First non-stress test

Just a brief update tonight...
I had my first non-stress today. Kymber passed but is still breech. It sounds like if she stays that way that I will be heading for a c-section.
They monitored my oxygen level which remained good.
The only hiccup (besides her position) is that she has a little bit of a weird heart rhythm right now. I will be seen every friday so they will be monitoring her rhythm as well. I am praying that will resolve itself.
I am exhausted tonight so I am gonna close out.
Have a great weekend!

Sneak peek

Here are a few snippets of Kymber's room.
I was initially overwhelmed trying to figure out how to make a blue/green room girly but it has started to come together.
I cannot wait to sew the bedding but will have to hold on until I am feeling better and able to sit for longer periods of time.
Hope you enjoy what I have so far!

35 weeks

Today marks 35 weeks gestation.
I started the day off trying to catch up a little bit in the house. I got the kitchen cleaned up and dinner in the crockpot before I had to rest for an hour.
I went to get a few more baby items after that before heading to physical therapy.
Miss Kymber flipped briefly on Monday after my chiropractor appointment but flipped back on Tuesday. Leanne (my physical therapist) and I believe she has flipped head down again after the session today. I can still feel her bottom the way it should be so hopefully she will stay that way.
I see the chiropractor again tomorrow so hopefully keeping my hips in balance will keep her head down!
My NST's (non-stress tests) start on Friday. I will find out about my cardiology appointment on Friday as well.
Trying to focus on the joy of bringing Kymber into the world, we had a family pregnancy shoot on Sunday and I will be completing the shoot this Friday.
In addition to the maternity photo shoot, I needed to do something crafty (to bring me joy) as I haven't been able to sew at all in over 2 weeks. (I have an addiction to crafting.....I must admit) I made a wreath for our front door with pink flowers in honor of our new little girl. (Pictures below)
It was 15 minutes of pure joy and some of the best therapy to lighten my mood.
Stay tuned for more JOY in regards to Miss Kymber.

My funny Valentine

Ben and I at the end of our Valentine's night.
I love my sweet, funny Valentine.
He has been rock solid these past couple of months.

Small joys of the weekend

*baby gifts in the mail
*the dogs playing together and in seemingly good health
*the kids enjoying each other and calling one another their "best friends"
*reading together on a long weekend
*Geronimo still being himself and here with us.
(All pictured here!)
We also had family pictures, movie afternoon, a great life group time, and a little work at home!

Huge monster baby update

Today was my growth ultrasound for Miss Kymber Mae. (AKA huge monster baby)
I thought that I would write a post to let everyone know what has been going on here.
First of all her stats:
She weighs approximately 6 lbs 6 oz
Her measurements put her at 36 weeks and 2 days. (I am only currently 34 weeks and 2 days.)
Heartbeat was 160 BPM
She is still in breech position.
Everything is fine with Kymber. She looks healthy and is maturing the way she should. They are not changing my due date (it is still March 28th) but just saying she is a big girl.
I unfortunately have been in pretty excruciating pain and very miserable. I guess I will start at the top and work my way down for y'all.
I have remained dizzy & lightheaded for the last 2 weeks (super fun when trying to take care of daily family life.)
My shortness of breath has been much worse along with serious chest tightness/pain/discomfort. I have also been battling nausea again on top of the heartburn/reflux thing.
I have been going to physical therapy once a week to manage the hip and back pain. I have problems with both hips now (one is externally rotated and one internally rotated) I also have a hip impingement going on. I have also messed up my sacral area (probably in trying to compensate for the hip pain.) There is an upslip in my right lower back as well. I now have one leg that is about an inch longer than the other. Therapy has been helping but not enough to allow me to function in daily life chores.
I will also be adding a weekly chiropractor appointments into the regimen to try to bring some added comfort.
To wrap all that up with a pretty bow, I am really a miserable mess. I am grumpy even when I am trying not to be. I could cheerfully hibernate for the next few weeks.
I remain thankful to Ben who fortunately takes his vows of in sickness and in health very seriously. I couldn't have done this without his help.
I am also so very thankful for all the friends and family checking in on me. I greatly appreciate all that you guys have done.
For those of you who don't know me well but have been praying for comfort, the baby, and I, well I also really appreciate y'all too!
I thought that I would type all this out to avoid having to repeat the same old sob story over and over.
I lose sight of the fact that this is only temporary and soon I will have the best present (and relief.)
So stay tuned and I hope old Jamie will return very soon!
Oh and I got a very blurry face shot of Kymber for you today too!

A look into Kendall's World

So I did a tribute to Isaac a few days ago and I figured that on this rainy afternoon that I would get you caught up on our sweet Kendall Bug.
All of these pictures are from my iphone as well. (Hence the quality is not always the best.)
Kendall has been enjoying her year at kindergarten. She really loves her classmates and learning. It is hard to believe that we are already 2-nine weeks in to the school year all ready! Soon we will have a first grader on our hands.
Kendall and I waiting at the airport
Kendall at a local production of the Nutcracker
She loves to make silly faces!
Kendall is very much enjoying her combination ballet/tap class. She will have her first BIG recital in May. They got their costumes yesterday and she is in love!
Soccer season also starts back up tomorrow.
Happy Ground Hog day!!
Occassionally I can still get a snuggle or two off of her!
Kendall's winter mini-tap recital
She is in love with barbies, dolls, & her doll house
Music student of the month at Parkwood
Did I mention that she still loves to dress-up
She loves to be a big helper.
So far she can help put the dishes away, empty the dryer for me, put some clothes away, & of course vaccum a little bit.
Kindergarten is hard work!
She loves to have her picture taken too. Just in case you couldn't tell!
She can sleep anywhere just like her father!
She is game for trying out new hairstyles
She has been Aggie brain-washed
Kendall fills my life with laughter and joy!
