Zombie Mommy

I have been down and out for the past 2 weeks. I ended up being hospitalized for several days for dehydration after I couldn't even keep any liquids down for almost a week. I was so thankful to go to the hospital because I was freaking starving to death. It took 8 bags of IV fluids before I was hydrated enough to have to go to the bathroom! Today I am doing much better, and pray that I stay this way. I still get sick, but not nearly as much. I plan on going to work for a little while tomorrow afternoon to ease my way back into things since I've been at home for almost 2 weeks.

Today I had my first appointment with the perinatologist, and it went well. He changed all my meds and put me on a baby aspirin also. I got a really good ultrasound today and got to see my little one doing all kinds of wiggling and waving. I will go back there in 6 weeks.

We had our foster parents recertification visit today also, and it went well. We've also gotten some positive news on Fuzzy's case so we're just going to keep praying that things go well. Well, it's bedtime for me so nite nite.

Very Sick

L moved in with her aunt a week ago, and Fuzzy has been acting out the past few days. I'm not 100% sure that this is the reason, but his behavior has been so different than he usually is, and more like L. I know this is just a phase and I will be glad when it's passed. I am sick as a dog. My insurance won't pay for anymore Zofran so I have been up shit creek for the past few days. My doctor has put me on Reglan four times a day, but I still stay sick all day and night. I couldn't work on Friday, and I have spend most of this weekend in bed. My school work is so behind that I'll probably have to take an incomplete in one of my classes. I am so ready for school to be over because it's just another thing that demanding energy from me that I don't have. I'm praying that I get better soon so that I can at least go back to work and do more than talk to my son from my bed or the couch. I hate to complain so much because I am very happy and blessed to be pregnant, but damn does it always have to be so hard. Can I please catch a break sometimes?

Things are going good with my pregnancy. I had my first visit with my doctor this week, and also had my first ultrasound. I saw our little one's heartbeat, and the baby is measuring bigger than I expected. So my due date was changed to Sept. 14 from September 20. I have to continue monitoring my blood pressure, and also start monitoring my blood sugar 4 times a day. I will start seeing the perinatologist or high risk specialist around 14 weeks. This past week I have been having a problem keeping my blood sugar levels down, but my doctor thinks it's because I've been battling some congestion. So I'm taking a z-pack right now, and praying this finally kills off this nasty crud I've had. Also I'm in zofran for my nausea just like I was when I was pregnant with Madison. It's been a lifesaver!

Other news from the home front, L will be leaving our home on Monday. She will be moving with her older siblings to live with their aunt. We're all happy that this is finally happening, and we can work on bringing our home back to a normal environment (well as normal as a foster family can be). I wish her and her family the best.
