It's a Girl!

I had my big appointment today and it's a GIRL! I was undecided on preference for the sex of the baby although up until now Craig and I only could agree on the name Jacob Thomas....that is obviously not going to work anymore.

Craig could not be at the appointment because he is at the academy so I surprised him by traveling down to Albany to visit him. A friend was down there for training so I stayed with her and got to tell Craig in person and show him the ultra sound which was nice. We called our parents and told everyone.

Hope is lost....

I had my appointment today and it didn't go quite how I thought. I have been feeling good and my bp has been pretty consistent. The doctor had said at the last appointment that if both those things happened that I could possibly go back to work. I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up.

I was obviously upset when the doctor told me that I wouldn't be going to work until after the baby was born. I'm home alone all the time. It's lonely. I had even bought some maternity clothes because I really thought I was going back. It did throw me into reality when the doctor asked if my coworkers would be able to help me if I had a heart attack or stroke on the sales floor. Being a person that doesn't like to draw attention the idea of that happening is mortifying. So back to my big empty house...

Craig left today:( I know it's for the best but now it's just me, the bun in the oven and Pooh in this big house. It is the most lonely I have ever been....
