Symptoms: Bloating, tiredness, indigestion, constipation
Sorry for the long absence. With work being busy and feeling like crap, I haven’t found a lot of free time to write. “Lucky” for me, my commute just doubled so now I found some free time.
Two weeks ago was my first appointment with the OB’s office. It was a short appointment, mainly for dating the pregnancy. No changes to my expected due date and we got to see the butterBean’s heart beating. I keep thinking that something bad had happened so it’s nice to get some reassurance.
I have a lengthier appointment tomorrow with the OB nurse and a quick check-up with the doctor. I’m sure that’s when I’ll get my prescription for the 3 hour glucose test. But that’s also when I’ll get my prescription for my NT scan, which should be in the beginning of September.
I also had an appointment with my endo. They changed my prescription for my hypothyroidism and gave me the diabetes lecture (my fasting sugars were high) and I have a follow up appointment in 2 months.
Other than that, I’ve been feeling like crap. My stomach likes to confuse me – I can rarely tell these days if I should eat cause I feel hungry but my stomach is so bloated that I couldn’t possibly fit anything in there. And the constipation!
I feel terrible feeling like this, especially given everything I’ve gone through to get here. Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather be stopped up than giving myself shots! But I have to vent somewhere!
I’ve got 2 weeks until this trimester is over. Hopefully it’ll breeze by and I won’t even remember how uncomfortable I’m feeling now.
