~ Still Struggling
I wish I could say that I'm feeling hunky dory and all things are smooth as pie... but the reality is, week seven has definitely left me still struggling. To spare repetition from the last post, I'm mainly having issues on the nausea/fatigue side. It's truly off and on all day long. It's much worse in the mornings and again after dinner. So right now, I'm not feeling so hot. BUT, I do have much to be grateful for and that's another blessed little life growing inside of me!
On the pregnancy front, not a great deal of new things going on this week. Which, in my opinion, is a fantastic thing this early in the pregnancy. Just trying to get over the sick hump. I keep praying it's a normal pregnancy and I only have four or so more weeks of this.
I did switch doctors this week. I loved my OB (and staff) where I was with Benjamin. However, in the last year, they've gotten off the charts busy and big! I called because I needed to reschedule an appointment and they told me it'd be at least another month before they could get me in. If that was the first time it'd happened, it wouldn't be as big of a deal...but it's not. So after asking around and getting recommendations, I switched to an office just three miles further. I'm really excited about the change though. I'll actually have a certified nurse midwife to assist my doula with delivery. Also, the hospital where I'll be delivering is known for working very well with moms trying to have natural deliveries. Unless an unforeseen medical issue comes up, I do plan on attempting another natural delivery like I had with Benjamin. My first appointment is around 11 weeks so I'll be sure to keep you updated. Fun stuff!
The trip to W. KY this weekend went well overall. The sleeping situation was interesting but to my surprise, it wasn't the kids disturbing my sleep - it was the noisy neighbors!
I guess that's it for now... I need some rest!
Until next time...
