Just wanted to drop in and say hey. Busy day with our appointment this morning. I liked the doctor I saw, but I'm on the fence about the hospital. Also, just learned there's no nursery. Man, that was essential for us with our first since my induction lasted 4 days and I didn't sleep or eat much during it. No biggie. We have time to decide. In cheesy news, seeing that little heartbeat really puts the symptoms in perspective. 😊
Trying to get the dishes done without throwing up.
H helpfully scheduled an appointment for my car during the day when I have both kids so that should be fun.
Funny story- when I was pg with DS2, DH got really pissy one morning before we both left for work about why he was the only one loading the dishwasher. I told him bc my nausea was so bad, the smell of the dirty dishes makes me dry heave. He was not buying it and was annoyed. That same evening, I tried loading the dishwasher and threw up in the sink (sorry, tmi). I was sipping water and trying to stop the heaving on the couch when he got home about 10 minutes later. I told him not to go into the kitchen. That I would clean it all up. He saw what happened, cleaned everything, and apologized profusely.
I like to throw it up in his face every once in a while to keep him on his toes.
financialdiva The dishes are supposed to be h's chore but he's behind and the sink is full!
Grrrrr. Your H and my H must be colluding. You have three tasks, DH. Dishes, trash, and cat litter. Yesterday morning, none of them were taken care of and I definitely gagged several times. Why can't he just act right?
Just remember that the hook effect could come into play soon so don't freak out if tests get lighter.
Thanks for the reminder. I need to chill and try to live in the moment for the next week until my US, instead of driving myself crazy by testing!
I got a pretty faint wondfro at 7 weeks and change last time. I tested because I was irrationally afraid that I wouldn't have a positive at my 8 week appointment. Had a great ultrasound a couple days later. I'm not tempted to keep testing this time because I can't do anything without hurling, so whether or not the baby is ok, I'm pretty confident the hcg is there.
My dating scan is next Friday. Hope the time passes quickly for both of us!
So sorry flat0422 😞I dread this day. My 2 cats are my little babies. Pets getting sick is so hard.
What is this hook effect? I never heard of it. I finally stopped testing but still have 2 wondfos left. Kind of wanted to use them up.. Especially since I'm still symptomless. But now I'm scared.
For various argued about reasons, hpts do not reliably give strong positives once HCG levels are high (I think it varies, but starting around 7 weeks iirc). If you can't help yourself and get a light line, dilute and try again.
flat0422 I also think this day is coming soon for my mutt. She's really not doing so hot lately. Aside from her insane constant allergies, the last couple of days she has been moping extra, being super slow going upstairs, not jumping into bed at night, and her back leg gave out today. My poor old girl. She is dd's best friend too. Ugh.
