I woke up this morning to more spotting and lower back pain. I immediately called AJ to see if I would get arrested if I called off my jury duty. After he and my Dad convinced me I would not get arrested, I called in and texted my midwife. Yes... my midwife is an old family friend and nice I can text her. She asked me to come in. I think my Mom and Dad were worried sick. I was actually pretty calm. I was excited I may get to see the peanut today. The baby immediately started moving around and is out of my pelvis. The heartbeat still is 168. Many are predicting a girl. I am hoping deep down, but know my odds are against me. I will trust God knows what I need best. I will be ecstatic with either. We are going back tomorrow for my bloodwork and another sono to look at the placenta. I convinced AJ he has to go with me.
I am sorry I have not posted recently. It has been same old same old around here. I am looking forward to my doctor's appointment Thursday. I had a little scare on Saturday morning. I experienced some light spotting. Worried I sent a text to my midwife then decided to call the office. She gave me orders to take it easy. Easier said then done with boys and activities. But I managed to rest and not do a whole lot this weekend. Brady has strep throat and I pray I don't get it. I have jury duty this week. I was excited about it at first... now I dread it. I hate not being able to plan my week. Praying they won't want a police officer's wife!
The boys and I have escaped to our favorite get a way. It is cool and windy in South Western MI. It really feels like fall. Not a good day for swimming or rock hunting on the beach. Looks as if we will find a fall activity to keep us busy. Baby seems to be doing well. We just hit our 10 week mark. It seems as if it is going very slowly. I hope you all are getting to relax this Labor Day weekend. Thinking about all of those including my hubby who will be laboring this weekend.
AJ and I had a lunch date and went and played with strollers today. This is our top pick so far. I am so excited for all the fun things we are going to get to do! AJ asked me how I convinced him to do this again.... then we sniffed Baby Magic and we both remembered.
