6 Weeks

Weekly Update:

How far along: 6 weeks

How big is baby: sweet pea or pomegranate seed (why do we compare embryos/fetuses/babies to food? 🤔

IVF meds: Estradiol 2mg 3x a day. 1cc of PIO each evening. My backside (where the PIO is injected) is numb now. That’s a weird feeling to have two big areas that are just numb. They itch too which is a bit obnoxious

Symptoms: fatigue, definitely more nausea, gassy

Sleep: it’s been good. I already started sleeping with a pillow to put my leg and bloated belly on

Miss anything? Not being nauseous and enjoying food

Food cravings? Yesterday afternoon needed cake, it didn’t matter what kind, I just needed some. My husband ran to the store and it was so good.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Lots of stuff, eating the wrong thing even if it sounded good. I spent an hour curled up on the bathroom floor this morning after breakfast

Best moment of the week? Seeing the appropriate sized gestational sac and yolk sac on the ultrasound. That let me know that so far things are progressing as they should and the embryo implanted in the correct place

Next appointment: Heartbeat confirmation on 1/22
