Week 15: Goodbye Second Trimester
Friday, April 15, 2011
So I thought the second trimester was supposed to be the honeymoon stage of pregnancy. Well I never saw it. I was still nauseous through out most of it. My second trimester starting out great. I was less sick and started to feel really good. Then the sickness started just at night time then went to all day and the heartburn and the sleepless nights. It's taken me this long to figure out that it's sugar. Sugar is what is making me still feel sick. So I've swore it off including my Fiber One Bars. They have been traded in for chips and crackers.
As for the weight gain, I'm 26 weeks and 5 days today and I'm up by my scale at home at total of 22.6lbs. So I don't think that I'll stick to my 25lbs weight gain for the total pregnancy but I'm just about certain that I will gain less than the 42lbs I did with baby#1. I'm not sure how because I've been nothing by starving just about 24/7 and it seems like nothing I eat takes the hunger pangs away. Any suggestions?
Well hitting the gym is getting harder. I only made it to the gym once this week so far and then I only did 1/2 of the step class. Then on Wednesday my hips hurt so bad that I could barely walk so the gym was out of the question. Ugh, it's just that I didn't have these aches and pains with baby#1 and it's making me question if I'm going through these pains because of the accident. I'm hoping to make it to the gym Saturday morning but we will see. I also noticed that sometimes I get pain when my little guy moves. It's not that he is up in my ribs but that his rolling around causes my belly to really hurt. This also didn't happen with baby#1. Has only one else had this? I have my 28 week appt next week and I have a ton of questions for them. I need to know if any of this is normal or the result of the accident so I can tell the insurance agent about my pain and suffering so we can work out a payment deal. Ugh I just wish I didn't have to worry about any of that.
There is a lot of stuff I need to do around the house to get ready for baby. I was sidetracked because of the accident but now I have to get back on the ball. Oh I went to the dermatologist yesterday for Lillian and they said that they are just about certain that she has eczema. So they gave her a topical steroid ointment to use twice a day for 2 weeks. We have a follow up in 1 week to see how things are going. So thanks to a sparkfriend, I've been giving a lot of information that I can do to help her condition get better. So if anyone else has dealt with this, please offer any advice that you have.
until next week. Hopefully by then I'll have my car and I can post photos of it.
