Black box

(Status: 6w2d today. Next beta is Wednesday, and our ultrasound is Friday!)

Early pregnancy has its own challenges. It's too early to have real symptoms that can't also be attributed to the meds, and so there's no feedback or reassurance that there's actually something growing in there! It's not unlike the black box of going through IF treatment - where you do all the steps they tell you to, and you hope things are happening, but you don't really know until you have an ultrasound or bloodwork to confirm what's happening.

I do have cramping and twinges, and I'm a little smell/texture sensitive, but otherwise I feel like I always do (but happier. :) I look forward to being further along and showing (not to mention then I get to tell people about it!) and eventually having the physical connection of knowing my little guy is moving around in there. But in the meantime, it's just more waiting...

Really looking forward to getting through this week with hopefully great beta numbers and a great ultrasound.


  1. Woohoo!! Hoping that the next couple days go quickly for you! Thinking of you on your Beta day & U/S!

  2. All you have to do is get through tomorrow. I am rooting for a kick ass beta and a perfect ultrasound. Sending you positive thoughts.

  3. That is so true! I had never really thought what it would be like after a BFP, and it really is just more waiting. Happier waiting, true, but for me, also more anxiety-ridden.

    Fingers crossed for a fantastic beta and ultrasound for you this week!

  4. The waiting of early pregnancy is TORTURE!!! Nothing really to rely upon other than pee sticks and beta results. But tomorrow you'll see your little one on the ultrasound, and it will be amazing! Sending you good thoughts!!!

  5. Thinking of you and praying for your u/s tomorrow. <3
