ETA: Not a December mama (October!) but thread stalking and cheering you all on!
I’m jealously stalking this thread in hopes to join later thins month…. just want to say CONGRATS to you all!
How’s everyone feeling today? I guess I’m becoming a very early riser. I thought my usual 5:00 am alarm was way too early, but I’ve been waking up before it goes off. Perhaps it has something to do with having to pee every 30 minutes. Also had this cough come on yesterday afternoon, right in time for my trip today.
I feel a little gassy and my stomach feels weird. Kinda crampy, I guess.
That’s happening to me too with the early morning wakenings! I’m sooo not a morning person, but my schedule has totally flip flopped. This past weekend I woke up around 6am Sat and Sun morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. This morning I woke up at 3:30am and didn’t fall asleep again until a half hour before my alarm. Sooo frusterating! Oddly, I’ve been feeling pretty good when I wake up, so this weekend I just embraced the early wake up and tired to get as much done as possible before the grossness hit in the afternoon. 3:30am is a little much though, I’m not getting out of bed then!
Anyone getting headaches or migraines? The last two nights I’ve had migraines start around 5pm… I’m hoping that’s not a trend! I’ve had issues with migraines in the past and have shots and meds that work well, but I can’t take any of them!!!
Hope everyone is having a good day!
I’ve been up before my alarm every day, too. My DH is sad because this is my only week to sleep in (I work at a school and it’s spring break), so I should be sleeping in, and I just can’t do it. But I actually like mornings okay, so it’s alright with me. However, if my baby really wakes up at 4 a.m. on a regular basis…hm…
Morning, ladies:) I’m sorry some of you are waking up early! It’s like when you work all week, and look forward to sleeping in on the weekend and then wake up at a ridiculous hour bright-eyed and bushy-tailed – Argh! I am kind of flipped, I guess…I’ve been going to bed later (mainly because of reading pg stuff) and then CAN NOT get up in the morning!!!
In other news, I also wanted to share a potentially scary thing that happened to me in case you guys encounter the same thing….I have read that constipation occurs in early pg bc your digestive tract slows down. I haven’t been constipated necessarily, but I haven’t been going every day anymore. There are 1 and 2 day gaps. And not to be Too Much Information, but even though I have to “go”, it’s still hard to! And it has been a little painful. Well getting to the point – I had some bleeding when I wiped. Talk about SCARY! The seconds that it took me to figure out that the blood was NOT coming from my vajay – my heart did not beat, it completely stopped. So anyway, apparently the hard stool (sorry!) and semi-constipation have caused me to have an “anal fissure.” It’s the medical term for a boo boo in my butt! I am not proud of this! But A LONG time ago, the same thing happened to me, and I remembered that after I composed myself. So I have to take stool softeners or something. I’m going to call my doctor and find out what’s safe for pregnancy. Anyway, the worst part is that even after I think I’ve “gotten” everything from wiping, sometimes when I go to use the restroom later to pee, I’ll wipe and I will have a little bit of blood that has leaked out. Sorry so gross, but I am a very open person, and it was so scary that I just wanted to share with you guys so that you don’t panic if it happens to you. I read that anal fissures and hemorrhoids are common in pregnancy and both cause bleeding. Gah! It totally makes me dread going to the bathroom!!!
I do have some GOOD NEWS: My first ultrasound is April 23rd @ 7weeks! Yay! I’m excited and scared!
Attn Other Month Mamas Who Have Taken Crinone or Progesterone:I know some of the farther along mamas (OMG, we are mamas!!) read this thread sometimes, so I have a question about Crinone, the progesterone suppositories: I have been on it since 1 dpo. My pg has always been fine, but when I did injectables they made me take them after O for “extra support.” I had some left over, and we’ve been doing natural cycles since January, and after 2 losses, I figured I needed “extra support” so I put myself on them. I have had mega sore nips since I started, that showed up pretty immediately. Like really sore. And I told myself after I got my BFP that if any of those symptoms disappeared that I would not worry, since they were clearly from the progesterone and occurred before the baby even implantanted. I think they showed up at 2DPO. Well, I said that. But this morning my nips were noticeably less sore and I can’t help but worry! Has anyone else been on Crinone and found that their body got used to it and their side effects subsided? I read on several websites that the side effects would lessen as your body gets used to the meds. I have been on it for a little over 2 weeks….Is this what happening? I can’t help but be scared that one of my main “symptoms” really backed off! I even took another digital this morning – just in case!!! Please advise!
Also, I haven’t taken progesterone, but I can imagine that your body could get used to it and your side effects could lessen… I mean, that happens with other meds…
My boobs are still perfectly happy/not sore… I googled the heck out that one and it seems that it’s normal for some people. So maybe without the supplements yours wouldn’t have hurt anyway?
