Dang, so sorry I just took off and left you guys.
I had my baby (of course) ha!!
You have to hang on though… there will be pictures, but just wait I have to update you first!
7 Months pregnant and my daughter was in the hospital, then packing… 8 months pregnant I was moving and unpacking.
I had my baby boy Grayson April 7th: 6:57, 7lbs even. I was 39 weeks pregnant. Ironically, I had Jade at 39 Weeks on a Sunday as well. Go figure 😉
As to now, everything is up and down.
I was up every 2-3 hours for 3 months, 3 months I was on the couch sleeping. Grayson wasn’t sleeping well and had (still does) acid reflux. I couldn’t lay him anywhere but in his swing. Finally moved the swing in his room and now I am getting to sleep in my own bed, who knew!? Do you know how much you miss your bed when you go on vacation? So yeah, I was in heaven. There was days all I wanted to do was sink deeper into that mattress but Grayson would cry a little louder if I wasn’t tending to him within the 30seconds he gave me, lol!
Grayson is now 4 months old, we have went through 4 different formulas and we have landed on Soy. I didn’t know that if Milk Protein/Lactose would cause a baby to strangle, and have such bad stomach pains. No wonder I never got sleep. However, he is happy now. He is eating 6oz at a time, and is sleeping in his bed during the day, and trying to get him adjusted at night. We have a doctor’s appointment the 26th for a specialist. He also has torticollis, which is a wry neck or loxia, is a symptom defined by an abnormal, asymmetrical head or neck position, which may be due to a variety of causes. (I personally think it is from that dang swing) However, I have been doing exercises on him, he can now at least turn some on the left side, but he isn’t fully where he needs to be. I will update on him once we get back from the doctor.
Well, as yall know Jade has severe food allergies to tree nuts. We found out May 2012. She was 4 years old at time. She has started school now, and my stress raises to people being absolutely closed minded about how severe it can be. I have now reached out to a Doctor in Atlanta and I will be calling in the morning first thing to get her an appointment. He said he would update her 504 Plan. 504 Plan is a plan for children who have a life threatening condition. Also in the State of Georgia she is under a disability.
We are also going to the FARE Walk September 29th in Atlanta. I think it would be a great learning experience with her, as well to educate us further. I think it will also be beneficial to have other support groups in our area. If you would like to make a donation I will leave a link at the bottom of my post.
The girl I spoke to also said that Jade may even need to go to a GI Care for Kids, because she may have more allergies that attack her gut system. Hints her being in the hospital last March, or so, with a 103.5 fever that stayed high for 6 days.
As for me…
I started back with my weight loss goal. However, in the past 3 weeks I haven’t been able to do what I use to.
I started exercising in May, June I was exercising 1hr 30mins/day 5 days a week, by July I couldn’t do it anymore. I started getting light headed, my mouth would go completely dry, my vision would get blurry and during one of my personal training days I actually got sick to my stomach. Everyone thinks it may be my blood sugar, but I eat before I go, and I drink water while I am there. I even grab a banana during breaks. I also don’t get the spotted vision, so who knows what is up with that.
Doctor told me it could be stress related as well as hypoglycemia so we will see. I am still waiting for the blood test results from last week. However, I have lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks. Doctor called it the Stress Diet.
Just so much going on since the baby has been born, and the lack of sleep. I probably should be sleeping now but I wanted to share with you guys what I have been doing, as well as show yall pictures.
I hope each one of you are doing something you enjoy, and never let a day go by that you don’t live to your fullest.
