Okay, I have to say that my pregnancy has been quite easy thus far except for the anxiety thanks to my previous loss. But what was with today?
I didn't sleep well last night. I thought since my body seemed to be adjusting to my new mattress it was time to try sleeping on a single pillow instead of 2. Wrong choice. My neck and shoulders were stiff this morning. And I was awake by 5 am when my alarm was set for 5:30 so I could go in to work early for French class. The sun is up way too early these days and it disturbs my sleep even with an eye mask on. So, I start the day feeling sleep deprived.
I get around to eating breakfast, the same thing I eat every morning, and I can't finish my oatmeal. I've been developing an aversion to the sweetness of the dried cranberries I put in there but I just couldn't finish. Then I couldn't finish my almonds I eat for extra protein. I couldn't finish my tea this morning. My stomach just felt super full. The rest of the day I had trouble eating. I felt constantly full and couldn't finish anything I ate. Supper? That was a challenge but I forced myself to eat a sandwich and drink some V8.
I also had major lower back pain and combined with the dark brown spotting I had last night and overnight I was a bit paranoid this was going to turn into something worse. Then there was the awful 'fullness' in my pelvis that I felt every time I sat down. Just uncomfortable. Forget about concentrating on anything work related today. I just felt wrong and off all day.
I know this isn't morning sickness but man, if morning sickness is way worse than this boy do I have sympathy for the women who suffer from it.
I'm currently waiting a few minutes more for my cat's medication to kick in before I give her some canned food and I can head to bed.
