Here I am again. I can't quite believe it, and I'm perhaps in a bit of denial. Baby number 5 is percolating.
I see some familiar faces, and new ones of course. It has been over a year since I was posting last. This is pregnancy #10, and I have 4 earth angels at home. Sidney (11), Ella (3), Camden (2), and Oliver will be 11 months on 11/08/12.
I am currently 8 wks, and I go see my Peri for the second time on Monday. The first time, at 6 wks, we of course couldn't see anything but an empty sac due to my severely tipped uterus. This is usually the case, and I tried to tell them, but they still wanted me in at 6wks. I haven't told anyone IRL that we're pregnant again, and won't until probably around or after 12 weeks. I guess I am waiting to see what we find on Monday. I've just been lurking around JM for a while, not really wanted to join in convos anywhere, but the HR board is always so supportive so here I am.
Appointment went fine. We have a heartbeat, flickering away in there at 188bpm. I had started spotting and passing brown clots on Sunday, so I was a little worried, but brown is better than red. My bp has been super high for me on this and my last visit in. My Peri is not worried about the dark spotting since we see a healthy heartbeat and he's taking a wait and see stance on the bp, he agrees that it is probably just my anxiety kicking in over what we are going to find on the ultrasounds. My normal bp usually runs pretty low, and so if it is up at my next visit, then we'll focus directly on it.
I've had super bad ms, and they had called me in some Zofran last week. It doesn't work for crud! I've tried Ginger root, I've tried B6, I even bought Sea Bands. I'm taking it all, and I'm still miserable sick. I HATE morning sickness!! Next thing to try is a certain Unisom tablet. They gave me an information sheet on it, and I'm going to hit the pharmacy today.
I opted not to check my progesterone levels this time around. I'm not sure how I feel about this, part of me feels that's like not fighting for baby, but the other part of me so doesn't want to end up on injections 2x a week. I was so over being a pin cushion, and I really don't want to do it again. I'll put it in God's hands, I guess, he knows what I need better than I, right. My doctor doesn't care, he's not a big believer in the progesterone anyway, and since we have a hb he doesn't see the point in it.
So there we are. Nothing exciting, I'm pregnant, and see ya again in 4 weeks.
Thank you for the update. Im so happy for you. My ms has been terrible this time, i have 6 different nausea meds and nothing works. The unisom is amazing, it does not help with my nausea but it lets me sleep for awhile. I hope you have a great 4 weeks! TTFN.
