I had my first little pregnancy scare yesterday and hopefully my only scare. But I am fine, it was just super scary for me. I had gone to help my mom work on baby shower invitations at my parent's house and nature called so I went to the bathroom and I ended up passing a lot of blood in my urine. I had felt fine all day and had no spotting, cramping, or any type of pain. I hollered for my mom and told her what had happened. I was terrified that something was wrong with the baby because of the amount of blood that had passed and I new it was too much to be a bladder, UTI, or kidney infection. We ended up getting a hold of the obstetrician on call and he told us to come to the birth center right away, he was worried that I might have a hemmorage somewhere. I gave a urine sample and once again full of blood. The nurses hooked me up to the monitors to keep an eye on the baby. I was running a low grade fever and didn't know it. They took another urine sample by catheter (yuck, my first experience with that!). The nurse said the baby looked really good and I was not having any bleeding. When the results came back from the UA there were traces of blood but no bacteria which means no infection. The dr. just thinks that I may have had a kidney stone and when it dissolved, some of the sand irritated my bladder. I was instructed to drink lots of water and if it happens again to come it right away. They are going to do a culture so if anything does show up, they will catch it. I have an appointment on Friday so hopefully everything stays good. I am so thankful that I was with my mom that day, I would have freaked out had I been by myself. 8 weeks and counting!

This is the newest addition to our family. Meet Roxy! Ever since my cousin Steve told us how much they love their German Shephard and will never have another kind of dog, Dayne has been set on getting one. He finally got one this week when an informant from the pound let us know they got in a purebred puppy that was 3 months old. She was kind of scrawny at first but is putting on some weight. She is a fast learner and likes being with Dayne at the dairy. Unfortunately, dogs don't seem to last long around a farm so I hope she learns to stay clear of tractor tires.
It was soooo cold
Good thing she had him to keep her warm
They had the quickest first kiss after the ceremony I have ever seen
