7 Weeks

Seven turns 7 weeks old today!!!  May we have 33 more weeks together as one!

Today's estrogen/progesterone levels:

Estrogen:  1070 (>300)
Progesterone:  10.89 (>6)

CCRM asked me if I was ok to continue my meds for another week before they start weaning me. Well of course I am!  Weaning off the meds scares the crap out of me. So I go for another level check in 1 wk and then they may start weaning me.  Also, they called me in a prescription for Folgard.  They want me on the prescription strength folic acid even though my homocystine came back normal.  Ok with me, better safe than sorry.

Symptoms (week 4-6):

Frequent Urination (scared to see the next sewer bill!)
Exhaustion
Insomnia
Spotting (week 6)
Uterine Achiness/Pulling Sensation
Very Thirsty
Large Appetite (Kerry laughs at me on all the food commercials as I drool and say "mmmmm")

I've been very blessed with no m/s so far.  I'd be very happy to skip this one.

Today I bought my first maternity item.  It's a BellaBand which allows you to keep wearing your regular pants unbuttoned.  I figured I'd be needing this soon if my appetite keeps going at this pace.

6 days till the next u/s!

  1. Yay! I'm so glad that Seven turned 7 weeks! You really are going to have to name him/her something that means Seven or something like that :) (or is that too cheesy?). You are so fortunate to skip the m/s AND you have a big appetite - lucky girl! Re: the frequent urination, I stopped flushing every time (sorry - TMI). I would go, the water wouldn't even change colours (b/c I was drinking so much water) so I would wait to flush until the next time. Trying to be environmentally friendly! Enjoy every single second!

  3. Yay for Seven!! Happy 7 weeks to you both. And I agree, I'm in the better safe than sorry club, so if it won't hurt, Folgard and hormones sound great!

  7. I'm laughing at KayJay's comment b/c I did/do the same thing. I just go so often...particularly at night lately that I didn't flush everytime b/c I don't think I really peed that much, it was more of a "room" issue.

    So happy for you! 7 weeks! Great news on the lack of m/s...can I start guessing that you *might* be having a boy? (I reserve the right to change this guess in a few weeks...:-)). I'm jealous of your appetite...we're supposed to gain the most weight in the second trimester and I'm still not a big achiever in the food dept! Brett is starting to annoyingly encourage eating ALL THE TIME. Hugs!

  8. Already 7! So happy everything is going well!!! Remember, keep that toilet bowl clean because that m/s could sneak up on you at any time! Trust me. As far as being thirsty, keep that water flowing! You can never get enough when your pg. Can't wait to see the next u/s pic!!

  9. Yay!
    Heck, I only flush when there gets to be too my toilet paper in there. If I flushed every time I peed, I'd be doing some serious environmental damage!

  10. Wow....7 weeks already....it really does fly by....you'll see...before you know it it will be time for your 20 week gender scan!!! I'm soooo glad you aren't experiencing morning sickness...I had it before I ever got my BFP with all my pregnancies and it continued for all of the first trimester! Just think you're already half way through first trimester already....woohoo!!!

    Can't wait until you get a bump!!

    love ya!

  13. Just smiling at all your comments!!! I especially laughed at the one who thinks it's a boy. I keep remembering the truck I seen in Atlanta. It was a huge number 7 in a blue circle!!! It really caught my eye!!!
    It's grammy doesn't care if it's a girl or boy. He/She is going to loved very much.
    I love you as big as the sky, Mama
