Baby On The Go!!

I can't believe that it's that time already!! Our little Peyton is officially on the go at 5 months and 2 weeks!

She's been getting around by scooting around backwards on her belly since about 3 months on. She would just inch and inch back. She would scoot on her back when throwing a fit by kicking her legs so hard she was so mad and we thought that was crazy enough! The pediatrician thought we were crazy when we told him till he made her mad by messing with her at her 2 month check up and saw her try to do it on the table and was like wow she is one strong baby and especially for being so tiny!!

Then at her 4 month check up she showed him how she was scooting around backwards on her belly!

So she's been getting up on all four's for about 2 weeks now. Every since my husband left to NTC for training. I just knew she was going to sadly wind up crawling before he got back.. but that's how this wonderful military life goes sometimes..

And yesterday she's up on all fours and she takes one plunge forward with one knee and BOOM right on her face! Poor little girl! But that didn't keep her from going at all! She got up and went again! And again!!!

So we officially have a crawler! She will be off in no time around everywhere when she gets her hand coordination down a bit more!

So as exciting of a day as it was yesterday with that it was also a very bad day. I wound up going to the emergency room from having tingling down my left arm from my fingers through my shoulder. I had an SVT attack on Saturday night and was able to get it under control but had tingling off and on Sunday.

From the moment I woke up yesterday it was non stop. Then turned into a pain from my elbow up through my left side of my neck. Chest pain, shortness of breath, about to pass out. So I went in and everything checked out fine on the xray, EKG and blood work that I wasn't having a heart attack and he said the steps I'm doing at home during my SVT attacks are the right ones and just come in if they last longer then 30 minutes or get worse.

They said they think I may have something called sheehans that is developed from loosing to much blood and they think I developed it possibly after I gave birth to my 3rd child and lost so much blood with her and almost had a blood transfusion and that would be what was the onset for all of these problems.

He said I may possibly need to switch heard meds since I was still borderline for high blood pressure and my heart rate was still high but not alarmingly high. But he's leaving that up to my Dr at my appointment on Thursday. If I do have to switch I will no longer be able to breastfeed sadly. Which everyone knows how much that means to me and what a big thing it is so I'm sad thinking about it.

So I got discharged and started feeling better and we made it out for an ice cream play date at chick fil a last night. It was nice to get out and get some adult communication even if I was a little out of it!
