(This post will be all about pregnancy. If you don't feel like reading about that right now, click away. Hope to see you again soon.)
Total Weight Loss/Gain: Down 9 lbs from what I weighed the morning before our embryo transfer.
Maternity Clothes: No.
Stretch marks: I've had stretch marks for years from growth spurts and weight gain. I don't have any new ones related to pregnancy yet.
Sleep: I haven't slept well lately because I've had a cough and congestion from a cold. I continue to be tired nearly all the time.
Movement: I see them moving on my ultrasounds but don't feel it yet.
Cravings/Aversions: No cravings, lots of food aversions. This past weekend was the first time EVER that I've visited my home state of New Mexico and not had green chile. I can't tolerate anything spicy (which is VERY unlike me).
Gender: Don't know yet, too early.
Symptoms: I still have nausea when I don't take my Zo.fran and heartburn when I skip Zantac. Beginning yesterday, I am trying to tough it out without the Zo.fran when I can because the constipation got pretty bad. My breasts are sore/sensitive, and I have occasional mild uterine cramps. I am extremely tired most of the time.
What I miss: Having energy. Being able to enjoy food. Feeling good. Being able to take medications for my cold that actually help me.
What I look forward to: NT scan on August 22. Reaching the second trimester (when I pray this exhaustion and nausea will subside).
Moods: I have felt a little down on occasion lately because of feeling poorly physically and all the things I can't do because I don't have the energy. The thought that I will soon be feeling a little better, at least temporarily, is what keeps me going.
Milestones: I'm told that all our babies major organs are now formed, so that's cool. My biggest personal milestone for this week is that I no longer have to take PIO injections--hooray! (Now maybe all the lumps on my posterior can start to go away.)
Medical concerns: None, thank goodness.
Sex?: Um, no thanks.
