Symptoms?: Nausea is pretty much gone, but I’m still just not feeling well most of the day. Like a stomach ache or something. Sometimes feel uncomfortably bloated, but even when I don’t, my belly is out there…. I haven’t been taking Zofran, so the constipation is gone for the most part. The 2nd day (8w5d) I went without Zofran, I was able to have a good BM (I know, TMI), but the bad thing was I was bleeding red after. I knew some of it was because of the BM and I think it irritated my hemorrhoids from when I delivered Kellen, but I was pretty positive some was vaginal as well and I freaked out. But there hasn’t been any more since. I was able to find the hb on the doppler at 8w3d! So I tried it again the day I had the bleeding and found it easily as well and found it again the next day. So I’m sure the baby is fine.
Weight gain?: I’m up 3 pounds total. I picked a starting point finally that I’m pretty sure is really close to accurate, so I will use that from now on. Now I just need to remember to weigh myself weekly. Ugh, I hate seeing that number go up, even though I know it is for a good reason.
