Yes this post is late, but that’s ok. Officially out of the first trimester and still feeling pretty much the same. This update is for 13 weeks to 13 weeks 6 days
How Far Along? – 14 weeks 4 days
Current Weight/Weight Gain – Pre pregnancy weight was 101.6, Current weight is 102.8……weight gain thus far: 1.2 pounds
Meds Taken? – 4mg folic acid supplement, 200mg progesterone suppository, 12.5mg phenegran taken every 6 hours, 25mg Atarax taken every 6 hours and trying a medicated patch for nausea control, 12.5mg Phenergan suppositories and a prenatal
Baby Size? – Baby is the size of a pee pod, measuring just under 3″ and weighing in at nearly an ounce
What Happened With Baby This Week? – Baby’s fingerprints have formed this week. Veins and organs are still visible through baby’s skin, but his/her body is starting to catch up to the head.
Symptoms? – by far the newest/scariest thing this week is uncontrollable dizziness. Pretty much anytime I move I get dizzy and light headed. It was so bad on Monday (13w6d) that I actually fainted. My breasts have become increasingly painful again and my nipples are starting to look like the aftermath of a bad sunburn. The nausea and vomiting are still going strong, and at this point no one is expecting it to go away. I have noticed the veins in my breasts and legs have become much more visible. Headaches have become a daily occurrence. I also noticed that I am producing much more dischatge than I was previously. I would estimate it to be triple the discharge when using the progesterone.
Cravings? – Still not craving anything.
Best Moment This Week? – going on a medical leave of absence
Looking Forward To Next Week? – Relaxing
Belly Picture Starting waist – 27″ current waistline 33.5″ up 1/2″ in a week and 6.5″ overall…..no change since last week. My stomach has definitely rounded out some though.
