8 WEEKS 3 DAYS
Thank goodness it's Saturday. We had a busy morning. Got up aroun 7AM since I go to bed so early these days, LOL, tinkered around the house, went to the farmers market, picked up some lunch and went to a park to eat it. Then went over for more dog-sitting duties at my brother's house and hung out there for a bit. Now we're back home, it's about 1PM. I am so tired I can barely keep my eyes open. In fact, I think I'll see if Josh will take a nap and I'll take one with him. Oy.
I've got a funny story to put in about the park but I'm so exhausted I might have to tell it later. Snore..........
8 WEEKS 4 DAYS
We went to church this morning and Josh insisted upon going to "big church" with me instead of his normal Sunday School for 4 year old people. At the beginning it was just as I imagined it would be but one little "talk" in the bathroom about halfway through and he did much better and by the last 15 minutes of it he was doing great. And thank goodness because when we got up to go to the bathroom some people came and took our aisle seats during that 5 minutes. Who comes so late into service? Anyways, I digress.
I am cooking a pot of roasted beets for my lunch today. Is that odd? It feels odd but it's just like any other vegetable so maybe it's fine. Plus they are chock full of folic acid and are supposed to be very healthy.
Suddenly the big sonogram day is upon us tomorrow after so much waiting!!! It feels almost surreal. In 26 hours from this minute I'll be laying down on the sono table. Normally I'm not so anxious but I just want to make sure everything is OK in there and then I'll calm down a tad.
Here's the funny story from yesterday at the park. Josh and I had stopped to get some lunch and took it to the park to eat as a picnic. As soon as I turned off the car he said he had to pee and it couldn't wait. We weren't near home and this park is in the middle of a residential area so not like he could just go behind a tree. I looked around the car and found a Backyardigans tumbler with a lid on it................................you know where this is going, don't you? So he had no problem peeing in the cup, only who knew the bladder of a 4 year old could hold 12 ounces? I really really thought the cup was going to runneth over, literally. But at the last moment he finally ran out of tinkle and I was able to screw on the lid without getting pee on myself or in my car. Needless to say, Backyardigans cup is no longer with us.
I went for my 1st sono today and the baby is not alive. I should be 8 weeks 5 days and it is measuring 6 weeks 6 days with no heartbeat. I will go back on Wednesday for a 2nd sono just to make sure and then on Thursday will go to the hospital for a D&C if I have not miscarried naturally by then.
