Whew. Breathing a little easier. 1st u/s was perfect! — The Bump
Pregnant after 35

Whew. Breathing a little easier. 1st u/s was perfect!

Measuring 6 weeks, 4 days.  HB 121.

I'm so relieved and am gaining confidence each day.  

This pg is so different than the 1st.  I am so utterly exhausted.  It's hard to explain but I feel like I'm drugged all the time.  This is not typical of me in any way so I was concerned there was something wrong.  Looks like this kid is just exhausting to grow.  So, good news!

  • Yea for good news! 

    I am exhausted, too, but I am taking that as a good sign that the hormones are doing what they need to do!

  • That first ultrasound is really amazing, what a relief it can bring us. I'm still extremely tired, I wake up and an 1h later I'm ready for a nap. Well I would of preferred to just stay in bed to begin with though.

  • Congrats!  Earlier in my pregnancy I was exhausted all the time.  Everyone told me the second tri would be better for fatigue and morning sickness.  Well I will be 24 weeks the day after Christmas and the morning sickness has just gotten better over the last couple of weeks.  Very early in the second trimester the fatigue did get better, but I feel it starting to creep back in a bit.  This baby growing business is hard work ;)  Congrats on your LO and a perfect u/s!

  • Happy to hear the good news! I also had that drugged feeling in the beginning, but it went away for several weeks. Now I am back to wanting afternoon naps and I start yawning again around 7:00pm. Could be the holidays, though, too! :)

  • Thanks Everyone!  Yesterday I actually felt the desire to go to the gym so I worked out AND my DS let me STTN so I feel like I could run a marathon today!!

    Thanks for all your support, kind words and encouragement.  It's nice to have "friends" who know about my pregnancy because I haven't announced IRL just yet.

    :)
