28 weeks 5 days
I just made it to the Third trimester here, it was August 29, 2013 and I was 7 months pregnant. My belly had gotten much bigger hey, was continuing to gain weight as well although I had a major relapse with the vomiting and nausea, my prescription wasn’t doing anything for me either, I had to up my dosage and stick to a strict schedule so my body would always have medication in the system.
**********UPDATE from old blog**********
Week 26 was a week of whirlwind emotions, was the first time I had ever seen the actual foot press into my belly, was surprising because I was falling asleep and wasn’t expecting it, scared me awake to be honest. A couple days later, I woke up with no nausea and that was weird enough but I didn’t feel you moving much, you were kind of quiet last night too so I poked…… and nothing. I poked again still nothing, poked on the other side. Ok, maybe it was too soft, I shook my belly, you had to have felt that but nope nothing. I was getting scared, I got up still shaking and poking, maybe I would feel something, I was totally scared my the time I got down stairs to tell my sister Lissette that I had to go to the hospital because I couldn’t feel you. I have never cried more in my life than I have cried that day, all the whole time still poking and shaking hoping for something, anything!
She packed my bag but because she had her kids and Ilya just 1 month old she couldn’t come with me, called my other sister Leia to come stay with me. I barely even remember it all because I was out of it, was so scared I had lost my baby after coming so far, through months and months of vomiting and nausea, through going to the ER for IVs.
We got to the hospital and it didn’t take them long to roll me up to Labor & Delivery in a wheelchair, they gave me a ultrasound and I absolutely refused to look, didn’t want confirmation of my worst fears but the doctor told me look and on the screen I saw the little heartbeat, you were still there, wasn’t moving much but still there. They didn’t like how sluggish you were so they gave me some juice, then a snack because I hadn’t eaten yet. Then they brought me lunch and hooked me up to a machine to check your heartbeat and another ultrasound to fully check you out. After eating so much food and not feeling sick at all I could feel you bouncing all over the place and they could hear your heartbeat and hear you kicking and punching. It was the best and worst day of my life.
This is the return of my nausea, it crept back up on me slowly but surely. It started with dry heaves in the morning and progressed to throwing up bile then to actual vomiting. Now I am back to not being able to eat much or drink much. I don’t have any prescription either, I hadn’t been feeling sick at my last appointment so I didn’t ask for a refill. Now that I am so sick again I can’t get in touch with either my doctor or my nurses to get a refill on my anti-nausea meds. My next appointment is all the way in September and I have no idea if I will make it, I will try my hardest but I don’t want to lose any of the weight I had gained. I was 95 lbs before I got pregnant and lost 14 lbs to bring me down to 80 lbs, I am now 91 lbs and fighting to get back to and pass 95 lbs. I want to at least be 105 lbs before 30 weeks. Tomorrow I will be 28 weeks so I only have 2 weeks to gain all that weight.
