I had some spotting yesterday and the day before. Very little, but it was there. I'm kinda scared because I'm not feeling sick at all like I did with Nate and Sam, but on the other hand, I'm pretty calm about things. I just don't know what to think. I've got an OB appt. on the 9th, so we'll see what he says. Probably some blood work and schedule an u/s.
Today is Nate's B-day. I made him a strawberry cake (his choice) and spaghetti. The two dualing smells in the house are not good together. BLAH. I'm sure they'll taste nice for dinner and dessert though. Me tiiiiiiiired!
Can't believe Nate turned 5!!! Happy birthday

Thanks for the birthday wishes Rachael!
As for Nate's birthday, it went over well. We had just a little nuclear family celebration and had a lot of fun. The cake turned out well despite my baking fiasco of accidentally cooking twice as much batter as needed. I just cut off the "muffin tops" and threw some frosting on it. Good stuff. Nate loved his pirate ships and has been playing with them for some time now.
We had a baby sitter over today. The boys love her. I went out to look at houses and got completely frustrated while Ron stayed home and worked on the last thing he needs to complete for his teaching credential. Ug! I found a wonderful house today and the price seemed right. Then our RE agent, D, called the selling agent and I guess it's a bank owned home and the bank sent out their appraiser and decided that it's worth $50k more than it's listed for and so they want to raise the price that much. BLAH! That put it out of our price range. Sooooo, the hunt continues. *SIGH*
The pregnancy. No more spotting for a while now. I contacted our hypnobabies doula and she said that she'd love to do my birth, but is a bit too committed to other things at the moment. Ug! I have to look for someone else. I just wanted her again! Boohoo! I'll see the doctor on Monday. We'll see if this LO is a sticky or not from the bloodwork and an u/s. I'm sure that the u/s won't be for a few weeks though. Stick bean, stick!!!
6 weeks today. I feel tired. Really tired. And I felt a bit sick this morning. A touch of morning sickness. 1st Dr's appt. for this LO tomorrow at 10 a.m.
Sam slept through the night last night. 7:15 p.m. to 5:05 a.m. He is ten months old today. Yay Sam!
I should go get my eyebrows waxed. I should get other things waxed too since I'm going to the OBGYN tomorrow, but I just don't feel like it. I'll just shave and pay the consequences later....when I'm itching like I've got a flock of crotch crickets down there.
Ok seriously, God is not a man. God does not have some dangly old penis with saggy, gray haired old man balls. That is just disgusting! So, why do people insist on calling God "He and Him"? It's ANNOYING and OBNOXIOUS! There, I said it. It annoys me. Probably more because people don't realize how offensive it is to some of us non-mainstream folks to have God ALWAYS portrayed as male. I know people are just used to one way of doing something and so that's what they do and it's not always about being vicious and trying to offend, but I can't help wishing that people would stop and give some thought to things they say.
Seriously though, alternate between female and male pronouns. That is proper and more enlightened. Or, just be gender neutral....well, unless your God is different than mine and really does have a set of balls like the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Then I suppose the "He" is justified. LOL!
I've done nothing but relax today. It feels good. But, I can't help finding myself feeling guilty about taking a day off. We have a baby sitter hanging out with us today, so I've been lounging around reading and playing on the internet. It's so gosh darn weird to have a gob of time to myself. Sooooooo weird!
Oh goodness, I totally forgot to journal about my u/s. It was all good, but I need to write things down.
6w 5d and I'm feeling mighty green. Ug. I think I'm going to have to fill my prescription for Zofran. I've been eating microwave popcorn like a freak since it seems to be one of the only thing that keeps the barfies at bay.
DH and I went to Toys R Us today and bought some games to play with Nate. He also insisted that we buy something pink. I thought it was funny, so I indulged him. We bought the cutest little bathing suit ever. It is white with little pink watermelons all over it. I told him, "Gosh babe, our 3rd son is going to look awfully funny in that swim suit!"
Ok, I have to back up and post about my u/s appt.
I had an appt. with Dr. M on the 9th of June. I told him that I had been spotting and I was worried about the baby and can I have an u/s? He said, "Absolutely" and called downstairs and got me a same day appt. I had to wait around for 4 hours, but I was thankful to be seen right away. I was a nervous wreck by the time the appt. rolled around and then OMG! The u/s lady was so mean! She kept the straightest poker face ever throughout the whole thing and then she said, "Well, I'm going to have the radiologist call your OB and ask whether he wants to talk to you in the office right now or if he'll just call you." I started to cry. That's what they say when it's bad news. She then turned the screen to me and said, "Look, there is the little heartbeat." I was sobbing and said, "Oh, I thought it was bad news..." Anyways, she then said everything looks fine and sent me upstairs to the OB. He said, "Good, good, good. I'll see you in 5 weeks."
I was so emotional after that. What a rollercoaster! It was traumatizing for sure. Anyways, here he/she is. The tiniest thing I've ever seen. I'm sure you can make out the little sac, up at the top left hand corner of the sac is the baby.
Oh Bobbie that is wonderful news!
It's such a relief to know your girly swimsuit wearing boy is safe and secure in there
