11w 0d

I have been bouncing back and fourth between actually feeling pregnant, and feeling so completely devoid of pregnancy symptoms it seems like a drink is in order.

On the actually feeling pregnant, it's because my uterus has felt a bit enlarged or distended to me lately. Which is a pretty cool feeling. And I can't actually feel it from the outside, it's just how it feels inside of me. But only sometimes....

Because the rest of the time I seem to be without any symptoms at all lately. Thankfully, my voracious thirst is just normal thirst now. And I'm really glad, I was so thirsty before, a mere 20min without water felt like I had been stranded in a desert for days (not kidding, it was painful and desperate). So with my thirst back to normal, I don't have to go to the bathroom as much and I only have to get up once a night, and Monday night I actually slept through the night!!!

Also, my boobs really seem to be in a stable place now and don't really hurt, however I think it might be helping that I started sleeping with a sports bra on.

And the fatigue is dying down. I don't feel like hiding under my desk and taking a nap anymore.

And the other week when my cramping freaked me out it was partially because that's when my symptoms started to disappear. Strong cramping, disappearance of symptoms, why would I freak?

The one symptom that is ever present is my beautifully inflamed and pocked up zit face. It really hasn't been this bad in years, and just when I think it's getting under control, I get another giant breakout. Oh well, it's the price I pay.

Ok, but, dare I say it, I think I may have had my first certifiable case of pregnancy brain. I made out the sewer bill and sent it out the other day... so I thought. I got a call from them today, the stub was in the envelope, but not the check. I went and looked in my checkbook and the check was still attached. Fantastic.

Nice. I cannot imagine being any more absent minded than I already am. I will end up going to work naked or something.

Happy Week 11!

ugh... I've just started breaking out. not attractive at all! And I feel bad for the people who have to look at me! Also, I've had pregnancy brain for about 6 weeks now, haha! And it's only getting worse!

YAY for no other symptoms, though! Hopefully it will be smooth sailing from here :)

It sounds like things are going well for you. Isn't pregnancy brain fun? I don't think I ever recovered from it lol

I am glad that I found another person with PCOS who IS pregnant. I am on my first round of clomid and feeling a bit dizzy at the moment...but envying your pregnancy brain! :)

Hey ..thanks for the comments. Met is okay while breastfeeding - depending on who you talk to. It actually increases the milk supply according to some studies. Less than 1% of the dose is transferred into the breastmilk. I haven't started it yet ...but probably will eventually.

I'm so glad your thirst went away. Yayay for the appropriate amount of blood volume, eh? That was miserable for me too ...and of course ..now that I'm nursing every 12 seconds ...it's back. But not quite as desperate.

Your blood sugar goals are on the high end of current recommendations in the literature. My MFM insisted on less than 90 fasting and less than 120 one hour after a meal. I wonder why the difference?

Yay for week 11! Yay for no morning sickness (the only thing I fear)! My face is covered in zits right now too, thanks to the clomid :P.
