so i had another appointment this morning. i was a little upset because i guess i have lost a pound and a half, but doc said not to worry about it b/c it wasn't a significant amount & we are doing so many ultrasounds that we will find out if there are any problems occuring. my next u/s is friday, may 16 (my 26th birthday).
we listened to her heartbeat & it still sounds great- i swear it sounds louder every time i hear it!
i got a rope burn from my dog's lead rope the other day & i showed it to the doctor b/c i knew it was infected, so he put me on antibiotics for the next ten days.
he also told me that around 28 weeks or shortly after (only 2 & 1/2 weeks away) that i will start having weekly non-stress tests to check on this little girl since i am high-risk for iugr, preterm labor & b/c of the blood thinners i am on. i am going to have so many appointments, even more than i already have.
we will continue the u/s every 4 weeks, and will increase that to every two weeks if any problems arise.
so i am still scared about things, but i love that my doctor is so thourough & is going to monitor me and baby so closely. just praying that she has grown well when we see her at our u/s next week.
i just got done eating a double chocolate muffin! it had 450 calories! but it was labeled as a muffin so ifelt like i could pretend there was a little something nutrious in it, hehe. i guess i need to get one of those a day or something.
it was so good- light, fluffy & chocolatey, mmmmmmmmmmmm.
i am really going to keep working on it. and justin has been getting onto me to make sure i have been eating enough and i know he will patrol me even more now that he knows that i lost weight. nothing like someone trying to shove food at you! at least he will fix me supper even more often than he already does!
