100 days to go!!!

WOW! Only 100 days until Lumpetta is due! It just seems so long and short at the same time.

She is doing really well. Yesterday is the first day that I really felt her move a lot. She is still squirming around today. I usually got a kick or 2 a day, but nothing consistent until yesterday. I hope it lasts.

I am feeling pretty good. Im uncomfortable, but its ok. I am just suddenly absolutely EXHAUSTED! I would love to walk the Runnin' of the Green 7k this weekend, but Im not sure if I can make it! I have a couple days left to decide if I want to try or not. Its only 4 miles and R will walk with me if I want. Maybe slow walking is ok? Im not sure yet. Maybe Ill wait one more week.

We finally hired our doula, S, this week. We have been meaning to hire her for a while, but we are both procrastinators. I am excited now. She is awesome! She is a massage therapist also, so hopefully that will help with the pain of labor.

Thats all for now. I have to pee....

First big scare, but everything is ok.

long day.....dont worry. got to spend the day at dr.'s office and hospital plus a fun ambulance ride.

im home now. i had cramping, backache, possible pPROM...stupid me went to work. called dr. said to get into the office asap. got there...they tried to do a ffn test and somehow i started bleeding a lot. they called the ambulance and sent me to L&D after getting a steroid shot. at L&D i stopped bleeding. baby doing great. having some contractions, but not many. still in pain though. have appt tomorrow at dr office again to get 2nd steroid shot. not sure what is going on. grr. ill find out about bedrest tomorrow also.

good news is my cervix is now out of the possible danger range and still closed, so the ctx are not dilating me.

i just dont know what is going was a lot of blood and some really big clots. i know they wouldnt have discharged me if there was a serious problem but im a bit traumatized.

sorry for the rambling post, just processing stuff still. ill update when i know what is next.

IT'S A.........


It's official! We went to find out last night! She is an active little one! It was great. I almost feel guilty that things are so normal. YAY!

So, I wrote a lot of posts and kept them unposted until I was sure Lumpy was going to make it. Then I was so sick and exhausted I didnt post again for a long time! Oops! Sorry!

Everything is ok. Lumpy is doing great! We should find out the sex in the next few weeks. Interesting things that have recently happened:

I tried and tried to avoid maternity pants....for Christmas my mother-in-law bought me a pair for work. I really didnt think Id like them, but they have to be the most comfortable pants ever! I am off to shop for more on Tuesday.

I have only gained 5 lbs. but my waist is gone and Ive added 5-6 inches around my mid-section. Nice one Lumpy!

I can again eat SOME vegetables. Not a lot and not all the time, but its getting better.

Besides all of that we are doing great here. I am really enjoying winter break and do NOT want to go back to work on the 5th! Why can't I just lay around in pajamas ALL THE TIME!

I hope everyone had great holidays! Happy (almost) new year!

Lots of love,

Lumpy (yes, thats its name for now) is growing and doing great! We had our 2nd ultrasound today. Lumpy has a heartbeat of 186 bpm! YAY! This will hopefully last for the long haul. We were released from the RE today and have our first OB appt on Friday.

Bring it on!

Ok, so short post. Morning sickness is here. Well, not morning, I usually get about an hour or 2 after I wake up that Im ok then its all downhill. Night is really the worst though. Argh.

Love (& Hope) at first sight

Today we had our first ultrasound at the RE's office. It went great. I kind of freaked out at first because it looked like an empty sac, but then they zoomed in and I could see it really in there! The heartbeat was flickering away. R was able to see it better than I was, but it was beating at 123 bpm! YAY! We go back again to follow up with the RE on November 11. I just pray that this little lump keeps growing strong!
