Shannon, I'm so sorry to hear about your awful day yesterday. I know how much you think of your godson, so this must be very difficult for you. I will keep you both in my thoughts today.
Ekblad, I'm very glad to hear that you are eating! That sound so much better than you were just a couple of weeks ago.
SadKitty, I hardly gained anything in the first trimester with my daughter, I think 2 pounds. This time, I'm 15 weeks and I've gained 3 or 5, depending on which scale the doc's office uses (LOL). Hopefully food will start to sound more interesting to you soon, and you'll be gaining quickly from here on out.
Any of you CA moms near Sacramento? I live here, and the state fair starts tomorrow. provided everything turns out well today or tomorrow, I'm going to the fair this weekend. It is super cheesy, but I love it. I've gone since I was a little kid, and I have good memories of it. Plus if you have kids, they have the most incredible petting zoo.
Okay, now for me. I had a lot of trouble sleeping last night, so I'm glad I took the day off and napped yesterday. I feel like there is a huge rock in my stomach this morning. I know that the doc's office doesn't even open until 8:30, and they might not have results until this afternoon, but it is fairly likely that we will find out today. I feel like my life hinges on this moment. Sorry to be so dramatic, but I honestly feel like I'm going to completely be destroyed if the results aren't good. And I'm so scared right now, I can't even tell you.
What sucks is that there isn't anything that anyone can do. Everyone keeps saying, "Don't worry, it will be okay." And I can't not worry. I don't want people to tell me not to worry, I want people to be here to hold my hand and listen and just hug me while I worry. Some of my friends are in that "not sure what to do" mode that people get into when you're having a crisis. It sucks because I realize that all that crap I read about in Dear Abby is absolutely true. Even if you don't know what to say, just call and say something. Say, "Are you okay?" or "Is there anything I can do?" I'm feeling a little disappointed that one of my friends who I have known for 16 years has not called me or emailed for 4 days. Even to reply to the email I sent out to everyone to say that the amnio went okay.
I love that you all are here. I love that you always have a hug for me (even if it is a cyber one). I love that you are so supportive and that I feel that I can tell you anything. I don't love that there are people IRL that I've known for half my life that can't even get their shit in gear to pick up the phone when i am hurting.
Okay, sorry to write an entire novel. I hope news is good for everyone all around today, and I will absolutely log in here and tell you as soon as I know anything. there is a chance we won't find out until tomorrow, so if I don't post again, don't assume the worst. Hugs to you all. Please know how much I appreciate each and every one of you!
