Cohen Drive & Doctor Appointment

I recently got this email from a sweet blogger!

Hi Megan,

My name is Maureen and I live in Dayton, Ohio. I found your blog a few months back (I don't even remember how) but I was so touched by your story and have been praying for you, your husband, and Cohen every single day.

I was visiting my boyfriend last week at The Ohio State University (in Columbus, Ohio) where he goes to school. When I was driving to his apartment I passed a street I hadn't noticed before. :) "Cohen Dr." I had to take a picture of it for you! First, because I thought it was really cool - since it had his name on it. And second, just because I thought you might like it - and to let you know I was thinking of you guys.



I just wanted you to know that your family is always in my heart and comes to mind often.

I hope you like the pictures!!! I wanted you to have the one that's sort of far away too so you could get an idea of what surrounds little Cohen's street!! :)

Have a wonderful rest of the day and a great weekend!

My blog is - amillionmargaritas.blogspot.com - just incase you want to check it out.

I thought that was so nice of her! You bloggers are so thoughtful! :) {I did get Maureen's permission to include her email before posting.}

Cohen and I had a good appointment today :) They didn't do his measurements in his ultrasound. They just checked the fluid and did a mini ECHO on his heart to send to the cardiologist. His heart is still of course not looking normal...at all. The girl doing the sonogram didn't give us any new details. Let's just hope and pray maybe it has gotten somewhat better and not at all worse, k? I have a few pics of his little profile that I will post tomorrow evening in the Prego Mego post. He was very active and showing breathing pattern, which are both good. My fluid actually increased! I didn't even know it could do that. Last week it was around an 8, which gave the doctor some concern, and this week it was a 12. So that is much better. My blood pressure is good, 110/70, and I somehow lost 2.5 lbs. I think that is because Cohen must be eating more. I'm eating lots I feel like. I can't believe I'm considered full term now. So thankful!

The doctor did put me in a splint to wear on my wrist when I sleep. She explained why I had gotten Carpel Tunnel so bad. She immediately looked down and my hands and saw how swollen they are next to my little wrists. She just said with the swelling and retaining, the wrists are so small the the nerves get smooshed and the joints don't work right It is worse when I sleep because I probably smoosh the wrist more cutting off more circulation. Literally, if I reach for my glass of water or phone when just waking up, I pretty much scream at the pain. It is kind of like I forget though because it doesn't hurt during the day time AT ALL. She said she got it terribly when she was pregnant. She also said (just as many of you have) that it will probably disappear right away once Cohen is born.

After my appointment, mom and I went to find me a robe for the hospital. I love the one I got. Maybe I'll post tomorrow. Maybe I will even model it for you all, HA! We went by the pharmacy to get my splint. Then, we came home with 3 delicious pieces of different types of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory :) I must let you know today was my first outing since Saturday. It's just HOT and I have no pep in my step. I got a little bit this afternoon after having several hours of nausea this morning. Luckily, it passed and wasn't a sign of labor.

Brent, dad & mother-in-law arrive tomorrow.

If you have written me an email, I will be returning it soon. I greatly appreciate them :)

  3. I live in Columbus and my husband works just around the corner from that sign. All the times I have driven by it (several times a week) and I never noticed it said Cohen! I'll pay attention to it today. So thoughtful. Baby Cohen and Mommy and Daddy are all in my prayers as always. Blessings!

  8. I have been following your blog for a short time now and, although I have never commented before, wanted you to know that I too am praying for you and your family. My daughter had some health issues when she was born and I have a special place in my heart for the families and the children that are dealing with this. Please know that I will continue to pray for you and wish you nothing but the very best.

    And I agree, the world of bloggers is great -- loved to see that you received such a sweet, heartfelt message from a follower.

  17. Ohhhhh...and did I tell you that any profits that I make from Cohen's kit in the next month are going to go to Cohen's fund?

    I think I *may* have left that detail out.

    The kit is only $2.50 BUT -- my last mini kit sold over 10 copies in a week! That's something! Let's hope people buy it! It's really cute!!!

  18. Appointment setting is nothing but the arranged meeting between client and salesman. It can save your lots of time . Now a days it is so much useful in big companies or firms.
