Pregnancy Whoa's

Well I wish I could say that my pregnancy has been the best thing and that I'd love to do it over and over. .. but this little baby of mine has put me in the hospital two times and gave me diabetes.
I seem to catch every cold or sickness around as well. It stinks.

I've started my every two week visits. I think all these prenatal visits are just so you can hear the heart beat so you know it's still worth all the pain. I know I'll feel differently when she finally does come but until then man I don't know...

This last trip to the hospital was aweful. If anyone has experienced a UTI, I'm really sorry. It started Sunday with a vengence. I had to run in from the car to the house coming home from church only to have like a drop come out that hurt so bad. then be in the bathroom every 5-10 minutes. for the same worthless drop and the pain! so we finally went over to the OB triage and waited a little bit for some comfort. they gave me some vicadin (sp) for the pain and that was wonderful. Made me sleepy but relaxed me enough so I didnt' still have to get up every few minutes.

My urine had blood in it so they were concerned that I might have kidney stones but the ultra sound they had me get didn't show any signs of one. Not that it would as teh ultra sound tech said they would have to be really big for her to be able to see anything. They can't do the cat scan when your pregnant because its x ray's.

We were there for 3 hours. not as bad as the last one. OB Triage is way better then having to go through the emergency room!

I thought I was doing better this morning but as soon as I got to work I could feel it come on again. The dang medicine my doctor gave me isn't working as fast as I would like. I don't know what to do. I think I'll give it one more day by 3:00 tomorrow if its not better I'm going to call and see if there is anything else they can give me. Cause sleeping on the toilet because Laying down for 5 minutes then having to get up again is just not worth it. So I'm here with the lap top trying to keep my self busy while sitting on the comode! Its not to bad I have a blanket around me and I read in my book as well.

I know not everyone wants to hear this or if I should have even said anything but well I guess if anyone has any advice or something that might make me feel better. Please feel free to comment and let me know.

Dang it Heather! I am so sorry! There is no sugar coating it, pregnancy is the greatest challenge! But, if it's any consolation, it really is all worth iy. If not we would all only have one baby! Just think, this is a blink in time and what you are creating will last for Eternity! Hang in there! (now talk to me in a few months when I'm in my 3rd trimester and I might not sound so positive!)Love ya! Linae

Those uti's hurt, Ive had one. I am so sorry. I wish I could say I love pregnancy, but like Linae said it is the greatest challenge. IT IS SOOO WORTH IT! Being a Mom is the BEST thing in the world. Only 64 days will go by so fast!

Hi Heather,

I'm sorry to hear you're having such a hard time with your pregnancy! The good thing is you're getting so close and I believe once the baby comes you will start to feel much better. Hang in there it will all be worth it in the end when you get to hold your baby girl for the first time! Thanks for the comment, I havent been on in a while! Take care and good luck!

Oh Heather, I am So sorry! It sucks to be sick, I hope the rest of the pregnancy will go fast for you. I was wondering if you still wanted that present for your parents? I could come drop it off for you since you're feeling sick. Call me okay?
