officially 2nd trimester!

May 5, 2008 at 7:15 am 4 comments

I find it hard to write posts lately because it has been the same thing for the last few months … I’m sick, I’m tired, I’m feeling like a hormonal bag of doggy doo.  And like I need to keep writing that every day?  So instead I’m going to write point form what is going RIGHT and what could be going BETTER…

Positives

  • I’m officially into my 2nd trimester… yay!
  • I am sleeping better for now – the acid in my throat has abated for a few days
  • I’m not NEAR as exhausted – the 1st trimester fatigue is lifting – feels good
  • I’m actually LOOKING pregnant now and people are noticing the “bump” so it feels more real
  • The vomitting has become much less, the nausea is way more tolerable
  • I’m able to take care of Sweetlove more again – giving him baths, doing the laundry, etc.
  • My work is being amazingly understanding about my situation and allowing me to work from home when I can and my paycheque is only slightly affected.
  • My blood pressure was “beautiful” at my last doc appt on Friday and it was at this point last time that I was put on BP meds so this makes me MOST ECSTATIC!
  • I’m starting to believe this might actually happen for us and it feels kind of… good?

Could be better

  • I have IBS and it has been in high gear these last few months – I go between total constipation and ridiculous diahrrea with nothing in between, ugh!
  • I am a burping farting machine … and I’m the girl who is always disgusted by anyone doing such rude behaviors around me.  It’s karma.
  • I thought by now the nausea and vomitting would have gone away but alas, I’m still dealing with it and while it is BETTER I still can’t do much – I am thankful it is better though.

We decided not to do the trip.le scre.en test for do.wn’s – I’m such a worrier and really, if this baby is dow.n’s it would not make a difference to us as far as continuing the pregnancy so why worry about it at this point?

It is driving me totally batty that I don’t have any proof of this baby being alive for the past 5 weeks though.  I rented a doppler but still can’t find the heartbeat myself.  Doc is going to check for it at my next appt but that’s not for another week and a half.  I guess its a good sign I am still full of symptoms but you just never know.

    Happy 2nd Trimester! I hope that relief is right around the corner.

    The burping and farting? Me too. Unfortunately, I haven’t stopped postpartum. Unless my mom is around. In which case, I control myself.

    Awesome! Great news!

    Nice to see updates. I will be back to see that everything went well at the doc’s next week.

    UGH…I had hemrroids with Chloe (not pretty)…LOL! TMI, but I had to throw that in there considering you were sharing…HA HA!!

    Hope that things level out for you in that dept.

    Thinking of ya!

    Exciting to be in the 2nd tri already; these things always seem to go fast when you’re watching from the outside.!! Glad to hear the MS is better; you give me hope for my daughter; she is really struggling with it. Will keep watching for updates following the Doctor Appt. Good luck with everything!
