s/c - I've been able to eat for 2 days now!!! I had been doing unisom last week and it helped in the morning, then after a week I did a weekend "cleanse" of the unisom, then started it again Sunday night and I've barely had any m/s yesterday and today. I'm so excited that this might be the beginning of the end of it! Just 3 days ago I was in tears thinking that if I was so sick and exhausted now, HOW was I ever going to make it the rest of the pregnancy, not to mention labor? This is HUGE people!
I've also "popped" in the last couple weeks so I've started wearing my maternity clothes. Excited about my belly bump, lol.
other - Worked out a little too hard since I was feeling good yesterday and today my lower back is killing me! Guess I need to ease back into it all after being so sick, lol.
next mw/a - Thursday. It was supposed to be yesterday but she was at a birth all night and asked to reschedule. Can't wait to hear the h/b again!View Thread
Geeze, what a jerk! You'd think they'd want to see you to establish care "viable" pregnancy or not. So sorry you were treated that way. I hope you find an office and dr that you really mesh with and treat you like gold!View Thread
Congrats and Hugs! I hope he gets a clean bill of health soon. That's weird that he's NPO. Usually the more a baby BF's/eats the more he'll poop, so I'd think they'd be encouraging you to BF him?? Praying it's all over soon!View Thread
I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner! Hugs. I am so sorry about your loss. I got pregnant 2 weeks after starting to bleed with my last miscarriage. I know others who have as well. Although my last loss was at 5 weeks, so I'm not sure about getting pg so soon after a later loss. I have heard that you're more fertile even right after a full term pg, which is one reason they recommend waiting to FD 6 weeks PP and even then to use protection even if you're BFing. So I'd imagine after a later loss it'd be the same. You're body is still in "pregnancy mode" and ready to accept a pregnancy. Hugs and sticky vibes!View Thread
Hi everyone! I'm back from Cabo! We had a blast. Couldn't get DD out of the water, lol!
Kailah and Snowflake
w/g - I think still down 5ish lbs. Wanted to weigh myself at the gym this morning, but forgot.
symptoms - m/s from hell. I started unisom last night and so far today is my best day in over 2 weeks, so I'm hoping it continues working! I was looking at myself at the gym and was joking with a friend that I'm really looking GOOD right now, but that's not really a good thing right now, lol. I'm so exhausted from being so sick this pg, too. It's been really hard on me and I feel so much guilt about everything - DH having to step up more, the kids getting the tired, grumpy me and being worried about all my vomiting, and not enjoying this pregnancy as much as I did the others. Blah.
other - I did get to see my midwife the day we left for Cabo. LOVE her!! She calms me down so much. She did an u/s and although we didn't get to hear the h/b on her machine, we got to see it! Babe was waving at us and wiggling around too. Made me feel a lot better so I could relax on my trip. I'm also starting to feel some little "pops" from baby. <3 Yay!!
Next mw/a - the 13th, I think? I still need to put up my June calendar, lol. I'm still on Cabo time View Thread
I see my midwife for the first time tomorrow and will step on a scale for the first time in 2 weeks (we don't have one at the house - I use the one at the gym and have been way too sick to go). 2 weeks ago I was down 5 lbs, so I'm interested to see if I've lost more, lol. I'll be 10w on Tuesday.
MORE importantly, she's going to do an ultrasound for me, too. I really thought I could get away without wanting/needing one before 20w, but I can't stop freaking myself out, between my recent m/c and how sick I've been. I'll be updating from my phone afterwards tomorrow as we're leaving from there to the airport to go to CABO!!!!! (Well actually we'll be in Houston for the night, then Cabo on Tuesday) Please send vibes/prayers for a healthy li'l snowflake tomorrow!!View Thread
s/c - m/s, fatigue, lowered immune system. Some RLP.
other - I have been sick, sick, sick. 2.5 weeks ago I got strep (holy cow! I didn't realize how bad or serious strep was!) Then a week ago, just as I'm feeling better I got a cold that turned into a sinus infection and now it's in my lungs. I have never been this sick, and for this long. A strange thing happened though - I don't know if it's just how our bodies work, or if God was just being nice to me, but during the bad parts of my illnesses, my m/s went away! Yesterday was really the first day I've had m/s in over a week. Of course now I can't keep anything down again, but I finally was able to pick up some morning sickness comfort which helped me SO much last time. Hopefully that'll kick in in the next couple days.
next (first) mw/a next monday, finally! 5/21 I'm going to ask my m/w for a u/s, especially with how sick I've been. :xView Thread
