Yesterday was a busy day! Gage and I both had doctors visits in Show Low, I had some overdue grocery shopping to do, and a package to pick up at UPS. I realize that this doesn't sound like that much...but for a 9 month pregnant lady and overly exuberant 2 year old boy...this is quite the day! Thank heavens for my sister Amber who hung out with us all day and was TONS of help!
Gage's appointment was with Dr. Cox for his 2 week post-OP check up. Everything looked EXCELLENT! The tubes are right in place, his lymph nodes aren't swollen any more and his throat and nose are much more clear than they have basically EVER been! Thanks to the removal of his extremely infected adenoids! So we are really praying that this will be the conclusion to our little man's ear problems! We're so thankful to our Heavenly Father for making it possible to have these problems fixed and we're also so grateful that this is the biggest of our worries in Gage's health. We really do feel blessed for what a healthy little boy we have!
My appointment also went well! It was my 38 week check up and though I was hoping that the doctor would tell me that I was ready to have the baby right away...I can live with the fact that that's not what happened. There was still not much progress in the way of dilating and all that fun stuff...but the doctor went ahead and scheduled me in for induction on July 2nd! Yay! So I am happy to say that we have less than a week left until we can meet our new little man! I am going to have to keep myself busy until then so that I don't get too anxious! I kind of feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas! I think this is way more exciting than waiting for Santa to stop by though! There is however a part of me (a TINY part) that thinks "Am I really ready for this?!" Hence the 'Ramblings' mentioned in the title!
I have been having some serious attachment issues this past week with Gage! Don't get me wrong, I am SO excited for the new addition to our family, but I wonder how Gage will do with it not just being him and I all day long. I am pretty much at his disposal for playing, comforting and entertaining right now and in a matter of days that is going to really change! It almost makes me sad, and then I think how much fun Gage will have with his new brother! Especially in the years to come! I mean, obviously I am a super cool mom (ha ha) but I definitely couldn't give him the same happiness of having a brother to play with and cause all kinds of mischief with! So I guess this is a part of life! I just need to get over it already! It just seems to have hit me like a ton of bricks the last few days and I've been having all kinds of emotions about it all! I wonder if that could have something to do with the craziness of pregnant women's hormones? Nah. ha ha Well if any of you moms have advice on how to get through these emotions (I'm hoping I'm not the only person to have this problem) I would be grateful for your comments. In the mean time I will just try to be a big girl and get through it!
