U/S #1 Tomorrow Morning....What Oh What Will We See?

I'm so terrified that tomorrow won't go well. We're going all the way back down to St. Louis (staying 2 nights at DH's insistence) for this ultrasound after only two betas (I'm used to 4 betas) and I'm so scared that we'll get the rug pulled out from under us like last year (pregnancy #4).

I had a dream last night that we were doing the ultrasound with Dr. S and there were two gestational sacks, two yolk sacs and two fetal poles. I was so happy. Then I woke up. You know I've been checking TP every time I go to the bathroom? Every time I've been pregnant something has happened - so I keep an eye out for a repeat occurrence of something bad from previous pregnancies. I don't want to be caught off guard again. At least not for a fifth time.

So today, at 5w4d I will enjoy this pregnancy for everything that it is and just hope that tomorrow goes smoothly.

Did I mention that I've felt sick for the past week? Quite nauseous. I'm a Saltines girl and they've been my best friends for the past 7-8 days. I haven't thrown up yet because I'm still in the stage where I can hold it in. I remember in pregnancy #2 by the time I got to 7 1/2, 8 weeks I couldn't keep it in anymore and was throwing up a lot.

I'll be 6 weeks on Monday and I wonder how much longer I'll make it without full-on bonding with the porcelain queen? Car rides are the worst - we have a 40 minute commute each way for work so that's hard enough. Can you imagine a 5 hour car ride like that? I'll bring some bags with me I guess. And snacks. Lots of snacks. I know morning sickness is a good sign, but I had it last spring and still had a blighted ovum so I'm not going to get too hung up on the odds that getting sick means healthy baby. But it came on so quickly and has progressed so fast that I'm wondering if this "version" of m/s is a good sign. I guess we just won't know for awhile.

I thought I'd amuse you with some funny stuff, since its been a while. We could call it Friday FAILs but I can't promise consistency:

So being pregnant with a "human" baby and feeling sick
because of it makes me feel like what?
Should I not feel human right now?

Or "Drizzle". Terrible name for a baby. Sorry Finn.

I'll probably be saying this in a few weeks, especially if its twins.
It'll bug the hell out of my husband.

*Question: Is it bad that I got my husband's V-Day card
at the Dollar Tree? It's super-cute!

My cats do this kind of stuff too, but behind things like
my shoes, or the leg of a chair.

Mmmm. I bed my cats would love some Cat'sHit.

I'm not a dog person but even I feel bad for the guy.
Cats are bitches and they get sh*t done.
Thats why they get to sleep where they want to I guess.

You are so lucky that you get an US so early...they are making me wait until 6w4d. I think your dream will come true and you will see two little babys growing in there! MS this early can be a good sign!

I just know it's going to be a great ultrasound. Good luck!

Cute pictures! And good luck tomorrow -- it's great that your RE will even do such an early ultrasound. Mine insisted on waiting until almost 8 weeks! I managed to get in a week early only because I started spotting. I'll be watching your blog for an update!

Good luck on the ultrasound tomorrow... can't wait to hear what the results are! You know I'm a big believer in dreams being prophetic, so I'm thinking that could be a great sign that your twins are in there :o)
I will be thinking of you!!

Bridget said...

Delurking to wish you good luck for tomorrow!

And that last picture just made me burst out laughing. Just replace me and the DH with that dog, and that could be our suffering.

Sarah said...

Good luck tomorrow, but I'm sure you wont need it! Cant wait to hear the news! ;)
