My hands, arms, legs, feet and face have been swollen since about 5 weeks pregnant-I assume due to my blood pressure. I have not been able to wear my wedding rings since then-I still TRY to get them on every few days-(I KNOW, I'm DREAMING). This is as far as they go :(
I decided it was high time I had AT LEAST a 4 carat ring. SO, I got myself on EBAY and found the below ring in China for ...get this....$7.99 INCLUDING SHIPPING! I figured if I was going to go fake, may as well go BIG RIGHT?????
I just don't like going out not wearing some type of ring while I'm pregnant-maybe I'm a weirdo??
AND YES LADIES, I HAD THE CAPTAIN RE-PROPOSE-the kids got a kick out of that!
Speaking of going out...I won't be doing much of that. After my OB appointment this week, I am to "lay low" and not leave the house for more than an hour or 2 unless I can keep my feet up. The good news is that the protein in my urine went down from 856 to 182. I also now have OB visits every 2 weeks. The Captain has put me on LOCK DOWN and is doing EVERYTHING for me-it just makes my heart happy to be spoiled by him. The doctor told him I shouldn't do ANYTHING strenuous and he is taking it VERY SERIOUS! He did take all 8 of us to Sonic last night after supper on the grill for some ice cream-the little things mean so much!
Here is Nineya's profile picture at 24 weeks 2 days-she is absolutely PERFECT!
We are thankful to God for every moment she gets to "bake" in my tummy.
Yesterday was a big day for the little girls..They both their pre-k shots. 5 each....I ALMOST had a nervous break down. My My got so worked up she puked several times before the shots. AND OF COURSE, I BAWLED TOO! GLAD THAT'S OVER! The Captain has agreed to take anyone else who needs shots, including Nineya-my heart just can't take it!
Aw-Bell has been excited that her birth mother was due to get out of prison mid-February. She was going to move about 30 minutes from us and we were all looking forward to getting together. Apparently she had some more charges so the day she was due to get out of prison, they transferred her to jail where is now being held. We are faithfully writing her in jail and the kids enjoy drawing pictures to mail out to her.
Aw-Bell has not seen her birth mother since she was delivered over 4 years ago and it's time. If she is in for quite a while longer we may go for a visit to ease her little mind.
