no cervix check until next week (if needed)-- otherwise all is well!
Tireegal welcomed her little one early after a NST indicated it was time--
I am not sure I have ever seen a more beautiful baby.
Joannah! Using the doppler this early means going LOW and pushing hard-- low= centered right above pubic bone, like, incredibly low-- pushing hard may be necessary to get close enough for a signal. Use lots of goop (KY or ultrasound stuff). In the beginning it can be hard to find the little one- easier to find your colon or your own heartbeat. Look for 130+ for the little one and it sounds like horses galloping far away- DREAMY. (You can also bring it to your doc for a tutorial).
Emily Erin-- do you have a blog we can visit? Please leave it in the comments if you do-- here you are offering so much lovely support to so many of us, I know I'd like to return the favor.
On-line friend Genevieve is into her first IVF cycle after MANY IUIs-- send a little love her way though the ether please-- she does not have a blog but love and positive energy are welcome I am sure.
And Traci! Oh, Celeste's toes! Please come visit, and I will count them over and over and over again. I really miss you, you know. Maybe if neither of us sleeps again, we can get back into emailing each other! I have questions about low cost video production! We should talk!
And not sure if you all have caught onto SPROGBLOGGER's NEW HOUSE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, well, I am in NH too and the thought of her nearby with her wildly funny humor, amazing brain and gorgeous child? Well, damn. Nearby is relative, but I'll take it. Imagining monthly meet ups and laughing until my stomach hurts. BRING IT ON.
Betcha my next job will require a relocation.
Then I finally catch up on some blog reading and discover that baby in back seat is moving-- we never did meet in real life although I wanted to- two babies for her and morning sickness then complexities for me meant the gods were against it. No matter what, I wish her well in her big transition.
And me? Today I went to the grocery after the OB (wet cleanup aisle 5) tempting fate. Soon off to lunch with my dear friend Tammy (who gave birth to her first baby in her driveway after a precipitous labor, so I feel like I'm off the hook if something should happen, since I know she can handle it).
This weekend, for me, is all about creativity. I promised Doug I would step away from the panic stricken job search and just do things I enjoy for the next few days. I will try.
Yesterday's amazing (non baby) moment? THUNDER -- hard rain, wild wind, rain hammering on the roof and windows, and leaves blowing in circles. It was magnificent.
