This weekend was actually pretty stressful. I thought that I had some sort of infection that started on Saturday but decided to wait it out until Monday. Then it seemed to be worse Sunday so I panicked & called the doctor's office Sunday morning. They said it could possibly be an infection but if it was & I am pregnant, it shouldn't have any effect on the pregnancy. They said if I wanted I could go to urgent care. I decided to wait until Monday & when I woke up this morning everything was fine. I had been praying & know this was an answer to a prayer.
The rest of the weekend was good! Friday I made a delicious beef & vegetable stew with mashed potatoes. I let it simmer while we met up with my sister at the dog park. She has a puppy that is the same size as our dog, but once her dog is full grown, she will be MUCH bigger. We were cracking up because all of the other dogs at the park had hand knit sweaters. Guess we aren't the best dog owners, haha! We stayed until it was almost dark & watched the gorgeous sunset. Than my husand & I headed home & ate warm stew, peanut butter dark chocolate cookies, & watched a movie.
Saturday my husband had to work so I got up early & got in a cleaning frenzy, cleaning all the bathrooms, the kitchen, & steam cleaning the floors. It was much needed. Then my little sister came over & we painted our nails & tried to do braids on each other. We tried to do a milkmaid type braid & it ended up looking stange on both of us!! Then we practiced doing dutch braids & they turned out pretty good! I really want to start practicing braiding more! Then N got home & we went to the cutest little French cafe for lunch. He got a Monte Cristo sandwich & fries & I got one of their specials, lasagna w/ homeade bread & salad, sooo good! Then we went to Trader Joes so I could get a mini Christmas tree with sparkles (I get one every year) & we ended up leaving with way too many truffles & chocolates. They have the best holiday treats I was so tempted to buy everything!
At night we relaxed at home & ended up having leftovers & watching the new Pete's Dragon movie at night. I don't know why but I got so emotional & could not stop crying at the end. Part of it was that the movie made me so sad how Pete & Elliot were seperated but then it turned into me crying because for some reason I just felt like this IUI treatment had not worked. I was feeling so stressed that I might have some infection & I just felt overcome with stress & sorrow. I was just sobbing & sobbing. N was so sweet & just held me & let my cry. Then we went to bed & I woke up feeling much better. Sometimes it just feels good to cry.
Sunday we went to church & it was such a great & uplifting meeting. We fasted & prayed that either I was pregnant & would have a healthy pregnancy or that we could be filled with comfort & peace if I was not pregnant. We also fasted & prayed for one of my old high school friends who just had a stillborn birth for her baby girl a week before her due date, so heartbreaking. After church, we relaxed & N took a nap while I wrapped some Christmas presents & made cookie dough to bring for family dinner. We had dinner at my mom & dad's house. They made teriyaki chicken, mashed potaotes, & gravy, my sister brought roasted vegetables, & I made dark chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies. Everything was so good! After dinner we watched the First Presidency Christmas Devotional which was beautiful & I loved all of the music. Then we visited & facetimed with sisters! We stayed until late & went right to bed when we got home.
Today I am at work & feel like I can not focus on anything. I know that I will be able to take a pregnancy test tomorrow morning & will just be so nervous/excited until then! I really don't know how to keep distracted all day today! After work I'm going to try & keep busy by making dinner, going to yoga, & then watching a movie or something! I just know I will be waking up all night though!
