So, this morning, Jacob fought going to school. I didn't sleep well last night, of course. Yesterday had some dehydration contractions and...
This AM I was supposed to go drink my GTT drink and then have my blood drawn an hour later. My plan was to take Jacob to school, then pick up my GTT drink then take it and Daniel to my mom's house for a little visiting while I waited the hour. But since Jacob fought going to school, I didn't get to the Dr's until 8:30 and they didn't call me back until 8:50 and my Dad had pre-op (getting a new knee) at 10, so I just hung out at the dr's office with Daniel for the hour.
Then this afternoon I was supposed to go back for my check up appointment. 23 weeks tomorrow.
In between appointments I came home to eat (needed to eat something after that test) and I took Daniel out to the back yard to play, only to find out it was flooded (there's an irrigation ditch behind our yard and the flooding is a different story) and we came right back in.
I start to fall asleep on my couch when it's time to leave for my after noon appointment. So I get to the appointment and Daniel wants to get out of the stroller and play again since he was able to do that this morning for a full hour. I knew we wouldn't be in the waiting room long as we were the first after lunch appointment, so instead I get to hear him throw a fit.
We go back and they check my urine, clean. I can't believe I've gone this long without a UTI!!! :eek: BP and pulse both fine.
Baby refused to cooperate for the heart rate check again. Made the doctor go almost crazy with moving around. Finally did get a rate of somewhere in the 150's, I can't remember exactly. She confirmed that she doesn't know the gender
Everything looked great. Then............
since Jacob was at the neighbor's house (wasn't sure I'd make it back before the bus) Daniel and I went to pick him up. We walked, cause it's only half a block. Jacob had a note home from his teacher on his poor actions day so he didn't get to stay and play and we had to leave right away. This made Daniel sad as he wanted to stay and play too. In attempting to cheer Daniel up, I start kinda running with him while holding his hand. He trips... I try to keep him from hitting his face on the chip seal road we live on. I succeed and he goes down softly. Then I start going down and had to avoid stomping on his head, but I could not recover. My knee hit first, then my chin and quickly followed by my nose. I'm bleeding bad from my nose and I sat up crying and yelled to Jacob to "go get her mom" names were not forthcoming at the time.
It took about 30 minutes to get my nose to stop bleeding. Got a decent gash in the palm of my hand (tried to keep my own face from hitting ground) and a bruise on my chin and a nice knot on my knee. My nose does not appear to be broken (now that the swelling has gone down it's actually kind of obvious no damage was really done). I posted pics on FB if you're interested.
I'm laughing about what I must have looked like, but I'm in pain.
I did call my doc to see if she wanted me to come in and be checked. I'm pretty sure I was able to keep from hurting the belly, but the slow motion kinda happened quickly (if you know what I mean). Anyway, they said unless I start cramping, contracting or bleeding vaginally that I didn't need to come in unless I wanted to, so I chose not to go in. I did, however, go to my family chiropractor (mom works for him) and had him check me over for whiplash and crack my back into proper alignment just to be safe.
Okay, so the boys are in bed and asleep now, my husband's coat has been put in the dryer (I was waiting on that) and I'm starting to get a head ache. Time for bed. :sleep:
Hope everyone else's day was better than mine.
Oh, and I don't know yet if I passed or failed the GTT. I'll update if I failed. :rolleyes: Oh, and I'm up 8 pounds in the last 4 weeks :eek: I'm at 15lbs and we still haven't hit the biggest gain point yet. Doc told me to try and slow down the weight gain, make sure I'm keeping active so I don't have to worry about what can come with the high weight gain.
