Yesterday was the 1st ultrasound. The woman who has done all but 2 of my ultrasounds was there. I was nervous, but I said a little prayer before we started and everything was looking normal. The measurements had me at 5 weeks 3 days with a due date of April 15th. So that was a bit of relief. However, the Progesterone levels were down. I had been as high at 16.8, yesterday it was 6.6 big top off for 4 nights of no PIO injections.
So I have my next appointment a week from today (Wednesday). I really hope #4 hangs on and does okay with just the Endometrin suppositories. The blood tests do not really reflect that medicine as it isn’t all absorbed into the bloodstream. So I am praying that #4 is getting enough Progesterone to be happy and healthy and grow a placenta.
So I have had the sore breasts, the exhaustion, and now today a little dizzy spell. So feeling pregnancy symptoms is a little reassurance even if I could end up regretting thinking that. I have really wanted to be able to take a little nap here and there, but the days have been too busy for that. Today I hit the wall at 2 p.m. I was just so wiped out. But rather than resting, I ended up getting woken up with calls and texts. The work is going to hit big and soon.
The timing stinks as my back is still bad. I am walking better today, but it is still painful and stiff. I spent $35 for a back brace. I hope that helps. I am just worrying that I will not be able to get the rest I feel like I need because everything is going to be on crunch mode. I’ve dealt with that before, but I just want some peace right now.
So that is the update. I hope tomorrow goes okay. I am banking on craziness at work.
