Feeling upbeat for once…

10 Jun

Hubby finally came home yesterday (yay!) and he’s doing pretty darn well considering. He hardly ever takes any pain meds, he says that he is only sore and not in sever pain, so I think that is pretty freakin awesome. How neat is it that this big, horrible surgery we were all so terrified of turned out to be no big deal? Whew, I really needed something to turn out good around here!

In other good news, it appears as though I will be graduating after all. I will admit, I am totally cheating on my bed rest (having my mom push me around in a wheel chair) but I am going to take my last final on Thursday and I walk on Sunday (yeah, on Father’s day…CRAPPY…I know). My mom really wants to wheel me across the stage, but I am going to have to put my foot down on that one. I am actually feeling pretty good and Sunday is MY day…I’m doing it on my own two feet. I’ll stay in bed for however long is necessary to make up for it after…

I still have to take a Summer school class, but its only a month long and seems like it is going to be incredibly easy.

What prompted this sudden drive you might ask? Oh, just that I found out late last week that I was, in fact, accepted in to the graduate program that I applied for! Eeeeee! I am so excited. I probably won’t be able to start in September as I had hoped, but we’ll see.

As far as pregnancy news…I am 15 weeks today!! I have no idea why that excites me so much, but it really does. Perhaps it is the fact that I have only 9 more weeks to go until I reach the first goal of viability? Can that be right? Only 9 more weeks!? Seems like after such a slow (scary) start things are finally moving along. I am getting HUGE (Ok, not really, but I reallllllly look pregnant now, pics to come soon) and I can feel them kicking!!! Yeah! I wouldn’t believe it myself except that sometimes when I am using the doppler I will feel them kick right there (I guess they don’t like me poking at them?).Ā 

I am still bleeding (of course), but it has been only brown blood for the past week or so…though I don’t doubt that the heavy red bleeding will continue to happen every week or two for the rest of the pregnancy. I have no idea why this is happening, but it just seems to tbe the way it’s going to be and the babies don’t seem to mind when it happens so…I’m starting to accept things.

The meds still suck, though I am getting a bit more used to them. They are finally working really well (it took a few weeks) – pretty much no cramping now. Just round ligament pain (which is actually quite uncomfortable at times).

I guess that’s about it for now. Yay for the upbeat attitude I have FINALLY managed (one eye on the sky for the lightening bolt, lol).

    Lala, sounds like things are going great! I’m so happy that your husband is home and that you are 15 weeks. Yes, the point of viability will be here before you know it! Nope, there will be no more lightening bolts for either of us. None at all!

    Very cool that you are feeling the little ones start to kick. I hope they take it easy on you and the bleeding just disappears completely. (:

    UGH! I’ve been without an internet connection for 2 weeks after moving. I’m so glad to read all your good news! Congratulations on all of it! Where can I sign up for that surgery to make the bladder bigger? I could avoid all those disgusting public bathrooms if I just had a little more space.

    YEah for everything going well. I’ve found that the weeks are going faster now that I’m out of the first trimester….
