Hi all! Back from our trip now. It was beautiful in the archipelago, with nothing to do on an island but grill, chill, and swim. Two weeks left of work until long summer break :)
Welcome Chilichiki! Glad to see a new face. The pure joy of things finally working after so long trying is even sweeter shared with other women who have lived through the same thing. The problems you had in your first pregnancy PICC, hypermesis, are unfamiliar to me. What are the chances that you'd have trouble again? Hoping for the best!
Sorry to hear that Sweetbee and Anna and contactmaya aren't feeling so well. And Sweetest and Chili are both having butt problems (in totally different ways)! It'll be interesting to hear what your Dr. says about that. Chili, no constipation here. Even after having taken the iron pills for a week that are supposed to cause it.
I am feeling totally and utterly exhausted. More so than last time, I think. I am also ravenously hungry, and if I don't satiate my hunger immediately, I start to feel sick and faint and am almost unable to stand. i'm getting just slightly concerned about the amount of weight I will inevitably gain if I keep this up and don't have energy to exercise. Today I ate: Full-fat yogurt with bananas, nuts, raisins, and granola, juice, tea, a cheese sandwich, three bananas, two apples and two kiwis (desparate attempt to stave off hunger with something healthy), couscous salad, butter-fried cod with potatoes and dill sauce (two different lunches -- one at 10.30 and one at 1 p.m.), a chocolate ice cream cone, a small bag of almonds, half my daughter's dinner (broccoli, cauliflower, pasta, chicken), then my dinner (tomato salad, brown rice and baked tofu in a yummy sauce), and Coco Crispies for desert. It's 8 p.m. now, and if I'm going to stay up until 9:30 or so, I'll need to have another snack. I don't generally struggle with weight, but I do generally get a good amount of exercise. Well, for now I'm just going to have to listen to what my body wants (or the hungry little critter inside my body) and see what happens.
How are you all doing on the romance front? (Obviously, too personal a question for many -- so just ignore if you like!). I'm not feeling the slightest bit romantic. I'm not sure if it's the hormones, or the energy level, or both. I also feel like I spent the last 18 months trying to keep a healthy and warm love life going on even as I had to "force" myself to get in the mood on certain fertil days (even if I wasn't really feeling it), that maybe taking an extended breather right now is good for me to get my mojo back working properly. If things go the way they did last time, I should be back in the ring soon and dh had better watch out!
