So this is the start of my second week off of work and I love it! I'm actually glad to not be at work today considering that hurricane is just hitting New York and surrounding areas and is on it's way to us. Although we aren't supposed to get it too bad but there have been reports that some areas of the big city are out of electricity. So yeah - also driving in rain while prego at night really is way to stressful for me.

Earlier today around 2 I started having really bad menstral like craps. I actually sort of freaked out since I am NOT ready for this baby to come! Thankfully they stopped. Phew!

Leg Swelling Freak Out!

It isn't abnormal for me to come home from work with a  swollen feeling in my feet and legs even when I am sitting down for most of my shift. Last night though I came home and commented to Chris that it was really weird that my right leg seemed to be way more swollen then the left (if the left even was swollen). I figured it was just a weird pregnancy thing. Well anyways I randomly decided to look it up and then became REALLY alarmed when I read repetitively that it could be a sign of a blood clot, especially if the swelling is present in just one leg. This is after midnight I might add, so I was already tired and cranky and just wanted to relax before bed. Then this happened. Of course it's a Friday night as well so I couldn't even call my doctor in the morning. I didn't *think* it was a blood clot because I had no pain or red streaking in my leg but I didn't want to take a chance with my life especially when every where is telling me to get it checked out pronto.

So first I called telehealth and talked to a nurse there who basically told me that he recommended I go to the ER. I was so upset and freaking out because like I said before I really didn't want to go anywhere I just wanted to go to bed and sleep! Of course its' the middle of the night! I hate the parking lots at the hospital because the ones closer I have no idea how much they are, who can use them etc. So I always park in the biggest one. It really isn't that far from the er doors but still I am pregnant and it's the middle of the freaking night! Also I had to go by myself because Chris needed to stay home with Monkey.

I had the cell with me though so when I got there I parked as close as I could to the hospital got my cell out and talked to Chris until I got to the doors. I was prepared to kick anyone that came anywhere close to me though. Anyways they sent me up to labour and delivery because of how far along I was and hooked me up to their monitors to make sure the baby was fine. Then asked a million questions and poked my leg a bunch. I think the doctor that was on that night just determined it was normal swelling since I had no pain or red streaking but said she would order an ultrasound anyways because I guess she could see how freaked out I was. So I left dreading that I had to walk back to my car in the middle of the night by myself. You know what I found when I got back to my car? The whole parking lot is EMPTY and there was a really big van/truck parked right beside me! On the driver's door side! Like seriously! haha that annoyed me but I guess that person wanted to park as close to the hospital as they could as well. :( Yeah I am paranoid like that.

So I had to go back to the hospital in the morning and they did the ultrasound. Thankfully she found nothing so I was really relieved. I just have to mention the swelling to my doctor the next time I see him.

More teeth!

It was a wooden block today (the 'W') that she put into my hand today, which was covered in slobber, I might add. I was talking to Chris on my break at work and he said that he noticed she was doing that as well and she was getting two top teeth on either side, next to the top four she already has! :)

Monkey has started to grab my hand, turn it over and put a book into it. I think I read 'my funny monkey' to her a million times today! She has done this randomly though before but just a lot all of a sudden. Chris also mentioned that she was doing this to him as well. Today was the first time that she really has done this to me repeatively. Thankfully the book was a short one lol!
