the drama continues

I had a major spill last night when I took lulu out for her late night pee. it was snowing pretty hard. I was literally 5 feet from our front door and the next thing you know I am flat on my back (but somehow I landed on my left knee along the way.) of course I freaked out. I haven't fallen in probably 10 years or so. now that I'm pregnant, sure enough, it's that time again -- Wipe Out!

I immediately went straight to bed. that's when the lower belly cramping started. I tossed and turned most of the night trying not to worry. b got up at 3 am to finish a presentation for work. I never fell back asleep. I started my day with the same unpleasant crampiness and terrible back pain so I called dr f. nobody was around.

I had a b/w appointment right next to dr f's office. I popped in afterwards and asked if I could briefly speak to a nurse or midwife. well this turned into a full blown drs visit. I had to wait 1 hour 20 minutes before someone could see me. dr "something" wanted to check on little one's heartbeat. and there it was. 170 bpm. thank you! thank you! she used the term "happy baby" too. maybe that's a dr f's office "thing." come to find out I most likely pulled something (round ligament) in my belly. this explains the discomfort.

lessons learned? have b (when home) take our miss lulu out when we have weather. and LL bean boots SUCK in snow and ice. they are going straight into the garbage before they cause some serious damage. oy!

Oh, how scary! When I was about 32 weeks pregnant with Alex, after I'd just washed the kitchen floor, I slipped, fell and did the splits (which I assure you I have never done before or since). It was scary.

I love hearing that you have a Happy Baby. Feel better soon!

Oh girlie!

I took a spill in my own house the the other day!

There was this tiny little dab of dog slobber on the wood floor. I guess I hit it just right with my bare heel and SLIIIIIDEE.. next thing I knew I was flat on my back (and twisted my knee on the way down)
I already had an u/s planned for Monday so I didn't panic, but damn it.. Now it not the time!

Damn dogs. It's all their fault.
