My biggest baby news this week is I’m scheduled for a repeat c-section first thing in the morning on Friday, May 22, 2015! It is a very strange feeling being scheduled. I teared up a bit when I found out the date and time of baby girl #2’s delivery. I still have mixed emotions about scheduling a c-section but I’m 90% sure I’ve made the right decision, and I can still cancel and try for a VBAC if I change my mind.
I had a baby check up and everything is looking good. The babies heart beat is around 150 beats per minute and she’s moving around like a fish in water. It seems like she never sleeps. I’m one week away from the 3rd trimester so my appointments will be every 3 weeks instead of every 4. I took care of my 2 hour glucose test, it wasn’t as bad as I remembered it and all results came back normal. Yippee! The word of the week is overwhelm… it has been challenging to say the least. A freak dirt bike accident has Pat bed ridden for weeks with torn ligaments and a very bad sprang in one ankle and a 21-stitch worthy laceration on the other. He can’t walk and is in a lot of pain. Poor guy. I feel selfish for complaining but it has been pretty difficult for me taking care of everything and everyone in the house. Every meal, dirty dish, diaper change, bath, bed time, grocery store run and so on and so on is now my responsibility. If I weren’t pregnant I think I could handle it with more ease and elegance, but I am almost 7 months along with a 2 year old running around which makes me tired on its own. Looking on the bright side, Pat is going to be fine, it’s not permanent. The accident and timing could have been a lot worse. A friend of mine turned me onto what feels like a lifesaving service!
