[Having decided to apologize to Lily for interfering in her pregnancy, Ted and Marshall leave the birthing class]
Class Instructor: Dads, this is the time I’ll answer every question you’ve ever had about vaginas.
Marshall: [overhears instructor almost out of the door] Damn it! [Ted ushers him out] -How I Met Your Mother
-I’m amazed by how quickly this belly is growing. At this rate Match is going to need a jib crane just to lift me into bed. 😉 But seriously, I can’t help but be excited about my little baby bump.
-We finally got to share the news with Match’s parents on Monday. I got her reaction on video, as she read the card we gave her, with a quote about Rainbow Babies. She started figuring it out about halfway through, and just started sobbing. It was absolutely precious. We went out to dinner to celebrate, and I put my newfound appetite to good use. The waiter offered me a taste of the wine, and I told him I couldn’t because I’m pregnant, and that’s why we were there, to celebrate. He brought us a huge complimentary ice cream cake. That guy knows the way to a pregnant lady’s heart!
-We had quite the scare on Tuesday for our first visit with the high risk doctor. When I went to give my urine sample, I started bleeding heavily. I was freaked out, but once again the doctor found Piglet’s heartbeat, and said she/he is growing right on schedule.
-The doctor said he felt that everything was fine, and that the subchorionic hemorrhage is still there, but not anything he’s terribly concerned about. He said I should go about my life, but take it easy when I feel I need to. I think I just overdid it when Match’s parents were in town, and possibly that’s what brought on the bleeding.
-I couldn’t help but be a little disappointed with the bleeding. It has stopped again, and I’m feeling a lot better. I’m just praying this thing resolves soon and I can go on to have a normal pregnancy. I’m grateful for my doctor, and his offer to come in every 2 weeks to ease my worry. I’m definitely taking him up on that offer to see my Piglet again at 10 weeks!
-Here’s a little glimpse of Piglet. It’s definitely a lot more clear than that first ultrasound, and much more obvious that there is just one bun in this oven. Whew!
-Monkey is excited for the new addition to the family. I’m not sure how he’ll feel when he has to give up his favorite spot though.
