First trip to L&D but we're fine.

We had the joy of spending most of last week in L&D. I got a bug I couldn't shake and got extremely dehydrated and couldn't keep anything (including ice chips) down.

The previous saturday afternoon I got extremely sick and had to call Banks to come home from playing tennis. I hoped it was a bug that would pass quickly but on Sunday I couldn't keep down water, or ice chips. They admitted me to L&D for fluids and gave me zofran before I was d/ced, and I was feeling better. Unfortunately it didn't last, I was scheduled to follow up w/ the OB on Tuesday and I was as bad or worse so they admitted me again and kept me this time. I spent the rest of the week there getting meds and fluids and feeling like crap. Finally on Friday I started feeling better and I was d/ced again on Saturday.

I'm still a little weak and getting back to normal but all in all I'm better now. I saw the dr. again on Weds for what's being treated as my 24 week aptment and Sweetpea and I are good.

So that's what we're up to. I'll be updating w/ a belly pic in the next couple days!

20 week update

I'm horrible for going silent for so long. Between being miserable in the 1st tri and work chaos I just didn't have the energy to do much of anything.

We had a great u/s and appointment. Baby is measuring 12 oz and is right on track. We decided to not find out the sex so it's still a surprise. We couldn't get any good profile shots b/c the baby kept putting it's hands in front of it's face.

I was just so relieved that sweetpea was healthy and perfect. I can't believe I'm half way through this pregnancy, time is flying by.

We're starting our Bradley Method classes this weekend and I'm excited. I really want to go natural and am hoping to avoid a c-section. I'm looking forward to this and can't wait to start the class this weekend.

Again many apologies for dissapearing. I plan to keep updating more now that work has calmed down and I'm not exhausted and sick. Catch ya soon!
