Witty and Interesting Post Title

Ugh.  I’m so sick.  Vomitville meet Headachetown and Exhaustion Island.

Ok, I know that pissing and moaning about pregnancy is frowned up on in the infertility community.  I get it, honest.  I’ve been there when hearing a pregnant women bitch would send me into tears.  If that is the spot you are in – I apologize and I know that place and I offer hugs.  That being said, it doesn’t really matter how over the moon I am at carrying twins – I’m still barely functioning I’m so sick.  I mean BAD.  ALL. DAY. LONG.  I don’t vomit consistently but I have headaches and constant, mind-numbing nausea.  And I’m SO EXHAUSTED.  I mean I’m taking a nap when I get home from work and still going to bed at 9:30 and STILL tired.

Oh and did I mention both sides of my butt are lumpy and bruised from the damn progesterone?  whaaaaaaaaaaa.

Ok, besides feeling like the floor of a taxi cab (name THAT movie!), I’m so excited to be expecting two bundles of joy!  I’m reading all about the differences between multiple and single pregnancies.  I’ve decided to go with a maternal-fetal specialist (perinatologist) and to deliver at a hospital with a Level III nursery rather than the birth center.  I want to have technology available if needed.  I’m very concerned about Gestational Diabetes and Pre-e and just preterm birth in general.  I want the babies in there as long as possible and as fat as possible.  Needless to say eating 3,500 calories is not easy when you want to hurl.

  1. It’s OK to complain; you shouldn’t have to be happy about feeling like crap just because you survived IF. Has your doc suggestged prescribing something for the nausea so you can keep food down? Here in Canada women get Diclectin (which is a vit B6/antihistamine combo). Anyways, good luck and I hope the sickness passes soon.

    Oh I also wanted to mention a blog I read about a woman who survived IF and also had twins, succesfully reaching term (I think she even might have gotten to 38 weeks+).

  2. I also think it’s ok to complain. Pregnancy is no picnic! I once read an article about a woman who was pregnant after surviving a rare type of tongue cancer and her doctor told her specifically not to hold back. Just because pregnancy did not come easily to you doesn’t mean you have to spend every single second of it feeling thankful. Pregnancy is no picnic sometimes and you have TWO babies to complicate things!

    Complain away…and congrats.

  3. Hugs Paige. If there was anything I could do if I lived close enough I’d do it. I’m so sorry to hear how yucky you feel, but at the same time I am just so thrilled for you!
    This sickness just means you’re pregnant! With twins! Wow!

  4. When I had my miscarriage, my mom said that people who have a tough time getting pregnant or sustaining the pregnancy will often feel, when the baby does arrive, that they’re not “allowed” to feel anything other than happy and grateful. And she said to ignore that compulsion.

    If you’re miserable, you’re miserable. You’re also happy, and that counts, too.

    Best wishes with the coming weeks, and hope the nausea goes away right quick.

  5. I was soooo nauseous during my first trimester with this pregnancy. I felt like all I did was complain and also felt so guilty because I was so happy to be pregnant! But when I was feeling sick, it was all I could think about.
    The nauseau got much better around 13 wks and was pretty much gone by 16 or 17 wks. I hope that you are feeling better soon!!!
