So hubby and I are in ucluelet on the coast of Vancouver island. We flew out on Sunday and stayed the night in Victoria. Yesterday we did the long, windy, mountain drive to the coast. That drive was something else! I think there were 5 mountain passes in total. In a few of them, there was a lot of snow and we saw many cars and trucks on the side of the road barried in snow. We realized how scary the whole drive could be. We only rented a mazda so we hope the weather holds up and on Friday when we make the drive back, we don't face too much snow! The coast is beautiful! Of course hubby is worried and stressed about a potential earthquake and tsunami. He has an evacuation route worked out and made me gather necessary belongings last night in case we had to leave right away. It is funny, he gets frustrated with me a out freaking out and worrying about this pregnancy saying things like you should just enjoy yourself and don't stress as you can cause a miscarriage to happen, yet he is full of anxiety about an earthquake that, although one may occur in the next few years, the chances of it happening in the few days we are here is probably seldom.
I was feeling pretty sick last week leading up to the trip. I was really worried about how I would fare on the flight. Of course on Sunday my symptoms pretty much vanished. Normally
People would be happy that they don't feel like throwing up on a plane -for me, it made everything so much worse. Yesterday morning I felt a bit more pregnant, but still not really nauseous so I prayed. As many of you know, my faith has been quite shaken through the previous 2 losses and whole IF thing, but I figured, praying wouldn't hurt. So I prayed for a sign that everything would be okay. I said that being sick makes me feel good about this pregnancy so I will take whatever comes my way. I wasn't feel much of anything when I said that prayer, but not 20 minutes later an overwhelming bout of nauseau came on and I ended up throwing up! This was the first time I had puked! It was a very bizzar moment. Now anyone could argue and say that it had nothing to do with my prayer and that with pregnancy comes vomiting, but it was too concicential for me.
I have been having these weird cramps on and off these past few days. Of course I am worried, but they felt more like growing cramps rather than contracting period like cramps. However, last night I started to get this weird cramp almost in my left groin. Right where my underware sits. I realized this wa occurring after I got out of the bath. Hubby told me that it was my groin and not uterus or overies so that I shouldn't worry about it. However, it lasted all night and it still pretty intense this morning. Of course I consulted dr. Google and it looks like it could be round ligament pain - but at just shy of 7 weeks I shouldnt be experiencing this. I also read that if it persists or gets worse, to go see a dr. Well since I am 3000 kilometers away from home, the last thing I want it to go to an er, wait for 6 hours for some dr to either tell me it's nothing or that I am having a miscarriage and nothing can be done to stop it. Has anyone experienced this kind of pain so early in their pregnancy? Please let me know! I hope it's nothing!
Overall, my anxiety hasn't ruled over me and I have been able to enjoy some of this trip. If. The pain would just subside, I hope I can continue to enjoy it!
