Got a BFP on Saturday 1st December. Can't quite believe it, and am super cautious as I've been here before and it ended in tears. My clinic and GP won't do HCG bloods to confirm. so I have a scan booked at clinic in just over a weeks time.
My question... I have been getting really bad 'restless leg syndrome' again. I've had it on and off for maybe 2 years. Just when I think it's gone, it has come back with vengeance. I used to take 1 tramadol 50mg, knock the pain on the head and then be able to get back to sleep. However, I am more worried about taking them this time. I've tried 'Quinine' in Tonic water, extra vit B tablet on top of standard pregnacare, heat pads, hot water bottle, 10mins stretching before bed, a walk before bed and nothing.
It's really quite bad. Last 5 nights kept me awake from 1:00 - 1:30 (woke me up) and kept me awake till 5:30ish when I must have been so exhausted I crashed out on the sofa in the living room. I had a 50mg Tramadol tablet yesterday and got such relief and finally slept, but feel really guilty and don't know if it's doing any damage etc. I can't stay awake all night pacing the living room however, (so not to wake my other half) and then sleep during the day when he goes to work.
I'm Hypothyroid with Hashi. Currently on 150mg Levo, Clexane blood thinner injection, 20mg of Predinisolone (steroid), Lubion progesterone injections, 2 x 400mg of cyclogest, vit D, pregncare vit tablet and folic acid.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Can't quite believe things at the moment until the scan and I'll prob still be cautious. Taking things day by day x
