Be Careful What You Wish For

I had one little spot on Saturday, but no more since then and I haven't had cramps at all.  PPVI said to stay at 100 mg PIO twice a week since I'm still in Zone 3.  I have an appointment with the new ob next Monday afternoon, but I don't know if I'll get an u/s or not then.

On Friday, when I was having the spotting, I was also less nauseated than I had been and the combination worried me (even after seeing Baby Blondie's lovely little heartbeat).  I wanted I had the reassurance of the nausea, and of course it returned with a vengeance.  I still haven't had any vomiting, which actually really surprises me since the nausea kicked in pretty early (4 weeks, 2 days) and I've felt pretty close quite a few times.  The fatigue has been pretty rough the last few days too, and last night we stayed up late and I slept horribly.

Since my parents live out of the country and have a crazy spring/summer next year (Baby Blondie's birth in April, youngest brother's graduation in May and oldest of my brother's wedding in Hawaii in June), I've started thinking about and getting information regarding Baby Blondie's baptism.  We are planning on getting Baby Blondie baptized in Houston at the parish where we met and got married since it'll be easier for more of my family to make it than if we did it here.  I've already got the information on what we need to get from our local parish, the times for the Baptismal Prep seminar, etc.  D and I haven't talked about godparents yet, but we need to do that pretty soon since they will live out of town and have to attend the Baptismal Prep at their local parish and have to get their Baptismal certificates and a letter from their current parish.

  3. It seems like all the reassurance in the world from OB's and friends just doesn't help sometimes:) But I'm so glad the spotting has stopped and I hope you continue to feel barfy and gross for many weeks to come! And I mean that in the nicest most encouraging way possible:)

  4. I understand about nausea being reassurance. Similarly, I never desired to come off the shots really, just to lower the dose. They were comfort :) I actually never threw up this pregnancy (despite feeling like it constantly) and only once last time. I have heard it doesn't make you feel better like it does when you are ill as opposed to pregnant, so I guess we aren't/weren't missing out :) I am glad things are better.
    I love that you are thinking about godparents and baptism! Dh and I def still need to decide on godparents, but it is hard in our families...:(
