Week 11: Isn’t It Suppose To Get Better?

1 Comment

Weight: 113lbs
Symptoms: Bloating, tiredness, indigestion, constipation
Attitude: Ugh

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.

  1. I thought the same thing things will get better and some days I think that things get worse then better. Hopefully for you it will be all better days!
