9 weeks

So says the doctor and the pregnancy calculator I tried online. I'm not sure about that number, but I'll go with it.

Had blood drawn yesterday. It was an ordeal, like usual. Got one of four vials filled before I came close to passing out. So then I got moved to a bed, a different nurse gave it a shot, no luck. Finally they called in "Mr. Vampire", aka Walker. He once checked me out at the nursing station on halloween, dressed as Shrek. Anyway, he had no problem filling the remaining vials and said some nice things to me, too.

Felt like crap for the remainder of yesterday, couldn't keep my lunch down. Skipped my board meeting.

Feeling all right today, had a good walk with the dog, gonna have some soup for lunch. My goal is to start drinking more water and eating more fruits and veggies. Part of this plan involves drinking vegetable juice. Mmmm.

Oh yeah...the nursing station phones me up today to tell me that they did the prenatal blood draw too soon so I have to go back in two weeks. That kinda pissed me off. I don't think I need to have all four vials redrawn, though. I'm pretty sure some of those were to check for STD's. Still. Get it together.

The first of the Quest mushers should be pulling in to town today, that's pretty exciting. Next year I'll be bringing a little bundled baby out to watch! Crazy!

I've been taking advantage of the satellite television lately, watched back to back episodes of "A Baby Story" on TLC today. I'm such a jerk, yelling at the women to suck it up and quit being such babies. I'm sure that means I'm going to have a horrible, lengthy labour as punishment. However, watched one that was a waterbirth today and it looked really easy and gentle. I wonder if that's an option in Whitehorse?

In other news, my pants are starting to get a little snug. Geez...already!?

  1. So, just figured out that you haven't been getting our comments. We've commented on every post but I don't see them here. That sucks, I'll have to try to remember what we said. I think the comment about this one was the words "easy" and "labour" just don't go together! It just doesn't happen that way!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.
