Hi all, I am checking in to tell you that I am okay.

The storm hit and we didn't have much damage. Just a small tree that blew over. Some of our neighbors lost pieces of their fences. Others around the area with mature trees had more damage.

We got power back for just a couple hours on Saturday, then off again. Then power came back on Sunday morning and has been on since. We are very lucky since so many are doing without. Our power lines are underground so I think that's why ours was restored so quickly.

All my family was affected but everyone is okay and no major damage.

I am at work now since I am essential personnel at the hospital. I came up here in part because I knew I could at least get on the internet for a short time. We don't have internet at home.

My brother, SIL and niece are staying with us since they think it will be 2 weeks before they get power, but I don't know how long they will be with us because they may go stay with friends who live closer to their house later.

I have not had any more spotting, so for now I am just waiting to go into my doctor's appointment on Wednesday (assuming they are open). I really think the spotting was from irritation to my cervix from my progesterone suppositories. Twice I have inserted it just a little two far I think and had a tiny bit of pink on the applicator afterwards. And the brown spotting happened one day after one of those times so I think I probably nudged my cervix with the applictor.

I am doing okay but a little on edge today. It is difficult to have company even if it is my family. My emotions are all over the place and I kind of want to wait until they leave before I have my ultrasound because on the off chance that it was bad news, I don't want them there. I don't want to be bawling and have them in my house and have my 5 year old niece constantly wanting my attention and not understanding that I'm upset (she doesn't know I'm pregnant). So as horrible as it is, I am hoping they'll go stay with their friends after tonight.

Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers! I will try to get online and update on Wednesday after my doctor's appointment if I get internet back on at home or if I go to work. If not, maybe I can try to text Patty again if she can get texts now. I tried to send one on Saturday but didn't realize she didn't get it.

Oh gosh you are ok, I'm so glad to hear that you two are doing good. Sorry about the text, my husband turned it off completely and I did not know that I coulnd't receive any text message, it's working again, so I should receive text messages again. You have no idea how happy I am to kow that you are ok and no more spotting, that's good. I was so worry about you, so glad you are ok. If you can't get on the internet text me on wed to see how your appointment went. It will go fine, I know you will see your baby h/b and it will be wonderful.

Yay! I'm glad you're safe! And I'm glad that the spotting stops. Here's hoping your Dr will be in so you can finally get an u/s!
