A Day In The Life Of The Pregnant Chick

Saturday, October 18, 2008

As I'm sure you have noticed, the title of my blogs has changed slightly, and as promised I have included the picture of my first ultrasound. So onto the blog. I went to my doctor's appointment on the 14th and was told that I was down another pound...go on and cheer, it's a good thing. I was also informed that my blood pressure was looking good again (it was high, for me, for some reason at my last appointment), and everything else is moving along nicely...even though I did get sick. I went ahead and asked my doctor about calories, just because I'm pregnant is no excuse to abandon everything I've worked so hard to achieve. I was all geared up to hear her say "stay around 2500" since that is what BabyFit recommended...yea she didn't say that, she told me instead to eat around 1700, and to walk if I can. Before jaws hit the floor, allow me to explain what all that means. Back in 2006 when I was pregnant with my son Campbell, I started having pain in my legs and back, but we couldn't figure out why, it got to be so bad that I was put on bedrest for fear that I would fall and hurt myself or the baby. Back in March of this year, I was finally diagnosed with why I had pain, lower sensory peripheral neuropothy...don't know what that means? Don't feel bad I didn't either, all it means is, the nerves in my legs are shot and will never heal, so I have limited movement, hense the "walk when I can" So there ya have it, my recent doctor's appointment, and an ultrasound picture, doesn't get much better than that does it? Just kidding. To end this, I will let all of you know that as of this blog entry, I am now 11 weeks, 3 days along and still due on May 7th 2009.

    How wondeful!! Thanks for sharing the picture. When I got pregnant with my third I was at the weight I was when I was full term with my second. I just freaked out. So I ate healthly - exercised (just walking) throughout my third pregnancy and gained only 12 pounds. Jacob came - being the biggest of my 3 at 8 lbs 8 ounces. I DID NOT diet - but decided I would not "eat for two" and when I did eat I made healthy choices. I felt great and had a very healthy baby.

    Keep healthy - and REST - you will (and do) have your hands full!
