So I went to the doctor yesterday and she was lovely! She ordered a full blood test, did a wee test (which she also sent to pathology to make sure) and checked my blood pressure and even felt my tummy. She prescribed me maxalon, I've only had one so far so not sure how good it works yet! She also said I'm dehydrated which I knew anyway as I haven't been able to drink as much, so am trying to take water (with a little bit of cordial in it!) with me wherever I go and just sip on it! Fingers crossed my levels are all fine and that the maxalon starts to make me feel human again!!
How is everyone else feeling?
Hope all tests come back in the right ranges for you. I am feeling fine I wouldnt evn know I was pregnant other than missed period and swollen boobs, only 5 weeks tomorrow fx the ms doesn't kick in for me.

Also is anyone showing yet? I've lost a bit of weight but I have a little pot belly happening already although I'm not sure if that's just bloating or water retention haha!
I've been having quite a bit of brown discharge with a tiny bit of red blood so my doc sent me for an ultrasound this morning... and I am happy to say that all is well . Bub is measuring spot on (I am 8w 6d) and had a nice healthy heartbeat of 159bpm and was wriggling and moving around. I am so relieved that all is ok
