I am having one of THOSE days....tired, stir crazy, anxious. First of all, I started freaking out a couple of hours ago when I thought back to my doctor appointment yesterday. I went to an ENT for what is now for sure an Afrin addiction (don't get started on the nose spray people, it's NOT pretty)... and the doctor took my temp... 97.8. Now I normally have a lower temp anyway, like 97.5, 97.7, but isn't my temp supposed to be HIGHER right now? I was temping for about 3 months before we got pregnant, checking my temp every morning before I got up to figure out my cycle. The second half of my cycle saw temps above 98.0. And, isn't your body supposed to keep up a higher temp during your pregnancy? Now, I have no other reason to go on that anything is wrong at all. I just hit 11 weeks today, so could this just be a fluke? I've read about signs of miscarriage and no where does it say "lower temperature". I just hope I stop freaking out until I get to the doc next Thursday.
Ugh. And, it's that time of year... you know the time when it's bitterly cold and snowy and you just feel like a shut in. I HATE driving in this weather, and since I have no where I have to go today, I am hanging at home with B. But the minutes feel like hours and ugh.
Which brings me to my next thought... Seasonal Affective Disorder does NOT mix well with pregnancy. I usually take a "happy pill" of sorts during the winter to get me through and to pick up my depression. Well, as soon as I found out I was preggers in late December I immediately stopped taking my happy pill. My doc says it is "probably safe" to stay on, but who wants to risk it? I'd rather be sad than have a harmed baby. The normal mood fluctuations and hormones associated with pregnancy don't help this either... as well as the constant feeling of being "fat" pregnant this time (this only kicked in when I REALLY realized what I weighed at my first appointment last month). I am worried about running into old friends even now because they'll just think I'm fat. Ugh.
And, finally, I can't even seem to find human contact on my addiction of addictions.... Facebook. They made changes to the format and now I only see like 10 posts by anyone all day. Okay, I have like 350 friends... something is not right here. So, it seems like in addition to feeling as though I am cut off from the world by the weather, I am also cut off via Facebook.
Sigh. I REALLY can't wait until spring. I am so over all of this.
