So, I’m almost 6 weeks pregnant (tomorrow) and I can’t hear and have stuff oozing out of my ear. Not the sort of pregnancy symptoms I envisioned.
However, my pain is….less. It’s not gone by any means, but it’s less. I’ve discovered that the ice pack is my friend. I came to work today. I had sort of planned on not if I was hurting and giving myself one more day to heal, but someone else was sick so I felt like I needed to. I only woke up a few times last night for pain which is a big improvement. I am tired today, and I’m sure I look it, but I feel like I’m on the mend, so that’s positive.
I got an appt with my GP for tomorrow at 3:30 and one with an ENT on Nov 12th. It’s very bothersome that I can’t hear and that my ear fills stuffed with cotton, but I’ll take it over excruciating, mind numbing pain. Right now I just have steady, medium grade pain. The drops have a corticosteroid in them, so I’m hoping that they’re actually working and I’m healing, and that this isn’t just the steroid talking.
The ear pain has been so all consuming that I haven’t really been paying attention to anything else about my body. I couldn’t tell you if my boobs hurt the last couple of days when I took my bra off or not, because the pain in my head has been so. freaking. awful. Which of course makes me worried about Junebug. No bleeding or anything, really no symptoms at all. No morning sickness. Nothing.
Thursday (first ultrasound day) can’t get here soon enough. Come on Junebug. I’m sorry I’ve been distracted these last few days.
