Weekend Recap

This weekend was long, and not the good kind of long. Although we were busy, it seemed to drag on and on and I constantly had the feeling of “when is this going to end??” I guess maybe I was just tired, but I am looking forward to this coming weekend when we have nothing to do.

I called my mom on Saturday to get her sloppy joe recipe and was told that when she had her chest x-ray for pneumonia, 2 weeks ago, something else showed up and she had a cat scan a week ago. She didn’t want to tell me because I’m pregnant; she didn’t want me to worry. The Dr. is optimistic that it is scar tissue from a previous infection, but as of now she hasn’t got the results. It would be nice if it was scar tissue, but honestly, after 40 years of heavy smoking, I won’t be surprised if it’s more. Not that I’m wishing for it to be more—it would be great if it was just a scar, but I am preparing myself for it being much more. I’m the type of person who doesn’t worry until I have all of the facts, but this----this is gnawing at the back of my brain like crazy. Until we know more though, that’s all I’m going to say.

CA did well at gymnastics, especially any of the parts that involved jumping. ED still would not participate in Tae Kwon Do. Hub is taking him this afternoon when there will be no other children there to give him one last shot. It may just not be for him. I actually think he would enjoy gymnastics too, but the discipline factor of the Tae Kwon Do is what makes it attractive. So again, we’ll see how today goes……but this time, it really is the last time.

The kids enjoyed Sesame Street Live yesterday. CA got cranky during the second half and fell asleep on me before the end. She was crabby when we got home around 4 and was running a temperature so I bathed her, and she crawled up on top of me around 6:00 and passed out. She was in bed by 6:30 and slept all night. ED was in bed by 8, which is rare and Hub and I retired as soon as “The Simpsons” was over.

This baby is very low in my pelvis, which has never been the case before. I keep thinking that it is way too early to feel it jumping around on my bladder, but honestly, that’s one of the only places I ever feel it. It seems low, and far back. I’m nervous about Thursday—what if, at 18 weeks, they can’t tell? And I waste my time and my one and only sonogram shot until I’m like, 38 weeks? I need to know! I need to buy a baby book and start taking inventory of what we have compared to what we need. I need to make lists, tons of lists!! Everything hinges on the sex of this baby!! Ok, it really doesn’t. I’m stressed, nonetheless. (It is jumping like crazy right now, BTW)

In an odd twist I dreamt that the baby was a girl last night. Of course, in this dream the dr. was unavailable so the Assistant Director from our Daycare stepped in to do the sonogram…… I had another dream that I was riding in a log flume boat with an old manager of mine and we got trapped in an underground cave. There were lots of people there, including my Uncle Jim, who had superpowers that could get us all out, but he didn’t want anyone to know that he was a superhero. He was dressed all in yellow spandex though, so everyone knew he was a superhero. It was ridiculous.

It is Monday and I have an awful headache (but that is not news). I’m ready to go home. At least I finally won a free coffee! 1 out of 6….not bad.

hope your mom is ok! that stinks. I'm sure it's driving you crazy
I can't wait until you find out - they HAVE to find out even if you sit there for hours. I need to know the sex of SOMEBODY'S baby.

Mommy Daisy said...

I'll be praying for good news for your mom. That is a bit scary.

I hope that your week is relaxing since your weekend wasn't.

Oh, baby, baby, here's hoping he/she will let you see. Are you taking guesses yet? I have one. ;)

Tessie said...

Sorry about your mom. Hope all is well.

LoriD said...

Oh, you must be freaking out about your mom. It's just scar tissue. It's just scar tissue.

Jess said...

Wow, that is so scary about your mom. I hope it's just scar tissue. Fingers crossed! And fingers crossed that they'll be able to tell the sex of the baby, too.

Saly said...

I am taking guesses, and have strong girl vibes, myself. I knew ED was a boy, and was unsure with CA. We shall see :)

I really hope your mom's okay, and that they get the results in soon.
As someone who went NUTS the first time around wanting to know the sex, and then they were never able to tell, I feel your pain big time. I felt like everything really DID hinge on the sex of the baby, but of course it was fine. She just had to wear yellow and white onesies for the first three months.

Sending good thoughts your way. Hoping that it is "nothing" with your mama. Hoping that little baby will give us *ahem*, I mean YOU a peek.

I have a feeling it is a boy. No idea why. Maybe because my babies were boys. But we shall see!

Mommy Daisy said...

Ok, cool, I'm guessing it's a BOY.

amreen said...
