Quite the scare!

The past little bit has been nerve wracking here. I woke up to use the restroom yesterday morning and had blood. It lasted off and on all day yesterday. I called the doctor and the doctor told me to take it easy and come in to his office the following day to check for the baby's heartbeat. He wasn't in his office yesterday.
Yesterday went pretty good for me. I handled my nerves pretty well, but when Ben and I laid, in bed and the kids were fast asleep, I couldn't stop crying. Thank goodness for my wonderful husband to comfort me. I was afraid that I might be miscarrying.
I went into the doctor's office today and he found the baby's heartbeat right away. What a relief! I have my ultrasound set for next month, so we'll know for sure if the bleeding was caused from anything inside or if it was just a weird thing that happened with no explanation.
As for now, doctor's orders are to take it easy for the next 2 weeks. I can't stand on my feet for long periods. I need to relax and rest.
I figured since I was out of my first trimester, I was out of the woods. So, I'll just hope and pray that everything continues to go great from here on out!
It sure gave me a reality check and made me realize all my many blessings. I know I'm blessed. I just don't take the time often enough to count my blessings and recognize them and thank the Lord for them.

Ben's making a banana cake for desert tonight. We have a bunch of bananas that need to be used. I have been craving!
Are you enjoying this cooled down weather? I sure am! And my gas and electric bill are, too!

Also, my son's 2nd grade class won the prize for the most participating 2nd grade class for red ribbon week. They got root beer floats today! All that convincing I had to do to convince my son to wear his shirt backwards, and to let me do his hair crazy, all paid off! ;)

Scary! I would be taking it easy for sure too.

It started up again last night :( But today it's barely noticable again. Marsh is being such a big helper around here today! :)
