Pregnancy Update

So, I'm sorry it's been slow around here the last couple weeks, I'm really hoping to get back to blogging regularly next week. I'm dealing with pretty crippling anxiety that's making it hard to do anything other than lay in bed or watch TV.

The good news is, as far as I know, I'm still pregnant. We stopped betas after the 3rd one because they were making me too anxious, so I have no real confirmation -- other than I've had no spotting or bleeding and I'm starting to feel more crappy. I can also pretty much eat an enormous amount of food all day long, but I've had a few moments of nausea. But, I've also been really crampy which worries me.

I'm also on progesterone twice a day, so part of me just believes that's stopping a miscarriage from occurring even though it should have. It's also making me so tired I can barely function and causing super bloat. By the evening my bloat bump is as big as it was with Henry at 10-11 weeks.

Tomorrow, I'll be officially 6 weeks. So, I've already made it further than 3 of the 4 losses. My first OB appointment is on Wednesday, and then I have my first ultrasound on Nov. 4. Basically, we are just trying to pass the time until the 4th to confirm a heartbeat, while I know that isn't a guarantee of a healthy pregnancy, its a big step in the right direction.

Please, keep praying guys and thinking good thoughts.

This makes me so insanely happy, I've been thinking about you a lot. I'm sorry you have so much extra anxiety about this pregnancy, but think about how awesome it's going to be to squish that kid come next summer.

Although I don't know the effects of progesterone, those symptoms could be really good symptoms - crampiness from stretching and tiredness from just being pregnant! :) I was a little crampy with at least 3 of my 5 children, right at the beginning, just from the initial stretching out! I am praying that everything goes well - and I think it's a great idea to just relax and try pass the time peacefully!

Hope it all keeps going well. I think around 6 weeks is when the nausea really hit me with my pregnancies.
