This is my life!

So, I am not writing this for anyone to feel bad for me, I just thought I would share my luck. As most of you know, I have an auto-immune disease which puts me at high risk in my pregnancy. I have to see my Rheumatologist monthly, my normal OB and now a Perinatologist. I start with this new doctor next week. I have been told by all of my doctor's, and will be told again on Tuesday when I visit this new doctor, of my risks of carrying this baby and the many things that can go wrong. Of course, Kory and I try to stay positive and try to keep in mind that I had a healthy pregnancy before, I can do it again. I know they only tell me these things because they have to, but we are well aware by now of the possible complications.
So, on to the new ordeal...

On Sunday I developed a strange pain near my right shoulder blade. I had Kory rub it and he looked at it and told me he thought I had been bit by something. I went and looked at it myself and sure enough, it looked like something had bit me a few times. I didn't really think much of it. A few days went by and the strange bumps were still there and they were sore. A friend I work with, took a look at it and said it looked like shingles to her. So, of course I got worried and decided to go see the doctor. After three hours at the doctor last night, I was finally diagnosed with shingles. So, being the worrier I am, I looked online at the possible ocomplications and have now worried myself sick. They prescribed me an anti-viral medication to take but it's a category C drug, so they don't know how it will affect the baby!

I called my mother-in-law and had her talk to the pharmacist and she said she would take the drug. So, if my doctor and the pharmacist say they advantages outweigh the risks, I guess I take the drug.

As if I don't have enough to worry about with this pregnancy. I guess with the stress of moving and school and everything, I gave myself shingles. Ahh man! Just call me SHINGLY GIRL. I pray that things will be fine, and of course I have been told it's so rare to get shingles while pregnant. But I am always the exception.

Parker's Funnies

I really need to post about Parker's birthday and post some pic's--but because of our move, and the lack of internet at home, I can't post pictures yet. Hopefully soon. So, stayed tuned for Parker's birthday post! I know, you are just dying to see pictures.

For now, I will share a funny...
Last night, Parker and I were sitting on the couch and I leaned over and kissed his cheek. He turned to me and said, "No mom, don't kiss my cheek, kiss ME!", and he puckered up his lips. So, I gave him a kiss on his lips and tried to tell him that his cheek is a part of him and that I was kissing him. Then I kissed him on the nose and he said, "No, don't kiss my nose, kiss me!", and once again, puckered up his lips. It was the funniest thing. I think he meant to say, kiss my lips and not kiss me, but it was just too funny.

You Belong in 1991!

Sadly, I aleady knew this about myself. So what, I still love the old 90210 and Girbaud that so bad?

You Belong in 1991

With you anything goes! You're grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It's all good!
