5 weeks

I had my blood draw let Friday and the numbers came back great! Here’s a breakdown of all my beta numbers: (They look for the number to double every 48-72 hours)

17 @ 5dpt

279 @ 11dpt

933 @ 14dpt

The numbers have been increasing like they should so we’re still a go for the ultrasound on Wednesday. My questionnaire today is going to be a lot like my first one since I just did it a few days ago, but I want to get into doing them when a new week starts.

Weekly Update:

How far along: 5 weeks

How big is baby: orange seed

IVF meds: Estradiol 2mg 3x a day. I got to cut my progesterone injection half (yay!!) so I do 1cc of PIO each evening. I have a nice knot on my right injection site so I’ve been sitting on a heating pad as often as I can to get it to disperse. I’m also taking a prenatal every night and a vitamin B complex twice a day.

Symptoms: I hit a wall about 2pm and struggle to keep my eyes open. I’ve taken to laying down when they kids have quiet time instead of trying to get a chore or two done. I’m still only able to eat small meals. My stomach definitely lets me know if I over did it. I’m hoping to get one more week without morning sickness, but who knows.

Sleep: yup! I had a wonderful nap on Friday when my husband took the kids to the store for an hour and a half

Miss anything? Being able to eat a normal size meal, not needing to lay down in the afternoon

Food cravings? Still popcorn. Today I had to have mozzarella sticks and a lemonade for lunch

Anything making you queasy or sick? Just eating too much

Best moment of the week? Getting a good 3rd beta number

Next appointment: first US on Wednesday!
