I had to buy a belly band...

     I am so bloated from the medication that I can not even button my pants any more. I went to target and bought a BeBand! This thing has been a life saver and I will be buying more!

     If I am wearing my shorts or jeans I have to wear it, I even broke out a pair of maternity pants... and when I am not wearing my belly band or Maternity pants I use the old hair tie trick

We are just 3 days away from the ultrasound and finding out if it is one or two babies.

What did you do to make your non maternity pants work a bit longer?

Beta results are back!

     We have good news! The results are back and the numbers have raised just like we needed them to! All the levels have been exactly what we need them to be so I get to cut down my progesterone shot to only 1ml instead 2ml! This is great because that means my sides should stop hurting as bad. 

    I am sick as a dog. I got a prescription for Zofran and that has been helping so much. I have been able to eat and stay hydrated. It really has been a life saver. 

     We scheduled the ultra sound for October 2nd. We will be able to see if both Embryos stuck or if we only have 1 baby that stuck. We will also get to hear the heart beat (or beats)! 

     One big step done I am officially 5 weeks pregnant today! Only 35 more weeks to go!

I am still shaking

The test came back that I am pregnant!

The HCG was 398.2 (they were looking
for anhything over 50)

I am 4 weeks 1 day pregnant today! So another 8 amazing months
that I get to keep this baby/babies safe before they 
go to their mom and dad!

4 days left...

     Yep that is right only 4 days before the blood test to find out where my HCG is measured so we can find out if the transfer worked or not! With that number you can guess if one or two stuck around but you don't know for sure until the ultrasound. 

    So what symptoms am I having today? I feel nauseous, all the time. I sleep, sleep and sleep some more than I am still so tired. I feel bloated, well I am bloated. I am so bloated. I can not even button up my shorts anymore, the medication is making me look (at least feel like I look) like I am a few months pregnant.   

Just 4 days until we find out if I am pregnant or not!

6 days to go

     You hear that just 6 days to find out if the little Embryos decided to stick around! 

     Today's symptoms are still nausea, I am so tired even after a full night of sleep I am just wiped. (TMI) Sore boobs. and terrible heartburn. I know what you are thinking those are all early pregnancy symptoms BUT they could all be symptoms of my medication too.  

     So basically if I feel like I am is kinda a guessing game. The medication I am on can give the exact same symptoms. So in 6 days we will find out is it medication side effects or pregnancy symptoms...

And I am off bed rest.

     Yesterday was the first day I could actually move around. Friday and Saturday the only time I was allowed to not be laying down was the use the rest room. I was however allowed to be propped up at a 45 degree angle to eat. I thought bed rest would be awesome I mean my husband having to do everything I just get to lay and bed and relax.

     It wasn't that easy. I wanted to get up and move around, I wanted to get my own water and make my own plate of food. But I held out and did complete bed rest for two days.

     I am feeling Nauseous, but I am not sure if that is the babies making their home or if I am just catching a bug.

     We are now on count down to blood test. Just 7 more days until the blood test (7 days from right now I will be at the clinic waiting to get my blood drawn!). I am so impatient I can not wait to see the results!
