My cup runneth over... - Elizabeth Unexplained
Lots of data but no answers
My cup runneth over...
Symptoms continue. We like symptoms, even if they interfering with my social life a bit. This week's trick is the sudden need for extra sleep. I was falling asleep on my gamers on Tuesday and finally gave up when it was clear my body was too shut down to even keep itself warm, much less run a game. Last night I slept over twelve hours. Now I'm worried because I'm going to bed at a normal time tonight.

I have the sneaking suspision that my first maternity wear purchase will be new bras. Just a hunch, nothing to see here.

We've been doing the progesterone shots in my thighs for the past week due to lack of non-bruisy spots on my backside. It's not as bad as I have been led to believe. Of course, psychohist is really good at doing the shots.

Monday can't come soon enough. Please let them both be OK in there.

I hadn't made the connection between the tiredness and being so cold, but you're right. I'm freezing all the time (except at midnight, when I throw off all the covers and sweat vigorously). I remember doing this in the early weeks last time, and then in the second trimester I shifted to being hot all the time. I don't think I buttoned my coat that whole winter (not that I was able to button it by the end). One of the medical assistants used to scold me about it.

Speaking of which, do you know when you get transferred to a regular OB? I really liked Shirley Chung in Post Office Square, but that may not be convenient for you any more. (Learn a lesson from my experience, though - I thought it was very sensible to get an OB near my office for my appointments. It was less sensible when I was put on bed rest and had to be driven from Norwood to Post Office Square three times a week for nonstress tests. You're at a relatively high risk for getting put on bed rest with twins, so think about that when you're choosing a doctor.)

Yeah, I was overwhelmingly tired. ridiculously so in the first trimester. Well try and get as much rest as you can, your body is doing an awful lot right now!

Speaking of OBs. I really liked mine - she has a solo practice now which means you get her and not someone else for the birth. She delivers at Mt Auburn - which I was pretty happy with as well. Her name is Dr Hardiman - I can give your her info if you need it. I liked her enough to drive from Andover to Cambridge for this last preg.

I've actually gotten a recommendation from my RE for the OB. I'm going to be seeing a woman who is part of the Harvard Vanguard network, she's located Davis Square, so I'd be walking distance.
