A Week On

It has been just over a week since having the Shirodkar (cervical stitch) placed. Physically I'm doing well I get the odd pain in the area where I'm guessing the stitch is, it's not painful it's just like a scratch type pain then feels uncomfortable. I mainly get that feeling after walking doesn't seem to make a difference if I walk a lot or a little, the midwife reassured me that this is normal and nothing to worry about unless I'm bleeding and in pain. I'm having the weekly progesterone injections which had me in tears the other day as I'm over to different NHS trusts and my GP refused point blank to give me these injections that I need resulting in me driving to the hospital to get a prescription and get the shot in my bum, as this is weekly I have to go to the Ante-Natal day clinic every Thursday for these. They really sting and are uncomfortable when sitting down as your bum muscle/fat moves when you sit down squishing the spot where it's just gone. 

Emotionally I'm managing to hold it together, just about. Any pregnant woman knows that pregnancy is a roller coaster of tears and laughing, however I spend more of my time crying. It has been very stressful for us and I have done nothing but worry to the point that google is getting fed up with me asking the same questions and I can never find the answers that I want. Which is why I'm writing about this I want to known if the pain I sometimes get in my vagina is normal without having to ring my midwife, if I had to ring her with every question or worry I would use all my unlimited minuets. I feel jealous of all my friends who are also pregnant, they are having a smooth pregnancy enjoying the kicks and the extra slice of pizza. I'm sure some of you reading this will understand where I'm coming from. On trying to keep myself from going insane I have been shopping and finding all sorts of wonderful baby items that I would love, I will be writing a list of these up some I may have and some may just be on my wishlist. 

I hope any of you reading this who are in the same boat as me can feel you relate to some of this and leave a comment if you wish I will get back to.
