A tale of 3 cities, and a little side of Fragmin.

Back from my weekend getaway, still on vacation til next Monday. headed to Moncton on Thursday for the AC DC show and camping with my brother. The weekend was wonderful. We stayed in 3 cities, Lunenburg, Yarmouth and Digby, all Nova Scotia beautiful coastal cities. Friday night we had dinner at a fancy pants fine dinning  French Cuisine restaurant called Fleur de Sel. It was delicious. I had an amazing poached pear, candided walnut and blue cheese salad. OMG heaven, then Lobster dinner, then Creme Brule. Yum! Dave had stuff I don’t like, the Fois Gras starter, dinner was the Sweet Breads and for dessert he had Chocolat 3 ways. Saturday we drove the coast for 3 hours to Yarmouth and then had a nice dinner on the roof of a dockside restaurant as the sun was setting, ate yummy traditional Acadian food, the food of my ancestors. Sunday we drove to Digby were we went on a whale watching cruise which was incredible and then had more delicious seafood, I had pan seared haddock with butter and roasted garlic, it was heavenly. Today we drove through the Annapolis Valley and headed back home after a very relaxing long weekend away from reality. I have pictures which will be uploaded eventually πŸ™‚

5 day’s into the fragmin treatment, it has already become a seriously not big deal. I don’t enjoy it of course, but it causes only seriously minimal discomfort, and I have learned already that if  I pinch my skin, inject, release skin fold while injecting, slowly pull needle out and then DO NOT TOUCH the injection sight at all, I get almost no bruising at all, just a tiny purple dot, so I only got one big bruise from it total so far, not bad at all. I was so freaked out about this, and in the end, it was not worth getting so worked up over, it’s a really really small needle that I don’t even feel going in and the medicine is like a tiny bit uncomfortable going in. I do have to go get my blood drawn 2x a week for 2 weeks and then monthly though so they can watch my platelet levels and make sure they are normal..

Nearly 14 weeks, morning sickness is completly gone and I feel amazing, just can’t wait for the kicks to start, trying to be possitive but with all the nausea gone and feeling so good, some days outside my swelling belly I can’t tell I am pregnant. Unless you count the irrational meltdown of tears that happened in a restaurant today cause I didn’t want to eat anything on their menu and their bathrooms were dirty haha, or the 20 minutes of puking this morning all over a stinky Dave fart, I am serious, it was a mess, I barfed in my towel, then in the sink before finally making it to the toilett. Then it wouldn’t stop as I tried to rinse my towel out in the tub, and then clean out the sink, the smell of stomach acid kept making me puke more, it was a mess. Dave says it will go down in history as his best fart ever haha.

All in all, things are going well.

  1. I started feeling little flutters at about 14 weeks this time, so hopefully you will too! It’s the best!

  2. That fart story is hilarious. Sorry!

    • It’s ok, even I think it’s funny in hindsight, AFTER barfing all over the damn hotel room. I was so embarassed. I hate barfing. So much barfing has gone on this pregnancy.

  3. yay for neary14 weeks! I am so happy the sickness is going away!

    • Thanks πŸ™‚
      I just want to feel the baby moving already, or have a dopler so I can hear the heart, it’s a hard stage emotionally cause I feel so great, it’s easy to forget your pregnant, minus the fact that my pant’s can’t button up.

  4. I’m glad you had a good weekend too… it sounds like a fab trip and fab eating! My dad is from Digby, you know, but I’ve only ever been once, and I was five. Sigh. Your life sounds so exotic to me.
    I’m glad the Fragmin isn’t too much of a bother, and that you’re feeling better… aside from that fart. Oh, husbands. Mine would totally feel pride over such a momentous fart.

    • Exotic haha. If you ever get to Halifax, NS then I will take you to Digby, it’s only 2 hours from here. You can have some Digby world famous Scallops.

  5. Almost 14 weeks! πŸ™‚ So exciting. I’m glad your morning sickness is going away and your already getting used to the daily shots.
    This was a great post. Sounds so positive. I’m glad you had a good weekend.

    • I am glad to be morning sickness free as well, I just lived with it cause it meant I was growing a baby. Anything for the baby.
      Trying to be possitive and confident I am doing what’s best for me and my baby and just hoping it means good things this time.
