BLOOD TEST
Today I got the results from the blood test I did last Monday (March 7th): 2,800 UI/L. I was supposedly on my 5th week.

OB-GYN
Yesterday I was cursing the health care in this province... Today my husband got me a doctor! YAY! My first appointment is on April 27th (~ week 13). But we would like to do an U/S earlier than that. Our family lives abroad, so we think this kind of "link" between them and the baby is very important.
Nonetheless, I still curse the health care in this place!

SPOTTING
I've had some very light spotting since Sunday. Today it is practically gone. Thank God! But I've read spotting can be quite frequent at this period as the baby goes "deeper" into the womb wall. But it is probably the placenta that is forming and fixing in the womb. Also, I am not experiencing any cramps or strong contraction pains. Again, thank God. My husband called InfoSanté (he is so thoughtful and caring!), and they've said we should worry if the spotting is not accompanied by strong contraction pain.

STROLLER and CAR SEAT
My hubby got us these two very nice gifts a couple of days ago. They are by Peg-PĂ©rego and are great! They are navy blue and cream, but I really don't care---I have a strong feeling it's going to be a boy anyways... =]

That's it for today... HAPPY!!! =]
