I missed my 11 week symptom check-in yesterday because I was feeling like total crap all day. We’re on vacation this week, which means I can get more rest and don’t have to pretend I feel good for the sake of my work colleagues. Unfortunately, I feel pretty shitty most days so haven’t been able to totally enjoy being on holidays.
For the past few days, I’ve been reeling from the news of my sister’s pregnancy. I think it’s finally starting to sink in. I’m hoping that the next couple of weeks go by quickly and that I’ll feel a little more relaxed (and able to process everything) once I’m into the second trimester.
Symptoms-wise, things haven’t really changed much this week…
Nausea: The nausea has been pretty intense this week. It will hit me at any time of the day, so I can never really plan accordingly. Some mornings are ok, others are pretty bad. I feel pretty consistently bad every evening though.
Vomiting: None to date.
Food cravings or aversions: I was dying for this cream cheese/jalapeno dip that my sister makes. She brought it to the farm on the long weekend and I gobbled it up. I made another batch for our friends who came to visit. Soooo good!
Aches and Pains: I still have randomly sore boobs. Last night the left one was throbbing, but sometimes they feel relatively normal. I’ve had a headache for the past two days, which is major pain (no pun intended!) Tylenol is useless, so I’m just getting used to dealing with the pain.
Fatigue: Still really brutal. We had a rough week of Littleman being up in the night every couple of hours. Luckily, being on vacation means I can nap during the day. I feel exhausted pretty much all the time, whether I nap or not.
Other: My stomach/bowel issues seem to be getting better and I’ve definitely been more “regular”. I’ve started to notice that I’m getting quite bloated these days – especially by later in the day.
