Doing much better

Thanks, once again, for all the love! I am truly grateful to have this wonderful community of women to help me get through these rough times. 

I'm feeling much better about things (by feeling better I mean feeling nauseous and exhausted).  I have all confidence that there is a baby growing ... for now. 

Hubby and I leave for our trip on Sunday.  Flying to the west coast for some much needed R and R.  I'm a bit scared of the flight.  Even though I've researched that it's perfectly safe, I'm just worried as it does increase your chances of miscarrying.  This trip was booked long before we found out about this baby and we feel it is important to go.  We can't get our money back anyways. 

Crossing my fingers everything is okay!


  1. Wishing you a wonderful and relaxing vacation!

  2. Hang in there! Hope your vacation is just wonderful and you can put your worries aside. Where are you off to?

  3. Just remember those body scanner things are OPTIONAL. If they are making everyone go through them you can opt out (and get felt up instead). I chose to do this on my last flight and will again next week when we also go west for a relaxing weekend because it's a dose of radiation. They don't make pregnant women go through them but if you're not showing then they just assume you have to go through. If you're not planning on going through make sure you leave a little extra time to get through security because it can take a minute or two for an agent to come over and do the pat down.

    Apparently the radiation is the same as 2 minutes spent in flight, but it's given as a burst all at once in a second. It just doesn't seem safe to me (for an unborn baby, for adults it's probably fine). So I prefer to be felt up, which is unpleasant but definitely has no side effects.

    Not to freak you out or anything. Ha! Enjoy your trip, you deserve some relaxation!!

  4. I hope you have a nice relaxing vacation!
