Bloodwork and Nausea

So I’m putting a cut in place for those who get squeamish from vomit and blood stories… (more…)

Long-Awaited Update

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

I haven’t updated because life has been throwing me curveballs lately, the most recent being that my hands are all painful and swollen.  I saw Dr. Awesome last Thursday and she gave me splints to try and get some of the swelling down and take care of what looks to be pregnancy swelling mixed with carpal tunnel syndrome.

I’ve gained at least 10 lbs in the last month.  While this is all OK with Dr. Awesome, it’s making me feel like a beached whale.  I’m guessing that Daniel is a growing boy and needs the extra weight — well… either that or it’s serious water weight gain.

We’ve also got MAJOR kicking going on.  I have a little soccer player in my womb and the kicking is so hard that it will actually make me flinch on occasion when I’m not expecting it.  The little beast has also figured out how to stick his foot between my ribs.

I will *try* to get tummy pics this week.  Because it’s not in my morals to do so, I won’t (hopefully) be showing any tummy skin.  You will, however, see THE BELLEH which enters a room just before I do.

Back on Effexor XR

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

As the withdrawal symptoms from the Effexor XR landed me in the ER last night, Dr. Awesome and I have decided that I need to get back on it.  It’s kind of risky because it is a Class C medication (meaning that it *might* cause birth defects, more specifically a congenital heart defect) but for me, the benefits of staying on it while pregnant outweigh the risks to me and thus to the sea monkey.  I have to go see her later this week to figure out how to reconcile my need to be on it with the pregnancy.

On the other hand, my sugars are absolutely beautiful and Dr. Awesome is happy with those.
