Slow Down You Move to Fast...

You gotta make this moment last.
Let me begin by saying I think that I have officially become the most paranoid person. Maybe it is because I read far too many sad, tragic blogs...they are my favorite.
I have had a cArazy busy week, and well I think I over did it. What can I say? When I was pregnant with Van, I was violently sick right off. It made me have to take it easy. Bri/Vin is making things easy on me, and I haven't felt like I have had to stop doing exactly what I have been doing.
I started spotting today, and I have to admit I got a little freaked out. I will tell you that if I wouldn't have met my deductible this year, I wouldn't have gone. BUT since it is completely free to take a trip to the ER...I went. I called BFF on the way there, and what do you know...she surprised me in the waiting room! Love her. Seriously Love Her.
BFF was my "wing-woman" for the night. Paul stayed home with Van, because we all know how long ER visits take (I got home at Midnight BTW).
I felt so lucky to have BFF with me to hear that I am officially on pelvic rest until further notice, watch the nurse torture me with blood work (the worst bruise already), and the BEST part, cry with me when the funny Chinese lady told me the good news...she found the heart beat!
Bri/Vin looks good, AND tiny. I feel relieved after seeing our little baby #2. I never thought that I would say that I am more excited this time around. With Van I didn't know how she would change my life, and with Bri/Vin, I know...because I already am changed. Having Van was the BEST decision that we made, and I am already feeling the same about our new addition.
I guess this means I have to take a break from running around wildly in the back yard with Van! :( So, I guess I will enjoy a slower pace of life...for now!

I'm glad eveything is okay. What a nervewracking night for you!

But I'm the same way you are. I think I speed up when I get pregnant, rather than slow down, just anticipating all the things I'm NOT going to get done after the baby comes.

It's always comforting to hear the heartbeat! I'm so excited for you! Take the rest that you need - let Van entertain herself with the creatures in the backyard. :)

If I started spotting, I would totally freak out. So you are not as paranoid as you think, I am with ya on that. And lucky you to not be so sick! And I am glad everything is alright.
