The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

A little update.

Sorry I haven't posted in so long. Things have been nuts. But, I am feeling a bit better. I am finally on the right med and the right dosage. This one controls both the high blood pressure and my racing heart. But, then I got some weird thyroid results.

So, I this weekend, I wore a holter monitor, got a thyroid sono and some more blood work (my poor veins). Now, I have to make an appointment with an endocrinologist.

But, I am feeling much better. We even took Liam to the beach today for a nice slow two mile walk on the boardwalk. He slept through it and didn't think it was too impressive. But, we were so peaceful and happy. Dh and I held hands and relaxed the whole way.

However, 5 weeks of bedrest, high blood pressure, medication and giving birth (not to mention sleep deprivation) have turned me to mush. I am so tired from the walk and my legs are so sore. I guess I have some work to do in order to get back into shape. We bought a year long empire pass so now I can get into all the state parks this summer without paying a fee (hence, no excuse to not go out and walk!)

Liam is doing amazing. I have been blessed with the sweetest baby God ever created. He is so good. Seriously, he sleeps so much, only really cried when he's hungry, (okay sure, his little fussy time is later in the evening.. but, that's still pretty low key). Nursing is good. He is so healthy. He gained a pound in a week. He is now 7 pounds at 2 weeks old! He is filling out his clothes well. It's so funny when people tell me how small he is... I feel like he looks so much bigger than when he was born!

So, here's some pictures of the "L-man".
