5 Weeks, 2 Days.
The days are passing slowly. Wish I could hit a fast forward button. Not that I want the pregnancy to be over. I wouldn't wish it away- it's my last one so I want to enjoy it!! When you look back on it after its all said and done it always seemed sort of sad to me. You know, you get used to the little squirmings and such. But I do want to get to a more exciting phase of things. Around sixteen weeks is good- starting to show, starting to feel movement, first ultrasound. But right now it's peeing and more peeing. I talked to my doc today and we will do an ultrasound next week. Have yet to book a date or time. And in the meantime it's bloodwork every other day to monitor my HCG levels. So within the next week or so I should have some more information on whether this pregnancy's going to be a keeper or a flusher. I know that's crude, and I can be crude sometimes, but I guess that's the way it goes when you're jaded and stressed and feeling bloated.
Other than that, things are going well with me. We are planning a big shindig on Saturday for Paytons birthday. She's really become our little princess- well I guess she always was- but it seems to be getting worse . She's become our roommate and sleeps with us more often than not. But Geoff and I are both powerless to resist her charms. For her birthday we are planning to get up early and make her a big breakfast in bed (which, will be actually our bed) and getting her a little bouquet of flowers for her special day. And then next on the agenda is hair and nails. Followed by your traditional hotdog and cake birthday party. Anyways, you may think that I'm a little nervy to be bragging up my own daughter as such, but to that I say- I only wish you could live your life with her in it for 24 hours and then you would feel exactly the same way. She really is precious. Ask anyone that knows her.
Happy to report that I am over my dog mourning. I have all but forgotten him and his yappy little bark. So, easy come, easy go, I guess. That is all for now. Will keep you appraised of the bloodwork and ultrasound. TTFN.
