Weeeeellll.......

A HUGE thank you shout out right now to Miss Gucci Mama! (Stephanie) I got a long letter a few days ago telling everything she had gone through with both babies' births which were c-sections. I got pros cons and the absolute nitty gritty truth. I'm one of those people who needs to know beforehand exactly what is going to happen. I need to be prepared. Which can be a bad thing and make me freak out but it's a risk I'm always willing to take. At least I know what will happen.
So I once again ventured out to the doctor's office today for my weekly appointment. My morning had been shot to hell already so why not take a trip there as well? LoL. I woke up to a cranky little girl. I blew her off, put on Dora and Diego and let her sit and watch cartoons for a bit. She told me she was hungry which was great as she hasn't eaten anything since breakfast yesterday morning. So I made us both cheesy eggs and when I had to fight her for 20 minutes because she refused to eat it made me angry. I worry about her not eating and then stress because I HATE throwing food out. So I told her that's what she'd eat for lunch and threw it in the fridge. Grumpy as all get up I went upstairs to get dressed and all of a sudden I hear my dad hollering at me to get downstairs so I threw on a random shirt and ran down to see what was going on and here my baby girl is puking up orange juice and crying. She didn't quite make it to the potty (I taught her early that mommy doesn't do puke at all and we do it in the potty so mommy doesn't have to clean it or see it). So I felt like bawling because I felt so bad and I cuddled her and gave her some seven up and made her a cute little bed on the couch for her to lay down. Secretly I love when she doesn't feel good because she wants me to cuddle her and rub her feet so it's pretty much Heaven for me. But during all of this my guilty conscience was screaming YOU'RE A HORRID MOTHER!! This would explain why she didn't want to eat...I feel so bad so she'll be pampered today and eat up every minute of it, LoL.
Meanwhile at the doctor's office I find out that yes Ignacio is being a stubborn brat and won't turn. He had turned on Saturday but went right back yesterday. But we talked about the c-section and I have only a teensy bit of nervousness left. I got my fears calmed down and my worries and wants out and acknowledged. I have a Soothie bottle that I bought a few days ago as I'm a lover of soothies and I told Dr that I don't want ANY bottles given to Nacio. When I had Hannah they ignored my anti-bottle wishes and fed her out of a bottle anyways and caused our issues with breastfeeding and the ever wonderful nipple confusion. I don't want to deal with that again...And I also requested baby be with me as soon as my tummy is closed up and come to find out my Dr is a big advocate of having baby with mommy as soon as the last stitch is in place. Sweet! So this is turning out to be a better deal than I thought. Oh and yes, the flu is going around. Greeeeat....
So all in all, today was a good day. I didn't get told that Nacio was flipped right but you know what? Hannah's birth being 2 hours long was a complete fluke thanks to being induced. That won't happen this time and so having the c-section guarantees me a half hour birth and no pain. Can't get much better than that right?? I plan on videotaping (sorry not talented enough to post that nor do I want vomiting to be my fault) But I do plan on putting up photos just because I'm one of those freaks who thinks photos of births are beautiful. But I'm totally excited for this! 3 1/2 more weeks! @3 more days... Now if I can only get off my duff and get the rest of the baby stuff, we'd be all good. LoL.
So there's my baby update. I'm feeling the heat already and should go throw my dishes in the dishwasher before I pass out from being sleepy. I'm spacing out at the wall as well so it's time to meander in do my dish thang and go lay down. Hannah is sleeping I might as well too, haha. I hope you all are having a nice week so far. No flu or anything icky like that. And I shall blog another update....Well when there is something more to blog about, LoL. Until then,
Toodles!!

You're welcome;) All will be well.

Poor Hannah Pants! (Sometimes I add a "Pants" to people's names. Not sure why.) I hope she feels better soon. There's nothing more sad and pathetic than a sick toddler. Mine always says, "Mama fix it!" I wonder how long it will be before he realizes I can't fix everything with my magic mom powers...
