To my beautiful children,
I went to the doctor this morning at 8:30 am and he said that the cause of the bleeding on Sunday was due to one of the placentas detaching slightly from the uterus. That placenta is quite the drama queen…did it really need all of the blood all over the place?! Drama, drama, drama. Dr. Glenn said that since the bleeding has stopped, I don’t have too much to worry about but he does want me to take it pretty easy the next 4 weeks. He said that I shouldn’t exercise, but I can go to work and that bed rest is actually a bad thing for me right now because it could cause blood clots if I’m not moving around enough. It sounded like he thought I would be sad to hear that but I told him to rest assure, bed rest is fun for about 3 hours until you get bored with your Netflix show. I’m more than happy that he told me to go to work! He said that getting up, getting ready, and doing things like getting up to get water and use the restroom during the day is about the all the exercise that I need right now and that amount of movement will be good for me.
I also need to get another rhogam shot in 12 weeks to protect my babies in case they have positive blood types.
As for my diet, I think I need to start working on that. I’m feeling much better this week than last week so far, but still only a few foods sound good at any given time. Today, it was a chicken, egg and cheese biscuit for breakfast at Chik-fil-a, and a baked potato at Wendy’s for dinner, among other things. Before I got pregnant, I would literally never go through drive-thrus. Like, maybe once every 4 months, if that. Now it’s two-a-days, apparently. It’s like I’m a football player going to practice twice a day, except it’s the drive-thru…and I’m sitting on my butt. So I guess it’s not the same at all.
I also couldn’t stop talking about hot dogs today at work because that sounded really good. Who am I?!!
You’re worth it!
