I’m a little tardy with this post – we had a rough week. From Monday through Wednesday, Josh was very ill with a stomach virus. Then, on Thursday I got it. It was horrible. With that said, I did not get around to taking a belly shot this week :(
How am I feeling? I am feeling good now, but that wasn’t the case yesterday. Since I got so dehydrated from being sick, I went to the hospital to get some IV fluids.
I was at the hospital for about 2 or 3 hours. I got 2 bags of fluid and some Zofran for my nausea. It worked so well! I am so grateful for my parents who graciously took care of me all day too. They made being sick bearable.
Doctor’s Appointment? Yes, I had two appointments this week. My routine OB check up was Wednesday and my OB said to me, “Congratulations, you are having a normal pregnancy!” Those are great words to hear!! It’s all I ever wanted! :)
Thursday was my bi-weekly Peri appointment. My parents came with me this time, and it was their first glimpse at little Taylor.
Weight Gain? As of Wednesday, I had gained 12 hefty pounds. (I think 6 of the pounds are in my boobs alone! They are out of control!!) I asked my doctor about my weight gain, and she said it was perfect. She said to continue gaining about a pound a week.
As of today, I am down 3 pounds from being so sick. I’m sure I’ll gain it back soon though… My appetite is coming back!
Baby Preparation? Yes! I just needed a little nudge and a 20% off coupon in the mail was all it took, so the bedding is now ordered! Once I receive that, I will finalize the wall color and paint the nursery!
Also… a date has been set for my Baby Shower! So exciting!!
I’ll leave you with a poem that was painted on a ceiling tile at my doctor’s office:
When you were born,
and the world rejoiced.
Live your life,
so that when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice.
