Quick update: We had a girl!! So happy to announce the safe arrival of our beautiful little girl Sophie Pamela James born at 2:43pm and weighing 6 lbs 15. Bit out of it and so tired but will do full update tomorrow. Xx
Things didn't quiet go to plan but I did have a vbac with a bit of help.
OMG....I am a total mess today. I got up early to make my family cheese biscuits and Ian snubbed them and ate a cookie instead. I got so angry that I started crying and probably have not stopped since. I have zero energy and motivation today and I walked into the living room to find my 2 year old in her pajamas with a wet diaper and the candy I had gave her spilled all over the floor. *I gave her candy that she found in the cupboard because I was too self absorbed to argue with her over whether or not she could have it. I gave her maybe 15 smarties and hid the rest. I haven't dressed her yet because she needs a bath and I am waiting until after her nap to have her bath. Her diaper is wet because I haven't changed her since her last drink.* And all I could think was "You are a complete and utter failure at life. This baby is going to suffer because you can't get your shit together." I know it's hormones, and I know I am just having a bad day but WOW I am a mess plain and simple.
I have these bad days normally when I am suffering from PMS. I feel like the whole third tri is like the longest bout of PMS possible. I normally have one bad day and get over it, and move on but lately it has been occurring more and more. I am already per-disposed to PPD especially after the incredible mess I went through last time. I just think that this is a sign I will definitely need to be medicated after birth this time as well.
congratulations Luce! I seen the pictures on facebook and Sophie is beautiful! I hope everything is going well for all of you and you are adjusting to life with a baby again!
Allie, that is quite exciting! Please do keep in touch with us still when you move
Gibs, I was hungover one time and allowed Kash to eat chips for breakfast! Not my best moment, but you just want to survive the day at times. It's life
I am heading to Edmonton tomorrow to pick up Gord from the airport, and then we are spending the night at Fantasyland Hotel. I still can't get over the fact that I am paying $300 for one friggin night, but it will be worth it to make Kash happy (and have the ability to go back to the room with ease when needed - it's inside West Edmonton Mall for those that don't know). I am going to take Kash on the rides at Galaxyland (gotta enjoy it as much as possible before he turns 3 and it costs me lol), and shop around the mall. Then Saturday we will drive half way home, and home the rest of the way on Sunday. Gord has a cleaner coming Sunday to clean up his messes while I was away, so that's why we are taking our time getting home lol.
Riley has been sleeping amazingly, and I am hoping he keeps this up when we get home. When he woke this morning, I looked at the time and was like no f'ing way! It was 7:08am! He was asleep by 10:30 or earlier last night! usually he has been going to about 5:00am, but last night he surpassed that! woohoo! I am getting used to getting 6 hours of sleep or more at a time in the night, and if he goes back to every 3 hours when we get home, I am going to die!
I am just trying to pack up what I can right now and then I will load the truck tonight...then the last few things in the morning. It's going to be bittersweet to get home! Although I am only home for 2.5 weeks and then I take Kash to see Dora lol!
Where is everyone? Have you all started a cool new club without me? LOL
At the moment I am SO mad with my sister I can't even think straight. So she got pregnant. No big deal. I thought it was pretty awesome to have another niece or nephew. Her husbands sister is also pregnant and my sister said 'I feel like shes stealing my thunder." Now I have never understood this feeling because I have never had it. This will be my sisters third baby and her SIL's first. I don't think any thunder will be stolen here. Not to mention that if anyone's thunder was under threat it should be mine. Well they have delayed telling everyone for some bizarre reason she was waiting until her 20 week ultrasound. Which was today. So I texted her asking what the baby is and details. Her answer was "Were not telling people." I said "R U friggin serious?" she said "yes" I said "Why?" and she wont bother answering me. So I asked my mother. Mom said that she doesn't want his sister to find out because it will be a competition with her and that they don't want the stress. So somehow I get screwed out of finding out if I am having a niece or nephew because she is jealous of her husbands sister. *annoyed face*
