I missed posting for a week, actually 2 weeks. I’ve been feeling so yuck and exhausted. All symptoms have ramped up which is comforting in a way hopefully meaning baby is still there! I had my booking appointment last week and got my scan date through: I will be exactly 12 weeks (two weeks, 2 days from now) (Countdown has begun)
I’m living off crisps, crackers and soup at the moment; the sickness gets progressively worse throughout the day. Ironically I feel the best in the morning. I’ve been waking up very early for no reason, just bolt upright wide awake at 5:30am. I’m assuming thats to do with hormones. When I was pregnant with H (second pregnancy) it was awful, for the first 5 months I slept an average of 2 hours a night. I would have no problems getting to sleep usually about 9pm and then 2 hours later I would wake up, wide awake with a hot flush. Literally boiling hot drenched in sweat. I would not be able to go back to sleep then at all for the rest of the night. Nothing I tried (beside drugs) helped until one day after 5 months I slept through the whole night. It was the worst sleep deprivation ever, complete torture. That was just one of the many problems I had in that pregnancy (by far the worst out of the 3 ) which ended in a retained placenta causing me to haemorrhage 2 litres of blood needing 3 blood transfusions! However, this is the result of that difficult pregnancy: She was worth every second 🙂 forgive the crazy oversized bow i do tend to go a bit wild in the bow department with her.
