Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays! It can be tough with the early pregnancy symptoms. We had a nice holiday, the kids got way too many presents. I had a dream last night that I was having a miscarriage and that was upsetting. I remember having a dream of that sort when I was pregnant with my daughter, too. This one was a lot different, I think it was caused by anxiety of having our first ultrasound tomorrow. I'm excited about that! We are also doing the harmony screening, so within a few weeks I would imagine we'll know if we're adding a sister or brother to the family! I'm very excited. I usually have a strong intuition (and was right both times) and this time I don't really feel so sure. I was positive it was a girl at first, and then positive it was a boy two weeks ago, and now I'm back to mentally stopping myself from saying "she". I made the appointment so DH could go see the ultrasound with me, but last night one of his teeth started hurting and he is in excruciating pain right now. He has a lot of problems with his teeth, but I've never seen him in so much pain. It's really difficult to not be able to do anything. I am hoping we can get him in for a root canal asap, but that means I'll probably be going to the appointment alone, which is a bummer. And it was the only appointment they had until next year, which is when my good insurance ends and my secondary with have to take over. No fun.
I also have a big cold sore on my lip. I hate it! I don't know what you can do in pregnancy, so I'm going to text my midwife tomorrow and hopefully they'll be able to do something. We just moved back to Oregon, and the doctor I used to see is only doing postpartum now, so I will have to see a brand new doctor if I need a prescription. It bums me out so much to deal with these. I don't get them often at all, but I have been eating a lot more sugar than usual (weird pregnancy sweet tooth + holiday treats) and under a lot of stress. Plus I think mine might be triggered by hormones, because I got one right after giving birth to DS. Anyone else deal with this?
