I know some people do not consider 2nd trimester until 13 weeks, but I need this kind of milestone right now, so dammit, I'm in the second trimester :smileyhappy: I had an OB appointment today, which was good and bad. I'll start with the good news:
Munchkin is still alive and kicking (a lot of kicking!).HR was 164, baby and sac both measuring a day ahead, according to the doctor and ultrasound tech - "perfect."
I'm not doing nearly as well, unfortunately. I knew the appointment was going downhill when I peed in a cup and realized that my pee was not the right color by a long shot. I had massive ketones in my urine and lost another half pound :( OB was not happy. She tried to put me off of work until I started gaining. Luckily, DH was there and pointed out that we are going on vaca in a week and a half and I did great on our last vacation with eating. She gave me 2 weeks to start gaining weight or to bedrest I go. I really can't afford to be out of work right now, especially with us trying to plan financially for a potential new family member. She was really nice about everything but also really firm, which is why I love her :) DH was told the only thing I am allowed to focus on for the next 2 weeks is gaining weight, or I will be all the way out of commission until things improve. This gag reflex is killing me! OB said she doesn't care what I eat, I can live on Jolly Ranchers if I want, but I have to start consuming major calories now. (I'm already underweight and lost a lot of weight before the pregnancy due to anxiety, in case anyone is wondering why the doctor is freaking out). I'm 5'7" and now under 110 pounds - can't afford to lose another pound!
Sorry this is so long - off to force feed myself some more...
