Where does the time go?

Was it really July when I last wrote something? Time really does fly. A lot has been going on making it hard to find time to update this page.

First, an update on the pregnancy. I am 33 wks., I am huge and feel like I am ready to pop. And I am having a baby girl!! Everything has gone perfectly so far, except for having to change doctors at the end of the second trimester. But I will get to that.

I don't like cold, I do like sun. I like the southern part of the US for those reasons. So, somehow I've ended up in Connecticut. The military decided that I needed to move 800 miles away from what is familiar to me at 28 weeks pregnant. The car trip was hell. Finding a place to live was hell. I actually broke down and cried for a solid day after signing a lease (I think it was hormones).

So, I am here, and I guess I should finally accept it and figure out what the hell I am supposed to do here. This place is actually really small, smaller than anywhere I have lived in about 7 years. I have to get used to that. I also have to get used to the fact that people here obviously only eat pizza. There is a pizza place on about every block. Why? Pizza, pasta, and "grinders". Sometimes you want something different to eat. Anyway, if I am missing something food-wise let me know.

I am in New England, now what????

Life Changes

I'm pregnant! I found out that I was pregnant on my 8th wedding anniversary. Seriously. We were planning on going somewhere really nice ans splitting a bottle of wine. But I felt the urge to take a pregnancy test that morning. To my utter surprise, it was positive. Eight years of infertility and bam, out of nowhere, I find out I'm pregnant. Btw, that was my best anniversary gift.

I am currently 13 weeks. The ultrasound picture is from 11 weeks. So far everything is going pretty well I guess. Although, I am having pubic symphysis pain which is pretty awful. I am going to start physical therapy for that soon.

As far as everything else, I did have my second brain scan done and it showed that I have about 9 or so lesions. My neurologist still wants to take the route of wait and see before he "officially" diagnoses me. However, at visits he talks about my MS and what to expect. When I found out I was pregnant, he said it shouldn't be a problem because people with MS tend to feel better during pregnancy. So, I don't know whether to say I have MS or not.

At my last visit, the neurologist wanted me to get a spinal MRI. A week before I was scheduled to get that done, I found out I was pregnant. I do wish I had been able to get that scan done earlier. In August, I have an appointment with an MS specialist at a local medical university. They are going to go over all my scans and history and give me their opinion. So, I am pretty nervous about that.

Test Results


More tests and more waiting. Coming up is another brain MRI in a month and an Evoked Potential test at some point unknown right now. After that, I will have another consultation with the neurologist in May. Fun all around.

God, who cares?? Talk about irrelevant! "Oh, a young man smoked pot at a party! What a bad influence on my children!" You know what? I hate your kids. I hope they all drop dead.
