I have the I'm expecting app and it's pretty nice.
LOL they were pretty tasty!
It was a mini date night, we couldn't figure out what we wanted to do after dinner... we've been sitting at home watching TV.
OH is eating ice cream, I may join him.
My dog is sick, poor guy. He has kennel cough... don't know if he picked it up around here at the apartments or if I brought it home on my shoes from work. Started in the middle of the night last night, sounds so painful. Most of the time we treat them with antibiotics and a narcotic cough syrup... typically they don't need the antibiotics. I started my guy on some antibiotics in hopes of making him more comfortable, but if it's a viral strain he's going to have to push through it. That and some Delsym cough syrup at the right dose. Lame. Hopefully he'll sleep some more tonight.
Does anyone take extra iron? I am thinking about it to see if it helps with my energy but other people are telling me not to unless a Dr tells me to. I don't see what the issue with it would be though.
I just had my blood drawn again yesterday. Another 3 hour GTT (looks like I passed except for a slightly elevated fasting)... funny, the one morning I have to get my blood drawn my levels are up a little elevated. Oh well. Everything else was way under what they wanted. They also drew a CBC, my levels are down SLIGHTLY but still well into the "normal" ranges... I see my doctor on Wednesday so we'll see what she says. They also did another creatinine level.
It was a rough morning for me yesterday... I smashed my finger pretty good in the closet door, it still looked like a blueberry this morning but I've been able to get some of the swelling down. Then I had my 3hr GTT, usually not too bad, the first 3 draws were easy, then I got someone who barely spoke english and apparently couldn't count. After not listening to me and sticking me 3 times then saying "I stick you 2 times, now someone else try" I wasn't amused. She fished around like crazy in there, and in one of the spots you can see that she was NOWHERE near a vein. WTH. I don't mind blood draws but near the end of it I was fasting nearly 16 hours, was starving, had no energy and was completely frustrated. I left with a few tears. LOL makes me sound like a big baby, it's the hormones. The rest of the day I was just exhausted. The guy who ended up taking my blood got it from a super deep vein in my forearm. I wasn't too sure about it at first, those veins usually blow when they try to put IV's in them. He put a heat pack on it first to make the veins stand up for him. It worked.
I've noticed that my level of patience is taking a turn for the worst. Everything and everyone is ANNOYING. Majorly. More so at work and then I bring that bad energy home. LOL. Can't help it.
Had a scare today... was in the birthing center for 6 hours with an IV after I ended up with regular contractions every 5 minutes... luckily I thought I was having a bladder infection so I called my Dr's office and they wanted to rule out preterm labor so I went into the hospital instead... turns out I was having contractions and didn't know that's what they were... there is no explanation for them other than its probably partially stress related and partially dehydration. Pretty scary experience though. I have to take at least the rest of the week off work now.
I came down with a horrible stomach flu the day after my insurance ran out. luckily it was only twoish days, but I'm still not feeling 100%. It was like morning sickness all over again +code brown. Ugh.
KE- I would not be happy with someone digging around for a vein. Not cool. I'm glad your tests came out well.
Kendra- very scary to have early contractions. Rest up and take care!
AFM- did any of you loose weight in your first trimester due to morning sickness? I've lost nearly 10lbs now and at 200lbs I certainly have extra to spare I am just worried should I call the doctor? Has anyone had experience with this?
