So behind on here, per usual.
Kredmon, so sorry to hear about your loss. :( I hope you and your partner are coping well...
I love all of the pics! So cute...
So, the nausea I was looking for has come, but it's not too bad and doesn't happen often, and does indeed go away if I eat something. I finished my round of antibiotics, and I feel like my fever is totally gone, but I'm left with this massive headache I've had now for almost 10 days. I think it's tension headaches - they go away for a bit every day but come back with a vengeance. Today, I've had it ALL DAY. Usually the mornings are better... but today, I've been miserable all day. I just want to sleep because then I don't feel it. I even got a massage today - it felt okay during the massage but came back as soon as I got up off the table. It's MADDENING. I forget what it's like to feel well. I've taken Tylenol (not with regularity), and it doesn't TOUCH IT. There's seriously nothing that helps. I'm with my RE until 9.5 weeks (which is not this week but next), but I'm speeding up my search for an ob/gyn to see if I can get in and just be reassured that my brain isn't imploding or anything. Gah! I'm also already HOT a lot of the time, which I thought didn't happen until later in pregnancy? Man, people aren't kidding when they say the first 3 months kind of suck!! Still - totally thrilled and grateful!
The good news is - they've liberalized my sister's visits with my niece (we've been fostering her since she was released from the hospital at 2 wks old in Sept), so I won't be left at home alone with the baby nearly as much. It's awful enough having this headache - it's unbearable when there's a kid screaming in your ear. Also good news - she was supposed to go home in April, but now it looks like she'll go home beginning of February! I love her dearly but this is perfect timing. I just don't feel well and I know I'm not 100 percent for her anymore. It's hard to face the fact, but I just feel so crappy and terrible all the time. It'll be good for me AND my baby for me to start being the fun auntie to my niece instead of the foster mommy - and more importantly, it'll be SO GOOD for my sister to have her back. She aches for her.
Anyone else have the headaches during the first trimester? Wondering if it's the hormone shots? I only have 2 more weeks on them. WOOT.
