We have a routine appointment with Dr. Radbill today, and I plan on talking about the RLP more. Also, I want to discuss weight gain. I started gaining weight around 9 weeks, but it was slow and steady. That cannot be said now. I'm gaining anywhere from 2-5 lbs per week and my skin feels it.
Stretch marks are not something I'm worried about, but I do use Palmer's Cocoa Butter on my belly every morning before getting dressed. When I had OHSS and gained 20 lbs in 5 days I had NO stretch marks. Now my skin feels extremely tight and itches by the end of the day (most likely when I need to reapply lotion). If Ellie gives me stretch marks I will wear them as badges of honor because I was blessed to carry her.For today's appointment I am also hoping to plan the sugar test and 3d/4d ultrasound. Brandon and I both want to see what Ellie looks like before she's born. Plus we miss seeing her on the screen!
Sorry for the boring posts lately. I have so many things I want to write about, but the RLP has been taking over!
