From the couch
I got these flowers from HEB the last time I was there. One of my pregnancy super powers allows me to smell everything, everywhere. So the nice smelling flowers help cover up the dog smell and the trash, those are the two that get me the most.
I got my blood work done this morning and I just spoke with the nurse. She said to keep doing what I'm doing because my hormone levels are perfect. That's a great sign for the little peanut. She had looked at my chart and told me that the size of the clot is impressive but it will most likely get re-absorbed. My doc will want to do a sonogram weekly until that happens to make sure the baby is growing at a normal rate and has a strong heartbeat. I'm also supposed to get a sonogram after any episodes of heavy bleeding, more for peace-of-mind than anything.
My next appointment is Wednesday morning. It does make things with work a bit tricky given that I work Monday through Wednesday and my doc isn't in the office Thursday or Friday. I scheduled it right around Cooper's nap time so in theory I'll just take him with me and he'll sleep the whole time. I may take Jonathan with me as back up entertainment and bottle feeder, it would be difficult to feed him and get a sonogram at the same time.
Luckily when I called to set up the appointment and told the person why I needed to come in 2 days from now, his schedule was wide open. Funny, considering it takes 3 month to get in for an annual. But I'm not complaining, I've paid my dues sitting in that waiting room for the last 10 years, it's my turn to get in and out of there quickly. I'm not holding my breath though.
I had a small amount of bleeding last night and this morning so I'll stay in bed through tomorrow and plan on going back to work Wednesday. They know what's going on and told me to just take care of myself. Though I'm sure their secretly freaking about what's going to happen with them.
I'm going back to drinking my bubbly water and watching TV.
