As promised...

The new do!

Blake took me to Dr. C's on Wednesday. I need to back track a bit before I write about this weeks visit. I failed to mention one detail of my last appointment...you know...the one where I showed up on the wrong day...yea, that one!!! Anyway, Blake works on Wednesday. In order to go with me to see Dr. C, he has to block out his first few appointments after lunch. Showing up on the wrong day caused a delay in my being seen. When I was called back, Blake got to watch me have my blood pressure taken and get weighed. Then he supervised my purse while I went to the restroom with a little cup in tow. (surely you can figure that one out minus the details) Once we got back to the actual room, we sat there 10 minutes or so before Blake had to leave. He had an appointment of his own he would miss if he stayed any longer. Not only did he miss Dr. C completely, he had to call his mom to come pick me up. In the end, it worked out for the best because she had to run me all over Nashville trying to find the steroids I needed!

On to this Wednesday. (this will eventually relate to my hair...) I got to my appointment on time AND on the right day, thank you. Because I was only seeing the doctor and did not have an ultrasound scheduled, the appointment should be quick. Therefore, Blake only blocked out his first appointment after lunch. My appointment was at 1:00. Surely he would be able to leave 1:40 and still get to see his 2:15 patient! Let's just say he didn't even get to watch me have my blood pressure or weight taken, my purse was left unsupervised, and my mother-in-law was headed to Dr.C's!!!! I didn't get to the back until 1:45ish. I sat back there another 30 minutes before the nurse practitioner came in. After the first 10 minutes of waiting, I decided to pull the ole camera out of the purse in an attempt to get a decent head shot for you! I felt like a moron taking picture after picture of myself, praying they did not have some type of hidden camera in the ceiling filming me. They would think I am so self absorbed. I learned I do not take good pictures of myself. After about 30, this was the best I came up with. Oh, and the last one is my "I am tired of waiting" face!

No roots!!


See, I told you, there is nothing too thrilling to see. Don't get me wrong, I think it looks great and all. But it looks about the same as it always does to most folks. You just can't take a picture that explains how much better newly cut and hi lited hair FEELS! And just let me say that it feels very strange to be posting so many pictures of myself. You won't see me for a while...
As for the appointment, I basically got them up to speed on the latest from Tuesday. They were pleased with the negative fFN. Nothing new was learned. At least I love the nurse practitioners there! Again, I should have just had my mother-in-law take me because it was such a waste of time for Blake. He could have stayed home and taken a nap! Oh well. I am hoping he actually gets to participate when I go back in 2 weeks! We will have a backup plan just in case!

Thanks for your sweet messages. You are also in my prayers all of the time.
By the way--you look great for 26 weeks. I think I am gaining in every possible direction, and I am only half way through the 21st week.

Your hair looks great! I think you should take your camera to every appointment and take pics- to celebrate another week!! Congrats on the good appointment. Hang in there- it won't be long! I know, I know, when people told me to hang in there after being on bedrest for 18ish weeks,I was ready to strangle them! But trust me... you can do it!!

You look fabulous! And, yes, I do know how a great new cut feels! No one can ever tell when I've had mine cut, including the husband, but I know it, and that's what counts! :) And I agree with Kelly, I would LOVE to see a pic of the belly! jill
