Now that I've had a few days to digest the information, I can tell you how my doctor's appointment went to check on my abnormal pap results. Turns out it wasn't lying. I have a lot of abnormal cells on my cervix. About half of it is covered in them. Nothing will happen until after the baby is born, but after she is, they will do a biopsy of the area to determine if they can be removed through freezing, or if they need to scrape them off by a procedure called a LEEP (or LEAP?). Doesn't sound very pleasant, but I'll take these options over other more serious results.

Baby isn't in danger. As far as I know, I'm not in any danger. This is more common than some might think. Yes my cells are abnormal, but according to the doctor, it is a low grade abnormality. Since I can't do anything about it until November, I'm not going to worry about it until then. Well, that's not true, but I'll try my best.

Yesterday while Dan and I were eating breakfast (yay! I got to visit Dan this weekend in Chicago!) we briefly mentioned the very real need to discuss how, who, and when to prepare for things like, care and custody of our baby Nugget in the event of our death. I teared up over my Kashi.

But in happier news, I'm starting to feel the baby move! It feels mostly like my stomach nerves are misfiring, but in some small cases there is a definite push from the inside out.

Have a good week everyone.

  1. I had a LEEP done two years ago.. For me, it was quick and painless, but I also had a friend who had really bad stomach cramps the day after hers. (No cramps for me though.) I'm hoping yours goes well for you, I know the anticipation is scary.
