Baby Girl's First Trip to the ER

I was leaving walmart Wednesday night when I got a text from my husband. He said baby girl had busted her lip and probably needed stitches. She had been in the recliner and fell out and hit her mouth on the computer. So I went straight home and my sister came over to stay with J. We headed to the ER, she had busted her inner lip and bit the outside of her bottom lip. Luckily we only had to wait about an hour before we actually saw the resident and then the Dr. The verdict..stitches. I left the room just before they placed her on the table and strapped her in, I knew there was no way I could stay for that. After they were done the nurse came to the waiting room to get me. When I saw my baby girl I almost broke down in tears, she was all sweaty, red and burning up from screaming and crying. She started crying when she saw me and pointing at the table they had put her on-she was telling me all about what they had done to her. She ended up with four stitches on the outside of her bottom lip.

She has done great with the stitches, I have to clean her mouth after she eats and put medicine on 3 times a day. We will go Monday to get her stitches out-I will most likely be alone so that is going to be tough.

18 week appointment

I went today for my monthly checkup at the Dr.'s office. My blood pressure was down to 134/68 but I had gained 7 lbs!!! He didn't say anything nor did he seemed concerned about the weight gain. I cannot gain like that again so I am trying to cut back on carbs at lunch and dinner. So far no name for the baby yet although I am hoping to stick with a "J" name. Also no movements yet but hopefully in the next month I will be able to feel the baby.

So until next month.....
