So I read today, that if you post in your blog daily, more people will visit. You know, that actually makes sense. Because the blogs I actively read, are the ones that post daily. Duh! So, I'm thinking more posting is in order.
Xaelen is over his cold/virus/diarrhea thing he had. Now if his 4 canines can PLEASE hurry up and pop through, we'd be golden. They look very swollen and as if they will erupt at any moment. Maybe this weekend?
Xaelen also visited SeaWorld yesterday. He apparently loved the penguins, the flamingos and most importantly SHAMU! He watched the entire Shamu show and constantly exclaimed "Whoa!" every few minutes. He had a cracker in his hand and his mouth open as though he was going to put it in, but was so distracted by the wondrous Shamu that it never quite made its way in.
Xaelen also visited the cardiologist this week. After a chest x-ray, a EKG, and a short physical - he was declared perfect! Well shucks, I could have told them that! The murmur turned out to be just a garden variety type and poses no risks to him. Woohoo! We also learned that Xaelen is an amazing patient. He let the doctor probe him, stick EKG thingies on him, take his x-ray, all without flinching and all without crying. Now I ask, how do we make that happen at home? I can't even change his diaper without having to have a WWF smackdown occur on the floor. I think he likes an audience, so as long as someone is observing him, he's on his best behavior. I obviously need to invite more people over to "observe" him.
I visited with the OBGYN this week as well. We still have a heartbeat! Hallelujah! I'm measuring 9 weeks and 1 day today. Great! Fingers crossed. The only bad thing was the subchorionic hemorrhage was still present and somewhat larger than last time. The doctor is hopeful that it will be reabsorbed by my body sometime between now and 20 weeks. Let's all think good thoughts, ok?
I've also visited a few doctors who are open to the idea of a VBAC. Both are allowing me to try, but I have to say, with so many rules and restrictions placed upon me, I'm wondering how VBAC friendly they really are. Both have said they won't let me go a day past my due date and will automatically schedule me for a RCS on my due date. Hmmm.. I'm just not sold on them.
I have one more opinion to go. A certain wonderful doctor who's been referred by everyone and their mother. I kid you not. This man is supposed to be the end all-be all of VBAC doctors. The only draw back is that his office is about 30 miles from my home. But hey, if he can help me with my desired birth - then I'll drive to the end of the world and back. My appointment is scheduled for January 10. Please let this be the one!
I guess that's it for now. I'm working on posting some new pictures and new video of Xaelen. Still learning.
Giving Up Flour and Eating Fried Bread by Ree - Happy Monday, friends! This was taken while we were filming our new season of Food Network shows. I had lots of fun, and guess what I did? The day we start...
