I am whipped, as the laboring patients just keep on coming. I've also 4 big surgeries tomorrow. CindyLou is all better. No more pukiness, but she hasn't been sleeping all that well since the vomit incident. Hopefully she will settle back down soon, and she seems none the worse for wear. She is back to her normal sunny self, thank goodness!
As for the little July bean, it is still only a bean. The USG shows a 5w2d gestational sac with yolk sac. (EDC July 29) It seems to look ok (good decidual reaction, etc.), but I'm concerned because I figured my dates to be about 6 weeks. It is definitely feasible (TMI) that conception happened on Nov. 4th, but I figure that's a little late for ovulation. HcG is about 10,000 (ok, but really should see a heartbeat around this level) and progesterone is a little lower than I am happy with at 14.5. So, I may be dealing with an SAB, which sucks, but it happens. I'm waffling on supplementation, since there really is no evidence that it helps (it just may make me feel like I am doing *something*!)
Nothing to do but wait and see. I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. I'll repeat the USG next week and pray a lot between now and then. The good news is that I conceived within 2 months of trying, so I still have decent fertility. This may be the universe's way of telling me to get into better shape before I start a pregnancy. Thank all of you for your wonderful comments and concerns. I promise to write more this weekend when I am finally free of laboring women for a full 2 days. (Yippee!) You guys are awesome, I mean it.
