Update on Life in IL

September 2, 2008 by Megan

So in Ryan’s last “update” post, he mentioned that the move combined with the pregnancy had led me to catch “some kind of bug.”  Well it turns out that a bug actually caught me, and gave me West Nile Virus!  I started feeling very tired the Saturday after we arrived, and that night began what [...]

January 19, 2008 by Megan

So I had my Intake appointment with the nurse on Thursday… it’s the one where they review all your medical history (again!). They ordered the normal blood panels and other tests that all pregnant ladies get, plus a quantitative hcg test. In the past, this means I’ve had to take one blood test, and then [...]

Here we go again!

January 11, 2008 by Megan

193 Yesterday morning, I decided I should take a pregnancy test (I was a day late). I followed the instructions, and waited while the little hour glass flashed on the screen to tell me it was working. After about a minute, I thought I saw it flash “Pregnant”. But when I reached down to pick [...]
