Ticker's Good

It's funny how I missed blogging so much when I was unable to, and now that the ISP is back in order, I'm having trouble with what to say. I mean, there's plenty, I suppose, but is any of it really interesting to anyone but me? I can't say.

Fetal Echo went well today. CC's ticker is in fine working order, far as we can tell at the moment. She was a good girl and didn't move too much while the doc tried to get his pictures. He was pushing SUPER hard on my belly in the general vacinity of my Lovenox injections. Man, ouch. So, now we go in next week for a regular appointment and then in a couple weeks we start fetal monitoring. These last few weeks have gone fast.

Last week I came down with some nasty crud that landed me in the hospital for a day. I was having trouble catching my breath because I was caughing so hard. OB was concerned about my O2 levels, so they kept me while they watched to make sure I was recovering quick enough. I have never had a cold like that. Initially they thought it was strep, but turns out it was just a nasty cold. I'm just today feeling a bit better. Of course, I passed it to Gracie, but she didn't seem to get hit as hard as I did. Thank God for small favors.

Mom & dad are packing their house as I write. They'll drive here with some stuff we're keeping for them and then fly to Malaysia in a couple of weeks. It's going to be sad when they're gone. It's still a plane ride away, and I know we'll still see them as much as we do now, but phone calls won't be as easy and hopping a plane at a moment's notice won't happen. Mom will be back in September to help with Carlie, but we won't see dad until Spring. Sniff, sniff.

Life's really pretty boring at the moment. I have some thoughts about having our third girl, but I don't really know how to put them into words. I'm happy and excited, but I certainly would have been happy with a boy as well. I need to come up with a post to get all that stuff down.

    That cold sounds really scary. I'm glad to hear that you and Gracie are doing better.

    I'd love to hear your thoughts on your third girl, when you feel like posting them.
