I told you on Sunday about how I went to the ER that morning with some bleeding. I was to call Dr Monty on Monday to make a follow up appointment for Tuesday. Well, yesterday morning I woke up with bleeding again! When I called Dr Monty and told him I was bleeding again he had me come right in. He did an U/s and Roo and Squirt look fine. He went over all the results from the hospital and like the ER Dr said, they couldn't find any reason for the bleeding. Dr Monty decided I should go on a form of modified bed rest at least until I see him next week and then he will reevaluate. My restrictions are, no sex :( , no exercise, only very light lifting, and lots of rest. I am only allowed to do small loads of laundry and even that he wants me to limit my walking up and down my basement stairs. I was suppose to have a dental cleaning today, but he had me postpone it till things calm down. I am allowed to leave the house, but I need to take it easy.
He also put me back on prometrium pills. My RE took me off of them at 8 weeks when everything looked fine. Dr Monty prescribed progesterone in oil shots once a week that I will start as soon as everything is cleared with my insurance. I figured that we would be taught and my Hubby would give me the shot, but apparently Dr Monty uses a nurse group who will come give me the shot once a week! So, hopefully my insurance will cover the PIO since it should help better than the pills.
Due date: According to my ovulation day my due date is April 16, 2013.
How far along?: 14 weeks
Total weight loss/gain:
The day before the IUI I was 206. This morning I was 203.6. Well, I didn't gain, but I didn't lose. I am eating as much as I can all day and I haven't done any exercise in a couple weeks. I guess these babies are just sucking every bit of nutrition out of me since they are growing nicely!
What's going on with the babies?:Roo and Squirt are doing fine, but these little stinkers are causing trouble! LOL! Scaring me half to death with the bleeding! I know it's probably just my body doing it, but it is cute to call them little trouble makers. Suzy said it perfectly on twitter, "So glad the babies are okay! They are SO grounded though." I told her I sent them to their rooms and they are not to come out till April! Lets hope they listen to me
Squirt and Roo should be about 2.4 inches (6.1cm). Their eyes and ears have reached their final positions and are more clearly defined. The first little hairs are starting to grow on their bodies. They can now swallow amniotic fluid and even though the placenta is doing the work of their kidneys, their bladder does fill and they can empty it! My children are peeing in me LOL!
What's going on with my body?: Even though I was bleeding, my body seems to be doing it's best to keep these babies in there and growing. It was scary, but I have to trust my body! It has gotten these babies to 14 weeks and it can get them to full term and into my arms.
Heartburn has picked up a bit. I have been trying to watch what I eat to try and keep it away, but I still have it and have been popping tums a little more. I am hungry all the time now! I eat all day and I am enjoying it so much! Food is so good!
What does the belly look like?: I know my belly is getting bigger, I just can't really see it yet. Maybe it's because I see it every day. I can definitely feel a belly in there. Feels like I have a heavy ball in there. I will post a pic later today as soon as the Hubby comes home and can take a pic of me.
Maternity clothes: I bought maternity pants and OMG they are so comfy!!! I took a lot of your advice and went to motherhood maternity. I grabbed my size in the full panel plus and they fit perfectly with room to grow! My MIL took me and insisted on buying them for me. She is so sweet and make me get 2 pairs LOL! I also ordered a maternity shirt online. It's not a regular shirt, it's actually my Halloween costume. I will post about that with pics when we get closer to Halloween.
Movement: I have had so much gas this past week, so if there was any movement I couldn't feel it. I hope I start feeling some real movements soon. I really can't wait!!
Sleep: I got a snoogle body pillow this week! Thank you sweetie! You know who you are! This thing is amazing! It cradles my body and supports my knees and hips all night. I had just started to get that sore, stiff feeling in my hips the week before and this has relieved it completely! I highly recommend a body pillow!
Cravings/aversions: I had a tuna salad sandwich the other day and now that is all I can think about!
Sex of the babies: We decided we won't be finding out the sexes. Thank you for all the ideas for our babies' blankets! I still haven't made a decision on what I am going to make, but I know whatever I do make will be perfect for them and they will love it.
Names: I am having a blast figuring out names for our little ones! I still haven't gotten the name book from my cousin so as soon as I do we will really start to sit down and figure it out. We have time.
What I miss: I am going to miss being able to do everything I'm not allowed to while taking it easy. I will miss it, but will do anything I need to for these babies!
What I am looking forward to:
I am looking forward to really feeling movement! Come on babies! I want to feel you in there!
Mood and emotions: This week has been an emotional roller coaster with the bleeding. Overall I have been feeling good about everything. I have also been emotional about our Anniversary coming up. I know it's not about the presents, but my Hubby loves to buy me things and always has amazing ideas for me. For me, every year gets harder and harder to find the perfect gift for him. My ideas just don't seem good enough. We will be spending a nice night together so I will just have to focus on that.
Milestones: I can't think of any milestones I have hit.
Medical concerns: All the stuff I have been talking about over the past few days. The bleeding and stuff.
Sex?: Well, now that I have the restrictions, sex is going from sometimes to never. :( I hope this isn't it for the rest of the pregnancy! I will do anything for these babies, but it would be nice to be intimate with my Hubby.
Best moment of the week: Finding out that my babies were safe and sound in there.
Daddy is relieved. He was so worried about the 3 of us through all this. He has been very attentive and making sure we are alright.
Some funny/cute things Hubby has said (at least I think they are): The Hubby has been cracking lots of jokes about how the babies are just like him. Stubborn! LOL! They never want to cooperate when the techs need to take measurements.
Nursery: I have been starting to think about how I want to decorate the nursery. It doesn't seem real. I am actually going to decorate a nursery!
