I am wondering whether anyone else has been in a similar situation to mine and how they handled it.
As you know, we recently found out I am pregnant. I am only 5 weeks along, and though we have had two good, rising betas, pregnancy won't be confirmed via ultrasound until July 11. We all know that, even when the pregnancy is a result of using eggs from a young donor, many things can still go wrong at this stage.
My dilemma is my husband. I love him, and he is a great guy. He is doing something that is starting to drive me nuts, though.
He quizzes me multiple times a day about whether I am having "symptoms," whether I am drinking my water (I regularly drank 2-3 liters a day before I was pregnant and continue to do so), what I'm eating, and whether I am overexerting myself. While I think it's sweet that he is concerned about my well-being, I think he is getting a little ridiculous.
I am a mature, 40-year-old woman who generally takes pretty good care of herself. I don't usually eat a lot of processed foods, even when not pregnant, and I am not an exercise fanatic who regularly pushes herself and works out for long periods. In short, I don't think his monitoring of my behavior is necessary.
I am as aware as MM of the potential effects of my actions on our embryos, and I want just as much for this pregnancy to progress and bring us a healthy baby at the end. I understand that his behavior stems from his anxiety and feelings of lack of control, but I am getting a bit tired of being grilled and being reminded five times a day that I have "precious cargo on board."
Any suggestions on how to handle this from those who've been there, done that?
