I'm Tired Of Doctors

I spent way too much time in doctors' offices today. This morning I had a prenatal checkup. Savy and I were dressed and ready, waiting on Jon, when she threw up all over me and herself. So we took a bath and got dressed again. Everything went well at the checkup. I've gained 3 pounds since the last visit....I guess that's good? We heard the heartbeat on doppler, but we have to wait another month to find out the gender...it'll be on March 11th.

Although Savy was feeling better on Monday, I had to go pick her up from school early on Tuesday because she was feeling bad again. We took her to the after hours clinic last night, but they weren't terribly helpful there. I took her to the pediatrician's office today after my appointment. They actually did an exam and ran bloodwork. They confirmed it is a virus (just like I suspected) and said really all we can do is make sure to keep her hydrated. She seems to be feeling better this afternoon. She has kept down a few sips of milkshake and four chicken nuggets...the first solid food she's kept down since last Friday. She hasn't had a fever for several days. The doc said it's ok to go to school tomorrow if she doesn't throw up any more and feels ok tomorrow.

I'm still waking up in the wee hours of the morning nearly every night. This happened in my last trimester when I was expecting Savy, but it seems to be starting early this time. I started out a couple of weeks ago waking up at 4am. For three days now, I've woken up at 2am....I really hate that. You'd think cutting down on caffeine would be conducive to sleep.

Gosh, I hope Savy gets to feeling better really soon! I know it's as hard on 'Mama' as it is on the sick child. Hopefully her appetite being a bit better is a good sign and she's on the road to recovery. I hope you get a solid 8 hours sleep soon too. It's a miserable feeling to have to be up and awake when your sleep patterns are messed up. You must take after your Mom; she says she doesn't sleep good either :-)

Thanks for listing my blog on your site. It's a definite learning curve for me but I'm learning to love the posting part. It's therapeutic for me even if it's not exciting news for anyone else.

Have a great day tomorrow!!

I'm glad Savy's feeling better. I can't wait to find out if we're getting a boy or a girl. Sorry you're not sleeping well. Maybe you can nap on your weeks off if Savy will nap with you.
