Doctors are so wish-washy!

So, I had another run to the hospital on Friday and the nurses and residents thought I was contracting and going into labor, but no go. I got sent home and went in this morning for my check-up. Baby is doing good and measuring 2 weeks ahead but because of all the strange symptoms I now have to go do NSTs(non-stress tests) and get AFI measurements. All to make sure I don't go into labor on my own. The worry before was if I could make it to 36 weeks and now we are told the hospital won't let me deliver until the 8th of June unless it's an emergency for me or the baby. ARRRGH!
They put me on bedrest so to keep me going until 36 weeks and now I have to go until June, no fair. It creates real problems because Eric leaves on the 14th for a seminar and I won't get home until the 12th. So I have to recoop., take care of a newborn, put my 2 older girls back in school on the 15th, and take care of the 3 younger ones all on my own for 5 days. Yeah right. Oh yeah, our house is completely full of stairs, the enemy for a C-section recooperation. I just love the doctors. They say I can only go early if something else goes wrong. So I'm put in the position of either recooperating on my own or wishing something goes wrong so I can have the baby early.
The doctors just don't know one way or another which is the best. My doctor would love to be able to deliver me at 37 weeks, but his hands are tied by the hospital. ARRRGH, is all I have to say! So that's what's going on here. It's very frustrating and I am so done being pregnant, but what are you going to do. So I'm just going to sit back and see what happens.
Thanks for reading my rant, hope all is well with all of you and enjoy the nice weather!

Cute Easter Kiddies

Our eldest child, who whenever she gets all dolled up all I can think is she is going to give Eric some headaches when she starts dating. She is the funniest girl though. Kaleigh saw her come up all dressed up and said how pretty she looked and Alexis's response was "yeah, whatever, I hate dresses!" You just have to laugh at the girl who so doesn't want to be a frilly girl.
Little Noah, who is always with a smile and a laugh. I love this little guy and his overwhelming amount of happiness all day and everyday. He is our family's little jokester and jester. He can make the grumpiest or sadest person leave his prescence in a smile and laughter.

Our sweet little Laney, loving her new Easter dress and how it makes her feel like a princess in a big castle. She is the sweetest little girl and loves dresses.



And here is Kaleigh, our little fairy. She lives in the clouds and make-believe world with her flightyness and love of everything. She is a very funny, caring, loveable little girl who was so excited to get a matching purse for her dress. She is the child who gives me headaches with her already love of BOYS! She is only 7 1/2 and is obsessed with boys, mama mia am I in trouble when she is a teenager.



Our handsome little guy who didn't mind dressing up for once. He usually refuses to wear nice clothes, but he knew it was Easter and wanted to wear his new, nice Easter clothes. I was glad, because it saved me from battling with him. He takes great pride in being the big boy and brother in the house.



Our cute little Easter bunch all dressed and ready to go to Grandma and Grandpa's church! They were excited to go and show off their outfits and their new haircuts. From what I understand they were very good for Eric at church and had fun. I was at home taking care of the new little one who should be here soon. I have a very fun, loving and cute family and am grateful for everyday that I have with them. I also have a very loving and wonderful husband who has helped me immensely these past months. He never complains and just says he doesn't mind doing things for me because he loves me. He's the most wonderful man and I am lucky to have him in my life. We hope you all had a wonderful Easter and hope nice spring weather will return soon.
