A Few More Things...

I forgot to mention that as expected, my ovaries are still HUGE. They dwarf the baby!!! I have to continue the Lovenox because of this, but the blood flow looks good so now worries there. Also I get to go off the Estrace (Estrogen) and go down to half the dose of my PIO injections. I was hoping I could stop the injections, but at least with a half dose it will last lots longer. That stuff is pretty pricy! And of course not covered by insurance!

So all in all, everything is as good as could be expected. Yay for things working! I'm going to try not to get used to it. I'm sure my body will figure out a way to screw things up!

On the pregnancy sypmtoms front, I think I have them all!!!
  • I still haven't started throwing up yet, but the queasiness is starting earlier and earlier each day. Currently it runs from around 10:30am to 7pm. So basically my whole work day!
  • I think my boobs have started growing. My bra was a bit tight, but I'm not busting out the top yet. My nipples twinge at very random moments. They hurt most of the time. Hubby says they are darker, but I don't see it.
  • I'm sleeping around 11 hours a night. I usually go to bed around 8:30pm! And I may start taking a nap at lunch.
  • I have an upset stomach most of the time. Could be pregnancy. Could be Metformin.
I was anxious to get some symptoms. I'll be more careful of what I wish for next time. I don't mind these symptoms, but piled ontop of the grossness of the Hyper-Stim that is still lingering, I feel pretty gross and none of my pants fit! I'm totally confused by that cause I have actually lost several pounds. Oh well. I'm back to wearing all skirts and dresses like I used to. Plus its a good excuse for shopping.


  1. Yay for all the pregnancy symptoms! Glad you are getting so much sleep! It's amazing how much something like incubating a little bean can wear you out! Will you be able to stop the PIO injections soon or does those continue the whole time? Love ya!

  2. Should be able to stop them by the end of the first trimester when the placenta takes over the projesterone-making.

  3. Ok cool. That will be sooo nice to be done with that!

  4. I never did get to throwing up, I just had 24/7 nausea. Seems like that's more common than throwing up, lol. I kept a stash of mints around the house (gum/tic tacs/whatever I could) to help me with it. I've seen other women use a lot of other things like smelling lemons and such, but mints always worked for me. Hopefully yours won't be too bad :) Still thinking lots of positive thoughts for you!
