Good morning, friends. I skipped a week last week, because Monday was when I had my doctor's appointment. It basically went like this...
Monday, I was told "Well, you're having a miscarriage." I was upset, but based on everything I'd been told, I was expecting it. So, I picked myself up, and got my hair done and did all of the stuff that I wasn't allowed to do during my pregnancy.
Tuesday afternoon, I got a call that basically said: "Did we say you're having a miscarriage? Whoops. No, you're not. Your levels went up, but we still want you to get a D&C because the pregnancy looks abnormal."
Without me getting a word in edgewise, they scheduled the D&C for this Wednesday. I felt more and more uneasy as last week went on, and finally called them on Friday to tell them I would NOT be getting the D&C. I'd done so much research that gave me HOPE for this pregnancy, that I couldn't just end it.
After much arguing, the doctor reluctantly agreed that I am NOT in need of a D&C. Sometime this week, I am going in for a follow up blood draw and ultrasound, and we will go from there. If I am to miscarry, I will miscarry. If I need a D&C, I will have a D&C. But this will all be done on MY terms. If God grants me this miracle, then I will refrain from saying things like "In your FACE, Doctor"....at least until I am out of the doctor's office ;)
Either way, friends...that was the obligatory pregnancy update. Please continue to pray!
Let's get on with it, shall we?
On today's to-do list: Housework, library, going to work...gotta love being an adult.
Currently reading: Not much of anything, other than massive lists of medical statistics to bring to my next doctor's appointment.
On the TV today: I doubt that I will have time today to watch anything. Oh, well.
The weather outside is: Gorgeous. I have to find time to squeeze in some outside time to enjoy this day, as tomorrow it's supposed to pour the rain.
On the menu this week: Admittedly, my meal planning has suffered horribly the last few weeks. Between doctor's appointments and just not feeling well...ugh. Hoping to get back on my game this week!
Monday: Drunken Noodles
Tuesday: Chicken, CousCous and Steamed Veggies

If I have a few minutes to myself, I will: Take a nap. I'm so tired lately, it's not even funny.
New Recipe I'm looking to try: Uhm, let me get back on my Meal Planning game first, then we'll talk about new recipes ;)
In the garden: My mint is going crazy (inside), the basil is doing very well (also inside) and we have STRAWBERRIES! (you guessed it, inside)
Favorite photo from the camera:
We got Ella canopy for over her bed. She's always wanted one. Dave was curious so he went to check it out the other night.
Homemaking Tip: Don't be like me, and stay on top of your meal-planning game ;)
