i just read my last post. i had forgotten how good i felt right after getting the pump. things are pretty different now. i had to go to the ER for the third time on Oct 23 and they ended up admitting me to antepartum for 3 days. i gained some weight back in the hospital, i was down over 22 pounds. my OB put me on bedrest, so i've been at home for the last 3 weeks or so. the nausea and vomitting has actually gotten worse, but in general i think the bedrest is really good for me. it was getting increasingly difficult to maintain a regular work week much less a work day. now all i have to worry about is resting and trying to eat.
in the hospital we found out we're having a GIRL!! everyone is super excited to have another little princess around the lowder house. we got to see some 3D images of her and i think she's beautiful. although i readily admit the 3D pictures are fairly creepy.
my mom has come up the last two weekends and that's been a huge help. mike's needed to do some work on the flat in the city, so i'm not alone with claire all day. last night she made my grandpa stallone's sauce and meatballs and i wanted to eat it soo bad. so i did! and actually kept it down. that's huge for me as i haven't been able to eat dinner in weeks and rarely keep stuff down in the evening.
