8 weeks

Called the doctor today to book our first appt for baby check up and was told because I had a cone biopsy 5 years ago that they might have to stitch up my cervix! How scary is that??? Of course I only spoke to the nurse/appt clerk... Why do they do that...... Now I'll worry about it until Sept 20th. I know everyone will say that everything will be ok, but until I speak to MY DOCTOR, I won't be able to rest easy! The nurse/appt clerk said that since I have a piece of my cervix missing our chances of holding the baby full term can are slim! I HATE that! I have a friend who had her sweet baby girl at 28 weeks, and I went back and read some of her blogs from her and sweet little one in the hospital! She has so much strength! So much courage! With 3 kids already at home I find myself wondering if I'll be able to find those?!?!
I know I'm rambling, but I'm TERRIFIED!!!
Why bother telling me!!!!!!!

Our Vacation! the first three days

Some of you might already know that we were on Vacation last week in Niagara Falls. (photo's to follow) Now that we're back I can write all about it... I did bring my lap top with me on this holiday but when camping you don't always have the means and the time (day light) to write...

Day one: After bringing Comet to the kennel, we stuffed the car, and took off. 2 and a half hours later, I finally had my little bugger back in my arms (5 weeks is way too long) and off to Rockport for a cruise that lead us to Boldt Castle. What a stunning place. The English gardens a well kept, the grass is fresh cut, and the inside that has been restored is BREATHTAKING!!! We even made a few wishes and threw some quarters in the pool. The 2 hours cruise that brought us there led us by the smallest international bridge, some awesome Victorian homes built on remote islands, we even saw some gals/guys cliff jumping (BTW that is so going on my bucket list) 30 mins after docking we arrived in Kingston at our camping site. We had quite and friendly neighbors from Gulph who were there to visit their 16 yr old son who was on leave from the Military Collage.

Day two: Up and Adam and off we go to Fort Henry. My grandparents took me to Fort Henry when I was a little girl, and I'm still awwed at the way it's run there. It's animated with students who dress up and act like they were living in the 1800's. Although Fort Henry has never seen Battle, it's still very interesting to see how times have changed... Can you imagine going to the bathroom in here....

After our trip to Fort Henry, we went to the pool at camping site, and relaxed waterfront!

Day 3: Off to Niagara we go(after stuffing the car again of course). Traffic was on our side and we made good time. We arrived at our new camping site and set up by 4:00PM. Off to dinner we went. "Can you believe the prices in tourist area's... 5 pers at Pizza Hut over 130$" After an overly expensive dinner we went to the main square for a ride on the Skywheel. This was Monday, a holiday in Ontario, so the fire works were all out! Check out the view..

We bought a package rate for the Skywheel that gave us access to the Movie Land Wax Museum, Ripley's Believe it or Not, mini putt, arcade tokens, and two other little rides that were fun, but I can't remember the names (ghost something, and FX ride of something) I bet the kids can tell me!

Phew! I'm tired already!

Embrace your body week

One of my new followers is part of "Embrace your Body week" And my personal thought is... What a wonderful way to empower us women to think positive about ourselves.

As a new generation mom things like taking a little time to myself are not easy to come by. I find myself always running around for the kids.

Today I think of myself and not the negative stuff like that since being told that I have Hypothroidism my weight has been jumping back and forth by 35lbs or so, NOT fun, I have two different closets small and large!!! Having carried two kids as most mom's there is the love handle issue, and the less then perky breasts!

Today I will concentrate on the things that I like about myself, and just maybe I'll take the time to go pamper myself?!

1- I love my eyes!!! Being born with parents of brown and blue eyes I ended up with green eyes that reflect all sorts of different colors. (gray, blue, gold)

2-I love that I have natural highlights in my hair. I guess that comes from my Dutch heritage.
That's about it! I will focus on those for today, and smile!
What do you like about yourselves???
Make sure to check out The Mommyologist and embrace your good!
