This and That

-I am fine. The Turtle is fine. So far everything, save a few bumps in the road, looks okay.

-Work is really working me over. How appropriate. So, on top of the utter exhaustion I've been feeling as the Turtle sucks every spare and non-spare ounce of energy out of me, I've been working six days a week here and there. Fun stuff.

-The Episcopalians returned. I still love them as much as ever.

-I've been spotting for the past five weeks. It's kind of shut me up about this whole pregnancy thing. It is disconcerting to say the least, but totally explainable, so try not to worry. I've got worrying covered. I have a 'marginal anterior' placenta. 'Marginal' apparently means that my placenta is low and partially covering my cervix. This, I'm told, usually corrects itself as the pregnancy continues. But before it corrects itself, spotting is bound to occur. 'Anterior' means that instead of attaching itself to the back of my uterus, the Turtle implanted in the front. Which doesn't mean much at all except that, unfortunately, I won't feel those reassuring kicks and such until later in pregnancy because the placenta adds yet another buffer between the Turtle and my nerve endings.

-Yesterday Zube Boy and I went to dinner.

Z-Girl: Honey, do you know what's coming up?

Z-Boy: What?

Z-Girl: Well, January 8th is our six year dating anniversary.

Z-Boy: Ooooh. Six of the best years of my life.

Z-Girl: Aw.

Z-Boy: Down the drain.

Z-Girl: Bastard.

-I'm 19 weeks and 6 days today. You know what that means? I'll be 20 weeks tomorrow. And do you know what that means? I'll be about halfway there. That's been astounding the shit out of me, to be honest.

-I really want a brownie.

-With ice cream.

-And chocolate syrup.

-And whipped cream.

-I'm going to go have one.


Sorry I left y'all hanging, YET AGAIN. I've just been plodding along trying not to count days, and that's meant I've kept myself really busy in both totally meaningful and totally meaningless ways.

Yay for being halfway! Sorry about the other crap. But if you have a man that funny, crap handling is so much easier.

I hesitate to say this because I'm sure you've heard it a GAZILLION times by now...

...but I had that placenta thingie with my daughter. I found out the same way - the spotting and what not - and it was low lying and completely covering my cervix at like 6 months or something. By the time she was born it had completely corrected itself and she came out the old fashioned way. :-)

Keeping you in all our thoughts!

I'm still drooling over the brownie you just ate! Happy to hear that all is well in Zube World!

WOO HOO! Half way there:)

I had a marginal previa with my second baby...and the spotting was SO nerve racking...but it did resolve around week 28 (if my failing memory serves me). Just hang in there and know that so, SO many people are sending good vibes your way! I am dying to hear all of the gory details of Odd's birth in 20 or so weeks:)

Dammit. Now I want a brownie with ice cream and chocolate syrup and whipped cream. And there are none in the house. You are so cruel, Zube.

Happy Anniversary, btw. And Happy Hump Day.
