I also had my 33 week check up at the ob today: 155/bpm in the babes little heart and "everything looks good"--I complain that these appointments seem so pointless sometimes, but it is truly a comfort to just hear those words from the doc. So much has to go right in bringing a child into the world--which means, so much can go wrong. I'm so grateful for a good report. No ultrasound, the one below is generic. Craig and Lucy came with me and while the doctor was putting the doppler on my belly Lucy kept asking, with such a concerned tone, "mommy doing?". It was nice to have them there. Afterwards I picked Seth up from Preschool--he didn't want to leave.
The rest of the day, Craig devoted to catching some shuteye before he hit the ER for the night so the kids and I went over to a friends: the kids played while my good friend Alyssa and I chatted, then she fed us all dinner--yummy burritos! Then home again, baths, and bed. I think made a quick trip to Basha's (our local grocery store) for some beverages to get me through the night. As I was settling into my evening, I sent Craig off to work with a bag of goodies to get him through the night.
So, thanks to friends and something to sip, it's been a good day after labor day!
