So THAT’S spotting. (TMI…FYI.)

After this morning, I’m realizing that my prior concerns about spotting were lame in comparison to the issues I had today.

Last night was 2 of 7 that I have to use the dreaded cream and it’s less than desirable applicator. I was moving quickly to get ‘er done as it was 1:00am and I was needing to be asleep. I’d had some cramps on and off all evening and just wanted to get some shut eye. So, needless to say I was a little less than gentle “taking my medicine.” (I kind of scraped the wall of my vag with the thingy.)

This morning, our doorbell rang at quarter to nine. The hubs and I were sleeping – and I realized I had told the previous owner to come over and pick up some mail & packages delivered for him (nevermind we’ve been living here over a year). So I fly to the door, then run around trying to find the package. I finally give it to him and he starts up a convo, and all of the sudden I start to get black around the edges and my hearing starts to go. I keep talking and then excuse myself, say goodbye and sit my arse on the couch.

It was a close call – but sitting down stopped it from happening. Although I started in on the sweats and thought I was going to barf. Then I realized all this time running around was no good for the medicine downstairs and ran to the bathroom.

There was a pretty decent amount of spotting. Like, maybe I should call the doc spotting. And then again when I went later. No cramping this morning to go with it though, and it has since stopped.

Like, honestly? I had no idea I would be this stressed about this little bean so early on. I plan on telling the nurse when I go in for my first appointment in a week about the spotting – maybe they’ll give me some peace of mind and check it’s HB or something just so I know everything’s okay. It’s just killing me not knowing.

(the bloat and boob issues should be reassurance enough…but, no.)

So I went to the doc for what I thought was a bladder infection. I was wrong. I have a yeast infection.


So, now I get to use the dreaded “cream” for SEVEN DAYS.

Thanks, Friday the 13th. You didn’t fail to live up to your namesake.

And now, apparently my innards are not pleased with the combination of McDonalds and Chinese food.

At least it flew out the back end and not the front.

Today has been my first full week back at work since vacation, and the BFP. It has officially been THE LONGEST WEEK EVER.

Yesterday I won the award for “most fatigued woman in the office” so I rewarded myself by leaving work early, going home and sleeping for 90 minutes. It was fabulous.

Today I have been blessed with AF-like cramps that I am not trying to think about. I’m running to the lady-toilet every 20 minutes making sure nothing is going wrong. I can’t wait until I don’t have to feel this worry all of the time. (Although I’m sure I will continue to worry always.)

This weekend, it’s supposed to be around 50 degrees. People will be wearing shorts and acting a fool because of it. I am SO opening up windows in our house to air that shit out. I am also going to attempt to drag the hubs to BRU just to peruse. We’ll see if that happens. I’m sure I’ll get a “it’s way too early to go there” speech from him. We’ll see. I might spark the waterworks to get my way – should my hormones cooperate.

Dear intestines: Make up your mind. Thx.

In a mere 48 hours, I’ve gone from nearly shitting my pants to no movement AT ALL. Thanks pregnancy! I’ve only ever suffered from the big “C” once. It was not pretty.

In non poop news…I made an appointment at the clinic that utilizes the hospital we want to go to. I feel bad not seeing the NP I’ve been seeing for YEARS for my first appointment, but it seems like I should start out at the clinic right off the bat. Oh well.

This new clinic has the choice of seeing a set of doctors or midwives. GREAT. Another decision. I had always assumed doctor, but now I don’t know. Le sigh.

Also – I’m pretty much going INSANE not telling anyone about the babe. I REALLY REALLY want to wait, but not telling is almost killing me. I’m going to have another chat with the hubs tonight and see what he thinks. I’m tired of lying and having this great news and not being able to share it with anyone!!

The reveal to the inlaws.

I don’t know if I’ll keep this up forever, but I’ll post it for now.
