Lets catch up on the little Snowman

Alright, I am a little behind here, so lets catch you up on how the little Snowman is doing!

The last time you heard about the little guy was our last ultrasound at week 20. Well, we’ve had 2 appointments since that one.

At week 21 his heartrate was a nice steady beat of 142 and the doctor had no worries. He is growing at the rate he should and was even nice and cooperated with the doctor, ha! Now for this visit I found out something interesting. They don’t start scheduling eviction dates until around week 32 or so. Um, WTH! I think by that time Snowman just like Baby J will be saying “get me the heck out of here!” So, sadly no eviction date set yet, boo hiss!

Now on to week 25 which was our appointment yesterday.

All day long little Snowman was *active* and did not stop moving from the moment he figured I was awake! *groans* He was moving so much that one of my classmates asked me if I was ok when she notice me wince and hold my stomach a few times. This little guy likes to kick, push and roll around my belly button and it feels awfully weird. I keep telling him that he keeps it up he’ll make me puke, but of course he doesn’t listen to me. Sighs.

So, onto the doctors who were extremely busy. My appointment was suppose to be at 1:30 but I wasn’t seen until sometime after 2, whew!

This week his heartrate was much much slower at 130. To me that is very concerning because that’s a big drop from any of the other visits. The doctor wasn’t concerned and was just thinking that maybe he was finally having a nap after being active all day and I want to believe that as well. However, i’m seriously concerned that the stress that happened the last week with people we tried to help and others may have contributed. Jerry was also a bit worried when I told him the heartrate.

Other than that Snowman is doing well and still growing as he should. So I will try not to worry and see what happens when I go back in 2 weeks.

Speaking of 2 weeks at our next appointment. It’s prego sugar test time! And guess what? I’m stuck with, that, damn, annoying, orange, drink, again!

What is up with every pregnancy, every doctor, no matter where I live has that damned annoying nasty orange drink? I mean seriusly there is another flavor out there! It’s a conspiracy I swear!

One good thing is this time I don’t have to starve all day before taking the test. That’s a good thing because I’d be in some serious trouble. Snowman absolutely refuses to give me a warning when he says time to eat. When he says feed me, he means feed me and right now! So, I just need to make sure that I eat something before my doctors appointment because I can’t eat during the test and it can take up to a hour or maybe more.

So, until next time the currently rolling streching Snowman and I say have a great night!

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!

Eeeeeep, my brother stinks

swim swim swim I go. It’s so nice that I can hears things like my mommy and brother and daddy. It was too quiet around here. Snowman, is that’s my name? Cow, my brother calls me cow, hmm! Swim swim swi . . .

What’s that bad bad bad smells? Quick, covers my nose. Help help, what’s that smells, how do I tells them I know like that smells? I can hears them, but they no can hear me yet! Stop stop, make it goes away!

What’s that, mommy says that’s my brother’s stinky diaper! Eeeeeeee, gag, makes it stop mommy, makes it go away! Covers my nose with both hands!

Eeeeeeee, brothers you stinks! Stoooooooooooop, you’s ruining my swimmings!

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!

Snowman the sweet potato 2.0

Welcome to the little sweet potato 2.0 and how things are different this time around!

For those that are not aware because you aren’t following me on twitter or facebook, this little sweet potato is also a boy. He is our little Snowman and due in December! His name is Kalvin.

Lol, we played the guess his name game and let me tell you, the names people guessed during 3 rounds was just priceless. No one came close to getting it right until I gave a huge clue, but it was still fun!

So, all about this little guy!

1. I don’t feel him move as much as I did with Baby J and that’s taking some getting use too. As tiny as I am I’m use to feeling them fluttering around by the time I reach 3 and a half months! Nope, this time around the layout of inner parts makes it a bit different.
2. 2. He was not shy at all about letting us know he was a boy right out the gate. Thanks to Aira who described our ultrasound picture, hahaha, he’s posing for the whole world to see.
3. 3. I’m still sitting under 160 pounds at 18 weeks. Whereas with peanut I was almost 170.
4. 4. He loves pineapples, eggs ***thank god***, orange juice, corn and string beans mixed together, anything from taco bell, salads and yogurt!
5. 5. Now with this little bugger I get no gentle nudge of hey mommy I’m hungry! Nope, right out the gate it’s hey woman feed me and feed me now!

The most adorable thing is peanut and the baby to be. Lol, he likes poking my belly and saying hi to his little brother. He even gives him a kiss. I can’t wait until the day when Kal kicks him back to see what he does, hahahah.

Our next doctors visit is on Wednesday August 1, 2018. I think at that time is when we will be picking the eviction date for the little Snowman. So until then, have a great night. It’s time to feed the Snowman before he kills me, lol.

Bad mommy and daddy, I said just me

What? My mommy and daddy did, not, listens, too, me! I tolds them no no no no no, I did nots want any brothers or sisters, just me! They did nots listens!

My mommy tells me that there’s a baby in her tummy’s. I likes telling the baby night night and then poking it! Mommy says I should nots do that cause it will kick me back. I just giggles! Baby won’t kicks me, poke poke poke!

Anyways, mommy is trying to teach me to say my little brothers name. She says I sound likes I’m calling him cow, hehehehe! Shhh, I don’t think I was supposes to tells you that part! Ah well, what do I do? I have this baby coming who will takes all my mommy’s attention from me’s! Daddy’s too, but that just can’t happens, no no no no no!

I goes to sleep now. I have school tomorrows!

Night night baby. Remembers, I’s the big brother, k?

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!

Between 4 and 7 weeks

Welcome to new baby entry number 2! This one is pretty short, but still a nice little update.

i had my first brief OB appointment today and got to meet who will be my baby doc for the next several months and bring in the new little snow baby! Her name is Linda who’s last name I couldn’t spell or pronounced if you paid me, lol.

The purpose of todays visit was just to do the blood test to get the approximate guess of how far along I am in this pregnancy. Sadly I couldn’t get the test to find out if we’re having a boy or a girl. That blood work is something to doctors have to order since the labs don’t get that lab work round. I think they should if it’s a prego hospital, but hey, that’s just me! So, it probably won’t be until something in August when we find out.

So, according to the blood work I am sitting between 4 and 7 weeks of pregnancy. Big range I think. Damn blood work should be a lot more closer, lol. Our first ultrasound will be on Tuesday morning where it can get narrowd down some more going by size of the little snow baby that’s swimming around in my belly! If we’re lucky he or she will be nice and we’ll get a heartbeat as well!

So, until Tuesday, have a great night!

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?

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!
