A Bright New Era Has Begun

I am happy to report that I now have internet at home.  Internet that runs at a decent speed.  admittedly this is a small thing that will bring us (me) great pleasure.  I am even happier that I successfully set up my wireless connection and type this from my couch as I watch House.  (I still think that there should be a SLP on House…and she should be named Skye.  I’m the obvious choice.)

Now that I have had time to process it I am calmer about having Cholestasis of Pregnancy.  Naturally I wish that I didn’t have this condition, but I’m happy it is being taken care of and monitored.  *scratches foot* 

Anyway (I stink at transitions) we are all doing great.  The babies love living in our own house and I was pleasantly surprised that they took to sleeping in their own room as if they had been waiting for the chance.  Actually knowing my daughter, she WAS waiting for a bit of privacy.

Mom quit hovering I can go up and down the slide all alone!

Actually Junior tends to have the same attitude

"Give me strength"

 Our house is changing and improving by leaps and bounds.  I will have to make a before, during and after post later although I have to show you the stairs gate Nehemias made.

Thank goodness I married a blacksmith

I love it here, I’m so happy we are settled in our own home.  Now I’m getting pumped up for Christmas, the first Christmas in our own home with 3 babies. 

On a completely unrelated note I really got to psych myself up to use my MAC Marine Life.  I guess I’m just afraid of messing it up because it’s so pretty.  The gold seahorse is just overspray so after 1-2 uses it would all be gone.

Mmmmm. Gorgeous.  I better never add up the actual retail value of my makeup, I’d probably throw up.

OMG this itching is making me nuts.  My feet are all scabby and scratched…and my hands are dry and scaly.  The plus is the scabs on my wrists healed…and that is without using the scabies medicine I was prescribed. (I’m still stunned about that)  Baby is moving more and more, its pretty fun watching my belly twitch and move, its my fav part of the day.

I had an OB appointment yesterday and I got the results of several tests back. The good news is I don’t have Gestational Diabetes. The bad news is I have Cholestasis of Pregnancy. (which explains the intolerable itching)

I’m quietly freaking out…my other 2 pregnancies were uneventful. The thought of 2X weekly nonstress tests, weekly OB visits, weekly blood tests to monitor my liver and bile not to mention a planned induction at or prior to 38 weeks is overwhelming. I’m thankful my doctor realized it was more than just pregnancy itchiness but I didn’t expect to be told that I’m “high risk”

I must admit tho I am feeling a bit smug. Last week when I took my daughter to the dr the doctor told me I had SCABIES! Then the prescription she gave me was for lice shampoo which I was supposed to put over my whole body…the thought of putting harsh chemicals on top of my itchy, sensitive skin was not appealing. She said she had seen a lot of it lately in “my” community(meaning the rez where I don’t live anymore). I asked her about the fact that scabies is contagious, so if it was scabies shouldn’t my husband and children have it as well…to which she said they “probably” will have it soon. Needless to say I ignored that advice and no, she is NOT our regular family dr.

Kinda wish I did have scabies tho.

Genius. There is absolutely no other word to describe me.

Wow.  I’m feeling especially brilliant and special today.  Husband had some errands to run so i thought I would take the babies to town in their wagon so I could do my errands.  (I felt weird driving such a short distance.)

Apparently I get tired MUCH more easily when 7 months pregnant because suddenly I feel like I walked to town from the reserve, and not simply from my neighborhood.  However that isn’t why I am feeling so proud of my grey matter.

I need to send a fax, a letter and buy my children a slush like I promised.  I can’t because I am without funds which brings me here to the town library.  I’m the idiot who left her debit card at home and JUST NOW OMG YOU GUYS REALIZED THE ANSWER TO THIS EMBARRASSING SITUATION.

I’m just going to walk 20 yards to my other  bank. Duh.  (This is where I’m glad I hold accounts at 3 different banks.)

I really should delete this post since I am painting myself with a rather dull brush.

FINALLY a hot day in Saskatchewan

Today it is 28 C…and i mean POSITIVE 28!! I am beyond excited and happy.  To mark the occassion I decided to wear a skirt and top combo that makes me feel both cute and extremely pregnant.  I even have cute toes since I got a pedicure last Monday…oh how delicate and feminine I appear today. *snort*

I havent been blogging much lately although i did participate in #BloggersWithoutMakeup via twitter.

SO glam I want to do myself

So in a way I “sort of” made a small post.  Looking at that pic kind of makes me want to put more lipstick on…

As per usual I have been on Twitter a lot lately, if you are not following me you should be een though I never wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy.  I hate that song although the line makes me laugh.

This morning I got a bbm message (blackberry messenger for anyone not on TeamBlackberry) from my brother.  He had a meeting this morning with Husky Oil in Lloydminster (my brother is a band councillor).  Anyway the meeting ended up being in Calgary with the President of Husky Oil…very cool, especially since he was gifted with a Pendleton Blanket.  (I may try convince him that it would make an excellent housewarming present for me.)

Speaking of housewarming we have been busy with our new little home.  I LOVE IT!! We have a double lot and lots of gorgeous mature trees and even a little bridge! Anyway, it will be amazing, pictures to follow so stay tuned.
