12 weeks 4 days: Not much going on in pregnancy world today. I've had a relatively quite day, Bee kicked a couple of times which was nice. The nauseous feelings have subsided back to what they were before. I'm finding I can eat a bit more then I have been able to. The one thing I am noticing is the gallbladder is starting to act up from time to time. It hit hard at 4 months with both boys and I won't be surprised if it's early with this one. It hit today after I had some oreos...it made me sad, I like oreos (but only the mini kind, I don't like the full size) and I'll be sad if I have to stop eating them because of my gallbladder. We may look into getting it out after this pregnancy because after Jacob I was still having problems with it. But that is the only new thing. Oh and my body seems to think 5am is perfectly an acceptable time to get up....eye eye eye (for the life of me I can't think of how to properly spell that, ai iy....you get the point) That's all there is to report today....work is keeping me distracted so I'm not really thinking about our next appointment yet which is good, its keeping my mind busy and away from all the anxiety and fear it could be diving into. I did get the two days off though, for our next appointment I have the morning off so I can go to our appointment and then go to counseling and then on the 29th I took the whole day off. Well I planned on it as a previous commitment and thankfully I can still take it. I figured we'd need it either to cry because something is wrong or be happy and celebrate!
12 weeks 5 days: I can't believe I am almost at 13 weeks, this week has gone by really fast and I hope with working they all will. Another thing with this pregnancy I had with both boys is tremendous back pain. I was in a car accident in 2004 and my back has never been the same since. It generally is okay but I found while pregnant it just kills. I really need to book a massage appointment....Groupon needs to send me some deals because I cant afford the real price!
Also, I do not understand why I crave McDonalds so much while I am pregnant. I can't stand the place when I am not pregnant and never eat there but with all 3 pregnancies I have craved McDonald's and I feel horrible because its crap but sometimes I have to give into the urge. Lets just say I will be downing a couple bowls of fruit after dinner tonight. I just don't get why I crave it so much only during pregnancy. I really wish I didn't but my body is weird like that. I don't feel bad for the calorie aspect because I'm still at a 1lb gain and that is not a lot. I'm trying to eat lots of small things throughout the day to help increase my food intake as I cannot eat a lot all at once or I get sick. And most of it is fruit, turkey sausage, hard boiled eggs and cheese, yogurt, more fruit, celery pb and raisins, so not a lot of unhealthy stuff but not a lot of food. I haven't been able to eat much with sustenance. Perhaps when the progesterone is done Friday it will level out with all my other hormones over the next week and I'll feel better. Enough so that I can eat at least. Thankfully I can still drink water like there is no tomorrow so I have been staying very hydrated!
I've been doing a good job at hiding my belly this week at work but today's shirt may have left some room for imagination. I don't have that many shirts that are so big that you can't tell I have a bump and most of my shirts hug my bump and there's no denying it. I'd like to make it another 3 weeks before I announce it. I still need to get my feelers out to see how it may be received. There's not much I can do anyways but at least if I impress them a lot then they will feel like they still made the right decision for the long term goals.
Bee had a nice strong kick on the way home, I think Stephen will be able to feel her a lot sooner then he did with the boys. It's nice and reassuring for me because with Jacob I didnt feel him kick until around 20 weeks due to the lack of fluid so it's nice this time that I already feel them. I just hope they keep up until our next appointment (August 15th)
Not much else going on, feeling a bit sick tonight, may be another gravol night....we'll see how it goes and how much of dinner stays down. I think I should go lay down for a bit and let everything gel together in my tummy.
