Baby love :)

As you may recall from my last post on February 3rd we had a bit of a scare and were told to expect the baby ( due march 17th) any day. Fast-forward to February 29th my dr still assured me everything was still a go for a VBAC and baby's head was down an ready to go. He wanted me to go for an ultrasound just to check the weight since if the baby was over 8lbs then we might  have to go for another c section. I was lucky enough to get in for an u/s the very next day. However the tech informed me at my appointment that the baby was transverse. Head under my left ribs and feet over at my right side. So the OB had no idea what he was talking about when he said the baby was head down. I called my dr's office right away and informed them of the u/s/ The next day i was back at my drs who double checked the techs results and yep the baby was transverse and I would have to have another c section. I was beyond crushed and terrified. The c section was booked for March 10th. by that day the baby was a double footling breech and I was rushed to the OR to get the little bugger out. We went in at 3:30pm 

and


 at 4:15pm this little boy was born

We are over the moon in love with him (even lil pickle loves him)

I ended up having a surprise 5.5cm hernia discovered during the c section that was repaired at the same time. in addition to recovering from two surgeries i also ended up getting an infection in my incision. So the road to recovery has been a little slow,but on a whole I think better than the first time around. Although I was crushed that I had to have another c section sometimes God does have a plan.

Use it or lose it 12/02/16



I've been hard at work not successfully using it, however I haven't been losing it either. Unless you count my mind cause I really feel like I have been losing that recently..lol  We are still on baby watch, however I think things have settled down and the little guy or gal is going to stay in for a bit longer. Watch me go past my due date.....lol and argh

I have been trying to get things done around the house just in case the baby comes early. We still don't have the nursery ready, however the baby will in our room for the first few months so i focused on getting our room ready. Its now ready.

I think we have everything we need ready to go and if we don't they do have stores we can buy things at. Who knew, right...lol

I started making my freezer meals this week two. I made two Baked Penne and one Pork tenderloin in cream gravy with noodles. My mother has next week off and my hope is to get at least 15 meals made.

Used it
In making the baked Penne I used
2lbs of our farm ground beef
1 jar stewed tomatoes
1 jar tomato sauce

I also used one jar of salsa this week. (secretly addicted to baked potato with cheese and salsa on top)


Lose it

So far this week has been pretty good. I might have to throw out a few oranges come garbage day on Saturday. But for the most part we have been really good at using up our leftovers. AKA making lil pickle eat them...lol


Thanks for stopping by
