Today did NOT start off good. I woke up at 630 this morning from a deep sleep with HORRIBLE mid epigastric pain that eventually moved to my left lower side and eased off a bit. It was so bad at first that I thought immediatly a ruptured ectopic ... the pain got better so I waited to get G to school then called the midwife. They wanted me to go to the ER but the pain was alot better, no bleeding, no fever and I work at the hospital so I really didnt want to go to the ED when they could do an ultrasound today as an outpatient. So they sent me for my HCG level - not sure what the result was (Im going to look at work tomorrow) - but then they called me afterwards to head in for an ultrasound.
I had to go to the ultrasound alone which freaked me out - got a friend to watch G and headed in. Luckily the second she put the thing on my stomach we could see the yolk sac in my uterus - not in a tube. Yaaa! Im only 5 weeks so there was really no baby yet to see but everything looked ok. I did have a nice sized cyst on my ovary that probually is the cause of the pain.
So that took pretty much my entire day. Otherwise I have taken it easy and Im practically ready for bed. Just read a chapter in the tree house series to G after playing carnival on wii with him. Getting him to bed and relaxing - I will be in bed before 9.
I know I needed to take things easy today - but I am so bummed to again miss another workout. I feel fat enough as it is - and the pimples on my face...ewwww!
