I had my 33 week check up yesterday. Not much to report = good news/healthy baby! I did not gain any weight this past week (how is that even possible?), my blood pressure was perfect, and Liana’s heart rate was about 145 bpm. We scheduled a growth ultrasound for next week to get an idea how much she’s grown in the past month and how much space/time we have left. Last scan she was estimated at 4 lbs + or – 11 oz.
Yesterday Evan was in a good mood. Our neighbor came for a visit and he was running and playing with no signs of anything amiss. However, a few hours after he went to bed, he started moaning and crying in pain. It wasn’t until nearly 1 am that Evan finally told me that his ear was hurting him. I gave him some Motrin and he managed to get some sleep, although it was still not very restful and interrupted by crying outbreaks. My poor muffin.
Paul took him to the pediatrician this morning and sure enough, the ear infection from a few weeks ago never cleared up and is now infecting both his ears. The doctor prescribed a stronger antibiotic for 10 days and asked that we bring him back in to make sure it clears up after we finish the meds. Here’s hoping this works this time!
Funny thing is…all day my ear has been aching! Sympathy pains?
