12w5d

and feeling crappy. I'm experiencing what my OB has said is Round Ligament Pain. I knew it would happen, as other bloggers out there wrote about it, but I didn't think it would feel like my ovaries are being SQUISHED like pancakes. That's really the only way I can describe it. Oh yea, and the back pain. My back is out of whack to start with...at age 31 I already have arthritis in my lower back...so this just sucks. I can't sit for long periods without having to fidget. I'm thinking I may bring a heating pad to work with me...at least I can set it on LOW and try to get a little relief.

Other than that, DH and I finally found our way back to each other in the s.e.x. department. In the 12weeks since our BFP, we'd only done it once...and my spotting started right after that. So we were on pelvic rest until the spotting stopped, then I was hit with the extreme sleepiness, and ok, I'll admit it, I was just damn afraid. I guess in my mind I was afraid that I would start bleeding again...I know, I know, one did not cause the other...but try telling that to a paranoid pregnant infertile! Every little pain or twinge frightens me...just a wee bit. But it was great to reconnect. I know he had been feeling a little neglected.

I hear you! I kept wondering if the nookey we had before the BFP caused the miscarriage. I have decided if we ever get lucky again NO NOOKEY ever! LOL. But on a serious note...I think we are more paranoid about everything and rightfully so...but it won't end, even with the decry of "Its a Girl" then the worry and paranoia just gets more intense!

I'm sorry that you are hurting! I hope that goes away soon. My round ligament pain didn't last. Maybe my body just got used to it, but it stopped hurting. I hope the same thing happens to you!
