Good Morning All! I'M BAAAACK!
I had between Christmas and Jan 9 off work and since my home computer is driving me nuts (I need to get it fixed) I just haven't been online. Your nurseries look AWESOME. I love the green, blue and colourful square walls! Interesting that all of us have anterior placentas and I thought they were supposed to be relatively uncommon!
MS is still coming and going. I haven't thrown up since Jan 2, but still get nauseous.
As far as diet goes - mine was pretty ordinary for a while there - I started out good, lost it in the middle when the MS was bad and back on track again now. Breakfast is usually 2 slices of wholegrain toast and maybe an omega 3 enriched boiled egg. Morning tea is a muesli bar, fruit bar or piece of fruit. Lunch has been raspberries, blackberries and strawberries with stewed peaches or apricots. More fruit and maybe another egg for afternoon tea. Dinner is whatever - steak and veg, chops, chicken - whatever I can be bothered cooking, usually followed by more berries and cream. I try and have a glass of milk and a piece of cheese at some point during the day but for whatever reason dairy no longer agrees with me at all and just makes me feel really sick for 3 or 4 hours afterwards, so I decided last week to give up trying and speak to the DR. this week and see if she thinks I should go on a calcium supplement. I'm taking a prenatal supplement, vitamin D and omega 3 oil each night before bed. I also drink as much water as I can and a little bit of juice each day.
2buns - I hope the bladder infection gets sorted out. I had one (apparently - no symptoms) before Christmas which really upset me. I had to go in for a BP check on the 15th Dec and they did a urine check as well, sent that off to pathology and rang on the Friday to say I needed to come in and get antibiotics for an infection. I wasn't thrilled as they make me sick but of course did as I was told. Then on the Tuesday before Christmas I had an OB appointment and asked him for a pathology slip so I could check that the ABs had done their job and he took a look at the previous pathology results and said to stop the ABs because someone had made a mistake and I didn't have a UTI in the first place! I was pretty happy with that, so stopped them straight away, only to receive ANOTHER phone call from the hospital on the Christmas Eve to check that I was still taking the ABs and that I was feeling OK. Seriously, WHAT? I burst into tears on the phone and went into total meltdown! Couldn't these people get anything right??? I went to town on the DR. that rang me because I really feel as though they seem to be getting things constantly wrong. Poor girl was just an intern I think, so I demanded that my OB ring me with the CORRECT results this time. So he rang, all apologetic and said yes, I did need to finish the ABs. So I'd just gotten over the stomach upset and thrush (TMI???
) from the first attempt, only to start all over again the day before Christmas!
BP has been fine and so I no longer have to go into the clinic weekly for checks and have a five week break from the OB before my next appointment with him. I have a 28 week ultrasound on 4 Feb and an endo appointment this wednesday. The bean is kicking me regularly now - 10.30am and pm - you could set your watch by it! I get other random kicks during the day but the 10.30 ones are regular, active and full on. DH can feel them on the outside of my belly sometimes too now.
I hope everyone had a fab holiday.
PS. I love everyone's name choices! We're still going with Lachlan James for a boy and still undecided for a girl - we both like Chelsea at the moment.
