Delurking with a
for Denise. I can so relate. Just take a deep breath and repeat your mantra that today you are pregnant and everything is fine. It's okay to feel okay, you really don't have to be sick to have a healthy baby. ( I know you know that, just wanted to repeat it for you)
I've been nausous at times, very tired, and have sore breasts, but that's about it. I just remind myself 20% of women have no nausa of any kind, it's okay. My hCG went up so well they quit taking it. Last Monday it was 11,040 and my progesterone is holding steady at 16-17. Still doing those fun suppositories twice a day, but what a small price to pay. Have had no spotting of any kind for a week now, so feeling more confident. My first dr. visit is next Tuesday, so waiting really sucks. Hurray to all those with that first, strog heatbeat visit behind you. It really makes such a difference to ones mental health, IMO.
I too have felt like posting here would jinx something, but feel I need the support more! We've only told maybe 5 people IRL, and that includes grandparents. We haven't told Carrie, our 3 year old, as I felt if would be too long of a wait and didn't want to deal with the negative outcome. Of course, she knows something is up. We've been so careful with conversations around her, but she asked me yesterday if I had a baby sister in my tummy. I told her I didn't know. She prays all the time for a baby sister and told my mother she was getting one for her birthday, which is February 5th. That was before we knew anything, so who knows
