Where is the mountain?

Today was the most beautiful day. It was 70 degrees and the daffodils and pear trees were blooming.  We were still doing what hopefully was our last weekend route and all was quiet until my husband yelled "Where is the mountain?" "What mountain?" I asked. "The mountain! I didn't think there were any mountains this far south and I don't see any mountains!" This continued for 10 minutes until I finally told him I had no idea what he was talking about. "Don't you see the sign? It says Mt. Zion. I don't see any mountains around here." I had to tell him that Mt. Zion is a common name for a church and not an actual mountain. And sure enough, we soon passed by a church called Mt. Zion Church.  "Why would they name a church after a mountain?" "Because Mt. Zion is a Jewish holy place." He just stared at me blankly.  "Do you remember in The Matrix that their sacred city was called Zion?" "oh yeah!!" he said.  "Well that's why they named the church Zion too." "Oh I get it now." My husband is special but I love him.

Yesterday I was panicking because I've been bleeding quite a bit so we called the Dr and she said to come in as soon as possible. Unfortunately I was stuck in the middle of nowhere while Brian did his route and I had no way of getting to the dr.  We didn't even make it to Auburn until after 5:00.  So we went first thing this morning. I just had a exam with a different dr because Dr O wasn't there. But the nurse who's been with me since my last pregnancy was there and told me what to do.  I had a quick ultrasound to make sure the baby was okay, and not only is it okay, but it is huge! There is no more flipping around for it; it looked stuck. It's at least twice as big as the last ultrasound. I could even see its heart beating through its chest. However, I am forbidden from travelling, walking long distances and lifting anything.

MLIA sucks

I didn't think a website could fail at life. However,, known as MLIA, most certainly does. I realized this last night while reading it. A certain post caught my eye:

today, after a long battle with Nerve Attenuation Syndrome (NAS), a condition that causes severe seizures, my younger brother died last night. This is his favorite website and he could never get a post o it. Here's to you, Luke Andrews.

Awww, isn't that sweet? You want a tribute to your brother, huh? But wait! Is...Isn't NAS the same disease from Johnny Mnemonic starring Keanu Reeves? Why yes it is! Nerve Attenuation Syndrome (NAS) is a FICTIONAL DISEASE FROM A MOVIE!!!

MLIA, you fail because you are gullible enough to post anything, and you are too lazy to fact-check. Now as how 90% of the posts consist of "I love Harry Potter and my boyfriend built me a blanket fort" it makes me realize that the entire site is comprised of 11 year olds. I realize that I am simply too old for that ridiculous site.

ps. Happy Birthday Codi!!

Sonagram of the baby - 10 weeks

I went to Dr. O's for a routine checkup and my 10-week ultrasound.  I already had an ultrasound at 6 weeks, but at the time it was the size of a grain of rice. Today we could clearly see the baby's body flipping around. It would not stay still long enough for a photo.  The pics were taken while it was in mid-flip. I also had blood drawn for genetic testing and the nurse asked if I was going to have twins. I told her that I only saw one baby in there so I don't think so.
