Update

Well I really have not put up any baby updates and after this week I this week I thought I should. On Sunday I woke up not feeling great. I called my doctor and they thought it could be one of two things, a bladder infection or kidney stones. I was hopping it was just a bladder infection. As the day went on it was clear that the pain was kidney stones. The pain went away by the time I went in to see my doctor on Monday afternoon. He definitely thought it was a kidney stone and since the pain was gone I must have passed it. I was relieved. The pain I felt on Sunday was painful but manageable. I even thought to myself man kidney stones are nothing. I have had worst pain. But then Monday night the pain hit again. I tried to be tough and made it until 1 am Tuesday morning. I realized I was in trouble when I started praying that I would pass out so that I could not feel the pain anymore. Ryan took me to the hospital and they hooked me up to an IV and finally gave me some pain pills. They also started monitoring the baby. Thank heavens the problem seemed to only be with me. The baby looked great on the monitors. Her heart rate was strong and steady. Well they think the stones have passed because I have been pain free since Thursday. I am so happy to be pain free. We are starting to get excited for this new baby to join our family. We still have not picked a name. Suggestions are welcome! I am just grateful that she seems healthy. Lilly has been working on calling herself the "big sister" for a time she would say that she was the "big baby". I think she will make a great big sister.
