So I'm getting a little "thicker" but not really a "bump" yet. I cannot fit into any of my old pants or shorts though....so I'm wearing as many elastic-waist skirts as I can. (I only have one pair of maternity shorts...do not want to go and spend the money on more since we should be getting into cooler weather soon, right?) That's what I'm praying for...it has been blazing here in NC.
I had my progesterone levels drawn today and based on what they are, I think we will be stopping the PIO shots after my next 2 doses. That was the impression I had gotten from Dr. C (NaPro). So I am awaiting the results...and a little nervous about stopping them, I have to admit. My level at 8weeks 3days was 41.5.
I am having a bit of a problem that I had during weeks 13ish-16ish with Mary Grace's pregnancy....and that is my stubbornly tilted uterus (retroverted) refuses to right itself and starts pressing on my areas around my bladder causing me to be unable to relieve myself....uh yeah, it's as frightening as it sounds especially when you have a full bladder. During Mary Grace's pregnancy I had to resort to self-cathing (umm....just as bad as it sounds!)....but when I started having that feeling this pregnancy I scoured the internet looking for an alternative. Luckily there is a stretch/exercise/position that I am able to do that temporarily rights my uterus so that I can urinate....lovely, huh? I am so thankful we have not had to go the other route, and praying that my uterus will find it's rightful, righted home soon. This is really only happening at night....so my sleep position must be contributing to the uterus flopping back the wrong way?? Just guessing here...
Nausea has been less, but still here and there....resulting in lots of food aversions. Oh and I didn't even know it could be possible to have these this early, but I swear I've already been having some Braxton Hicks contractions...about 1 or 2 a day for the last 3 days. Really surprised me and hopefully it is not something to be concerned about even though it seems super early for those.
My next appointment is on Monday. We are having another look at the cyst and I guess this will decide whether we schedule surgery or whether there is no need at this time. And immediately after that is our NT scan; yay! Another peek at Baby H!
I have been so bad about following blogs lately, and obviously about updating my own! These last three weeks have also started the beginning of homeschooling Isabel, so between the nausea and schooling and oh the rest of everyday life, I've just fallen behind! ;)
