Today was the last PIO injection...FINALLY!
Today was the last set of Alora patches...FINALLY!
10 weeks 3 days today. Last ultrasound was at 8 weeks 4 days growth only one day behind my own, not the doctor's, estimated due date. I still say the baby is due 27 July not 30 July as the last menses were on 20 October.
I FINALLY broke down and bought maternity clothing. Oh I don't need them yet but I hope to next trimester. Babies R Us was having a 70% off maternity clothing sale. Unfortunately it didn't extend to the lingerie. For $91 and change I purchased almost $300 in clothing. I will probably need a few more items to fill in the wardrobe like a nice black dress for dates or church. What I got with what I spent: 1 pair jeans, 1 pair dress pants, 1 pair leggings, 2 tshirt, 1 tank top, 1 short sleeved odd angle seamed shirt that distract the eye from the tummy, and 1 3 piece pajama set. Oh and I almost forgot I also bought a parent to be card for my friend with that money as well. So I actually spent less than $91 on all that clothing.
I've lost 3.2 pounds in 5 days. Unfortunately I craved something last night and caved in. It was a salty snack so I gained 1 pound of bloat back. I wouldn't mind gaining if it wasn't water weight.
Not sure if my OB clinic is aware I'm now in the timeline for the Nucal scan. I think since this clinic is so over crowded I'll have to be proactive with them as well. The mass pregnancy appointment isn't for two more weeks where I'll sit through a 3 hour seminar and fill out more paperwork. About a week later I'll have my appointment to actually see my OB team. Maybe they'll then realize that oops we need to get her in for that scan within a week?
I'm still really worried about miscarriage. I can't wait for week 11 to get here. I just can't be hopeful right now as I lost the first pregnancy at 10 weeks 6 days. For those of you that have lost pregnancies I think you can understand passing this milestone.
With J getting ready to deploy the house has not been a pleasant place to live. I've thought about leaving for a while. No it isn't getting violent on his end, just really shouting and stressful. Deployments, even short ones, are hard on the military family. My husband isn't very good at expressing himself until he blows his top. Whereas I am the time to let him know when I am pleased or displeased right off. I don't mince words. Why let the anger fester I figure. Get it out in the open where it can be dealt with right off and a solution still found while it is relevant.
I'm still waiting on the 3 hour glucose test results. Maybe tomorrow it will be in. When they do call I'll hopefully remember to let them know I'll be needing the nucal scan too.
