I am 22 weeks and still nauseated and still getting migraines. Not all that exciting, actually. Nauseated is now my “default” setting.
Within the past week or so, however, I have been hit by awful diarrhea. I had the opposite problem previously due to the narcotic pain killers, so this was a complete surprise. My mom and Mr. MC also had the runs, so we just assumed it was something that we all ate. Theirs went away; mine did not.
I think my colitis might be flaring. Last time, pregnancy threw me into complete remission. It did this time to, at least for the first half. I am going through my usual rationales: “it’s something I ate;” “perhaps it’s just a bug;” or “I have been really stressed lately.” I am giving it another week and then I am going to have to call my gastroenterologist.
I already take two antidepressants, baby aspirin, thyroid medicine and Lovenox shots, so this is far from an “au naturale” pregnancy. I just hate to add two more meds (that are class B and “safe”) to my routine.
Oddly enough, with my bowels so, er, active, she-beastie is following suit. She moves a lot and I have slowly been able to ween myself off of the doppler. We are also slowly staring to prepare for the arrival, even though it is still months away.
The migraine –> vomit –> dehydration –> migraine cycle is back so I have not been posting.
I finally got goooooooooood painkillers that make me high as a kite, but do actually help with the pain.
We had the 20-week ultrasound today: a healthy, maybe baby girl!!
I am sure I will be more excited when the urge to vomit/throbbing pain behind my right eye goes away.
