New this week: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from our baby's hands and feet, his/her eyelids practically cover his/her eyes, breathing tubes extend from his/her throat to the branches of its developing lungs, and the "tail" is just about gone. In the brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. Our baby is about the size of a kidney bean this week.
This past week was not good for me at all! I vomited at least once a day and Sunday was really bad as I couldn't keep anything down! I bought Preggie Pops and Gingerale and nothing has been helping! I'm only talking my nausea prescription when I have to as my insurance only covered 12 pills for 30 days.
Starting Weight: 163 lbs.
Last Week: 162 lbs.
This Week: 158.8 lbs.
I lost weight this week I'm sure due to all my vomiting! I'm hoping that this next week I can actually keep my food down.
First Doctor's Visit
We had our first visit with the doctor yesterday and it went really good. We got to hear the heartbeat and it is really strong at 167! Everyone's been telling me that means its a girl so we will see. My doctor said I need to be taking my nausea medicine every 8 hours so she sent a different prescription and hopefully my insurance will pay for all the pills! I feel a little better today taking my Zofran twice yesterday and this morning so far.
I really like my doctor. She said she doesn't like surprises so we will be having more ultrasounds than normal and even if shes not on call when the baby is coming as long as she isn't out of town she will be there to deliver. I of course had to get blood work and a urinalysis done and waiting to get the results back from those.
We have another appointment in 2 weeks. Something funny happened while we were in the room getting to hear the heartbeat. Mr. Lopez started feeling sick. He said he got hot then cold and felt like he was gonna vomit! I couldn't stop laughing. He said he thinks it just became really real right then. If he was the one throwing up the past week he would know it was really real already LOL
Sorry I haven't been posting a lot. Besides feeling bad and SUPER busy at work I just haven't had the time. I promise as soon as I get through this trimester and get done with this stuff at work I will be back to posting regularly. Thanks for all the sweet comments!
