Hi all. Things here are feeling good. No more spotting today. I went and had the Beta drawn this morning and they said the results should be back tomorrow. I
my birth center. Even the lab tech knows my name! Once I feel ready to start thinking about it, I am going to have a very hard time deciding where to birth. In my gut I really want to birth at home, but I feel so much allegience to the birth center staff. Unfortunately they do not attend home births...sigh.
Shannon: Thanks for the good vibes. It looks like they worked! The wedding is getting close. Are you excited? Or do you want the ceremony over with so you can skip to the honeymoon trip?
Lesley: I remember your posts on the One thread about spotting. I was actually using you as a little ray of hope to hang on to yesterday. Thanks for the inspiration, and I'm glad you haven't seen anymore spotting. Oh, and I can't believe you are craving seafood. When I was pg with Ellie, the one food I absolutely could not eat, see or smell was salmon. I had the worst aversion to it, and wasn't very excited about any seafood.
Jorie: I hear you ( and others) about how sweet toddlers are with nursing mamas' breasts. Dd is nursing pretty infrequently these days, but she still loves to touch my breasts. Yesterday she fell and got a boo boo. When I picked her up, she immediately put her hand down my shirt. I said, "What are you doing, sweetie?" and she answered, "Touching your nursies because it makes me feel better."
You can't beat that.
I am just a tad nauseous and a little crampy and tired. With my 1st pg I had no symptoms at all until about 6 weeks, and then I had mild symptoms throughout, so I am not too focused on my lack of symptoms.
I could use some opinions about this interaction. I can't decide how I feel about this. After I went to got my blood drawn this morning, I stopped by to see my clinic office manager at the school where we work (we are off for the summer, but she works until the end of this week). She is not someone I hang out with outside of work, but she is really my only true co-worker, so we spend a lot of time together. She was around all through my m/c, (which took several weeks to resolve). Anyway, I couldn't help myself today and I told her I am pg. She said, "I was just thinking about that this morning, and thinking that if you did get pg again, I hope you don't tell anyone!"
WTF! I know she felt awkward through the whole thing, but still. It especially bothered me because her sister died a month ago after a very long and drawn out illness, and I listened every day to her talk about how things were with her sister and how her family was holding up, etc. I hate feeling like I can't tell people I'm pregnant, because they don't want to have to hear about the outcome if it is not good. I am probably overreacting, but I was kind of hoping for a congratulations or something!
Whoa, Didn't mean to write a novel. I let you all know what the results are tomorrow.
