Sorry I have been MIA. It is hard to post from this darn iPod. I was going to do a good one from our laptop but it unexplainably crashed a week ago and has been at the doctor since.
First things first we found out we are having a gorgeous little GIRL! And 2 days later I felt her move for the first time, which was amazing.
I am still on bedrest, although a bit modified. I can do some activity, like go to the movies, shower more than twice a week, travel within a half hour radius. We saw the perinatologist last week, Dr. B, who is amazing. We got to peek at our precious little girl for over an hour! She is growing and gorgeous. The hematoma has gotten slightly smaller which is good, and there is no new blood showing on the ultrasound which is also good. Everything seems to be stable and going in the right direction. Praise God!
I have a few pictures, belly and ultrasound, but I haven't figured out how to upload them on this thing yet, hopefully next time I can share a bunch! I got also got to travel by wheelchair to finish up my Christmas shopping and see TSO and Wicked! Both shows were awesome!
Total Weight Loss/Gain: +11lbs ....could be a bit more since I have been so sedentary
Maternity Clothes: Well when I get out of pj's I am in my awesome Old Navy maternity jeans, and I love my maternity tops since it's a rare occasion I get to flaunt my bump.
Stretch marks: None from pregnancy
Sleep: more energy, but I can't do anything with it.
Movement: lots! I had an inkling I'd felt her about dec 7th, but now i know it. Steve hasn't been able to catch her movement yet, but it has to be soon because her kicks are getting stronger everyday.
Cravings/Aversions: still craving shakes and ice cream, which is so weird for me! Still cant eat pizza, and most meat kind of turns me off. Although we had prime rib for Christmas which was delish!
Gender: a beautiful gorgeous baby GIRL!
Symptoms: None really except my burgeoning bump, and slight cramping from the hematoma
What I miss: Jimmy Johns, sushi, an active social life....WORK, can you believe it!
What I look forward to: Viability which is in less than 4 weeks!
Moods: Generally good, although bedrest can get a girl down
Milestones: halfway cooked!
Medical concerns: Subchorionic hematoma, and baby was detached from uterus (she has now started to refuse, thank goodness) Baby looks very healthy.
