So I have been recovering a lot quicker than I thought I would. I'm off my pain meds and it doesn't really hurt very much anymore to move around. just when I sneeze. hahah ouch. I went to the doc yesterday and my incision looks great. I've lost 33 lbs! isn't it great to have a baby!? best diet ever. Sophie is sleeping very well. she went to bed at 10pm last night and slept till 330 when i woke her up to eat and change her cause i'm paranoyd and then she went back to bed till 830. hahahha its great. for my previos blog... NO WAY I WANNA HAVE ONE NOW! I'm talking about 2 years from now I'll get pregnant. come on... I'm nuts but not THAT nuts!

Hello everyone! I'm back from the dead. hahaha ok no. Sophie is now a week old and things are settling down. She has started sleeping at night so thats nice. she sleeps about 3 hrs at a time... she rarely cries so its really nice. she is a sweet little thing. we went to the doctor yesterday and she has already gained 2 ounces. they said she grew 1 inch but i'm just guessing they measured her wrong cause thats a lot on a week. if she keeps it up she'll be as tall as me in 3 months. hahaah anywho...Labor was long and totally different from what was planned. I went in on Tue morning for a Non stress test and my contractions were 6 mins apart and very consistent. Sophie's heart beat would dip before some contractions and since i was a week overdue they just induced me then instead of thurs. so i started on pletosin (no idea on spelling) and my blood pressure was pretty high so they put me on magnesium... oh if i would have known the side effects... my body wasn't getting rid of the magnesium fast enough so it was overdosing and making me very sick and making me very very loopy. i couldn't stay awake. I started pushing at around 3 am on wed morning. i pushed until 530 but she wasn't dropping because she was posterior. so all my labor was on my back. My liver and kidneys were not doing so hot and were starting to fail a bit so they just decided to do a C-section to be safe and not stress the baby out anymore. so at 5:59 on wed the 19th she was born. oh momma what a labor... but sign me up! i'll do it again in a heart beat.

So, her mother and I have decided that we absolutely love this girl. This morning Cake was telling me that she never realized how attached to her she was until we didn't get her back until 9 am this morning.
Ok, so i've been trying to upload pictures of our new daughter, and for some reason the internet at the hospital won't let me. So, if you want to see pictures, either email or go to the Johnson Family page. They have some.
This is Derek, I'm writing for Cake because right now she's in pain on the bed, waiting for our cupcake to come out. Thank Goodness! I'm sure she'll want to post something tomorrow after our troublemaker is born, but as for now, know that it should be soon!

I've liked being pregnant so much that I decided... why not STAY pregnant?! hahaha ok no. I'm done. but I guess she wants to hang out a little bit longer in my belly. oh well. I'll keep ya posted!

NO! I haven't had the baby yet. I'm just waiting and waiting... I got less than a week till my due date! its nuts to think about it. I finally stopped working and let me tell ya it feels weird not having a job. I'm gonna miss all my friends there but its nice to have time to take care of things around the house before Sophie comes and I don't even have time to breathe. I am STILL sleeping pretty dang well. I have come to the point where I HAVE to get up to use the potty in the middle of the night and have a glass of milk for my heart burn but I am sleeping pretty well. I have some days where I have braxtons and sometimes some strong ones but still nothing consistant. I'm guessing I'll prob end up being enduced or something. I go to the Doc again on Monday so I will let you know!!

HI ladies! so I just got back from my 39 week appointment and the doctor was very pleased! she said I'm dilated to a three and i'm 80%! she doesn't think I'll make it to next week. She tried to strip my membranes but she said everything was so soft and ready to go that there was pretty much nothing to strip. The head is really low and she said when I start to get contractions to get my butt to the hospital cause my cervix and the baby are so ready to go!!! we will keep you informed if I have her before next monday when I have my 40 week apointment!!! wish me luck!
