Today I’m in my 11th week of pregnancy, only 1 more week of those progesterone shots to go. I’m feeling ultra bitchy today and I think it’s because of my incessant cravings for sex, wine and food. In that order.
Here’s the problem. Because I have done IVF to become a gestational surrogate, I am required to take progesterone shots for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Those shots can sometimes turn me into a hormonal nightmare. So even though I say I want sex now, give me 10 minutes and I’ll change my mind and I’m pretty sure I’ve pissed off my husband enough so that he will not want it either.
I’m going to whine about wine. This pregnancy has been rough for me in regards to nausea. Prior to pregnancy, I was not a regular drinker of alcohol but I would enjoy the occasional glass of wine on tough days. I feel like I’ve had the stomach flu since I peed on the stick and Sometimes I cry over not being able to have that glass of wine. Again, the hormones.
And lastly food. I’d make a deal with the devil for some McDonald’s chicken nuggets and fries. But that probably wouldn’t last long in my body before it comes back up. Take my advice on the fact that throwing up McDonald’s is about as disgusting as…well, it’s just disgusting, take my word for it. I’ll stick to the salads and veggies for now.
This is me staying hopeful that after next week I’ll be able to finally have sex, continue to dream about my glass of wine that I can have post birth and maybe get something good to eat without the fear of throwing it up. Thoughts and prayers appreciated.
