5 weeks, 3 days

just call me barfy mcbarferson.

my second beta was monday, which was 5 weeks on the dot and also the day i started throwing up everything like it was my job.
2nd beta @ 21dp3dt - 11,180. which, coincidentally is how many crunches it feels like i have been doing since monday and the start of my barfing marathon.

other symptoms: continuing tiredness, constipation, dry skin, and week long migraines. i welcome all of these symptoms with open arms, after all, i have waited 3 years to have morning sickness. the migraines on the other hand? they can kiss my ass. i had them before pregnancy so i don't feel like it is one of the "joys" of pregnancy.

i went to acupuncture yesterday for the nausea, vomiting and migraines. i can home and threw up instantly so i doubt that the acupuncture was much help. my husband did get me some sea bands and besides getting a pressure ulcer from the spots on the inside of my wrists, they seem to help some. he also gave me a nice massage that helped dull my migraine. he's the best.

our first u/s is wednesday, july 2.

I barfed for MONTHS with my two. I ate SO much peanut butter because it was the only thing that helped. Something about the amount of protein in it, I dunnno. I didn't care actually, just as long as I wasn't throwing up EVERYTHING from my toes up. I hope you feel better, soon-ish!

Oh I am so sorry about all the sickness. It doesn't sound like too much fun! I hope you are able to find some relief!

Can't wait to see/hear about the ultrasound!

I sure hope I follow in your shoes - trying for too long, IVF #1 cancelled before retrieval (me for too little E2), and then IVF #2 getting to transfer. I really want to get a positive next week from this cycle! I'm having my beta the day of your ultrasound. Hope it's good news for both of us!
