The latest news

Well, we got the biopsy results and the good news is that it is not the auto-immune disease the doctor suspected.  The bad news is that we still don't know what it IS.  He said there was evidence of damage to the capillaries in the kidneys, whatever that means.  Benson will be following up in a few weeks. 

In much much much more exciting news, Benson got a job offer!!!!  It couldn't have come at a better time.  The restaurant job hours were making every symptom that he had even worse.  He has had his last day at Buffalo Wild Wings, and is anticipating the baby coming sooner rather than later so that he can start on March 29th at the new job.  He will be working for a company that has an online compliance product that is highly adaptable for any HR need for a company.  He will be dealing with the financial tracking of employees stock deals, in monitoring and entering the relevant data so that the company can keep its SEC compliance.  (Those were his words, I'm still not completely sure what all that means!)  Anyway, he will be working downtown Chicago, regular working hours, and even has the potential to work from home eventually.  Money will still be tight, but there is potential for growth as well.  We are both very excited. 

As for baby, still no news.  I'm extremely sick of being pregnant at this point.  I can't sleep because I'm huge and uncomfortable, AND because I've had contractions EVERY night.  Its beginning to really wear down my patience.  The contractions seem to always be about 10 minutes apart, and just strong enough to keep me awake.  They last for 2-4 hours, then peter out.  I like to think it will go fast once it actually starts, but in the mean time... I'm tired.

I hear you on that one. I can't wait to get this baby out, though I know the sleep will not improve once she is here either. :) Congratulations on the job!

Hopefully everything turns out well on the follow-up tests. I can't believe you are having so many contractions, hopefully things go smoothly when the time comes. And congrats on the new job!! So much going on in your lives!

Awwww, I'm sorry no baby yet (at least as of the post). Hang in there it will be very soon.
Glad to hear about Bensons job.

Yay for a new job! What great news and great timing, too! I hope he is feeling better soon. And I hope you're feeling better, too, those last few weeks are the worst!
