Friday Weigh Day, A Baby and Food Poisoning!

I would like to start off by saying Happy Mothers day to all the mothers and mother's to be out there.  I can not wait till the day I can join the club :)  I hope you all have an amazing day and are spoiled and appreciated for all you hard work.

This is a couple days late but here is the weight loss update.  I ended up having to weigh on Thursday as I got an email in the morning that my SIL's water had broken.  I wasn't sure if I would be able to weigh on Friday so I weighed Thursday instead.  Down 2 more lbs for a total of 16 so far. 

Speaking of my SIL's water breaking..... I am officially a new auntie.  Parker David entered the world around 5:02 a.m. on 5/7/2010 weighing in @ a healthy 7lbs 12oz and 21in long.  This was a great day to be born as it also happens to be his parternal granfathers birthday.  This is their first grandbaby so it is extra special.  My SIL was a trooper.  Her water broke at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening which means she was in labor for 34 1/2 hours!!  Holy Cow!! 

                                     Here is a picture of the little guy, he looks alot like his daddy.

The hubby and I are planning on going up next weekend to see him since my hubby didn't get to be there when he was born.  I can't wait to finally get to hold him and see how much he's changed since he was born. 

Congratulations to my BIL and SIL!!!

How does the food poisoning come in to play you ask? Well, I arrived at work Thursday morning to an email from my SIL's sister letting me know my SIL's water had broken the night before.  I was so excited I could barely think straight :) So I had a meeting that morning but the rest of my day was free.  I called my in-laws to see what their plans were as far as making the 2 1/2 hour drive to the hospital and they weren't planning on taking off for a couple of hours.  Since I have the best boss in the world I was able to go to my morning meeting and then leave for the day early enough to meet up with my in-laws and make the trip north to the hospital.  We arrived at around 1:00 in the afternoon and my SIL was still dressed but hooked up the the fetal monitors and able to talk through her contractions which meant the baby wasn't coming anytime soon.  So the in-laws and I decided to go get some lunch (since we had forgotten to eat with all the excitement) while we were waiting.  We went to a cute little brewery in town and I ordered Grilled Salmon and a garden salad.  About half way through my salmon I noticed that the entire inside was completely raw!  We said something to the waiter and I was given a new lunch with a FULLY cooked piece of salmon but the damage had already been done.  Soooo after no sleep in 29 hours (totally worth it to meet little Parker) and a lunch of raw fish I have spent the weekend with a very sower tummy :(  Luckely I am starting to feel much better just in time to celebrate Mothers Day with my family :)  Happy Mothers Day to all who are blessed with little miracles and little miracles too be and for those of us who are still waiting to be blessed with little miracles.
