Welcome ICLWers! To read my welcome post, click here. I'm so glad you stopped by!

By about ten a.m. yesterday morning, the light bleeding from Saturday night had stopped. I still felt crampy all day, but that's pretty much par for the course. I surprised myself by getting a really good night's sleep last night and woke up feeling refreshed and cheerful. Only one more sleep until we find out what's actually going on in that uterus of mine!

At this point, I know I've done everything I can. No sex, no exercise, no heavy lifting, no caffeine, no carbonated sodas, no alcohol. I've taken my vitamins and supplement on time every day and have never missed one. I haven't put any medicine or artificial sweeteners into my body. I've taken it easy, lowered the temperature of my baths and am putting my feet up every chance I've had. The one thing that hasn't been great is my eating, but I am still working on it!

It's out of my hands. When my bleeding started Saturday night, Mr. M. said, "You've done everything right so far. There's nothing else we can do." At this point I totally believe that is true.

Today I am going to try to focus on my work to distract me(and maybe reading some blogs) and staying as calm and relaxed as I can.

Tomorrow is a big day. A BIG. DAY. But whatever happens, I have been blessed beyond belief to have experienced being pregnant even for a little while. It hasn't exactly been "fun," but it has been an amazing experience. Hopefully an experience that will continue in a healthy, normal way.

Wishing you all a wonderful week as you face whatever challenges and worries you are dealing with right now. You're not alone - none of us are.


  1. So glad you're feeling better and that you're in such a good place about things! You're right--whether or not this pregnancy sticks is completely out of your hands. And as hard as that is, it's also freeing, because you can know that if things don't go as we all hope, it's nothing you did wrong. Hoping for really good news for you tomorrow. Keep the faith!

  2. Here for ICLW. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

  3. You have me all worried for you now! You have done everything you can possibly do though, so just stay relaxed and keep us posted after your appt!!!

  4. Hello from ICLWland! Keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow, and wishing you the very best of luck!

  5. Sending positive vibes your way. Hope everything goes well tomorrow.

    Happy ICLW!
