On the mend
Wednesday, May 21, 2014
Ralph is doing much better. Later that day after I wrote, he got nuts and was dieing for a walk. It's like he suddenly had all this built up energy to drive me nuts with worry. Finally at 8 pm I gave in and walked him and finally settled down. Patsy went in for her teeth cleaning yesterday. So now everyone is taken care of for awhile.
I had a doppler appointment Monday. My doctor intially couldn't find a heartbeat. Then she said kept finding it and then losing it. I must have looked scared. I am so stupid I started reading these baby blogs where women go in and pregnancy is fine then all the sudden no heartbeat. She had me sit in the hall and wait for an ultrasound machine to open up. While sitting there I could hear her using the doppler machine on other woman and the babies heartbeats were so loud, you could hear them thru the shut door. So I went in for ultrasound and all was fine, heartbeat was 153. Plus I got a new picture and we have an appointment for the gender reveal on 6/30.
I looked at the two ultrasounds next to eachother and the baby is twice as big as a month ago. Tomorrow marks week 15, the size of an apple and if u shine a light at the woman's stomach at this week the baby will turn away from the light.
I finally lifted yesterday and hit water aerobics! Last week I missed both when I had my flat tire. It's kind of a struggle on Tuesday and Thursdays. I get off work at 5 and gotta run home feed dogs get them outside, get dressed and then be at the gym by 5:25. But it is doable and worth doing. Just takes some preplanning. Like setting my clothes out close by ahead of time. Making sure I have a snack while driving. Where there is a will there is a way. I made it to Old Skool WerQ this morning. It's a good week, lots of new songs in old skool and regular werq.
Eating has been ugly, freaking cake at work, you are ruining my efforts! Today I will be a good girl!
