Waiting....again

I'm getting really good at this waiting thing. Today's wait: a call back from the RE.

Things quieted down significantly yesterday -- no spotting or bleeding after about 10 a.m. I hung with my mom all day, which was nice. And of course, our big day culminated in American Idol and lots of votes for Adam. Just so you know we've got everything in perspective!

This morning, I'm having the faintest brown spotting, but I think it's just leftovers from yesterday. I'm also having a bit of abdominal soreness, which I probably wouldn't even notice if I wasn't so hyper-attuned to my body. Nevertheless, I lobbed a call to my nurse this morning to see if there's anything I should be doing (other than lying on my back, which I'm doing again today, while feverishly trying to get some work done). I really want them to tell me to come in for an ultrasound, as I can't imagine waiting until my appointment next Thursday while still maintaining my sanity.

Thank heavens for HGTV. The soothing sounds of people remodeling their houses, coupled with the distraction of work, are really helping today.

Update: Am going for an ultrasound tomorrow afternoon. Doctor thinks everything is fine, and that I don't need one, but is happy to give me one to ease my mind. Please please please, oh internet gods (and actual God), let my mind be eased!

Oh, and just went to go see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past to distract myself for a bit (it was that or Obsessed, and, well, obsessive behavior hits a leetle beet too close to home these days). It was OK for a matinee, but I wouldn't recommend plunking down 10 bucks on it. Just in case anyone was tempted....

I HATE the waiting, and glad you are hanging in there with it. I hope you get an U/S too, to ease your mind. Thinking of you!

I've been sans computer time this week, so I am just getting caught up. I am so sorry for the loss of Baby B and will be keeping you and Baby A in my prayers! (Even if you ARE voting for the wrong person on AI! I'm totally a fan of Kris. . .but that's just because we share the same hometown!)

Anyway, hope things continue to calm down.

Hugs,
Jo

I'm so sorry for your scary couple of days. Even though the doctor said you might have spotting because of Baby B, I'm sure that doesn't make it any easier to deal with. I'm really glad that you have an appointment scheduled for tomorrow. I'll send lots of positive thoughts for Baby A. I'm SURE everything is fine.

OK, when will Katy Perry shut up so they announce the freaking winner! Did you see she has "Adam Lambert" written on her cape?

Happy you will get that early u/s. That should help put you at ease.
