I have a 3 year old whose birthday is April 3rd, and so my two babes will be 4 years apart. I am thrilled about this pregnancy although it was unplanned. Not sure if anyone read my post in the I'm Pregnant forum but I have been suffering from GERD and an inflamed esophagus for several months before getting pregnant. I wanted to heal before I got pregnant, but the universe had different plans for me!
Just went in for the ultrasound yesterday to determine how far along I am since I have irregular periods. I am apparently 6 weeks 6 days today. Honestly I believed I was an entire week further along, so getting that news was a little devastating, since it means I have an extra week of hard work to do in the first trimester. Things have been getting so intense already... the nausea, the fatigue, body aches and an overall feeling of bleh. I haven't vomited yet but I'm so tired of feeling grossed out by every meal I prepare and the smell of the fridge. I just want to enjoy eating again!
On top of all of this I am sometimes spitting up blood from my inflamed esophagus. It's beyond gross and disturbing.
So I am here for emotional support as I navigate this journey with a mysterious future... my heartburn could just get worse and worse from here, and I'm not sure how I will make it through unscathed.
Thank you for being here for me.
