First thing first, Daddy is off his antibiotics and his stitches are probably coming out Monday or Tuesday. The cyst in his leg was actually a Lipoma which is a benign fatty tissue that can stay the same size your whole life or get bigger but doesn't really do any harm. Not sure of the connection to the Lipoma with the Mrsa but he had both, so yeah. His leg still aches and hurts and he catches it accidently sometimes on the truck seat but the wound itself is healing good.
Grace's finger is all healed up, I gave her a bath tonight without the bleach in it and I will be calling the dr about her antibiotics tomorrow. We all know Daddy and Grace have hyper sensitive skin and daddy developed a rash so the dr told him to get off the antibiotics. (The rash can be really bad news). But the rash on daddy can also be from the constantly bleached clothes towels, sheets and blankets. The fabric softner or in fact from the antibiotics. But as of now he is off of them. Grace we noticed getting a rash yesterday and it kind looks like her excema but kinda doesn't. Her bottle of antibiotics is still full and she only takes 1/2 ML 2x a day which is a super tiny amount, so we want to see how much longer she needs to be on the antibiotics for.
As for me...no Mrsa in site!
Today I had my prenatal. Yay! Nothing new really, the usual pee in a cup, get weighed, blood pressure, listen to the heartbeat, measure your stomach. I think I may have gained a pound in 2 weeks but I can't for sure remember last weeks weight. I am now on weekly prenatals, and will be 34 weeks tomorrow! Woo Hoo! At 35 weeks they test for the Group B Strep which I had with Grace. I asked the dr if since I had it with Grace then they don't have to test again or what not, but its just a swab down there and they test it to see if you have more or less colonized or something. So just because I had it before doesn't mean I will have it again. Is what the doc said.
The one bummer that I have been experiencing more and more especially this week is sciatic nerve pain. That kills me, because I will be walking around and suddenly I get a shooting pain from my butt down my thigh and it just takes my breath away! I can barely walk and my face contorts to a grimace I am sure.
But this lil man has not slowed down in his movements for sure! Especially as I have been writing this post for the last 20 minutes! Rolling and stretching and kicking in all his favorite spots!
I was able to pick up a book on HypnoBirthing today at the used book store by my work for only 5 bucks! Normally 20! I am going to read it and see what techniques I can pick up for having the baby without an epidural.
This weekend we plan to can some tomatoes, they are finally coming on and are eagerly sitting on our counter waiting to be canned.
Also some more relaxing for sure because as you can tell from my lack of blog posting I am not in the mood for doing anything!

Now we are watching a movie and relaxing!

I also have to call my OB on Monday, apparently their office was closed today and let him know so he can take any precautions needed for the lil brother. We are thankful that he is still safely tucked inside his Mama's womb growing big and strong (very strong) and not here for when we are dealing with this. I am of course to be washing my hands regularly and all the other things we have to do with this as well.

But this morning when I was getting Grace ready I noticed she had a lil pimple looking thing filled with puss on her knuckle on her pinky finger. I was going to try to drain it, but because a.) she was super cranky this morning and b.) I realized that is how Daddy's infection started as well, I decided not too.
I called and scheduled her an appointment at her pediatrician's office tomorrow morning and hopefully they will have it cultured and what not. Now that daddy knows and his home and has seen her finger (which by the way does look worse tonight, more red and swollen) he is worried. Which of course makes me worried. So I am asking for prayer requests again that our sweet little girl DOES NOT have MRSA. Not to mention that if she does, she probably won't be able to go to daycare either.
So that is our news, please keep our baby girl in your prayers that everything turns out to be nothing.
We love and appreciate you all!

These videos were taking last week I think. Daddy was playing with the diaper box and Grace learned how climb on the diaper box to get to higher things. Soon we might have a baby climbing out of her crib, because a couple of times I have seen her try to climb into her crib. Ha Ha. Anyways, I just wanted to post these videos because tonight I had a TIRED CRANKY BABY! Yes we had about 5 or 6 different melt downs and finally went to bed early with no dinner, and then woke up about an hour later for about 10 min. I thought she felt hot but she was didn't have a tempature so we calmed back down and went back to sleep. I am sending up a prayer that is the last time that happens tonight.
Off to bed!

But on a cheerier side yesterday we had a ton of fun. We went to Golden Corral for breakfast and used a super coupon, then we went off to Costco and Wal-Mart. I got my tub I wanted for Grace's toys as part of my organzing her room (which I worked on a lil bit today). Grace however was melting down in Wal Mart and I should have agreed with Daddy and taken that child out of the store, but we didn't and mommy learned a valuable lesson that sometimes you can't do it all!
We came home for a nap in which both Mommy and Grace slept delightfully long! Then we woke up and decided to go to the State Fair. Grace loved it but decided she would just have us stroll her along the whole time. (Mommy wished she could have gotten pushed around in a stroller by the end of the the night) When is was dark we were iver by the rides and Grace saw the lights from the rides and the music and she kept shrieking! So funny. I got it on video. She would scream and then dance, she just loved it!
Here is my latest pregnancy shot for you, almost 32 weeks here!

You can kinda see her lip in this picture. Yesterday she tripped and hit her upper lip on a table. Poor baby her lip is all raw and looks like rug burn. :(

I thought you might enjoy some more pensive Miss Potato Head Glass Wearer.
So on a side note I decided to stop obessing about the cloth diapers for awhile. :) Good idea right? Daddy and my mom both told me to just wait a while and I can save up for exactly how many I want. I still haven't pinned down an exact number in my head but I am officially putting it out there that if people want to give gifts for the new lil boy then I am requesting FuzziBunz One Sized Pocket Diapers. Of course we don't really need anything else for a baby and we have gender neutral clothes from Grace up 3-6 month. This aint our first rodeo! LOL!

Last night I slept cruddy. I was tossing and turning all over the place and I think I was keeping Daddy up and he was keeping me up. I totally overslept this morning and felt like I was draggin all day. I don't know what it is lately but this week I have been in a weird mood. Like for instance I have been totally disinterested in dinner, eating it or cooking it. And so I get home and just want to feed Grace and then go to bed myself. Also I keep saying I am going to get belly pics but dont have the desire or energy. I have had more heartburn lately and have been trying to keep my late night dessert snacking to right after I put Grace down around 8pm otherwise it adds to my discomfort. I am a tired, uncomfortable, grouchy pregnant mess. I slipped on dog slobber tonight in the hallway and had a mini meltdown because it scared me and daddy too! He was in the kitchen and didn't see me just heard me yelp and came running. Poor Grace she probably was like, "Mommy?" Then when I was trying to change Grace my arm was stinging and I looked and had like wall burns on my forearm. I honestly dont remember getting them. It just sucks being so huge and clumsy and waddling everywhere and being out of breath all the time.
