It's Friday!

So, I looked at today's Friday Fill-Ins and they just looked a little too taxing for my brain to come up with something clever today...so I'm skippin 'em this week.

I'll just give you a little update on stuff instead. "Mmmm...that sounds good, I'll have that." (can anyone tell me what movie this is from?? You won't win anything, I'll just think you're really cool)

Anyway, this week was actually kind of stressful. I ended up in the ER on Tuesday because I was bleeding from a place you're not supposed to bleed from when you're pregnant. Needless to say, it freaked me out, and made me cry...in front of my co-workers...awesome. But my girlfriend/co-worker took me to the ER that was the closest to where we work, while I called my hubby and my mommy. Yes, I'm 29 years old, and I still call my mommy.

I had to pee in a cup, give some blood, and then they did an ultrasound. They didn't put me in a position where I could look at the screen...I had kind of mixed feelings about that. I wanted to see, but at the same time wasn't sure if I wanted to see, in case something was wrong. But thankfully, there was nothing wrong during the ultrasound. The baby had a heartbeat and everything, and they told me I had a 'subchorionic hemorrhage', which they kept trying to tell me happens all the time and everything would probably be fine. So, they let me go home...and the bleeding stopped later that night.

The next morning (Wednesday), I woke up with cramping, like what I usually feel before my period. So, again I somewhat freaked out...because when I had the bleeding, I had no cramping...but now I had cramping and no bleeding. I called the doctor's office, and they had me come in...they did another ultrasound, baby is still okay. Whew. The doctor just told me to take it easy for a couple days.

I worked from home yesterday, and felt pretty good..just somewhat tired I think from stressing myself out. And today, I had to go in for another blood draw so they can compare my bhCG levels from Tuesday to today. If those numbers continue to go up, then I'm doing good...if they go down, not so good.

I don't think I would be so paranoid about all of this if I hadn't lost a baby once before, and had all these same symptoms. That experience was horrible...all of the medical staff I dealt with were completely emotionally detached from the situation. My doctor even had the nerve to tell me it wasn't the end of the world. I know it's not the freakin' end of the world you moron, but it's still sad, and I have a right to be sad dammit! They kept referring to my baby as a 'non-viable' pregnancy. I realize it's the medical term or whatever, but have some heart people. Phew...guess I'm still harboring some bitterness about that. Sorry for the rant.

Anyway, I'm feeling like things will be fine...I'll just feel better once I get my blood results back and those numbers have gone up. I'll let you know.

But on to other things, since that was kind of stressful and sad stuff.

My oldest daughter, SAM, and I, got our hair cut yesterday. She cut off about 7 inches of hair...I only cut off about 3, because I had made my drastic cut from long to short about 2 months ago. She looks really cute...really grown up...which again, makes me sad. OK, sorry, this post is just going to be sad...that's just the way it is apparently. She's going into 7th grade in the fall, and can I just tell you that it freaks the livin' crap out of me?? Also, my Cita is going into 2nd grade, and Monkey starts Kindergarten. Only one "baby" left, until this baby is born...and even little Baby Pants is growing up. At 16 months she's very verbal, and she can sign like a mo'fo' (is that appropriate for a mother to say? whatever.) She's seriously signing like 30+ words...it's awesome. I'll have to take a video one day and put it on my blog...that is once I figure out how to get video from my camera onto my computer. This has been a task that has been daunting me for, oh, a year or so now. I'll get it figured out some day...once all the kids have gone off to college.

Alright, this post is getting very verbose, so I'm going to end here and let all you lovely people enjoy your Friday. And please, click on some of the links of the Blogs I Read...they are probably of a happier tone than mine was today. :) Have a great weekend!

So glad everything is okay. I'm sorry to hear about your previous miscarriage--And you have EVERY REASON to rant about the way the hospital staff treated you, and about being cautious this time around. Take it easy this weekend! And thank you so much for the donation to my TNT fundrasising!!! After you have the baby come to SD for a vaca and I'll treat you! :-)

Please keep us updated on the pregnancy situation. You have every right to be cautious. Have a good weekend...oh...what movie is that from. I think it is a guy saying it but I just cannot put my finger on it. I am curious if I am close.

Ding Ding Ding!! Danielle Wins!! It is indeed "Dumb and Dumber" - Jim Carrey's character asks "What's the soup du jour?", and the Waitress says "It's the soup o' the day." (in a twangy accent) And Jim Carrey says "Mmmm...that sounds good, I'll have that." (not even knowing what the soup actually was...isn't that funny? OK, I thought it was funny.
