UPDATE: I spoke with my doctor about the iron pills and he said I can try to do diet and we will retest next visit. So small win. How much red meat should I try to eat?
My midwife also said molasses were good too, so I’m thinking that gives me the go ahead to eat a lot of ginger cookies 😉 How else do you fit molasses into your diet?! Here’s a few other resources I found:
So I got a total of maybe 2 hours of sleep last night, because I could hardly breathe I was coughing and wheezing so much. I called the doc when they opened and they had an appt. for me 30 minutes later! The doc basically just said it’s a virus and gave me an inhaler and told me to take sudafed and mucinex. I’m just glad I went now instead of getting worse over the weekend, so hopefully I’ll start feeling better soon.
I also passed my glucose test (YAY!!! Totally made an applie pie last night to celebrate), but the doc said they forgot to check my iron levels (#bangsheadagainstwall), so I have to get my blood drawn again. I have a feeling they’ll be low…I just don’t eat enough meat, especially while my husband’s away. I’ll try to eat more this weekend.
Oooh sounds like some of your ladies have some great nurseries planned. We might have to share some pics once everyone has theirs set up 🙂
I’m glad you were able to get in and see your dr – hopefully you feel better soon!
As for bumpers, the bedding set I ordered comes with it. Apparently they’re not breathable, so I won’t use the bumpers in that set. But I might check out mesh bumpers.
EEP!!! Our crib & dresser are in and ready to be delivered. Delivery is scheduled for the 8th! For some reason this is making everything feel more real!
I feel so much worse than I did yesterday. The inhaler he gave me definitely opened my airways, but now I’m coughing up a storm. I also have a runny nose and watery eyse. And i’m coughing so much that my back hurts now (like from where my lungs are). I would loooove to take an antihistamine, but it’s not on my approved meds list 🙁 I’m praying I don’t get worse over the weekend, because there is no urgent care here…just the Italian hospital ER, which I REFUSE to go to, especially alone. Baby girl is still moving around, though, so that’s good, and the doc said that what I’m taking is fine for her. I just hate having to take anything. I leave for America in 5 days and need to kick this thing. I really wish my husband was here.
Anyone else super excited that we are getting so close to the third trimester???? (Or some of you have started it?!) I am 26 weeks today and according to Dr. Google, Week 27 starts third trimester! Wahoo! Maybe that fast forward button is working 🙂
Hello ladies and babies!!!
I have not been checking in for a while. Hope everyone had great Thanksgiving and looking forward to the Holiday Season.
How far along? 25wks 6d
Gender: Team green… but I have a very strong feeling that it is a girl.
Total weight gain: 12 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yes. Just two pants and bought some long tops in one size larger than my normal.
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Belly button? Innie.
Sleep: I get up 3-4 times to just turn to the other side and use the restroom. I still get up between 5-6 o’clock in the morning (I have not been to work for 5 weeks and until this day I can’t go back to sleep).
Best moment this week (so far): baby has been really active. I was watching the ‘Long Island Medium’ and basically she was giving reading to a mother stating that when the lady was pregnant, her passed away parent was holding the baby before it was born. Both of my parents passed away and it has been really hard for me to deal with. I believe that my parents were playing and holding the baby in these few days when baby has been active.
Classes? My insurance provides with free lactation class and others. I’ve been reading and talking to my friends who are breast feeding and they ALL SAID, give about 6-7 weeks until you and the baby ‘get’ the breastfeeding.
Nursery progress? I have been cleaning out my study room for the past 5 weeks I’ve been home. It is hard since I have SO MUCH stuff and its closet acts as my purses and shoe closet as well. I plan to have the crib in my bedroom until baby is few months old so not really in hurry to get it done. However, I need to get the 3rd room ready for my hubby to sleep in: Bed, night stand… etc.
Names picked? Hailey Mina (girl) and Hayden _____ (boy).
Struggles? Since I am on semi-bed-rest, it is very hard for me to stay in bed, sitting, RESTING!!! I can’t exercise (swimming, lifting, walking my dog, all out the window). Believe or not, I miss working, my co-workers, and all…
Most worried about? Keeping this baby inside of my uterus for at least another 3 wks (short term goal), but I want/need baby to be inside at least until it is 36 wk old. About 10 more weeks to go!!!
Cravings? I was at a market where they had FRESH SASHIMI trays. I was staring at them for like whole minute. I told my hubby that’s what he MUST get for me right after I give birth. Moscato – WEIRD, because I do not and cannot drink. I am a ¼ shot wonderer. But yes, I have been wanting it.
Sorry to hear you’re still not feeling well. I hope you can get some much needed rest and kick this cold.
