Good news ladies!
Beta #3: 1208 (18dpo) - it more than doubled from Thursday's number!
The nurse said it looked good and we proceeded to schedule my first u/s (!) for March 24. That should put me right smack in the mid-7 week mark. I'm sure waiting for these betas will be nothing compared to the wait for this u/s! For the record, I have never seen a yolk sac/baby, anything on an u/s - all other times I had m/c before getting the crotch cam so all I've seen is all black... this will literally be our first time and I think I might just faint!
Please continue to keep us in your prayers, I have felt wonderful knowing that I have all of you supporting me in prayer and in your wonderful comments of encouragement - how funny that our God is a 'high tech' God eh? That He's using this blogging medium to bring together people like us - who have had similar life experiences and need the support and prayers? Awesome!
I'm floating on Cloud 9 right now and I hope I stay this way after March 24th :)
Smells are starting to make its appearance - I was on my way home from brunch with my parents and picked up a chicken carbo.nara sub for my hubby (he was studying for a finance exam) - and one whiff of it in the car totally grossed me out. Then a few times during cooking and also when we went over for potluck at my in-laws on Sunday - the food I had made (which was delish) was giving me waves of gag-ness on the car ride up.
Still tired ALL the time. I wake up tired, want to take a nap during the day, (which - btw, I took one this past Saturday pm and it was GLORIOUS - just fantastic!) - just low energy over all.
Frequent trips to the bathroom (both 1 and 2 actually) - and lately around 3 or 4 am-ish (just #1 LOL).
Sorrre bbs. Also enlarged aerolas (like holy saucers -- sorry for the visual) and a few darker veins too.
The cramps from last week have worn off - at least for now - but I will get the odd 'sensation' here and there but it may just be gas, who knows for sure ;)
