Sleepwalking Through Spring

I'm so sorry I haven't been posting as much. I literally have been a sleepwalking zombie the past couple months. Why, you ask? I found out in early March that my husband and I will be expecting our 2nd child in November. I'm about 9 weeks in and feeling every bit of it. Extreme fatigue, nausea, depression, lack of motivation, anxiety, mood swings, vomiting, heart palpitations galore, headaches...you name it, I probably got it. Since I'd rather not portray my weary self to the world, I've sort of been shutting myself away. I do hope to post more in the future. And all the prayers and well wishes would be greatly appreciated.

My sister and I were talking about Erma Bombeck last night, and I have always loved this quote by her. Maybe it will help a bit. Hang in there!

"Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment, realizing that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle."

Congratulations, Ali! All the best. I would like to write and tell you and your readers about something that has helped me so much with my palpitations lately. A friend recommended I try taking Taurine. It is an amino acid and is used in supplement form for those with heart issues. I am amazed at the difference in the number and severity of my palpitations. I used to have them all day everyday, and now most of the time I'm hardly noticing them. I still have spells every now and then, but they are way shorter and way less intense. I am taking 1000mg. three times a day. I would encourage you all to research it, try it, and see if it works for you. I am so grateful to have found it. It's not a drug and has no side effects. Just wanted to share my story in case it might help someone else.

Ali,

Are you still having PVCs and if so, how often?

Thanks

Curious to hear how the taurine worked after this many years...
