No Reason At All

Sweet Narnie sunning in the yard. This is becoming
her favorite thing to do. I don't think that there is a
cuter bulldog out there!!


The drs. office just called and said that my bloodwork came back fine. I've had previous exposure, but I'm not infected. Yay! Now I have one less thing to worry about! :)


What a Sweet Sound!

I just got back from the dr. and we got to hear the heartbeat for the first time. It was amazing! The dr. found the heartbeat fast so it was nice that I didn't have to lay there and worry for too long! She said the heartbeat was in the 150's which she said was perfect. Still no word on the blood work, but in the meantime, I've been able to stay home from school! Hopefully I'll find out the results tomorrow. We go back May 14th to find out if we're having a boy or a girl! We cannot wait!


Such is Life!

Well I went to school yesterday to find out that two of my students have Fifth Disease aka Parvovirus B19. This was one of the illnesses that I was warned about at our first ob appointment. So needless to say I was a little on edge....especially when I found out that I would then have to get blood work done. After reading many books and talking to several nurses, there really shouldn't be much threat to the baby, but of course I'm a nervous wreck! I go to the dr. tomorrow for my 16 week check up so I'm ready to bombard him with questions and concerns. Hopefully the blood work will be back by then and I can be assured. I'm also hoping that I had this when I was younger and I'm already immune to it. My mom can't really remember. She knows that one of us had it, but just can't remember who! :) So maybe I've already been exposed to it and I've built up antibodies. I think if the baby were to be affected by the illness, it would have problems with anemia. Lets just pray that I didn't contract it and that I don't have to worry about the slight chance the baby did as well!
