Baby arrived!

March 20th, 2011 at 05:37 pm

Baby girl arrived at about 7 this morning. All 9 lbs 7 ozs of her. (Did I mention mom was fairly petit)...sounds like there were stitches involved afterwards...but mom and baby did great. Now the real work begins.

Because she went into labor last night...DD3 convinced the hub to drive home in a snowstorm. They got here a little after 1am...and now I am having coffee while watching some testosterone gun show. :/

Not quite the quiet morning Id planned, but oh well.

It sure felt good to get up to a clean bedroom. My cats are NOT happy with me...but they will adjust. The no animal in bedroom rule is solid. I want a place that is fur free.

Still got the spring cleaning bug this we shall see where the day takes me. I do wanna go visit the new mommy...make sure shes getting good advice and information.

Interesting...I have felt much more inergetic lately and it just dawned on me that I am on week three of the 50k units of vitamin D...that, combined with the sleep from not wheezing all night is starting to pay off I think. wow.

I did not get to see the supermoon last night. Frown Total cloud cover here.

I mentioned that I helped kiddos out this past my checking account is empty...but I do have $40 in my wallet...I want to make that last and not dip into savings. I am going to dinner with a friend tomorrow I will HAVE to budget carefully to make it til Friday when I get paid again. hmm....unless, that is someone needs $$ help again this week. sigh.

    Mind if I ask if your doctor gave you any info on how long it might take to build up your Vit D level?

    Wow! Big baby Big Grin Conrats to the mom. I'll be wishing her all the best from here.

    Glad to hear you're feeling more perky.

    Joan of the Arch- sure. Doctor gave me 8 weeks of 1 pill per week. (the pills have 50k units in each) Then, I have to have blood re-tested and will go on an over-the-counter vitamin plan. It is not recommended to stay on this dosage any longer than that. My pharmacist daughter says they fill this type of perscription frequently and that it usually gets vitamin d levels back up to normal. I am sure my energy is a combination of the vit d and new inhaler/no wheeze...but I am more focused and more energetic than Ive been in a looooong time!

    Thanks. Interesting that it can be remedied quickly.
