My next u/s is Friday may 15th so about a week away now.Everything is going well here.Still adjusting to the idea that I am actually pg.But since my tummy has swollen to new proportions it is hard to not have reality set in.I finally picked up a couple of new bras that were a whole cup size bigger this week as I was bulging out of the others.I did not think all the swelling and bloating would happen so soon.But I guess everyone is different.The cramping has settled down a lot.The new thing I have been experiencing is headaches.Long lingering headaches that Tylenol doesn't touch.Actually Tylenol has never worked for me so why should it now.Does anyone know any safe treatment of headaches like home remedies while you are pg? My last headache lasted for three days I would go to sleep with and wake up with it daily. Also does anyone have any book recommendations?I did pick up "what to expect when you are expecting" like my RE recommend but are there any other good ones.All of this is new to me as I never made it this far before in my earlier pg's.And even up to the same point I never had any symptoms only a BFP on a stick.I never had the blood tests, never saw the heartbeat, they just didn't watch me that close. This has been my first u/s ever that I have seen the baby that I am carrying as the only one I had before was during one of my mc's.Everything about this pg is different but I think that is good even if I can't fit into anything I own and have been experiencing some nausea and throwing up.It may sound strange but some of these not so fun symptoms are comforting as they let me know that things are progressing and the baby is doing well.I am excited for my upcoming u/s as we will be released if it goes well to my OBGYN.Well girls I should go as we are getting up early to go to yard sales and find some much needed things for the baby.I didn't think I was gonna ever have another baby to raise so we have some bargain hunting to do because if we don't find stuff now it will be winter when the baby comes.And there are no yard sales in the late fall winter time.So we are trying to plan ahead so we can try to afford everything.Well God bless and sorry I have been a bad blogger lately but the headaches keep me down and away from the computer.
