19 Oct

Sorry for the big break in posting. We had a great, busy weekend and I am only now sitting down long enough to catch up to everything.

My mom and little brother drove here on Thursday so that my brother could move back. He is moving to Maryland to become a firefighter in the station where he volunteered last year. They came straight to our house, and it was WONDERFUL to see them. On Friday morning, my brother headed to his firestation and new home, while my Mom stayed to hang out with me. We went to lunch at my favorite restaurant,then ran some errands before going to my OB check up (more on that to follow.)  After the check up, we spent the evening hanging out with Aaron.

Saturday we went out for breakfast and then spent some time at the new Target that opened near our house.  After a few laps around the mall, we dropped my mom at the airport for her flight home.  I was SO sad to see her go!

Today we went to the very last day of the Maryland Renaissance Festival with Aaron’s Dad.  We had a wonderful time and lots of terrible but awesome food.  A wonderful weekend like this makes going back to work on Mondays even harder…


So the check up… went beautifully.  Absolutely everything is going just as it should.  Sweetpea is looking perfect and measuring right on schedule.  We didn’t hear the heartbeat this time around… they are waiting until our next check up (I think it will be the one on Halloween) to be sure our little one is big enough for us to hear it.

My mom was there to video the whole thing, and I have never seen anything so amazing.  I have spent a lot of time and energy on negative aspects of this pregnancy… not getting attached, worrying… but all of that seems to have come to an end this weekend.  Sweetpea was moving around like crazy during the scan, which is something I never saw with Aodin.  I know it doesn’t guarantee me anything different, but I am hanging on to a new feeling of hope and peace.

I will post the video as soon as I can get it to upload onto Flickr.

    Yay! I’m so glad that everything is going well. I’m also happy you got to see your awesome mom, even if it was only for a short time.

    Now that I’ve gotten this far I think I finally believe all the doctors and nurses who told me that active babies are healthy babies. This guy moves a lot. Henry barely moved. You’ve got good flow getting to your SweetPea.
