I am trying so hard to stay positive and take everything in stride. I think I am doing okay, except when I'm not. Tuesday was a rough day. It seems I do well for 3-4 days after the u/s and then I have my day of panic and anxiety. This time around, I started wondering if this is my last week of being pregnant. It's not a fun thought, but as Wednesday marked 7 weeks for me, I realized there is a good chance things could end next week.
Last night I started to get the hive-like "things" on my back. I tried SO hard to not think about it because thinking about them only stresses me out and makes them worse. Just before going to sleep J and I listed all the positives of this pregnancy and I was able to fall asleep without thinking about my back. It really seemed to help, because WOW was I happy when I woke up this morning and the
"things" were pretty much gone. That almost never happens. J was pretty shocked when he checked my back for me... he said they looked like they were smaller than they were last night. I really need to see a dermatologist about them and see if I can get one biopsied.
I've cut out quite a bit of my carbs over the past 2 weeks - orders from both Dr. A and Dr. H and it's really helped the scale. I am not aiming to lose weight in any shape or form, but I have dropped a few pounds. I definitely feel like I've been eating healthier and that is a positive!
