(COPYING) this from a blog I read regularly (La Buena Vida)
(TIRED) from painting my office all weekend- I forget how much I dislike painting until I do it. It took me all weekend to get two coats on and I still have to paint the closet. Sigh. I also had the windows open and it was at least 95 degrees here all weekend- so hot. I wore a mask on top of having the windows open to protect against fumes, which made things extra warm. Then I looked more closely at the paint can and realized it was zero VOC. Whoops, oh well. Better safe(r) than sorry right?
(IN LOVE) with my new office color- it went from a blue that very honestly looked purple most of the time (and clashed with the rest of the house colors) to a very pretty tan/grey color that I love so much more already. New carpet goes in next Monday and you can be certain that I will post photos. I’m also planning on some new curtains, a different arrangement and a new office chair. Wheeee!
(APPREHENSIVE) about the results of our quad screen. The results show I have an elevated risk of having a child with Down Syndrome- my risk ratio is 1:225 (the cutoff is 1:250 for high risk). I’ve been reassured that this is just a screening, and the test has a 20% false positive rate, but I’m still nervous about the possibility of something being really wrong. I had a missed miscarriage last year, and the odds of that are as low as 1:5, so I guess I’m just afraid of always being the “1” in the scenario.
(EXCITED) that the upside to the not so great quad screen news is that we are scheduled for a level II ultrasound this Weds, June 27th. Which means…we get to see the baby over a week early!! And if it cooperates, we will get to find out the sex early as well. Think happy baby thoughts for us that we will see a healthy baby on Wednesday morning.
(CONFUSED) that my baby bump is bigger during the day than first thing in the morning. Seriously, I wake up in the morning and I hardly look pregnant. Then once lunch time rolls around- bam:
|18 weeks 2 days in this shot- apologies for the terrible bathroom photo..yeesh.|
Happy Monday y’all…
