Icing my bum

I have an ice pack on one of my injection sites. They’re getting more and more sore every day. It feels so good. Hopefully the next time I update I’ll be posting a BEAUTIFUL sonogram!

7 weeks 3 days today

2 more days until ultrasound!

I’m assuming if I’m still feeling all these pregnancy symptoms I must be still pregnant and Baby C must still be the one sucking all of my energy. That’s okay baby, Momma is here for that!

Adam thought our scan was the 21ST and last night we were talking about it and he was like wait.. what? He was just telling his brother how he’d be feeling better in a few weeks after the scan- haha!

I can’t wait. 2. MORE. DAYS!!

(7 weeks 2 days today)

Perfumes!

Today at work I am suffering from the overabundance of perfume! So many strong smells, and they’re killing me. I’ve considered running to the bathroom at least three times. I hate vomiting though (phobia of mine since I was a kid) so anything to avoid it I will. One of my co workers suggested a mask and so..

I feel so much better!

7 weeks!

Today I am 7 weeks pregnant. This weekend has had me napping A LOT. I’ve started to get night sweats, and since I don’t generally get those I looked them up. Apparently that happens when you’re pregnant? I’ve had exhaustion, cramping, heart burn, sore boobs off and on, and nausea. Seems in the morning when I wake up is when I feel the most ill. I’m thankful Thursday is right around the corner- while I’ve been keeping calm I really really want to see what’s going on down in my uterus.

My right side for the progesterone shots was SO PAINFUL so I switched to the left for the last 4 days? Now my left side is so painful so I’m switching back tonight. Adam gave me a good rub in that area last night but it hurts so much this morning.

I’ll take it if it means baby!

One week from today

One week from today I’ll be having my ultrasound. I can feel the crazy creeping in. I considered taking a pregnancy test this morning as I have one left over, but I didn’t. I hope I can make it until Thursday! I’m bouncing from being very confident to being terrified.

Adam and I had a talk last night and things are good now. He’s still keeping himself un-invested in this pregnancy until next week. He said he thinks when he sees the sonogram it will click for him. He never wants to feel like he did when we had our loss ever again. I told him I think it would hurt no matter what but hopefully we don’t have to find out the answer to that. I also made sure to reiterate that “not that pregnant” is not an accurate statement as the first trimester can be the hardest for some women!

I felt very ill yesterday. I went home from work and slept a few hours, per usual, and then had a normal few hours, then when I went to bed I swore I was going to vomit. I finally fell asleep. I had a lot of heartburn yesterday. Right now I feel “normal.”

I’m glad it’s almost the weekend.

 

6 weeks 4 days

Pregnancy brain is REAL.

It’s taking over. I do not feel like myself!

Yesterday I rescheduled my therapy appointment because I was so tired. I went home and slept for several hours. The exhaustion is overwhelming. I woke up every hour on the hour last night, and did not sleep well. Adam and I got into an argument before bed and that was that. We need to talk it out tonight. He used the phrase “not that pregnant” last night and I’m still pissed about it. Ugh.

This morning I almost backed into another car in my work’s parking lot- so embarrassing. Later my co worker came to me and said “Wings?” (for lunch, we all order out sometimes) but I thought he said “Twins?” Haha. Lordy. I said “Oh. Sorry. No, thank you.”

So much fog. I’m really glad for my blog and my support groups and now a few subreddits on Reddit. thanks for the support ❤

First food aversion- pork loin. NO THANK YOU.

Today has been a long day and it’s only about 1 pm. I can only describe it as “exhausted raging bitch” but only inwardly, as I work with patients, so I must be my nice and normal self outwardly.

At lunch time I couldn’t eat my pork loin. I opened up my lunch and it smelled like dog poop. I gagged. My co workers didn’t smell anything. I tried a bite. NOPE. Pregnancy is weird you guys. So I didn’t eat the pork and ate my veggies and drank my water.

That’s it I guess. The raging bitchiness has calmed down and I have a little more energy then I did. I had to lay down in the bathroom for a few minutes to get a grip on myself.

6 weeks 2 days and only 9 days away from my first ultrasound. Ahh!

Dry heaves

I had dry heaving twice this morning. I feel like pukey times are imminent. I put a plastic bag in my car in case of vomiting on the go. 😛

TMI INCOMING..

Last night Adam and I partook in.. ahem.. married activities. I wanted to hold off but we just couldn’t.. it had been over a month. It was gentle and nothing leads me to believe it hurt my pregnancy, no spotting or anything.. yet. I hope none ever comes. I’m so paranoid about it! I was nervous for a while afterwards but here I am next day feeling normally pregnant. Our doctor said it was fine 6 days post transfer but I didn’t trust it from past experiences, even though she said intercourse had nothing to do with those experiences. Knock on wood

I wished one of my old college classmates a happy birthday on FB and he responded with a thank you and that we should grab a drink and catch up sometime. I said “sounds good!” but I won’t be having a drink anytime soon 😉

I’m 6 weeks and 1 day today. I started to read “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” when I couldn’t fall asleep last night.

I’m hanging on until my scan.. just a week and 3 days left. :X

I went to a maternity store today..

because I saw this shirt and thought it was so cute. I’m allowed a little excitement, right?!

IMG_1515

I didn’t intend to. I was there to get my eyebrows threaded and I saw this shirt in the store and had to stop in! They also had due date tank tops but I didn’t want to get ahead of myself. The lady at the store chatted with me, gave me a few tips, and said that if I ever needed anything to just call the store. Talk about customer service! I saw so many cute dresses, all the mannequins had bumps. Anyway! I’m not going to wear it around or anything- yet.. maybe I’ll use it for my announcement photos when it’s time. 🙂

Ultrasound 9/1

I finally got my orders close to 4. Can you imagine if I hadn’t called? I CANNOT. My ultrasound will be with Dr. W on 9/1 at 8:45 am. Though I’m sad it’s two weeks away- TWO WEEKS!- since I’m on vacation I’m going to need that time to build up a few hours in my bank to be able to make the appointment. No earlier appointment for me! I was also told to take 2mg of Estrace just once a day now instead of twice, which is great! I’m looking forward to the time when I can stop my progesterone shots and the placenta takes over. My injection sites are SORE.

Acupuncture was NOT relaxing. The woman next to me was snoring the entire time. It gave me a headache, I just wanted to get out of there. I visited with my mom afterward then came home and lounged around. I went to bed after my shot at 8 pm and I’ve been up since 1ish when Adam went to bed.

Vacation has been great for dealing with my pregnancy tiredness- I am not looking forward to going back to work.

TWO WEEKS. I got this. For now…. haha :X
