Bad surprises during pregnancy

So as everyone knows your organs get shoved upwards to make room for the baby and your growing uterus. Well in my case in doing so it has aggravated mt gallbladder to the point of hurting. But why would it start hurting. Hippy Hooray I have gallstones. Even though I have never had a attack before they start now because of lack of room in my belly. I went to the ER Monday morning at about 12 AM. I thought I was going into Preterm labor. OH MY GOD the pain was bad. All around my stomach in my back, in my ribs, it made me short of breath. So it admitted me right away. Ran every test imaginable. And came up with nothing. They had no clue what could be causing the pain. A pulmonologist, lung specialist, came said well made you have a clot in your lungs. Ran a test, came back negative. They released me at about 4 pm Monday evening. So the next day I go and see my Doctor, he says made its your gallbladder. So I had that tested a couple of days later.
Thankfully they found gallstones.
Unthankfully they found gallstones.
Because now that means I more than likely will have to have surgery after Alex gets here. Unless something bad happens between now and then. Which since having a cervix over 25 puts you in the low risk category for pre-term labor, and mines a 46, Im praying that it stays that way until March 4th or so.

A day late and a dollar short

But yall get the ideal. Yesterday marked 20 days till Thanksgiving. And I had been meaning to post all day. But with Physical Therapy, which ended yesterday too, taking Karmin out, and trying to straighten up the mess that is our house well lets just say I never made it on here.

So I had planned on nameing 20 things Im thankful for, but since I still have crap to do, and I need to go cook. Im only going to list 10. Ill probably come back for part 2 and name 10 more, who knows.

1. WH for being so patient with me and all my hormonal, crazy mood swing, wanting to kill him some times, bad temper's. He loves me still. Even when I question why, he just says he does. And for him being there for me non-stop in this crazy 23 weeks that has past I love him more and more each day.

2. Alex. Point Blank. I love and am so thankful for my son that I could just cry. He is amazing already. I cant tell he is going to be stubborn like his daddy. And from the ultrasounds he appears to have his daddy's chin, which I think is adorable. He makes me smile every time I feel him kick, even when it hurts me. I'm so thankful that I get to be him mama.

3. My amazingly amazing family. I have no clue what I would do with out them. If they didn't listen to my craziness. If they didn't believe in me. Hell If they weren't there for me I have no clue how I could think Id be able to handle Alex. But thankfully I have been blessed with sisters so amazing that I don't have to worry about buying any of the big stuff, i.e. crib, stroller, car seat, etc. And they make sure to tell me that if I need anything, or anyone at anytime I can call any of them, Even though Em lives 3 hours away, I know she'd listen to me.

4. Honestly my mother. Shes never really been there before, but shes damn well making up for it now. And for Alex's sake I'm thankful. I think she might actually be involved in his life. Which makes me happy.

5. WH's parents/siblings. They are amazing. They too have made me feel like when I get to "That Point" Ill still be able to handle it.

6. GOD. I know he should have been higher on the list, but I'm not going in any certain order. Without him, I know I would probably fail as a mom. But I know with his help and his guidance Ill be able to handle it.

7. Karmin. I love my doggy what can I say. Shes been there when me and WH have gotten into it and I have been at my emotional wits end. Shes been there to lay her large head on my lap and look up at me with those big brown eyes and give me some piece of mind that it would all be ok. And so far it has.

8. Having a good Physical Therapist. He was funny and nice and made coming to the clinic enjoyable. Well except when my hips would pop out and he couldnt get them back in. Im thankful that its over. But Im going to miss them all there.

9. Our Friends. KAM has been great. Shes been there when I just needed to get away and out of the house. She has been one of the bestest best friends I could have ever asked for. And Most of WH's friends have been surprisingly helpful.

10. Having this blog. Sometimes you just need to get it off your chest. And with Blogger I can. I can type it all out and let others read and see whats going on in my life. And I cant see that shit happens to everyone, and celerbrate others good times as well.

Sad times mixed with good news

Well I found out over the weekend, Halloween day to be exact, that my granny Bee is going to die. She has cancer. Alot of cancer. She has it in her stomach, her liver, her pancreas, and its still spreading. So with so much of it theres no way the doctors could do surgery to get it, they would probably misss some and then theres the very high chance that because of her age she wouldnt make it thru surgery anyway. So the doc gave her 6 months to a year, and hopefully she wont have to be in pain.

And the good news in all of this. I wont have to be stressed out about where we live anymore. We are moving. I am so happy because I didnt want my baby to be here. (Theres drug activity around us, I just know it and I dont trust anyone in the neighborhood.) So its better for my sanity and my little one if we move, and praise the Lord to the highest he made it happen!!
