12 weeks 6 days (or 13 weeks according to the Dr): Let's start off with the good. I stopped my progesterone last night and I am hoping that eases my morning sickness a bit in the coming few weeks (we have some Groupons we need to use soon and I need to be able to eat) So how have I felt today? For the most part, the same. No many changes but I don't expect an overnight change. I will say that I did have a bit of an appetite today, I got REALLY hungry at lunch and had to go pick up a baked potato from Wendy's. It was the kind of hunger where it hurts so bad you feel sick. I'll make sure to pack more goodies to eat at work (well I did have some, I just did not feel like eggs today) But I did eat my fruit and yogurt and a baked potato which all had some nutrients. I guess only time will tell now how I will feel now that I am off the progesterone...but trust me, I'm no where near ready to be off diclectin yet, Sundays late night toilet hug proved me that! I'll give it a few more weeks.
So now the downside....I'm really considering having my gallbladder out after I'm done being pregnant (which will be after this one, no matter the outcome) I had it with Ty for a few months and then after he was born I was okay. I had it a few months with Jacob and still had it after he was born. It went away when I got pregnant this time but it is coming back. I guess I'll see how bad it is afterwords. But for now, the terrible pain has set in and I have to monitor what I eat and hope that is enough without pain meds. I have been eating a lot of non-lactose free yogurt this week and perhaps that is it, or the chicken nuggets from lunch today..who knows. I just know to watch it now or pay for my suffering later.
Not much else to report day, we'll see how things go the next few days and if I can rid myself of all morning sickness and gagging in the next few weeks then I will start to wean off the diclectin (and know not to eat pickles) Bee did have another strong kick today and it makes me smile every time because it is a bit of reassurance to me. With Jacob I wasn't feeling much but it was due to his lack of fluid so the more Bee kicks the next few weeks the more reassured I will feel that her fluid level is okay, of course I know 9 million things that can go wrong but somedays I feel this one is ours to keep. This one will be our little miracle!
