Reached the 8 week mark today. Only 7 months to go. 🙂 Still seems so far away.
Nausea update: Been trying my hardest to not take anything for the nausea. So that basically means that I have to eat something every hour. Even if it is just a bite or two of something. Been doing pretty well with that. A single-serve greek yogurt (with fruit) or an apple or thanks to a friend who mentioned it in one of her comments a while back, Cheetos. If I have something “bad” I always make sure to eat something good to balance it out. Isn’t that how you do it? Kind of like ordering a big mac and a diet coke. LOL
And as far as the blockage issue . . . I think it has been solved by not taking any Zofran. You have no idea how relieved I am knowing that things are moving along as they should. I still take Colace at night and I might for some time. But it is safe and much better than the alternative.
I had a question for those of you who have been pregnant or are currently pregnant. Last night and more so today I have been experiencing some pain. It isn’t really like cramping pain but it feels like some muscle pain in my lower abdomen, below the belly button but on the sides; left and right. I was wondering if this is what they call round ligament pain. From the things I have read, this mostly shows up in the 2nd and 3rd trimester, but I think you can get this in the 1st as well. Any thoughts on this?
Other than that, the only pain I have is from the stress I went through Sunday. I think part of my lower back is out. I get a shooting pain down my right buttock. Feels like I need to pop my lower back or my hip might be out. Is it safe to visit a chiropractor? I guess I could Dr. Google, but curious what you all think. I will ask at my appointment on Friday. Hoping it kind of corrects itself.
Did a little work in my flower garden today. Well, there are no flowers yet, but hoping to get to that Friday. I dug out some of the weeds and put some new garden soil in. The ground was so hard I had to water it a bit to loosen the dirt around the weeds. Doing that little bit of work, really took it out of me. It is supposed to rain here tomorrow, so I am counting on that to make the soil easier to work with. I will then get some flowers and hopefully plant them Friday. We are actually having some cool weather for the next few days so I hope to take advantage of it. Then once I get that done I will work on the vegetable garden.
Thanks for reading.
