I’m doing well, except for the cough I caught from Caty 2 weeks ago. The cough then turned into a stuffy nose and a plugged up left ear that is constantly ringing. I saw the doctor yesterday and she prescribed some Amoxicillin to help clear up my ear. When she looked into it, she said “wow, that’s really inflamed” – no kidding! No wonder why I can barely hear out of it. Hopefully it’ll clear up soon.
As you’ve seen from another post, we’ve got Caty moved into her new room. Hanna’s room is basically ready for her, we just need to get a few things up on her walls and the crib set up. My parents will be staying with us for a few days after her birth so during that time she’s going to be in her bassinet in our room and they will be on the blow-up bed in her room. We’ll get the crib set up once they head home.
My due date is June 16th but I’m hoping that she’ll arrive a little early, but not before next Friday – for a number of reasons: 1) Scott’s last day of school is Wednesday, 2) Caty’s last day of school is Thursday and 3) my parents won’t be back from San Diego until Wednesday. They’ll head up here (a 2 hour drive) once I go into labor – one of our friends will watch Caty until they can get here. My parents will then hang out at our house until I start pushing, then head over to the hospital with Caty – it’s about a 20 minute drive.
I have a question for you mom’s out there that have more than one child – did your labors start the same way? From my friends that I have talked with, their labors started the same way, either their water breaking or contractions.
Scott’s school threw us a Baby Shower last week. We ended up with almost all clothes, which found their way back to the stores. Caitlyn has so many clothes, so Hanna is well stocked! We ended up buying things off of our own registry from Babies R Us. Hey, however we get the stuff that we need!
