Nerves of Jello Pudding

Tomorrow morning John and I will be heading to the Center for Advanced Fetal Care to see what the latest is on the baby. I'll update when I know anything. My gut feeling is that things will go well and we'll end up with a healthy baby in September. I just wonder what we'll have to go through in the meantime. I hope my gut is right. Because it has been pretty nauseated lately and I'm not sure I can trust it. I mean, it won't even let me eat salad.

Over and over I realize how lucky I am to be living here, where the very first fetal cord blood transfusion was performed in the United States. If I were in Alaska.....God. I can't even imagine what would be happening. They probably wouldn't even be monitoring me at all. I want to cry when I think of it.

I have ten million questions I want to ask tomorrow. I'm sure the doctor will be rolling his eyes when he hears, "And question number 203 is....."

Another weird thing: I think Becca has the 5th Disease rash now. NOW??? How did she not get it when I did? I thought I must have caught it from her. Now both my babies have the virus. This is such a mystery. These rashes are just popping up on everyone. I am sick of rashes.

Wow, you have so much stress going on, and you sound so calm and collected. Must be the olives? I need to go get some of those. I am a total freak case and I am not even pregnant.

I'm glad you are living where you are living and that you have access to such great healthcare. Could you imagine being in KOREA during this? Best of luck tomorrow.

Weird about the rash but I'll be thinking about you tomorrow. Keep us posted once you hear.
