 It's been over 3 years but finally I am updating my blog! Lately I have been on bed rest, and will be until my little guy decides to come into this world. Needless to say I have quite a bit of time on  my hands, and I can journal more. 

 These are our newest family pictures taken by my bestie Rachel Richardson. I love this one of all my kids. They are so dang good looking to me!

 The absolute love of my life! I would be so lost without him. I LOVE you Babe!

Man I miss my hubby and kids so much! I am staying at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix 4 1/2 hours away from them! We get to do face time every now and then, but it's not the same. I will be here for quite a while. Not sure exactly when my precious little boy will come into this world, best case scenario I will make it to 34 weeks (May 31), but he will have to be here until his original due date of July 12, 2013. They don't think I will make it to 34 weeks but they will definitely try and keep me pregnant as long as possible. I am 26 weeks today, next goal is to make it to 28! He has done well for the most part, but he has some dips in his heart rate almost everyday. Nothing too bad, but enough to where they want to monitor him closely. The other day (Wednesday) I was bleeding more than I normally did and I was having some contractions, so they put me on magnesium just in case things got worse and they had to deliver. The bleeding had died down by night time, but his heart rate wasn't as steady as they liked it so they didn't let me have dinner that night. I didn't sleep well, they didn't let me eat breakfast and couldn't tell me when I could eat, so I was an emotional wreck and so exhausted!. I was afraid to call anyone cause I couldn't even talk and they would have thought I lost the baby. Thankfully I was able to calm down and his heart rate had been good for a while so they let me eat at 10 am and then they took me off the magnesium. That stuff is horrible! I hope I do not have to do that again any time soon! Today has been a good day and I hope it stays that way!
