ER-Take 2 (and request for recipes!)

I am really struggling to breathe these days and found myself back in the ER last night. I called my ob/gyn because I felt ridiculous having just been there on Thursday. He said to go back though, because if I am not getting enough O2 then obviously neither is the baby. So, they did a NST and baby boy looked good. :) Then I had a breathing treatment. Maybe doc will move my scheduled c-section date up if this continues?????

Hey a girl can wish!

On a side note, I am still totally nesting. My new plan is to make several dishes that freeze well to have once the baby comes. I will be making chili and meatloaf for sure. Does anyone have any recipes that they are willing to spare that they know freeze well? Thanks so much!!!

Trip to the ER

Before I go any futher...I am okay.

Had my 36 week check up today. I have been having some trouble breathing recently and just chalked it up to another wonderful late pregnancy symptom. When my dr saw me, he immediately said I needed to go to the ER b/c if I was getting enough oxygen, neither was the baby.

Needless to say, it was a huge ordeal with me being 36 (!!!!) weeks and all. They had L & D come down and monitor me while I had various bloodwork and a breathing treatment. I was discharged as having had an asthma attack.

Baby seemed fine. They did a very long NST b/c he wasn't moving too much but heart rate was good. I had several contractions during the 2 hour monitoring, but I have been having a ton of Braxton Hicks.

I am just exhausted. Both mentally and physically. I think this was my body's way of saying...slow down! I really have been doing too much. So, I wait another week. I was supposed to get my first internal check today, but I guess it will be next week.

Hopefully I will have less drama this week! I really better pack my bag sooner than later though!

still around

hi all...i am still around but haven't been able to blog much. although i am not necessarily writing or commenting, i still steal a few minutes each day to keep updated with all of you. sounds like everyone is doing great which is super exciting with all the first trimester BFPs in my blog folder. i am now about 35 weeks and starting to feel the panic of not being ready. we have decided that we need to move, so in the process of being so tired from pregnancy and having a toddler...i am also preparing our house to put it up for sale. exhausting is an understatement!

not too much new to report. i have a dr appt this thursday and i think i go every week from now on. i haven't seen my dr in a month b/c he was not there for my last appt. i will probably post after my visit.

lots of loving thoughts are with all of you!
