Not much to tell really. Had a blood test today, but it wasn't very informative, beyond saying that everything's okay as it is. They don't measure the hCG any longer when you get to 8 weeks, so it was basically just a progesterone check. That seems to be around the same as the last time, and the time before, so I continue on the pessaries until Tuesday, when I have another blood test. I was a little worried for a moment as they wanted the next test so soon after this one, but it turns out there is a very prosaic reason for the timing - Tuesday is apparently the pregnant girls' check-up day.
I feel pretty ordinary these days. I've had a couple of pretty full-on dizzy spells about a week and a bit ago, but thankfully nothing as serious since - keeping my fingers crossed. I have not had a visit from the vomit-fairy yet, and I don't think I will. I have been nauseous with both of my kids, but never threw up once, and this experience seems to be very much the same. The biggest problem is the crippling exhaustion. I wake up tired, get progressively more tired during the day, and as the tiredness gets worse, the nausea creeps in. By the time I put the kids to bed, I just want to curl up and go to sleep to forget about it all. I have quite a few issues with food as well - there are only very few things that seem like something that I could possibly put anywhere near my mouth (and nose, aah, the smells!), but I'm sure that's temporary.
And that's about it. Boring, I know. But that's how we like it :)
Keep it up, LB!
