Yes, I am too! I read that our uteruses are already twice their size!
WOW.. already? I didn't realize it grew so quickly! I must say that scrunching my stomach together and bending over already feels uncomfortable!

I've been taking Benadryl (same ingredient as unisom) at bedtime. It's helped with my insomnia and my allergies. Hasn't helped with the nausea yet My nausea hasn't been super bad, just enough to be annoying. But the I realize it's because of the baby, and so I'm happy to have it! I know that sounds odd, but it means I'm still pregnant! I have been so worried about this pregnancy. My last beta was on 5/30 at 20 dpo and it was only 395! I'm hoping and praying that my US on Wednesday goes well

2girls - thanks for the tip! Maybe I'll try it even though it's the same active ingredient as benadryl who knows it might work I just read in my What to Expect book that the uterus will be the size of a grapefruit by the end of week 8 which was pretty shocking to me. It grows fast!

Ali - I feel the same way, thankful for the nausea. DH thinks I've lost my mind but I keep telling him it's a good sign . I'm worried too despite trying to keep a PMA. I think we'll all feel better after that first ultrasound.

Em: yes, I know about the lack of Target in Manhattan. I spent a decade there before escaping But I think there's one in Brooklyn, near Park Slope, on Flatbush Ave maybe? Just in case you really get the urge for a Tarjay day.

AFM, I'm appreciating every little bout of nausea. They mostly come after eating (?). But I did almost puke after brushing my teeth yesterday. Only 8 days til u/s #2!

Oh, I'm 7w1d now, so I will graduate from PIO to Endometrim!

First - happy 7 weeks Yay for graduating from PIO! I get pukey while brushing my teeth too. I'm considering switching toothpaste to something unflavored. Oh yeah I've been to the Tarjay in Brooklyn but it's quite a trek for me because I live in midtown.

I'm planning a trip to Target in a bit, once I get out of bed. I've been extra lazy today, very sleepy and fighting nausea and a headache. I need to get a thumb drive to take to my first US! While I'm there I'm going to check out their maternity clothes. I'm lucky, my Target is less than 5 mins away! It's actually the closest grocery. That is a blessing and a curse, believe me!

Ali - I'm jealous you live so close to Target! We order everything from Amazon and it's just not the same. I used to love pushing my cart up and down the aisles finding all sorts of things I never knew I needed
