Its going to be a LONG night :(

Ugg its going to be a very long night, dante has thrown up a few times since about 7pm and its now a little after 12:30am. Tim has offered to stay up with him so i can rest but i dont think my mommy instinct would let me sleep when i know my baby is sick, so most likely it will be both of us not sleeping and making for a very interesting day tomorrow. Im hoping its just a tummy virus cause when dante asked for his gateraide it came right back up and he seems to be fine but i have him in a warm bath anyway. Im thinking we will take him to the clinic in the AM to be looked at anyway just to be safe. After such a good prenatal appointment today this had to happen :(  oh the life of a parent.

So about my appointment lol when i got called back the nurse informed me that my ob was across the parking lot at the hospital delivering a baby (the 4th of the morning) and i would be seeing someone else. I ended up with the ob that delivered Dante in 2008 lol and i didnt recognize him when he walked in the room! He lost alot of weight since i last saw him. Same doctor i remember though, loves to pick on me lol he said im measuring right on track and Trystans hb was great. Asked me to take a Non Stress Test (NST) which is where the attach a heartrate monitor and contraction monitor to your stomack and have you track movement for a time period. It was only suppost to take 20 minutes but someone decided to be a brat and go to sleep as soon as i was attached so 1 hour and an apple juice later he finally started kicking around. By the time that was over my ob was back and amazed that my bp was perfect and said i can schedual another growth ultrasound for Wednesday and we will go from there.

I was soooooo happy walking out of that office earlier. Just roughly 4 more weeks till im in the safe zone and considered fullterm and rouhly 7 more weeks till im 40 weeks! Its so strange though cause after last week everything is new to me. Im experiencing all the 'fun' last couple months for the first time. Ok well i need to get shorty out of the bath and hope we all get alittle sleep.

Going On 33 Weeks

Ya i slightly forgot to post after my ultrasound last week, guess ive had alot on my mind. With an anatomy ultrasound its medically acceptable for a baby to be +/- 2 weeks from your EDD, they also can be off by +/- 2 pounds. Well Trystan measured 2 weeks behind! I know I shouldnt worry but it makes me think back to Dante and him measuring 4 weeks behind at 32 weeks and im scared that Trystan is headed that way now. By the time i got home i had a voicemail from my doctors office and when they called back the next day it was to inform me that i was to be starting weekly visits on the 19th instead of next month, that means two more appts this month.

Idk its just hard seeing things that you know dont always mean somethings wrong but that can mean its headed that way and trying not to worry. Although it did make me look at my current habits and realize ive slacked on somethings that could cause his growth to slow (besides me bp issues). I had slacked on taking my prenatal pills, slacked on eating healthy and working out. We dont plan on going back to the gym till after Trystan comes so that means i have to focus on my eating habits more then anything now. Im trying to increase my protein intake and everything and ive noticed since i started that Trystan has been getting more and more active.

Im also trying to get my mom to take Dante for a week or so. We have two bedrooms upstairs that need to be completely tore apart, cleaned and organized. Its going to be alot of work and with a 3 year old on my heels would not be too easy. Anyway... my next checkup is Thursday the 19th, i will be 33weeks 2days and im praying it goes good.

Got Behind

So i figured i would post weekly but i forgot about posting last week so i might try playing catch up. Anyway as of today im 31 weeks 6 days and trying not to go into panic mode. Tomorrow marks 32 weeks, the point in my first pregnancy when i was sent straight from my ob's office to the hospital and that evening had my son via emergency csection.  Im so scared that something will happen, i dont know if tim and i can go through what we went through last time. But im trying to stay positive, Trystan is way more active then Dante was so im taking that as a good sign.
