I had my first bout of morning sickness yesterday. I was *almost* happy about it. How weird is that?? I am one of those people who HATES to be sick. I will try to talk myself out of throwing up if I can. I am also a “sympathy puker”. If anyone is getting sick & I can hear it, smell it or see it, I’m right there puking too. Nice topic huh? I think I’ll change it.
I have a follow up u/s scheduled for tomorrow at 5:30 to follow up on the bleed. Dr. K. wants to make sure is hasn’t gotten any bigger or if in fact it has resolved itself. I just want to see the nugget & make sure there’s still a heartbeat. I’m not really having any DBT’s; I just want to see it again.
Joe spent the day with Maggie on Sunday. They took a trip to The Fort Washington Expo center for a train show. Joe loves trains. He used to set up this huge, elaborate platform for Christmas. We haven’t had one in a couple years, but he did pick up a small Christmas set for around the tree this year. Maggie enjoyed it. He said she was very excited about all the choo-choos.
After the show, they stopped at his sister’s house. As they were getting ready to leave, Bet was asking if Maggie was in a big-girl bed yet. (We have Bet’s crib. She let us borrow it when Maggie was born, and we do have to give it back.) When Joe told her, “No, but we are looking into getting her a bed.” Bet replied, “Well, you hold on to the crib, you’re going to be needing it aren’t you??” Joe was like, whattaya mean? Bet said she was looking at me on Thanksgiving & she knows that I’m pregnant. She said she could just “tell”. Bet has 3 kids and has had 3 miscarriages. So maybe there is something about the look of pregnancy. It’s not like I’ve gained any weight (only about 5 lbs, but that’s normal for me to pack on a bunch of pounds during the period between Halloween & Christmas) or popped out of all my bra’s. Go figure. Joe made her swear on her daughter’s life that she wouldn’t breathe a word of it to any one. We are hosting the Pollyanna party for his family the day after Christmas & that’s when we’re going to tell them the news.
