So, I was at work Thursday and started bleeding again. I stayed and finished my syllabus for the summer session and got it to the print shop so it'll be done on Monday and I left. By the time I got home, I was bleeding a lot more and it was bright red.I was mildly cramping too, so I called the doctor. The nurse told me just lie down, but don't go to the ER because they can't do anything. Either I'll m/c or I won't. So along comes evening and I'm bleeding and cramping more, so I say screw it, I am going to the ER because I need to know what is going on in there. So, surprise surprise, there's no one at the ER around dinner time and I get right in. YAY! The staff was wonderful and the doc ordered an u/s right away, which is what I wanted. They found a heartbeat again and the doctor said everything looks good, just go home and rest.
I'm trying not to be concerned, but it's hard. They said that the baby looks fine, but the doc said that it measured 7w 1day when it should have been 7w 4d. DH keeps telling me not to obsess, but it's hard. My babies always measure ahead, so I'm stuck worrying if something is wrong with this LO.
Don't obsess Bobbie, Don't obsess. Don't obsess! Ok, going to go lie down and put my feet up. My sis and I went to scrapbooking this morning and me is tie-ERD. LOL!
The only thing I know that you might be able to do is to ask them to check your progesterone levels. Some docs think the progesterone therapy is a good thing and can only help, and some don't. People are increasing using it though.
Kati, they always say that my progesterone looks fine. It's such a mystery! LOL!
Sam has been crawling for a four or five days now. It is so dang cute! He seems a lot happier now that he can just go get whatever he wants.
Nate's ears are healing well. The surgery went fabulously and we'll see the ENT in another 5 weeks so he can look at things and make sure everything is good.
#3 is being a PITA already. I went a few days with no bleeding and then it came back yesterday. *SIGH* It seems to be gone this morning though.
My m/s hits in the afternoon. I've been trying hard not to take my Zofran since the side effects are not pleasant, but I had to take a half a pill two days in a row a few days ago. Let me tell you, I paid dearly for that decision. FOUR days! I went FOUR days without using the can. I found myself getting jealous at everyone I came in contact with thinking, "B.itch! I bet SHE took a dump this morning! She is just way too happy."
Oh thank you thank you Kati! Those worked this morning! I was, um, quite "successful" and now my tummy feels better.
I'm so tired. Oh this progesterone is making me tired. Or maybe I'm tired because I kept waking up last night feeling very ill.
It's smoggy here today. Smog is so yucky. I feel bad for keeping my kids in this environment. I can't wait for the day we pack up the U-haul and move to Oregon. *SIGH* At least 2 more years.
I got my eyebrows and lip waxed today. Finally. I was becoming a circus freak with my mustache. It was a guy who did it. Too funny! I'm glad I didn't need a bikini wax too! I'm all for women's lib and equality and what-not, but I draw the line at men giving bikini waxes. No thank you.
Heartburn. Oh the heartburn.
Did I mention I'm tired? I need a nap. I don't know how I'm going to survive the next 5 weeks at work. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Feeling better today! I came home from work and had a 2 hour nap, then I got up and played with Sam for an hour. His 5th little tooth is bugging him. It keeps pushing out and then going back up. I think it's driving him nuts.
I ate cinnamon rolls and spaghetti for dinner. Gosh, I must be pregnant! Quick dear, go get me a test! LOL!
I had a student, a slightly strange student, tell me that she "knows" that I'm having a girl this time. She announced it to the class in a bit of a creepy tone and the rest of the class just looked at her like she had a 3rd eye. It was bizarre. I came home and told DH that it must be a girl if the crazy student thinks so. Crazy people "know" things. LOL!
I feel icky. I feel barfy and headache-y every afternoon. I feel really good in the mornings and then BAM, noon hits and I want to die. DH keeps asking me why I don't take some Zofran. Well, as opposed to my first two pregnancies, this time around I think morning sickness is the lesser of the two evils. I can either feel like *** half the day, but be "regular" or I can take Zofran and be without m/s, but not crap but every two weeks, which is more painful than 1000 paper cuts with tabasco sauce poured into them.
I have lots of work to do. I'm teaching this summer course and I can barely keep up. Sooooo sleepy. I have wonderful students though. I'm really enjoying them.
I've really started looking old this year. I've just noticed it. A bit depressing. Maybe it's a year without sleep that did it. I'm fat already too. My size 10 pants are getting too tight on me. *SIGH* I can't help it though. To keep from barfing, I have to constantly shove food in my face. And I can't get on the treadmill because I keep bleeding on and off and have to rest when I'm not at work.
Sam still hasn't cut that 6th tooth. It's just sitting there in his gums, waiting for who knows what. He's such a happy baby. He makes me happy just to look at him.
I gave Nate a haircut today. He hates having his haircut, but he was a trooper. It looks so good on him. After he showered all of that hair off, we sat and drew pictures. He got all excited because I drew him a pirate ship with pirates, a captain with a sword, and a monster guarding a treasure chest on an island, but then he told me that I'm not very good at drawing. LOL LOL LOL!
12 weeks. Feeling pretty good, just tired. Sooooooo very tired. Most days I have mild nausea and headache in the afternoon, but I feel good most mornings. That's good because I work in the mornings now.
DH and I went to meet the new doula yesterday. OMG, I love her. I'm so confident that I'll have a natural birth this time around. I'm actually excited about it. I have to dig out my hypnobabies stuff and start practicing NOW. After that, I dropped DH off at home and went to the OB. It was a quick visit. He found baby on the doppler right away and said the heartbeat was 170. He said, "That's high. NORMAL, but on the high side." I said, "Oh, what's the old wives' tale for that?" He didn't miss a beat and said, "Girl!" I laughed and told him that that would make DH happy. I went home and told DH this and he got all happy.
Sam has been standing up like crazy. He's so cute. He's been a bit of a pill lately though because he's had a cold.
Nate is getting excited about going to school in the fall. He has a couple of friends at his daycare who are 6 years old and he wants to go with them every day. I'm anxious to learn who his Kindy teacher will be. I hope she is nice.
2 more weeks of summer school. I'm so tired. so so tired. I have to start lecturing at 7:35. OMG, that is way too early. My students are awesome, but they're starting to feel the exhaustion too. I'm looking forward to our trip to Canada. So excited!
