Not much to report

I'm posting an update for my benefit as much as yours.

I guess I'm still pregnant until proven otherwise. That being said, I have no real symptoms to speak of. There was a time or two when I felt a twinge of heartburn (and I normally NEVER have heartburn) and one or two times before I ate when I thought I might be a little nauseous. Oh, and my left nipple has been sore, but only occasionally. Random. Other than that, nada. I guess the only thing that is a true "symptom" would be my period being two weeks late. Oh, there's that...

I do, of course, have a yea.st infec.tion from all the progesterone, which will stay with me for the next month and a half until I stop the prog.esterone. Always a lovely time.

Using my best guess (since I wasn't keeping track) I should be around 6 weeks today. My first u/s is next week, and I'm actually not nervous yet. I can't decide if that's because I already think the pregnancy is doomed, or if I'm just more relaxed now that I have my two kiddos. Planning to keep myself busy as much as possible. One thing that kind of sucks is that the musical that I'm in is opening on 4/13, so if I end up having to have a D&E or D&C next week (which I would definitely elect to do again) it would mean scheduling difficulties and a SUPER busy week following the procedure. On the other hand, it will keep me very busy and give me less time to dwell in my own pool of sadness.

In spite of the above negativity, I really am feeling pretty relaxed so far. I keep thinking that it's very early, and the symptoms could kick in at any moment (and if they do, I'll wish I hadn't wished for them!)

Glad you are doing ok! Symptom checking is the pits isn't it??! Will be praying for your u/s. Can't wait to hear about it.

I'll be thinking about you. It sucks that we are always thinking about a D&C. Ugh. Of course I really really really hope you don't have to worry about that at all!
