We went out to breakfast this morning...I wanted mediteranian but everyone else wanted pancakes...so...after trying to eat I ended up waiting in the Jimmy due to the smell and taste of everything. I'm loving this nausea. With my first 2 I was hyperemic and it had already started. I've had a few waves of nausea and that's it! It's awesome! I pray it's like this throughout instead of like it was with the kids.
I can also smell my husband more. It's like some weird bloodhound has taken over my nose. I can smell him coming up behind me, entering a room, coming in from outside....it's really weird and he smells different than before I was pregnant.
And, what is up with the boobs?! I'm already huge and now there isn't a bra to fit me. I'm a D and they're too sore to go in a bra. I'm wearing the summer 'shelf' bras under shirts because they hurt so much. Even that's pushing it. (Speaking of TMI...) I'm as white & pink as you can get and my nipples are getting a brown cast to them. I don't remember that with the kids (then again my head was in the toilet 20-30 times a day). I thought the brown nipples happened to people with more melanonim (spelling). Is there anyone who is practically albino who is going brownish?
My uterus fills full, I'm exhausted, craving mediteranian (yummm vegetarian stuffed grape leaves), and pickled/vinegar stuff.
I'm upping my protein like Anne Frye says to do and I'm getting sick of the liquid protein/protein powders so I'm trying to find protein bar recipes.
I'm also vegan (no animal products no dairy/chicken/meat/fish/eggs/etc.) and I was told I'd have to take the blood thinner...I've gone brain dead here...but I didn't want to do that since it is found in your baby's spinal fluid and I met only one of the requirements (recurrent mc) and all tests had said nope to a clotting disorder. So I decided to go salmon (yuck!) since it has natural blood thinning properties. I figured better natural made like fish than drugs. So, I'm sick of the protein and just decided to add fish for the protein. So...tilapia, mahimahi & tuna will be added to the salmon. (would love recipes/advice on how to cook it 'cause I've no clue. I've been vegetarian since high school and vegan for 5 years.
I'm taking progesterone and I'm avoiding all soy products since it's estrogen based because I don't want them to cancel one another out (I know my other loses were progesterone based.)
I started seeing an RE and was really sad about that. Our first visit beginning of the month and he ultrasounds my ovaries and I'm ovulating from both!!! He says...'It looks like this is the month for twins!' Then doesn't want us to try!!! I ignored his 'you have old eggs' (I'm 29!!) and we were very active! So, I'm pregant!!! YeAH!! My ultrasound is going to be scheduled tomorrow. I can't wait to see the baby is ok. I'm worried because I've had so many loses...I've lost them up till 12 weeks and I'm really scared. I know this is our sticky babe because I have the progesterone that no one would give me. I'm so excited and I have to honestly say, I hope it's twins. It'd be nice to know that neither one of us would have to have empty arms after all these loses. But....Oh! Heparin was what they wanted me on!!! Huey & Weprin ob/gyn add off to the side reminded me!!!
But, I'm so excited and eager to see that little yolk sack, then the heart beat, see that little bundle wiggle, and feel it wiggle. Oh, and to then hold my bundle safe and warm against my breast as he/she/they nurse....ah...that's what dreams are made of!!!
