Ambiguous update

Nothing really significant to report, but, using Ollie's smell test (Jeff's sweet-spicy deodorant), I did manage to nauseate myself very slightly. It being the weekend, hopes for a scan are minimal, unless I start bleeding and get to have a fun-fun-fun trip to the ER. Fortunately, no blood and no real cramping.

I'm trying to assume that all is well, that this is normal, that it's just different from the utter consistency of the last pregnancy. Not quite working, but enough so that I haven't completely freaked out Jeff with my worry.

I'll be calling the OB's office tomorrow if the nausea doesn't return.

I'm not worried for you yet, since it isn't all that unusual for nausea to hit hard and fast and then dissipate after a couple of weeks as your body adjusts. But I completely understand why you are worried and I hate that you're having to go through that. Just keep reminding yourself that you absolutely cannot compare this pregnancy to your last one. Triplets, insane progesterone support, coming off of ovarian stimulation would all make it different.

Still, I hope you can get in to see your OB tomorrow for some reassurance.

Big hugs to you!

Ooh, glad the smell test worked. Remember: no bleeding and no cramping is a very good thing. Especially if you can still nauseate yourself.

Is it wrong that I'm trying to think of words or images that might nauseate you?

I shall spare you my best efforts, and instead say that I hope that you get whatever reassurance you need, as soon as possible.

I hope all is well.
Like others have said, each pregnancy is different.

I tried to find an email address on your blog, but can't so I'm leaving this as a comment.

You link to me over on the side (Indigo Girl) but I'm not sure if you read my blog. Just to refresh: I have twin 2 year old girls from IVF.

I recently discovered I am surprisingly pregnant through sex as well. I think we're awfully close~I am 9.5 weeks as of this comment. I just wanted to tell you that I have similar feelings as your last few posts. I am alternatively sure that I will lose this baby, okay with losing this baby, devastated by losing this baby, and tenatively thinking everything might be okay. I tried to find the heartbeat with a doppler at work tonight (even though it's early) and couldn't, so that didn't help.

Here's hoping, for both of us.

Oh Bugs,
I'm going to try to not worry for you.
I hope you get to see the OB and get some reassurance. NBHHY, so (I can't believe I'm typing this...) I hope you feel sick soon!

I hope you've been able to see your OB and/or that your symptoms have returned in a sufficient quantity to satisfy you, but insufficient enough that they aren't too bothersome.

Ok, Bugs, you're starting to worry the crowd. I'm keeping vigil that all is well.
