FINALLY able to log on!

I have not been able to log on for the longest time! UGH! I've been reading all the posts, but could not reply! I wanted to tell you all about a little excitement I had 2 weeks ago:

I was sitting at the computer (shocker!) when all the sudden I got a pain in the right of my neck and then I felt numbness come up over the side of my face. It scared me to DEATH! I had a doc appointment that day anyway so I held off and just told my OB when I got there. she did my qucik check up (gained 2 pounds, BP 106/62, Finn's HR 150s, measuring 35 weeks) and sent me right over to the ER to check for a stroke Sad Just hearing those words made me sick to my stomach. They scheduled me for an MRI and took me back almost immediately. They usually give some light sedation for an MRI b/c it is scary and you feel trapped but they couldn't really give me anything b/c of Finn. It was the scariest thing I have ever experienced in my life. I was crying and freaking out the entire time I was in there. Luckily, it came back clear....no stroke! The sinuses on that side of y head were severly imflammed and pressing on a nerve to cause the numbness. WHEW! It was just so, so scary not knowing what was going on and, as a nurse, I was of course letting my mind wander to the absolute worst possibility! So, that's my excitement....

Now, I'm off to catch up on posts! Can't believe we are getting so close, gals!

Oh my goodness that is so scary! I always thought it would be good to be a nurse because you know what signs to worry about and what's no big deal, but I guess you know just how terrible something can be which is almost worse! I'm so happy that nothing was seriously wrong and I'm glad that everything is ok. I was wondering what you were up to, but having 5 kids and working I can imagine your fairly busy most of the time.
