Unexpected trip to the doctor

  Tuesday I woke up to a lovely visitor named spotting. ugh what the heck? I really wasn't too worried. I have a cerclage in, stuff like this isn't supposed to happen, right? So, I argued with myself until about 10:30 on if I should call the doctor or not.

The thing that convinced me was this is how it started with Darcy. I spotted the week before I went into full blown labor. Here we are, a week before I hit that date and look what happened. So, I called.

He had me come in that afternoon to check things out even though he thought it was nothing. So, about 2:30 my husband and I found ourselves at the doctors office. We love our OB. He delivered Darcy and knows what we have been through. He is so sincere and wants the best outcome for us. You can tell he really loves what he does and cares about his patients.

He said he sees nothing wrong with my cervix or any signs of bleeding or labor starting. Since it's a critical time in my pregnancy (week 21, I went into labor with Darcy at 21w5d) he wants me to stay off of my feet until I see the specialist February 3rd. Not too bad, only a week. He will then decide if I need to stay on bed rest or if I can go back to work an all that jazz.

Chris is being really great about this all. I have a little bed on the couch equipped with all necessary needs to get me through the day. It helps that Chris works from home and is here a good part of the day when he is not on a call.

I must confess, there is only so much daytime T.V. one can take. I resort to reading a book when the T.V. I finished "Here's the Deal, Don't Touch Me" by Howie Mandel.

A good book. I recommend it. Funny and interesting. I actually couldn't put it down and read it very fast.

The book I am working on now is "Behind the Bell" by Dustin Diamond.

 I will have to finish this one all the way before I tear into it. I have about another 50 pages to go.

I apologize for the quality of the pictures, I couldn't find any that were that great.

I am determined to get through this week. My little girl has been more than happy to let me know she is okay. She's been kicking around a lot, giving me reassurance. Right now, I know she is safe and sound in there.
