Okay this will be a hard one, cause I'm not really craving much of anything. I like salads more now I guess. I use to LOVE Taco Bell, but now I don't care for it all. I didn't get sick (didn't get sick with my DD either) but had tons of food aversions early on. Seems like it was more prominent this time. I'm SUPER emotional. More than last time. Heartbeat early on was in the 160's, now I think its more in the 140's and 150's.
So what do you all think? I go Friday for my big ultrasound. I'm 17 weeks now.View Thread
For the past 2 days, I'm noticing that my lower tummy is getting really tight throughout the day and its slightly uncomfortable to push on it. There isn't anything specific that causes it and it lasts awhile. I remember this feeling with my last pregnancy, but I was much farther along. Is that Braxton Hicks? I'm only 17 weeks.View Thread
So today my hormones are in FULL force. I just spent all morning and lunch break at my work crying. Just sitting at my desk and in my car crying. Something silly made me start and then it was down hill from there. I couldn't stop. My boss came by once and just looked at me and I started bawling. When I went to lunch, I thought I could get out of the building without anyone seeing me, but NOPE, 3 people from my work all rode the elevator with me while I sobbed. I had to tell them all I'm pregnant and its hormones. I just had to go in my boss's office after lunch and assure him that its pregnancy hormones and nothing he did. Of course, that made me cry too. Nice! Hopefully its over now, but how embarrassing!!View Thread
So I went to the DR yesterday (not OB) because I was so sick. Found out I have a double ear infection and a sinus infection. Lucky me. She wrote me a scrip for Z-pack, which is safe to take (class .
When I got home around 5, I took 1 tylenol because my ears were killing me. Around 6 after dinner I took my first 2 pills of the Z-pack. Then around 9, I took my Benedryl so I could breathe/sleep and also my prenatal vitamin. Not to mention the 1 sudafed that I took that morning. So in total yesterday I swallowed 6 pills. I feel like I over did it with the meds, but I couldn't help it. What do you guys think? I haven't taken anything this morning, but I really need to take a sudafed.View Thread
My husband is a III, so there are 3 other people alive right now with his same name. Luckily, they all go by different nicknames. But mail sometimes gets mixed up and also the credit bureaus have messed up put things on my husbands credit that belong to my father-in-law. If I have a boy, I'm not naming him the 4th. Enough is enough, lol! But I don't see anything wrong with your situation. Congrats on the great appointment.View Thread
I've been battling a sinus infection head cold thing for a couple of days now and I think its won! My head feels like its about to explode. My ears hurt and I can barely hear out of them anymore. My nose is all stuffed up. Even with Benedryl, I can barely sleep at night because my nose is so stuffed with thick yellow snot (TMI!). I took a Sudafed this morning and its not any better. I'm at work, of course, because I'm taking off Thurs and Fri. I thought my boss would demand I go home, but no. He just reminded me of all the days I'm going to be taking off soon. My DH has a toothache and of course that trumps any sickness I'm feeling. I do have a DR appt scheduled after work. Hope I can make it till then. Just needed to whine. View Thread
