MRI Update and Nugget News

A quick update on my MRI yesterday. There won't be much to report until after my cardiologist reviews the results and calls me to discuss.

The MRI went smoothly. I managed to stay calm and focused the entire time. Dr. Singh's partner, Dr. Han, was there. After the MRI, she came in and said this was just a baseline test so they have something to compare my future tests to. This was not the impression I was under after my appointment with Dr. Singh two weeks ago. During my brief clinic visit with him I asked him if the leak had gotten worse and he said "yes". Which threw me into a whirlwind of concern. If, in fact, this is normal and it's nothing serious than I had nothing to worry about. It kind of makes me angry now that I know this. Hopefully I'll get more details after talking to him.

Nugget News: Nugget has been fairly active the past couple of days. The loud noises during the MRI really got him/her moving. Now that I can feel Nugget on a regular basis, this pregnancy is really starting to sink in.

Next up for this weekend: Making more plans for the nursery. We're going to do some more shopping this weekend for the crib and I've already started making plans for the window treatments and wall color.
