Quick update

So, for the past 2+ weeks I have had trouble breathing. Not just regular breathing, but good, strong, actually satisfying breathing. It has kept me up at night and made me abit lithargic. So..went to see Rachel (my fabulous OB). Aparently this is a common occurance in the first trimester, but the "attack" usually only lasts about 15 minutes. So to be on the safe side she sent me to have a CT scan of my heart and lungs. She wanted them to check for a Pulmonary Edema. Thankfully the scan came back clear, but that still leaves me with struggling to catch my breath. She prescribed and inhaler, so hopefully that will start working in the next couple of days.

Anyway, other than that we are doing great! I am feeling wonderful as far as no nausea or sickness is concerned. We attended Norfolk Church of Christ's Praise in the Park on Sunday at Norfolk Botanical Gardens. It was a beautiful day and it was great to catch up with a lot of friends that we don't get to see often enough. There was a TON of great food both for breakfast and lunch. Unfortunatley most of which I couldn't eat because for some reason foods with really strong flavors or smells have been making me a bit queezy. BUT...a great time was had by all!

So, I am heading to the Chiropractor this afternoon to get adjusted, as the spin truly affects your body as a whole. The adjustment I received last week is truly the only thing that gave me any relief from this breathing issue so far.

Hope you have a great day!

Sounds like a fun day. I had to stay away from the grocery store. The meat section made me ill every time.

I remember having the same kind of breathing problem with Hunter. I kinda figured that it was related to my quiting smoking (because I was pregnant). I think it only lasted a few weeks though.
