Stuff

Last week I was having some laptop issues so I couldn't write a blog entry. Every time I tried the computer wouldn't connect. Technology. Gotta love it. Gotta hate it.

So I reached 32 weeks on Saturday and this is what the baby bump looks like. She sure is growing fast. It is hard to imagine that in 5 weeks the cerclage is coming out and Dorothy is going to come soon after. I am honestly terrified of labor (I know, I am a wimp), but also really excited to meet our baby girl. Last week Dr. F said I could be gradually increasing my activity level. He didn't give me a specific number of outings, so I have gone out quite a bit, but sitting down mostly. I just try not to push it too much.

Another reason I have been absent from blogging is that on Sunday night little Simon got sick and had to go to the hospital. I have been there quite a bit just to spend time. He is still there, but they were able to find out what was causing his fever. He got a bladder infection which also spread to his bloodstream. They got him on the right antibiotics for the bacteria and he is doing much better. He might be able to go home as early as tomorrow evening, but it's not for sure yet. I have been emotional about this all, especially since it is happening all around the time of my baby shower. You know how it is to have everything picture perfect in your head? I guess this time in my pregnancy I wanted to be able to enjoy it and it's hard to keep my mind on things. I also really want my sister-in-law to be there for the shower and I don't know if she will be able to. Friday evening is when the shower, and this one will be mainly for family and a few friends. We are getting a heat wave starting tomorrow and it is supposed to be around 100 on Friday and 104 on Saturday with no air conditioning!!! We'll all need a shower after the shower!

Other than that, we are just waiting for the big day.

Congrats on 32 weeks! Dorothy will be here before you know it!
I am sorry to hear about little Simon. I hope he gets well soon and can come home. I will be thinking about him and you and your sis-in-law. I am really close to my sis-in-law, so I can imagine what you are going through. I hope she can make it to your shower.
Try to enjoy what you have left!!

I love your little baby bumb! I'm so jealous.

I'm glad the laptop's working again. I was starting to freak out.

I'm sorry Simon's sick. After 6 1/2 months of Caleb being in the hospital, I've learned a ton. If you or your sis-in-law have hospital questions, email me. I can be very stressfull time. Tell her to rest! Simon's going need her to have her energy when he goes home.

Have fun at you shower. I hope you get lots of good stuff!

Sound a big woot! 32 weeks and still counting. You and that little one are amazing. I hope you get to enjoy your shower - you deserve it. I hope that Simon is recovering. It is horrible to have your baby in the hospital. Have fun with your outings and keep us posted.

I'll keep little Simon and his mommy in my prayers - its tough to have your baby in the hospital, I know from experience! My oldest daughter was readmitted four days after she was born to get her jaundice under control, and I think it was harder on me than it was on her even though I stayed with her in the hospital the whole time so I could nurse. Hopefully Simon gets better soon and can come home!

Congrats on 32 weeks! My pc has been bad too, I had to get a new modem and get her all fixed up. Anyway, so glad both of you are doing well, the pic is too cute :)

Praying that little Simon has a speedy recovery and that you have a great baby shower. Wow only 5 more weeks, that's amazing~ Take care.
