This morning I had another appointment with my OB. My blood pressure was much better this time (116/74) and the heartbeat on the baby was great (164)! I did lose one pound, but I am still very sick and still getting sick at least 5 days a week. Hopefully that will start to slow down very quickly. It's quite an adjustment to go from a pregnancy with an ultrasound every two weeks to five minute appointments that only involve being weighed, pee check, b/p check, and listen to the heartbeat. It is such a relief to hear the heartbeat and know that everything is still great with the little bean!
My next appointment is in four weeks and is also just a quick check. The "big one" is the month after that. I'm not sure I can wait that long to find out it's another boy!
This afternoon, some of the ladies in my bible study and I went to volunteer with the Friendraiser at our local radio station (http://knws.nwc.edu/page.php). I had never done it before and had always wanted to. We had so much fun! We spent two hours taking calls from people wishing to make donations to the station.
After Friendraiser, we went to Olive Garden and enjoyed dinner. It was a great afternoon and night and I had a lot of fun!
It was a wonderful day off by myself, but man did I miss my boys! Steve took the day off so I was able to go to the doctor alone, but I did get to see Aidan and the triplets for about twenty minutes before I left. By the time I got back from the doctor, the babies were down for their nap and then I also took a little nap. I left before they got up from their nap and didn't get home until everyone was in bed. I didn't see Austin at all yesterday. I know I could never work full time and see my kids such limited amounts of time, but it is very nice to get a "refresher" day once in a while and spend time in the company of friends.
