I'm trying this for the first time (writing in a online journal that is). This is my second pregnanacy-but the first one was 7 1/2 years ago. I'm already 10 weeks-ha! already seems like forever already.
Let me try to start from the beginning.
My DH and I met at work in 2000. We started dating, followed by a practice run for a year and got married this April 2004. We started looking to buy a house and I went of BCP at the same time. Figuring both would take a while. BAM! We closed on a house and a week later I found out I was pregnant.
I started feeling that hangover feeling a week before AF was to come. I knew something was up right away. Took the test and called my DH-It is! It's true I knew it. "What?" he asked. "Look!" I showed him the stick. He quickly grabbed it from me and studied it. "Do you pee on this?" Ha never mind the 2 pink lines!
We were so happy we did it, but that quickly changed to that feeling I remembered so well! I hope everything will be ok with the baby. Oh yeah that constant worrying that the baby is ok. I had forgot about that. That feeling combined with the feeling of total sickness. That all over sickness. That feeling you get right before you're gonna get sick only its ALL THE TIME! I would wake up in the morning knowing I had a 45 minute commute, get my 7 1/2 year old up and ready for school, and a full day of work ahead of me. YUCK!! I don't like this. I remembered. Only this time I had a 7 year old to think about.
The days seemed to drag. The weeks aren't going by fast enough. What only 7 weeks??
Then on the 9th week my body changed. My pants were already too tight. What the heck? This didn't happen until I was well into my 3rd month the first time. What the heck is going on?? Was God playing a cruel joke on my because I waited until I was 35 to have this one? Now not only did I feel totally yucky in the morning, I had to deal with finding something to wear and be comfortable in for 15 hours!
Oh I'm so Tired! I do remember one thing from my first. Things change IT DOES GET BETTER! Please 2nd timester come! Rescue me from this.
So ten weeks and counting. I've already had 2 U/S which I did not have with my first. Boy have things changed. I never got to see my bean that small before. At least my mind is at ease and I even saw the heart beating away at only 8 weeks. I had to wait till 12 to know I everything was moving along with my first.
M/S is getting a little better (at least it comes and goes away for a while)-but I do feel like I could sleep for 5 days straight!
I'll post again when I have something to add
