BC Project

Well the BC project is well on its way. BC, Baby Cooley, is a name given to the baby by my teammate who seems to be very excited about this pregnancy. So I am working hard on this BC project. - 15 weeks 3 days or 172 days left until my due date. Oh my.

I had a checkup today. Heartbeat is good, sounds like this. Blood pressure is good, urine is good, and my weight is up 2 lbs from my first visit 5 weeks ago. I did learn some interesting things today. My blood type is A negative. I guess this negative can be a problem if the baby ends up with a positive blood type. So I might get a shot of Rho (D) immune globulin (RhoGAM) after the baby is born or/and if I have any bleeding during my pregnancy. Doesn’t seem like a big deal just something I need to be aware of. I have another appointment in 4 or 5 weeks where we will do an ultrasound and maybe find out the sex of the baby. I think it will be a boy but I could be wrong.

On another note my mom broke her pelvis bone and is having a hard time with pain and moving. She can hardly move. Paul and I are bringing dinner over to my parent’s house tonight. I am hoping I can trade help for her recovery now for help with the baby when it comes.

Of course you know I'm thrilled for you both and glad to hear that you are doing well. "BC" is a fabulous start for your babe.

Incidently, do you know what Rh type Paul is? That will tell you your risk factor for developing a "+" babe.

Love you both

It turns out I (Paul) doesn't know his blood type. That isn't any good, I need to go give blood to find out.
