Hello Mothering Community,
This is my introduction! I am in the military and pregnant again directly after a "chemical" pregnancy with no cycle in between. I went into my first u/s appt expecting to find the sticky butterbean rockin and rollin..but God had already taken that sweet baby to heaven. Because I had not had a cycle, they did follow up bloodwork and found my betas to be low but on the rise. The last blood test I did was just at 5. My provider told me I was slow to rise, but that we are to do a u/s later this month to see if anything is developing.
I should have had a period last week, but I am waiting until the end of this week to take a hpt. I took 2 memorial day weekend, and they came back negative. i may or may not be around 5 weeks.
This is prob TMI, but..
So far, I have had sore, itchy, tingly, veiny, swollen, twingy pain breasts. Horrendous gas that could burn the eyelashes off a dog. Fatigue, bloating..but I'm always bloated...so.., Cramping last week that seemed like I was going to start and also some that felt twingy, pulling, slightly sharp for a split second, increased hunger and thirst, hot flashes and slight sweats, slight dizziness, and a general malaise...(i.e. I left my sneakers and my shower supplies at the gym..and didn't notice for almost a week), strange strange epic dreams, aversions and slight car sickness/nausea (but I honestly think that's psychosymatic). Some clear, gluey, sticky, stretchy discharge. And just regular white discharge. And I suppose increased urination, I get up to pee at least twice a night. And, I have to pee right now.
I feel like I did with the previous pregnancy, except now I have less headaches and am not nearly as weepy and emotional. I am also more active with walking, swimming, and starting yoga tonight.
I am praying almost every moment I think of it, which is almost every second. I just keep thinking that I will undergo all the discomforts of pregnancy and childbirth and take anything the Powers that be wishes to give. I wish I was hugging the toilet right now, just so I could know that this pregnancy is going strong.
Thanks for all your hoped for future support.
