I promised I would write up a post on what I think was so different about this month. I will start with an update. The pregnancy migraines have already started. Last night I spent the evening in bed with my SootheAway machine. I am really glad I have it but I still hate these headaches. Even though I hate having these headaches, they make me feel better. I am starting to have all my typical pregnancy symptoms – bloating, cramping, breast tenderness, and the biggest one of all, headaches.
The doctor called today with my first hCG level results. They were 200! This is a really good sign. All of my ectopics and miscarriages started with numbers much lower. I told him I was anxious to start the prometrium. He doesn’t really think I need it and to be honest, there is a lot of conflicting information about taking prometrium, so he may be right. But, just the same I want to take it. I had three losses before I started taking the prometrium and finally had a successful pregnancy so I just don’t want to chance it. The big reason he doesn’t want to start me on it yet though is because of my history of ectopics. If this is ectopic the progesterone would help the baby to thrive and could make it harder to diagnose or if it is in the tube it could increase my chances of my tube rupturing, so I totally understand his logic. I just hate it. I want to start it now so I can feel better.
I had my second beta drawn today so hopefully (more…)
