Photo Friday: Butterbean, 11 Weeks
The Butterbean is growing with great rapidity. I've still got a few pregnancy hiccups, right now the doctors are keeping an eye on the placenta. The placenta is low-lying, which means I'm at a higher risk for bleeding. Things should be okay, but I'll have some extra ultrasounds in the next few weeks to check on things. I wasn't concerned until I came home and looked up low-lying placentas. Now I'm freaked out; I really need to quit looking things up and embrace blissful ignorance.
The only other thing is that I've been getting a bit dizzy. My blood sugar has been low and apparently Butterbean is sucking up everything I eat. I'm adding in a small mid-morning meal and a small mid-afternoon meal and then decreasing the amount I eat at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Hopefully this will keep me from feeling dizzy. Besides the dizziness I feel great. In fact, I feel totally normal 98% of the time. I don't feel pregnant like I did with Hope as I'm not puking every waking minute.
The only other pregnancy thing to report is that I want to eat nothing but Mexican food. I have been making nachos at home (healthy ones with black beans, veggies, and real cheese). I have to quite typing about it or I'll end up making more right this very second.
In non-pregnancy news, I've been in a blogging funk. I think I'm coming out of it, though, and I should be posting more in the upcoming week. Work has been stressful and the last thing I want to do when I get home is to look at the computer screen!
Okay folks, that's it for now. I'm off to brainstorm some blogging ideas to jumpstart my blogging mojo!
