Another stressful week!

After 2 nights in a row of no sleep and feeling pretty horrid, I ended up in the ER the other night. Half of it is a blur now but I just remember being in so much pain and crying my eyes out. I didn't want to go anywhere since it was about midnight, but I finally decided to go just to check things out. When I got there and they hooked me up to all the wonderful machines, I was having contractions every 3 minutes. Then I kind of freaked out a bit. I was so scared my entire body was shaking from head to toe. Luckily they were able to give me something to stop the labor; I just thank God that I went to the hospital when I did! I had this nurse though that could not put an IV in at all. She ended up blowing 2 of my veins and now 2 days later my right hand is all black and blue and hurts so bad! Plus she tried to put the IV in down near my wrist, which is a really nasty place to stick a needle in! That hurt worse than the contractions and the back pain. I honestly almost passed out! Anyway, Alex is perfect though, so that's all that matters. I am way beyond stressed out and exhausted though. Feeling a bit better today, just really tired. My mind is at ease (at least for the time being) because they were able to do a test that will tell whether or not I'm going to go into labor within the next 2 weeks, and it came back negative. I can't believe they can find that out through a little test! But at least I can rest easy-for the next 2 weeks anyway! So I am resting at home for the weekend, then going back to work and life on Monday. I've had a few nasty contractions today, but I think they are just those stupid Braxton Hicks. I just want the rest of this pregnancy to be drama free!!

That's about all for now, I'm going to go lay down and enjoy the peace and quiet while my little monster isn't here! Poor thing doesn't understand what is going on and doesn't want to leave my side! I just hate that I can't pick him up all the time. Poor little guy is going to be so jealous of Alex! I've felt so guilty lately I've been buying him new toys or movies or making him special snacks! I hope he doesn't get used to it. :) I just feel so bad for all the changes! I know he won't mind in a few years though when he and Alex are best friends, and they'll always have someone to play with!!

I have some new things to show you later when I get the energy! Made some pretty cute cards for Mother's Day, plus I finally finished Aaron's potty layout! Also bought myself some new goodies the other day to make myself feel better! :) Hope you are all well, and thanks for stopping by!

Aw Becky, I'm so sorry to hear that you ended up in the ER! The vein finding can be extremefully difficult if you are dehydrated at all, but it sounds like she didn't know what she was doing! I hope you get a lot of rest this weekend! Take care of yourself!

Becky, I'm sorry that you had to go through all of this, but I'm so glad they were able to stop the contractions and baby Alex is okay. Today's technology is amazing. You and your family are in my prayers. Take care of yourself and try to rest!

Hugs to you, Becky:)
