Good morning ladies~ Tough night last night, woke up with my heart pounding and then basically talked myself into freaking out, thinking I was having some sort of trouble. Mostly it was just that: pounding heart, sweaty palms, a bit of shakiness. It passed in about thirty minutes, but I just kept imagining going into premature labor and having an extreme preemie baby here in San Diego, away from DP and my family, being stuck here for months, and it got me all shook up. I'm a bit better now, but still kinda jumpy, but the 'trouble' was a few hours ago, and I figure if anything bad were to come of it (food poisoning, heart attack, preterm labor, any of the other nightmares I imagined) it would already have started. Still, I wish my sweetie were here to hug me and calm me down! Fortunately I have a day full of meetings to distract myself with.
Jesse~ I had the screening you're talking about, and mine was very clearly negative, which I found incredibly reassuring. I have also heard that there's a risk of false positive on that and the sequential screening, the tests they do using your actual blood. My sister had a false pos on one of those when she was pregnant with my nephew. She had a miserable, panicked week but then it all resolved. I hope yours is clear and reassuring.
Pigirl~ Yikes! A shot in the butt a week? But still, if it keeps the baby safely baking, it's worth it.
Gumshoe~ Double yikes! What a time to get laid off. It seems like you have a few options, but you sure don't need this ignunce and stress. Big hugs xo
Went to La Jolla yesterday and looked at seals. They were so, so cute. I"m going to take it easier today.
