I like being a lemon.. but my stomach is total bloat and huge.. and getting harder by the day. I look 6 months in certain clothes and this is my first baby!!!
At least I can relax my belly and let it all out! ha ha
Babinogi, i've joined the NCT as we are not entitled to antenatal classes at our hospital as it's out of area. We are doing their classes instead and paying for them. I've heard good things about the NCT sales but don't know any more than that.
We had our 12w+5 scan today and both twins are doing well. They are measuring 66 and 64mm and are right on schedule for their age
We've booked a scan for the gender at 17 weeks as our hospital won't tell you.
Thought I'd best pop in and let you know how I'm doing - which is not very well
I seem to have/have had a combination of things that have been conspiring to make me utterly miserable.
Easter Sunday I was worried about my temps (102F) so I went to the walk-in clinic, who sent me to the hospital. I thought I had a chest infection, they thought it wasn't that and found I had a bladder infection. So they gave me anti-biotics and sent me home
All last week I was grim - antis finally started to tackle my temps, but my chest is horrid - I've coughed so much that I've pulled every muscle I have, and it's all so very sore.
The coughing has also been making me very sick - to the point of dehydration and so on Monday I ended up back in hospital with keytones in my urine.
The lovely Dr I saw gave me some anti-sickness tabs and some Ranitidine to stop the heartburn, to try and help me keep some water down.
But I have been so worried about Eenie - I know high temps are very bad for small babies and I've been stressing so much about what might be going on in there.
When I told the lovely Dr at the hospital, she brought us downstairs with her after we'd finished and even though she had finished her shift, took us to one of the ultrasound rooms for a sneaky scan ... where we heard Eenie's heartbeat good and strong. Can't tell you how relieved we both are
So, I'm resting up at home, trying to shake off the last of the chest infection - temps are still going up to 100F but no higher, so I'm not worried about that.... and it appears that my asthma is back, which I last had 18 years ago!
So that's me and my tale of woe (when the GP asked me what was wrong on Monday I replied 'I'm a small heap of misery ) I'm absolutely shattered and sleeping up to 20 hours a day - but I think the new meds are kicking in and I'm starting to be able to keep things down
Wow Urchin you have been through the wars. I hope that the anti bs are doing their thing now and you start to feel a bit better soon. Doesn't sound good at all but nice that you had a little peek at Eenie and all is well.
