Freak out!

I had a little meltdown last night/this morning. Yesterday I noticed I wasn't really that nauseous. We were pretty busy as we got down all our Halloween decorations (we have a lot!) and put them all up from 9:30am until almost 2pm. I even got a little burnt. It was very sunny and hot out.
In the evening I started having some cramping that was a bit different than what I have been feeling. I have been getting two different types of cramping since I became PG. One is from my lovely IBS that this PG is driving crazy. The other is just my uterus and body growing to make room for lil Pea. I wasn't sure what the cramps last night were like. Maybe a little of both? But yet still different than usual. Anyhow, this on top of the "missing" nausea of course had me panicked. It took me back to 02/04/09 (my last miscarriage) like a horribly lived nightmare. Needless to say I slept like shit and was pretty panicky this morning. I woke up and still no nausea. Also I was surprised I didn't wake up for my middle of the night cracker feast. lol Yes I usually wake up sometimes in the night feeling horribly empty and nauseous. So I eat a few crackers I keep next to my bed and go back to sleep.
Once I woke up I started drinking one of my Activia smoothies while getting ready for work. I noticed that this was making me slightly nauseous. Then all of the sudden I felt like gagging (which I do often) but realized this was going to be worse than my normal gag. I ran to the toilet and threw up a few times. I am still not sure if this was morning sickness (as I have never actually thrown up) or just my nerves. Or maybe a combination of both.
The cramps have now stopped and I am just a bit "sore" feeling I guess you could say. I have felt this "sore" feeling before. Probably from everything stretching and moving. Needless to say I am a bit over sensitive to
every little thing going on with my lower body ever since the last miscarriage. It's honestly a bit ridiculous at times. Not to mention quite annoying.
Well now the nausea has returned with full force. And the cramps have stopped. So I have calmed down a bit. I was going to call my dr. but glad I waited. Now I think I will wait and see how things go today and tomorrow. If it bothers again I may call to see if I can come in tomorrow or Wednesday, if not I will try to hold out for my appt. Thursday.
I am thinking (& hoping/praying) the cramps were either 1. Just my body making even more room as baby is growing a lot now 2. Some more IBS as things are moved around in there to make room for baby 3. I overdid it a bit yesterday morning. my legs were even a little sore this morning! Crazy because i was a pretty fit person before this PG, working out several times a week. I have to remind myself I am not as fit as I used to be. In the beginning I was too nervous to work out and now with the nausea all I ever am really up for is a walk around the park! And finally 4. Maybe a combination of "all of the above" and that is why the cramps were a little more intense than usual.
I just hope soon I can finally relax!! Poor lil Pea must be a like a Mexican jumping bean!!
Thursday can't get here soon enough!

Our Halloween decorations


  1. I'm sorry that you are so worried but I competely understand. I hope the week goes fast for you!

  2. sorry you had a scare, take things easy, one day at a time, it will be thursday before you know it. And I think anyone who suffered a loss is more sensitive to what we are feeling. ((hugs))

  3. I experienced cramping up until 12 wks. And the throwing up....still sounds like the morning sickness. When you keep yourself occupied, the nausea is not so intense so that's probably why you didn't notice it too much on Sunday. Can't wait to hear how your appt goes! Stay positive and keep the nerves at bay the best you can.

  4. hey, TAKE IT EASY!!! i still get the same cramps when i "do too much", makin room!! good luck, when is your next appt? xoxo

  5. Still praying for lil' pea -- sounds like nausea is coming in waves - I know it's hard not to worry but try to take it easy and relax- analyzing everything little thing will drive you bonkers ;) thinking about you too
