Well, surprise for me--I got sloppy about charting the last couple months (was kinda depressed about the fertility stuff and figured I had a few [or thirty] more pounds to shed before I really returned to normal fertility). I'd been feeling kinda wonky the last week or so and had a few minutes to kill the other night, so I peed on a UCG strip and holy hell, I'm knocked up! My last period was short and with the symptoms I'm having it seems as though I may have conceived last cycle and am already at about ten weeks.
I'm having some absolutely heinous nausea, diarrhea, and a total inability to regulate my body temperature. Also, I had my blood pressure checked today, the first time since going Primal I think, and it's SKY HIGH ><. I have been really pretty strictly Primal since the spring... any suggestions? I have an appointment with a midwife in a couple weeks, but am unsure how much support or knowledge will be available on grain-free eating during pregnancy. I'd of course prefer to avoid taking meds at all costs!
