What a neat conception story! I am really glad you got your thyroid under control on your own -- I hate endocrinologists!
(The rest of the story is coming later, maybe today, maybe tomorrow.... I think I gave y'all enough to read for now )
Awesome Connie! That is so exciting I am glad you got things figured out. Our bodies really are complex and trying to figure them out baffling sometimes! I am looking forward to the next 'installment'!
Hope you are feeling well! I've enjoyed reading your lodge so far, I hope I can stay caught up!

Okay, so I still owe y'all the next installment, but I haven't had a chance to get to it quite yet! Maybe after the weekend....
For the past 2 days I've been having what I guess are some more intense BH. Whenever I'm standing up, my stomach feels tight, and when I touch it, it's definitely hard! Then when I sit down, it gets better. I don't know if it's BH or just him running out of room in there! So far it's a little annoying, but not painful or anything.
The heartburn is another thing altogether! I woke up with it during the night last night (again) even after taking a Pepcid. It seems like anything I eat or drink the past couple days is giving me heartburn. Coinciding with these more intense BH or whatever it is. I wonder if this baby is just growing again and he's reached the point where he's really pushed my stomach into my lower throat LOL Jesse and I both think my stomach looks bigger than it did at the beginning of the week too....
Hey Connie - I think we had a growth spurth as well. I am definitely poking out there! And I can totally sympathize about the heartburn - I had to get the Tums out the other day even!
Connie - I look forward to reading more about your pregnancy - your stories are great
I have been having the baby pressing on my stomach lately too - not acid/heartburn yet - but reflux and burping.... It's so annoying! i hope that you get some sleep and no heartburn tonight!
Oh, I hate the heartburn! I hope he moves down a bit for you soon! Looking forward to the next installment!

Bad recipe for this weekend - everything with the pediatrician dropping us + not nearly enough sleep! Friday night we went to my best friend's house and I ended up staying up all night. I mean, the sun was up when we left! Then when we got home it was at least another hour before I went to bed because DH and I were in a deep discussion. I did get some sleep though.
Friday night I had what I guess were some intense BH while we were gone. They didn't really have a stop or start, although they did get better and worse. I was so wishing I had my birthing ball with me to sit on for a while! They were bad enough that I had to consciously breathe through them sometimes. And some of them radiated down into my pelvis for the first time. Maybe they were starting me dilating/effacing??? Once I went to sleep, they went away. Yesterday they started up again, at about the same time of day as Friday and the days before that.
Last night was pretty rough. I woke up every hour to hour and a half to go to the bathroom, and each time I got up I was hurting! I couldn't stand up straight. Then I'd get to the bathroom and go a bit, but I still hurt a bit afterwards. That was a first! Usually once I empty the bladder I feel MUCH better. I woke up hot off and on, couldn't stay comfortable, and when I woke up today I still have the BH! This is the first time I've woken up with them. I'm hoping they'll get better if I can get a good (or at least decent ) night's sleep tonight!
Okay, enough whining! LOL Off to church!
Sorry that you are so uncomfy Connie, but perhaps things are moving in the right direction for you?? I'm hoping your body is progressing!
