It's Been Awhile
I realized today how long its been since I actually wrote a post. Life during the holidays are always crazy and this year has been no different. Between shopping (of which I will be finishing tomorrow, thank heavens), decorating, parties, spending time with my family, long drives into civilization and many Dr appts its just never ending. I've developed some new problems in my pregnancy which has made life and taking care of my kids very, very difficult. I was diagnosed with placenta previa and after a second follow up ultrasound today, they found that my placenta pretty much covers my entire cervix and will not be likely to move. So, now I have to go in every six weeks for an ultrasound to keep an eye on it and I've been put on light, light duty. Gotta love that when you have two toddlers who make that near impossible. My other problems have been the increase in my migraines, I've been having kidney problems (even spent three days in the hospital for pain management) and I've started retaining water. I've dealt with a small amount of swelling during my pregnancies in the past, but now by the end of the night I can barely bend my fingers, spending more than 30 minutes on my feet causes them to swell and I'm now packing on large quantities of water weight, which is so depressing. I hate that I have now gained 35lbs and I'm only 6 months along. It sucks. It all makes life so complicated, but I am trying to enjoy my down time by reading, playing with my kids and keeping up with everyones blogs. If I haven't been so great with mine, I've certainly spent lots of time reading about everyone else's lives. I still need to post up Halloween pics, for which I apologize and the ones I have at the moment aren't super great. My parents however took a lot of photos so I need to get copies from them. I also need to get a current pregnancy photo up. I feel like there is a never ending list of things I'd like to put up for everyone's enjoyment. I'm not sure I'll get around to writing again before Christmas, so I'll wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. I hope you enjoy your time with your loved ones, you will most certainly be in my thoughts.
