I've had a very easy pregnancy so far. Haven't gained ANY weight (though I started out overweight, I have not been doing anything special to not gain) So I hate to complain, but this last weekend things have gotten difficult. Starting Friday night I started feeling "too full" -- in fact, at first I thought it was just that I'd eaten too much and my body was complaining at me. But I was sore much of the night and although I woke up okay Saturday, it went downhill fast. Sometimes standing up feels okay. Otherwise it is still sore, etc. Back and forth like. All day Sunday it was basically the same -- basically, I was only comfortable when in the movie theater, with my legs stretched out in front. Something about that position was good.
I have been having to go to the restroom a lot, then sitting and not much of anything comes out. and last night was uncomfortable again. I almost called the doctor today. Then figured this was bloating and gas. Or maybe that round ligament pain thing people talk about. It's my baby growing and the muscles doing things they are not used to because this is my 1st. So I decided not to but at the end of the day I went and looked up bloating, etc on the web and none of the descriptions read like what I have. So I no longer know again. But we've got our big ultrasound next Monday March 19 so I figure if anything is wrong they will find it then, right?
We are really eager to find out boy or girl and to announce our chosen name, etc and I'm starting to worry what happens if we lose the baby now. it's unusual at 19 weeks, but it isn't unknown. And well, I guess I just want prayers. That my baby won't suffer because I didn't go to the doctor when I should have. Or something.
And I'm taking Tylenol tonight. Because I fear that lack of sleep (I could not find a spot lying down last night that let me get more than a couple of hours sleep at a time. On my right hand side, my side hurt where it has been sore all along. On my left side, the skin was stretched so that it hurt. The best was on the back, with my right side elevated on a down pillow. But even that didn't work for more than about an hour at a time...) is also making things feel much worse than they are. I keep wondering how I'm going to get through the next half of this pregnancy if I alreay am taking Tylenol for the pain.
