Stupid, Malfunctioning...WIRELESS INTERNET!

Ha! Betcha thought I was going to say uterus, eh? Not a chance. Well, yet anyway. Sorry my update was delayed but our wireless internet is sucking it so right now I'm stealing a very distant and very slow connection to let you know...

We have a heartbeat. 120 beats per minute.

Party hats are unwarranted as of yet, but feel free to do a mini-Happy Dance.

Five more weeks and I'll be feeling a little more okay.

Blogging for Two

Zube: Dude, you're hogging all the blankets.

Z-Boy: You have plenty.

Zube: Honey, I'm sleeping for two now, you know.

Z-Boy: Yeah, and one of you is smaller than a grain of rice.

Zube: Whatever. Sleeping for two. Give me more blanket.

Z-Boy: Are you nagging for two, too?

Zube: *YANK* Good night.

This Friday I have an ultrasound. I'll hopefully be reporting the presence of a heartbeat shortly thereafter. I was telling an old high school friend that I was beginning to feel a bit more confident because all of my miscarriages had happened/started happening by now. She responded that she believed all would be fine because Zee Baby fixed my ute while she took up residence there. I think that's an awesome visual, little Zee hammering away, beautifying my innards. I like the sounds of that.

On the Up and Up

You know, it really astounds me just how much energy a tiny being, one smaller than a grain of rice, could sap from its host. It's pretty fucking incredible, if you ask me. That my 24 pound toddler doesn't wear me out as much as a 1mm zygote. Interesante.

Anywho, details...Sorry for the delay, but they were delayed in getting to me...

Quick Lesson Uno: Hcg should double every 48 hours.

Last Friday - hcg 175
Sunday - hcg 449

More than doubled. Excellent.

Quick Lesson Dos: Progesterone should be at least above 15, preferably above 20.

My progesterone - 14

I'm on supplements, but I'm not fretting about the low progesterone too much because with Zee Baby it was only 10.

Sometime between Christmas and New Year's, pending nothing catastrophic between now and then, we'll have a little looksee at the bugger. By then s/he should be thumpa-thumpa-thumping away. Wouldn't THAT just be about the best fucking Christmas present EVAH?!

Here We Go Again...

Cross yer fingers and toes, people. Because you all know how I do pregnancy.

I'm hoping with all my heart that somewhere roundabout the middle of August, Zee Baby has a baby sister or brother.

Man, I just don't know if I'm ready for this again. Another kid? Totally ready. Well, about as ready as one could be, I suppose. But drama? And fear of losing a pregnancy again? Not so much ready for that. I hope the worrying is for naught.

Blood draws scheduled for today and Sunday.

Will keep you posted.
