Update

Well, I took the doctor's words to heart and I rested all weekend long. I was planning on going to church Sunday but I woke up with a sore throat. Allergies are so bad this time of the year. The bleeding stopped Saturday night thankfully. My stomach hurt most of the weekend but other than that everything is ok. We got an earlier appointment tomorrow for a checkup. I am normally going to use Danielle Elliot but tomorrow I am going to see Pam Tate. I am also going for blood work this afternoon because my fertility doctor is hoping that I can stop the nightly injections soon. We didn't do one last night so I am going to get my progrestrone checked this afternoon. If it stays high enough without the injection, I can stop!!! Oh how wonderful that would be. I have so many knots and bruises....Another piece of good news is that I only have 11 more days of school with the kids. Unfortunately, we have AMSTI trianing for two weeks after school gets out. Yuck!! THanks to Jud for paying for Chad's wings Thursday night!!!

Our first scare

Well, I am really tired so I will give more details later, but Chad and I just got home from the emergency room. While Chad was with the guys for Guys Night Out, I starting bleeding and having really bad cramps. My mom was with me and we rushed down to the emergency room. They did an ultrasound and thankfully the baby is ok! We got to see the heartbeat again and we heard it for the first time. The nurse did see some blood on the screen and determined that I have a subchorionic hemorrage. They are fairly common but can cause some problems. The doctor put me on bed rest for two days. I don't have to stay in the bed, but I do need to take it easy. If the hemorrage grew it could cause problems to the baby. Another highlight to the night was that it took four different nurses to draw blood. They all keep sticking me over and over but couldn't get any blood. It was no fun and I am all bruised up now. We are thrilled but exhausted from the worry. Poor Chad and to rush out from the Guys Night Out Dinner. I kept worrying about who was stuck paying for his meal. :) Sweet Jud was so kind to Chad. Thanks to all the guys for praying for us. We are so blessed to have such a loving support group.

Things that I am loving right now!

So far, I have been sooo blessed to not have any morning sickness. Every once in awhile I feel sick in the evening but that has been better the past week, however; food that used to be good to me are not appealing at all right now. It's the weirdest thing. I can be starving but I won't be able to think of anything that sounds good to me. But there are a few foods that I am loving right now and they are:

1. Arby's beef and cheddar: I really wanted one tonight but I did good and I resisted, because I can't go there and not get curly fries
2. Subway-I ate an Italian BMT tonight and it was great!
3. Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches

Other things I love about being pregnant:
1. I always have an excuse to take a nap.
2. I don't have to suck in my belly fat because it's ok now that I"m pregnant!
3. That my baby is growing everyday! Truly amazing!
4. My amazing friends are always asking me about how I am doing. So sweet.
5. It's an excuse to "splurge" and eat what I am craving.
Unfortunately, you can see from the foods I'm loving now that I am not craving and fruits and veggies. Maybe later.

I forgot to add this a week or two ago. A little girl in my room who is very "animated" came up to me with a very curious look on her face. She said, "Mrs. Greenhaw, are you having a baby?" (I had not made a formal announcement to my class, but most had picked up on it.) I answered yes and she looked up and said, "Oh, good, well, who's the daddy?" :)
