Good Things

Two good things to report on here:

First of all, I am so glad that Jay Leno is back on the air. I know that he is crossing the picket line, and that the writers have a legitimate reason to be on strike, but I respect that being on the air is keeping over 100 or so other people from being out of work. That may not even be his actual motivation for returning to the show, but I can't say that I have too strong of an opinion on this. All I care about is that he is on. Since the strike began, I have been dealing with an inability to fall asleep before 2am on most nights. I had originally believed that my sleep issues were pregnancy related, but last night, I proved myself wrong. I started watching Jay, and I was asleep before the first guest came on. I don't know what it is about him, but I know that I need him.

The other good thing is that I got my results from my prenatal screening tests, and all results were negative. No red flags, no reason for concern. My doctor didn't have me too worried, even though I have now reached the magic age of 35, when reproductive cells apparently start to go haywire. Nonetheless, anyone who has ever been pregnant has worried about things going wrong, so these results leave me with just a few less worries. I can spend the rest of my night wondering what the effect is on the fetus after three days of leftover chocolate fondue. I'm willing to bet that he or she is pretty happy with me.

What a relief! Those tests always made me so anxious.

Good news on the tests. Those are always a relief. I had the IPS done at 38 and the results were great ... apparently risks were around the same as a 21 year old... too bad the body didn't match, but that's a minor detail ;). My little diva just turned 3 and is healthy as can be.
Such a thoughtful mommy of you, to indulge in chocolate fondue... yum!
So I saw you on TV a few weeks ago on a news item, and thought I'd pop in and check out your blog--am very glad I did.
Happy new year to you and your family!

I would be happy with you if you fed me chocolate for three days... C'mon over!

And it is a relief when the tests come up clean for the big stuff. Congrats.
