Don't Panic

I will be leaving shortly for my ultrasound.  I really, really, really, super hope that everything is just fine and the spotting isn't a big deal.  Just normal spotting that can sometimes happen in pregnancy.  We will soon find out.

If all goes well, I will be continuing my weekend plans as originally scheduled.  This means I won't be home at all to update you on how the appointment goes.  So don't panic!  No news will be good news!  I haven't yet ventured to posting from my phone and I wouldn't have time to anyway.

This weekend is another College Exposure Tournament for our softball team, but it is much closer to home.  We won't be traveling out of state, but we do plan to stay over at a friends house since it is still over an hour drive from where we live.  However, if the Dr. recommends me to stay home this weekend, I will.  Hubby will still coach the team as we have no choice in that, but he will come home after the games today so he can give me my PIO shot.  It would just suck for him because he will have to turn around and drive back early tomorrow morning.

I do want to clarify that I am not over taxing myself on the softball field.  My role for this team is very backseat.  My job during these tournaments is to talk to the college coaches.  NCAA recruiting rules prevent any interaction between the college coaches and players/parents.  These coaches are not allowed to talk to the players or their parents until July 1st, the summer before their Senior year in high school.  That means I act as the go between until then.  Most DI athletes have already made a verbal commitment to a college by their Junior/Senior year.  It seems insane to ask a 15 year old to make such a big decision, but unfortunately that is how the recruiting game is done.  If the athlete wants to go to a small college, then it's not as big of a deal.  However, if they are a big time athlete playing at the top level, those colleges already have their recruiting classes picked out and scholarships promised for the classes of 2014 and 2015.

Anyway, my job is to sit in the stands and watch the games.  If a coach happens to come by to scout our our players, I talk to them.  No big deal and a lot of fun.  No need to worry that I am overdoing it. 

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone for your prayers and well wishes.  I appreciate it more than words can say.

  14. still hoping that no news is good news. Hoping that the spotting has stopped. I had very tiny amounts of spotting in this pregnancy and it was enough to make me cry with worry... but everything has been fine.
