So the pregnancy update. We are, indeed, expecting number two. We were so hesitant to tell anyone after what happened in September, but we have made in to 10 weeks, and are feeling pretty good! We heard the babys heartbeat yesterday, it was 171 beats a minute. The nurse said that was really good, and really strong for a little bean! We are starting to feel more positive as my belly starts to grow. I think that Derrick and I were both so gaurded after our last pregnancy ended. We were torn between wanting to tell and waiting until we were in a "safe" place! We are feeling positive though, and even have started to talk about what the baby might be! My next appointment is on the 24th, and we should set up the sex identifying sono at that point. So hopefully sometime near the end of february we should know! I have been feeling okay. I have had some MAJOR bouts of morning, and evening sickness. I am really tired, but I am also chasing a 15 month old, so I think that is to be expected!
Not much else on the homefront. Derricks mom went for a stress test today and they found a gray spot on her heart. They are not really sure what it is at this point, but are thinking that they might have to send her to Springfield again for surgery. I think that they think it might be a blood clot. She cant take coumadin at this point, so i think that the only other real option for her is surgery. She should hear tomorrow or Friday what the "plan" will be. I cant understand why she has to go to Springfield, when Carle is one of the top 100 heart hospitals in the country. Seems a little iffy to me. I told her that I think that its time she retires!
Riley will be starting a new daycare on the 8th. As much as we love Miss Jen, she has four children to care for, and they are getting more and more active in things every day. I think that there is so many school activities and so much running, that it is probably wearing her down. Although we totally understand her decision, this will be a hard move for all of us. Riley will start to go to little lamb daycare, in Tuscola. We went and talked to Miss Ashley last night, and after a little bit riley really warmed up to her boys. I think that I am struggling because Jen has taken care of Riley since she was a baby. Its what Riley knows. Its what mommy knows. And Miss Ashleys is new. Mommy doesnt know it. Riley doesnt know it. Change is good though. I cant hate change so much that I teach my daughter to hate change. Thats not one of the life lessons I want to teach (to hate change). We will miss Miss Jen so much though! We love you miss Jen!!
I am wracking my brain trying to think if any other major points of interest. The Illini/Michigan game is on right now. We are winning, but only by one. I am not sure that I want to watch. I love a good game, but I also like to yell during a good game. And the wee one is sleeping already.
Well thats all the update for now.....
