I need a place to talk about pregnancy on here, I want to keep track of everything that is going on somewhere! A pregnancy part of my blog sounds interesting enough. Keeping track of everything going on sounds like a plan to me! A girl also needs a place to share her feelings when no one else understands! Right?
Oh wow, I was getting worried because I had major cramps on my left side last week. I called my doctor and I got into an ultra sound that day. I was nervous because I didn’t not want to see something, but I also needed to make sure that I was not starting to have a miscarriage, again. My mom was able to take me, Andrew could not get out of work. Luckily we saw the sac, and yolk sac, but were unable to see a heart beat because I was only 5 weeks 6 days pregnant. The ultra sound tech told me not to worry, it is rare to see a heart beat that early.
I started to get worried because I was not feeling pregnant, except for the cramps. My doctor called the next day to inform me that the cramps on my left side were there because I have a cyst on my left ovary. She told me that I do not need to worry, the ovary was trying to let go of an egg, but I was pregnant so obviously that wasn’t going to happen. She also said that is how the progesterone is made and everything looked good. I was measuring about 4 days behind what I thought my dates were, but again, she said it is waaaay too early to even think about that, 4 days is nothing in the early stages. I have another ultra sound June 1st to make sure that everything is okay, I will be in my 8th week so that there should be a nice strong heart beat. Of course I am scared… “what if there isn’t a heart beat” because if there isn’t, that would be a 100% miscarriage. I do not want to go through that again, but again, we will have to deal with that on the 1st.
Well, Saturday brought me to 6 weeks 3 days pregnant. I woke up just not feeling good. I ate and got nauseous, but held everything down. Then we went to my moms and I just felt horrible. I ate dinner there, and then it hit….and I didn’t keep it down. The rest of the day anything I ate didn’t stay down….Sunday, 6 weeks 4 days….nothing stayed down (except dinner)….and now as I am sitting here blogging I am sitting on iced coffee and hoping it stays down.
Morning sickness isn’t like an upset stomach, the way I describe it, being on a boat and having that feeling in the back of your throat all day. It is more in my head than anything…..but “not in my head” if that makes sense.
Wow….ya, that has been my life the past few days…holding down some puke….oh, and I haven’t even mentioned school yet….but that is another post.
I am 6 weeks 5 days pregnant today…almost at the 7 week mark…and everything is going good….the morning sickness seems to calm my nerves because I know my HCG levels are high enough to make me sick….now the waiting game until the 1st….but I will stay strong.
