Anway I didn't tell my boss I was off bed rest on Thursday and that's not info that he needed-to-know! Because we are always closed on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and Monday is a holiday, I was off work until next Tuesday. That's a total of a week off. I figured this is the best way to relax and remain stress free - especially with my boss!
I had my initial Progesterone blood draw at 9am. Thank goodness I can now have all my upcoming blood tests performed here in town, so we may not have to drive the hour-long trip to my Doc's office. Since I have several blood draws coming up in the next few weeks, the lab went ahead and registered me as a recurring patient so I don't have to go through the registration process every time I go in. That'll be especially helpful when I have to go for my 2nd beta test next Saturday when the registration desk is closed, even though the lab is open.
Hubby and I grabbed some McDonald's for breakfast. That afternoon he took me to see The Hangover 2 at our local movie theatre. It's not as good as the 1st Hangover movie, in case you're wondering. I got really tired during the movie and could have napped there. I'm a really exciting date. Poor Hubby!
The middle of my abdomen hurt all day. I felt like I had been hit right in the abdomen with a softball. I even looked for a bruise several times wondering if I was reading too much into it, or if I'd hurt myself somehow. I took a Tylenol to try to make it stop that evening. While this pain lasted almost all day, it only lasted this one day.
I really didn't do a whole lot the rest of the day. Besides the blood draw and movie, I answered some work emails and made a few phone calls. My Mother-in-law called and chatted a few minutes while she was cleaning her classroom out for the summer.
Hubby made me another yummy dinner. I made brownies because
Friends brought over a casserole for me to make for dinner the next night. People have been so nice bringing me things and checking up on me. I used to feel like this was just our problem but have realized that some of our closest friends are right here in the trench with us. I don't feel like we are alone in this and it's a nice feeling. Everybody's rooting for a baby (or two). One friend even messaged me, "Bring on the twins!"
All in all, it was another relaxing day, minus the pain. Let's hope it was for a good cause!
