Wow time is ticking down now really fast.
I did have a good day. I went to the doctors (ill cover that in a minute) and then I went to Panera bread with my counselor from the agency. It was wonderful to sit and talk to an adult without my kids around. She had her sweet little girl there but I was not responsible for her so it was no problem for me. I had a delicious bowl of cheese and broccoli soup with some unsweetened iced tea. So yummy.
My doctors appointment went OK. There are a few concerns. My EKG that I had done in the hospital the other day (did I blog about that?) came back a bit abnormal. At first they thought that my heart problems were due to anxiety but after further testing it might be a cardiac problem. This does not concern me TO much because it does run in my family and is easily managed; however, I am pregnant (ha ha obviously) and so the baby is the main concern. So the heart thing will be looked at by a cardiologist (as soon as I make an appointment.) :)
The other concern is that I am now spilling protein in my urine (1+ percentage). From what I understand, my 1+ is not enough to be diagnosed as preeclampsic but it is enough to be put through more testing. SOOOO, the rest of the week will involve me going to the lab to get some tests done. Ill let you all know about that. Boring I know.
Baby boy is doing fine. He likes to fall asleep right when I get into the doctors office (he is kicking like crazy in the waiting room) which is not a great thing because he has all these tests he has to pass and when he isn't up and moving around, they beat on my stomach with metal kitchen spoons. Yep, you heard that right people, kitchen spoons. It is meant to see how his heart rate responds to stimulation. So much fun right? LOL
So, all in all it was a good day, but it does show me that time is short, and this is the time in my pregnancy that things start going south. My body does really good until the end, and then it starts pooping out on me. :(
Ill have to talk Rebekah in to glamming up another belly photo so that I can post it here. I just don't look good until she does her special things to it. So what do you think Rebekah? Can you glam up that last one for me?
