I got a call that Carmen was in the E.R. today with horrible abdominal pain. Of course I thought the worse about the baby.
The baby is fine, though. It appears the Carmen has a cyst on her ovary (this is the week for ovarian cysts in my family!) that is causing her pain. It’s really tiny and she’s been told she will just have to put up with it until after the baby is born. Poor thing!
The good news is that it has been determined through an ultrasound at the E.R. that Carmen is 6 weeks 4 days along and while the heartbeat couldn’t yet be detected, it could be seen – amazing! The aniticipated due date is December 24! What a holiday it will be!
