well, i'm home alone this weekend. mom and robert are out of town. i hate it. happy day.

i have not been feeling well this week at all -- very dizzy/disoriented, cramping, and mad headaches. so i went to the doctor yesterday...freaking out that something was wrong. i got there and they told me that my blood pressure is dropping. that is causing all this dizziness and such. i was very worried about the baby, so when i heard the heartbeat (after the dr took forever to find it), i completely lost it and cried like a baby! worse than when we saw the baby for the first time on the first ultrasound! but it was just such a relief to hear that and know that my child is fine...and apparently doesn't really care much about how i'm feeling!!! so while he didn't put me on bedrest, he did say that i have to take it very easy. which means that i can't go to the house this weekend and pack and clean. that is so frustrating. but at this point it's more important to keep me and the baby healthy.

so here's to this weekend...alone. unless erin calls telling me she's gone into labor. her appt today brought news of 2 cm, 70% effaced. WOOOHOOOOO!!! andrew should be here soon!!!!!!!

11 weeks - looking kinda scary....

in other news, tonight is our last night in our own home...

Friday, June 22, 2007

very....completely...utterly...exhausted!!! (funny how all my posts lately start that way?!)

did 2 very cool things today that i haven't done in a while:

1. had a girls' night and got a pedicure with jojo. that was not only much needed but quite relaxing. i now have no money.

2. went into bernie's studio and recorded some stuff. that was great fun!! haven't recorded anything in a while...even though i love doing it!!!!!

now it's off to some serious bathtime...then bed.

today has been absolutely exhausting and overwhelming! we listed the house this morning which was good, but also quite overwhelming because of the amount of work that goes into selling a house. packing, cleaning, getting things together and moved is just more than i can think about right now. i am so tired and easily exhausted right now that it just makes me tired to think about it!

my neighbor came over and took some stuff today and they are coming back tonight with their truck to get some more stuff. that helps them and me: the less i have to deal with the better!!

oscar is taken care of. we can't take him with us on our move so jonathan and amanda are taking him. i am really happy about that. i don't want to give him away but since i don't have a choice, i'm glad that he's going to really good friends who i know will take care of him.

erin is coming over tonight which i am VERY excited about. i feel like i havent' seen her in forever! it'll be good to see her and the girls for a bit.

i didn't sleep last night at all. i literally just laid in bed awake all night. not sick. not anything. just not sleeping. utterly frustrating!

so now i am going to take a nap before robert, erin, and the girls get here. lovely.

i've been feeling so much better the past 2 days!!! almost like my old non-pregnant self! (knock on wood) up to this point, come 8pm, i've been wasted with really bad indigestion. but the past 2 nights i've felt really good with NO indigestion! i'm very happy about that!

i went to pick up my last check from work tonight. that was interesting. i no longer work for them and anakin is in daycare. not completely sure how i feel about it all. part of me is relieved that i'll have a chance to get my house done and moved, etc and part of me is upset that i won't be with the kids anymore. oh well. c'est la vie.

it looks like i'll be going to the music dept again this year to help out with TMI prep stuff which i am SO excited about! so the money that we thought we lost by me not working anymore is not really lost! just coming from a new place. thank you, lord! we need it!!!

when we were coming home, our neighbors were out in their yard so we stopped to talk a second. they just bought a new house in snellville so they aren't our neighbors anymore, but they are cool. rocky, the husband/dad, was doing some last minute stuff to the house and yard before he had to turn his keys in, so his wife and kids came over to hang out for a bit. it was nice to sit and talk with her a little. she's really funny! and, robert was able to borrow their lawnmower (since he broke ours) and get our lawn mowed before susan comes to take pictures of the house tomorrow for our listing. so that was really nice!!!

but now it's 10:30 and i'm getting sleepy. so goodnight, blogosphere.

we've hit the double digits!!! 10 weeks today!!!!!! this week i haven't been feeling that great. still no "morning sickness" to speak of, just horrible indigestion that makes me feel awful. and it sets in really badly between 8 - 9. then i'm done for the night!!!

lots of changes going on in the snelson household. other than the obvious "having a baby thing", we are selling our house. interesting changes going on in our lives. things have been somewhat stressful. okay, a lot stressful. prayer would be good.


so robert and i went to tour the hospital tonight. as soon as we got onto the room, i broke into a cold sweat, almost threw up, and almost passed out. i had to leave. does anyone see anything wrong with this? it's not like i didn't know what to expect. i was in the delivery room with erin! at THAT hospital! but needless to say it freaked me out. completely.

9 weeks!

Sunday, June 10, 2007

WHEW!!!! this weekend is over!! it has been so exhausting! LONG days and not much sleep. it was awesome to have Talitha all weekend though. I am somewhat disappointed in myself, however, because i got NO pictures at all. that's disappointing. but she is such a good baby - i hada great time with her!

i missed territorial songsters more than i thought i would. i sat in on rehearsals on thursday night which was good. but it definitly made me miss it.

i hit week 9 yesterday. baby snelson is doing well. i have another appt tomorrow -- first of the regular OB appts. i graduated from the infertility clinic on tuesday! (insert pomp and circumstance here.) tomorrow i'll get to hear the baby's heartbeat for real. we heard it tuesday but it was very brief and completely unexpected so it took me a minute to figure out that what it was! stupid me!!!

anyway, all in all things here are okay. 7 more months until baby snelson graces us with his/her presence!

Tuesday, June 05, 2007

here's the newest picture of baby snelson! s/he's 4 cm long and his/her arms and legs are moving! heartbeat is at 174 bpm, so that's great! if you look on the picture, the left side of the baby is the head and the black spot there is one of the eyes. you can't really see but there is an arm there! the still pictures aren't nearly as clear as seeing the screen in person!

i'm 8 weeks today. so far i've been feeling okay...until yesterday when i started feeling really bad. not nauseous or sick, but more EXTREMELY exhausted and faint. other than that, though, i'm doing alright!!! (knock on wood)
