The numbers - 7w


HCG Level: 64675
P4 Level: 19.2

According to the nurse, all looks good! I wish the progesterone was getting a little higher, but they don't seem to be worried. And apparently it's too early to test my TSH level to see if the Synthroid has kicked in.

Friday will be my last appointment with the clinic, and then I have my first OB appointment on Tuesday, right after the holiday. It's exciting to think that I might, just might, be entering into "normal" territory. But at almost 8 weeks, I think I have at least 4-5 more weeks before I start to feel a little less nervous. My "calm" from the promising appointment on Friday is already starting to disappear.

Although I do have a new symptom. Exhaustion! Yesterday and today I'm just utterly exhausted... I'm so tempted to close my office door and curl up for a little nap. Not the best career move, though! Luckily there's still no nausea or weird cravings, and I'm still doing my best to eat healthy and curb the junk food. Oh yeah, and I woke up today with two lovely zits, very similar to what I usually get right before my period. I was hoping pregnancy might cure those! Oh well...

Here's hoping for another uneventful week and another great appointment on Friday!!


  1. I hope everything stays perfectly on track. Your first regular OB appointment! That is exciting! Won't it be nice to be just a "regular" pregnant woman along with all the other preggies in the waiting room? And I think you're lucky not to have any nausea. A zit is easier to deal with! Have a great weekend!

  2. Oops...I guess today is only Monday (re my comment about have a nice weekend). I guess I'm a little excited too!
