What a difference a day makes

Three great things have happened in the last 24 hours (in ascending order of importance):

1) That insipid Danny Gokey got voted off American Idol (sorry, Gokey fans), setting up the first AI finale in a few years in which I've liked both of the finalists;

2) A conference call presentation for a nightmare group of people actually went well this morning; and

3) The Peanut looks just great. Nice strong heartbeat (177 BPM), a few fingers, some groovin' in the ute, and a couple of hiccups. HICCUPS! Could anything be more cute?

What could be decidedly un-cute is that the doctor said we could reasonably expect more bleeding, as poor B's sac is still not competely collapsed. But I am writing it here so I can revisit when I'm freaking out -- she said it was NORMAL, that I shouldn't WORRY unless I'm soaking a pad every two hours and having bad cramps.

Easy for her to say!

GREAT GREAT news! I am so glad A is hanging in there and hiccuping, growing and waving his/her cute fingers at you. This is wonderful!

We will remind you if you freak out, don't worry. :)

what great news! Yes, revisit this blog and this comment.

They told you not to worry - so don't worry!

I know it's easier said than done, but you gotta be strong for A!

Sounds like you had a great day. Yay for a hicupping and healthy baby!

Great news! Sorry you have more bleeding to anticipate though, that is no fun...

Jo said...

Yay on all fronts! Can't wait until you've got some pictures to share with us of the little Peanut.
