I haven’t posted in awhile and thought I should let those that follow our journey here know whats been going on.
I have pretty much been sick, at the doctors, in the hospital and on the couch for the past 2 weeks. A couple of weeks ago I started bleeding heavily and drove myself to the ER. Rob met me there. We were both very worried and beyond upset. I was taken care of beyond all our expectations. I am so glad we decided to switch our care from Swedish to UW. The conclusion was that I had “passed” the second embryo that had implanted but didn’t make it. However, the strong bean (who we call King) is going great. Strong heartbeat and measuring right on schedule.
I have also had a hard time keeping anything down and at one point was feeling so bad that my doctor had me come straight to her office and started an IV drip from being dehydrated. Ugh. I have tried different medications but nothing is really helping. I have a prescription for one more that is very strong and I want to hold out before taking that one. I am hopeful this will pass soon.
I am officially over 8 weeks now and the embryo is now a fetus. Miscarriage is down to a 2% chance and I am on my way to being a normal pregnant lady 🙂
We are very excited and can’t wait to get completely out of this 1st trimester sickness. Its really hard. I just want to eat a meal and keep it down! I started protein shakes this morning to get some nutrition in me. The girls on my forum think King is a Queen since I am so sick. Seems that girls make you more sick then boys. Hmmm. Guess we will know in about 4 weeks.
I want to give a HUGE thanks to my darling Rob who is not only working everyday, taking care of me, the dogs and the remodel, but is always smiling and happy. I am truly the luckiest girl in the world and I appreciate him more then I could EVER find the words to express it. I love him so much. Thank you honey for being who you are.
