Back to normal!

Thank god! I finally feel back to my self again. I can go about 2 hours w/out having to pee which I haven't been able to do in a week! I only woke up twice last night to pee! Ahh I'm so glad. I really thought I was going to go crazy. I just felt so helpless and felt like it was never going to go away. The new meds seem to be working and I haven't had any more of that nasty indigestion! WOOHOO! Today I'm 25 weeks. Wow, time flies. Thanks again for all your concern ladies =)

1st trip to the ER

Yep, ER. My OB changed my antibiotic because it wasn't working and it turns out I am severely allergic. I'm not allergic to anything. I woke up itching to death and had a rash all over (yes all over) and my bottom lip looked like Bubba from Forest Gump. What woke me up in the first place was a horrible case of indigestion. I took a few Rolaids & then started throwing up. DH & I went to the ER around 3:30 and didn't get home until after 7. They gave me IV fluids, Zantac, & Benadryl. I'm now on Amoxicillan 3x a day & Zantac 2x a day. Pee hole is still bugging me, I really don't think an antibiotic is going to do the trick. I am so miserable & tired. I stayed home from work today to get some rest but shit I can't rest when I'm constantly in the bathroom feeling like I have to pee... I hope this clears up soon or I'm going to loose my mind.

Appt Update

Hi ladies! Well the OB did an u/s of my bladder and an external exam. My bladder is emptying fine & the urethra looks good w/no blockage. Looks as though it's just a bad infection. He did change my antibiotic and if I'm not better by Wednesday they are going to reevaluate and possibly send me to a urologist. Fun, fun. I'm hoping this new antibiotic works and I get some sleep tonight. I did get to see baby's head in my u/s! It wasn't one of the nice u/s machines though so I really wouldn't have been able to tell it was his head if I didn't ask... I thought it was my bladder! Baby seems to be doing fine, HB was fine so I guess we'll just wait & see. Thanks for all your thoughts & concerns. Love you girls!

Pee hole appt.

I go to see my OB doctor today at 4:10 for my pee problems. I told them I was worried about my kidney's and how this is affecting the baby so they said the doc wanted to see me. I'm hoping they do and u/s to check my kidneys & baby so I can be at ease a little. I'm just really worried that something is way wrong... if this was just a UTI it should be better by now. I'll update you when I can tonight.

My poor pee hole

Ugh... this UTI is NOT getting any better. I'm on day 4 of antibiotics and it just seems to be getting worse. My pee hole just throbs. I feel like there is something stuck in there. I took a hot bath last night, didn't work. I ended up putting a heating pad on low and sticking it between my legs. I finally feel asleep. I got up to pee a few times in the night and was okay, woke up this morning and BAM it's back. I just don't understand why the antibiotics aren't making me feel better... this is just a miserable feeling.

Miss me??

Hi girls! Sorry I've been gone... my computer at home was full of viruses and couldn't be saved. We now have a used computer that my IT guy from work had and was able to transfer my pics and such to this computer. What a mess! I hate not having a computer! I was able to check email & get on facebook a bit at work but I didn't want to get on here because I didn't want someone to find my blog at work! I hope everyone is well & please comment & give me your updates as I will probably never get through all the posts since I've been away.

On baby news... I had my 24 week appt on Tuesday and things went well. Baby boy is doing great! We now start going every 3 weeks. My next appt I get to take the lovely glucose test which I hear is pretty nasty stuff! I'm so excited to be going every 3 weeks now... his arrival will be here before I know it! We've done our registry for the shower, the room is almost complete.. and now we wait! He's quite the little mover. I'm constantly getting kicked, not sure when the kid sleeps! Oh and did I fail to mention I have ANOTHER UTI INFECTION! Yeah, not fun what so ever. I feel much better today but I thought I was going to die yesterday. Apparently when you're pregnant you're more susceptible to them so I'm sure I'll have a few more before due day. Small price to pay for getting the incredible blessing I have. Other than the UTI I've been doing good. Sleeping is pretty difficult as my sides hurt when I sleep on them and I can't sleep on my back so I toss and turn a lot. I will get a belly pic on here soon... it's still on my camera so I'll have to get it on this new computer. Ugh computer... all my icons and everything are gone. GRRR. I hate viruses!

Don't forget to update me on what's going on in your lives! I hope all is well!

22 Week belly pic!!

Hi girls! Here is my 22 week belly pic w/a sneak peak at the baby bed. You get an idea of what the bedding & wall color is like. It's not done yet so that's the only pic I'm going to show until its complete! DH has been working like a dog so hopefully he'll at least have all the painting done this weekend. We still have shelving in the closet to do and hanging stuff on the walls and such. I'm going to put up lettering w/his name on it. So far his name is Collin! But that could always change so I'm waiting on the letters for a while. Hope you like! Praying for some BFP's... I know its testing time for many of you. Fingers are crossed!

Monday Randoms

Hi ladies! Sorry I've been so MIA lately. I've been so blah and tired lately. I've been sleeping like crap. No way is comfortable. I'm going to do some bullets because I have misc stuff to say both pregnancy & non pregnancy related!
  • I think my little boy is the cutest baby ever. I haven't even seen his real face yet but by looking at the u/s pics, yep he's the cutest.
  • Like I said... been sleeping like shit. I've tried both of my sides & got a body pillow to cuddle w/and it's not working! The only way that is comfortable is my back & you're not supposed to sleep on your back because it can press on some main artery to your heart. Not good. So basically I just toss and turn until my body finally gives out and just passes out. LOL. Not complaining though... totally love it =)
  • The nursery is coming along great. Walls are painted, furniture is together, bedding is on (not washed yet of course). Just have to put some shelving in the closets & get the window treatments up. EEK. The walls are a light green & the bedding is light blue w/frogs. Too cute. I love frogs. My MIL says his first word is going to be "ribbit."
  • Work has been going "okay." We had a meeting tonight and are making some changes so I'm HOPING that everyones attitudes get a little better. I'm hoping to find something different once the baby comes.. I'd love to be able to work 3-4 days a week and still get ins. which I know is pretty much impossible but our hospital works that way so I'm hoping to get on there somehow. Wishful thinking. I'm just having a hard time w/leaving him... he's not even born yet & I can tell you that it's going to be so hard to hand him over to some stranger at day care. Just the thought makes me want to cry. Ugh.
  • Tomorrow is DH's b-day & mine is Saturday. We aren't doing anything... hopefully do some relaxing but I'm sure something will come up. DH wants to get a bicycle for his b-day. One of those old man beach cruiser types. What a dork. I'm putting my b-day money towards a Glider & Ottoman. Now, who's the adult here? hehe
  • I have a surprise bridal shower for my friend on Sunday. I'm the matron of honor! I'm going to be huge at her wedding! I ordered my dress 6 sizes too big but I think I'm going to be swimming in it. My belly is getting pretty big but not as big as I thought I'd be at 6 months.
  • Speaking of showers... I pretty much have no one planning a baby shower for me. My mom & MIL will most likely be doing the whole thing. My friend (the one getting married) asked me the other day if my mom was doing it and I was just like "ummm I guess. Whoever wants to." Sorry but I think she should be doing it. I did her baby shower & now her wedding shower. She barely did anything for my wedding shower. It kind of makes me feel like crap knowing that the only people that want to plan a shower for me is my mom & MIL. I know my friends will help them but I just feel bad that my mom & MIL have to basically make it happen. They shouldn't have to do that.
  • Well I think I'm off to bed. Hope this post made some kind of sense. I think I'm delirious from lack of sleep.
