So, we had our u/s yesterday and it was absolutely PERFECT! We have quite the wiggle worm, so the tech couldn't even get great pics. I HAVE been feeling movement, but the baby is in such a weird position that they're not surprised that I doubted it. More later on this. I have an appt tomorrow to check ME out, do a colposcopy, etc.

On a not-so-side note, I need all the positive thoughts I can get. We've been going through some serious crap lately and today topped the cake. I'm sobbing just writing this. I've been trying so hard not to cry for so many weeks...

It's actually my sister who needs them. She's sort of like my kid...she's moved everywhere with me, has always been close to me, and to see her suffering in ANY way hurts me. I felt like I might die all day. DH left for work at 615, came back at 715 and told me to get dressed. My sister was in an accident. She drove herself to work today instead of carpooling for the 1.5 hour ride because she had a dentist appt this afternoon. It's a dangerous road and most accidents are fatal there because it's a curvy canyon and people still go way over the speed limit. Anyway, she was going 50+ and hit a pole...just slid off the road an inch or so and slush caught her. The car is totaled, and if she'd not been wearing her seatbelt, no question she'd be dead. When DH told me, I went into no feeling mode because I couldn't even fathom not having my sister. I can't even explain it. DH and her BF work together and they got the call before they went into the canyon. (I've had to stop writing this several times because it makes me physically ill to think about this.) She has a hole in her lung and broken clavicle, but her head injury is just a bruise and they were able to put a chest tube in while she was in the ER. She's going to be in the hospital for a few days, but should recover well. I'll be taking care of her as much as possible. She's ok...but I can't stop thinking about it all and the what if. I know that it does no good and I'm trying, but, of course, you can't help it when something like this happens. There are other issues involved at the perimeter with her dating this waste of a human, DH wanting to quit BECAUSE OF the BF and the drive (dangerous already, but BF is always high), and so on. We're also stressed because we have to move soon, sort of unexpectedly, but have no idea where we can go because of our area and our money situation.

And the list goes on. Please, prayers, thoughts, vibes, meditations, whatever you can give. Yes, my sister is ok and yes, the baby is ok. That's most important. But our world seems to be crumbling ever-so-slowly and I'm afraid that the stress will hurt me and the baby...and, of course, I can't bear being away from the hospital and away from my sister...and knowing her situation, etc.

OK, I'll shut up. I'm just exhausted. Sorry.

Thanks in advance and I'll try to reply soon to some stuff.

My sister is my life line and was also in a serious accident (in the past). I know how it hurts, even when you know everything is going to be okay. Hugs and prayers to you hun, I hope everything gets better.

*HUGS* I am sure you are so upset, as anyone would be. Please take care and I am thinking of you and your sister. That is just so terrible but AT LEAST she is alive and hopefully will be okay. I am so sorry!

I'm so sorry to hear about your sister. How completely scary. I know what you mean about the what ifs. They can drive you nuts. Try to focus on how she is ok and will be ok and take it one day at a time. Things have a way of working out. Take one problem at a time instead of worrying about everything at once. Just focus on you and the baby and your sister. Let you DH shoulder worrying about where you will live and stuff for awhile. That is what DHs are for. They are used to it

Hang in there and we are here for you.

Sweetie, I accidentally clicked on this board this morming instead of the pg loss board and the minute I saw your post I had to read and reply! I believe there are no conincedences and God led me to you this momring. You have been on my mind so much lately! I will pray for a sopeedy recovery for your sister, that you and DH find a place soon, and that there is some peace in your life. I am so happy to hear both the baby and your sister are ok. You know recently DH and I were experiencing some similar things and it's looking like it's worked out (my car accident, having to move unexpectantly, finances being tight). I am positive it will for you too...
Hugs to you!
