Well let's see. First of all, they called me with the Fifth Disease results and wanted me to take yet another test. I told them forget it! Then she realized that I had already had 3, and that the numbers were dropping. Since my doctor is on vacation, she couldn't tell me if that was a good thing or not. Sigh. At this point, I feel pretty safe, so I'm not going to worry anymore.

I'm at that stage in the game where I don't feel particularly pregnant. The morning sickness is pretty much gone, but the kicking has not yet begun. And I can make it through many days without a nap! The only thing that reminds me that I'm pregnant is this annoying little heartbeat of mine, the hot flashes and dizzy spells. My feet and back are already starting to ache, and the heartburn is pretty miserable most days. Yes, I fully expect yet another child with a full head of thick, dark hair. The last 2 were!

I'm pretty exhausted after a birthday weekend. Jessi turned 5 on Saturday, so the whole weekend was pretty much devoted to her. She had a nice size party on Saturday and all the kids had a blast! Especially Cody! I'll post about it in the Holidays forum.

I go on Wednesday for my Triple Screen Test. I just hope that these results come back negative. After this Fifth Disease fiasco, I don't think I could handle anymore sitting around and waiting for test results!

That's about all for this week!

Good luck and lots of prayers! i hope everything is ok!! I remember taking that one test... The people relly freaked me out and I couldnt sleep well until I got the results back! And everything was all right!!
Sounds like everything was ok withthe fifth thing! I think she should have given you the results... they are yours!
my doc also had me in and out real fast... We had to wait at least an hour everytime even with am appt and then I was in the office for about 2 minutes... go figure!
If I get preg again I wont use the same doc or hospital!
