Jacob Nicholas Schieltz arrived 12/10/07 at 7:18am after 20 hours of labor and 3 hours of pushing! He weighed 7lbs 7oz and was 20 in long. He has a head full of dark hair and is perfect! He had a bit of a rough start though, as he aspirated meconium and had to be intubated and put on a ventilator. I can not describe how horrible it was. He recovered very quickly though and was off the vent in a few hours and off oxygen by the next morning. Due to the intubation, he has a very irritated airway and is having some trouble with choking, so he has to stay in the special care nursery for another week or so. I was discharged Wednesday and I can't tell you how hard it was to leave the hospital without our baby. This week has been a total roller coaster. Jake is doing very well and is off all oxygen and IVs, but still has to stay monitored and be without incident for a week before we can bring him home. He has been without incident since yesterday morning, so we're keeping our fingers crossed and praying that he keeps it up. We live about 10 min from the hospital, so we've been going three times a day to see him and so I can nurse him. Hes a lot better every time we see him. It breaks my heart every time we leave him, but I know hes where he needs to be. I'm feeling pretty good physically, but very tired and so ready to have my baby boy home. I know this post is short, but I need to go pump and go to bed. I'll update more later.

let me just tell you how awesome my husband is. a conversation earlier made me realize how fabulous he is. he takes such good care of me. hes always worrying over me and doing things to make me feel better. we had our first child birth class last night, and as an exercise to practice relaxing and breathing, the husband was supposed to squeeze the wife's hand as hard as he could. he couldn't do it, he is incapable of hurting me. 

the women i work with all complain about their husbands and it drives me crazy. if you don't like him, why'd you marry him? i understand that all marriages have bumpy parts, we have them too, but it seems like these women all have a parent/child relationship with their husbands rather than a partnership.  i love him!

i had my first baby shower last weekend. got lots of nice things, but i'm realizing how much i still need! babies require a lot of crap! and i don't even buy into all the toys/bouncers/play mats. i think wipe warmers sound like a mildew problem waiting to happen, and i'm planning to breastfeed, but i still need bottles for pumping and burp clothes, and washclothes and diapers, etc! this is going to be expensive!

feeling good, getting fat, feeling the baby move a LOT! nick can finally feel it move too. 

not much new going on. my work go hit by lightning yesterday, so it was interesting . none of our door alarms or call lights worked, so most of my day was spent checking on residents every hour and lots of taking residents to the bathroom. not a fun way to spend the day. today wa better, although the computers were still screwed up and power was on and off all day. 

otherwise work is good, home is good. pregnancy is good.

i will never understand the fascination of touching a pregnant woman's belly. random strangers somehow feel they have the right to molest my stomach. i'm going to start slapping people. I don't even let my family touch my belly! its not like they can feel the baby move or something. only i can at this point. 

i like having a baby belly, i just don't like having it touched!

this week has sucked and its only tuesday. sunday night i went to columbus to see a Hinder concert (the ticket was free) and spend some time with my friend, Derek, for his birthday. The concert was ehh. the two opening bands sucked and Hinder came on really late and only played for like 30 min. I had a good time with derek and some other friends though. monday i had to get up early, rush home from columbus to be at work by 11:30 for a meeting, go to class at 12, turn in my paper and go back to work until 5 when i had to go to chemistry and take a quiz. needless to say, monday was hectic!! oh, and nick left for san antonio again monday morning. :o(

this morning i overslept, had 3 meetings and all of the palms (we do all of our billing/charting on palms) at work decided to stop working/act up, so i got to spend all afternoon on the phone with IT. tonight i had to put together my presentation for tomorrow and study for my chem test tomorrow night.

i'm feeling all emo and blah too. i think its the weather/the fact that nick is gone. again. i hate all of this traveling crap. plus, cooper is in the shitter and hes already been told that there won't be any raises, bonuses, or even cost of living increases this year. fabulous. that really boosts morale knowing that no matter how much/little work you do, you won't get anything for it. bleh.

i need to quit putting off studying.

hey all

havent been around much lately. school and work are keeping me busy. work has not been fun lately. one of my co-workers got fired last week. for no real reason. i know a family member complained about her, but thats certainly nothing new, and no one has been fired over it! makes one a little nervous. we've been crazy busy and have lots of new regulations being implemented. nothing fun.

school is pretty good this semester, nothing too challenging. i'm hoping for a 4.0 this time.

nick is sick right now. hes complaining of a stomach ache and body aches. i hope he's better in the morning. i don't sleep well when he's sick, i worry and wake up every time he moves. i need a good nights sleep, i already know that tomorrow is going to be a crazy day at work. i hate it when nick is sick.

i have nothing interesting to say. lol.
