I have no idea how I forgot to share

the most exciting news of my dr visit....we heard the baby's heartbeat!!!! I've been waiting and waiting for this milestone for weeks and I totally forget to report when it happens. It was a bit tricky to find at first and I was getting nervous but we found it. It registered in at 147-150 range. :o) Olivia got to hear it too as she was with me. I don't think she quite understood what it was or what the big deal was about it.

Val's pain seems to have lessened quite a bit. She still hasn't passed the stone yet. She's getting a bit impatient about it. This morning she was complaining about being dizzy and a headache. I encouraged her to get up and about. It's hard for her to see that it'll help when the dizziness gets worse when she gets out of bed.

Liz went to classes with Drew this morning. I was a little leary about letting her go but Drew insisted it was alright. It'll be interesting to hear how it's actually gone. Liz is out of school for the rest of the week. Her class has gone to Washington DC and she isn't going along. I'm hoping to take her to the mall and fabric store, maybe even lunch. She's really been wanting a pattern and fabric so she can start using her machine. I keep telling her to look at my huge stash of fabric but she says it's not the same. Have to admit I know how she feels. LOL I've also had the same inkling when thinking of sewing maternity clothes (need different/new fabric!)

I actually wrote up a list of things to do today and they're not all just everyday things. I haven't gotten to them yet, although I did do a bit of general stuff this morning before school started. I'd love it if I could report that I got a few things crossed off. I was laughing at the list though, my bedroom isn't on it and it's the WORSE room in the house. I know the only way I'm going to get in there and get it done is to put it at the top of everything else. Now to just do it. Maybe I'll make a goal. I WILL give myself a birthday present and have my room perfectly clean by the time my birthday comes around in 2wks.

Congrats on the Heartbeat Kim. That's wonderful news. I'm so sorry about Val's kidney stone. That just sounds awful and it must have been scary at first. I'm sure your B/P was partly up from the stress of the week. I hope the numbers come down for you.

Take Care of yourself!!!
