First of all, I am thankful that I have four amazing children that were born in my own home, into my own arms. Nothing will ever top that!
Second of all, I am thankful that I finally do not feel so ill that I didn't want to wake up in the mornings! I had to begin taking Zofran and higher levels of B6. It's working although I don't feel great. It is manageable. One of the most unpleasant symptoms of pregnancy for me is excessive salivation, which means that I must spit constantly. YUCK! However, I have talked to several women recently who share their stories of sickness for the WHOLE pregnancy! I have never had that and am thankful that it is usually gone at the end of the first trimester.
This week we are 8 weeks and have the first OB appt on Wednesday, along with another ultrasound and blood draw. I am hoping that I can begin easing up on the hormones soon. I really don't mind giving myself shots, but the Progesterone pill makes me feel kind of yucky.
My lack of yoga over the last week certainly doesn't help me to feel well and I look forward to resuming my teaching this week.
