Progesterone gel: because natural pregnancy related fatigue was not enough

Every night I get to use the wonderful progesterone gel. I started Tuesday I think… Or maybe it was Wednesday. Whatever, I started last week. I. Am. So. Tired. The people I’ve talked to online said that they were tired the entire time they were on it, but it wasn’t as bad after the first week. Fingers crossed that it’s the same way for me! I’m just lucky that I didn’t take classes like I had considered because I honestly don’t know how I would have made it through them. Falling asleep in class is generally frowned on.

Saturday was a terrible day with the nausea. I felt like crap the entire day & missed a night out with our friends. Even if I could have gotten it together enough to leave the house, there was no way I would have been able to handle a Mexican restaurant.

The nausea hasn’t been bad today. It’s still there, but it comes & goes, which I can handle. It’s the fatigue that’s getting to me. All I want to do is sleep. Really, that’s all I want to do. It’s hard for me to form coherent thoughts, which explains why my posts are so erratic right now.

I have no idea how long I’ll be using it for. I just keep telling myself that it’s worth it because it will help us have a baby this time. I’d really like to go to sleep & just have someone wake me when the first trimester is over.
