Baby update!

December 16, 2008 at 2:20 pm 3 comments

I saw my OB today and it went well.  Well, parts of it. The important part–the baby–all is well.  I didn’t get an ultrasound picture today (boo!), but s/he looked great, bouncing all around and growing well.  The kids had a snow day so they got to see their new sibling today.

So the not so good stuff.  BP was a little high–140/88.  It has been perfect when I’m checking here at home, plus I was a combination of nervous, pissed, and running late because of the weather, so I hope it was just a fluke.  PLUS, they took my BP right after weighing me, when I found out that I’ve gained NINE pounds in TWO WEEKS.  ACK!  WTF?  I knew this was going to be a problem, just not that much of a problem.  I am hungry all.the.time.  I can’t get a handle on it at all, and I’m eating very badly.  It is like I have no band.  I’m keeping a food diary for Dr. M, who I have to see again next Monday.  He wants to consult the nutritionist to make sure I’m getting enough and don’t need an unfill.  *sigh*  I’m truly embarrassed to show him this food diary.  I’m prepared to beg for a small fill if I have to.  I’m obviously getting more than enough to gain this much weight.  I need to get back on track, but it is really hard when I am just hungry all the time.  😦   I feel like such a failure.

    i know it’s so hard, but try not to get frustrated with the weight. i gained 10 pounds the past 15 days!!

    sorry to hear about the BP, maybe ask them next time to take it before weigh in? or at the end of your appt again?

    good luck!

      I commented to the medical assistant that it wasn’t fair to weigh me then check my BP. LOL Last time, when they were concerned with the BPs, they took it when I got there and then again before I left. I’ll ask them about that next time.

      I see my surgeon to go over my food diary on Monday…not looking forward to that. 😡

    Don’t feel embarrassed and don’t feel like a failure. These things happen during pregnancy. I wanted to tell you “Thank you” for being so inspirational and honest this past year. Your ups and downs was just what I needed to keep me focused on this journey and to know that success is achievable. I’m looking forward to 2009 with you in it…and to hear about the arrival of the newest member of your family and the challenges having a baby will bring to a bandsister. Merry Christmas my friend, to you and your family.
