Getting settled

Sorry that I haven't blogged much recently I have just been a little busy adjusting... :) All in all things are going REALLY well, knock on wood. Brianna is sleeping SO well. We had one bad night where I think she must of had a tummy ache because she was just screaming for a while. I felt so bad for her and ended up with only 3 hours of sleep. Since then though she has been a saint. She is nursing like a champ and I swear I am making enough milk for triplets. I am pumping occasionally to relieve the pressure but I don't want to do it too much because I don't want my body thinking that I need this much milk all the time; you know the whole supply and demand thing. She only lost 5 ounces after birth which is great and we don't have to go back to the doctor until her two week appointment.

Audrey is doing really well with Brianna.... with us, well she has been a little whiny. She is adjusting and considering our schedule was anything but normal last week she is not doing too badly. This is our first day home just the three of us and I anticipate by the end of the week some of the extra rebelliousness with start to subside, hopefully. Even if it doesn't she isn't being unbearable so we are counting our blessings. She kisses Brianna about a million times a day and loves to give her the dollie she bought for her.

Saturday was actually really nice here and somewhat reminiscent of what Spring should be, if I remember correctly. :) It was in the 60's and sunny. We took the girls to the park by the fairgrounds. Audrey loved it and Brianna slept in her sling the whole time. It was nice to get out and I think Audrey really needed the family time. I forgot the camera so unfortunately no pictures. I am hoping the weather will start to get and stay better and there will be plenty more pictures of the girls outdoors very soon!

In other news Derek just found out he is being transferred to the Microsoft campus starting Tuesday. :( This sucks because the commute will be long and he will have the car. He sent an email to the guy who does all the placements for the company and we are hoping that the guy will have a heart and move him somewhere closer, or even back downtown Seattle somewhere. Pray HARD! We don't want to pay the gas prices for him to go to Bellevue everyday. UGH! Plus with a new baby I don't like being stranded without a car. Which brings me to our second big thing... we are going to try to find a reliable second car that we can get with our stimulus check so that I won't be stranded at home with two children... and will be able to easily get to all appointments that come with a new baby. So if you are the praying kind, we need your prayers now.

To end on an up note here are some pics of the kids:

This is Audrey in her elephant PJ's that her Aunt Nicole bought her. They came with slippers that she would NOT take off to go to bed. She loves elephants and wears these jammies every time I get them cleaned.

I just happened to get this picture of Brianna, not sure what she was doing/thinking here but it sure is cute!

This is Brianna sleeping in her awesome play yard that my Aunt DD bought us. She is like this most of the time. In fact because she sleeps so much when she is awake Audrey gets very excited. It is quite funny.

We're Baaaccck!

So long time no... blog?? Anyway! Here is the long awaited birth story of our little Brianna Rose. So our induction got rescheduled for Sunday, April 20, at 7 am. We went in and got hooked up and the nurse came in. She checked me and said that I hadn't made any progress since my appointment on Tuesday. She needed to call Dr. Quimby and find out if she wanted me to start right on the pitocin or if she still wanted me to have the Cervadil insert. I was bummed because the Cervadil insert is a 10 hour insert. They don't check you or do anything else for 10 hours. Which is why most of the time if they are going to do that they have you come in the night before so that you can sleep through most of it. Well, Dr. Quimby decided it would be best for me to have the Cervadil. It was for the best because if you start on the pitocin when your cervix isn't favorable to it then you can end up with a really long labor on pitocin. I didn't want that. And on the Cervadil I didn't have to be hooked up to IV and I could eat and go potty as needed. So they started the Cervadil at 8:30 am Sunday morning.

Around 1:30 I started to have regular contractions. Nothing big, but they were regular. They were uncomfortable but I would say that I was having extreme pain or anything. They felt like really bad PMS cramps. I got really excited by this but the nurse warned me that Cervadil contractions rarely amounted to more than just getting the cervix completely ready for pitocin. I have to admit that I didn't listen and did get my hopes up. She was right however. Anyway, Derek and I just sat in the hospital most of the day. We watched TV, movies, and our friends Matt & Delayna and their daughter came to visit for a while, as did some of our family. Overall the day didn't pass too slowly.

At 6:00 pm the nurse took out the Cervadil and checked me. She was right. My cervix was more favorable but I hadn't really made any progress. However, she did encourage me by saying the fact that I had been contracting regularly for four and a half hours at this point was good and meant it should go fairly quickly on the pitocin. I held on to this hope. I ate dinner and took a shower as this was my last chance for both before I got started on the pitocin. At 7 pm I got all hooked up and ready for the final stage of my induction. The contractions had never stopped and I was hoping that the pitocin would kick things into high gear.

At 8:00 I was really starting to feel uncomfortable. I asked the nurse to check me to see if I was far enough along for the epidural. I had been contracting without a break for 6.5 hours and really wanted to nap before this was all over. Well, my short fingered nurse (ouch), said she didn't think I had made any progress really, maybe just a little more effaced. She said I could get a shot of morphine to hold me over until the epidural. I reluctantly agreed because she made it sound like it would be a while before I would be dilated enough for it. Knowing that my body dilates faster on meds because I actually relax. So I got the morphine at about 8:20. She also told me Dr. Quimby would be in in a while to break my water. At about 8:45 Dr. Quimby came in and checked me. She said that I was 2 cm (can stretch to 3, ouch again) and about 65% effaced. She broke my water, more ouch, and told me I can get the epidural any time..... UGH!! The nurse looked a little sheepish. So I was a little frustrated that I had gotten the morphine. Anyway, I decided to hold out for the epidural since I had just gotten the morphine.

Around 10:30 the contractions were coming through even the morphine so I asked for the epidural which I got around 11:00. Sweet heavenly peace!! I was able to relax and sleep. Around then they actually turned off the pitocin because I was contracting so nicely on my own. They either didn't tell me or I, in my drug induced state, didn't hear them. So it was nice to learn that my body finished out on its own. Around 2:00 am, I started to feel a lot of pressure. I asked the nurse to check me and she suggested waiting until 2:30 because she had checked me at 1:15.... they don't like to a lot of internals after your water is broken because of the risk of infection. So at 2:30 she checked me and told me I was ready to go. However, so were 3 out of the 4 women who were currently laboring with me. Since I was on the epidural and not in any pain she said she would set everything up and call Dr. Quimby but I would have to wait until she was almost here to start pushing. I warned her that my daughter came in 30 minutes with me pushing every other contraction. She just smiled at me. I don't think she quite believed me. At about 3:00 she told me Dr. Quimby will be here in about 15 minutes, why don't we try a couple of "practice" pushes. So we got in position, I barely pushed and she told me to stop... the baby was right there. DUH!!

So Dr. Quimby shows up at 3:15 and two contractions later at 3:20 am on April 21, 2008, Brianna Rose was born. Weighing in at 7 pounds 11 ounces (Dr. Quimby said that was a little bigger than she thought Brianna would be - hallelujah for early induction) and measuring 20 inches long. She passed all her tests with flying colors and nurses like a champ. She is a great sleeper and tolerates Audrey's endless kisses. I couldn't be happier although it feels a little weird to know that I should technically still be pregnant. Hmm... oh well!

Here is a pic of our angel:

This was the photo taken by the hospital for the website. I will include more photos later but right now I have to go and feed the baby. YAY!

For all the moms

Derek forwarded this Calvin & Hobbes to me. He thought it was cute and so do I.

Birth story to come soon!

Friday, April 18, 2008


Well apparently everyone pregnant woman in Kitsap county decided to go into labor last night and today. Yesterday afternoon as I was getting things together the hospital called me to tell me that there was a big influx of patients and to call about 8:30 pm to make sure they would have a bed for me before going all the way down there. So I called and they told me that I would have to wait until this morning. Well, that really was okay with me because I wasn't looking forward to spending the night in the hospital. So I was supposed to call at 8:00 this morning to find out if I could come in at 9:00. Well they called me at 6:00 am to tell me that they had absolutely no beds available and to try calling around noon but I might not get in until SUNDAY! I was very upset. Then they called me around 6:30 am and said they talked to Dr. Quimby and she wants to reschedule it for Sunday and I can pick 7 am or 9 am. I picked 7 because it is not like I am going to sleep much the night before. So Derek took the day off for nothing but he is going to go in tomorrow so that should help financially. I am trying not to be too disappointed but I really am. I had it all planned out perfectly and even had people coming in from out of town to see us and now it isn't going to happen for two more long days. *sigh* Oh well. Just thought I would let anyone who might read this know.

The Big Day....

So tomorrow is the big day, EEK! I have spent the last three days trying my best to prepare A) myself, B) my daughter C) my husband D) my house. I think I have done pretty good with B, C, and D.... I think I used them as a distraction from A - me! I haven't really dwelled on it too much because I didn't want to freak out and I didn't want to NOT sleep for three days. Today I went grocery shopping and to Target for a few last minute things, and to stock up my bare cupboards.

It hit me that it was my LAST time out with just me and Audrey. I bought her a donut and we sat and chatted at Wal-mart for about 20 minutes. I almost got teary-eyed. She is my baby and only for about another 24-36 hours. It is very bittersweet and emotional for this pregnant woman. I really don't want her to ever feel left out or pushed aside - I think that is what I am most afraid of, even more than pushing a human being out of my hoo-haa. As excited as I am to bring this new baby home I am really going to miss her not being my baby. I just pray that she has a smooth transition and loves the baby and doesn't resent her or get jealous - although I know not to expect her never to. I know that when my hormones and body start to get back to normal (or the new normal) everything will be fine but I am really emotional about it all right now.

ANYWAY----- didn't mean for this to become a rambling post about my fears. This will be last post before we become a family of FOUR! AHH. I really am excited. I hope and pray that the delivery is smooth and fast. Think of me and we will definitely be updating with some pictures as soon as we can.

Here is one last belly picture for this pregnancy:

April 18, 2008

That will most likely be the birthday of our new addition. Yep, Friday is the big day. We FINALLY got it all set up. I am going to the hospital late Thursday night to get set up and have a suppository applied to my cervix that is supposed to soften it and finish effacing me, as of this morning I was 1 cm and 50% effaced... which is what I was when my water broke with Audrey. The cervadil, the suppository, won't start contractions or anything it will just prepare me for the pitocin the next day.

Anway, then Friday morning Dr. Quimby is going to come in a break my water and start the pitocin. I am really not looking forward to being on pitocin again but I am anxious to have the whole labor thing behind me. I am happy that I am not going to be laboring through the night like last time and that Derek will be well rested instead of asleep on the couch. It will be much nicer to have him able to actively help me. I am glad that I have had pitocin before because I will know what to expect and know not to wait quite as long to get the epidural. I actually dilated faster with the epidural than without it last time so I will most likely be asking for it pretty quickly into the whole process.

I am nervous to be away from Audrey for so long and hope I get to see her enough that she will not be upset. I am really ready for this all to be behind me. I have my mom watching Audrey while we are in the hospital and then coming to stay with me during the day on Tuesday and Wednesday after Derek goes back to work. Then Derek's mom is going to come and stay with me during the day on Thursday and Friday. I should be pretty well taken care of. That is so much more help then I had last time. I think I am really going to need it this time though. So if you are the praying kind here are a few requests for you: pray for a swift and smooth delivery, healthy baby, Audrey's adjustment, healing, preparations this week. Thanks for reading my blog and I can't wait to update it with pictures of our new family member.

P.S. Sorry if this is rambling or incoherent, I am a bundle of nerves now.

Just had to brag...

My daughter slept in this morning until 9:40 am. I don't know why but I am not complaining since I don't get to sleep in very often.... and very soon I won't even be sleeping through the night. My doctor's appointment is at 9:15 tomorrow morning with MY doctor and hopefully I can get some answers. I will keep you all updated. Until then here are some pics of Audrey at the park on our 75 degree Saturday.

Let the sun shiiinnneee

Yesterday and today are so beautiful weather wise that we are trying to take advantage of it. Audrey and I met Derek at the ferry yesterday and then proceeded to let Audrey play by the fountains for about 45 minutes. She LOVES seeing the water and playing in the fountains. It was so nice to be outside and not freezing. It was a nice distraction too.

Here are some pics:

I thought this was so cute.

I heard from my doctor's office today. However, since Dr. Quimby hasn't seen me in over 2 weeks she wants to see me before scheduling an induction. So the earliest they can squeeze me in is TUESDAY!! So I have to wait four more days to find out when my induction is going to be. However, if it is getting to the point where I will be 39+ weeks then I might just call it off and wait it out. I don't see the point in being induced one week early. Pray for my sanity and patience as I wait for Tuesday to come. Also pray that the pain from Brianna laying on my cyst doesn't get too much worse. I am getting little sleep right now without the help of meds and I don't like to take a lot of medication when I am pregnant. I understand Dr. Quimby's caution but it is really frustrating for me. And all of this because the stupid American Airlines cancelled all those flights this week. UGH! As always I will keep you updated once I know something. Thanks for thinking of me.

To be or not be...

So here is what happened yesterday at my 37 week appointment. First off, this is the first appointment that I have had to take Audrey to the entire pregnancy. It had just always worked out that someone could watch her. Well, since I had a morning appointment and haven't had to wait more than 30 minutes total this entire time I just took her with me. Well, because of Dr. Quimby being stuck and someone else taking her appointments I didn't get called back for my 11:15 appointment until 12:00!! That is so much fun, waiting in a waiting room with a 2 year old who literally has no concept of sitting still. She actually did really well and luckily didn't make me crazy.

So we got called back and did all the preliminary stuff - Audrey couldn't figure out why I was peeing in a cup. Then we went back to a room. Luckily we only had to wait about another seven minutes. The NP came in a did measurements, heartbeat, and an internal - ouch! I am only a fingertip dilated, which I was a little disappointed about because I have had so many Braxton Hicks contractions and even some cramping. I was hoping my body was really preparing for an early exodus anyway. Oh well, no biggie.

So then I bring up the induction...........................................
She tells me that one of Dr. Quimby's partners is going to have to set it up. I don't know why but for some reason she can't/won't do it. So while I proceed to get dressed she goes to talk to another doctor. She comes back and tells me that no one will do it until I see Dr. Quimby again. Well, I don't have an appointment for another week. She tells me to go and tell the receptionist that I need Dr. Quimby's very next available appointment so that I can get my induction set up.

Well the receptionists, yes plural, tell me that her next available appointment isn't until next Thursday, which I already have an appointment that day. I tell them that I don't necessarily need an appointment if Dr. Quimby is willing to do it over the phone. Then they wanna know why I am setting up an induction at 37 weeks... I am not trying to get in this weekend, I will be 38 weeks when I get it. I am frustrated and really want to scream at this point. So finally they tell me they will leave a message for Dr. Quimby and see if she is willing to squeeze me in tomorrow.

Well, apparently the message wasn't left for Dr. Q, her nurse called me later in the afternoon to tell me there was NO way I was going to get in today to see her because she is already double booked. I explained the whole situation to her, which apparently wasn't written down like I asked it to be. She finally explained to me why no one would schedule me for an induction. Apparently while Dr. Q and I had been planning for a month and a half to set a date at my appointment yesterday she had never written anything down or discussed it with anyone. Because of this no one understood the medical reasoning and didn't feel comfortable scheduling it without her consent. Which I can understand. So the VERY nice nurse told me she would leave my chart and a detailed message on Dr. Q's desk for her to look at today and that someone, either Dr. Q herself or a nurse, would call me today to tell me what to do. I am hoping that I will be able to set up my induction over the phone so that all other arrangements can be made. So now I get to wait all day for the phone to ring - Yippee!! Pray that something can get worked out and I can finally get this thing settled. I will let you all know as soon as I know something.

Must be nice

So tomorrow is the big day. I have a doctor's appointment to find out when I am getting induced. Most likely it will be sometime around 38 weeks which is the 18th of this month. I have anxiously been awaiting this appointment for two weeks because my doctor was out of town last week for my appointment. She was supposed to see if I have made any progress (dilation and effacement) and then we were supposed to set the date. So today I get a call at around 2:30 p.m. from my doctor's office. Dr. Quimby is stuck in HAWAII!!!! Uhhhh...... ok? So she won't be able to do my appointment but the Nurse Practitioner/Certified Nurse Midwife (yes that is her full title) can see me at the same time. I was so disappointed because I am really anxious to set up the induction date so that I can finish getting everything ready. I didn't know if I would still be able to do that without seeing my normal doctor, so I asked.
Apparently you schedule the actual procedure with a surgical consultant (I think that's what they called it) after talking to your doctor and they set everything up. So I can still set it all up. This whole process is foreign to me since I wasn't scheduled for inducing with Audrey. I feel like I am navigating uncharted territory and if you know me, I don't like that at all. So while my doctor is sunning herself on the beautiful Hawaiian Islands I get to have a complete stranger man-handle me and hopefully answer all my questions about getting induced. I am tempted to change my appointment for next week to like Monday or Tuesday so that I can see Dr. Quimby again a few days before the induction for some reassurance as to how it will all go.
So if you can, think of me tomorrow around 11:15. Pray that I have made some progress on my own and that the NP/CNM will be able to answer all my questions and get the induction set up with no problems. I can't believe I am going to be having another baby in less than a week and a half. This is so surreal.
By the way, apparently Dr. Quimby is frantically trying to get a flight back to the continental U.S. She isn't blowing off all of her adoring patients for a tan. I am just being a big baby. :)

New Friends

So tonight we had dinner with an old high school friend of Derek's and her family. Ironically her name is also Melissa. She has a little girl who is about 6 months older than Audrey, so she had a playmate. We had a good time talking and eating pizza. Melissa was really sweet and bought the girls matching dress up sets (jewelry, purse and shoes) and some markers that only draw on special paper. Also, she bought me the sling I wanted for the baby! Plus an outfit, socks and a cute ladybug blanket/teddy bear snuggly. I just met this woman tonight. I was very surprised and touched. It was nice to meet another family about our age and with a little girl. We are probably going to do more stuff with them this summer. While I am not good at making new friends I can totally see this being the start of a great family friendship. You could tell that they really wanted to spend more time with us and get together again. This wasn't just an obligation dinner because Melissa happened to find Derek on MySpace.
Here is a picture of Audrey in her jewelry:

Update: Now Audrey is NOT a girly girl but she left those earrings on for hours last night and wore them on and off all day today!

It's Sunday night already?

So this weekend was not full but it went by very very very fast. Saturday Derek ended up not working which was nice because Audrey has really missing him lately. Anyway, we took Audrey to see her first movie in the theaters on Saturday. We went and saw Horton Hears A Who. She actually did really well. She started to move around a lot about half way through but considering the amount of candy she had, she wasn't bad at all. She doesn't have a volume control at all yet but luckily it was an early showing and it was all parents in the theater anyway so they understood. The movie was really cute and Audrey LOVES elephants so she enjoyed it too. She kept calling it her elephant "mee-moo" which is how she says movie for some reason.

We spent the rest of the day at home just hanging out. Except I did have to run out to get, drum roll please, a PACK N PLAY!!! My wonderful friend, Delayna, was browsing on craigslist and noticed a pack n play with bassinet and changing table for the EXACT same price as I was going to pay for the one that fell through. (Read the entry labeled Craigslist fiasco if you don't know what I am referring to) So I emailed the lady and she called me right away. I wasn't going to let this one slip through my fingers. So I hopped over to an ATM and then went to her house. I liked the original one better but this one is in really good shape and I actually like the way that it stores in the carrying case better. So it all worked out, praise God! And thanks Delayna!

Today we just went to church where I fulfilled my monthly nursery duty and Derek started a month's worth of usher duty... we are such good servants... :) JK! I don't know why I don't find someone else to do my nursery duty when I am mega pregnant because I don't have a lot of tolerance for little children when I am this far along. Oh well, it was only an hour and a half and by the time I have to do it again I will have a BABY!! YAY!! As for the rest of the day we just hung out at home. I got a lot of cleaning and laundry done this weekend. I am actually doing a pretty good job of keeping up with the housework at this point. I really want the house to be as clean as possible up until we go to the hospital because I know that in those first few weeks it will all go to pot. So that is the weekend... it is over already... and tomorrow is Monday. Ho hum. At least I don't have a ton of cleaning to do from not doing it over the weekend like usual. Maybe tomorrow Audrey and I will just spend the whole day in our jammies... :) Sounds like a plan to me!

This is SO Audrey

Just thought I would share this. Audrey loves her baths so much and this reminded Derek and I of her.

Craigslist fiasco

So I have been looking on craigslist for months and months for a pack n play. I wanted one with a bassinet and changing table that I could keep in the living room for the first couple months after Brianna is born. I had one that was just the basic pack n play but I really wanted at least the bassinet feature. So I see one on there last week for $60. I emailed the lady and asked if she would be willing to sell it to me for $45. She said yes and we had arrangements to meet this Thursday (yesterday) for me to buy it from her. I was very excited. I really didn't want to buy one new when this is potentially our last baby. So I put my pack n play up for sale on craigslist the next day. I finally get someone seriously interested and we agree to meet up on Tuesday. I drove away from the sale so stoked because I was basically getting a really decent pack n play for $25 after the sale of mine.

Then I get home Wednesday afternoon and find an email from the lady I am supposed to meet the next day!! She basically said that she has decided NOT to sell the pack n play but that she is going to give it to her sister. I just sat there dumbfounded. Now, I have done a lot of transactions through craigslist and NEVER had someone do this to me. I wrote her back telling her I had a baby coming very soon and that I needed that pack n play and it was the only one in my price range (i.e. what I was willing to pay). She wrote me back and basically told me that I was right, $45 was too low for it and even if she wasn't going to give it to her sister (my suspicions rose at this point) she could definitely get way more than $45 for it. So now I think even less of this woman because I would bet money that she isn't giving it to her sister, if she even has one, but that she found someone more than willing to pay more than I was.

So I was mad that A) I wasn't able to meet her sooner, before she had the chance to screw me. B) That I had trusted her to, I don't know, stick to her word and C) that I had sold the only pack n play that I did have and now don't have one at all!! Plus I think this woman has a lot of... guts because she had already given me directions to her house. If I wasn't the person I am ...... well, I will just leave it at that. It isn't the end of the world and luckily a pack n play isn't a necessity I just hate it when I trust someone to be a person of integrity and they aren't. Ok, end rant! :)

8 weeks ahead?

So I went to the doctor yesterday for a weekly check up. Due to Spring Break Dr. Quimby was out of the office for the week so I saw the nurse/midwife that works in the practice. She was brief but nice. The funny thing came when she measured my uterus. For those of you who don't know your measurement (in cm) should roughly equal the number of weeks that you are; which would have been about 36 weeks/cm. Well I know that I have been measuring large most of the pregnancy as I did with Audrey. I didn't know by how much though because Dr. Quimby doesn't usually tell me the exact number. So yesterday the nurse/midwife tells me that I am measuring 44 cm!!! That's 8 weeks ahead of where I "should" be. LOL I don't think this baby is going to be tiny even though she is going to come a couple of weeks early.

We have PEE!!!

So after hours of extensive sitting on the potty, loading Audrey up with liquids and begging her with stickers to go potty and absolutely NO PROGRESS; we gave up on potty training. We figured that she just wasn't ready and that we would try again this summer after the baby had been here a couple of months. Well the last week or so she has started to recognize what pee pee is and telling us (sometimes) when she pee pees in her diaper. Also she was always saying "Don't pee, don't pee" when she was naked (usually to and from the bath) the last week or so. I was happy that there was some progress being made. It made me pretty confident that by the time we started trying to potty train again there would be more success and she would be ready.

Well tonight after her bath she came out wrapped in a towel as usual saying "don't pee, don't pee" again. We reminded her that if she pees when she is naked she needs to be on the potty. Well while she was standing there waiting for Derek to get her a diaper and jammies she looked down like she was expecting to see a puddle. I asked her if she had to pee because she hadn't yet. We ran her into the toilet and sat her down. After about 3 minutes a weird look came over her face. We asked her if she had peed... she didn't answer. She stood up and sure enough....PEE!!!! YAY!! This is the first time she has done anything on the potty. We made a very big deal out of it. So now the predicament is whether or not we should go gung ho into potty training with a baby coming in just a couple of weeks or if we should hold off until summer still..... ugh! Apparently nothing in parenthood can be simple! But for tonight I don't care because *drum roll please* tonight we have PEE!!!

Tuesday, April 1, 2008


So I got a pedicure today which I haven't done since I graduated college three years ago. It was so nice to sit on my tushie for 35 minutes and not have to worry about anything. The chair massaged and my feet got pampered. I picked out a dark purple color, totally not normal for me but fun. Overall it was a very relaxing experience. Now if only my feet weren't swollen... maybe another day. :)
