Day Off; Not Doing Much

Today I had a day off and I think I was supposed to clean something. Hm, right. I was also supposed to buy something but I cant remember what that was?

I still haven't made any doctor appointments. I am kind of lazy right now. As I said, I just have enough energy to make it to work and back. I am trying to do better, but it is hard to do everything by yourself. I just don't feel energized to do anything. Probably because those kinds of things are really boring. Who the hell wants to clean anything? I don't. I was never a cleaning freak so I don't think I can start now.

I haven't been recording my "lab" values but I have been doing the tests. I just received my urinalysis strips yesterday from Amazon. Well, I did the first test and was like "WHAT?" Apparently, the first line of the colored boxes is the strip as it is, unactivated, the next line is the results if they are "trace" and the rest are more positive. This website was very helpful in helping me figure that out because the bottle doesn't say that! So far everything is normal.

Of course, the hospital posts jobs that I want, but I can't apply apparently because I need to be in my position for six months. Well, tomorrow I will ask HR if I can apply anyways because by the time they get around to it, I will be six months in. I should also ask HR for the number of the hiring manager of the position. Maybe I can ask them about it. Anyways, I am worried that when six months comes around, there won't be any positions and I will have to be in my current position that much longer ughh!!!

So far, I haven't felt much nausea other than what I normally feel. I called my mother today to see if she had any problems when she was pregnant and she said kinda with #1 and not really afterwards. So I dunno. I guess we shall see if I progress to morning sickness. The only thing I feel mostly is just tired. Or bored, like nothing is stimulating. I don't know what that means either!

I haven't stopped drinking my coffee. My mother drank coffee with me so I think I turned out okay, ha ha!

Well, maybe I will try to put away my clothes now.

I'm Multiplying

So my last post shows a picture of something. In case you don't know what that is, it is a pregnancy test. It is a positive test for HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin, which is manufactured during pregnancy by the fertilized egg. Emphasis on fertilized. Hello! I'm pregnant!

There is quite a long story behind this, and is partially why I have been so quiet these past couple of years. I will go into length maybe tomorrow about it, but to make a long story short, I thought I was infertile, or at least, thought I would have much trouble conceiving because that is just the way I felt. Of course, I never really was all gung-ho about reproduction until recently. But I will say that once you want to start reproducing and you can't, you start to feel very inadequate.

Anyways, this is week 6. My LMP was August 14. So that would make the baby born around May 21st ish. I haven't scheduled any doctor visits. I don't even have a doctor here in Arizona, so I dunno. Everything takes so much time and I work quite a bit. Not sure how I will find time to just pick a doctor out of my ass and expect him or her to be any good. I means seriously, would I even see a doctor or just some PA? I am really tired of that so I am not sure I want to spend money on going to a doctor to tell me what I already know. I think I would save it for ultrasound and tests. Other than that, what else is there? I certainly don't need a meet and greet, chit chat with a doctor for $500. I'd rather buy another purse with that money.

Anyhoo, that will eventually be my job in the coming weeks. What I plan to do is monitor my stats myself. I will get a notebook (very hi-tech) and record my blood pressure, heart rate, weight, and urine analysis. I will buy some pee sticks from amazon to monitor my protein and glucose levels to see if I have any sign of gestational diabetes or preeclampsia. I do have a fetal stethoscope but I am sure I will not hear anything until much later.

I have also been watching my diet very closely. I've learned a few things: 1) Folic acid does not equal folate. 2) Vitamin C increases iron absorption by 4 times. 3) Calcium and caffeine block iron absorption. 4) There are two types of iron; Heme and non-heme iron. 5) Spinach is basically nature's prenatal vitamin.

I will share more about this in a few days, but that link about the vitamin c is really interesting.

Today I was going to finish up ordering the "supplies" I will need in the coming months. I just seem to be taking forever for everything. At least I have three days off this week. I only have about a month left before I can apply for a transfer! I am so excited, I want to get out of that dish job as soon as possible! My hands and wrists hurt!

There are so many things to do that I am not able to do or have been backed up for so long. I have to clean out so much stuff and this and that, I need help! But it's just me here. What do I do? I have made a kinda friend at work whom I named Double D. I wonder if he will help me? Not sure because we do not have the same days off. Well, maybe if I am lucky and get a new job I will, the I can ask for help. I'll see.

And so this completes (finally) this update. UGH! I feel so lazy. I only have enough energy to go to work and come home. But I am going to try to get stuff organized. If I get the new job, I want it to be full time!

Okay until tomorrow!
