Spotting and some randomness

Spotting: I had a spotting episode Thursday night that scared the crap out of me. Luckily I heard the baby's heartbeat that morning and knew deep down everything was okay but it was still a strong reminder not to take anything for granted.

I called my OB's on call line and got the standard rest, drink a lot of water and take it easy line. I've been embracing all of those things since then. Weds. was a pretty intense day at work complete with packing and shipping way more boxes then I should have handled. I will know better next time, that's for sure.

Randomness: As I was driving home from getting my haircut I was confronted with horrible music on each and every station. I popped in the first CD I could get my hands on without wrecking the car and it happened to be a mix cd I made after a negative beta a while back. I'd like to thank the guys in Audioslave for their tune "I Am The Highway". While I'm sure they didn't have IF in mind when they wrote/recorded it, this song really spoke to me during the worst of times:

Pearls and swine bereft of me
Long and weary my road has been
I was lost in the cities
Alone in the hills
No sorrow or pity for leaving I feel

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky

Friends and liars don't wait for me
I'll get on all by myself
I put millions of miles
Under my heels
And still too close to you
I feel

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon
I am the night

18 Weeks

Got to hear the baby's heartbeat this morning at the OBs office - sweet heaven that is the most amazing sound ever. 140 BPM and music to my ears. Naturally the minute or 2 it took to locate the heartbeat almost had me puking on the floor but all is well and the baby is perfect (as far as we can tell, anyway).

I'm doing great too! Normal blood pressure, urine and still holding steady on my weight (1 lb under pre-pregnancy weight). I'm THRILLED.

They took some blood for another screening thing (something neurological, I think)or else they're cloning me. I'm not sure which.

We have a sonogram scheduled for 8/24 at 4 PM. If everything goes as planned we should know what kind of baby we're having :-) I'm extra glad to not have to go back to work afterwards. Todd and I can sit around and be all smooshy.

16 Weeks

For the past 4 months I've had a baby growing inside of me. Incredible.

Still feeling good. The tiredness is slowly wearing off but it's getting weirder to eat. Things that used to go down just fine aren't.

And the dreams! Holy cow. I've never had more sex dreams in my life. I wake up blushing due to the steaminess. Sadly, I have no interest in actually doing the deed in real life much to my husband's dismay.

I don't see my OB again for another 2 weeks. I'm hoping at that appointment we'll schedule my next sonogram. I haven't gone this long without seeing the baby and I miss him!
