Big day...


We had our first pregnancy scare last night.

Yesterday I noticed some tight, crampy pains throughout the day.  I figured it was just because I was chasing after Emily and lifting her 23 pound baby butt more than usual.  But at 5:30 last night I noticed I was bleeding. 

It wasn't a lot of blood and it was brown, so I knew it was old blood and I tried not to panic.  Like any infertile would, I left a message with my Dr's answering service and went to get the doppler.  I found the heartbeat and felt better but I was still scared. The Dr told me not to worry and that she would get me in for an ultrasound.

I had the ultrasound today and the baby is fine, thank God.  But, I do have a low lying placenta which caused the bleeding.  The Dr said it's nothing to worry about right now and they will check it again in a couple of weeks. 

And while they were checking everything out today we got some great news...
