Oh what a feeling!

Today I woke up feeling pretty good, which was nice. And on top of that I didn't need a nap in the middle of the day. I received my Great Expectations books yesterday and was so happy to see that it recommends taking a nap if you need it. I've needed it but alway but always feel so guilty. But today no nap was needed and the cramping that I am sure is the stretching of my uterus was very minimal. If I could only get rid of the heaviness and soreness of my breast, I'd feel like my old self!

The OB gave me a prescription for new prenatals. I was taking a generic brand I bought from Walmart, which cost about 5$. My prescription? 40$. Way for insurance to cover the charge. The pills have DHA, which is fish oil. The only bad part about them is that I can't take them with milk and they gave me fish tasting burps. I can get pass the no milk but the fisy taste is just disgusting. I'm not sure if I can do anything about that, except not burp! I have tried to take the pill with my breakfast, hoping all the food will prevent the taste, but so far it's not working.

Trying to come up with a cute way to tell our families when we finally do tell them, at about 10 -12 weeks. It will be easy to tell Hubby's parents, but I think getting mine together will be a big hint that something is up!

P.S. Apparetnly pregnancy brain fog has set in and I am starting to repeat myself.


  1. I take citracal - it's two separate pills that you take daily, one is specifically the DHA. But I've never had a problem with the fish taste... that's just plain wrong. You need to get on something else because that alone will give you morning sickness. rofl.

    I was on a different type at first, but they caused insane constipation. Then my dr. switched me to Citracal - it was a lifesaver! Also, if you find they don't settle well with your belly, take them at night before going to bed. That worked wonders for me! That's my 2-cents for the day. =)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to reading yours as well. honestly, I had no luck with prescription prenatal vitamins. They either made me constipated, made me burp like i had eaten garlic, gave me horrible indigestion, or just made me sick.

    I switch to the Target brand pre-natal vitamins and had no troubles with them.


Something to say? I love reading your thoughts!
