Flip Flopping

That seems to be what I've been doing since last night. Between thinking things are going great to thinking something is wrong. I guess it started because last night I felt better than I had in a few weeks. I was able to eat, even though I couldn't decided on anything and just forced myself to pick, and I ate quite a bit. But I didn't have any indigestion or heartburn after, which I suppose could be from sitting up for so long after. But I guess what bothers me the most is that I am noticing no changes in my breasts. Some times I will get some pains in them, but they are never sore to the touch or anything, and they certainly aren't growing. I guess this bothers me the most because they didn't last time either. I suppose it could be too early, but the WTE book says typically a full cup size in the first month. I guess I'm just not sure what they consider the first month to be. 4 week gestation maybe? They don't really say. One other thing that is probably way too much information is that my bowels have been kinda loose the last two days, when I was kinda constipated before. Could this just be the lack of food and the increase in water?

On the other hand, my numbers are quite good I guess (based on dr.), I still feel sick when I wake up in the night, I have that nasty taste in my mouth and I have a stretching feeling in my nether regions (which I can understand cause I can believe how swollen looking it is). I also have that heavy bloated feeling in my whole stomach. Oh and did I mention emotional?

Last night the tiredness hit me around 6:30 or 7. I was texting my best friend back and forth and all of a sudden I didn't even want to pick up my phone let alone press buttons. At 8 I went and brushed the teeth and used that terrible yeast infection cream. By 9 I was asleep. Problem was I woke up for the 3rd time at 11:45. I just laid there and cried. Twice was because B elbowed me in the back and the other time I just woke up. It's terrible, all I want is a good nights sleep. Luckily for the first time in a week, I got 4 straight hours of sleep after that. Tonight after work I will be going to look at new mattresses. There is no way we are going to continue sleeping in that bed if my belly is going to get bigger!

So here I sit, willing Peanut to grow and wishing I could sleep until September 19th.


  1. Your symptoms will come and go a lot throughout the first trimester. I know. I had the exact same worries. You can read earlier in my blog to see them. I was terrified if I didn't feel as nauseous. Or if my constipation suddenly went away. And if my boobs didn't quite feel as sore. I'm not saying your worries aren't normal an justified. But just wanted to add that waxing and waning symptoms can be very normal.

  2. Hang in there-those symptoms sound like no fun :(

    Sorry you're not feeling well, but at least the end result is going to be a great reward!
