Weekend Recap :)

You have a few more hours to enter the giveaway :)

Hope you all had a good Memorial Day weekend! I can't believe May is over.

I can also not believe...

Cohen is due to be born one week from today!

I'm getting so excited...and scared...and well all those lovely emotions. I will tell you the scared emotions mostly arrive at night and in the mornings, ick.

I know I just posted my Prego Mego week 37 below, but I'm actually 38 weeks as of today.

I had a good weekend. Brent, his mom and my dad arrived on Thursday after lunch. We toured Parkland (where Cohen will be born) Thursday afternoon and you can read more about that here. My parents traveled a little over an hour outside of Dallas to spend a few days with my cousins and Brent's mom stayed here in Dallas with he and I.

Friday, Brent and I had a photo shoot with Children's, which I also previously mentioned. I'm excited to see the photos and I'm waiting to hear about pics/videos in the OR while I'm delivering! After the photo shoot, we ran errands for a few hours and then rested for a few hours. For dinner, we met with one of our good friends, Natalie, for a delicious dinner!

We just hung around the house on Saturday for a few hours and then went to Brent's aunt & uncle's house in the afternoon. They live about 45 minutes away. We had a yummy dinner at their house. I snapped a few pictures as I was trying to get some practice with my 50mm lens.










Seeing so many dogs over the weekend really made me miss my little Elton even more....




Sunday, I got lots of rest and Brent got lots of heat! He golfed for a few hours with his uncle. I don't know how they did it. It is so darn hot!! This helps me....



I had I Heart Yogurt for the first time yesterday and I really like it! I heart yogurt. It was pretty similar to the Peachwave, which I had recently became accustomed to.

Here we are on Sunday evening :)


{brent was proud of this picture he took of me, haha}

So, I had quite a busy weekend..which was nice. I'm tired but since Brent left today, I probably won't sleep as well as I have the past few nights :( It is amazing what a difference him being here made. Luckily, he will be back in a few days!

I have several things I have to get done in the next few days. We have some family and friends arriving over the weekend for Cohen's birth. Brent and I will stay in a hotel on Saturday and Sunday night and head to the hospital early Monday morning. I have my last OB appointment on Wednesday.

I'll be catching up on some blog reading this week too :)

Thank you all for the sweet comments and emails!

Prego Mego - Week 37!

hi everyone :)

{Since it is a holiday weekend, I decided to extend the giveaway until Monday night. It will end at 12 and I'll announce the winner the next morning}

Sorry I've been MIA for a few days. We have had quite a bit going on. On Tuesday I turned 37 weeks! I never actually realized this, but my previous OB had my change days on Mondays. So, maybe technically I turned 37 weeks Monday. Regardless, I'm so happy Cohen is doing good and staying in just as long as he can :)

He is still scheduled to arrive a week from Monday. We had an appointment this past Wednesday with the OB. Though I've already posted about it, I'm am going to include the two paragraphs in this post as well.....

On Wednesday, they didn't do his measurements in his ultrasound. They just checked the fluid and did a mini ECHO on his heart to send to the cardiologist. His heart is still of course not looking normal...at all. The girl doing the sonogram didn't give us any new details. Let's just hope and pray maybe it has gotten somewhat better and not at all worse, k? I have a few pics of his little profile that I will post tomorrow evening in the Prego Mego post. He was very active and showing breathing pattern, which are both good. My fluid actually increased! I didn't even know it could do that. Last week it was around an 8, which gave the doctor some concern, and this week it was a 12. So that is much better. My blood pressure is good, 110/70, and I somehow lost 2.5 lbs. I think that is because Cohen must be eating more. I'm eating lots I feel like. I can't believe I'm considered full term now. So thankful!

I'm getting swollen, I can tell. My shoes are getting tight, so I'm sticking to my comfy yoga mat flops most of the time.

I feel good a few hours at a time and I feel bad a few hours at a time. I've been having lots of aches and some nausea. I'm certain the nausea has something to do with the fact it is almost close to 100 degrees outside in Dallas everyday. The aches, I'm sure, are Cohen getting a bit uncomfortable, therefore having me get uncomfortable : / I can't stand for long periods of time at all. Walking is even better than standing. Don't worry, I know the pain is SO worth the gain. I'm not complaining, just putting it all out there. Believe me, I'd probably be happy with him in my belly for as long as he wanted to be.

I honestly could just sit and watch him move around :) He tickles me too and it's pretty funny at times.

I'm not sleeping very much. I'm tired and I can get somewhat comfortable, I simply close my eyes and don't fall to sleep. I guess my mind just starts racing. God is preparing me for many awake hours I'm certain. Brent arrived yesterday Thursday and I have slept much better :)...which is nice.

Thursday afternoon, we took a tour of the hospital. We toured the pre-op room that I will be in. We then went to the labor and delivery area that I will be in. It's considered the high risk part whether for the mom's sake or the baby's sake. There will be a special family room for our friends and family waiting the arrival of Cohen. They gave us LOTS of info and the staff was SUPER nice. The ladies we spoke with in the NICU had already gotten emails on baby Cohen. That was a good feeling to know they are expecting him. They answered all our questions (that we could think of at the time) and gave us lots of information, some paperwork and contact information in case we wanted to call with any questions. I honestly can't get over how welcoming they were. I will tell you I almost lost it a few times having to hear and see so much, but I didn't want any negative energy around the babies in the NICU so I kept it together pretty well. I just tried not to think about how my baby would be in there before we knew it. The babies were beautiful. There were different rooms that were full of babies in different situations. There were nurses surrounding them.

I will tell you it made me pretty sad not to see many parents. I know there are all sorts of situations where mommies and daddies cannot be there around there around the clock (or even 8 hours a day) with their baby, but it still made me sad. According to the NICU rules, can be with Cohen almost 24 hours a day except a few hours every morning when the doctors are doing their rounds. Though our situation is not going to be easy...mentally, physically or financially, I'm thankful I'll be able to be with Cohen at the hospital.

Honestly, it still doesn't seem surreal yet. It is a week from Monday and then it will be reality, which I know will still be completely different than what I'm going through now. I'm so scared but I am still also so excited to see and meet him.

The lady who is head of the NICU gave us her card before we left and also gave us a pretty baby blue crocheted blanket. Cohen will seriously have the best blankets ever. You can see more here, here and here. She also said it's a great idea to start sleeping with it so he will have our smells (which we had already planned to do with all of his special blankets:) I think I'll have about 2 or blankets in bed with me this week and Brent will have 2 in bed with him. Thankfully, Brent is here for a long weekend and heading back Monday. He will return on Friday.

Once Cohen is stabilized they will take him from my delivery room (or a room next door where they may stabilize him post delivery) to the NICU. While he is in route, they will knock on our waiting room door for our family to see him. I'll then go to the recovery area and then a postpartum room. Brent or a grandparent will be able to be with Cohen while and when he is taken to the NICU. They do not know how long Cohen will be in the NICU before he goes to Children's.t really depends on how he is doing and what they find when they exam him. I'm supposed to be down for 12 hours before getting up. The NICU ladies did tell me that if they had to get him to Children's within the 12 hours, they would figure out a way for me to see him first. I made sure to ask. I will see him briefly once he is delivered but he will be risked away pretty quickly, more than likely.

Here I am this week....




Most of the itchy rash from my allergy to black dye has disappeared off my belly (I talked about this is prego mego last week), but it has moved to my hips some (as you may can see) and behind one of my knees.

I liked the above shirt ($7 maternity clearance at Target), but I did wear it for our photo shoot with Children's and I'm starting to think it may have not been the best pick for my puffy arms to be in pictures! Oh well....that's just part of pregnancy. The photo shoot was yesterday (Friday) morning. It is part of the documentary process. It was fun and the photographer said Brent and I are great to photograph, which seems crazy. Neither of us ever feel photogenic. They took some video too. They will be giving me a disk so I'll upload pics and post some of them. You may see a lot of our pics soon, as I still have some maternity ones to share as well.

Here Cohen is this week... (As I mentioned, his ultrasound was a bit different so the settings for pictures weren't the normal ones. I can tell what these are because they showed and told me. The first two are profile/skull and the bottom is a foot:)



On Wednesday, the doctor did put me in a splint to wear on my wrist when I sleep. She explained why I had gotten Carpel Tunnel so bad. She immediately looked down and my hands and saw how swollen they are next to my little wrists. She just said with the swelling and retaining, the wrists are so small the the nerves get smooshed and the joints don't work right It is worse when I sleep because I probably smoosh the wrist more cutting off more circulation. Literally, if I reach for my glass of water or phone when just waking up, I pretty much scream at the pain. It is kind of like I forget though because it doesn't hurt during the day time AT ALL. She said she got it terribly when she was pregnant. She also said (just as many of you have) that it will probably disappear right away once Cohen is born.

attractive, huh?

After our photo shoot with Children's yesterday, we grabbed some lunch and did some searching for a place to "live" in the future. Once Cohen is able to come "home" from the hospital (whether after surgery or between surgeries), he still must be 30 minutes within the hospital. We have been so fortunate to have a great place prior to his arrival and we a praying something else that fits us comes along for the future. It's kind of hard to plan with no dates and time frames. I'm trying not to stress about it because I expect it to be a while away. I do have stress about our house still not selling!

Since Cohen won't be wearing clothes for a while, I decided to get him some little beanies.
I did a quick search online and came across Tiny Tots & Polka Dots. I emailed the contact, Erin, and she was so nice and easy to work with. I told her what I was looking for and some colors and she whipped these up and sent them to me. I told her what color beanies (2 greens, 2 blues & a white). I had her to pick some fonts and their colors and I think they turned out super cute :) Thanks, Erin!

I'm drained and going to bed! More soon!

Cohen Drive & Doctor Appointment

I recently got this email from a sweet blogger!

Hi Megan,

My name is Maureen and I live in Dayton, Ohio. I found your blog a few months back (I don't even remember how) but I was so touched by your story and have been praying for you, your husband, and Cohen every single day.

I was visiting my boyfriend last week at The Ohio State University (in Columbus, Ohio) where he goes to school. When I was driving to his apartment I passed a street I hadn't noticed before. :) "Cohen Dr." I had to take a picture of it for you! First, because I thought it was really cool - since it had his name on it. And second, just because I thought you might like it - and to let you know I was thinking of you guys.



I just wanted you to know that your family is always in my heart and comes to mind often.

I hope you like the pictures!!! I wanted you to have the one that's sort of far away too so you could get an idea of what surrounds little Cohen's street!! :)

Have a wonderful rest of the day and a great weekend!

My blog is - amillionmargaritas.blogspot.com - just incase you want to check it out.

:)
Maureen

I thought that was so nice of her! You bloggers are so thoughtful! :) {I did get Maureen's permission to include her email before posting.}

Cohen and I had a good appointment today :) They didn't do his measurements in his ultrasound. They just checked the fluid and did a mini ECHO on his heart to send to the cardiologist. His heart is still of course not looking normal...at all. The girl doing the sonogram didn't give us any new details.

She said she got it terribly when she was pregnant. She also said (just as many of you have) that it will probably disappear right away once Cohen is born.

After my appointment, mom and I went to find me a robe for the hospital. I love the one I got. Maybe I'll post tomorrow. Maybe I will even model it for you all, HA! We went by the pharmacy to get my splint. Then, we came home with 3 delicious pieces of different types of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory :) I must let you know today was my first outing since Saturday. It's just HOT and I have no pep in my step. I got a little bit this afternoon after having several hours of nausea this morning. Luckily, it passed and wasn't a sign of labor.

Brent, dad & mother-in-law arrive tomorrow.

If you have written me an email, I will be returning it soon. I greatly appreciate them :)

From One Mom’s Hopeful Heart to Another…

I posted about sweet Lauren and her wonderful mother, Kirsten, here. Kirsten and I stay in contact and in her most recent email she had this at the bottom....

"….. I would like to put something on your blog!!!

Happy Belated Mother’s Day Megan! Only a few weeks to go until you witness the greatest miracle of all…bringing life into this world. We as moms already know that the day you bring your first into the world will be the greatest of your life. We moms who have heart babies also know that it will be one of the scariest. HOWEVER, I say this to you from experience - you will appreciate the meaning of “life” more than most. The moment you found out you were pregnant the first thing you wanted to hear was that sweet pea’s heartbeat, now you pray for it to beat. I know this. I know that we can not predict the future, but we can TRUST in God’s plan. Its not the plan we may have chosen, but it is perfect none the less. You will hear the sweetest cry, see a precious face, and wonder. HOWEVER, I say this from experience – you will appreciate those moments more than most! Cherish them and every minute from that moment on. You will see Cohen go through surgery, you will see the scar, you will cry, you will hurt – HOWEVER, I say this from experience – you will cherish those moments as well. You will know that you have done EVERYTHING as a mother that you can do for your child. You chose the best medical care, turned your life upside down, and never for a minute looked back. You may have a rough and scary first year with Cohen, HOWEVER, I say this from experience – you will look back upon the year with a smile. You will look into his eyes and realize that while this first birthday is a huge milestone, it’s more of a celebration of life! Megan & Brent – your journey with Cohen is beginning. I pray for peace, comfort, and love to be with you during the next few months. I can promise you hope – God promises us we will never lose hope! We love you guys, we love Cohen! Take care!!!! Kirsten Hilsheimer & Family

Much love Megan!!!! Kirsten"



SO sweet! Thank you, Kirsten! You should have heard me trying to read that to Brent in the car. My tears had smiles with them though because the note is so sweet and real.

As a reminder to those reading, Kirsten has gone through a lot with her daughter, Lauren. She did it all with the same doctors we are about to use..in the same location, Children's Medical Center in Dallas.

This is Lauren after heart surgery..
Lauren today...

Weekend Recap :) & 1st time scooter experience

Hi everyone :) I'm sad the weekend has come to an end. It's weird not having to wake for work tomorrow.

Brent came to Dallas on Thursday night. We just laid around and then went to bed. Friday, Brent worked most of the day. We are so grateful that his company is helping him be able to work some from Dallas with a laptop and his cell phone. On a typical day in the office, he sits at a desk, in front of a computer with a headset on. We went to grab some lunch and then went to Staples so he could get some office supplies.

Friday evening, Brent and I grabbed dinner at a place right down the road. We were pretty tired and didn't feel like doing much or really getting dressed differently.

Our growing family :) (minus our sweet pup, Elton :()


Saturday we slept in, which was nice. I didn't sleep that great during the night, though. I'm allergic to PPD, which is parahenylenediamine. PPD is mostly considered a black dye. I use to not be allergic to it but a few years ago, I found out after a patch test, I am. I hope it doesn't last forever. I hope it is a hormonal thing. I have the most sensitive skin ever. I had colored my hair off and on since I was a teen. I,all of the sudden, got an AWFUL rash. Doctors weren't sure about it..just like they don't understand my skin. I did Google research and requested the patch test in order to determine a PPD allergy. Sure enough, positive. ANYWAYS, I am usually pretty good about washing ALL clothes before wearing them. Well, I had bought some maternity pieces on clearance a few months ago (the black dress in previous post for $5.38 at Target and the pants from some place also in that post) They were cheap and I figured I would grow into them. Well, I took the tags off and never washed them. I have grown into them now, so I wore them a few days ago (both in same day). Mistake. I have an unattractive, itchy belly now :(

We had BBQ for lunch on Saturday and then ran some errands. Brent needed a computer bag to tote is work laptop back and forth and I needed a few more larger and COOLER pieces of clothing. DALLAS IS HOT. Though a lot of my friends that live here do say it is hotter than normal in May, I was just not expecting to be quite so hot. I'm not only hot outside, I'm out inside. We headed to Target. I know I have mentioned this, but I'm not lasting for very long on my legs. The heat and all is making me swell and within minutes of standing, I'm ready to sit! When we walked into Target I asked mom and Brent if they thought I could ride in a scooter. They said they see no reason why I shouldn't be able to. I had my mom ask the guy. They had about 4 or 5 scooters sitting up at the front and the guy said sure..

There should probably be a scooter post all in itself because Brent COULD NOT STOP LAUGHING AT ME!! He whipped out his iphone within seconds and started recording. They are all pretty short videos. I really can't believe I'm posting them. I look round and tired! We are in no way making fun of scooters. Brent is just laughing at my ability to drive one. I think they are WONDERFUL for someone that needs them. Let me assure you, it certainly helped me from having painful Target experience.

I look stressed in the video because at the time, I was certain I would have no luck finding anything to fit. It's pretty funny how quickly I zipped through the swimsuit section. In the first video, Brent does commentating. In the second video, I nearly ran into a poor lady and I just heard Brent trying to hide his laughs from me.






{I keep pulling my hair back because I lost my ponytail holder and it had been in one all morning..therefore,looking ick}

Brent had no luck finding a computer bag at Target but I was able to find a $7.00 clearance maternity top and a $15.00 dress (that I will probably wear as a shirt for now) so that was nice :)

After Target, I experienced my first "big city" TJ Maxx experience. I am a TJ Maxx fan, typically. However, Dallas is quite a different experience in TJ Maxx. I am use to a free-standing, organized, non-swamped store. That is not the case here. It is in a shopping center, packed FULL of people with no organization. Needless to say, I made it to the front of the store and found a chair quickly. They did not have the selection of bags that I'm use to. So, we then went to a close-by Marshall's. I just remember both Marshall and TJ Maxx having purses, luggage and computer-type bags. Here we are at Marshall's. You can tell we had to get a pick-me-up with our Starbucks in hand. Hubby was carrying a gown for me that I hope fits for the hospital. I wouldn't try it on in the store so maybe I'll do that tomorrow. Brent is trying on his computer bag. I was holding a shirt that I didn't get because it was white...and probably didn't fit so talked myself out of thinking it would. Brent did get the bag. We like it. It is Ben Sherman and was a great price.



We rested for a few hours after errands and then Brent and I decided to go see Ironman 2. We weren't sure when the next time we would be able to see any movies after the next few weeks. We got in the car and decided to grab a bite to eat before going in the movie. We weren't too hungry and I knew I would want some popcorn. We went to The California Pizza kitchen...

We got the avocado rolls and they were delicious! Just the right amount of food before the movie.

We really liked the movie! I thought it was just as good as the first one really. I love Gwyneth Paltrow. Brent thinks she is a bit odd. Maybe, but who cares. I thought Robert Downey Jr. did a great job and I think Don Cheadle is pretty funny. I did think it was a different type of roll for Scarlett Johansson.

One of the great things about the movie is that we saw it at the Landmark Inwood Theater....
This theater had comfy couches....
We had no idea prior to that we would be able to have such comfortable seating. You should have seen our giddy-ness when we walked into the theater.

We slept in a today as well (Sunday). Brent left a little after noon. Luckily, he will be back either Wednesday night or Thursday morning and have a long weekend here :)

Thank you all for the sweet comments on my Prego Mego 36 week post :)

This week I will be looking for a robe for the hospital, writing lots of thank you notes (finally), going to the doctor on Wednesday, mapping out routes to the hospital, touring the hospital, doing a giveaway on the blog with CSN Stores and maybe having lunch or dinner with some friends.

Hope you all have a good Monday!

Prego Mego - Week 36

Today I am a little over 36 weeks pregnant with Cohen. In fact, I'm close to being full term! YAY.

I say yay because I'm so glad Cohen is still in there. I don't feel like I'm about to bust or anything...just yet.

I'm feeling pretty good :) Still pretty achy. I'm okay until I've been sitting or laying down for a bit then it is kind of a struggle to stand up!

I love Cohen moving around. His moves are definitely very different the bigger he gets. I can feel him in multiple places. I think he moves his feet and his hands and I can feel them at the same time. I seriously think he likes to tickle me!

I'm getting so excited for Cohen's arrival but I'm also getting quite nervous.

MY WRISTS HURT! It started about two weeks ago and seems to have gotten worse. I Googled this and supposedly it is quite common in the second half of a pregnancy to get Carpal tunnel syndrome. You can read here about it. It has lots of causes but the pregnancy ones are typically the water retention, swelling, nerve & joint changes. I wake up in the morning and feel like my wrists have broken in my sleep. It probably doesn't help I've been a computer junkie at night time lately. I did have a little Carpal tunnel when I was younger and played the piano. Nothing like this.

My right arm and hand falls asleep all the time. It's weird.

I've had a little bit of cramping but it seems to just be things spreading and/or Cohen getting lower. The other night I had some cramping for about half an hour. I think it was food but I wasn't sure. I've never had a contraction so I don't know what it feels like. It finally stopped so no trips to the hospital. Good thing I went to the doctor the next morning.

Does he look like he is getting lower?


{Sorry for the thermostat by my head. It was the place with the best lighting for the picture I think.}

So, I think there is quite a big difference in this week and last week! Yes!? Maybe he did gain a full pound. Last week below, this week above....


I went to the doctor on Wednesday afternoon. I know I posted about it in my post the other day, but here is some of the paragraph I posted..and more..

Cohen is doing good! They said he was measuring about 6 lbs 6 oz. That's over a pound more than last week so the doctor said in reality, the measurement is probably half a pound on either side. So, more than likely he is right about 6 lbs 1 oz, which is still good! In the sonogram he was playing with his toes. We've seen him do that before a few times. I think he likes it. They also showed us his hair and gave us a picture! We are thinking he has lots :) Can't imagine where he gets that from. It is also looking again like he has plump lips.

Here he was on Wednesday :)....



I'm not thinning or dilating yet. That is a good thing. My fluid is normal but on the low side of normal. They will check it next Wednesday and keep an eye on it. The c-section is set for June 7th unless Cohen decides he wants to come earlier or if the fluid starts decreasing quicker.

No sign of stretch marks. Still hoping they stay away! I did not gain any weight from last Thursday until this Wednesday. I'm not sure how! I can definitely tell I'm starting to retain water. My feet and hands are getting swollen and I have even been off them SO SO much more than before I moved. Maybe I need to be walking more? I don't know though. We went to the mall and after about 10 minutes, my legs were already hurting haha.

Cohen sleeps later than I do. At first this freaked me out. I would be up in the morning for an hour or two before I ever felt him move. Then, I realized he just likes to sleep a bit longer than I am able to sleep myself.

We are getting settled in Dallas (my mom and I are here all the time and Brent is back and forth). It is still pretty weird to be here. We do have some things to prepare and get before the arrival of baby Cohen. I know I've already said this but I just keep thinking about how blessed we are to have a place to stay that is not an apartment or hotel and is within the distance the hospital wants us. I was just doing an estimate on a hotel room. Say we are in Dallas for 6 months and were in a hotel room averaging $60 per night. With tax and all that would probably be close to $15,000 or more. How would we have done that? We couldn't have! So thank God for giving us something we can handle for now. Medical bills are quickly adding up and baby Cohen hasn't even been born. Luckily, those don't have to be paid in full. Hopefully, no one cares if it takes us yeas and years..and years to pay them : /

I got a wonderful package from Christie this week. She has so much going on and still wanted to take the time to pick Cohen out some special items :) She wrote he and I such sweet cards. Christie and I have shared many emails over the past few months and as I've recently posted, she just lost her heart baby, Tristan. She is so strong and I am so grateful for the encouraging words she still sends my way!

Christie let me know in her note that she prayed over all these things for Cohen :) She also helped me out in several ways by removing the tags, washing & ironing the things she sent. So sweet. She got some onesies that button up a a cute little robe that he can wear, once he is able to wear clothes, and some socks that will certainly fit his little feet! She sent a blanket aka a "guezzy". Christie used a blanket like this for her kids and they all loved them. It has a cool side and a warm side. I think Cohen will love it, too!




Thank you so much, Christie! :)

Back to this post, I had a few emails/comments about turning the comments off. You all are probably right in saying I should have left them on because you really do want to give me support and comfort, if and when possible. You all are always so good at doing so in your comments, I just didn't want you to feel like I was asking for them. I don't know. I'm losing it maybe :p

I think that is all for now. I am so thankful to you all for the thoughts and prayers!! We greatly appreciate them :)

PS - On Monday I will be announcing a giveaway I'm hosting with CSN Stores :)
