A Better Day All Around

Except for the m/s which has shown up unfortunately. Minor but definitely there. I spent 1/2 my morning at work in the bathroom waiting to barf. Thankfully, it didn't happen or I'd have a lot of 'splainin to do. I grabbed some sour candy and some water and felt much better. I even managed to have lunch and I already feel 100% better.

Of course I still have the nausea inducing pre-natals to take. Bleh I dislike them with a passion. I forgot to take one yesterday (dang it between everything else). Overall though I am feeling pretty okay. Still tired as all get out though. I could easily nap the entire day.

I am feeling much better about yeterday's ultrasound. After chatting with some of the ladies over at the Ovusoft forums many of them told me that if there was really a problem the pregnancy would have measured way behind (by like a week or more). My doctor seemed to think mine was right on track, so that was very reassuring. I have a lot of faith that next week my Clumpy will have grown and there will be enough to see what we need to see. If not we'll wait until at least 8 or 9 weeks before we call this one done-I heard a lot of misdiagnosed blighted ovum stories and I won't let my baby be a statistic unless it really looks bad next week. But it won't- all is going to be fine.

I am at peace right now with the way things are. Trying to enjoy my time being pregnant-even with minor m/s, slight cramping and extreme tiredness...I will be excited to see next weeks u/s.

I'm glad that things are moving along smoothly and you're feeling more at ease with everything. I'm sure Clumpy can feel it when you're stressed, and he/she just needs you to relax, Mama! :o) Keep us posted.

I'm glad you are feeling better today about things. The m/s sucks, I had it all 9 months. You could take the pre-natal at night before bed. That's what I did and it seemed to help a bit.
I hope you continue to feel peaceful which is good for Clumpy = )

I got prenatals that had ginger in them. Made a huge difference for me, in terms of vitamin-related nausea. Though I did throw up pretty much throughout.

Glad you're feeling better about things!
