No picture this week. Oh, well. For those of you who are asking for a belly shot, I will try to do that. For now, trust me when I say I look very pregnant. I have gained about thirty pounds.
At this point, Michaela weighs over three pounds, and she will gain a half-pound per week for the next seven weeks. Yikes!
I'm still hurting. Sciatica and all that jazz. Reflux periodically that causes me to vomit. I saw the OB on Friday, and she recommended Nexium for that. She also extended my leave another three weeks. Bless her heart.
Friday morning I was feeling really weird. I had been awake from 2 o'clock to 6 o'clock in the morning the night before due to terrible back and hip pain. Then I was struck with crazy hunger pains. Got up to have a small bowl of cereal, and that brought on the reflux. By the time I got up again in the morning, I was feeling really shaky. My sweet mother came and picked me up and took me to my OB appointment because I didn't think I was fit enough to drive then. Once at the doctor's office, they checked my blood pressure and it was normal. Not sure why I was feeling so shaky, but the doctor said it could be pregnancy related.
I have to admit that I'm feeling really low. I'm so tired of not feeling well, and I've spent a lot of time by myself. Not a good combination. Seven to ten weeks to go. Lord, help me.
