Our little mango shows us what he thinks about being woken up

Zzzzzzzzzzzz, nudge nudge, zzzzzzzzzz, nudge, nudge. Swish swish swish swish.

Tech, there’s his heartbeat at 142
Me, are you sure that’s his and not mine? Sounds awfully slow.
Tech, yep, that’s his, I have a good picture of it right here.

Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrgggggg! There’s that thing again. What’s that my mommy is talkings about? Eeeeep, what, more pictures!!!! Aaaaarrrrrrrrrrgggggg, doesn’t they knows I was sleeping? Sturbs my rest, I’ll fixs them!

Swim swim swim, turn turn turn.

Tech, oh my, um, yes he’s definitely a boy! He just popped it right out there!

Hmph, takes that picture taker persons. Now lets me rest . . . Eeeeeeeep, that’s didn’t works, still poking at me’s. Fines fines fines!

Swim swims, wiggle wiggles, I shall just keeps moving. That will show thems.

Whew, I’s tired, mommy’s are you dones yet? I’ll just curls up now and put my fingers in my mouths and sleeps and maybe if I Ignores them that will make them goes away? Right, maybe? Zzz, mommy’s I’s tireds now k, zzzz.

A few minutes goes by so our brave little baby gets to sleep.

Dr. Stewart, lets have a look.

Nudge nudge nudge

Dr, everything is looking good. Good brain, good spine.

Aaaaaarrrrrrrgggggggg, nots again, there’s another’s one! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa, takes that you’s peeper!

Dr, um, yes, I agree he’s definitely a boy!

Heheheheeh, our little Snowman clearly wants to make sure that we know he’s a boy and has no problems flashing the camera. I think he’s going to need more watching than his brother, lol.

Be sure to tune in next week for the next installment of Snowman the flasher!

The elusive Snowman strikes again

You know, I’m really starting to get the feeling that little Snowman here is going to be the quiet and sneaky type, unlike his brother that’s the energizer bunny sneaky type, lol.

Today was our doctors appointment where once again Mr. Kal decided to play peek-a-boo with us again. My doctor spent 10 minutes chasing him around trying to get his heart rate. She didn’t believe me when I said he made us work for it for the ultrasound, hahahah!

Linda, pushes a little on my stomach to make him go in the direction she wanted.
Snowman, ha, I don’t think so doc…stays put
Linda, moves the heart monitor thing where Kal is
Snowman, nope, I don’t think so.moves away!
Linda, wow, he is quite the stubborn one isn’t he? I didn’t believe you about him being a challenge!
Me, haha, told you!

Finally, she caught him I guess while he was taking a breather from swimming around in there and we got his heart rate at 147 for today.

Sadly, still no movements that he lets me feel on a regular basis. If he discovers that I can feel him sticking a body part out he quickly moves away and hides again. Darn him!!!

I will be switching doctors on the 22nd to the one that will actually be doing the c-section.

Linda, I’m going to now switch you over to doctor Clark, she’s very nice.
Me, Ah, so you won’t be my delivery doctor?
Linda, Nope, I don’t do c-sections. They won’t let me have a knife for some reason!
Me, Oh my, ok, her it is then.

So, maybe on the 22nd we can set the eviction date and by then Mr. Snowman will start being more ***cooperative*** I can hope, right?

Oh yes, and I am currently sitting at 159 pounds. Next visit is another ultrasound which checks Snowman’s anademy to make sure everything is growing as it should.

Until next time!

Bloodwork vs. Ultrasound, someone can’t read

Wow, this little snowman is full of surprises!

So, today was the first day of loads of days to look forward too, the first ultrasound. This ultrasound was very important because it would let us know how far along we actually are and how the little one is doing so far. Well, we found out and ***what*** a surprise!

Bloodwork vs. Ultrasound

If you read the last entry then you should be caught up and know that it told the doctors and lab people and nurses and then me that we were only between 4 and 7 weeks. Well, for me that just didn’t add up in my mind. There was know way in hell that could have been right, but ah well, whatever! It is what is is. On with the show!

July 24, 2018 at 9:30AM EST we got our answers!

9:15AM, May, come on down, we’re ready to tell you whats behind belly number one!

Amy our lovely funny tech person running the ultrasound was very nice and described all of what she was doing

Squirt squirt squirt goes that warm stinky stuff on your tummy
Baby is looking good
Chase him around to catch the heartbeat which reminded me of little Baby J when we wanted to hear his heart rate and find out if he’d let us see if he was a boy or girl, hahaha. The heart rate at present is 150 and sounded really good. I just love that sound!

Amy, so it looks like you are about 17 weeks pregnant!
May and Jerry, um, huh, what! Wait, what?

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, the ultrasound said we are actually sitting at 17 weeks and 2 days and ***not*** 4 to 7 like the lab people said my bloodwork said.

Who the hell read my lab work? I think they need to get back to lab school and learn to read. I mean holy hell, that’s a ***huge*** difference. 4 to 7 turns into 17, yipes!

So instead of early next year when this awesome unexpected bundle of joy will enter the world it will be around Christmas!

Merry Christmas it’s a

Psst, has anyone paid attention to some little key words I snuck in there? I bet you didn’t! Your task is to go back to the beginning and find out, better read slowly! Ha!

And ***no*** it is not twins!

See you next week!

Mommy, Baby J and Snowman!

Hospital visit brings shocking results

Everyone that knows me well enough knows that I absolutely hate going to doctors and especially hospitals. I mean, if I’m going to be miserable and what not, then I can be that curled up in bed, right? All they will tell you is, get rest, drink fluids, take whatever medicine that you can end up getting over the counter or even worse, we can’t find anything wrong! So, why waist all that time when you can skip that step and start doing that from the comfort of your bed?

Well, those were my thoughts until early Monday morning of July 10, 2018.

It all started on Sunday, July 9, 2018 at the bright hour of 6AM when my adorable little peanut, baby J decided it was time to wake up. We had our usual morning cuddles while I grumbled at him about waking up so early on the weekend and him just smiling away while poking me in the nose, ha!

At that point when peanut decided it was time to then start beating up mommy for his morning routine I noticed that I just was not feeling well. Definitely an unset tummy. No biggy, it wil go away in time. I’ll just drink more fluids and eat light. That usually works.

Hi toilet, how are you?

Starting around 1PM things changed. I started getting sick every hour no matter what. I eat, it went to my friend Mr. Toilet. I drank, same results. Ugh, no fun especially while trying to watch a 22 month old.

At 1AM on Monday is when I started getting concerned. I was visiting my friend the toilet every 20 minutes. It got so bad that I woke up the little peanut who came and stood in the bathroom with me a couple of times. Poor baby!

So, it was time that I broke down and take my ass to the hospital. I decided if I could hold off I’d go right after we got peanut off to Kindercare for the day.

Hospital visitng brings shocking news!

So I finally get to the ER around 11AM on Monday, July 10, 2018. I won’t explain here why it took that long to get to the ER because it would make the entry too long and that’s a whole other rant, smiles.

So, once I’m finally at the ER I find out that I am indeed seriously dehydrated and immediately given fluids and medicine to help settle my stomach. Blood work is done to find out why all of a suddent I got sick and what’s going on to make my poor tummy so agitated.

Around mid afternoon here’s what happened!

Docotr, hey there May, we found out what’s making you so ill all of a sudden
Me, *thoughts* oh dear, something not good.
Me, Ok, what’s wrong?
Doctor, You’re pregnant!
Me, drops phone on the bed and stares at the doctor
Me, I’m what? No way, are you sure? Huh? I’m what?
Doctor, Yes, you’re pregnant! We did the bloodwork to check for everything and the pregnancy test came back that you’re indeed pregnant.
Me, no way…I’m, huh! Wow!

Good thing I was laying down when I got that news!

Go to the hospital due to dehydration and come out pregnant! Welcome to pregnancy life mommy part 2!

Psst, hey baby in there, we’re glad you’re there, but could you have let us know without trying to kill me?

Trust your dog

You know it amazes me how many times I get hit in the face with that phrase from my own dog in her way.

Today was our first day at Ohio State Marion for classes and even though it’s a small campus it’s a little confusing due to the layout.

Well, I was still very much confused so showed up early to give myself time to get lost. I had my certain landmarks to listen for and to watch out for, but was still pretty nervous.

So, we get inside the building and cruise through the doors and one of my landmarks isn’t running…darn water fountains! Think I need to figure out something else to use, lol. 

Anyways, I tell Luna left after a while since I know we have to go that way and like the good girl she is, she goes left when it’s time to do so.

Well, great, don’t hear my other landmark which is the vending machines, *grumbles* but Luna is still cruising along like she knows where she’s going. She shows me a door, but I didn’t see the sign just a blank wall…erm, this wall doesn’t feel right. Luna I think we missed something.

So, I turn her around and we start walking another direction. hey, there’s the vending machines I was looking for! They were there the whole time just quiet, drats! Ah well, that means we should be by the other exit doors. Forward we go then.

LUna, find the doors, outside!

Heheh, Luna shows me a door, but guess what, it’s not the exit doors! Well, crap, now what?

So, I yet again turn Luna around since I know we’re in the right general area and off we go again. Luna drags me down the hall the way we were going the first time, you know, before I turned her aroun, hahah.

She shows me the door again, but this time a little further over and um, guess what? It’s the direction I needed to be! I just needed to go one more door down to be in the right place.

Me: Oops, guess we were going right the first time, eh Luna?
Luna: *gives me the look of duh* and then sighs at me, like I told you so. Next time listen!
Me: gives her a treat and tell her what a smart great girl she is and we go on with our day.

One of these years I’ll learn to follow and trust my dog when they are more sure than I am. Of course then it will be my luck I end up who knows where, hahaha, right?

Looks who’s talking now!

Now, hopefully I did this right, lol.

For those that receive this via email there are audio files in this entry so not sure if it will show you. If so, great! If not, then head over to my blog directly, smiles. You don’t want to miss this cuteness!!

Hey, look who’s giving us those great baby noises now! 2 months old and his talking away!

And if that wasn’t cute enough, then check this one out where he *demands* our attention at 6:15 this morning.

Adventures with baby J at 2 weeks

Wheeeeee! Time continues to fly right on by! Baby J is now 2 weeks old and here’s the adventures he’s brought us this time.

For those viewing this entry via email, there is a video attached, so make sure to pop on over to www.youtube.com/canadianlynx1 and look for baby J.

For those of you that have not seen how *cute* and *adorable* Jaydon is, how about we give you that chance now! Take a look at this video at the star of the show!!

Whenever I can remember how to do so, I will be adding his pictures to my photo collection as well. But isn’t he sooooooo cute? That’s what everyone keeps telling us and stating they’re going to kidnap him. I need to seriously invest in those security bracelets like they have at the hospital, lol.

Finally, its daddy’s turn!
Ah, so one day daddy took it on himself to change J’s diaper while I was sleeping…rare moment getting to sleep for me you know, lol. Anyways, his first time he does an *awesome* job. Go daddy! That was even with part of that annoying umbilical cord still attached. Gods, I’ll be glad when that’s finally all gone!

Baby J gives daddy a hard time!
Oooops, sorry daddy. This time changing that diaper doesn’t go as smoothly, hahah.

1. daddy gets everything ready to change the diaper
2. daddy places J on changing table
3. daddy goes to unbutton onesie

Jaydon, Ooooops, sorry daddy, you can’t change my diaper! *crosses his legs over his bum and hides the buttons* and refuses to let daddy move them!
Daddy, *laughing* he won’t let me take his clothes off
Me, hahahahahahahah

I of course am highly amused by this development and let it go on for a few minutes before rescuing daddy…or maybe I was rescuing the baby? lol.

I walk in the room and of course have to tease daddy.

Me, J, are you giving daddy a hard time?
jaydon, *big smile* and starts waving his arms and legs around
Daddy, *walks off to have a cigarette while laughing* Of course he was

First doctors appointment
Well, our little guy just had his first appointment yesterday morning and of course, *you guessed it* everyone ooooooo’d and aaaaaah’d and wanted to kidnap him, smiles.

J is doing well except for his weight. It’s not horrible, but I’m just a little concerned about it and daddy is more so. He’s a pound under his birth weight at 6lbs, and about 9 ounces and I sometimes feel that even though he eats and eats and eats, he’s just not putting on weight…quite the opposite, he seems to be losing. He’s still giving me loads of wet and poopy diapers so nothing to be overly concerned about, but still, *grumbles* Trying not to get too stressed about it since that won’t help with milk flow either, but damn that’s hard, lol. Anyways, as I said, besides that the little guy is looking great and the doctor wants us to come in next week for a weight check.

Mommy’s boy
lol, now this little guy is definitely a mommy’s boy. In my opinion i think he’s more my little shadow than my other 2 monsters were. With them I at least got them to sleep in their beds all the time. Smiles, J will during the day, but I can’t for no reason get him to stay there at night. This should make it fun when I start back to work on Tuesday night.

people say it’s because i’m a night owl that he’s one too and has to be with mommy. Hahah, most likely that is true. hmm, wonder if I can get double pay for teaching Jaydon early about working for Red Roof?

Now if he is not with me and say daddy tries to comfort him by holding him or rocking him and he really wants his mommy….trust me, he will let you know it, lol. Squirmy boy and pretty much make you death by those awesome set of lungs of his, he will demand you take him to his mommy!

Anyways, until the next update. I hope everyone has a great long weekend!

Wow, one week old already?

Wow how time flies! Can you believe it’s been a week already? That’s right, baby J is already one week old and boy what a ride it’s been! Sleep, what sleep/ That thing and I weren’t friends even before I was pregnant and it’s nice to see that really hasn’t changed much.

So, the joys of staying in a hospital after giving birth, just ugh! I mean, do these nurses and doctors have a special class in how to disturb a patient when they are sleeping so they can poke and prod you? Hell, it reminds me of waiter and waitresses that ask, how’s your meal” when your mouth is full, lol.

Anytime J finally went to sleep along comes a nurse . . .
It’s time for his bath
It’s time for some test
It’s time for some shots
I need to take his vitals

I mean seriously, can’t you guys do this when he is…I don’t know, actually awake? He does stay awake for a while you know, sheesh!

One day we really had a rough night and didn’t get much sleep at all until like after 1 in the afternoon. Sure enough as soon as we got to sleep all cuddle up I get this nice beep from the nurses station . . .

Nurse, May, can I come in and get your vitals?

Me, *grumbles curse* sure, why not.

Of course she then felt bad after she discovered that we had just finally went to sleep and told all other doctors and nurses to like wait until either I call them or they see the light on my phone is on, then they’d know I was awake, lol.

Now J definitely had all the nurses fooled and you think they would have caught on after like the third time, but noooooo, hahahah.

Since they kept disturbing his sleep to do some kind of poking and prodding on him, he got to the point where he’d show signs of he really really needed to eat…like right now! He’d really start sucking his fingers or opening his mouth really big and looking for his food. So they’d bring him to me and be like . . .

Nurse, May, he’s really hungry!

However, hahah, the moment they handed him to me, he curl up, close his eyes and went to sleep.

Me, Are you sure he was hungry?
Nurse, yes, he was like sucking on his fingers and everything.
Me, mhmm, sure sure, doesn’t look like it to me. Looks like he fooled you guys, hahaha.

Now for our time at home

Another night owl?
Ooopps, think I created another night owl. As if I wasn’t enough in this household, lol.

Baby J will sleep just fine during the day in his room or in his play-yard, but come night time…no way, forget it. I can’t get him to stay in his room to save my life for more than 10 or 15 minutes. Unless he is with me and we’re laying down in our bed, he will not go to sleep. He must be up with mommy. Hmm, think this may pose a problem when I go back to work, lol.

Daddy earns his *over here* blind sign from baby J
One day Jerry went to give J his pacifier and J like took his little hand and shoved his daddy’s hand towards his face like…over here dad, my mouth is this way! Hahahahah, this has happened twice this week.

The funny thing is, J does not do this with me at all. Kind of reminds me of my daughter and how she was when she was little with the whole blindness thing with her dad and I. She’d be one way with me and a completely different way with her dad. So for now it looks like J will be like his sister there, but only time will tell.

Baseball player when he grows up?
Speaking of that darn pacifier, I kind of hate that he’s gotten attached to one, but ah well. Could be worse things he’s attached to, right?

Well, we think he could be one hell of a baseball player if he chooses. The little guy can definitely throw the pacifier far when he decides he doesn’t want it. There have been times it’s at the other end of his bed or on the other side of his play-yard. And of course if we take too long finding it to give it back to him he gets pissed off! lol, figure that one. It’s not our fault little guy that you decided to throw it across the moon and we have to hunt for it, smiles.

music snob!
Wow, only a week old and already lets us know what music he refuses to listen too. Jerry and I run our own radio station, www.phoenixfirefm.net that has a family side and an adult side and one day we decided that we’d have kids music play on the family side and put that on in Jaydon’s room. Well, that went over like a led balloon! He was not pleased with our choice of music for him. He let us know in his way of course…by screaming, that that was not the music he was use to hearing and he wanted it gone and right now!

Another time he was laying in his play-yard and the live version of “Hot Blooded” by Foreigner came on and he screamed about that one too, lol.

So, that’s been our week with the little guy so far. Stay tuned because I’m sure they will be more!

Third times the charm, happy birthday baby J

Whew, what a busy time it’s been! Lets update everyone that hasn’t already heard the news and hopefully get the blog caught back up, smiles.

As everyone knows that last week, last Tuesday afternoon I went into the hospital because baby J was trying once again to enter the world early and the results of that lovely visit. If you don’t remember, then, check that out here

Now lets move ahead to early Friday morning about 2AM eastern standard time. I end up in the hospital yet again because J says he wants out now! This time the staff is extremely rude in the fact that they made me feel like what the hell am i doing there, it’s all about the baby and you as the mother really don’t matter. Comments like, “the baby is fine so you’ll be ok.” I tell them I’m the one stressed out due to the pain he’s causing along with the contractions and I get, “oh, just relax and you’ll be fine. The baby is what’s important and he’s looking good. What’s a little discomfort to a healthy baby. You do want him coming out healthy right?” Um, like really. What a way to make the mom depressed and feel like crap, right?

So anyways, around 10:30-11AM our doctor comes in once again and states that “if the contractions were still 5 to 6 minutes apart she’d take little guy out, but since they’re not . . .”

By then I lost it and just cried even more. Once again how I felt and my concerns meant nothing even to my doctor! I was getting ready to call my bf and let him know that I’d be heading home once again to suffer because the doctors and nurses didn’t give a damn, but before that happened, here comes the fun part!

Baby J

No no no no nos, no mores upsetting my mommys and keeping mes in here. I wants out and I wants out rights now!

Five minutes after my doctor left my hospital room she came back in and said, “well the contractions picked back up so I’m going to check you out to see if you’ve dilated.”

The next thing I hear is . . . “oh crap, she has.”

Doctor, How soon can your husband get here?
Me, I don’t know, he’s has to call work and find a ride.
Doctor, um, well, do you think he can get here by 12:30?
Me, um, well, I think so, but he’ll definitely try super hard.

Come to find out that J was not screwing around this time. He meant business and they were taking him out by c-section or he was coming out naturally. He apparently made me dilate a lot, where if she waited any longer it would be taken from her by J, lol.

So needless to say I was then quickly prep for that c-section that wasn’t suppose to happen until August 29. BF/daddy made it there by 1pm and baby J was born at 1:59PM.

He entered the world weighing 7lbs, 8 ounces, 20 inches long, a head full of dark hair and blue eyes and to show his displeasure to the nurses and doctors that upset his mommy and forced him to stay in longer than he wanted…he peed on them! hahahahahahahah

Wow, let me tell you this boy has some powerful ass lungs on him! They pulled him out and within 2 seconds he definitely made his voice heard.

Doctor, now that’s what I like to hear.
Me, I told you had nothing to worry about. He demanded he was ready. Should have listened the first time.

So from this moment forward the pregnancy entries have ended and the fun of baby J has begun! I hope you’re ready for the ride…we’re in for trouble now!

All about the winter melon. 2 weeks to go!

Whew, we are still alive, honest!

For those receiving this via email there is a video in this entry. You should know the drill now, smiles. www.youtube.com/canadianlynx1 and look for 36 weeks.

Wow, I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to update everyone in a while, bad me! So lets give a refresher, shall we?

Last month we were in training for a job with Red Roof Inn and our lovely little hellion decided he’s had enough and he was ready to come out! look right here to check out J complaining to management and to this day he is still very determined that he wants out right now and does not want to wait until his eviction date!

roll roll roll, stretch stretch stretch

Baby J
Hellos out there! I’s still stucks in here! Hows does I gets out of here’s? *push push push* I’s find a ways out!

Ow ow ow ow, that was my rib kiddo! Whew, I’m to the point where I agree with the little hellion….let, him, out, already! My body will thank you, lol.

Right now the little monster is having a blast pushing against my ribs and dragging his foot back and forth while I try and right this! *ow ow ow ow ow* How much longer is left?

So, we finished training and got back home from Springfield Ohio on July 29th and the following week, the first week of August started the doctors doctors and more doctors visit. yep, I now have my second home at the doctors. On Mondays I visit the hospital where J will actually be born and on Fridays I have my appointment that’s here in town.

The first week which I said was August 1, we were pretty concerned that they might have to take the little guy early due to the fat he tried coming out early already. Plus, on top of that some people decided it would be a *great* idea to stress me out and my blood pressure went *waaaaaaay* up and that was concerning for the doctor as well. But, in the end Mr. J still doesn’t get his way and has to wait!

Baby J
No no no no nos, I nos likes it. I nos wants to waits! *push push push, stretch stretch stretch* Lets me outs I says!

last week, which was week 36 we got more stuff for Jaydon, diapers, coothes and other important things like that and lets just say his bed was completely buried! Check it out! For those that can see, his bedding is pretty cool, smiles.

Also last week at the hospital part of the visit during the ultrasound we were told that he was happily sucking his thumb. He didn’t have a care in the world since not long before that I gave him his favorite, apple juice!

Baby J
kick kick kicks, roll roll, Apple juices, me wants apple juice!

Yeah, I probably shouldn’t have just thought that, hahaha. Better wrap this up soon so I can go find that apple juice before he really gets going!

We’re now at week 37 with just 2, count them, 2 weeks to go and the little winter melon is quite active and still bound and determined that he will get his way. Since he like never sleeps I must say that it’s fun trying to work and talk to callers making reservations when you have a little monster kicking your butt and really making his views known about his crappy accommodations!

push push push push, stretch stretch stretch.I sits on mommys blatter! Takes that mommy. kicks kicks kicks!

Ow ow ow, ok, guess I’m done writing now! *groans* my poor ribs. Oof, and back the the bathroom I go too it looks like!

So until next time from the land of the winter melon and I, take care all! And someone pleeeeeease send me sleeping darts for the monster!
