I'm so sorry this is coming so late. They let us out of work early today and I hadn't heard from my nurse when I left. I ended up getting an e-mail from her as I was driving home. I had to stop and get thyroid blood work and then had to go to the store and then went home and tried to nap and then the Little Guy came home and we left for dinner and then we sat out on the porch for a while...blah, blah, blah is all you are hearing probably, right? :-) Let's get to the good stuff:
Beta #3 came in at 3830! A doubling time of 42.2 hours! I was advised to make my very first (gulp) ultrasound appointment for June 1st! They are going to look inside MY uterus and (hopefully) see a teeny-tiny little being. They are not looking for follicles or lining thickness...they are looking for LIFE...in MY uterus. Wow...let that sink in for a minute. I am over the moon happy about this. I still can't believe it's happening to me, though.
I'm not feeling anything new. Still tired, still have sore breasts. I am convinced that this baby has farmer blood running through its veins. In the last week and a half, I have only slept past 5:00am once. I wake up and can't go back to sleep. Well, on the weekend I was able to force myself to go back to sleep after an hour or so but not during the week. I'm not complaining, just making an observation.
We have the LG with us this weekend. It's going to be hard not to say anything in front of him but we want to keep it a secret for at least 3 to 5 more weeks if we can. We also have a birthday party for BJ's nephew tomorrow at his sister's house. Another tough situation. I want to tell them but I know that I shouldn't just yet. I have a very big milestone coming up next Friday that I'd like to get through first.
I showed BJ a picture on the Internet of what the baby looks like at 5 weeks. He said, "we have a worm". Men. I told him it's as big as a sesame seed. He thought it'd be bigger by now. He actually asked me last night when I thought I'd start to show. I told him that it'd be a while yet, especially since I already have a pouch. :-)
I'm sorry this is all over the place but my mind is going a million miles a minute processing all of this. Plus, I'm so damn tired I'm having a hard time keeping my eyes open and it's only 8:30. I'm so ready for bed. BJ said the baby is sucking all of my energy. That is for sure.
I hope you all have a great weekend and for those of you that have a 3 day weekend...enjoy the time off and I hope you are doing something great!
