Two for one day!

Two posts in one day! I know, unheard of for me. But I wanted to keep the award separate from the rest of the random thoughts. And these thoughts are fairly random.

I had the day off today for an endocrinologist appointment. I seem to be doing well from his point of view. I think I was so relieved to hear it, I forgot to get a new prescription for my metformin. Now I will have to call his office to get the prescription. Sigh. Just not sure where my brain has gone lately. I like blaming it on the pregnancy.

I think I am going to try to get my computer in for repairs. The place I plan on taking it to has a large backlog, which means I will be without my computer for at least 8 days! That is just when they will be able to look at it, not when they will have the repair done. I think it may be a rough week or two, but hopefully it will be cheaper than buying a new Macbook. Hubby said he will let me use his computer some. Small consolation. So, I may not be able to post a lot over the next week or two. Just letting you all know.

I have had awful heartburn lately. Really popping the tums. Not sure what else to do. I guess I will bring up up with Dr Sweetness at my next OB appointment. Still tired, too. It feels like it will never really get better, so I may as well get used to it. All of this comes with the territory, so I do not want to complain too much, but I am really sick of feeling tired and yucky. From what I can tell it does not get better, either. Just trying to grin and bear it, and enjoy what time off I have.

Hopefully they get your computer done relatively quickly...I'd be out of my mind with 2 weeks of no computer!

I'm glad your appt went well...hopefully the heartburn lightens up a bit.

The heartburn definitely did get better for me - I was scarfing Tums like crazy for the first few months, then it just stopped for a while. It has come back recently, but just when I eat too much or spicy or overly rich foods. And the tiredness disappeared, too - I can't remember how many weeks you are now, but I definitely agree with those who call the second trimester "golden." Not that it coincided exactly, but definitely the energy and overall yuckiness went away for quite a while. Now it's not yucky, just heavy and slow.

For heartburn, I've found chewing gum often helps, or drinking water. And a friend of mine swears that chewing on fennel seeds was the cure for her - so if you can handle the licorice taste, try it out!

So hang in there - it will probably get better!

Yeah, I had heartburn and still feel it occasionally if I eat something very sweet and fatty (like that carrot cake with cream cheese icing last night). But it's basically gone away for the last two months or so. Water always helps me.

Anna's right: The tiredness goes for a few blissful weeks, but then it comes back due to the whale-like belly that makes sleep a challenge. I'm just starting that fun phase.

And the short-term memory loss? Forget about it! :)
