Night time is really hard for me to sleep so I’m usually awake on the couch watching T.V or reading a book. Last night as I got up to the restroom, I saw a dark figure of a man in our backyard patio reaching for the sliding glass door. I screamed as loud as I could and ran into the bedroom to wake up Jonny. Jonathan immediately opened the bedroom window and starting yelling as loud as he could while I grabbed his phone and called 911. We heard the guy shout something as jumped over the neighbors fence. The police came, took my statement and investigated around the house and back yard. The most scary part about all of this was the sliding glass door was unlocked!! If I hadn’t spotted the dark figured man when I did, who knows what could of happened. I am so grateful that we had family home evening early that night and the spirit was strong in our home. I know that Heavenly Father was watching over us last night and we are blessed that something worse didn’t happen.
Update February 5, 2009
- I thought I would update everybody about the pregnancy
- I’m still bleeding quite a bit, any time I’m on my feet for a long period of time I start to cramp and bleed.
- My 21 week ultrasound is next week so we are pretty excited for that. Though we still aren’t going to find out what the sex is.
- I’m going to go see a physical therapist in a couple of weeks to see if we can straighten out my back and pick my uterus up so there isn’t so much pressure.
- I still on full bed rest until my doctor gives me the okay
- There is a slight chance that I won’t be able to travel to Chicago until the baby is born
Dinner January 29, 2009
This year, I am in charge of Valentines day dinner. I want to make a homemade meal but really gourmet. I’ve been thinking of recipes and new ideas in my head. This is what I was thinking
arugula and fennel salad with a balsamic vinegar dressing
seared scallops with an orange spicy glaze
rack of lamb in a lemon cilantro pesto
I’m going to make it up as I go but am pretty sure how to put it all together
What do you think?
Boredom January 28, 2009
When Kylie is taking her naps and Jonny is at school. I usually get on the computer and start fiddling around with pictures. I’m not allowed to get up from the couch so its really the only thing to do. I’ve read all the books in the house and we have standard t.v.
Good News! January 27, 2009
My doctor visit went very well!!! I’m not going into preterm labor, and the baby is doing great. We heard a healthy heartbeat and a few kicks. My uterus is sitting really low and is putting pressure on my cervix. I’m not on full bed rest anymore but am suppose to take it easy with my feet up. In a couple of weeks if the pain hasn’t gone away in my back, we are going to look at the option of a physical therapist.
I was panicking when I wrote my last post, I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father who heard our prayers and blessed this little soul inside of me.
Not a very good day January 24, 2009
I haven’t had sleep for a straight 72 hours! I started spotting the other day and its had me so frazzled that I can’t even close my eyes without having a nightmare about miscarrying.
I’m trying to keep a positive attitude but I have this nagging at the back of my mind telling me that I’m going to lose the pregnancy..
Go to sleep…PLEASE! November 21, 2008
Kylie and I have developed a bad habit. She wakes up in the middle of the night , I go into her room and rock her in the chair and eventually we both fall asleep. It’s the only time she will sit and cuddle with me so I don’t mind doing it. At Kylie’s last doc appointment the Peditrician told me that she needs to start soothing her self back to sleep. Last night was the first night of trying, she woke up around 2am. She bawled and bawled until Jonny went in and gave her a binki and Snowflake the Penguin. Soon as he left the room she began to cry so hard, It was the saddest thing ever! I started crying but I didn’t give in, I turned the baby monitor off and shut our bedroom door. Three hours later she eventually gave up and fell asleep. YES!!! VICTORY!!
I’m still feeling guilty, and I’m definitely not looking forward to tonight, but I know this is the best thing for her.
