And I'm thirsty!
I know nothing about pregnancy, but I used to think pregnant women went to the bathroom so much because their uterus pushed on their bladder and they were going more often but not necessarily more. Boy, am I dumb. Maybe that's what happens later, but right now, it's cause I'm drinking a fish tank a day.
I have a 20oz bottle that I drink out of all day. I don't keep track of how often I refill it, but it's a lot... it has to be at least 14 times a day. If you are doing the math right now, you're probably thinking, "No way, you're exaggerating." No, if anything, I'm low balling it.
I've discovered that the moment I start getting the tiniest bit dehydrated, I start to feel like crap. So I drink, and drink, and drink.
I think some of my insomnia had to do with dehydration too. I was trying not to drink at night so that I wouldn't have to get up to pee so much and realized that the reason I was probably laying awake at 3 am had more to do with feeling crappy than not being tired enough. Now I make sure my bottle is full before I go to bed and drink every time I get up to pee and things are going better. I actually slept until my alarm went off this morning!
And I switched prenatals the other day. I started taking Rainbow Light Prenatal One and I think I love it. Michelle suggested that my dizziness could be from anemia. This vitamin had slightly more iron in it and in a different form than my old vitamin and the dizziness stopped as soon as I started this vitamin.
Also, I really haven't had much nausea and the small bit that I was having also stopped after I started this vitamin. It has a "Prenatal Blend" with ginger that may be helping me.
And I'm really glad that I don't have morning sickness, but it would be more reassuring to feel the symptoms of pregnancy a little stronger. It's been really weird to not feel anything going on down there... I'm used to at least feeling my ovaries go snap crackle pop so much of the time, I find the "silence" deafening.
