For the first time in my life, my boobs were in the way. That seems to be what happens when they are swollen and getting bigger as fast as I can keep track of it. I was at the chiropractor getting an adjustment and the hip adjustment, which twists the body, produced a silent ‘oouch’ in my mind as my now, humble, but full B-cup pressed together.
I am at the end of week 7, with a projected due date of Oct. 21. We have had two ultrasounds. The most recent was on Monday and we got to see the heartbeat. So so so cool. I am still reserving my excitement.
The doctor was able to answer some key questions: can I use our Sage essential oil diffuser? Yes. It keeps me feeling relaxed, so the ‘no herbal products’ edict was a sad one to hear, but apparently diffusers are okay. Also, can I use our Hitachi? Yes. Thank god. The myth that you should avoid sex during pregnancy (as long as there is no pain) was thankfully dispelled. Although, finding any time when I’m not exhausted is proving difficult.
My bedtime has gone from 11 pm to … 8:30. 9 pm if I’m lucky.
I’m taking Endometrin (progesterone) 3 x per day. My hormones are at 65, 957 HCG? HSG? HST? How do we keep all these acronyms straight?
We have our next ultrasound on March 29.
