Still here

Sort of quiet. Not much to report.

Waiting waiting waiting.

For July 1. Next appointment. I'll be 18 weeks, but it's not "the" ultrasound.

Missed the first trimester screening because I didn't realize I was farther along than I thought.

Dr. Beer's office. They are lovely. Working with us on billing. As of July 1, I get new flex spending account (new fiscal year/insurance year at my work).

They can send me the lab requisitions - completely willing to do anything they can to help us get this done.

It's nice they are so willing to accomodate. Such a different approach for a doctor.

That's all. I'm 16 weeks. Somehow, I'm a little down. Not sure why. I should be overjoyed. I am. I really am. I love feeling movement. I feel it almost every day. At least what I think is movement. I talk to her (although it might be a him I think) and Brody is learning he can't just climb all over my considerable belly. He says he will help take care of the baby and feed him/her and play with her/him. It's so cute how he gets this shy little smile on his face when talks about that.

But you know what?

I'm overwhelmed. Now, if anything goes wrong, it's not a miscarriage. It would be something worse.

And yes, something immunologically can still go wrong, something could just be wrong because I'm 39 and have old eggs.

I need a margarita, and I can't have one.

Have one for me, and I'll lighten up. Also, I'm sort of sick of intermittent blogging and only blogging pregnancy.

Oh, sweet mama, the whole ride is terribly wonderful, isn't it? I love you and sugarplum.

Brody is going to be such a wonderful big brother.

I can't believe you are already 16 weeks...wow! It is all so exciting! But, I can understand your worries and I am sure they are natural. As far as old eggs go...I hope that isn't much of an issue to worry about because I'm 36 and still holding out hope I will meet someone, get married and have another baby or two!!! :D
