Why wait when we can start the party now?10:43:00 PMCourtney Hale
So you know that little elephant ticker in the header of my blog that says 33 days until Sophie arrives? Apparently it knows nothing b/c ready or not, she is coming early.
That's right. I had my doctor's appointment today and with all my confidence that "it was just PUPPPS" it turns out that I have a few other issues going on and now little Sophie does too. (watch "medical update" vlog to hear me get into it) Basically... I am too swollen, too itchy, have too much protein in my urine (again), slightly too high blood pressure (by my normal BP standards).... and so on and so on and have reached the point where my body has decided I am too pregnant to be normal. No clue why. As for Baby Hale, well she has too much flow through her umbilical cord which can cause respiratory issues as well as worse problems if the flow decides to go the other way.
So... shopping spree! Tonight we bought just about everything in our self-made category 1 (aka: items we deemed needed before she comes). It turned out to be a lot. It is all lying on her floor b/c we were exhausted by the time we got home and I will fix it all up this weekend.
I am doing surprisingly well. I think I got the majority of my freaking out done after my last Dr.'s appointment and now I have just accepted that this is all happening and so it goes.
I am SUPER excited to see her.
I was going to write more... but I am SO tired. And itchy. And sore. :) Vlog watch instead!
