I have been feeling okay. I could not sleep for the life of me last night which is rare, and I woke up at 4 am from hearing a noise which is also rare because I am a DEEEEP sleeper. Nausea for me is very litter, similar to you AngelofTroy , only if i do not eat regularly. Other than that, just super sore BBs.
Just got the call from the fertility clinic confirming my pregnancy . He told me my HCG level is looking great, it is at 1,126. I go back in tomorrow morning for the 48 hour blood work to make sure its is doubling and I should get the results that afternoon/evening.
Opretriezz, I've been up since 4am, feeling queezy and can't get back to sleep!!
I've been waking up at about 4am since a couple days before I found out! Why does that happen?
Gotta be at work at 9 hoping a get back to sleep soon!
Minties welcome and congratulations!!! I don't know how you can keep it a secret from dh, I told mine like minutes after the test, and then said I wouldn't tell parents Etc until 12 weeks, but told parents 2 days later lol!!!!
I couldn't sleep last night! I work overnight so I'm up and down anyway but I usually sleep between wake ups and it was actually a good night as the boy I support only woke a few times for quick changes if position, but I just couldn't get back to sleep each time. Feel like poo today! I've got to collect my little boy from my dad in a few minutes and he doesn't know yet. (I told my mum, but last time my dad blabbed to my grandparents right away!).
Afm, usually my body dies not handle hcg well. I'm a miserable wreck the moment I have levels over 3. But I feel fantastic! Maybe I am just so focused on work, we just opened escrow today on a new townhouse, and I wanted this baby so much and waited 7 cycles for it that I am just on cloud 9. And speaking of levels, I got mine done yesterday and I am at 4,751. Doubled 5x in one week
And to each their own, but this is my 4th pregnancy. I highly suggest getting a flu shot. I got mine yesterday. If you have kaiser, I would suggest getting it through the GYN office. They can give it to you at any appointment rather than waiting in the clinic line. PLUS you have to make sure you do not get the spray or a shot that contains *insert medical name here* which is a live flu virus. I went ahead and got mine yesterday because I'm an elementary school teacher and the sniffling and coughing has already started in my room.
As for literature, the classic 4th edition of What to Expect is really informative. For journaling, I use "The Pregnancy Journal" by Cristine Harris. It has a day by day look into your baby's development, and the margins are great spaces for impromptu notes. It will also periodically ask you for waist, weight, symptoms, notes, and so on. Both books can be picked up at Target or any book store.
