Daily Routine...

My daily routine is now…
Go to work.
Start worrying about my Bitt.
Work late because I am too stressed to concentrate.
Have a snack when I get home.
Lay on the couch with a hand on my tummy.
Wait however long to feel Bitt move.
Feel her move.
Relax until the next morning.
Rinse and repeat!

Hearing Bitt's heartbeat!

A Doppler is a neat thing. A good friend of mine is 10 weeks prego and got her Doppler this week. She cannot find the heartbeat yet but got to see it on Tues so we are not worried. Why its so great is she let me keep the Doppler this weekend! This friend put the Doppler in my classroom after lunch today, so I HAD to try it out.

I went to the office all the math and science teachers share and shut the doors. I pulled up my shirt and pushed down my pants below my tummy. I put a little lotion/gel on the probe and started looking for the heartbeat and then… a side door opened and there stood a freshman girl looking at me confused. She asked was I using the phone and I said, “No but I am doing something you will have to come back later.” We both looked like deer caught in the headlights. After a few deep breaths to calm down again, I put the probe back on my tummy and started to twist and turn it just like the nurses always do.

After just a moment of trying I find it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My little girls heart just a beating. She must have moved because I had to look for it again but I heard it strong and loud. I cannot wait to share this with my hubby when he gets home.

Testing... Testing...

Testing… Testing… why is it all so hard? After a long talk and a lot of prayers after our u/s, hubby and I made a choice I am shocked about. I went for the quad screening test last Tues. I have told very very few that I had this test done. Hubby and I both said no and yes so many times to the testing that I finally just said that we should since we are unsure and if I did not get the test by last Wed then it would be too late and I could never get the test done. For us the blood test was safer since it had no chance of harming the baby. We could never do an amino since there is a small chance the baby will be hurt by this test.

Well I was okay with everything and have keep myself busy or at least my mind off the testing until now. The nurse told me I would get a letter in the mail about a week after the test if everything was okay and a call a few days after the test if anything was wrong. Well its been a week and no call or letter. That’s good news right? I am expecting the letter in the mail in the next few days. I am just worried my doc got the results and just has not called me yet because she knows how I worry. OH, I never thought I wanted to know but now I do. I want to know the results. I am getting worried about finding out the odds. Okay I am worried about everything but this is my newest worry.

Thanks for listening.
