doctors appt. and blood work

Polina has been adjusting very well into her new life. she has been sleeping 10-11 hours at night.She runs around smiling and happy. At the orphanage she didn't smile when we looked at her and now she smiles just because she can. Today I took her to the lab for blood work.Thank God it was one pinch and they took all the viles of blood they needed. I was afraid that they wouldn't get it on the first try but they did. This Saturday we finally have a baby shower planned for her. We will have it at our house and we will have all kinds of Polish food. I am just really looking forward to relaxing. my sister has planned the whole thing from decorations to food so I don't have to worry about a thing and that includes the clean up after. My family has been so amazing.My sisters with watching Polina,cleaning the house, my mom cooking dinner and soups. My pregnancy is going well so far I will be 4 months next week. I am a little nervous because before leaving for Russia I had a pap smear done and when I came back they told me it came out abnormal. I wasn't expecting such news but they told me just to make an appointment for next month which is now. So I guess it can't be that bad since they are not seeing me till Dec.23rd. My sister was in the same situation right after giving birth to her son. I went on line and it said that it's not uncommon for pregnant women to have abnormal pap smear and when your pregnant they wait until you deliver the baby to do something about it but you can also have normal pap smear after delivery. So on the 23rd they will look through some microscope and if anything they will take a biopsy. I have been trying not to think about it since there is nothing I can do. Whatever will be will be I guess. I just have to stay positive. That's about it for now. I finally have time to update she is taking her morning nap.

thank goodness for Polina. I wanted to jump off the roof watching the techs try to find a vein to get blood from Katerina. It was so painful. I am so happy Polina did not have to go through that; No child should have too.

It is none of my business, but did the judge know you were pregnant when they approved the adoption? I thought you couldn't be pregnant and adopt.

They did know I was pregnant. it depends how far along you are. I had to tell them because we had to have the 8 doctor medical in Russia and also a chest x-ray and being pregnant i was not gonna be getting an x-ray when I know that I don't have TB so instead I had to get 3 letters form my doctor and my Obgyn stating that I am pregnant.
