I had a tiny, very pale spot of blood when I wiped yesterday.  Naturally I panicked.  I called the doctors office and was told that unless it got worse or the cramping was severe to call immediately.  They did recommend that I come in for an injection of Rhogam.  I flipped again as I didn't know what my blood type was negaitive.  I know that the injection is important if we are planning to have another baby.  (My great aunt was able to fairly easily have her first child and then had numerous miscarriages)  I certainly don't want to have to go through that heartache, if I don't have to.  So I went in and got the Rhogam injection.  It is given in the booty.  Honestly, it didn't hurt. 

I didn't have any other spotting yesterday.

This morning, I had once again an ever so slight pinkish tinge when I wiped.  I WILL NOT panic.  I know that the doctor office will tell me it is normal for some women...blah, blah, blah.  Ultrasound is in less than 24 hours...not that I am counting!

6 weeks 6 days!

Okay, so I am trying VERY hard to not worry and put the Baby Bean in God's hands.  I was able to work today and the day flew by...I hope time flies until Thursday at 8am.  Each time I start to worry, I pray...I have been praying quite a bit since I got off work!

Hopefully I will do a belly shot this week and start posting.  My belly is getting big!

six weeks, four days

Well, I hit 6 weeks on Tuesday.  I am feeling pretty good, tired, but good.  I have my ultrasound this coming Thursday and I really can't wait.  I m so scared that something is wrong.  I really haven't had morning sickness.  I am actually feeling good.  My friend had an her first u/s yesterday and they say nothing.  She has to have a D&C on Monday. 

After hearing this news, I went to the dollar store and bought $1.00 pregnancy tests.  I thought they would be reassuring but really they aren't I took one this morning and yes there were two lines but the test line was much lighter than the control.  In the directions it states that the test line may not be as dark.  I also didn't use first morning urine.  So now I fret.

I am so scared that I am going to have the u/s on Thursday and there is going to be nothing there.  I wish I could walk in somewhere and get an u/s today.  I know that stressing doesn't help me or the baby, but I just can't help it.  I am so excited and SO scared right now. 

If you think of it could you please add me to your prayers...a safe and healthy 34 weeks.

First appointment

Today I had my first appointment at my doctors office.  I met with a NP, who was wonderful.  She answered all my questions.  She was very patient with me.  I am 5 weeks 2 days.  I have my first ultrasound in two weeks and see the doctor two weeks later.  Apparently, due to my advanced maternal age, I will go to a high risk doctor at sixteen weeks - that is when they do the anatomy scan!  If everything is okay I will go back to my regular doctor.

I am still running...Planning another run in the morning.  Happy Healthy 35 more weeks!

Week Three in pictures!

Week 3

Ogden Newspapers Half Marathon 5/28/2011

Race Day!

Jeff and I woke up at 4:30 and I started getting ready...Race skirt, red sleeveless top. I put my socks, shoes, visor and racebelt in a bag to put on later. We made a pit stop at DD for coffee and breakfast sandwiches. Then we started our drive to Wheeling.

We stopped at Jeff's parents to pick up Cindi, Derek and Amanda. WOW! I have a race crew!!! We headed into Wheeling. They dropped me off at the corner and I went to the start and tried to find a 'real' bathroom. No such luck! I was able to see where the water stations and the first aid stations were!

The time had come...The start of the race.

Jeff and Derek were right at the start...I missed them...but they got my picture!

We made the run basically around the block...I saw them at mile 2. I handed off two of my water bottles. {note: frozen water bottles are heavy!}

Then I headed out toward - THE HILL!

THE HILL Began at mile 4 and never freaking stopped. As I was approaching THE HILL, I looked up at fellow runners. There was not one person running. I started the 1:1 plan. It worked well, mentally I was not ready for a hill of that magnitude. I did manage to pass people along the way...I didn't let anyone pass me. At the top of the hill I really just wanted to stop! I knew Jeff and crew were just past mile 7. I knew I could restock water!

So, mile 7 done...8,9,10. Mile 11 was another hill. Then mile 12 was downhill!!!! YEAH! I felt my strength come back. RUN!

Oh, happy day! Another Half Marathon in the books. Another lesson to start training for AKRON!

Week 4

Yesterday was week 4 of the pregnancy.  So far, I am just really tired, really thirsty and constantly peeing.

Tonight we are going to tell my parents of the NEWS!  YEAH!  I really need to get some pictures up here!

Yesterday, Meghan and I ran 6.5 miles.  I use the term ran loosely.  We did about 3.5-4 running and the rest walking.  Going to work on running slower so I can keep going!

Oh my, Oh my goodness! {UPDATED}

Naturally, I couldn't wait until tomorrow to test and I did the Pee On A Stick (POAS).  I am pretty certain I am pregnant.  If my little bean sticks, my estimated Due Date is February 14, 2012.  A little point of interest, when my mom was pregnant with me I was due on February 14 as well.  I came early, a surprise for everyone!

My prayer right now is to make sure the little bean is sticky and the test gets darker.

Another prayer not related to pregnancy is for Jeff.  He had a job interview last week and received a phone call yesterday from the guy and he said he had made a decision and would call him back today.  Jeff is going to call him this morning! 

Lots of positive activity!

{UPDATE} I called the doctor and they got me right in to have blood drawn.  VERY EXCITING!!!  Jeff didn't get the job.  Bummer, but such positive other news.  The doctor's office is supposed to call me hopefully tomorrow but maybe not until Monday!
