This week has been a bit rough. I have just had a constant feeling of unwellness. My RE gave me some diclegis which I started Friday night. Saturday I was super groggy, but felt fine. Today I took an afternoon nap, but the grogginess was nothing like it was Saturday, and I ate well. Like actually came up with what we should eat, which is the first time in a couple of weeks. I’m finding that I don’t really ever WANT any food, so when I do, Joseph is quick to get it. I do enjoy Sonic Ice water(like always!) but that’s about all. I have stopped taking my baby aspirin because of the hemorrhage, but I’m still on my Prenatal, metformin, and added in a colace stool softener, and diclegis. My ultrasound on Thursday 7w4d showed the baby measuring 7w1d(which she assured me is ok) with a heartbeat of 148. My hemorrhage hasn’t gotten any smaller, so I’m still taking it easy, so Joseph and I decided I would not be watching our friends boys anymore. Just the added stress wasn’t worth it. I also went on an interview this week, and have two job offers for the fall. Joseph and I have been discussing which would be best for our growing family, but the decision doesn’t have to be made until Wednesday, so while we’re 90% certain, I’m going to hold off on declaring anything.
