Forty Four

That's how many pounds I need to lose post baby. I technically only have four pounds to lose to get back to pre-pregnancy weight, but not being able to eat for nine months is kinda haunting me right now, because all I want to do is eat EVERYTHING!!

I figure, I will give myself another week since I am still trying to recover from pushing out a nine pound baby, and then it's balls to the walls for losing this weight.

38 Weeks tomorrow....

And I am STOKED!!!

I have an OB appointment today, so I am hoping for some good news. If I don't have any good news, I still get to look forward to Jan 16th.. which I go in at 8pm for my SECOND blood transfusion... stay the night and then get induced on the morning on the 17th!! I am still hoping I go on my own before then, but if I don't then I know I only have a week left.

And let me tell you I am READY...

I am ready to eat again.. my last full meal was in July when I was admitted to the hospital for a week.. since then it has just been my TPN (liquid I food) and ice chips.

I am ready to get this Picc Line out of my arm, so I don't have to lug around a black back pack with my IV in it.

I am ready to not be swollen from all the fluid intake I have had.

I am ready to lose this weight that I have so not enjoyed gaining. It's amazing that still without me eating and just getting these fluids how much weight I have gained. Granted the IV fluid bags that I have daily are 3,000 calories, it's still  crazy to me.

I am ready for this hormonal acne to go away on my chin too, I am not use to having all these nards on my face and it's driving me NUTS!

And last but not least.. I am ready to meet my son.. Chris and I can't wait to see what he looks like.

Again.. here's to hoping for good news at the Doctors this afternoon.
