When something could be wrong but ends up so right

Several weeks ago, you may remember that I wrote about a test that I was going to have to undergo. It was an ultrasound to detect the presence of any polyps or perhaps even cancer. I had worked myself up into such a frenetic ball of anxiety about this stupid test. I was convinced that something was really wrong with me.

Well, little did the ultrasound tech, my doctor, or myself know....there was something wrong with me....or something right had happened, rather.

On the day that I went in for the test, I was actually pregnant and none of us knew it.

I look back and the tech mentioned something about an area that looked kinda "fluffy" to her. The doc looked at it and determined nothing was wrong at all, no polyps, no nothings!

Well, that "fluffy" area was probably the makings of the fertilized sac that is wreaking havoc on my body! hehehe....the soon to be baby that will kick my bladder and make me spontaneously pee....

I just have to laugh when I look back on that day....I remember how positively scared I was that something was so wrong...and in actuality things were so very right!

Progesterone.....the drug from hell..... in my right mind I understand why my doctor wanted to put me on Progesterone. She wants to make sure my body has all it needs to keep the baby safe and sound, yada, yada.

But when I can't find my right mind cause I'm curled up on the toilet with a trash can in front of me and my insides are coming out in both directions....yea, I have a hard time rationalizing how good this stuff must be for me.

I spent Friday night from 11:15-11:45pm just that way....spewing my guts, my butt becoming raw, tingling like I'm about to pass out, and sweating all over.

I tossed and turned all night and went from being cold to hot to cold to hot to cold to hot. It was horrible! I had the worst stomach cramps known to any human and was scared to death that this was all hurting the baby....well, the fertilized sac that is wreaking havoc on my body.

I called the doc on call and she said I was having the most violent reaction to progesterone that she had ever heard of. Lucky me. Then she says, could it have been something that I ate. Okay may be smart enough to be a doctor...but it had been 2 1/2 hours since I'd eaten dinner...I surely to Pete I didn't have food poisoning. I've read about food get that really 10-30 min after you eat.

Let's just say that I certainly hope that my doctor doesn't put me back on the drug I refuse to call by it's name forever and always shall be called the "Drug from Hell".

Here's to being pregnant...


Edit: I went back on the progesterone kicking and screaming. I took it with food like they said and I haven't been sick. maybe I had a stomach bug like the kind nurse suggested. Anyway....I seem to be tolerating it okay except for the restlessness and the hot and cold thing - which could probably be attributed to the fact that my furkids can sense something is up and they are PLASTERED to my side 24-7. Oh...and prune juice is my friend....just don't stand too close to me....haha!

I'm sure you're wondering why....

You guys might be wondering why I've closed off my blog....

Well...I have big news to share and to document and don't want the world to know just yet....

I'm pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty newly pregnant, only 5 weeks today, that's why this is being held under wraps. I did want to share this with those who've followed this blog for a while.

I've been nauseaous 24-7, which I keep being told is a good thing. Yea, I don't know what they're thinking, but this is crappy. I am a wimp when it comes to spewing my guts so I should thank my lucky stars I'm not huddled around the toilet or a bucket. I pride myself, in a very Jerry Seinfeld sort of way, in how long it has been since I last felt my insides twist in violent fury. Before Friday night, it had been 2 years and 6 days. *sigh* Streak broken. This baby has a lot to answer for already. ;-)

Anyway....that's my news....

More nauseating details about dr. visits and hormones and tests will come in the future I'm sure.
