According to my own calculations, I should be around 7 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I suppose everything is going well in the pregnancy. For now, I just have to kind of guess at how things are going. Honestly, this is kind of a weird time because I feel like it will be a long time before I have a real doctor appointment where I actually will have any real clue of how baby is doing.
For now, I trust and pray that baby is fine seeing as how I am feeling miserable. I am so tired all of the time. I'm finding it especially hard to stay awake during 4th block at school. I wish my boss would designate me a nap time so that I could then make it through the end of the day. Ha! That would be nice. Honestly, my main symptom is being tired. I was having bad nausea and some vomiting yesterday. The day before that I felt it coming and going. For now, I have found that taking my anti-nausea medicine in conjunction with ginger ale is working for me. But I'll say that, when I woke up this morning and the medicine had worn off, I could definitely feel it. It wasn't as bad as yesterday. However, I'm finding that my symptoms can be all over the place and some days are worse than others.
A new symptom that I seem to have acquired is dizziness. I get that lightheaded feeling every time I stand up, and I still feel dizzy often when I walk around. Unfortunately, with all of these things, I'm experiencing quite a bit of moodiness. Poor Lee...I'm trying to control it, but some days I just feel so grumpy. I sound like a great person to be around right now...tired, sick, grumpy. It isn't THAT bad all the time; it's just the side-effects of pregnancy.
Something that is odd to me is that it's hard for me to feel like baby is doing okay when I am feeling so awful. Nausea and vomiting are supposed to be signs of a healthy pregnancy, but it goes against intuition to feel that all is well when you feel like passing out. I keep thinking, "How can baby be doing fine if I am not and baby is living off of me?" That's just one of the miracles of life that I won't understand. I am just glad that I am having these symptoms in a way because they are reassurance to me. And I do hope they keep on until I am in the clear for a healthy first trimester.
They are more than welcome to leave with the second trimester gets here. ;)
