What's your Hcg number? How important are they anyway?

I'm not getting my numbers checked this time. I just cannot handle the stress the whole Dr thing brings. I've had 7 pregnancies and one living baby (we used progesterone suppositories for him)

Anyone having cravings yet?

Not so much cravings as aversions. Fruit has been a complete turn off for me. I am hungry but not hungry and want to gag when I try to eat. I also tend to lean toward strong smelly food when...

OB appointment today

Ouch! That is tough when you end up paying so much! I cannot remember what our home birth cost, I think $1200? We paid a bit each month and then used our tax return to finish it off.
 
 
And yes!...
