Caycen Rolled Over Last Night

Caycen finally rolled over last night! I couldn't believe my eyes, in fact, I made him do it two more times before I grabbed the phone and video camera! I will hopefully send a video soon with a pic or two! LOL So proud of my HUGE lil man! LOL

Clean Bill of Health~So Excited

We had our last appointment with the specialist on Tuesday morning. She checked his bowels and right kidney, his bowels are normal and his kidney has shrunk some more! Praise the Lord...thanks for your prayers everyone!

She also measured him again, he is now 7lbs and 13ozs...we will quickly be 8lbs or more!!!

I have had contractions since last Monday, and in fact this Monday about 2am I had consistant and hard contractions. Once I clocked them for an hour(8-9 minutes apart), I woke Shelby up and said we might be going to the hospital soon. Of course not~lol~by 4:30 they stopped...

So hopefully before our next appointment with my OB we will be posting pictures of Caycen!

love ya'll

Many thanks once again, all is well with baby Caycen...he has a clean bill of health and is expected anyday...his size and position in my uterus explains all the hip issues I have checks my cervix (TMI) on Thursday and warned it could send me into we have some things to do! Knowing my luck I will be preggers come the first week of August and have an 11 lb baby! OOOOOOOUUUUCCCHHHHH! LOL

Hi Friends!!!!

So many wonderful things to report!

I had another appointment with my specialist yesterday. Caycen's kidney has remained stable and his intestines are normal. In fact, his little bladder was full and the dr. decided that that the blockage was after his bladder in his urethra. So all it will take is a catheter to clear the extra tissue. Probably something they will do while he undergoes a circumcision (ouchy). Praise the Lord...I keep thanking him whenever Caycen moves in my enormous belly!
I have another follow up next week to see how big Caycen is. The specialist said that if he continues to do well inside I can wait until my body is ready and dialates on its own before going into the hospital. So as of now we are looking at the first week of August (latest 9th or 10th).
Oh and get this...I knew I liked my specialist! She walked in yesterday in some beautiful maroon Texas A&M scrubs! Of course I had to ask first, but indeed she is an Aggie...she even passed up an full ride for her undergrad to UT!!!! LOL She said both her 5 & 7 year old know all the yells and traditions of cool huh?
Savannah is changing like rapid fire! Last Thursday I was making dinner and cleaning up the kitchen when she came running in from her crib. Yep she had climbed out after her nap-never even heard her on the monitor (thankfully without hurting herself). So that night we started the big girl bed (already set up) and she has been there ever since. I will say that the first few nights were short ones(7-8 hours as opposed to 12 hours) and the first naps were half the time at best but we have found normality again! Yeah!
She has also started to not like her potty training may be before Caycen after all...but everything I've read said be prepared to redo it after a new sibling...we shall see...

Shelby and I are thankful, joyous home owners. It seems the chore of moving has overwhelmed us but we are enjoying it (if you can believe that-its such a blessing) The reality has hit me that we have to get it all done soon b/c Caycen is likely in 4 weeks...and I still have some school work to get done for my sub! YIKES>

Hope everyone is wonderful. Lots of love.
thanks for listening and all your support!

The specialist said Caycen's right kidney has actually shrunk some from 1.6 to 1.4! Praise the Lord! Thank you for your faithful prayers! His intestine shows no signs of distress and she admitted it was probably just his meconium beginning to build for his big debut...I can't wait!

I did however have 3 contractions, only 2 of which I felt while on the we had a fun trip to the L&D ward at Sierra...I was thrilled! LOL Good Times!

Our trip to VA/DC was great, Shelby and I really enjoyed our getaway but desperately wanted to be back home to finish setting up house! As cliche as it sounds "there's no place like home".

We were able to eat some fabulous sea bass and clam chowder ever! It was fun too b/c everyone was preparing for this weeks festivities to celebrate our amazing country's birthday!

Until next time...Happy Fourth of July!!!!!

Getting Settled

Well, we moved in this weekend...gosh it is so sureal...I can't believe we have a house and "all the fixin's"!
No doubt it is an exhausting experience! But sooooooo worth it!

Shelby leaves tomorrow morning bright and early for VA; a training seminar...I will catch up with him Wednesday...nice little get away!

Caycen is growing daily...I can feel his frustration as he tries to move ... anxious to see what my OB says on Tuesday and then the specialist next Monday...

Savannah is adjusting well, after we get back its into a big girl bed and potty time! YIPPEE!!!!

Our other babies, Major and Mazie are adjusting but I think Mazie is sad. She misses her carefree runs across 2 acres...Major is probably loving the cleanliness of "city life". LOL

That is about it...hope all is well with everyone else...keep us new posts lately!

love to all
