Prego update

My HcG levels doubled within 48 hours which is exactly what it's suppose to do! Our baby is growing! PTL!!! I've had issues with my progesterone being extremely low so I've taken Prometrium the second half of the month for a couple months now. The first round of blood work showed my progesterone was 24 which was AMAZING for me but the second round showed it plummeted to 13, which is not good. The doc has doubled the amount of Prometrium I'm taking in hopes of making that number rise! Unless I feel like something is wrong, I don't have to go back until Feb. 13 and I'll have my first sonogram!

So far I haven't experienced any nausea or heartburn. The last pregnancy, that all kicked in around 6 weeks. However, I have been extremely tired. I've been going to bed around 9 every night! Last night I got 12 hours of sleep but I'm still exhausted. I am not complaining at all, just documenting my pregnancy. Actually, I was telling Chase this morning that since I'm not nauseous yet, I don't really feel pregnant. This sounds weird but I'm almost looking forward to when I am nauseous because then I'll know that I'm pregnant. With our last pregnancy, I knew something was wrong when I woke up one morning and wasn't nauseous anymore.

Elizabeth, I saw your link and was just reading what you wrote. I am sad that I have been out of the loop of the stuff you're going through. I had no idea your preg update is what it has been. You are surely in our most tender thoughts and prayers with all that is going on. Know that you are loved and if you ever need someone to pray for you over the phone or even just to be there for you in person, I know I'm not your community group, but I hope you know I'm one person you could ring out of the many you have who care for ya'll. Just one cell phone call away, rain or shine. Talk with you soon. You are LOVED.
