Nothing new to report, I am missing in action due to bad nausea and daily vomiting. This week I am vomiting about 4-5 times a day, and sleeping as much as I can so that I don't have to vomit more. Yesterday I slept 13 hours! I have lost a bit of weight as well, but my pants are getting tighter, so I am guessing that the uterus is growing.
I asked a friend of mine who is a physician and has his own ultrasound to have a look today, and he could not even see the gestational sac! this of course worried him (although he was looking transabdominally at my retroverted uterus, so it is not that unusual not to find it if you don't have experience), and he asked me if I have already had an ultrasound to confirm my pregnancy. He seemed to think that I am not pregnant anymore, or something strange like that. I normally would be very worried, but tonight for once I decided that my own body is able to tell me the truth better than any machine with poor resolution: I am so nauseated I could die, I sleep half the day, and my uterus is visibly growing. I worried a little though, and so I did ask my OB if he wants to have a look sometime next week. He was totally unconcerned and told me that unless I have a giant HCG secreting tumour, I am probably still pregnant. We concluded that I should be able to tolerate one week going by without needing an ultrasound to tell me that I am still pregnant...That being said, I am probably going to hunt him down tomorrow to do a quickie ultrasound just because I am crazy.
