Just like that…

…and I’m already 12 weeks along! That’s right folks, my first trimester is already over! We can’t believe that it’s gone by so quickly already. Which has its sadness too, because that means mom has been gone 12 weeks from today too. I hope you’re at peace, mama. We love you.

Ending the first trimester this time has some variables with it — I had to go to the ER Friday night. Friday morning I had had some spotting, and was cramping on and off throughout the day. It got bad, so John took me in. After many hours in the ER, it turns out that I have BV and another kidney infection. I seem to get those more over the last few years. So I got a round of IV antibiotics, then was sent home with a prescription for two more antibiotics. Fun times.

Oh, and the ER nurse, Shirlee, infiltrated a vein when putting in my IV. The stupid cow had the nerve to ask me if it really hurt when she pushed saline through it, and then had the GALL to tell me that it wasn’t supposed to hurt, so clearly it mustn’t. Yeah, I had a more skillful nurse, Chere, redo the IV in the opposite arm. I was all kinds of unhappy.

We got home around 4:30 am, and we had seen in the neighborhood of 20 moose on the way back! Crazy! We went back to town Saturday to pick up my scripts. Oh, the joys of small town life include not having a pharmacy open 7 days a week.

I’m seriously wiped out from the infections, and the antibiotics are kicking my ass. They make me so sick! I’ve been throwing up all day. Oh well, I’m theoretically supposed to tolerate them better as the days go by. I’m taking a probiotic daily and throwing in some great juicing and smoothies too. Hopefully this all clears up soon, because we’ve got a new house to move into!

It seems like this pregnancy is going by so much quicker (so far) than JR’s did, but I think that’s because we now have JR. With him being almost 2, life is a (fast, trying, exhilarating) blast. Talk about spirited!

Anyway, hopefully I’ll have more u/s pictures to share soon (as the ER doc has ordered a repeat u/s to make sure that Sprout is really indeed okay). Later!
