I had my 22 week doctor appt today and follow up u/s. Emily is still a girl and her spine and heart looked great. The technician was able to get all the measurements she needed this time. I got my orange drink for the GTT next visit and was only up 0.5 lbs from last visit. I have gained an overall of 2lbs which I thought would be a little more at this time. I will probably start gaining like I should from here on out if this pregnancy follows Nicholas.
I met a new dr. in the practice and he was really nice. We discussed my post-partum depression for a bit and were talking about how I am feeling now to make sure that I don't slip into depression before baby girl gets here. As of right now we decided I am borderline but definitely heading towards it again so I'm just going to keep a close eye on how I am feeling and if I need something before she gets here they will do it. I really want to avoid taking anything if I can but I do feel myself slipping into it a little so I need to watch out. I really think that my work situation is what is causing a lot of headaches and worries and I am FINALLY moving groups next Friday so hopefully things will get better. I am still getting treated badly by my boss on a daily basis because I am leaving the group. I wish he would just suck it up and deal with the situation instead of taking it out on me.
Anyways, this turned into a book so for those who have read this far. The hurricane is coming through tonight/tomorrow AM so I am thinking I won't have internet or power at least tomorrow, maybe through the weekend. We are ready and waiting. I told Nicholas we were going to have a hurricane party tomorrow with ice cream
Stay safe! Glad the appt went well and way to go on the weight gain! I know you're trying to stay in the 15-25 range I think you'll do it. glad to hear baby is looking great too.

Congrats on a good appt! I know how you feel with the work nonsense. I swear all last week I did nothing but cry because I hate coming here every day now... dread it in fact. That with other financial worries has me going crazy, but I didn't mention it to my OB as I don't want them to worry (and I don't want to take anything because I've heard too many horror stories about anti-depressants during pregnancy!). I hope the storm doesn't hit you guys too hard!

Thanks ladies! I had post partum depression with Nicholas so I remember how I felt with that so hopefully I can get help as soon as I recognize it if it comes back.
As for the hurricane, we finally have power again after being out for 10 hours. Entertaining a toddler 10 hours straight (minus nap) is so exhausting without TV as an option LOL. There is a lot of flooding, damage, and trees in people's houses. We had water pouring in through one of our windows but were able to control it with every.single.towel that we own. It's going to be at least 5 loads of laundry tonight and tomorrow to wash everything! It looks like our roof is a little damaged but I am glad we made it through ok safe and sound. A lot of other houses around us look worse than what we have. It was so scary at some points we could feel the whole house shaking. Thank goodness Irene lost strength before it hit or we would have been in a worse situation.
Glad your appt went well. Hope your work situation gets better and the depression is something that is manageable. ((HUGS)) Stay safe!
