Season 1 Episode 16 TOW Two Parts, Part

ROSS: I don't know whether he's testing me, or just acting out, but my monkey is out of control. But, he keeps erasing the messages on my machine, supposedly by accident.

RACHEL: Oh, yeah, I've done that.

ROSS: And then, like three days in a row he got to the newspaper before I did and pee-ed all over the crossword.

RACHEL: I've never done that.

Today has been a day where I wish I could rewind and restart!!! It has been a lot of ups and downs! I will give you the rundown of recent events.

The story starts at about midnight the start of today. At this time I finally fell into a deep sleep which has been a normal bed time this pregnancy. At 1:30 am I woke up to take Angela to the bathroom. Before I could go back to sleep I waited to feel Emma move (one of my many anxieties this pregnancy). Well it took longer than I wanted, but once she started moving I was wide awake! I thought reading my book would make my eyes heavy, but nope and I almost finished the book. I look at the clock and it is 5am and I have to be up at 7:30am for my doctors appt. That is a grand total of about 4 hours of sleep.

So being completely exhausted I went to my appointment. The nurse checks my urine and blood pressure like normal. Well for the first time in my entire life my blood pressure was slightly high. Being sleep deprived and hormonal I start tearing up while waiting for my doctor to come in. He came and in and actually checked my cervix for the first time. I was not dilated but was starting to thin. He checked for her position and guess what this little booger did? She turned to the head up position. Yes that means she is breech. We talked about the options with were if she doesn't move...
1. Wait till I go into labor and hope she has turned
2. Have them flip her manually (already said no to this!)
3. Schedule a c-section for a week prior or 3 days prior to my due date.

Well I am kind of hoping for number 3 because my doc told me today that he will not be here the week of my due date. Well after all that they redo my blood pressure and it is normal once again! I am thinking it is sleep deprivation that caused it to spike a little. They did some more monitoring and checked her heartbeat and fluids. She passed with flying colors! Leaving the doctors office I was finally relieved and SO TIRED and just wanted to go home and sleep.

That of course did not happened. I get home talk to Eric about the events that happened and waited for my sis to call because she was going take Angela for awhile while I slept. Well at 11:42 am the day just got more eventful with a nice, good, old Cali earthquake! Yep... It has been years but today was the day that the earthquake decided to grace us with its presence. I first jolted, which I think scared me the most and these usually don't phase me. Well this was my first being a mom and springing into action, staying calm, all about keeping my baby safe moment. She of course was upstairs. I yelled for her and the poor thing is screaming asking what is happening. Poor Eric was in the shower getting ready for work. Angela got downstairs and we stood in the front door doorway. I gotta say it was the first time I ever watched the outdoors actually shake. My poor baby was shaking so bad that all I could do was calm her down. We went to my moms because with the lines of communication on hiatus I knew she would be worried about us. Plus with the mornings event she was already on edge.

To calm Angela down I told her all about my experiences with earthquakes. She seemed to relax a bit when I told her that I had been through quite a few and some being a lot bigger. Then as I am telling her these stories I came upon some interesting comparisons. We were both 7 when we went through our first earthquake. Our moms took us to our grandparents to hang out so we weren't all alone. Well I am hoping today finally calms down a bit and I am able to relax a little. To find out more about the earthquake head to my friend Tena's page... she has a link posted.

If you live in southern Cali and felt the earthquake... I hope you are all okay physically and mentally. For the rest I hope your day has been a lot less dramatic!!!

{{{BIG HUGS}}}

My 6 year old has been through many earthquakes, since we live on a very active part of the San Andreas. Nothing as big as today's, but since we're a ways away, it was a gentle rocking motion that lasted about 20 seconds. They were laying on the floor playing when we all felt it.

Sorry you got the brunt of it, but I'm glad you're all safe! I also have a link to the USGS site on my blog from today.

Little ones and minor ones are good...they keep the pressure from building up too much, which prevents "The Big One."

Being from Alberta Canada I have never experienced an earth quake I can't say that, that upsets me any. Good luck with everything and I hope tomorrow is better

I am used to earthquakes but this was the first one that Angela felt so I was more worried about her fears.
