It's been a very, very long day so you'll have to forgive me for my slacker participation in ICLW. I'll be back in full force tomorrow!
After flying into San Francisco I had a white knuckled drive up to Marin County due to the dark, my crappy directions and a rental car that probably will live on in memory as the worst rental car I've experienced in 4+ years of business travel. It has no power door locks and no power windows and it smells like a chemical factory (I think it is just cleaning product, but EWWW! I drove with the window rolled down so I wouldn't be poisoned).
At least today I've been distracted and therefore not as worried. I know there's nothing I can do either way and I know the chances are good that everything's fine. Many of you reminded me that the worry comes with the territory and that's absolutely right. I'm just going to have to deal with it as best I can- sometimes that might be freaking out and asking the internet for help, but hopefully most of the time that will mean taking care of myself and listening to good music, reading good books and enjoying all the good things in life. One day at a time.

Boob Watch Fall 2009: While they were less tender yesterday they were still achy during the night last night and still feel fuller (and veiny!). Today they were off & on tender with slightly more nipple soreness than yesterday. Right now they just feel a little bit fuller than usual. I guess that means the symptoms haven't 'vanished', but it probably also means 'oh right, I'm on progesterone supplements!'. Who knows, just another great mystery of life, I guess.


  1. You put a smile on my face when I imagined you with your head sticking out of the car to get fresh air true puppy-style.

    I truly hope that everything works out with this pregnancy and that you get your bundle of joy :-)

    Happy ICLW

  2. Sucks about the car but your nose is probably more sensitive than the average customer, which on the bright side is a normal sign of pregnancy!

    Thanks for the boob update, lol!

  3. Good to hear from you again. I am so glad that everything is still going well. Tell those boobs to keep being sore!

  4. Sore, fuller and vein-y boobs are always a plus ;o)

    Glad you survived your trip. Even if your car wasn't very comfortable.

  5. Oh, gosh! Sorry you got stuck with the "stinky" car! I hate it when we get rental cars that smell funny. For us it has been the chemical smell as well, but it doesn't alleviate the yuckiness of it! Hope next time you get a better car!


  6. I love the boob update! Sorry about the stinky car.

  7. I felt sick just hearing about the car! Gross!

  8. Being distracted does help with the worry/waiting. Yea for sore/heavy boobs.

  9. So sorry the rental car was a bust. I hope you're able to keep yourself distracted. Congrats and I wish you a happy and healthy 9 months!!
