Actually I’m 8 weeks, 4 days based on my LMP; but since I have short cycles, I feel that those things are not quite accurate for me.
So yeah, I decided to post this…to kinda share and compare how this pregnancy is going compared to my last one. I’m feeling really encouraged! No bleeding or spotting. Although at around 7 weeks, I did have some tan discharge…not sure what that was, but it lasted no time.
My relationship with food is 500 times better this time around. When food, meat especially, is cooking, it doesn’t smell “good” to me. However it doesn’t make me unbearably sick like last time. And while my appetite is picky, I can eat things! Last night my BF made steak, and I ate it! I still get a weird taste in my mouth after eating most things. Oh, and I’m always thirsty. But I’m definitely getting my calories in this time around. And for that I’m thrilled!
Speaking of food, I just crushed some palak paneer and a blue monster smoothie! So proud!
However I am a bit stressed about no having my first prenatal appointment yet. I applied for Medicare….and I’m on it. However, it said that I can’t start using it until May 1st! WTF. I don’t know what to do. I should be seeing someone NOW.
Also, I haven’t worked since I conceived. I am experiencing a lot of fatigue (I sleep and nap a lot). I’m scheduled to start a new job next week (we desperately need the money)…but I wonder how I’ll be able to deal with going a full 8-9 hours with no nap…
