Okay it's been what 3 days since my bedrest started? I can't believe how bored I am. I've tried tatting but I can't concentrate on that for too long, my mind wanders. I've tried origami, again, wandering mind. I've read books, too fast. Napped, I can only sleep so long before I get grouchy. I've even tried to learn to crochet. I've never realized how much moving around influences your day. My daughter is outside enjoying the new pool, DH is at the in-laws with our son visiting his brother who is down from college for a week. I'm feeling left out.
I haven't taken my prenatal pills today. I know, shame on me. Suprisenly, I haven't had any nausea today. I still don't have much of an appetite, but I can eat. I think something in the pill combination is what is making me sick. This is the second time that I've skipped taking the pill and the second time I feel almost instantly better. I went online today to my 'baby forum' and read of others who've had the similar problems with prenatal pill making them ill. Most of them had an issue with the 'fillers or glues' that make up the pill. It makes one think, especially since I'm having similar problems. Well, I call my nurse hotline since my Doc is out doing hospital runs today and run the thought by them to see if there was any merrit to what I read online. Come to find out there is. Some females do have a 'side effect' to the fillers and usually they prescribe prenatals with a lower count of some of the vitamins within. Now, it's not too common, they said, but it has been heard of. I ask if there was something I could do until I see my Doc to have that verified by him. They suggested I keep taking the pills given to me already. We go around in a circle for a few moments then the nurse tells me I can take certain children's vitamins in lieu of the prenatals. But I would have to suppliment the vitamins it doesn't contain enough of, like calicum. I would end up taking more pills than just the one prenatal. Not what I wanted to hear. It was also recommended that I take the pill after dinner but at least 3 hours before I go to bed. So, until my next appointment, I'll try doing the after dinner hit.
So now I'm back to being bored in bed. BIB..lol..that was kinda funny. I think I'm going to have to break out the old cross stitch bucket. I haven't done that in years....I don't have any patterns to work off of, I lost most of them, but I do still have a computer program that makes up patterns for you from your pictures. Have to have my daughter find the CD, can't be too hard, I only have 2 caselogics with programs in them. I do remember sitting for hours on end working on that and I was never bothered by it. Perhaps that's what I need for now. We'll see how that goes, I do have 4 more days in this bed with limited activity. Good news is, that I've stopped spotting.
