So we have great news about the hematoma . . . . . it is shrinking!!!!
When I first laid down for my ultrasound, the tech said, I don't see it. Well I had a small panic attach, because I thought she meant the baby. But she quickly caught herself!!!
Apparently, my hematoma was about 12cm in mass, for those of you that are awful with metrics like I am , that is pretty darn big (check a ruler). And now it is about 4cm in mass!!!! So I was glad that I didn't freak out about the bleeding, since it was a good thing!
I am now on less restrictive restrictions, I still cannot clean (I'll take it) or do heavy exercise, I need to keep stair climbing to a minimum, but I can go on walks now! It is getting nice and I am soooo happy with that. I went on one this evening after work and wow, I could tell it has been almost two months since I did any real activity.
Here are the basic stats
Blood Pressure 100/60 (this might explain the falling into the wall this morning when I got up too quickly)
Weight Up a pound from two weeks ago
Heartbeat of Baby 155
Baby measuring 15 weeks 4 days
I don't go back until the anatomy scan at 20 weeks, so the countdown begins hurry up May 9th!!!
Here are the two god pics from today . . .
How Far Along? 15 weeks (baby is measuring 15 weeks 4 days)
Maternity Clothes? YES. I was going to try to hold out for a few more weeks, but (as you can see below) my stomach has popped and the Bella Band works in the morning, but by the afternoon, it is killing me. I bloat a lot later in the day and though the Bella Band has been great, it just doesn't work at this point. I am only wearing maternity pants, no need for shirts just yet! They are comfy though!!! I may wear them after the baby gets here!
Weight Gain? I am up to a total of 2 pounds. I gained a few ounces this week.
Stretch Marks? None yet, I am going crazy with the lotion though!!
Sleep? Getting better! Also, the doctor told me that my book is stupid and I can sleep on my back for as long as I am comfortable and have no worries!!!
Best Moment of the Week? Finally embracing my bump, I am wearing my regular shirts and it is pretty obvious that I am pregnant. I am really happy that I just accepted I won't be that itty bitty cute pregnant lady. I am just happy to be pregnant!
Weirdest Comment: There is a very nice and well meaning guy where I work, but he is socially awkward sometimes. So he stopped me and said wow, you are really starting to show. I said thanks . . . .and then he said, so tell me, what was it like trying to get pregnant for so long? I have been very open that it took us awhile to get here, so I am not surprised or upset he knows, but it was just odd how he phrased it. And he is not married and is in his early 20's so I am doubting he has personally gone through it. I hope it portrayed it well???
Movement? No, but other than finding out the sex, that is what I am most excited about!!!!!
Food Cravings? Soda, Cereal. Nothing new.
Gender? We didn't find out today :((( Our appointment is scheduled at 20 weeks, which is May 9th. I am sad it is so far away, but I went for the 20 week mark, instead of 18, since my Dr. said they get a much better anatomy scan at 20 weeks.
What I miss? Nothing really. I would love to have a little more energy, but I could have said that for the last 10 years!
Symptoms: I get queasy feelings at night, and have acid reflux. I am tired, but other than that, things are going great!!!!!!!!
What I'm looking forward to? Finding out the sex, getting a big bump, and feeling movement!
Weekly Wisdom: Get out of bed slowly, otherwise you will fall into the wall. I learned that the hard way.
Milestones: A bump!!!!!!!
Emotions: I am crying pretty easily. I cried at The Office proposal, I bawled with Meredith on Grey's Anatomy and that damn Folgers commercial still gets me. Otherwise, I am feeling more like myself, and so much worried has been lifted off my shoulders, since my hemtoma is shrinking!!!!!
Somehow, the bathroom pics are making me look smaller than I am???? The pooch is definitely there!!!! I may have to change locals?
