Hello Week 9.
This week I bought new, bigger jeans. While my old ones still technically fit, the waistband fell right across my heparin bruises, which wasn't particularly pleasant. Seems the waistband may have also been making the bruises worse, as I no longer have the dark multi-cooler bruises, but just subtle brown ones. Guess we'll see if this is just a cycle.
Had a major scare on Saturday. I was cramping on and off most of the day and spotted a TINY bit of red after going to the bathroom. When it was there after a second bathroom trip, I panicked. Full on weeping, etc. It hasn't reappeared since. It truly was the smallest dot ever, and (TMI) I think it may have just been the result of toilet paper rub from so many frequent trips to the bathroom. Here's hoping.
Week nine is when my first baby died—only we didn't know until an ultrasound at week 11. Luckily, the next ultrasound is scheduled for this coming Tuesday, so just under a week away. Really hoping that this little bean is doing well.
Nausea comes and goes. Some days I am mostly fine, other days . . . not so much.
