Watch out... hormonal woman on the loose

Friday is my first ultrasound. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will find at least one gestational sack. My symptoms have been fairly low key. I am sleepy... A LOT. My breasts are quite sore. I am only really able to eat burgers and fruit. I am having very strange dreams. And I am extremely moody... poor hubby.

On top of all of this I seem to be very preoccupied (go figure). Sometimes I feel like it is difficult to even hold a conversation with someone else. I don't know WHAT I'll do when I go back to school next week. Everyone will think I've been replaced by an alien.

This preoccupation caused problems today when I tried to back out of the driveway. I was trying to focus on not turning over the recycling bin. However, I failed to keep paying attention to my neighbor's car. Yup, you guessed it. I slammed right into it's bumper. And of course it was plastic. So, it caved right it.

I called my brother (a mechanic) and went to tell C. She wasn't too concerned. She was extremely nice and understanding. As I tried to apologize and tell how I was going to rectify the situation I just started bawling. She felt so bad for me. She was quite confused as to why I was blubbering over a little bumper. I finally explained that I was pregnant. She was quite happy for me and thought the whole thing was kind of comical. DAMN these hormones!

I wonder if others will survive my pregnancy?!!!!!!

My sister (the one who just gave birth) is really really smart. EWhen she became pregnant she was the biggest arihead I ever met! It was hysterical! She was constantly preoccupied too!
She didnt have many of the other symptoms till she was in her second month..then she coudnt even smell meat!
To answer your question yes I have been on 1000mg metformin since 9/05.

AWE!!!! You poor thing! Once your body gets "use" to the changes it will get better. Second tri is THE BEST!!! This is my 3rd pregnancy (so cool to say!) and i'm forgetting how yucky the first tri can be. so far things have been ok.....but i'm still barely even 5 weeks....i'm sure it will come!

Good luck with those hormones!

Have you purchased what to expect when your expecting yet. I would understand if you haven't but my doctor gives them away with your first appointment. In the book they refer to it as pregnancy brain. And yes it will go away. For now just enjoy the ride. The first is always the best and worst.
