* BABY UPDATE! I returned my heart monitor... but no news yet on what they did or did not find. I'm assuming that's good news but who the heck knows anymore! Also, I went to my appointment on Tuesday and sat through a miserable 4 hour sugar test and then went to an appointment on Thursday and found out that I'ma be okay. They lifted my bed rest curse but informed me that little baby Declan isn't so little. There is talk of an amniocentesis being done at 36 weeks to check on his lung maturity. If my doctor feels like he's safe, they're going to induce so I can deliver the baby naturally (like we all want). Both my doctor and I fear that waiting could cause complications due to his size. 'Why?" you might ask when my first delivery was so wonderful? Only 45 minutes of labor, 3 pushes, and a few stitches. Wait. Back dat train up. STITCHES. I'm lying, it was NOT wonderful and it HURT like HELL because I tore the WRONG WAY andIneverwantittohappenagain.
Ladies, delivering a 10 pound baby has NEVER been on my list of 'Things I Want to Accomplish One Day'.
* I am THRILLED so many people saw my blog and FB page during our co-hosted hop and decided to jump on this bandwagon! Not only am I flattered that I was even asked to participate, but I find it so encouraging to know you gals are actually reading. I plan to spend the rest of my day, after this post, returning the admiration one victim at a time!
* Next week, on the first, I'm going to host my own blog hop again but this time it's going to be for us lovelies that have Twitter accounts. This blog hop isn't like the rest... it's not an invitation to sign up just to acquire numbers. All you do is pledge to pick one or two or more link up participants a day to promote shamelessly to your own followers in hopes that they will take note and fall in love with the people you love, too. I had a GREAT response last time when we did it for Facebook pages and I hope to see the same trend unfold this time!
* I need your help. Have any of you ever participated in or headed up a community project? I am considering starting a non-profit team in my town to save/repair a building that desperately needs someone's attention. I could seriously use some pointers on how to begin.
