Baby Update

Just FYI that the tests came back normal. I have been losing my mind from guilt and worry the last two weeks after hearing I tested positive for toxoplasmosis (a parasite from raw meat that can cross the placenta and cause major birth defects of blindness or brain damage). Seems the lab messed up my results twice but finally we did get a clear answer and we are healthy. For those of you who knew thanks for your prayers, for those who didn't thanks for putting up with my emotions. I think we will be celebrating for FHE tonight!

glad the worry is over, you certainly don't need that on top of all the other wonders that are pregnancy. i love when the worst feature becomes the best though, i must say. you look so good! you skinny thing! and where do you find your cute clothes?

I'm glad to hear everything is o-k!! I'm so sorry you had to go through that stress, there is nothing worse than having something wrong with one of your children, even if they're not officially here yet.
