8w2d and today I feel the worst I’ve felt yet. No actual vomiting (it’s only happened that one fateful time), but slamming headache, too hot, too cold, nauseous, neck all in a bundle. I tried lying flat, napping, acupuncture, and icy hot on my temples. Nada.
Now I’m just trying to push through. I had lofty goals of finishing the first draft of my prospectus today, and godammit I’d like to do that.
Mercifully, I’m flying to see A on Friday. Hopefully that doesn’t mean barfing my way across the open skies. It does mean being taken care of for a weekend. Plus, I leave her on Monday and she comes to me on Thursday (we did a bad job of spacing the visits this quarter…err…). And then Friday is the first OB appointment! I’m excited and nervous.
The whole last week and a half has involved lots of managed waves of nausea throughout the day. I tend to be good when I wake up, then ride all afternoon, be ok in the evening, then it gets the worst at night. Boobs are much less sore. The day before yesterday I woke up with a gruesome breakout. Shouldn’t I be glowing? Does “glowing” just mean “radiating the deep redness of a face full of blemishes”?
