Is it just me or is this TWW crawling by? Maybe it’s because I spent the bulk of my weekend either in bed or on the couch feeling miserable.
Thanks for all the input yesterday. Now that I feel a little more human I realize that a 99.3 degree temperature really is not that ridiculous. I blame this overreaction 100% on the progesterone.
Let’s take a few minutes to mull over what the hell is wrong with me. This is gonna include way TMI so if poo and gas is not your cup of tea please skip down to the POAS Pledge update.
First, numerous things in my body have changed in the past week or so:
- Started a new, pregnancy-safe, allergy medication (Singulair)
- Started progesterone in sesame oil shots (have done 10 shots)
- Had an embryo transfer
- Drinking soy milk for the first time in about 6 to 8 weeks (Whole Paycheck , i.e. Whole Foods, was out of my Flax milk)
For the past 4 days I have been experiencing mounting indigestion. Thursday was uncomfortable. Friday was a little worse. Saturday was full-on “Where the hell are the TUMS” and Sunday I thought I might die. Any time I eat anything my body feels like it needs to let out the world’s biggest burp or fart but it just won’t come. It HURTS. I have this full and nauseous feeling all day. Sometimes my tummy starts burning and then it calms down on its own. I can’t stand the thought of onions, vinegar, mustard or garlic which is weird because I usually love those things.
Incase this was not enough, Friday night I decided that putting greasy super spicy Thai food in my belly was a good idea. Saturday we had left over greasy spicy Thai. By Sunday, yesterday, my back ached, my head hurt, my entire GI tract was upset and I had a low fever. (cue panicked blog post).
Today I’m feeling a little better (no more body aches or fever) but the upset stomach/need to pass gas feeling is still very present. At 5 a.m. I woke up with a start and then (forgive me for waaaay TMI) proceeded to poop my brains out.
I also have AF like cramps today which is making me seriously bummed.
So I ask you all: What the hell is wrong with me??? Could this be a POI side effect? I’m taking 2ml each evening which does not seem like that much. It seems way too early to be having pregnancy-related indigestion. Could this be due to Singulair? Seems a pretty violent reaction to such a small allergy pill.
Ugh. So here I am at work, armed with a bottle of air freshener, just incase I get lucky and all this pent-up gas escapes, and a fresh supply of period paraphernalia stashed in the office bathroom as the cramps are really kicking up since arriving an hour ago.
