26 weeks

This was not the relaxing weekend that I was hoping for. I feel guilty complaining because our little guy is perfectly fine, but if I'm being honest - I feel pretty shitty. Friday night we spent a few hours in L&D because I started peeing blood. Finally, the urine analysis confirmed it was a UTI and we went home after 1:00 AM. The next day it took way too long for the doctors to get a prescription into my pharmacy (the nurse gave them my information before I was discharged), but I have it now so that's good. Then this morning, I woke up feeling even worse. I have so much pain/discomfort from the waist down. It feels just like endo pain. I can't take anything to relieve it or find a comfortable position. I'm not even sure if it's related to the UTI, because the other symptoms I had seem better today. I just hope it gets better soon.

ETA: I have a fever above the limit listed on my discharge papers (100.4) so I just made another call to the on-call doctor. Hopefully it's not a big deal :(

How far along: 26 weeks

Countdown to EDD: 14 weeks/98 days 

Baby is the size of a: Lettuce. His eyes are forming (I didn't realize they weren't even formed yet) and he'll be able to open them soon.

Physical symptoms: UTI, body aches   

Mood: Crappy today   

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I don't know, maybe +12

Maternity clothes: Love them. I got new maternity leggings for $13 yesterday.     

Sleep: Eh

Best moment of the week: After our crappy night Friday, Seth and I (okay, I) treated myself to my diaper bag and all of the accessories I wanted! I can't wait until it gets here.

Movement: Yep - it was kind of cool to be hooked up to the fetal monitor because it was like his movement had sound effects. But I also felt bad about it because I know that Baby doesn't really care for the doppler.

Food cravings/aversions: Nothing in particular.

Sex: Boy

Labor signs: Not really. I had one BH contraction Friday while I was being monitored and I think I had a few yesterday, but that was it.

What I miss: Not being in pain.

What I am looking forward to: 3rd trimester - just one more week!

Milestones: Just waiting for 3rd tri...

Showing yet: Yep - enough that my students feel like it's safe to ask me about it. This is from yesterday. There's no way I'm putting on clothes today.


  1. I"m sorry you had an even worse day today!! I hope you're feeling better now and that the antibiotics are helping the fever...I really hope everything's ok <3

  2. I'm sorry about the L&D visit and you aren't feeling well. I hope you feel better soon.
