Little Frosty

Well fabulous news everyone. I went to my OB today and everything looks good! I guess I'm still bleeding somewhere between some sort of lining of something that covers the placenta.?. But the doc says that it's minor and not anything like it was last time. Phew. Anyway, all I wanted out of this appointment was to see the heartbeat. And we did. A little flicker flicker on the ultrasound screen. And to top things off, the doc, nurse and I all agreed that the baby is shaped just like Frosty the Snowman. Just in time for the holidays! I think that's what we'll call the little guy/gal until we know which it is. So there is still a bunch of blood collecting around little Frosty but if the doc's not worried, I'm not either. I was told that I was still on sorta bedrest though. Bummer. I was really hoping to walk a bunch to keep the pounds off during this pregnancy. Who am I kidding though? The pounds are coming and there's nothing I can do about it. I already have to unzip my pants every time I sit down. So lady like. Totally not going to wear maternity pants though. Those things are evil.

That's good news. We'll remember you in our prayers. I hear ya on the maternity pants thing. Who are they kidding...those things are designed to make you look more pregnant than you need to!

Yay...congrats on the good news! I hope things continue to go as well as they can under the circumstances and that you aren't destined to nine months of bedrest. No one likes to gain weight, but at least you have the best excuse that there is with a prize at the end!

YAY! I'm glad things are looking good! What's your due date?

Tim and Shay said...

That is so funny we have the same due date! My sister-in-law who lives in Gilbert is also due on that date! CRAZY!!!

I'm so relieved for you! Now they just need to get you off of bedrest so you can walk/run with me a little! :)

Good. I'm so relieved for you. Hopefully, everything will be great from now on. I had to start wearing maternity pants last week and it was a sad, sad day. Oh well, a couple more weeks to go.

I might even feel a little sad for you about the weight thingy, but you always take it off HECKA fast, so I say live it up!!!!!!!

Frosty, I love you! It's favorite aunt named Becky. I will always have gum for you ("Friends" reference)

BTW - I'm looking at a sunset right now that should be on tomorrow's blog!

Luv ya, Beck
