Orchids, I agree, love everyone's personals! I find it hard to keep up too. That and I read something then forget it until someone mentions it again. I'm actually reading about forgetfulness in my "What to expect" book and the best thing to do is to not stress and accept it as normal. I had a similar experience when I had insomnia for almost 5 months after a massive jury case I was on. I found stressing made it harder to remember things. So ladies, I'm going to laugh and embrace when I can and cry in the corner when I can't help it...emotions are running a bit wild too.
Oh and the olive oil soaks in really well for me. In the mornings if I don't want oil on my hands before work I use a make up pad or tissue to put it on. I am actually addicted to using it. I just used what was in our cupboard which was pure olive oil but I'm sure anything works.
Has anyone felt their baby move yet? I can't wait for that day. Although I'm sure ill miss a few before I realize what it actually feels like.
I think I must have turned a corner. Don't want to jinx it but I feel great this morning. I had broken sleep of course but I was able to fall asleep afterwards which is good for me. I really just sat all day yesterday and did work so probably haven't used as much energy as normal. Fingers crossed I've hit the second tri buzz!!! Woohoo!!!!
Congrats jay on 10 weeks!!
Veritas, you've been through so much, I'm sure weight gain is the last thing on your mind. Love the positive thought of using what IVF has given you.
Rtkirk, I know what you mean. I've been more tired in the second tri than the first. Today I'm feeling ok and running with. Actually excited. Actually doing nothing and no moving helped me.
Amps, love your craving! Enjoy it if it goes down well. My midwife spoke to me about similar remedies. Hope they work for you.
