Cervical Cerclage and Gestational Diabetes

Day 0: I went in to the hospital with both of the kiddos in tow… I had them stay up all night so they would be tired:) I got a room around 0815 and then was prepped… I didn't go in for the operation until about 1030. I was wheeled upstairs and straight in to the OR. I remember being put onto the OR table and my arms being put out like a cross onto lil jelly like pads for my wrists. It was now time to put my legs into the slings. I looked over and saw someone putting meds into my hand… And then… looking back at the lady who was struggling to get my left leg secure… That was it. LIGHTS OUT. The rest of the day was really a daze. I slept through the WHOLE day and Night. I remember seeing Gustavo…He helped me up to the bathroom and I got sick. I remember Mimi sleeping… And DJ leaving… But not much else…

If you DO NOT know what a cervical cerclage is… It is where they stitch up your cervix. It will help prevent pre-term labor.

Day 1: Not too much was going on. I moved rooms and had a little bit of pain.
Day 2: Same… None eventful
Day 3: I had to FAST… I was going to have a the Glucose Tolerance Test. I was woken at 0530… My blood was taken…. I drank the NASTY orange drink… And again my blood was taken. Again and Again! The doctor said if everything was good, I could leave… Well- That wasn't the case. My first results were high… And my second results were 12.5… I had to had insulin and begin having my blood drawn SEVERAL more times! I swear… If you were to look at my veins… You would feel SO Sorry for me! It looks like track marks! They were doing a sugar profile to ensure I was given the right dosage of insulin. That night, I gave myself my FIRST insulin shot and learned how to use the glucometer… (Maybe that is what it is called)
Day 4: I finally get to leave the HOSPITAL!!! YAY!

How do I feel about having Gestational Diabetes???
I am upset. It sucks. I have to poke my finger 6 times a day and take two insulin shots. I do not to eat any AWESOME ice cream… I have to CHART my pricks for my doctor… And honestly- I just feel crumby! One great thing… We got to see another U/S before I left the hospital and… Our shy baby… Looks like a GIRL! The doctor said he isn't for certain… But… It looks like we have a B/G set! I have to go back to the hospital tomorrow for an injection and then another appt on the following Saturday.

More to follow...

Ombre the WRONG way!

Dear Desert Girl… 
For your viewing and laughing pleasure!
I have given examples of "Good Ombre and BAD OMBRE!"

I have been going to the same lady to do my hair for a while now… What do you do when you get your hair all messed up? I asked… Do you know how to OMBRE… The answer was yes… But I saw once shed started that… OH SHIT! I am in TROUBLE!
I remember telling her… "I do not want LINES in my head!"
This is what I wanted!
Just a couple examples… I also told her… I want a high-light to frame my face… I thought it was going to look great and this way… I wouldn't have to maintain a dye job when it grows out!




Just looking STUPID...


This is the face that I had to make to keep myself from crying! My hair is F*cking YELLOW

 This was the next day… I hid my face because… That is how bad it was
 I saw that they said to FIX it… To put an ash blond or light ash brown… So- That is what I told her to do.
 It is looking ok wet… Right? 
 Ok… This isn't that bad! 
 I left feeling a little better...
 Little did I know… The curls were a DECOY!
 This is the next day… You cannot tell… But me hair looked greenish or grayish
Not SOOOOO bad… Right?

WRONG!
 This is what it looks like… Like HELL
I was going to get it fixed when I was in America… But I was just too busy! I didn't even do my hair when I was home!

HELP ME!!!

Brazilian student auctions virginity-Sad

Most of my night... I am watching/listening to the News.

Sometimes I hear things that TRULY sadden me... Like the story below.



Can you imagine?  This is a special moment for any woman... A moment that she will remember for the rest of her life.
At times a lot of us forget how lucky we really are.  I couldn't imagine being in her situation.

I am not sure what this lady's plight was, however, she is now FAMOUS and her virginity went for 780,000!!!

To know... or not to know?

One delightful Blogger in Denmark has "Blogger get togethers"... I also Googled it and it looks so fun!!! I thought WOW!!! How fun would that be to do in Kuwait?!...

Then I started thinking... "Do I really want to know who is behind the blog?"
Most of the bloggers in Kuwait do not show themselves, they may not show themselves for a get together function either... :(

There are a few that I would really love to meet because I think that they are the COOLEST people on Earth!

What if all this time... I knew them!!!?

That already happened! Expierence: No BUENO

One day I was reading a blog that I liked when SOMETHING stood out to me! I shook my head in sadness as I realized... I knew who the writer was. In REAL LIFE... I didn't like her. At all. She was RUDE and Negative... She had a smart mouth... And most of ALL... she was LAZY! She wouldn't even get out of her chair to help me... She rolled her chair to the printer that was only 2 feet away! Blahhhhhhh. Office job, made easier!!!

The other run in I had with her was when I went on a company sponsored Visa Run and they had me staying at a HOOKER infested Hotel! I left... Flew back to Kuwait... (Visa wasn't at the AP yet) so I Booked a ticket the Bahrain... Spent the night at the Movenpick and then returned on my regularly scheduled day. When Mi Suave explained WHY... She said, "It wasn't supposed to be a vacation"... Derrr. But I refused to be propositioned on the way to my room by IDIOT contractors who thought that I may have been a prostitute! On top of that you could hear their "FUN" in my room... In the hallway, ETC!
*Amber, No Likey!!!*

Mimi's Meltdown (Thanks Tina for the Video!!!)

Mimi's "Justin Beiber" Breakdown!!!




I wish that I would have been faster to get my phone... (I have to learn how to upload because it isn't working!!!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AVapAsfxOQ

Today Mimi and I went to Lulu's to get some groceries... On the way there we started talking about Selena Gomez. She asked me does she work at Disney World... and also of she is a real person... I told her that she may not stay at Disney World because she has other things to do.
I then mentioned that Justin Beiber is her boyfriend... WHATTTT... ????


My 6 year old just went crazy on me, crying and all... She was asking me,
"Why did she make Justin fall in love with her" 
"How could she do this to me?"
She was telling me that it is not fair, that she is making a plan for this, when she grows up she is going to be prettier then Selena Gomez... ETC. ETC. ETC...

EXHALE... Why? Why me? I have no idea why my daughter is already a HANDFUL! I had to call her Daddy and have him talk to her about this... She was so upset.

Once I got her all cleaned up, we went into the store... She saw the pretzel stand and said, "Maybe a pretzel will make me happy again." SMH...

Instead, after she was such a GREAT help in the store, she got a "Fancy Doughnut"
