Ok I think its starting to sink in

After the call with the nurse about today’s results it’s more real. HCG level today is 1406, which means no more blood work, for now – yeah! A break from needles, how nice. My 1st ultra sound will be on Monday at which point I’ll technically be at 5.2 weeks, clears up the whole where the heck am I, she said I’m basically giving 2 weeks free, makes sense. Then I’ll go back in 2 weeks on the 20th for the next ultra sound where they’ll expect to see a heartbeat – OMG! I’ll also meet with me RE then and make my first appointment with my OB/GYN. The future talk of course is part of what makes this more real. I’m still in a bit of shock but that’s to be expected right. Not having much in the way of symptoms, come 3pm I want a nap BADLY, I’m peeing like every 1 ½ , my stomach starts growling about every 2 hours and the boobs…my lord, weren’t “sore” until about 2 days ago then the sore started, their filling like no body’s business. One of my smaller chested friends just laughed at me all weekend and “how screwed” I am, I’m not even that big to begin with but with them filling so quickly – oh boy! Or girl ;0)   Thank you all for your well wishes and sharing in my joy. I know from experience it’s not easy sometimes, just goes to prove what selfless and beautiful woman are here and how very grateful I am to have “met” you.
