Perhaps I jinxed myself (again!) with all that talk about feeling so much better. Yesterday was a BAD day. Especially last night. It started at about 3:00 and just got worse as the afternoon/evening went on - throbbing headache, nausea - bad, stomach pains, abdominal discomfort, constipation, gas, belching, etc., etc. - all the classics. I know I said before that I assumed I would still have off days - but I guess I was thinking I was through the worst of it - but I really felt awful last night.
Today seems better - so far. I hope it stays that way. We are due to fly on Friday to Washington, DC to visit J's dad - and I would really hate to endure a 6 hour flight feeling crummy.
The other thing I have been noticing - mostly in the evenings - is my belly is getting uncomfortable. I didn't expect to have this feeling so early on - given that my belly isn't really growing that much yet (regular pants no longer really fit comfortably, but I can still lay on my stomach, so it hasn't grown that much!). But by the end of the day I feel like I have done a bunch of situps - all my abdominal muscles are just sore. It hurts to sneeze or laugh. I always feel much better when I wake up in the morning. I assume it's normal - there's growth happening in there and these muscles are being stretched. Just surprising to feel this when I'm not even getting big yet.
