Hi. Fatigue has set in heavy this past week or so. I know for sure I’m not getting enough sleep and I’m trying to fix that.
Last week I threw up for the first and second times. Even though I’ve been nauseated, the vomit festivals were not connected to the nausea at all. Nay, this was due to my gag reflex.
I sleep with the fan on which usually gives me a dry/scratchy mouth/throat in the morning. To rectify this I always drink water as soon as I get up. We were displaced last week due to a power outage so my normal routine had been altered since we were staying with my mom. So I decided to be fancy and clear my throat sans water. Something got caught, I felt my stomach tsunami up and it all went to hell after that.
The 2nd time, I was brushing my teeth and must have gone too far back or the toothpaste traveled to far back….drag me to hell again. Both times were on an empty stomach so it was just stomach acid coming up which is ALWAYS FUN.
Ugh. My nightly pill-taking has turned into a nightmare that I dread every day. My horse-size prenatal was starting to cause me to choke and throw it back up, so Crabby has graciously been cutting it into fours. This still doesn’t quite help as they are rough-textured, so they end up all jagged and stabbing me in the throat and I have to fight my gag reflex to get it down.
I also had a scary bleeding incident but all is well now. *clears throat, shifty eyes* No need to go into that further.
Other than that, minicorn is the size of a lime this week! I can’t believe I am 10 weeks. That sounds so….real. Just a few more weeks to go. Everyone who has kids please tell me it gets better. Yes, just like the Youtube ads about gay bullying. In that same tone. In fact, I order everyone reading with kids to tell me how sparkly their 2nd trimester was after the horrid 1st trimester and how everything is a sparklefest. NOW. If your 2nd trimester wasn’t sparkly….just smile and nod.
My high-risk appointment is next week so we’ll see how that goes. Just tryna survive, day by day.
