11 Week (and 3 day) Update
I am late to posting this because I was supposed to have my first OB appointment this morning. On my way there (actually when I was in Grandville about 2 minutes from the office) I got the call that they needed to reschedule. All because there wasn't a protocol nurse there. From what I remember, that part of the appointment with both my previous pregnancies was pretty pointless. I can't imagine the third time being the charm here. Can't they check the records? Yes I am planning to breastfeed. Yes I want a circumcision if I am having a boy. No I am no interested in cord blood banking. Yes to all the tests I had done with my previous two and no to the ones I didn't. Hell yes I want an epidural (two if you can manage and the guy I had with my first pregnancy, not the woman for the second). Maybe all this ranting is just the pregnancy irritability I have been having. Or maybe I just really think that part of the appointment is a waste of time. Nonetheless, I have the appointment rescheduled for NEXT Friday and I am hoping that I can get my ultrasound done then too. Hopefully I will have belly AND baby pictures for you next week.
I am back to having zero energy. I feel that this may be because I have taken on so much with school, rather than from this little energy leech. I have been sleeping more (like 9 hours plus naps), but feeling this is adequate rather than feeling tired still. This past week all I have wanted to eat has been Arby's. More specifically, a roast beef sandwich with the cheddar cheese they use for the beef and cheddar and a mountain dew. The last three days I changed this craving to boneless wings from Buffalo Wild Wings. My weight is finally starting to increase. I weighed myself just now (rather than this morning and fully clothed) and I currently weigh 192.5lbs. On Tuesday, I should have weighed somewhere between 199.9-202.7lbs, according to Baby Med. I actually weighed 188.3lbs. This to me is great, but I am sure my doctor will be happy to know that my weight is increasing. Yesterday morning, my weight was at 189.9lbs. I have been monitoring my weight like crazy because 1) I don't want to gain more than 15 and 2) my doctor was worried that I have been losing weight. My bump is starting to look more like a bump, but I still feel like it just looks like I have eaten a lot. I think has something to do with the fact that my boobs are two cup sizes smaller than when I got pregnant with my first two.
