Yesterday had to be one of the best days of my life, besides of course having Xavier and getting married. We got to see the heart beat of the new little sparkle, and it was perfect. We are measuring exactly with the days that I thought, we are due January 9th. The heart beat was 164 beats per minute, which is wonderful. I cannot stop smiling.
Can you believe this, once I heard the heart beat my nausea went away and everything! I have been able to eat, drink lots of water and keep everything down! It is soo nice. It is like all my stress disappeared. I feel soo good now.
I got all my questions answered. I had to start my lovenox shots ASAP. I am at a higher risk so I have to take them. I was disappointed in that because I just hate having the blood clots take so much control over my life, even after years of having them, but I have to. They told me I would be threatening my own life if I did not take the shots…so of course I am.
I asked about a V-Bac. I see my regular doctor in 4 weeks and he is going to examine me to see if I am a good candidate for one. I hope I am, but I will have to see. There are so many rules with them and such, so I am going to have to really take that seriously and talk to my doctor, but I would do anything not to have another c-section again. I am keeping my fingers crossed, but I am not stressing at all…because seriously…as much as I want one, come 40 weeks I am probably not going to give 2 shits to get this little one out of me! (hahaha)
I am trying to think of the other things I asked, it was basically about exercising and weight gain. I can only exercise and do things that only elevate my heart rate to a certain number (seriously i cannot even remember because i decided no more jogging, and just walking…so I do not have to worry) and I should only increase my calories by 200 a day, and that would mean I only need to gain 20-25lbs…no more than 25 lbs…I am hoping no more then 15, but we will see. I just want to stay active and healthy…..although the chinese food I plan on eating later is not too healthy! HA!
That was pretty much my appointment yesterday. I am just soo happy this little sparkle is healthy and I am now able to keep food down! Makes me one happy prego women over here! WHOO HOO!
