Well, as some of you may know I was dealing with a LOT of nausea and heartburn. I spoke to my doctor's office and they recommended taking 50 mg of a B6 supplement twice a day for the nausea. I took it for 3 or 4 days before it finally started providing some relief.
The bad nausea I was having is better but I still have my good and bad periods throughout the day. Mornings can be tough because I'm supposed to eat breakfast. Problem is that I've never been a breakfast kind of girl - my stomach just does not like food that early. So I'm battling over whether to force myself to eat or feel horrible because I haven't eaten. I've been drinking my breakfast for years (Carnation Instant Breakfast) but it's not enough right now. So I'm doing the best I can dealing with that until I've been up for a couple of hours.
We saw my OB for our first visit yesterday. That was good. I have to go to the lab to give some blood but otherwise it was pretty much what I expected. Pee in a cup, weight, blood pressure, 20-questions, etc. It was all pretty routine...based on my experiences with my 16-year-old. They said they'll see me in a month unless there are any problems with the test results. I don't expect any problems now - we're 10 1/2 weeks and everything is pretty normal.
She tried to get the heartbeat on the Dopplar but not much luck. She said she usually doesn't have any problems at 12 weeks so maybe next visit we'll get a good listen.
I haven't been doing much besides eat, sleep, work and get my schoolwork done. I've been spending very little time on the computer at night because I'm just so tired. I'm hoping the 2nd trimester will turn things around a bit so I can start exercising again. All I want to do is walk on a treadmill but right now I only have energy to sit on the couch in the evenings!
Not that I'm complaining (much), I'm so happy to be where I am!! I've waited SO LONG for this. The purpose of this blog is to just let you know why you haven't seen much of me.
Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
