Considering going private

I have been seriously thinking about going private.Not due to any drama or anything but because I don't really think I have anyone who is still truly following and or commenting.And who can blame you as I was MIA for so long.I guess I kinda feel like if there are no active readers that I really would like to not have this blog just out there for anyone to find online.Don't get me wrong I have met some wonderful people through this blog. And truly love that I have had it to connect with people but again I just feel like it is a big piece of my life that is very public.I will not just go private if I do I will give a heads up.I will let invited readers still follow if I am aware that you want to.Just contact me and let me know.

Yup I was MIA again.But honestly I have a good excuse.One word COLIC! It was really bad with stretches of unconsolable crying that could last from anywhere from 4-7 hours with small breaks for her eat in between. We tried everything even the chiropractor for her. The small dose of zantac was started about 7 weeks ago seems to be helping along with time.I think it is partially getting better due to us basically waiting it out.Now that she is doing better it does allow me to actually use the computer from time to time. Now for the details she was born on May 4th at 12:42 am. She was 6 pounds 8 oz and 19 1/4 inches long. I had a much better birth experience this time. So much better than last time even though my labor was more painful.She arrived after 10 minutes of pushing.I did have an epidural again which was much more effective this time.My recovery this birth was much better and I seemed to have dodged the ppd bullet this time.I did indeed try to change my circumstances in hopes of avoiding it although I know sometimes no matter what you do it cannot be avoided. This time I planned a transfer so that I would be due in springtime rather than in the dark winter months like last time.( I am in Michigan)I also changed OBGYN's,hospitals and dr offices in order to avoid a bad birth experience again.Which this time was so much better my OBGYN actually came in for me even though it was her night off.She knew I was scared of having a bad experience and wanted to help me have a better one.And I did :-)I also really tried to watch how much weight I put on this pregnancy so I didn't have as much to lose.I do need to lose it still :( But atleast this time after I gave birth I only have about 15 pounds pregnancy weight and 10 pounds fertilty med weight to go when last time I had about 18 pounds fertility med weight and 41 pregnancy weight to lose after giving birth. I have joined an excercise class and am planning on joining another. I am so in love with my little girl and can't believe that I have a daughter! Her brothers are crazy about her and of course so is daddy! Well I should go for now my little girl is a calling but I will leave you with some photos of her!These were all taken the first 3 days after she was born.I will post more recent ones soon.

It's time!!

To say that I have been a very bad blogger is a huge understatement.I was admitted to the hospital about 2 weeks ago overnight for kidney stones. That was excruciating.I have spent the last week or so healing from that. I now am readmitted as it is time for our little girl arrive.I have had worse labor this time than with our little nanner.I now have an epidural which is helping. Sorry so short.But it's almost time to get ready for her arrival :-)
