Been out of sorts not only with the infections but had a reaction to one of the meds so I've been itching my way to healing. The good news is that I'm starting to feel better.
This pregnancy has kept me on my toes. Very DIFFERENT from my last pregnancy. With Jackson's pregnancy I felt my best was at my lowest weight and it was just lovely. With our Amelia though...I've been sick with infections, nausea, migraines, had a stitch put in, weekly injections, several hospital visits and weekly Dr.'s visits. It's been a roller coaster of events, but I wouldn't take it back for the world! As long as our sweet darlin is safe and healthy, all the illness and setbacks were worth it. Not to mention it's a gift from God that not only we have her, but that He's gotten us through each trying event. To God be the glory!
This week, I'm having fun! I've been Dr. shopping and finally narrowed it down to 3 Dr.'s. One Ped's multi-practice, one Ped's single practice and one GP Dr. with a more natural approach and is pro parent decision as well as okay with an alternative vax scheduling.
I could NOT believe the difference in Vax's since I've been a kid. Adding new ones and some can be pretty harsh on our little ones systems not to mention the ones that haven't been studied for long periods of time. Obviously the ones I support are for Amelia's general health and well being. The others though, it will be a matter of weighing the pro's and con's. Some of which are better if she actually catches the issues and it's dealt with meds THEN versus the side effects of some of the Vax's later. For the most part though, I think I'm looking at an alternative Vax schedule and NOT having too many at once performed on Amelia.
The other appointment scheduled is the consult with NICU. IF Amelia does need them, we want to know who they are and be on the same page with what their intentions are. So I think meeting them ahead of time will help me relax and just allow God to work with whatever needs to be done.
The furniture also comes off layaway at the end of the month. So exciting!
As I stay here on bed rest, I look forward week by week to holding this little kiddo. I love her very much already. I can't IMAGINE how much more I'll love her when I see her. Already it's FUN to feel her kicks. Just an AMAZING part of this beautiful experience and I thank God for answered prayers.
Happy Summer Everyone!
