. True, there is nothing like using cloth on your little one. I used them on all 4 of mine.

    I'm so sorry to hear about hubby but I am so glad he is home with you. I hope you get your answers soon, but at the very least knowing it is non life threatening is a huge relief and I'm glad you got that answer. I am so sorry about the horrible way you were treated there, and I am so glad you changed it so you don't have to deal with that ridiculousness when Baby Boops gets here.

I am so excited that everything else seems to be going pretty well and that you and hubby were able to snuggle up on Valentine's day. emoticon

    That really was an eventful week! How scary for you and hubby to think his life was in danger and how horrible that no one at the hospital reassured you sooner that he was clear. I'm so happy for you two that you decided to go with the midwife to bring in Baby Boops to the world. If you had any doubts that you were making the right decision, I imagine they are completely gone!

I'm excited for you to meet with your midwife tomorrow! You and hubby deserve that peace of mind and to know that Baby Boops is safe.

    You have been blessed from the start! I will keep you all in prayer as your hubby goes thru what he must and as your precious baby boy completes his preparation to join us in the outer, physical world! I am sorry for the Dr.'s curtness, the staff's rudeness and the unknown info. that you and dear hubby needed as he was, holding your hand no doubt, awaiting the final results of his tests! Again, you are in prayer. The cloth diapers? emoticon I was diapered by them, and would use them if I were diapering...Congrats mom and dad! emoticon
