Long time, no post

Wow, I can't believe that again it's been almost a week since I last posted. Just trying to keep my food down, sleeping, and worrying takes up the majority of my time.
**I'm going to talk about my p-word symptoms now so if you'd rather not read, skip this section**
---------------------------------------------------------------------
I've started to have more symptoms but they still can come and go pretty often. I have a near-constant nauseous feeling and I have to eat something every 2 hours. If I go longer than that without food, I start feeling really sick. I also have heartburn, which I never get normally, and I've been burping like a man. Oh, and tomato sauce (the thought of it), which I normally love (pasta, pizza, anything with it) turns my stomach. I've been eating a lot of plain noodles and butter, crackers and cereal. When I can muster up the energy to take a walk it does help me to feel better but those days are few and far between. Most days I just want to go back to bed by noon, and my new bedtime is around 8pm.
I am not complaining at all. These things are helping to ease my mind slightly. Not much, because I was sick last time too, but at least for now I think (and hope) things are OK.
What eases my mind a bit more than sickness is 1. that I've increased my thyroid medicine dose, and my PCP and I are staying on top of it this time. I'm having bloodwork on my thyroid done every two weeks during the first tri. Just need to make sure the levels stay where they are supposed to, and 2. that I've gotten past the point at which last time my spotting started (and continued nearly on a daily basis). I'm hoping that's a good thing. I still check the toilet paper every time I use the bathroom and probably will always. It's good though to have NOT seen that happening this time yet.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
My appointment with the RE is Wednesday at 11am. J and I are excited and scared and just can't wait for it to be over. We just hope that everything is going the way it's supposed to in there. After that I'll have to make an OB appointment but I don't want to do that until after Wednesday.

I hear you on the tomato sauce thing. I can't have it at all. It immediately makes me sick. The only way I can stomach pizza, which I still love incidentally, is by taking a few Tums before and after.

I'm glad to hear that you're symptoms are really kicking in. I'll be praying that you're appointment goes well. I have one on the same day, so I'll be thinking of you! :)
