What.A.Day. Actually, What.A.Weekend. Hoping it slows down some for me (but it's not looking like that will happen!)
I spent the bulk of Saturday night, crying my eyes out in the emergency room. I started bleeding out of nowhere Saturday evening, and when you're pregnant and have a history of prior losses, that can be really scary.
The good news is that the baby and I appear to be fine. My bloodwork came back perfect and the hcg numbers were great. I have an appointment on Wednesday with the doctor to do another blood draw. If my levels are rising, then we're good to go. If they're not, then I don't even know...I don't even want to think about that.
I haven't had any more bleeding and I've tried my best to take it easy this weekend, but now I'm ready to hit this week running...er, lightly jogging.
Right now, I am: Trying to type up this post, and figure out all that I have to do, and figure out a sloooowwwww way to do it. (Not so easy since I'll be heading to work in about four hours. )
Thinking: That I'm nervous about this blood draw on Wednesday. I'm happy I'll have a definite answer as to what's going on with this pregnancy, but I'm scared out of my mind, too. I don't know if I can handle another loss.
On my T.V.: Not sure I'll have time to watch ANYTHING this week, but I'll try to slow down and watch a movie of some kind with Ella.
On the Menu for this week: It's going to be a fly-by-the-seat of your pants kind of week. I did so well until Saturday, when everything got thrown into a tailspin. When I came home Saturday night, Gabe had gotten pizza and everything was under control at the homestead, and then yesterday, I barely left the bed, so Gabe fixed dinner again. I hate that this even happened, but I'm glad he was off this weekend. He was truly my rock.
On my to-do list today:
*Return Library Books
*Clean the bathrooms
*Take some clothes to the thrift store to give away
*About a million other things I haven't even thought of yet
*Oh, and work.
Looking forward to: Answers. There's been talk of doing an ultrasound, and I just KNOW that I'll breathe easier once I see him/her on the screen and hear a heartbeat.
Looking around the house: I need to get all of my plants ready for the transition OUTSIDE which will hopefully happen sooner than later.
From the camera:
On my prayer list: The usuals, my parents and kid brother, this baby, a few little personal requests, a church friend who is due any.day.now and had contractions yesterday (but I haven't heard an update), another friend who welcomed her second rainbow girl last week.
