Frequent Flyer Group.

That's what the tech told me I had become a member of after yesterday's (a Sunday...I know!) growth scan. Right after that she added the words "high risk." That freaked Lloyd out completely, me not as much. It was a little funny watching Lloyd grill the tech - he was so very serious and acting very much like his mother.

So here's the thing...I'm not carrying enough amniotic fluid (I'm at 8.5 and normal range is 10-20) for Lloyd'qwa but I'm coming off a cold and knew I was dehydrated. Its hard for me to drink anything when I'm sick...I want to take cold meds and sleep - only I couldn't do either of those things this time. The added problem is, too much water gives me heartburn and so does most juices. Mineral water works, but I can only stand so much of it before I'm full.

End result of yesterday's appointment - one more thing for Lloyd to fuss at me over (still pestering me about my lack of weight gain even though 25lbs so far I'm precisely on target, poking me if he happens to find me sleeping on my back), a "oh-my-god-is-that-her-nose-oh-no-whew-its-her-thumb-in-front-of-her-face" 3D picture for the fridge, and another appointment on Thursday for another check and weekly's until Lloyd'qwa arrives.

Lloyd was pouring mineral water down my throat yesterday, I think I'm still sloshing...

Warm fuzzies.

My sister and mother threw me a baby shower on Sunday. It was lovely. Sigh. So many teeny tiny baby clothes. It seems impossible something so small is going to be my responsibility. That first set of baby socks really shook me up, but by the end I was drowning in them. :D

Had another Doctor's appointment today. Lloyd'qwa's heartbeat was ticking along just as strong as ever - but a reassuring sound to hear each time I go in there. I was told I'm not dilated (might have fainted on the spot if I were), so the doc informed me that she'll be in there another 2 to 3 weeks. Weeks... OMG...

One more Saturday
Three more Tuesdays
Fourteen more working days...but who's counting.

Baby Buggin'

So this all just got a little more real.

I know, I know. It should have been real all along. And it has been - how could it not be with all these doctor's appointments and her banging around in there? But committing to a stroller and a car seat. Holy pacifiers, Batman!

And the cost. Jeez...but I'm justifying it by pointing out to myself that we'll be on foot - Lloyd'qwa and I - almost exclusively. And we'll be out of the house as soon and as often as possible. I can't sit in the house, as much as our place is finally coming together. I have a hard time with winter and well...I'm a little worried.
