August 25th

Today I was supposed to have a chorionic villus sampling, or CVS.  It’s a somewhat invasive prenatal test that determines whether or not the fetus has various genetic abnormalities, such as Down Syndrome and a host of other disorders.

It got postponed because my placenta isn’t quite thick enough.  So we are doing it next week.

I’m terrified, a bit, of the procedure, and how it will affect my baby.

On the flip side, I’m wondering if having this baby will mean the end of all things fun.  Jon says it will just redefine fun, and I’m sure he’s right… but I can’t help wonder.

I’m showing like crazy.  It’s absurd to be hiding this at work, and now, I’ve got 2-3 more weeks of hiding an ever-growing bump.
