Everything is going well here. My symptoms of this pregnancy are bi-polar. One day I’m like, sweet, no morning sickness and great energy – sometimes it hardly feels like I’m pregnant. The next evening I’m in bed as soon as I can right after the kids are tucked in, texting my husband a couple rooms over, asking him to please bring me a LARABAR so the nausea will calm down. Still if we are talking about levels from one to ten the nausea has never been higher than a four or five. One thing I notice, Marce and Chris will get a kick out of this, is that the smell of beef is not my friend and the foods I reach for when feeling nauseous are nuts, fruit and my beloved nut and fruit LARABARs. I never leave home without one. I need to look up what fruit has to offer so I can see why I am craving it. I know fruit offers sugar of course but I’m wondering about the minerals and vitamins my body might be craving – just curious.
I heard from the RE’s office. They are SO bad about getting back to me. Over a week ago they decreased my progesterone injection and kept my progesterone suppositories, endometrin, at the same level as it has been with three a day. TMI if you care to not read on. I called the NC last week to let them know I really wasn’t just being a baby when I said the suppositories are causing a lot of problems: burning, itching, tearing, red, hot sensitive skin. I asked if there was any way we could keep the injection higher and reduce the suppositories even down to two a day. Over a week later and just two days before my next blood draw anyway, she called back to say I could go back to 1ml injections and drop to 2 suppositories I mean if the NC or the good old doctor could have my symptoms for a day they would have made the call sooner.
And now the exciting news, in just two days, this Tuesday, we have our nine week ultrasound! Marce and Chris are planning on coming. This is when we will hopefully get to see some fetal movement. The baby is about one inch now, growing exponentially! My mind is blow at how much the baby develops each week and it sounds to me like it’s been a big week. Check out how advanced the fetus (as officially named with no more tale) is already.
