Week 19: Just chugging along
Friday, May 13, 2011
So my at home scale says I'm up 25lbs. I'm not mad at it as I know that it could be much much worse. It's just that I wanted to only gain 25lbs but I'm confident that I will lose all of this baby weight within the first year postpartum. Hey I did it with baby#1 by 10 months so I know it's doable.
I went for an ultrasound this morning. It was the check on the baby's kidneys and growth and weight. Of course, the tech said nothing and the radiologist didn't come in to talk to me. All she said was that the report will be written up and my OB will have it by 24hrs. So I won't know anything until my appt next Thursday but I'm confident that everything is just fine. I'm really more interested in his growth and weight. How big is that little or should I say big boy going to be? I need to prepare myself mentally for his birth.
I have to say that this u/s was quite a bit different from the rest of them and I've had 5 before this one. The tech had my lying flat on the bed and I was feeling pain in my back but then I started feeling nauseous and dizzy and I got warm all over. I told her that I was going to throw-up so she had my lay on my side. She continued to take measurements with me that way. Once I felt better, she lifted up the head part of the bed but that didn't help and I had that feeling like 3 more times. I've never had that happen before. I really really thought that I needed a trash can and that I was going to pass out. So the ultrasound took a bit longer than normal. After it was all over and I sat up on the bed for a while, I felt just fine.
So this weekend is my last weekend going back home until after the baby comes. I think this will be my longest period of a non-visit. Basically all summer long. I plan on having a Meet the Baby party in mid-Sept back home. I think is easier than me traveling to a lot of different houses with the baby.
Finally a short blog
. I hope to be back at hitting the gym next week. I miss it.
