Howdy To Those Who Really Care

So, while on the phone with my Huckleberry, I found out that someone is printing off my blog and passing it around the company we used to work at. HOW FUNNY! So, to those of you who are doing so...SAY HI!!!!!!!!!!! I am soooo proud that someone thinks that we are so interesting that they pass my blog out. Or maybe I am overestimating myself....Who knows.

Huck is in Dallas. Yay for him! His CDL test is Wednesday, and then the week after that is his road test in the BIG truck. Then from there he should be going on the road. So we are jazzed. I HATE being away from him.

I did soooo good last night when I dropped him off. I dropped him off, teared up a little bit, and then turned around and left without looking back. I was accosted by a middle aged lady who asked if he was a truck driver, and I said, "He is now." I was still a little teary-eyed, but she talked to me and told me it will get better. I BROKE DOWN last night after I had a panic attack at home, but after talking to Huck, and then my Daddy, I am much better. YAY!

I just got back from church tonight, and the message was great. It was about being consumed by God, and seeking God with desperation. Bro. Roger challenged us to pray this week without ceasing, spend more time in our Bible, and to try to have a spiritual awareness every day, and every moment. I am really going to try. So, I guess I need to go, because I have to decide where I want to start reading in my Bible. But, anyways. Pray for us. This is going to be hard.

P.S. Pray for my friend Dustin.

He Will NOT Stop Crying!!

"He will NOT stop crying!"
That phrase characterized my son's first few months of life. Screaming, crying with no relief. Change the diaper, change the clothes, feed him, rock him. NOTHING HELPED!!
And I heard it all. "Oh he's colicky." and "well, he's just an irritable baby" (that gem was from his pediatrician) and "flip him end to end" and "he's just manipulating you" (yes- the four month old baby). 
I was an emotional, confused mess. All I could think was there was SOMETHING wrong with my sweet boy. I KNEW it. And no one would listen except my husband. As a first time mom, albeit a "maternally advanced" mom, you get treated like you just don't know. You get dismissed. But I digress.
Did you know that the sound of an infant's cries are used in torture? I am not surprised. Listening to the boy child cry was pure torture and all I could do was cry with him.
I went round and round with doctors, who wouldn…

Post Partum Depression: The Myth

I used to be like everyone. I figured PPD was mostly just a sad woman with a newborn who's hormones were  out of whack. Then when my son was born, we experienced a pretty traumatic birth and C section. My milk never came in. I started Reglan to help produce milk and it caused PPD. I saw a doctor, got off the meds, stopped trying to breastfeed, simple right? I'm fixed. 
Except it's not that simple. Yesterday my son turned 9 months old and I still struggle daily with PPD. Turns out it wasn't "just the medication". I'm in school full time. I don't work. I'm blessed to have my surprise miracle son, as well as the opportunity to stay home with him. But that's not right either, because PPD doesn't care how blessed you are. This is the silent struggle. The stigma. Sure, once we're all being candid behind our screens we'll talk about it. With strangers. With "internet friends". I mean, if you talk about it with PEOPLE you'll b…

High Risk Appointments and Ligament Stretching

Because I am going to be 35 when the baby is born, as well as my Hughes Syndrome, my OB thought it best that we consult with a high risk doctor at Maternal Fetal Medicine from UAB.  I was 10 weeks for that appointment and everything went great. They did an ultrasound and Andrew got to see the baby for the first time. Apparently our little Turner hears the music because during the ultrasound he was bobbing his head, almost like it was in tune to music.

This is 10 weeks of baby. My ligament stretching and pain has started and today it's been pretty bad. I can tell I'm pregnant thanks to my belly and I'm pretty shocked that I'm this big this fast. That being said, somehow, somewhere, I'm going to have to find a bra that holds these babies in. Because that is the other place that I'm rapidly expanding. 
Little Turner is growing quickly as well. Everything looked great. Heartbeat and all. And of course Daddy Andrew was just flabbergasted and excited.

So apparently e…
