Today was another dr. appt… I am starting to feel somewhat morning sickness… either that, or it’s just this sinus infection that’s totally kicking my butt… I have to take some medicine that I can’t be out in the sun with for some reason. Not exactly sure why, lol. Oh well, it’s just a few days. Some antibiotic or something.
The doctor said everything is going good, except that I’ve lost weight since I was in there last. So I’ve got a prescription to help with that; and after a little mess with the insurance company, we have that.
As far as the blood tests from last time, everything is normal. Cystic Fibrosis came back negative, not a carrier. So far, iron count is good and blood pressure is very good.
But the good news is that we only have to pay one co-payment for all the doctor visits. :-)
The doctor said we will have an ultrasound in 5 weeks.
Today was my first doctor’s appointment, after BSF. Seems from here on out, all of my monthly appointments will be on the first Tuesday of the month. Until I start going bi-monthly, of course.
K went with me for support during the blood test. :-) I hate blood tests and anything having to do with needles. So I made her stand there with me and hold my hand hehe. They told me in the doctor’s office that they were going to take 3 tubes. The lied. The lab took 5 tubes. But at one point, I really thought I was going to pass out because no one was saying anything. I was like, “K! Talk to me!!” So she goes… “uh… how’s the weather?” lol
She was also with me at the appointment. They tried to hear the baby’s heartbeat – and surprise! They heard it! The doctor had said he didn’t know if it would pick up or not this early.
So all things are going good so far!!
Well, we are back from Mississippi… we left on Friday the 20th and then got home last night, the 26th.
That’s the first time I’ve ever been away from home on Christmas Day. Since we were gone, we also had Christmas at my mom’s on the 19th.
We stayed with Steve’s uncle, where his grandma is also staying right now. We had a good time, mostly just hanging around and things like that. Especially since later around Christmas Eve and Christmas Day I wasn’t feeling too well. Was just very very tired and kinda sick to my stomach.
We did take his Grandma Christmas shopping on one day, so she could get some things. She ended up buying me a braclet/earring set – that was so sweet of her. We were going to go with her to see her sister and brother-in-law, but things never worked out as the weather got kinda cold and rainy later in the week, and she didn’t want to go out in that.
We came home to 10 inches of snow though… :)
Little Elijah or Caley got his/her first gift from Elizabeth last week as well, a good sized stuff dog.
