Big Update....

So, I know you have all been waiting with baited breath to hear the results from Kent's scan... Today was his follow-up and everything looks just fine, no tumor growth, and no new tumors. They did have concerns about his Blood Pressure though, just as the pediatrician did, so they are recommending that we see a Nepherologist (Kidney Doc). He also had a terrible urine sample so they wanted a new one, I am sure it will be just as bad as the last one, and they will need to put him back on antibiotics again. Of course all of that could have been avoided if he would just follow the right way of disinfecting all of his supplies like I taught him to... but alas, he is 16, and we all know that you cannot tell a 16 year old anything!!! UGH!!! For the most part they are happy with his progress, so we don't have to go back for a year, unless something comes up.

As for little Miss Turtle, I had an OB appointment last week, and my BP was a little up, we talked about the fainting, normal for this far she says, just be careful. Weight was down, so I told her that I have been really concerned about my lack of girth... (funny for a pregnant woman I know) but my waist has been at 39 inches for almost 2 months now, and then with the loss of weight, I am just worried about Turtle's size. I also let her know about what looked to me like a lack of fluid when we had our 3-D so she told me that she was more then happy to send me for a little U/S to check on our girl.....

Well, that U/S was this morning before our appointment with Kent, and the Turtle looks to be doing just fine. I am 33 weeks 3 days, and she weighs about 4 pounds 12 ounces, and measuring right on schedule. Just the right amount of fluid. She is also still head down, "engaged nicely" according to the tech. I kinda knew she had slid further into my pelvis, because I have been getting spasms in my urethra (TMI I know) from the pressure. Clark is freaking out saying he will get a "Chip Clip" and put it down THERE to keep her in a little longer!! LOL !! He is such a mess. They won't do anything to stop labor after 34 weeks anyway, so he may be fighting a loosing battle!! I told him she will come out when she is ready, and there is nothing that we can do about it, but you know how men are, they HAVE to TRY to control everything!! I do honestly hope that she stays put until after Christmas though, because one of the gifts that we have for the grandmothers has to do with birthstones, so having already bought the one for January, I would have to exchange them all!! LOL!! Besides, I am so not ready for her yet emotionally... I never thought I would say that, but every since I got the 3-D I want her here so that I can see that little face in person, but Iam also scared out of my mind that I am so gonna freak the hell out once she is here, and we all know once they are here there is no going back!!! Good grief, I am just a mess about this whole thing!! On one hand I am so ready for this, but on the other I sit here some days and ask myself what in the hell I was thinking!!! I mean come on, I have a 16 year old who mostly takes care of himself, I can sleep in, come and go as I please w/o having to worry about spending an hour getting a baby ready..... yada, yada, yada.... So what in the HELL am I thinking??? I still haven't figured that one out... I will let you know when I do!!!!!!!!!

First, I'm so glad to hear about Kent's scan going well and that there's no more tumor growth! I hope that the antibiotics get rid of any infections and that they are able to get his blood pressure under control easily.

Second, your last thought about Turtle sounded so much like what I thought when pregnant with P! It was a "What the hell were we thinking? What in the world are we getting ourselves in for?" mentality every other day. Some days I was thrilled, some days I was terrified. It all falls into place in ways you can't predict, but they'll turn out to be perfect for your family.

How is Kent feeling about the idea of having a baby sister, now that he's had time to get used to the idea?

I'm glad to hear that Kent's health is doing well with no serious problems. I'm also curious how Kent's doing with school and other problems, I hope that's gotten better.

Can you ever really be ready to be a parent? I think everyone just has to wing it!

Glad to hear Kent is ok & that you do not have to go back for another year.
Also, the feelings you have are completley normal. After every major thing in my life, I always sat & wondered WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING?! Everything will fall into place...after she is here...it just may take a few weeks for you to get your groove. Enjoy every second of it. Enjoy these last few weeks of your pregnancy too--I miss it so much. It's ok to freak out...but everything will be just fine...and happy! I'm so happy for you!
