How Iâ€™m Feeling:Â On Monday of this week, I felt great. I got lots of studying done and I walked and then studied in the evening with David and we went to the gym for a short session. Â I felt almost back to my old self. Â Then Tuesday, I couldnâ€™t lift my head off my pillow after my morning walk with Otis. Â I donâ€™t know what happened to me, but Iâ€™ve never felt so tired in my life. Â I was okay on Wednesday at clinic. Â The nausea held off. Â The weather here has been monsooning every night, so its really damp here and I saw tons of people in the clinic with colds and sinus infections and I think I have one myself. Â I woke up Wednesday with a sinus headache, but I took some Tylenol and that warded it off a little bit. Â Due to the insane amounts of processed sugar Iâ€™ve been consuming over the past weeks to ward off nausea, I have a small yeast infection too. Â My usual remedies for that are contraindicated during pregnancy, so I used monistat 7. Â I was really unsure about it, but the doctor and pharmacist reassured me it would be okay. Â The biggest thing this week related to pregnancy is the drop in energy levels. Â This is a bad time for that because I was supposed to be cramming for another board exam on September 4.
Doctorâ€™s Appointment: Â We had an appointment on Thursday to check the cyst with an ultrasound and just a monthly appointment. Â I had lots of questions for the doctor like reassuring myself the magnesium supplements are safe, about probiotics, etc.
What Iâ€™m Eating:Â Chipotle still is my favorite. Â It makes me feel great after eating it. Â I have no aversions to it (other than the massive amount of guacamole that put on it, so I havenâ€™t been getting that). Â Iâ€™ve been eating almond yogurt and corn flakes for breakfast every morning this week, which has tasted good also. Â Other meals are random and I canâ€™t even think what I eat. Â Honestly, itâ€™s usually some rendition of homemade Chipotle if Iâ€™m not there eating it. Â Mexican food is the only thing that really sounds good right now. Hmmm….
Exercise:Â The only thing Iâ€™ve really been doing it taking Otis on walks in the mornings. Â Itâ€™s nice to get out and get moving. Â In my previous life, I wouldnâ€™t have considered this any form of exercise, but now itâ€™s the exercise I get and thatâ€™s okay. Â Iâ€™ve accepted that for the time being.
