I had forgotten about the tired. Or maybe the all-day-sickness was so all-consuming before that I maybe didn't have the chance to feel tired. This time, I'm feeling nauseous every day for parts of the day, but I'm unfortunately NOT losing weight as I have with both of my other term pregnancies. I am, however, feeling tired ALL THE TIME. (Maybe the fact that I can hardly move because of the exhaustion is contributing to my weight gain. Haha.) I've only gained between two and three pounds, but with each other pregnancy I've lost about 5 in the first trimester because of the nausea. I did start out lower this time though, so I guess that's good.
But seriously? Ohhhhhhh the tired. I've been taking naps. NAPS people. I don't take naps. I can't fall asleep in the middle of day. Except that now, I can. Naps. Thankfully E takes a 2 hour nap in the afternoon, and D is more than happy to watch a movie so I can take a nap. Can't wait for that energy burst...
I'm still taking progeste.rone, so maybe that accounts for some of the tiredness. I'm planning to stop taking that on Saturday when I'll be 11 weeks. The R.E. who I saw told me to take it for three more weeks, which was until yesterday, but I'm going to keep going until the weekend just because it will make me feel better.
I broke out the Doppler last week when I was 9 weeks 5 days (my latest miscarriage) and it took me a long time to find the heartbeat, but it was there. I checked again this week, I think on Monday when I was 10w 2d. Took a long time again, but I found it. I freaking love that thing. Best money spent, ever. Hands down.
Now a bit of randomness. Have any of you ever had one breast that was sore, but not the other? Before I was even pregnant, I noticed that my left side was more tender/ sensitive than the right. I've done several self exams and haven't felt anything unusual, but I'm thinking I'm going to run it by my OB. It kind of freaks me out.
I have the nu.chal scan coming up in a couple weeks, and truthfully I'm pretty nervous about it. On my second set of bloodwork with E, one of my results came back high and I ended up getting a Level II u/s and an amnio. The fact that I'm older now, and officially "advanced maternal age" doesn't help those nerves.
I'm definitely more relaxed about this pregnancy than my pregnancy with E. I don't obsess about every twinge I feel and I don't think about miscarriage all the time. I guess that's an improvement, and once I'm not so tired maybe I'll have a little time to enjoy it.
