My aching tooth!

So a couple of weeks ago I got a tooth ache that was so bad that I would have rather had a baby! Of course I couldn't take any pain medicine other than Tylenol and I didn't even want to take that. Finally I went to sleep that night got up the next morning called my dentist and he told me to come right on. I got there and he could tell by looking at my swollen face that I had an absessed tooth!!! what? He drilled into my tooth so that it could drain and put medication down in there to kill the infection and then called Dr. Moss (my OB) and asked her what antibiotic she would ok to get rid of the infection, she told him Keflex and she told him NO pain medication! So if you know me I have never been one to take medicine and now I REALLY don't want to take anything with the pregnancy and all. With some releif I went back to work and got on the internet to read about toothaches and Keflex (the name of the med). The internet said it was fine for pregnant people to take. With still some apprehension I went on to the drug store after work to pick up my meds and before I left the pharmacy I had to talk to the pharmicist just to double or should I say triple check with the third professional, of course she said it was completly safe, so I started taking the medicine as soon as I got home. The next couple of days it finally quit hurting. I went back to the denist two days later and Dr. Clark decided to tempary fill the tooth and wait until after the baby gets here to finish the root canal. Ok great...the tooth feels just fine! That brings us to this past Monday night I came home from work, we had dinner and oh my gosh I thought I was going to die the pain started again!!!! I sleep NONE that night got up called my dentist and he told me to get to his office ASAP!! I got there he drilled it again and told me he couldn't do anything else for me except give me more antibiotics. I said NO I am not taking no more medicine just pull the tooth and lets be done with this. He said he didn't need to pull it because there is probably more infection in there and it could spread! The only thing he could do was send me to an endodontist in Murfreesboro. He called this tooth specialist and told her what was going on and she said to be at her office at two o'clock that day. I get there the tech was going to take on x-ray. You know me I have already googled endodontist and root canals prior so I knew they would have to take x-rays but it said that I needed to be covered with two lead shields. So the girl started her process and I didn't say anything too quickly I just wanted to see what she would do. WHEWHOOOOO the girl was great she knew right away I was pregnant, (don't know what gave that away) she figured out how many weeks I was by my chart and the girl went and got two lead shields!!! Oh yeah...I'm feeling much better all ready, these people might really know what the are doing! The little x-ray picture pops up in front of me and the tech say, "WOW"! I'm looking at her like WHAT???? She said, "You have a lot of infection in that sucker, I don't see how it hasn't already fell out!" So the Dr. comes in, ozing with kindness and knowledge. She looked at the x-ray and says, "UMMMMMM........we have got to do something about this thing today!" I'm thinking yes the first good thing I've heard all day, I already LOVE this woman! She proceeds to tell me that she is going to have to work me in but we are going to get this tooth cleaned out today! She finally gets started after telling me everything that she was going to do was completely safe for the baby. I tried to keep my eyes closed most of the time but I did see this little roto rutter looking thing that she was using. She finally finished and said that she cleaned the tooth out all the way down through the canal and put quite a bit of chemical in there to kill the infection. She gave me her cell phone number and said to call her that night if I was in too much pain, she would call me in some stronger Tylenol. I'm thinking ok I don't think the pain can get much worse, boy was I mistaken....after the local numbness had wore off...holy you know what!!!! Kris and I had to stop to pick up Kaylee at my Mom's house and I went in a laid down on the bed. The greatest mom ever, MY MOM, fixed us dinner that included mashed potatoes, mac & cheese and homemade gravy and biscuit. I finally had to break down and take Tylenol every four hours it barley killed the pain but any relief was great! My wonderful Mom gave my child a bath and we came home. I went to bed and sleep pretty good. The last coulple of days it has slowly stopped hurting although I am NO where near saying it dosen't hurt. I have not had any Tylenol today so that is a good thing. I go back to the Endodontist Wednesday to see if all the infection is gone, if so she will finish the root canal!!!!!

Sorry this post ended up being a long one but I had to share my pain with you! Thanks for listening and pray that this infection goes away before Wednesday and that I'm back to normal.....whatever that is!!!

Oh yeah I think we have our babies name narrowed down to just a few so maybe within the next week we reveal her name!!!!!

Between last weekend and this weekend we have got a lot accomplished. First of all last Friday I said I was going to get three things done. First I wanted to get the babies room cleaned out. Her room has pretty much been a storage/guest room for eight years so we had A LOT of junk in there. Second I wanted to get her furniture out of the attic and get it put together. Third I wanted to get this baby girl named!!! I am happy to report that I got two out of three of those things done. I'll let you guess which one I didn't get done or maybe these pictures will help!

This weekend I wanted to get my baby registries done. I am also happy to report that I did get that done. We are registered at Wal-mart and Target. Tomorrow my crib bedding is supposed to be in, I can't wait to see it I hope it is as pretty as it looks on the Internet. After I get it I can get the paint matched and Kris can start painting. I can't believe I am going into week time flies. And yes Jennifer I know.......we need to see more belly pictures...working on that I promise! My "to do" list this week includes focusing really hard on baby names. Thanks to those of you who gave us suggestions.

Kaylee got her 3rd six weeks report card and yes again she made straight S's and all +'s on everything that was evaluated. Her teacher even wrote on the back "GREAT JOB KAYLEE!" She is just doing so good in school and still loves every minute of it, I hope it continues.

Well here she is; is that not the most awesome profile?

So when I got up this morning I was filled with so many emotions. Of course I was excited and nervous all at the same time. I thought I knew what the ultrasound tech was going to say the sex was but it is just so nerve racking making sure that the baby is healthy, has all body parts and all the other things that we worry about. We all, except for Kaylee and my Mom, just knew it was going to be a little boy. Even I believed it so much that I already had a boy named picked out, bedding, travel system and all the other major things babies need. I think the biggest reason I thought it was a boy was everything has been so different than it was with Kaylee but I guess that just proves all pregnancies are different. And if you will remember Dr. Moss even said the heart beat sounds boyish last month. Her heartbeat was still only 150 bpm. So that myth is now broken. We also did the ring test on a string holding it over the stomach, it swung back and forth, so that meant a boy. The only thing that pointed to a girl was the Chinese birth chart. So anyway, we are in the ultrasound room and of course it takes awhile to look at and measure everything and then finally she says, "Well it is a GIRL." Kris and I looked at each other like WHAT, REALLY? Kaylee is going "YES!!!!" with her arms streched up in the air and then saying, "I told ya'll, I was right....Whewhoooo!" Kris says, "Are you sure that isn't a boy?" The tech says, "Honey you can wish whatever you want the next 20 weeks, but I'm telling you this IS a girl!" Of course we are very happy either way we are just so thankful she is healthy and has a healthy little heart. She was also very active so much that the tech was getting flustered trying to measure and check all the things that she needed to. In the video you can see her flipping and rolling around and then she got the hic ups it was so cute. I don't think Kaylee has stopped smiling yet, I'm so thankful that she was able to be in there with us because her little face was priceless. When I got back to work the girls I work with had decorated my area in pink. How sweet was that?
Thank you to everyone who voted looks like most of you thought it was a little boy too. You girl voters knew more than we did. Thanks again and stayed tuned for more updates and pictures.

Drum roll please......

Baby Adams' is a little

I can't believe it is already 2008! Where does the time go? So I have started thinking about resolutions and the first thing that comes to mind is losing weight, which is always one of mine.....this year guess what that is NOT my resolution!!!!! Whewhoooooo!!! This year of course I'm just hoping for a healthy baby, not too hard of labor, for Kaylee to continue to be healthy and happy and to be blessed with our loving families and friends. So to each of you I hope you have the greatest year ever and thank you for being interested in our family, we love you all!

We are now 20 weeks pregnant, that means we are half way there! This Friday(1-4) is the big day, so check in to find out if Kaylee is going to have a brother or a sister. If you have not voted, please do so!! We have had 11 votes and would love to know who you are and what you think. Thanks again to each of you that are so supportive!
