Storm Clouds Lifting

My acupuncture angel says my pulse still reads "strong" and "pregnant". I felt immensely better when I left her. It felt like the storm clouds were beginning to blow away, leaving at least some light. She said my pulse really calmed down during the treatment. Even telling her about what happened was upsetting. Still counting the days and hours til Friday's ultrasound but barring any further scares, I'm anticipating a healthy and exciting peek into Uterus World. Please, please let it be a healthy peek.

Have I mentioned that I love my first grade class. At least once a day I hear the words "You're the best teacher!" I always answer, "that's because I have the best students!" I'd forgotten how they love you. You don't have to do anything or be anything special. They just come with open hearts and smiles and give you everything they have.

Remind me to reread this post when they are on my everlovin' nerves in the spring!


  1. I think my acupuncturist must have trained with yours, because mine always says just the right thing, too. I'm hoping and praying that all looks good on Friday!

    First graders are great. It makes me so happy that you were able to get them this year.

  2. Glad you're feeling more calm with everything and hope that Friday's UterusTV is just all bouncing baby!

  3. I am glad you're loving work! That makes life so much more pleasant, considering the amount of time spent there.
    Hoping for a wonderful u/s Friday!

  4. Yeah for you acupuncturist! I'm glad to read that she was able to reassure you. Friday will be here before you know it.

    I'm not surprised at all that your students think you're the best teacher! Glad you're enjoying them too!

  5. You have a very positive vibe going on, Paige - in every area of your life. :)
    I hope the days until Friday fly by for you and I can't wait to hear about the GREAT u/s report!

  6. Oh that is such wonderful news Paige - I feel the sun shining down over here, all warm and toasty! this is such a happy place for me, I come to get my happy fix at your "home" (blog).

    So happy to hear all is well....I think I will go skip now. xoxoxoxox

  7. Hi Paige.

    I discovered your blog thru Dr. Ramirez's blog. Saying lots of prayers that all is continuing to go well with your pregnancy.

    I remember spotting with my daughter Mary Catherine. I phoned my IVF nurse (at home!) and she helped me to remain calm. I think it's normal for over 50% of IVF pregnancies to have some sort of spotting. Not that that makes it any easier to cope with!

    Love that you live in Southern Illinois (my brother graduated from SIU-C) and we group in STL. And, like you, I am a teacher by trade. Although currently a stay-at-home mom to 3, I do miss the classroom. My first born (IVF/ICSI baby) is a kindergartner this year...I love how the K/1s start school with such a zest for learning.

    Looking forward to following you on this baby journey!


  8. Oh lordy I know how terrifying that spotting can be. I am so glad that everything is ok and that your baby is growing strong!

    Woohoo to graduate to an ob! It is as if we are normal! :O)
