Week 6: Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Symptoms: extreme sensitivity to smells, cravings, fatigue, Raynaud’s attacks, breast soreness

I went back to the doctor today for my official “new ob” visit. In light of my symptoms a couple of weeks ago (see Monday, February 1), they did a repeat transvaginal ultrasound. This time, a gestational sec was observed, as was a yolk sac. However, neither a fetal pole nor a heartbeat was detected. The sonogram technician didn’t seem concerned about it; she said today would be the absolute earliest anything would be seen anyway. But the doctor was indeed concerned and is having me return in another 2 weeks for a follow-up ultrasound. Also, I have to do a 24-hour urine collection this coming weekend to check kidney function (because of my hypertension). Yay.
