My Birthday and The FIrst Visit to the Midwife (for this pregnancy anyhow)

Today, along with being my birthday was our first visit to the midwife. I have to say that this has been probably my favorite birthday ever! When I first woke up this morning it was around 6:00 to the sound of Sydney crying for her morning bottle. Albert told me to go back to sleep and that he was planning to go into work late so that he could get up with Syd and I could sleep in. Oh, what a wonderful start to the day! Then, Brandon came in asking if he could set up all my birthday suprises downstairs! Albert told him to go work on making some cards.
I slept in until 9:45! It felt soooooooooo good! Albert ended up staying home all day and we spent the whole time together.
We had a midwife appointment at 3:30 this afternoon. I had been a little b it nervous becuase I'd been having some spotting and cramping. Also, Albert kept insisting that he thought it was twins and saying that he'd be happy if it was. Yeah, me...not so much! So we go into to see Tammy, who is my favorite midwife in the whole world and I ask her to check with the ultrasound to see if she can see if everything is okay. As she starts the ultrasound, Albert comments that he hopes she finds triplets! She looks at the screen and says,
"No, not triplets but guess what I see?"
She smiles.
I don't smile.
"What is is Tam?" I ask nervously.
"Well..."she pauses. Then she laughs and says "Happy Birthday...one baby!" Baby looked great. Heartbeat looked good. So, so far, so good. She did find quite a few little cysts...pretty small...more like folicles that she said might cause some pain and she did see a little spot that might have been where the spotting was originating from but nothing major. So, so far, so good. We're still early so we'll have to keep waiting and praying but for now it all looks great.
When we came home, we decided to go out to eat for dinner. We went to O'Charleys because its free for kids. We had a great time, the kids were all well behaved. Albert and the kids had brought my presents and I opened them. I got a new cell phone (the pay as you go kind, which is what I wanted) and some new Tennis shoes...also what I'd been wanting. During pregnancy my balance gets really bad and my tennis shoes were old and not that great looking. Finally, I can have some decent looking ones. They are grey and orange and I love them!
My birthday has passed really quickly. I loved my day. I'm tucked in bed next to my best friend in the whole world and I have eight babies sleeping down the hall from me with another one tucked in my tummy. I think I'm pretty lucky. Definately very blessed.

I'm an idiot! I've been waiting for you to update your blog, and the whole time you had, and just left the Easter Suprise video on top! LOL Happy Birthday Ang! I am praying for you and that this baby matches. I know it is a blessing either way, but it would be wonderful to have a double blessing. Also hoping for another girl for you guys! LOL Love ya darlin!

The triplet thing is why I worry about having my tubal reversed. The doctor I spoke with talked about Clomid after 6 months of no pregnancy after, and it would be just my luck to get pregnant with triplets next! LOL
