What to Expect When You are Expecting

Late last night Tracy Lyn came into bed shivering like crazy.  Like crazy because the temp was 64 degrees.  Her teeth chattering like Scooby Doo's do when he's cold or scared.  At first I thought this was a ploy to get me to turn on the furnace.

Funny thing was she didn't feel cold.  So I held her until the shaking frenzy ended and made sure she didn't break a tooth with all the chattering.  She soon fell asleep but now I was wide awake.  What's the deal with that?

I hit the Internet.  Not always the most reliable resource of information.  Case in point, they'll give anyone a blog!  Even WebMD didn't do the trick.

She did get "the shakes" once before shortly after Teresa was born but only once.  Thankfully we had our regular baby doc appointment the next day.  Doc said it was progesterone and nothing to worry about.

So what can you expect when you're expecting?  With Teresa we had the most normal, uneventful pregnancy.  With Baby Pumpkin we've been to see the doc every week this month.  Every pregnancy is different and prior results are not indicative of future performance.  (Maybe performance isn't quite the right word... but you see a lot of infomercials at 3 a.m.)

You can expect to doubt yourself more, pray more, and hopefully come to trust in God more -- especially when things get shaky.

P.S. We had a later appointment at the hospital so the free valet parking was not available.
