I am growing..but were is it going?
Today at 24 weeks I am very very visibly pregnant, no mistaking it anymore, however-somehow at my prenatal today I found out I have lost weight this past month. Doctors were not hugely concerned but kept asking me if I was eating enough ect..I assured them I am eating tons, I ate so much while I was in Toronto I almost burst. I swear I ate half my body weight in Sushi alone. The only thing I can think of is that I am still nauseous and vomitting alot, at least 3x a week usually, but it’s not typically a whole meal, just a mouthful (yum!). I have to be very careful how much I eat cause my stomach can’t handle it, however, I am eating a plenty and have no idea how I can possibly have lost weight. At 24 weeks I am just around the 5lbs gain point and it has to be all belly cause the belly is large. I guess so long as baby continue’s to grow they won’t panic, she is at the small end (30th percentile) but growing consistantly and getting stronger all the time.
Otherwise all was fine. Don’t see them again for a month now and next Ultrasound is scheduled for the end of November. I imagine around that time we will begin with the Biophysical Profiles since I will be into my third trimester.
Next week is the Glucose Tolerance Test. Blah! I had it at 30 weeks with Evan so not sure why it’s so early this time. Anyhow, I passed this test with flying colours with Evan, but the Trutol made me feel sick and made me dizzy, which is why I tripped and fell and tore the ligaments in my foot, spending 3 weeks on crutches while pregnant with Evan. Not pleasant memories. Anyhow, here’s hoping I pass easily this time as well and don’t fall :).
Overall at this stage, this pregnancy has been easier then Evan’s was, his wasn’t bad, so this one is really good. I have almost no heartburn and when I do get it, 1 single rolaid will clear it right up. I had the brutulest heartburn with Evan, I took Zantac from months 6-9 just to eat and sleep normally. I also have no swelling of the extremities yet at all and my hands and ankles were getting puffy already at this stage last time.
So yes, all is well in baby land.
I am recovering from a blah! headcold and life has been so crazy busy that I was like a zombie, so today I took a sick day and come home for the hospital around 11am and slept until 3pm, ahh, lovely, lovely much needed sleep. I feel much better. Now if only my sinuses would clear up.
Ok a belly shot. Still dosen’t look as big as I feel.
