It's the most wonderful time of the year

I get today and Monday off, Yay!
I'm spending the next two days in the hospital visiting my mom who decided she needed to have a hysterectomy on Wednesday. Boo.

She's doing fine, she's just in a lot of pain. She said it compares to childbirth....
Way to scare the beejeesus out of me mom. I wasn't planning on having a c-section, now I'm not so sure.

I've tried looking for sites that describe the physical pain of childbirth, but I've been unsuccessful in finding them. Maybe it's a sign I don't need to know until I get there.

I got to hear my baby's heartbeat for the first time last Thursday. It was amazing, I could have listened to that all day. :)

I was told my blood pressure was a little high and that I needed to get that under control. Just one more way I'm failing as a parent. Nice. I can't even be not stressed out for 9 months to let this baby grow healthy.

I feel like every time I go to the doctor I'm stepping into a confessional. Here I am, ready with my list of questions and when the doctor asks me if I have any, I spring them on him before he can take the question back.

I had a glass of pop that wasn't caffeine free.
I keep waking up and finding I'm laying on my back.
I've been eating waaaay more carbs than is allowed.

You know, things like that. My doctor just looks at me and tells me I'm fine. And of course I think of 20 more things AFTER I leave.

After my appointment last week I broke out in a rash that night and googled it to see what it could be/mean. BIG mistake. I diagnosed myself with a liver problem. Nice. So after I called the OB's office and they told me they can't treat me for a rash and that the doctor doesn't think there is anything wrong with my liver, I hear them laughing as I hang up...
I think I'm known as the crazy pregnant women there.

Ok, off to pick up my dad and sister and head to the hospital to visit my mom. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year, and I hope Santa brings you everything you wished for!!!!

    I think the pain is so different for every person which is why there is no way to describe it. No matter how hard or easy it was, every woman I know who had given birth has said they forget the pain as soon as they are holding their baby.

    Hope you and Aaron have a very Merry Christmas and a joyus New Year.

    We need to invent some sort of pillow that hugs us on both sides so we stop rolling onto our backs every night! Hope you and Aaron had a great Christmas! I thought hearing the heartbeat was awesome too, I wished I couldve recorded it so I could listen over and over again!

    Don't worry about the physical pain. God doesn't give you more than you can handle. Ephedirals are da bomb, and you forget about it as soon as you see that tiny little face!!!
