Time is going by much faster than it was in the first trimester. We had another u/s yesterday and confirmed again that we are having a little boy. He is a big boy, already 6 oz, when the average size is 5. I noticed on my little diagnostic exit sheet, they checked AMA (advanced maternal age), High Risk Pregnancy and Large for Gestational Age. My doctor didn't say anything about it being bad that he was measuring ahead, but on paper it looks bad. Oh well. He is definitely filling up my uterus and his legs are folded up now, whereas at 12 weeks he was all stretched out.
Last night I got a massive migraine and my doctor had written me a script for lortab, but I hadn't filled it. I don't really want to take pain pills, but if I had those last night I think I would have succombed, because I was so desperate. I kept having dreams that I was having a horrible headache and then I would wake up and realize my head was still pounding. Finally the pain dissapated around 3 am after some tylenol. I made an appt with a massage therapist to see if that will help. Unfortunately, the only acupuncturist in town went back to his medical practice. There are drawbacks to living in a small town.
Also we got the final test results back on the integrative 1st trimester screening and we are negative for downs, trisomy 18 and neural tube defects. Phew!
Well that's the update for this week - hope everyone is doing well and we are on the downward slide to the weekend.
