Not the 13 week update I was hoping for!



This past Thursday was my 13 week mark but I'm afraid I don't have any belly pictures! This is because I spent Thursday day out of commission with this terrible cold/sore throat and then Thursday evening in the emergency room.

Most importantly, though, Baby is okay!

I had intense cramping (think menstrual cramps times a thousand) that ended up being a bladder infection, which is the short-story version. It was a scary hour or so of thinking there was a problem with Baby but it was wonderful seeing her/him bounce around on the ultrasound screen!

Since then, I've been recovering from both the bladder infection and the cold/sore throat and the stomach virus I inevitably picked up at the ER. It's been a rough few days. I'm still feeling super miserable, actually -- but also quite happy that Baby is unfazed and doing awesomely regardless of my own horrible bill of health. I'm pretty sure I've never been more scared in my life than I was when the cramps had me on the bathroom floor unable to get up, just sobbing and trying to figure out why I couldn't feel my legs. It's not a place I ever want to be again so, yes, I will dutifully add cranberry juice to my diet religiously and try not to complain too much about being so miserable. An unwavering cough, chest congestion, a cold, a persistent sore throat and a stomach virus cannot tackle my joy that Baby is okay.

And, plus, while I may not have gotten 13 week belly pictures, I did get the joy of being able to bring home this picture to hang up on my 'fridge and look at:



So even though I'm hacking up a lung with a tissue rammed up my nostrils, I can't really complain.
