BabyD: 5w1d is so early for an u/s. I would imagine the main purpose is for placement, to make sure the gestational sac is on the uterus (I.e., it's not an ectopic). We saw a heartbeat at 6w3d. It was a tiny flicker and the dr said the baby was the size of a grain of rice.

AFM, so fatigue hit me like a bus today! I've had to take 1-2 hour naps the past two days, but today, I was awake for only 4 hours and had to nap for 2 hours. It's a good thing I'm on vacation, but not sure what happens when I go back to work on Weds. I had to cancel sightseeing and hope to at least make it to the hotel pool today. Anyone else experience this?

You are a few days maybe a week ahead of me, but I've had some pretty bad fatigue, where I just want to sleep all day. In fact I did nap most of yesterday! I have been laying down at lunch when I work from home and that is helping. I also rest my eyes at the end of the day. If only for 15 mins it seems to help. Otherwise I've been going to bed a lot earlier, like 1-2 hours earlier than normal.

Hey all... so my hcg level isn't doubling anymore.. my first was at 12dp5dt and was 777, my second was today at 17dp5dt was 3706... I know it's still going up, but at 5w1d.. shouldn't it be going up a lot higher before slowing down?

It's still doubling within the normal limits, which is every 48-72 hours. It does slow down, and the more important part now if that your US was fine! I wouldn't worry about the beta at all. Just relax and wait for your next US!

Sept - glad you made it over! Sorry you're sick too . I still have a cough today and every time I cough hard I worry I'm shaking the baby loose jk, kind of

BabyD - I'll echo what everyone said about the betas slowing down. I think you're in good shape. Sorry this waiting is so hard.

First- the fatigue has finally hit me too. I've had the worst insomnia and been wired but I think that is over now. This afternoon I was sooo tired and really wanted to nap. We're expending a lot of energy growing these babies!

AFM - ultrasound tomorrow morning at 7am so 10 hrs to go I was hoping to see the heartbeat but it sounds more like I'll probably just see the gestational sac. As long as it's in the uterus I am happy!!

First, omg the fatigue in the beginning was awful!! I could barely make it through the day and took a nap every day when I got home. Told hubby most days that he needed to cook or pick up take out. Thankfully it's gotten better.

Em, ultrasound tomorrow morning!!! Yay!

Ali your ultrasound Wed!! Glad the MS has helped your peace of mind. Though sorry you are sick.

BabyD, I have already said my piece to you on the other thread. I'm sure you're going to see a beautiful heartbeat next week! Hopefully you can keep busy for the next week and think good thoughts!!
