I had a pretty rough day today. First off, it's my husband's birthday. Everything is going great in our lives. I am working a pretty long week (50 hours down and 10 to go) and it's all on my feet. SO I'm trying to get extra sleep. Well last night I didn't wake up to go to the bathroom at my normal time and woke up all cramped up from holding it too long. I get to work and I'm getting a weird pressure and sharp pains somewhere "down there". It starts to scare me so I go to the bathroom and of course everything is fine. The pains and pressure continue for about 4 hours and I just start sobbing. Not a few tears, full fledged sobbing. SO I excuse myself and go sit in the car to cry for 5 minutes or so. Not sure why I'm crying. I wasn't THAT scared of the pains. This is my first pregnancy to make it past 8 weeks and I'm still terrified of losing again. But I'm only 2 days away from the 2nd trimester. I also am being weaned off my progesterone suppositories so I don't know if that is enough change in hormone to make me lose my grip with reality? I proceeded to have 1 more sobfest at the end of the day when one of the co-workers lectured me on changing my attitude and trying to enjoy the pregnancy instead of fear it. Not sure why I'm so emotional and not sure what the pressure/pains were. Every day I have different types of pains but have gotten used to most of them. I'm also happy because starting this week my doppler is picking up the heartbeat. Sorry this is so long, really needed to vent and see what you guys think or if you have similar stories. Thanks so much!
