I have officially graduated from the RE!  Theoretically, I'll never have another appointment again.  It's amazing how much you get to know the people who work there from such frequent appointments.

I'm 10 weeks, 2 days.  It's hard to believe how fast this is all going.  It was so neat seeing the legs kicking and arms moving today.  Still feeling really nauseated.  NT scan is in two weeks and first OB appointment in 3.  I had blood drawn for the materniT21 test today.  I should have those results in about a week.

Here's the little peanut.  Head is down to the left and leg is top right.

Work has really been kicking my butt recently.  I'm just so tired all the time!  My regular clothes are too small, but maternity ones too big.  I hate this awkward phase!  I'll spill the beans at work at the end of the month, not that they won't have figured it out already.  I'm dressing in tents everyday!

One perfect little beating heart!

One more day!

This wait to the ultrasound is killing me!  It feels like the slowest moving time ever!  I want to see what is going on in there!  I have a fetal doppler, but obviously it is way too early for that to pick up anything.  It is surprising that I know where that is, considering that I've moved three times since I was last pregnant (including the move I'm in the middle of).  

My symptoms come and go, which is a bit unnerving to me.  Some days I feel like total ass and can hardly eat a thing.  Other days I feel fine.  I think that I've noticed that if I get a lot of sleep, I tend to feel better.

Work is kicking my butt.  It is so much work to create a new curriculum for a grade level that I've never taught.  My team is fine, but not the most efficient.  I have a nice class, but it is so exhausting and so much work.  After 10-11 hour days at work (I'm paid for 7), I'm still never finished.  I don't know that I'll ever catch up!  I have back to school night this week, which means I'll have a 12-13 hour day at least one day this week.  I haven't done anything for work this weekend, which will push me even farther behind.  Maybe after a nap I'll have some motivation.

Nap.  That sounds good.

I'll try to update as soon as I can tomorrow with whatever news we get.  I hope baby(ies?) are growing and doing exactly what their supposed to!

Welcome to Vomitville

Population: me

Nothing says fun like running out of your classroom while in the middle of a lesson to lose your lunch.  I miss the set up of my old school, where I could quickly get outside and there were no windows that faced my favorite trash can.

12 more days till ultrasound... 12 more days till ultrasound...

Uh oh, here we go again.

Have I complained about PIO yet?  I hate it. The actual injection usually isn't too bad.   It's definitely scarier than it looks. What I hate is how sore I am the next day.  And how my hips are all lumpy.  And it hurts to lie down.  Or wear pants. 

I don't have any non-sore injection spots. I moved a smidgen higher today and when I pulled the needle out, blood spurt out! I've never had so much blood after I an injection.

16 days till ultrasound. Once we see a heartbeat, doctor will let me switch to crinone. 16 more shots. 8 per hip.  

I didn't feel pregnant today.  I didn't like that. I think I'll poas tomorrow to see if it is as dark as Thursday's.

Beta take 2

My second beta was 330!  A doubling time of just over 35 hours!!  I could hardly believe it.  I've still been peeing on sticks, and the test line is just about as dark as the control.  I have to stick with the PIO until the heartbeat, then the doctor will let me switch to suppositories.  I can hardly wait for my ultrasound on September 15th!!

Work has been kicking my butt!  It didn't help that I was dry-heaving all day.

Seriously, I don't know how I am going to make it two and a half weeks for my scan.  I really want to know what's going on in there!

Can't stop peeing on sticks!

I know I'm an addict, but I can't seem to control it.  I swore yesterday would be the last day.  But, I woke up today couldn't stop myself.  I mean, the cup was right there.  The bag of pee sticks was right there.  I know that to break the cycle, I need to remove temptation, but it just feels so good!  At least I only took one hit today.

Here are all of my cheapies from 6dp5dt to 11dp5dt (today).  I don't think the darkness of today's line is going to help me stop-- it's just more encouragement.  And it's not even dry yet.
