I thought it would be fun to do a quick pregnancy update. I’ve shared things here and there on stories, but nothing too in depth, so I’m going to try and answer some questions I’ve been asked and just share about it so far!
So, not going to lie – this pregnancy has been a night and day difference from Blake’s. I’m not sure if it’s because I am still on so many medications and hormones or what, but I’ve just felt like a mess. Which has been REALLY hard for me because I don’t like to take steps back and this has kind of forced me to have to. No joke, I probably nap 5 out of the 7 days a week, at least once a day and am sick about 75% of the time. The last couple of days I’ve actually felt pretty good for the majority of the time, but I’m trying not to get my hopes up on that. HA! But I wouldn’t mind if it stayed away.
My pants barely fit already at 8 weeks…hahah which has me a little stressed out, but I’m wondering if part of that is again the injections I’m on and bloating just from all the IVF or it’s just that well, second kid and my uterus is lazy! Who knows. We go in next week for another ultrasound and if all looks well we finally graduate to my normal OB so fingers crossed there! They will also start weaning me off my meds, which let’s be honest – that’s the part I’m really stoked about 😉
Cravings wise…let’s see I feel like I’m eating like a teenage boy. HA – With Blake I craved strawberries and oranges and ate them so much it literally tore my tongue up hahahah, so far with this one I am either super sick or starving and eating so much, it’s the weirdest thing and there really isn’t much consistency. I’ve eaten quite a bit of strawberries again, I was on a broccoli kick for a few days, but that’s about it, it’s mainly been spur of the moment randomness like BBQ NACHOS, THEN ICE CREAM, THEN AN APPLE, just random – but like I cravvveeeee them, like have to have them. I’m not sure if any of that even makes sense it’s just weird.
The biggest thing I’ve noticed though (besides being super sick) is my emotions. My anxiety has been through the roof the last few weeks and I am one extreme or the other and crying a lot. Which, I don’t really do – I’m just not a crier. I cry sometimes when I get super mad (weird, I know), but that’s about it, but the last two weeks especially I’ve cried probably once a day about one thing or another. Sooo bless Marcus’ heart because I’ve been a mess.
I think that’s really all for an update, nothing too crazy, but just interesting to me how different pregnancies are!! I will say I will feel so much better in about 3 weeks here, when I hit that 12 weeks mark, HA! I wasn’t this anxious with Blake, but it’s just been nerve racking this round for me.
WELL HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
