34 Week checkup

I had my 34 week checkup yesterday. It didn't go so well as I have lost another 5lbs. My midwife says my uterus is still growing but in all honesty the entire team knows it should have grown more in the past 2 weeks than it did.

I struggled with Anorexia in high school and struggled with food aversion during my entire first pregnancy. We want a healthy and strong baby boy. I don't want to hurt him. So now they've got me on a protein shake that I've got to drink 2-3x a day.
So far so good. I've done what I need to do. Eating more actually makes me hungrier throughout the day so I'm starting to eat more over all. And today is only day 2

Other than that. My blood pressure is still good and low. My uterus did grow so there's no need to be extremely concerned. Aiden's heart rate was still in the 140s with fluctuations and so he's doing well. He's head down, back out...ready for launch lol. Still 6 more weeks until our due date!

How are all of you ladies doing?

hey! i have lost 10lbs in total in the past 2 weeks that I have went to the doctor. I go back tomorrow and see if I have lost anymore. My doctor wasn't concerned she said it may be my diabetic medicine causing me to loose. last Tuesday my blood pressure was high and i was having contractions she sent me to labor and delivery to be mointered and my blood pressure was great the whole time i was there and my contractions stopped. So they sent me home on strict bed rest. I could only go from the couch, to the recliner or bed and bathroom. I'm ready to go back. I am hoping she will induce me next week b/c I have a toothache and I can't get it looked at until I have the baby b/c the dentist wants to do a xray to see whats going on and if they can fix it or what will have to be done to it. Camden is still measuring ahead he is estimated to weigh over 7lbs now!

I had a bug or something over the weekend. I spent 3 days vomiting and by the 3rd day I was vomiting blood. Had to go to the ER to get some fluids and anti-nausea pills so I could keep down water. Feeling much better now

I'm sorry you've been sick. That's so lousy to have this late in your pregnancy! Hope you are feeling better now.
