Tomorrow I will be 6 weeks along. Last night the pregnancy sickness started. We were on our way home from our ball hockey banquet when I started dry heaving in the car. I rolled down the windows and with every ounce of will power tried to focus on not puking. But all I could smell was the pungent strength of a teammate’s cologne on my clothes, the mint gum DW was chewing, and my smelly feet (I wore shoes without socks- gross, I know, but I’m so hot these days). I clutched the free water bottle that we won for coming in first place, as a backup vomit catcher.
Morning pregnancy sickness has officially begun.
In other news, for the past three days I have been struggling with the symptoms of a UTI: waking up every hour to pee, bladder feels tingly and achy, tingles to pee, etc. We finally went to visit my family doctor (who is awesome) today, and had some urinalysis done. Apparently my pee is pretty clear, though there is some blood, which is just a sign of irritation. She wrote me a prescription for Macrobid, which is safe during pregnancy, and is having the urine cultured to see what grows. If my symptoms worsen, I will take the antibiotics.
She also wrote me a prescription for diclectin, which is for morning sickness. Depending on how bad the nausea is, I may or may not begin taking it.
Our 6 week ultrasound is on Thursday. Can’t wait to share the results with you.
