Ultrasound went very well. The parasite has a heartbeat and is measuring two days ahead of schedule. This would explain the high beta. My first thought was – Thank God, two less days of morning sickness. I know, it doesn’t quite work that way.
The bleeding appears to be gone. I still have to take the Endometrin though. I have another ultrasound on Tuesday and it would have been good to ask if they mean this Tuesday or next Tuesday, but I have a husband to make those sorts of calls for me. If that one is okay, I graduate from infertility to having a real OB.
The vomiting is back. So far I’ve only kept down a few sips of ginger ale today. The hubby is on his way to the supermarket for regular coke, saltines and some other stuff. And vitamin B6 and antacids. I also got Sea-Bands but can’t say they’ve helped a great deal yet. If I get much more dehydrated, we will likely go for an IV. Gotta admit I don’t really know where to do that (Terem?)
My nurse says that the frequency of my vomiting means I might have hyperemesis gravidarum. Anything more than four pukes a day is a problem (last Thursday was 11) and I’m still losing weight. I’ve lost about six percent of my body weight since I got diagnosed as pregnant. Five percent is usually cause for alarm. Ten percent means a hospital stay. Not much I can do about it except try and get better. I think it’s a little alarmist to call it HG, but we’ll have to see.
