We went to see our OB this morning, and we were once again reassured that everything looks fine with our baby. I am less sore and a bit more functional today, and we received the wonderful surprise last night of Doug’s mom coming from Oregon to spend a few days with us to help out. Phone calls, emails and of course the kind comments here have given me some much needed encouragement as well.

This morning at our doctor’s appointment, the OB we saw had not heard the news about the car accident and she was of course totally horrified. What was funny and a bit ironic was that she had already planned to ask us if we would be one of seven couples from their practice to participate in the filming of a show for the Discovery Channel. She was quite diplomatic about it (and of course quick to tell us that we could say no) as she described that they were looking for a diverse set of women/couples that would represent the range of things that can happen during a pregnancy. I guess we are kind of the ideal candidates. Someone already commented that if they used us they might only need one or two other couples because we cover so much!

I don’t know if we will choose to participate, but it made us laugh and say as we do in such moments: “Because we live in L.A….”


  1. Good to hear you’re better. Jan and I went through 4 miscarriages, all of ’em different from each other. After that we felt qualified as obygyns.

  2. Thank you for letting us know. I waited on pins and needles all day to hear and am truly thankful that you emerged with good news.

  3. So glad to hear you are feeling better. Even more glad to hear the baby is doing well, also. I guess you really can become a movie star just by moving to LA. 🙂

  4. Thanks, all. I think I spoke a bit too soon–I have been incredibly sore since yesterday afternoon and am now having headaches too. I so appreciate the continued prayers for both body and spirit!
