What's Going On

I wish I had more time to post these days. So many things happening, so many thoughts. Here's the short version.

(1) Tomorrow (Friday) I will have a "second opinion" u/s to follow up on the short femur measurement taken on October 30. Mind you, this new specialist's office did not want to schedule me until December 9th. Three more weeks?! I had to argue, make phone calls and bug my own OB to get squeezed in tomorrow. I'm happy to be squeezed. Crap, at this point, hand me the wand and I'll do the job myself.

(2) I finally got my H1N1 vaccine. Happy.

(3) Work has been - overwhelming. Along with two other attorneys, I have been up to my eyeballs in a litigation case. Which would be all well and good, except that opposing counsel on the case are a bunch of lowdown, lying, snake-in-the-grass jerks. They are the kind of lawyers who give lawyers a bad name. It is a battle just to deal with them for what should be simple things, like communicating. They out-and-out lie, repeatedly, about everything from what date a given notice was served to improperly citing authority in filed documents. I loathe these kind of attorneys and they are making our lives hell for no other reason than because they can. The good news is that the law is on our side, we have won every motion thus far, and I think in the end we will win the case. But it will be like jogging in water to get there.

(4) I have been able to feel the baby move more and more. It's a wonderful little wiggly feeling that always takes me by surprise. Interestingly, I don't feel him much while I'm at work. It's like he knows to be still and let me do my job. I feel him most early in the morning when I first awaken and late at night.

(5) I finally got my hair cut and colored. Everyone at work was surprised (they've never seen me with full color!) and my secretary said it makes me look much younger. Yay! I'll post photos soon.

Love and hugs to Maddy today.

Bet your hair feels FAB!! Can't wait to get there! Had mine cut yesterday.

Praying all is fine with your 2nd opinion tomorrow!

Yeah, that first color after the first tri feels great, doesn't it? Sounds like you have a lot going on to keep you busy, but that's god, it will make the time go by quicker. Good luck on your follow up visit, I truly hope it was a wrong measurement!

Yay for the new hair! It's amazing what a difference cut and color can make in how we feel. Sounds like you have your hands full - must be really cool feeling the baby! Hope you get good news at your appointment today.

just me, dawn said...

Praying that baby is growing well and that it was a quirky measurement. Regarding the will get more and you will start to feel it through out the day. I thought the same about the baby not moving much during the day bit I think at firest we just don't notice it as we are busy but I have found bebe nurls movements are now hard to ignore all day/night. Isn't it the most awesome feeling? :)

ditto about the second opinion. I'll be keeping it all crossed for you.
No worries about meeting up this time - there will be LOTS of opportunities! Can't wait to see the hair do!

And wiggling. Oh the wiggling. :-)

I hope the second opinion is the one we all want to hear - that everything is just fine.

Other than that, I am actually fascinated by stories of "good lawyers" going up against "bad lawyers". The bad ones make the rest of us so nervous for the general fairness of things that it's always heartening to be reminded that there are good ones out there, working as hard as they can to make sure that the low-down snakes don't get away with it. Yay for you!

Also, yay for the hair - I need to do that, too. One of theses days...

Interested in hearing about your 2nd opinion. You've been in my thoughts. Sorry I've been MIA. Work has been unreal and I've been traveling. I'll be checking back soon.

I hope that everything went great today. I’ve been thinking of you and are so thankful that you were able to be squeezed in. And yay for a new cut and color! It’s amazing how something so small can make you feel so different, isn’t it? Can’t wait to see the pics!
