I am so thankful for my ridiculously high progesterone. Apparently your progesterone should be from the 20's to the 40's in the first trimester, and mine is in the 60's. I am not going to complain about that.
However, I will complain about the side effects of having such ridiculously high progesterone, and it may be TMI. But, here you have it... I got hit with pregnancy constipation ridiculously early thanks to my super high progesterone.
It's causing abdominal pain, and I have to keep asking myself... is that my uterus or my bowels? What hurts? What should I do, should I see a doctor in case it's my uterus... but they wouldn't be able to do anything anyway. And they wouldn't be able to do anything for the constipation that I myself am not already doing. I am dropping fiber down my throat like it's going out of style, I am taking pills, trying to walk... but then it hurts so I am trying to rest. There's no relief in sight.
I get another beta tomorrow. So hopefully everything is fine, and it's my bowels and not my uterus that hurts.
I pulled something in the car yesterday. I lifted my butt of the seat to pull my trench coat up some, since it was too tight on my arms. I needed some leeway. Of course, when I did so, I felt a sharp pulling sensation in my lower left abdomen... not sure what it was. It's still tender though. It has me on edge.
No spotting right now... but I did have a horrible nightmare last night that felt real. I dreamed I woke up and went to the bathroom, I wiped, and there it was.... dark red blood.
Just a dream... it was just a dream. But of course when I woke up from that nightmare I rushed to the bathroom and checked. Nothing. Just a dream.
So, I am where I was before when the world came crashing down around me.
I am on the cusp of 5wks. I am 4wks 6ays... so close.
I hope I can make it through today.
