16 more days (and counting)

We have just 16 more days till the scheduled c-section!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was a wild week last week. I didn't get to my weekly OB appointment. My scheduled appt was interrupted as Dr. Ryan was delivering another baby. My rescheduled appt was cancelled because Dr. Ryan was sick. I would not reschedule for Wednesday because I had a massage scheduled. And anything after that would be way too close to today's scheduled appt.

My massage was wonderful. My friend, Kelly, gave it to me as a belated birthday gift. She's such a sweetie. I had been complaining to her about my aches and pains and wanting a massage. I was by no means hinting to her but she's got a giving heart and within an hour of me complaining, emailed me saying "schedule your appt. It's paid for. Happy belated birthday!" It was great! I wish I could get a massage on a regular basis.

I had a good day working around the house on Saturday. Unfortunately, in doing so, I missed a buddy's wedding. I knew that the hour drive to the wedding would be rough on my aching hips and back. So, I opted to stay home and get things done. I had to lay down for a while after my shower because my hip was hurting so bad. I almost didn't go to the reception either. But we made that, visited with friends, dealt with a tired child and left.

Made it back to town just as the band was getting through their set before the message started. It was the summer kick-off event for our local contemporary church service. My son had a blast in the park. He ran around in the back and played with Chi-Chi (7 mos) during the message and then rocked out to the songs at the end. It was so stinkin' cute! Afterwards, he even had to go up to the lead singer who he knows real well and keep singing the last song to him. It was precious!

I slept almost 10 hours on Saturday night. 10 hours! It was glorious! And to top it off, I even took a nap yesterday during the baseball game. Go Cardinals!

Scott is finally feeling better. Coughing occassionally and a bit of a runny nose but otherwise back to normal. He played on the swing set that his dad finally finished (there was over 100 steps to putting it together), climbed the stairs and did all kinds of little boy things without incident this weekend! The two fun stories must be included of course:
1. He was watching a baby blue jay when my mini Aussie grabbed it up in his mouth and ran off with it. Scott was quite surprised and fortunately doesn't understand the end result.
2. He tried to change the diaper of his little stuffed animal cow yesterday. He had the wipes out and was trying to figure them out, had the cow sprawled open on his back in the window sill and was asking for a diaper. It was too cute. Maybe he will take to this big brother idea fairly well.

Oooo I had a "Dr. Ryan" with the birth of my baby boy! :)

LOL about changing the cow's diaper. Brenna has a cow that she loves and it, too, has worn diapers. I'm sure he'll be a terrific big brother!

Question about the scheduled C-section. Was Scott a C-section? I ask because Brenna was an emergency C so Caelan was scheduled. I breezed through the surgery with Brenna but with Caelan (who was 3 1/2 weeks early- so much for scheduling!) I had a panic attack as they were closing me. It was the most awful feeling I have ever experienced. Not sure what the difference was unless it was because I was so exhausted after being in labor with Brenna that I was practically asleep!
