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 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!
