The day before surgery at 4 months pregnant.....

185.2 today. All time low, no a total of -59 pounds. If you add in the baby, the uterus, the blood and fluid, I probably even lost more than what I think.

I have no idea why weight is just melting off these last couple weeks. I have been earnestly trying to eat a little fat and protein. Yesterday for breakfast I had an over easy egg, with a piece of toast. Lunch I took Cody to McDonalds for a happy meal, I even had two McNuggets (something I can't WAIT to eat more of btw) and 3/4 of a McDouble [but I took out one patty to save on fat], and a few french fries!! I just recently figured, you know, I get sick if all I eat is plain pasta. Might as well eat a little fat so my baby is not deprived, (although she has a lot she can have from my hips and behind). We ate dinner at church and I wasn't feeling hungry so all I had was a little corn and a tiny serving of chicken noodle soup. But I also allowed my self a little tiny bit of chocolate [okay, 2 Resses] yesterday. Yum. I still get pain, but it's the same pain if I ate only plain pasta, and fruit all day. Today I am eating really plain food so nothing is aggrivated for tomorrow.

To say I am nervous is an understatement. I registered at the hospital yesterday and went over everything..... I will have a breathing tube down my throat. Yikes. I shouldn't feel it when I wake up but I am scared I will and gag!! I am most nervous about my nerves in the couple hours preping for the surgery. I can't eat or drink ANYTHING after midnight tonight. I have to shower with this special antibacterial wash they gave me and not put ANYTHING on my skin after. My husband said, "Uh oh. That is so not like you." lol I am addicted to water, chapstick, and lotion. :/
I am praying and praying the doctors will have steady hands, and my gallbladder won't be infected so they won't have to cut me open. If I am cut open, it takes 4-6 weeks to recover. I am praying for my baby that he/she will be strong and healthy. I pray the recovery will be easy, and my boys at home will be well taken care of.
My husband and Shane are leaving in 30 minuets to head to Atlanta to pick up his littlest sister Savannah 13 and littlest brother Jesse 14 at the airport. They will be watching the boys while we are at the hospital! Hope they all do okay :) They were already coming so I scheduled the surgery while they were here so I can have help. Fun trip for them huh!
I really look forward to getting all this over with. I sometimes think, "I am gonna eat everything I haven't been able to eat!!" but then I know, my stomach has shrunk and I won't be able to eat as much as I want to. Which is a good thing!! I want to gain a healthy amount of weight. Not too much, and not lose any more.
Please keep me and my baby in your prayers, and I thank you all who have been praying. This is the scariest thing I have every gone through. If I wasn't pregnant I wouldn't worry as much. I am thankful that God is my strength and my protector! When Davey can't be with me, God is. He is in control of the doctors hands, and oh what a comfort to know that. I don't know how people go through life with out Him. He is my comforter. I am so glad I don't have to just hope the doctors will do well. But I KNOW God is the one in control.
Hear hear to next post being with out a gallbladder.

Ps 126:5

Love, The Curvy Housewife
