* updating my lady friends!! (((: *

okay, so all of you were right.. I worry wayyy too much & our baby is perfectly fine! lol

we went to our OB appointment this morning - 13w6d & "Baby A" seemed to be resting peacefully (he/she is not going to be a morning person.. just like mommy & daddy lol), heartbeat was great, and he/she has grown soooo much in 4 weeks!!! spine looked great also.. my OB has a somewhat older ultrasound machine so there was NO guessing of the gender, but we should get a pretty detailed look of things when I see the specialist about my cervix on May 6th! (((:
oh, and she didn't say anything about the Subchorionic Hemorrhage.. so I'm hoping it's gone?

her ONLY concern is my colon disease (Ulcerative Colitis) keeping me from gaining weight. I NEVER went
over 105-110 lbs. until recently (I did good to get where I'm at), but when I got really sick from my disease I got down to about 95 lbs. finally got up to 125'ish at one point. well, 4 weeks ago & today I'm holding steady at 122lbs. she says as long as I'm not losing weight we're okay, but she also said I'm at that point where the baby is going to be taking all of my nutrients & I need more.. SOOO she suggested Carnation Breakfast Essentials - I used to drink these after I lost so much weight from my disease..

I guess I'm just aggravated b/c MY disease could be hindering my unborn.. "/ definitely going to make it a habit to drink a couple of these a day though & continue with my prenatal vitamins, and everything should be fine!!

I can NOT thank all of you ladies for your support, prayers, talking sense into me when I needed it, and for telling me to chill out when I needed to chill outttt!! lol sometimes I know what I need to do, say, etc. BUT it totally helps to hear it from other mommies.. good, kind-hearted, caring mommies who are as amazing as some of you!!

I love you all so much, thanks for reading, and please continue to keep us in your prayers!!!
prayer works!!! ((((((:

Thehe, I'm feeling pretty great. Sitting here bouncing on this yoga ball lol. Been going at it for about 20 mins now. I was pretty shocked cause it feels kinda good doing it lol. Seems to relieve pressure off my back. :D
7721203 tn?1468443229
thank you so much!!! all of this still seems so unreal! lol

how are you doing today?! I read a post of yours yesterday, but I didn't comment.. I talked it over with my fiancé though & I've been praying for you! I tend to talk a lot so.. I meant to send you a message! lol (((:
7721203 tn?1468443229
lol!!! I laughed so hard, my fiancé looked at me like I was crazy ha!

I've heard a lot of good things about those!! I have a *TOUCH* of scoliosis in my lower back & I always heard it could relieve back pain.. I'll definitely need one asap.. the bigger this belly gets the more help I'll need!! lol

no changes though?.. any labor signs??
Avatar universal
You're welcome! Sometimes it still seems unreal to me too! I'm so very happy for you though. I was trying to write you back yesterday and my phone cleared out my long message once again! :(( stupid phone. Thank you so much for praying for me. You're in my prayers as well. :)) LOL, it's ok, I kinda talk a lot too!

Lmao, no one ever understands when your staring at the computer screen or phone and just start laughing. Always have to give you that weird look. xD You should definitely get one and try it. Feels good for the back! Aaand it was only 10 dollars. :) no changes yet! Still little pains on and off but nothing regular.

oh I'm sorry, I was so confused for a second.. the last thing I posted was for you @Ooolala1988! lol
7721203 tn?1468443229
well I DEFINITELY will get one!!! lol I was hoping you'd be in labor by now!! haha maybe early next week!!

make sure you keep me updated though!!

& yeah.. I guess laughing at the laptop or my phone is a little strange sometimes lol! I'm glad you've got some relief though!!
Avatar universal
Yes! I'll be sure to keep you updated. I think it will be next week! Although I'm feeling kinda nauseous and experiencing lower back pain now. I think I'll lay down for a few lol.
7721203 tn?1468443229
oh no, get some rest!! I'm laying down too.. these headaches have been such a pain lately!! "/

Aw, I used to get them a lot in the beginning. :/ I hope you get to feeling better soon. I always hated getting them cause I never wanted to take anything for them. I was to scared lol. A cold dark room helps though. :p
7721203 tn?1468443229
yes!!! I was just able to take a short nap.. it did help a good bit.

I don't like taking anything being stuff like Tylenol (and anything else I used to take before I got pregnant.. like Goody's, Aleve, etc.) can't affect my colon disease..

I'm terrified to take a Tylenol & have a flare up b/c they could cause even more damage.. dehydration being the main thing.. so I try to tough it out too!! ((:

Super happy to see an update from you! Glad things are looking good. :)
7721203 tn?1468443229

I couldn't have made it this far without you amazing ladies!!! (((:
next step, finding out whether it's a boy or girl..
we have names picked out, but I'll reveal those soon enough!! lol so excited!

Glad you and baby are doing great! And that blood clot is gone! That's awesome news! :)
7721203 tn?1468443229
thank youuuu! and I sure hope so!!! she didn't say anything about it so...
I'm just going to claim it & trust that God took it away!!!

I've not seen any blood since 10w4d'ish anyways, so she didn't seem too concerned.

sooo, yayyyy!!! lol come on October!! (((:
7678907 tn?1400809113
Me? I'm around!!! This app is so hard to communicate on, haha. :)
7721203 tn?1468443229
lol ohhhh I see what it is.. I tried adding you as a friend a looong time ago & I'm assuming it didn't work!! lol I'll try again!!

how are you feeling/doing?!!
8101930 tn?1420001456
Yeah that's great! It's most likely gone if she didn't say anything! My doc didn't say anything about it until I asked.  Hope time flies by for you and me! Can't wait to meet baby already! :)
