Weeks/Due Date: 9+3 / May 26
Baby's size: Eastern tailed-blue butterfly
Updates/appointments? NIPT blood draw Nov. 2 then NT scan Nov 9. I also have two 12 week appointments scheduled lol. One is the group prenatal care (with other couples and a different mw) and the other is with my mw. Then I have to decide which I like better.
How are you feeling (symptoms, cravings, changes, etc)? Still pretty tired and struggling to be motivated. My food aversions were much better yesterday but today were a tiny step back! I even had salad and an orange yesterday! Also tmi but I'm super constipated. Tried colace once but I really don't want to get hooked on it so trying other things too.
GTKY: Anything you're looking forward to? This week or just in general future? Super looking forward to telling my parents and my in-laws. We've been debating when to tell them all and in the end my mom ruins it for everyone because she can't keep a secret so they're all getting told close to 12 weeks. Then excited for Thanksgiving to announce to the rest of the family. (Assuming my mom keeps her mouth shut lol.) Also super looking forward to our baby moon that we booked last night. 1 week in Asheville NC! Super nice resort with tons of restaurants, a giant spa, etc.

Weeks/Due Date: 26 + 3! 3rd Trimester! Due 2/23
Baby's size: a head of lettuce
Updates/appointments? This is a big one, but I've been MIA FOR SEVERAL WEEKS. Unfortunately, on 10/30 I was admitted to the mother and baby unit at the hospital for pneumonia. It was reallllly bad. My whole left side if my body was in incredible pain, I didn't have the usual symptoms of pneumonia but it most certainly was. I spent 9 days there since the first round of IV antibiotics wouldn't touch it. Eventually the infectious disease team came, and asked me about 10,000 questions. They reminded me of a younger Dr. House. They switched my antibiotic to vancomycin and it finally started to fight off the infection! I came home last Monday, and wasn't released back to work until today. I had my follow up with my OB today, and there is only ONE test out of the 100s they ran on me at the hospital that came back abnormal it's called a complement count (ch50), my levels came back high which means I have inflammation somewhere in my body, and it can also indicate an autoimmune disorder, or worst case scenario cancer. Of course my dumbass googled it and everything I read about elevated levels basically said that I am dying. 'My regular OB knows nothing about this test so she is going to contact the rheumatologist fellow tomorrow and give me a call back. I've spent the last 12 hours sobbing my eyes out in fear that something very serious is wrong with me, and i just can't shake it! It sucks, it sucks a lot. I am also having serious issues with delivering at the hospital after spending 8+'days there. I'm going to start seeing my counselor bc I have developed serious ISSUES surrounding the hospital, getting sick again, and the paralyzing fear of why I get so sick.
How are you feeling (symptoms, cravings, changes, etc)? HEARTBURN and gerd! Holy hell this child better have a lot of hair! I've been drinking a ton of milk to compensate for it, it's helping some. My new Rx for it should help too. I also look super pregnant! Can't imagine another 14 weeks, it'll look like I have twins!
GTKY: Anything you're looking forward to? This week or just in general future? Our baby shower is 12/3. I am super pumped about it! Literally can not wait! The nursery is slowly but surely coming together,
rikkiandjulie I'm so sorry to hear you were so sick. I hope you are feeling better from the pneumonia anyway. I hope you can find some solid information on the abnormal lab test. Real information is better than spiraling about dr. google. Thinking of you.

rikkiandjulie omg I'm so sorry you've been so sick. I did the same googling when I found out about my melanoma and definitely freaked myself out way worse! I know it's hard but the Drs really have all the good answers and Google can suck sometimes with horror stories! I hope you're on the mend and it's nothing serious! Glad you have your shower coming up to look forward to!!!!!
