30 weeks!

  Hey, all!  I've reached 30 weeks!  I only have about 10 weeks or so to go.  :D  I'm so ready to pop this kid out.  Lol.  I've been having some ligament pain and c-section scar pain, especially when I work for 8 hours or more on my feet.  I have my next doctor's appointment on July 3rd with the potential new doctor.  I'm really hoping she'll tell me that she'll take me on as a new patient and will allow me to try for a VBAC.   If not, I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do.  I mean, I like my doctor, but there is no way that I want to go through a RCS if it isn't absolutely medically necessary.  Unfortunately, this is causing me a lot of stress, which I know isn't good.  Trying to relax about it has been difficult.

Luckily, I have some exciting events coming up soon.  I have a 5k on July 4th with my Moms Run This Town group.  It's the Watermelon 5k put on by Track Shack and it's gonna be lots of fun!  I did it last year and had such a great time.  Matt's birthday is in just a couple of weeks and that means my best friend Kelly will be here!  I'm super excited to see her.  Matt has no idea she's coming down for his birthday and I can't wait to surprise him.  After that, I have the Moms Run This Town Virtual 5k in August.  Baby is due by mid-September, taking all of the different due dates I have into account.  Lol.  I'm telling you, I expect someone to bring me a drink after I deliver this kid.

Keepin you all updated

Hey, folks.  So, it's been about a month since I updated.  So, this is where things stand.  I'm still in the process of finding a new doctor for a VBAC.  I have an appointment on July 3rd with a potential new doctor.  She seems to be concerned with the time between the c-section and potential VBAC.  It'll be about 19 months between the two and the ideal time frame is 18-24 months.  I'm hoping after we talk about it, she'll take me on as a patient and allow me to try for a VBAC.  The parents are a little antsy, as am I, considering that I'll be about 28 weeks pregnant tomorrow.  Only a few more months to go and Baby Boy R will be here!

I walked a local 5k this past Saturday and while my time was horrible, I'm glad I got out there and did it.  I was almost last, but not quite, so I'll take it.  Lol.  My next 5k is on July 4th and I'm super excited for it!  It's a really big one for my mom running group.  Last year, we won the group competition and got $500 donated to a military charity in our name.  It was AWESOME!  After that, I'll have a 5k in the beginning of August with the moms and it's going to be so much fun!  It's for our summer virtual run.  The medals look pretty freakin sweet, as they do for every virtual we run.  :-)

In a month, my best friend, who is also Matt's godmother, will be here and we'll spend Matt's birthday together.  I've got his party all planned out.  We're having it at an indoor, glow-in-the-dark mini golfing place.  I can't wait!  He's going to have so much fun.  I can't believe he's going to be 5 and starting kindergarten in the fall!  He just graduated preschool last week.  Here are some pictures of him.  We went mini golfing afterwards to celebrate.  He's obsessed with the game.

After he graduated

Telling us where the ball is going to go

That's about it for now.  I'll keep you folks updated as things happen.  Wish me luck as I go through the heat of the summer for these last few months!
