I wasn't sure if I could take any benedryl or not, so I suffered through the night.  I had to keep kicking the cat out of the bed.  That was the strangest thing ever!


Carrieco, That totally happened to me last time! My cat was snuggling up to me and burying his head in my armpit and I woke up covered in a rash around my arms and neck. I took a shower and it went away.... it didnt happen again but DH wanted to kick the cat out of the bedroom anyway so the cat never slept on me anymore.

I want tuna. Bad. One can of chunk light won't hurt, right? I know once I satisfy the craving, I won't want it again, but right now I want it more than ever. Who cares if it's 8am.

I eat tuna once in a while in pregnancy.

So do I, but then again I am also A-OK with coffee, so take that with a grain of salt biglaugh.gif

Finally had my first OB/GYN appointment, small shock when she put the ultrasound on my stomach and we stared at a completely still baby for a few seconds, but then she pressed harder and all of the sudden I could see a heartbeat. Yikes, that was a scary few seconds.

 

I won't be scheduled for my next appointment until 24 weeks, so 10 weeks from now but will go in a do the anatomy scan around week 20 I think. So I will be living vicariously through all the updates of you lucky folks who go to real doctors, lol.

 

The doc also found a cyst in my breast, but I told her that I had just weaned and really think it's milk related but I still have to go into get an ultrasound and get it checked out. I am sure it is nothing, but the fact that I have to go in gives me something else to worry over. Plus it is the same breast I have a benign tumor in, which they have lost all records for so I will use this as an excuse to get pictures of the tumor again.

 

On a good note, I have been bleeding free for four days!!!! I guess weaning the big-boy was really a necessity. Poor baby, but he seems to be processing it better. He's talking about how he can't nurse a lot less and only asks a few times a day now.

 

Take care everyone!

 

**PS I have come to terms with the TV induced naps. The past few days it has taken less than 5 min. for him to pass out in front of the TV. I'll work on getting him to take real naps later, right?
