Another Herm Moment

From what we can tell, Herm has a good head on his/her shoulders!

Herm, 16 weeks (shhh! someone's sleeping!)

Okay, so I had kind of a scary moment this week. On Thursday I was walking down my stairs and was near the bottom when I coughed. My foot slipped out from under me and I proceeded to slip down the steps. I slid down two-three stairs on my back side! I got up right away and was more worried about Herm than anything, so I didn't feel any pain right away. I called the doctor and they got me in that afternoon just to check to make sure Herm was okay. Thank goodness I fell right on the fleshy part of my bum! I fell the best way possible. It is also good that Herm is not so far along because he/she is still quite cushioned inside of me at the moment. Everything is fine. In fact, by the time we got to the doctor's office, Herm was fast asleep. The heartrate was high (162), but mostly because mine was! I also have a very high resting heartrate, so my babies are likely to have high heartrates. Sorry, Mom, I guess that throws your heartrate theory out at least for me and my babies! Anyhow, we are so thankful our little avacado is safe and doing well. We did get a great shot of Herm's head. We'd like to think our little one has a good head on his/her shoulders!

Yeah for sleeping babies. Just try to keep it that way for the next 20 years, especially at 3 in the morning! :)
