 This is me

  • Loved reading all of the comments on my last post and realizing that I have created a K fan club. :)

  • Battling horrible head aches every single day. Discouraged that nothing short of going to the chiropractor seems to come close to curing them. My last chiropractor fix lasted five days, then the headaches were back with a vengeance. I don't think I can afford to go every five days... Really hoping I can figure out how to get rid of them for good. Laying on the couch with a pillow over ones eyes is not practical when one has three, very active, small boys....

  • Looking forward to hearing that same news from this wonderful couple. Hoping to get to their adoption fund raising garage sale tomorrow.

  • Loving our tradition of camping every Friday night.

  • Excited to be planning a camping trip for all of my siblings, parents, and us, halfway between here and Iowa at the end of May.

  • Excited about K's IEP (individual education program) coming up May 13th, being able to meet some of his new teachers, and discussing our plans for his upcoming year of kindergarten.

  • So, so curious if this little one is a boy or a girl.

  • Finally have a sufficient iron level.

  • Writing a book about our experiences with loss and the hope we have clung to.

  • Right on my body clock - started having contractions when I hit the 14 week mark. That's my norm. It was only one evening, after I had been on my feet most of the day. Now I am listening to my body more perceptively.

  • Ordered 20 progesterone injections. Woo hoo. I'm actually very thankful for them, due to the previous bullet point info. I am apparently progesterone deficient causing my tendency for preterm labor. The weekly injections are a very good thing. So what if my poor thighs take a hit and my poor bank account takes a hit (Seriously insurance company, why must you deny me this? Would you rather a multi million dollar NICU baby, or these 20 shots?!).

  • So can't believe how big my boys are getting! Loved watching K read a story to Noe this morning.

That insurance thing is CRAZY! But I'm glad you got the shots. Praying for a long and early-labor-free pregnancy for you!

So sorry about the head aches! Hope you find some relife soon.

Glad to here about the book! I will look forward to seeing it.

Hope to see you tomorrow. I have a touch of the flu that has been plaguing my house this week. I normally am very resiliant from such things. Praying it is true today.

Your bump is growing! Well, I don't have to tell YOU that but I am enjoying watching it.
I am ANGRY with insurance companies. Some of there "policies" are riciulously STUPID.
I would like mine to pay for Hubby's vasec, instead of health care for another child. Ahem.
My Mother had those shots with my sister and I too. Sorry, you get the needle, but OH so happy to see what's waiting at the other end! :)
Couple more times of looking at that bump and I'll be ready to make a "guess". I won't tell you, I'll draft it and save it, send it when baby comes. I love guessing.

Days spent like your Wednesday are always lovely. Not that regular days aren't lovely, but...
Perhaps your chiropractor would be able to give you some suggestions about DIY headache remedies? Hopefully it's something simple like switching your pillow.
How do you manage going camping every Friday night? I would love to hear the details.

Debbie said...

I so hope you can get those headaches under control. Have you tried physical therapy?

Rachel said...
