This post is late. The holidays and preparing for them have kept me pretty busy. I had my first doctors appointment on Tuesday. They adjusted my due date to August 4th. They took blood, had me sign papers, and went over basic information. I got a nice little, free book. All my bloodwork came back normal. My next appointment is still January 2nd. I've now lost almost 10 pounds since finding out I was pregnant, though I don't look it because I look super bloated.
This week the morning sickness (or should I say all day sickness) has really kicked in. The doctor gave me a prescription for Zofran. It has been a complete life saver. I already have difficulty eating much because of my surgery and being nauseous and barfing just made it that much worse. Actually... I don't really even barf. I just dry heave really hard because of the way my stomach had been re-routed. It hurts more than anything and sounds really horrible.
I'm not complaining. Just stating facts. I'm thankful every time I feel sick. I'm thankful for waking up all night long to run to the bathroom because I get up at least 3 times a night to pee now because I'm drinking so much water. I wouldn't change it for a second. I know how lucky I am. I also know that I have another 5 weeks before this little baby is completely nestled inside me and safe.
Symptoms: tired, all day sickness, sore nipples/boobs, weightloss, frequent urination.
