What's Up With Baby:
Jellybean keeps fluttering around! I feel the little butterfly movements and smile from ear to ear every time I feel a flutter. Baby is the size of a sweet potato this week and the doctor said that by it's little heartbeat it sounds like a very happy baby :) Which makes us all a very happy family.
What's Up With Mama:
I'm working hard to try and get my appetite up again. I was already told that I can NOT lose anymore weight. At last weeks appointment I was told that I was down a total of 10lbs, I'm already in my second trimester and that is no bueno for the baby. I'm on strict orders to double my calories, I need to gain weight! But I'm not hungry and every time I eat something I feel queasy. This darn nausea that won't go away. The doctor also decided to send me to a Hematologist, my blood platelets lower each month and they are now low enough where she worries of my blood not clotting properly when Jellybean is born. Therefore I'm going to the hematologist to get more test done and together they will come up with a plan but right now she said it looks like I will be put on medication so that I don't bleed out.
With the nausea and loss of appetite it's very hard to have cravings but things might be looking up a little because it seems that I have little cravings here and there. This week it looks like I'm craving onion rings :)
This mommy has been getting in some cardio and so far one morning run this week. It was way too hot and humid yesterday and today, but tomorrow the weather looks promising so a morning run it is!
I'm usually a baby cry and I'm now even a bigger baby cry. Everything makes me cry, everything!
But I'm so blessed to have the family, husband and munchkin that I have, because they are amazing and so patient!
Yeah, my bladder is a mess it's like i have to pee every second! Jellybean thinks my bladder is a trampoline and likes to jump on it non-stop :D
