It's been a year...

I can not believe that it's been a year since i've been on this little ol' blog.
I always say I'm going to make a comeback, to be honest I probably won't....So I won't even say i'm going to try this time round.

One of my biggest failures of blogging is that I have this crazy OCD thought that I need to go back and blog every thing I've missed. But that's impossible. So I don't, and then I give up. And honestly a LOT has happened in this past year, so to think about going back and remembering everything is crazy. I wish I would have kept up with blogging though, especially T's story. I have all of Carters' story, hardly any of Trenton's, and basically none of Nixon's. I guess its a good thing i'm addicted to Instagram! haha

Anyways, I've really felt the urge to write/document/journal lately. Let out my feelings and thoughts, so maybe this round will be different? We will see. Time will tell.

Comprehensive care appointment

FINALLY we have a plan in place for this baby! We saw comprehensive Care, Dr. D, in February. He sat at talked/consulted with us for 3 hours today! That's amazing for any doctor, let alone a doctor at Primary Children's. I'm so beyond thrilled that we were able to get in with him. He has set into motion several new things for T, and has several more ideas on how to best help him. Our biggest things we will be doing now are Botox in T's legs and an increase in his Baclophen medication. I pray that things start to help T out, it's so hard to watch him be so miserable!!!!

Baby boy #3

I had the opportunity to see baby #3 via 3D ultrasound image at my 30 week appointment with the baby specialist. Things are going so well, and looking so good that I no longer have to be seen by the specialist!! This is such a bittersweet thing for me. I have loved going in for an ultrasound once a month to see this special boy, BUT I have not loved the price tag that comes along with those appointments. At $300 an ultrasound, plus doctor visit fees it's a pricey appointment for sure.

This too shall pass.

Mr. T got sick yet again earlier this spring. His arching stance is out of control and his irritability is out of this world. The poor boy is tight, and so uncomfortable! We have an appointment scheduled to hopefully get things under control and let T be more comfortable. Here's to praying and crossing our fingers!!

3rd trimester

Third trimester is here, and we are quickly(yet slooowly) crossing off weeks till baby boy gets here. Currently I am 30 weeks and 5 days. This pregnancy has been so different from the other two pregnancies. From the start it was different, and it's kept it up. I've been so much sick-er with this little boy, so much so that I would have placed big money on the fact that HE was a SHE. I've had insane amounts of reflex. Now I normally get heartburn, like most preggo ladies, but this reflex is an entirely different story! Chewable Tums have been my best friend. I've craved more things this time then ever before, though nothing weird. I've been sleeping like crap since the beginning, and my swelling decides to just come and go throughout the day. Making it very difficult in the shoe department! Also, this little guy doesn't like to kick, rather more just roll around in there, causing a lot of pain and discomfort. 

Now while there have been such differences, for me. I've also enjoyed things a little differently with him too. This baby could be our last biological child, depending on if T's genetic issues have continued with this little boy or not. Time will only tell on that. Therefore, as much as I so would love to have him here already(not really...you moms know what I mean), I've enjoyed the pains, and kicks, and HUGENESS, and the swelling, and the cravings, and the weight gain(ugh!), etc. etc. etc. much more. This baby is an answer to many months of thoughtful prayer, and the proven miracle of God's timing in all things. I hope that I haven't taken that for granted. 

I'm so excited for T to be a big brother, and for our family to grow. Nothing could make me happier than the knowledge of God's plan for The family, and for MY family. He is truly in all things, and families are a big part of His plan! I'm excited to have 3 boys, and to know our angle is watching over us day and night. So here is to being happy these last few months, because, I've got this!

big accomplishment, grabbing himself and holding onto his wheelchair strap.
We are quickly running out of room on moms lap!
