I had my 34 week Dr's appt yesterday where I was SCOLDED for losing the only 4lbs i've actually gained in this pregnancy! You heard right 4lbs. Now lets remember that I was a very sick gal for many months and lost right around 20lbs. I had only gained back 4 of that and now i've gained back zero! Some of you may be thinking "gosh she is lucky" while others are shaking your heads in disgust that I don't feed my baby! Let me reassure you....I eat! I just don't eat a lot. I also have been sick for a bout a week with some sort of virus. I ended up at the Texas Med Clinic last week only to have them tell me there isn't anything they can do (which there isn't). I had a semi embarrassing moment while I was there that included me almost passing out and being put in a wheel chair and rolled back to some "trauma" room with my feet elevated, an ice pack on my neck, water, & crackers. Not the best day! J also had to leave work and come get me because they didn't want me to drive home. Lets remember that all of this happened while in the middle of trying to talk to a very nice Dr. who I happen to know and came out to say hi and check on me!
I'm getting really excited about celebrating Ella Claire with my friends and family at an upcoming shower. Thanks to all the gals who are getting it together! It means the world to me!!!
Last but not least. My dreams are coming true! My mother is moving to TEXAS!!!!!! I'm head over heels in excitement!! She will get to be a part of Ella Claire's life on a DAILY basis. The best part is that she is in a hurry to get here. So this is not a "someday" thing. This is a "as soon as my house sells or I get a job i'm packing!" So please be praying with us. She has a God ordained interview this Thursday at 1pm. Did I mention how good God is? She didn't make this decision over night. She has been fervently praying for a long time and God is opening and closing doors in such a clear way! Thank you Lord for answered prayers. I try to say that "Ella needs her grandma, or it's just not fair for her to grow up with only half of her family" when in reality I am the one who needs my mom! 6 years living 12 hours away is all I can handle!!!!!
Also please check out my friends blog for a chance to win BabyLegs and to be inspired by her writing. It's amazing and i'm addicted to reading it and know you will be too! Read this post in particular to hear just a portion of her testimony.
Be looking for a "Nursery" update coming your way soon :)
