*Lightheaded/dizzy spills when I stand up suddenly. I seriously see black dots and have to grab onto things to keep upright. It was freaking me out until I read in my Pregnancy Day By Day book this morning that it’s common right now. Phew. Thanks Oak for the great read!
*Awful thirst, all the time, often accompanied by headaches. I feel like I’ve been in the Sahara without water for days (or like I have an awful hangover). I drink so much water too, and it doesn’t seem to be helping – does anyone else have issues with this?
*Hungry all the time. I’m trying to space out small meals all day, but I’m seriously hungry non-stop.
*If I’m not eating, I tend to be sleeping. How do people work full time jobs? I’m constantly exhausted right now.
*Night-time nausea the last few nights. WTH? I seriously got out of bed and puked on Friday night it was so bad. Weird.
*Sore boobs – though not so much anymore. From 4w2d to 6w2d it was awful though. Still can’t run up and down stairs without some serious support, though at least I’m not sleeping in a sports bra anymore.
My first ultrasound is this afternoon (6w4d). So nervous. So unbelievably scared that this won’t be everything we’ve hoped for. Praying praying praying…
Also, my good friend Kelly @ Little Looman Log is going to meet her little girl today!! (she’s getting induced at 37w3d b/c of pre-eclampsia) Send some good thoughts her way please!
